A Texas GOP congressman who has floated the possibility of impeaching President Barack Obama announced Monday that controversial rocker Ted Nugent would be his guest at Tuesday's State of the Union address.

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), who claimed earlier this year that he'd be willing to file articles of impeachment over Obama's gun control push, addressed the development in a statement, stressing that Nugent would be available for media interviews after Obama's speech.

"I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama," the congressman said. "After the address I'm sure Ted will have plenty to say."

Nugent has been one of Obama's most inflammatory critics, taking an increasingly combative tone in the wake of the president's new push to reduce gun violence. He drew nationwide backlash for comments made last year in which he called for attendees at a National Rifle Association rally to "ride into that battlefield and chop [Democrats'] heads off in November." He also said he would be "dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama is re-elected. The Secret Service later visited the entertainer and said they had resolved the issue, but an unbowed Nugent didn't tone down his rhetoric.

Speaking earlier this year about Obama's proposed measures to address gun violence, Nugent suggested that he and his buddies were prepared for an armed rebellion against an "evil, dangerous" Obama, whom he accused of preparing a broad plan to confiscate guns.

Stockman could end up having a lot on his plate on Tuesday evening, apart from any potential excitement provided by his guest. His office has also announced that the congressman will fact-check the president's address in real time over Twitter.

UPDATE: 4:10 p.m. -- Asked by the New York Times if he'd be armed at the State of the Union, Nugent said he planned to "demilitarize" before entering the Capitol.

Not sure what the protocol is for having a guest, but as long as proper decorum is present, who cares?  If it means Secret Service is alongside him, ready to usher him out if necessary, so be it.  This is a solemn occasion and there is no room for another outbreak like the guy who yelled "liar."  Even that dolt later apologized, which is more than we would expect from the looney Nugent.

It doesn't happen.  Almost every year during President Bush's administration, someone gave tickets to Code Pink members.  Occasionally they started trouble, usually they didn't.  The members were never censured for it nor prevented from it.

I don't personally think the members should be able to invite guests, but I also don't think this needs to be done live in a Joint Session either.  I personally feel like here in the 21st Century we could get him heard just as well from the Oval Office.

Yeah, I didn't expect so, just a wish expressed.

As to the Joint Session, well it's one of those pomp and circumstance things isn't it? Congress got a written "report" from Jefferson on out until Wilson One more thing we can blame Woodrow Wilson for it appears.

I don't think the left has even close to as many wackos on the right. Just about a week or
two ago yet another anti-government right-wing extremist Jimmy Lee Dykes(this time in
Alabama) murdered a bus driver a took a kid hostage and so Dykes grows a list of recent
right-wingers from Jim Adkisson(who murdered people in a Tennessee church because he thought
it was a 'liberal' church. In his manifesto he said "Go Kill liberals" and surprise surprise
was fan of Michael Savage, Hannity, Oreilly and Bernie Goldberg) to Richard Poplawski(Killed
I think 3 cops in Pittsburgh ans surprise surprise linked a Glenn Beck video on storm from)
to numerous other examples I could cite in recent years.

The left simply doesn't have even close to the number of nutcase the right has and its
been thatr way for a while now but especially within the last 5 years. I think you would
have to go back to the 1970's to a time in the US where the left upstaged the right in terms
of the number of wackjobs

and to the extent the left has wackjobs they certainly aren't being manipulated and used by
the Democratic party and the "liberal media" (the true "liberal media" as opposed to the
fake "liberal media" the right mentions all the time) the way the Republican party and the
right-wing media manipulates the nutcases on the right. This is beyond obvious

It goes without saying that Nugent is a classic demagogue and attention whore. I wouldn't

not lose any sleep if someone decided to beat his right-wing ass if does pull something

No one is peeing because of Ted. Ted is demgogues who makes living duping people like you.
Ted is either WAY OUT THERe(not a little) or pretending to be WAY OUT THERE to rile up his
sheeple base (people like you)

Oh and how did Ted take Pierce to task? By an obnoxious demagogues? By spewing strawman?
By "taking to task" you obviously don't mean giving a cogent intelligent argument something
Nugent seems incapable of doing. He is capable of yelling and screaming irrational drivel
something right-wing like you just love.

Get with the program; it's Superstorm Sandy, not Hurricane Sandy.  Thousands of insurance claims hinge on your compliance in this matter.

As for Menchu Sanchez, I have no doubt she acted valiantly.  So did thousands of utility workers and first responders, in much more dangerous conditions.

Wilson didn't heckle President Obama during a joint session of Congress in the Capitol during a State of the Union address? Sure it was.

WASHINGTON — The nastiness of August reached from the nation's town halls into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday as President Barack Obama tried to move his health care plan forward.

"we"? Who is the "We" here? You're only writing for yourself as far as I can tell

So on that note I have no idea what "Joe Wilson" you thought I was talking about
under the context in which I mentioned "Joe Wilson" it should have been very clear
who I was talking about(Hint: Look at HSF's response)

With this : "Joe Wilson "You Lie" stunt" it's rather specific and clear who he meant, how many "Joe Wilsons" shouted "you lie" at the President at a State of the Union Address and so would be comparable to Nugent under the same circumstances  as another State of the Union Address?
