Ted Nugent - Why I endorsed Mitt Romney
Phoenix radio station KFYI ^ | 5-4-2012 | Mike Broomhead

Posted on 05/05/2012 12:11:00 AM PDT by Tarantulas

Ted Nugent always stops by radio station KFYI here in Phoenix when he's in town, and we have the privilege of listening to this great American. Today he was on the Mike Broomhead show prior to his concert in Phoenix tonight. Among other topics, Mike asked him to explain why he endorsed Mitt Romney. Here's his answer (6 minutes 10 seconds):

Ted discusses his recent interview with CBS (6 minutes 14 seconds):

Ted talks about Barack Obama, illegal aliens, dead ranchers, OTMs, law enforcement, and slovenly booger people (8 minutes 48 seconds):

Ted talks with a fan about a 1977 concert, being clean and sober, conservation and Wise Use, the ATF whistleblowers for Operation Fast & Furious, and Fedzilla (7 minutes 8 seconds):

Second full segment, 6-7 p.m. (Ted left the studio at about the 16 minute 40 second mark):

KEYWORDS: banglist; endorsements; hunting; michigan; nugent; romney; texas; thenuge
Listening to the podcast files again after hearing the original broadcast on the way home, it strikes me that Ted Nugent is an American institution on the same level as Will Rogers. He is a national treasure, and I love listening to him talk about politics.

I will say, without a doubt, that Ted Nugent is the best guitar player America has ever produced. His politics is also right up there with the best.

Here is Uncle Ted’s Stranglehold (From “Motor City Mayhem”):

Enjoy!

There was a time when I sat beside Shemane Nugent at a Freeper rally and things rocked.

True Blackman and Kristinn kicked ass

Fire Fighter for Freedom gave himself a saline IV while it was 104 to keep rollin on

>"Ted Nugent - Why I endorsed Mitt Romney

Because he hunts with a bow and doesn't need a gun?

C'mon Ted. He's a Red! An albinobamma!

That doesn’t mean he can’t be overly optimistic about any particular politician.

If he’s not the best, he’s certainly right up there. I told him to his face once, during a book signing, that as a guitar slinger of several decades I had ripped off every hook he ever recorded. He liked that. :) Was one hell of a nice guy, by the way.....sent everyone off with a “God bless you” as they walked away with their signed books. NOT the rock wild man you see on stage; a down-to-earth, genuinely nice guy.

I’d love to jam some heavy electric blues with Ted some day; blow the roof off of some joint.

I really like Ted.

RINOmney, however, is still a vapid dork who will change directions faster than an atom in Brownian motion.

not by a longshot, and I hope he would agree. The best politician/guitarist, maybe.

now then, he's still performing? How old is he?

First I don't like Romney. Second you have made the case to hold our noses and vote for him. He is a human weather vane. Unlike the Communist in Chief. WE can control the weather vane. WE can kick up enough wind to make him swing in our direction. WE can do it if we put forth the effort.
There is nothing on this earth more important to Romney than being President. Remember Clinton? We got him to enact Welfare Reform. If we could swing Clinton we can surely swing Romney.

I remember back in the late 'sixties he and the Amboy Dukes played every Friday night at a dive bar at the intersections of Olive Street Road and Hog Hollow Road in St. Louis County, Missouri.

I was too young to get in then, but I remember the sign being there for years; "Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes."

I was 5 years to young to go see Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes play at Riverside High school in Windsor Ont. Remember when he used to guest host at WWWW 106.7 out of Detroit for his fiance who was a DJ so she could do the things necessary for thier wedding.

I'd agree that he's not "the best guitarist ever".

Different eras and different types of music but Jimmy Hendricks comes to mind, along with Chet Adkins. Have you heard Chet Adkins' classical guitar playing?

Nugent's politics are a different matter, while I agree with him mostly, his "endorsement of Romney" means as much to me as anybody elses, which is to say, none at all.

That's a great story. As I posted elsewhere, I heard he was "Father of The Year" once way back in a much different era. Back, id guess, before Detroit was infected with Islam.

Speaking of different eras, Neil Sedaka still has that voice and is about to celebrate his 50th wedding anniversary.

Speaking to that era and good singers,i had the pleasure of seeing Burton Cummings and the Guess Who 3 times at the St.Clair College outdoor amphiteater in Windsor,what a voice.

Ted Nugent is the best guitar player America has ever produced.

I'm pretty sure that even Ted (and every other professional guitarist) would argue with you about that.

Hendrix was a far more gifted electric guitarist. His equal has never been seen.

I like Ted, but I don’t trust Romney. You measure a man by his actions, and not by his words.

Might as well reelect Clinton. Probably still slightly better than Zero.

The Guess Who were amazing. Randy Bachman is a huge guitarist. But I think Burton Cummings was better before he was Burton Cummings.

Not selling him short, btw — I think he’s an excellent player. Just not the greatest.
