DEFIANCE, Ohio - Mitt Romney rallied a large crowd in the high school football stadium here tonight after surprise musical guest Meat Loaf belted out an endorsement for the Republican presidential nominee to the crowd of 12,000 people.
Mr. Romney ended a three-city tour of Ohio here and then was to stay overnight at the Hilton Toledo Hotel, with no public events planned.
He is expected to fly out of Toledo Express Airport Friday morning to go to a campaign event in another swing state, Iowa, before returning for a rally Friday night in North Canton, Ohio.
Meat Loaf said he has never taken a public stand but said 2012 is the most important election in the history of the U.S.
"One thing you've been taught all your life is never argue politics or religion with your friends. 2012 is different," he said, telling people to argue on Mr. Romney's behalf. "I called three Democrats and got two of them to switch to Romney, so two out of three ain't bad."
Mr. Romney tailored his remarks to middle-aged workers, young people, and parents. He told college students that, "I know the President wants to get college students to come out and vote for him, but if they do, they're making a big mistake. Half of them won't be able to find a job or at least not one consistent with their college degree."
He said they'll also be stuck with "debts wracked up by me and my generation."
He vowed to cut federal spending, cap federal spending as a percentage of the economy, and get the country on track to a balanced budget. He claimed that health insurance costs will skyrocket because of Obamacare, which he said he would repeal.

Thanks! I even hunted HTML in archives and could not find this. Thanks!!
Bat out of hell, by Meatloaf, is probably the best selling album of all time. Paradise by the dashboard light is my favorite on the album, followed closely by bat out of hell.
Happy Birthday (in 18 days):)
Sure you would, if its an oversung caterwauling that leaves you on the floor in a fetal position with a pillow over your head then its probably Mariah.
you are freaking pulling my leg. best selling of all time? if true, I have led a sheltered life I guess.
This one looks good too, wish it was a better video. I like Kid Rock and also some country music too but not familiar with your guy..great voice though!
Thanks, I’m hoping for one hell of a present around midnight on the 6th!!!
