responsibility. it is false. the problems with the president are acknowledging that he left out the part where he sits down and order steak for the next thousand days. >> chris: >> steve: days and years. mitt romney got a good report on the super pac. who gave millions to newt newt gingrich gave 10s of millions to the super pac. >> brian: it had nothing to do with what happened in wisconsin. they didn't want to get involved in other advocate causes. there is a link between the two . trump is on the docket looking to reduce support for the democratic movement and launch a labor movement. >> gretchin: it will be
interesting to see what happened. people who visit the president is the people from the union. will they back the republican candidate? stay tuned for that. and in the meantime? >> brian: if the unions are not happy with president obama they will not be happy with anyone. i think the president is taking a brutal beating because he stood by the beatings >> steve: soand so now we will not back so many. and not the party designation. but they say there is a policy, they could start in the u.s. and news and world report, they could start supporting some independents. stand by for that. >> gretchin: how does the world feel about what is going on in america? look at the chart for approval ratings from president obama. you can see europe in general
likes us less by 15 percent. muslim countries like us a lot less. remember all of the outreach when the president went to cairo. >> brian: they like him 63 percent. but dropped in the muslim countries. they don't like the drone attacks . russia bad as you would think and china at 30%. i go back to tony blair said america's greatest fault they want to be liked. no one liked being the number one guy. what your intention is. people will find fault with america because we are great. >> steve: they find fault, the balance of the world does with the drone strikes . the preferred method that the united states president does. gretch those polls were on the
down side before the drone happened. there is something else going on there as well. look at the game, using the head of who in the scone of a beed hading. it was the closest prop they had. look at the picture and see if you can figure out who it is. >> brian: it is hedge rolling around. >> gretchin: it is a different hair do. george w. bush his head was the first available for the beheading. >> steve: one of the show runners if you look at the stuff said "george bush's head appears in a couple of beed handwriting. it is not a choice or political statement. we used the period and his head was right there. since that hit the fan, there is a statement. hbo issued a statement. we are dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable and

president obama this year? out of all of the posts and liberal messaging and famous for trying to take down fox news and bring rush limbaugh down. 60 percent of the posts in defense of bark obama during the election year . now compare to a nonelection year last year. going back to the same time frame, it is only 39 percent that is a big increase. that is a big deal for an organization that claims to be tax exempt and not allowed to campaign for a particular candidate. >> steve: you brought up the tax depempt status . we have one of the rules here tax exempt organization can't attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of the activitis and not participate in campaign activities or against political candidates.
you are looking in the numbers it looks as if thea - they are campaigning and defending the president of the united states at every turn. >> this looks like barack obama's second website. clearlies -- clearly it amounts to. and media matter system defending the president . every single week as the president presents new challenges. the presidencies a lot of challenges in the next several weeks. every time that answers, media matters answers the all. they come out and run cover for the president and attack media outlets and what they are trying to do is show the president is right everyone else is wrong. >> steve: the ironic thing is they didn't senator obama in
2008. he was a supporter of hillary clinton. >> that's right a former staff writer told me that that identity with hillary clinton influenced the entire organization. they were writing 63 percent of the copy about hillary clinton to defend her and not bark obama until obama was clearly going to have the nomination. barack and matters are workg and that same writer said the back up of the land recovery was covered with hillary clinton stickers. >> steve: i wonder if he has bumper stickers this season. thank you, vince. >> thank you. >> steve: 20 minutes until the top of the hour. and he found gold coins lying around on the ground. is it finder keepers, the

white house, he comes back in eight wheelchair. grest gretch you can see the progression of age. you chose to do it in first person . president bush is a man of few words. why was it important for him to be the solo voice. >> you can pick up and dvd and you can find any program about any president, political people. and they throw everybody in there. and we had the opportunity to to have him tell it in his words. >> gretchin: i want to show another clip. he rarely said anything bad about anybody. but in this clip. what he thinks about ross perot. >> defeat clinton in clinton did a great job of campaigning on, i didn't get it and i was out of touch and i don't want to sound like i am bashing the
press. and they were for him and that makes a huge difference. >> can you tell me about ross perot? >> no. i think he cost me the election and i don't like him. >> gretchin: you are asking the question and were you surprised. >> i can't talk about him. he said becomely everything. >> gretchin: that he was upset with him. that was one of the mostant times interview for you in >> i think it was. it was short and raw emotion from him. >> gretchin: the other interesting thing about the film. you were surprised he agreed to do it, right? >> yes, the first film was the oner of it all . the astronauts on the moon. and they hosted a screening in college station with eight apollo astronauts and we walked out and thinking we
would never see him again. and we were invited to maine. we thought it a fascinating story to tell. and of course, we asked and we were told that you know, no, he will not do it and very soon i received an e-mail back that said he was intrigued and six weeks later we start shooting. >> gretchin: it is a fascinating look at george bush 41. it is tonight at 9:00 p.m. thank you for your time. >> thank you for having me. >> gretchin: coming up on "fox and friends". kids will be playing under new strict guidelines. is it a scam or a protective thing they need? you will hear both sides. this is incredible. thieves trying to break in while the truck is flying down the highway.

