READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
With the second presidential debate now roughly 24 hours away, this evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes four of the five sons of Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
Joined face to face by Craig, Tagg, Josh, and Matt Romney, Piers Morgan plays a video clip of FOX's "New Girl," during which a fictitious Romney brother – "Tugg" – is introduced.
"We took a vote, we want to replace him," says Josh Romney of his real brother Tagg. "That guy ["Tugg"] looks like more fun."
As their father has recently enjoyed a boost in the national polls, Morgan asks his guests if they've begun to entertain the idea of moving into the White House.
"To borrow a sports cliche, we're taking it one day at a time," insists Craig Romney. "We honestly are."
In decisively outperforming Barack Obama in the first debate, Tagg says America finally got a good look at a man he thinks is suited to lead the nation:
"All of us have been on the trail a lot the last couple weeks, and there was a dramatic uptick in enthusiasm, as people got to see who the real Mitt Romney is, and see how good of a person he is."
As inside information points to the incumbent adopting an intensified, more combative approach for Tuesday's event, Matt expects his father to be ready:
"My dad's very good. He's got an incredible intellect. He's has great principles, he knows his ideas. He's been prepared, we were tough as teenagers, but really, he'll do a good job. I think it's going to be a good debate. I think my dad is certainly someone who's very witty and intelligent."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in at 9 to hear how the Romney brothers react when compared to "New Direction" and described as a "political boy band."

"Aly in his prime and Obama?? You must have seen it pierse, when Cooper put Aly on the Canvas, and the bell was delayed for 20seconds"
"Mitt Romney will never attract 'Black Women' to his side. As for the rest of women, it's going to change!"
"But of course Mitt Romney kids drink beer. They're his kids and not Mitt himself. Obama does nothing but invite heis friend for a beer??"
Did I just heard one of his sons said that "It doesn't matter." to the question regarding women's right?
Pierce, I wonder why President Obama has'nt been a guest on your show. Your british ascent only goes but so far during your interviews are not always that humorious when your trying to give an american point of view.
Shheeee, piers dosent know hes not american
Im curious when piers mentioned how apple could take a hit and bring back jobs to america that he didnt ask martha the same as she was a little business and now all her products are made over seas by cheap labor, So asking insider prison martha for a soultion is like asking bernie madoff with all the cash like martha has been doing aswell.
Romney's already history...it's written in the future!
Goodbye Mitt..."You are the "Weakest Link"!
"Why is it nobody in the USA can't see things like I do?? Of course Obama was left with a mess when he was elected, it was precisely the reason Obama was going to win that caused that drop. It happened in England when Harold Wilson took over from Ted Heath. They pulled the investments out within days!"
Mitt Romney kids changed his thoughts on Aborsions. He not only has all those sons he now has their wives in his life.
Mitt Romney is a member of the Church Of JESUS CHRIST of Latter Day Saints he is a Christian. We believe in Christ, he is the head of our church. Mormon is a nickname that people call us.
Why is it Obama supporters are always so ANGRY? I don't like it. I am an independent and that really turns me away. Your last guest, a black man who was supporting Obama was actually scary the way he talked.
what scared you-the truth?-you didn't notice how argumentative piers was vs how he drooled over the romney boys-no bias ? please-what an obvious attack against President Obama this interview was-You are an independent what?Romney is against womens rights ! Perhaps you are too!
You are listening to the lies Obama is peddling. Mitt is not against women's rights, but he is pro life. More important issues facing this country besides birth control and abortion. People are out of work, starving and you are worried about birth control.
Very upset with you Piers, the Romney Boys did not answer your question about abortion, and you let them get away with it, so not like you !!!!
He is pro life. What else do you want to know.
f off! guess you also support guns then! not so pro life
Piers, you really should have decided not to have had Martha Stewart on your show tonight. The entire interview reeked of hypocrisy. Do you not know that her products are all made in china. "Somethings clearly gone fundamentally wrong with the american business model?" was your question, and she has the audacity to sit there on your show and say that it's because manufacuring went where labor was cheap, plentiful, and there were hard workers. Well there are plenty of hard workers here so that takes care of the last 2 problems so the real problem for all those rich people ("job creators") is the CHEAP part. That is the problem with the american business model. Why only make 20c on the dollar when we can ship jobs over seas and make 80c on the dollar. "Greed" Martha Stewart is hooked on it and it is disgusting to have her host anything called American Made!
