Ugh...what a piece of work!

I have to laugh at him saying ..." a Democratic victory in November would mean "we'll be a suburb of Indonesia next year". Gee, as all-powerful as

Apparently Mitt's kid doesn't know much about Nugent.

A few years ago he played Houston, and went on a racist rant in front of an audience made up of many of those he was condemning.

I came to truly despise him when I saw him on tv shoot an elephant from a tree. He jumped down, breathing really hard, and blathering on about how he'd wanted to do that all his life. It was his dream come true. (barf)

He's an idiotic blowhard and I wish he'd leave Central Texas, never to be heard from again.

I haven't heard a story about Cat Scratch Fever. I think I was in high school when it came out, and before we knew how crazy he was.

The military has cancelled a performance.

I read this morning he's pleading guilty to illegally killing a bear in Alaska. Loser.

Neither dh or I like him. Hopefully he'll get some jail time & someone will loose the key

I listened to the 3 minute video, which has rightwingwatch.org on it, and didn't hear any physical threat against Obama or anyone. The context for chopping heads was metaphorical and referring to a political campaign. Obama talked about fighting his enemies with guns, but I believe that was also in a metaphorical and political context.

Personally, I'd cut Obama a break, and Nugent. Why this nonsense becomes partisan is interesting. The Obama story is here - http://www.factcheck.org/2011/01/obama-guns-and-the-untouchables/ along with it's context.

The following is a quote from the above linked article regarding Obama and his political fight speech:

"Chozick, June 13, 2008: He [Obama] warned that the general election campaign could get ugly. “They’re going to try to scare people. They’re going to try to say that ‘that Obama is a scary guy,’ ” he said. A donor yelled out a deep accented “Don’t give in!”

“I won’t but that sounded pretty scary. You’re a tough guy,” Obama said.

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”"

I don't find the "chopping their heads" off comment threatening either, just silly and immature.

The part where he says if Obama is elected, he will either be dead or in jail sounds threatening to me. What do you think he meant by that comment?

Nugent is a loser. He's s lousy musician, too...not that Kidd Rock is any better. LOL! I found his comment about either being dead or in jail to be threatening as well. If I were Romney, I'd distance myself from Nugent completely. Believe me, being endorsed by Nugent is nothing to be proud of!
