One day removed from formally parting ways with Fox News, and on the heels of a historically poor prediction prior to the 2012 Presidential Election, on Wednesday evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Dick Morris for a live, face to face, interview.
In early November, the widely recognizable political pundit proudly claimed that Republican candidate Mitt Romney would not only defeat Barack Obama, but that he would do so in a landslide. Tonight the 64-year-old discussed the circumstances surrounding his recent firing, and any correlation between his grossly inaccurate forecasting.
"I had a wonderful talk with Roger Ailes [president of Fox News Channel] - who I really respect - a week ago. And he said in this business, you're up, you're down. Nothing is final or fatal," revealed the guest.
"Why are you down now," asked the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host.
"Because I was wrong, and I was wrong at the top of my lungs," Morris admittedly honestly.
Asked by Piers Morgan if he resented the way he was let go by the network, the guest took the high road:
"FOX has given me an opportunity of a lifetime: 15 years, 3,000 interviews. And at some point, a great marriage has to come to an end," he joked. "The divorce isn't final, but I am seeing other people."
Looking back at the election, Morris refused to offer judgment as to whether or not his now-former network played a role in the outcome. However, he did cover one example of where the GOP went wrong:
"I believe that the Republicans were horribly hurt among women by the crazy extremists who said that rape won't make you pregnant and it's an act of God."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the man who served as the campaign manager of Bill Clinton's successful 1996 bid for re-election elaborates further on his departure from FOX, and offers additional analysis of the recently completed election.