What a ridiculous interview of these "boys" piers has been drooling over the romney family in every interview he has done with them-I think he has the hots for ann-all mormons give 10%-that is nothing out of the ordinary-so that does not make romney "principled" I guess romenys chuch can tax him but not his country? Piers why don't you stfu-WOMEN loved Biden We don't want to go back to having our rights taken away-why don't you go back to England-couldn't get on TV there? You are a very egotistical-biased-ignorant interviewer-The way you fawned over the romney boys was putrid-as are you!
Wow Jody...what a vitriolic rant. Mitt Romney's sons are actually quite charming. I enjoyed seeing Piers' interview. It was fun, upbeat and entertaining. There's something refreshing about seeing people with differing points of view actually getting along and laughing together without spewing hate and getting contentious. It is beyond me how a person could watch the exchange between Piers and the Romney sons, as jovial as it was, and not appreciate the good will in it!
The only way woman will loose there rights is if they move to pakistan otherwise your all being fear mongored by the librael media and need to stfu and just watch MSLSD for your info.
OPEN ALL OF YOUR EYES AND USE THE BRAIN GOD GAVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!! APPARTENTLY NO ONE EVER WATCHES ANYTHING COPLETELY THROUGH, BECAUSE IF THEY DID AND THEY LIVE IN THIS COUNTRY YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING THE LAST FOUR YEARS AS MY FAMILY AND I HAVE AND WE HAVE A TWO HOUSEHOLD INCOME THAT HAS NOT INCREASED IN THOSE YEARS BUT WE HAVE INCREASED GAS, UTILITIES, HEALTHCARE AND FOOD THAT TAKES IT ALL FROM PAYDAY TO PAYDAY AND THAT'S BECAUSE WE SUPPORT OUR DAUGHTER( WHOM CAN'T FIND A JOB GOING ON TWO YEARS) AND HER TWO CHILDREN . OH YEA, THAT $600 STIMUS WE GOT FOR AWORKING MARRIED COUPLE, WHEN WE FILED OUR TAXES THERE WAS THE QUESTION ' DID YOU GET THE $600 DEDUCTION, AND WHEN YOU ANWSERED YES, THEY TOOK IT BACK RIGHT THEN. SO THERE WAS NOTHING GIVEN TO US! OH AND BY THE WAY i'M A FIFTY THREE YEAR OLD FEMALE WHO STARTED WORK AT AGE SEVEN IN THE COTTON FIELDS AND CONTINUED IN THE MANUFACTURING COMPANY UNTIL NAFTA WAS PASSED AND ALL THE JOBS WENT OVER SEAS, THEN I WENT TO COLLEGE AND OBTAINED AN R.N. DEGREE AT THE AGE OF 35 YEARS AND THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF OBOMA IN OFFICE I WAS UNEMPLOYED FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS. THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IS ABOUT OUR COUNTRY AS A WHOLE AND OUR LIVELYHOOD. I BELIEVE IN HELPING OTHERS HELP THEMSELVES AND THE AMERICAN DREAM. I WAS BORN IN A RECESSION AND I VE LIVED THROUGH TWO NOW AND THIS IS THE WORST!!!!!!!!! AND I DON'T JUDGE ANYONE ELSE FOR THEIR BELIEFS, EXCEPT WHEN IT AFFECTS ME. I 'M A WOMAN AND WE HAVE MORE RIGHTS TODAY THAN WE EVER HAVE, BUT NOT BECAUSE OF OBOMA, BECAUSE WE ALL AVE WORKED FOR THAM THROUGH THE YEARS. ROMNEY IS A GOD FEARING MAN WHO HAS THE SKILLS THAT HE WORKED FOR THROUGH THE YEARS AND HE WILL PLAY BY THE RULES. THIS MAN NOW DESERVES TO BE PRESIDENT TO HELP OUR COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!! OBOMA HAS HAD HIS TIME AND ITS TIME FOR HIM TO MOVE ON!!!!!!!!!!!! CHANGE EQUALS GROWTH AND NOTHING WILL GROW WITHOUT CHANGE. I WANT MY DAUGHTER AND GRANCHILDREN TO HAVE THAT CHANCE AND ITS NOT HAPPENING WITH OBOMA.. O AND CNN I 'VE ALWAYS WATCHED YOU, HOWEVER I WAS SICKENED AND I DO MEAN SICKENED BY THE FAVORTISM YOU ARE SHOWING THE PRESIDENT.IF YOU ARE GOING TO SHOW THE FACTS AND THE TRUTH, SHOW ALL OF THE SPEECH AT THE WHITE HOUSE LIKE FOX DID. I USUALLY WATCH YOU, BUT I HAD TO JUMP STATIONS TO SEE WHO WOULD BE TELLING THE TRUTH. YOU KNOW WE AMERICANS ARE NOT STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE HAVE GOOD MEMORIES ALSO AND TO KEEP ME WATCHING NIGHTLY AS I HAVE FOR YEARS YOU NEED TO START TELLING THE TRUTH!! IT HAS BEEN PLAIN AS DAY FOR MONTHS THAT FOR SOME REASON YOU ALL, AND I MEAN ALL ARE FOR THE PRESIDENT. I THOUGHT ALL OF YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO REPORT BOTH SIDES OF THE STORIES, BUT I FORGOT, ITS MONEY, GREED, AND THE RATINGS RIGHT. PROVE ME WRONG FROM NOW ON, I WOULD LOVE TO WATCH ALL OF YOU REPORT HONESTLY. GOOD LUCK!!
