Bruce Springsteen Releases Recession-Themed ‘We Take Care of Our Own’ Video

The day after President Obama’s reelection team included Bruce Springsteen’s new single “We Take Care of Our Own” in the list of songs Obama will use on the campaign trail, the Boss released a sing-along-friendly music video for the song. Watch it:

The video, with its decaying infrastructure and its depictions of Americans of all ages and races, makes an important point: the recession isn’t confined to any one group of Americans, and as such, the response shouldn’t be either. No group of Americans is insulated from the recession. And we should all be proud to work together to restore the American promise.
