It's amazing to me how this has-been 'musician' remains relevant in common political discourse. Although, I did find it amusing when he referred to Hillary Clinton and Obama as 'criminals,' considering he most likely supported Bush and Cheney during their terms as overlord.

Ted Nugent is an attention whore? Say it isn't so.....

At least Kim Kardashian is nice to look at.

The Democratic National Committee and Obama campaign have launched a multimedia offensive against Romney over Nugent,

The Secret Service shouldn't be involved in that. Isn't the Secret Service supposed to be non-partisan?

Making Ted Nugent go away should be an easy way to drive voters to the polls.

Yes. When Sean Hannity was losing his shiat over Obama inviting a negro musician called "Common" to the White House, Jon Stewart aired concert footage of Hannity and Huckabee's good buddy Ted Nugent exhorting Hillary Clinton to suck on his machine gun.

No, but if there's a guy they need to talk to for some pointers on picking up young girls, it's definitely the Nuge.

Mr. Nugent was within his First Amendment rights. He did not make any unlawful threats against the president. It is inappropriate for Obama to use the secret service to intimidate political opposition.

The Secret Service investigates all threats made against the President. There's no such thing as a 'lawful' threat on the President's life.

Well, he said if Barack Obama was elected, Nugent would either be in jail or dead. That statement, without clarification (which he did not offer) was that he would take some sort of action against the President. Like it or not, a reasonable person could read the statement that way. So the Secret Service investigates that threat. Barack Obama could specifically order the Secret Service not to investigate the threat, and they still would. It's protocol. Any threat, veiled, implied or direct is investigated.

That statement cannot be viewed as a true threat because it was (1) conditioned on a future event, (2) predictive rather than threatening, and (3) too vague to be treated as a true threat against anyone.

As I said, it was a veiled or implied threat, not a direct threat. That said, it's still a threat, and the Secret Service investigates all threats on the President. The fact that it was whistleblowing statement that wasn't intended or in any way a credible threat doesn't mean they aren't going to investigate. Because they investigate every threat made to the President, and, again, the President has no role in the investigations on threats. You can argue that it's a pointless waste of time, but stop claiming that it's anything but the Secret Service following the same protocol it has always followed, because you are wrong.

Nugent is such an attention whore that they're basically giving him what he wants - martyr status in the survivalist dipshiat community and a bigger platform for his nonsense.

Why can't we get this worked up about George Thorogood?

No they're the sword arm of the liberal menace looking to silence any who show opposition to the ursurper. I defy you to google and find just one example of Mr Nugent saying anything remotely threatening to a politician, or the SS investigating anyone else for saying something.

That correctly states the law as to why it could not be prosecuted or sued in tort as common-law assault. The crime of "making terroristic threats" and in addition there is a specific crime implicated his actions. Threatening the President of the United States is a class D felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making "any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States


Some good background on how the law has been applied can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Threatening_the_president
