hello. i'm gregg jarrett. welcome to a brand-new hour. >> heather: i'm heather childers. topping the news, millions of american face a freak snowstorm that brought heavy tree branches down and knocked out power to millions of homes. live with the latest. >> gregg: massive search underway for this little girl. police believe she went sleep walking in the middle of the night right out of a relative's home and haven't been seen since. >> and man arrested for his 12th
drunk driving arrest. they are powerless to stop this type of repeat offender. >> gregg: we begin on the campaign trail. republican presidential candidates arguing over a number of controversial issues. all vying for a chance to move into the white house. right now herman cain is gaining momentum. steve is live in washington. steve, cain is number one in the latest iowa poll. how does he react? >> it's like his 999 plan for tax reform and it's resonating with recipe voters. >> i believe that i'm doing so well because i'm connecting with the people. one of the other misperceptions about my campaign is we just started a few months ago right after i announced in may. i actually been connecting with
people in iowa, new hampshire, south carolina and florida for over a year even before i made the decision to run. >> and ron paul who came in third in the iowa poll attacked romney for flip-flopping on important issues saying quote he'll have to answer for it. >> gregg: what are democrats saying about the gop race so far. >> reporter: they say the candidates are offering more of the same. the same kinds of policies that got us into the economic crisis in the first place. and they say president obama took on a difficult challenge when we first came to the white house. >> we were teetering on a great depression. he made tough calls so not to decline. this country can't afford to go back to the same policies, that romney and perry and all the republican candidates are offering. >> they are ready to tear down the economy in order to tear down the president. he asked for gop cooperation on
the jobs bill. >> gregg: steve, thanks. >> heather: from herman cain to governor rick perry, who is hoping to prove his critics wrong trying to make up for outcomes by agreeing to appear in five more. speaking about his decision during an exclusive interview on fox news sunday. peter has more from washington. >> reporter: texas governor rick perry now says he's participate in five more dpts but he admitted he was not the best debater. he says just because someone does well up on stage doesn't mean he'll do well in the white house. >> i really getting out and talking to people, just like i'm talking with you today. you have time to lay out ideas. we have a debator and smooth politician in the white house right now. that is not going to work out good for america. if you want to know how somebody is going to perform in the future, take a look at their
past. >> reporter: he thinks there is better ideas to spread his word including the flat tax but he says it's simple to figure out. you need to choose 20% tax rate or current tax rate and write it on a postcard. >> it's that simple to put it on that postcard. that is it. then people have the confidence. people have the confidence the job creators, this is plan is getting people back to work. this is putting confidence in the american entrepreneur. >> reporter: his rivalry with mitt romney seems to intensify. when chris wallace negative he is to go against romney's record. >> i don't get confused with telling the truth, someone might say that is negative. if we're telling the truth about someone. the truth is the truth.
whether it hurts your feelings or not. >> reporter: governor perry has 7% support in a new des moines register poll. he is not sweating it yet, it's a marathon. >> heather: catch the entire interview airing at 7:00 p.m. right here tonight on the fox news channel. >> gregg: from maine to maryland millions of people losing power after a rare snowstorm. trees snapping under the weights of the heavy snow. that storm being blamed for three deaths so far. states of emergency also declared in new hampshire, massachusetts and parts of new york. julie banderas is live in one of the hardest hit areas in west milferd, new hampshire? >> it's where they got 19 inches of snow and by curbside it's waist high as you can tell.
you take this wet and heavy snow and add it to the trees that are covered and weighed down. the leaving are still on them because, of course, we're still in fall. this is resulting in downed trees and downed power lines. that is biggest problem throughout the entire northeast. some three million people along the east coast are without power right now. here in new hampshire alone over 600,000 remain without power which we're told won't be restored until as late as next wednesday. in connecticut more than 750,000 customers without power actually break the record after hurricane irene hit the state in august. people could be without electricity for up to a week. in massachusetts highest snow totals, currently 650,000 people will spend the night in the dark tonight. at least three deaths have been blamed on this storm. states of emergency have been declared in new hampshire, connecticut and massachusetts and parts of new york.
