So an opera singer/TV show host endorses a fellow rich guy. Shocking.
 
2012-09-26 10:38:46 AM  
Well, supporting Romney IS dirty job after all.
 
2012-09-26 10:39:51 AM  
And here I though it was because fixing Romney's hardware or working for him was a dirty job.

That's a damn lie!

Mitt Romney inherited only SOME of his money. He made the rest through creating jobs in China by closing profitable American factories because they weren't profitable enough

He should do an episode where he's Romney's campaign manager.
 
2012-09-26 10:48:47 AM  
Well, I was going to say I had lost respect for Rowe, but he seems to be playing chess, so we'll just have to see what he says during the event with Romney.

Rowe made headlines this month for an open letter he wrote to Romney, seeking a "national conversation" on skilled labor and "about what we value in the workforce." Rowe opened the letter by pledging to vote for Romney if he read the whole thing. A campaign aide later Tweeted a photo of Romney reading the letter.

King Something: Mitt Romney inherited only SOME of his money


Yeah! He started with nothing but a mid-sized pile of money, a bunch of stocks and his father's Rolodex.

Tuna and noodles, man!

Dangit. I liked Mike Rowe. Like, seriously thought he was a stand up guy.

Now I know better. Oh well.

And then I read this post:

And....okay. Maybe. I'll reserve judgement fora bit here and see where this goes.

Seems he's getting what he wants as far as that goes, and his vote won't go far in California!

Uh, no. What kind of idiot makes a pledge like that? Boo. I now no longer can fantasize of getting lost in Mike Rowe's bushy chest mane. Ok one last time, for old time's sake-

Is he really supporting him in earnest or is this going to be an episode on his show?
I think this would be worse than squeezing poop out of chicks.

(I mean avian chicks, not women, although that would be a really dirty job too.)
 
2012-09-26 11:13:16 AM  
I can see the blue collar skilled tradesman buying into the republican image. They are small businessmen, some of the products and materials they use can be restricted by the government, pex piping, for instance. And they are usually white dudes who drive gas guzzling trucks or vans.
 
2012-09-26 11:15:12 AM  
Considering Romney's track record of shipping jobs overseas and bankrupting companies, and considering Obama's track record of trying to save jobs in places like Detroit and Ohio where Romney would have allowed them to die, you kind of have to wonder about Rowe's decision and whether or not he's simply trolling the Romney campaign.

If he's not pulling some sort of stunt, Mike Rowe has pretty much abandoned the blue-collar, American worker class that he built a career out of exploiting.

Hi, I'm Mike Rowe. Today on "Dirty Jobs" I'm going to help these cute Asian children make iPads for Mitt Romney's 1% 'merikuh.
Alright, kiddies - Let's start assembling- *SLAP* 
Dammit! Who's the dickhead with the whip? *SLAP*
The production manager? *SLAP* *SLAP*

This sucks.

This is a job security issue for him. Someone needs to clean up all of the crap the Romney campaign is dumping on America.
 
2012-09-26 11:30:47 AM  
That's a quality headline, but I would have gone with a different angle.

Something about Rowe getting his hands dirty and wading into a cesspool of filth.
 
2012-09-26 11:38:26 AM  
Why do I get the feeling his next dirty job is going to be shoveling dancing horse sh*t?

Huh. So he's supporting the candidate that did the most to directly address what he views as a key issue. That makes sense. WHAT IN THE F*CK IS GOING ON?
 
2012-09-26 11:47:52 AM  
That's all it takes to get his vote? Reading a letter? So Romney could and likely will ignore the entire thing, but he read it and that's all it takes?

Hell, at least make him read 50 shades if grey before you give it up.
 
2012-09-26 11:54:16 AM  
When did we as a nation begin to give a shiat what minor TV celebrities thought about politics and politicians?
 
2012-09-26 11:54:28 AM  
The only reason Rowe is doing it is because Romney apparently read the same letter Rowe sent Obama four years ago.

What Rowe hasn't realized is that Mitt isn't interested in the kinds of jobs Rowe highlights each week. Those are "laborers," and besides telling them how they should live their lives, Mitt and the GOP would want absolutely nothing to do with them.

Rowe also needs to realize that the working world is different now. Some jobs have gone and are never coming back. They are not needed anymore. It is a different job environment.

Well, the way he's planning to address it is by hiking taxes on that bunch of freeloaders so he can lower his own. But it is something to address it, I suppose.

He didn't inherit his money as much as he inherited his dad's power. The money came later.

"The Discovery Channel personality and Ford Motor Co. pitchman"

Ah, there it is. Wanna bet this has nothing to do with political preference and everything to do with appeasing a corporate sponsor? Just keep those endorsement checks coming (preferrably in a more reliable vehicle than a Ford, please)!
 
2012-09-26 12:28:40 PM  
Who is predominantly on his show?

1) White
2) Working Class
3) Low educational attainment
4) Only jobs they can get are ones no one wants to do

Methinks he may just be pandering to his audience.

I think Jodie Foster read all those letters I sent her, so I'm voting for her....

This could be interesting. Rowe appears to be well educated, as he does occasionally drop references to philosophers and literature.
 
2012-09-26 12:30:14 PM  
I just see this as something that I could have a deep conversation with him on, if I ever got the chance to meet him. This doesn't do anything to lower my respect for him, though it was a bit surprising.

I am not sure that is the audience. Remember, people also watch reality shows to feel better about their station in life. I haven't had to work a dirty-ass labor job in years and so I would consider watching this show to thumb my noses at those people, if not for the fact I'm also too good to watch reality shows.
 
2012-09-26 12:31:19 PM  
Meh. it bothers me more when someone I know says they're voting for Romney.
