Ted Nugent Slams 'Brain Dead' Liberals, Flings Profanity At CBS News Team (VIDEO)

Ted Nugent Interview

Rocker Ted Nugent was given another chance to speak out this week in an interview that aired Friday on CBS' "This Morning." He didn't fail to deliver on the bombast and provocation that have characterized his recent public appearances, especially graphic comments he made last month about President Barack Obama and Democrats.

At a National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis in April, Nugent unloaded, saying that he would be "dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama is re-elected. The Secret Service took notice of his remarks, and as is customary in such situations,paid the entertainer a visit. Nugent has maintained that he had a cordial meeting with the agents, a claim that he repeated on Friday.

"They came in as professionals," Nugent told CBS in an interview from his Texas ranch. "Good, solid, professional law enforcement representatives, some of the greatest warriors in law enforcement. Anyway, so we had a meeting and it was serious, dead serious, because I can actually be serious, and it was serious."

Continued Nugent: "I feel sorry for liberals who can be that brain dead as to take a clear statement of fear on my part and turn it into a threat against somebody else."

Nugent also called the event "adorable" and explained his belief that the Secret Service personnel who had interviewed him never believed his perceived threat was actually a concern.

The controversy created by the "Motor City Madman" -- who reportedly endorsed GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney after the campaign called him -- was seized upon by Democrats last month, who used it as an opportunity to hold the presumptive GOP nominee's feet to the fire.

The Romney campaign was largely silent on the matter, however, saying that "divisive language is offensive and inappropriate" and announcing that the former Massachusetts governor believes "everyone needs to be civil." Nugent told CBS that the campaign "expressed support" after his NRA comments.

During the interview, Nugent launched into a rambling tirade about being a "moderate." It concluded with profanity directed at the interviewer and a female producer who was off-camera. From CBS:

"I think in an honest and sincere analysis of what Ted Nugent is, I think once you take away the battle fatigues of my rock and roll insanity -- I like to use this analogy: I'm a welder. When I work, sparks are flying and there's soot, but you know what? When I'm done welding, I take off the regalia. I shower, and I'm a pretty nice guy to hang around with. You know what I am after the welding? I'm a moderate. I'm an extremely loving and passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I'm a damned nice guy. ... And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I'll [expletive] your [expletive], or [expletive] you. How's that sound?"

Nugent later apologized for the outburst after pressure from his wife.

I'm surprised that Romney would want to associate himself not only with anyone like this but anyone with a strong opinion on anything.

Actually there was a comment from the Romney camp right after the interview about how there is not need for disrespect and inflammatory comments.Weak but the point was there.

Ted is Ted and it was the Secret Service that investigated him probably based on the Patriot act inacted right after 2001 by the Bush adminstration that says they have right and duty to investigate whatever they feel as  threats not only against the president but this country. 

But Seriously his comments where no worse then Sarah Palin putting CROSS HAIRS of Democrats on her Facebook pages and no one took that bimbo serious.

What got me is Ted  Calling the Troops his Blood Brothers really after he did everything He could to AVOID the Army, Even Elvis served in the military. I doubt that most in the military feel they are blood brothers no many how many concerts he had done for them in the past.  I have relative the died in war, since WWII to Vietnam, I consider him a draft dodger.

Ted has always been like this.  Calls people out, swears and goes off.

This is hardly news.  I will say he was out of line with kill the president comment. Ted may not agree with his views, but there is a certain amount of respect you show the office, no matter who is in it.

 I do too. I have family who went to Vietnam and one of them still hasn't recovered but says he feels he did the right thing in serving.