to implementt dodd-frarving. i was tired of the banks acting like this with our money. and it will be affective i and i encouraged the administration not only to do what we asked them to do when we passed the bill. i am glad he was there. but i think it will send a real message and take away the bonus money. >> steve: you are in a real tight race right now and you are up over elizabeth warren by 13 percent. she would like your job. she tried to tie you to what is going on in j.p. morgan. listen to this. >> my opponent scott brown who is named one of wall street favorite senators has been out there negotiating in secret to try to weaken the rules and delay the rules and try to create the loop holes in the rules and in other words those guys made it clear to wall
street, if you elect them, they promise to stand with wall street all the way. >> steve: is that what you have been up to in >> it is funny, when you are running for high elective office. you have to pass a test and it is about truthful credibility and honesty and she's failed that test as evidence by her claiming to be a native american and making misrepresentation not only to harvard and penn. it is no different here. she can rewrite her own history but not rewrite mine. i was the deciding vote and proud to be so. she was on the whoit white lawnn saying it is the strongest bill. i am not sure what change would she failed that test. >> gretchin: it is interesting how she is criticizing that. your stance on this is maybe against what republicans would feel about it. yes, and so my question to
you. did you have the question because of being in a state of massachusetts as a republican you have to have independent views. >> i am the second most bipartisan. i vote 54 percent with party. everyone else is 97 or above. i have been in the white house with my insider trading bill and i was honored to be in the rose garden when he signed that. my proud funding bill and allows start ups and businesses to raise millions on line. this election is about the economy, jobs in the economy, and i am not going to raise taxes. i want to address our debt. and i am not a jobs destroyer like professor warren want to be. we need to focus on the issues that matter. every class. i have worked since i am here and many years.
>> brian: you are talking about the political career and a lot of people want to know more about you. there is an ad talking about you like a mr. mom. your wife is doing a morning show and leaves out at 1:30 . what do you do when you have two daughters in the house. >> i do whatever you do. let's get ready and i let them go in the room and they are mismatched and i go like this and put their hair in a scrunch yecome down looking like pebbleles. we are a team and gail is very obviously being married 26 years and the kids there are the most important thing in my life . i am so thankful to have their support. >> steve: that is nice, your wife doing a morning show assignment. she gets up to go to work at 1:30 and that means everybody has to be quiet from 6:00 on. >> you all know that. >> gretchin: i know it
exactly. >> steve: what is your father's day plan? >> i am doing a triathlon in the morning and gail and nailer is coming and we'll spend time . i will go see my dad that he's battling parkinson and do a parade and spend time with the family. and the me time. >> gretchin: look at you. you know your wife is watching . you are talking about a honey do list. >> brian: you are going to run the triathlone. that's the easiest. >> steve: senator scott brown in the midst of a tough race. we thank you for joining us. >> go to scott brown.comto learn more. >> gretchin: we asked elizabeth war tone appear on the program with scott brown and she declined. is it time it change the message with a fair and balanced debate. >> brian: take me out to the
well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. woman: what do you mean, homeowners insurance doesn't cover floods? [ heart rate increases ] man: a few inches of water caused all this? [ heart rate increases ] woman #2: but i don't even live near the water. what you don't know about flood insurance may shock you -- including the fact that a preferred risk policy starts as low as $129 a year.
