tv   FOX and Friends Saturday  FOX News  June 2, 2012 3:00am-7:00am PDT

3:00 am
it is saturday, june 2nd. i'm alisyn camerota. trouble courtroom. sentenced to prison for the killing of protesters during last year's uprising, both his sons have been acquitted. we have a leif report for you. >> more bad economic news here at home. the president, some say passing the buck. >> my message to congress is now is not the time to play politics. now is not the time to sit on your hands. >> the president's remarks not sitting well with house speaker john boehner. hear his response ahead. >> then a run away stroller heading for a busy street. look at this. can you imagine? oh my god but a quick-thinking hero saves the day.
3:01 am
holy cow. "fox & friends" begins right now. >> always disturbing. >> good morning, everybody, we have breaking news at this hour for you. because, in fact, we have this fox news alert, the verdict coming in just moments ago for former egyptian president hosni mubarak. he has been found guilty. he has been sentenced to life in prison. >> leland vittert was there for the sentencing. he joins us live from cairo with the details. leland? >> good morning, guys. there's with a certainly a lot of clashes inside the classroom and outside of the courtroom we had a lot of clashes going on. i'm going to it step out of the shot. can you still see the riot police there in their battle gear. two or three people deep and backed up by the armored personnel carriers in egyptian army with machine guns. protesters out here were
3:02 am
people whose family members died tahrir square. that's what he was on trial for. inside the courtroom at police academy scuffle broke out as the verdict was announced against hosni mubarak. he led egypt for 30 years. hard to explain how big of a change there is in this country from being the leader of the arab world 30 years as a dictator to president of president two years later being tried by your own army and as you see convicted there inside that cairo courtroom of murdering the protesters in tahrir square. some 800 people died inside the square. mubarak 84 years old. will now serve the rest of his life in prison there was a built of change that we just received word of in the past couple of minutes. for a long time flown to court in the helicopter every day. a number of his soldiers salute him as he goes back to the hospital every day. the prosecutor has just
3:03 am
announced that mubarak will spend the rest of his life in a prison. the conditions in a cairo prison or egyptian prison are certainly not nearly as posh as those were in his hospital room that is something that is learnly going to be made a big deal out of the next few days. we are in a very interesting transition time in cairo as we are between the two rounds of presidential elections. this was seen as a real litmus test whether the arm was going to be a hack for the old regime and continue this regime where mubarak would have been acquitted or get a slap on the wrist or if he gets something very serious like this sentence of life in evan prosecute. back to you in new york. >> thanks, leland. >> you wonder if president assad in syria is seeing how it ends for hosni mubarak maybe this tells them it may end this way for me if i don't do something. >> we hope. >> turn attention to politics back here at home. yesterday was not a good day for the obama administration. they were there, of course, they get these numbers a couple hours ahead of time or i think even the night before.
3:04 am
they get these jobs nubsz. they had to know it wasn't going to be good. their response though to those paltry job numbers came fast and furious within 60 members the obama ha administration responded and pointing the finger at number of other places other than his own administration. take a listen. >> and just like at this time last year, our economy is still facing some serious head winds. we had high gas prices, a month two, months ago and they are starting to come down, spiking, still hitting people's wallets pretty hard. that has an impact. and then most prominently, most recently we have had a crisis in europe's economy that is having an impact worldwide and it's starting to cast a shadow on our owns a well. so my message to congress is now is not the time to play politics. now is not the time to sit on your hands. the american people expect their leaders to work hard no matter what year it is.
3:05 am
so right now congress should pass a bill to help prevent more layoffs so we can put thousands of teachers and police officers and firefighters back on the job. >> prevent more layoffs. clearly no idea how to create more jobs at this point. now, if your best hope is preventing more layoffs, this is bad news for his re-election chances. the economy we found a couple days earlier growing at 1.%. we also found out 49,000 fewer jobs were created the two previous months. there is very little if any good news about this economy right now. >> may was a bad month. each lower, 69,000 jobs created, lower than economists predicted. it's interesting because house speaker john boehner sounded like he actually agreed with the president on one point. >> yeah. >> the president said look, it's up to congress. congress should do this. he said basically i have a legislative to-do list that i announced. why aren't they doing any of these things. john boehner said it's actually the senate where things are getting clogged. listen.
3:06 am
>> 30 bills sitting in the united states senate. why don't they pick up the bills and pass them and help the american people instead of playing politics over there. >> do-nothing congress right now. other people saying look, this has nothing to do with the obama administration. these are things outside of his control to be honest with you, eurozone crisis has little to do with what the administration can handle. china's slow down, manufacturing sector in china is troubling for the world. they are in the getting american imports or building as much as they were. the housing crisis. who would have thought china would be facing housing crisis. getting imports and construction materials. a lot of that stuff comes from the united states. >> how much of what happened in europe impacted those jobs numbers? it's not real clear. i mean, i mean some impact to the president's credit but not enough to explain 9,000 jobs. >> there are still things he could do domestically. could have kept his eye on the ball with jobs. solution for jobs regardless
3:07 am
of what is happening. >> keystone. >> there is some ways to dice and part these numbers. mitt romney had his own interpretation of these jobs numbers and whose fault it is. >> the president's policies and his handling of the economy has been dealt a harsh indictment this morning and it continues. we have had 40 straight months with unemployment over 8%. unfortunately you have had a president that's been more focused on his perspective of historic legislative achievements than he has been on getting people back it work. jobs are job one for the presidency. this president instead put in place obama care which his own team concluded would slow the recovery. and it has. >> i don't know the evidence on that yet on the obama care issue. but certainly the white house quickly responded to mitt romney on that and said, look, he as governor of massachusetts had one of the worst job growth records in the country. so they said look for him to
3:08 am
be giving his ideas about exactly job growth up there in massachusetts. >> yeah, speaking of governors as you know there is a massive battle brewing and it's a bellwether battle in wisconsin. so many people are looking at that state to see if scott walker the governor will actually be recalled. it's interesting because the president has not gone to wisconsin. even though that's a battleground state and some people are saying why isn't the president helping scott walker's opponent. but president bill clinton did go to the hometown of scott walker's opponent barrett. tom barrett. >> milwaukee make mayor he was campaigning for him and said what would happen if scott walker is not recalled. >> now they look at wisconsin and they see america's battleground. >> that's right. >> between people who want to work together to solve problems and people who want to divide and conquer. people who know that creative
3:09 am
cooperation is working in america and people who want constant conflict. nobody is right all the time. and a broken clock is right twice a day. >> to have a divide and conquer strategy is nuts. ordinarily i'm against recalling election. i went to try to fight one in california. but sometimes it is the only way to avoid a disastrous course. >> interesting because right now things look pretty good for scott walker. if you look at the polls. we haven't seen a single poll that shows barrett in the lead. most bear out between 5 and 9 point lead. this is the latest from the marquette law school. 50, 45, scott walker doing well ahead the june 5th deadline for that recall. what are the national implications here? we will talk about that later on in the program. what does it mean north battle against public sector unions. what does it mean in terms t of wisconsin clearly being up for grabs if walker wins?
3:10 am
you bet mitt romney pours some attention and some money into that state. it's up for grabs. >> it looks like a battalion ground at this point. you say we will talk about that national lay little bit later. it's interesting why the president hasn't yet gone there. some say well maybe he doesn't want to tie his wagon to that star right now. more on that coming up a little bit later in the show. >> let me tell you what other news is happening in your headlines. two suspected militants have been killed in northwest pakistan. american drone reportedly firing two missiles at a motorbike in south waziristan region. fifth strike in less than two weeks despite protests over the u.s. drone campaign. the strikes further complicating negotiations over reopening supply routes for nato and u.s. troops in afghanistan. the pentagon is announcing plans to ship more navy warships to the pacific region over the next several years. speaking in singapore leon panetta confirming by the year 202060% of the fleet will be assign there as part of a new
3:11 am
strategy. >> some view the increased emphasis by the united states, asian pacific region as some kind of challenge to china. i reject that view entirely. >> pa at the panetta insisted tt the defense department could afford increased in asia. something john mccain later disputed. >> realities are we are retiring ships. we are having the smallest navy probably since beginning of world war ii. we are facing further sequestration which the senate majority leader said was fine with him. so, it is a mismatch between the realities of our commitment and the funding for that commitment. >> panetta's seven day visit overseas includes stops in vietnam and india. spaceship enterprise journey
3:12 am
home air sea and space museum in new york city. yesterday crews moved the airport from protective hanger at jfk airport. later this afternoon it will be lifted by crane and placed on to a barge there tomorrow it will be moved by tug boat. how many different modes of transportation can it use? it is going to be docking in new jersey. the shuttle is scheduled to remain until tuesday. that's when it begins the last leg of its tripe to the museum. couldn't it just fly there it never flew. the ernesto prize never flew. >> coming up next, when the president hired his white house staff, he turned to his chicago friends first. now a new book, painting a somewhat disturbing picture of how chicago politicians really operate. take you behind the scenes. >> new york's mayor waging war on soda. >> nice dress. >> critics took out the full page ad in the paper calling him the nanny.
3:13 am
>> mrs. doubtfire. graduation, huh ?
3:14 am
crazy, right ? well, with this droid razr by motorola on verizon 4g lte, you guys can stay in touch. ( grunts ) cool. you can video call on skype... send photos. yeah, okay. ah, let's do it. get $100 off any motorola 4g lte smartphone, like the droid 4 now just $99.99.
3:15 am
verizon. i haand then i have eleven my grandkids. right when you see them, they're yours, it's like, ah, it's part of me. it's me again. now that i'm retiring they all have plans for me. i'm excited.
3:16 am
>> let's remember that one. >> let's remember that john fund just admit it we are not to you yet. president obama spending a rare night alone in his chicago home after a rare night of fundraising. president some under president's circle coming under scrutiny because of their ties to the windy city. >> columnist for the national review online john fund. we are not talking about the new york mets just yet, john. later on in the program. tell us part of the ineller circle of president obama is revealed in this new book the
3:17 am
amateur. you write about this and say it deserves a second look. why? >> every president brings people very close to them influence and often have conflicts of interest and problems. we learn about that jimmy carter had his brother billy. bill clinton had a whole cast of characters. but barack obama doesn't seem to get that kind of scrutiny. we another very little about acre eric whitcher official gate keeper to the white house. so close to the obama mass. email the white house i'm coming over and they waive him in. >> one of the president's and first lady's best friends. >> yes. >> you call him the geat keeper. what evidence do you have that he has ever done anything untoward? he is just their friend. >> he was the gay who negotiated with rod blagojevich's office who should be the next united states senator. he has also the person and reverend jeremiah wright has said this on tape, who offered him $150,000 if he stopped talking about barack obama during the 2008 campaign. and that is something that's very interesting because as we know jeremiah wright was one of the biggest threats to
3:18 am
barack obama's candidacy when he ran against hillary clinton. >> to our knowledge, is that offer of bribery, do we have any idea whether that was made at the president's knowledge or this is just something whitcher decided to do on his own? >> we don't know that. this is why there shoulden questions. every president has his inner circle scrutinized. this president whether it's valerie jarrett the daily machine that he came from. remember, barack obama was a product of the daily machine which is a corrupt political machine in many senses. he himself is not corrupt but he came out with all kinds of interesting associations and all kinds of interesting friends. >> is that how you rise through chicago politics? >> does anyone else ever rise through chicago politics unless they have the dailey machine behind them? no. rahm image was congress with daley's. guess the white house bill daley's. it's in the daley machine. it's in his name.
3:19 am
>> sounds like you are saying there is guilt by association. >> every candidate gets scrutinized. we had the "new york times" look at ann rom nips horse trainer. let's have the articles on the president's inner circle, who they are, their association and who this guy eric whitt eric. tony rezko working for rod blagojevich the former governor who is in federal prison. the bottom line is there is an awful lot of people who have had scrapes with the law and associations that haven't been looked at. >> john fund, gotcha. you are calling attention to it in our article here for the national review the chicago way. thanks so much, john. good to see you. >> >> coming up next, the bad chick news continues. just 69,000 jobs added in may, county white house do anything to turn this around? can we show that strange video again? a job creator joins us next. >> i will show it to you now. baby on board, run away
3:20 am
stroller headed straight for the street. you won't believe how this one ends. >> now it makes sense. mine was earned off vietnam in 1968. over the south pacific in 1943. i got mine in iraq, 2003. usaa auto insurance is often handed down from generation to generation. because offers a superior level of protection, and because usaa's commitment to serve the military, veterans and their families is without equal. begin your legacy, get an auto insurance quote.

