Gene Hackman would make a lovely Ann Romney in a Hollywood movie about her life ... this according to Mitt Romney.

The Republican nominee and his wife appeared on "Live! with Kelly and Michael" this morning ... and endured a Rapid Fire line of questions ... one of which was, "Who would you pick to play each other in the movie?"

Mitt replied, "For me, my favorite actor is Gene Hackman ... so I'd like Gene Hackman."

Kelly Ripa quickly shot back, "You want Gene Hackman to play YOUR WIFE!?"

Mitt laughed ... and joked, "What was that movie he was in? The Birdcage?"

Don't worry, Mitt eventually corrected himself ... and picked a more appropriate star.

Question: Why do liberal democrats claim they hate Bush for killing innocent people in wars, but claim they love Obama even though he's also killing innocent people in wars?
-
Answer: liberal democrats do **not** care about innocent people dying....they only care about winning a popularity contest.
-
To liberal democrats, a presidential election is equal to a high school prom king and queen election; a fun popularity contest for kids.
-
Liberal democrats have never cared, don't care now, and will never care about innocent people dying.
They only care about winning arguments against the opposing team, ego-driven drivel from loudmouth know-it-alls who are just as responsible for contributing to the existence and success of the military-industrial complex and deaths of innocent people, as any far-right warmonger is.

wtf?    

If Kelly Ripa wants something to laugh at, she needn't look further than her sham marriage. What's it like to live a lie, Ripa? Sticking with your gay husband so you have a nanny for your 3 brat kids, huh?

wtf?    

Your current President Barack Hussein Obama thought there were 57 states in this country when he was running for office in 2008. Now THAT is stupidity. I guess all those yrs of pot, beer and blow affected his mind. Hmm. ..what's worse: misunderstanding a question from a piece of Jersey trash like Ripa, or not knowing how many states there are? That's why so many ppl relate to the toupee wearing Obama- they're as uneducated, classless and addicted as he is.

Don't kid yourself that voting for either candidate is going to make a difference in your life. It won't. This country is run by a core of rich people and those in government whom they see get elected.


Honestly, when's the last time things got better for you because your candidate won?

Seems fair to me. Ann looks like a man in a wig and dress.

People who don't work and don't wanna work are getting more nuts as we get closer to the election.

Funny that such an anti-gay bigot would reference a gay-themed film.

Matthew Fox would be the best choice to play Mitt. Not on acting ability, but he looks so much like him it's freaky. BTW, all you Mitt-haters are clueless about, like, everything.

I find it interesting that those on the left have a need to always denigrate, make fun of, paint conservatives as out of touch, less intelectual, stupid, etc. You all have been sucked in and walk about life with blinders on.

Seriously, Mitt Romney is really showing his intelligence. LOL Saying that a man should portray his wife. OMG and Republicans want this freak of nature for our President. Also i can't stomach the way he bats his eyes when speaking. Talk about a phony. God i hate this guy.
