Clips From Last Night: Jack Welch on the U.S. economy and Mitt Romney; Deval Patrick on the Obama Adminstration's scorecard

As the presidential race nears to a nail-biting close, on Wednesday, businessman and staunch Mitt Romney supporter Jack Welch returned to the "Piers Morgan Tonight" studios.

The former Chairman and CEO of General Motors enthusiastically voiced his support for the GOP candidate, while simultaneously addressing a recent statement by Berkshire Hathaway's Warren Buffett who suggested that the U.S. economy will see growth regardless of which administration takes over in the next term:

"Warren was partially right," agreed Welch. "Warren may have made the point that the economy will be better. A 1.5 percent GDP growth next year, same as we had this year, will be better. What you'll get with Mitt Romney is a chance at 3 to 4 percent."

Also on Wednesday, Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick joined host Piers Morgan, sharing his insight on the Obama administration's policy scorecard:

"You cannot deny that there are still people out of work," said Patrick about the current state of the U.S. economy. "You can accept and you have to that a strategy that is about investing in education, in innovation and in infrastructure is a winning strategy for this country, and it's the reason why we're getting the job growth we are."

"Imagine how much better it would be if the president got the tools from the Congress that he's asked for, where the Congress has sat on its hands and rooted for failure."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Patrick tells Morgan, "When I listen to him [Romney] talk about Obamacare, it sounds like the only element of Obamacare he doesn't like, is the Obama part of it.

    Piers ,next time Mr. Patrick comes on ask him what Success he the President had in unify America . Please do not let him blame the opposition because if relected The same people will be there . All that answer , would provide is stagnation for the next four years . As i am also British , it will be interesting to see how sound America is after another four years of President Obama . Maybe we will get more dollars for the pound .Maybe thats why your bias leans towards Obama .
