[su_right_ad]In other words, what Obama did was good and will work, but it’s wrong because Obama did it.

“If you notice President Nixon, when he was in charge, went to China and was considered weak,” he said. “I remember as a young man reading about this and I said, why are we going to China? We’re America. They didn’t have human rights. They were very, very abusive to their people. But it cracked open the doors.”

“I think once Cubans on the street get a taste of American life and the idea that free economy and capitalism actually works and that you too can rise from squalor and rise to the ladder of success — I think we’re going to win even though it’s a weak political stance. Crack the door open, bring America in there, bring Twitter, Facebook. We’ll win. The people will rise up from within.”[su_csky_ad]

    Ahh me, Chaim Witz making with public idiocy, again. As his competency is extremely limited, and his judgement worse (just look at his hair!), this kind of thing is going to happen.

    LOL! Political analysis from Gene Simmons! Bwahahahahahahahaha!

    That’s like listening to marital advice from Rush Limbaugh…

    “I think we’re going to win even though it’s a weak political stance.”

    Why is it a weak political stance, douchebag?

      Can’t tell you, but I’m sure a right winger could explain it to you. Not.

    Who in hell is talking with this clown about foreign policy? Oh, Fraud Spews, never mind!

    He should just go back to pretending to be a rock and roller…

    The perfect shmuck in drag, ‘Helmet Hair’ can join the ranks of other big-mouthed low-info hater has-been’s like pants-crapping draft-dodger turned faux patriot Telinquent Ted Nutbag…. if you have to dress up in heels & facepaint and puke fake blood to sell your stale muzak pablum then I’m not sure you are qualified to advise anyone outside of the looney bin! (or Faux Noise!)

    I don’t get it. Back in the 70s everybody in the music biz knew Simmons was a jerk. He is still a jerk. Yet for some reason I cannot fathom he is given press on political issues. He’s not even a decent bass player for dog’s sake!. Very very strange.

    • tiredoftea December 18th, 2014 at 9:09 pm

      It’s Fox and they are desperate for anyone new to criticize the President.

      • whatthe46 December 18th, 2014 at 9:37 pm

        apprently so huh? they ARE desperate that’s for certain.

    why are drug addled musicians opinions important?

    • Chinese Democracy December 19th, 2014 at 1:24 am

      Gene Simons has never done drugs.. although it sounds like he needs some

      • mea_mark December 19th, 2014 at 10:38 am

        If he could mainline money though, he would. He took a pass on drugs and soul his soul for cash.

    I was eight years old when Nixon went to China, and even *I* remember that it was considered a foreign policy masterstroke. It brought the Chinese out of the cold, and isolated the Soviets to the point that they became more open to détente and arms control negotiations.

    Only farshtinkener alter kicker shmucks like Gene Simmons would consider that “weak”.

    That city boy from New York is going around wearing cowboy boots?

    • neworleans878 December 18th, 2014 at 10:41 pm

      Wearing cowboy boots in New York City? Get a rope.

      • Chinese Democracy December 19th, 2014 at 1:27 am

        its not the cowboy boots so much as that he wears ones with riding heels .. its kinda gay looking ( we dont want him though)

  13. Sy Colepath December 18th, 2014 at 11:34 pm

    If what we are offering is the American brand of capitalism, the Cubans may want to stay isolated.

    • fahvel December 19th, 2014 at 12:58 pm

      well said – why destroy a culture with the irrelevance of the global market a la usa trying to rule the world?

  14. Khary A December 19th, 2014 at 1:49 am

    I think this says it all about Gene Simmons

  15. searambler December 19th, 2014 at 6:52 pm

    “Gene Simmons licks his own balls” would be a story. This? Meh. He has no more authority on the subject than my local tailor…..
