TED NUGENT To Attend US State Of The Union Address
According to Billboard.com,
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.
"I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent
joining me in the
House Chamber to hear from President Obama," Stockman said in a press
release. "After the Address I'm sure Ted will have plenty to say.”
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 by this time next
He also called the Obama administrations "criminals… We need to ride
into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November."
Nugent's remarks led to meetings with representatives of the Secret Service.
