(Newser) – Mitt Romney flung a pretty low insult at President Obama yesterday, 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 at a campaign stop in Iowa. "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."

The Huffington Post notes that Romney has lately been making more attempts to seem in-touch with pop culture, referring to I Love Lucy last week and Twilight (his favorite book, apparently) in May. He also recently compared Obama to Marie Antoinette. A Rick Santorum dig on Obama is also gaining interest, though he said it last January: BuzzFeed has the video, in which Santorum implies that Obama should be pro-life because he's black.

Mitt did not compare obongo to KK. He said that jug-ears campaign promises were as enduring as KKs wedding vows. Either way, he is calling out a first class scumbag, the current president of the United States Barack Hussein Obama .Any questions?