in pennsylvania, a man was killed when a snow laden tree fell on his home while napping. in connecticut a person died in a traffic accident. in massachusetts a 20-year-old died who stopped when he saw firefighters stepped in the wrong place and was electrocuted. >> many roads remain closed because of downed trees and power lines. amtrak service has been suspended throughout the northeast. emergency officials are telling people stay off the roads if you don't have to travel today. you still have a lot of closed roads throughout the area. in fact here in west filferd, literally impossible for the satellite truck to get to the location today. we're not out of the woods but it looks like a beautiful day. >> gregg: my heavy lifting reporting is over for the day. >> gregg: lots of heavy lifting
out there. >> heather: yeah, right. >> and the snow for the storm may be melting and hundreds of airline passengers the damage is already done. nearly two dozen flights diverted to bradley international airport in windsor connecticut including this. a jet blue flight that sat on the tarmac for more than seven hours. passengers say the plane ran out of the water and the bathrooms had to be shut off. inside the airport other travelers they didn't fare too much better. >> i was going in and out, people are quite upset. >> we sat on the tarmac for four and a half hours. just got here a few minutes ago. we may be sleeping here in the airport. >> not a fun situation. >> gregg: we would like to see
what you are dealing with. if you have great pictures or videotape and want to share them to us e-mail to ureport at foxnews.com. give it's your name and location and brief description what you are looking at shot to viewers out in pennsylvania. saying good morning to ten inches of snow today. this is a sight you do not want to see over your morning coffee. it is pretty though. here is andrea ritter's backyard. she is in pennsylvania, north of allentown. i'm dreaming of a white halloween, i don't know. >> heather: on to another story, rescue crews temporarily suspended their search after three people missing after an explosion of a grain elevator in eastern kansas. they are waiting on specialized equipment.
the blast killed three people, severely injured to more. it could be seen from miles away. >> gregg: at least ten people are dead following a weekend of renewed violence between israeli and gaza militants. latest incident involving an israeli air strike on several militants in retaliation for an earlier attack, a deadly exchange, now jeopardizing any hopes of a possible cease-fire. leland vitter has more. >> the violence continued in sunday night. we had rocket fire out of gaza strip but israeli strikes. residents are still cleaning up for nearly 40 rockets that were fired on saturday evening. it all begin on wednesday with a power struggle between hamas and islamic jihad and had the possibility of spinning out of control. >> the rockets started falling
just as people were beginning to break for sabbath, worse damage was an apartment complex where an inferno continued. a number of cars and rockets fell right in the parking lot. one person was killed was doing what he was supposed to be doing is taking cover. that is when the shrapnel cut him down. residents are beginning to take stock of the damage. go ahead and looked at all the burned out cars here. you get a sense of the intensity and shrapnel, these are shrapnel holes. this is red hot metal that cut through these. if it does it to a car, you can imagine what it would do if it hit a person. >> we are looking at wreckage. they are launching missiles. this truck mounted rocket system that was used for the first time in the attack. israeli air force pounding away
at targets in gaza strip killing at least nine people and witnesses reported a number of explosions which would indicate those were, indeed, weapon storage facilities. >> theegyptians have been trying to negotiate a cease-fire but dealing with three separate groups inside the strip which is difficult to get a concrete deal. israeli officials there will be school on monday. they cancelled classes for sunday because they didn't want kids running around if there was going to be rocket fire. gregg, back to you. >> gregg: leland, reporting from southern israel. >> heather: following the death of moammar khadafy, much of the concern has surfaced here. this is in sirte where he was shot dead. many libyans seem to be losing confidence in the interim government and worried that their nation could plunge into a cycle of tribal violence and
retribution. david piper is streaming live from tripoli. what is the latest on the whereabouts of khadafy's son? >> reporter: he is believed to be neighboring nigr. he seemed to escape this country over the last ten days since his father was killed in sirte. we understand he has been in some kind of indirect negotiations with the international criminal courts. he faces allegations of war crimes there during the eight-month-old libyan civil war. we understand from the national transition council they want him to be brought back here to face justice but this time islam seems to want to negotiate with international criminal court and take his chances there rather than coming back here and facing a trial. >> heather: what is it like there now in libya? it sounds quiet.
