Stapp made his comments this morning stating that the recession, which at home he calls “the great correction”, showed that President Obama had failed.
The singer voted for Obama in 2008, but said he is just too disappointed to support the president’s bid for a second term.
“I’m just disappointed. I had very high hopes and expectations and was really inspired by President Obama,” Stapp said. “And I still am, he’s an amazing speaker. But in my opinion, his administration [made] a lot of promises, but no real delivery.”
Stapp didn’t exactly endorse Mitt Romney, but stated he wished a candidate would lay out a grand plan for the United States.
“My heart and soul would really love someone like Reagan or FDR to come back and give us a New Deal,” Stapp explained. “Be bold, be committed, don’t care what anyone thinks. And when you tear down that wall, do it.”
Musicians have been very vocal about politics this election. The Silversun Pickups demanded that the Romney-Ryan campaign stop using their music and Dee Snider also asked the campaign to stop playing “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”
But other rockers support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Kid Rock has performed at campaign events for Romney and Hank Williams and Ted Nugent are extremely anti-Obama.
