2:00 pm
and tonight live, 8:00 p.m. eastern time. you will. loud and clear. the jolt from jail. three hours from now. >> eric: hello. i'm eric bolling, with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, dana perino, greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ proving night after night he has absolutely no idea how bad things are out there on main street and proving night after night he has no shame in misinforming middle america. ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. >> this notion that somehow we have caused the deficit is just wrong. it's just not true. if they start trying to give you a bunch of facts and figures, suggesting it's true.
2:01 pm
what they are not telling you is they baked all this stuff in the cake with those tax cu cuts. prescription drug plan they didn't pay for. so all of this stuff is baked in, with all the interest payments for it. it's like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all this stuff. then just as you are sitting down, they leave. and accuse you of running up the tab. >> eric: really? ignore the facts and figures? reality? let's not ignored the facts and figures. break them down inside. unlike approximatelytitions, mr. president, the numbers don't lie. take a look. president bush in 2008. average annual receipts outlays and deficit. look. about the same for both bush and obama. $2.2 trillion for bush. that means the taxes collected. $2.1 trillion for obama. next line, that is spending.
2:02 pm
$2.5 trillion per year for bush. good years and bad. $3.4 trillion for president obama. that bottom line right there, average annual deficit for president bush, $309 billion. $1.3 trillion for president obama. to make it a little more relatable to fat cats liberals like bob, joy and rosie, i broke it down using doughnuts. if each doughnut represents $10 billion. each one. here is what president bush racked up per year. here is what president obama racked up. per year. >> eric: bob, can you see the difference? here is the point. is president obama so arrogant to go on tv and say i'm not spending more than my predecessors? here is proof. here it is. >> bob: you say the numbers don't lie? let me see if i can't counter your numbers don't lie.
2:03 pm
congressional budget office which is the bipartisans democrat and republican. george bush handed off $1.3 trillion deficit to obama in 2009, just because the 2009 budget presented by bush administration. obama raised it by another, with a stimulus, $800 billion. but the idea that $300 billion is just absolutely made up. >> eric: you know what? put the full screen back up, please, producers. put a full screen back up. that includes every single dollar. it's pro-rated. we took the month, the january, we gave to president bush. when it was his. we gave it to president obama when it was his. >> bob: i am talking about the 2009 -- >> eric: that is in there. 2009, 2010, 2011. >> eric: i don't do as many billboards as you do. >> andrea: what bob is not explaining is it's an accounting boy, what the president is doing.
2:04 pm
he passed the second half of tarp. he saved the economy, how? one thing was tarp. but he kept accounting levels the same as 2009. he kept those bush levels. but he doesn't want to omit that. we're not supposed to say the president lies. oh boy, that will light up the blogs so i'll say he is misrepresenting the truth there. you go. >> eric: this is what is misrepresent -- >> bob: this is misrepresenting the truth. >> eric: every one of your stimulus plan, president bush's stimulus, everything, right here. that shows a difference. >> eric: 1.19 trillion -- i accounted for that. >> bob: i'm just saying that what obama got. >> dana: the thing about, you guys are, you're getting into a debate a lot of people haven't gotten. they don't get in details as much. they sit around the kitchen table and think think the government spend too much at large, they think bush spent too much and obama spent more and what to know at what point
2:05 pm
will the government do something about it and stop piling up doughnuts. what i thought about is the dig about steaks and martinis, as if it would have been better if they ordered arugula salad with candy walnuts and white twine spritzer. >> andrea: organic, too. >> dana: no question! he would do himself favors and see the poll numbers rise if he said yeah, we had to spend money because there is a lot of things on the plate. i had to put in money to help bail-out the auto companies. coming back. here is what i'm going to do. that would be responsible. >> eric: he can eat tall $10 billion doughnuts he wants. >> dana: trying to make obama's pile go down. >> eric: eat bushes. >> dana: eat them as fast as you can. >> greg: here is the deal. i am going to throw up. okay? i am just going to throw up. >> andrea: right now? >> greg: the doughnut holes is too much. here is the thing. this speaks to obama's lack of a strategy.
