updated first post with the 4-SONG setlist.

article recapping:

Quote:
TAMPA, Fla. — Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder isn’t singing Republican Mitt Romney’s praises.

Vedder said during a Thursday performance at a fundraiser for President Barack Obama that he was upset by Romney’s caught-on-tape comments from last spring that 47 percent of Americans consider themselves victims and entitled to government help.

“It’s very upsetting to hear a presidential candidate be so easily dismissive of such a ginormous amount of the population,” Vedder told the Obama donors. He said if Romney were to win the White House, “none of those 47 percent of people would have a voice.”

Vedder told the audience that he struggled as a young man and credited a government training program with helping him learn the skills he needed to become a security guard in San Diego, a job that helped support his rock ‘n roll ambitions.

“It was that job that allowed me to also afford the guitars and tape recorder and microphones I needed to let me afford keep working on music,” he said. “It was also the job I reluctantly left to move up to Seattle for less pay, in order to join a band. It all worked out.”

Vedder performed a four-song acoustic set: “Rise,” ‘’Without You,” a cover of James Taylor’s “Millworker” and a cover of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World.”

At one point, Vedder broke out a Hawaiian-made ukulele and joked, “It’s got a little birth certificate right in there.”

That was a reference to discredited claims that Obama was not born in the United States.

also, i lean heavily towards the left but can be swayed either way depending on the candidate.

Can we stop misusing words and understand that Romney was speaking specifically about the vote and not the American people. He was basically saying he knows he does not have and will not get the voting support of 47% of Americans.
Obama knows there is a large percentage that will not be voting for him as well. For 50k a plate those guys did not want to hear about politics. They wanted to hear about how their money would be used effectively.

He said that that same 47% who would never vote for him also saw themselves as victims and wouldn't take responsibility for their lives. He dismissively and crudely disparaged almost half of the country.

What you're saying about Romney talking about efficiently applying campaign dollars is true, but so is the fact of how negatively he characterized those who wouldn't vote for him. This is not what anyone should be looking for in a president.

If they're still touring ten years from now, I might challenge this.
