Posted on 09/26/2012 6:08:23 AM PDT by DFG
Mitt Romney is getting a little help from a reality show star whose gig aligns perfectly with the candidate's prime directive.
It's all about the jobs, or the lack thereof in the Age of Obama.
Mike Rowe of "Dirty Jobs" fame will campaign with the GOP presidential hopeful starting tomorrow in the crucial state of Ohio.
The Discovery Channel personality and Ford Motor Co. pitchman will offer his support Wednesday to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a public event in Bedford Heights.
Romney's campaign announced the Rowe endorsement late Monday when confirming Romney's Cleveland-area itinerary for the final day of a two-day bus tour through battleground Ohio.

cool! I like his show(s)
he has brass ones for the stuff he is willing to take on- including a graphic description of neutering a sheep I heard him discuss- with the alternative meaning that it implied that government regulations were STUPID
I knew he was a conservative then
I knew I liked that guy, but couldn’t put my finger on exactly why. Now I know.
Does this mean that FOMOCO will drop him?
I’ve always liked Mike Rowe. I thought it would be fun if he were to start a software company. It would be Called “Mike Rowe Soft.”
Why? FOMOCO didn’t take a bailout. I think he’s an effective spokesman for Ford.
What an incredibly courageous guy. Of course, his career is now over. No one — but no one — is as bigoted as liberals.
Awesome news! Rowe is classy and smart as a whip.
Man, you would have to have to be a Conservative to have the work ethics Mike Rowe has, to go to that job every day, knowing what was in store. Show me a lib that would willing to do what he does day in and day out. None that I know would go to those lengths to get a paycheck.
Right, I know.
But... we have experienced “O’s” thug-school, monkeyshines in the past. We know he is small, malicious and petty .and he regards nothing and no one beneath his attention.
How wonderful it will be to have a real MAN in the WH again!
Yes but Obama has that class act Madonna “ We have a f-cking black muslum in the white house’ LOL
His dirtiest job to date. Get obama out of the WH!
To be fair I heard Rowe on the Bill Bennett show this morning. Bill asked him if this event was “an endorsement of Romney.” Rowe replied “No it is not.”
I always liked Mike, his interesting and entertaining show, and his self-deprecating humor. Glad to have another reason to like him.
He is also an Eagle Scout.
Hope not. Rowe is an Eagle Scout too. My boys are scouts and was thrilled when I could tell them that. Now I can brag to them about Rowe for another reason.
Noting the comment beneath the article about Rowe having written a letter to Romeny about skilled labor (Obama having been sent a similar letter and not responding) Would love to know more about that.
I know it’s early yet...but, you’ve got the “Comment of the Day” so far...
“His dirtiest job to date. Get obama out of the WH!”
You go, Mike! (Love him; he’s funny, talented, and nice looking.)
Cool! Love his show and even more glad now I bought a Ford truck a couple of months ago!
I encourage all of you who want to learn more about Rowe to find, download, and listen to the October 10, 2010 Adam Carolla podcast, where Adam and Rowe talk about the dignity and value of labor. It's awesome, and just the sort of tonic our nation needs in great big doses these days.
Mike Rowe has spoken in Congressional hearings about Vo-Tech schools and the shortage of skilled labor. He’s been involved for awhile.
They should team him with Paul Ryan...
(NOte that he only wrote to obama in 2008 AFTER the presidency was a done deal.
Never heard from ‘bama back - when here is a program that could rally help a lot of people, especially youth, who are not likely to ever find themselves with a PHD after their names - and/or can neither afford college and subsequent loans and need to support themselves NOW - and indeed, that college just isn't the answer for a lot of people. Even entrepreneurs, many brilliant people who drop out of college and pursue their own path to success.
Independence for a vast swath of people vs dependence on GOv’t - obama’s real message: “not interested”
His letter to ‘bambles is at the end of his article - NOTE: he ONLY wrote to ‘bambles AFTER he was in office, fait accompli.
He never got an answer.
Well, actually, he did. In answer to a proposal that could get tens of thousands of people into jobs - people not likely to go to college and that might otherwise end up on the dole?
‘bamble unstated answer: “NOT INTERESTED”
It's a wonder Rowe wasn't set upon by ‘bambles goons to shut him down.
Mike Rowe is one of those famous Eagle Scouts. In trying to encourage one of my scouts to learn to swim, even though he’s scared of the water, I told him my favorite scouting quote from Mike Rowe. “Scouting forces you to deal with your discomfort. It trains you to do the thing you don’t want to do. And over time, I found it does something else too. It trains you to like it.”
