Gene Simmons Endorses Mitt Romney: KISS Rocker Calls America ‘A Business’
Republicans tend to get the military vote, and if Mitt Romney wins the party nomination, he might add the support of the KISS Army. Earlier today, in an interview with Fox and Friends, Gene Simmons endorsed the former Massachusetts governor, Rolling Stone reports.
"Hindsight is 20/20," said Simmons, who voted for Barack Obama four years ago. "I have some real issues with the economy and how it's being done. America should be in business and it should be run by a businessman."
"Americans, smartly, and I applaud them for doing so, vote on the issues and not the party," he added.
That Simmons would refer to the country as "a business" is not surprising, given the blood-spitting bassist's public love affair with commerce. In fact, his comments came during a Fox appearance meant to promote his new chain of restaurants, Rock and Brews.
