capital is hinging on, when spain clarifies, you have a problem. that statement should not do anything to make people feel economically positive about the future. >> when spain clarifies, we're going to get some answers, that was rather terrifying. i don't think anybody thinks spain is going to clarify or when they do, it will mean much. >> that's true. the first thing he said out of the gate was, that most of the eurozone leaders are not part of the g-20, and really, any real action was going to maybe happen at the summit of the eurozone leaders later this month. he led with the fact that nothing is happening here. so it was just interesting. but i mean, you know, i think -- he fried to communicate that he -- he heaped praise on europe, on them for seeing the need for structural reforms. the need for integrated financial architecture, all that stuff we know. so it was a lot of repetition of what we already know for sure.
>> david fromm, why choose to do this? i want to ask you about the speech itself. he could have come out and said, europe, i believe they have what it takes, our nation knows they must do it. they are essential for millions of american jobs, something like that, it was sort of -- as john avlon was saying, the speech sounded like it was written by an economist, it talked about sovereign debt costs. >> i disenthe a little bit from the general consensus. i learned some things from that speech. the president told us or indicated to us what it is he's been urging on the europeans, he web with the through his list of things that were positive, and added at the end, also, deposit insurance. europe deposit insurance would be enormous. it would mean that german, french and dutch taxpayers would be responsible for the debts of spanish banks. his mention that is something that would be a valuable to the solution of the crisis.
i think it tells us something that the united states -- >> well, tim geithner has been behind that. the president hasn't said it, we just assumed it. >> the second thing he told us were, things are bad. that when president praise people for their positive attitude, what they mean to say is, this is the attitude i would like to see, but that i am not seeing. you're right, if they were positive news to reveal, he would reveal that. what he's praising what he can, but in this case, the absence of news is enormous news. very bad news, but news that we need to absorb. and the third thing, you and john pointed to it with the reference of the spanish drawdown. the spanish bailout that everyone was gleeful about for about eight minutes is turning out to be a complicated and difficult thing that may not work. >> lee, how concerned should we be by what david just said? sort of the lack of news itself
is enormous when it cops to europe. >> definitelies the president is walking a tough line, there's not much he can do. and he has to be careful to not push too far, the leaders got testy today. they were saying, we don't need help from america, we have this covered, we don't need help from outsiders. so, you know, he's in a tough position. the things he mentioned about the structural refors that are are needed, david's right, those are important, he's mentioned those before, the need for bank supervision, the need for depository insurance. those are the solutions when he talks about the tools, they're out there. the problem is, nothing is happening. we have no -- investors are not convenienced, not after tonight, not after today, probably not after tomorrow, that this is going to happen with with any swifter urgency than it did before the greek elections, the past two and a half years. there's no promise of that. >> there's the ugly truth that europe does need the u.s. u.s. taxpayers may not want to hear that. the fed is providing liquidity
to them every day. the u.s. is giving a lot of money through the imf. i realize that's been shifting toward germany. >> that's true. >> they do need us, we are helping them. >> they may call on us to help them more. it's true. it's a delicate dance right now. >> john avlon, let's get back to this question, maybe david frum convinced you he did it well, but why take this prime time moment when you don't have anything to triumph about. >> at a time when people are looking for strong leadership, even if you're dealing with the problem that's inherently outside your ability to control, when you're reading a statement as dense as that. there's a sense of not commanding leadership. look, the president has been dealt a tough hand here, presidents are judged on how they play bad hands. and there were some news sprinkled throughout that paragraph. on the big questions, he does punt.
he realizes that europe doesn't have a con senses right now about basic questions. the united states just to a domestic audience, he said, i need to do more to plug jobs. and then promised long term getting our fiscal house in order. but these were asides. and indeed of the of the q & a was spent discussing syria. at a time when there are so many questions and this was not a performance that gave clear lines of what comes next to make our near term a little smoother. >> on syria, that was another one where i'm curious on your take on, that answer was, i believe five minutes and 30 seconds. it was, look, i'm not going to suggest the world is aligned with russia and china, and i'm trying to convince them to change their mind. it didn't sound like there was a strong hand there either. >> no, and there's a backing away from previous positions. the president has previously said it's unacceptable, assad must go.
