Rocker Ted Nugent issued an apology of sorts Friday for referring to President Obama as a “subhuman mongrel” in a published interview with Guns.com. The apology, however, wasn’t a full mea culpa.

Mr. Nugent said he will try “to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I’m learning form in the world of politics.”

Who are they?

Why apologize?

"an individual resulting from the interbreeding of diverse breeds or strains; especially : one of unknown ancestry "

Mongrel sounds appropriate.

it’s unkind to speak the truth Ted. Take time and polish the turd before handing it over to the hypersensitive American people.....and always remember, it’s racist to beat up on the black guy

LOL! Nugent’s got ‘em totally PUNK’D.

Read that quote WITH the SARCASM tags firmly in place, and you’ll immediately see what he really meant.

Physically, Obama is no mongrel. He’s man enough to send a tingle up the leg of any romantically diverse reporter in the mainstream media. Intellectually, every mongrel I’ve seen learned from its mistakes, so he’s no mongrel.

obama quote;

“When asked about his background, which includes a black father and white mother, Obama said of African-Americans: “We are sort of a mongrel people.”

“His apology comes on the heels of pressure from many in the Republican camp who found his characterization of the president offensive. Sen. Rand Paul just put out a Twitter statement, calling for the Second Amendment activist to apologize, while Sen. Ted Cruz suggested Mr. Nugent’s comments went over the line. Gov. Rick Perry, meanwhile, had decried Mr. Nugent’s use of the word “mongrel” to describe a president.”


If I recall correctly Bush was called worse by the Bush haters, Sarah Palin was even called the “C” word by folks on the left, so I find it hard to get all upset as Rand Paul and others apparently are.

Maybe he just mispoke.

Mulatto - a term used to refer to a person who is born from one white parent and one black parent, or more broadly, a person of any proportion of European and African ancestry...

If the appelation fits, you can keep it.

Full Definition of MONGREL:

1: an individual resulting from the interbreeding of diverse breeds or strains; especially: one of unknown ancestry

2: a cross between types of persons or things

Well, it does appear that he has mastered the art of the "non-apology apology" as practriced by the great democrat party orators of our time.

Too bad his apology didn't go something like this:

"I am truly sorry our president is a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster"

Nugent behaving like an idiot only hurts those he supports. A Democratic plant would be an equivalent.

The goal is to win. Nugent does not help.

Perfect definition of an American.

Mongrel is not a perjorative.

Mongrels are always the smartest.

I am finding it difficult to get upset as well.

Considering the verbage used by the left and the fact that they campaign with every gypsy, tramp and thief they can find...I consider this whole thing a monumental tempest in a teapot.
