Tonight: Condoleezza Rice

This evening, Piers Morgan sits down with Condoleezza Rice at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. After a rousing speech Tuesday night by Ann Romney that highlighted mothers and women, Rice talks to Morgan about Mitt Romney's lack of popularity among women and minority voters.

"What we have to do is - as a party - is to explain to people why these issues which are so prevalent among Americans in general also speaks to concerns for minorities and women." says Rice.

Rice suggests Americans look at the policies that are currently implemented under the Obama administration as a measurement for the government's success. "Ultimately, one has to ask are these policies that are helping America, and in particular, are they helping some of the most vulnerable among minorities, kids in failing schools, unemployed youth?"

"The policies aren't helping those constituencies," says Rice. "So I do think that Mitt Romney is speaking to black voters, [he] is speaking to women voters who hold many of the same concerns."

Tune in to CNN's primetime coverage of the RNC to see more of this interview then tune in to "Piers Morgan Tonight" live at midnight as Piers Morgan breaks down the speeches and looks ahead to Romney's big speech tomorrow.

    Rice is a war criminal and should be executed along with G.W. Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld.

        Killing is what the Republicans have done. Why don't you google and see how many of our young have been killed because of Bush's lies?
         How  many of our young have commit Suicide? 
        How many have had failed marriages? 
        How many are on drugs? 
        How many are waisting away in VA hospitals? 
        How many return home in body bag? ( That our media won't cover ) 
        How many innocent people all over the world have been killed because of Bush? 
        Please get some fact right. Bin Laden was a Saudi. All the terrorist were Saudis. 
        The Saudi's are best friends of the Bush's. 
        The Saudis are Whabi and of shoot of radical wickedness still funding terriosam.

    They lapdog media always mentions how Romney or the right in general arent liked by women and minorities. Maybe they could look at their own selves to explain why they always slant the story, ask gotcha questions, push their own liberal agenda. Maybe they could talk how the left buys the minority vote with handout programs, or they buy the latino vote with amnesty for illegal immigrants allowed to stay and suck on the economy. I am sure as long as their is a cnn, nbc or cbs these questions will never get a fair answer or a real story from the bloggers that work for them and call themselves "reporters"

      Well said. I always wonder where these negative talks against Romney and GOP in general came from. It is a widespread conspiracy engineered by the left news media who wants to help Obama for four more years.

        I t came from the GOP themselves. The media should be reporting at the GOP convention a African American camera woman had peanuts thrown on her and told this is what they serve animals. It seems that the GOP attracts the worst animals in the country.

    Condi asks a key question: "Ultimately, one has to ask are these policies that are helping America, and in particular, are they helping some of the most vulnerable among minorities, kids in failing schools, unemployed youth?" The majority of American voters will give it a resounding "NO". He failed, And now, he is trying to bribe them with tax dollars for four more years.

    Just as Obama concealed the true plans for his initial term behind rhetoric of ending partisan differences and cutting the federal deficit, Obama's re-election theme of creating jobs conceals more than it reveals about his real agenda for a second term: the "progressive" program to complete the fundamental transformation of America during the next four years.

    Obama's second-term plans call for a "New Deal"-style overhaul of the economy replete with the creation of a National Infrastructure Development Bank to oversee government control of the financial system; a massive, government-run jobs program to coincide with "paycheck fairness"; full amnesty for illegal aliens; defunding of the U.S. military while channeling Pentagon money to "clean" energy initiatives; a new, multibillion dollar "green" stimulus; and implementing Obamacare in measures nearly impossible to reverse. And that is just the start.

      Ok .... We know you lost your job. What makes you think your anger and biggotery will land your a job if Romney makes it to office ? You job will outsourced or you be sent to kill or be killed. Have you not been HEARING him ? Love your country first. Please nourish for your brain.... These are bad times regardless who is in office. It's a global world. Cool down and think right.

        Bottom line is ... calling a spade a spade! You have Obamacare looming. You have taxes expiring. You have a president clearly anti business, anti free-enterprise, believes NO ONE accomplishes anything without Big Government. A president's whose favorite past time is stirring the class-envy pot, a president who won't budge one iota on development of natural resources, a president whose latest fans are the lunatic’s from Iran and Venezuela, a president clearly doing a rendition of Tricky Dick's ‘duck & cover’ for his Watergate buddies, a president who encourages the Fed to print worthless money further devaluing an anemic dollar,....
        Don’t hold your breath people. This so-called recession is a slam-dunk to morph into a full-blown Depression if our Kenyan Socialist is re-elected. You surely WILL get what you ask for!

      Are u really that stupid and living in a bubble.? Mitt Romney is like Bush 3.0 that starts with another Cold War with Russia, more wars starting with Syria and Iran, outsource more jobs to China, more tax breaks for millionaires, and he will hide his money in one of his tax havens shelters.

    Here is an important finding of the House Judiciary Committee...

    Beginning in 2011, the Committee has learned that Obama administration officials at the Department of Homeland Security started to include numbers from the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP) in its year-end removal numbers.

