It seems our old pal Uncle Ted is up to his old tricks again; however, this time appears to have ruffled some high-profile feathers in the oval office.
You know that when ‘The Nuge’ speaks out, it can only be about one of two things; hunting or politics, and he certainly has some strong views in both arenas.
Although I may not share all of Ted’s political views, I am still of fan of what he stands for. He is a huge ambassador for our hunting heritage and his blunt, hard-edged wildlife conservation stance makes good sense most of time.
Among the latest comments by the Motor City Madman is this gem:
“Hey, if the coyote is in your living room p*ssing on your couch it’s not the coyote’s fault, its your fault for not shooting him!”
It was his comment regarding the upcoming Presidential race; however, that really got hardliners in an uproar. At a National Rifle Association (NRA) rally Ted commented:
“I’ll tell you this right now. If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
According to the newswire, Nugent’s comment was met with some concern and the 63-year old rocker and hunting activist is now under investigation by the Secret Service.
Is it just me, or does Ted’s off-handed comment merely suggest that he would off himself if the same president is re-elected? Maybe I’m hearing it wrong.
Is a flippant statement such as this warrant being investigated by the US Secret Service?
I suppose it depends on where it comes from, or perhaps Ted’s comments are merely being picked up and used as a political weapon (pun intentional)
Ah, never a dull moment in the life of Ted Nugent or the American political situation for that matter!
