2:00 pm
demand it. >> do you give them the business? start bringing the business in. bring the business in. bring the business in. >>neil: at 8:00 p.m. >> this is the five! welcome, everybody. i hate to be the bearer of bad news, especially on a friday. but there is no hiding from today's free fall in the american economy. thanks to a dismal jobs report released today, the. employment rate jumped to 82%. under employment. and 776,000 more women are unemployment line today unpresident obama and the news got worse all day long as the stock market fell off a cliff,
2:01 pm
giving back all of 2012 gains and more today. to his credit, president obama recognizes the severity of the situation, he hit the podium to offer some ideas. ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. >> if you have $3,000 a year extra, that helps you pay down your credit card, that helps you go out and buy some things that your family needs. which is good for business. maybe somebody will be replacing some thing of a jig for their furnace. >> replace some thing of a jigs for their furnace? bob, that's how he's going to solve the problem for jobs in america? in june, in place parts for the furnace? >> let me just say how much i believed when you said i hate to be the bearer of bad news. i've never seen you so ecstatic on the opening of a show. are they bad reports? of course, they are.
2:02 pm
does it make it hard for obama, yes, it does. the only good sliver of news here is 600-some thousand odd people came back into the workforce looking for jobs. it's a bad report. the only good news about it is he has three more reports before election days. >> i'm not happy when jobs markets are down and i'm certainly not happy when the stock market crashes. the president, was he tone-deaf? what was that all about today. >> well, know don't that far in advance what the numbers are going to be. i would love to find out how do the economists get the predictions so wrong in pretty much everybody was off. the numbers come in today and the stock market reacts. i think it would have been an interesting and good move not politically, but as president if today he would have said to his team, look, i know we will do this event in minnesota, it's an official event, i have six other fundraisers tonight and i will
2:03 pm
let those go. i'm heading back to washington and i will meet with my cabinet. i will have the republican leadership to come down monday because we need to focus and set politics asides for a moment it feels like even if there are four more job reports between now and november, what is happening in between then? what is anybody doing about any of this. and in the meantime we wait and try to find out what's going to happen to europe. >> furnaces in summertime, i have to tell you, that's a brilliant strategy. so many people will be using their furnace this summer. and lots of thingamajigs. >> and there was a little glimmer of hope but all the other data was bad. manufacturing jobs cut, job cuts rose 53% in one month from april to may. that is the worse slide since we saw in september. if i'm the white house and i'm on the campaign, what are you going to run on? i mean that's the question i'm going to be asking. they must be sitting around the room saying what's the message?
2:04 pm
if he didn't fix it, today on the campaign stump he said we need more time. but he's the one that said if we don't fix it, i should be a one-term president. you have to give voters a monthstive reason to pull the lever for you and he rain done that. >> kimball slice? >> go ahead. >> 766,000 fewer women in the workforce today than when president obama took over. >> and 24% less. >> who has a war on women, mitt romney or president obama? >> i don't know. he definitely doesn't have anything to celebrate today and i'm wondering if they gave them the card of a good moving company because i think somebody is going to be out of a job, too. >> can he get reelected with -- >> how can he? >> with numbers like this? >> it would have to be on his good looks and personality or something or dance moves because these numbers are horrible. i actually almost feel sorry for him because it seems like he's at the bottom of the abyss. there's no ladder or no rope to
2:05 pm
pull him out. how do you correct this, bob? >> i'm sure you are feeling sorry for him. i can feel the pain from right next to you. a couple things we have to keep in mind is our biggest market, europe, has crashed. and that has hurt us a lot. there's not much he can do about that. there are some signs, i think, that there may be -- there may be some up side to this. but remember this, that unemployment figures have nothing to do with re-elections. we've gone back over this over and over and over again. what does have an impact is disposable income in your pocket. one good news is the price of gasoline -- can i finish? >> you can finish but stop throwing out something first that's -- clearly is refutable and then throw out a number that's not good involvement ahead. >> it's refutable because a bun of political scientists said nobody has been reelected with 7.2% unemployment. that's only been about eight elections. but the disposable income goes back a long way and the price of
2:06 pm
gasoline was fallen. that puts more disposable income in people's pockets. that's the best thing i can say. but barack obama, how does he get out of it? mitt romney. >> you can't just go an mitt romney alone. yesterday the president said in my second term i will fix obamacare. if i'm a voter now i would say you spent the first four years passing this monstrosity we know nothing about and now you want another chance so you can fix it? he's off his game. >> i want to pick up on that because i think there is this underlying anxiety about some of the things that's happened the last three and a half years that's caused the slowish growth of our economy which is, one, the stimulus didn't work. two, that taxes are uncertain. people do not know we are facing a slew of faction increases, and businesses can't plan. you have the healthcare bill that is hanging in the balance, and you have the dodd-frank, which is the banking rules that
2:07 pm
are still being written and too big to fail but too big to rescue. nobody is sure what is going on. so there is all this uncertainty that president obama could do something about now as president, not as candidate, that i think would behoove them to try to do. >> since the first stimulus check went out until now we've created 4.5 million jobs. jamie, not going to like this and i'm not suggesting this is something you can hang on bush, but in the three battle grounds states they polled, over 50% in every one of those states believed that the reason for this recession is because obama inherited a terrible one from george bush. now that's something, at three years down the road or going into the fourth year is something i was surprised to see would last that long. >> news flash, george bush is not on the ballot. and in that same poll romney's like ability did go up. >> from 33 to 38, right?