3:22 am
3:23 am
>> welcome back. quick head lines now. nato has rescued two workers and colleagues in early morning raid in northern afghanistan. a group kidnapped by militants back on may 22nd. the four worked for med air. that's an organization based in switzerland talking about the right place at the right time. the garbage truck turned hero quickly came to the rescue. he began honking his horn and blocking traffic running after the stroller. the baby's frantic mom catching up soon after. looks like no harm done. unbelievable.
3:24 am
clayton? >> the kid was like wee, that was fun. well, listen to this. the third disappointing labor report in a row. renewing fears of another possible recession. only 69,000 jobs added last month. unemployment rose to 8.2%. bad news all around. what will it take to turn things around. small business owner amilya antonetti. i was trying yesterday as these numbers came out to try to find some sort of silver lining, a tin lining a metal line lining were you able to find anything. >> validation you need to get out of the way. you cannot fix it let the private sector and the small business community fix this and correct. this administration continues to make it worse and worse and worse and worse. and we're going to sit back and stop until they stop it. >> we had the president he yesterday calling on congress what he thinks would be some way of helping small businesses and trying to jump start the economy by asking congress to pass this small business tax cut so he think
3:25 am
could do something with. that is that drop in the bucket. >> it is. reality business owner. in order for me to take on the risk to bring on employee. if that employee costs me 2,000ness their salary. it cost me another $2,000 a month right now in overhead. that means i'm taking a $4,000 risk. all of these things that they're trying to do is minute miss school. i'm going to give you $10 -- mark zandi saying the truth is in between on all of this. back to when we were adding 200,000 jobs a month. people were saying that euphoria too much. now 69,000 jobs. it's too little. the truth is somewhere in between and maybe we are better off than we currently see in these numbers. what's your take? >> i don't think so. the reality is not taking noah count the 1099. all the independent contractors, right? think about all people in media and august the people
3:26 am
that file a 1099. you can't account for them anywhere. all these obsolete. nobody is hiring anymore. all those people are in the marketplace. people who filed their own taxes and income. now they are going look i don't have any more clients. everything squeezes. the only thing to cut now is actually hard w-2 cutting. we will see that in a numbers come back out. >> is that the what the fix is. get small businesses hiring again with 69,000 jobs this past go around. it seems paltry. is europe the problem? is china the problem not hiring on manufacturing front? what can be done. >> if i'm going to take a risk. i want to have predictable i'm going to make a return on my investment. the risk is too high right now to actually bring on employee. >> maybe a freelancer or a part-time person is more likely right now those numbers
3:27 am
are false. quick little hit for demand. make demand in the marketplace. it's not necessarily local jobs in the u.s. it depend on what product people are buying. it can be stimulating china or somewhere else in the world. this is where we keep saying if you had a focus group of people saying these are the products that we need to be stimulating so it stays local so you can actually then stimulate our economy. not the global economy. then you are getting a little bit more focused on being able it to help us on the home front. >> unpredictable is that the president's problem or europe and china or all of it? >> it's the administration. if the administration is going to say look i'm going to give you tools and resources because we want to say jobs are the number one, then you need have a group of people together that understand how to put jobs in the market. the drafings don't know anything about small business. they have never had a business for a long period of time. they have never been successful. they have never run less than 25 people. you are asking questions and coming up with products for people who have never done it doesn't make any sense.

