Bush, On 'Brokeback'

President Bush loves life on his Texas ranch, but he wasn't quick to give his thoughts on "Brokeback Mountain," the movie about two gay ranchers who fall in love.

During an appearance at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kan., Monday, the president was asked for his opinion by a student.

"You're a rancher, a lot of us here in Kansas are ranchers," the student said. "I just wanted to get your opinion. … (if) you had seen it yet. You would love it. You should check it out."

The question got a laugh from the audience, and Mr. Bush responded, "I haven't seen it. I'd be glad to talk about ranching, but I haven't seen the movie."

The audience laughed again.

"I've heard about it. I hope you go, ahh, you know…," then he paused, and chuckled along with the audience. "I hope you go back to the ranch and the farm, is what I was about to say."
