Rocker Ted Nugent, a staunch supporter of Republican Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, hurled a barrage of vicious insults at President Obama during an appearance at an NRA convention in St. Louis. The crass Conservative activist suggested that if President Obama is reelected in November that he (Nugent) would “either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

It’s not clear if Nugent was making a direct threat toward the President. However, the Secret Service is investigating Nugent’s remarks. Nugent accused Mr. Obama of “wiping his (expletive) with the constitution” and that he leads a “vile, evil America-hating administration.” Nugent urged an audience of gun enthusiasts to vote for Mitt Romney in the November election. “If you can’t galvanize and promote and recruit people to vote for Mitt Romney, we’re done,” said Nugent.

Gov. Romney has yet to publically denounce Nugent’s offensive statements. However, his campaign issued a tepid response urging civility. “Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”

Democratic National Committee Chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz released a statement calling for a stronger denunciation of Nugent’s comments. “Mitt Romney surrogate Ted Nugent made offensive comments about President Obama and November’s elections this weekend that are despicable, deplorable and completely beyond the pale. Yet what have we heard from Mitt Romney and the Republican Party, who should be outraged that someone representing them is using language like this to make a political point? Absolutely nothing.”