now he's not convinced theres a way to end the bloodshed so long as assad stays. that was before the pundits comment. the order time to go. he may be -- assad may be able to stay on a little longer, and we have seen close up, china and russia are very intransigent. >> and in this, it seems like, look, john avlon they are not moving. we're not convincing them to move. >> no, it doesn't make the u.s. look strong? >> no, he reiterated assad has lost his legitimacy, but the west are not aligned. the country that is have the most to lose, potentially, from too much scrutiny about when sovereign states slaughter their own people, certainly in their recent histories are not playing ball with intervention. that becomes the big question playing out when people are dying in the streets of syria every day. >> was this just a matter of time slot. he's such a gifted speaker, and the speech itself didn't have
that ring and grandeur that many of his speeches do. the answers were five and a half minutes each for the three of them. it didn't seem like he was prepared for this sort of prime time moment. >> i don't know. and we don't know who the audience for these remarks were. it may have been the people back inside the room, rather than the american audience. the euro was like one of these adjustable rate mortgages. the thing the united states is asking europe to do, it's asking the taxpayers of northern europe to accept enormous new obligations to the south, including deposit insurance. it's asking the countries of southern europe to accept dramatic interest in their sovereignty. it will look more like american states than european countries. they will be under the supervision of germany. that's a big ask. and to keep things moving with,
a sense of optimism, with everyone behind him is full of despair, perhaps that's why he talked. >> i guess that's right. thanks very much to all three of you. appreciate it. still "outfront." mitt romney made a surprise announcement today late about marco rubio. and jerry sandusky's wife took the stand. the answer to her last question may say everything about whether or not he's found guilty. and the grand jury decides the fate of a father who beat a man to death. the father says the man was molesting his daughter. does it add up? our cloud is not soft and fluffy.

our second story "outfront." the changing story on marco rubio for vice president. the charismatic young senator from florida wasn't being vetted for romney's vp spot. anyone who's been partaking of any sort of taste of cable news over the past year would know that's a shocking revelation. a romney adviser confirmed the story to the washington post saying rubio was not being seriously considered. but mitt romney himself made three stops on his bus tour today. press corps in toe, he did not comment on this. for 12 hours, and then he did. >> the story was entirely false. marco rubio is being thoroughly vetted as part of our process. >> john avlon, reihan salan, why did he take 12 hours to say
that? >> that's a good question, i don't know. >> that's ridiculous. >> it's a campaign, there are a lot of moving pieces. i think there's a very good reason not to vet rubio, it's this. this election is either going to hang on the southwest as the swing region or the midwest as the swing region. i think right now it would make a lot more sense for mitt romney to pick tim pawlenty than marco rubio. you don't necessarily acknowledge that at this phase, fair enough. >> i do know why he waited 12 hours. because he was trying to clean up a political mess. someone told the truth, and it was an unnecessary insult and causing real problems for the campaign. >> you think he's really not vetting rubio? >> rule number one, earn lies. this is that going down. this is absolutely trying to clean up a political mess after 12 hours. it was an insult to the latino
community, marco rubio and the state of florida. >> no, it's not. i just finished iced tea for my tv one shows. romney got played, he should have stuck to his original script and that was, i am not commenting on our vp search. two people know who's getting vetted. here's the problem now, every day between now and when he chooses his vp nominee, he's going to get the question, are you also vetting chris christie? are you also vetting this person, that person? >> yeah, he set a bad precedent. >> he should have never walked into this. he should have said, i am the candidate, i make the call, simple as that, i'm not addressing this issue. >> rolaned, you know as well as i do. you have two senior staffers, reaffirming to the washington post, something as controversial as this, on the day that rubio's book launches. that's an intentional shot, a problem inside your own campaign. >> no, it's not. >> doesn't it happen in the
romney campaign? >> sure. >> they're supposed to be so perfect on this front. >> it would be a good pick. i think rubio would be a strong pick. not only bringing the generational gap, an outreach to the latino community which feels snubbed, but could bring other states in the mix. i don't know that it will be marco rubio, saying he's not in the consideration is an unnecessary insult. >> marco rubio has said multiple times that he was not going to be the vp nominee, he didn't want to be. so fine, stick with his word if it. all i'm saying is, you have opened this bomb, it's not some kind of insult to the entire latino community, he's one guy who's a junior senator. please. >> stop. >> let me read a quote. romney can spend all the money his hispanic strategists tell him too, they're taking him for a ride, there's nothing he can do to get the hispanic vote this cycle. >> here's how i see it db. >> in that case, forget marco
