I've got the Republican Party might still be a decided on a candidates present you may have heard that.
But kiss frontman Gene Simmons says he knows who should win the White House into two -- 2012 as we get set for another debate tonight.
The rock icon -- star family jewels joins us live from London this morning I should say a good afternoon to you in London time cheerio.
Good morning good afternoon good day it's another day above ground -- -- happy -- half.
Well one thing that I know that you have been good at predicting in the past is who ends up becoming president.
And a while back you -- in -- I voted for President Bush I voted for President Clinton I voted for President Obama the next president will be governor Rick Perry.
Governor Perry worked for Al Gore and then switched to Republican.
He will be our next president I've never been wrong and I think it was a couple months ago right -- And therein lies the conundrum for all of us politics like anything else is a moving target.
Texas is a model.
Of -- economic and little political.
Sort of it's a wonderful place to go to do business where.
Corporate entities aren't punished for getting in business and creating jobs for people it's a terrific model for America the unfortunate thing is Governor Perry who's.
And economic track record on the fat mouth isn't very glib -- I'm fortunate to be a politician.
You've got to be able to get up there and wax poetic and he doesn't do very well.
But intrinsically what he later on fortune he didn't start off with.
What he later proposed is precisely economically what this country needs a flat.
Mayor Bloomberg who's a powerful attractive man in his own right and actually means well and was on both sides of the -- and is -- independent.
Is actually got it but backwards.
If you because the idea of taxing everybody and increasing everybody's taxes isn't the way to do it first.
Cut trillions from our economy renew an emergency powers -- do whatever you have to do stop building highway system but to nowhere numbered -- flat tax everybody pays 20% or thereabouts and -- -- won't have to raise taxes and Jupiter scientists -- -- you should be in politics it's going our deal.
Well -- politics are highly overrated I would prefer to be benevolent dictator.
By the way I wouldn't I wouldn't get my -- your job problem immediately -- emergency powers.
Public execution level of all drug dealers watch the drug problem go away across the border of Mexico the drug cartels -- terrorizing everybody.
We declare war the United States of America of the military declares war on the drug cartels would cross the border.
We -- drones into Pakistan.
Send our troops across the border house to house take these guys and bury them in our backyard.
Okay now that's pretty good -- an -- so are you still behind -- are you gonna choose somebody else.
I reserve my right as most Americans -- to see how deep and how transparent everybody -- I like to Governor Perry unfortunately.
-- -- got his other problems he's probably out of the race Mitt Romney I believe would make a good president unfortunately.
This country is still market mired.
And people's religious beliefs you remember when Catholics were not allowed to be president of the most yeah I think it.
I think Americans still have a big problem with the Mormon issue and that's very unfortunate.
Because they consider a person and what his religious beliefs are in my safe separation of church and state what you believe and I don't care if you believe in aliens and other planets are you in are you -- -- here's your loyalty to America and -- everybody's life or to your church paid a distinction and then vote your conscience staging of the good privilege we have -- -- in the -- Pageant to catch a few times we've been talking -- very reports year career at which time he let it be known you bid to Israel -- very pro Israel.
And I want to get your thoughts on caught off Mike caught on might not knowing it.
-- -- Nicholas Sarkozy say that Benjamin Netanyahu the prime minister there is a liar says I cannot be a Netanyahu he's a liar says Sarkozy Obama's response.
You're fed up -- them I have to deal with them every day.
Your take on the incredibly -- from London.
Number one -- President Sarkozy was actually Hungarian -- -- French what telemann Hungarian because I speak fluent from -- and any number of other languages.
Today we have voyage meat -- your senators to vote reached -- best interests what I'm saying is you crazy because it.
And other superlatives like that you're out of your mind if you have to pick one.
One -- out of the Middle East in which to lend your support to and believe that it's they're always going to be there to back you white.
Take one country out of the Middle East -- -- gonna go to Hamas led off Hezbollah led government's.
Or of the people who are gonna go and and carry the flag of democracy every year the best friend America's ever had.
In the Middle East are the Israel -- parenting.
-- you just did some what sounded tell us although we don't speak Hungarian -- sounded like it was very fluent.
Doubt if if the three -- -- to for instance go on line in and speak to somebody in Hungarian or French.
Would you have any idea how we can do that.
You're you're leading the witness your honor and I appreciate it.
You put it right over the plate and I'm about to hit it right out of the -- -- in the interest of full disclosure before the fact -- a partner import small dot com or TS feel dot com the world's largest universal language translator if you do see can get on your cell phone or on your computer for free.
