Romney Jokes Obama Is Like Kim Kardashian

Mitt Romney slipped in a reference to reality TV star Kim Kardashian as he took a swipe at President Obama and his promises to Iowa voters.

"I've been looking at some video clips on YouTube, of President Obama, then candidate Obama, going through Iowa making promises," Romney said while campaigning Sunday in Council Bluffs.

"The gap between his promises and his performance is the largest I've seen since, well, the Kardashian wedding and the promise of 'til death do us part.' "

The joke got a laugh this morning from Romney's wife, Ann, during a Fox News interview as the video clip was played.

"I got a kick out of that," she said about her husband's name-dropping line. "It was pretty funny. He likes to have fun."

And, yes, she says her husband knows Kardashian called it quits on her marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries after 72 days.

Romney credits her two daughters-in-law, who read People and US magazines, for helping the couple stay on top of pop culture news.
