Morgan for Mitt: CNN Star Says Romney 'Might Just Save America' (Piers Morgan! WOW!!)
Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | October 14, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 10/14/2012 3:24:26 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Watch "America's Got Talent" judge turned CNN talker Piers Morgan and you can't help but notice how he badgers conservatives while hurling softballs at left-of-center guests.

That hardly makes him unusual in mainstream media circles.

What is unusual, though, is the column he just penned for The Daily Mail. The headline says it all, "He's one of the least principled politicians I've met. But I believe Mitt Romney might just save America."

Morgan doubles down on Romney's image as a flip-flopper, but he goes on to salute Romney as a man, father and husband and remind us the GOP presidential candidate is particularly brilliant at making broken things run again.

The main concern for Americans right now is the economy, after all. I asked Bill Clinton recently if he felt Romney was a ‘principled man’ and Clinton smiled: ‘That’s not the issue to me.’ And I suspect it’s not for most voters either. They just want to know which man, Romney or Obama, is going to revive the economy faster....

....The great messianic tidal wave of optimism Obama swept in on has been replaced by harsh reality.He promised Americans tremendous ‘hope’ and ‘change’ and, frankly, they don’t feel he’s given them much hope, or changed very much...

Piers Morgan is one of the stupidest people on TV.

Yep. President Romney was elected because his challenger was worse. That should be in his bio.

What Clinton meant to say is: I was never principled myself, so why should I judge anyone else.

The bigger question is, why would Morgan pose that question to someone like Clinton? It's like Morgan had never heard of Clinton's shenanigans, and crimes, throughout his career.

CNN’s attitude has shifted in the last week. It may be smoke and mirrors...but perhaps, just maybe, the interview with the mother of the fallen soldier in Libya may have geniunely upset them...after that is when things changed and they started actually being somewhat objective - that one reporter confronted Obama’s campaign director Stephanie Cutter over the interview...Anderson Cooper sounded disturbed after the mother told him she had been told “outright lies.”

Again, might just be smoke and mirrors...I can’t trust CNN...but maybe a faint glimmer of hope that one event caused something to click in their heads that things with this administration are not exactly geniune and not worth manipulating coverage to protect anymore. We’ll see, I guess, as time goes on.

Well, I guess you take your endorsements where you can get them.

I don’t think much of this guy, but some folks will listen to him and give it some thought.

Every little bit helps. I don’t think this is the last guy either. We’re going to be surprised at the folks who jump the Good Ship Lolly-flop in the next few weeks.

That’s another possibility...they see the writing on the walls and are wanting to curry favor so they get the “big interviews” with the new administration to help their ratings.

CNN is trying to improve its balance and with it secure greater viewership, because they are otherwise on life support.

The other ingredient is that they know they’ve been lied to over Libya, and most of the MSM doesn’t like being lied to, and will retaliate, unless they are whores like NBC.

Have no idea about Morgan’s politics. I never watch him. But to be honest, I don’t find the notion all that unsurprising that a liberal, looking over Romney’s political record in Massachusetts, might find him entirely palatable.

But I hope it has more to do with a segment of such liberals who witnessed Obama’s ‘empty suit’ debate performance, and were genuinely shaken-up about it, and are now toying with new options.

Hey, from his bio, the guy's a vet, so you might want to ease off.

In our zeal to defeat Filth Obama, which I share, we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that Romney's still a RINO dirtbag. It's just that we can probably recover from 4 years of RINO dirtbaggery....which we can't from 4 more years of Filth.

CNN’s ratings are low, so they need to move either left or right. Left, toward MSNBC, isn’t too promising. Right, toward Fox, on the other hand, might bring in a few viewers.

Typical liberal nonsense. The reason you wouldn’t want my bio is because it says that I served my country 24 years. That to you is nasty.

Morgan is right. Romney is an Etch-a-sketch with a family history of antipathy towards conservatives. But we can’t take another for years of 0bama.

Maybe the main stream media see's the writing on the wall and are in a mad rush lurch dash to seek amnesty.

No Amnesty for the Main Stream Media unless they move over seas and stay there.

Romney is one of the least principled politicians he’s ever known? Clinton and obama must be the other two.

No idea who or what “Shyne” is, but “Tawney Kitaen” was a B film movie actress (”Bachelor Party” which introduced Tom Hanks on the widescreen). She’s now or was in jail for either failing to pay taxes or fraud, or both. A shame.

She is very pretty and could have been a major model.

It’s my standard post to people who are busying themselves whining about Mittens.

What’s really laughable about your whine is that Romney is gaining a lead in even pathetically screwed up polls with a healthy oversample of Dems PRECISELY because he articulated conservatism and projected confidence and capability in the Denver debate. So, he’s not winning because the other guy sucks, he’s winning because voters are deciding he’ll make a good President. In other words, precisely the opposite of your claim.
