Ted Nugent continued to condemn democrats and liberals on CBS Friday morning, after previous remarks he made about the Obama administration caused an uproar.

The Rock and Roll singer first made headlines in March when he made violent comments against President Obama during a conference, which supported gun ownership rights.

"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," Nugent said, in a National Rifle Associate video that was released on YouTube.

The entertainer was later questioned by the Secret Service, which is required to follow up on all threats against the president's life, according to the Huffington Post.

"They came in as professionals," Nugent told CBS in an interview from his Texas ranch. "Good, solid, professional law enforcement representatives, some of the greatest warriors in law enforcement. Anyway, so we had a meeting and it was serious, dead serious, because I can actually be serious, and it was serious."

In March Nugent accused the government of "wiping it's a-- with the Constitution" and suggesting that the administration, which he referred to as "criminals," had been "living under a rock some place."

"We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November," Nugent proclaimed.

The rocker suggested Friday morning that it was wrong for the Liberal party to take his comments so seriously.

"I feel sorry for liberals who can be that brain dead as to take a clear statement of fear on my part and turn it into a threat against somebody else," Nugent said on CBS.

Nugent also claimed that he didn't believe the Secret Service actually considered him a threat and said he considered their visit "adorable."

Nugent has expressed strong support for the Romney campaign that has had little to say about Nugent's comments other than that his "divisive language" was "offensive and inappropriate."
