2:02 pm
something you're familiar with. what do you think? >> eric: the misleading innuendo was the intro, saying opening to rapturous crowds, which we'll talk about later. and the facts. first thing out of that, obama campaign ad was we created 4 4.2 million jobs. no. half a million more americans are unemployed now than when obama took office. it's higher. you can't say you created 4 4.2 million american jobs when million americans are not working. >> bob: a number of workers retire. >> eric: that is a boldface lie. of course people retire but they come in the workforce, too. fewer americans working now than when he took over. any way you slice it doesn't mean you created 4.2 million jobs >> bob: there are 4 4.2 million more people working. >> eric: how about the 100% increase in gas prices? or the 100% increase in food

2:04 pm
they don't talk about it. they don't talk about solving big problems. they just want to win to win. >> bob: romney has to say what he will do about it. >> dana: fine. but we're talking about president obama. romney has put out plans. you might disagree but it's not he hasn't done anything. rapturous crowds, it's interesting that the "new york times" reporter described it as watching an aging rock star at some event. if you're going in your second term re-election, your first campaign event, hard to swallow, the white house reporters, give me a break. official event. aging rock star, that is not what you were going for. >> bob: bruce springsteen is aging rock star. >> kimberly: but he doesn't have bad job numbers. >> eric: what do you say? >> greg: charles barkley, a guy who never won an n.b.a. championship. who is the real loser here? most of his dribbling is done now behind a wheel of a car. he has been pulled over for drunk driving. so shut up, bald guy. >> kimberly: my gosh.
2:05 pm
>> eric: a very big bald guy. >> greg: he'll never find me. i can hide under anything. when i see him coming, i will run. here is the thing, obama has to look at this in a different way. look at america. he is the boyfriend that wants, that wants to get back in with his ex. for the past four years he has been bad. he needs to prove to them that the next four years will be better. i have a list of excuses or platitudes i've used. if you want we can take it slow, i want you to be happy. that works. i've done a lot of thinking and you're right about everything. >> kimberly: that is very helpful. >> greg: another. i've been such a fool. how could i have treated you so badly? >> kimberly: true. >> bob: how many are those? >> greg: two more. i swear i changed. this is the new obama. i even quit smoking. lastly, i took you for granted, america. remember when i said you weren't exceptional?

2:07 pm
>> kimberly: they're not. >> eric: they're not. give me one metric that is -- >> bob: manufacturing. >> eric: it's not better than four years ago. bob it was. >> eric: it's better than when he took over, but it's not better -- better than his first year. absolutely. things are starting to turn around. there is no recession in the history of the planet that lasts more than three years. >> bob: what was the date today four years ago? >> eric: 2008, may 7. >> bob: go back -- >> greg: that is the strangest question ever. >> bob: look at the numbers for may 7, 2008. >> eric: you can't say this, though, bob. the snapshot in january when he took over in office, give me something that is better. >> bob: manufacturing, kids with insurance and women with equal pay. >> eric: the redistribution are better. >> kimberly: if you want to run for president of france.

2:09 pm
>> bob: why is it because he's not high on electability? >> dana: the republican primary had a lot to do with it. in a lot of ways what i'd worry about if i was the obama team he has nowhere to go but up. people don't necessarily want a likable president. they want a competent president. >> greg: the reason obama is likable and romney is not likable, that is how the media viewed the candidates. they see romney is the dad they didn't get along with. this is a superficial company and elections are like high school. obama is marty mcfly. and nobody can get out of that idea. boston one other question. obama has a clear lead of ten points in battleground state and leadership, very important. seven points orve romney in
2:10 pm

2:11 pm
president obama himself said the worst thing you can do is raise taxes in the economic growth is slow. everything he is talking about would raise taxes. why not keep the bush tax cuts? >> bob: it doesn't bring enough revenue. but the question is should we think about being bold? that would make sense. >> kimberly: we can agree on that. >> bob: we can. coming up next, c.i.a. thwart an al-qaeda plot to bomb a u.s. airlineer. right back with details.
