Ted Nugent: I Will Either Be Dead Or In Jail If Obama Re-Elected In 2012
It looks like Mr. Nugent will be getting a visit from the Secret Service after comments made at the National Rifle Association conference last weekend. Nugent, an outspoken advocate of gun rights said “If Barack Obama becomes the President in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
Sensing the pending uphill battle to defeat President Obama this November, Republicans have turned up the rhetoric aimed at the President. Just last week Foster Freiss came under fire for saying he hoped Obama’s “teleprompters are bulletproof”.
Unlike Mr. Freiss’ comments, which were never investigated, Mr. Nugent will be spending some time speaking with members of the U.S. Secret Service before he performs in Oklahoma tomorrow evening.
Do you think Ted Nugent’s comments are threatening against the President? Should charges be pursued against him? If jokes about bodily harm against Sarah Palin were being made, would people continue to simply write them off ‘tough talk‘? Where do we draw the line with this kind of speech?
