What I find amusing is that Americans are so gullible.
Bruce Springsteen represents the working man, right?
Bruce Springsteen has never held a job in his life.
That's a fact. Go read any of the books Dave Marsh wrote about him.
Bruce was proud of that fact in the seventies-he swore he'd NEVER hold a job that was unrelated to music..
But when it helped to sell records he sure started acting like he'd worked in factories and the like. That became his image, and it was a farce.
It's kind of like Obama himself. He surrounds himself with celebrities, and acts like he's just plain folk, and America eats it up.
Earlier this year, it seemed unlikely that Springsteen would work on behalf of Obama again this year as he did in 2008, and at the time he seemed somewhat disappointed in Obama.
“I would like to have seen more activism in job creation sooner than it came,” he said, according to an ABC News report in February. “I would like to have seen people helped out, seen some of these [home] foreclosures stopped somehow.”
Springsteen said Obama was “more friendly to corporations than I thought he would be."
I just wish Americans would actually look at what these liars DO and stop voting based on bumper-sticker slogans and rock star appearances at rallies.
