America’s Got Talent Judge: Romney May Save America

Watch “America’s Got Talent” judge turned CNN talker Piers Morgan and you’ll note how he badgers conservatives while hurling softballs at left-of-center guests, hardly making him unusual in mainstream media circles.

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….The great messianic tidal wave of optimism Obama swept in on has been replaced by harsh reality.He promised Americans tremendous ‘hope’ and ‘change’ and, frankly, they don’t feel he’s given them much hope, or changed very much…

….But – and it’s a big but – unemployment is still running at a scarily high 7.8 per cent, meaning 23 million Americans are out of work. Meanwhile, the country’s 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.

[Romney] sees America as a struggling company, and himself as therefore the perfect person to rescue it. That’s where Romney can win. His track record as a businessman is better than almost any presidential candidate ever.

Morgan closes with a hopeful outlook.

There was great excitement around the world when America elected its first black President in 2008. The possible election of America’s first Mormon President will bring with it far lower expectations. But that may not be such a bad thing, for him, for America, or for the world. Especially if he actually gets stuff done.
