BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN RECALLS LIFE ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL [Millionaire Liberal Crap]
Ultimate Classic Rock.com ^ | 2/8/13 | Dave Lifton

Tonight (Feb. 8), Bruce Springsteen will receive the MusiCares’ 2013 Person of the Year award for his history of philanthropic and political works. In a new interview, Springsteen discuss his longtime commitment to activism, and how it has influenced his own work.

Once unwilling to speak his mind on the issues of the day, Springsteen has now played an active role in the last three presidental elections. He finds performing at a political rally to be a different challenge than a sold-out arena, but possibly more rewarding.

“I go to Ohio with Jay-Z,” he told Robert Santelli, the Executive Director of the Grammy Museum. “So Jay-Z’s audience is there, my audience is there, and then there is a purely political audience that’s there. So you’re playing to an enormous cross section of people, including children…You need to communicate in a very fresh and direct way. For all three times I’ve helped out on a campaign, that’s what I enjoyed the most.”

The main difference, he says, is that, at a concert, the messages are in the subtext, but on the campaign trial, they are pushed to the forefront by the very nature of the occasion.

“Every line and every bit of your language is shaded towards the things people are fighting for and caring about,” he continued. “It’s wonderful to hear your music come to life in that context. It’s been an honor to have that experience. If you’re lucky, you get the chance to just nudge the country in this direction, or that. It was the reason why I wrote a lot of those songs.”

Ah yes, the stinking draft dodger that hid in Canada and had to have Carter give him amnesty . . . that punk . . . the same punk that is called the “boss” because he rolls up his sleeves for photo ops . . . his shirt with the rolled up sleeves to him is a costume . . . to all of us who have to roll up our sleeves, we call it our clothes.

He’s a worthless anti-American traitor . . . too good to fight for his country, but good enough to drain money away from America to become a millionaire.

Makes me sick to see and hear him.

"for his history of philanthropic and political works."

Sorry but giving away other people's money isn't philanthropy.

If given the choice between Cher and Springsteen, I am pretty certain I would rather listen to “Dark Lady” and “Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves” over any garbage produced by this creep.

Political works such as calling himself a farmer so he can avoid paying thousands in property taxes? He ought to get the Warren Buffett Hypocrisy Award.

And to my ears, the man can barely carry a tune. I heard--interminably it seems--his Christmas song, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," and thought it was the worst rendition of that song I had ever heard.
