the track. we are expecting it to move out of the area just in time for the race later on this afternoon. how warm is it going to get out out there? warm through parts of the tennessee valley. memphis seeing a high of 92 degrees. very warm. 90's across texas and even kansas city expecting a warm temperature at 90 degrees. not too bad for us here in new york city. expecting a high of 69 degrees. we had a cold front move through parts of the northeast. that's the reason why it's cooler out there. all of that warm air will be spelling trouble across parts of the center of the country. showers and thunderstorms starting up. some of those thunderstorms unfortunately will turn severe. it is that time of the year. the month of may is the peek of the season. kansas, parts of nebraska. and also portions of iowa and southern minute society. large hail, damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes will be possible today. otherwise, temperatures on the

3:08 am
future. [cheers] >> i believe in you. and i believe you are going to do great thing and i believe your generation will remind the world just why it is america is the greatest nation on earth. yesterday we found out that the unemployment rate is down to 8.1% which sounds good for incumbent president but mitt romney is making the case it is only going down because people are giving up and you can't be unemployed if you don't want to be unemployed. that's the case he made yesterday in pittsburgh. >> this is a time of concern for america. we need to be encouraging the american people to come together, not dividing one another. some of the rhetoric is too hot for both sides of the aisle. got to lay off that. talk about the things that bring us together. >> a lot can change and a lot will change between now and november. the obama campaign clearly thinks ohio and virginia have the ability to tip the scales one way or the other. even though romney spent time in both stays already now that
3:09 am
the president is going to be flying in town on air force 1. the stakes have been raised. back to you. >> they sure have. we will be talking to dick morris about that as well. >> the president making an appearance in virginia. to taught some of these new jobs numbers. get to his sound in a moment. new numbers out on friday did not look favorable for the obama administration. mitt romney quick to pounce on these numbers down to 8.1% which on the surface down from 8.2% probably good. the devil is really in the details here. >> why did the number go down? 342,000 americans left the workforce. how to spin it as a real positive when you have only got 115,000 jobs created. on the other hand, what mitt romney said, still came quite a bold statement. and prediction. listen. >> there was some news that came across the wire that said that the unemployment rate has dropped to 8.1%. normally that would be cause for celebration.
3:10 am
but, in fact, anything over 8%, anything near 8%. anything over 4% is not cause for celebration. but, in fact, the reason it dropped from 8.2 to 8.1 was not because we created a lot of jobs. as a matter of fact, only 115,000 net jobs were created. well beneath what it was expected to be. it should have been in the hundreds of thousands but it wasn't. the reason the rate came down was because about 340,000 people dropped out of the workforce. so many became discouraged they stopped looking for work. and if you stop looking for work, the stats tuitions are able to say the unemployment rate is lower now because not some people want work. >> interesting predictions our own ed henry looked into his time as governor of massachusetts and even when he was governor he only managed to get unemployment down to 4.7%. 4% is a long shot. the last time that happened
3:11 am
was under president bill clinton. >> specifically what i was talking about he went on to say that we ought to be creating some 500,000 jobs a month if this recovery were where it ought to be. that's where i thought he really perhaps overreached. >> overpromised. the president also talked about the jobs numbers. he basically said that he can't do it alone. he was calling on congress to do their part. >> we're going to recover all the jobs that were lost during the recession. and if we're going to build a secure economy that strengthens the middle class we have to do more. that's why next week i'm going to urge congress as they start getting back to work to take some actions on some common sense ideas right now that can accelerator even more job growth. my message to congress is just saying no to ideas that will create new jobs is not an option. there is too much at stake for us not to all be rowing in the
3:12 am
same direction. >> he went on to site the numbers from his administration 4.2 million jobs created in this recession over the past time and trying to climb out of this dark hole he says. >> i mean, of course, that he says just saying no things that create jobs is not an option. critics would say that's exactly what the president has done saying no to the keystone pipeline he has said no so something that would create thousands of jobs. >> they say if the percentage of adults in the workforce were the same today as it were when he came into office we would have an 11.1% unemployment rate. the numbers going down is really all about people leaving the workforce. that's coming up. >> we will have discussion on this from different experts on jobs numbers including governor huckabee dick morris and others. you may not have much room to negotiate salaries. employers now asking you to turn over w-2 forms to prove

