Still I take my hat off to anyone, whether Meat Loaf or Eastwood, who is brave enough to go against the status quo, to face the inevitable ridicule and demeaning comments and give voice to their conscience.
The stars express themselves in different ways. Bruce Springsteen has no reported contributions, but has performed at Obama rallies. Country star Trace Adkins has entertained at Romney events.
Actor Morgan Freeman and Bill Maher each gave $1 million to the super PAC supporting the president. We don’t find any celebrity contributors (other than billionaires) to the major Romney super PAC.
The list below shows people who have publicly endorsed each candidate or contributed to his campaign or super PAC.
Courteney Cox Arquette
Harry Connick Jr.
Robert De Niro
Robert Downey Jr.
Timothy C. Draper
Vivica A. Fox
David Hyde Pierce
Leslie Lewis Sword
Donnie & Marie Osmond

This eye-opening video of interviews with Romney's supporters at an Ohio rally has some footage of the Meatloaf endorsement, and his version of America The Beautiful.
It's a fun watch.
That has to be one of the most depressing eight and half minutes I have seen this year. We see a lot of older, confused and scared white Americans, looking for someone or something to blame. People died for the right to vote that we now take for granted, and here we find people at a Romney rally who cannot credibly articulate why they will be supporting his candidacy. And for the young people interviewed, the decline of our educational standard has never been more evident. Sad, sad, sad.
Holy sh&t that video is scary, depressing and does not speak well for the people interviewed. Education is key. An uninformed electorate will do and say things that makes absolutely no sense. This video is proof of that. I hope that despite all the obstacles the President faces, that he is re-elected on Tuesday. If it was up to the rest of the world, he would be re-elected in a heartbeat...but it is up to the citizens of the USA...and I really don't know what Tuesday will bring.
