Whether you clocked in or not as a volunteer with the Obama campaign over the past few days, turns out The Boss will see you after all. Despite early confusion over the hastily arranged campaign event, scheduled for this afternoon on the Parkway, officials said yesterday that Bruce Springsteen's get-out-the-vote concert would be open to any and all. --snip-- Deputy Police Commissioner Stephen Johnson said the cash-strapped department would staff the event with a team of civil affairs and traffic officers already scheduled to work today. Overtime shifts, he said, would be kept to a minimum.

“The Boss”? lol. What an ass.
He’s not my Boss - he don’t sign my paychecks!
Bring plenty of disinfectant!
People will show up for the music and not the BS. Those that put this kind of event on start to believe their leader is a god because all the people come to see him. In acuality, the people come for the entertainment.
Where is Palin today?? Haven’t seen anything scheduled for her. She needs to have more airtime.
Obama has been using this trick repeatedly, it would seem: Arranging a rock concert, and then stepping on stage at the height of the madness.
He did it on the river bank in Oregon. He did it in Berlin. And here he is again, doing it in Philly.
Then the press have their cameras all set up to catch the Messiah in front of a huge, cheering crowd.
Would anyone come if he didn’t stage the concert first? Sarah Palin was drawing huge crowds without having a rock band come on first.
It’s the age of celebrity—people who are celebrated for being celebrities, no one knows quite why, except that they are constantly on the covers of US and People and Time.
Only this guy isn’t just an empty suit—he’s a Muslim Communist America hater. And he won’t just have fifteen minutes of fame, he’ll have four years if he gets his way, or maybe eight, or maybe President For Life, the thing bill clinton wanted but never quite managed to achieve.
She’s in Carson, California.
With all of the violence and unrest in Philly, our tax dollars and resources are being wasted on a political stunt for Obambi.
Bread and circuses.
The Boss is one of the most over rated singers ever. His songs sound like a angst ridden 15 year. Where anyone got the idea he was/is a blue collar poet is beyond me.
Sorry to burst the bubble of those who likes the guy, but have you ever really listened to that tripe?
Haven’t heard anything today. Sure hope she gets out and talks to the country. This lady is refreshing....but then again I’m gettin old.
I can’t stand his voice - and he’s too ugly to watch..... never been a fan of his.
I heard that attendees are being warned not to fall for anyone offering them valet parking. It’s a scam to steal cars from fools and idiots who support Obama (peace be upon him) and/or think Loose Mainspring is worth listening to.
Give me Bob Segar over springsteen any day.
Live blog form Sarah’s CA event today.
Back out of any more $650,000 jumping horse deals for your precious spawn?
Two Americas, right Bruce (John Edwards must be your friend too)... the multi-millionaire "common" man... not. You and your family seem to be doing pretty good... do us a favor and shut your pie hole you freaking hypocrite.
You got that right.