(bike bell)
3:16 am
>> welcome back to "fox & friends" as we just reported. it sounds like this could be good news, right in the unemployment rate falling slightly from 8.2% down to 8.1% last month. only 115,000 jobs were created. does this mean the economy is stuck in neutral or is the prognosis even worse than that? >> joining us from d.c. this
3:17 am
morning. fox news contributor and business leader and mentor amelia antoinettey. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> do i think mitt romney may have overreached on what he thinks would be a good number. but it's hard to celebrate this if you are the president. isn't it? >> oh, absolutely it is. it is is really hard to celebrate if you are actually anybody in the workplace or actually a business owner. the reality is the numbers are not as strong as they need to be. they are not. we are off by miles on this because we have got so much to catch up for. and some people run employed. we all know somebody right now who has been unemployed far longer than they ever wanted to be. >> let's dive in some of the numbers. you are in the workforce and you work in a maul business sector you see some of these companies hiring or not hiring. we heard companies slowing down of the hiring process. what's to account for that? by all accounts manufacturing coming up. maybe construction picking back up. why the slow down? >> a lot of it -- first of all definitely lack of resources. definitely lack of predictability. also the over bourbon some to
3:18 am
predict what takes on emilyee. part time or 1099 or other means to bring on employee to see if i really want to invest in them and not put myself and commit myself for the regulations for a w-2 hire. >> not only is it tough to get a job. impossible to get a raise in this economy. employers are making it worse. now a new trend is asking for new hire's w 2 so they can prove what they made in their previous job. i had this happen just a couple of years ago, not here. but i was stunned by it and i said absolutely not. is this legal? and is it a growing trend? >> well, it is legal. i think this is definitely where big companies and small companies kind of divide here. because in reality, for me as a small business owner, i am far more liable for asking that than i would ever want to be. because i basically hire in the salary that i can afford. even if you may be great and fabulous.
3:19 am
the reality is my budget is my budget is my budget. i need to find other lifestyle things that i can do as a small business person to entice you to work for me. it can't just be about what the salary is it's important, yes, but validating it for me not as important as what it exposes me now that i have to protect that information and now it opens me up to huge confrontation with my employees. i don't want that in my office. >> exactly other employees in the workforce to say i made this, you made. this look at what i'm making right now. amelia, always great to he see you. thanks for getting up earl little with us and bringing energy to the show. >> any time. >> ahead, it was a shock to fans around this country when we learned nfl legend junior seau took his own life. so can concussions really lead to suicide and why is it such an alarming trend former nfl players? we'll hear from a neurologist on the matter ahead. >> then they defended our freedom and paid the ultimate

reporter lisa guerrero does some investigating. >> we would like to ask you about the car you are leasing right now for close to $1,000 a month. do you think that's appropriate? >> all i could tell you is that the lease was approved by the house. >> don't you think in these tough economic times that the taxpayers are going to have a hard time understanding why you would be driving a lexus on their dime? >> i'm driving a hybrid car as required by the rules. i'm not violating any rules, i work hard. >> there was outrage about the gsa's lavish spending. where is the outrage over this
3:46 am
one. why should taxpayers be footing the bill here. notly good morning, sir. >> good morning, sir. how are you? we were talking about trillion-dollar annual deficit. this is not a tremendous amount of money. it's about the principle. why should congressman get $1,000 to lease a car on the taxpayer dime? >> look, this is solyndra, the chevy volt, and the gsa all rolled into one. you get $1,000 a month for a lease if you get in an e.p.a. approved car. and you can go over that thousand dollars if you use your car as a mobile office. anyone want to guess what number upwards of 99% of these people are claiming it's a mobile office and therefore can go above the $1,000? it's really -- you are right. it's not a ton of money in the grand scheme of deficit things. but, given the absurdity of people making $170,000 a year. getting $1,000 a month from a
3:47 am
car from us is a little absurd. >> i'm a car guy. i know you can lease a car, a pretty good car anywhere from 3 to $500. it is shocking to see some of the sticker numbers for the folks. there you go the average american's monthly payment between 350 and $430. let's applaud them. it's bipartisan. congress doesn't do a whole lot together. this is both republicans and democrats. why doesn't the senate do it? >> well, i think the senate got rid of it. they had a rule like this. they got rid of it in 2008 or 2007. so they did do it. now, keep in mind, the thousand dollar limit was imposed either this year or last year. before, you could go wilder than that. >> right. so this is only recently did they cap it? >> again you can go higher if your car also serves as a mobile office. >> the solyndra part you say they are forced to drive a hybrid? >> yeah. and the chevy volt part, too.
3:48 am
you have -- to get the thousand dollars, you have to get -- there is a list of e.p.a. approved vehicles from which it choose. and, of course, the lexus is on there and all these luxury hybrids are on there. yeah you can get it my favorite by the way towns represents brooklyn, new york how much do you need a car in brooklyn, new york. he is spending $11,500 a year of our money on his lease and his median income of the people he represents is just over 30 grand. >> perhaps the tad out of touch. seton motley president of less government. thanks for being with us, sir. >> appreciate it thank you. >> folks, let us know how you feel about it at ff weekend. the self-proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks is a step closer to justifiable this morning. khalid sheikh mohammed set to be arraigned at guantanamo bay today. we will go live to gitmo. catherine herridge top of the hour. then his death is a shock to fans. nfl legend junior seau

