Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen Announce Co-Authored Book 'Renegades: Born in the U.S.A.'

Source: Rolling Stone

President Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen will release a joint book, Renegades: Born in the U.S.A., on October 26th globally via Higher Ground/Penguin Random House.

The tome is described as “a collection of candid, intimate, and entertaining conversations,” which began in Spotify’s co-produced podcast of the same name. Published in an oversized, fully-illustrated format, the book will also feature rare and exclusive photographs from the authors’ personal collections and never-before-seen archival material, including Springsteen’s handwritten lyrics and Obama’s annotated speeches.

“Over the years, what we’ve found is that we’ve got a shared sensibility,” Obama writes in the book’s opening pages. “About work, about family, and about America. In our own ways, Bruce and I have been on parallel journeys trying to understand this country that’s given us both so much. Trying to chronicle the stories of its people. Looking for a way to connect our own individual searches for meaning and truth and community with the larger story of America.”

Springsteen adds, in the book’s introduction, “There were serious conversations about the fate of the country, the fortune of its citizens, and the destructive, ugly, corrupt forces at play that would like to take it all down. This is a time of vigilance when who we are is being seriously tested. Hard conversations about who we are and who we want to become can perhaps serve as a small guiding map for some of our fellow citizens.”

7. Hawaii is an overseas territory of Kenya, so not the USA

similar to how Oakland, CA is a shared exclave of Jamaica and India. Everyone knows I was born in the section of NYC where a lot of H-1b job stealers are born.

One of my favorite moments of the 2016 election was when that orange turd gave Ted Cruz a hard time for being born in Canada and then Ted responded that Donny's mama was born in Scotland.

8. The Boss and Obama what a great team. We need to find the next Obama who can begin to fix the

country. The only person I can think of that can speak and think as good, if not better, is Michelle Obama. I know she said she would never run for office but hopefully she would reconsider. Bruce would be an interesting pick as well. Bruce appeals to a broad range of Americans from both sides of the political divide.

10. Joe Scarborough has been desperately trying to be all that rolled into him...he has delusions of

rock-star fame. He's got this little group that plays clubs every now and then in little clubs in Manhattan. I think he has an album, iirc.

The mind boggles.
