Rock star Meat Loaf appeared at the opening of Mitt Romney’s Ohio rally giving a bizarre weather report on political relations around the world — before an out-of-tune performance of America the Beautiful.
“There has [sic] storm clouds come over the United States. There is [sic] thunder storms 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.”
Meat Loaf said he had never endorsed a presidential candidate before, but he thinks “that in 2012 this is the most important election in the history of the United States“.
Rambling, he went on to say “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 [Vladimir] Putin and Russia.”
He was of course referring to Barack Obama’s mocking of Mitt Romney at the presidential election debate where Obama likened Romney’s foreign policy to that of the Cold War.
Romney had no option but to laugh off the shambolic performance.