3:52 am
>> when nfl legend junior seau took his own life this week it shocked adoring fans. here was a hall of famer who seemed to have it all. one football player says he understands his pain and it's more common than we think. high profile punter for the baltimore ravens and houston oilers, he he hid his own mental illness for years. and he believes many professional football players are doing the same. he is the president of every mn-dot organize. coalition to increase mental health research. also with us is dr. tina sety.
3:53 am
neurologist and treating physician with the new york giants. thank you both for being here. >> thanks, ali. >> great to have you here. i want to start with you. what did you think when you heard of junior seau's death? >> i was shocked. i really thought about his family and i immediately thought about my family. i could totally relate to the emotional pain that he must have been going through. depression carries a level of fear and hopelessness that can spin us out and by the grace of god i'm still here. i mean, to be totally candid, i actually had a manic episode and subsequent depression and i'm down here in florida being treated here at behavioral health of the palm beaches. and it's been a tough time. and seeing what happened to junior and seeing what happened to his whole family, it's been a tragedy. >> and, greg, you know, we really appreciate you sharing
3:54 am
this personal part of your life. we know it's not easy to talk about it publicly. can you help us explain what happens to professional football players? i'm not talking about the physical impact of the job of getting hit in the head. obviously that's taking a toll and we will talk to the doctor about it in a second. but the emotional impact of the lifestyle? you guys have it all, right? fame and fortune? what goes wrong? >> well, making the transition from a gladiator to citizen q is very difficult process. the injuries and the brain trauma aside, when you are in the spotlight, and all of a sudden the curtain comes down for the final time, it's very difficult to make that transition back into society. i mean, we don't only have an identity crisis, but we need to reinvent ourselves and fit back in. and if you look at the statistics of divorce and bankruptcy to all the nfl retired players, i mean, there is really no -- there is no wonder that there is a lot of depression out there.
3:55 am
i really feel there needs to be a better transition from pros to citizenship. >> we know that you are working on that. dr. sety, i want to bring you in now because let's talk about the physical impact. one of junior seau's teammates just yesterday in "u.s.a. today" reported he estimated junior seau must have had about 1500 concussions during his career. is there a link between concussions and depression and mental illness. >> concussion disrupts chemical reaction in the brain and repeated may lead to depression. having said that without a clearly documented concussion history, any assumption that the head trauma that he may or may not have had have led to his depression is purely speculative. >> we know his family is actually donating his brain to science so that this can be studied. so, in other words, we're just on the cusp of figuring out the limping. >> exactly. there is a lot of research being done currently to investigate that further.
3:56 am
the pathology is essential to diagnose the condition of chronic traumatic encephalopathy. precise incidence of enaccept plop patty after head injury is unknown and may be higher than we think. >> greg obviously depression and mental illness effects people not just professional football players. you are trying to help people and build awareness for that. what do you say to people today who are struggling? >> i think the big word is communication. we have to get educated and make sure that we build a support group. there is a lot of great organizations out there. and if people go to screening for mental health.org. nomi.org or dbsa it's a situation we have to be able to ask for help. many, especially men, are too proud to ask for help when this comes to mental illness or depression. we have to communicate. >> i can imagine that's very true of professional football
3:57 am
players. thanks so much for coming in to talk about this important topic. greg, i will put a link to your web site on our blog here. we really appreciate it. thanks so much. >> thanks, ali. >> thank you. >> coming up, veterans sending a message to president obama with their new ad. waited until you see this. fe ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4glte network and motorola, whatever you want to do... droidoes. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much, i appreciate it, i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money ?

4:02 am
you're with them at the airport. you hug them good by, and t really is is good is is goodbyey vanish. they vanished into thin air. >> the five 9/11 suspects including the self-described architect khalid sheikh mohammed are faces charges hijacking and murder all in violation of war. charges for men inch thick 66 pages to list the names of all of the victims. this is the second time the men have been in this guantanamo military court. since president obama adopghted the military commissions the process is fair and lawful and they will try to bance transparent as possible. >> there really are forces and methods about future attacks and future dangers. again, i understand the skepticism. it is not a justification to
4:03 am
not disclose information because it is embarrassing or because it violates the law. >> the question this morning is whether the 9/11 suspects will try to enter guilty pleas. they tried to do that in december of 2008. under the new rules they can plead guilty but it will be up to a jury to decide whether they will get the death penalty. guys back to you. whamplet a position you will have catherine inside that courtroom. we look forward to hearing more from you. that's incredible what catherine just said 66 pages just to list the names of the victims. >> over an inch thick. unbelievable. >>th. >> catherine, thank you. one of three television reporters to see that history. >> that's remarkable. we're lucky to have her. >> more happening because of the u.s. drone strike killed at least 10 insurgents in region of pakistan. haven for militants. north waziristan near the afghan border. claims the drone strikes are counter productive. have danged al qaeda and other