3:48 am
really fascinating is this beach manhole. we think of the way in which we connect to the internet. maybe it goes up to a satellite. it's here, it's under the sand we actually connect. take a look at the screen folks at home. what is this? what are we looking at here that. >> is a manhole on a beach near lisbon in portugal. this is the place where 5,000-mile undersea cable goes down the western coast of africa land. this is the spot where it connects to the continent. >> these cables connect and send email goes off to servers or data centers in some part of the world and it's routed back. >> yeah. almost like air travel. always traveling through these major hubs going internationally. internet same way. passes through a small list of buildings. >> facebook had a pretty big outage for a few hours i think the other night. barely measured a blip. when a massive company like facebook goes down and barely measures a blip. what does that say about the size of the internet. >> there is a lot of it. we're online all the time.

3:54 am
judge. what happened here? >> it was all broadcast on national television there was a speaker phone on the judge's desk, basically. and all his -- all zimmerman's family members are calling in we got no money, we got no money. we are broke, we are broke. there is no resources. zimmerman's attorney is arguing there is no money, there is money. so in a murder case, homicide, they seth bail at 150,000 which is very low. i mean, usually there is no bail. and then the next day the lawyer comes in and is like judge, this is $200,000 that we forgot to mention yesterday. >> did that he raised via the internet for his defense. >> is it possible he didn't know he raised it. >> here is what is taking so long. why is it taking so lock for the judge to make his decision to revoke his bail. apparently the prosecutors have gone over the tapes in jail when he was in jail between him, zimmerman and his wife and it appears there was some code going on that there
3:55 am
is 185 tacos in taco bell today which meant, i'm making that up. but meant there is $185,000 in your account meaning zimmerman had knock. he takes the stand. he lies. and now there will be ramifications because trial. if he takes the stand and he lies, the prosecutor can say well you stood up here a year ago and you lied to everybody. you lied to the judge when you said you were broke but you really had $200,000 in the bank. >> or maybe he just liked tacos. >> are a though likes cannolis. >> rielle hunter this week obviously john edwards gets off the hook. a number of mistrials and not guilty and one portion of the proceeding. so is he off the hook now. rielle hunter says she is going to right this tell-all book about the proceedings. can he be re-tried because of the mistrial portion much that. >> absolutely. the not guilty stands forever in perpetuity as we say in the law. it's um to the prosecutor. they probably have another 10
3:56 am
days or whatever to go and tell the judge, judge we are going to retry him or we are not. from the interviews that the jurors have been giving all over the media. i would be a little surprised at this point now if they re-try him. all the jurors keep consistently saying the evidence wasn't there. the evidence wasn't there. i haven't heard an exact count. >> could the evidence come in a book? was she right. >> i doubt it she must have been spoken to a hundred times but many times. if she had anything that was so powerful the prosecutor would have put her on the stand. however, if there is a re-trial, the prosecutor can say hey we didn't have enough the first time. let's throw her up there and let seems what he has to say. >> arthur aidala gait to see you. >> always a pleasure. >> coming up, do you know hot vice president is? >> i do. it's dan quayle. >> turns out you are actually a little closer than some the miss u.s.a. contestants who had no clue. wait until you hear their

