Nugent, who is more Libertarian than Republican, would be following the likes of Jesse Ventura and Arnold Schwarzennegger...
It would be a tough dicision to crown Ted’s wife or Fred Thompson’s wife as the hottest first fox in the White House.
Hey Ted, can I be the FIRST to rent out the Lincoln Bedroom?
At least Ted has a record to be proud off.

Teditorial: War is the answer
Ted Nugent: Against the evil we face, war is the answer
Seeing what valor looks like, knowing cause is just

Toby Keith and I stood at the bedside of Pfc. Todd Bolding of Central Texas.
We were far from home, having just landed via Blackhawk battle copter on the tarmac of Bondsteel U.S. Military Hospital in Germany.
Visiting with wounded heroes of the world’s greatest warriors from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, National Guard and Marine Corps, we were deeply humbled - not only by the courage of these amazing men and women, but also by their commitment to get their shattered bodies repaired as soon as possible to “grab my rifle and get back to the front lines to fight with my buddies.”
God bless America.
We spent two weeks with these heroes, hanging out, eating, shooting, talking and patrolling. We shared hunting and fishing stories and celebrated the American music that apparently bonded us.
Toby and I did our best to keep a stiff upper lip and a positive attitude as we emotionally dealt with such a sacred time with many warriors with life-threatening injuries. We were moved.
Most importantly, continually listening to people who claim to support the troops but condemn and even dismiss the war on terror, I was totally fortified in my confidence that the cause for which these men and women fight is without doubt just and proper.
You see, I’m just a guitar player. So instead of guessing or relying on uneducated emotion, I believe my opinion should be based on the best information I can find on any given subject - particularly when the subject is freedom and justice and those heroes willing to volunteer and possibly sacrifice their lives for such noble causes.
The last thing I want to do is improperly or irresponsibly misstate or misinform anyone in my statements to the media or in my writings.
So I put my heart and soul into digging as deep as I can, researching the facts to the best of my ability and finding those souls most dedicated to the truth.
Historical and current evidence scrutinized is surely a good basis for opinion, but nothing quite compares to information shared by actual hands-on combatants in the front lines of the war on terror.
I so respect these bright, incredibly sophisticated, gung-ho military professionals. They obviously put their hearts and souls into researching the post-9/11 world, so maybe, just maybe, their decision to volunteer stands to be more meaningful than the motives of some U.S.-bashing punk like Michael Moore and his ilk.
The intimate, inside dialogue these brave men and women have shared with me brings me to a single conclusion: The terrorists and those who support them in any way must be destroyed at all costs.
Peace and love and security are procured by killing those who would interfere with such quality of life, and that is exactly what the U.S. military heroes are doing.
Fighting the evil terrorists and tyrants who have held Muslims back to a life of slavery and misery, locked in the 17th century, clearly is the only hope we have to beat down the maniacal extremists who vow to destroy America and take innocent lives around the globe.
That is what our troops are doing where they are doing it, and most people are smart enough to see this.
With the horrific images of those planes flying into the twin towers and the Pentagon still fresh in our minds, we are not about to forget the depth of evil they represent.
Todd Bolding bled to death before my eyes.
I saluted many flag-draped coffins over there. I flew home with the flag draped coffin of Lt. Col. Eric McRae and communicated with his family to say thank you on behalf of all Americans.
I remember the Alamo. I remember D-Day. I remember Iwo Jima. I remember Pearl Harbor. I remember Auschwitz. I remember 9/11/01.
I remember Todd Bolding and all who gave everything so we can be free. I side with those who face the beast. They know best.
I’d love to see him elected, but I don’t think he’d have much of a chance.
“....He favors hunting many different species, including elephants, mountain lions and tigers, and only when pressed comes up with a few animals he believes should not be hunted, such as penguins....”
Well, drat. My fantasy of having the Nuge guide me on a penguin hunt are dashed!!
I’ll have to say that that bit about the penguins was one of the funniest things I’ve ever read. I laughed almost to the point of having a medical emergency. Took me quite a while to recover.
His policy of sex with underage girls should win him a certain segment of the vote.
Ted would need to overcome the 500,000 votes the communists in Detroit and Lansing manufacture every election.
Plus the state republican party leadership consists of dead clams, castrated poodles and dimbulbs. Ted running would give them all a major case of incurable constipated conniption.
Unfortunately, if Nugent runs as a Libertarian for MI Governor, with a decent Republican in the race, the likely Dem nominee, Lt Gov John Cherry, will win in a plurality.
Michigan has too many deer anyway.
Well, assuming he runs for office, I hope he's smart enough not to go this route. Detroit would probably explode into riots all over again.
I like him. He’s intelligent, informed, and well-spoken.
I don’t live in Michigan but I’d love to see him in politics. Right now, the WOT and gun control (for law abiding citizens) are huge issues for me. He wasn’t in my era of music mostly so I don’t know his music well.
When in doubt he whips it out...He got him a campaign manager...it's a free-for-all!
I thought that Ted was now a Texas resident.
One thing for sure... If he runs, it’ll be UGLEEEEEE!!!!! The leftists won’t have to look too far for nasty things to say about Ted.
As for his finally being a “one woman man,” I don’t doubt it for an instant. Besides being an incredible babe, Shemane Nugent is probably every bit as good with a knife, gutting a buck, as is Ted, and HE knows it...
He lives in Texas doesn’t he? He can run for governor here. Michigan apparently didn’t want him. We’ll take him and claim him as our own.
