Mitt Romney for the hour tonight – here's his last interview with Piers Morgan

Mitt Romney was a guest on the 12th "Piers Morgan Tonight" show ever, and he'll be back again tonight for an in-depth, hour-long interview. A lot has changed since that February 1 appearance, including the fact that Romney is officially running for President. At the time, though, he told Piers Morgan, "My wife thinks I should run, she's absolutely committed...I'm not sure she knows whether I can win or lose, but I know that she feels that somebody of my experience is needed in the country at a time like this.

He also talked about Sarah Palin – watch his thoughts in February about why she would "be great in a primary process," and tune in tonight, 9pmET/PT! What would you ask Mitt Romney?

    How about interviewing Ron Paul, not Obamas Republican counterpart?
    Add this guy to the GROWING list of guests people don't take seriously
    and wont watch. Please stop shoving Romney down our throats.
    If its not Romney, its Palin or someone like Ventura. Could we please
    have a REAL conservative who can talk issues intelligently? I'm certain
    Ron Paul would love to do an interview with you.

      Josh: Sarah Palin, seriously? She talks in sound bites. I haven't heard a substantial problem solving idea from her yet. She just knocks Obama and says that everyone is doing things incorrectly. She never says what she would do except "I would reduce the deficit"...Duhh. You can't govern with slogans and sound bites.
      I agree with you about Ron Paul. I'd like to hear more from him too.

      I'm so glad you brought this up because that was the first thing I thought of when watching this interview at the airport. Piers lists other people vying for the Republican nomination during the interview and didn't once mention Ron Paul.

    Please don't play softball with Romney. An hour of Romney telling us what Obama is doing wrong is a waste of time. Make him say what he intends to do to to fix our economy. If he has good ideas, I don't want to wait for him to be president to tell us.

    CNN, you promised the entire hour with Mitt Romney. And yet, Piers Morgan spends time away talking about same stuff – Rep. Weiner! Enough already, CNN!

    Romney's like i dont know who will will no one comes to mind right now. How about Ron Paul he was a few points behind you a few days ago as 2nd best.

    for the reply below reread josh's post he didn't say Sarah palin. He said the same thing I said Bring on Ron Paul the only candidate with real ideas. He has been consistent for over a decade in his speech not like others who change their ideas to match with whatever the masses call for this election season only to change again and again proving again anad again that only hot air and rhetoric is what they represent. Ron Paul for reality and undrugging the people!

    You "interupt" your guests constantly. It is so distracting. Stop. Listen.

    Mr. Morgan,
    If you are going to interview people, let them speak without interrupting them every second. Mitt Romney has some great ideas but you continue to interrupt him every second. Are you afraid that he is right in his views and ideas?

    Mitt Romney told a bold face lie! He stated that Massachusetts does not mandate health insurance.
    In FACT, it is a true mandate that EVERYONE in Massachusetts regardless of income have health insurance.
    If you are unemployed, you still have to get the insurance. Even if you are unemployed, you still have to fill out yearly tax returns. With that tax return, you must show proof that you have insurance, whether it is private insurance or MassHealth, or another form of the Mass inusrance plans. There are plans available for unemployed people if they cannot afford it. It's free overall. However, it is required that you have insurance.

    Overall, Mitt Romney does not even know his own bill. He totally lied for political gain. The lies must stop.

      Mitt Romney did not initiate Mass HC or write it. It has had 8 things added since he left. Your Mandate is, private, state or sign you are willing to be responsible for your bill. Many people were just going and never paying. Many people could have had health insurance and didnt because they knew they would be treated.

    Interview Ron Paul, so we can see a discussion of real ideas with an intellectually honest and consistent thinker. Ron Paul is the only candidate that can win who is offering something different from the Republocrats on both sides of the isle. If anybody takes the time to listen to Paul's message of liberty, they will find that it satisfies the agendas of most "liberals" and "conservatives" in the public because it is based on common sense and integrity. Stop pushing Romney, Palin, etc.