you see traffic moving behind you? >> well, yes, tripoli is getting back to normal. very much like the rest of the country. we haven't had any reports of major incidents involving khadafy's followers over the last ten days since khadafy died. the country is now trying to move on. it's very slow process here. they still haven't announced a new government. they've got the democratic election they pledged in the next several months' time. also as you said there is concern about these revolutionary fighters. they really need to be told to give up their guns. we walked around tripoli the last few days and you see a lot of armed men on the streets even though it getting back to normal here. >> heather: thank you very much, david piper streaming live from tripoli. >> gregg: here at home five men busted in los angeles in connection with a gun heist involving the swat unit.
it happened earlier this month at an unguarded building using for training exercises. police believe they were low level burglars not expecting to find the huge gun stash. >> police in dallas, texas an unusual missing person case. they are searching for a ten-year-old girl. this little girl right here. she disappeared last night while visiting relatives. jasmine may have been sleep walking when they are away and they are concerned because the child was only wearing pajamas and temperatures get 39 degrees overnight. they are scouring the neighborhood. they are also using search dogs and helicopters. >> gregg: it has been almost three months since the occupy wall street movement first took shape. the latest on this weekend's demonstrations after police make several arrests at rallies
across the country. >> heather: this man has been caught from drunk driving a dozen times. >> and great white shark sinks his teeth into a surfer from california. dramatic tale of survival next. we are building a website by ourselves.

>> heather: time for a quick look at the headlines, more than three million people are still in the dark following the rare storm. heavy rain and snow knocking out power to homes and businesses all across the northeast. >> australian judge has ended a union strike for qantas airways. they say the flying could resume as early as monday. anti-wall street protestors in nashville continue to defy a curfew for a third night. like other rallies, police made no arrests. they say they will be surveying
the area. >> gregg: there are new questions over nearly $300 million fraud settlement involving citigroup. banking giant was accused of misleading investors back in 2007. they have since reached that settlement with the sec but a federal judge says hold on. citigroup, which made nearly $4 billion in profits in this quarter alone. maybe this isn't quite right. let's bring in brenda butner. good to see you. citigroup was peddling known as a collateralized debt obligation what happens? >> yes, it is a fancy term for what is basically an investment that was backed by mortgages. this is in 2007.
right we're on the cusp of the housing boom going bust. at the same time, citigroup is making a bet that the housing boom is going to bust with its own money. it does not tell the investors that it is betting against that. >> gregg: so you are peddling a product that the investors think the value is going up, but the person peddling it to you is betting it will go down. look, the judge is a federal judge, he has handled a bunch of these things. wait a minute. i'm putting the brakes on this thing because i'm not sure it's fair, citigroup is getting off too easy. he has issued ten questions he wants citigroup and sec he wants them to answer. how could a securities fraud of this nature and magnitude be the result of simply of negligence? good question.
what reason is there to believe this proposed penalty will have a did he tesht effect? what was the total loss of the victims as result of actions? and if the sec was unable to identify the people cull tackle have culpable for the fraud, why was this? it's clear this judge is very suspicious of this deal? >> he's been very skeptical of many sec settlements in the past. he took a part bank of america settlement and made them redo it. how can there will be a deterrent when it's such a small part of what goldman -- citigroup makes. it's a fifth of what goldman sachs had to pay. how can it be a deterrent. also no one has to admit to any wrongdoing. how is it negligent? why was it not admitted fraud?
so he has a lot of questions. he really takes the sec to task here. >> gregg: this would appear to be a scam investment. it wasn't device had accidentally. it was thoroughly deliberate. which makes it all the more puzzling that the sec would charge citigroup negligence based fraud rather than intentional fraud. mary shapiro, let's put her picture up on the screen. is she ready for prime time now? >> they have to make these settlements. they want -- there were a lot of settlements they were trying to get done. you never know exactly when their behind closed doors what they are trying to do. it surely would seem when investors lost hundreds of millions of dollars and
citigroup made a profit and made hundreds of millions of dollars on this investment there should have been stricter penalties against this company. >> gregg: not only is the peanltds suppose to be commensurate but they have to send a deterrent message for future bad behavior. $285 million sounds like a lot but when citigroup makes $3.8 billion in one-quarter a long, chump change. >> you don't have to look at the profit. you have to look what is the actual investment. what was going on there. brenda, thanks very much. >> a california beach is on high alert after a great white shark takes a giant bite out of a local surfer. this 19 inch bite out of a
surfboard. it suggested the charge was 20 feet long. his friend said it was an ordinary day of surfing at monterey state beach. until he heard his friend yell the words, no surfer ever wants to hear. >> when it came, and on top of the wave. he just started yelling, shark, call 911. he was a couple feet away and his arm was bleeding pretty badly. >> it might be possible he is not in the area anymore. they travel fast in the ocean. but for safety sake we will be posting these and recommending people not to go into the water. >> he was bitten on the neck and arm but fortunately he is expected to make a full recovery. >> hundreds of shoppers caught in the middle after police shootout.
