TED NUGENT Endorses MITT ROMNEY But Says He Prefers RICK PERRY
Legendary rocker Ted Nugent has announced via Twitter that he is officially endorsing Mitt Romney in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. However, in an interview Friday with The Texas Tribune, Nugent said he would prefer to have endorsed Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
Perry entered the Republican presidential campaign with great fanfare in 2011, only to fizzle out after a series of debate gaffes, before finally dropping out in January.
"If the real Rick Perry had been at those debates, he would still be in the race," Nugent said. "It is my firm belief that Rick Perry would have [made] and would make the best president we could choose."
He continued, "Whatever occurred at those early debates that caused the real Rick Perry to take a back seat to whoever that was literally caused my wife to cry. We thought, 'Has he been advised by idiots?' To this day, we still don't know what happened."
Nugent also explained his endorsement of Romney by saying, "Basically, America is in a suicidal tailspin right now. Our government is out of control. The power abuse, the corruption, the insanity of spending money that will never exist... The conclusion based on all the evidence I can find is that Mitt Romney has the best shot at bringing the U.S. Constituion, common sense, and the American way back to the White House."
