“Terrible” Ted Nugent’s outspoken and provacative remarks about politics have afforded him a face to face meeting with members of the Secret Service in the past. You may remember 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.”
Well now, Republican Representative Steve Stockman of Texas said Monday on his website that Nugent will be his guest for tonight’s State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress. Stockman has talked of impeaching Obama over his gun control proposals and of course “The Motor City Madman” is a staunch defender of our 2nd amendment rights.
“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 statement. “After the Address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”
So, if you are planning on playing a version of the State of the Union Drinking Game tonight, take one “shot” every time the camera lands on Mr. Nugent.
Nugent, meanwhile plans on touring beginning this April with Styx and REO Speedwagon on a tour that stretches through the end of May.