for an agent, call the number that appears on your screen. eye the economy is improving and he got free advice for big name demdeps who say quit talking about the economy. voters are not buying it and so should he change his message? we have both here and dressed nice and deserved to be talked to both on the five and other things. first of all, the president is geting a message from james
carvel. don't pretend like everything is good. should he take it forward. >> got to make it clear he understands what people are experiencing. people are anxious about the economy and future. i think the carvel message is important. if the president thought he could say. yes, the private sector is doing fine, it doesn't necessarily trandsalate with most people on the ground who go to the grocery store and gas station and worried about can their kid get a job. >> brian: the economy not good all fingers point to him is that trouble. >> i do glea he - agree that he needs to look. he hinted about what he would do in the second term. it is at same policy as last term. he talked about energy and solor and wind . he has to get off of that especially when you look add
fail of solyndra . more he blames and looks like he is devoid of worries and he is a weak letter. when president bush took responsibility but he had his hand on the wheel. >> you have monitors. 1994, david axelrod upset that bush 41 talked about progress in a bad economy. let's listen. >> you cite the statistics that the economy is do improve being. you do damage to yourself and you are frustrating the alienated class more. >> brian: he should take his own advice, juan? >> you have to provide context. people are smart . we are going through something different than the '91 reseddings. it is serious. we had a report from the fed about the amount of wealth that families have lost.
i think everybody understands that the reseddings - recession had a bad on our lives. i president obama is talking about it. >> more blame. that axelrod sounds perfect. the same thing happened to president bush. at least bush 41 said things are starting to get better. but they are painting him as out of touch. if the president is fine. he will have the same problem as 41 did in the supermarket. they accused him being out of touch. >> brian: you write about that in the daily news. one thing i find that is intriguing about it seems like democrats and republicans and authors agree. it is impossible to penetrate the president's inner sanctum.
high profile democrats can't get there. >> steve: i don't have hear. that is a fact. you look at the people who are around and they go back to chicago days of the initial campaign and they are a cliche. and people who earn their way in his confidence and he has a small of people who trust each other . the message came lieu. there was a bad few weeks, but they don't trust new comers and i think that is why the message was sent so publicly and president clinton sent it publicly. and why axelrod is on the stump. >> brian: it is a nasinating discussion. thanks for having me. >> you are part of the inner circle,ibly an. >> brian: bristal palin like
could cause an engine to go back. 365,000. that is how much less fenail doctors compared to male could you wanter parts . rhode island is the latest to give smokers the green light. >> gretchin: time for a fraud alert. people in the video look healthy and active adultings, right. they all prevously file would personal injury suits and it is a growing problem. over 2000 works comp cases were deemed punishable. >> steve: johnn, i have seen that guy collected so many hundreds of thousand of dollars and ably body. >> it is great when they caught them.
he can't move his left arm . he's collecting disability payments. these systems are good for people who are hurt. but we are teaching people to fake it and good that the cameras get smaller now. >> steve: what do we learn? >> don't cheat. you will get caught. >> gretchin: i have done manage on the o'reilly show. disability claims sky rocketed in the last couple of years. it is a certain culture. >> if your neighbor is collecting and certain neighborhoods you feel like a sucker. chamber of commerce thinks 25 percent of them are false. >> steve: you have to find an attorney to represent them. >> a lot of attorneys don't ask. they don't want to tick off the client. >> gretchin: you are blaming the attorneys.
and not the people doing the problem. >> that's the lawsuit abuse. i sued the pro wrestling federation and world wrestling foundation they had me beaten up because i talked about how pro wrestling is fake. i think you have a clip. what a experience. why is it a good experience. only the tough survive and that's why you ain't in it and the punk holding the cament ra. it is a tough business. >> that's terrific. >> is that all you got. >> i think it is a fake. >> you continuing is fake. what is that. is that fake. what the hell is wropping with you. >> it cost that guy $300. >> i had ear pain from that and went to doctors, and their
doctor said you have a a illness. what is that. you are holding on to your pain if you are willfuled in the lawsuit. how can you say that without examining me. when i got the settlement. the pain gradually went away. >> gretchin: are you glad you filed or not. >> yeah, they should be taught a lesson. >> steve: did you have $300,000 worth of pain and suffering. >> i had two years of pain. you can determine that. the lawyer gets $180,000. i am a hypocrite because i critize the suit? >> brian: that second hit was harder than the first. no, he is 6-8 280 pounds. >> gretchin: and in his underwear. >> steve: and i am thinking
