Dick Morris Author
As of August 2009, Morris lends his name and assistance to the League of American Voters, an advocacy group for seniors to defeat the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. He has been described as “America’s most ruthless political consultant” in the BBC documentary Century of the Self, which chronicled how he brought lifestyle marketing to politics for the first time.
Morris has consulted for candidates in other countries of the western hemisphere, including the campaigns of Fernando de la Rua for President of Argentina (1999), Jorge Batlle for President of Uruguay (1999), Vicente Fox for President of Mexico (2000), and Raphael Trotman for President of Guyana (2006). Morris and his wife, Eileen McGann, are behind www.vote.com, a site intended to register a non-scientific political public opinion on various issues.
Guest commentator and political prognosticator
Since leaving Clinton’s employ in 1996, Morris has said he has become profoundly “disillusioned” with the actions of the Clintons in the late 1990s. He has since formed a career as a political commentator and critic of the Clintons (particularly Hillary), appearing on Fox News programs such as Hannity & Colmes, Hannity, and the O’Reilly Factor, and on various local and nationally syndicated radio talk shows. Morris is also a regular columnist and Pundits Blogger for The Hill, a nonpartisan daily newspaper based in Washington, D.C., and for NewsMax.com, a conservative online news website.
Regarding the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination, he initially stated that Howard Dean’s candidacy could be written off right away. He had earlier discussed the likelihood of Dean defeating John Kerry after early strong showings by the former Vermont governor. Kerry defeated Dean and all his other rivals and won the nomination.
In a column in The Hill on June 22, 2005, Morris predicted that Hillary Clinton would face her “worst nightmare” in her 2006 Senate race against Republican candidate Jeanine Pirro, whose campaign subsequently collapsed within a matter of two months after repeated crushing defeats in the opinion polls due to her husband’s alleged Mafia ties.
In 2005 Morris wrote that Hurricane Katrina “has the capacity to shape the second Bush term in the same way September 11 shaped his first term—not only in rebuilding New Orleans but in taking preventative steps around the nation to bolster our defenses against natural and man-made disasters and terror strikes.
Dick Morris And Fox News
Dick Morris Says Fox News Fired Him “For Being Wrong”
One day after having his contract not renewed by Fox News Channel, Dick Morris says it was his bad political judgment that got him canned. “I was fired because I was wrong. I was wrong and I was wrong at the top of my lungs,” Morris told CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight Wednesday. On his first appearance on CNN in over a decade, the former FNC contributor still insisted his opinion that Mitt Romney would win the Presidential election was correct – until Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast. “The real issue is why did Mitt Romney lose? The real answer is the storm,” Morris told Morgan. At the end of the approximately 20-minute interview, Morgan invited Morris to come back anytime.