>> good morning, everybody. we begin with a fox news alert this morning. the verdict coming in early this morning as former egyptian president hosni mubarak has been found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. >> leland vittert was there for the sentencing. he joins us live now. good morning. >> good morning ali, hosni mubarak 30 year dictator of egypt is now in prison. he will remain there according to this sentence for life. today in the courtroom, about 20 miles outside of cairo, there were scuffles that broke out as this verdict was announced. there is a lot of people here who are not happy both because they think the president has continued to do a good job for egypt and they think he should be set free. other people who are angry because he did not get the death penalty. there were 800 people who died
4:02 am
in tahrir square, many from gunfire by security forces. that's what president mubarak were charged with. he and his sons were acquitted of counts of corruption and insider trading. that didn't make loot of people happy. we were outside of the prison there and talked to a number of the family members who scuffled with riot police who were out for an all-out battle. that didn't happen. a number of people jed we just think this is a fair sentence for someone who certainly was involved in killing now so much people. going forward this what it looks like. mubarak has been moved from posh hospital room into the prison which is not the kind of conditions used to in the presidential palace two years ago. and egypt leads to elections in about two weeks. back to you in new york. >> what a scene. leland vittert. we will check back in with you. >> let's turn our attention to the state of wisconsin. obviously a hot bed right now. a bellwether as ali put it
4:03 am
earlier because of the recall election currently going on there between walk irand barrett. sounds like something out in the wild west. the wild west showdown if you will. >> texas rangers. >> hatfield and mcchoice? president clinton president obama has not yet arrived but listen to president clinton. >> now they look at wisconsin and they see america's battleground. >> that's right. >> between people who want to work together to solve problems and people who want to divide and conquer. people who know that creative cooperation is working in america and people who want constant conflict. nobody is right all the time. and a broken clock is right twice a day. to have a divide and conquer strategy is nuts. ordinarily i'm against recall elections. i went to try to fight one in
4:04 am
california. but sometimes it is the only way to avoid a disastrous course. >> interesting because what clayton said the president is not there. now former president clinton is. meanwhile barack obama is in minnesota he is right next door. why? this is a local election about local issues. most critics would say is he not there because he doesn't want to put his face on a big loss there. >> particularly since scott walker is leading in the polls now there is a new marquette university poll shows him with 57 point lead. so it could be political trusts for the president to get tethered to this race. some people think it is a bellwether including carl rove who talked about why this is such an impactful race for the country. >> i think there are three impacts. first of all obviously will be whether or not the wisconsin
4:05 am
experiments of reigning in the power of collective bargaining rights of certain public employee unions and having transparency in these retirement and health benefits and equality between public sector and private sector benefits. that's a big experiment. it's a model for the rest of the country. if it succeeds, if he survives, other states will be emboldened to take this up banner of reform. second thing is it's going to have a big impact on determining what kind of wisconsin there is in november. are we going to have the wisconsin of 2008 in which there was, you know, a 14 point victory obama or 2004. gore carried the state by 5,000 votes. in 2004. john kerry carried it by less than half a percentage point. very competitive presidential state and a slightly bigger -- slightly smaller victory by walker would indicate the state is more like 2000 and 2004 and worthy of being tossed into the battleground
4:06 am
listings. finally it's going to have a big impact on organized labor. it has put a huge amount of money into the election and last year and this year and we'll see how good that investment comes out. >> all eyes whether or not this is investment place for mitt romney's campaign. if they see that scott walker wins this becomes a battleground states. asd more that youfield will see. >> the election is tuesday. let's get to the rest of your headlines. the pentagon announced new strategy increasing u.s. military presence in the pacific. lee on panetta confirmed 202060% navy warships will be assigned there. >> some view the increased emphasis by the waits asia pacific region as some kind of challenge to china. i reject that view entirely.
4:07 am
senator john mccain was also there he commented on the defense department's finding. such as increase despite the recent budget cuts. >> realities are we are retiring ships. we are having the smallest navy probably since beginning of world war ii. it is a mismatch between the realities of our commitment and the funding for that commitment. >> alisyn: panetta said the two often feuding world powers must learn to work together for everyone's benefit. two suspected militants killed in northwest pakistan. an american drone reportedly firing two missiles at a motorbike in the south waziristan region. this is the fifth strike in less than two weeks. despite protests over the u.s. drone campaign. the strikes further complicating negotiations about reopening supply routes for nato and u.s. troops in afghanistan. one small step down and only three left to go in the odyssey of the space shuttle enterprise. yesterday, a crew at jfk airport rolled it out of a hanger and parked it near the

4:10 am
waste your dollars, your hard-earned taxpayer dollars. it just never ceases to amaze me. workers work from home. normally whether you have an arrangement like this with your bogs save money on commuting and save gas save money on travel. they somehow racked up $750,000 from working from home. when hot tub jeff neeley emailed colleagues we're not making this up. omg says jess jeffy. 100 virtuals and pretty serious grades. this is a fine mess we have gotten into. this will take your breath away. >> do not share further. >> don't share it further. it is the shocking number. $750,000. what were they spending that money on? how could they justify submitting those travel expenses? by the way that was just a nine month period. >> travel expenses over nine months.
4:11 am
the 95 gsa employees were working from home and collecting $750,000. >> top 12 collected 200 grand. just 12 of them working from home. >> how would you even have time to rack that up. >> the more it stinks and makes you cry. >> it is the like an onion. >> these what does last month's dismal jobs report mean for you? next guest says it could be another recession. >> plus do you know hot vice president is. it turns out that many miss u.s.a. contestants have no clue. >> oh god.

>> woke back, everybody. another month, another dismal jobs report. rising 8.2% for may. the president responding to the report saying the recovery is slow. but it's there. >> the economy is growing again but it's not growing as fast as we want it to grow. our businesses have created almost 4.3 million new jobs over the last 27 mobs months. but as we learned in today's jobs report, we're still not creating them as fast as we want. >> but why? let's ask our next guest peter more reiss see an economist and professor of business at the university of maryland. good morning to you, sir. >> good morning. >> why? why are only 69 now, jobs being created in the month of may and you look at the two months prior. 49,000 fewer jobs were created than first reported. what's behind all of this? >> big picture, not enough demand for what americans make because we have a huge trade deficit and it costs too much
4:16 am
to make stuff in america. when president obama campaigned in 2008, he promised to do something about the trade deficit with china. and he hasn't acted. he promised to develop more domestic oil and gas and he shut down the gulf. he promised to lower healthcare costs and he has raised them. finally small businesses can't get credit because he has amall gaited all the deposits or 60% of them not to exaggerate among the new york banks that contribute mightily to his election. as a consequence they don't lend money on main street. just about everything this guy hasn't done and has done has made the situation worse. so now we're hittings the summer. people will be hitting the roads. spending money, traveling more. any chance do you see these numbers going up and the economy beginning it to come to life? is there any sign of that? >> well, the numbers that we give you are seasonally adjusted. so we adjust out for that so that, you know, june date is
4:17 am
comparable with january. however, all the signs are the economy is slowing. a lot of the prosperity -- whats pro parity we have had has been borrowing again. people borrowing to buy new cars to replace those that got old during the recession those sales are starting to trail off. do we have the recession before or after the election? if we have if the economy tanks in june and july mr. romney hasn't been that successful in making it an issue. >> well, whether it's under a romney administration or whether as the president said yesterday, congress gets to work right now passing some bills. what is there that either one could do to get some jobs created and get the growth at a better number than 1.9%. >> yesterday the president blamed the bush administration in code and blamed the congress and what is going to be n. europe could become to
4:18 am
blame. there actions the president himself could take to improve the situation dramatically right now. >> like what? >> for example he could ease back on the banking regulations that are tieing up lending to small businesses. he could open up drilling in the gulf. and he could do what he promised to do over and over again in 2008, and then broke his word to the american worker. and that's finally do something about china. there is actions we could take. he has told the chinese he could. the trouble is they have called his bluff and guess what they found out? our president has got real weak knees. he have very good at tongue lashing critics out of the room in front of supporters. comes to standing up against equals internationally this guy comes up short. >> both parties are dug. in nothing is getting done before november. peter moreci thanks for being with us. >> take care. >> green energy in the red. this time 1 billion in taxpayer dollars to make a million green cars how many

4:26 am
helped us with the relevance and in loyalty: absolutely right. i think with the wedding of william and kate you seem to some extent the reinvention of the monarchy. they represent new trends that lie ahead. a new vision of the monarchy. they make or they seem to have made the relevant monarchy much more relevant. and i have seen the excitement generated by the wedding. i'm happily in london. and i feel sort of jubilee fever here. the town is gripped by the excitement. >> we do hear it's going to be very festive. all sorts of pomp and circulation. we can't wait to see more of it. robert webster. nicholas thanks so much for explaining it to us. >> great pleasure to be joining you. >> thank you. >> thanks. >> all right. you will want to hear this before your next beach trip. my son's train exploded. we have a true story on that