about it. >> brian: how long did it take. >> four years. the pain is gone now. >> steve: are you frens these days. >> no. >> steve: did you see what he did to him. >> gretchin: coming occupy "fox and friends". game of thropes. you know who that is. producer's turn george bush's head in a political prop. >> brian: they say it was a mistake. >> take mow out for the ballgame and a proposal to leave me speechless. not the mets, they don't get trophies. ♪

>> steve: welcome back. a private company explaining a move that cost that private company bank a big chunk of money. the senate has not called on hearing to investigate failure of companies like solyndra that could leave the federal government on the hook for half billion. is the lesson to americans that it is safer to risk taxpayer money than their own. stewart barney is shaking his head. >> i think jamie dimon turned the tables on the senate banking committee. he went in there and the senators were trying to get him and saying we need more regulation or support for president obama's bank regution. instead he apologize took full responsibility for the loss and contrite and turned the tables on the senators. why don't you get your fiscal house in order and what a mess you have create unmentioned
were the whole idea that you should lookk closely at the people responsible for solyndra which a loss of taxpayer's money as opposed to the loss of jorg jorg. >> steve: we are talking about j.p. morgan-chase losing two or three billion . one of the panelist said we lose that every day in the u.s. government and so it is not surprising. what is surprising is that the political theater and it what is going on. they have had all of these senators grilling him and yet taking money from the financial industry at the same time. charles schumer senator for new york voted for dodd-frank and had had received millions and bob corker. he voted against dodd-received 3.4 million from the financial industry. >> steve: you have a team of people grilling jamie dimon
and most of whom had taken millions from the financial service industry . you have the financial reform legislation . we have got that already in my bank. we have literally hundreds of regulators inside of the bank on a daily basis and they didn't spot the two million loss problem. >> steve: the senate is controlled by demdeps and the president of the united states wants to blame the banks for part of the pickle we are in right now . he's running for reelection . he needs jamie dimon in the hot seat. >> steve: he was not. he turned thes and essentially in the end of the day he won and democrats in the front who wanted beat up on the banks because of the loss, i think they lost are. >> they will take their money. >> they will. >> steve: we'll watch your program that kicks off in 90 minutes from now . >> thank you, steve.

see him dance. >> gretchin: i know the feeling as a mother of a son as well what about your blog. it seems that some of it faith-base you refer to bible verses . what role does it have? >> it is a huge impact on my life and my compass and guides the decigs i make and the root of myself and my family. >> gretchin: best of luck to you. premiers on lifetime. bristol palin life is a trip. good luck with it. >> thank you so much . >> brian: next on the government's list to get hand outs. arab-americans called a socially disadvantaged group. and how do you rebuild after you lost everything? answer that homeowners need to hear only on "fox and friends". we'll be right back. hmm, it says here that cheerios helps lower cholesterol
>> gretchen: good morning, everyone. today is thursday, june 14, 2012. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing your time with us today. today president obama tries to reboot his message with the voters that the economy is getting better. but his senior campaign advisor didn't think that was such a good idea back in 1994. >> these statistics that say the economy is improving, you almost do political damage to yourself. >> steve: the new numbers that show david axelrod may have been right the first time. >> steve: speak of turning the tables, word is there are republicans rallying to keep parts of obamacare. what's that about? we'll talk to michelle malkin about that promptly. >> brian: doctor said he'd never walk again. then this. wait 'til you hear how he prove evidence all of them wrong. the story might give you goose
bumps. it does me. "fox & friends" starts right now. i'm tingling. >> gretchen: that looks like fine. remember the good old days when we were kids? back then it was probably more dangerous than now. we're going to be giving you some safety tips 'cause now they have the nets in there. >> steve: the key to these is in addition to the nets, is the fact that traditionally you got the springs that extend outward. these springs are actually underneath so you don't get stuck. >> brian: we have the double one and actually spent more money for it because they said it's better on your niece. it's the best thing --
hypothetically, let's say i had one, the best thing we ever did. all the ages, they've always jumped on the trampoline and then we got the basketball net for it. so they will be exercising. >> steve: don't your kids know they're supposed to be in the house watching tv playing video games? >> brian: they don't listen to me, steve. and i want a new kid by friday. >> gretchen: do they jump together? >> brian: yes, that's troublesome. because the nine-year-old gets catapulted into the netting. >> gretchen: what we learn today is you're supposed to jump solo. >> steve: today is flag day. we're celebrating that, and it was on this date back in june 14, 1775 that the continental army got started and today and this week, the u.s. army celebrating their 357th anniversary. happy anniversary, folks. >> brian: yeah, the army is the oldest service who fought to establish the nation, as you know. without the army, we don't win. >> steve: good day for a camouflage cake. >> gretchen: sounds good. let's get your headlines.
