Clips From Last Night: Frank Rich on Obama's job speech and America post-9/11

Piers Morgan interviewed New York Magazine columnist Frank Rich last night, and he talked about the debate around when President Barack Obama would make his jobs speech. "It's amateur night," said Rich. "It does make him look weak...That speech really better be dynamite."

Rich also discussed America post-9/11:

Said Rich: "In almost every conceivable way, America is worse off, and the tragedy is at the time Bush gave that speech the country was really united...it was all squandered."

    I thoroughly enjoyed Frank Rich and his comments last night on Piers Morgan. In regards to Rich's comments on the GOP field ( Please CNN post this portion of the video from last night) he went down the GOP line and was right on the money on his opinions of the candidates. I am a new Republican since 2008 ( I was forever an Independent but moved for McCain in 2008) and I personally do not see Rick Perry as a viable candidate, he is too far on the right for my taste, and he will not attract the Independents or disenchanted Democrats. Rich called Perry a Tea Party candidate – and he is right. A Tea Party candidate won't beat Obama. The task of the Republican party in 2012 is to look at the big picture – who can beat Obama, not who can cause a tingling up one's leg (Chris Matthews on Obama). The one man who Obama would fear jumping in the race is the man who won 58 million votes in 2008, losing by ony 4% in an election cycle that did not favor any Republican candidate. John McCain (sans Palin, who did not help his campaign in 2008 except with the far-right, and we all know the Independents didn't go for her so they voted Obama) would beat Obama in 2012- that's if he would run! A McCain – Giuliani ticket has already gained some momentum here in California. Its simple mathematics – they win in 2012! John McCain needs to run!!!!

    I'd like to see an interview concerning the obvious. "The hatred and disrespect of the GOP toward the President and the office of the Presidency."
    Being the first African American president of this country shows us just how far the Republican Party would go to see that this never happens again.

      Right you are! These are the same people who voted for George Wallace for President in 1972. The same people who gave us Prohibition! La plus ça change la plus la même chose.

    I have to admit I have not watched very many interviews by Mr Morgan. The ones I did see were mainly with Hollywood celebrities and I found the interviews interesting and Mr Morgans questions and comments quite good.
    I watched the recent Frank Rich interview and I was quite disappointed in Mr Morgans followups to the comments by Mr Rich. Perhaps its because this is CNN and the on screen personnel are expected to toe the left wing line. I would think with political interviews more in depth followup questions by Mr Morgan (rather than just agreeing with everything) would make for a much more interesting program and maybe even help the ratings.
    Mr Rich commented on the lack of experience with many of the GOP candidates. But virtually all have more experience than Mr Obama. He was in the senate a short time, voted on vertually nothing and was a community organizer. This is experience?
    Mr Rich brought religion into the candidate equation. Mr Obama spent 20 years attending a church that preached hate about white people and America. His religion was not a concern when he was a candidate. Why is this now relevant?Because a candidate believes in the Bible (the basis for our legal system and the founding of this country) he is somehow out of the mainstream?
    Mr Rich said gay marriage is accepted by the people based on the number of states that have approved it. Mr Morgan, you agreed. Gay marriage has only been implemnented by political or judicial means. In every state that has allowed the people to vote, gay merriage has been soundly defeated. It has not been accepted by THE PEOPLE.
    Mr Morgan, how about responding with intelligent followup questions to obviously false or questionably accurate statements by your guests. It will make for a much more interresting program and one that is more likely to attract viewers.

      I never put it together, and I did the hmoework too. The fact is, I didn't get an opportunity to talk to a birthmother who was significantly out of placement. I spoke to a girl who was a year out, and have since met Birthmom's online. Just be aware that you are at a risk for PTSD and Post Partum Depression! All these things I wish I had known!

    Frank Rich is a JOKE ! He says that Sarah Palin won't be president because she does not have the experience and then goes on to say that the republicans use that argument against Obama but they can't anymore because he has had 15 months experience now ! Are you kidding me ??? People listen to this guy ??

    I have just watched the final episode of the Celebrity Apprentis USA, and used to think Piers was not a very nice person, but after watching him on this progrsm it turns out he is a really decent human being. His job was to get as much money for his charity no matter how he did it and was bullied by most of the people there, but showed that graet british spirit to win and put all those people in there place, well done Piers we british are proud of you.

      You sound like a FOX News patriot. I guess Bill O'Reily, or Hannity seems pleasant. That means Rush should be president right. I think Pier Morgan does what most CNN commentators don't do, and that is dig or grind for the TRUTH.

    How can America be made better when the only agenda that the GOP has is to bring down the president. If they were concerned about the economy they would support the fair taxes proposed as well as the jobs plan and not try to attach so many social issues to it. Let women make decisions over their own bodies and get the roads and bridges fixed. Religion is a choice. If we don't want government in our religion, then don't accept government funding;...

      If you are the vcitim, any crime is a hate crime. After all, have you ever been the vcitim of a love crime or a respect crime?It goes without saying that crimes against people convey hate, disrespect and intolerance. Interestingly, it seems to be the folks who claim to promote tolerance who are the least tolerant of any point of view that differs from their own. Political zeal is not an excuse for poor behavior. Personal behavior by any individual carries with it personal responsibility for the consequences.

    Но, тем не менее, фильм довольно-таки интересен. Есть несколько очень интересных моментов. Самый лучший из них, я считаю – это хор отрубленных голов в отеле. Как они поют! И как это показано! Очень рекомендую посмотреть хотя бы этот момент. Я считаю, что это лучшая сцена фильма. Кстати, возможно, что и одна из лучших сцен во всех упомянутых на этой странице фильмов! Вот здесь-то, кстати, и проявляется черный юмор во всей красе. И это, кстати, пиковое, т.е. максимальное проявление черного юмора в этом фильме. Да, было еще несколько очень интересных моментов. Приколен эпизод, когда одну из голов "для подмены" во время переезда в микроавтобусе узнали – реакция водителя (приятеля главного героя) и их похитителя. Когда с бабушкой расстались – реакция мамы. Тоже черная комедия, ничего не скажешь.

    Can I simply just say what a relief to uncover somebody who actually knows what they are discussing over the internet.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people have to look at this and understand this
    side of your story. It's surprising you aren't more popular because you certainly possess
    the gift.