Thank you. Somebody finally gets it, and I believe their are millions more like us. Romney 2012
You all voted Obama in 2008 to help you get rid of the mess of the Bush years, Dubya left you lot with so much mess that for a few decades to come u would still be asking yourselves how y'all got into the type of mess you are in. Romney IMHO offers you the opportunity of having it much worse in years to come while BO offers you a way out with a human face attached to his modalities of his solutions.
Mitt has always been a rich guy and his lack of sensitivity and human touch are not in any way in doubt, such ruthlessness visited on a recovering economy would only lead to further misery amongst its populace. My experience of the american voters is that they seem not to weigh issues properly before casting their votes a good pointer to this is the election of George bush for a second time which finally, almost killed your economy!
If you want a rapid total collapse of your economy and way of life Mitt Romney is definitely your man, he would fight Iran(not any easy war!Guaranteed) and maybe look for some more wars elsewhere.
Mitt would say anything to be in office and I guess once there those 12million jobs he is promising would then be seen for what it is ie a really bad joke!
Its intresting how the Obamamites try and spin the big pic of the past as if its all Bush, Like they werent there screwing things and had no hand in it. Lets not forget who layed the seed for everyone to be able to own a home (even if they couldnt afford it) and who signed free trade ITS BILL CLINTON (guess what Bush wasent in office yet) and after Bush took office we had madam Pelosi since 2006 that took lead of the colaspse and then theres the frank/dobb doonboogle and frank said the housing market was strong just months before it fell apart. So was this all Bush or did the Democrates have a hand in it. So dont ask me to buy the evil Romney that dosent care for the poor when he gives far more than those that are bashing him and saying he dosent care (actions speak louder than words) and all we hear out of Obama is words as I havent heard his plan for the next 4 years and I dont like what hes adding to the deficit and his give me a phone line mentallity in running the country instead of hands on and actually meeting with leaders when there here in our country. (thats your job Mr President)
I do agree that Romney gives back to the poor. However there is a very good chance that his Pioneer status in the outsourcing arena, might have contributed to making those folks poor in the first place. There is an illinois company going through Romney's trade mark business outsourcing process at the moment. Steve America would only be prosperous if the jobs of her folks are not exported outside the country ,so that the 1% could continue to live in opulence. Romney ,wants to make folks receive interest on their savings free of tax and also ensure that no capital gains are levied on them, pls ask yourself, in the hard times currently faced by America, how many folks have such huge savings to benefit from or how many of those folks have so much capital gains that they would want to avoid paying taxes on? not many!
