>> good morning. i am heather childers>> and i am ainsley earhardt. thank you so much for watching "fox & friends first". a major reversal on the controversial issue of gay marriage. >> i have just concluded for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same sex couples should be able to get married. peter doocy is live with more on the political implications of his announcement. good morning, peter. >> president obama says his daughters sasha and malia whose
friends are parents that are same sex couples and have a hard time figuring out why those people should be treated differently. that's why he wanted to go public not the reelection. it is pretty important in this electoral map. it may hurt me. the president's stance on gay marriage comes one day after a state democrats know is critical since they are holding their area there.es have constitution mainedments banning same-sex marriage for a total of 309 available electoral votes. 7 of those 30 states are swing states, florida, ohio, virginia, colorado, pennsylvania, michigan and north carolina. if you add all those up 114 electoral votes are available. 44 percent of what a candidate
needs to be elected president of the united states. when the speaker of the house asked about this he said republicans just want to talk about the economy. >> i think he made his position very clear. i have always believed marriage is between a man and a woman. republicans here capitol hill are focused in on the economy. president obama presumed opponents in the fall. it's up to the voters to decide whether president obama changed his position here but he understands it's a very sensitive tender topic. >> the president's announcement is the big talker today. dick morris reacted to the political implications to this on o'reilly. >> he believes this marginalizes president obama. take a listen. >> the second sentence in that announcement he played is states have the right to do whatever they want. he is not going to appease the gay community which is one of
the four major funders of the democratic party along with jews, greens and trial lawyers. he already alienated jews. he is not going to appease them but he will marginalize himself to the rest of the country at least a large part of that. this guy is painting himself into a far left corner with these populist attacks with these positions he's taking, the lashing out at big oil and rich people. he's not looking presidential or acting presidential. he's getting clobbered in the polls. >> he says this decision to come out now is motivated money. >> every move he takes is a evolutionary product of campaign donor approved positions. that's what is really driving this. it's all about politics and it's
all about money. once again he's leading behind because of the so-called gaff that joe biden had to make and walk back. i wonder what barack obama thinks of joe biden after he walked back the position that obama has now adopted. for all of the democrats attacking mitt romney as an etch a sketch, what is barack obama? to me he's like a lava lamp. it is globs of shapeless spineless policies that heat up and move around when the campaign season heats up. and talking about well the country has grown and matured. wonder what the media reaction shows what carriers they are given the double standards between mitt romney's changing positions and barack obama's historic look on this issue.
>> oo she will be on today. be sure to tune into that. 5 at 5:00. while you were sleeping the u.s. having a test of the raytheon missile interceptor. destroying a target missile near kauai. as the u.s. hiunt for al qaeda terrorist believed to be behind the foiled plot to blow up the airline. we are getting disturbing news about how he tried to hide his bomb. he created bombs that can be hidden in texts so they can avoid to be they can be surgery implanted in terrorists and inside hard drives that explode when plugged into a lap top. vladimir putin snubbing obama. he was sworn in again as president this week.
he told president obama he won't be peteing with him later this month and won't be attending the g-8 summit. the prime minister will come into his place. he needs to set up his cabinet. one of the reasons president obama moved the summit from chicago to the retreat was to accommodate putin. they want to you remember him. adam mayes on the fbi most wanted list after murdering a mother and teenaged daughter before kidnapping her two younger girls. a 71,000 dollar reward being offered for any information lead to go his arrest and information to the two. police say his ex-wife and mother hid the mother and sister's bodies. ♪ flu

check ahead if you are traveling today. the rain continues to linger across long island and the coastal areas of massachusetts, up towards maine. but again things are going to start to improve over the next several hours. lose looking at the potential of showers and thunderstorms across portions into toward texas. that's the area where we could see potential for severe weather damaging tornadoes across south texas across the big bend. not a big area of severe weather but if you live in these regions want to pay attention to your local forecast. current temperatures 48 chicago, 64 memphis. 55 dallas. 54 in atlanta. if you are living across the eastern sea board look ahead if you are traveling today especially air traveling. thank you so much, janice. now to stories you can bank on this morning. we begin with news the big chinese banks are coming over to
the u.s. for more we go to lauren simonetti on fox business network. what does this mean for us? >> this is unprecedented. the feds u.s. legislator reauthorities are given approval of three chinese banks one of them the industrial commercial banks is the biggest in china to buy some u.s. banks. what it means is perhaps we can have someone dominated in our own accounts. it gives americans more access to market which have been tough to get into at this point. we have sent a huge team of exports to go over to china to look at their operations before they approve this. normally something like this would take two months not more than a year. >> providing finance to those chinese companies. gasoline prices. people are wondering because we are approaching summertime people take vacations. >> national average 3.75 down a nickel from a week ago. one of the reasons they are coming down is crude oil prices
from which gasoline is refined. $96 a barrel right now. we were at $106 last week a. huge drop. adding more fire to those declines is the fact that oil supply is the highest since 1990. >> memorial day weekend is around the corner. lots of beer drinkers this morning. we saw budweiser change their cans last august. now what's happening they are changing the bottles. >> what makes you think about summer more than a budweiser bottle that's in red white and blue. this is the new lack for the patriotic make-over of b budweiser's beer bottles the initiative they have with the honor foundation to supply scholarships to the children of military families. sthooivengs. nice to see you. >> it is now 10 minutes after the hour.

