And might I add that this has always been their ambition. The fans of U2 have often been far more pretentious than the band.

As for me, I like Obama. I like NLOTH. I like the "middle", if you will. So I guess for me the shoe fits.

I think you're taking U2's music a little too seriously. Just enjoy it.

The last thing I want U2 singing about is Obama.

I'd love to debate this fascinating issue but alas have not listened to the new album.

That said, U2 are not the be all and end all of rock and roll. I know, hard to believe, but true.

I'd like to hear Nick Cave's thoughts on Obama. Why didn't he address it in his recent (American-influenced) album? Instead singing about Lazarus reincarnated as a bum in New York or something. Sheesh.

Nope, you are not alone. I also like the entire album.

See, he was doing this as far back as War.
I agree.....and since then, there has been a "cease fire" in Northern Ireland for over a decade.

Walt Disney,

What do you want Bono to sing about? President Obama is going to close Gitmo by the end of this year. Thank God. And he will be pulling our military out of a country, Mr. Bush forced us to invade under false pretense.
