Thursday: The Romneys Return

On Thursday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes the return of Mitt and Ann Romney, as the Republican Party's presumptive nominee for the 2012 election, and his wife, sit down with Piers Morgan at the Old Royal Naval College in London.

This week's face to face interview marks the former Massachusetts Governor's second appearance on the program, but first in more than a year.

In his previous visit, the 65-year-old Republican shared his perspective on everything from gay marriage to health care, and expect Thursday's discussion to be equally wide-ranging.

Now inside three months until America chooses it's next president, Romney and Morgan will likely discuss a potential vice president candidate, as well as the economy, and foreign policy.

Also, in advance of Friday's Opening ceremony at the London games, the former president and CEO of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games of 2002 will likely share his insight into this year's Games of the XXX Olympiad.

Tune in Thursday at 9 p.m. for a sit down interview with the couple who may be the next residents of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

      Romney is a flip flopper who supports the fire arm law. He is gun happy and will wage war killing innocent people and our service men and woman in uniform so he can be supported by the chosen lobby. Firearms are used for killing Romney.

        I agree completely, Piers Morgan, you're not an American who continually sides with and never interrupts those who wish to destroy this nation. GO BACK TO ENGLAND and get over the fact your people lost 2 wars to us, and 2 more you had to have us bail you out of losing!

      Really! Some of you people need to read what you write...... short bus anyone???? The reason why "alleged" people of Canada don't want gun's...... cause your cattle! You people w/ our Lib's will never understand freedom's and how this country came to be. Canada and other leftist whack jobs always want to knock guns..... well the US and pro gun patriots sure come in handy when you(rest of the world) need us..... WW1, WW2, etc.... How can a group people that pride them selves (allegedly) on being so smart.... actually think that guns are the root cause???? Soooo if I take a paper clip and poke you in the eye..... what.... we need to ban paper clips or a 10 day waiting period on purchasing them. UH!

      Tommy, Romney gives safe answers because he really doesn't have a strong view on anything. He will be what anyone wants him to be at any given time as long as it suits his benefits him. When running for Gov. of MA, he was pro gun regulations now he is against them, while Gov. of MA, he developed a mandatory, gov't run health care plan (which was used as the template for Obama's health care plan) and now criticizes Pres. Obama for that plan. I really cannot imagine Romney having the back bone to stand up to tough heads of state during this 6 day tour (or, God forbid, if he were to become president).

      This comment is for Piers. Mr. Romney defends his wealth and claims that the President is "knocking" success and that he's dividing the nation over wealth. This is not what it's about. He doesn't understand that what many of his critics are saying is that there is nothing wrong with working hard and becoming successful. That's the American dream. The problem is that many of the wealthy earned their wealth by manipulating those that have not. Your wealth, Mr. Romney, has been obtained off the backs of the poor and middle class. Closing factories and shipping them overseas, continued tax breaks and overseas tax havens. While the poor and middle class struggle to survive, Mr. Romney and his friends are looking for more ways to "stick it" to the poor/middle class so they can continue to live their rich lifestyles.

    You asked Micheal Moore why the Americans can't understand the need to control guns. AMERICANS are dumb F–Ks it is very very simple they are crazy about owning guns! Why I don't know!!! I grew up in Brooklyn NY in a duplex house but each owned by a different family. There were NO guns and NYC had laws against guns! NYC is made up of immigrants & maybe I am not an American I have a passport from The USA State Department. Piers the English say God save the Queen in the USA we need to say God save America from the GUN NUTS

      @Wake up – 5 million a year?? where do you get your info. 24 / day and 365 days equate out to less than 9,000 according to the report below. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-moore/its-the-guns-_b_1700218.html

      You are another Michael Moore or liberal informed person. Obviously.

    Gun Control: l Have some solutions we need to look at to make our families safer. 1. Doctors Psyche evaluation annually to be approved just to apply for a gun permit paid for by owner to get a gun. 2. Insurance on every weapon.and ammunition must have limits with gun filing number for each owner also paid by owners 3. Testing and gun permit number used to buy any weapons or ammo in a central country wide system also paid for by the gun owners. This testing would be just like getting a drivers permit with doctors approval and insurance approval and gun shooting test. These tests and requirements would be applicable based on similar restrictions and regulations of drivers. Temporary permits for one year and proof of insurance regulation. Lets stop talking and do something for our family's. Not to mention stiff penalties hitting the wallets of gun owners if any laps in coverage or testing failures apply.

    Please ask him why he does not consider himself a latino? Latino is a term used chiefly in the United States to refer to people of Latin American extraction or descent. He is the son of a Mexican born person. Why do he tags some person latinos when he does not? What makes him special?

    Have watched this show off and on, but I have decided to not watch it anymore!! Pierce is rude to his guest as an example the man last night that wrote the book of guns in America. Pierce doesn't want to here what he has to say and does not let him finish a sentence!! It's a shame that this show has turned into a more jerry springer and a information show.

    The interview this week of bomb-bomb-bomb McCain missed the primary question. Why did he select the unvetted Airhead Palin over the vetted airhead Romney? There had to be a reason that undoubtedly included his tax returns and his overseas accounts.so why is McCain supporting him now. It's obvious that McCain is a super hypocrite.another issue is his constant negativity over what this administration is doing in the middle east. If he had his way we would have 2 million troops spread all over the place like Yemen,Syria,Iran,Egypt,Sudan,Nigeria,etc.

    Please ask Romney one question-will all discussions with Netanyahu-yahoo be transparent or will there be secret meetings where secret deals are made? It is clear to me that Netan-yahoo intends to make Romney his stooge to interdict in the U.S. elections.this is due to the fact that Israel is just blustering about it's ability to take out Irans nuclear program without substantial help from the U.S. and our cruise missiles and our carriers to take out the total Iran power grid. The Israelies knew about this option several years before Bush/Cheney invaded Iraq.

    Any chance you can ask Mitt, "Mitt when you worked for Bain you purchased many companies. Did you ever buy a company that had been in business for decades if the owner told you he would only show you last years balance sheet and after the deal was sealed he would show you the current years balance sheet? Would you ever make a major decision to close on a company if you could not look at all of their records? Why should we expect less from you Mr Romney?"

      Piers- a interesting question for the Romneys is " How long hsve they been involved with training horses and raising them? You see, for us commoners,we have to show a profit in two years of a business. So my concern is that they have been illegally taking and deducting this expense foryears which is illegal.also, ask Romney what official training he has had in economics?

    I am anxious to see how many times Romney changed his position on issues during the interview. He has done a 180 on health care and gun control since his days as Gov. Piers, I am depending on you to call him on his unwarranted attacks on the President. I look forward to the interview.

    Re: The Colorado movie theater tragedy

    Since we all know that nothing will change in
    regards to the control of guns, let’s direct some
    conversation to other possible preventative measures.
    For instance, think what a different outcome
    if there had been a warning light and/or buzzer
    on an open door and a requirement for an employee
    to shut the door in order to cease the
    light and/or buzzer. In this case a tragedy
    would have been aborted.

    I’ll bet similar, simple suggestions could be heard
    if the public were invited to solve some of the
    potential hazards of this sort.
