Romney reveals he's a Snookie fan

GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney revealed he's a "Snookie fan" and implied he sleeps with "as little as possible," today during a taped interview with "Live! Kelly and Michael."

Mitt and Ann Romney sat down with the morning show hosts after wrapping up a fundraiser in midtown Manhattan, where he brought in $4 million according to his finance Chair Spencer Zwick.

The interview, which will not air until Monday, began as you would expect addressing topics ranging from the economy, health care and gun control to questions about their five boys and Ann Romney's battle with Multiple Sclerosis.

But near the end, in a segment called "rapid fire response," things got very bizarre.

Romney admitted he likes Snookie's "fire-plug personality" and Ann Romney described how she walked in on George W. Bush getting a massage during a White House visit.

Mrs. Romney said she was "blushing, blushing, blushing" as former President Bush jokingly winked and said "I look pretty good, don't I."

Romney also offered a glimpse into how he likes to sleep. When asked what he wears to bed, Romney quipped, "I think the best answer is as little as possible."

With uprisings spreading across the Middle East, the timing seems almost as odd as the content.

It is also in stark contrast to the President's schedule today. President Obama, Secretary Hilary Clinton and Secretary Panetta went to Joint Base Andrews to be on hand when the body of slain Ambassador Christopher Stevens was returned to the United States.

Romney delayed a rally in Painesville, Ohio Friday afternoon long enough to watch the ceremony at Andrews on TV. He held a moment of silence for the four Americans killed in Libya, but focused his speech on the ecnonomy.
