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.

    aaaahhhhhhh... how nice that Obama ends his last campaign with the people that really matter to him, the Hollywood elite. Too bad he couldn't spend it with the 24 millions he's kept unemployed for years, or the families of the Benghazi dead that he helped get killed.

    America, as we head to the polls on November 6th, PLEASE, PLEASE lets keep in mind that we are NOT electing a rock star or a rock star wannabe. America is electing a president that will hopefully and diligently guide our destiny for the next four years.

    As we all know, performers and performer wannabes live in a make believe world. Springsteen, Jay Z and Mr. Obama are living in Cinderella Land.

    Don't be fooled and most of all, don't allow no one to intimidate YOU! Vote your heart, vote your conscience!!!

    That's too bad. He could be doing more good, if he continued to help raise money for the storm victims.

    Makes sense...a guy who can't sing tours with a guy who can't run a country.

    I am shocked by the evangelical comments coming from Iowa. If they are real believers in the bible, then then holding his position on Birth control and not being pro-life against the President is hypocritical. We have a choice. Any believer knows that we have a choice. Thats all he is saying. Give people a choice. He isn't the judge and government really shouldn't be involved in that choice in the first place. But since it is of discussion, there is nothing wrong with saying hey, you choose. If you choose to terminate, thats your choice and your spiritual decision to deal with. But you will vote against a candidate on that basis. That will cause you to struggle? Wow!

    I already voted for President Obama, but I definitely look forward to watching these rallies over the internet when I can get a break from my work.

    heck I am still trying to figure out who Obama's running mate is. I am pretty sure its Biden but with the way he has hung on Clintons coat tails, I think it may be Billy boy. That or Clinton likes being around Obama cause he reminds him of Monika

    And again Obama is with the people that he loves, the very rich Hollywood elite who have no idea how much a gallon of milk costs or who pays their bills or how much they pay in health insurance, auto insurance, mortgage, food, clothing.

    The Hollywood Elite argument could go both ways…but since Republicans aren't supported by any members of the Hollywood Elite – then this point is pure meatloaf.

    I hope the Boss plays “The River”…

    @myviewis–you must mean Romney's rich supporters. @truth hurts–my offer for finding you a tutor is still open. Seems like you Romney supporters are really coming unglued. The closer we get to election day the more hateful your posts. Don't bother responding I'm leaving to have dinner with friends. I suggest you get a life other than blogging.

    @Truth hurts:
    ***
    We have read your posts for weeks now, and your constant parroting of faux news has gotten very old and
    worn out. If you and faux had been so vocal over the wars Bush/Cheney & Co, started as you are over
    Benghazi, it would have been nice.
    While Benghazi is a tragedy, there is no doubt we will learn the truth after the investigation is complete,
    unlike the Bush clan hiding out.
    Now the Country is dealing with another tragedy named Sandy, and our prayers are with those suffering
    people.
    The "Hollywood" crowd has done more fund raisers for needy people than any other group in America.
    They are willing to put their talents out there, to raise money.
    So, if you ever need help, we know who not to call for you.

    @ truth hurts – your name pretty much sums it up. Obama winning another for more years and the "truth hurts". By the way did Bush/Cheney ever find those WMD that cost several thousand military men and women their lives? Thought so. Repukes are pathetic and soar loser's.

    This is actually quite fitting, perhaps he will sing the Obama theme song: Now main streets whitewashed windows and vacant stores
    Seems like there aint nobody wants to come down here no more
    They're closing down the textile mill across the railroad tracks
    Foreman says these jobs are going boys and they aint coming back to
    Your hometown, your hometown, your hometown, your hometown

    Repukes have the nerve to say Obama hangs with rich people, do the names of Koch brothers, Trump, Shelodn Adelson and Carl Rove ring any bells? Pathetic Repukes are soar loser's. Repeat after me "4 more years, 4 more years". LMAO

    IF and I say IF Romney Does defeat Obama – It will be such a "squeaker" – – I don't compare this election to Carter Vs. Reagan – - – NO Landslide At All – - The polls are tighter than a Mouses ear – - That's why I'm predicting a Squeaker " But Who will it Be ?? Obama or Romney ??

    May the Best Man Win – - 2012
    Hillary ( not Joe) in 2016 ( with a "surplus" in – - 2018 )
