When you think of rock and roll, which Republican presidential candidate comes to mind? If you answered "Mitt Romney," then you're right.
At least according to KISS frontman Gene Simmons…
Simmons appeared on Fox News Channel's Fox & Friends to discuss the 2012 race and President Obama, as well as promote his new chain of restaurants "Rock & Brews." On the program, Simmons offered his support for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in his bid to replace President Obama in the White House.
"The reason sometimes Republicans get in — including the Senate, House and presidency — is because Americans, smartly, and I applaud them for doing so, vote on the issues and not the party," said Simmons…
"America should be in business and it should be run by a businessman. That's my philosophy," said Simmons — an Obama supporter in 2008 — in a veiled endorsement of Romney for the presidency.
It makes sense that a member of KISS would be Republican. Both groups like to demean women and paint everything in black and white.
As America's "dorky dad," Mitt Romney probably loves classic rock and is super psyched about this latest endorsement. Of course, if Simmons ever plays at a Romney rally, he'll have to change the lyrics a bit. Something like, "I want to rock and roll a portion of the night, and party once I've completed all my work for the day."
