Ted Nugent to Attend President Obama’s State of the Union Address
Rocker Ted Nugent will be in the House chamber tonight when President Obama delivers his State of the Union address. The Motor City Madman will be a guest of Rep. Steve Stockman, a Republican congressman from Texas who like Nugent, is no fan of Barack Obama's.
"After the Address I'm sure Ted will have plenty to say," Stockman said in a press release. The focus of both men will no doubt be the President's comments on gun control. Nugent is an NRA director and staunch defender of the second amendment. Stockman has talked of impeaching the President for his proposals on gun control.
Nugent's distate for President Obama have been well-documented, and since the November election he hasn't backed down. The Seattle Post Intelligencer reports that the rocker compared Obama to King George in January, adding “If you want another Concord Bridge, I’ve got some buddies."
It was just last April that Nugent said “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” Those comments came during an NRA Convention in St. Louis, Mo. He later met with the Secret Service regarding the outburst, but he hasn't refrained from being critical in the 10 months following.
