Presidential candidate Mitt Romney could be feeling paradise by the dashboard lights after rocker Meat Loaf endorsed him at a rally in the swing state of Ohio.

It was a highly ungrammatical endorsement, but with the election less than two weeks away, it hardly mattered.

"There has storm clouds come over the United States," the singer said, after performing a few songs at a high school football stadium in Defiance, ahead of a speech by Romney.

He continued: "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.'"

"I have never heard such a thing in my life," Meat Loaf continued. "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 — Governor Mitt Romney!"

Meat Loaf, whose given name was Michael Lee Aday, might have surprised his audience with his passion for foreign affairs.

He did tell the crowd that he had never endorsed a candidate before but said, "I think that in 2012 this is the most important election in the history of the United States."

Romney promptly appeared to salute his support from the "fabulous" Meat Loaf, along with country singer Randy Owen of the band Alabama and Big and Rich.

President Obama surely has more celebrities campaigning on his side than Romney. But Republicans are likely thinking at this point that — together with Clint Eastwood — two out of three ain't bad.
