Thanks to his comments that he would either be “in jail or dead” this time next year if President Obama is reelected, rocker Ted Nugent is due for a visit from the Secret Service on Thursday (April 19).
“We actually have heard from the Secret Service and they have a duty. I support them. I salute them. And I look forward to our meeting tomorrow,” Nugent said on Wednesday’s Glenn Beck radio show.
“I’m sure we’ll have a great conversation,” he continued. “Bottom line is, I’ve never threatened anybody’s life in my life. I’ve never threatened. I don’t waste breath threatening.”
Nugent came to the Secret Service’s — and the country’s attention — when he made some incendiary remarks about the President at a National Rifle Association convention.
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
He qualified his remarks to Beck:
“Every reference I made, whether it’s a shot across the bow or targeting the enemy, it always ended the sentence with ‘in November at the voter booth,'” he said. “I’m not trying to diminish the seriousness of this, because if the Secret Service are doing it they are serious. They are dedicated and I will be as polite and supportive as I possibly can be, which will be thoroughly.”
