Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Romney Must “Denounce” Ted Nugent’s Violent Remarks About Obama Reelection
3:15 pm, April 17th | by Laura Donovan
Singer Ted Nugent may have said this weekend that he’d “either be dead or in jail by this time next year” if President Barack Obama remains president, but Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is unsettled that Mitt Romney, whom the musician endorsed last month, hasn’t condemned the rocker’s violent remarks.
Addressing the controversy, Wasserman Schultz wrote on Twitter, “Romney surrogate Ted Nugent’s comments about Pres. Obama are vile & beyond the pale—and the Romney campaign should denounce them immediately.”
We suspect Romney was too busy celebrating his wife’s birthday to get back to the Florida Congresswoman or smite away, and while Nugent’s comments were horrifying and as far from amusing as jokes come, Romney isn’t at fault for the ramblings of a washed out crooner.
