Ted Nugent Lauds Government Shutdown, Decries "Monster" in the White House

by at .  Updated at . Comments

To the surprise of no one, Ted Nugent railed against the government and applauded its recent shutdown while making the rounds to promote his new album.

  • Ted Nugent Rocks
  • El Presidente

The 65-year-old Michigan rock great and staunch firearms advocate cited a recent piece he wrote for a conservative website entitled “Make My Day, Shut it Down.”

“The government is so out of control. It is so bloated and infested with fraud and deceit and corruption and abuse of power,” Nugent said Monday.

The American government and people, "it breaks my heart to say … will go down as the dumbest, most unappreciative society in the history of humankind.”

Nugent said government overreach and incompetence goes back decades, but it’s at its worst under President Barack Obama, the “monster in the White House."

Obama, he notes, “wouldn’t qualify to drive my tour bus.”

Nugent drew the attention of the Secret Service last year when he told his fans to "chop heads off" and said he would be “dead or in jail” if Obama was re-elected.

Fortunately for all involved, he is neither.

He said this week that he wasn’t making threats, but is merely afraid for his life and those of law-abiding farmers, ranchers and small business owners.

Nugent said his passionate diatribes can be attributed to being “blessed with just unbelievable energy” and he will continue living life at an "extreme velocity."

Thank goodness.

Having a debt and continuing to pile on that debt without hesitation translates into: WE don't give a shit about the future, our kids or grand kids. To owe is to be someone's bitch! I don't give 2 shits about Nugent- he is a civilian, taxpayer. Obama and that band of careless democrats are in a push to make everyone government dependent. Healthcare etc. the Tea Party is saying we don't want to shit away the rights and freedoms this country has built. Government Shutdown? I didn't realize it was even running. People who have nothing are backing Obama and those of us who have something will be damned if he ruins our kids future. Obama has an agenda and so do we the people- our agenda is to stop him no matter what gets shutdown.

Yes, it looks as though the average citizen can't put 2+2 together. Democrats have the traits of a drug pusher-give'em a taste for free and when their HOOKED- make them pay. Blows my mind how he pulled off the gay vote- getting into bed with them just months before the election and how he trashes Russia for their veiws on gays YET HE WILL stand next to Kuwait and KUWAIT won't even let homosexuals in the country and all because of oil. People can no longer think for themselves. This country is in utter disarray and the Main Stream media blames Boehner for wanting to curb spending. I don't think reality will sink in for the "HAVENOTS" until it's to late. People don't blame Nugent for being vocal and opinionated blame your Media for not telling you the truth.

He talks about government bloat. Then he talks about it going back decades. Then he talks about the Obama blame. Nugent has to get a handle on this. It call idiot talk - throw it up against the wall and see what sticks. The blame game is easy. The solution game is difficult.
