Posted on 10/13/2012 11:37:28 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper
The Obama campaign is looking for a boost from celebrities in the closing weeks of the election, announcing Saturday that Bruce Springsteen will appear in battleground Ohio with President Bill Clinton and releasing an ad narrated by Morgan Freeman.
Mr. Clinton, whom the Obama campaign touts in a press release as one of the most popular political leaders in the country, and Mr. Springsteen will headline a rally in Parma, Ohio, next Thursday.

Wait a minute! I thought the Clinton’s were fighting with Obama?
Springsteen is shilling for Obama? After November, old Bruce is going to have to change his nickname to THE LOSS.
I don’t think it will help him. Springsteen is a has-been. Freeman has issues regarding his affair with his step-granddaughter and other affairs with White women. Clinton might help some but I don’t think he is really motivated at this time.
i predict clinton will bugger out.
If Ohioans want Socialism so be it. If however, Ohioans want FREEDOM, it is theirs. Ohio should think of their nation as well; Americans want freedom....Obama has stopped any further investigation into Fast & Furious and he is lying about the Benghazi attack that Killed Four Americans not to mention the lives lost almost hourly in Afghanistan....is this the kind of leadership Americans want? He has sent our warriors into Africa....has anyone heard about that event? Panetta sent soldiers to Jordan last week......Obama is hardly a leader, he has proven that....why would anyone want this wuss of a man in their White House...I am embarrassed by him and his wife for their lack of understanding of their country or love for America. NO TO OBAMA!
Let me assure you of one thing from personal experience: crowds can be raised with celebrities, entertainers, venues, props (like AF1, Marine One, and motorcades), etc. that don’t necessarily equate to voters and/or turnout. You can take this to the bsnk!
Seems to me that bringing out Billy was the kiss of death to many a campaign.
Bruce Springsteen and taxes...the 1% baby!
Let us hope.
Freeman? Springsteen? Why would one pay any attention to their political views any more than one would to tap dancers like Savion Glover or magicians like David Copperfield?
Strange world where entertainers are influential with the MSMerde regarding Presidential elections. Of course the press likes entertainers because they provides a connection between the MSM candidates and the shallowness of much of the electorate/.
I think you are right about Clinton. For the past several elections he has been the kiss of death from Wisconsin to Hawaii.
Obama toss’s Hillary under the bus and Bubba appears with him I wouldn’t want to have to cash the check Obama is writing to Bubba.It must be a big one.
Spring Bean is a has been. His last good album was in 1984(Born in the USA). Since then he has been trying to be a Pete Seegar, Woodie Guthrie and Phil Ochs wannabe
I was a big fan for years.....
I microwaved all my Springsteen CDs and will remember not any of his songs again.
Dead to me.
Go to hell.
Romnney is going to win.