4:06 am
message. >> was there anything in the hotel room that you found that was related to president obama or president obama's schedule or anything in the room that you saw that would have linked that man to the president's visit? she didn't say anything weird or anything that could relate this man to president obama or any kind of information on president the. >> she also went on to say that the federal agencies never contacted her. the secret service hasn't reached out to interview her. there has been no other official investigation into her. they haven't called. >> she went on to say, you know, if she chose to, if she wanted to, she could have rifled through any of this agent's stuff because he was sound asleep all night long. now, we don't know what kind of sensitive documents were there in the room. but we do know whatever there was, no attention was being paid to their safety and security. >> if her story is to be believed, that she said that had she been a terrorist, she could have gotten her hands on sensitive or classified
4:07 am
documentation because he was in a stupor basically is the way describes it sleeping off a bender that he was on after consuming tons of vodka she said. >> she said that he shoe walked out in the hallway when she wasn't getting her money from him and supposed to get the $800 and she was only given 3 a went down the hallway and saw a police officer down the hallway. this is when this whole thing unfolded the police officer walked back to the room with her. they knocked on the door. they could see the secret service agent's feet under the door he wouldn't answer the door because he sees the feet under the peephole. knowing if secret service agent. >> if she had known he was a member of the secret service, she actually would have never culled the local police because all the scandal has really brought a lot of trouble into her life. something she never wanted to' happen. she never. to the come out in public. everything that has happened has not been any good for her. if she had learned that he was a member of the secret service, she would never have
4:08 am
called the police and made all this happen. meanwhile a story you have been hearing an awful lot on this network a week or so or 10 days the spirit airline where they refused to refund a vietnam vet who bass dying and told he wasn't healthy enough to make his flight. they told him they would not refund his ticket. that is company policy regardless of your health stowers. it appears now somewhat of a happy ending for this vet the vo is changing his tune. his name is ben. here is his statement now. sometimes we make mistakes, in my statements regarding mr. meekens request for refund. i failed to explain why it makes spirit airlines the a fordable choice for travelers. did i not demonstrate the respect and passion that i should have given her medical
4:09 am
condition and his service to our country. >> this probably turned this entire turn about from the ceo of spirit airlines. take a listen to mr. meekens. >> you want people to boycott. >> yes. because i believe that maybe at the next board meeting. when this quarter's financial bottom line is read. maybe the board of directors will say to the guy that's curepghtly the ceo, you're a little young, maybe you better change your thoughts. that's the only open i have for people in the future who are like me who have run into a problem unexpectedly, i didn't expect to be terminal. i wouldn't have purchased a ticket to begin with. they should just case by case review it. >> the other issue is that the ceo doubled down on their refusal to refund. you know, forgetting that which is that they say their policy is that you should have taken out insurance. you should have taken out insurance because what does
4:10 am
that say to all the other passengers who take out insurance on a regular basis? we're going to make an exception for you? thean that means we have to make exception for everyone. >> paying out of his pocket. refunding the ticket. donating $5,000 to wounded warriors. we ask you is it too little too late. email us at friends at foxandfriends.com. >> jerry meekins is a super sweet guy that's all he wanted is for them to make a donation. he has gotten that. maria molina joins us with weather. >> big event, kentucky derby later this afternoon. raining out there right now. very humid, very muggy. we are expecting conditions to improve throughout the afternoon hours. we actually will start to see the thunderstorms moving out of the area and also start to dry out why 5:00 p.m. i do think we will stay generally pretty quiet. showers further on towards the north not looking at so many problems for during the race time. again, drying out.
4:11 am
still warm out there with temperatures into the middle 80's. otherwise, right now we have those heavy showers and also thunderstorms just south of louisville where we are seeing actually the potential for severe storms because we do have a severe thunderstorm watch out there across southwestern portions of kentucky. this does not include the city of louisville. this is the area where we could see some of that large hail and damaging winged gusts from some of those storms. as we head off towards montana, idaho and wheeling dealing with snow along system of the higher elevations a couple of inches will be possible. >> coming up on the show, president barack obama officially kicking off his re-election bid in ohio today. hasn't he already been hitting the trail for a few months now? we will explore that coming up next. >> plus,have you ever kept a secret stash of money from your spouse? a new study says keeping it hidson now more difficult than ever and you can thank technology for that, morris. i'll explain ahead. >> honey, don't look in that

>> president obama is officially kicking off election campaign today. hasn't he been campaigning all year. even some on the left are criticizing the president for being in full on campaign mode. joining us is special counsel to lanny davis. >> thank you. >> there is a new book out by a political scientist at the naval comedian in which this person has crunched the numbers president obama has already set a record for campaign fundraising.
4:16 am
he claims that the number is 191 already. okay? we're still six months away from the election. and he says that that number is more than george w. bush and bill clinton combined. is he now the campaigner in chief? are those criticisms fair, lanny? let me start with you? >> first of all, good morning, ed, and the two of us having been in politicking for a few years. let me say how shocked i am that an incumbent president is campaigning for office as president and the opposition party is complaining. this is a shocking development in american politics. >> lanny, it's more than other people. >> of course more. >> hear more than predecessors combined that doesn't make a dent. >> funny numbers. let's see the numbers. secondly, wouldn't you expect the republicans to said it's more and democrats say it's less. i remember when they criticized saying it's more. shocking, partisan politics, it's nothing but that.
4:17 am
i don't think anybody can going to take this seriously. >> dana milbank wrote in a column in the "the washington post" just this welcome. he says shouldn't presidential leadership about setting an example? instead erasing blurred lines between twaining and governing. he went on to call it slizy. >> i don't know whether it's sleazy or not. they have put their top political people in very high levels in the white house. lanny, you and i have been around the game a long time. always been the political person never been the entire team. super imposed ever since the midterm elections when they took a bath in the congress. they set up their headquarters in chicago. they have been raising money at a record pace. they basically have divided their legacy as most presidents do is getting reelected and everything else by the -- away from the boards. i think this has been a nonstop campaign. he does campaigning better than he does governing. so, you know, maybe that's what he likes and maybe that's why weeing s. doing it? >> i want to show you some
4:18 am
political ads and one that is controversial. veterans have just released an ad. some of them include navy seals in which they object to president obama's handling of the usama bin laden raid anniversary. let's watch this new ad and get to you comment. >> i can report i directed leon pa net attachment i was briefed. i met repet 'ed willly. i called. i as commander and chief. >> we don't need to spike the football. >> i said that i would go after bin laden if we had a clear shot at him and did i. >> suppose the navy seals had gone in there suppose they had been captured and killed. the downside would have been horrible. >> lanny, let me start with you. obviously they are pointing out that perhaps president obama has taken too much credit for this. what do you make of this?
4:19 am
>> well, first of all, i wasn't comfortable with the political advertisement about the killing of usama bin laden. and i criticized it and i still think it was poor judgment. i think the facts speak for themselves. those excerpts are completely taken out of context. president obama gave full credit to these heroic people who killed usama bin laden. but, also, honest republicans give president obama credit for making the very tough call to send them in as opposed to other options. but he has done too much in my opinion and it it's a political mistake to exploit this. he should have allowed the facts to speak for themselves and certainly a political ad was wrong timing in my view. >> the political ad you are talking about is the president's observe political ad that we are seeing now on the other side of our screen. what do you make of the criticism of the president? >> the criticism is very legitimate. the president made the right decision and it's a courageous decision but more important. the navy seals our special forces are extraordinary group of young men and women. went out and did the job.
4:20 am
the key thing here is from the night that it happened a year ago, the white house staff ran out and took credited for a whole bunch of things they shouldn't have and addition closed a whole bunch of stuff they shouldn't have. at the end of the day america will not tolerate and navy seals and veterans don't want to be used as political props. they want to do the job and do it well and fight for a very long fevered time. the real battle is going to be over the defense budget. i would hope that president obama and mr. romney will discuss the drastic cuts that they are talking about making here that will basically put our nation in real jeopardy. more important, these men and women who have served us so ably over the last decade. put a lot of their lives in jeopardy. >> that seems sure tore of the upcoming battle. >> parents are still picking up the tabernacle for their college-aged kids. this is according to a new study, but are we setting up kids to fail?