>> welcome back, another college feeling the impact of healthcare reform law. christian university in florida is wanting students, healthcare cost also double in the fall. alternative or pay up. one of the students paying the impact student at clearwater christian college and he joins us this morning. curtis, nice to see you this morning. >> good to see you, too clayton. >> so you opened the letter and you were shocked to find out what was inside this letter. what did the letter say to you? >> well, it was from the director of our human resources department. and she basically said that due to the affordable care act, my healthcare insurance costs were going to double. >> and this was all rolled of course into the money you are already paying with college we know how expensive it already is. what would that mean in terms of dollar and cents to a student who, look, let's be honest we all ate like ramen
4:46 am
noodles, cheerios out of a box. >> i paid $465 my freshman year. $600 my sophomore year. and then within a year's time it's more than doubled much it's gone from 600 to $1,300. to be honest, i have to pay for tuition and room and board. and all those things and this is just becoming unbearable. >> wow that is crazy. here is what clearwater christian college says in a statement. they say due to the patient protection and affordable care act the cost of student health insurance has doubled. in addition most insurance carrier are hesitant to provide contracts due to unpredictability of the cost of the claims. were you surprised at this movement from the afordable healthcare act. which is that president obama and his administration had promised that this would help students. this would reduce rates. make it more affordable. >> right. absolutely. you know, president obama and the democratic leaders in congress. they championed this bill and
4:47 am
they told the country and they told it specifically told college students that this bill would lower the cost of health insurance. and not only have my costs risen, they have more than doubled. >> the hhs is not commenting specifically on your situation but they are saying in general this. i will put it up on the screen and have you respond. students who purchase health insurance through their college or university will also benefit from the new consumer protection in the law. what do you say to that? >> well, you know what? if i had wanted those protections i could have purchased those or i could have gone with a different provider. look, the insurance plan that clearwater had covered everything i needed. it was affordable. i'm just disappointed. you know, nancy pelosi told us that, you know, we had to pass this bill to find out what's in it i'm sure finding out what's in it for myself. i never thought that it would directly affect me. >> president obama did very well in 2008 among young voters. one of the areas that the president thinks is critical to his re-election is the youth vote.
4:48 am
what are you hearing on campus among your friends, your college classmates about this administration? >> well, you know, the problem with this bill is that it doesn't just effect -- i'm personally a republic and it doesn't just affect college republicans. it's going to effect college students across the country. and when you are messing with somebody's pocketbook, that's not going to make you happy. so, you know, i honestly don't know what the people at my school are thinking. but i don't think obama is going to have a good a turn out in the college age group as did he in 2008. >> especially if a will the of kids are opening those letters and having the same reaction that you h curtis, good luck to you there. we hope things turn around a little bit soon on this law. >> thank you clayton. >> voter id laws under fire from the attorney general. he says the laws jeopardize civil rights. is he just playing politics? plus, the e.p.a. using a pretty high tech surveillance program to monitor frms in the midwest. invasion of privacy? or the government just doing

cattle men in nebraska concerned about protecting their privacy are speaking out against the e.p.a.'s air surveillance program. the e.p.a. says the patrol prace is just a cost effective way to monitor the compliance of livestock operations. well now a group of nebraska lawmakers are getting involved. michelle fields from the daily caller is here. >> thank you for having me. cattle ranchers believes that flyovers the e.p.a.s to to do them to make sure that they are in compliance with the laws. cattle ranchers say it's
4:53 am
invasion of privacy. what's the line. >> the thing is a lot of people are wondering where do they get the authority to do this? they don't have probable cause. they don't have a warrant. five congressman have gotten together and they are demanding answers to how long have they been doing this and where do they get the authority it do it. invasion of privacy monitoring and taking photos of these ranches. a lot of time these ranches are people's backyards where children play. where families relax. and so a the will of people feel like that's really an invasion of their private property and their privacy. >> and from what i understand they don't necessarily know when these flyovers are going to take place. so they can't exactly prepare and tell their family this is of the land. stay inside. here is what the e.p.a. is saying quote. aerial overflights are a cost effective tool that helps the agency and our state partners minimize costs and reduce the number of on site inspections and no case is e.p.a. taken enforcement action solely on the basis of these
4:54 am
overflights. now, not necessarily about the action taken. it's about the invasion of privacy. this is a bipartisan group of congressman that you mentioned, too. >> exactly, yes. a lot of people are wondering where did they get the authority to do this because congress didn't give it to them. a lot of people are worried that, you know, that they are enforcing the rules simply by, what how on site visits. >> their argument is that they don't base any of the punishment. it's simply on acre '. i think that what they say is that, you know, obviously some of these ranches are hundreds, thousands of acres how can they cover them all. cattleman association says. they say even if it's not there. the e.p.a.'s primary focus still have privacy rights home. e.p.a. does not alert livestock producers that the flight will or has occurred.
4:55 am
so they. >> therein lies the problem, i think. >> i think it's hilarious that they are suddenly so concerned about cost effectiveness. they are never concerned about the cost effectiveness of their regulations right? suddenly it's all about money. we need to save money. >> what are the bigger question? limits of this. gets the use of drones here in the united states. there has been a the love talk about that once the movement. >> or wellian. big brother. a lot of people feel offended by that. >> michelle from the daily caller. thanks so much for coming. >> in thank you for having me. >> coming up on the show. historic moment at the white house. wasn't it? president bush returns for his portrait unveiling former president bush, press secretary dana perino. she was there to take in all the inside scoop and interesting interaction between joe biden and carl rove. maybe she know what is that was about. >> then one lawmaker calling out the tsa.

5:02 am
courtroom. it took him a while to calm things down. inside the courtroom during that trial not only was mubarak convicted of murder, he was acquitted of corruption charges as were his sons which has not made people here in egypt very happy. outside the courtroom a lot of security. minor scuffles here in downtown tire row. there has been a lot of calls for mubarak's conviction and also his execution especially by the the families who their loved oness were killed in tahrir square that so far is not going to happen. mubarak can appeal and then in the next couple of weeks guys, we move forward in egypt toward election. back to you in new york. >> who would have thought elections in egypt. all right. leland vittert life for thrust this morning. >> we have more to tell you about. two suspected militants killed in northwest pakistan. american drone firing two in

south waziristan region. fifth strike in less than two weeks despite the protest over the u.s. drone campaign. the strikes further complicating negotiations about reopening supply routes for nato and nato in afghanistan. john mica telling the agency to come clean. keeping the agency in the dark about something he calls another operations meltdown. in a statement, micah said, quote: when confirmed, the significant security system failure at the florida airport once again highlights the need to get t.s.a. out of the human resources business and back into the nation's security business a spokesperson for the tsa implied several high ranking officials may be losing their jobs still no word on what exactly this meltdown may have been. and if bill clinton's life is made into a movie. he has a star in mind who would do the job he would pick
5:04 am
george clooney. he would pick him over brad pitt. bill clinton think some prosthetic may be in order to make anymore. >> protest set particulars. >> okay. now i'm more comfortable. christina applegate. >> jonathan scheetz. >> he was in the movie. >> myself? >> go back to the one you think for me. >> that's you. that's you. you were nefarious character. >> that's clayton. that is clayton. there is me. ryan reynolds, perhaps. and threaten there is alisyn. >> jennifer aniston. >> wow. >> who would be rick? >> i don't know. i'm stuck on rick. i'm stuck on rick. >> who would play you? >> i'm not even going to go there. somebody else can decide. >> it's nice that you chose