a developing story, air force cv helicopter crashed during a training mission, injuring all four crew members in florida. the crew taken to an area hospital. their conditions not being released at this time. the osprey flies like an airplane, but lands like a helicopter. the cause of the crash is under investigation. we're getting a look at brand-new video of an suv that slammed right into a house on new york's long island. you can see only the back half of it sticking out of the side of the house. we're told at least one person was hurt, taken to the hospital. no word yet on what caused that crash. >> steve: looks like the bedroom. >> brian: that's trouble. >> gretchen: lance armstrong, in jeopardy now. the anti-doping agency planning to file charges against him. agency says he used performance enhancing drug, as well as blood transfusions, testosterone and masking agents. in a statement, he says this: these are the same charges and the same witnesses that the justice department chose not to
pursue after a two-year investigation. i have never doped and unlike many of my accusers, i have competed as an endurance athlete for 25 years with no spike in performance, passed more than 500 drug tests and never failed one. doctors told him he'd never walk again. a california teen proving them wrong at his high school graduation. patrick, paralyzed from the neck down since he was struck bay car nearly 18 years ago. with the help of a custom made walker and six hours a day in physical therapy, he beat the odds. >> it was honestly like one of the best days of my lifement maybe like do jumping jacks at college graduation or something like that. i don't know. >> gretchen: that's not all he's proud of. he also graduated with a 4.0
grade point average and will attend usc in the fall. congratulations. >> steve: that's great. >> brian: meanwhile, president obama and mitt romney will be trading jabs on the economy today. that's just a hunch, but because they have dueling speeches and both want the same job. wendell goler live at the white house. >> they will both be in must win ohio today. mr. obama in cleveland. romney in cincinnati. the president aims to make the case that the election is about two different economic prescriptions for the country and romney will insist it's about changing an economic policy that has failed. the two men battling for independents' votes. a poll suggests more independents view both of their economic policies unfavorly, though they have stronger views about the president's policies. earlier this week, mr. obama argued that romney's policies have been tried and failed. >> they don't have any new ideas.
i am telling you, i want you all to pay attention over the next five months and see if they're offering a a single thing that they did not try when they were in charge because you won't see it. it will be the same stuff, the same oaky dock. >> the president is trying to tie mitt romney to president bush, while mr. romney is trying to tie mr. obama to the struggling economy with the idea he doesn't know how it fix it. yesterday romney looked ahead to today's speech by the president. >> his rhetoric will be soaring and eloquent, but i'd suggest a look at the record more than the words. the policies he would take are very different than the ones i described. without question, he will stifle our energy resources in coal, natural gas, and oil. he will, of course, implement obamacare, including -- i think you're going to see more and more coverage mandates, meaning more items have to be included
in policies and that will make them much more expensive. >> strategists in both parties consider ohio's 18 electoral votes to be critical. no republican in modern times has won the white house without those votes. >> gretchen: thanks very much. >> steve: let's go out to colorado springs right now, joining us on this thursday as she did every thursday, there is michelle malkin. good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. >> steve: we're hearing a lot from david axelrod these days. he's the number one guy who is -- whose job is to get the president four more universities am it's interesting, we got into the way back machine and found a sound bite of him back in 1994 where essentially he was criticizing george w. bush for talking up a bad economy, saying it frustrates the middle class. here is mr. axelrod with darker hair. >> one of the interesting things about this is that as you cite these statistics that say the economy is improving, you almost do political damage to yourself. if you stand up and claim great
progress, you're only frustrating this alienated middle class more. that was the key. >> steve: michelle, he also went ton say and bush was always talking about the economy. this from an advisor whose president finished 100 rounds of golf so far? >> yeah. that's right. well, i think his mustache has bent over the years and his common sense examine wisdom, it's sort of like the reverse aging process where he loses wisdom with age. and i think the parallels to the bushes are interesting because of course back in the late '80s and 1990s, the democrats and strategist likes david axelrod were casting the bushes as imperial presidencies and now, david axelrod works for one. it's not just the gall thing and the incessant vacations and fund-raisers. it's surrounding himself with
