I am troubled by Ted Nugent’s foul-mouthed criticisms of President Obama. It is one thing to disagree, but quite another to disrespect. There are many legitimate reasons for opposing Obama’s positions on a number of issues. But Nugent’s nasty name-calling—all too common these days—actually does more harm than good. Instead of arguing for a moral position, the right is simply throwing mud. This illustrates perfectly the ideological breakdown of the conservative/republican side of the political spectrum. Would somebody please shut Nugent and his ilk up, so we can get on with a real conversation?
