Skip to comments.Bruce Springsteen: George W Bush ruined lives

The Born to Run singer said that the US was now "suffering the consequences" of eight years of rule by a "very radical group of people" who had attempted to undermine the country's democratic values.
Describing President Bush's period in power as a "nightmare" for most Americans, the songwriter said: "We had a historically blind administration who didn't take consideration of the past; thousands of thousands of people died, lives were ruined and terrible, terrible things occurred because there was no sense of real history, no sense that the past is living and real."
In a rare interview, Springsteen said that President-Elect Barack Obama's election represented the triumph of the values and spirit he had attempted to capture in his music.
"His election was an incredible moment for someone who seemed to carry... enormous parts of American history with him. Someone who can reckon with the past, who can live with the past in the present, and move towards the future that's fabulous," he told Observer Music Monthly, in an article to be published on Sunday.
"And for the country to recognise that was a wonderful moment. This place we've been talking about, singing about ... it's alive. It isn't dead. It exists."

You ruined my ears, ‘Boss’. STFU.
I wonder if Brucie has himself an Islamoterrorist boyfriend. He sure is upset at President Bush.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
Were it not for a push by John Hammond, Bruce would still be selling surfboards and bathing suits in Belmar.
This overrated hack ruined my time...A Flock of Seagulls has more talent that him.
Boss — Since you were “Born to Run”, why don’t you just run away and STFO. Your political views are not shared by everyone.
Who gives a flyin’ fish fart what Springstein thinks. He is so yesterday!
The acronym is ICMFCL
We must remember to hold him accountable when AlQaida launches its next attack.
Try living on my my paycheck week to week and tell me how to live my life, Mr. working class hero...
I hope Hoss ordered new, wider checks, so he will have room to write out the dollar amount that he will be paying the IRS.
Democratic values? I could write about you and the rest of the degenerates in your crowd and how your immoral drug use, sexuality, homosexuality, vast and corrupt liberalism has ruined lives. However, because I am an unknown, no one would print it or listen. Clown, do you think that is democratic?
More like Useless Idiot.
John Hammond should be dug up and waterboarded.