elites like george clooney and sarah jessica parker, at the same time he wags his fingers at the republicans for being out of touch. classic. i love this. let's have more retro david axelrod. >> gretchen: let's go to a new survey that came out. there is another one that says actually independents are not going to be going so much for obama as they did last time around potentially u about this one is about what the world thinks about him. the world seems to have dropped by 30% when you look at european countries and china and russia and japan, what do you make of that. >> well, clearly the global apology tours that obama has conducted over the last three, 3 1/2 years have not worked. but i'd have to say that if you look closer at these poll numbers, a lot of the animosity comes from the same places that have always detested and despised us and these are dictators, dictatorships and places in the middle east that do not appreciate america's role in defending freedom in the
world. and the things that obama has done that have alienated the world are the things that bush did in the war on terror. these are things like the drone strikes and, of course, keeping gitmo open after he refused to listen to barak obama refused to listen to eric holder. i think it teaches you a lesson that defending america does not win popularity contests. >> brian: and never will. let's talk about this, any day now we could be finding out -- we know sometime in june the supreme court will rule whether obamacare's mandate is constitutional or not. you believe republicans, some of them are pushing for obamacare to stay put. >> unfortunately, it's not just a belief. it is the reality. you have republican senators like roy blunt who have come out foursquare in favor of preserving what he believes to be the most quote, unquote, popular provisions of the obamacare mandate. i'm talking about things like the slacker mandate that forces
insurers to put kids up to the age of 26 on plans. this is the heart of the coercion of socialized medicine and yet here you have these big government republicans who once were full of full repeal of obamacare making noises about keeping them. who needs enemies when you have these people making noises like this? this comes at a time when there are new studies showing that of course the slacker mandate has increased premiums and when you increase premiums, you kick hundreds of thousands of people off of insurance coverage every year. >> steve: one other thing i know you've been following, the commerce department now apparently considering naming arab-americans socially and economically disadvantaged minority group so they would be eligible for handouts. >> yeah. this kind of commerce department preferential treatment program has been in place for decades. if you look at the list, the real question is, who doesn't
qualify as a disadvantaged minority anymore? i think it's also worth pointing out that if you look at census and economic data, arab-americans happen to be among the wealthiest of minority populations in the country and the most well educated. in other words, the least deserving of this kind of pandering treatment. i think it's just bottom line commerce department uses these programs to politically redistribute wealth. >> steve: not surprising. >> gretchen: michelle, calls great to see you. have a great weekend. we'll see you next week. >> brian: straight ahead, take a close look at your tv screen of the closer. even closer. those are thieves you see trying to break into the truck as it's flying down the highway. >> steve: nerves of steel. then first the banking crisis. then the foreclosure crisis. now the debt crisis. after all this, how can you begin to rebuild the american dream? real estate guru bob massi here with an answer live from vegas [ male announcer ] what's in your energy drink?

>> gretchen: so many americans have been hit with what we're calling a triple whammy. the banking crisis, the foreclosure crisis, and now the debt crisis. but you can turn it around and rebuild your future. just ask fox news legal analyst bob massy. good morning to you, bob. >> good morning. >> gretchen: you always see the silver lining, at least you try to. how do you see the silver lining in this latest ap wire crossing about foreclosure data? apparently home option notices and homes receiving default rose 12% from april and increased 16% versus may last year. what does that mean? >> well, what has happened, as we covered in the last year and a half or more, all the
deficiencies deficiencies deficiencies and foreclosures, they're starting to get their affairs in order, so the lenders who have been sitting on inventory because of all the different things that they know were done illegally and otherwise, they're now gearing back up to take their homes back. so that's basically where these statistics are going. there is also other factors, but that's the primary things. they recognize they did things they shouldn't have done. they've been sanctioned for it. $25 billion settlement that came out in march. now they're gearing back up. the interesting part about this is remember, it cost lenders quite a bit of money tougher close and so they're going to have to maintain these properties. but homeowners are going to be faced with losing more homes because they're gearing back up to foreclose on properties. >> gretchen: so we had that triple whammy i allude to. the foreclosure, banking crisis, now the debt crisis. so what questions should we be asking ourselves to begin to try to rebuild and see that silver
