Tonight: Jeb Bush

Coming up this evening, Piers Morgan welcomes Jeb Bush to the program. As the former governor of Florida, one of the key battleground states of the election, Bush shares his unique perspective on the election and weighs in on the Romney campaign.

"He’s been reluctant to share what’s in his heart and who he is," says the son and brother of two former presidents about Mitt Romney's public persona. Bush notes Romney has been the subject of many television attack ads that turn Romney "into the devil incarnate."

"The guy's [Romney] had the barked scraped off of him by an opponent who wants to change the conversation as quick as possible away from his economic policy," Bush says about Barack Obama's campaign tactics.

Tune in to "Piers Morgan Tonight" live at midnight as Morgan continues his coverage of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

    Many people with MS are very sick, and either can't or can hardly walk , some are going blind, etc. Many are unable to work and are on Social Security Disability, and Medicare or Medicaid (if impoverished). Ann Romney claims she has mostly "beat" MS. Do Ann and Mitt Romney support having the same kinds of medical and physical therapy, drugs, etc options covered through Medicare and Medicaid for these people as she's been able to get, including Dressage (with horses). If not, why not? Are only rich people worth healing?

      The answer to your first question is NO. She does not have the same restrictions etc. as you do.
      The answer to your second question is: because she is rich.
      The answer to your last question is: Yes, the rich will always be given the best treatment.
      Your best option is to be rich.

      Piers should read from this link;
      It should be read by every Republican.
      It explains the disgust held by Democrats for the Bush name.
      GH Bush's skeleton in the closet that Clinton covered up. Barry Seal was able to fly his jet to Washington and enter VP – GH's office without an appointment. He was assassinated while cleaning up loose ends to Contra Affair. That affair relates to the Reagan-Bush-Ollie North importation of drugs into America to raise monet for the Contras.

    When Piers talks to a Bush his viewers are thinking this
    Jeb – the Gov of Florida whose administrator made his brother President by stopping the ballot count.
    GW – Draft dodger during the Viet Nam war
    the President put in office by his brother's administration in Fl.
    the President that decimated the American economy
    the President that preempted a war on a lie – costing many thousands of lives..
    the President that had a long personal family relationship with Bin Laden (9/11)
    The Bush family had a 50 year personal relationship with the Bin Laden Family
    The Bush family sat with the Bin Ladens & Others at Carlyle Group a Private Equity firm in Washington. Obama had no relationship with the Bin Ladens and killed the terrorist after 24 months in office. GW couldn;t do it in 8 years.
    The Bush family – participants in the immoral, illegal, unethical, importation of drugs to America to raise money to purchase Iranian weapons for the Contras.

    Romney – Draft dodging son of a wealthy powerful businessman and Gov of Michigan. Purportedly fluent in French where he went to avoid the draft. Personal relationship with Koch Industries who fund the Tea Party, the John Birch Society, and other radical political activists.

    People should take their guidance from Matthew 7: 15-16 (KJV) to know the truth about people..

    " People should take their guidance from Mathew 7:15-16 ( KJV ) to know the truth about people."

    The Kingdom of Saudia Arabia are cult that was started by the British to weeken the Ottoman empire and break up Islam . The Talaban were started by Ameicans to rid the Rusians out of Afganistan. The Momorns was started by John D. Lee a criminal.

    Let truth live.

    When running for the Senate in 1994, Romney demanded his opponent release his tax returns, saying "the public has a right to know".
    When running for Governor in 2002, he demanded that , no only should his opponent release her tax returns, but, since she and her husband filed separately, that her husband should release his as well.
    So, why does Mitt find it so important that his opponents ( and their spouses) have to release their tax records, but that he doesn't? Does he believe one set of rules should apply to everyone else, and a different set of rules should apply to him?

    Piers, you don't have the IQ to have a substantive conversation with Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio. You ooze left wing liberalism – so passe'. Wonder why CNN's ratings have tanked....

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
