    When did I make any such comment?

    President Obama is thin skinned??? Might I suggest any minority attempting to climb to the Commander in Chief's Position was to be thin skinned he wouldn't make it past mayor. I think you are inventing this stuff as you go along.
    This is the biggest cry baby prez we've ever had. Deal with it.

    I have no first hand knowledge, but given who we are talking about and his reputation, it would not surprise me that he has spoken similarly about President Obama many times before, with the ONLY difference being that this incident was caught by the media.
    Which begs the question: If the Army didn't want to take sides, politically, why did they invite him, to begin with?

    Why invite him, to begin with? Obviously, it has more to do with hurting Barry's little feewings, than not wanting to seen as taking sides, politically.

    his politics are not the issue its the manner he chose to express them.

    That's not what Ft. Knox is claiming.

    A spokesman for Fort Knox told TheBlaze.com that having Nugent perform "would be a conflict of interest since the military has the obligation to be apolitical."
    If they were really interested in being apolitical, they should have never invited him.

    I attended an REO Speedwagon concert roughly 8-10 years ago where lead singer Kevin Cronin whined about President Bush, so I guess they should be canned as well.

    By your standards, most certainly. I mean, don't you agree that anyone who criticizes any president, shouldn't be allowed to perform at a military installation? That's been the argument from the git-go.

    Must be different, when it's not Obama.

    You complained the Chicks never played for the troops after 2003, using that 'standard' dozens of performers are as 'bad'.

    The Military Base belongs to the Commanding General through the Base Commander, any civilian attempting to claim any part as his or deciding to run the PX his way will soon lean just who owns a military base.

    But you knew that, why such drivel?

    I never complained. I only pointed out why the Chicks haven't played anymore shows for our service members.

    The post commander is the commanding general. What the hell are you even talking about?

    Fort Knox belongs to the American People; unless the, "of the people, by the people and for the people", part has been removed and no one told me.


    Was it?

    President Obama is the Commander-in-Chief of our military.

    Mr. Nugent called for Obama to be killed.

    Mr. Nugent, has no business performing in front of our soldiers.
