If you’re looking for a little comic relief on your glide path to Friday, bop over and read Ted Nugent’s latest drivel at the Washington Times, “Mourning in America”. Honestly, who gave this guy a megaphone? What he knows about politics and history wouldn’t fill a thimble.
President Obama has been trying to saddle up next to former President Ronald Reagan to gain political points with the American people. That’s going to put quite the strain on your mystical smoke-and-mirrors machine there, Barry.
Because of his tax-cutting, pro-free-market, reform-minded ways, Reagan ushered in one of America’s longest-running economic booms. After a disastrous Carter administration, it truly was morning in America with his steady and resolute hand at the helm. There was a palpable feeling of confidence among Americans during Reagan‘s presidency. Americans were proud once again. How I yearn for those days.
Not so much with the Obama administration. Every poll I have read over the past year indicates that Americans are nervous, unsure and think – under the rookie community organizer – that our beloved country has lost its way. It reminds me exactly of how Americans felt during Jimmy Carter‘s wimpy tenure.
Now this is hilarious. For their first two years in office, Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan could hardly be more similar with respect to their job performance.
See that? President Obama actually has a higher approval rating than Ronald Reagan at this point in his administration. And that’s with him dealing with the worst economic situation since the Great Depression. This was evident even last summer when an ABC News/Washington Post poll showed the two men with a nearly identical approval track.
In fact, if you check out that link and the actual data, even Jimmy Carter enjoyed a higher approval rating than Ronald Reagan did two years in. Pesky facts.
And then there is this bit of nonsense:
Main-street Americans do not believe America is respected by the international community; they shake their heads in disbelief that communist China is poised to surpass the U.S. economically and think Mr. Obama has it all wrong – from energy to spending. To be fair, we can’t lay all of our problems on his doorstep, but we can blame him for exacerbating them and creating new and tremendously expensive problems. Things are so bad that there are some Americans who think Mr. Obama is out to destroy America or at to least reduce the country to the equivalent of a Third World country. Sadly, it’s hard to argue with the flow of evidence.
I got news for the Nuge, not only was world opinion dragged into the sewer by the last President to come from his political party, it has rebounded sharply, thanks to President Obama. Perhaps the Great White Buffalo Hunter should branch out a bit and speak to some Americans other than the close-minded, racist, anti-liberal tea partyists he appears to pal around with. His myopia is showing. And, dude, “flow of evidence???”
At the end of the day, it’s a real mystery to me why anyone would give an aging, misinformed rock and roll guitar player a voice on political matters. I think I’ll stick to reading Nugent’s reviews of guitars. That’s the only thing I can think of that he is an expert on.
Adding… This guy, the one who spits on our President, is the same guy who avoided the draft by going before the draft board caked in his own feces and soaked in his own urine:
So Ted Nugent roams a concert stage while toting automatic weapons, calls Barack Obama “a piece of —–” and says he told Obama to suck on one of his machine-guns. He also calls Hillary Clinton a “worthless bitch” and Dianne Feinstein a “worthless whore.”
That Nugent, he’s a man’s man. He talks the talk and walks the walk, right?
Except when it was time to register for the draft during the Vietnam era. By his own admission, Nugent stopped all forms of personal hygiene for a month and showed up for his draft board physical in pants caked with his own urine and feces, winning a deferment. Creative!
This is also the same guy who thought that this was an appropriate cover for the prerelease version of his album “Love Grenade”:
And that these were okay lyrics (from the song “Jailbait”):
Well, I don´t care if you´re just thirteen,
You look too good to be true.
I just know that you´re probably clean,
There´s one little thing I got do to you.
Jailbait you look so good to me,
Jailbait won´t you set me free,
Jailbait you look fine, fine, fine
And I know I´ve got to have you in a matter of time.
Honey, you, you, you look so nice.
She´s young, she´s tender
Won´t you please surrender.
She so fine, she´s mine,
All the time, I woke my mind.
It´s all right baby, it´s quite all right I asked your mama.
Wait a minute officer; wait a minute officer
Don´t put those handcuffs on me, what about her?
Hey, I´ll share her with you!
And this piece of crap dares question President Obama’s love of country? He’s not worthy to clean the President’s latrine.
I’m just sayin’…
