More on the Nuge Rhetoric

The Romney Campaign has spoken against over-the-top rhetoric, from either side. This is pretty much what I expected:

Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.

The left is pushing for Romney to condemn Nugent by name. This is classic divide and conquer. They’d love to see Romney out there condemning Nuge, because Nuge’s fan base is exactly the type of folks that Romney is going to have a hard time reaching, and getting out to the polls in November. They’d love to drive a wedge between Nugent country and Romney country, which could only help their candidate.

  1. Ted’s career peaked 30+ years ago with a brief revival in the early 90s. He does not have that much of a base.

    1. He doesnt, but he is a vibrant, if not rambunctious, example of a freedom loving American. When he speaks people listen and even if it is a bit rough around the edges…thats not always a bad thing and he knows it.

      1. The First Amendment restrains government, it doesn’t restrain social pressure by private individuals, or groups of private individuals.

      2. The nuge is like Gary Busey with his antics. He speaks before he thinks and has to deal with fallout later. He’s sticking himself out there as the face and voice of the NRA, he needs some more well planned statements.

        Hillsdale has a Constitution 101 course, free online. You should take it, your understanding of the first amendment is lacking.

  2. This is just a repeat of the same nonsense post-Giffords shooting where our political opponents jump up and down hypocritically about rhetoric that they use themselves.

    Don’t feed it.

  3. Romney needs to grow a spine and attack the liberals for being idiots, instead of turning around and ask others to hush.

    Romney, meet spine.
