Gene Simmons voted for Barack Obama in 2008 but now says he’s “very disappointed” in the job the president has done during his last four years in office.
The makeup-wearing KISS frontman told AOL’s Noisecreep earlier this week of Obama: “He’s been a piss-poor president, as far as I’m concerned.”
While conceding GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney “has some issues I don’t like,” the “Rock and Roll All Nite” singer praised the former Massachusetts governor.
“Romney’s much more qualified. He’s a businessman, ran the Olympics into profit — it was a disaster before he came along. He’s run businesses. He knows how to create jobs.” Simmons, 63, offered faint praise of Obama.
“President Obama is a wonderful family man, and that’s where the résumé stops,” he said.
When asked during an April interview on Fox News Channel whom he was picking for president, the long-tongued entertainer replied, “Strictly speaking on the economy and in my humble opinion, Mitt Romney.”
