Fierce Obama critic gets State of Union invite

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

Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas said Monday 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.
