Ted Nugent 'Loves' Sarah Palin, But Wouldn't Vote for Her for President (VIDEO)

Ted Nugent 'Loves' Sarah Palin, But Wouldn't Vote for Her for President (VIDEO)

Appearing on 'Anderson Cooper 360' (weekdays, 10 PM ET on CNN) rocker, hunter and outspoken Tea Party supporter Ted Nugent heaped praise upon Sarah Palin, but also said she hasn't yet convinced him she has what it takes to be president.

"(Palin's) coming from the street, she's coming from the we-the-people rank-and-file, she makes sense when she talks, she says all the right things, she's sincere, she's knowledgeable , she's articulate, she's damn good-looking, plus she kills moose, how can you go wrong?" Nugent gushed.

However, when Cooper pressed Nugent on whether Palin would make a good president, Nugent balked.

"It's too early to tell. Right know, if we had a vote, I couldn't vote for Sarah Palin. And I love her. I love her madly, and I respect her."

When somebody as naturally sympathetic to Palin as The Nuge doesn't believe he can vote for her, maybe it's time we stop talking about the former half-governor of Alaska as a viable presidential candidate.

Nugent isn't yet convinced, that's fair enough. Lots of people aren't convinced but they will be when the campaigns begin.

I don’t support Palin currently for President (in the primaries) but Ted Nugent’s endorsement or lack thereof plays no part in my decision, nor should it.

Why would he say that though? He could have dodged the question or said, 'she hasn't said she's running so there's nothing to support right now'. Perhaps he's like a lot of people who agree with Palin on the issues, like her but don't think she's ready to be president.

Mrs. Palin not running (I am pretty sure she won’t) does not mean rinomney gets the nod.

WE Conservatives can come together — we just need a good standard-bearer. There isn’t one in sight for the moment, but I am hopeful one shall emerge.

The headline is total BS.

He didn’t say he wouldn't vote for her. He said if he had to vote today he couldn’t - because of the unknowns. And those unknowns would be made known to all of us as we go through the selection process - the debates, ads, her platform, etc.

No, he is giving his opinion of what he thinks might be the truth. None of us will know the truth unless Sarah becomes President and either succeeds or fails, or somewhere in between.

Ok your right a man named Ted says so then it must be so.

How stupid and gullible could I be?

I mean CNN would have had him on if he was endorsing her right?

You know for once I was granting myself the power to make up my own mind but screw that I don’t have that right especially coming from Ted.

There is a lot of time until 2012. He says she can still get his vote.

And I'm guessing he's talking about the primary, in which case I agree that Sarah hasn't quite won my vote yet either.

If it's Sarah vs 0 I can't imagine Ted not voting for her. If it were Curly Howard vs 0 I'd betch he'd vote for Curly and Curly's been dead for like 50 years.

I'd soitently vote for Curly.

You would be hard pressed to find a bigger Palin fan than me around here. And I am not upset in the least over these comments, for these reasons:

Palin has not had an opportunity to run a national campaign on HER OWN record in office. Other than parts of her Alaska energy policies (and even those are only known by nerdy types like me), her actual governing record remains a mystery. Romney & Huck have already run a national campaign on their own records, btw. Think about that. Even here on FR, there is disagreement on her own (vs McCain’s) position on illegal immigration!

How has she chosen advisors, cabinet members, judges in the past? I don’t know her criteria, do you?

There are lots of things just like this that will be unknown until and unless she mounts a national campaign. Of course, if we had a real media, some of this would be out there instead of the BS we do know about her. But it is what it is, and it will be up to her to state and then defend, if necessary, her record of governing.

Once that happens, everyone can make up their mind.

I think that's splitting hairs. If he's such an enthusiastic supporter why couldn't he say "hell yeah I'd vote for her"? How many of her biggest supporters on FR would say "I couldn't vote for her right now". My guess is not many.

The Left eventually all embraced Obama, except the Hillary crowd, which was appeased with the Secretary of State nomination.

An Affirmative Action, half black, half white, illegal immigrant Marxist Muslim from a Commie Mom and one of two black 60’s radical black men who went to Occidental, Columbia and Harvard Law...Community Organizer, Lefty Lawyer, Union panderer and street politician.

We need a Mike Pence or Jim DeMint to run, Sarah is too much of a lightning rod.

Unfortunately I can see more scenarios in which Romney is the nominee than any other candidate.

I don’t believe in going into panic mode a whole year before the campaign even begins. If Sarah becomes the nominee, it’ll be because she earned it. I doubt she is losing sleep over these comments.

All this practice bleeding about Palin or anyone else is a waste of time. We don't have any announced candidates yet. Making statements like “I won't vote for _______!” is just plain silly. Unless it's the devil himself I am going to vote for the anti-Obama candidate. I do pray it's a real conservative though.

The single worst act Sarah Palin could have done to make anyone question her suitability for President was the act of resigning as Alaska'a governor.She should have found a way to fight and turn the bogus ethics charges upon the Dems and Rinos.Her resignation said "I can't take the heat,so I'm getting out of the kitchen" to many,many voters.People will always wonder if she might decide to walk away from the Presidency at some critical moment.

Sarah Palin can be a wonderful spokesperson,pundit,cheerleader, and promoter for the conservative cause but she has been rendered just as likely to be elected as Dan Quayle.It's not fair,it's not right ,it just is.

I agree with all of the positive things that Uncle Ted said about Sarah.

I hope that our eventual GOP nominee is a staunch conservative who doesn’t have the built-in negatives that Sarah has.

That said, I will vote for Sarah in the primary if her opponents are either too liberal (e.g. Huck or Mittens) or can’t win the nomination.

I will vote for the GOP nominee in the general election.

I am in Ted Nugent camp but only in the primaries. Against the Kenyan/Indonesian Muslim I will vote for any republican who gets nominated and that includes Palin.

I heard a person born in Iraq yesterday on Radio talk show and he has a $100,000 reward for any one who can prove that Obama is a Christian. According to him, there is no evidence Obama actually formally converted to Christianity. Obama was registered Muslim in school in Indonesia. He also said once a Muslim, always a Muslim. Converting out of Islam to any other religion is immediately eligible for a death fatwa.

Adding to what you said, I have confidence in Palin. Something that is lacking in too many of her supporters. We’ll be far more successful in convincing others by our exuding confidence rather than the thin-skinned counter “attacks” of other supporters.
