WATCH: Cleveland Native, Celebrity Makes Special Appearance at Romney Rally

Patricia Heaton, the former "Everybody Loves Raymond" star, cracked some jokes and talked to the crowd about Gov. Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan in North Canton Oct. 26, 2012.

Television celebrity Patricia Heaton joked about being a Browns fan but got serious about why life under an Obama administration "doesn't have to be that way." She urged a 10,000-person crowd gathered at Hoover High School in North Canton Friday evening to vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket on Nov. 6.

Meatloaf ruined God Bless America? Awful quiet about that, for some reason.
Dan LaVigne October 28, 2012 at 06:53 AM
Did you see where right wing activists attacked women again. This time was the Nuns on the bus when they stopped in Marietta accusing the sisters of "espousing radical ideology". Typical of the party made up of 89% white and 79% white males, Attack nuns and attack women on deciding that they have no control over there health issues. Got to love these Republicans especially the far right of this party
Shelley October 28, 2012 at 07:31 AM
Do you know how pathetic you sound when you speak of womens reproductive rights. We women laugh at you every time you go there. It's absurd! I am 46 do you know how many administrations both Dem and Rep we have been through in my life and there has ALWAYS been free or nearly free birth control available to MEN and women and abortion has been legal since I was in 2nd grade. Presidents cannot over turn a Supreme Court decision. For Obama to campaign on that makes him think you are all so STUPID that you would believe it. And, as we can see, some of you are.
Shelley October 28, 2012 at 07:54 AM
From where do you get these ridiculous statistics? You might want to delete you post Dan, you are embarrassing yourself. Your post is truly absurd. My 3rd grader wouldn't believe it. I'll ask the nuns at my daughters school if they've heard anything and get back with you. Where ever you get that 11% of Republicans are a combination of African American, Latino, Native American (like myself) is wrong. and to say that only 21% of them are women is silly. Take a quick glance at one of those Romney rallies where there are 12,000 people. Notice they are all colors and an even split women and men. I would know. I attended one. Also google all of the voter fraud arrests this year. All in the Obama camp, just like in 08 only the fraud was found after the election, It's just not in our nature to be uninformed liars who believe anything on an Obama commercial as is the Obama voter demographic. We like to watch congressional hearings, and CSPAN,. We've watched every Presidents every move and judge every election and we don't always vote Republican. We vote for the best candidate. We're just American like that. We don't vote based on whose partying with the Hollywood stars. And if we don't win we won't throw a tantrum as you will when you don't win.

The next President will select three Supreme Court justices. If that's Mitt Romney, such a court could overturn Roe v Wade.
Watts October 28, 2012 at 08:36 AM
I think that what you meant to say is that "Obama is a Failure" is a PA spammer.

Shelly well said
John McMillan October 28, 2012 at 01:36 PM
Shelley, your postings are rude and insulting. Name calling is a sure sign of ignorance about the issues. You are certainly a "typical" conservative/Repub in that you are blindly parroting what your party tells you to think. I'm sorry you have not been exposed to accuracy and truth (as well as some common manners).
John McMillan October 28, 2012 at 01:58 PM
"tom m" we have known about you for a long time, so I wouldn't even go there. Not only do you post anonymously (embarrassed or cowardly?), but you also NEVER get the facts right...everything is your uninformed opinion based on what your party tells you to think. I never "welcomed and defended" any other posts...just questioned why several people spent countless hours trying to play police force, and go after what THEY believed were SPAM posts (never been proven, either, as far as I'm concerned). These latest posts are so obviously automatically generated, based on content and frequency, that they definitely qualify as SPAM. The absence of a response when replied to also makes them suspect. Not only that, they are nasty in nature (another sign of desperation by the Right). Who calls themself "Obama is a failure"...is that how they define themselves? And to take the time to copy the President's campaign logo, twisting it to read "Obummer"??? Add to that the untruths and inaccuracies contained in the "content"...very very sad poster indeed, I'm assuming an individual with a lot of time on his hands, with TV tuned to Fox News 24/7.
John McMillan October 28, 2012 at 01:58 PM
And PLEASE quit whining about "biased media" and "oversampled" polls...no one really cares, except your fellow lemmings. Seriously, I'm SHOCKED that nothing is being done or said about Mitt's interest in Ohio's voting machines....THAT should automatically disqualify him as a candidate, don't you think? One thing I think is certain, voting day is going to be more like "voting week"...I predict an election similar to 2000...recounts, accusations, maybe even lawsuits. Sad to think how complicated it has become to exercise our most basic right! In my humble opinion, I think we're all concentrating on the wrong end of things...we should fire the entire Congress and start over! Then things may actually start to change!!
John McMillan October 28, 2012 at 02:08 PM
Shelley, how do you assume to speak for the entire Repub party? You say "we" this and "we" that, and you just sound all pompous and patronizing? Then you say "We" don't always vote Republican, all the while defending that party and making insinuations about the Democrats. To quote your own post, "your post is truly absurd"...as well as condescending and rude. And for Jean to chime in, "well said" is just hilarious. Maybe you two should take "tom m" and all go for a spa day together...learn to relax and be nice to others.
tom m October 28, 2012 at 02:20 PM
John a spa date with 2 highly intelligent females sounds good to me ......and while we are relaxing at the spa, you can be out protesting with a diehard member of your base ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpAOwJvTOio
tom m October 28, 2012 at 02:24 PM
John McMilllan you just proved my point with your latest rambling post..............but you could care less because you have been exposed for what you are "A nasty Liberal" ....................its good to see you are already starting with the voter fraud posts
John McMillan October 28, 2012 at 04:04 PM
Hadn't heard about this one, had to look it up LOL! So renowned political pundit Meatloaf (!) has endorsed Romney, urging people to vote? Now it seems he's not even registered himself haha! Speaks for itself, dontcha think?

