    Exclamation Anybody see this interview with Ted Nugent by CBS?

    Somehow, I stumbled across this interview that had Ted Nugent sitting down on May 4th with a CBS News reporter. In his typical "over the top" fashion, Ted explodes yet again. I think he's getting pretty fed-up with his portrayal in the media as a "gun nut" activist and just needs to vent his frustration occasionally. But he does nothing to help his cause.

    Here's the link. You be the judge.

    I also am sick of the notion that "moderates" elect anyone. Who is a moderate? Someone who has no convictions, or his convictions are so weak that they wave like grass in the wind. Though I disagree with nearly every aspect of liberalism, I have to respect a liberal because he does have convictions. A moderate walks outside every morning, licks his finger, sticks it in the air, and that determines his beliefs of the day.

    There are few celebrities stronger in their convictions than the Nuge. I think that he went off because he was in a sense being lectured about moderation by a liberal, and he doesn't believe a word of it.

    I think Nugent is a loose cannon. Does not help the cause to win over the anti's.

    There is no winning over with the anti's. It's the majority, the moderates, that we are trying to win over. And even if they choose to be pro gun one day, they may take a bad dump the next morning and decide to change position.

    If you didn't know, Ted Nugent's interests go far, far beyond just Second Amendment issues. True, he is portrayed as being only a "gun nut" by the media, but his concerns are widespread enough that he is a "conservative activist". He truly believes that radicals/communists/socialists/ect are destroying our country purposefully, and that taking our guns is only a small part of the overall picture.

    Nugent is a much more intelligent man than he is portrayed to be, even moreso than he lets on. The extreme personality that he has always portrayed belies his intelligence.

    I think the news people did some creative editing.
    There had to be something cut out.

    Undoubtedly they went to commercial after their point was made, when he started cursing, that showed his unstable character. After that, whatever he said didn't matter to the audience, so though he calmed down, the interview was over as far as they were concerned.

    That is the very reason why conservatives should not go on "mainstream media" newscasts. They have no intentions of showing any conservative in a favorable light, they are always looking for the "gotcha". And they "got" the Nuge.

    I had no problem at all with anything he said for a couple of reasons. One, it's CBS. They're liberal. Beyond liberal, in fact, they're activist liberal. Remember Dan Rather and the Bush forged document scandal? Rather and his uber leftist producer would've been crowned as heroes by CBS brass if they hadn't gotten caught pushing an obviously manufactured story. In fact, nothing would've happened to Rather at all if he had just feigned an apology to put the story to rest, but he refused. But who really believes that CBS fired him because they're unbiased and/or fair-minded?

    Two, it's CBS. They're liberal, and what little audience they have is liberal, especially if they're watching the Charlie Rose show. Ted knows who's watching him. He doesn't hurt "us" at all by giving leftists who are already haters of everything constitutional an earful. And also, what seemed to set him off more than anything was how he's always portrayed as this bloodthirsty killer, when the verifiable fact is he is as loving and charitable a humanitarian as anyone in this country. Anyone taken note of the charitable donation percentages on Obama's and Biden's tax returns? They're pathetic, as are most leftists', because they think that supporting giving other people's money away to non-producers is plenty charitable, thankyouverymuch. I, along with Ted, am fed up to my eyeballs with all the rich greedy bastards who somehow are successful plying class warfare against the most generous group in America; conservatives.

    Maybe I've spent too much time around bikers all my adult life, but it takes a helluva lot more than a couple of F-bombs to offend me. Directed at the right people, in fact, I encourage them. The only thing Ted Nugent could ever do to offend me is quit telling the truth, and I saw nothing but truth in that short clip.

    One might ask themselves if they think that Charlie Rose or the off-camera producer, Molly, ever criticized Bill Maher for all the vile names he's called Palin and Bachmann. Theirs and all other leftists' outrage over a couple of F-bombs by Ted "Big 10-Inch" Nugent is as phony as all get out. Let's not succumb to their demands for political correctness against someone who has stood up for us every single chance he gets, whaddaya say?

    The main stream liberal media is all agenda driven. This interview with Ted is no different. They got what they were after and Ted played right into their hands. If he was dealing with a kidney stone that could have also added to his demeanor. Ted had to know that CBS doesn't care about his stand on any issue. They were playing to their tiny liberal audience. Ted you have nothing to be ashamed of and nothing to apologize for.

    Nugent might not be the most eloquent spokesman for the conservative cause but he is certainly the most passionate. He is expressing the frustration we all feel.
