Aging former rock star, Ted Nugent, recently endorsed Mitt Romney for president. Two weeks ago, Romney’s son Tagg had this to say about Nugent’s endorsement.
Cool? Great? Really?
Does Tagg Romney think it was cool and great when Ted Nugent called Barack Obama a “piece of sh*t,” and when he called Hillary Clinton a “b*tch”, during the 2008 campaign – while waving two machine guns in the air? Here’s what Nugent said at the time (video below):
“I was in Chicago last week. I said, hey Obama, you might want to suck on one of these, you punk [holds up two machine guns]. Obama, he’s a piece of sh*t, and I told him to suck on my machine gun. Let’s hear for it. I said Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless b*tch?
Nugent had more violent rhetoric about President Obama this week, after having endorsed Mitt Romney for President. The Secret Service doesn’t appear amused:
Ted Nugent’s threatening remarks about President Obama at the annual National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis have earned him a follow-up conversation with the Secret Service. On Sunday, the singer remarked that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” The Secret Service, which investigates all threats against the President, confirmed to New York Magazine’s Daily Intel blog that they have in fact flagged Nugent’s comment. “We are aware of it, and we’ll conduct an appropriate follow up,” the agent told the magazine.
Tagg Romney has been silent.
Tagg Romney should be asked whether he still thinks it’s “cool” that Ted Nugent is endorsing his dad. Whether he thinks it’s cool and great that Ted Nugent called Barack Obama a “piece of sh*t” and Hillary Clinton a “worthless b*tch.” But of course, Tagg won’t be asked. Because the media is willing to enable Mitt Romney using his own family members as human shields who can act as campaign spokesmen, and embrace even the most radical haters, with impunity.
If a Democrat embraced a hater like Nugent, they’d never hear the end of it. But when a Romney does it, silence. Even Mitt Romney himself embraced Nugent a few days ago. Not a word from the media.
