Rocker Bruce Springsteen warmed up the crowd at President Obama's rally in Madison, Wisconsin earlier Monday. Traveling with the president aboard Air Force One, Springsteen will also play at Obama's final two events of the campaign - in Columbus, Ohio and Des Moines, Iowa.

      The only back obama has is his own. He certainly doesn't have the backs of the military, or others who work for our government ... ask the families of Brian Terry ... Ambassador Stevens ... and the brave Navy Seals, who gave their lives in duty to this country ... while obama used them for photo ops on his way to campaigning and fund raising.

        Dear Howard, Google Obama seeks to help Veterans. For years now he has been trying to better the plight of our returning Veterans. I think that is a lot better than the rhetoric veterans have received from past presidents.

        How do you feel about Bush there Howard? Over 4,400 Americans died so he could get "revenge" on Saddam Hussein and make his Oil/Defense cronies some extra $$ while driving the economy into the ground. Thankfully Barack Obama came a long to clean up his mess.

        @howard, Maybe you should get off fox news channel and read the what the real reporters are saying about what happened in bengahzi and that the response was appropriate.... OMG... you may actually have to read your news and find a few news sources!

        Really? What about the 6000+ brave men & women who have died in Afghanistan and Iraq? And the KIA Navy Seal who Romney tried to use in his campaign until his mother called him out on it? Goes both ways .....

Him and bon bon juvi all they care about is keeping their government subsidy for all their property. And this guys has the nerve to still sing , born in the usa?? Give me a break you 99.9% er.............

        @ kathi ... with an i ... clueless ...
        You say, I should see how the 'real' reporters are saying that obama's response to Benghazi was correct ... are you kidding ???
        Obama got caught lying and covering up what happened in Benghazi ... and, your reporters call that an appropriate response. It's fools like you who are enabling an empty suit, in an empty chair, to flush this great country down the tubes.

        As a woman, whose mother, grandmother AND great grandmother died from cancer, I have found it disappointing to have had to pay higher insurance rates, even though I am healthy, because of so-called pre-existing conditions in a family I was born into. The only time I have ever been in a hospital was once when I was 5 and had my tonsils taken out, and two more times when my boys were born. All not reasons to charge me more than the next person and I am 63 yrs. old.
        I'M FOR OBAMACARE – where insurance companies cannot charge me more than the next person for something I DO NOT SUFFER FROM PERSONALLY.

        in most states there is no preexisting conditions in insurance...the industry has been willing to waive preexisting conditions and etc for many years...as in all mandates the premiums must increase to cover the claims...even in a single payer program. NOT A REASON TO WANT OBAMA CARE...you dont make sense...as usual.

        as someone who is now underemployed I find it insulting that Congress went forward with a bad plan that few of them read or understood (Pelosi said we need to pass it so we can find out what's in it). My insurance rates just went UP in anticipation of the "Affordable" Care Act and I had to cancel my policy. Under this new legislation I will now have to pay a penalty for not having the "Affordable" care that I cannot afford. IRONIC, isn't it.

        I have lived in California, Florida, Colorado and Hawaii. I think I have a clue about insurance and pre-existing conditions I myself have never suffered from.
        As usual, Jerry still clings to his vision of swinging from vines as he escapes dinosaurs, playing Tarzan and Cheeta at the same time.

    Anyone who expected Obama to fix a broken economy in 4 years, heal international friendships that had been strained is unrealistic and frankly, uneducated.

    I was at the rally today and there were A LOT more than 2 people there. Barack Obama is way more of a leader than Mitt Romney. If you do any sort of investigating into the policies both men have proposed and supported you would know that Barack Obama has been fighting for affordable health care, sustainable job growth (not just temporary jobs created by expanding an unsustainable energy source, etc) and educational access for everyone. In a country like the USA you need a good reason to infringe on the rights of others (the right to love & marry, the right to choose your own form of healthcare including abortion) and Mitt Romney's reasons and the Republican Party's reasons are completely based on religious beliefs. I respect religion, but I do not condone forcing one group's beliefs onto the lives of an entire nation.

