2:02 pm
you? >> i lost the contest, because my secret santa was supposed to take off on a wire and it crashed. >> that's so cirque de soleil. >> did you practice that before, the takeoff? >> we set it up once, yeah. i had to get the park service to agree to send it over the river, out to a tree next to the river. it's a long story. it's a sad story. the nice thing that happened, though, on christmas day, my kids and i went to an orphanage we go to every christmas, and instead of stealing christmas presents to take, i asked them to take their presents to take them to the kids, and they did. it was heartwarming and sad. there's too many children out there that need parents. >> that's very sweet, bob. bob is a good guy. >> and you can shoot me tomorrow. >> eric, how about you? i know you did something fabulous. >> we had the family over.
2:03 pm

2:05 pm
>> it's not what you think what it is, bob. >> it's a walk that you can do. i gave to my husband a book of all sorts of ideas from friends of ours who live in new york about things to do in new york. like our own personal guide. he loved it. and then i cleaned my coat closet and organized it with labels. >> why do i know that -- only you would like to do that at christmas. >> she's euphoric about it. her face lit up. >> you got excited when that container store opened up. >> i'll take you down there, the high line. this is the only picture we had from christmas. that's henry, him wearing the stocking that eric, my secret santa, gave to me. >> what dana has not told you -- she and her husband -- dana and her husband brought the car up from washington. it costs you $150 a minute to park in the garages.

2:07 pm
altercation, are you the bad guy? you end up having to make a decision. i buy her a gift, she buys me a gift. it eliminates returns. i got these awesome blue suede hightops. aren't those amazing or what? >> elvis liked 'em, too. >> that was my christmas eve. then on christmas, i sat around, drank a lot of wine, watched terrible movies. >> there was not much on. >> i watched "crazy stupid love." one of the poverty movies ever made. >> i think it's better than "love actually." >> then i watched "due date" for the third time. best movie. >> you need some new movies. >> i love chevy chase's "christmas vacation." >> i thought i would push
2:08 pm
myself, and cook for christmas, right, which is interesting. we were talking about it in the greenroom earlier. me cooking involves getting everything that's premade and put it in nice dishes and heat it up, but i actually had to cook the ham, because even it looks cooked it's not. i got it at the store, he said, you got to brush it with the glaze, i kept checking on it. i had the mac and cheese, and it turned out. i made dinner for my in-laws. >> every one of us signed this picture from all us here. he was an intern here. he was very moved by the whole thing. he appreciated it. only one that didn't sign it was the boss. we couldn't find him to do it. >> instead of doing presents, i sent my family to the rockettes
2:09 pm
christmas show. >> oh, yeah. that's where i'm going tomorrow. >> again, bob, that's not what you think. >> it's not? oh, okay. >> greg, you might like this. i thought, well, i should have a child, what should you do if you a child? you should make them work. i made her sweep out the chimney for santa. she hated the santa outfit. >> why do you put clothes on dogs? >> it's cute. >> it's cute for you. yesterday i saw a guy walking a great dane in an outfit and looked like a hairy man on all fours. it reminded me of a certain time in mexico i don't want to talk about. >> ever see those films where they walk around with lampshades on their head? >> that's not a lampshade. >> sometimes when you clip the dog's ears, you got to make sure
2:10 pm
he doesn't lick the -- >> you can't lick your own ear? >> oh, yeah? want to see? >> any gifts perhaps that you got that you weren't psyched about? >> i got hepatitis. >> oh, my god. >> no gift means no return. >> you think so? eric, anything that you were happy about? >> my wife gave me cuff links. it's all good. >> what was the big different for you? >> i made the entire mistake in giving my son gifts. he wanted some bose speakers. the house has been shaking. >> what does he listen to? >> oh, hip-hop. >> have you seen not to earphones, they're $250 that
2:11 pm
blast everything out? i got both of them those things. you could hear them sitting next to them. it was ridiculous. >> isn't that annoying on the train? >> oh, yeah. i told my kids, i don't want want anything for christmas, put together your money and give it to poor kids. you know how much they gave? $4 and something. >> he got a nice down jacket. >> like if you were seal hunting or something? >> he means well when he says that. and two different lingerie outfits from my former mother-in-law. >> your former mother-in-law gives you lingerie. there's something seriously wrong. >> coming up, president obama calls himself lazy, but why would i say that plus, bill marr

