Springsteen plays for
Obama campaign

USA Today, by Staff

Original Article

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.

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

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?

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.

Osama bin Laden´s son-in-law, the voice of fiery al-Qaida propaganda videotapes after the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans for his role as the terror group´s spokesman. The verdict came after about five hours of deliberation in the case against Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking al-Qaeda figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. The Kuwaiti imam had testified during a three-week trial that he answered bin Laden´s request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like

BRUSSELS - President Barack Obama says he´s concerned that some NATO allies are reducing their spending on defense. Obama says for collective defense to work, everybody has to pitch in. He says that´s necessary to ensure that NATO remains a credible force in the world. Obama says NATO can´t just be a U.S. or British exercise. Obama spoke at a news conference with European Union leaders in Brussels amid concern about Russia´s annexation of the Ukrainian region of Crimea. Obama says the situation in Ukraine, in his words, "reminds us that our freedom isn´t free. Obama meets later Wednesday with NATO Secretary General Anders

"When you shrink that affects what can eat you, what you can eat, how successful you´re going to be at reproducing. Bigger is generally better."

When NASA astronauts were suiting up to go to space in the 1960s, they had to make a big decision before they explored the world above us: How large of a man are you? Getting it wrong could damage the mission. According to a former NASA life support system expert who helped construct space diapers, otherwise known as Maximum Absorbency Garment systems, each astronaut in the Gemini and Apollo programs had to wear a condom-type sheath with a hole at the end for urination inside their suits.

A new species of praying mantis, Liturgusa algorei, indigenous to the thick rain forests of Peru has been named after former vice president Al Gore; one of 19 new species of the insect recently identified by entomologist Gavin Svenson. The discoveries came after Svenson, curator of invertebrate zoology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, decided to search through both old collections at museums and embark on field expeditions into the forests of Central and South America. Unlike the patient, zen-like praying mantis we´re all familiar with, these equatorial cousins take a decidedly different approach to both hunting and self-preservation. "This group,

President Obama, like most Kenyan politicians, loves beating about the bush and avoiding the real issue. In Kenya, we all know the big problem is corruption, but we are addressing virtually everything else but corruption. And so in America, our cousin President Obama dances around serious issues like the typical Kenyan he is. When Russia invaded Georgia in 2008, Obama thundered with indignation and a fulsome, righteous — and justified — anger. The people of Georgia thought he would follow through on his fiery words with real action to set their country free of Russia’s torment, but wapi! With Cousin Barry, as with

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article.

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included. Taking the time to get and spend money on a degree, in short, means you might actually find yourself in a financial hole. The survey may add to parents' doubts about
