Cleveland

Few knew about Stevie Wonder appearance for President Barack Obama at Cleveland State University on Saturday

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Legendary performer Stevie Wonder this morning expressed his love for Cleveland during a get-out-the-vote rally at Cleveland State University.

His love went largely unrequited.

Fewer than 200 people showed up to watch Wonder perform a handful of his hits at the early voting event in support of President Barack Obama.

Most of the people had learned of the event just hours before the 9:30 a.m. start time. Some just happened to be in the area and followed the live music.

    You can’t hold events that Obama supporters will show up to until at least 1PM.

    That might even be pushing it.

    They lied to Stevie too, said the crowd was 200K strong. And he bought it.

    Very superstitious

    Very superstitious
    Obama’s about to fall

    Stevie wasn’t embarrassed, unlike Obama he didn’t see the size of the crowd.

    Who are the hords of folks that perpetuate Stevie’s blackness? Why would it matter to him?

    Most “kids” at a college wouldn’t know, or care who Stevie is anyway…..

    I wonder if he played this greates hit:

    We are amazed but not amused
    By all the things you say that you’ll do
    Though much concerned but not involved
    With decisions that are made by you

    But we are sick and tired of hearing your song
    Telling how you are gonna change right from wrong
    ‘Cause if you really want to hear our views
    “You haven’t done nothing”!

    It’s not too cool to be ridiculed
    But you brought this upon yourself
    The world is tired of pacifiers
    We want the truth and nothing else

    And we are sick and tired of hearing your song
    Telling how you are gonna change right from wrong
    ‘Cause if you really want to hear our views
    “You haven’t done nothing”!

    Jackson 5 join along with me say
    Doo doo wop – hey hey hey
    Doo doo wop – wow wow wow
    Doo doo wop – co co co
    Doo doo wop – naw naw naw
    Doo doo wop – bum bum bum
    Doo doo wop

    We would not care to wake up to the nightmare
    That’s becoming real life
    But when mislead who knows a person’s mind
    Can turn as cold as ice un hum

    Why do you keep on making us hear your song
    Telling us how you are changing right from wrong
    ‘Cause if you really want to hear our views
    “You haven’t done nothing”!
    Yeah

    With today’s communication tools a few hours notice should have had thousands out on that campus. If they only got 200 it’s a death knell for Obama and the student population. These students either will not vote or they’ll vote for Romney in the hopes that he can right the economy by the time they graduate so they can get a job.

    Looking back on when I
    Was a little nappy headed boy
    Then my only worry
    Was for Christmas would be a boy
    Even though we sometimes
    Would not get a thing
    We were happy with the
    Shroom the day would bring

    Sneaking out the back door
    To hang out with those acorn friends of mine
    Greeted at the back door
    With boy thought I told you not to go outside
    Tryin’ your best to bring the
    Water to your eyes
    Thinkin’ it might stop the panthers
    From woopin’ your behind

    I wish those voters could come back once more
    Why did those voters ev-er have to go
    I wish those voters could come back once more
    Why did those voters ev-er have to go
    Cause I love them so

    Brother says he’s tellin’
    ‘Bout you playin’ doctor with that boy
    Just don’t tell I’ll give you
    Anything you want in this whole wide world
    Mama gives you money for Sunday school
    You trade yours for marijuana after church is through

    Smokin’ dope and writing something racists on the wall (you nasty crossdressing boy)
    Teacher sends you to the principal’s office down the hall
    You grow up and learn that fraud thing ain’t right
    But while you were doing it-it sure felt outta sight

    I wish those voters could come back once more
    Why did those voters ev-er have to go
    I wish those voters could come back once more
    Why did those voters ev-er have to go

    AssHoleRod is now saying the reason for the low crowd count at OBysmals rally is that no one on the staff and crew set their clocks back last night.
