Springsteen, Jay-Z to campaign with Obama on final day

(CNN) – President Obama is bringing a heavy dose of star power with him on his final day on the campaign trail.

The campaign announced Thursday that musician Bruce Springsteen will perform at all three of the president's stops on Monday – Madison, Wisconsin; Columbus, Ohio; and Des Moines, Iowa. In addition, rapper Jay-Z will perform at the Columbus, Ohio stop.

First lady Michelle Obama will also join the president at his last stop in Des Moines, according to the campaign.

    Yes, Obama has rich celebrity friends, SO WHAT! They will be paying higher taxes than those 24 million who are struggling too. Doesn't matter if they are his friends or not.

    Who are Romney's friends? Who was he speaking to when he made the "47%" comment? His own staff explained that he was only trying to tailor his words for the crowd who was present.

    Who cares, Jayz is a tool and Springsteen is a has been. Obviously neither of them care about the direction are country is going.
