The old-timer rocker, Meat Loaf, endorses Mitt Romney during Romney’s weekend campaign stop in Defiance, Ohio. After a disastrous rendition of the America The Beautiful the only question is: did Romney really need Meatloaf’s endorsement that bad? Watch the hilarious Meat Loaf Romney Endorsement video.
According to Gwaker.com and other news sources, Meatloaf, the 65-year-old rock singer from Bat Out Of Hell announced his endorsement of presidential candidate Mitt Romney while Romney made a campaign visit to Ohio on Sunday night. Meat Loaf said this was his first time ever political endorsement of Mitt Romney. All seemed to go well until Meat Loaf, Romney and some other performers stood side by side to sing the ‘America The Beautiful’. In a nutshell; Meat Loaf murdered the song, Romney’s campaign with it!
Gawker.com compares Meat Loaf’s performance to ”if it were emanating from a dying cat that just had its tail stomped on.” Meat Loaf’s performance got so hilariously annoying that you can see in the video Romney couldn’t wait to distance himself from the out-of-tune old rocker. Lucky for Romney, other performers on the stage came to rescue stealing the show from Meat Loaf.
Meat Loaf did urge the gathering crowed to vote for Romney, but according to SmokingGun.com, the rocker himself forgot to register to vote in his home state of Texas, missing the October 9th deadline!
As reports have it the reason behind Meat Loaf endorsing Mitt Romney was because of a statement that Obama made during the presidential debate. Meat Loaf said that “There is thunderstorms over Europe. There are hail storms — and I mean major hail storms — 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’.”
Meat Loaf is apparently experienced in ruining the ‘America The Beautiful’ since he had manage to mangle the song once before during his 2011 hilariously bad performance at the AFL grand finale. According to TheAge.com, Meat Loaf charged AFL around $600,000 for his singing flop.
As it appears, lots of people on the web agree that Meat Loaf might have done the democrats a huge favor by endorsing Mitt Romney the way he did!
