Ohio: Stevie Wonder Obama Rally Draws Less Than 200 (Another dud for the dud alert)
Big Hollywood ^ | November 3, 2012 | Alexander Marlow

Posted on 11/03/2012 9:21:44 PM PDT by Zakeet

Four and a half years ago at a primary campaign rally for Barack Obama, Stevie Wonder made headlines when he sang this major scale with Michelle Obama for a packed house at UCLA

[Snip]

Today, the "Superstition" singer performed at an Obama get-out-the-vote rally on another college campus, but the atmosphere was slightly less electric. From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

[Snip]

And not all of the less-than-200 were there because of Barack Obama. As one attendee told the Plain Dealer, "How do you pass up a chance to see Stevie Wonder?"

What a difference a failed administration makes.

By now, even the Royal Oaf should be able to tell that the enthusiasm for him this election is somewhat diminished from the last one.

Alice Cooper’s family used to be Mormon.

Mitt should’ve had him perform at a rally.

“Stuffy old Republicans” my arse.

Steve must’ve seen red when looking at such a sparse audience.

For that matter, I think I recall that James Hetfield of Metallica came from a mormon family...
Is that true, metal heads out there?

Looking like the magic has left Barack the Magic Negro.....

The phenomenon is that darn few want to cozy up to an obvious loser. This landslide could grow into a tsunami by Tuesday.

But it's ok because they told him there were 20,000 there. What's a few extra zero's? When the big O has to bring in the blind because no sighted performer would want to be seen in front of such a small crowd, you know you're in trouble!

If you want to see a good black, blind, performer endorsing a candidate go to Youtube and watch Ray Charles sing “America” at the 1984 (maybe 80?) RNC.

According to Wiki, Hetfield’s parents were ‘strict’ - something knows as “Christian Scientists”.

If people are coming to see Stevie Wonder and Katy Perry, that’s all you need to know about the parlous state of the Obama Campaign.

Its walking dead. Tuesday should be a blowout.

And my husband says Hetfield rebelled from Christian Science at a young age because his parents didn't believe in going to the doctor and his mother died of cancer.

Somewhat a tangent.
Anyone know if ray Charles played live
for Reagan or did he give permission
To use his recorded music?
I know it was one of those. Can’t remember.

From an analysis of the song “The God That Failed”;

My understanding is that this song has to do with Hetfield’s parent’s religion. They’re Christian Scientists who do not believe in doctors or hospitals, but instead that God will heal you.

But Alice has the bonafides

Cooper was born as Vincent Damon Furnier in Detroit, Michigan, USA, the son of Ella Mae (née McCart) and Ether Moroni Furnier.

His father was a lay preacher in the Church of Jesus Christ (also known as the Bickertonite Church) which, historically, is a branch of the Latter Day Saint movement.

He has French Huguenot, Sioux Native American, English, Scottish, and Irish ancestry, and was named after one of his uncles (Vincent Collier Furnier) and the writer Damon Runyon.

His paternal grandfather, Thurman Sylvester Furnier, was an apostle in the Church of Jesus Christ (Bickertonite). Vincent Furnier was active in his church at the ages of 11 and 12.

My guess is organizational snafu. I have to wonder if this is indicative of the state of the campaign. The numbers look horrible, so they overspend on ads and don’t have enough money left to pay organizers to handle the nitty-gritty aspects of publicizing events like this. Maybe they had so many volunteers in 2008 that they never figured on having to pay people to organize events.

Nope.

Scots and French Huguenot.

His nose was always infamous-Furnier-big but he broke it in an accident and got his now infamous snoot.

Thanx, Sal...
I thought Hetfield’s parents were of some kind of notable faith...just forgot what it was...he had a bad reaction from growing up with it, didn’t he?
He’s my fave of Metallica...once Jason Neusted (?) left.
You really know your rockers...I’m impressed!
But isn’t Alice a die hard lib? Or has he “grown up” and finally become an adult?

Alice a lib?

Surely you jest.

He’s a biblical literalist Christian conservative.

He’s supported every R candidate for like...forever.

Don’t let the stage show fool you.

He is intensely moral.

This is what he does with all the money his fans spend on his shows/swag/etc:

http://www.alicecoopersolidrock.com/

When asked about 0 ‘getting’ Osama he said “He was just in the right place at the right time. Anybody could’ve done the same thing.”

He also said that rockers who supported Kerry were “traitors”.

No lib, Alice.

Well, guess *who* saved Mustaine’s bacon [from drugs, booze] and lead him to Christ.

Yep.

Alice.

Dave calls Alice his “godfather”.

In fact, quietly behind the scenes, Alice counsels lots of rock stars for their addictions and evangelizes whenever possible.
He offers his private phone number for 24/7 support.

The guy who was ‘every parent’s nightmare’ is actually known as ‘the nicest guy in rock and roll’.

And people think I’m just a crazy devoted fan.

The dude deserves my loyalty.
