...turned away from the gushing, pissing themselves, obama fans in attendance at a free event....don't have to ....can pay my way and don't want to because of the political differences I hold with your kind.
I was so pleased with Mitt last evening that I gave another good chunk to his cause 1st thing this morning.

ever since the "Boss" went hard left politically in his concerts, most conservative fans have left...Don't need an entertainer to be spouting politics, just like we don't need politicians making movies or writing songs (Michael Mann excepted)

Seriously? Wasn't there big-name FREE entertainment when Romney and Ryan had a rally at Augusta Expoland a couple of weeks ago? Let's stop pointing fingers, please.

Obama is a failure, I am sure people will go to a free concert regardless of who they vote for, however 47 percent of americans don't pay taxes and get refunds as well, so the deomcratic base does love free stuff. Thankfully we only have 3 months and a few days until Obama walks out of the white house with his bags packed. That will be a great day but we still have a long road ahead of us turning this second term of Carter around and making america stronger.

The difference is simple --

It was a ROMNEY and RYAN rally, with entertainment. This is a free SPRINGSTEEN concert with Tim Kaine piggy-backing. We've all witnessed the likes of Tim Kaine (and the millions of deficit spending left behind)-- no one would go see that again.

I really hope the GOP keeps pushing the 47% comment. It really is not doing the GOP any favors. Do you have a % of the 47% that are democrats? Are all the senior citizens that collect their Social Security democrat? How about the troops currently fighting? Are all the troops democrat? How about working poor? All democrat? You really can't choose which citizens only apply to the 47% and insist they are lazy. But if you must, please keep pushing the comment.

Well first off I am a veteran and a senior citizen and yes alot of people out there are lazy. The great part about it is that even the lazy people don't think they are lazy. I have worked ever since I was 13 years old and lot more hours than you young folks do today. I wish 80 hours a week would put food on the table back then. You young people want everything for free just more and more handouts.

Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better.

Seriously, can anyone name one good thing this guy's done for America?

I need not explain how he and his corrupt guttertrash Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.

We need real jobs, not McWalmart jobs.

We also don't need the Obama Administration continuing on it's current path to oblivion without having to worry about re-election. This would be dangerous to our constitution's survival and our pocketbooks.

Romney is owned by the same international bankers as Obama destroying America from overseas.

However by hittig the reset button on the corrupt, power crazed, Obama administration it gives more Americans time to wake up to what is presently happening to America.

Obama may be likeable but he is incompetent.

In some aspects Obama is right when he says ((("you didn't build/create that, government did.")))

Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years and imagine what he can do with 8:

- Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))

-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can now be disappeared without a jury

- Out of control (((Crony Capitalism))) where government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not the free market eg. Solyndra, GM, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters

-(((Skyrocketing Unemployment and Outsourcing)))-The idea that welfare checks/EBT cards are paychecks

-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant

- Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.

-(((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism

-(((Trickle Down Government))) The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way

-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection

- A (((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps

-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans setting up for social conflict right before the 2012 election

-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)

-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional

-(((No Plan/ or Budget to Fix Anything going forward if he is re-elected )))-always says what you want to hear, then does the exact opposite hoping you''ll forget by the next speech -(((Sociopathic Liar)))

-(((Obamaphone)))-Massive expansion of this program for his dependant voting base

-(((Unlimited QE3 leading to hyperinflation/ monopoly money))) Dollar is rapidly losing purchasing power resulting in skyrocketing food and GAS PRICES (especially for "green gas" in CA)

-(((Needed a tainted Creepy Crawley moderator to hold his hand during the second debate))) who helped him dodge hard questions he couldn't answer -a (((weak affirmative action President)))

- My favorite (((Legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not once addressing true immigration reform

- The list goes on.

Is this change you can believe in? Is this what you really want another 4 years of?

As Donald Trump would say: Obama you're fired:



Too bad Ron Paul chickened out.

I thank you for your sevice to the country. You might want to get out a little more if you think all young people are lazy and want handouts. Some of the younger people are the ones that are protecting you and the country at this minute. Were you looking for a handout when you was protecting and serving your country? Were you lazy? The sad part is you ignore the fact that you are one of the 47% that Romney was pointing his finger at.

We don't need politicians making movies, like Clint Eastwood, Chuck Norris, Fred Thompson, or Arnold Schwarzenegger, or writing songs like John Rich, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock or Ricky Scaggs?
They are all equally free to express their opinions, its only that they have a platform most of us do not share.
