JON FRIEDMAN'S MEDIA WEB: NBC's Tim Russert Follows His Own Compass
July 18, 2007: 12:41 AM EST
According to his NBC bio, Russert "has interviewed every major figure on the American political scene."
Still, he has regrets. Russert wished he could've had Pope John Paul II on " Meet the Press." "I would've asked him about his life as an outspoken religious leader," Russert said, specifically his impact on the fall of Communism and his views about how American Catholics viewed his teachings.
President Bush hasn't appeared on "Meet the Press" since February 2004, Russert noted. He said that he'd ask Bush if he anticipates any change in the administration's Iraq policy. "I don't expect" there would be one, according to Russert.
Can you guess who is his dream "get"?
It's rock and roll star Bruce Springsteen. "I'm very intrigued by him," Russert said. "He has a real understanding of the political dialogue, of faith and life in urban America."
I think Russert's gone over the deep end. Someone must have paid him to say that Springsteen has a real understanding of the political dialogue, of faith and life in urban America. That's not political dialogue. Hey, Russert come have a peek at his lyrics. He seems to have a real understanding about sex with "little girls," too.
Russert already has a connection to "the Boss." "I booked concerts for John Carroll [University] in Cleveland," Russert recalled. "We paid $2,500 to book him on a Tuesday night in February 1974."
Russert has a connection to the BOSS! Oh my goodness, can we touch you?
Aside from the indelible mental snapshot of seeing a brilliant performer 18 months before he made it big, Russert cherishes the memory for a more practical reason: "I made enough money to pay for my second year of law school."
He said he told Springsteen the story once when he ran into him at a New York City restaurant. Springsteen laughed and said, "That sounds like one of my songs."
I bet Russert could woo Springsteen by playing snippets of his tunes to accompany appearances by the candidates: "Glory Days" for Sen. John McCain, " Born to Run" for Sen. Hillary Clinton, "Two Hearts" for John Edwards, "It's Hard to be a Saint in the City" for Mitt Romney, "New York City Serenade" for Rudy Giuliani, "Jungleland" for Mayor Michael Bloomberg and, of course, "I'm on Fire" for Obama.
You think Russert could WOO Springsteen. One man WOOING another. Okay. The mention of some snippets of Springsteen's songs to be played during appearances by candidates, you've got to be kidding, right? Whomever wrote this article has gone over the deep end with Russert. "I'm on Fire" being played during an Obama appearance. Would that mean Springsteen is on fire for Obama or that Obama is on fire for a little girl whose Daddy isn't home?"
If Michael Dukakis, comes on the show, Russert can cue up "Kitty's Back" for the missus.
I asked Russert if he had reached out to Springsteen to request an interview. He shook his head, as if he was unworthy of the meeting. It was reassuring to see that even Tim "No Surrender" Russert, the scourge of Washington, could act a little overwhelmed by someone.
Oh, come on, Russert, reach out! Unworthy of the meeting? What does one have to do to be worthy of a Springsteen meeting/interview? Kiss his feet? Russert is a "No Surrender" scourge of Washington and is overwhelmed by Springsteen. Does he go ga-ga or something?
Has Cheney's temporary reign as President expired yet?
Hopefully, the doctors won't make any fatal medical errors while performing Bush's colonscopy.
Although Cheney runs the show; operates behind the scenes; is Bush's puppet master, the thought of that man front and center as Commander in Chief, the President of the United States would be a worse nightmare than we now face.
You treated me hard and made my heart ache
I know you're only human, and men they make mistakes
Your life with her turned to black
And now you want our love back
Well come into my arms and fall, my lover man
Was it a gypsy's curse or a hex sign
Or was it just that simple thing that led you from these arms of mine
Oh yes, I've had the days
To grow used to your foolish ways
And what is it really, after all, my lover man
I can see the change in your eyes
There's no need to apologize
We stood at the wishing well
Our dreams like coins into the water fell
The water so cold and black
There was no going back
I don't mean to cause you hurt or cause you pain
Life is short and love's a dirty game
Now there's no need for our game to end
Come close and we'll begin
To find our beautiful selves again, my loverman

BlueAngel,I must say this thread is interesting even though is pain to read.
155 pages and counting.
I didnt go through it all yet,and I have skipped a lot of boring lyrics.
I cant believe how many song lyrics Springsteen has,how many crap songs he's got is funny.
I dont remember to ever listened to Springsteen,not sure why anybody does anyway.
I like to say one thing to you though,and that is:
Springsteen is not talking to you.You might feel that way but he isnt.You write a lot about you being on Springsteen's fan site or whatever,only to feel like people know who you are in the forums.
I dont think Springsteen ever visits any of his websites,or talks in the forums.
I would suggest you dont go to any Springsteen websites at all,there is no reason to,since you are not some dumb fan.
Dont ever think that humans can read your mind,trust me is not possible,we dont have such abilities.
The Devils can.
Remember this,for your own good.
You say some very interesting, and true things here in your thread,you seem to be very knowledgeable in certain things,yet you are also very confused on others.
Praise be to God Lord of the Universe.
So, who is this FIGMENT (Figgy)? Certainly not an imaginery "pussy cat," pretty LITTLE KITTY CAT who is the Cafe's mascot over at BTX (backstreets.com; Springsteen's unofficial site).
Perhaps, a BETA alter that belongs to a mind control survivor who is no longer MIND CONTROLLED by the handlers/controllers and programmers on Springsteen's unofficial site. Many of the same players from the official site.
Wade has asked Figment, the imaginery "pussy cat," as DNA refers to her, to post something, dear. He just sees his name popping up.
Yes, they want a "kitty cat" to post something on the thread/site.
Like I said, I don't really care who you are, but whomever you are, you apparently don't know much about the NWO if you disbelieve that the music industry isn't owned and operated by a bunch of thugs who practice mind control on their musicians and, in turn, their musicians practice mind control on their fans and advance the NWO agenda of an immoral society void of sexual inhibitions and the corruption of our species!
For some unknown reason which you have yet to explain, or some reason which is known to US, you would prefer to call me NUTS rather than acknowledge "mind control" and/or mind control within the music industry.
The existence of MKULTRA/Project Monarch is public knowledge. The experimentation on unwitting citizens conducted by the "rogue CIA," the conduit of these grotesque programs; has been acknowledged publicly by President Clinton and during Ted Kennedy's investigation. Colby acknowledged Project Monarch.
THEY ARE NOT A SECRET! Bluebird, The Deliberate Creation of Multiple Personality, by Dr. Colin Ross.
Survivors have written books!
Thousands of people, children/adults have reported SRA and other survivors as to their incarceration in these mind control "CULTS."
Presidio is an example of CHILDREN not being believed when taken from classrooms through underground tunnels and sexually abused; looking for talented and gifted prey; less fortunate, perhaps.
Psychologists coerce CHILDREN through "suggestions" and then use these tactics to discredit their allegations.
THE AMA, the Psychiatric field, etc. has been trained very well to aid the culprits in escaping prosecution and the revelation of what occurs at some schools through underground tunnels.
The depth of the corruption and abuse upon children incarcerated in this "CULT," within the "music industry," pornography, black operations, etc. has not yet been revealed.
AS I HAVE STATED ABOUT YOU and that which is OBVIOUS, you will either fall off the fence that you straddle or get splinters in your behind.
You can't be on both sides at the same time.
Why do you continue to GHOST me on this site?
Why does this thread bother you so?
We already know the answers to these questions, RedRat, but, please feel free to elaborate.
