Ted Nugent, Who Threatened Obama at the NRA Convention Last Year, to Attend 'State of the Union' Address


Congressman Steve Stockman has given one of his gallery tickets for the State of the Union address to rocker Ted Nugent, a staunch gun rights activist whose remarks at the NRA convention last year — "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year" — prompted a Secret Service investigation.

Said Stockman: "I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama. After the address I'm sure Ted will have plenty to say."

Nugent tweeted on Monday afternoon: "well well well, there will be a freedom addicted all American uppity Motown guitarplayer facing the POTUS at the SOTU addresss tomoro-lovely"

  5. I'm hoping he does something stupid, like hollering in the gallery and has to be escorted out. It would definitely reflect on the Republican Party and their extremism.

  6. Ugh. He was on Piers Morgan last night and I literally could only listen to one sentence before he disgusted me and I had to change the channel. He is an embarrassment to this country!

  7. They won't allow him in, and if they do he'll be surrounded by six agents. You can't make threats against a president and get away with attending a State address. So insane.

  8. Ted who ?

    Move along, nothing to see here.

  9. Seriously, Nugent throws in the word "uppity"? Yeah, they barely try to hide it these days.

  12. Hard to say who is the bigger schmuck, Nugent, or Stockman for inviting him.

  13. Dear FBI:

    Please have a sniper with a gun trained on Nugent for the duration of Obama's appearance.
    It would not surprise me if Nugent were to bring one of his buddy guns to the SOTU to try to kill the president. He has already said that he would try to do just that.

  14. I think he's the perfect choice to represent republican interests.

    Posted by: DannyEastVillage | Feb 12, 2013 7:22:27 AM

  15. What's even worse is that we have a member of Congress who thinks Nugent is a "patriot." Disgusting.

  16. Real class act. Will this father of 7 kids from 5 different women (Family Values!) Vietnam War draft dodger (Patriotism!) sex offender whom Courtney Love has stated she had sexual relations with when she was 12 (more of those Family Values!) and epic bloviator of mind blowing ignorance and hypocrisy - will he sit in his seat and act like a human being or scream out "LIAR!" the first chance the cameras turn on his media crazed neediness? What a sad and pathetic excuse for humanity.

  17. Yes--he soiled himself and wore the same clothes for a month, not bathing, to appear crazy to get out of the draft. Now he's a patriot and gun rights advocate. Indeed.

    That said, I'm of two minds about his attending. First, I think it shows profound disrespect of the President, for Stockman to give him a ticket, and wish he hadn't. But if he's denied, it will give him a platform to show how "persecuted" he is for his "patriotism". Let him make an ass out of himself, and cover himself and the tea party with disgrace, just as he covered himself with excrement and filth to get out of the draft while real patriots served like real men.

  18. You guys are idiots. You are dissing a man just because he isn't afraid to speak his mind? This whole gun control crap needs to stop. Let us citizens keep our guns were losing all of our rights as americans, and all of you are going to sit on the sidelines and watch... how pathetic can you really get? Like uncle ted I will stand up for what I believe in. This so called president is just making it easier for the government to controll us like puppets.

  19. Please, no one respond to trolls. It's too easy.

    Posted by: Paul R | Feb 12, 2013 11:12:55 AM

  20. He should not be allowed to attend. What's up with the Secret Service. He is an embarrassment to the nation. One of those who should not be allowed to own guns. A patriot, how wash!

    Posted by: Doug | Feb 12, 2013 11:14:14 AM

  21. I find it funny the same trolls commenting above were silent when their rights were really being taken away under the previous administration. The moral of the story is: when a republican takes away their rights, it's for patriotism.

  22. " It really is amazing that there is no push back on this. If I were Obama, I would move the speech and shame the GOP."

    Unfortunately, he's damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. (Obama that is) If he bars Nugent, Nugent becomes a martyr. Yes, his base will love an outburst, but it will just make the tea party look even more idiotic to the remaining American MOR voters.

  23. Well the Louisiana Governor called it correctly, "the stupid party" continues to, and you will pardon the pun, shoot themselves in the foot. Ted Neugent is a buffoon, and the only reason he getsw any air time is he is "famous", otherwise people like him don't get air time. He's trading on his name but in the end it's the whacko crap and utter stupidity that will attach to him like the racist hate spewing is attached to Mel Gibson - and no one cares to hear from him anymore. Sometimes freedom of speech has it's benefits.
