“I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America,” Nugent said.
Frankly, and ironically, too, Nugent gives a bad name for anyone who is anti-Obama administration with a comment such as this. This is why Paul put out a tweet to the public on Thursday, Feb. 20 demanding Nugent apologize for his unnecessary and childish words.
Ted Nugent’s derogatory description of President Obama is offensive and has no place in politics. He should apologize.

Not much time passed before Nugent took Paul’s advice—an apology—if you want to call it that.
“I do apologize–not necessarily to the President–but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said to a CNN political commentator.
Nugent said he wished he had used language such as “violator of his oath to the Constitution” instead of the words he actually used.
“I apologize for using the term,” Nugent said. “I will try to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I’m learning from in the world of politics.”
Now a day, the world of politics travels at one thousand miles per hour with the Internet and social media, and, of course, if Paul was tweeting about this subject, you already know the rest of the nation was. After hearing his “apology” on CNN and/or other media outlets, people quickly took to their twitter machines, commenting on the legitimacy of Nugent’s expression of regret.
Nugent was asked again if his apology was directly to the president himself, to which he replied, “Yes.”
There is either a lot of contradiction or change of thought going on in Nugent’s head. We’ll leave the sincerity of his statements, the latter in particular, for you to determine.
