The State of our Union is.....

 “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."~ Ted Nugent at the National Rifle Association Convention, April 2012.

National Rifle Association board member and Washington Times columnist Ted Nugent alluded to the start of the American Revolution in an interview with during the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show, claiming that the Obama administration "is attempting to re-implement the tyranny of King George" and that "if you want another Concord Bridge, I got some buddies."

Only in America can you make statements like this about the President of the United States of America and be invited by a GOP member of Congress to be their special guest.
Some lawmakers are inviting victims of gun violence, and Obama is expected to push Congress to support a package of measures crafted in the aftermath of the slaughter of schoolchildren in Newtown, Conn., in December.
“I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama,” Stockman said in a statement. “After the address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”
Not so much if you are invited by a democratic member of Congress, and are  the mother of a dead American soldier and a peace activist like Cindy Sheehan, who was arrested in the House Gallery after refusing to cover up her T-Shirt that said "2,245 Dead. How many more?" -- a reference to the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq, before President Bush's State of the Union Address.

This is an object lesson that the world is watching our dysfunction and it makes us all less safe when the GOP is insane.

No lie.
