Nugent Says Secret Service Concluded He Made “No Threats”

Ted Nugent met with Secret Service agents today in Oklahoma, and in a statement posted on his Web site said that the meeting concluded with the determination that “I have never made any threats of violence towards anyone.”

The Secret Service visit was prompted by comments Nugent made over the weekend at the NRA convention in which he said, among other things, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Nugent said that what he said was metaphor. “By no stretch of the imagination did I threaten anyone’s life, or hint at violence or mayhem. Metaphors needn’t be explained to educated people.
 
“I met with two fine, professional Secret Service agents in OK today. Good, solid, professional meeting concluding that I have never made any threats of violence towards anyone. The meeting could not have gone better. I thanked them for their service, we shook hands and went about our business. Godbless the good federal agents wherever they may be.”
