Seriously, its those small busines millionaires that Obama wants to increase taxes on that provide the bulk of those important labor jobs. Yeah big wigs will get hit with the tax too, but they have the money to offset the tax by donating more to charities for a writeoff. Small business owners including farmers don't always have that luxury. Romney understands how economics work, Obama doesn't.

Mike knows a lot about cleaning up dirty messes.... like the mess our economy is in with Obama.

Kearns, UT

Now that is a 'Dirty Job' trying to help Romney clean up his image after flip floppin so many times, people forget what the question is.

re: Hawko
You say the term "small business millionaires" in mockery, but in reality there are quite a few of them. Small business is determined by number of employees. Many law firms, medical practices, and accounting firms qualify as small business. They're definitely not all millionaires, but there's more of them than you think.

I also like how Mike Rowe is campaigning with Mitt the same day CNN is running an interview where he acknowledges that without a beer, he would have never have made it where he is today.

@ my view 2. No more fliping or flopping that Obama has done to win votes! I can give volumes of things Obama has said and done to be a flip flop. Were as Romney may have changed his views on things to be more conservitive points and I hope people understand it is ok to change you way of thinking. but then again my view 2 I bet you never ever ever changed you mind on anything and that nothing will ever change it. your so rock solid stuborn that nothing will ever impress youu enought to change the way you see things in the world. other wise your a Flip Flopper!

Mike row's contrabution to Mitt will have a positive impact for Mitt.

Well, Madonna is easier on the eyes but not very predictable. I suppose Rowe will be a bit more articulate.
At the end of the day celebrity endorsements are no more valid than people chosen ramdonly from the phone book.

Mike Rowe, 2012's Joe the Plumber.

Las Vegas, NV

How that ...one very experienced guy embraces another extremely experienced Mitt. As for Mr. Campaign in chief...extremely inexperience!

Happy Valley Heretic
Orem, UT

In his dirtiest job yet, helping the GOP convince America that the policies of the Bush Admin will work this time?
...and that mit has a plan besides "emergency rooms."


This should push Mitt over the top.... What is this campaign doing with there press releases, do they think this is a boon? If so there in real trouble.

Cache county, USA

Thanks mike!
Romney 2012!

Maricopa, AZ

So happy heretic, you're saying that Obama adm. has only created a clean clear vision for the future of America? So clear that his economoc plan was turned down by every vote taken?
And you want 4 more years of that.
I suspect even Mike wouldn't offer to clean up the mess that Obama will leave after another 4 years.

Centerville, UT

How about that. An advocate for the blue collar worker NOT endorsing Obama, but Romney. Smart man.

Alpine, UT

Just another example of one candidate in touch with the average American, and the other out of touch. Mitt is a true leader of the people, leading by example.

Durham, NC

Well there you go. First Clint Eastwood..... now the Dirty Jobs guy... if they will just secure the endorsement of Joe the Plumber.... I am changing my vote.

Now if Obama gets the Jersey Shores crowd to endorse him.... that would change things back again....

Good grief.... this is silliness personified.

Kaysville, UT

Mike Rowe might be a good Secretary of Labor.

Provo, UT

I agree with Mike Rowe 100%! As a retired educator, I have seen too many of our higher education institutions eliminate a number of skilled labor training programs.

Many of the skilled trade positions pay more than four-year degrees.

Governor Romney will not find a more common sense guy than Mike Rowe to be in his corner.


OHBU, do you have a reading comprehension deficiency? I used no mockery in my post. I know dozens of small business owners who on paper and thus on their taxes qualify as millionaires, but they can't afford to have their taxes raised and keep their business profitable and competitive. Obama either doesn't understand that the bulk of our economy stems from these "rich" people or (even scarier) he does understand this and wants to cripple our economy to bring about his progressive reformation of America. He may not be evil, but his plans will bring about the evil destruction of the freedoms we take for granted in this country.
