Texas Congressman Invites Ted Nugent, Who Threatened The President’s Life, To The State Of The Union


Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) has announced that he would be bringing musician and conservative loudmouth Ted Nugent to President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.
“I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama,” Stockman said on his congressional website on Monday.
Traditionally, State of the Union attendees are given the opportunity to invite distinguished guests or prominent constituents to sit in during the President’s remarks. And while past honorees include war heroes and selfless public servants, Stockman has instead invited someone who has threatened the President and Democratic officials:
Nugent called President Obama a criminal and denounced his “vile, evil America-hating administration” which is “wiping its ass with the Constitution.” Taking it a step further, he said that “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
Following his remarks last April at a National Rifle Association annual convention, the Secret Service brought in Nugent for questioning.
UPDATE
Ted Nugent responded to the swift condemnation of his invitation to the State of the Union address via Twitter on Monday afternoon: Ted Nugent ✔ @TedNugent

"well well well, there will be a freedom addicted all American uppity Motown guitarplayer facing the POTUS at the SOTU addresss tomoro-lovely"

3. How do they have room where any tom, dick and shithead can have a guest?

I suggest they have a posse of Secret Service agents around him pointing their firearms at him.

16. Do you think the Secret Service DOESN'T take threats seriously?

This president has had more hatred directed at him than any president in history and the Secret Service has done a terrific job keeping him and his family safe. They have a pretty good sense of who is a real threat and who is a blowhard.

9. Neither the Congressman nor Nugent should be allowed to attend.

Nugent for being a chickenhawk who talked smack about harming the President and the Repug for disrespect.

15. as has been explained many times, that's not going to happen

The President is a guest of Congress when he delivers the SCOTUS. He can't have a member of Congress or a member's guest "barred". If the Secret Service thought that an attendee posed an actual threat they could prevent them from attending, but its apparent that the Secret Service doesn't regard either Stockman or Nugent as anything other than blowhards who don't represent any actual threat to the President.

12. good, be the first time Nugent has to shut-up and listen to an entire speech from the President.

Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) maybe has a use for Nugent? Stockmans personal history is a good fit with a person who threatens the president. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Stockman

14. Put him in prison. Make an example out of him.

Make it clear to all the right wing freaks out there that there are enough prisons to hold all of them, if they don't behave.
