BUTCHERS

'America the Beautiful' at Romney Event

There he was ... Meat Loaf harmlessly singing "America the Beautiful" with Mitt Romney at a campaign event yesterday ... when all of a sudden, Mr. Loaf went COMPLETELY OFF THE RAILS. 

Meat decided the traditional rendition of the song was a little too boring ... and sane ... so he mixed things up a bit -- with some improv shouting and yelling that he probably considered "creative improvements."

What ensued was nothing short of a musical train wreck.

It's awesome -- ya gotta watch Mitt's face.

Metloaf was just acting out what would happen if romney won the election. Goes to show you what kind of halfwits are voting republican, donald trump, clint eastwood and meatloaf. None of those people have any emotions, and that is the republican target audience, the dumn and the numb.

P.S. It really burns my ass that the republican slogan is "Recovery", since it was their own party under the Bush Administrations that caused the sickness.

He did an excellent job. It was the man with gray hair on the left who starated the song who messed it up. Meatloaf was just trying to fix it at the end. The first guy was so bad I was ready to tear my eyes out. Then Meatloaf came in like a breath of fresh air or a bat out of hell.


The first guy was singing in an off key monotone, sort of matching the personality of Mitt Romeny.

Obviously they didn't do appropriate research on Meatloaf's recent performances. Seriously, all anyone needs to watch his live performance at the Australia Rules Grand Final in 2011, esp. 4:30 onwards, but definitely check out the whole thing.
