talking. the economy still the big talker. >> they were discussing romney's economic plan and juan williams says the president needs to capitalize on the fact that romney hasn't said exactly which program he will caught. >> i think the president pursued that gracively then he has a chance to create and not make this a referendum or barack obama's. >> you are shaking your head so vigorous it is going to shake right off. >> juan needs to make out his mind. he is laying out a plan or laying out a plan that does this. romney laid out a framework for not tax cut but wants to lower the rates and get rid of reductions and unnecessary

little heavier. little surprise but otherwise we are expecting the showers to die down as we head into the next several hours. it will stay generally dry we will see it in the afternoon hours. we had clouds early on and sunshine pulls through later on in the afternoon. as we head west into parts of minnesota and wisconsin we have heavy and strong storms moving through parts of minneapolis. those are in the east impacting the city of green bay. we are expect to go see more showers and thunderstorms as well through out the afternoon hours and into the evening across parts of the great lakes, northern michigan and wisconsin. could be seeing some of the storms produce severe weather in the form of large hail and strong winds. that is something we keep a close eye on there otherwise further off to the west we are talking about wildfires heather and ainsley unfortunately we are expecting strong wind gusts with
dry withiconditions and hot temperatures. thank so much. stocks rale leave seas this after the party commit to do staying in the euro zone. inches out in the east. that made fears for turmoil. the crisis is far from over. ashley webster is live in athens greece with the latest for us. >> good morning to you. you are right. yes it was a breech for the euro and the euro zone. the financial outlook from grease and other countries have not changed one bit. today the leader of the new democracy party that was vic do tore why yous will t-- victoriol try to form a renegotiation government. they say that right now the awes tear r os tear r awes ter rit measures
too hard. 23 percent. they need easing of those conditions. but bottom line this is a country still on the edge of a financial precipice. the problem here is leaders need to see at least take the step to get their books back in order. in the meantime what we are seeing in the market today from initial gains have rocked their steam. i think the realization is that the euro zone debt crisis is far from being sold. certainly the vote was important but now eyes will focus on the policies that will get this debt crisis at least in the right direction to be sold eyes will be on spain and italy as well. as someone told me this morning, yes, we voted pro europe but bottom line is this country still has at least 10 years worth of hard times ahead. can grease make the kind of
changes that will ultimately allow them to pay back the money for billions that will link this country. certainly the market initially are being positive as well. thank you so much ashley webster from grease. we will talk to lorne simonetti on what that means in a bit. >> here's a question for you this morning. how much money do you need to make in order to consider yourself successful? >> the answer is going to be a little bit startling. >> this picture is worth a thousand words. we will take you behind the scenes of the meeting of obama and president bush. >> first let's take a look at this morning's prices at this bump. national average is 3.50 cents a gallon.
>> 17 minutes after the hour. state of new jersey this one happening almost one week after the yacht explosion. once again suspicious mayday from the coast guard sent a helicopter on a search what turned up empty. the first cost tax payer the 33,000 dollars. there is a 3,000 dollar reward for the caller. crews continue to battle this massive fire. it has grown to over 55,000 acres, hundreds of residents have been forced to flee. it has destroyed 181 homes. it is 45 percent contained. they need the winds to calm down. this morning the white house leaked still a big talker senator john mc tan caking issue with why the white house did not appoint an independent prosecutor. >> for the life of me i don't understand why the president wouldn't want a special counseling just as he demanded a
special counseling in the valerie plain case. both could be totally satisfied this is objective and actually independent investigation. so what was good enough for the president of the united states in the valley plain investigation is preach of national security. >> the white house lashing out at critics calling the story a distraction. part of what's going on here congress is clear they say one of the cores to teach priority was to engage in investigation, to damage this president politically. republican congress talked openly about it. you have a situation where ang investigation has been announced by two united states attorneys including an appoint tee of president bush. way to let that investigation proceed rather than turping this into a game of distraction because what we really need to focus on is we need to continue
to fight against al qaeda continue the progress we have made and turn our attention as forcefully as we can to the economy. what we are seeing in washington there was an amazing article the other day i believe it was in the wall street journal where congress was saying we are not going to do anything until the economy because we want to help mitt romney. the economy needs help the middle class is struggling. you will see increasingly the distraction with republican congress. >> joe lieberman also addressing the investigation saying a special council is needed to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest. now it is time for one of our favorite segments today. brew on this. here's the question we want you to brew on. if you think you need to make 6 figures in order to consider yourself successful. if you do you may want to think again. most u.s. workers would feel successful earning between 50 and 70,000 dollars a year. about 20 percent say success is
earning less than 50,000 dollars. likely say they need to earn a 6 figure salary to be successful, men. >> that leads us to our question of the day. what do you think finds success. fox friend first at twitter or firstname.lastname@example.org. dependsen where you live. 20 minutes after the hour. should a 5th grader be allowed to deliver a speech about same-sex marriage to a school assembly. some parents are upset we will report you decide. >> startling new details about john edwards and rielle hunter.
