Texas -- Rocker and controversial political activist Ted Nugent is known for his fiery remarks.And he lived up to his reputation in an interview with "CBS This Morning," taking strong exception to an observation that he's not a moderate.Nugent made headlines three weeks ago at a National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis when he said that, "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?"When the speech went viral, some critics called the comments a threat against President Obama. A few days later, Secret Service agents paid Nugent a visit, which Nugent says went well.Mitt Romney sought and got Nugent's endorsement - and Nugent says he heard from the Romney campaign after his NRA speech and that they "expressed support.""I got the sensation and not from Mitt himself, or Mrs. Romney, 'Stay on course, Ted.' Freedom of speech is a beautiful thing," Nugent said.Responding to some of Nugent's latest comments, the Romney campaign has publicly said that "divisive language is offensive and inappropriate, no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil."
