While many Republicans are still trying to decide which GOP candidate they will support in the primary season, Kiss rocker Gene Simmons already has fired his “love gun” at the race’s newest candidate.
In two tweets Tuesday afternoon, the ostentatious singer predicted that Texas Gov. Rick Perry will win the presidency in 2012. While not providing any specific reasoning or argument behind his bold prediction, Mr. Simmons touted his previous record of confirmed electoral predictions as undeniable proof he will be right again.
“Gov Perry worked for Al Gore and then switched to Republican. He will be our next President. I’ve never been wrong.”
While the iconic musician may claim to be an infallible crystal ball, Mr. Simmons has on multiple occasions expressed regret for voting for President Obama. In an interview with CNBC in May, Mr. Simmons, who is Jewish, slammed the president for calling on Israel to return to its 1967 borders.
“I think [Barack Obama] is actually a good guy. He has no … idea what the world is like because he doesn’t have to live there,” the vociferous musician told a rather startled Jane Wells.
Mr. Simmons accurately predicted the outcome of the 2010 midterm elections in September, forecasting that the tea-party movement would bring “major change.” Only time will tell whether the Kiss frontman will be right again.
“Who am I to say that what they’re doing is right or wrong? At the end of the day, no matter what anyone believes in, no matter what side of the aisle you’re on, you have the opportunity to vote, and express your feelings,” Mr. Simmons explained.
