Ted Nugent to be congressman's guest of honor for State of the Union

WASHINGTON — A congressman says he's invited rocker Ted Nugent, who has referred to President Barack Obama's administration as “evil, America-hating,” to the State of the Union address.

U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, said today on his website that Nugent will be his guest for the president's speech Tuesday night. Stockman has talked of impeaching Obama over his gun control proposals.

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.”

Nugent's remarks led to meetings with representatives of the Secret Service.
