Mitt Romney: Obama’s promises are like Kim Kardashian’s failed marriage.

It looks like Mitt  Romney‘s been keeping up with the Kardashians.

The notoriously buttoned-up GOP candidate lightened up on Sunday, taking a  dig at President  Obama by comparing him to Kim  Kardashian and her 72-day marriage.

“I’ve been looking at some video clips on YouTube of President Obama, then  candidate Obama, going through Iowa making promises,” Romney told  a crowd at a campaign stop in Council Bluffs.

“I think the gap between his promises and his performance is the largest I’ve  seen, well, since the Kardashian wedding and the promise of ‘til death do we  part.”


Not known for his sense of humor, Romney did manage to get a loud laugh from  the crowd with the line, which one Fox News correspondent noted was only “the  second joke he’s made” on the campaign trail.

Less than 36 hours from the Iowa caucuses Tuesday night, Romney remains at  the front of the pack, locked in a virtual dead heat against Ron Paul and Rick Santorum,  according to the latest polls.

But if he really wants to get a rise out of Obama, Romney may have to pick  another pop culture reference – the President told Jay  Leno in October that he has never seen an episode of the Kardashians’ many  reality TV franchises.

“I have not seen the show,” Obama said at the time. “I am probably a little  biased against reality TV, partly because there’s this program on C-Span called  ‘Congress.’ I have not seen the show… I think the girls have seen it.”
