Nugent drew the attention of the Secret Service when he recently said, “If Barack Obama becomes the next President in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” Presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, has enthusiastically accepted Ted Nugent’s endorsement – and neither he nor leaders in the Republican Party have offered a full repudiation of the Nugent’s threats against the President.
But Romney and the Republican Party HAVE fully repudiated Democratic Strategist Hilary Rosen’s truthful comments about Ann Romney. How do you like that double standard? Make a comment about how the Romney-rich don’t understand the economic troubles of the poor and the Republican Party reacts like the world is on fire. Make a threat against the President of the United States though – and it’s no big deal.
