Townhall are acting like Piers Morgan has influence and power in the U.S.Having extreme reaction's to nearly everything he says implies he has influence in the U.S. However the anti-British rhetoric is disappointing. What has the people here in the U.K done to have this backlash over what one man has said while in employment in the U.S? Mitt Romney came here and insulted the British people,his supporters were fine with this,and he could of had more power then Piers Morgan

And one of Obamas first remodeling ideas in the White House was to return a bust of Winston Curchhill.

Romney never insulted the British - they just took unwarrented offense at his honest remarks about security issues prior to the London Summer Olympics, which as the former head of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics immediately after 9/11 he was certainly entitled to make.

I am in the U.K and he did make a fool of himself.If his comments were so honest and informed why did he spend the next day saying the opposite?
I f he was so entitled and concerned why didn't he say it to David Cameron and to our face?
Posters are taking unwarranted offence to Piers Morgan honest remarks on issues

His "honest" remarks?

You mean like Britain is "safer" since guns were banned? WRONG crime and especially criminal violence has gone up.

"Honest" you mean like his statement that devotion to our Constitution is unwarranted and silly?

The ONLY good thing about Piers Morgan is that since he is seen only on CNN he is virtually invisible. Besides, if everything in America is so horrid I invite him to return home to jolly old England.

Take a flying leap off a tall bridge mate.

' his statement that devotion to our Constitution is unwarranted and silly? '

Find me that quote,i assume it will be easy because you wouldn't of made that comment without evidence,because he saying the opposite.While your at it when did he say everything in America is so horrid?
If he is so invisible why in Townhall having nearly daily clips of his show?

He said it when and where he said it because he was ASKED! Now, he had an opinion, having had some experience on the subject. He told the truth, and it wasn't too wildly different from what ANYONE reading the papers might have concluded on the runup to the games! (Thankfully our concerns did not come to bear.) He backpedaled solely because he's a politican and was getting backlash, but if people are going to get insulted when someone answers a question honestly, well then Britain is screwed.

America is screwed if they want to deport someone for making comments that they disagree with whilst carrying out his employment.
He is just saying what the media and American's including the President .He is standing by his views unlike Romney who caved in the face of opposition.
You must be so proud.
Romney could of least of found out the name of the Opposition ,who he referred to as 'Mr Leader' to a bemused nation.
Also nobody seemed to have a problem with Peter King ,a long time supporter of I.R.A terrorism ,still justifying their action's.

Brits easily offended eh? We can get technical if you want, just remember the role the Brits played when it came to putting up or shutting up, when it came to doing something about the hostilities taking place in it;s back yard, namely Bosnia!

Milwaukee Country Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett joined Piers Morgan on his show to discuss the sheriff’s radio ad, which urges citizens to consider taking a firearms safety course because “simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option.” Clarke’s point was that with officers laid off and furloughed, police might not be able to respond as quickly as needed. Thus, citizens may want to consider giving themselves another option: learn how to responsibly use a firearm for self-defense. This, of course, doesn’t fly with Morgan, a staunch gun-control advocate, or Mayor...