This is just another attempt to further enrich the already rich. Whatever gap that needs to be made up to close up the deficit would then be raised in revenue by taxing the living daylight outta the poor folks. Its time to wake up Americans!
Poor folks don't pay taxes. What you are saying makes no sense...the wealthy CREATE JOBS for the poor folks and the middle class. Our only hope is to put a successful businessman in the White House and not a community organizer has never even ran a lemonade stand.
Couldn't said it better myself!!! Amen to Romney!!!!!!!!
Nanci and Mari,
You both obviously need help and thanks to the Mental health side of one of OBAMA'S programmes, thats it you both have it right , the AFFORDABLE CARE ACT you see, even though you hate the guy he has fully provided for you. That part which allows you both to stay on your parent's policies till you are 26 is really working wonders! Just tell PAPA Self deportation not to mess this up for you, great you both are already in a bind as designed by Papa Self deport!
Sorry, I wish I was 26 again, and by the way my insurance went up recently 40.00 dollars a month. Also as a 53 year old and a registered nurse in the healthcare field. Believe me everything has went downhill the last four years, there have been so many healthcare cuts its unreal and the people who can't get the healthcare is very sad and Oboma hasn't helped, other than cutting medicare and medicaid and putting it to a program that the govermen wants so they can tell you what care you can and cannot have. Communisum? YOU BET!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great Marie. Finally someone with substance and real life facts.
If you want jobs to stay here then politicians need to make it harder to do business outside of the country and more profitable here or your just barking in the wind and if the country wants toget out from under this debt then I say sell off some of the nearly 60% of this country the feds own of our property and pay this debt off instead of it setting idle and non productive.
That would be communism, but reduce the tax rate for businesses to encourage them to invest in America. Romney's plan exactly.
Inposing Tariffs on inported goods isent communisn, You might get companys to start moving there business's back home and heaven forbid if that would produce jobs, Knucklehead
Knucklehead, that is not what was said. They said make it difficult or don't let US companies take their businesses overseas. Wrong idea whatever you call it...more government control and I think with this administration businesses have had enough. For sure with government sticking their nose in it is SOCIALISM. It is about time some of you people realize the consequences if Obama gets re-elected. God help America! Romney 52, Obama 45.
Try to ride down the middle of the horse, Its easier to stay on and get where you want to go?
Great one steve!
Thanks Dave, wish you had a better thought.
I would rather have the bush years then the last 4 years of Obama, and actually Clinton with the mortgage deals is what caused this recession.
Nanci1951, you are beginning to sound like you want to be in your own customized binder, trust me, with Mitt your ambition would be fully achieved with flying technicolour!
Yea Nanci maybe you would be happier in Obams teleprompter then just another resume and you could feel more like a cartoon and the POTUS.
Too bad you make no sense.
You misunderstand, I was reffering on david and his comment about you being in a binder and the new wave president with his telleprompter, GET IT YET?
I am sure Romney is a fine person, as are his family, wife and sons.. we are not voting on this premis however. I have nothing against him, truly; However, his vision is completely in opposition to what America needs at this critical juncture. I will not vote for him today or ever. I specifically am furious over you PIERS; for your obvious partisan dialogue .. No one cares what you think! You are not American. You can never understand the American experience. It is not YOUR JOB to interject your views; It is to put forth apposing views and let the veiwers decide on what they like or not. I am no longer watching your show.. that I viewed religiously up to now. I did not today, and I have advised all my friends to do so, until I hear you are doing your JOB better.
Open letter to PIERS: Do your read these emails? I am so furious with you. Your ' drooling' over the Romney's, your incessant critiques on what you think is best for the USA.. when you are not American, never lived here permanently.. and pretend to understand what is happening here? I can only question if a 'Murdoc' type personality is behind your drive.. somewhere? I am really disgusted with you and you belief that we all really care what YOU think. Asking hard questions is good, and frankly sometimes you do it well.. but YOUR PERSONAL OPINION is not wanted. You have talent but you are not using it wisely. I will not watch another show.. not sure you care but I started today..until I hear you are acting in a non-partisan way, and are examining all issues as such. America will not elect a consumate liar and cheat to the highest office in this country. Mark my words. I challenge you to a personal email reposonse once the USA elections are definitive.