lining? >> you know, in rebuild, there are dreams from the shattered dreams. one of the things i want our viewers to understand is to try to put things in perspective. it's been very tough times in america. in the last 3 1/2 to four years. but let's remember, god willing, if we're healthy and the kids are healthy, then that's the most important thing in our lives. we can rebuild and remember, you are the home. the family is the home. it's a house. we can rebuild from that. one of the things i want to stress to our viewers, that we're going to be talking about in weeks to come other areas that affect us from the real estate crisis. but how to sort of put these pieces of the puzzle back together and god willing, we'll be able to show them some good tips in the future to help them. >> gretchen: all right. so if people are out there and they're look for this kind of guidance to set the path for recovery, where do they go? >> you know, gretchen, more than
ever before, just like the old family doctor, if you will, people really need more professional advice than ever before. i cannot stress to our viewers enough, find a lawyer that is competent, that's lived long enough to go through crisis in their life and seeing things. and if nothing else, just go talk to professionals to try to help put their affairs in order. what are the things that they need to do? that will be some of the things we're talking about in rebuilding your dreams. these are some of the steppingstones to start rebuilding, but they have a competent professional that could sit down and say okay. this is what's happened. you had to file bankruptcy. you do have this credit card debt. you did lose your house. okay, guys. this is what we're going to do. it's inexpensive to do these type of things with a professional now because of the fact that you can start rebuilding. you don't have to spend a lot of money on a lawyer to be able to get this type of advice. i can't urge our viewers enough
to find somebody capable in your area to help you with that. >> gretchen: all right. great advice and we hope you can help a bunch of folks. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> gretchen: you can e-mail bob your questions by logging on to our web site. click2houston.comer on the shattered dreams icon. coming up on "fox & friends," give a homeless a puppy and that will keep them off the streets? i guess the homeless person. details on this controversial new plan straight ahead. and then, who should investigate the white house over security leaks? they say eric holder and his men and women are just fine of the but can they really be trusted? republican senator chambliss joins us next with his thoughts ♪
>> steve: quick headlines. president obama wants brett mckirk to be the next u.s. ambassador to iraq. that's not sitting well with six republican senators. lawmakers asking for the nomination to be withdrawn because they're concerned about mckirk's leadership abilities and experience. white house is standing by the nomination at this point. make sure to keep an eye on the sky tonight. an unusually large asteroid will fly by earth around 8:00 p.m. eastern. i think that's when bruce will police and company is going to fly up there. just kidding. it's expected to be bright enough to be seen with the telescope or a camera. keep your eyes on the sky. mr. kilmeade? >> brian: don't look up yet. in fact, look at your tv. more fallout over the national security leaks. democrats blocking resolution introduced by their gop colleagues on tuesday.
it would call for attorney general eric holder to appoint a special independent counsel to investigate the trio of leaks coming out of the white house. this after the attorney general chose two political appointees within the department of justice to lead the investigation. joining us now is one of those calling for a special counsel who is alarmed by the leaks coming out of somewhere, somehow, but into the newspapers. senator from georgia, chambliss, ranking member of the senate intelligence committee. senator, what progress have you made in terms of getting a different special prosecutor in there and not these u.s. attorneys? >> actually made none. we've been stone called by the administration. obviously the attorney general appointed two who i'm sure are good lawyers to do the investigation, but the fact of the matter is, number one, they're political appointees. they were appointed by this administration to their positions. they are answerable to the attorney general.
what we need is somebody that's independent, that's outside the realm of this administration because when you read these articles and you see what leaks took place, everything goes back towards the white house. when you have obama quoted from the situation room, you have axelrod inside the situation room, somebody has got to be able to be independent enough to investigate thoroughly the white house's involvement. >> brian: i never heard of two attorneys. they're going to get in each other's way. you need a leader to lead this and they have huge staffs for that reason. >> that's another obvious problem, brian. they both have been given responsibility to do investigation of different and separate stories. well, this is a cascade of leaks, a true volume of leaks like we've never seen before. you need one person who has the power and authority to subpoena from the attorney general without having to go to the attorney general to get a subpoena as these guys are going to have to do.
