Secret Service looking into Nugent's anti-Obama rant

The Canadian Press

Date: Wednesday Apr. 18, 2012 11:09 AM ET

WASHINGTON The U.S. Secret Service is investigating faded '70s rock star Ted Nugent for his recent insistence he'll be "dead or in jail" in a year's time if President Barack Obama is re-elected in November.

At a convention of the National Rifle Association over the weekend, the longtime gun advocate compared Obama and the Democrats to a coyote who should be shot.

"It isn't the enemy that ruined America," he said as he reaffirmed his endorsement of Republican front-runner Mitt Romney.

"It's good people who bent over and let the enemy in. If the coyote's in your living room pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."

He accused the Obama administration of being "evil" and "America-hating."

"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," he said angrily. "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November."

He then told his audience of proud gun-owners that if they failed to "clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don't even know what you're made out of."

The Secret Service says it's aware of the weekend remarks and is looking into them. It's illegal in the United States to threaten the commander-in-chief.

The Romney campaign, meantime, attempted to distance itself from Nugent on Tuesday, undoubtedly regretting the former Massachusetts governor's comments last month to a Missouri radio show: "It's been fun getting to know Ted Nugent."

"Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from," Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in an email to reporters. "Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil."

Romney sought, and secured, the endorsement last month of the rock guitarist from his native state of Michigan. It was a curious move by Romney given he'd already won the Michigan primary in February.

The Democratic National Committee called on Romney to strongly condemn the remarks by Nugent, best known for his late '70s hit "Cat Scratch Fever."

"Threatening violence -- or whatever it is that Nugent's threatening -- is clearly beyond the pale, but Nugent's not the one running for president," said DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

At the daily White House press briefing on Tuesday, spokesman Jay Carney wouldn't comment on Nugent's remarks.

"We can't be policing the statement of supporters across the board. The president is focused on the issues," he said.

Nugent, however, was unapologetic, telling conservative radio host Dana Loesch that his incendiary remarks were "100 per cent positive."

"I will stand by my speech," he said, adding he'd been unfairly targeted for his comments.

"I'm a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally. And there are some power-abusing, corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth."

He then upped the ante by heaping more scorn on Democrats, describing Wasserman Schultz as a "brain-dead, soulless, heartless idiot."

Nancy Pelosi, minority leader for the House of Representatives, he added, is a "sub-human scoundrel."

Nugent also claimed the generally mild-mannered Romney agreed with his remarks.

"Mitt Romney knows what I'm saying is true. He puts it into words for him, I put it into words for me," he said.

I guess old Ted went to the extreme, but hey, people listened. Political correctness is nothing more than rhetoric, which no one listens to, when people are ridiculous they get attention.

yeah but it wasnt a direct threat, i think hes to smart to actually do that because then yes he would def go to jail... he was smart and did it indirectly...

i think obama is the biggest political puppet there ever has been... i think hes a fake and dangerous not only to the US people but to us as well as we all know how short of a leash we are led around on by the US...

The US needs more people like Ted to stand up against the gov... were slowly loosing all of our basic freedoms and rights with stupid laws that keep getting dreamed up and its because of the influence our neighbors to the south have. If we stay on the course we are on with giving the gov so much power we soon will not live in a free country... we almost do not as it is

The US is in trouble big time and its citizens need to wake up and pull the wool from their eyes

I strongly beleive in what ted nugent is saying and what he has done in the past in the political arena

teds message is good, but his delivery sucks.  i think the pro gun crowd has much better leaders to spread the word.....and frankly, some days this clown gives the antis more fuel.  i usually cringe when teds in the news, and today is no different.
opinions are like sphincters......everyone has one, and they all stink!

Agreed, he comes off as very extreme, but having a well known voice with endless airtime stating the obvious poorly is maybe sometimes better than millions of quiet voices in living rooms and coffee shops.

I'm not sure if everyone here has been keeping up with news of our neighbors to the south, but suffice to say the Obama admin. has been quietly passing some laws that if used will place our southern cousins in a very bad place for a very long time, and could actually lead to massive civil unrest, undoubtedly involving us in some degree.  That, I suspect is what Mr. Nugent was referring to.

Mr. Nugent may not be saying all the right things in the right way, but the message he's trying to get across is timely, and imperative.

Personally I love it, go get em Ted. The man could care less what any of the Liberal panty wastes think of him, we need more people to be like him not cringng at what he says. Who gives a rats ass what the antis think its not like being politically correct is ever going to change their mind so piss on em. Teddy hit the nail on the head with this one. Ted for president, heck I would move to the states if he ever got in.

Well Said Well said . Not many people now in days that have the balls to say what they want to . Takes a real man to say what he means and stands by his word .
