Published Jul 16, 2009Right-wing redneck rocker Ted Nugent has always been known as much for his frank opinions as for his wild guitar licks. And now it seems Nugent has aimed those opinions square at U.S. President Barack Obama just months after he lobbied to be Obama's drug czar.
In a recent interview with Spinner, the "Cat Scratch Fever" shredder laid into Obama's administration for their "celebration of mediocrity and slovenliness and the cult of denial."
Nugent goes on to say, "I believe that we the people will eventually see the criminality of the Obama administration and eventually stop them one way or another, so I have eternal faith in my fellow man. I can't believe this experiment in self-government is over. I can't believe the documents our founding fathers clearly articulated and wrote are going to be abandoned for tyranny and slavery, and that's really what Obama represents. He represents that 'you people are so stupid and inept, I'll have to cover you.' I just don't believe that's true."
The Nuge also sees problems within the American populace, saying, "There is gluttony and denial in our economy. Basically, it can be most simply understood by the U.S. government and its citizens being credit card pigs. You can't buy another leather jacket when you've already got six. You claim you can't make ends meet and you owe five grand, much less 250 grand, on your credit card, you chimp!?
"Of course, I'm the bastard for saying it. People are pigs from the blubber that they have intentionally infested ourselves with and then they have the audacity to squawk for health care but not care about our health? How does that work?! If the producers of Planet of the Apes were offered the current American script that was playing out before us, they would turn it down because it's too stupid. It wouldn't qualify for a Planet of the Apes script!"
Ted Nugent recently released Motor City Mayhem, a DVD documenting his 6000th performance.