Buffett still owes almost $1 billion in taxes By Bill Wilson — It is ironic that Warren Buffett continues to allow himself to be the front-man for Obama’s call for higher taxes, when his own company, Berkshire Hathaway, has outstanding tax bills going back a decade of almost $1 billion

Your a socialist ? well that says it all
Jean Hoffman October 28, 2012 at 05:12 PM
Yet another example of why Ohioans can’t trust Romney. Because he is desperate to win the state, after seeing a media story on Chrysler, he falsely interprets it -- likely on purpose -- and falsely claims that the automaker is moving production of all Jeeps to China. He and his team need a course in truth telling and reading comprehension. He could have researched the topic before presenting these lies as facts. Making it worse, rather than having the guts to correct himself, he keeps repeating the false information, and the campaign is using some of this fiction in its ads. Romney; Zero credibility! http://www.freep.com/article/20121027/NEWS15/310270053/Romney-camp-silent-on-his-Jeep-to-China-gaffe http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-34222_162-57541359/romney-cites-incorrect-auto-manufacturing-claim-in-ohio/ http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20121026/POLITICS01/210260402/1121/AUTO01/Romney--Chrysler-may-move-Jeep-production-to-China
Watts October 28, 2012 at 08:51 PM
Shelly, your ignorance to still not recognize that the president chooses supreme court justices who will determine the fate of Roe v Wade is amazing. The Republican party has been on a decades long crusade to stack that deck and after Bush, the US is only a couple of appointed seats away from that happening. Both Romney and Ryan have expressed their own personal pleasure in seeing that happen. If Romney/Ryan win, this country is certainly then put on the fast track of taking away women's rights in this area. That isn't a scare tactic, that is reality.
Watts October 28, 2012 at 08:57 PM
His figures aren't too far off as far as the racial breakdown of the Republican party, according to Gallup: Republicans are significantly more likely than the overall population to be non-Hispanic whites -- 87%... in 2011 -- and this has not changed since 2008. Most of the remaining Republicans (7%) are Hispanic, while 3% are black. The 12% of Republicans who are nonwhite contrasts with the 26% of all U.S. adults in this category. But as far as the gender, I couldn't find that.
Colter95 October 28, 2012 at 11:38 PM
The real flip-flopper is Obama... Obama has done that so many times it's hard to keep track. He voted against increasing the debt limit, and then supported raising it. Campaigned against the Bush tax cuts, and then extended them. Promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term, and then doubled it. Vowed the unemployment rate would be below 8% if his stimulus was passed, but then it broke 10%. Only an artificial stimulus by the Federal Reserve now has it under 8%, barely. Promised shovel ready jobs, then admitted they weren't shovel ready. Said if you like your health plan you can keep it, but then threw seniors off Medicare Plus and employers are now saying they'll dump people onto the public exchange. Promised to have health care negotiations on live tv, but then reversed himself. Indicated Bush violated the Constitution, then carried out warrantless wiretaps, indefinite detentions, secret renditions,quadrupled drone attacks, and kept Guantanamo Bay open. Voted against the Patriot Act, but then supported its extension. Said lobbyists wouldn't work in the White House, then gave them waivers to work there. Vowed to take public financing for his 2008 campaign, then refused it when he realized he would receive more without it. Obama said his administration would be the most transparent in history. Yet his lies and coverup attempts on Benghazi are still at hand, while he tries to wait it out past the election.
Shelley October 29, 2012 at 12:31 AM
WATTS: Let me explain something to you dear. The entire Congress must approve anyone that the President recommends to join the Supreme Court. It is a bi-partisan decision as the Congress can block candidate after candidate that any President puts up. Further, the Bush put in John Roberts, a scholar like yourself should remember it was he who allowed Obamacare to be legal. Not because it is legal under commerce laws where it is ok to force Americans all to purchase something against their will, but it his opinion let it ride as a TAX. How conservative was that? You have great scare tactics, but they don't match reality. I stand by my original statement. Obama's campaign targets the uninformed who parrot crap as you just did. SQUACK! Congratulations, you are his demographic!
Shelley October 29, 2012 at 12:51 AM
Watts, of course you won't quote the breakdown of women for Romney. What I saw on 4 different morning news shows today it is breaking around 40% for Romney. New polls will be out tomorrow. But now I'll speak to the people who live in Ohio. Why do you think our economy is increasingly better since 2010? It is all because of the Republicans that we voted in to fix the state. If you pause the Democratic rhetoric for a moment and google some facts you will see that the states that have job growth since 2010 mostly voted in Repub Governors that year. The states that are doing the worst did not and had stimulus money pumped to them and wasted. For example California. Nancy Pelosi got a ton of stimulus cash in California and some of the "investments" made with tax dollars that failed were located there. That state is bankrupt. If some of you looking up the voting record of Meatloaf spent a little more time googling Benghazi or watching CSPAN the past 4 years you might have information on which to base your vote like Colter95, tom m, Jean and I do instead of repeating campaign slogans and lies.

