Obama vs. the Nuge at Red Rocks
Last month, rocker Ted Nugent drew Secret Service scrutiny when he said, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," at an NRA convention in St. Louis.

That was on April 18, ancient history in the news cycle, but as roving heavy-metal reporter Brandon Marshall learned last night at Red Rocks Amphitheatre before Nugent's concert with Styx and REO Speedwagon, many Nugent fans are still no fan of Obama. And to be fair, a few give zero fucks about politics and were just there to rock. Godspeed.
When this male Ted Nugent fan was asked about the recent investigation by the Secret Service into the Nuge regarding some controversial comments Nugent made about President Obama, his response was, "It's bullshit! He [Ted Nugent] lets the FBI train on his property."
We asked this Nugent fan if the Secret Service had grounds for an investigation: "No. He did nothing wrong and said nothing threatening."
"He's the worst President in history," a Ted Nugent fan states when asked what she thinks about President Obama. This was a common statement among fans of Ted Nugent at the show.
