On rare occasions, I see rank and file people on the left calling for violence as a political solution. Whenever I do, I criticize it sharply. However, I have never seen such vile behavior from a leader in the Democratic party, or from someone publicly promoted by a Democratic candidate. That is a Republican tactic, one that we have seen over and over again, from a broad assortment of Republican politicians and pundits. But Ted Nugent has Switch Hit Mitt, who bats from both sides of every plate, in a quandary. He does not like the criticism he is getting as a result, but he does not want to offend the many hate-centered people to whom the Republican Party has pandered to cultivate their support.

A perfectly beautiful pair! Well matched and well suited for each other! Both are arrogant, out of touch, hysterical, living in a fantasy world, and dangerous! Nugent should be watched every minute of every day - he is so unhinged! He is NOT doing Megabucks Mitt any favors, but, Megabucks Mitt thinkgs he is - delusional! But, then, this is the same party that supports Rush Limpballs - Mitt did not even sanction him, Palin and Bachmann embraced him! So, what can you expect? The marriage from hell - right her in the Repug Party! They do not have any concept of honor, and, this will just sink their approval ratings even lower!

Boycott Nugent? The though of buying anything even remotely associated with that name never occurred to me. A smart candidate would run far-far away from this hate-mongering racist, vile mouthed pig. Not Romney.

BTW...there is a BIG difference between "potty mouth" and vile mouth. Adults do on many occasions use expressive language. Nugent uses vulgar language to be intentionally offensive.

This sounds worse than anything anyone has said about mrs romney yet I still hear more discussion about how she was insulted rather than about what the NRA is hearing and supporting.....

Ted Nugent PROVES once and for all that bad music rots the brain.

I have to admit that I had never heard of Ted Nugent --- the only Nugent I can remember was the one that married Luci B Johnson, daughter to President Johnson. Although I had no idea what he was up to, I doubted that he and Ted could be one in the same.

So he is a rocker, anti-drugs and anti alcohol (according to Wikipedia). His rant seems like a drug and/or alcohol fueled tirade, but unfortunately we can't blame them for his behaviour. He is just plain vile.

Maybe Nugent isn't dangerous himself as some have said, but did you see the audience nodding ascent and then applauding as he continued his rant? What is he inspiring? Is his tirade, which by the way I do take as a direct death threat against President Obama, inciting others in the way that Sarah Palin's cross-hairs is thought to have inspired Jared Loughner's attempted assassination of Gabby Giffords, the wounding of 13 others and the murder of 6, thereby making him equally guilty?

From --- The assassination attempt [of Giffords] left Americans questioning whether divisive politics had pushed the suspect over the edge. ... "He was definitely on a mission," according to event volunteer Alex Villec, former Giffords intern.

For Rmoney to openly court this vile idiot for his endorsement and not renounce him is just further evidence of the lack of morals, or at the very least the questionable morals of Rmoney.

Excellent presentation by Ed Shultz and Lawrence O'Donnell.

Mitt Romney, ought to be embarrassed to allow his name, to be associated with Ted Nugent's...Both a vile creatures, but in different ways...But slugs, in the end come together, so that explains it to me...Hopefully, someone will pore salt on them, and we'll see them melt into the liquid scum they both are...

Ol' Ted '2 hit wonder' anti-drug (yeah, he was all for it in the '70's) and anti-alcohol (again he was all for it in the '70's) has a following. Dawg, help us he lives in TX too on a huge ranch out in BFE nowhere where he is free to shoot off more than his in fully automatic AK-47's, military assault rifles, RPG's....oh yeah...we know about this braindead POS. And yes, he is paranoid and delusional.....but it couldn't have been from all those drugs and all that alcohol that he didn't imbibe way back then, noooo. Give me a friggin break.

This walking, talking piece of human excrement DOES have a following of equally braindead, paranoid-delusional groupies and that is what you saw nodding in unison like those bobble-head doggies sitting on the dashboards of cars in the '60's.

The filth and vileness exuding from the Nugats' piehole is designed to get his minions (and add in a healthy sprinkling of Teabaggers and American Talibaners) and there ya have the mix....yes, be afraid, be very afraid. This IS what is going to come after us IF the half-black man in the White House wins it again. They want a civil war. They have been fomenting it for the last 4 years people. They live for the day they can act out their darkest fantasies on us Progressives, Democrats and Independents that do not vote their way. I am NOT being paranoid or delusional. I have been hearing this crap from the 4 years right here in my neighborhood and around town. So much hate for such small hearts and minds. It is scary.

All I can say prepared and be ready to defend you and yours because they really ARE out there (in more ways than one).

I really do hope that the Secret Service pays the Nugat a call and escorts his sorry southern end to the nearest jailhouse. Then let him rot in it for treason and sedition.

Time was, the govt thot the Commies were bad, becuz they wanted to "overthrow the government by force and violence".
Well, I guess when your govt is headed by what Santorum started to call by the "N" word, THEN it's okay to seriously talk about overthrowing it. For the White Folks to do that. "Get their country back." {Meaning the slave-holding Confederacy.}
And, Romney sees NO problem in associating himself with someone who, tho not a Commie, like the Communists {or Fascists} seems to "want to overthrow the government by force and violence".
And Romney will be a Major Political Party Candidate!!!
What has the GOP come to! "Overthrowing by Force and Violence...." Hey, it's like the Commies have {almost} won!