    Obama/Biden 2012 is really the only legitimate option in my eyes...

    November 5, 2012 at 3:28 pm |

      If it was a republican president there you democrats would expect him to fix the economy in 2 years not even 4 years. But I suppose he can take as long as he wants because he is the Messiah. Well, he took too long so he has to go. Romney/Ryan in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    CNN never mentions crowd size unless it helps Obama. I watched Romney last night in PA (switching between CNN and FOXNews). There were 20-30,000 people in the cold to see him. CNN showed a tight shot on Romney so you could not see how large the crowd was. FOX panned the large crowd. As Governor Sununu says: CNN is the Groupie Network.

    Read about the law suit that FoX news stated they are not obligated to tell the truth in reporting. Nothing Fox reports is unbiased or seeded to serve their insedious agenda to pormote the welthy agenda of white males.


    Here is an actual quote ffrom legal briefings. But, there are some who claim nothing is true, but what Fox News reports. Sad and sick. Just like the lies Mormons digest and give to others.

    "FOX appealed the case, and on February 14, 2003 the Florida Second District Court of Appeals unanimously overturned the settlement awarded to Akre. The Court held that Akre’s threat to report the station’s actions to the FCC did not deserve protection under Florida’s whistle blower statute, because Florida’s whistle blower law states that an employer must violate an adopted “law, rule, or regulation.” In a stunningly narrow interpretation of FCC rules, the Florida Appeals court claimed that the FCC policy against falsification of the news does not rise to the level of a “law, rule, or regulation,” it was simply a “policy.” Therefore, it is up to the station whether or not it wants to report honestly."

    "During their appeal, FOX asserted that there are no written rules against distorting news in the media. They argued that, under the First Amendment, broadcasters have the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on public airwaves. Fox attorneys did not dispute Akre’s claim that they pressured her to broadcast a false story, they simply maintained that it was their right to do so. After the appeal verdict WTVT general manager Bob Linger commented, “It’s vindication for WTVT, and we’re very pleased… It’s the case we’ve been making for two years. She never had a legal claim.”

    Fox supports Romney / Ryan because they will say or do anything to move their agenda forward. True slim and scum at it's core...

        Yo, Jerry, lets talk the TRUTH about the Republican Party trying to SUPRESS THE VOTE by any and every way they can think of. I don't hear you squeeking about that. Why? Are you down with winning by cheating voters of their right to vote?? I believe you are. You pounded your chest about morals, go ahead and explain this one. Or,......are you down with the whole 'cheating people out of voting thang'??

    I am a Canadian and an avid watcher of this election....I know I have no say but when I saw George Bush get elected twice, I jjust shook my head...as did most of us up here.The thing is, you Americans think the world revolves around you, and no one else deserves an opiniion. But we do watch, and care and take an interest. So this time, I see so much hate and anger in these comments that I read everyday, against a man I think (as most of my country and the world) see as a good man, a good but not perfect president. And I pray Barack Obama will be elected tomorrow. Romney says what he wants you to hear...an ambitious man, who has lied and changed his positions to suit his audience. Just offering my objective opinion.

        In the intense global economy in which we currently live in, I would think a Canadian's opinion is almost if not as valuable as an American's. You ignorant man, it makes me sick to think people still care ONLY about America and disregard what other countries think. Considering each day we wake up to a world in which mostly everything we buy, eat, etc. is in some way attached to some form of international trade/relationship, I would say other nation's opinions are VERY valuable.

        How in the hell can you support a man who can't even make up his own mind?? I find the timing of Hurricane Sandy extremely ironic. For a man to say in the Republican primaries that he would eliminate FEMA. Then, when FEMA under Obama was so brilliantly effective last week, he came out with a statement "I would never eliminate FEMA if I was president." He has time after time said one thing in the Republican primaries, and is now saying something completely different because he knows it isn't so popular of a position in the general election. he doesnt have the guts to even stand up for what he believes in. It is truly a case where he will say anything to get elected. And in my humble opinion, I deem him completely despicable.

