KISS founder, reality show star and newlywed Gene Simmons isn't shy about sharing his political views: Over the years, he's supported former President George W. Bush's foreign policy, stated that current President Barack Obama has no idea what he's doing, and more recently declared that Texas Governor Rick Perry would be the next U.S. President.
OK, so even if they're not predictive, Simmons definitely has opinions. And in this recent interview with ComicBookMovie.com reporters Jim Littler and Nate Best, he lets it all hang out about who he thinks has the best shot in the upcoming election. Hint: Mitt Romney!

"He's run successful companies, he knows how to make money and knows how to be taxed at 15% instead of 48% if he lived in Beverly Hills the way I get taxed," said Simmons.
But Newt Gingrich? Forget it. He's got experience, but he's also got his ex-mistress as his wife. Not that it bothers Simmons.
"I don't really give a s---," he said. "I just want to know if you can do the job. I don't care what you do with your schmeckel, or who's in bed with you. I don't care if you like farm animals. Who can do the job?"
Sounds like Simmons has an open mind about a variety of subjects.
