Ted Nugent Is Worse Than Hilary Rosen, But Willard Says Nothing

When Mrs Romney took umbrage at Hilary Rosen's inopportune, but truthful, remarks, her husband and the Republican party declared that the Democrats were against stay-at-home moms.

And so the President and every ranking Democrat moved quickly to disavow Rosen's remarks and reinforce the obvious truth that mothers have the hardest job in the world - whether they work outside the home or not.

In other words, ranking Democrats threw Rosen under the bus, and she was forced to apologise for what Mrs Romney, all-too-smugly, later referred to as an early birthday gift.

Now let's flip the political coin to the other side.

Whilst speaking at the annual National Rifle Association conference, failed rock star and wannabe gunslinger, Ted Nugent, had some choice things to say about the President:-

That's right, eminent Constitutional scholar, Ted Nugent, delivers a three-minute party political broadcast in favour of Willard, chocked to the brim with lies, slander and - oh - just the occasional veiled threat.

First of all, he singles out, not only the President, but also the Attorney General. I wonder why? It's not rocket science. He accuses them of - I quote - "wiping their asses with the Constitution."

He has some words about the four liberal justices on the Supreme Court, accompanied by a shout of "Communists" from the audience. He accuses these four of being - again, I quote - "intellectually vacuous punks."

Pardon me, but the only intellectually vacuous punk I see is the one spewing lies, hatred and subtle racism.

Of course, he caps it all off with what can only be described (and what has been interpreted by the Secret Service) as a direct, albeit veiled, threat:-

"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Sounds like a threat to me, big Ted implying that he's willing to risk his life or his liberty to "save" the country from four more years of a black man in the White House.

Then, he ends by giving his own Palinesque version of our American Revolution. I think Ted needs to read some actual history. We did do a fair bit of negotiating with England before we decided to break and declare independence. And compromise has always been the bedrock of our democratic process, not decapitating people at the polls as he so figuratively describes.

And, please ... someone tell Ted Nugent that Braveheart, the movie, was the biggest pack of lies masqueraded as fiction - produced, directed and starring a racist, just like Ted Nugent.

Besides, Ted, at the end of the day ... Scotland lost. Like the Republicans.

And at the end of the actual day, after these very public and very slanderous remarks, which included a threat on the life of the President of the United States, has Willard or Ann Romney stepped forward and condemned Ted Nugent.


Remember that.


  1. Wow, could the left get anymore desperate. Nice plan to try to deflect from anything other than the economy, the GSA, Secret Service or any of the other "steaming piles" that are surrounding them. Nugent is no more a spokesman for the right than Bill Mahr is for the left. Wake up people.

  2. @Anonymous: Great, nice piece of writing, pulling out the steaming pile of BS.

    And if you think the "scandals" you're harping on are a big deal, how about the previous administration and their use of torture, starting two mishandled wars, tearing down necessary financial regulations that led to the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression, and essentially robbing the Middle Class to give just about all the marbles to the 1%?

    But noooo....you come down on President Obama and these scandals that, to be brutally frank, do not have anything to do with him. Way to go, genius--do you need a bigger shovel?

    Oh, and one more thing--if you're going to have to stones to post such nonsense, why not use your REAL name instead, coward?
