Springsteen Guitarist Calls Obama a 'Eunuch' in Weirdest Compliment Ever

Entertainment

"I'm perfectly fine with a visionless, meaningless, non-transformative Obama (the other guys would just make things worse)"

In what marks one of the most peculiar compliments ever issued, Bruce Springsteen's guitarist and "Sopranos" actor Steven Van Zandt referred to Obama as a "eunuch" when explaining why voters should re-elect him.

In a blog for the Huffington Post, Van Zandt began [all subsequent emphasis added]:

Personally, speaking as an Independent, I would love to see him remain as our president foreverI have never been more proud or secure in traveling the globe, knowing for one of the few times in my adult life my president wasn't going to embarrass me.  That he wasn't going to insult somebody.  That he wasn't going to start a new war just so his vice-president's company could make more billions.

But at the same time, as president, I expect him to accomplish virtually nothing, just as he did in his first four yearsA small price to pay for some dignity.

With little regard for the "dignity" of the millions of Americans who are now living off the taxpayer, the musician continued to criticize the handling of the Democratic National Convention:

The Dems needed to lay out in detail what their thwarted plans would have meant for the American economy, jobs, social safety net, the future, etc. What they needed to say was THESE are the guys who voted against all this good stuff and if you don't get up off your a** and VOTE THE BAGGERS OUT -- NOTHING WILL GET DONE FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS!

And what is all that "good stuff" the Democrats have failed to adequately advertise?  The "stuff" that Obama would be working on if he was really "transformative," according to Van Zandt?

Here is a partial list:

  • Eliminate all use of fossil fuels over the next ten years;
  • Ban all preservatives, steroids, chemicals, additives, pesticides in our food;
  • Ban sugar;
  • Gather Futurists to design what the country should be in 50 years and then create jobs to fit the model;
  • Eliminate all air and water pollution;
  • Ban plastic bottles;
  • Put Arts classes back into schools;

He added: "...I'm perfectly fine with a visionless, meaningless, non-transformative Obama (the other guys would just make things worse) knowing he'll do no further harm...But wouldn't an Obama that actually got something done be an even better Obama than the dignified but legislative eunuch Obama?"

Newsbusters' Noel Sheppard notes that many Americans have found the "eunuch" Obama "dangerous enough," pointing out all that he has changed in a mere four years.

"Him getting more done is as frightening as a completely unrestrained Tony Soprano," Sheppard concludes, referencing Van Zandt's character in the award-winning television show.