MITT & HIS BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB WANT TO DISTRACT US....Romney & his Wealthy Donors CAN'T wait to reap the benefits of when Romney Eliminates: Long Term Capital Gains...BILLIONS of dollars UNTAXED! Why they won't have to have Swiss Bank Accounts anymore! PLUS Middle Class will be giving them a $250,000 Tax Break to boot! ..... The Debates gave us a look at each candidate.Romney CHANGED his positions drastically in hopes to win votes by fooling people....... Quite simply there is no math that shows that Romney's $5 trillion tax cut can be revenue neutral by eliminating deductions just for the wealthy. It wil effect the middle class or swell the deficit to unprecedented levels....... Tax cuts for the wealthy simply have not delivered what we were told they would in the Bush Era. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Going BACK to the FAILED BUSH POLICIES MITT EMBRACES, WOULD BE A DISASTER FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS!
Carl Jensen October 30, 2012 at 07:00 AM
VOTE...IN YOUR FAMILIES BEST INTEREST....THERE IS ALLOT AT STAKE FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS....Romney/Ryan Rebublican Agenda basically proposes three big things: slashing Medicaid, cutting taxes on corporations and high-income people, and replacing Medicare with a drastically less well funded voucher system. These concrete proposals would, taken together, actually increase the deficit for the first decade and beyond. Mitt Romney said at the first debate, that he had a "plan" for health care that included pre-existing conditions and the next day his campaign said that was NOT correct. So, GOOD LUCK in finding an insurance company who accepts pre-existing conditions! This applies to EVERYONE...not just seniors!.... Not even the over 55 seniors are safe if Medicare is slowly starved of funding as Republicans plan to do..... VOTE…in your families BEST interest…We all know what it has been like for our families and friends, since 2008, when wall street recklessness and the banks crashed the economy. We just cannot go BACK to the FAILED Bush Policies that Romney embraces, that almost sent us into a Depression!
Gunnar Larson October 30, 2012 at 07:52 PM
For Christians and Jews ONLY … (We don’t impose our values on others) When you Vote – Make sure you don’t soil your hands with blood: A People that live under an absolutist regime are not responsible for the laws of their government. A People that live in a western style democracy are responsible for the laws of their government. Therefore, for a Christian or a Jew in the US not to vote is an act of direct rebellion against God. Furthermore, for a Christian or a Jew not to vote upholding justice (God’s Laws) is an act of direct rebellion against God. Therefore, voting for a politician or a political party that advocates ending a life that God has begun means that you have made (and kept) abortion the law of the land. You have chosen a government in direct rebellion against God. Therefore, the blood of each and every one of these little ones killed by abortion is on your hands! Finally through God’s Grace, there is forgiveness! – Just repent (right your wrong) and ask for forgiveness!
PaulRevere October 30, 2012 at 08:21 PM
Every one of you who are employed by the "Private sector" better hope the Health care law does not go into full mode on January 1st 2013. Your employer will need to make some big "employee retention" decisions as the cost of Health Care TAX could make your job expendable or reduced in hours. Many prices of products we buy will go up to help employers pay for the "Obamatax coming in 2013-2014. All medical devices will have an addtional 3.8% sales tax that will cost ALL $2,500 more in Medical Insurance. Don't be fooled, as your employer provided Health care premiums will be passed on to YOU! YOU will eventually PAY for this enormous Obama-Health-TAX. Your raises will be zero to pay for the additional Health TAXES. Ohio better make sure Obamacare never goes into full swing. VOTE --Romney-- He will stop Obamacare and perhaps SAVE YOUR JOB.
