He seems open...
Billboard reports that during an interview with WCSX in Detroit, Ted Nugent mentioned that he is considering running for President of the United States.
When asked by WCSX program director Jerry Tarrants about his political aspirations, he said: "I have threatened to run for public office, because I have been prodded to do so, and pushed hard in Texas and other states, and here in Michigan. And I believe my sense of logic, my sense of common sense, my connection to people who are in the asset column of America. I believe that I would perform an enormous upgrade in returning to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and most important of all accountability."
When Nugent was asked if he'll actually run, he said "Sure, why not?"
Nugent is a hardcore supporter of the Republican Party and has criticized the US government for "out of control... bloated and infested with fraud and deceit and corruption and abuse of power." He called President Barack Obama a "monster in the White House" who "wouldn't qualify to drive my tour bus."
He previously said in an interview that he would be "dead or in jail" if the president was reelected in 2012.
