Romney Zings Obama at Alfred Smith Dinner, Libtards Not Pleased

The leftwingnuts on planet Twitter typed their displeasure.

From Twitchy:



Obama is hilarious but gentlemanly about it. His jokes never cut. Romney’s jokes were savage and mean. #AlSmithDinner

Mitt Romney really doesn’t respect Obama. His jokes were intended to sting.

Noni Harris @NoniATX

No wonder can’t get positive likeability numbers. No humility, just attack jokes.

Dee Dee Cecil @deedeececil

Struck by how most of @BarackObama jokes are self-deprecating while Romney made Obama the butt of his.

Jonathan Millhouse @JMillhouse

@mattdizwhitlock, Romney’s inability to tell jokes about himself reminds the public of his high school bully days where he beat up gay kids.

@maddow I cannot believe you though Romney was so funny. I actually thought his jokes toward Pres. Obama were pretty mean.

At The Smith Dinner Romney had 8 jokes aimed at Prez delivered by Romney w/sarcasm. What’s wrong w/Romney he’s full of hate for the Prez!


Some of Romney’s best lines:

“In the spirit of Sesame Street, the president’s remarks tonight are brought you by the letter ‘O’ and the number 16 trillion.”

“I was actually hoping the president would bring Joe Biden along this evening, because he’ll laugh at anything.”

“As President Obama surveys the Waldorf banquet room,” Romney said, “with everyone in white tie and finery, you have to wonder what he’s thinking. So little time. So much to redistribute.”

Obama tried a weak reference to the unemployment numbers:

“Of course, the economy’s on everybody’s minds,” Obama began. “The unemployment rate is at its lowest level since I took office.” Here, typically, audiences might have expected a funny line. Instead, Obama looked dead-serious. “I don’t have a joke here,” he said. “I just thought it would be useful to remind everybody that the unemployment rate is at the lowest it’s been since I took office. And we’re getting to that time when folks are making up their minds.”

Actually it’s pretty much the same as it was last month. That 7.8% that just came out was misleading.  The numbers were questioned right off the bat. Seems that Marty Morgenstern, the secretary of the California Employment Development Department, substantially under-reported unemployment claims last week.  And surprise, he’s also an Obama donor. And it’s no joke.

Romney’s take:

“He knows how to seize a moment, this president, and already has a compelling new campaign slogan: You’re better off now than you were four weeks ago,” he said.

Anyway, the dinner was a chance for Romney to get in some digs at Obama before the last debate, which should be very interesting because the topic is foreign policy.
