Romney sons talk presidential debates with CNN's Piers Morgan

(CNN) - With the second presidential debate less than 24 hours away, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed four of the five sons of Republican candidate Mitt Romney on Monday.

As their father has recently enjoyed a boost in national polls, Craig, Tagg, Josh, and Matt Romney weighed in on the idea of moving into the White House.

"To borrow a sports cliche, we're taking it one day at a time," said Craig Romney. "We honestly are."

    Let's see. How many of the above pictured son's were ever inducted into military service? Have any of the above pictured son's, ever cared about more than what color of shirt to wear with what pair of slacks? Have any of the above pictured son's, ever been hungry, wet, without shelter or scared of tomorrow? Have any of the above pictured son's ever been without, and not for just a day or two, but for months or years, with no end in sight? If you believe that any of the above pictured son's care about you, you need to wake up.

    Has anyone watched how Piers Morgan is drumming up support for Romney. Afterall, he's snitch from Ruper Murdoch into CNN. Piers Morgan was working for Murdoch in UK. He could have easily got into Fox, but I think this is a new game they are all playing. Won't be surprised if he moves into Fox within a couple of years.

    BTW, look at these grown up donkeys. Their father has looted companies and killed so many middle-class jobs. These guys dodged serving the country (not even one our of five?!) and now want their dad to be c-in-c.

    What do they have to do with the debate? Are you bringing President Obama's daughters on too?

    These guys are grown with families. Why would they move into the White House? not one of them will be president. Will they become part of the 47% and "mooch" off of the government by living with their parents?

    we just need to know which one(s) will be joining the military to fight in the wars that their dad plans to start.

    I'd be impressed if one of the Romney family would go down to the recruiting office and enlist in the Armed Forces. Maybe one son could erase the stink of their dad's draft-dodging and hiding in France while Soldiers died in Vietnam. We still need people in the Infantry! Now Romney's a chicken-hawk ready to start a war at the first opportunity. You can bet this third generation of spoiled brats won't serve their country. That's a job for the 47% that Romney considers trash.

    PIer with all these softball questions for the Romneys. That is the only reason why they come on that show and Pier has taken a liking to them coming on that show. It is disgusting to see Pier pander just for ratings. I saw them on his show several times and everything was about curtains and pet peeves etc.

    These cowards,actually showing thier faces on screen to long for the White House?How I wish draft letters were handed in thier hands there & then,it would have been a real comedy to watch the reacions;first the trembling hands,the whitening face,the large round pairs of eyes;YES,WAIT FOR THIS!They would have been on the next available plane to France for 'missionary' work,until the war with Iran is ended.Three generations,not one military uniform to show,in solidarity to America,for all the wars she fought.I see no dignity here.I don't blame them,the 47% would fight & die in the wars like gladiators in medieval Europe for Romney's pleasure,& to satisfy his ego.

    I guess it's alright for Romney to shelter his five sons from serving in the military while he nurses ambition to be the president. For so many boys, it's fraudulent that none of them served while many families loose loved ones in wars. I guess the power of the privileged.

    The Romney sons will never need to worry about putting food on the table or for that matter, having to look for a job. Like their Dad, they'll live a life of the elite class, considering that 47% who "aren't worth worrying about" to be peons – to be used and discarded. We don't need a President who has to pretend to know the plight of the middle class. We don't need a person who flip-flops on every issue to get votes – regardless of the lies he must tell to cover his tracks.

    Five grown, healthy "boys" & none of them served in our military? Really? & yet, they expect "daddy" to win the presidency? This is just plain wrong in so many ways.. Hope people realize that these wealthy folks don' t care about us. They sit there, smiling, having a grand time with no worry about how common people like us struggle everyday. They' re a joke & a waste to human society! Come this November, this mexican descendent can' t wait to cast my vote for our president Barack Obama! Si se puede! 4 años mas!

    Piers Morgan didn't ask Mitts four sons why they didn't volunteer for military service during the Iraq war.

    They know their dad well! 1 day at a time is all you can count on from Romney, because tomorrow he'll have a different view! A few months ago he was "severely conservative," now he's suddenly a moderate who cares about the middleclass & poor, on a video he spoke disdainfully of 47% of the American people, now he cares about 100% of us, he has stated that he wants to shut down Planned Parenthood & overturn Roe v. Wade by appointing justices who favor that concept, now he has no such agenda! I'm glad he won the 1st debate, because it has emboldened him & his GOTP to say what their true agenda may consist of & it aint pretty! I'd say it's downright un-American! Forward w/Obama Nov.6!!

    Outrageous display of smugness! I wonder if it needs (my comment) a translation? Maybe I should say, these boys are too happy, too satisfied with their lives? They sure behave as if they've achieved some greatness of some kind.
    Mitt Boys, emulating your father is not enough, and I'm being kind here.

    His sons are not running for the Presidency. Romney himself needs to stand up and tell the nation who he really is, what he actually stands for, whether he is going to go after women as his entire campaign until this point had planned to overturn Roe v Wade, outlaw abortion for ANY reason, take away our rights to access contraception and have the right to make our own decisions for our healthcare. Republicans do have a war going on against women. Pretending they don't suddenly the last few weeks of their campaign does not change the FACTS of what Romney REALLY plans to do if elected. Better know what you are really voting for. Romney is no friend of women, workers, the poor, or any ethnic group. He is a fraud who wants the POWER of the President but NONE of the SERVICE for the People it requires.

    Piers has made the comment several times in the last few months: "Gas prices have doubled during the Obama administration". I think this comment very missleading and not relevant. Ok if you look at the US average price in January of 2009 ($1.80) and compare that to today's average price ($3.80) it has doubled. This omits the fact gas prices had just crashed as a result of the economic crash from the high in June 2008 ($4.12). A fairer statement would be: "Gas prices are still lower than the high during the Bush administration"

    Tagg and Mitt are currently being investigated by the FBI for a $8.1 Billion ponzi scheme. And it's odd, but $7 Billion has just disappeared into thin air. Switzerland? Caymen Islands? We may Never find that out.

    Wouldn't it be funny if it all came out and the two Romney's were arrested, cuffed, and jailed within the next two weeks?
