In an interview with Detroit’s WCSX on Monday, after he showed the crew his gun and talked about slaughtering wild hogs in Texas, Ted was asked if he’d consider running for president. He immediately went into the most professional and coherent mode I’ve ever seen from him.
Politics in America are very embarrassing right now. They’re dire. I won’t go into the gory details.
Because they’d not be embarrassing with Ted Nugent as our Commander in Chief….
But he did go into some gory details, after all. He talked about Benghazi and said that he would go “on and on” but if he did so, it would cause him to “shed tears of blood, it’s so ugly out there.” But he quickly shifted back to the most urgent question. Will he or will he not run?
I’ve always believed that the most important political responsibility in America is that of “we the people” to remain engaged, and to put pressure…as much polite but firm and fact-driven pressure as “we the people” possibly can on our elected officials.
He then spoke about how awesome Texas is because “the freedom is palpable.” I guess that may seem true as long as you’re not a woman, black, Hispanic, or poor…for middle-aged white men with money, yeah, Texas is pretty amazing. They can — quite literally — get away with murder. What a deal.
He explained that he’s called a radical because he demands answers from people and “the mother f***ers work for we the people.”
But will he run? WCS program director Jerry Tarrants asked again and here is Ted Nugent’s response.
I have threatened to run for public office, because I have been prodded to do so, and pushed hard in Texas and other states, and here in Michigan, so it’s not off the table. I’m 65 this year, but I’m still blessed with incredible energy. I’m going to get my knees replaced so I’ll be more ambulatory coming up soon. I don’t know. At this point, it would be up to Mrs. Nugent, my family. I would consult with my manager Doug Baker. But I’m being pushed pretty hard to run for public office.
And I believe my sense of logic, my sense of common sense, my connection to people who are in the asset column of America. I believe that I would preform an enormous upgrade in returning to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and most important of all accountability.
He then went into a rant about President Obama and how much better a job Ted himself would do, and how he’ll make sure that liars are held accountable but “I hope it gets fixed without me running.”
When pressed for a confirmation — will he or will he not run — Ted Nugent replied.
Sure, why not?
What else can I say after that? Just one thing: Do It. Please Do It.
