With two days to go before the election, Barack Obama spoke with messianic zeal before an estimated 80,000 people in Cleveland this afternoon who were drawn by a free acoustic concert by Bruce Springsteen.
AFP reports Obama riffed on Springsteen's closing song, The Rising, when he took the stage:
"A rising is coming," Obama said after Springsteen exclaimed to deafening cheers: "I want my country back, I want my dream back, I want my America back!"
The Rising was written about the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 and was the title song of Springsteen's cathartic album released the year after the attacks. Obama and Springsteen's use of the song at Obama's political rallies perverts the song to equate the Bush presidency with the 9/11 attacks.
Obama, equating his presidency as "a rising" is treading on blasphemous territory, territory he knows well from Rev. Wright and Father Pfleger.
Obama's cry he wants his America back is laughable, unless he's talking about the America that his wife suddenly became proud of earlier this year when Obama's victory was more assured.
The almighty O wouldn’t risk having a rally without a rock star. What a wooosie.
This man makes me physically ill.
a Disappointing rally. See my report here:
Thanks, all. :-)
Today, his country. Tomorrow, the world.
His America never existed - he will create an America in his image ....
I’m sick and tired of Springsteen. He needs to be deported to Afghanistan so the Taliban can bang his ass.
Hey, Barry, your America is 90 miles south of Key West.
“A rising is coming,” Obama said after Springsteen exclaimed to deafening cheers: “I want my country back, I want my dream back, I want my America back!”
Coming from someone who has far less an American experience than any other candidate in history, this is laughable...I’m waiting for the punchline...his country? He knows nothing about us.
I want MY America back. I fear it is too late and we are doomed.
We don’t have Obamas america ,he needs to move to Kenya and get his kind of america and leave mine alone.
You may want to rephrase that...
BO, your country is spelled K-E-N-Y-A. Now carry your butt back there.
What America is he talking about?
The Jim Crow America?
Springsteen is a jerk ... wrote too many hate America songs.
Has the dip shown the masses the “scars” on his palms yet?
He wants his America back? Which one, the one he wants to change?
The audacity and hypocrisy of this charlatan is limitless...
“I want my country back, I want my dream back, I want my America back!”
Obamination...the “country” you describe has never existed, and God willing never will.