it happened at a very popular resort town. >> heather: back on the campaign trail. can mitt romney win over die-hard conservatives. it's been lukewarm and our political panel weighs in next. with diabetes, it's tough to keep life balanced. i don't always have time to eat like i should. that's why i like glucerna shakes. they have slowly digestible carbs to help minimize blood sugar spikes, which can help lower a1c.

>> gregg: time for top of the news. northeast getting slammed by an early winter storm. some parts of new england seeing more than two feet of it. at least three million people are said to be without power. >> heather: a search and rescue in kansas after three people are missing after an explosion at a grain elevator. they say it's unsafe for anyone to be inside the facility. the blast killed three others and shook the ground for miles. >> gregg: a shootout outside a busy shopping mall.
no reported injuries but trapping shoppers. >> heather: two words that are likely to send shivers through parents, college tuition. consider this. the average cost of sending your child to university california campus could run about $12,000 per year. now, imagine twice as much by the year 2015. casey stegall says it could happen and joins us live from los angeles to explain why. >> reporter: it could happen not just in california but universities all around the country are facing similar problems. listen to this, according to the college board which is nonprofit student rights group, tuition rights have skyrocketed about 130% in last 20 years, that is four times hire of adjusted inflation and numbers speak for themselves. look at the breakdown. a brand-new report shows out the average cost for a state
university in america runs more than $17,000 a year when you factor in room and board. that is for an in-state resident. average for a four-year private school, look at this, more than $38,000 annually. students here in california saw the biggest hikes. tuition rates shot up 21% this year alone but escalating costs have sparked a growing debate between universities and lawmakers. many state leaders say it's up to individual universities to control costs while many colleges say they wouldn't have to raise tuition as much if higher education budget had not been flashed to shore up massive budget shortfalls. >> there is a lot we can do to really put our own shop in order we have set an ambitious goal of trying to get half a billion dollars out of inefficiencies
and redirecting those. at the same time, the state, i have a great deal of sympathy, they have cut us. >> to the greatest extent possible, the reductions we have been able to make or have been made we try to keep those out of the classroom and greater efficiencies in the way u.c. runs its operations. >> arizona and, with are among the states highest. lowest reported, south carolina and connecticut, but regardless of where you are, it is still costing a pretty penny. >> heather: thank you very much. >> gregg: herman cain is leading the pack. there is a new poll showing cain is earning 23% of the vote there
in the stay of iowa narrowly beating mitt romney but just a point. the two are essentially in a dead oh pete. margie omera joins us, adam geller, gop poll terrify and poll terrify for chris christie. adam let me start with you. if we dig deeper in the poll numbers, we find that romney earns the support of just 10% of those who say they definitely plan to vote in the caucuses. cain is at 27%. cain also dominates romney for those that identify themselves as very conservative. what do you make of cain's strength. >> cain has strength. when we look at republican primary voters we think of high value voter as being conservative most likely to vote. a lot of energized tea party supporters in that group. so it is a definite problem for
romney that he is getting those that are less enthusiastic. he is doing well among seniors but seniors are not encouraged as they normally are to caucus. romney has a lot of work to do. he hasn't really gone all out in iowa he is still hanging in there. he has a lot of work to do. >> gregg: they put out a story showing congressional conservatives are beginning to warm up to mitt romney. let me quote one part of it. the more romney maintains his course with the environment shifting around him, perry, cain and bachmann all having taking turns at anti-romney candidate, more he seems to be proving to political professionals he can weather a grueling campaign against barack obama. do you buy that? >> i think just having a few men's of congress, cain suffered from a real enthusiasm gap.