rubio? >> it's not a very big number of states that share the hispanic vote. california, florida. when you look at florida, that's a state that's moving up the gop column comfortably, colorado and nevada are the states. think about michigan, wisconsin, pennsylvania, ohio. those are the states that are going to determine who gets elected president. and those are not states in which the latino vote is going to be critical this time arrange. >> should he put another guy that looks and sounds a lot like him, good looking, thin, tall, vp? >> nobody is -- tell me, please -- raise your hand if you voted in 2008 because of joe biden? no. if you're going to vote for the presidential ticket, you're voting for the person at the top of the ticket. that's like saying the gop is
considering allen west, somehow black folks are going to say, oh, my goodness, let's run for the republican side. >> that's skagtly right. that's important, the vp pick is the first presidential decision a nominee makes, it says a lot about their values, about what they're thinking. some vp picks do make a huge difference. lyndon johnson in 1960 got jfk elected to the presidency. sarah palin hurt john mccain considerably. >> chris christie would be his fighter, his boxer. >> i think it would make a difference in pennsylvania with suburban voters throughout the northeast. i think it's not necessarily going to move the needle. the idea is that certain picks can reinforce a narrative of a candidate at the top of the ticket, and the thing is, you go midwest, blue collar with someone with a tim pawlenty or go for young larks tino and go for marco rubio? >> you go for somebody who's going to be able to tell your message on the stump regardless
who they are, not this nonsensical thing, just like it's insulting to say sarah palin discounted all women on the republican side. you pick the best person for it regardless latino, white, black or female. >> thank you very much. still ahead, north america no longer home to a very telling measure. the rise of asia. and what it means to america's not so rich. and does it add up, a man discovers his daughter being sexually assaulted. he attacked the man doing it, and the man died. the father can now be charged with murder. the grand jury's verdict next.

a new report shows us where the world's millionaires live. and for the first time, most don't live in north america. they live in asia. to be exact, 3,370,000 millionaires call asia home. 20,000 more than in north america. big victory for china, right? not so fast. because, you know, if you look at it north america includes canada. there's a lot of countries in asia. and if you break it down country by country, the u.s. is still number one followed by japan and asia, and then germany.

this was a case of self defense. it was a father that was defending his daughter. clearly he found a molester in the act. he alleges this molester was attacking his daughter and the only way to stop it was to drag him off and then in a fit of rage beat him. what's interesting here is the d.a. in this case says she has never seen a circumstance where the evidence was so clear-cut. here's how she described the evidence. >> a substantial amount of evidence showed that the witness statements and the father's statement and what the father had observed was, in fact, what had happened that day. the 5-year-old victim had sustained some physical injuries that were noted by the same nurse and were absolutely consistent with all of the witness statements. >> and the father was extremely remorseful in the 911 call. again, no charges, and most people understand why. >> thanks, martin.

out and say i'm going to do more the frustration of barny frank, the coauthor of the financial reform was palpable today. when he got his five minutes of questions. >> that assumes something special about the way you are that 345id us have to worry but we can't assume that's going to be the case for the mo financial institution. >> but i also said. >> that's not the question mr. dimon. please goent fill buster. is there a danger that this kind of activity in a financial answer tuition with less of a strong balance sheet might cause some problems? >> i don't know. but i think you should all take
comfort in the fact that american banks are better capitalized, the system is far stronger today. >> that wasn't the combe i requested. >> the commodity's future trading commission budget was 200 million for the year, the president proposed to raise it, do you think at the level of 180 million you can get smart regulation out of the cftc >> i have never looked at the cftc's budgets, i don't know what they need. so it would be almost impossible for me to comment on it. >> well, i'm disappointed. >> uh-huh. here we are. now just for the count, 699 days since the financial reform bill called dodd/frank was signed into law. and you know what, we still don't know actual wlee what should be in the 848 pages of the bill. there are still a lot of blanks. lobbyists are still fighting. there are unanswered questions, like things that got jpmorgan in trouble, derivatives. the financial tools that are supposed to hedge risk, but did not succeed in the financial crisis.
they were responsible for the crisis the country had. according to a monthly report by the law firm davis polk, only half the rules that would regulate derivatives in the dodd/frank bill have been finalized. that means regulators didn't know the rules, they didn't have the authority to look into jpmorgan's trade book. jpmorgan, the biggest bank is a lot more bigger and complicated than before. its assets are 49% bigger than before the financial crisis thanks to washington and regulators who pushed jamie dimon to buy washington mutual and bear stearns to save the system. the founder and ceo of paul mitchell is with us. great to see you, paul. this is amazing, 700 days after dodd/frank was passed. you may love the bill or loathe the bill. but this is insane failure. it's -- the lines aren't even filled in. >> total insanity. in fact, when you look at regulations, federal government, why don't you regulate yourself first? there's too many regulations.
