Whoever wrote Romney’s speech for the Al Smith Dinner last night deserves a medal. One line after another, it was absolutely hilarious.
Here are just a few:
“Don’t be surprised if the president mentions this evening the monthly jobs report where there was a slight improvement in the numbers. He knows how to seize the moment, this president. And already he has a compelling new campaign slogan, ‘You’re better off now than you were four weeks ago.’”
“Campaigns can be grueling, exhausting. President Obama and are each very lucky to have one person who is always in our corner, someone who we can lean on, and someone who is a comforting presence. Without whom, we wouldn’t be able to go another day. I have my beautiful wife Ann, he has Bill Clinton.”
“I have special admiration for the Apostle St. Peter, to whom it is said, ‘Upon this rock, I will build my church.’ The story is all the more inspiring when you consider that he had so many skeptics and scoffers at the time who were heard to say, ‘If you’ve got a church, you didn’t build that.’”
