Mitt Romney delivered a great series of jokes at the Al Smith dinner this evening in New York City.

Both Romney and President Obama attend the 67th annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, a charity gala organized by the Archdiocese of New York. The speeches traditionally feature political humor, as both candidates are invited during an election year.

They’re right, Mitt absolutely tore it up last night, and if any independent voters had a chance to see this speech, it would have added an even further layer onto the man that Democrats have been trying to portray as an evil corporate raider.

Personal favorite:

“… people seem to be very curious just as to how we prepare for the debates. Let me tell you what I do. First, refrain from alcohol for 65 years before the debate.  

 Second, find the biggest available straw man and then just mercilessly attack it…

 Big Bird didn’t even see it coming.

And by the way in — in the spirit of Sesame Street, the president’s remarks tonight are brought to you by the letter ‘O’ and the number $16 trillion.”

Watch the speech, I guarantee you will laugh your a** off…

Video: Is This Man Seriously the Leader of the Free World?

October 9, 2012 at 12:59 pm (2012 Elections, Barack Obama, Big Bird, Elmo, Mitt Romney, Sesame Street, Wall Street)

While last weeks debate clearly showed some fundamental differences in both Presidential candidates, perhaps this weeks dueling speeches make it even more crystal clear – Obama wasn’t presidential material in 2008, and he hasn’t improved in that regard in four years.

Watch this video and think to yourself, this is the President of the United States speaking…

Elmo is heading for the border in a white suburban … like OJ?
This man has nothing – nothing – to run on.  He can not talk about foreign policy, Libya, the economy – nothing of substance.  He has to talk about government funding of PBS and Big Bird.
Don’t believe me?  Obama, in the last few days, has mentioned Big Bird eight times in his speeches, Elmo five.
Libya and the economy?  Zero

Now contrast that with this man…
Which man looks like a leader, and which one looks like a joke?
Perhaps President Obama himself said it best…
“If you don’t have a record to run on … you make a big election about small things.” – Barack Obama, 2008
Mr. President, your campaign is about small things.  Your administration has provided nothing but small things.  America deserves bigger.  We deserve better.

Even Politico Isn’t Taking Obama Seriously

October 9, 2012 at 7:19 am (2012 Election, Big Bird, Chicago, Mitt Romney, Obama Campaign, PBS, Poltico, President Obama)

Even the left-leaning Politico is out there mocking the Obama campaign as having no real message for the American people.  They have a new blog posting titled, Chicago Gets Serious…, in which the first sentence reads, “…and by serious, we mean not at all serious.”

The Obama campaign is out this morning with a goofy video of the Big Bird variety, mocking Mitt Romney, as the president has put it, as going easy on Wall Street but heavy on Sesame Street.

The campaign is calling this a TV spot, but did not, as officials there usually do, say where it’s airing, suggesting this is a video for media and YouTube consumption.

As Alex noted yesterday when the Pew poll numbers came out, we’ve long warned – and been warned – about big swings in surveys in what has been a fairly stable race. But the sampling of surveys out there do suggest a real Romney bounce.

And the president, as others have noted, and his team have been going fairly small at a moment when Romney is consistent in a message and pivoting toward going bigger (the foreign policy speech, more emotion on the trail, and so forth). And this video is the kind of small ball that Boston smacked over for months.

Here’s the ad in question…

You know it has to be bad when the President has lost Poiltico.  But the fact is, the campaign has to run ads about non-substantive issues such as the funding of PBS and Big Bird, because the administration has zero real policies that they can tout as successful.  The only success he’s had in four years is the ‘I killed Osama’ chest-thumping, but even that has been tempered by the disaster in Libya.
They’re grasping at straws.  This is what happens when you put amateur hour up against an actual Presidential candidate.
