On Tuesday morning’s edition of “Fox and Friends,” Scott Stapp, lead singer of the rock band Creed, announced that he is not voting for President Barack Obama in this fall’s elections. The Florida-based rocker voted for Obama in 2008, but said that he now regrets it.
“I’m just disappointed,” he said. “I had really high hopes and high expectations and was really inspired by President Obama, and I still am. I mean, he’s an amazing speaker. Um, I just found his — in my opinion — uh, his administration ineffective. A lot of promises, but no real delivery.”
Stapp did not go so far as to endorse Obama’s opponent, former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA), but said that “What Romney’s offering” is “what’s important right now” to him, and that Romney needs to lay out his plan “so that the American people can understand it.”
“My heart and soul,” he continued, “would really love for someone like Reagan or FDR to come back and give us a new deal. Be bold, be committed. Don’t care what anybody thinks.”
“The decision thing,” suggested Doocy.
“Yeah, man, when you tear down that wall and do it,” Stapp said. “We gotta look at, in my opinion, we’ve got to look at our situations, uh, like that, and I just, uh, hope that in these debates tonight, we see someone do that.”
The first candidate debate actually takes place on Wednesday night.
He went on to say that he has a hard time committing to and trusting Obama because “I was so inspired and thought everything was gonna change.”
