Skip to comments.Ohio: Stevie Wonder Obama Rally Draws Less Than 200 (Another dud for the dud alert)
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
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:
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.
Stevie Wonder is said to have piloted his private jet to the rally.
Ebony and irony.
At least he didn’t have to see it...
For that matter, I think I recall that James Hetfield of Metallica came from a mormon family...
Is that true, metal heads out there?
Obamugabe to Stevie: “The stadium is overflowing with people!”
“there is superstition, Writin’s on the wall” he he
Stevie to Obamugabe: “You don’t look black to me!”
The phenomenon is that darn few want to cozy up to an obvious loser. This landslide could grow into a tsunami by Tuesday.
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”.
Stevie to Obamugabe: “I can’t sing for you tonight. I have an eye problem. I can’t see playing to your empty a$$ stadium.”
My husband says he was brought up a Christian Scientist.
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.
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.
[c’mon Alice...The fool’s out, forever!]
Stevie Wonder? That top singer?
Did they also have Harry Belafonte and the bananas?
and then there’s THIS
CEO of ‘bummer’s Jobs Council - backing Romney
it’s falling apart at the seams
There are more MILK DUDS in a large box than attended this rally. And Milk Duds at least have good taste.
Sandra Fluke was using the banana.
Warms my heart.
With or without the Obamacare provided condom?
TO #26. She kept the outer skin on. Nothing worse than getting pregnant by an skinned banana.
Day O, Daaayyyy O, here I cum and then I’ll go home!
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.
“I just called to say...I’m voting for Romney”
Stevie to Otrama: "Damn, I must be going deaf too cause I can't here them!"
"Yes, but you must never tell him"
Cooper looks Jewish. Thought he was another Kiss type - Jewish guys in makeup.
Scots and French Huguenot.
His nose was always infamous-Furnier-big but he broke it in an accident and got his now infamous snoot.
[which I *love*]
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?
Thank...my maternal grandfather was one also...
But when he got sick, had no prob running to a doc....
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:
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.
Didn’t know that. Thanks.
Somehow I thought he was...
Paint me as stunned with this news as I was with Dave Mustain (?) being a solid conservative...
Yay, Alice! Rock on!!!
Well, guess *who* saved Mustaine’s bacon [from drugs, booze] and lead him to Christ.
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.
You have just made me an Alice fan...great guy!
Will put him with Kid Rock now...
I didn’t know that. You learn something new every day.
I’m just a little encyclopedia of useless trivia.
Ping to #48.
