Gene Simmons Yanks Obama Support, Calls Him a “Piss-Poor” President

While President Obama can hang his hat on an endorsement by Hollywood actresses Eva Longoria and Scarlett Johansson, the president has just lost one vocal Hollywood advocate who recently said he was a “piss-poor president.”

Apparently President Obama’s propensity to “rock and roll all night and party every day” isn’t making him any more appealing to the most famous member of the band KISS. Gene Simmons recently used that famous tongue and voice of his to explain why this time around, the president isn’t getting his vote.

“I voted for President Obama last time around and I’m very disappointed in his job,” Simmons told Noisecreep. “He’s been a piss-poor president as far as I’m concerned… President Obama is a wonderful family man. And that’s about where his resume stops.”

Though he bought into the “hope and change” selling point in 2008, Simmons isn’t satisfied with the president’s record and perhaps doesn’t like the “change” he’s seen.  Whether it’s simply record high unemployment, the failure in leadership and outright lies on crucial foreign policy matters or even his 100 plus rounds of golf in his first term that turned him off, Simmons didn’t say. But one thing’s clear: Simmons believes Mitt Romney is better equipped to lead this country.

Mitt Romney may not have been Simmons’ ideal candidate, but Simmons is able to support the GOP contender. “But I will tell you that he’s much more qualified,” Simmons said. “He’s a businessman, he ran the Olympics… He knows how to create jobs.”

      What a well stated and highly educated response! WOW! It’s dumbasses like you who will keep this moron in office. Do you even know how to spell correctly? Can you even read these words i’m speaking or are you too dumb and illiterate to do even that? Gene Simmons is a self made man, a living walking, talking (talking the truth apparently) example of how ANYone can come to this country and become multi-millionaires. Unlike you, he made his wealth the old fashioned, tried and proven way: hard work. Do yourself a favor and stop posting your ignorant responses on articles like this so you don’t have to be embarassed ever again by people like me.

        Uh huh…let me help you out a bit, yourself.
        Ahem: *well-stated; *I’m; *speaking, or; *self-made; *living, walking, talking (*speaking the truth, apparently) example; *multimillionaires; *old-fashioned; *tried-and-proven; *favor, and; *articles like this one, so.
        Grammar check, complete. On to semantics and reasoning.
        *You do not have even the slightest idea of how the person to whom you are responding makes his money.
        *Gene Simmons is not “anyone”: he has a talent in the entertainment field, and a penchant for shock factors and face paint.
        *Music is not traditional “hard work”. Construction, farming and factory jobs are what is considered “hard work”. Becoming famous in the entertainment business is PURE luck, with a sprinkling of talent.
        *Gene Simmons is switching his vote from a man whose policies are finally starting to work, now that the buffoons in Congress are finally starting to get over their petty squabbles, to a man whose policy is, “Make me President, and THEN I will tell you what policies I’m going to put in place!” ERROR: Logic deck not found.
        *You, sir, have NO right to criticize ANYBODY. His grammar may give him the appearance of being less literate than you, but beyond that, you have nothing to go on.

    This is for you low-information and obtuse types on the right, (which is just about all of you.) who have their heads so far up their…

      haha oh very good you “Well informed” liberal lets go over some things you talked. Sorry i mean your one resource, a liberal blog talked about. Lets start by the “realistic” defense we have… If no defense is realistic then spot on William. Yes we dont have alot of money to spend on things such as defense, that does not mean we cut even more spending then we already have AND then go send more troops around the world. As if that doesnt cost more money? Our military defense systems are so poor that our Nation, the one im not so sure Mr,Obama is trying to protect, could be hit with a missile before our defense systems even could detect one was coming. Oh lets get into unemployment.. oh wow umemployment under 8% good job Obama… oh wait how about include California… okay ya here we go the Real unemployment is 14.7% . Ya foreign policy is real good too, especially when we are warned of attacks and look the other way, o o o and thennnnn we waste more money sending in troops to places we have no business being. I want you to understand one thing William im not far right in the least bit im a Libertarian who isnt very fond of Romney but Obama is ruining this Nation and everthing it stands for, I think you , “low-information and obtuse type left” need to actually look at some other “facts” outside of a liberal blog. You look very pathetic and noone in their right mind would completely switch or stay firm to their own beliefs about politics from what you just posted

    No matter who Gene supports, what impresses me more is an astonishing TV interview he did in 2011. It was so astonishing – so unlike Gene – that I was inspired to write this essay: http://bit.ly/PChzC9

    LOLOLOL “Romney ran the olympics.” Romney has done a great job at pissing off our allies as a running candidate. I’d rather not see what he could do as president.

  6. Michael B says:

    Its amazing to me people Romney is more suited to run the country when he doesnt even know how to explain his plans to his own voters unemployment went down in 41 of 50 states over 5 million jobs Ben Ladin dead but yet Bush couldnt accomplish anything when he was ij office i also read Romney is a business man he can create jobs why wait untill you run for president to be able to create jobs where was he when the president was looking for bipartisanship to help sopve our problems romney ran the olympics but on national tv he’s going to disrespect London who is also an allied nation of ours he says we dont care about fact checkers but everyday life is ran on facts fact cars need gas without gas it wont start another fact this country cant ne ran like a business Romney track record is buying a business build it up and sale it piece by piece the country cant afford that type of leadership then most people are apart of the 47% or are recipients of Medicare or Medicade and also getting SS Obama is in your corner more than you know