♪ >> welcome back to "the five." this is unusual. i'm in the b block. if you follow television, you know why, because this is the time between christmas and new year's when ratings don't matter, therefore i'm up here. but barack obama got a wonderful christmas present. he surged into positive territory in his job approval
2:16 pm
rating, 45 in favor of him, 45 against, as high as 48 negative, forgave positive. eat your heart out guys, the revolution is come. >> 47 in favor, 45 against. >> yes. he also admitted in a conversation with barbara walters, a sudden surprise. have we got the tape of that? >> what's the trait you most deplore in yourself and the trait you most deplore in others? >> laziness. >> you're lazy? >> you know, it's interesting, there's a deep down underneath all the work i do, i think there's a laziness in me. i mean, it's probably if, you know, growing up in hawaii, and it's sunny outside and sitting on the beach. >> yeah, brothers, i know what that's like. i don't think anybody's going to
2:17 pm
accuse barack obama of being lazy. i think what he was saying, traditionally in hawaii, you get laid back there. >> bob, i've never been to hawaii, because i don't need the hassle of the visa process, but the fact is this is an attack on hawaii, saying if you live there you're lazy. that's wrong. i would throw him out of that little country. the problem with hawaii is this, this is where everybody goes to retire, or they want to retire. so if you're born there, in a way he's right, you're already where you want to retire, hence why work? he actually is correct. >> first of all, there's nothing wrong with hawaii. it's amazing. great weather, great food, great waves, a little macadamia nuts and -- >> hula skirts. >> i had my honeymoon there.
2:18 pm
what do you think about what barack obama was saying? >> it's one those things, when you're preparing the president for his interview with whoever it might be, especially if it's something like, this it's long-ranging, sitting next to your wife, it's like you can come up with every question under the sun. one of my favorites was, barbara walters asked president bush, if you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be? he said, i'm not a tree, i'm a bush. you can't prepare people for that. >> don't let anybody say he doesn't have a sense of humor. >> what about we should we know that might be considered a negative quality? then you try to think of something. president obama is the opposite. i'm just lazy. manning if he applied himself what he could do. >> i agree with you, bob, he's not lazy. he loves golf 90 times since he's been president. loves snorkeling, the shaved ice
2:19 pm
also. he's not really lazy, he just doesn't like to work. he's busy playing. >> oh, come on. being president, you have to work. >> i loved her reaction, when -- if you watch it back, if we had the body expert here, exactly, that's exactly what his problem is. there's some back history there. their chemistry is wonderful. i think they had a great time. >> what is it about women? the guy is president of the united states, and she's still looking at him like you can do better. what does that say about the rest of us? she's looking down on him, and he has the hard itself, greatest job in the world. >> he likes fatty foods, hamburgers and things -- >> eric, i want to say one thing, it's true he doesn't work as hard as you, you anchor 15 shows on fox a day, and that's a
2:20 pm
lot of work. michelle obama had something to say during the interview, which was also revealing as well. >> recently said something that i thought was very interesting for other women to hear. you said you put your own self highest on your priority list. that's not selfish. >> no, no. it's iraq. something that i've found that i needed to do for quite some time, even before the presidency, and i found it in other women similarly situated, balancing career, family, trying to do it all, and a lot of times we slip pretty low on our own priority list, because we're so busy caring for everyone else. >> dana, what do you think? >> i think women try to find the best thing that works for them. i think it was bold for her to say that, because a lot of women don't put themselves first, but i think if the mom isn't happy at home, the wives aren't happy, no one in the house is happy. >> boy, ain't that the truth.
2:21 pm
>> the answer that would have been scripted would be my children. of course the girls are doing great, growing up in the public eye, wonderful girls. i think it was bold of her to say this. i know a lot of people might disagree with it. >> i know what she means by it, because if mama isn't happy, no one's happy. make sure things are going well there and it filters down. >> before i ask the two grinches here what they think, i think her message was women across the country that carry on multiple tasks, work, raise the children, do not put themselves first, and once in a while they need to do that. okay, grinch. >> later on in the interview she said -- they started focusing more on working out, hanging out with her girlfriends -- i'm sorry -- spending time with her girlfriends, going out to dinner, personal time. look, he's eloquent, she's
2:22 pm
beautiful, she's the first lady, she's fantastic, has a great vegetable garden. >> wow. >> in my opinion, laura bush had more downtime. >> she does a lot of things with veterans. does it quietly. laura bush did it, too. they both are magnificent that way. okay, grinch, the real grinch. >> i totally agree with her as a stay-at-home mom i need to make time for myself. i usually make chamomile tea, a bubble bath. then i down a quart of jack daniels and scream at the mirror. >> and what does the iguana do? >> terrified in a corner, mr. sprinkles. >> sounds like what you need to do to get your priorities right, except put the booze third. a lot of interesting news was buried over the weekend, hoping nobody would notice.

the voters rights act passed, important gains, but there's states that have voter id law. some are pending approval by the justice department. that's the rule under the law. but on friday night, without enough explanation to me, the attorney general said that south carolina is going to be sued, taken to court, that they're not going to approve their voter id law. why south carolina and not other states? >> i think the bigger question is, the assumption here there's minorities don't have ids, so when you ask for ids that's how bigoted. does that mean when i go in and get id for booze, want to rent a car, anytime somebody asks for my id that's discriminatory, and anytime you run a business you're a bigot because you ask for id? the logic is wrong. ids help improve voting. it doesn't stop. >> if you look at the gallup

nashville, where protesters exchanged gifts, or rather fists. well, i guess this beats watching "diehard" for the tenth time. of course this isn't how all the protesters spent the holidays. i'm sure some of them went home to lecture their parents on corporate greed after receiving a new iphone. the u.s. is ranked first in the giving, while the rest of the world gives 1% or less of their national income to charity, america doubles that. that's, like, 2%. the point is simple, despite bad times we're still the most generous place on earth. yes, we're not just pretty faces. despite a protest movement that labels capitalism as greed, a free market spreads the wealth far better than a european state has dependency that trumps charity. anyway, i don't like to brag
