Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., Piers Morgan broadcasts out of his native England, as the program continues it’s coverage from the home of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.

Alongside the Opening Ceremony, “Piers Morgan Tonight” welcomes a man often credited with saving the olympics more than a decade ago, Mitt Romney.

Joining the host with his wife Ann by his side, the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee for the 2012 election addresses those that view his business achievements as a negative for his campaign:

“There are people who are trying to attack success and are trying to attack our success; that’s not going to be successful,” says the former Massachusetts governor. “When you attack success you have less of it, and that’s what we’ve seen in our economy over the last few years. Dividing America based on who has money and who hasn’t – who is successful and who is less successful. That is not the American way.”

With the election roughly three month away, the 65-year-old insists that his accomplishments and professional victories will ultimately benefit him in his push to unseat Barack Obama:

“We are an achievement, celebrating, oriented nation. That’s what has lifted us, it will continue to do, and the attacks that come by people who are trying to knock down my business career or my Olympic experience, or our success – those attacks are not going to be successful,” he tells Morgan. “People want more success, they don’t want less success.”

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in tonight at 9 p.m. as Morgan sits down with the couple who may be the next residents of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
