Executive retaliation, pathetic at that.
Army leaders SUCK as does Obozo.
Shades of Limbaugh..
Hmmm. Isn’t the Fort Knox Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation supposed to take steps to SUPPORT the morale of the troops?
I figure the result will be that Deadly Tedly goes out and throws some lead downrange, and then kills a tasty animal with his bow.
I love Nuge, especially when he shoots his mouth. Nothing wrong with what he said, we may all end up in the slammer or six feet down if Obammy gets another four.
Ted will move on and it will not bother or affect him.
Now then, everybody else ought to grow the hell up, too.
Perhaps they should book Screwy Louie Farakahn instead...
The Backstrap Assassin will just go slay something.
See what the truth gets you.
I just gained more respect for Ted and telling it like it is.
Afterall, wr-ight, jak-sin and notso-sharp-tun gets away with free speech... for now.
This is ridiculous.

I’m guessing there are other venues he can play where the soldiers can go see him.
Fort Knox=No gold, no gonads!
He's off base on that point alone.
The skinny Kenyan communist muslim faggot in the WH that is responsible for the continued depression and is an albatross around the neck of the communist democrat party of the USA is less of a threat than a mormon bishop who pretends to carry the banner of conservatism.
The KOLOBIAN must be kept out of the WH.
Nugent should hold a concert off-site and see who gets the bigger gate.
He will be replaced by a Wiccan prayer and a gay sex orgy.
What a bunch of pussies.
He is wrong on this, but I am not writing off the whole man because of it.
Now if we could come up with some silly looking "special clothing" or uniform that Kolobians wear, we'd be all set.
You know, maybe something subtle, like underwear... but impregnated with special sauce that gives them magic powers or something...
Nah, nobody would believe that. :)
Uncle Ted supporting the liberal media backed Romney. HMMMMM Somebody is disingenuous or someboy is eskeered and/or bought. At any rate..this is wrong on too many levels.
Funny you say that....I’ve been wondering about the melantonin (sp) of those Secret Service guys who got into trouble...
But let a non-Eric Holder person say he probably won't survive a second Ubama term and the Feds pee all over themselves.
The price one pays for honesty. He probably needed the gig, too. All the more power to him if he doesn’t cave to any powers that be - that means he’s truly honest, everything he says is what he truly believes.
I hear that :) Don’t even ask about the Equal Opportunity Office... makes one wonder ... Hmmmm
Maybe they’ll replace Ted with the Dixie Chicks or some comedy from Bill Maher.
I agree, and if this were almost anyone other than the Department of Defense, I would have problems with canceling Nugent.
But let's change the situation a bit. What if the Dixie Chicks had been booked to perform at an Army post before they made disparaging comments about a Republican President? Would we not say that MWR needs to take a long hard look at the appropriateness of having a major performance by singers who have made recent disparaging comments about the Commander in Chief? Most of us would say the difference is Nugent is right and the Dixie Chicks were wrong, but unlike us, the Department of Defense can't get involved in politics.
My guess is Ted Nugent knew there would be consequences to his comments and made them with the full intention of using his national reputation to get widespread attention for his criticism of President Obama.
The old saying is often true in the entertainment world: “There's no such thing as bad publicity.” I'm guessing Nugent is quite happy to see that MWR’s cancellation of his appearance had resulted in his comments about Obama getting even more attention.
I’m sure it put a dent in his revenue for the quarter, but Ted Nugent has been around for a long, long time, and he doesn’t drink or do drugs, so I”m guessing he’s... comfortable.
As much as I agree with what Ted said, it would be inappropriate to allow him to potentially act similarly on a US military base. Go ARMOR!
I wish he’d find some conservative farmer in the area who would let him use a few acres to put on a free concert in direct competition with the Ft. Knox show. hee hee
Armor is at Benning now.
What!? Well I’ll be...
It was the home, for nearly seventy years (1940-2010), of the U.S. Army Armor Center, the U.S. Army Armor School (now at Fort Benning),
Nugent set off a controversy at last weekend's National Rifle Association convention when he criticized high-ranking members of Obama's administration and offered support for possible Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
maybe you’ve hit it on the “head” so to speak about the sucking...
There's plenty of ultra-liberal suck-up celebrities to fill the void. Ted Nugent is now an American icon (representing the 75% of us that aren't Obamabots and who absolutely positively LOVE America, the US Constitution and The Rule of Law). Like Rush Limbaugh, he's a hero speaking words that cause liberals heads to explode.
I am assuming that a good chunk of the active military shares Ted`s opinion of Barry
these words will be saved....and they will be used against you every time you come around bitchin and moaning about bamey....
shame on you.....quite pathetic....
0bama must’ve made a phone call.
You are a freak.
Ted should have a free concert at the same time on the same day at a venue that is as close to the front gate of Fort Knox as he can get. Then offer free transport from the front gate to the venue and back after the concert.
Megadeth or Korn would be a good replacement. Hehehe.. Oh wait, they’ve bashed 0bama too!
