I think this is a fair point, generally speaking, but I don't think you're being fair to Springsteen specifically.

Indeed.

Pay particular attention to the honorable representatives Waters and Frank in this clip, in destroying a federal housing regulator. It's really an outrage:

It's alright if talking out of your ass about something you don't know about is alright with you.

I think we should wait until the long term consequences of not promoting birth control in the third world plays out.

Springsteen is a conservative. He likes Walmart.

Sorry couldn't resist.

As long as Bruce never wears an outfit and hat like Pete's, I'm ok with that

I think he's pretty much right about Bush, I just hope he'll have just as critical an eye fixed on President Obama

Agreed.....what most Americans have been saying for several years. But, he makes it on the national news.

Too late!



That hat he wears on that '75 Hammersmith concert DVD is as ratty as ol' Pete's.

I loved Springsteen's ratty ol' hat. It worked when he was still a skinny little guy in the 70s.
