Mitt Romney’s 5 Best Jokes From the Al Smith Dinner

After hearing a couple of conservatives RAVING about how funny Mitt Romney was at the Al Smith dinner last night…….

5)I’m glad to be able to join in this memorable tradition. And of course I’m pleased that the president is here. We were chatting pleasantly this evening as if Tuesday night never happened.

4) Campaigns can be grueling, exhausting. President Obama and I 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.

3) Of course the president has put his own stamp on relations with the church. There have been some awkward moments. Like when the president pulled Pope Benedict aside to share some advice on how to deal with his critics. He said, “Look, Holy Father, whatever the problem is, just blame it on Pope John Paul II.”

2) I never suggest that the press is biased. I recognize that they have their job to do, and I have my job to do. My job is to lay out a positive vision for the future of the country, and their job is to make sure no one else finds out about it…..

1) 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.