2:06 pm
all he can do, he cannot look forward. all he can do is look backward. if you look at the strategy in 2008, it was to undo the damage of george bush. so my suggestion is to do the same strategy, but replace bush's name with me. just go elect me, re-elect me to undo the damage i've done for the last four years. clearly that worked before. >> dana: good idea. >> eric: we think -- or i think dems are in panic mode. listen to true blue liberals like james carville. it sounds like he is panicking. >> i'm worried when the white house or the campaign talks about the progress made, people take it as a signal, they think things are fine. people don't feel or believe that. >> eric: take a look at the full screen. this is independent voters trust of president obama on the economy. telling there. unfavorable, 54% favorable. 30%. >> andrea: he has been doing
2:07 pm
interviews with the local reporters on the stump. he talks about the same thing he pushes forward. energy subsidiaries. why would you go to energy subsidiaries after solyndra and sun power even when the "new york times" said it's a bunch of boondoggles. here is my thing. he said once that the buck stops with him. the president did. i think that when you shift blame and you shift blame and you shift blame, it makes it look like you don't have the answers. they don't elect a leader and they want him to lead. you say it's not your responsibility, it's made the president look so out of control. he would be better off taking the heat. if you take the heat it looks like your hands are on the wheel instead of a backseat driver. that's what he looks like. >> bob: that is a good point. he should take some of the heat for sure. the idea -- is it clear to me now that you don't want alternative energy out of the united states government? >> dana: what? >> eric: can we not go there? the question was are the dems panicking and are the independents breaking for mitt romney?
2:08 pm
>> bob: no. >> eric: you deny this completely? >> bob: romney numbers are also negative. >> not as much as the president. gest he is the front runner. >> greg: i was going to say if you listen to president obama like he inherited more defects than offspring of koligula. he has to take responsibility. the press is spinning him as unflappable. if there is criticism, he is unflappable. maybe he should be flappable. maybe we're at a time where you should be flapping. things aren't going well. stop being unflappable. be flappable. >> eric: if president obama thinks he was left holding the tab on really big bill, what is he going to leave either president romney or the next guy whoever it may be? >> dana: to take the metaphor a step further, before the bill came you ordered another entree, two appetizers, drinks and a round on the house. you get the bill and go oh, my
2:09 pm
gosh. i'll leave this for the next guy. on the entitlement front, tax reform, i do think it's both of them, need a fair plan where you are going forward. people in america are willing to forgive the past mistake if you show a path forward to make it better in their minds. they just don't see it yet. the most often used adjective to use president obama's speech tomorrow about the economy is well-worn. >> bob: there better be something new in the speech tomorrow. every day i defend this and i feel like the only fire hydrant at the westminster dog show. >> andrea: that is what is going on. you're admitting -- >> bob: no. i take dana's view of this. take him off the air for a little while. >> eric: i want to get to this. the advanced leak is there is nothing new. but there are leaks and that's continuing a bad june for
2:10 pm
obama administration. remember when president obama said this? >> the notion that my white house would purposefully release classified national security information is offensive. it's wrong. >> eric: dana, you picked this out as he was saying it. "my white house." >> dana: it rubs people the wrong way. i know what he meant, my staff, i'd never allow my staff to have done that. it has gone too far. there are leaks on national security issue versus strategic plan to shape a story before the speech tomorrow. these are different. they are so concerned three months later and after a press conference from bipartisan members on capitol hill that's when they asked eric holder the point. >> bob: you're right. maybe the use of "my white house" was not right but my guess is every president used
2:11 pm
it. the idea it leaked out of the white house out of obama and that peter king his office contacted me, very nice. i still think you are close to treason by -- >> greg: i got to say, i'm offended. barack obama is offended. how dumb does he think we are? saying -- it's a deniable, it's a deflection. you can say that. if a leak from a specific person you think they leaked it. >> bob: you're suggesting that the president of the united states highly classified -- >> greg: i'm suggesting it could have come from the white house. his white house. >> andrea: i think it sums up the contrasts. anything bad is not my problem. everything else, my leaks, not my leaks, my white house. my kill list. my everything. >> coming up, mitt romney's plan for the first 100 days in

2:17 pm
budget. >> andrea: dana, what do you think of these proposals by romney? message simplicity is a good way to go. those are very unpopular. >> dana: a lot of them -- i thought policies were admirable. smart timing. the graphics department at the republican campaigns have gotten a lot better. that was really, really good. i also think in reading it, a lot of it is -- all of it is easier said than done. you could look to, as president obama campaigned on closing gitmo. that was the first thing to, do roll back the bush era tax cuts. you end up getting in the oval office and realize this isn't as easy as i thought. two things to mention. one thing he mentioned is keystone pipeline. some democrats think nobody paid attention to what that is. people are paying attention and they want that. the policy has to be bigger and broader. the other thing that will be difficult to do is when he says stand up to china's unfair trade practices.
