Ted Nugent will meet with Secret Service to discuss the recent remarks he made about President Barack Obama.

The right wing rocker told Glenn Beck Wednesday he will be as "polite and supportive as I possibly can be, which will be thoroughly."

At the National Rifle Association convention last weekend, Nugent, 63, made several controversial comments including, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

Nugent clarified his comments to Beck on his radio show saying, "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."

George Oilvie, a Secret Service spokesman, told ABC News, “We are aware of them and we are conducting the appropriate follow-up now."

Nugent's meeting with the Secret Service will held on Thursday.
