Ted Nugent's Obama Remarks

Ted Nugent's remarks towards the President were unjustified. 

These kind of remarks are not befitting of the Republican Party nor of the kind of civil discourse that America needs to re-discover. Our opposition to the President should be vested in policy disagreements and not in language that equates the President as a mortal enemy of the American people. This form of sensationalist rhetoric serves only to ferment the partisanship that currently infects American society and drives us apart. Former President GW Bush's attitude towards Obama (not criticizing him with personal insults) provides a much more impressive path for how we should conduct ourselves as Republicans. The best traditions of the Republican Party are vested in notions of personal respect for our fellow citizens and for the office of the President. When we turn away from these values we only serve to weaken ourselves. Electing Mitt Romney in November is our objective, but we don't need to throw away our values in order to get there. Quite the opposite in fact.
