Ted Nugent will not face any criminal charges for his rant earlier this week against Barack Obama.

Threatening the President is against the law, of course, and the musician was forced to meet with the Secret Service after relaying a metaphor to attendees at a NRA convention that concluded with:

"If the coyote's in your living room, pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."

"The Secret Service interview of Ted Nugent has been completed," spokesman Brian Leary told Yahoo News. "The issue has been resolved. The Secret Service does not anticipate any further action."

Well, not that kind of action at least... if you know what we mean!

Appearing prior to the meeting on Glenn Beck's radio show (above video), Nugent said:

"The bottom line is I've never threatened anybody's life in my life. I don't threaten, I don't waste breath threatening. I just conduct myself as a dedicated 'We the people' activist because I've saluted too many flag-draped coffins to not appreciate where the freedom comes from."

Mitt Romney's campaign is fighting back in the War on Dogs, excerpting a passage from President Obama's memoir in which he admits eating one as a kid.

The Daily Caller's Jim Treacher wrote a blog post with an excerpt from Dreams From My Father in which Obama writes of eating dog as a boy in Indonesia.

"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)," writes Obama.

Romney, Obama

Treacher brought out the excerpt as a way of responding to a very odd, old story that has haunted Romney since the Boston Globe first reported it in 2007.

The story goes like this: In 1983, Romney strapped the family dog's crate to the roof of the car for a 12-hour drive from Massachusetts to Canada.

On the trip, the dog, an Irish Setter named Seamus, suffered the "runs," as Ann Romney put it this week. Her husband coolly pulled over to hose off the dog and the car, then kept driving, with the dog back in the crate on the roof.

It's safe to say Ted Nugent has no regrets.

The conservative guitarist appeared on Dana Loesch's radio show and addressed his controversial rant against Barack Obama at a NRA convention over the weekend.

"I'm a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally," Nugent told the host of the backlash coming his way, including talk of a Secret Service investigation.

"And there are some power-abusing, corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth."

Did Nugent threaten the President's life? No, he says he's "incapable" of such an action and labeled himself "Mother Teresa with a guitar" compared to the machinations of Federal Government employees. Listen for yourself:

The Secret Service is looking into comments made this weekend by extreme right-winger Ted Nugent.

During a gathering sponsored by the National Rife Association, the rocker - referring to the upcoming election - urged members of the organization help "chop their heads off in November" and added:

"I'll tell you this right now: If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"

Referring to the current administration as "criminals," Nugent appeared to directly threaten Obama - which is a crime - by ranting:

"If the coyote's in your living room, pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."

Responded Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Mitt Romney, the candidate Nugent is backing: "Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil."

During a press conference in Cartagena yesterday, standing alongside Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Barack Obama addressed the Secret Service scandal surrounding up to a dozen agents and five members of the U.S. military.

They are accused of soliciting prostitutes in that nation and have been relieved of their posts.

After praising the role of Secret Service employees in general - telling reporters these men and women perform "extraordinary service" on a daily basis - he decreed the reported actions of the men cited in this weekend's report:

"I expect that investigation to be thorough, and I expect it to be rigorous. If it turns out that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I'll be angry... We are representing the people of the United States, and when we travel to another country, I expect us to observe the highest standards."

Following comments by Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen - who criticized Ann Romney for "never [working] a day in her life" and, therefore, lacking the knowledge to speak on economic issues - the wife of Mitt Romney finds herself supported by an unlikely ally:

Barack Obama.

  • Barack Obama at Florida Atlantic University
  • Ann Romney and Mitt Romney

Speaking to Columbus, Ohio television station WCMH yesterday, the President defended the work of stay-at-home moms everywhere, while also emphasizing that family members ought to be off limits in an election.

“First of all there is no tougher job than being a mom," Obama said. "I think this was an ill-advised statement by somebody on television. It's not something that I subscribe to, and moreover my general rule is you don't talk about the spouses of elected officials because they've got a really tough job. They're out there supporting their husband or wife who have chosen to serve in public eye.

"Sometimes that spouse isn't volunteering for that job, but they're doing the best they can supporting somebody they love and they care about. And I think they're off limits, so on both counts it was the wrong thing to say and I haven't met Ms. Romney but she seems like a wonderful woman and I know that she's devoted her life to her family.”

Ann Romney also shot back at Rosen this week, telling Fox News women should respect the career choices made by other women and that mothers are perfectly capable of speaking out on the "legacy of debt" she believes Obama is leaving the next generation.

It doesn't appear that President Obama's opinion of Kanye West has changed.

After Obama let it slip before an interview (below) with ABC's Nightline two years ago that he thought the rapper was a "jackass" for interrupting Taylor Swift's speech at the MTV VMAs, he offered up a further assessment of him this week.

The verdict? Unchanged.

Asked if he prefers Kanye or Jay-Z," the President replied with a smile, "Jay-Z. Although I do like Kanye. He's a Chicago guy. Smart. He's very talented."

After being reminded of the slam heard around the world, Obama stuck to his guns regarding the outspoken performer and boyfriend of Kim Kardashian.

"He is a jackass," he added. "But he's talented."

His girlfriend, on the other hand ...

Though he does not officially support gay marriage, President Obama voiced opposition to a proposed anti-gay marriage ballot measure in Minnesota today.

Obama for America Minnesota Communications Director Kristin Sosanie said:

"While the President does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the record is clear that the President has long opposed divisive and discriminatory efforts to deny rights and benefits to same sex couples."

Barack Obama at the UN

"That's what the Minnesota ballot initiative would do - single out and discriminate against committed gay and lesbian couples - and the President does not support it."

The proposed Minnesota marriage amendment reads simply, "Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Minnesota."

It's the second time in as many months Obama has weighed in on the issue.

It's begun.

With Mitt Romney's three-primary sweep this week, he effectively made his clinching the Republican presidential nomination a matter of when, not if.

Not surprisingly, President Obama has released a new TV ad this week, in response to criticism he's incurred from oil companies - and Mitt Romney.

The President argues that he has actually boosted domestic oil production, and is only a target because he sought to end tax breaks for oil corporations.

Tax breaks that would ease the burden on average Americans - by his calculus, at least. Obama's ad not-so-subtly links big oil to, you guessed it, Mitt. Watch:

If the election were today, who would you vote for?

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney inched closer to his party's nomination on Tuesday with a sweep of the GOP primaries in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia, and found himself in his first direct engagement with President Obama.

Romney emerged from the evening with substantial gains in delegates and a growing perception that he was winning over previously reluctant elements of the party, or if nothing else, just plain outlasting his more conservative competition.

Either way, this was in some respects the start of the general election.

Obama for the first time singled Romney out by name, during an address dedicated to a budget championed by Romney’s marquee endorser in Wisconsin, Rep. Paul Ryan.

The President called Ryan's plan “social Darwinism” and said of Romney, “He said that he’s ‘very supportive’ of this new budget, and he even called it ‘marvelous,’ which is a word you don’t often hear when it comes to describing a budget."

"It’s a word you don’t hear generally.”

Referring obliquely to perceptions of his potential opponent’s elite pedigree, Obama sought to cast himself as more in touch with the public.