with republican primary voters are not excited about the field, how can you expect swing voters to be excited. i'm also not surprised that seniors are not enthusiastic to go to caucuses given the republican platform that is essentially getting rid of social security, leaving it up to the states. having medicare as we know it. i'm not surprised. >> gregg: rick perry was at the top of the polls when he entered the race is august. he has seen his numbers really crater from 38% now down to just 6% in a recent poll. in iowa he is at 7%. he does have a load of money. how would you handicap the chances of rick perry reversing his fortune? >> you know, is a good thing to have. multicandidate primaries, just because perry is going to attack romney, any votes that he could
shake off of romney don't necessarily go back to perry. they can scatter on other candidates, so in a multicandidate race it's tiff to win votes as going negative. as much money as you have it's a duff tough thing to do. multicandidates, really correspond with ballot success. i might rethink that. i think perry is going to have a tough time. he might be able to shake voters off of romney. >> gregg: that has to be record 38% to 38% to 6%. >> what is striking about the poll business experience is more important than having held legislative office. some of the voters come around and think that the president's policies, his policies haven't helped the economy, does that
give let's say a romney or herman cain a big advantage giving their business background >> i would ko infer something from the fact the republican primary voters saying they prefer business experience and the candidates are two with business experience. i don't think it translates to how swing voters are going to feel about the president's economic policies a year from now. >> gregg: they could be directly related? >> because people like cain right now, they like someone with business experience, and republican caucus goers in iowa, and general election swing voters may make a difference they may not prefer business experience. who cares more people like them and that will be clear whether obama or no matter who the nominee is. >> they care about job creation. the president has a deplorable
record on jobs and economy, it's true that swing voters will decide this thing. job approval rating is independents is 31%. >> gregg: got to leave it at that. good to see you both. thank you. >> heather: airport security screener fired after slipping a sexual note into a passenger's bag. is this just one tsa employee? or is this a bigger invasion by our government and quickly becoming a women's world. matching the glass ceiling as they take the reins of two of america's most iconic companies. ♪ ♪

tsa security screener fired after allegedly leaving a note in a female passenger's bag. here is what the note said reportedly. get your freak on girl. it was some response to sex story that was the luggage. a lawyer said the problem is more than just this one tsa worker. there is a bigger privacy problem with the government. jehmu greene and fox news contractor and it is holiday weekend and you are all look very sexy.

luggage that made the reservations that minute who paid in cash. >> and this tsa worker felt he was comfortable he or she had done going through the luggage but they could leave a note. >> this is not the first time it happened. it actually she is more than a lawyer whose note was found in, she is a very prominent feminist. very prominent blogger, she is going to talk about it. i think she is right. i followed the situation from the beginning. she is right, but it shouldn't get to be focused on this personal situation and the person being fired and the situation is over. this happens probably lots of times. there is a bigger systemic issue about it. these folks to go through our stuff.

resigns we will be at 18, 18 out of 500. >> i think we've come a long way and to have the two individuals is very impressive. i think whitman has her work cut out for her because the company is doing so poorly she could try to prove herself. >> with on outsiders coming in. >> i think it's generational. where was the woman in 1970s. before that there were any women other than secretary yal but now these women were business majors and science and engineering majors. >> heather: good for them. a driver in minnesota that doesn't know when to say when. this man has been arrested 12 d.u.i.s.