last administration, we got into a war, because we were told things that weren't true. this administration, hey, no more lobbyists. no more pork barrel spending. why don't you regulate what our presidents are saying and make sure they're saying the truth before you start regulating more regulations on american business. it just doesn't seem right. and then you can't even come up with an answer. >> and then here we are in a situation where i mean, a lot of people have come out and supported jamie dimon that it was a mistake. but perhaps a mistake made because he successfully fought financial reform. >> yep. >> and his bank is too big to manage. >> interesting, isn't it? when this first came out, their stock was at $40 a share. it went down to $30 a share. now it's back up to $35 a share going back up towards $40. but i checked with my financial people. the dividend, was it affected at all by this? absolutely not. people make mistakes in business. just like our government has made some pretty big boo boos, both administrations, not in particular, okay? however, we correct the
mistakes. they made a boo boo, but at least the guy stepped to the front and said, i am the ceo, i'll take responsibility. even though he didn't make the actual decision where the money was invested. i feel, give the guy a break. he made a mistake. let him learn from the mistake. no dividends were affected whatsoever. and they can make up for it here in the months to come like any business would. >> right. now, i mean -- i like how you're an optimist. i'm sort of in the camp of hey, i'm glad the mistake wasn't so much bigger and then it would have hurt things. but when you say he took responsibility, i wanted to play another back and forth between him and barney frank and here it is. >> will the clawbacks for compensation -- is your compensation on the table for consideration of clawbacks? >> all of this -- this whole act will be reviewed by the board. >> specific question. >> my compensation is 100% up to my board. >> is it under -- mr. dimon you said there would be clawbacks for people responsible. is your compensation in the pot that's going to be considered
for that? >> they will do what they see is appropriate. i can't tell my board what to do. >> okay. but can he tell his board, i should be held responsible? i should have a claw back? i mean, isn't it sort of ridiculous not to? yes, he can. john paul mitchell systems is private. and i own the majority of the company. the last three years, we are very profitable and we grew every year. i told my board, if i did a good job, give me a $1 raise, that's it, period. leave the rest of the money in the company so we can have more affordable products, not big price increases. what he should say is, i'm paid a fortune. guys, if you think me take responsibility screwed things up a bit, give me little to no raise or bonus. i make a fortune anyway, let me be the fall guy and act accordingly. that's what he should do. >> that seems like the right thing to do. don't give me a bonus. because i was responsible. i'm sorry. i messed up. >> exactly. >> i want to put my money where my mouth is. >> or at least reduce it. that's the american way. >> all right.
>> that's what america is looking for. the prosecution in the trayvon martin case under fire tonight. answering questions about political motives in the case that she's been building against george zimer man. cnn's mark knee jam all acomes what appears to be a feud allen dish wits, she had been with it kal, did you do it appropriately. he had raised that question and apparently she did something pretty dramatic, he says, right? >> apparently she called harvard where he's a law professor and wanted him fired and disbarred
and apaerntly went railing against him for about i think he describes it as a 40-minute rant. so apparently the school told her basically reminded her of the first amendment and that he had every right to give an opinion and that's where we find ourselves. he then wrote about it and we've been having some issues as i've observed this case more and more, i've got some really concerns about the way the prosecution has been proceeding on this. so i simply wrote about it using professor dershowitz's story. >> and you made -- you said if she made that threat, it's frightening for a prosecutor in power to act that way and smacks of overreaching in an effort to chill any critics. >> exactly. >> what does this say about her and how she's handling the case?
obviously this is just an allegation, but what do you think it says more broadly? >> well, i'm very concerned. i, you know, i was first taken aback when she announced she was taking over the case. as the case has unfolded and we follow a timeline, we remember the prosecute for this circuit basically was on the case, was going to have a grand jury meet and determine it, and then he said he had a conflict of interest and mysteriously to me he was off the case. to this day we've never heard what this conflict of interest is. and then we have the grand jury basically being told to step down. and she was going to make the charging decision. and before she made that charging decision she goes on national tv, she announced that she was going to take the case. she says that she prayed with the victim's family before she condikted her i am portion investigation. that is a concern of mine. if it's impartial, why are you taken one side or the other.
