It should be an interesting evening at the Capitol tonight. President Obama will deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress, and among the invited guests will be children and families from the Newtown massacre. And to show that the Republicans know how to up the ante, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) has invited his own special guest.
Outspoken rocker Ted Nugent will attend President Obama’s State of the Union Address Tuesday in order to take on the media and “counter the scams and lies of the left,” he explained to talk radio host Mike Broomhead Monday.
“We know that the president will have the state of the union stacked and jammed with props, children, and victims of violent crime, ” Nugent said. “And my friends wanted me to attend to counter that the way that I do: with facts, statistics and common sense and logic and a celebration of self-evident truths. So I will be taking on the media orgy following the State of the Union Address.”
Nugent said the media does not realize he is a “force to be reckoned with” and therefore he will “dominate them.”
Mr. Nugent is on the record as having threatened the life of the president, Hillary Clinton, and said he would be dead within a year if Barack Obama was re-elected.
So you can forget about Marco Rubio and Rand Paul delivering the official GOP rebuttal; Ted Nugent will blow them away. Figuratively, of course.
Should be a swell evening.
