Piers Morgan was live tonight with the latest on the two big news stories: Pres. Barack Obama's speech on jobs and the "specific, credible but unconfirmed" terror threat. "This group is dangerous, they are committed to further attacks on the United States," said Sen. Jeff Sessions. "I'm hopeful that we'll be successful in following up on these leads."
And of the job speech: "In the long run, the President failed tonight to look the American people in the eye and tell them that we are in a dangerous problem, and the greatest problem is the debt."
President Barack Obama will unveil the "American Jobs Act" tonight in a joint session of Congress at 7pmET – we'll be live at 9pmET/PT as "Piers Morgan Tonight" continues the jobs conversation.
Joining Piers Morgan will be Rep. Ron Paul, Sen. Jeff Sessions, Valerie Jarrett, Christina Romer, Dave Ramsey and more. Tune in live at 9pmET/PT.
Piers Morgan interviewed New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman last night on "Piers Morgan Tonight," and GOP presidential primary frontrunner Rick Perry came up. "Rick Perry's state is on fire," said Friedman of Perry's views on global warming. "It's now experiencing the worst wildfires in its history, which fits in exactly with the predictions of climate change...it's actually happening under his nose, climate change, and he's denying it."
Friedman also discussed the possibility of Perry winning in 2012. "It's scary to me," he said.
Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.
