Mitt Romney spoke tonight at the Alfred E. Smith Dinner in New York City.
He was terrific!
Via The Examiner:
That was an incredible speech.
Well done, Mitt.
Mitt absolutely aced it all the way!!
It would be a shame if this more qualified man does not get elected president.
As a Catholic, I’ve always watched the Al Smith events from New York in Presidential years (held since 1945 in honor of Al Smith, America’s first Catholic Presidential candidate – one must note that there was a rather serious discrimination of Catholics since our nation’s founding but that’s another whole history lesson).
In 1996 and 2004, the Presidential candidates were not invited due to conflicts between the Catholic Church (Al Smith is a Catholic Charities fundraising event for really rich folks to contribute to their work) with Clinton and Kerry.
I was so happy both Romney and Obama showed up tonight.
They both gave very funny speeches – both probably written by talented Hollywood/TV comedy writers – and because I am for Mitt, of course I thought his speech was better than Obama’s.
But what I loved about both of these brave men – and it takes bravery to walk through the rigor of constant campaigning now days – is that they both ended their speeches saying that “there is more to life than politics – it’s all about the kind of family man you are”.
I actually teared up at the conclusion of both their speeches because this strikes me as one of the most important messages ever – our nation needs good, strong, reliable family men. This is all that matters in the long run.

Obama at Al Smith Dinner 10/18/12
He artfully skewered him with the facts and then killed him with kindness. Perfection!
Yes, it was an incredible speech. But you know what I liked most – because I have missed it so – is when Romney concluded with, “God bless America.” I cannot recall a single instance in the last four years when Obama said that. Can you?
Reminded me of Ronald Reagan.
I needed this tonight. Humor sounds good coming from Mitt.
Mitt’s delivery was perfect, very funny and on point. He’s a warm, intelligent and charming man, so full of grace. He has vindicated himself well against the loathsome media and the regime. He reminds me of Reagan.

Smith and numerous others had families too..
Referring to the obamster as “brave” is hardly accurate. He is a sniveling, whining coward. He blames everyone and everything for his abject failure.
A brave man wouldn’t have to lie about the economy, foreign policy, or his political agenda.
A brave man would call out, condemn and fight the enemies of our country, our people and our way of life. Reagan did it. Bush 1 and 2 did it. Carter invited the hostage crisis in ’79. Clinton blew up an aspirin factory and a long-empty terrorist camp to deflect his oval office sex scandals. The obamster gets in bed with, and bows to, our enemies, while he lies about and otherwise denies acts of war.
That had to be brutally painful for the man-child Narcissist In Chief.
It seems to me that kathtech is like so many conservatives, who for some reason, feel compelled to say something nice about Obama. If I hear, ” he is a good man” , I know I will choke. I am praying that we can defeat Obama and elect Romney, a fine man who loves our Country and really believe that he can turn the economy around.
Mitt was incredible and looked like a real President. I am so proud of him.
Tonight Obama made an appearance on John Stewart’s Show and said the deaths of 4 Americans is not optimal. There will be a firestorm about this tomorrow. Its a cold cruel statement by a man who cares nothing about us. May God Bless Us With Mitt.
Let’s be honest. I abhor Obama’s policies, politics and ideology.
But that does not mean I can’t see a man – a pitiful man – who is like a puppet on the strings of so many other interests- trying to get up every day, look presentable and show up for the speech or event.
We should remember that both these men running never seem to call in sick or need to take time off. Running for the American Presidency is a brave, brave thing to do because it requires so much discipline to just dress and show up.
I could never do it. Could you? WHo do you know who could keep up with the schedule without taking a sick day?
Let’s get real. They are both brave men fighting what they think is a good fight.
I happen to think Obama’s good fight leads our nation to ruin but I am not going to deny his fortitude for at least showing up and “doing his thing”.
We do not really feel enough for how hard it is to be a politician now days. It’s so easy to deny the human behind the hype.
I abhor Obama on many levels but I will not rob him of the perception of having courage to just freaking show up every day.
“I abhor Obama on many levels but I will not rob him of the perception of having courage to just freaking show up every day. ”
Yeah, it really takes courage to vote “present” 129 times. Real courageous man there.
Saw a side of Romney that I had not seen before. His humor was priceless. To laugh at one’s self is sometimes difficult to do. He did it with a smile on his face. Obama, on the other hand, loved talking about his favorite subject (himself), but seemed to hesitate when having to be self-critical. Both speeches were, regardless, priceless moments of fun before the nastiness of the next 3 weeks. And there will be much nastiness….and lots of lies.
May God bless Romney, and bless us with Romney! God speed.
Romney had a wonderful delivery, he is a brilliant, kind, honest American.
During the debates he had to oppose both Obama and the moderator and then the press blowing up just anything like Big Bird, and he has won gracefully.
He had to endure constant unfair attacks from the Obama campaign,
I cannot wait for his 5 points to start working . Let us get our country back.
God bless the USA.