>> brian: you think it was tom donnellan? >> i don't know. i mean, obviously that's what the investigation is for, but certainly he is the national security advisor. he was in the situation room when these discussions took place, but i have no idea at this point. >> brian: i want to bring up something else 'cause i'm very interested in that, but real quick, if you think this is more serious than the wowry plane investigation because senator biden then wanted independent and he got it. >> yeah, i mean, who have the two loudest members of the united states senate calling for a special counsel in that case? barak obama and joe biden. and the bush administration did appoint a special counsel, gave them authority to act as if they were the attorney general. that's a key difference because that special counsel was not responsible to the attorney general. he had subpoena authority, he could convene a grand jury of
the he had real power as an investigator. these guys, irrespective of how good a lawyer and prosecutors they are, they simply don't have the power and authority to do that. >> brian: so from the bin laden raid to the virus to having a saudi being a double agent inside yemen, all those things are exposed, to the cooperation with the movie, but it just became too much and republicans stepped up and senator diane finestein outraged. so we're going to track this and hopefully make progress and at the very least, get it to stop. always great to see you. >> aim here. >> brian: coming up on "fox & friends," big breaking news on the economy in a matter of moments. weekly jobless numbers about to be released. holding their breath, i imagine, everybody at the white house. eric policy be here breathing in and out freely. he'll be here it break us down and he's using doughnuts to describe where our economy is heading. eric, watch this. it's not a movie. it's really a group of bees

obama. i really haven't. i'm not being partisan. >> brian: he said last year, he presented these option to stimulate the job situation and payroll tax cuts. >> the dirty little secret in dc among democrats is you don't want to raise taxes when the economy is sputtering. so all the jobs plans that i've heard that may or may not work, all have to do with keeping taxes lower, extending payroll tax holidays. they have a big problem coming up. at the end of the year action the bush tax cuts, unless they vote on them l expire and forget it. that is the fiscal cliff. >> steve: it's not just the rich people. it's everybody. >> gretchen: in the speech today, i guarantee you it will be that it's congress' fault because they will not pass more stimulus money that the president wants. >> how about a real jobs plan? how about something that's really going to work? we talked about the repatriation. there are so many ways you can stimulate economic growth and jobs in america other than point the finger at congress, or point
the finger at loopholes in taxes. get real. get down and dirty with creating real jobs. >> brian: one of the big stories this week has been president obama coming forward, even i think it was monday, tuesday in baltimore action saying why do people blame me for the deficit? it was baked in the cake. it was going to rise. that is what president bush left me. >> when he said that, he said it's like someone ordering a steak dinner and martini and leaving us, leaving me, president obama, stuck with the tab. so i went back and i did it. i went month by month over the whole term of president bush. i didn't order a martini. president bush and then president obama. every single month there was accountable to bush and every single month accountable to obama. here is the full screen that shows what's gone on over the last 12 years. receipts, that's taxes that we take. money in. $2.2 trillion under president bush. $2.1 trillion under president obama. about the same. here is where it comes out.

rate twice the national average and fell 47th in job creation. fourth from the bottom. instead of hiring workers from his own state, romney outsourced call center jobs to india. he cut taxes for millionaires like himself while raising them on the middle class and left the state $2.6 billion deeper in debt. so now when mitt romney talks about what he'd do as president -- >> i know what it takes to create jobs. >> remember, we've heard it all before. >> i know how jobs are created. >> romney economics. it didn't work then and it won't work new. >> steve: frank, the dials were climbing on both the red and the green until about 30 seconds before the conclusion. what happened? >> exactly. that's when it got personal. let me tell you, that is one of the most effective obama campaign ads so far because it goes step by step with what mitt romney did rather than the typical accusations where they screaming about politics.
tries to focus on the record and that's one of the reasons why our voters in wisconsin said that's a legitimate attack. it's persuasive and impactful. that one works. >> steve: let's look at romney ad. it's called a better tomorrow. >> what will be different about a romney presidency? from day one, president romney focuses on the economy and the deficit. unleashes america's energy resources and stands up to china on trade. president romney's leadership puts jobs first. but there is something more than legislation or policy. it's the feeling we'll have that our country is back, back on the right track. that's what will be different about a romney presidency. >> i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> steve: it ends at 93 on the republican side. that's gigantic. >> but it doesn't get enough of the democrats and the reason why is that they want specifics all the way up to the end. they want to know the details and most importantly, how it will impact them. not the policy, but the impact
on average voters. >> steve: very nice. frank luntz joining us on this thursday live from orlando, thanks for bring along the dials. >> you got it. >> steve: straight ahead, it's all fun and games until somebody loses an eye. be careful, brian. trampoline safety coming up next. first, let's check in with martha mccallum. she's been on a couple of those in her lifetime. >> up and down on the trampoline. thank you. good morning. we've got this new jobs numbers that are out. john boehner says the house passed 30 jobs bills to start to fix the problem. the president says he wants his bill passed. somebody has to do something, right? and the president is losing traction with swing voters. all the new poll numbers coming up and the pentagon says a meat ax is about to fall on our defense capability. bill and i join you on those important stories at the top of the hour. we'll see you then [ male announcer ] this is sheldo whose long day setting up the news
