This explains a lot about whom the conservatives admire. And the person Willard Romeny sought for an endorsement:
"Mitt Romney actively sought, and won, Ted Nugent’s endorsement in early March.
According to a report in the Texas Tribune and Nugent himself, the two had a lengthy conversation about gun laws and the endorsement on March 2nd.
Nugent made Romney pledge not to put any new restrictions on guns. Romney obliged."
Ted Nugent quotes:
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year,”
"...as reported by the Raw Story, Nugent told his [NRA] audience that they should view President Obama and other Democrats as wild animals invading their homes. Like a coyote "in your living room pissing on your couch. It's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."
“Obama, he’s a piece of sh-t, and I told him to suck on my machine gun … Hey Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch … Any questions? Freeeeeeeeeeeedom!!!!!” — on stage in 2007
“And in my mind, I’m going why can’t I just shoot this [Hare Krishna] guy in the spine right now; shoot him in the spine, explain the facts of life to him. — WRIF-FM, Detroit, Ted Nugent as guest D.J., Sept. 28, 1990