there was an election a few days ago there the islamists gained over 40% of the vote. if there is election here, it seems likely in several month's time they may get more of the vote because this is much moreç traditional than the more cost toll -- cosmopolitan knew tina. also concerns of islamists within the militia groups in this country. we've been traveling with them over several weeks there is an underlying feel that they follow strict islamic rules there. the head of the national transitional council has said he will be introducing strict sharia law. >> gregg: we are hearing reports that gadhafi's son, one of them, is in niger, what do you know about that? >> reporter: well, latest reports suggestsç that he is in fact in niger negotiating
through a third-party with international criminal court. he faces war crime charges there. he really wants to try to get to the hague rather than facing a tough trial in this country. particularly over the last week or so, when he knows that his father and his brother were both captured and killed by these revolutionary fighters. perhaps he would prefer a trial in the hague than one back here in libya. >> gregg: different kind of justice there. david piper, thanks very much. >> heather: mortgageç giants set to pay back their multi-billion dollar bailout. why they may not be dunnbore rowing yet >> gregg: major milestone for one of -- college football's greatest coaches. why joe paterno may be the best in the business. >> heather: vice president biden preparing for a new

-- but there might be a catch. you may remember last week the white house announced they still want them to help homeowners refinance at today's ultra low rates. with so many u.s. homeowners struggling experts worry that the mortgage giant may come back to borrow more. let's bring in brenda buttner anchor of bulls and bears. thanks for joining us.ç before we get to this latest plan from the white house. i want to talk about this 124 billion dollar bailout. are they going to be pay in back? >> they are making a profit. it has been a long time in coming. they were the disaster of the whole bailout. they were seized in 2008 and they just have always been a problem essentially. they guaranteed trillions of dollars in mortgages. and many of them just went under. and many are for homes that
could foreclose now. it is hard to believe they might be about to make aç profit. but, they have to -- in order to pay back the government, they have to pay a 10% dividend on money they borrow from taxpayers. they have to borrow on money that they borrow from taxpayers. >> how does that even allow to happen to begin with? fanny and freddie borrowing from taxpayers to pay taxpayers back. how is that allowed to -- exist. >> it is part of the wonderful thing that we call tarp. >> giant circle. >> exactly. but they are making a profit. it is possible they may be able to pay something b@sk. now president obama wants to help those homeowners who are underwater, which means their homes are worthless than they
owe on them. to refinance essentially -- [ talking over each other ] >> which makes a lot of sense for a lot of people. if that happens, it is very possible that fanny and freddie may have to come back and ask for another 50 billion dollars from taxpayers there we are in the hole again. >> any option to an individual that? >> we could say no. >> heather: is that a possibility? >> we are not good at saying no in washington.ç >> heather: interesting that both the obama administration, republicans and democrats are both saying that they need to stop this. on the other hand you have president obama on monday last week saying he wants to refinance these mortgages. and fannie and freddie would be responsible for doing that. >> and he wants to help out student aids and do more stimulus. all of this is more spending.
>> heather: like talking out of both sides of your mouth? >> it is more spending is what it is. we go farther in debt. that's a very easy formula to follow. either you have to raise taxes or go -- or borrowç more and go more in debt. it is not a difficult formula to follow. >> heather: brenda buttner, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> gregg: there is a new king of college football. penn state coach joe paterno may be the best in the biz after seth the record for the most wins of any division one coach. dramatic win in the snow versus illinois this weekend giving paterno his 409th win. he says the milestone means a lot, but added he never could have done it himself. he really is probably the best ever to roam the sideline. he wind on the sideline yesterday whenç they won he was up in the press box.
he still suffering a little bit of an injury. >> heather: a lot of big sporting events this past weekend and the end of last week. >> gregg: we are keeping an eye on st. louis, getting ready for the big parade. cardinals of course. >> heather: i was pulling for the rangers. >> gregg: why would you do that? growing my wife is texas she too. -- >> gregg: my wife is from texas she too. >> heather: what is usually a day of sugar overload a healthy makeover of sorts. atheist group up inç arms over memorial crosses honoring soldiers on a utah highway. the group wants them taken down. should the supreme court take up the case? >> since the civil war, crosses have been erected by federal government at federal cemeteries to honor those killed in wars.
>> you are offended? >> i am offended this is one where i may, if we get to get before the supreme court, i as an attorney general might say i want to argue this case.

makeshift tent city. thousands homeless still holding out hope finding loved ones. death toll stands at 596. >> gregg: we could find out tomorrow whether the united states supreme court will take up a case involving roadside crosses in utah. the 12 foot high crosses placed to honor fallen state troopers. a group called americanç atheists is suing to take them down. >> they should be honored. but they can be honored in a way that doesn't emphasize religion. the first amendment of the constitution says, government and religion shouldn't mix. >> gregg: joining us joey jackson and robert shaw defense attorneys and former prosecutor. good to have you. first amendment, let's put it up this is the part at issue congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free excercise thereof.
