Ted Nugent to be Rep. Steve Stockman’s guest at State of the Union

Texas Congressman Steve Stockman is bringing a hot date to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Tuesday.

None other than musician and staunch gun advocate Ted Nugent will be the Republican Representative’s guest.

“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.”

And Nugent does tend to always have “plenty to say.” He called Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. a “traitor” in July for voting for Obamacare and told CNN host Piers Morgan to leave gun owners “the hell alone” just last week.

Considering that Obama is certain to talk about gun control in his State of the Union this year, Nugent’s attendance is bound to create controversy and distract from the President’s speech.

On another note, Stockman also announced that he will be revealing The Obama Failometer this week – a ten-foot-long billboard that will “objectively measure the failure of Obama’s economic policies” on “a scale from 1 to 1,000.” The Failometer will factor in jobs created, civilian labor force participation rate and black and Hispanic unemployment. Currently, the score is “off-the-charts” at 1,179, Stockman’s statement said.

In case you want to check out how badly Obama’s economic policies are failing, this giant structure will stand just outside Stockman’s office in the Cannon House Office Building.

    really? Threaten to assassinate POTUS and then be a guest at the State of the Union?

    Nugent IS The State of The Union… stupid, fanatical, armed and on drugs…

    1. Dagger says:

      You are ignorant. Nugent has never, ever done drugs. Shows how pityful you are.

    2. Peach says:

      30 Gram Steve must be looking to buy or sell……

  2. john says:

    This is a message from Rep. Stockman that he doesn’t care about children being blown to pieces by bullets. This should energize the gun control movement to take more serious steps to control guns.

    To have a man who last year was questioned by the Secret Service as a threat to the president of the United States as your guest at the State of the Union speech is an insult to our nation. This congressman must be removed from office,

    Will the right wing anti-Americans be excited when Ted the has been jumps up and yells at the president? Will this finally be the end of the tea party?

  3. Roger Mitchell says:

    I’ve heard Nugent say some really off the wall stuff but thats is his or anyones 1st amendment right until this administration decides to go after that part of the Constitution as it now sees fit to attack the 2nd and so on until its a historical memory , We all well understand how Obama feels about the forefathers and the constitution they put in place to protect the people of this country for tyrants in the future .
    ( quote ) God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.
    The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is
    wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts
    they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,
    it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. …
    And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not
    warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of
    resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as
    to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost
    in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
    time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
    It is its natural manure.”

    1. Ant says:

      Since Ted Nugent is now the voice of the Tea Party and GOP, it shouldn’t come as any suprise why all of you keep loosing elections……

    2. C.K. says:

      Ted Nugent is a disgrace to this country and shame on the Congressmen for inviting him to make a mockery o the pain of those who have experienced gun violence.

  4. john says:

    And I bet all you right wingers just love Ted’s music. What a joke the right wing in this country has become.

    1. Chris Couitcher says:

      After reading a few of the comments about uncle Ted it’s clear you don’t understand or care about the constitution or your rights your to hung up on bashing someone who isn’t afraid to stand up and speak his mind. That’s all you know which means your deathly afraid you have no back bone and love having someone tell what you can and can’t do when to do it and how much you can have that’s were this is heading and your are so blind. Why is ok for people to express there negative opininon about guns and there not crazy or a terrorist but if you stand up for your constitutional right your are ? I think anyone who is willing to give up anyone of our constitutional rights is crazy maybe OBama should have one of those drones watching you.

  5. Mo Joe says:

    Just what we need, another A Hole as a point man for Republicans.

  6. Gary Q says:

    Class move by Stockman. Will Nugent yell “Liar” from the gallery? God, these Republicans keep digging the hole deeper. Yes, I think Nugent is a great standard bearer for the GOP. I hope he at least has to pass through a metal detector. Didn’t he already threaten the POTUS?

  7. chris martin says:

    Too bad there aren’t more of these idiots out there running their mouths for the gop to listen to and support, the downfall of this obstructionist party would happen sooner, it will take time but hope is still alive, Thanks TED, You draft dodging pedophile, remember You bragged about this stuff, tough guy!

  8. Bruce Smith says:

    Coming from Bloomfield Hills, MI, I would have thought that Stockton was a reasonably smart man. However, based on this Nugent I am reevaluating my opinion.

  9. Juli says:

    Let’s see; Ted Nugent threatens violence against the POTUS & then Sec of State, & gets invited to the State of the Union. Is that what it takes to be an honored guest of the GOP these days? I’m just waiting for this redneck-psycho to announce his plans to run for office. You all think I’m kidding but I’m not. He would fit right in; He will say whatever it takes to get attention, he’s a pandering, shameless, publicity hog desperate to hold on to any appearance of relevance & an unhealthy obsession with firearms & a has weird, paranoid, persecution complex, who has no inner filter as to what comes out of his mouth & no sense of personal responsibility.
    OMG!!!!!!! He’s Sarah Palin !
    Yup, he’s gonna be running as the next VP, I’ll bet big $ on it.
    Did I mention I’m not kidding ?

  10. Juli says:

    Oh, I almost forgot; he’s a draft doger & a bigot.
