Bruce Springsteen to Campaign For Obama in Ohio, Iowa
National Journal ^ | 10/14/2012 | By Brian Resnick

Posted on 10/14/2012 7:50:55 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

President Obama's bringing in The Boss.

On Thursday, Bruce Springsteen will join former president Bill Clinton at an Obama rally in Parma, Ohio. The campaign announced later that the iconic New Jersey rocker would add another stop that same day in Ames, Iowa.

Springsteen is no stranger to Democratic rallies. The weekend before election day in 2008, he warmed up a crowd of 80,000 people at an Obama event in Cleveland. Four years prior, Springsteen took part in a similar rally for Sen. John Kerry. Tuesday will be his first campaign event in this election cycle.

"Bruce Springsteen’s values echo what the president and vice president stand for: hard work, fairness, integrity,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina told Ohio's The Plain Dealer. "His appearances will help with our get out the vote effort in these critical swing states and we are thrilled with his ongoing support."

Polls show the race in Ohio is tightening. As National Journal's Major Garrett reported on Wednesday, "The gap has closed from what was an 8 to 10 point Obama lead to just outside the margin of error." Consequently, Democrats are redoubling efforts there. Real Clear Politics's average of polls has Obama up by 1.3 points in the state.

In Iowa, Obama also has seen his lead shrink, according to polls.

No word on which songs Springsteen might be playing at either show -- or whether Clinton will join in on sax.

Clinton may decide to take a pass if the Administration continues to try and throw Hillary under the bus over the Benghazi Attack.

Just another flaming liberal for Obama. Maybe he’ll announce that he’s leaving his wife for his boyfriend.

Hey, Bruce, you are no longer a Jersey Boy but a wuss! Nothing American about you anymore other than you were born here.

Frankly I don't think he's that great of a singer. Miles better than Bob Dylan, but he still sounds like he's shouting all the time.

Never cared for Springsteen, but his political activism put him high on my celebrities-to-dislike list.

He views the world like he is living in a John Steinbeck novel.

For the life of me I cannot see/hear why this idiot is such a success.

He can’t sing and his music is mediocre at best.

Springsteen is so so as a performer.

Personally I think he was propped up most of his career by the media for the very reason that he was a leftist.

Springsteen's Homage to Pete Seeger
By Tom Moon

World Cafe, April 25, 2006 - On the new collection We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions, Bruce Springsteen honors the folk music tradition that has inspired many of his own compositions over the years. All the tracks on the new album are standards closely associated with folk icon Pete Seeger.

Springsteen assembled large ensemble of acoustic musicians to flavor the proceedings with everything from accordion to tuba. Rock critic Tom Moon talks with host David Dye about why he reacted so strongly and positively towards this latest offering by The Boss.

Earth Day, April 22, 1970:
"The nationwide event included opposition to the Vietnam War on the agenda, but this was thought to detract for the environmental message.
Pete Seeger was a keynote speaker and performer at the event held in Washington DC."

"[Pete] Seeger was antiwar during the period of the Nazi-Soviet Pact; pro-war after the Soviet Union was the ally of the United States; and anti-war during the years of the Cold War and Vietnam." --Ronald Radosh (former communist)
