Obama's Closing Pitch: Jay-Z, Katy Perry, and Bruce Springsteen NOV 1, 2012
BY JOHN MCCORMACK Barack Obama will be calling on the star power of some celebrities during his final campaign push. The Obama campaign just announced in a press release:
CHICAGO Obama for America announced today that President Obama will spend the final day of the 2012 campaign in Madison, Wisconsin; Columbus, Ohio; and Des Moines, Iowa, ending his 2012 campaign in the state where his 2008 campaign began. The President will kick off the day in Madison, where he will be joined by Bruce Springsteen, who will perform and introduce the President. The President and Springsteen will then travel to Columbus, where they will be joined by JAY Z, who will follow Springsteen on stage and introduce the President after his performance. The President will end his final day of campaigning in Des Moines, where he will be joined by First Lady Michelle Obama following a third performance by Bruce Springsteen. The President and First Lady will end their last 2012 campaign swing in the state that launched the Presidents successful campaign four years ago before returning home to Chicago.
Obama will also campaign with pop singer Katy Perry in Milwaukee on Saturday.

Romney is on the trail talking about jobs and the economy. Barry is having rock concerts. Geeez. No wonder America is in trouble.
Can’t wait for the Iowa appearance...I’m betting its a wistful show by Barry
Something amiss with the message if crowds can be drawn in only bringing these idiots to play. I suspect this is a ruse for last minute registration and use of phony ballots.
Ask ol’ ‘Bruce’ where he was when Nashville flooded.
Bread and circus.
Oh, and also ask him where he was after the Alabama tornadoes. I don’t recall him even making a statement or holding a concert here.
He can kiss my ass, quite frankly. I don’t give a DAMN about his selective ‘causes’. And by ‘selective’......they must have something to do with ‘blue states’.
Eff YOU, Springsteen.
Used to be a big fan of Springsteen. Not so much anymore. Writing and singing songs against capitalism, while living in a $10 million mansion in Rumson, doesn’t work for me. Actively campaigning for someone who despises the very system that made Springsteen rich is unforgivable.
Bruce Springsteen was a closer in John Kerry’s final campaign week. It didn’t work.
100% on the button. These are the 1 per-centers who hypocritically champion the 99 per-centers.
If the socialist commander in chief does win re-election, he should first confiscate all the wealth of these hollywood/pop-singer hypocrites who obviously have way more money than need. But, he won’t do that. Some animals are more equal than others as it were.
Registration long gone for most states. Many republican secretaries of state to prevent phony ballots.
Is Katy Perry an American? If not, what the hell is she doing injecting herself into US politics?
Romney has to win at least 2 of these three states to be elected president: IA, WI, and OH. It’s very doubtful he could lose all three and get 270. All it takes is to cast a few hundred fraudulent votes in any two of them since its more or less a dead heat in all three states.
Katy Perry is an American. She was raised by evangelicals/pastor parents if you can believe that. Preachers don’t let your babies grow up to be pop-singers.
It usually end badly.
You mean like Jessica Simpson's Dad, who wound up being a flamer?
Just goes to show how these buddying singers need to feel “accepted” by the Hollywood crowd to climb up the career ladder.
Yeah, exactly. Something like that. Her mother was from Berkley, so that is probably the case. No offense intended to FREEPER Robin from Berkley.....
Too bad the election is not in March. Obama would be too busy filling out his NCAA bracket to campaign.
Other examples of this need to be accepted by otherwise decently inclined people, include:
Billy Ray Cyrus/ Molly Cyrus
Faith Hill/ Tim McGraw
countless others who become liberals to fit in.
