Springsteen plays for
Obama campaign

USA Today, by Staff

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/13/2012 9:08:44 AM

Rocker Bruce Springsteen once said he wouldn't perform during the 2012 presidential campaign. The Boss has changed his mind. President Obama's campaign said today that Springsteen will appear along with ex-President Bill Clinton a pro-Obama rally Thursday in Parma, Ohio. "Bruce Springsteen's values echo what the President and Vice President (Biden) stand for: hard work, fairness, integrity," said Jim Messina, Obama for America's campaign manager. "His appearances will help with our get out the vote effort in these critical swing states and we are thrilled with his ongoing support."

Springsteen is a poser. He's a multimillionaire and playing the "I'm an regular guy" role with his jeans and t-shirt. I wish he would go away.

Maybe he'll have a new song about Scranton, "I See the Unemployment Risin."

Bruce is just jealous that the Stones are sold out at The Villages and other retirement communities in Florida.

Just another idiot who mistakes gobs of money for grey matter.

If only little barry could put on some serious weight, attach a gold ear ring, then suck on a big saxophone...maybe then he could join bruce on stage and be a member of the band...

Nothing I like better than a rick person telling me how to live my life like a "regular" guy as he and his band go about collecting trash cans full of dollars for singing and gyrating on stages.

What intellects these people have...or is it the neo-marxists having just one more "love in" for themselves as malignant narcissists?

I'll take the idea of malignant narcissists at play!

Obama could have had Bon Jovi if he wanted a liberal NJ band.
The likes of Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Don Henley and David Crosby are what I call 'Plaid Shirt
Capitalist' they sing songs against 'the man' then fly off in Lear Jets to concerts depositing millions in bank accounts in the drawer next to Mitt Romney's money.
Two faced idiots. What Springsteen really needs is voice lessons.

To each his own, but I could never understand the attraction for Bruce Springsteen. So many of my friends are crazy about his music. I always found it bland and pretentious. He's a perfect music choice for Obama.

And #3 is funny.

Another among the many examples that remind us that artists and stage performers and celebrities should never be looked to for wisdom. Once upon a time everybody, including the performers themselves, knew this. No one would have dreamed of listening to their opinions about politics or other important matters. They were in fact the last people in the world to be consulted about such matters. Today it is different. Celebrity and riches are thought somehow to confer intelligence, insight, special understanding, etc. This is a reflection upon the public and the dumbing down of standards.

#21--It's part of the Europeanization of America. I have noticed that Europeans have a oddly-sainted view of celebrities--when I've gone over to Europe, their magazines and television shows obsess over their celebrities (models, movie, music, and sports stars); and when my colleagues from Europe come over to the U.S., they can't wait to talk about American celebrities. I believe it comes from the old European view of vassals and lords--the lord was your protector and master. Unlike most Americans, Europeans do not naturally have an instinct that individuals are the masters of their own fates--the Euros' instincts are to rely on the blessings from above to sustain them. So naturally, when "better" folks speak, you should listen. The Left in America tends to promote this perspective, that you should rely on the almighty power of the government for your spiritual and physical nourishment. Liberal celebrities truly believe that they are endowed with special wisdom because of their status; so they opine freely.

If I remember correctly, this is the BO's MO to get yutes to gather in large crowds.

"Dude! So what if we get locked in the stadium for an hour or so after the free Bruce concert?- just follow the Clap n Holler lights and we'll meet up at Starbucks afterwards."

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Global warming is not being taken seriously and time is running out to avoid consequences like flooded cities and dried out farmland, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said Thursday. "We are quickly coming to the point where we are not going to be able to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius," Kim said at the start of the IMF-World Bank spring meetings in Washington. "Warming by two degrees Celsius is going to have major implications.... 40 percent of the arable land in Africa will be gone at two degrees Celsius; Bangkok could very well be underwater at two

Almost immediately people start getting out their cell phones and capturing the shirtless showdown including the person who captured this video you´re watching.

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

Why President Obama
wants the economy to fail
Daily Caller, by John Jordan    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 4/9/2014 1:23:42 PM     Post Reply
The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

Poll: 62 Percent Of Americans Believe
GOP Will Repeal Obamacare

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
