Springsteen and the RNC

Apparently Bruce Springsteen is saying no to those who want him to hold an anti-Bush concert in Giant’s Stadium during the Republican National Convention. But don’t worry. I have a suspicion that there will be plenty of other anti-Bush activities in New York in late August and early September for people to take part in.

An interesting thought is whether Bush will come to regret the choice of New York City for his convention. NYC was chosen as the convention site in order to help remind people of 9/11 and thus of Bush’s capability in foreign policy and fighting terrorism. But by this fall he may be wanting to run away from his foreign policy, and instead run on the strength of the economy — exactly the opposite of what Cheney and Rove were thinking a year ago when they selected NY.
