The Mitt Romney campaign sports a rock star supporter who is actively assisting the GOP presidential election effort.

Kid Rock appeared at a recent campaign event with GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan and shared with the crowd his reasons for supporting the GOP ticket as opposed to its Democratic counterpart.

At a rally in Michigan, which took place at Oakland University, Rock explained, “I also want to be real clear that I am very proud to say that we had elected our first black president. I’m sorry, I’m sorry he [President Barack Obama] didn’t do a better job. I really wish he would have, I do, but the facts are the facts and we just saw them come to light in the last debate with no outside BS, no bias media involved, no interruptions and negative politics ads every five seconds, and, most importantly, no damn teleprompters.”

Rock, who has appeared at other events for the Romney campaign and actually performs the campaign’s theme song, added, “I enjoyed it so much I think I might throw a keg party for the Ryan-Biden debate.”

The Grammy award winning singer-songwriter admitted that he “may alienate a few fans” with his public support for Republicans.

“But you know what I really believe strongly is that it’s okay to disagree on politics and the direction of our country without hating one another,” he said.

Rock then stated the following: “I mean it’s no secret that I am embedded in an industry that leans very left and I’ve listened to all the arguments and visions for our country.”
