Hulk Hogan Turns on President Obama on Fox News, Dismisses '9-9-9' Plan
The former wrestler withdraws his support, possibly over hurt feelings.
President Barack Obama will be looking for one more vote come November, 2012. Former supporter and mustache advocate Hulk Hogan is apparently no longer a fan.
The retired professional wrestler and reality star took his Thursday appearance on Fox and Friends to clarify his current political feelings.
"I was a big Obama supporter and kinda, like, believed everything he said he was gonna do," Hogan said on Fox and Friends. "But now that nothing's happened..."
Hogan's real issue with the president seems a bit more personal. Obama entered the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner to "I Am a Real American," a gag in reference to the release of his birth certificate.
"I was a little upset that he didn't ask my permission to use my music, the 'Real American' music," he says, "but that's cool."
When asked where he was throwing his support these days, Hogan suggested himself as a presidential candidate on the platform of a flat tax across the board.
Herman Cain's catchphrase and tax plan, "9-9-9," was thrown out as the closest thing to a flat tax, but Hogan doesn't agree with that either.
"He's not a real American like I am," says Hoagan.
