WASHINGTON - Rock star Bruce Springsteen endorsed Democratic Sen. Barack Obama for president Wednesday, saying "he speaks to the America I've envisioned in my music for the past 35 years."

This guy can’t sing and obviously not very smart either...Totally most overated entainer...but I guess his appeal needs a boost in Phili...so he endorses Obama...
Really? I don't remember Bruce singing about "God Damn America" nor signing about whitey spreading AIDS to the black man. Which album is that on?
An endorsement from Bruce Springsteen is the kiss of death.
Let’s hope he helps Obama as much as he did Kerry.
Springsteen has been a political moron for decades.
This is about the least surprising endorsement of 2008.
Yeah. "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."
"Hussein Obamas big mouth, small brain, condescending, America-hating, grandkid-baby-terminating, born-alive-infant-abandoning, America-hating-wife, kooky-moonbat-America-hating-pastor, racially-divisive, race-baiting, crotch-saluting, America-flag-disrespecting ... chickens ... coming home to roost ...!"
For an inside look at the real Hussein Obama and his elite hate America backers at San Francisco where Hussein Obama made his elitist remarks,
Lots of interesting comments on these threads.
Funny - I have never heard the Springsteen song “God Damn Amerikkka.”
The best thing about my divorce is that I no longer had to listen to Bruce Springsteen and pretend I liked it... Uggggh!
Never, ever got the whole Springsteen thing. From the first day I heard him until the present. If I hear a Springsteen song, I can’t change the channel fast enough. And really don’t like to look at him - think I’d rather watch a Micheal Jackson video. Really.
For which one?
As an intellectual, he's a highschool dropout.
And the fact that he's lived the pampered life of a multi-millionaire rock star since Richard Nixon was president pretty much shoots down the "everyman" pose.
I guess the field is too crowded to claim the "rich dope" title as his own.
No? Then why should I give a rip who this has-been nobody endorses?
You hear me, Brucey? I DON'T CARE...
I guess Bruce also agrees with obama that small town America is always bitter, even though he took their money to make him fabulously wealthy.
I think Bruce needs to have a cage match:
Bruce envisions a nation of draft dodging, adulterers.
He’s soooo into the black thing. He makes such a big deal about having a sub-mediocre black sax player in his band.
As the covers are pulled back off of Obama it is starting to reveal a lot of Shiite.
PA is a lot like NJ, where Bruce is still idolized (for whatever reason), so I would think this would help.
Well, that should just about wrap things up. Hillary and McCain may as well fold up the tent and go home!
That’s right, Boss. Let’s go back to the future.
Springsteen, although I do enjoy his music, has turned out to be such a wanker.
Bruce, please be quiet and sing.
Thanks so much.
So is Bruce jockeying for the front of the line to the whitey death camps or the back?
Bruce who? Nobody gives a damn about this idiot...lol. He hasn’t made a decent song since the 80s. What a washed up loser!
There, fixed it.
I do not remember the exact statement, but to paraphrase:
Rock stars stay up until 4 a.m. and sleep until noon. They know nothing about national events and politics and the only people dumber about these topics are those who look to them for political advice.
For the most part, entertainers live and work in a make-believe world which includes drugs, promiscuous sex and compensation which far, far exceeds what they contribute. It is only natural that they support candidates who live and work in the same kind of alternative universe of politics.
Never understood the fame he acheived, especially on the east coast.
He was always an over rated garage band leader
Wow! I’ve been staying up at night wondering who Bruce was going to endorse! Ha! Ha!
I don’t think we should be too hard on old Bruce,he has a talent for writing little pop ditties and has made the most of it.The farce here is that there are actually people who care what he thinks about politics and that the AP thinks it’s a story.
Brucie you idiot, you be the Boss, and you wait until after the New Jersey primary to endorse Barry, you be so big in New Jersey, you could have won it single handed for Uncle Jeremiah’s favorite nephew.
“””Who’s Bruce Springsteen? Does he have magical or superhuman powers? Does he have extensive domestic & foreign policy experience?””””
Come now.... you know darn well that the people at the Pentagon, the CIA, the commanders and generals of our military, the whole lot of the experienced people that make up the Defense Dept....all these people know absolutely NOTHING about foriegn policy.
You know that actors and musicians and 19yearold kids blogging from mom’s basement are the real foriegn policy experts. Look no farther than drunken snobbish hollywood actors for the way a country should be run.
Personally, I can go to the breakroom here at work and instantly become an expert on foriegn policy.
...and I think the sarc tag would be redundant....
He had a concert back in the mid 90's here in Philly, where he went on one of his rants and talked about "those God Damned Republicans"...
WOW! Never saw that one coming!!
“An endorsement from Bruce Springsteen is the kiss of death.” EXACTLY!
Coming up next: Jon Bon Jovi
And next Jon Bon Jovi will go for this crap.
Some hypocrite with a scratchy voice surrounded by excellent musicians.
Does he have magical or superhuman powers?
According to the huge throng of fanatics that chant “Bruce, Bruce, Bruce...” everywhere he goes plus the many millions collected over the years would conclude he must possess some special power of marketing wizardry.
Does he have extensive domestic & foreign policy experience?
Bruce has traveled the world displaying his band's talents (While he, again plays 3 chords and sings in a raspy, scratchy voice) so in his mind yes. Bruce has millions plus delusions of political grandeur, nothing can stop him.
Then why should I give a rip who this has-been nobody endorses?
The RIAA and media pundits compel you to listen and buy his crap, both musically plus politically or else. Big media will continue to shove his worthless crap down our throats till they deem the brainwashing sufficient enough. After that continue to prop up his boring and predictable "work" and political gems/endorsements till he is 6 feet under. After that, tributes and life stories of "the everyman" will bombard us till all the "hip" people are dead. This disease must be stopped to spare future generations.
You hear me, Brucey? I DON'T CARE...
“Hip” media pundits, legions of fanatics and politicians are deeply saddened by your resistance of “The Boss”.
I was wandering around in a daze, a drooling vegetable, unable to make up my own mind without the wisdom of a musician to guide me.
My wanderings are now over.
Thank You, Bruce Springsteen!!
“Rock stars - is there anything they don’t know?”
“For which one?”
Ask John Kerry.
Methinks Brucey was actually BORN IN THE USSR! BORN IN THE USSR!