    The Obama Administration is oppressing the American People by placing sanctions on them like they would Iran or another foreign country. Everywhere you look you find a restraint in government and the free market place. For people who have health care their insurance will go up thousands of dollars making it uncontrollable to afford for your family. They will get little health care for their dollars while Obama care will support and reward lower income families. Don’t despair, you will eventually become low income on Obama Care! You will not be able to refinance your home with all the new low rates! They don’t want you to! They do not want to make cheap loans with low interest rates because they lose money! Your equity is gone because they took it away through mismanagement of your country. Only a small few will be able to refinance or buy a home or pay for health care in Obama’s grand invisible plan for America!

    The republican machine is trying to steal the election by suppressing the vote. You only have to look at the shananigans going on in Ohio and Florida. But the people in the urban areas will not let the long lines stop them from voting. On another note, Mitt is the biggest flip flopper in history and he has no record of creating jobs. In fact he is the master of outsourcing. Can't wait till this clown disappears into the abiss come tomorrow. So long Wilbur your goose is cooked

      Nobody stopped anybody from voting. IF you are referring to EARLY voting and the rules are be in line by 7pm, and you show up at 705pm, come back on ELECTION DAY!

    This is what is going to happen Jerry. Romney will win, but all the Democrats will complain about voter suppression.

      We were complaining of voter suppression weeks ago when we found out Romney's son has stake in the voting machines used in Ohio and that Florida's Governor was limiting early voting & making laws creating difficulty voting. We will complain about it after too, but not because we lost! But because it should be illegal!

    as someone who is now underemployed I find it insulting that Congress went forward with a bad plan that few of them read or understood (Pelosi said we need to pass it so we can find out what's in it). My insurance rates just went UP in anticipation of the "Affordable" Care Act and I had to cancel my policy. Under this new legislation I will now have to pay a penalty for not having the "Affordable" care that I cannot afford. IRONIC, isn't it.

    I was searching CNN for the story about how CBS just released the unaired 60 Minutes interview with BO where he stated he did not know if Benghazi was a terrorist attack. Instead I found this hard hitting journalistic insight into the BO campaign. Really CNN? you guys are a Joke. No, there's no media bias. Candy Crowley owes Mitt Romney an apology (ref. debate).

    Romney's events were much larger. But we can't mention that because it's racist. Well, the one good thing about an Obama victory will that racism will well and truly be dead. After four years of liberals calling everyone who disagrees them a racist, the word doesn't have much meaning anymore anyway. If a black man gets reelected to be president it will finally prove that racism is no longer a problem in this country and calling someone a racist will have the same stigma of actually being a racist back when such people existed. And shame on you if you disagree with me.

    I’m not for Obama Care; I don’t want to pay an extra 15% tax for selling my house when I move. Also I have been working since I was 14 years old on the farm then to the Army to serve in Desert Storm. I lost my job one time and I got another one. I took a lower paying job so I could pay my bills then worked my way up again. You can't buy my vote with Welfare or health care that my children will have to pay for. I want my children to have a better life not be burdened with my debt.

    As an outsider, i'm fascinated by American Politics. It almost seems like the country is sinking to the lowest common denominator of fear and panic. How else can you explain 50% of the population even willing to consider a Mitt Romney, the unknown quantity and quality? When I travel and speak to a broad spectrum of people, everyone is astounded that so many expected the economoy to bounce back so quickly after a near depression. The world economy has changed, mostly for the worst, but America is still in a strong favourable position if you are willing to make the sacrifice and commitment necessary for improvement. The easy way or pretty way does not always lead to the promised land.

    The Democrats are worried about Pennsylvania. They set up a black panther guard in front of a polling place, kicked out the GOP monitors, and painted a mural of Obama, all at 1 place.

    Lucky for Obama the boss was doing a gig at the Holiday Inn across the street and brought the entire audience (19) and road crew (12) with him to this event. He did surpass the Stevie Wonder concert turnout of about 9 people including Joe Biden playing the glockenspiel and spoons.
