Well, Ford told Barry Soetoro to stuff it, so Mike should be fine with them. I get the impression Mike just doesn’t care & does what he thinks is best. He is a very smart man.

Hey, CC - thanks for reminding us about that episode. I think that is the first time I ever saw the Dirty Jobs show — being here in the Mitten, it caught my eye.

Well good for him. Glad to know he’s on our side. I like the guy.

I mean Mike Rowe, not Romney.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again......some of the smartest people I know don’t have a college degree but have good old common sense and some of the dumbest people I know are ones with college degrees....2 of them in my own family. The latter couldn’t pour pee out of a boot with the directions wrote on the bottom.

Very wise. Our long-time mechanic owns a bustling little garage and is rumored in the community to be a millionaire.

To the article-—I’m glad to see it. I like Mike Rowe. He’s always seemed like a regular person to me. And he sho ain’t no metrosexual.

He sang for the Baltimore Opera and got his start in TV on the QVC network.
Rowe has hosted Your New Home for WJZ in Baltimore, Worst Case Scenarios for TBS, On-Air TV for American Airlines, The Most for The History Channel.

lol,, you think he really cares what FORD thinks ?
He can have his own show now, and he must have made enough money to be well off now.
I bet if he had his own late night talk show he would do well.

Boeing's guy Alan Mulally seems to have turned FORD motor co around.
Don't know if he's a Republican or Democrat but heard he's a devout Christian.

I am afraid Dummies are going to raise a stink and threaten to boycott. But obviously, Mike has thought that through and doesn’t care. Good for him!

His observation is brilliant and dead-on.

These skilled labor jobs are no longer points of pride but are shuffled off to immigrants, legal and illegal, because too many Americans have fallen in love with the idea of the idle desk job and frivolity.

There's also the attitude that the only "real work" involves sitting at a computer. I encounter that at tech sites and it's deplorable.

"Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth." Eph 4:28, (bold mine)

At Post 9 you can see a link to the open letter Mike Rowe wrote to Romney after the Tampa convention and a letter he wrote to Obama back in 2009 which, evidently, was ignored.

I would be bored sitting at a desk job... give me a backhoe operator or stream roller job anyday.

Hub and I do too. I especially like the paper towel commercials with his parents. They’re soooo funny!

Wouldn’t it be great if the Deadliest Catch crews came out for Mitt?

Talk about a shot of testosterone!

Politics is a Dirty Job but someone’s gotta do it! Mike Rowe is trying to protect and promote the jobs that do keep us all working.

From ostrich farming to cleaning storm drains this key “endorsement.” Mike Rowe has picked up a shovel and used it many times. Obama, where’s your shovel? Oh right you don’t have one.

I’m not worrying about Hollywood Types. Mike Rowe made his own success. He’s nobody’s lap dog. Discovery will keep him on as long as “Dirty Jobs” and “Deadliest Catch” bring in the bucks.

And they keep on bringing in the dollars. Wonder where Les Stroud and Bear Grylls lean on this?

I knew I liked Mike Rowe now I know why....Not because he likes Mitt but because he doesn’t like the Kenyan
