With the upcoming general election a mere two days away, on Sunday "Piers Morgan Tonight" aired a very special edition of the program, welcoming former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs amongst the evening's live guests.
Having worked underneath Barack Obama for nearly two years, and now acting as a senior campaign adviser for the U.S. President, Gibbs says he likes the position his side is in:
"I know, from our campaign's perspective, we feel pretty good about where things are. Obviously what's left now, I'm in Wisconsin, we're about 47 and-a-half hours from the polls closing – it's all about getting our voters out to the polls all day on Tuesday," he told Piers Morgan. "I feel very good about where we are in the nine battleground states and about what we have to do to finish this race off in a little under two days."
With the financial state of America still a concern, and the economy serving as arguably the most critical issue of the election, Morgan asked his guest to defend the job Obama's done during his first term: FULL POST
Amidst continued recovery efforts following Superstorm Sandy, coupled with the upcoming general election, on Friday night Piers Morgan welcomed Rudy Giuliani for an energetic and impassioned live interview from Ohio.
The former Mayor of New York City has been a staunch supporter of Mitt Romney, and used his "Piers Morgan Tonight" platform to level heavy criticism on Barack Obama.
Suggesting that the president misappropriated his time by spending it on the campaign trail rather than directing efforts towards assisting victims of the storm, Giuliani channeled his inner Joe Torre by tossing out a baseball metaphor:
"Maybe the first couple of days, he was keeping his eye on the ball," said the one-time GOP presidential candidate. "But we got gas lines now that are a mile long. We got bodies still being discovered and we got a president who is playing, you know, 'campaigner-in-chief.'"
As part of Friday's program, Morgan also invited Gail McGovern to address concern regarding delayed responses and resources to some of the areas hit hardest by Sandy: FULL POST
