Maybe it was a mis-translation. I haven’t been able to understand a word he’s said in years.

He’s the Obama of 60’s music. No talent with empty words and a press that worshiped him.

He just said that to keep the hippies at the concert away from the polls. If they already think it’s in the bag they will stay home and smoke more dope instead of voting.

It’s just a theory, and it’s mine, and I don’t even believe it myself.

He’s a Christian and knows better.

I read somewhere that if you went to Dylans house you would think Dylan himself trespassed
onto the property to dig though trash. Say no to drugs.

He is a great example of the “Talentless Left”. I've used his annoying voice for years to teach my family what passes for talent in our media. Just parrot Socialism and you can sing like a strangled pig.

We have watched for four years in amazement and in fact have had many hearty laughs at the left’s incredible ridiculousness. But we ain’t seen nothing compared to tomorrow night folks. They’re spin will be the funniest sh*t I have seen in a long time.

Switching gears....Don’t you just love how the left talks bout racism crying that we should all be one...but look at the constant parsing of races and demographics and all those silly ass shows Soledad O’Brien does about race. Give it a rest! I thought race didn’t matter, why are you constant;y harping on it?

Huh... Well, this is certainly unexpected and disappointing from Dylan.
I’ll be seeing him in concert in 2 weeks and I’ll be sure to yell, “Ubama in a landslisde”, sometime during his set.
Probably during ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’.

Made the prediction while blowing the wind, how sad he has so much gas that he passed obama.

Just look how well the left conviced us that this guy was a guru in the 60’s and a legend today. Much like they convinced us that the community organizer and chief was the messiah.

Dunno. But it’s not long since he had a concert in Israel, in the face of hysteria from the left.

Most of the people in the entertainment industry are liberals. Dylan is no exception but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy his songs. He’s older than dirt and has been on constant tour for ever but not because he has to. It’s just what he does. Still one of the greatest song writers of all time. Just got his politics wrong compared to mine.

Hey, you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows, and you don’t need a washed up aged rock star to know which way the election goes.

Maybe he’s writing a new song:

“Obama in a landslide
Tea Party gone and died
Biden talking trannies
Ryan killing grannies ...”

Hey, where are all the “Dylan’s a conservative” Freepers? I cited Dylan singing at Clinton’s inauguration as proof he’s a diehard lib, but oh no, all the Dylan-lovers on the forum assured themselves, Ole Bob’s really a conservative.
