Mitt Romney compares Obama’s performance to Kim Kardashian’s marriage

Pin it

Well well — it looks like the RomneyBot 2012 got a system upgrade for Christmas! I guess the scientists behind the Android President Initiative were displeased with the performance of Romney's terribly outdated reference cache after he compared President Obama to Marie Antoinette last week. He's going to need to be a little more "hip" and "with it" and "tubular" if he wants to capture the youth vote. (As the kids say.) So, how do you portray Obama as a rich, elitist, useless, and distasteful flibbertigibbet while still coming off as relatable and cool and definitely a human being with organs and such?

Do a reality TV name drop, obviously, as Romney did at a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa:

You know, I've been looking at some video clips on YouTube, of president Obama, then candidate Obama, going through Iowa making promises. 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.

Oh snap! Romney went on to say that Obama's nominees for Supreme Court were as terrible as Ashley's choice on The Bachelorette, and that his health care reform was as terrible as Rachel getting kicked off The X Factor. Honestly, he could do worse than swapping out Marie Antoinette for Kim Kardashian, but maybe the scion of an automobile dynasty should stay away from comparing his opponent to people who inherited fortunes all together.