5:06 am
the next few days and that will be good news. back to you. >> thank you so much, rick. let's talk to dana perino this morning. she is one with of, of course, the co-host of 5. she is here talking about her dogs. follow her at twitter dana perino. >> she is getting a new puppy. i was excited. >> this is a big deal. >> let's talk about the jobs numbers. in addition to your dog, there was jobs numbers on friday that were out by all accounts dismal. doesn't any silver lining any way you slice. this new yorker magazine asking the question this morning. does this mean that president obama does not get reelected? you hit that six month window right now. when most people maybe start paying attention. that's how they feel about their jobs, their lives the economy before they go to vote. what do you think? >> that is a conventional wisdom that people lock in who they are going to vote in sort of early on so there is only about 10% of america that is left undecided or at this moment or some people at the u.s.a. pageant that they might still be able to grab and convince. i just saw that when i was in makeup. the thing is the economists
5:07 am
predicted this completely wrong. so then you have to won kerr, okay, now, they have had 27 months of consecutive job growth. when president george w. bush had a 2 months of consecutive job growth they said that wasn't good enough at all. crisis at the end. when you hear president obama saying that people expect congress to do something. i'm left wondering and i follow this stuff every day when is he asking them to do. >> had a legislative to-do list that he had unveiled last month it and is sitting on their desk. >> it was pretty thin grewell if that's the case. >> their bills are stuck in the senate. >> they are. a lot of energy-related bills that would be the backbone afternoon economic push. you reap what you sow. the stimulus bill didn't work. the healthcare bill is hanging in the balance. we're waiting for a supreme court decision. people earlier on you had somebody on that was talking about as a business owner, making hiring decisions, until
5:08 am
you have more certainty on the tax code and on the healthcare piece, you are not willing to take that risk. and i don't know what possibly congress could do or president obama could do to make a difference in the election in four months. >> that's not a feasible excuse or spin as you, press secretary at the time put yourself in that how would you spin these numbers. >> i would have handled yesterday differently. okay? president obama was in minnesota do an official event and go on to six fundraisers. i think i would have said cut the fundraisers, mr. president. i think we should go back to washington after the minute society event. call for a cabinet meeting on monday morning. you should ask for the leaders of the house and senate to come down and talk about what are are the three things that could be done this month in order to help get things done and get off the campaign trail and back into the presidential seat. instead they did the fundraisers and then just this morning i see that the white house put out the schedule for next week. tuesday, meetings at the white house. wednesday, guess what? goes back to california.
5:09 am
he was just there two weeks ago to do more fundraising. >> so asset particularly. >> also just even for the economy. for the people out there who are suffering and are worried because you think okay. it was this bad in may even if they have a slight uptick in june and july it's not going to be enough. underlined anxiety as an american citizen is greying especially as you are watching what's unfolding in europe. >> romney, the criticism of him from the obama administration yesterday was what are you doing talking? when you were governor of massachusetts. romney do on the campaign trail to keep the focus on president obama? it seems to be working i is not talking about slow down in china which maybe some of this is tied to. he is focus on the administration and jobs just keep doing that? >> earlier this week president -- i'm sorry, governor romney went empty solyndra building turned out to be something a failure.
5:10 am
nobody got a pension. nobody got a slow roll out. they all just lost their jobs. american taxpayers out were out a $45 million. investigation also crony capitalism. focusing on decisions made in the last three years and how that is effecting today and looking forward and saying but what do they want to do in a second term? if president obama wants a second term. even dan balls of the "the washington post" talks today about you have to say something that you are going to do that would be different than what you are doing now. again i follow every day and i couldn't tell what you that is. let's talk about this historic moment at the white house this week when the new portrait of george w. bush was unveiled. three presidents were there. you were there. give us some of the behind the curtain color that you watched. >> you just gave me goose bumps. it was threes '. unbefore the greatest moments was when president bush 41 came in and took his place in the front row with mrs. barbara bush and i had line of sight with the twins. barbara and jenna. and everybody is teared up. he to the the most sustained
5:11 am
applause and i got to take a picture with him. >> he looks awfully happy. >> is he happy. he loves the 5. he was a proud pappa and proud citizen that day. we will never see that again in our lifetime father and son together. >> president bush get choked up. >> the only time president bush 43 got choked up was when he recognized his dad. i don't think there was a dry eye in the place for that it was a special day. politics set aside. just for a moment. i think the portraits are lovely and mrs. bush could not have looked more beautiful. >> if there is a snapshot we are curious about the moment where joe biden turns around to our friend carl rove. we had no idea what was said there do you. >> i was sitting next to carl there on the left. >> there is biden turning to carl. >> everybody was sitting down. and i could not hear him and i actually don't think carl heard him either. but i do think it was friendly. >> talking about food or something. >> i took carl as my date. basically we went in solidarity. as we were going to go through the receiving line i said carl, wait, should we go to this? we were walking in and
5:12 am
president obama had a great line he said oh, carl rove, the guy who is trying to get my portrait up here early? >> that is a good line. >> it was sweet. then president and mrs. obama had a reception for all the people and friends and family that had gathered for president bush in the east room. i'm sure they are probably thinking when are these people leaving because they were dragging us out. it was fun to see some of those staff at the white house that we hadn't seen in three years. >> if only that tone. lasted about five minutes whatever. >> nice tone where people can put aside obviously partisan politics and do something for the country and that was nice to see. >> you saw yesterday. even after three and a half years, the current job climate is still blamed on the previous president. and it's almost like you have the search and replace for all of the press statements. you just throw it in there and it's just a line. if they could move past it president obama would appear to be as presidential as he wants to be. >> showing more leadership. >> dana, great to see you.
5:13 am
>> thanks core coming. >> in host of the 5. check out the a every 5:00 p.m. >> five days a week it's very easy. >> meg ryan era. you have got mail would play dana perino. >> as a pre. >> premeth. >> coming up on the show. voter i.d. laws under fire from the attorney general. eric holder says they jeopardized civil rights. is he playing politics and stirring racial tensions we report. you decide. >> baby on board. run away stroller heading straight for the street. you won't believe how this one ends. we promise we are going to show you soon.