>> thank you for joining us. it is 29 almost 30 past the hour. a major shake-up for this year's presidential campaign. >> i have concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm i think same sex couples should be able to get married. >> doug luzader is live to us in washington on what it could mean come november. >> good morning, guys. perhaps the worst kept secret in washington is out. the only surprise is the timetable. there were no questions about the political ramifications here. let's take a look at the over all landscape. 30 states have laws that effectively ban gay marriage. among them are important swing states like ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, florida and most
rece recently north carolina. this will not help the president with social conservatives. it will help energize gay supporters who may be more willing to open their wallets for the president's campaign. it creates a stark contrast who again voiced his opposition to gay marriage. >> i do not favor marriage between people of the same gender and i do not favor civil marriages. it benefits hospital visitation rights and the like are appropriate but the others are not. >> he positioned himself so he is a contrast to mitt romney's position. romney has been in support of a federal amendment to ban gay marriage. what president obama said today is it's up to the state to make that call. >> and they have made it. >> they have made it in some cases and made it in a different way he has in terms of support
for gay marriage. i think that is a critical issue. >> the president did not go as far. it should be something for individual states to decide not the federal government. a change of heart happened earlier than they planned but joe biden forced the president's hand on this. thank you so much doug luzader. appreciate it. >> here is analysis from bret baier on special report. >> they could energize world voters and voters that have been hesitant to enthusiastically support mitt romney on this issue they have been very consistent. the court cases there they tried to block same-sex marriage from becoming law. on the other hand they should help him with independents. if we get too much into the weeds day after day discussing
things like marriage and the implications of this. if i am mitt romney i would rather talk about the economy. even though this issue won't hurt him in some of the key electoral states could help him with turnout is past a victory and the unifying victory that is going to put him over the top. if he gets over the top it is jobs and economy. >> it is time for your 5 at 5:30. top stories making news at this hour. a house panel giving the green light to a missile defense site on the east coast. $5 billion would be spent over three years to step up our defense. it is necessary if they are capable of reaching the east coast. the pentagon calls it unnecessary. democrats argue it's a waste of money. >> federal investigators are trying to determine who leaked the information about a plot to blow up a u.s. bound plane with
the underwear bomb. they gave it then to the cia. the device is being examined the fbi. it's at least the 7th criminal case opened by the obama administration more than any previous administration. >> listen to this, ainsley, it is a story every parent needs to hear. a 4-year-old girl locked inside a school bus for nearly 6 hours. it happened in man'sville, ohio. the bus had mechanical problems apparently. when the driver and assistant switched vehicles they failed to make sure all of the kids were with them. after calling school she is like we have her at access. i put her on the bus this morning it was 60 degrees. had it been today or the day before, she wouldn't have been lucky. the bus driver her assistant now on paid leave. adams wants both charged with cerment. >> i know that mother was panicking. we marked her as absent.

>> that is your 5 at 5:30. >> too early to cry. >> the aclu getting ready to challenge the governments no-fly zone in federal court. a look at the controversy is dan springer. >> heather the no fly list is 9 years old. the aclu filed suit two years ago. right now they have a hearing in portland. the biggest problem with the no fly list is the government will not tell people when they are put on it or most importantly why they are put on it. the list is growing to 20,000 names including 500 u.s. citizens. the only way to know they are on the list is to show at the airport and they are barred from the flight. he was trying to return from tonenesia. he was trying to return from libya for a christian group medical team. he was only allowed to fly home a month later. he is still on the no fly list
and says he has never been given a reason. >> in the modern day air travel is absolutely fundamentally important to how we travel on a daily basis. that right to travel is protected by the constitution's promise. >> he does worship at the islamic center of portland a focus of several terror investigations in recent years including the portland 6 which was convicted of plotting the attacks in afghanistan. mohammed another mosque member was charged with trying to detonate a car bomb at a christmas lighting ceremony. >> i don't think the mosque itself is any threat at all in portland or anybody else. it is activities of people who attend. they have drawn tanks to themselves fwhier activitie -- their activities. >> this is a redress but it is not easy within the homeland security department. the aclu challenge will be heard from the 9th circuit court of appeals. heather, ainsley, back to you.