AMERICA ALREADY ELECTED A LIER AND CHEAT AND HIS NAME WAS BILL CLINTON, YOU KNOW THE BILL CLINTON WHO GAVE THE BIG SPEECH FOR OBOMA AND HIS WIFE IS HILARY ,THAT STOOD BY HER MAN. I VOTED FOR HIM ALSO . HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN IMPEACHED AS NIXON WAS FOR LYING UNDER OATH. ALSO HE PROMISED TO FIX HEALTHCARE ALSO. I'M CHANGING TO REPLICAN AFTER MY ENTIRE LIFE AS A DEMOCRATE. AS AMERICANS WE ARE SUPPOSED TO LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES OR WE JUST KEEP STAYING IN A CYCLE. I'M READY TO MOVE ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was a democrat all my life, but I too changed because I am sick of so many lies. I am an independent since 2008 and Romney has my vote..in fact I already voted. My whole immediate family of democrats and extended have also voted for Romney. Change is coming...thank you God.
Romney's sons comments regarding womens rights last night were unbeleivable. "If America is a trillion dollars in debt then a womans right to choose, receive cancer screenings, birth control , etc. really don't matter". I am sure his sons know his real stand on issues. What does this say about Romneys real agenda and not the what he is trying to sell women all over America We need to open our eyes and see who the real Mitt Romney is, not the one who says he supports women's rights but has no intention of following thru with those promises once he is elected.
Is that all you care about Karen is someone paying for your birth control pills, That you cant afford 10 bucks a month and need someone else to pay for it. You woman are twisting the facts and you look petty like your 31 yr old college student sandra fluke.
I agree that it is really sad that women are worrying about their $10.00 birth control when there are so many more serious issues. People are really suffering out there because of this economy and the least of their worries are birth control pills.
The Piers Morgan show as I know it is a fair one with a fair guy in charge . While Romney's kids were on show Piers, you should have at least ask them whether its ok in their family to always make racially insensitive comments about people from America who are non whites. First it was one of Mitt's sons who said Obama should be asked to produce his birth certificate , next surprise, surprise it was Mitt the head of the family who cracked a similar joke on the campaign trail in Michigan. For someone who wants to be President of America , his standards imho are quite low and he is undeserving of that office, everything about him seems to be about the division of the American populace , be it on the basis of colour or taxation or whatever he feels would grease his way into office.
For someone who was a religious leader in his church who understands the teachings of the christian faith should not go around with evidence of racial discrimination about his persona. Some might want to argue though that mormons are not christians, I don't see them as non christians hence my expectation that Mitt conform to the norms of christianity!
People on here talk about Romney dividing the country and I find that to be a big joke. Romney isn't president yet and under Obama this country is more divided then ever. Divided among black and white, divided among rich and poor. I have never seen race relations so tense in my lifetime. We need a good honest leader like Romney to get this country back. I am tired of this admin. Telling us how to run our lives when they can't even run the White House, the economy or most recently foreign relations. I am sick of their lies and their Chicago politics.
nanci1234, you're just sick. its obvious you're romney family's friend. you're defending them everywhere lol
Not related at all...just looking at the facts and the last 4 horrible years. I have a right to my opinion and I am not a name caller. The democrats are very angry and that is too bad. Watch the tide it is turning..landslide coming. Crowley and Obama lied about Libya and Crowley just admitted she was wrong.
Thanks Nanci! Looks like the Papa of self deportation did not fare too well tonight! Things should get better once we all get out of the hole the GOP got us into!
You must have been watching something other then the debate. CBS poll 67 for Romney and 33 for Obama. The tide is turning for Romney. It is all about the economy and he can't run on his record of the past 4 years. Sorry if you are upset.
I don't know which show you watch. piers is a republican and a friend to birther chief (donal trump). when larry king ran the show, never takes sides, never shows which political party he is affiliated with. but piers, from day one he shoots his mouth off often. cnn proclaimed to be fair and impartial. piers makes me wonder if that is true
Totally agree. Piers IS definitely Republican. The tone of his show is obvious. I liked his shows when he first started, but now I have the urge to change channels when he comes on, and this is because of his bias and his need to lecture others for their wrongdoings.
