Messianic Obama in Cleveland: "A Rising is Coming...I Want My America Back!"
Sunday, November 2, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 11/02/2008 4:16:19 PM PST by kristinn

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.

I’m sick and tired of Springsteen. He needs to be deported to Afghanistan so the Taliban can bang his ass.

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 wonder what hang-out and toke corner of what city he may think of, when he thinks of his America.

Obama wants his America back? His America never existed. He’s had no use for America, going back to his mom and dad. He is the most abysmal fake ever to run for President. Bill Clinton is a man of honor and character next to Barack Obama. Obama’s campaign has been one long lie.

It would be interesting to know how many showed to see Springsteen and how many showed to see the jackass “messiah.” As far as I know, the “messiah” doesn’t have any hits.

If a person has to have a rock star to draw a crowd .. then there isn’t much substance there.

Free concerts .. free booze .. free cigarettes .. looks more like BRIBERY TO ME.

Can’t see nothin’ in front of me
Can’t see nothin’ coming up behind
I make my way through this darkness
I can’t feel nothing but this chain that binds me
Lost track of how far I’ve gone
How far I’ve gone, how high I’ve climbed
On my back’s a sixty pound stone
On my shoulder a half mile of line

Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight

Left the house this morning
Bells ringing filled the air
Wearin’ the cross of my calling
On wheels of fire I come rollin’ down here

Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight

Li,li, li,li,li,li, li,li,li

There’s spirits above and behind me
Faces gone black, eyes burnin’ bright
May their precious blood bind me
Lord, as I stand before your fiery light

Li,li, li,li,li,li, li,li,li

I see you Mary in the garden
In the garden of a thousand sighs
There’s holy pictures of our children
Dancin’ in a sky filled with light
May I feel your arms around me
May I feel your blood mix with mine
A dream of life comes to me
Like a catfish dancin’ on the end of my line

Sky of blackness and sorrow (a dream of life)
Sky of love, sky of tears (a dream of life)
Sky of glory and sadness (a dream of life)
Sky of mercy, sky of fear (a dream of life)
Sky of memory and shadow (a dream of life)
Your burnin’ wind fills my arms tonight
Sky of longing and emptiness (a dream of life)
Sky of fullness, sky of blessed life

Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight

Li,li, li,li,li,li, li,li,li

Another one of the aging rock stars who can sing and play great, but when interviewed, sound illiterate.

When I've seen them on the late-night shows...Bruce Springsteen, Greg Allman, Joe Walsh, Jackson Browne, Ozzy, etc...maybe they showed up drunk and stoned, but they couldn't string two sentences together.

Call it what you will, but I believe there's going to be a large sector of white Obama voters who, in the privacy of the voting booth, will decide that they really don't like arrogant black men threatening them.
