Ted Nugent to attend SOTU

Quote:
WASHINGTON — A Republican congressman says he's invited rocker Ted Nugent, who has referred to President Barack Obama's administration as "evil, America-hating," to the State of the Union address.

Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas said Monday on his website that Nugent will be his guest for the president's speech Tuesday night. Stockman has talked of impeaching Obama over his gun-control proposals.

In a speech to the National Rifle Association during the 2012 campaign, Nugent said that if Obama were re-elected, the longtime gun-control opponent would either be "dead or in jail."

Nugent's remarks led to meetings with representatives of the Secret Service.

Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez said another guest would be Gabino Sanchez of South Carolina. Gutierrez described Sanchez as a husband, father and an illegal immigrant fighting deportation.

This only does favors for the opposing view probably.

I agree. Illegals shouldn't be invited to the SOTU. They should be deported. Why a criminal who doesn't respect our laws is being invited to such an event instead of being thrown out the country shows this nation has lost its mind.

Wow they are going to let an illegal alien into the house chambers to watch the STOU. Well I guess that is not to crazy for this administration. They probably won't even ask for identification from him.

Will Mr. Craps His Pants To Avoid The Draft even be allowed in after making threats against the President? Can't imagine the Secret Service is too happy about that.

Hopefully he only gets in after a full cavity search. Although I do not envy the person who has to check his cavities, god only knows how much hardened feces is up there.

The article says the source is Steve Stockman's web site. I searched his site and can't find anywhere that this is stated.

I trying to figure what threat he made. Unless there is something more to "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,"

I don't see a threat to the president there. I'm pretty sure the SS was told by someone outside of the SS to go look into Ted to see if you can turn up some dirt. Obviously they did not find anything.

"We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November, Nugent said of the Obama administration.

I wish he would take Stockman with him. I've actually met with Congressman Stockman on the issue of DOMA and other LGBT rights a few times. I came away disgusted each and every time.

He is truly a paranoid, hateful, ignorant human. Amazing a person who represents the good citizens of Jasper would have issues with President Obama.

The fact that he would invite Ted Nugent is not surprising.....crazy tends to attract crazier.

Ted is a weird one.

While not hateful in the same sense of a Westboro, he seems to hate on those who get in the way of his owning guns. He doesn't see eye to eye with his fellow sworn in cops/sheriffs on guns, as this video shows, and is talking about an argument that doesn't address what the interviewer is asking him. Why military grade semi-automatics? Why not address mass shootings? etc. He's on a mission but doesn't realize when the topic is something else. I don't think those of us who believe in the right to bear arms like me is getting any help from this unapologetic pedophile.

I am sure there are countless fathers of teenage daughters who would be glad to have a shootout with Ted. I don't think Gene Simmons would be far behind.

NBC News’ Luke Russert … asked Nugent if he thought that ("SFB") was “an appropriate thing to say about a sitting member of Congress (RI rep Langevin) who’s in a wheelchair?” Nugent, no stranger to feces, responded that it would take “genuine fecal material instead of brain matter” to suggest that he doesn’t “feel sorry for the victims of violent crime.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta also caught up with Nugent, who told Acosta that he wasn’t packing, but was apparently carrying *loaded thesaurus. He told Acosta that his message was “Freedom. Freedom and independence. Rugged individualism, and leave us alone.”

I think he wouldn't, given his past draft dodging history.

I hope you're not referring to me. I stand by what I said about the tea party's Number Two man.
