Scott Stapp may have voted for Barack Obama in 2008, but the Creed frontman said this morning on Fox & Friends that he’s “disappointed” by the president and his administration, who Stapp said have made “a lot of promises, but no real delivery.” 

While Stapp did not explicitly that he would cast his vote for Republican candidate Mitt Romney, he told the Fox News morning crew that he wanted a candidate with a clear plan that Americans could understand.  “My heart and soul would really want someone like Reagan or FDR to come back and give us a New Deal,” Stapp said. “Be bold, be committed, don’t care what anybody thinks.” 

Stapp added that he hoped he’d see one of the candidates come out as a strong decision maker in the upcoming presidential debates, particularly someone who can lead us out of the current economic recession (or as he called it, “the great correction”). 

“For me, it’s hard to commit and to trust President Obama again because I was so inspired and thought everything was going to change,” Stapp said. “I know he walked into a tough situation, but I feel change is in the air.” 

Back in April, Kiss frontman Gene Simmons stopped by Fox & Friends to say that after voting for Obama in 2008 he would be casting his vote for Romney this election cycle. “Hindsight is 20/20,” he said at the time. “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.”
