Creed frontman Scott Stapp went on Fox News program Fox and Friends on Tuesday to weigh in on the upcoming Presidential Election. The big news? He is disappointed in Barrack Obama.
According to Huffington Post, the singer voted for President Obama back in 2008. However, his opinion of the President changed after seeing the direction Obama has gone since winning the election.
"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."
That said, Stapp did not go on air to endorse candidate Mitt Romney. Instead, he talked about leaders such as Reagan. His vote would go to someone who could "Be bold, be committed, don't care what anyone thinks. And when you tear down that wall, do it."
Creed isn't the only band who has taken political action. As reported by Huffington Post, indie band Silversun Pickups demanded that the Romney campaign cease using their song, "Panic Switch." The band went so far to say, "We're nice, approachable people. We won't bite. Unless you're Mitt Romney!"
As more politicians continue to use celebrity endorsements, more celebrities continue to express their views on them, whether positive or negative. While Creed seems to favor Romney, Silversun pickups do not. It would appear that the upcoming election has people favoring both parties, including famous musicians.