If your father is so "good", how come he's enthusiastic about warfare but doesn't support it in blood (he's a draft dodger) or money (he's a tax evader), and neither do any of you sons? Sorry, I don't admire religious hypocrites who send others to die to protect their priveleged positions in this country, while they strip the poor in this country of life-support, and call that "patriotism".
All fat cats and political cronys are service dodgers, Find a creditable argument that you have a leg to stand on, Why didnt obama serve, clinton, we can go on forever but then this is a no brainer. Each side has draft dodgers. You want privileged how about obama is worth 12 million now and only 3 million when he took office, Not bad for a poor honest black boy.
How did you like the lie Obama gave about Libya? Candy crowley admitted she was Wrong on CNN after the debate. He lied about his energy policy, and on and on again. Time for a change with a real leader like mitt romney.
Our troops in Afghanistan could use a break right now to spend time with their family. How bout you young strong healthy boys enlist and do your civil duty? When Reagan was President I had to sign up for selective service in order to get a pell grant which I paid after graduating from college. Its about time Robmoney boys sign up for something other than learning how to skii and indulge in aristocrat activities.
Sense its the law that everyone register with selective services when 18 can you show me the proof that romneys kids did not or do you just want them to inlist which no one is required to do?
In your face pier. so who won the debate last??? "say it loud' obama won
Did not forget your comment when you interviewd the mitt boys. you said "romney would win second debate"
The polls will tell who won, Not you
a win is a win 47% -39% is a6 points lead. even if the poll shows obama leading by 1 point. it is still a win. I don't understand why you guys are take the fact that obama won. when obama lost the first debate, we did not make any excuses. he lost bottom. with the second debate mit lost.and that is a fact. say it loud obama won! say it loud obama won. and say it loud mitt lost bottom line
Happy to know you finally reliezed what politicans do, But thats what there saying about the president today.
Obama did not win...they are saying it was a draw. Each side calls it a victory.if you are truly unbiased, it was a draw.
Well a gallop pole came out in the last hour and shows: Forget the 47%. Wednesday’s key number is 51%. That’s Mitt Romney’s support among likely voters in the latest seven-day rolling average of Gallup polling. Romney beats President Obama by six points in the latest showing…So it appears that the pundents are wrong again.
The ghastly thing about seeing these Romney men on television is that people treat them as if they were children who you cant ask a cruel question too.
One way to judge people, that I think is probably a pretty good one, is do they empower others and bring them to realise their full potential or do they subtly undermine others? Obama whose debates I dont much enjoy, mind you there was a bit of sadistic fun in seing how cross Romney started to get last night, I have not seen the whole debate yet; Obama, empowers people, look at how well MIichelle is doing and Hilary seems to be much better than she was before she took office under him, more confident and a better speaker and more able to afford stretching a hand out to others, to afford a bit of, nobless oblige while looking very comfortable about it, while these four boys seem like children. It would be better not to vote for Romney, he will turn the country into children, from the look of things up to know he is maybe too paternalistic, those in his care dont flourish.
These men have blue eyes and brown hair, Romney chose Ryan because he looked like his sons.
I am just throwing all this out, of course how journalists treat Romneys sons may not be a true marker of how they are, however, wolfish as they might actually be, they do nohting to stop peoplle treating them like ten yera olds, so either that is their disguise or their impotence is pa0rt of them. rose macaskie madrid.
The Romney boys all look like if you pulled down their pants, they'd be smooth in the front–I'm just saying.
Also, none of them have worked a day in their lives (unless you count campaigning for their dad work). They are trust fund boys, and even more weird and suspect is that they all live in the same big house together with the whole family–the Branch Dividian Romney Compound.
My dont we have rich envy fever, You poooooorr thing.
I agree a lot of people seem jealous of success. More power to these successful young men, and more power to Romney for being such a smart, successful businessman and leader.
I would have agreed with you, the only problem is we hate liars
NO MATTER WHO WINS THIS ELECTION, PRAY TO YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER TO TAKE CARE OF US ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good old democrats, Obama supporters have no substance so they resort to personal attacks.