>> he was one of mitt romney's most outspoken competitor. will rick santorum take a job with a potential romney administration? >> that is pretty much a flat no. it is not because i don't want to help governor romney. i don't want to be a part of him having a successful presidency it's not that. it's my he priorities of becoming a husband and a father. i have to take care of that. >> santorum says he wants to help romney get elected. he would be happy to offer any advice to him if he becomes president. if you feel like big brother is watching you you might be right. there are 64 drone bases right here on u.s. soil. there are plans to make 22 more. a dozen of the existing sites manned with drones are full of being armed. they are being used for military training. all right ainsley. thank you so much. 24 minutes after the hour now. stories you can bank on this morning. the outcome of the elections in
grease we have been telling you about are he'sing fears of a global financial melt down. now markets are reacting. lauren explain the significance. >> good monday morning everybody. it was billed as a temporary relief rally and temporary it was. over the weekend we found out the new democracy conservative party the pro bailout keeps the euro zone party wins the election and now they have to form struggling government. asian market is up. routine markets are start to go think. here in the u.s. we are going to be open lower. the reason is spain their yields on their surging euro heights. >> this is fascinating. it could happen on us. the wholly con me is now global. spain and italy. greece is the size of alabama. two percent of the total output of the your yo zone.
italy or much power in europe they come out of the euro zone and start using alera and the pace so. what are they even i don't even know. >> thank you so much fon ton th business network. 27 minutes after the hour. coming up should a 5th grader be allowed to deliver speech about same-sex marriage to a school assembly in that question is causing quite a controversy this morning. we will tell you about it. >> what you didn't see on television the behind the scenes pictures meeting president obama and president bush at the white house. we will tell you how this all went down. sally ride became the nirns woman to travel into space.
7:5:30. it could come as early as today. top questioning from justices led a lot of people to believe the individual mandate or healthcare law could be ruled unconstitutional. looking to north the intat el ground of the state of wisconsin. he will be rallying with support of governor scott walker and congressman paul ryan. this is the firs visit he made to the state since governor walker's recall victory. that win will reach votes for november. he had head to iowa then off to michigan as well. >> a story causing quite a controversy. a 5th grader wanted to deliver a speech about same-sex marriage to a school assembly in queens, new york. the principal said no because he felt it was not appropriate. the principal reversing her decision. the student will get to deliver his speech today.

>> oo this is a move mitt romney is calling politically motivated because it is done in an election year. >> i think if he really wanted to make a solution that dealt with these kids or illegal immigration in america this is something he would have taken up in his first three and a half years not just the last few months. he did it with policy. that is certainly a big part of the equation. >> firing back at romney's claim if the president was serious about immigration reform he would have done it before now. listen to what he says? >> it is ironic coming from governor romney saying he would veto the dream act. instead of sending 11 million people home asking for their self support. rom nae saying if he were in office he would focus on not just the stopgap measure. in entertainment news this morning the son of rocker ozzie
