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."

A very respectful statement by Kid. I don't agree with his politics, but I'm glad he isn't one of these people that think the world is going to end by their candidate losing. I wouldn't have behaved that way if Romney had won.