4:26 am
how were your emotions? >> it took a while to sink. in as i was walking through the clubhouse i was like this is kind of crazy. it was all hitting me it was a really cool experience. >> he was obviously taking aback by the fact that you are an amputee. you are high school kid that had to endure cancer. such an upbeat outlook for you. that's what's amazing. do you stand up comedy. do you motivational speaking. what is your message for people going through cancer, going through tough times? >> i guess my message is that, you know, there are better days ahead. and that, you know, this is something that you can get through and to keep your head up while you are going through it and to stay positive and believe in muirself. >> so what was the best part of this situation playing catch with jeremy guthrie, meeting tim tebow, going to his tournament, swinging the driver of the masters champion? what was the best part of all of it? >> it's hard to decide really. it's been a pretty incredible
4:27 am
few weeks. so, i don't know if i can rank one thing higher on the list than anything else. but it's all been pretty spectacular. >> probably when doctors told you you were cancer free, folks, you can donate to cancer research on woody's web site. woody rose land.com. you also have started a bit of a cancer rap i'm told and you are going to do a bit of it for us this morning? >> yeah. i did start messing around with it it and then i started telling more people and they wanted to help. so now i'm working with jordin sparks is the producer named gabriel. is he helping me out on this. foundation supporting me on this. we should be finished working on it here pretty soon. i would love to give you a preview. >> you are not quite ready? you can do it? >> oh, can i give you a preview. >> let's wrap it up with your rap. let's hear a bit. >> please don't doubt it dude if i told you cancer is sucking it's all about

>> welcome back, america's job crisis sure to be a key issue on the campaign trial. while the unemployment rate dropped to 8.1%. only 115,000 new jobs were created. well below the keeping up with the top legs growth. here is what the president had to say about these findings. >> we're going to recover all the jobs that were lost during the recession if we're going to build a secure economy. just saying no to ideas that will create new jobs is not an option. there is too much at stake for us not to all be rowing in the same direction. >> joining with us republic
5:18 am
reaction former presidential candidate and mitt romney supporter governor tim pawlenty joins us this morning with his reaction. nice to see you this morning. >> good morning, clayton, good to be with you. >> thanks for joining us. the president's commentary yesterday in virginia trying to put a positive spin on this jobs number it was by all reports not a positive jobs report. 8.2% down to 8.1% and 115,000 private sector jobs. your response to the president's message yesterday? his message should be that he failed. he said when he came into office that he was going to restore those jobs. he said it again on your clip. 8.1% unemployment is an awful number. that slight down tick from 8.2 to 8.1, clay to be is because a bunch of people left the workforce. 115,000 jobs added but 340,000 people, adults, left the workforce. the percent of adults who are not working or who are, have
5:19 am
given up looking for work is an a an all time high. the percent of people in the work force or looking for work is at a 30 year low. that number that is he touting only went down a little because so many people gave up. he shouldn't be proud of that he should be ashamed of that. >> you are a mitt romney supporter and some think that mitt romney overreached yesterday about some of his comments jobs number the other side hurting themselves. mitt romney said yesterday we should get that number down to 4% and he would be creating 500,000 jobs a month but even when he was governor of massachusetts only down to 4.7%. some saying it's really an impossible task to do that. the governor overreach in his commentary yesterday? >> no, i don't think so. i read his comments. he said that we shouldn't be celebrating anything over 4%. obviously anything over 4% there is a lot of work to do. in fact, 4% still means a lot of people are out of work. he says we shouldn't be doing
5:20 am
victory laps or patting people on the back or bragging about the progress that's been made when you have anything over 4%. too many people are still out of work he came from blue collar background. whether people have a job. on that measure barack obama has failed on a lot of other stuff as well. >> you have gone on the record and said repeatedly you are not considering the number two spot. the vice presidency, although we have heard from governor chris christie saying he could be persuaded if governor romney came to him. of course marco rubio. your name keeps making that list. could governor romney persuade you to take that second spot? >> i'm trying to encourage people to take me off the list. clayton. i was down that road before with john mccain and it was an honor to be considered. i think can i help mitt in other ways. he is going to have a lot of great people to consider. rob portman.
5:21 am
chris christie. nikki haley. many many others. that's a partial example. i can help mitt in a lot of other ways. >> governor tim pawlenty. great to he so you this morning. thanks for joining us. >> you are welcome. >> more "fox & friends" in two minutes. i take insulin,

