10:14 am
has been fabricated and are lies. he writes that obama is following in the footsteps of george w. bush. how much pressure do you think the white house has to prove the allegations against syria that yes, they are using chemical weapons therefore we should get more involved? >> i don't think they will have to prove it to russia. russia is an ally for syria. they have sent military equipment and economic aid to syria. we understand where that is. you have as well that other allies have come to the same conclusion months earlier than president obama did. when the first indication came that chemical weapons had been used said i want to be sure and i want this studied. this latest from yesterday where the white house said yes they would be helping to arm syrian rebels because of the chemical weapons use came as a result of
10:15 am
a couple months worth of studies to whether it's actually happening. i think russia is not going to change its mind but neither is the united states. >> do you think the obama administration has something to show or prove to the american people who seem not to have much of a stomach, if you will, for getting involved in another war? >> we've seen polls showing support for some kind of u.s. involvement. way short of troops on the ground. if chemical weapons were used but always when a president wants to take some kind of military move and right now this is not military action so much as saying we're going to help arm these specific groups of rebels but any time a president wants to make a major move, let's say he decides there should be a fly over and they must be discussing that sort of thing with allies or perhaps allies, folks in the region in
10:16 am
conjunction with the u.s. want to take out airplanes, so suppose they want to do that. it's always incumbent to explain what the stakes are. i expect you will see that. >> i want to turn to immigration. t this is something former florida governor jeb bush said. i want you to listen to this. >> they love families. >> some people were looking at that wondering what did he mean there. is he applying certain things. what was that about? >> well, the totality of the statement was the argument for
10:17 am
immigration reform and for embracing immigration reform. he noted a couple of statisticals that have happened and that is that hispanic population is growing more rapidly. the hispanic population is responsible for most of the growth. the white population is getting older. the use of the world fertility. we think of whether or not you're able to have children, to conceive children. f fertility rate is better or birthrate is higher among hispanics. the facts were right the wording was pretty clumsy. >> thank you so much. it's good to see you.

10:24 am
imagine how horrible it was when she faced that gunman and having those kids around her. it was just like unbelievable. >> reporter: he is one of many in this town who are pushing for stronger federal gun legislation. he has been in washington along with other parents as recently as yesterday meeting with the president, meeting with members of congress advocating this cause. i did reach out to the nra to see if they had any statement in reaction to this event. i've not heard back from them. it comes from the national shooting sports foundation which is based right here in newtown. they wrote newtown is a small community and six months after the terrible tragedy we are no less affected by the profound sadness of the families and the first responders who are involved. our hearts go out to them. it would be inappropriate for us to comment or to participate at

if you have high cholesterol, here's some information that may be worth looking into. in a clinical trial versus lipitor, crestor got more high-risk patients' bad cholesterol to a goal of under 100. getting to goal is important, especially if you have high cholesterol plus any of these risk factors because you could be at increased risk for plaque buildup in your arteries over time. and that's why when diet and exercise alone aren't enough to lower cholesterol i prescribe crestor. [ female announcer ] crestor is not right for everyone. like people with liver disease or women who are nursing, pregnant or may become pregnant. tell your doctor about other medicines you're taking. call your doctor right away if you have muscle pain or weakness, feel unusually tired, have loss of appetite, upper belly pain, dark urine or yellowing of skin or eyes. these could be signs of rare but serious side effects. is your cholesterol at goal? ask your doctor about crestor.

the new report from fico shows among 18 to 29-year-olds 16% of them don't have a credit card. that has doubled since the recession. young people are dealing with high unemployment and student loans. they're also delaying big purchases like cars and homes. another factor, the emergence of prepaid cards, the cards that require you to have the money first before you spend it. also the card act of 2010 passed by congress requires anyone under the age of 21 to have a co-signer on a credit card if they don't earn enough money to make full payments. the pullback means credit scores for 18 to 29-year-olds is improving. credit scores for the 60 and older crowd have gotten worse thanks to still high levels of auto and mortgage debt. suzan suzanne? >>. check this out. the most hard to get real estate in the city of boston. you might find this surprising. take a look at this. pretty nice. this is what more than half a million dollars looks like for somebody desperate for parking
