Political Humor at it’s Best: The Albert E. Smith Memorial Dinner; Romney Surges Ahead in Gallup Pole
At the annual Albert E. Smith charity fundraiser, Republican candidate Mitt Romney levied a hilarious, accurate, and bruising attack, against Obama. Armed with a smile, an iron clad witt, and brutally honest sarcasm, Romney delivered some knock out punches against Obama on everything from Joe Biden’s disgraceful laughter over issues such as pending nuclear assaults, the overly touted “crisis” of Big Bird, the bias of the media, and income redistribution, just to name a few highlights. Here is a video of Romney’s stellar performance, which rocked the house:
The Albert E. Smith charity fundraiser has been an annual event since 1945, and since the time of the Kennedy/Nixon error, it has been a final stop on the campaign trail for Presidential candidates. Always a humorous event, in this instance Romney used laughter to his advantage to demonstrate the dismal failures of the current administration.
His closing remarks spoke to his regard without animosity for Obama and his family, and Romney’s sincere regard for charitable causes. Romney, who has donated 38.5% of his total income to charity in the past 20 years, is a strong supporter of charitable contributions.
As of yesterday, the national Gallop Poll showed the numbers at 52% to 45% – with a 7 point lead, a surge in favor of Romney. While other Polls do indicate a tighter race, in an interview with Greta Van Susteren, among other issues pertaining to the campaign, author and commentator Dick Morris explained the importance of the Gallup Poll, and why this surge is not only accurate, but very significant.
Meanwhile, in the crucial swing state of Florida, the “The Orlando Sentinel” has also come out in support of Romney and endorsed his campaign for the Presidency.
