Last night at the Al Smith dinner, Mitt Romney showed a keen sense of humor with an edge. As he roasted President Obama, he got in some classic digs that were as much true as they were funny.
I was actually hoping the president would bring Joe Biden along this evening, because he’ll laugh at anything.
Among the zingers, he delighted the largely Catholic audience with a reference to St. Peter:
Your kind hospitality here tonight gives me a chance to convey my deep and long held respect for the Catholic church. 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.”
His delivery was fantastic, and you could clearly see and hear President Obama laughing harder than anyone.
I never thought I’d laugh out loud – several times – at anything Romney had to say, but I did. I recommend watching the entire video.