>> imagine going to heaven and back. that is the incredible story of our next guest. in 1999, dr. mary neil drowned while cuyahoga counting counting-kayaky. she was under water for 14 minute. she saw her entire life flash before her eyes and even witnessed her soul leaving her body. >> mary did not die obviously. she was miraculously rescued and is now telling her story in the book to heaven and back.
5:25 am
the true story of a doctor's extraordinary walk with god. >> joining us now is dr. mary neil. dr. neil, great to have you. >> thank you. >> your book is incredible. it's inspiring because of all the messages that you say you came back with. let's go back to the incident you were kayakingy in and trapped with your head under the water. what do you remember from that time? >> i remember at first trying to do all the things to get myself out of the boat. and when i realized that i wasn't going to be able to do that and i was going to drown, i asked only that god's will be done. and at that point everything changed. i was held and comforted and reassured that everything would be fine. >> you had a feeling of being placid and serene.
5:26 am
>> i was so comfortable and calm and felt absolute bliss and joy. it was wonderful. >> obviously you were brought back to life after receiving cpr. i am the consummate skeptic on the curvey couch. therefore, i have to ask. it's not that you are sharing the story say critics it's that you are selling the story now. would you believe the story if someone else told it? >> no. >> okay. >> i'm the consummate skeptic. through the this process, i continued analyzing it, analyzing it. i'm a spine surgeon. i'm a scientist. i wouldn't normally believe someone else's story. and i, too, would say gee, what are you getting out of this? but the reality is i have a good day job. i'm not -- >> -- indeed. >> the profits go to nonprofit. but the real key i think is when you read the full story that's written into heaven and back, you realize that it's
5:27 am
not just my story. you can look at that and turn your vision to your own life and really get some guidelines in terms of what to look for in your own life. and i think the key is that by reading my stories and my sharing my experiences, you are able to find god's working in your own life. then the skepticism disappears. >> i mean, during part of your miraculous story, is that you were visited by an angel during this. >> yes. >> and you were -- you brought back some messages. >> i did. and part of the skepticism is erased because the fact is i was told about some of the reasons why i had to come back. i was told about some of the things that would happen in the future. and those things did happen. including the death of my son. >> those things you were told protect your husband's health, be the spiritual rock upon which your family and your community could stand and come
5:28 am
back and tell your story and you have done that the book is to heaven and back. it sure is a fascinating, fascinating journey to take us on. >> dr. neal, it's great to meet you. we really enjoyed reading your book. come badge and visit any time. >> thank you very much. >> coming up on the show. he has been the face of the he show for 28 years. but is alex trebek putting his jeopardy days behind him? >> what? >> then some navy seals are not happy with president obama. they say he is politicized the raid that killed usama bin laden. governor huckabee is here to weigh in on that next. >> and the governor will be quizzing us on cinco de mayo trivia and the loser getting dunked in a giant batch of margaritas. >> that's why dave has been all. >> just give me the straw. len, .

