Romney supposedly likes science fiction

The response from most science fiction fans: What the fuck is he talking about?

 
He claims to like Star Trek, the show which preaches tolerance, condemns military-obsessed societies, and espouses the dream of humanity one day leaving capitalism behind forever. And have you ever seen anyone pay for healthcare in sickbay? That’s a curious form of entertainment for someone with Romney’s stances. 
Conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt interviewing Romney in 2007:

“I hope your favorite movie isn’t ‘2001: A Space Odyssey,” Hewitt joked. 

“I’ll stay away from that,” Romney said laughing.

Huh? How many science fiction fans would “stay away” from one of the finest movie examples of the genre? And seriously, fuck Hewitt for suggesting there’s something wrong with liking it. It currently holds a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, dipshit—could you possibly be more out of touch?