>> push to track down illegal immigrants was shut down by holder and the justice department. ordered florida to stop removing names of suspected illegal immigrants they suspect the purge is discriminatory. >> the move comes days after the attorney general held a meeting with black church leaders and argued that voter i.d. laws discriminated against minorities and jeopardizes the civil rights movement. joining us now is author and syndicated columnist star parker. good morning to you. >> hi, good morning. >> are these voter i.d. laws discriminatory? >> this administration knows that these voter i.d. laws and the attempts of states to update their process is not about the civil rights act. the voting rights act. or even were weather we are going to intimidate. this is mr. b. streamlining the process. which is good for all
5:18 am
americans especially in this heat and contested year. what blacks need to know and appreciate while, again, this administration is trying to intimidate them and/or toy with their emotions. what they need to know is that we are a very diverse country. there are almost now the same amount of legal immigrants in this country as there are african-americans. legal immigrants make up about 13% of the population. and the laws that govern them on voting are very complex. they are very different from those that protect the interest of blacks. the voting rights act of '65. the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendment to the constitution. what these states are doing is for all america. to make sure that the people that are voting are eligible voters. not to keep people away from the process. >> well, the attorney general says it's not just about blacks being disenfranchised. he says these new voter i.d. laws put an unfair burden also on hispanics does he have a point that hispanic voter registration is down as a
5:19 am
result of these? >> the voter registration for hispanics are not down because of these laws. what we are trying to do is update the process. illegals should not be voting. what the -- this administration under eric holder is trying to do is a bait and switch. they are trying to fear people into going to the polls. they know for a long time. keep in mind first of all the challenges that we had to let to the voting rights act 6 '65 were the democrats. democrats are the ones that use these strategies of intimidation to keep voting in their direction. so what they're trying to do is keep the roles full of people that perhaps are not eligible to vote so they then can make the process not really as pure as it needs to be. illegals should not vote. legal citizens should vote. but when we look at the downturn of the latino vote today, it has nothing to do with these changes in law. it has everything to do with this environment, this economic environment of this president. >> wanted to point out before we go in georgia after they added voter i.d. laws, the
5:20 am
numbers of latinos and blacks increased dramatically. after the voter i.d. laws. so thanks a lot. >> that's right. so what we are really looking at here is them bringing out voters. so we -- they are using fear so that voters will come out. the minority voters will come out this election season and they know that they have put at risk, especially the black community. blacks on the social issues polled exactly like republic conservatives. and so this administration is afraid because they are very upset with these african-americans that have been offended because of the recent actions of this very left wing president. >> star parker thank you very much. have a great weekend. >> thank you. >> the government clamping down on monks? they just want to build and sell their stuff to make a living they say. so why is one state standing in the monk's way? >> this is what critics in the new york say about michael bloomberg. full paged a blasting the nanny. what does governor bloomberg

>> welcome back, in keeping with the tradition, the monks of saint joseph abbey in louisiana live off the profits from goods they make. in their case they make wooden caskets. recently the state board of embalmers and funeral directors told them that making those caskets
5:25 am
style coagulation cet that we have been making for the monks for 100 years. so, without knowing it, we opened up an operation that we found out later was illegal in the state of louisiana. >> and it's illegal how? because you would need to be a registered embalmer and run a funeral home? >> that's correct. the law says that only a licensed funeral home can sell a casket in louisiana. >> and even if you were just to sell when you have described as simply a box, so if another family decided to make a pine box and sell it, they would actually be violating the law? >> that's correct. you can make it for yourself, but you can't sell them. >> and as i understand it, the way in which you would be complying with the law is, what? you would have to set up a room that would show off, have
5:26 am
the ability to show off 30 bodies? >> that's correct. we would have to become funeral directors very much. and only over the last year after the federal district federal court here in new orleans struck down the law have we been able to get business and have begun to make a little bit of profit off of our work. >> so where does it stand now? do you think do you think this is going to go to the supreme court? move to the state supreme court or beyond? >> well, it's a federal case. we're on thursday we will be
5:27 am
going to the fifth circuit federal court of appeals here in new orleans where the appeal by the state will be heard. i'm not sure where it's going to go after that. >> yeah. well, we should mention that we requested a statement from the louisiana state board of embalmers and funeral directors but they haven't replied. justin brown from saint joseph in louisiana. good luck on this. thank you for telling us your story. >> thank you very much. >> coming up on the show. take a look at this video. run away stroller you can imagine? headed straight for the street with a baby inside of it what happens next? we'll stick around for that former mike huckabee is here to weigh in on may's dismal job report. will this hurt the president heading into november? we will get him on the curvey couch and away from dave briggs. copd makes it hard to breathe,

5:37 am
job numbers are terrible. what makes it worse is that you have got to break this down to individual families. and so you know, when you look at the big picture, it's terrible. what is even worse is that there are a lot of americans who want to go to work and they can't and they don't have a job and they tried. that many millions more have just given up. they are not even looking anymore. i love what this president has done with the economy. >> you are referring to the unemployed and under employed who don't have the job they want. that number is 14.8% is it possible this is a brief hiccup? it could be. we have seen this every month. the economists have been wrong. every month they say exists are surprised. i have come to the conclusion economists have the only people in the world who can be wrong 100% of the time. >> they surpassed expectations a few months ago creating 275,000 jobs. that's not always under performing. >> well, but the economists had missed that. they were surprised it was this good. >> again, i just wanted to.
5:38 am
>> we have had a few good months but none of them good enough. here is the fact. you have got to have about 250,000 plus jobs a month just to stay even to keep up. and when you have numbers like these, they are just showing that we are slipping further behind. >> the obama administration yesterday coming out, i think about 64 minutes is all they took to come out and respond to this. and they are saying, look, this all started in 2007. >> of course. always bush's fault. >> the obama administration has stopped the great depression with the stimulus packages that the president put in place, that staved off that amount. we were able to create 4 million jobs. here's unemployment rate under president obama and from january 2009 to now 7.8% up to 8.2%. so, county president turn this around in six months? that's all we have now until the election. the american people go to vote. they go with their gut, they go with their feeling. is six months enough time for president obama to turn it around or is thin evident tillable moment for him? >> i don't think the economic numbers are going to improve
5:39 am
significantly enough. you are not going to see the unemployment rate go down below 8%. he promised it would never go above 8% if we spent the porkulous money. on the other hand that doesn't mean he won't be reelected. we are kidding ourselves to think this is going to be anything other than a raiser thin election. the election is not decided by all americans. it's decided by 10% of the voters in six states. that's what it is going to come down to. >> or could it be seven states, wisconsin? >> could be. >> now talking about new battle ground states. obviously focused on the governor scott walker recall election right now in wisconsin. in the unions, dwindling in that state and all of this union support. people saying look, i don't have the money and the resources right now to continue to be a member of this union because of the power that they don't seemingly have anymore. does this hurt president obama? >> its did. because the unions have historically been the manpower, particularly in the final days leading up to an election. they are the ground game. you know, the air war is one thing. all the ads and robo calls but the ground game is how democrats have traditionally won elections. and the ground game is
5:40 am
primarily carried out by the unions. you take them out of it and it's like taking the infantry out of a battleground. >> it's interesting though that bill clinton was up there in wisconsin on friday. president obama was all over it he was right next door in minnesota. he was in chicago. he is staying out of wisconsin. saying this is largely about local issues. most people you talk to say this has major national implications. what does it mean that obama isn't out there? >> let me tell you that from a political insider's point of view, the fact that the president has not parachuted in to come into there says that the polling, that the white house has, indicates that it is not looking good. the president cannot afford to put his reputation on the line going into wisconsin and having a loss. it's better for him to be a no show than a loser. so the reason that you see him getting nowhere near wisconsin is because they are not confident of the results. >> it's also interesting that union membership in wisconsin has apparently gone down. so in terms of this being a
5:41 am
battle criened a catalyst for people joining the unions, that's not happened. in fact, the second biggest union which is the american federation of state county municipal employees their membership numbers have stopped because they stopped the automatic deduction for the dues. >> there is a big difference when people join a union when they want to and people join a union because they have to. there are a lot of people that don't see what the union is doing for them other than making the union executives very rich and they get lots of perks. the workers their salaries don't get changed that much just because of the union that's why you have seen union membership nationally decline 1950s when 40% of the workforce was union down to 11% nationally today and the biggest part of the 11% is now public employee unions versus private sector manufacturing unions. >> much more on that at 9:15. a lt. governor from wisconsin rebekah clayfish will join us live to tell us what is the most important issue. she is also up for recall there. and the governor is sticking