2:18 pm
you get in there, and you find out there is not a lot that can be done unless you have to full weight of the world behind you. first 100 days i don't know if you get that. >> andrea: is he boxing himself in that is something we discussed, manage of expectations, that president obama made the plans. 100 days is not a lot of time. >> greg: the bigger question is how the media will treat this and how the dems will treat this. they will laugh at this. this is actually a list of actions. a list of actions -- >> bob: is it is? >> greg: yes. regulation reform, tax reform, pipeline. getting rid of obamacare. that is a list of actions. as bob has shown, list of actions are boring. not like a cool slogan. it's not like julia or forward or are we still the ones we're waiting for? >> andrea: what about the fierce urgency of now? whatever happened to that. >> greg: exactly. this is actually a to-do list. how boring. >> bob: not boring. free trade, that's bold.
2:19 pm
you call that bold. unintelligible and it's the same -- can i point out one thing about the ridiculous speech he gave yesterday. show the american people except they want to pay attention to this guy is beyond belief. here is what he said. in the bold plan there was that he was going to leave everything alone. everything, defense left alope and going to cut discretionary spending. that is a big brave move. you pick out with mitt romney who hasn't had the guts to say what he would cut. but show what is in the list. talk about it. one of eric's favorite things, food stamps, nasa, space con set. >> andrea: obama cut that. >> bob: excuse me. center for disease control. can i finish this? >> andrea: sorry. >> bob: national ocean atmosphere administration. i still can't see this. >> eric: faa. wish and wildlife. >> bob: he says 5% across

the board, literally shut most down. ask romney how he will do that. how to cut from the discretion anywhere budget and did he mention one thing about how to create jobs? no. he would cut taxes to increase deficit. a full scale from a foolish position. not very smart. >> andrea: moving off the coal is a good -- removing obstacles is a plan. removing obstacle. regulations. i want you to react to polls recently. it seems like romney has the right strategy, he is focusing on the economy. who would be better to improve the economy, romney 46. obama 39. another one, who would do a better job at cutting spending? bob, i know you think that some of the bloated programs shouldn't cut 5. 1-31 -- 51-31. who would be better to handal healthcare? 43/40%. romney is a little down on that. >> eric: what we didn't play, hoping to get to that, mitt romney addressed what he would do with obamacare.
2:21 pm
repeal obamacare. more importantly, bob, he said what he would do from is there an he would send it to the states and let the states handle their own -- >> bob: using medicare, using medicaid. did you look to what he stayed in listen to what he said. >> eric: can we play it? >> bob: how does he do away with it, first. >> andrea: take a listen. >> the president at a time when the supreme court left obamacare in place. i'll repeal it on day one by sending out a waiver to all 50 states to keep them from having to pursue obamacare. >> we can get healthcare to act more like a consumer market. if we do that, and we stop making it like a big government mandate, we're going to see better prices, lower cost and better care. it's happened everywhere we tried with to apply consumer market principles. free enterprise, it works and we need to apply it to healthcare. >> in a minute or so, romney just took a major democratic
