Romney-supporting Kid Rock to President Obama: 'No hard feelings'

MSN Entertainment
 
Oh, to be a fly on the wall for this meet and greet. Kid Rock, who campaigned tirelessly for Republican candidate Mitt Romney, had a lighthearted close encounter with President Obama at Sunday's Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C.
 
"It was nice," the rocker told CNN. "I saw the president tonight. He said, 'I'm still here.' I said, 'No hard feelings.'"

Bing: Kid Rock and Romney

The confab took place during a pre-ceremony reception at the White House.
 
Kid Rock, whose song "Born Free" became the go-to anthem during Romney's campaign events, remained tactful about his candidate's failure to make it to the White House.

"Well, it always stinks to lose," he said. "You cross your fingers, you try to move forward, you hope for the best. You respect the office of the president of the United States, and the great thing is, in four years, you know, we'll see what happens, we get to choose again."
 
Concluded Kid, "It's tough to stand up for something you believe in. Believe me, especially in my business. I alienated a lot of fans and people. But I believe if you don't stand for something, you don't stand for nothing."

ceWell, we certainly understand what, and who, kid rock stands for, and it certainly is not, at a riminimum, 47% of the population, taxes on the top 2%, women's choice, gay rights, immigration, students, minorities and any of the other issues that the overwhelming majority of people in the USA stood for Obama with their votes. jwt

Don't really care that much for Kid Rock's music, but I can respect his point of view and his surprising degree of tact.  Props to him for that.  Ted Nugent should be taking notes.

What an abject loser - just like Ted Nugent.  Career over, nothing but stupidity oozes out of their misguided mouths.  Just look at his goofy picture... what does he think he is, a teenager?  Sheesh!

Dude, he is the epitome of rappers. Basically if some **** didnt decide he should be paid for spreading retardedness to teenagers he would be sitting in his trailor park collecting welfare. And he does promote stupid **** thug gang douche wanna be crap, but you wouldnt know would you. Youve never listened to his garbage.

LOL, he's a singer (and not known for being an intellectual giant) I hope there aren't electors who base their vote on "who is Kid supporting?"