2:08 pm
>> a little bit -- some stuff from yesterday. but first, bob, number one, no president has in fact been elected with higher than 7.4% unemployment. that's number one. number two, stimulus checks went out, $852 billion were spent. if you want to take dollars per job, dana is right, your numbers are wrong. and what's the third one? >> we didn't do the dollars per job. this came out yesterday. it was -- it's somewhere, depending on how they average it out, but regardless of the jocks that were created under the stimulus, it was either $540,000 to $4.1 million cost per job so actually you could have cut and sent checks. >> why didn't you? >> all those employed for that amount of money and had the same impact. >> could we remember the $255 million of tim will you was tax cuts for small business? >> we do know. >> of course, we won't go other into that, will we. >> some win toward green energy projects. can we hear mitt romney as solyndra yesterday? >> if the business had done
2:09 pm
spectacularly well, the shareholders should have done very, very well. on the other hand, if the business failed as it did, it's the taxpayers that get stuck with losing a half a billion dollars. so it's a heads and his cronies win and tails and the taxpayers lose. >> bingo. >> go ahead. >> it's so smart for him to go to solyndra because when he's talking to the voters he's talking about their money that was wasted. when obama comes out and talks about bain can't 258, he's talking about private money and he doesn't have the support of democrats to back him up. so his one little message that he has sent working. >> and they sold off all the solyndra stuff, even the pen till cups and the desks, but why didn't they take the sign down? it was there waiting for that. >> when enron went under, the guys at enron were the biggest jerks on the planet. they hated everyone, they ran people over.
2:10 pm
when enron went belly up, i tried to buy the crooked e. i wanted to buy the sign and put it on my front lawn. >> what happened? >> someone bought it. >> put it on ebay. >> mitt romney made an allegations yesterday that was absolutely obscene. he said it was crony capitalism and obama's will profit from this. and he cannot prove it and he's wrong. why were you 47th in the country in job creation, and he ducked it. >> first of all, he inherited that from his predecessors. >> we inherited from bush, so there you go. >> so your point about dax cuts and the stimulus bill, part of the problem is whether or not i said before, they are not -- there's no certainty, there's no permanence. so a one time tax cut is not a growing strong economy make, that's been proven, and now romney's challenge is to say how he would make it different. and andrea and kim had a right as well. you cannot just run against somebody. you have to be for something. and what is the white house running on? that's is key.
2:11 pm
>> the economy between now and the time he inherited it. >> that is one case mitt romney can win by not running for anything. >> he doesn't have to. >> it can obama-omicses that failed. >> something we said at this table, this bain strategy might not be a good idea. listen. >> and i think he had a good business career. if you go in and you try to save a failing company, you can go into a company, have cut-backs, try to make it more productive with the purpose of saving it. and when you try, like anything else you try, you don't always succeed. so i don't think that we ought to get into the position where we say this is bad work. this is good work. >> whoops. >> here's the problem why he's not going to get re-elected, obama, because he doesn't get it. if he had a little bit more clinton in it, a move more
2:12 pm
toward the center more sensible about the economy and try to tag team on romney with this bain thing which is failing. >> are you saying he's not getting re-elected right now? is that what you are saying. >> i'm saying if the election were held tomorrow or monday morning or tuesday morning, he would not win. >> that's ridiculous. that's absolutely absurd. >> and corey backer, dianne feinstein, deavailable patrick, ed rendell, all democrats saying the same thing. it's not just gill clinton. and we talked about this a lot, the expectations at the white house raised for themselves in 2008. they are the ones that said if we didn't pass the stem plus unemployment would go above 8%, and by the way, where's the rest of that stimulus money? >> exactly. >> there was a chart this morning with the stimulus the white house put out, that unemployment would never go above 8 and at this time in the recovery it would be under 5, 5.5%, and without the stimulus
2:13 pm
it will be as high as 6%, 6.5% and meanwhile it's 8. >> when they first came out with the prediction, you never know. you can't tell the circumstances or whatever you want to blame it on in the future, you never know. and same goes for the stock market. and the recovery. >> are you all suggesting that the economy that lost jobs as a result of that? >> no, i'm saying it didn't do as promised. >> they have done quite well. >> can we play one more sound bite? >> let's do another edited sound bite. >> david axelrod, on the trail, sr. great for president obama, when he was unveiling the portrait. will listen to axelrod yesterday. >> i get tweets from some of these folks so i feel close to them. [chanting in the background] >> you can shout down speakers myself, but it's hard to etch a step the truth away. [laughter] >> if i were him i wouldn't have
2:14 pm
gone up there. but can i make one point? the people you listen to, including bill clinton, are all incredibly large contributors from the people like bain. >> jay carney couldn't even explain the difference between solyndra and bain. >> but to go to axelrod, i think axelrod, anytime to political consultant gets out and does a rally, you know you are in some trouble. as a carter political consultant, you don't go out and do a rally for your candidate. >> i think they are afraid to send anybody else out because they are afraid of what they are going to say. >> got to go. got to leave it there. you are not going to believe this one or maybe you will. after 24 hours after john edwards gets on the hook, his miss stress at the center of the scandal is already cashing in. we've got some details.

2:20 pm
new one. give generously, right, andrea? what do you think? >> well, you wonder, though, if there hadn't been any coordination. i would think he wouldn't want her to release the book during the trial, and it seemed like they kept their relationship on the down low. they say they are obviously not together. there have been photos of them in the south together. but the good news for everybody here is dave matthews is now free. remember he was going to play at their wedding? we can call greg and let him know because people love the dave matthews band. >> i won be surprised if john edwards writes a book too. he will have to reduty what she says. >> what really happened again. >> you love this story a lot, i know. >> i love conspiracies. you know i love con spears sis. and this wreaks of them splitting up because they will sell more books and after they sell more books they will get back together. >> you want to step further than
