Asked his opinion of the movie “Brokeback Mountain,” President Bush hemmed and hawed.

“You would love it. You should check it out,” a man in the audience told Bush Monday during a question-and-answer session at Kansas State University.

After some hesitation — and laughter in the audience — Bush said, “I’d be glad to talk about ranching, but I haven’t seen the movie.” The audience laughed some more, and Bush, who owns a ranch in Texas, allowed that, “I’ve heard about it.”

“Brokeback Mountain” is a cowboy romance about two ranch-hand buddies who conceal a long homosexual affair from their families. The movie has won four Golden Globe prizes, including best picture honors in the drama category.
