The Worst Musician of all time supporting the WORST POTUS of all time…...fitting!!!

If Obama loses this election, you can blame/thank the Right for bamboozling him. How is it ethical that an entire news network questions the President’s citizenship for four years to create doubt in voters while a fringe element of the far right demonizes and degrades him? Most of this is financed by the rich who want to keep their stranglehold on the flow of wealth in our country. Watch the white hands apply the Blackface to our first African-American President at

The article says the show is on saturday night, it is actually sunday night on the Community College of Aurora Lowry Campus.

It’s always about race for you idiots. Obama goes down on Tuesday. He has failed. That is all.

Read Tom…..The show in Bristow, VA (see above) is Saturday, NOV 3rd….The Aurora Lowry Campus show is the next night….Sunday the 4th. Garmin….WHEN the successful President Obama is re-elected…please deal with it with equanimity and reflection. That is all.

Anyone know if we can get there early or if the venue only opens 1-2 hours before the event?

Gay Dave November 3, 2012, 01:33:27

Dave is gay

@jen – doors open at 7:00, rally commences about 10:30; I would expect people to start lining up at noon or earlier for this event.
@Gay Dave: And your point is?

At the end of the day, president Obama will be re-elected. There is no way he will lose the election. The media out of greedines is playing this as if those that voted for obama are all dead. All those i know that voted for Obama 4 years ago are all voting for him this year too. See ya all at Bristow today.

The only thing that could have made me more intent on NOT voting for Obama – Dave Matthews

Obama is a war mongering tool of the military industrial complex. He is a corporate wall street puppet. In other words, everything Dave Matthews and all the “Left” claim yo oppose. If you want anti-war, anit-crony capital, pro-legalization, pro-civil liberties vote Gary Johnson.

doug austin November 3, 2012, 12:39:00

Don’t watch this if you facts and really cool graphics annoy you!

Luke and Lucy White November 3, 2012, 12:48:34

Obama is favored to serve four more in the Whitehouse

Wow… after 8 years of the republican party The country was falling off a cliff. Stock market had crashed, the big 3 car companies were in bad shape, unemployment was around 12 percent and the 2 father/son bush presidents had 3 wars going doing their terms. They put this country in debt alone wth their no-regulation banking policies, allowed the greedy banking industry to break the banks which they thought was “ Two big to fail”.......Now after just 4 years of President Obama, who has gotten this country back on track, but still has work to do.They want us to vote for the republican party. Why would anyone vote for the republican party again! Some americans have short memories.

He has failed, and he will be a lame duck in 3 days. Sorry, when you don’t live up to the high expectations you place on yourself, you get your ass booted out for the next guy. If Romney sucks it up, guess what…he’ll be bounced for someone better…and on down the line…

Gay Dave November 3, 2012, 16:58:49

@paxactive: my point is, that its cool when heterosexual men like members of the dead support politicians, because they make music for all people that brings us together. When you have a blowhard like mr Matthews singing his whiny crap it really is an insult to the cause.

Corey November 3, 2012, 18:22:14

Lots of hateful comments for a hippie website. Since Obama got elected.. things are better. Dont be hateful.. be grateful.

Jdog November 4, 2012, 12:32:05

Obama 2012. Rock on Dave.

Bab's Uvula November 5, 2012, 09:17:07

I hate it when artists go “political.” There shouldn’t be any doubt in anyone’s mind that DM is an Obama guy, but when you risk pissing off a large segment of your audience by going public with your politics, it must mean that either DM doesn’t care or is ignorant. Either way, he loses. There are lots of folks out there who will stop buying DM records because of this.

Jimmy November 5, 2012, 10:45:34

Voting is for the birds

Mitch November 5, 2012, 11:09:15

Jdog, you’re lacking mental capacity. He did the same thing last time Obama campiagned and I think his record sales have been just fine since then. (2 albums released, both debuted at number 1)

Shred November 5, 2012, 12:28:08

The only thing worse than Dave Matthew’s voice is Obama being president. They both should retire.

Ron November 6, 2012, 18:15:06

I agree with Shred. Romney ’12.

Rose November 10, 2012, 22:54:48

Haha! The Best: OBAMA wins! Dave: always amazing with his band.
Those who don’t like, going to China.