5:34 am
children. some intense video out of texas you are about to see the moment a metro bus crashed into unsuspecting drivers. take a look at this. that is dash cam video taken from inside the bus. the bus caught the 10 car byup. the drash sent nine people to the hospital. police say it appears that the bus driver pushed the gas pedal instead of hitting the brakes. that driver is now out of a job. i will take devastating news for 500. we're learning that alex tray beck is considering retiring from jeopardy after 28 years. the stunning announcement coming during a 10:00 a.m. eastern. >> what is his future. >> could do not know. >> meanwhile he has held numerous events that look and
5:35 am
sound like campaign rallies. president obama says he is first today going to officially kick off his re-election bid today. >> peter doocy live in washington with more on this story. good morning, peter. >> good morning, that's right. the president's first official campaign event of the season is called the ready to go rally at ohio state university out in columbus. barack obama.com has posted a picture of the venue where you can see a banner with the new very simple slogan forward and even though the president filed the paperwork to run for re-election 13 months ago and has attended 124 fundraisers to raise money for his cause. the campaign says today's events at ohio state and at virginia commonwealth university are the official kickoff of the campaign and we heard a little bit of his pitch to young people yesterday at a northern virginia high school. >> when i met your classmates. when i look out at your faces it gives me confidence about
5:36 am
our future. i believe new, i believe you are going to do a great thing. i believe your generation will remind the world just why america is the greatest immigration on earth. >> mid romney's first campaign event was back on june 3rd of last year. he has been spending time in another critical swing state this week pennsylvania. he thinks things coast to coast aren't going very well and both sides should cool it with the attacks. >> this is a time of concern for america. we need to be encouraging the american people to come together. not dividing one another. some of the rhetoric is too hot for both sides of the aisle. got to lay off that talk about the things that bring us together. >> and the obama campaign clearly thinks ohio and virginia are critical swing states since he they are starting there today. and according to the real clear politics average of polls. president obama leads mitt romney by 4.2 points in ohio and 3.2 points in virginia. but a lot can change and a lot
5:37 am
will happen between now and the november election. >> thanks peter. >> thank you, peter. let's bring in governor mike huckabee now who is here this morning. in a few minutes is he going to quiz us on the cinco de mayo quiz first one of us will go to the dunk tank. first let's talk about politics this morning. interesting stuff coming out of the obama campaign and imaginary web woman. >> this is something her name is julia. sometimes company will do this to say perfect customer. julia, 35, two kids at home. this is what this seems like and they are sort of, i don't know, targeting her in some way? take us through this. >> well, first of all, quite appropriate we now find out that barack obama in his book dreams from my father that girl he described had such an influence she was a composite? is something the president has a history of. composite friends and composite girlfriends and
5:38 am
campaign target. julia is this woman. whole life. she is a very lonely person. and if it weren't for barack obama and good old uncle sugar this would be the loneliest lady that ever lived in america. some republicans have come and taking handoutsouts from start o finish. look at it more individually. it starts with her being able to access head start program which helped kindergartners prepare for school. bad program or good program. >> worked for kids. overall evaluation by objective sources say head start has not been as effective as the amount of mope we have put into it. there are other ways to prepare. should we do preschool programs i think the answer is yes. is head start the best? may not be. almost like a kid without a government program they wouldn't make it without the
5:39 am
government intervening every step of your life you would be one helpless soulless person out on the streets. wait a minute, i thought it was all about work and wasn't just what the government did for us. it's what we were able to do so we didn't have to access all those government programs. >> critics will say well, it's a made up war on women it's fitting this is imaginary video. what you just said, doesn't it perfectly frame the argument if you are a republic. do women, do you want handouts from start to finish or do you want personal responsibility? do you want an environment where you can be anything you want to be today just look at the supreme court? >> this does set the whole election. is government's primary job to take your job from childhood walk you through life and making sure at every step of the way they help cross the corner with you or train you up so you are independent free person with absolute liberty and you have no limits to what you do no matter where you start. i kind of like the second version better.
5:40 am
that's my own life story. you know, i didn't start out with anything. but i'm grateful that i live in a country where if you work hard, get an education, treat people right, there are no limits. and it's not that you have to sit around waiting for uncle sugar to pick up and take you to the dance. >> i wish we had free will right now. >> we have a giant sugar filled margarita dunk tank. we will be diving into the mr. sugar. >> you will be quizzing us. whoever loses gets in the dunk tank. are you ready? >> yeah, i'm ready. >> you are not ready. five questions. this is rich. okay. first question: what year was the first cinco de mayo's observance? options are a 1662, b, 1762, c, 1862, d, 1962. >> show it to the camera? >> we only have three. >> that's a problem. >> four answers we have three
5:41 am
cards. >> i guess you won't choose the fourth one. >> okay. 1, 2, 3. >> i'm taking the fourth one. that i don't have. >> so you are saying d. >> i'm saying c. >> what's the answer? >> later. >> i was not authorized to give you the answer. >> the reveal is going to happen later. >> they are going to tell me later. let's move on. alex trebek i'm not. i'm not taking alex's job. number two holiday cinco de mayo is meant to commemorate the fight for independence. a national hero, c, a historic battle? we have a by clayton, c for alley and for dave. somebody is he keeping the score here. >> music by any chance? >> all of them want this because they are all going to be seeing tanks for the memory. >> get some quack molly out guacamole. >> i would rather be dunked in
5:42 am
a bowl of guacamole. >> what country is the number one tequila market in the world? a spain, b, the united states and c mexico? take your time but give it to me now. >> 1, 2, 3. >> everybody says b except clayton who says c mexico. the other two said the united states. >> question number four, which of these is among the top four cities for margarita drinking in the u.s. something i'm sure dave would know personally. a phoenix, b, st. louis. c, los angeles. >> clayton says, all of them say a, phoenix. >> okay. is that it? >> that looks very -- oh no, no. one more question. the fifth and final question. this is the one that will determine who goes into the tank filled with margaritas, on average, how many margaritas do americans consume daily per hour? i don't think there this is
5:43 am
one america. a 150000. >> daily per hour. >> per hour. 185,000, and c, 200,000? >> something wrong with the wording there. >> this is not just gsa workers at a government conference. >> 1, 2, 3. >> here we go. we have b, for clayton and dave, which would be 185,000. ali is the lighter drinker at 150,000. >> our producers have been tabulating these in the booth. we will find out the answers coming up in a little bit. governor, did you ever think you would go from politics to this? >> i never thought i would rise this high. never did. but i never thought you guys would sink so low as you will in a little bit in that tank. >> nicely played, governor. >> stay tuned to find out which one of us goes in the drunk tank. >> we will reveal the answer at the end of the show. stay tuned. governor huckabee is also going to stick around for. this because navy seals are slamming president obama for they say politicizing the raid

5:46 am
5:47 am
>> was president obama taking a victory lap and taking credit for the raid that killed usama bin laden one year ago? well, some navy seals say that they are upset that the president was, they believe, using usama bin laden's death as ammunition for his battle for re-election. >> take a look at the president's ad one chance and the ad made in response by the group veterans for a strong america. listen. >> the president is the decider in chief. nobody can make that decision for you. look, he knew what would happen. suppose the navy seals had gone in there and had hadn't been bin laden? suppose they had been captured or killed? the downside would have been horrible for him. >> can i report i collected leon panetta. i was briefed. i met repeatedly.
5:48 am
i determined at my direction. i called president. i i as commander and chief. >> we don't need to spike the football. i said i would go after bin laden if we had a shot at him and i did. >> governor, many politicians and presidents have celebrated foreign policy achievements. where did the president, in your opinion go, wrong? recommendation you know, it's classic thing if a person has to tell everyone he is in charge he is not in charge. the person really in charge never has to say it because everybody underunderstands it and it's absolutely accepted. this is a president who can't wait to rush in and say i'm in charge. i'm in charge. and it really is an indication that he may not be. here is what i think he could have done far more effectively. if rather than call attention i did this. did i decided that. i made the call. let me pay tribute to the real heros there. the navy seals that went. in yes i made the call. i gave them permission but it was their valor it takes nothing away from him.
5:49 am
in fact, i think it adds to his stature and it session i'm a leader but i understand who had to actually go in and do the work. >> doesn't this actually become a campaign issue. >> it already has. >> meaning six months from now do people remember this? does it have any lasting impact. >> since months from it may not' a hundred new issues will happen between now and then. this was not the kind of start that he wanted to get going with. i think what he doesn't understand because he doesn't understand the military very well. how this plays out within the ranks every day soldiers who could go out there and they see him jumping in front of the parade with his baton. >> you got a panel of navy seals on the huckabee show tonight at 8:00 p.m. on the fox news channel. the governor talking to those navy seals. 8:00 p.m. tonight. >> good to he so you and good luck in the drunk tank. >> good luck ali. >> it i pass to be a criminal. convicted felons collecting workers' comp from behind bars. how did this happen? we'll tell you. >> plus, if you are thinking

