Ted Nugent, some dude, and Hank Williams Jr.
For a good portion of the concert it seemed like Williams had moved beyond issues of politics and was putting the focus on the Bocephus party. But those made their way back into the show in a much more straightforward way later in the set.True enough (the part about it not deserving a response).
Following the song "We Don't Apologize For America" a chant of "USA, USA" broke out amongst the crowd. Williams smiled, telling the crowd that he was their mouth piece and adding:
"We've got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!"
The cheers that followed were loud and enthusiastic.
When reached for comment Saturday, Brad Anderson with the Obama campaign in Iowa said in an email, "That type of absurd nonsense doesn't really deserve a response."
