Attention Barack Obama: If you want to win over America’s crucial grunge-pop vote, you’ve got to start working a lot harder than that. Creed frontman Scott Stapp, who said he cast his vote for Obama over Sen. John McCain in 2008, appeared on Fox & Friends on Tuesday morning, as spotted by The Hill‘s GOP 12 blog, to chat with about why he feels let down with the Democrat this time.

“I’m just disappointed and had very high hopes and expectations and was really, you know, inspired by President Obama,” the “With Arms Wide Open” singer said. “I still am. You know, he’s an amazing speaker. But I just found his, in my opinion, his administration ineffective — a lot of promises but no real delivery.”

But before anyone begins to contemplate the idea of Creed performing at a Mitt Romney event, Stapp also didn’t seem too enthusiastic about the Republican. “Where’s the plan?” he asked of Romney’s election strategy. He also evoked some bipartisan nostalgia, remarking that he wished there was someone like a Ronald Reagan or Franklin Delano Roosevelt offering a bold plan this election year.

I like the Daily Show's take on this. (paraphrased) Now that Creed has weighed in, Obama will surely lose the 1996 elections.

Headline: Scott Stap endeavors to prove that his political ideas are just as irrelevant as his music.

Not to worry, Obama, if re-elected to another four more of failure ...will give you 'hope and change' ....like you've never seen before!...Then all our problems will be solved, since there will be no country left to worry about....Just what we always wanted....peace of mind.

Really. Canada has done a good job of suppressing that information.

Fox. Out of touch by at least 12 years.

I think because Obama is the first  black president, everyone had high expectations of him. Too high of expectations I think.