if it is on public property robert is this the government establishing religion? >> i'd say yesç for a couple of reasons. the crust fix used here is a -- the crucifix used is a clear indication of a religion. there's no other symbol i believe in the world that week speaks to religion more than the crucifix. you are putting 12 foot high crosses on public land. >> gregg: are you telling me all those crosses at arlington national cemetery would have to be removed? >> absolutely not. at arlington cemetery you have crosses, other religious symbols that are there as well áy of religions that are there in the united states and across the world. but, you expect to see crosses at arlington national cemetery you don't on the side of a
road in utah. >> it is not the size of the symbol it is the significance. let's look at the test. is the government endorsing a religion? i think it is a resounding no. when i see a symbol like this on a utah highway the first thing that comes to mind is not the government is endorsing religion. oh my goodness giving preferential treatment. it is a clear symbol and indication they are honoring those who have fallen that is the con know take it is meant -- connotationç that it is meant. i get it, are we going to turn the constitution on its head because a couple atheists say this goes too far. it shows the government is prefering. what was astounding in the opinion and i'm sure you've read it at least three times. >> gregg: oh yeah. >> they were really talking about and saying this would demonstrate that they would prefer christians in their hiring practices and christians in giving them
preach reference shall -- preferential treatment and how government would respond to them. i think that's outrageous. >> gregg: the united states supreme court decision which came down last year, a very similar case involving a cross in sa miego. the court sort of side-stepped the main issue. but they wrote about it. a 5-4 decision which upholds the use of a cross. justice kennedy wrote: the goal of avoiding governmental endorsement does not require eradication of all religious symbols in the public realm. if the high court takes this case, i'm willing to bet they are going to side on the side of the cross. >> luckily for me i read that today. it was one cross in the desert, i believe had been there since 1934. there was an issue in the sense they transfered the land it was on. >> gregg: which is why i said they sivestepped it. but they talked about the
case. >> a good point is when the first cross was put in utah, it was private land. in 1998, somebody said, with we should be careful of where we put this. >> bob it could be it is one cross. understand, in this case these are not multiple crosses that are all together. these are long the roadside at differing places. also remember this, there are 14 crosses. of the 1411 are mormon people. more -- of the 14, 11 or mormon people. mormon people doesn't recognize the cross this has no religious meaning the connotation is clear it is nonreligious, they;hshould stay. >> federal courts have upheld the use of in god we trust on coins, dollar bills and so forth. even though atheists brought the same argument in front of those judges. the high courts have said, it amounts to a national motto or slogan that is secular in nature.
the cross comparable? >> i'm a christian raised a christian to me for someone to tell me that the cross is secular is offensive to me, because it means so much more. >> it means many things to many different people, not just you. >> that may be true. what i'm saying is, the fact that someone is trying to secularize something, like the cross and say this is justç to honor somebody. again, i think we are walking a fine line. >> forget what it means to all of us. what does it mean in the context of how it is used here? they are honoring fallen people. the connotation is get is just that honor, that respect. with we need to respect the fact they put it there to recognize those who have died. >> some of those explain officers may not have been christian. >> at all. >> robert, joey, we'll wait and see how the supreme court decides. >> thanks. >> heather: we take to you a live situation. we mentioned it moments ago this is the world champs,
st. louis cardinals their victory parade. they won in game 7, 6-2 over the rangers.ç by the way gregg it was the most watched world series game since the red sox win in 2004 with 16.6 million watching friday night's game. i was watching, were you? >> i was. these are smaller markets st. louis, texas, it is not los angeles, it is not new york, it is not boston. and yet, people were riveted to the world series. game six was the game that everybody will remember. >> yes. >> gregg: the cars came from behind. texas rangers got to feel sorry from them they were one strike away from winning the whole thing, twice.ç >> heather: the 9th inning it all changed. >> congrats. >> heather: if you think the cost of sending your child to college is already astronomical. consider what some parents
might face a few years from now. california now considering cuts that might end up doubling the tuition of some uc students by $2 -- by 2015. casey stegall joins a lesson about the skyrocketing costs of higher education to say the least. why has it risen so dramatically? >> reporter: there is no simple answer. the experts blame a number of reasons. everything from overpaid professor to funding of athletics toç decreased funding from the states. take the university of california system, it operates 10 campuses around california. it is one of the largest higher education outfits in the country. uc says it is receiving nearly a billion dollars less from the state than it used to. therefore, must find other ways to bring in that cash. >> we're applying all things that we are doing on administrative efficiencies