A Secret Service spokesman declined to directly address whether the federal agency tasked with protecting the president would be meeting with Nugent.

"We are aware of the incident with Ted Nugent, and we are conducting appropriate follow-up," said spokesman Brian Leary in a statement. "We recognize an individual's right to freedom of speech but we also have a responsibility to determine and investigate intent."

Haven't heard of any arrest threats.

Thanks to all. Many of you may not realize that, in addition to being a third rate rocker, Nugent is on the Board of Directors of the NRA. That's why Romney was so anxious to get his endorsement.

For him to be investigated after publicly endorsing the assassination of a US President is not paranoid. It is standard operating procedure in any administration.

Mitt and that is a match made in Hell.

Gee, Romney can't seem to relate to the average citizen but he gets all cozy with Ted Nugent. Yup anything to get the NRA backers.....we just love our guns. I wonder how many varmints (Mitts term not mine) he and Ted will go hunt, now that they are a

Ted Nugent reminds me of the little boy in our neighborhood when my son was growing up. He'd come up with all these ideas of ringing the doorbells, picking the flowers out of everyone's gardens, throwing eggs at cars, a sweet face on him the look of an angel. After catching him several times luring on the other kids, my son being one, I called him out. He'd have them do his dirty work while he sat back and watched, his hands clean.

My son was made to apologize to the neighbor and out of his allowance he bought her some new flowers and I helped him replant them. His apology so sincere that she actually hired him to water her flowers after school and that and he took such pride in her garden that he actually protected those flowers from the other kids.

What I'm trying to say, is Ted Nugent incites and gives ideas to the others in the audiance, those who own guns, those who are pissed off, those who are confused, and all it take is one who thinks it is his Patriotic duty to take out Obama. Deed is done and Ted can say, "hey I didn't intend for anyone to "really" kill the President, look I'm just this crazy rock star, why would anyone listen to me?" Ted Nugents hands are clean but he got what he intended.

It's obvious that Rommey would sell his soul for a vote. He is to chickshit to stand up and denounce the rantings of this violent fascist. (I would have said fascist pig but I don't want to insult any pigs, they are much better than he is.)

I hope Nugent is arrested over this. To compare the President of the US to a coyote that should be shot for being a pest and to say that he expects to be dead or in jail if Obama gets re-elected might not have been Nugent advertising to the world that he would commit violent acts himself, but it certainly has the potential to incite someone else to do it.

Other people have gone to prison for this, and it's not just paranoia or an attempt at controlling criticism, it's upholding laws against threatening violence against elected officials. His fame or any pretense of humor shouldn't save him from repercussions.

Ted Nugent is a washed-up has-been (or, better yet, a never-was) who loves his guns and is desperate for attention. I don't imagine he's the type of person who would be a welcome guest at the Romney residence, and he's not doing Mitt a favor by associating himself with him. But then Mitt doesn't seem to be discouraging Nugent's support. He'll take any votes he can get.

The fact that the Secret Service is investigating Nugent is of little comfort considering the reckless behavior displayed by some of its members while "protecting" the President during his visit to Colombia. Snorting cocaine? Inviting hookers to their private rooms? What an embarrassment to this country and, worse yet, what a slap in the face to our President.

Oh soooo many green stars I tried to send and the computer wouldn't let me yet! Myron - you are completely right - he is trying to get his loopy fans and supporters to do what SP and the Tea Party rhetoric and vilification managed to do to poor Gabrielle Gifford. He most certainly should be investigated by the powers that be - what he has been spouting is far more than rhetoric - it sounds like the Nazis trying to whip up trouble.

(Dandelion G - I love you and your son - any child can be manipulated like that, sadly - but it takes real character to benefit from the experience like that - if only all parents were like you! I wonder if you remember the name of the angel-faced cowardly little manipulative horror - it would be most interesting to see where he has ended up - in the Tea Party perhaps?)

Am I right to assume; that the secret service is still investigating this man Ted?
I am wondering why they gave him a pass.
But then; it seems like the R party can do anything. They are above the law. All they have to do is apologize and go on about their business.
The code words he used like braveheart etc have suggestions to do what-ever.
I just dread who would be activated to commit violence against certain groups.
Thx Tom;; Thx all.

"I am wondering why they gave him a pass." They gave him a pass because he did not pose a threat to the president. He did not call for Obama;s assasination either as has been reported. In fact by all accounts the Nugent - Secret Service vist was brief and cordial and they said there was no problem with Nugent.
There is something known as the First Amendment after all. That means Nugent, you, me can say just about anything we want about our government leaders without fear of arrest.

Myron Scott (70)

Max is right about the First Amendment, as people on both the Left and Right too often forget. Dandelion is equally right about Nugent's moral responsibility for his reckless speech acts. Nothing - not a single damned word or comma - in the First Amendment prevents anyone from expressing their moral outrage at Nugent's inflammatory rhetoric and, for that matter, (as far as I know) Romney's failure to distance himself from it
and the NRA for having such a batshit crazy head banger on its Board.

Ted Nugent is a crazy man that loves his guns and loves to kill things, I can not stand him, He may not be a threat to the president but think of all the idiots that listen to his disgusting music what they might do.