why are you praying with a family? did you pray with both families. and she made her own charging decision. i'm concerned about that. >> do you think had the grand injury been allowed to take a look at the situation and the evidence that possibly they would not have dieted george zimer man and there was a fear that they had to charge so go around a possible grand jury. >> i think those are the questions to be asked. we have angela corey who is known as a prosecutor who really takes no prisoners. there's been a great deal of criticism in due val county, she is known to be a strong nra supporter, like the governor who appointed her, and they have not been supported generally by the community which seemly is now somewhat embracing them, one has to ask were there political questions being brought up. i think that's something of why
dershowitz was alluding to why were not all sides given and why did she go ahead and make the charging decision rather than allowing that to go to a grand jury. i brought up the issue in my piece about very simply. if you've got a skon servetive nra supporting gorner and you have a prosecutor appointed by him and you had a grand jury scheduled to go with an experienced prosecutor whose office was on the case from the beginning, why were they removed and why did a grand jury not be allowed to sit? were people asementing, the governor attempting to curry favor with a voting block that otherwise might have have been supporting him? i don't know. it's legitimate to ask questions, and being critical of somebody who grand stands, takes the stand and preens before the national public i think it's an appropriate question to ask and i think people should continue to keep asking.
>> we do want to note that angela corey has not yet formerly responded to the accusations. the jerry sandusky took the stand in his defense. this is the woman that one alleged victim said ignored his screams for help when he was being attacked by her husband in the basement. what did dottie sandusky say? with less chronic osteoarthritis pain. imagine living your life with less chronic low back pain. imagine you, with less pain. cymbalta can help. cymbalta is fda-approved to manage chronic musculoskeletal pain. one non-narcotic pill a day, every day, can help reduce this pain. tell your doctor right away if your mood worsens, you have unusual changes in mood or behavior or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. cymbalta is not approved for children under 18.

life, briefly talking about their six children and 12 grandchildren and how her husband was away a lot when she was raising the kids because of his job. she would see a lot of kids at the house. she then focused her testimony on the accusers of the case. she was shown photographs of the -- she said accuser number four, there's been a lot of focus on the defense case chipping away credibility on number four. she said he was a bit of a problem. and she also recalled a trip where she went to a bowl game, and this was an interesting incident involving this accuser who says that she came into the hotel room, and she basically broke up what was going to be a sexual assault. she said she came into the room, they were fully clothed and were having an argument about a
luncheon. >> did she say anything about her physical relationship with her husband, whether she could imagine him doing this? >> no. she didn't go there, erin. however, the very final question she was asked on cross-examination is can she imagine any reason why those accusers and mike mcqueary would come in and lie about what her husband is accused of doing, and she said, i don't know what they would lie for. >> what does that say? >> that's her final word, i don't know what they would lie for. >> she's sticking up for her husband. >> it sounds like there she's saying maybe they're telling the truth. >> i don't think that's what she intended by that. i think what she incontinueded by that was it was amazing to me that they would say such a thing because it cannot be true. i also think that putting the wife on the stand that frankly is not going to make a whole lot of difference in this case. because anybody would expect
that the wife would stand up for the husband in this situation. after all, she's lived with him for all these years and if in fact he's guilty of this, she's made a deal with the devil to look the other way. so i don't think the jurors are going to be surprised she testified the way she did. >> did she help or hurt him. >> i don't think she hurt him in any way. frankly i thought you would see a more aggressive cross-examination by prosecutors. it looks like they're just trying to end the case as quickly as possible and get the case to the jury. >> well, it means the jury could get the case, the case could be done tomorrow. >> for jerry sandusky. >> the judge is saying they may get it by noon tomorrow, if that's the case, i don't think he's going to testify, but this case is going so fast, on who knows. maybe he gets on the stand for an hour and he's off. remember all of the experts have been on and off in under an hour.

so when people think of kosher food, a lot of people might think of the brand hebrew national. their packaging has the word kosher all over it. hebrew national's parent company works with a number of approval groups to guarantee their kosherness. they said we certified thousands of companies but they're unique. it's a company that never take shortcuts, we want to recognize outstanding dedication to providing superior kosher foods. let's be frank for a moment. hebrew national might not be kosher. seriously. the american jewish world this week reported that 11 customers filed a 65-page class action lawsuit saying they have witnessed procedures that
rendered the meat being processed not kosher. first of all, pretty much nothing in a slaughterhouse is palatable, never mind kosher. this isn't just about religion, it's about money. to get that hebrew national kosher k, you have to pay. are local grocery stores selling kosher dogs for almost a dollar in other than the ones sitting behind it. that's why they're looking for compensation for anybody who purchased a hebrew national product over the past four years. hebrew national's slogan is we answer to a higher authority. they didn't think the authory would be a federal court. president obama answers tough questions about the world's economy in crisis.
