The presidential election is almost a week away, and still celebrities and musicians are coming out of the woodwork to endorse their preferred candidates. At a campaign event last night in Defiance, Ohio, Meat Loaf himself appeared onstage with GOP hopeful Mitt Romney and offered the former governor his support.
In a short speech, the singer appeared to stumble over his words:
“There has stormclouds come over the United States. There is thunderstorms over Europe, there are hailstorms, and I mean major hailstorms, in the Middle East. There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere, and there’s only one man that on the other night when President Barack Obama, God bless him, said to Mitt Romney, ‘The cold war is over.’ I have never heard such a thing in my life. The man needs to understand Putin and Russia, so I want you to know that there is one man who will stand tall in this country and fight the storm and bring the United States back to what it should be … Gov. Mitt Romney!”
Meat Loaf also performed his song “Stand In The Storm” at the event before capping off the night with an off-key rendition of “America The Beautiful.” Watch a video of the endorsement below. [NY Times]
