Skip to comments.Meet the new Boss: ("how Bush ruined America")
Posted on 01/19/2009 5:06:15 AM PST by darkness78
It's Bruce Springsteen in utterly candid mode, discussing how Bush ruined America, and how he coped with recent tragedies of his own. But with a new president, the singer has a fresh optimism - hell, he even loves his local supermarket now

Is there a more over rated aging singer in America? I could never understand why Americans liked this guy. He never made it overseas anywhere outside of America that I know of.
Imho, Springsteen is a has been who was always overrated.
I promise you this will be the theme of the Left for the next four years - how it’s all Bush’s fault, because he ruined America so badly that the living god Obama couldn’t even fix it.
Bruce the douche.
...Same as the old boss ... we won’t get fooled again.
“They aint seen nuttin yet”
In perhaps the most widely televised bit of irony in the history of the transistor, Springsteen is going to sing: “Born in the USA” at Obama’s love fest.
BRUCE RESEARCHING THIS TOPIC!
liberal democrat atheists bringing you totalitarianism on a silver platter....but don’t lift the cover.
Most of all, Barack Hussien Obama will be given the same respect that HE and his comrades gave PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH.
Sh**. I stopped listening to this overrated yahoo a long long time ago. Springsteen has all the depth of puppy pee on a sidewalk in summertime.
I never liked him or his stupid music. He is a washed up has been looking for something to relight his failing career.
“Oh, those glory days, gone in the wink of an eye”
Met him once, at Dan Tana’a Restaurant in LA—for much of the early and mid-90s, Mr. Man of the People lived in a Beverly Hills mansion in the most exclusive part of BH.
Didn’t watch the Zerofest Sunday and won’t watch anything tomorrow.
BS"They opened up this big, beautiful supermarket near where we lived. Patti and I would go down, and I remember walking through the aisles - I hadn't been in one in a while - and I thought his place is spectacular. This place is... it's a fantasy land! And then I started to get into it. I started looking around and hmmm - the subtext in here is so heavy! It's like, 'Do people really want to shop in this store or do they just want to screw on the floor?'" [laughs]
MH Sometimes it's about buying groceries, you know...
BS "But maybe... [laughs] maybe there's this other thing going on. In the States they're sort of shameless, the bounty in them is overflowing. So the sexual subtext in the supermarket; well, perhaps, it's just twisted me."
MH It must be really hard to go shopping with you.
BS "I'm telling you, it's there! So I came home, said: 'Wow, the supermarket is fantastic, it's my new favourite place. And I'm going to write a song about it!' If there's a supermarket and all these things are there, well, there has to be a queen. And if you go there, of course there is. There's millions of them, so it's kind of a song about finding beauty where it's ignored or where it's passed by."
Wonder what Speen-sting is gonna think in the next 4 years. He along with this other pompous, ignorant minions will be bashing Bush to cover up the big suprise all of us will be facing in the near future! What a no-talent boor!
He went sharply downhill once “Born in the USA” came out. Irrelevant, uninteresting.
Oh, you mean the guy who tried to eviscerate the NYPD with a song titled “41 Shots” and then a short time later (after 9-11) was trying to promote himself as the NYPD’s biggest fan?
The “Boss” (in his own mind) has played the same music with different words for the past 30 years. Listen to the music of “Born in the USA” to “Glory Days”. See what I mean? The words of his songs have become more garbled over the years. That’s what happens to a drug-addled brain.
He's just another jackass mouthing off like he thinks he knows something!
Bruce needs to take an Ex-lax.
Please tell me what this guy is talking about.
He’s a perfect example of a mind destroyed by substance abuse.
If the success and survival of America depended on this idiot, we would all be screwed. Bruce “Scumbag” Springsteen. What a pantload.
Bruce just needs to shut up an sing....Oh, wait. I’ve heard him sing... Burce just needs to shut up.
It will be fun to watch the faithful sheep eat their own who stumble onto the truth that Obama’s making things worse.
Springsteen; as big a fake as Bambi is.
We have to put up with this asshat at the Super Bowl. Thank God for mute buttons.
