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.

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)

Bruce Springsteen and his signature song sum up the irony of it all. Bruce Springsteen is a multimillionaire who masquerades as a working man, Obama never born in the USA masquerading as a natural born duly elected American president.

Folks, put your memory caps on. Remember when an endorsement from Bill Clinton was radioactive and useless. Clinton is not going to save Obama, and....Bruce Springsteen is worth zero impact in producing votes and support for Obama!!! End of story!!!

I saw Woody Guthrie’s display at the R&R hall of fame and he was a card carrying communist.
He and Pete wrote good songs but were deep red commies

I was working at the Bush campaign headquarters in Columbus in 2004. GWB was in town for the final leg of the campaign. His nephew stopped by and media was everywhere. Springsteen was also in town for Kerry. A reporter asked me some questions and one of them was “what do you think about the “boss” concert tonight for Kerry?” I replied, “I can’t imagine what a has been rockstar could possibly say that would have an impact on a presidential election.” The interview made the evening news!

Worst song of all time — Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by Bruce Springsteen. Terrible, horrible, painful, causes the dogs to whimper, whine and howl. Should be used to torture terrorists and our enemies.

This song really shows how crappy a singer Bruce is. The guy can’t hold a tune if his life depended on it. He is probably more of a lyricist. But damn, he can’t sing!

I will never ever understand this man’s appeal or success. First time I heard a Springsteen song I thought it was a joke, like someone was spoofing Dylan. And “Born in the USA” sounds like a ditty my son made up while he was alone in the tub with his army men. So he can’t sing, can’t compose, and now he’s proven he can’t think or reason.

THAT and Grandma Got run over by a reindeer are two songs that caused me no to enjoy the 24/7 Christmas Music radio stations. You can throw in that Thanksgiving Song, too.

I would love to meet this phoney hypocrite’s tax accountant and see how much he saves Brucie on taxes. And his music suck I only like about three of his tunes like “Glory Days” otherwise he is a crashing bore!!

When is Brucie going to send a $20 million check to the Treasury for the Federales to squander on ObamaBucks and ObamaPhones

How is it that all the rockers from the 1960’s and 70’s are still so friggin’ stupid when it comes to politics.

Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young are still acting as though it is 1969 and haven’t changed their idiotic beliefs one wit.

Paul McCartney, one of my musical heros of all time, is an absolute ass-clown when it comes to politics and real life.

Lord Above, don’t ANY of these guys mature as they get older or is it all the pot-smoking that stunts their brains??
