Bruce Springsteen endorses Obama for president

Oh, well, that seals the deal for me. Of course I'm going to vote for whoever Bruce Springsteen votes for cause he can play a guitar. Give me a fucking break. Who cares.

Rock star Bruce Springsteen endorsed Democratic Sen. Barack Obama for president Wednesday, saying "he speaks to the America I've envisioned in my music for the past 35 years."

But what if you listen to Death Metal?

In a letter addressed to friends and fans posted his Web site, Springsteen said he believes Obama is the best candidate to undo "the terrible damage done over the past eight years."

It's going to take longer than one president to undo the damage done over the past eight years. Thinking the damage is solely the fault of the current administration (while a lot of it does fall on their shoulders) is narrow-minded. It would surprise most Americans to find out that, no, we actually don't control the fate of the world.

"He has the depth, the reflectiveness, and the resilience to be our next president," the letter said. "He speaks to the America I've envisioned in my music for the past 35 years, a generous nation with a citizenry willing to tackle nuanced and complex problems, a country that's interested in its collective destiny and in the potential of its gathered spirit. A place where '...nobody crowds you, and nobody goes it alone.' "

Nobody crowds you. He's from New Jersey right? He's lost his mind, it's crowded as all hell here. I guess you get a different view when you make a few hundred million dollars. Guess that kind of puts you in another league than most of us "average" Americans. So then why should we give two shits who you're voting for?

The bard of New Jersey is known for his lyrics about the struggles of working-class Americans, particularly in the economically ravaged factory towns of the Northeast.

How's that struggle going for you Mr. Moneypants. If I sound bitter it's only because I'm bitter.

You got that right! Mad Man.
Bruce has got his head up his ass.
he's so old school and like you said, he just out of touch.
anybody who needs a old rock star to tell you who to vote for...should just stay home and wonder why they can't formulate an opinion of their own.