69,000 created in may. the unemployment rate ticks up. economy grew at 1.9% we found out earlier in the week. tough to spin this as any sort of good news if you are the president. >> the president on the campaign trail basically saying congress has got to get the bills off their desk that i have sent to them. i have the middle class small business tax cut what are they doing they have to get these things taken care of. that is the way to get jobs back in the economy. the president sticking with that message this morning because a short time ago he released his radio' dress and echoed the same sentiments. take a listen. >> it is not lost on anybody that this is an election year. we have responsibilities that are bigger than an election. we have responsibilities to you. with so many people struggling to get by now is not the time to play politics and for congress to sit on its hands. the american people expect their leaders to work hard no

6:16 am
president clinton campaigning yesterday president obama has not been to wisconsin to weigh in on the race. how do you interpret that? >> well, given the fact that he was in minneapolis yesterday and chicago and we are kind of the gateway between the two cities and he strategically avoided stopping in wisconsin he think there is really no other message to read into that besides that he is avoiding associating himself with the maeor of milwaukee tom barrett our governor's opponent. >> president obama has said he stands lock step with the unions across the country when the battle was unfolding in the state of wisconsin and press clinton you heard him saying if governor scott walker and yourself are allowed to continue inor jobs that the state and country about be led on a da it i disasterrous courg rid of collective bargaining and the death of the unions. what do you say to that? >> this is not about unions.
6:17 am
this is about responsibility. i have two kids at home. when you as a parent and as a leader take a look at some of the cost drivers that are going to affect their futures regardless of who makes the tough decisions you have to analyze that and know that if you don't stand between them and those dangerous fiscal problems then they are going to have to deal with that themselves. we don't want to leave big huge fiscal messes for our children. you know, as responsible adults as responsible leaders as good moms and dads we needed to take care of those things and make the tough decisions and so when we saw $3.6 billion budget deficit we solved it without raising taxes. because you just can't raise taxes on hard working taxpayers in the middle of a recession. we listened to the families, the workers of wisconsin in 2010 and that is exactly what they told us and exactly what we did. we laid the groundwork for wisconsin and wiz and we have
6:18 am
have seen that growth. we created jobs last year and we will end up with the $154 million surplus at the end of the budget. >> this must be a nerve wracking weekend for you, though. the most recent polls from i believe marquette university do show scott walker the governor tabling the lead over his opponent mayor tom barrett 42% to 45%. what do you think is going to happen on tuesday? >> please don't misread the polls and everyone at home please don't stay home because just because the polls indicate that we are doing well and we are polling up doesn't mean that this race is not tightening every single day. there is a small strip of undecided voters and i believe we have a stack of facts unbeatable. we saved state and local taxpayers $1 billion. our reforms are working in a tidal wave saving taxpayers
6:19 am
money all over the state but that still doesn't mean that our opposition is not going to get out their vote so we need to get ours out, too. >> exactly. as you point out, still a lot of outrage and protests going on. and the ticket is interesting and what is going to be on the recall election is there any chance possible that the governor loses and you win or there are also four big senate seats up for grabs that perhaps a republican could lose and democrats could win control of the senate in wisconsin. not just a straight ticket vote, right? >> clayton, that is why it is so important that people get out and vote. you're right the governor and i were elected as a ticket in fall of 2010 about because of how our constitution was written and the recall function never changed when they changed but the governor and lieutenant governor were elected now we are being recalled separate le. a vote for walker is no longer a vote for walker kleefisch. we need to make sure we have partners in the executive
6:20 am
branch and not adversaries. we can't have him looking over his shoulder because wisconsin didn't realize that the governor and lieutenant governor were a separate vote. make sure you understand you have to vote for governor and lieutenant governor is down there, too, a and vote for our great senators because they are there and have your backs every single day saving taxpayers and hard working families money as we recover from the recession. >> we will be walking close le what happens on tuesday. thanks so much for coming in this morning. >> thanks so much for having me. >> and thanks so much. coming up on the show. better than changing the diapers. why a real man's place is in the kitchen. we are are heading outside. >> that does look good. >> make a man out of you yet. good morning! wow. want to start the day with something heart healthy and delicious?

perhaps you have seen this video. home owners lighting tap water on fire and blaming the practice of fracking as the cause. this is just one of the many examples that critics use to argue that fracking which involves extracting natural gas
6:47 am
from rock is dangerous. a new study out says otherwise according to the shale resources and society institute. they say the dangers have been exaggerated by environmental activists. joining us is the author of the study, the director of the center for energy economics at the university of wyoming. doctor, thank you for being here. >> good morning. >> let's talk about the scary things said about fracking and you can respond to them. the new york times did a very frightening piece back in november in which they went to one town in pennsylvania where fracking is commonplace and they say that they found residents who said that their farm animals and even the household pets had died suddenly after fracking came to town and one of the results that doctors found was liver toxicity. is that one of the dangers of fracking? >> well, in our recent study we looked at the records of
6:48 am
environmental violations and found that most of the violations were administrative in nature. only about a third involved environmental impacts. and of that third -- go ahead. >> well, one of the other things that the article claimed was that children in the area were testing positive for chemicals in their system including arsenic. did you find anything like that in your study? >> no, we did not. we didn't look at the specific health impacts. we looked at the effectiveness of regulation in controlling the occurrences of environmental impacts in gas drilling. >> meaning you looked at how often the epa was called? >> yes. specifically, the department of environmental protection in pennsylvania, we looked at the number of environmental violations and the occurrence of well blowouts and other
6:49 am
incidents in the gas fields. >> many so the residents while they didn't talk about well blowouts they talked about something we showed there on the other side of the screen which was the water runoff. the seenage that comes after fracking and that they believe that it has poisoned some of their drinking water. one of those things was proven to exist prior to fracking which was that they could light their tap water on fire. apparently they have been able to do that for decades even before fracking came to town. did you determine whether or not there are more chemicals now in their drinking water? >> no, we didn't specifically look at chemicals in drinking water. i must say, though, that there are many sources of natural gas in drinking water other than from shale deposits. there is shallow gas deposits, there is biogas that is generated from the decay of plant and vegetable matter and that gets into local water supplies.
6:50 am
>> so very quickly from your study do you believe that fracking is dangerous for the residents? >> i think overall what our study shows is that there are major impacts that occur but they are very small in number, less than 1% of all wells encounter such problems and that bottom line the impacts are manageable with good regulation and strict industry practice. >> okay. dr. timothy considine from the university of wyoming. thanks so much for joining us with your results. >> you're welcome. >> next, he is known as the turtle man for his amazing ability to capture snapping turtles with his bare hands. maybe he can teach us some of his snapper-licious skills. ♪ wild thing, you make my heart ♪ wild thing, you make my heart sing. ♪ you make everything
