NEW YORK (AP) — After vowing not to get involved in this year’s presidential election, Bruce Springsteen is supporting Barack Obama again, saying he believes Mr. Obama is the best person to lead America.
The Boss posted a message on his website Wednesday night endorsing Mr. Obama’s re-election, saying he had been “getting asked a lot about where I stand.”
Mr. Springsteen supported Mr. Obama in 2008. In his letter, he called Mr. Obama’s four years in office “a really rough ride” because of the “economic chaos” from President George W. Bush's administration and “the extraordinary intensity of the opposition.”
“Right now, there is a fight going on to help make this a fairer and more equitable nation. For me, President Obama is our best choice to get us and keep us moving in the right direction,” he wrote.
“He needs support in the Congress, where some sterling candidates, such as current Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio, challenger Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, and so many others, are fighting to make their constructive voices heard,” he wrote.
The rock icon added that the division of wealth in the United States is a great issue and that Mr. Obama “is our best choice to begin to reverse this harmful development.”