Well, it's like this Bruce. When you have to buy the groceries yourself, you would rather not do it in dump. Wish I could afford your maids, cooks and butlers.
Bruce boy wouldn’t make a pimple on an elephants butt.
Unbelievable. Is there anyone anywhere more full of himself?
Recently I watched A Black and White Night on PBS ? and Springsteen couldn't carry Roy Orbison or James Burton's guitars. I really don't know much about elephants.
None of his songs have a catchy melody, or are well written or memorable. His histrionics on stage have always been boring and predictable. He's just another Peter Frampton-type product of the banal mid 70's rock scene. All hype and no substance. A flaming mediocrity, as it were.
The supreme irony is lost on this moron. He claims to be for the "little people" and sings about them but hasn't been in a grocery store for years.
He's such a useful idiot that he doesn't even know how idiotic his word are.
He just ought to shut up, enjoy his millions and be glad most folks can't put 2 and 2 together. I 'll never get the millionaire rockstar/actor/model types who are happy as clams to use the free market to peddle their mediocre crap. Then, when they have collected all the money from the proles, tell them they've got it to good and ought to vote for higher taxes and less freedom.
On my way to work every day I pass a string of budget motels. The ones that have the nightly price up in lights. One day last summer I saw the show rigs and buses for Jimmy Buffett's roadies and crew parked in one of the lots. I had to laugh. Pretty sure Buffett who is a notorious shill for socialism was kickin' it at The Four Seasons.
If only he could have said YES when Reagan invited him, that would have certainly made him a good musician!
Okay, somebody’s got to ask the question...what’s Bruce’s Freeper name?
This is what happens when you have been so successful and made millions...
... Now you can say what the fuck you think about politicians and don’t give a damn about what others have to say...
...and still, continue to make millions, sell records, get awards and gathering crowds at your concerts.
That’s definitely what we call to be a winner! (even if that hurts, but such is freedom of speech!)
“You don’t like my political views! I don’t care!”
You know, I’ve been in some nice supermarkets, but I’ve never particularly felt the urge to grab somebody and get down to it in the aisles. Bruce appears to have developed some unsound tendencies on the way up.
No, Bruce, those 'radicals' actually made things better, for a time, until they lost their way, and their message got lost in their desire to be liked by the media, and to grab more goodies for their own districts and States. If the Republicans had stayed on message, the Democrats would not have been able to make the gains they made in Congress in 2006 and 2008, and Obama wouldn't even be a footnote in history, much less President.
Bruce and his liberal friends are ecstatic, because it seems they have gotten all they wished for. We'll have to see how it plays out, and if the country will be any better off, or any safer, with them at the helm. If Obama fails, I wonder what his worshipers will do?
He's bashing Republicans for not giving people hope, and pushing the idea that Obama now offers that.
Of course, all the while the Republicans were been in office, for the 8 years of Reagan, the four of Bush 41, and the 8 of Bush 43, he's made millions of dollars, so I don't know what he has to complain about.
How about on a "bed" of lettuce?
Seriously, this shows that the Boss is completely frakked up mentally. He lives a cloistered life, Obama is elected and suddenly the world is new again.
Well, you are correct, I like Blinded by the Light too. I just looked it up. He did write it, but his version with his singing didn’t do well, and it was only when Manfred Mann’s Earth Band came out with its version was it a success. The article stated that this was the only song that he wrote that became #1.
“The article stated that this was the only song that he wrote that became #1.”
Dancing in the Dark - 1984
Brilliant Disguise - 1987
Tunnel of Love - 1987
Human Touch - 1992
Not to mention that 8 of his albums reached the top of the chart (including the last one “Magic”)
I know, you don’t like that, it’s painfull...but THE WHOLE WORLD AND AMERICA DO LOVE SPRINGSTEEN MUSIC
According to wikipedia (I know it is not always correct and has a leftist tint), none of these made #1.
p.s, the highest rated song that he performed according to another site was Hungry Heart which reached #5 in 1980. I think he mainly appeals to Americans, you rarely hear his songs played in Australia.