      Ron Paul is a career politician who speaks against careers in politics and then keeps going. He votes against pork, knowing it will pass, then takes the money. No Integrity. He is a moron on islam. He stands consistently against Israel. Real people of integrity if they vote against something do not take the money such as Rick Scott, Bobby Jindal and Sarah Palin. Paul has zero chance... bever will and is an embarrassment to America. No leadership skills. Waited to the last moment to endorse Mccain when he knew darn well who Obama was. He is a selfish moron.

    Its been said a few times here but I will say it again for weight in numbers, interview Ron Paul please. I have no interest in politicians like Mitt Romney who will not offer any actual changes, just a reshuffling of more of the same.

    An interview with Ron Paul is about the only way I'd ever watch CNN again.

    Amazed . . . at the different tact taken with celebs vs. politicians. Mitt's interview this evening was a real disappointment. . . . because I couldn't even hear the man speak.. . over your consistent interruptions.For those of us who opt for info vs reality tv we deserve every opportunity to learn about potential candidates in one of the most important elections EVER! That's what we expect from CNN & your terrific format. Please juat ask the ? & shut the heck up! Give your guest the opp to respond with the consideration showed to Paris Hilton, Oprah or the Kardashians.. Find a venue to vent your personal political views aside from your CNN desk – allow us the opportunity to learn as much as we possibly can about OUR next leaders. Glad to know that your British healthcare program works well – let us know what we can expect & give our potential leaders the opp to speak! There are those of who truly care & turn to you & your network for reliable information we can act upon. It's important!

    Romney's 5 sons have avoided the Military,,does this have something to do w/their religion ?..just wondering .....

      No, it does not have anything to do with our religion. Literally thousands from our church serve in the military.My son and grandson are in the military. But Mitt's sons, all of them went on L.D.S. missions when they were 19 years old. Not serving in the military does not mean you are not patrioti. They are all wonderful sons to Mitt and Ann Romney

    Re: Mitt Romney interview. Wow, another Republican candidate bashing Obama care. Note to Piers, why mention the National health in Britain. Why not talk about your neighbours to the north, who have universal health care and ask how it works there. I send Jon Stossel a e-mail about Canadian Health Care and suprise!!! did not receive a response. For Romney to say " it's an individual's responsibility to look after their own health care" is a stupid comment. My son developed eye cancer, and I guess that's HIS FAULT. Thank GOD for our health care system ( he is on the mend). Note to Mitt Romney. Get the facts about universal health care BEFORE you open your mouth to BASH IT.

      sorry about your son. But yes it is up to each person to be responsible, No one owes you a living or anything. I wonder why people in Canada always come here to be treated quickly? They fear us getting socialized medicine because they need to come here

    Re my note above. You have probably guessed I am CANADIAN. Yes and proud of it and proud of our health care system. It works and is there WHEN WE NEED IT. Unlike US health insurance. IT CAN NEVER BE CANCELLED. We pay monthly premiums Here in British Columbia ( that;'s just north of Washington state for those who are geographically challenged!). We pay $108/ month per family and this gives us access to Doctors, specialits and hospital stays and any followup needed. My son's cancer treatment was " taken care of" It probably would have cost tens of thousands of dollars for the same treatment in the US, In Canada the bill for my son's treatment was ZERO!!!!!!

      and i can show you thousands of people who have died because of baad health care in Canada. Here people can be treated for free with no $108.00... its the law

    Ron Paul will dominate the debates, just like he did last cycle. Lets hope this time he gets the nomination.
    A Paul / Napolitano ticket would destroy Obama. I doubt Piers will interview him though, given the sideshow
    he's had thus far. Although it is kind of funny watching Romney avoid issues and bold face lie in the clips.

    Its about time the "Social Conservatives" lost power in the GOP, I don't want to force my beliefs on anyone
    and I don't want them forcing theirs on me.

    Come on Piers, lets see an interview with Ron Paul!