6:06 am
leading obama's way and virgia this past week has obama up 7 in virginia; what do you make of the swing state numbers. they are all are wrong. all poll registered voters and what you need to poll is likely voters. 40 percent of the people they polled don't vote and like low voters polls are more pro romney than the other polls. you have to read them appropriate're properly. when it shows that romney and obama are tied at 43, that is not a close race. obama will not get any of the undecided votesment incumbents never do. it has always gone to the challenger so when you see a poll like in pennsylvania with obama 51 and romney at whatever. that is a 51-49 race which is
6:07 am
close. when you see a race where romney and obama are tied at 44 each, that is not close. and that is going to be a 56-44 wipe out and maybe 55-45. and these polls show a strong lead for mitt romney. >> and what about the poll, this baby out with the bath water and coming to the economy. romney would do a better yob than obama. are we misreading the poll? >> it should be done of likely voters and not registered vores. and the fact is, one of the things that is leading me to believe that it is it a decisive romney victory is the continuing confidence that people have in him as opposed to obama to deal with the economy it is the economy, stupid, what else is the issue? it is in particular this week, when the consensus of the economist shifted from
6:08 am
believing that the economy would accelerate to believing it would decel brate as election day approaches, they will turn on obama in great numbers. i am for romney and therefore i am confident about the election. >> dick, you have studied past presidential races and politics for years given that the unemployment rate is 8.1 and everyone said that is not truly reflective of the job situation, when you look back at previous presidents and the jobs, what are you seeing? >> the only two that had an unemployment rate this high hoover was much higher and carter and none of them was reelected. obama solved two enormous problems. he solved the problem of illegal immigration and tried up the jobs and no one is
6:09 am
coming and he solved the problem of unemployment and persuading 22 million americans from working and it is it the labor force with the same size as it was when he took office unemployment would be 10 points and sevenpercent. this month they only are are upon i jobs and that is 170 less than he needs to lower real unemployment. and 400,000 people decided to drop out of the labor force and go home, and therefore, thun -- the unemployment rate drops. most are women. and 92 percent of the job losses are among women what is happening, they are losing their jobs and figuring they can't get another job and why am i spending this money on day care and they stay home? >> that number has been going down since 2000 because baby boomers have begun to retire.
6:10 am
isn't that a natural occurence. >> well, when barack obama took office there were 70 million americans not in the labor force. and 135 million who were working age adultings now 139 who are working in the labor force and 100 million who are not in the labor force. it has gone from 70 mill yoil to 100 million. 80 percent is unemployed because ther looking for work. 22 million are people who are not counted in the unemployment race because they dropped out of the labor force. >> dick, if you will stick around for a while, we have more questions for you. attorney general eric holder is tone walling over the famous gun running scandal is that about to change, and how much longer can the request

>> welcome back. is it thipped of the road for attorney general eric holder. a draft by contempt issued by congress for what congress said is the refusal to cooperate in the fast and furious investigation. how will this affect president obama's reelection campaign. we are back with former advertiser to president clinton and what is the book?
6:15 am
>> the title is screwed. >> i saw that. >> i was hoping you put that down. by the way least anyone think it is porn it is a map of the united states with a flag and a screw on it. meanwhile eric holder has survived so much. can this bring him down? i think it certainly is not healthy for him. but you got to realize that he is the first african-american attorney general. and i think he's an outpoken and forceful advocate for the minorities community. voters id and a range of those issues the problem is, if obama forces him out or makes him resign in the face of all
6:16 am
of this stuff, it is going to send a bad message to the black community but if holder is being persecuted in the eyes of many of the african-american community by the republicans in congress he is a symbol of and helped for obama and he would have helped with the turn out it is in obama's interest to leave him in where he is fighting the republicans and in contempt of congress. >> is it a race-based issue. issa contempt order. outrageous tactics and the justices refousal to cooperate with the investigation and efforts to smear and retailiate against whistle blowers and tainted the institutional integrity of the justice department. that was issa's contempt order. you think people see it as race? >> i don't think it is it

race. but they will spin it as race. and i think it is a stupid operation in the first place. the ayou upon -- assumption you put guns in the hans of drug dealers and one guy whom they arrested for it and then let him go because they wanted to track the weapons, that's insane and led to deaths of several dea agents and many, many other people. it was a terribly conceived and executed and it is being covered up now. and i think the sense of outrage about it will not prevent some people from saying that this is it a race-based thing. >> dick morris, you are the author of "screwed". >> you nailed it >> thank you. >> sorry. >> okay, we'll talk about it on fox and friends.
