Obama and Springsteen to launch a podcast on Spotify

[quote] Many of the conversations between Obama and Springsteen are likely to focus on fixing America's cultural and political divides. "How did we get here? How could we find our way back to a more unifying American story?" Obama asks in his intro to the show. "On the surface, Bruce and I don't have a lot in common. But over the years, what we’ve found is that we’ve got a shared sensibility. About work, about family and about America. In our own ways, Bruce and I have been on parallel journeys trying to understand this country that’s given us both so much."

Will you be listening in?

Isn't Bruce in prison now for DUI?

by Anonymousreply 202/22/2021

yawn. Have there ever been autobiographies more dull than Obama's and especially Bruce's?

by Anonymousreply 302/22/2021

Sounds dull. No.

Of course, smart people are boring, but if you prefer bombastic idiots, tune in to the cpac low life crowd.

R5 And I don't consider Obama or Springsteen to be particularly insightful, interesting or intelligent. I pass.

by Anonymousreply 602/22/2021

R6, I’m sure you’re no rocket scientist either.

by Anonymousreply 702/22/2021

R7 Such a witty and original reply. I pass.

I dunno. They're both privileged and out of touch. Though Bruce did work his way up if you count rock and roll work. Not hating on them just being realistic about what they have to bring to the table.

by Anonymousreply 902/22/2021

The entire broadcast will just be some sort of motivational speech. There is no point to listen to them unless you are a fan of Springsteen or a supporter of Obama (which makes you also a supporter of a warmonger too).

Obama is an elitist, and Springsteen? his working class root was like 40 years and 3 wives ago, so he is an elitist too. I don't know how two elitists think they can " fixing America's cultural and political divides", there are no divides b/t these two.

by Anonymousreply 1102/22/2021

Is this about his DUI?

by Anonymousreply 1202/22/2021

R12 Maybe Bruce will talk about the right wing conspiracy behind his DUI

by Anonymousreply 1302/23/2021

" I don't know how two elitists think they can " fixing America's cultural and political divides", there are no divides b/t these two."

They'll at least try, unlike Trump and the Republicans, whose only use for "the average guy" is for their campaign donations and their votes.

Talk about elitist. Trump wouldn't let 95% of his Deplorables within 1000 feet of Mar-a-Lago without calling the cops. Always remember, Trump was complaining about how dirty his supporters looked as they were doing his dirty work for him on 1/6/21.

They’re gonna talk about how much they love America. That’s hysterical!

The title should be “Bruce & Obama: Drinking and Driving, Forgiving and Forgetting.”

by Anonymousreply 1802/23/2021

R14 They can try, but still just two rich and privileged guys preaching here. If they want this podcast to work on fixing the "divides", these two need to hit the road, talk to different people, get their perspective, then have a conversation... otherwise it is just an echo chamber.

by Anonymousreply 1902/23/2021

Sounds like it'll be some middlebrow opine-tainment aimed at influencing blue collar middle-aged white guys back over to the left. Bruce is supposed to appeal to them I guess (If BRUCE likes Obama he can't be all that bad!).

I wish them luck but don't have much hope they'll get through to that demographic. Most of the listeners will be middle-class, mainstream basic types who already lean left.

R15 Thank you! ! Many of us think that the Dems behaviors on this website are obsessive. They still haven't realized that Trump is done and he's gone. Even with Biden now president, they continue their long, endless threads on Trump. Not only are the majority of DLers fed up, but it's starting to sound like a propaganda. They never respected the fact that it was a GAY website and not a political one. DL is not the headquarters of the Dems. Enough!

[quote] Obama is an elitist,

In other words he has a college education, is successful and not bigoted. ELITIST!

R21 If you never believed in TDS, reading some of these threads would make a believer out of you. The thread about Levi Johnston is one of the few where I haven't heard Trump mentioned.

You realize that’s not even a tiny bit of a response to what I wrote, don’t you, trumpkin?

This will resonate with Bruce's fanbase so it will help change minds. More conversations like this will help our country heal

Well, the older daughter is into Hollywood, doing who knows what...maybe the younger daughter is into singing? Who knows?

I wouldn't mind it if obama put out a single for charity.

Of course Bruce got off for DUI just because he is. Of course Obama is still a war criminal who will never be made to answer for his crimes either.

Both boring and not especially insightful or all that wise. They know little beyond their own experiences, but I guess that goes for most people in general.

A giant MEH. Won't be listening.