and on new revenue sources. i mean things like taking more nonresident students. looking for more in our private philanthropy, more indirect costsç recovery out of our contracts and grants. >> reporter: the average cost for an interstate student at one of the uc schools right now can range from $26,000 to $30,000 a year that is tuition and room and board. it is more than $10,000 already above the national average. >> heather: that's interstate. what is the national average? what do the numbers look like in other parts of the country? >> reporter: you may not believe your eyes. there's a new report from the group call the college bore. it is a student advocacy group. we have a graphic that paints a picture of how grim the situation really is. the average cost, accordingç to that group, for a state
university tuition in america runs more than $8200 a year. add on as you can see in yellow, additional $8800 or so for room and board that makes the total more than $17,000 a year. the average for a private school, take a look at this, more than $38,000 annually. >> we've done public opinion research on this a majority of americans now believe that significant numbers of people who are qualified to go to college don't go because of the price. others just go to the cheapest ajeát+hsru be best with qualified for. others go part-time instead of fulltime so they can work. >> reporter: there is this battle brewing obviously between state lawmakers and a lot of universities. the folks at the universities say we need more money from the state. you have folks at the state saying we are hemorrhaging money and we have to find ways
to make cuts. and the universities themselves should be able to control their own costs. again, this is not a situation unique to california. it is happening all over the country. a pretty penny to go to school these days in this country. >> heather: pretty penny or two or three, thank you casey stegall. >> reporter: or 20. >> gregg: when i went to the you have ofç california, back in the 70s, it was free. i to law school there and it was free. now -- and now of course a lot of money. presidential candidate rick perry committed to participating in at least five upcoming debates after his campaign floated the idea he could skip some to spend more time with voters. how this strategy could help or hurt his chances of winning the republican nomination, straight ahead. >> is it the mitt romney on the side of against the second amendment before he was for the second amendment? was it before he was before the social programs from the

joining us fox news contributor susan estrich science. you wrote a column on it this week. a very good column. i want to talk to you about that. do you think perry's decline in the polls actually corresponds with what many regarded as a poor debate florida? >> i actually do. he came in, there was enormous enthusiasm. a lot of conservative republicans, tea party supporters thought here's our guy. michelle bachmann is hard to sell as a credible president. and there was a lot of hope and expectation around rick perry. and he came in and frankly he stumbled. running forç president looks easy, unless you are doing it. as i've said before, what do we say to our kids when they stumble? we don't say attack the person who is running the game or blame the bicycle.
we say get back on and get better this is how you learn to be a good candidate. >> gregg: you don't attack the moderators or format that sounds like a vacuous excuse. it is true that tough debates can break a candidate. the experience can also make a candidate better. in fact, you point out barack obama as a good example, explain. >> well, these can be difficult, i'm been through guys on the stage, one minute to answer, tricky format, nobody says it is easy. but being president isn't easy either. running in a general election isn't easy. the advantage of these debates, i've always thought, if you take them seriously, work?j% h, hone your message, then you can end up at the end of the process being a much better candidate than you were at beginning. i think having watched barack obama go through his
campaign, even bill clinton, they were much better at the end than at the beginning. and i think for rick perry, this is a mistake for two reasons. th. but second, it sends the message of quitter, sore loser. it is all bret baier's fault that's not what we want in a president. >> gregg: you decided to offer the governor a bit of advice. here's part of what you wrote in your column: >> gregg: susan, do you think it is possible that rick perry just doesn't have the communicationç skills required for this job? >> well that's the message he
is sending to people. if i were rick perry, i would -- not that i am, i would come out and say look folks, i'm used to governing. i'm used to making tough decisions. i'm not really as comfortable as some others in this format. but guess what, i'm gonna work harder. i'm going to do better. i'm going to listen to the criticism. i'm going to take it to heart and do my best. instead what he seems to have done and his campaign seems to have done is to say this isn't a measure of anything thispo isn't a test of anything. you0ññsix millionç people who watch that fox debate you must have been idiots to think that you were doing something useful. i just think, you know, i'm a democrat, why should i worry, but it he is really shooting himself in the foot. and i think handing the nomination to mitt romney. >> gregg: susan estrich, great column as always. thanks for being with us today.
