Maybe I'm too cynical, but, will these folks be playing it straight or will they turn it into an Obama campaign commercial?

ANYTHING to keep Benghazi out of the news in the days before the election.

Wait a minute. I thought the liberals told us that only the Red Cross was qualified to help the hurricane victims! Wasn’t that their justification for criticizing Romney’s efforts to collect canned goods?

I think you’d be a fool to expect it to be anything but a probama rally.

I wonder from where this concert will be broadcast? NBC studios or somewhere in a live venue in New York?

I won’t watch. I have better things to do and I don’t like Springsteen’s politics. Maybe Christie can join him on stage to complete his fawning?

Of course it’ll be a campaign event for the Marxist, but who cares? The North East is already for the Marxist.

I think most folks are tired of hearing about obama’s new best GF Sandy.

We were all involved with NYC during 911 and then what did most do afterward? Trashed and abandoned GWB, because the lamestream hated him! Those freaks still think he and SCOTUS swiped election 2000 from algore.

Now the same lamestream is covering up Benghazi! Refusing to report on it. Only FoxNews is covering Benghazi!!!!

Government isn’t the answer and libtard politics are not for us. We’re voting the Marxist OUT!

This concert isn’t going to change any minds. At best, it might prompt some of the morons to vote.

All left wing singers. Billy Joel is the least political of the bunch but he has become friends with Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi.

If this were mainstream it would have a wider variety and right leaning musicians like Meatloaf, John Rich and Sammy Hagar. Instead it is ripe for Obama propaganda with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Jon Bon Jovi, Sting, Christina Aguilera and Billy Joel.
