Mitt Romney: Obama Campaign Promises As Good As Kardashian Wedding Vows

Posted: Updated:

Mitt Romney made an unusual dig at President Obama on Sunday, comparing him to Kim Kardashian.

"I’ve been looking at some video clips on YouTube of President Obama, then candidate Obama, going through Iowa making promises," he said. "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."

Romney's comments came at a campaign stop in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The GOP candidate has recently doubled down on courting Iowa voters in a last minute push to win the January 3rd caucus.

The Kardashian reference is one of a few recent attempts for Romney exhibit cultural awareness. The candidate, who is generally known for his lack of pop culture savvy, made a reference to I Love Lucy last week and in May, claimed that his favorite book is Twilight. In 2008, he famously took heat after randomly quoting the song "Who let the dogs out?"

This isn't the first time Romney has compared Obama to a famous female, either. He likened the president to deposed French queen Marie Antoinette on Thursday.

Romney's efforts seem to be paying off-- a recent Des Moines Register poll showed him in the lead.
