Skip to comments.PIERS MORGAN: I believe Mitt Romney might just save America
Posted on 10/15/2012 7:12:15 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
An extraordinary political earthquake struck America this week. Mitt Romney, widely assumed to be the best of a weak bunch of Republican candidates, suddenly overtook Barack Obama in election polls.
Remarkably for someone with a reputation as Mr Dullard, it was his brilliant performance on October 3 at the first of three presidential debates, where he scored the biggest win ever over an oddly downcast Obama, that propelled him into the favourites chair.
Should Romney now win on November 6, America will not only have replaced its first black President with its first Mormon President.
It will also have elected the squeakiest-clean man ever to run for the presidency in any country in the world. Imagine for a moment an interview with a British politician that went as follows:
Q: Have you ever drunk alcohol?
Q: Have you ever taken drugs?
Q: Have you ever had an affair?
Q: Have you ever smoked a cigarette?
Q: Do you ever use swear words?
Now imagine that politician was actually telling the truth. Short of Ann Widdecombe, I cant think of a single MP in our illustrious nations history who would be able to answer no to more than half these questions.
Im fairly sure Boris Johnson, the man who might well be our Prime Minister one day, would rack up a resounding 100 per cent yes rate.
But when I interviewed Romney for my CNN show, he proudly answered all those questions to me in the firm negative. He is a devout Mormon and takes his faith so seriously that he donates at least ten per cent of his income to the church every year totalling tens of millions of dollars over the past two decades.

* Hes also one of the least principled politicians Ive ever encountered. Theres barely a big issue that Romney hasnt switched his position on for apparent political expediency, earning him the nickname Mr Flip Flop.
* Its hard to even recognise the new Mitt from the one who was a successful and popular Governor of Massachusetts. He has flipped on abortion, healthcare and embryonic stem cell research.
Each move was dictated by the need to make him more electable not to the wider public, but to his own party members, particularly the more Right-wing Tea Party element, so he could win the Republican nomination during the Primary race and it worked.
THEN MORGAN MAKES THE FOLLOWING CONCLUSION:
'Forget the flip-flopping... the economy is the big issue and he's a fantastic businessman'
Unemployment is still running at a scarily high 7.8 per cent, meaning 23 million Americans are out of work. Meanwhile, the countrys national debt has risen to a staggering $16 TRILLION, up $5 trillion from when Obama took over. Factor in a still severely deflated housing market, and petrol prices double what they were in 2008, and it all adds up to a pretty miserable economic picture.
Thats where Romney can win. His track record as a businessman is better than almost any presidential candidate ever. He also almost single-handedly turned round the fortunes of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002, after the organising committee turned to him desperate for help.
No doubt CNN will now take him off the air until after the election..
A “President Romney” might save America. Might not.
His opponent, however, is bet-the-eternal-salvation-of-your-soul-guaranteed to destroy America, given another four years.
He may already have done it.

Watch as the Censoring Liberal Agenda Media, (CLAM), accuses Piers Morgan of “politicizing” the economy.
BTW, aren’t politicians and critics supposed to politicize EVERYTHING ? DUH!
Dear Piers Morgan,
No matter who wins the election...only God can save America. God will so only if we repent and ask Him to save us.
No matter who wins the election, we are going to experience some VERY difficult times ahead. However, if Obama has another four years, those times will be exponentially MORE difficult.
Just BELIEVE in the one TRUE GOD of the Holy Bible!
I understand Mitt donated $1 million of his own money to the Olympics and took no salary.
I recall that JFK took no salary as president. Mitt should make that pledge during this debate. No salary as president! He should explain that everyone will need to sacrifice to get us through this, but that sacrifice must be fair for all on both the taxation and the spending sides.
And, that he will not spend billions for his family to go on vacations. And that he will not be an empty chair at the daily security briefings.
Well put. We forget this too often.
How will you know when/if God has saved America? Will it be easily recognised by people? Will there be any way to verify that it’s been saved?
With Obama’s negatives so high Mitt should motivate the voters with the same slogan JFK did:
“Do you realize the responsibility I carry?” Kennedy asked his supporters during the presidential campaign. “I’m the only person between Nixon and the White House.”
To the speechwriter for Romney;
Quotes from JFK:
“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you- ask what you can do for your country.”
Ask what your country can do for you.
This is a real surprise to me. Morgan is a typical Leftie reporter who, until now, seemed to hold all the usual views that Leftie reporters hold. Being British, Morgan probably doesn’t realize that in America, reporters have to move in lock-step to the Lib agenda and can have no deviations from it.
I know there are some who have concerns about Romney’s Mormon religion. However, I think that Romney’s beliefs have far more in common with mainstream America than the current occupant of the White House who spent 20 years listening to bigoted G** d*** America sermons and was raised as a Muslim.
This is huge! If Piers Morgan can deliver all twelve of his regular viewers to Romney it could change everything!
His name kind of sounds familiar. Did he play James Bond?
Ask what your country can do for you.
Ask not what your country is doing TO you.
Are you sure of that? :)
Will it be easily recognised by people? Will there be any way to verify that its been saved?
We forget this too often.
Indeed! THAT is what got us into the mess in the first place.
