Texas Dems Slam Abbot for Campaigning with Pedophile

Democrats and women’s groups assailed GOP gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott’s choice of Ted Nugent to appear with him at Tuesday events, citing the rocker’s abusive name-calling and early penchant for relationships with under-aged girls.Abbott’s campaign said the attorney general might not agree with some of Nugent’s language, but praised the so-called Motor City Madman as an avid defender of the U.S. Constitution. The campaign did not comment regarding Nugent’s inappropriate affairs from 30 years ago.As attorney general, Abbott has touted his office’s Internet Crimes Against Children division that works with law enforcement to identify predators who go on-line seeking young women. Calling it his cyber-crimes unit, Abbott frequently mentions its efforts to arrest those who would solicit minors.

2. Abbott is a wheelchair bound man who sued the owners of the tree that fell on him. as he should have

But then he became a big supporter of tort "reform" which makes it harder for anyone else to do the same. Typical pull the ladder up behind you GOP behavior. So chickenhawk campaigns for chickenshit.

4. No kidding. I want to vomit when I hear anyone say that Nugent defends the Constitution. Let me help

Abbott understand:

de·fend verb \di-ˈfend\
: to fight in order to keep (someone or something) safe : to not allow a person or thing to hurt, damage, or destroy (someone or something)

Hey Abbott do you spell defend with on "F" or 4?

Friggin' p.o.s.

3. Not out of conscience, but because it would have been inconvenient for Nugent

He and I took our draft physicals the same year. Fuck Ted Nugent!

5. I read a bit on SNOPES about the whoe thing. It said he originally had a student deferrment then

was found 1F, once the war was over he eligibility was changed to 4F, so it appears the story he told High Times and the other magazine was correct.

My father and grandfather were in Vietnam. They were regular Army and Air Force so they made their own choice about being there. (Grandfather had already been in WWII and Korea), Dad was an AF pilot so he didn't have to face what most others did. Bless you. I know it's not easy.

8. No he didn't, wasn't a big hater and couldn't play guitar. My grandmother was of age, and despite

his occupation didn't have a fascination with guns. What he did was 28 yrs in the Army. WWII, Korea, and 3 tours in Viet Nam. 3 jumps into combat, and I don't know what else. His third tour in Nam he was in a jeep that hit a land mine. He retired as a Command Sargent Major shortly after that. He wasn't 100% after the land mine. But I don't think I ever saw him wear a flag banana and he wasn't on the board of the NRA so no, by current Republican standards he didn't defend anything.

10. Command Sergeant Major is nothing to sneeze at

That rank commands respect throughout the services, all branches. That is the very top enlisted rank, attained only by those who have been there and done that and been very smart and a very good leader.

It is a small fraternity of the very best.

Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to “suck on [his] machine gun,” and called Sen. Dianne Feinstein a “worthless whore”  http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=757_1187963465 Nugent On Then-First Lady Clinton: “You Probably Can’t Use The Term ‘Toxic Cunt’ In Your Magazine, But That’s What She Is.” From a July 7, 1994 interview with Denver, Colorado publication Westword: About Hillary Clinton: “You probably can’t use the term `toxic cunt’ in your magazine, but that’s what she is. Her very existence insults the spirit of individualism in this country. This bitch is nothing but a two-bit whore for Fidel Castro.” [Westword, 7/27/94]Nugent: Hillary Clinton Has “Scrotums.” During a January 2014 appearance at a gun industry trade show, Nugent said, “Our politicians check their scrotum in at the door. Even Hillary, but obviously she has spare scrotums.” [Guns.com, 1/17/14, via Media Matters

16. What about that "patriot's" method for avoiding being called to serve

during the war that he no doubt supported as a redblooded RWer.