    The ATEP is a joint effort between ICE and Customs and Border Protection that transfers illegal immigrants apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border to another point along the Southwest border for removal. But it is illegitimate to count illegal immigrants apprehended by the Border Patrol along the Southwest border as ICE removals. There are no penalties or bars attached when illegal immigrants are sent back via ATEP and they can simply attempt re-entry.

    When ATEP removals are subtracted from ICE’s deportation numbers, the 2011 removal total would drop from approximately 397,000 to roughly 360,000 and the 2012 removal total would drop from about 334,000 to around 263,000 (annualized this is estimated to be a drop from about 400,000 to 315,000).

    This means that ICE removals for this year will be about 14% below 2008 (369,000) and 19% below 2009 (389,000). So it is officially proven that while the Obama regime touts themselves as historic immigration enforcement achievers, the truth is they have cooked the books and broadcast this lie to the American public. They have done this with the full assistance of liberal media like CNN, ABC, and the Huffington Post which you can count on not to report the revelations contained within these reports!

    If anyone tells you that Obama has deported more illegal immigrants than any prior president you tell them that is a lie and that removals for 2012 are down 14% below 2008 levels before Obama took office!

    It is terribly unfortunate that American citizens have to form a political revolt against the powers that be to try to stop the invasion of our homeland. We must face powers that have used their influence to corrupt our own government and mass media against the best interest of the American public and against the truth.

    Very few things in America can improve for us while such lies as these stand as truth.

    Barack Obama:

    Alias Barry Soetoro pawns himself as Barack Obama, the humanitarian, the POTUS, the campaign for hope and change. But we know better. Barry is a radical Marxist who was raised by Communist parents and Communist grandparents. His mentors were known Communists, his contacts in college were strictly Marxists supporters, Marxist professors and a group of Pakistani activists as stated in his book, “Dreams from My Father”.

    Barack Obama, tell us about Frank Marshall Davis or Bill Ayers. Surely you remember Mr. Davis. After all, your mother knew him all too well. Mr. Ayers, a known terrorist, responsible for at least a dozen bombings, helped your early Illinois campaign by raising money, thru his organization Underground Weather. Tell us about your trip to Pakistan (’81) with Pakistani Wahid Hamid.

    Share with us your ideals of socialism; after all you’re a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), referred as the “New Party”. Please tell us why you have been influenced by the writings of Karl Marx, the prelude to Communism. Share with us your association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Do you justify this man’s message by condemning our country by saying, “God bless America? No, God Damn America?” Was this a forethought supporting your belief in Marxism?

    Are these the individuals who have inspired you to public office? Are these the individuals who have inspired you to plot against the United States? Are they the people for whom you’ve entrusted your Muslim faith?

    Please tell us why you mocked the Holy Bible and Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount”, calling the sermon a radical message. You have mocked Christianity and this country. Barack Obama, you have betrayed this nation and all its’ people. Your skin is dark because of your race, but your soul is darker because of your deception.

    United States of America………………you didn’t build it Barack Obama.

      Fath is only paper $$$$$$ ? Wake up and educate your self. Your country became bankrupt by Bush. He lied to your people while still supporting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The terrorist were funded by funded Saudi Arabia and came from Saudi Arabia, trained in United States. We are still supporting this Evil country that spreads only hate with there wealth. Who do you think is funding the Talabans?
      The Whabies are against the the root core of the Muslim faith. Whabies are only found in Saudia Arabia.
      We need to stop bickering and become more united. Our nightmare started by the Bush family.

    Don't waste your time asking Condoliza Rice on Romney. She truly wants Obama to stay President. It's not about Republicans against Democrats. She just feels happy to see Obama President. After all she is free. But we are not stupid to believe her saying that she wants Romney to be a President. No way! We can see it from the tone of her speech.

    It is a shame that Former Secretary State Rice is now recognizing that black men are out of work. We are black but we are not stupid or dull, black men were displaced from their jobs while she and the Republicans were in office. The black men were out of their jobs when the influx of illegal Hispanic men took all their jobs for pennies. Who are replacing the black men? Miss Rice should take a tour around D.C and Maryland roads and bridges and see who are the men working on the government contracted jobs, we tax payers are paying the illegal immigrants to work on our roads and bridges. The contracts are given to contractors who intern refused to hire our black men.

    We are not stupid or ignorant to believe that the Democrats just want to hand out dole, the Republicans got us into this mess for eight years. What do they want? Obama to clean up eight years of mess, they Republicans did not want to be involved four years ago, this is why they elected John McCain to run against Obama. The Republican stated that they will make Obama a one term President, that is why they block every proposal President Obama put on the table. Mr Romney should take some of his millions and help the poor people. All the jobs were sent overseas by these big company in order to evade taxes.

    Happy Father's Day Dad! Your abundant taelnts and creativity are obvious! Isn't it great that we have an open democracy that allows for opposing views to be examined in the public square. We need opposing views to help us avoid emotionalized group think and collective sanctimony whether on the right or the left! President Obama should be given a little slack. Democracy shouldn't be about competing labels, but rather about the civil clash of ideas. Not every one who disagrees with some of President Obama's policies disagree with him because they are racists! This experiment called America is bigger than partisan bickering and name calling. Long live the dialectic of democracy!
