Rocker Bruce Springsteen may be Chris Christie's musical idol, but the Republican New Jersey governor and the Jersey rock icon have different political views.
Next week in Parma, Ohio, Springsteen will be performing on behalf of our favorite Kenyan, Barack Obama.
Ohio, of course, is a key battleground state; no Republican has ever won the presidency without taking Ohio.
Obama campaign officials are delighted.
The Obama/Biden team has been emphasizing its fight for the working middle class, and that’s certainly been Springsteen’s philosophical and political soul ground over the decades.
"Bruce Springsteen's values echo what the President and Vice President stand for: hard work, fairness, integrity," campaign manager Jim Messina said in a statement.

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."

Trust me, I am not waving the Romney flag here.

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.


  1. Bruce Springsteen's dad was a bus driver, so doesn't that somehow make Bruce a middle-class working man?

    No, I guess not.

    What we really need is another song written by Bruce about punching a time clock, working from 8 to 5, and then going to a 7-11 for a six-pack of 'Plain Joe' beer and a tank full o' gas for the '65 Chevy.

    The Boss is a freakin' fraud.

    I think we'd both agree he pulled it off on "Born To Run," because he was painting a picture.

    Once he started believing he was the champion of the working man without ever...well, started to fall about.

    Now that he thinks he's the new Woody Guthrie, he's just a silly Commie writing songs for the baseball playoffs.

    Meet the new Boss...


  3. >>...I think we'd both agree he pulled it off on "Born To Run," because he was painting a picture.

    Mmmmm... Actually, Bro, I think he "pulled it off on Born To Run" because I was young and not able to see through the Wall Of Sound that seemed to be celebrating the sort of life I was living then.

    Not saying there weren't some really good songs on the album - because there WERE! But it's funny that my favorite song from 'BTR' back then, was also my all-time #1 favorite Springsteen song period: 'Jungleland'.

    But now I view 'Jungleland' as 'New York City Serenade, Part II', and I like the original ('New York City Serenade, Part I') better.

    I've come to realize that Bruce is simply a "musical actor" and he has played the part of the 'Middle-Class Working American Stiff' well. But you're right, the "real" Bruce Springsteen is basically just a wealthy Communism propagandist.

    "Imagine all the people... blah, blah, blah."

  4. Stephen-this post got more than ten times as many page views as any other post on this blog!

    I guess the trick to traffic is using a Springsteen album title in your post name!
