[Bruce] Springsteen, Bill Clinton seek to swing Ohio for Obama
thehill.com ^ | 10/13/12 | Ben Geman

Posted on 10/13/2012 11:18:18 AM PDT by Justaham

Bruce Springsteen, whose music has been the soundtrack for President Obama’s campaign rallies, will join former President Bill Clinton at a pro-Obama event in the battleground state of Ohio next Thursday.

“Bruce Springsteen’s values echo what the President and Vice President stand for: hard work, fairness, integrity,” said Jim Messina, Obama’s campaign manager, in a statement Saturday morning about the Oct. 18 event in Parma, Ohio.

“His appearances will help with our get out the vote effort in these critical swing states and we are thrilled with his ongoing support,” Messina said ahead of the appearance in a state where polls show a tight race.

snort

“hard work” a zillion hours of golf? a billion in vacas for the family and him? sleeping while our ambassador is dragged through the streets?

integrity? lying about your birthplace, your grades, your parentage, your social security number

fairness for who? your political contributors?

what a freaking joke. of course Springsteen is an adulterer from way back

Good God is Springsteen a hack and a bore.

His music stinks, and in his tiny mind, he believes he is a character in a John Steinbeck novel.

Desperation. What happened to those 10 point leads? LOL!

You don’t bring in Springsteen and Clinton if you are winning.

He expects Bill to bank OH for him after he just threw Hillary under the bus?

Obama is desperate.

If Hillary is getting thrown under the bus, why would Bill Clinton do this?

Socialism (government) doesn’t work and is the problem.

And these dumb liberals want socialism. They are begging to be oppressed,starving slaves.

Although it is not true that all democrats are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are democrats

Because ALL democrats/socialists are the same , All of them , be it reporters, politicians whatever, to them their ideology comes first , the cause of socialism (slavery).

Obama = pelosi = carter = reid = Chavez = stalin = sprinsteen = raddatz etc.. They are all the same , they are the enemy of freedom.

That great family man, Bill Clinton; the devoted, faithful husband who is going to tell Buckeyes what a great President he was. Which will somehow translate to Vote for Obama? I must have missed something in the translation.

Dick Morris was on Fox and Friends last week saying that if 0bama does throw Hillary under the bus on the Bengahzi tragedy-turning-fiasco that Clinton may just endorse Romney. We’ll see how this plays out before next Thursday.

Wait so they are admitting that Ohio is in jeopardy..thanks libs for pointing that out to us..I think its obvious that Ohio is NOT in the bag for Obama..so they need to drag out Clinton to help him out..funny, for a guy who supposedly wants to move “Forward” he sure loves bringing up the past

Are voters in Ohio so shallow that they would vote for someone just because a “so-called” celebrity tells them to? Do they not have the ability to make their own decisions?

That pretty well covers it for me. I’ve never liked his work, and now he’s an airhead on the political stage as well.

I always found it funny how he tied himself to the region so folks would identify him and buy his garbage.

It has never ceased to amaze me the beautiful women that swoon when Bill Clinton walks by. “If only I could be ravished by a rapist and a guy so desperate for some action that he would risk his presidency by defiling the Oval Office and a girl thirty years his junior.”

All of them are perpetually locked in the 11th grade mode.

Bruce [”devout Catholic”] cheated on his young bride with his skank backup singer while he was married.

They’re a perfect team to ‘support’ Obeyme/Buttin.

Bruce Springsteen?

Didn't he have a band that played in a biker bar in Asbury Park back in the 1970s? I think he made two or three decent albums back then.

Is he still alive? If he is, he must be on Social Security and Medicare now.

Honestly, hell for me would include having to listen to Springsteen ‘music’. That pseudo blue collar crap makes me ill. He’s about as blue collar as Thurston Howell.

““Bruce Springsteen’s values echo what the President and Vice President stand for: hard work, fairness, integrity,”

Never worked a real ‘blue collar’ job in his life.
Hung around Asbury Park, drunk and stoned.
Slept and ate at friends’ houses because he had no money of his own.
His dad was not some ‘poor, down trodden factory worker’ as portrayed in his songs.
He was a happy bus driver.
He evaded the draft by showing up wearing makeup and a dress...and bragged about it in Rolling Stone back in the early 80s.
He cheated on his wife.

His “image” is a bald faced lie.

[and at one time, back when I was young and stupid, I worshiped him]

The Stone Pony [original demolished and replaced by a new ‘version’] was one of the best little mangy bars I’ve ever been to.

The old Boardwalk bar was incredible until it was torched for insurance money.

Asbury park was someplace I used to go to all the time for seriously cool yet melancholy ambience.

Now it’s a homo haven.

Madam Marie’s place is gone and so is the arcade on the boardwalk.
