Default Ted Nugent Headed To State Of The Union As Guest Of Texas Congressman Steve Stockman

A Texas GOP congressman who has floated the possibility of impeaching President Barack Obama announced Monday that controversial rocker Ted Nugent would be his guest at Tuesday's State of the Union address.

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), who claimed earlier this year that he'd be willing to file articles of impeachment over Obama's gun control push, addressed the development in a statement, stressing that Nugent would be available for media interviews after Obama's speech.

"I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama," the congressman said. "After the address I'm sure Ted will have plenty to say."

Nugent has been one of Obama's most inflammatory critics, taking an increasingly combative tone in the wake of the president's new push to reduce gun violence. He drew nationwide backlash for comments made last year in which he called for attendees at a National Rifle Association rally to "ride into that battlefield and chop [Democrats'] heads off in November." He also said he would be "dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama is re-elected. The Secret Service later visited the entertainer and said they had resolved the issue, but an unbowed Nugent didn't tone down his rhetoric.

Speaking earlier this year about Obama's proposed measures to address gun violence, Nugent suggested that he and his buddies were prepared for an armed rebellion against an "evil, dangerous" Obama, whom he accused of preparing a broad plan to confiscate guns.

Stockman could end up having a lot on his plate on Tuesday evening, apart from any potential excitement provided by his guest. His office has also announced that the congressman will fact-check the president's address in real time over Twitter.

UPDATE: 4:10 p.m. -- Asked by the New York Times if he'd be armed at the State of the Union, Nugent said he planned to "demilitarize" before entering the Capitol.

I saw this yesterday, and think I may actually need to watch this, just to see how it goes. And if Ted can keep quiet throughout the whole thing. I would love to see his reactions, and his comments though. All in all should be interesting.

I never saw Teddy's face the whole time, but the streaming video kept going out. Dear Leader kept the gun control for the last part, and was whooping it up with "they deserve a vote", meaning all the gun bills need to go to the floor for votes. Hard push on universal registration, i.e. "background checks", sideswipe at AWB, not by that name, but "military weapons of war" and standard capacity magazines, but he didn't spend much time on them other than to cry that police chiefs have come to HIM begging him to take them off the streets because they are outgunned. He wants them, but pretty much knows he won't get them, I think.
