Appearing on the staunchly conservative talk show Fox and Friends this morning, KISS frontman Gene Simmons argued that America's next president should be Mitt Romney.

"Hindsight is 20/20. 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," said the musician, who voted for Barack Obama in 2008. "Americans, smartly, and I applaud them for doing so, vote on the issues and not the party," he said.

"America is a business. If you can’t afford to do something, no matter how much bellyaching everybody does – I’m so sorry, if you can’t afford it, you shouldn’t do it."

Simmons also plugged his new chain of restaurants, Rock and Brews, which launches internationally today. The franchise, he said, hires military veterans.
