>> it good morning, everyone, it's sunday, july 29th, i'm alisyn camerota. thank you for joining us so early. there are 100 days left until the election and mitt romney is talking zero tolerance, making a lot of news because he's saying he would back an israel strike against iran. we'll tell you all about that. >> dave: plus, as mayors across the country tell chick-fil-a to stay out the restaurant, the chain is not backing down. the latest on the chicken wars. >> clayton: sounds delicious. from the soda to baby bottles,
3:01 am
michael bloomberg trying to ban formula at hospitals. not ban, but more difficult to get. we'll debate this hot topic as "fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ >> good morning, everybody, thanks for joining us. >> clayton: and bad puns already from the floor crew already, what a way to kick it off. >> alisyn: dave, our floor director, said that's not a formula for success. >> dave: i love a good pun. >> clayton: good morning, we've got a lot coming up. we'll talk about the chicken wars because some interesting political folks have thrown their hat into the chicken wars ring. >> dave: more serious than chicken wars is the potential for real wars, 100 days out from the election and major breaking news concerning mitt romney's visit to israel. he's there today and so much is happening ahead of that
3:02 am
visit. let's start with what we've learned first, the obama administration has apparently brief briefed benjamin netanyahu attack if the sanctions does not work and iran does not back down and stop their nuclear program. >> alisyn: what's interesting, that information has just come out and much like some other events of this weekend, people wonder if this is meant to upstage mitt romney there because mitt romney had just met a few hours ago with benjamin netanyahu during which time the actual details of what they spoke about have not been released, but the headline came out was that he would support israel if it felt it had to take some military action against iran. let's listen to benjamin netanyahu how so far sanctions have not worked. >> you have to be honest and say that all the sanctions and
3:03 am
diploma diplomacy, that's why i believe a strong military threat coupled with the sanctions to have a chance to change that situation. >> clayton: the headlines overnight from the romney campaign and as well as is the romney foreign policy advisor had this to say about israel. said if israel has to take action on its own that romney would respect that decision and back that. that it is interesting because of the long relationship that mitt romney has had with benjamin netanyahu dating back to the 1970's, of course the boston consulting group and so much has been made of their cozy relationship, benjamin netanyahu saying he would welcome mitt romney into israel with open arms as with any other leader, but you imagine that long friendship-- >> would you have thought that
3:04 am
mitt romney would support action against iran, gone farther, but the news, tom donlan according to an israeli newspaper, tom done la, advisor to the president that believed obama administration's own plan to potentially attack iran as well. appears there's not a lot of daylight between the two in hawkish views and protecting interests. >> clayton: and nancy pelosi later this week coming out and saying, look, the obama administration has been hawkish, taken a lot of jobs, but coming out to defend the president, whatever mitt romney is saying is one thing, but the president has been all over iran and watching him closely. >> alisyn: and once again you have to wonder if the information is coming out because they're trying to garner the jewish vote, we hadn't heard about it until today and mitt romney's visit to israel, if both sides are he jewish vote and important in the upcoming
3:05 am
election. >> dave: and the number trending towards president obama. 68-25 in terms are where he we stand in terms of jewish-american voters well down from the john mccain numbers in 2008, but up for president obama since last checked just over a month ago. >> clayton: meanwhile, mitt romney said look, when i'm oversees i'm not picking my vice-presidential candidate not while i'm in london. >> dave: that's a bad pr play. and here is high vp candidate. that's not stopping people perhaps on that vice-presidential short list going out and supporting mitt romney around the country, marco rubio making an appearance in las vegas and jeb bush sitting down with mike huckabee. here is why marco rubio and folks need to get in line. >> you're not working to get rid of somebody, working to replace somebody with someone like mitt romney who understands what's made us prosperous in the past and in
3:06 am
the future as well. the choice is between people that believe in the the things that made us different and those that ask people to apply the policies that will make us just like everybody else. you will decide those elections and willingness to work and make a difference and i promise you i will do my part if you do yours. thank you, thank you. >> he had a better chance of getting reelected in a close election by dividing the country than trying to aspire to a different way of doing things. what a shame. what a missed opportunity and so the next president needs to lead, you can't have a president that's always looking down and saying that the entrepreneurs are really not that relevant. in america they're really relevant. without them we would be nothing. >> that's what they were saying on the stump, basically, for mitt romney. if you believe in omens or superstitious, what was going on with marco rubio yesterday because he tweeted about this emergency landing. he says not one, but two
3:07 am
planes i was on today had malfunctioned. and forced to make an emergency landing, i know how to take a hint. not sure what that hint is. >> maybe stop flying, stay home instead of go to that particular campaign event, but he tried to get to this campaign event he was going to be speaking instead he took to the phone, and said he'd call in and put him on loud speakers over the campaign event and did the speech on the phone. >> dave: he's such a good speaker, it worked. >> people waiting to see marco rubio, we don't have him, his plane was delayed, usually over the speakers. >> alisyn: and satisfying sound. >> and rubio's going towards the vp pick, all indications it's got to be the next week, probably the big news once romney returns home and poland would be the second leg that have visit. >> we will stay on all of this this morning for you, and meanwhile, we have the headlines to tell you about,

3:11 am

3:17 am
might be and i hope an independent investigation occurs which hasn't happened yet where the leaks are coming from. what the special ops chief said what we're doing is undermining the sources and methods of our intelligence. when we give away where we're getting the information and how we're getting it. we put real lives at risk and recruit the people who can bring the intelligence forward. and we understand a lot this is politics, and politics coming out in front of national security should never be the case. >> dave: the story i read from the israeli newspaper, are you suggesting even that, that warning from donlan to netanyahu is to preempt romney's visit. >> obama hasn't visited israel, why now are we talking
3:18 am
about the secret plans they shared about bombing iran, only because romney is going there to secure and demonstrate further commitment to standing with israel. oh, let's slip this nugget to the press because everyone knows that we're really the hawk and standing against iran. it's politics, it doesn't have to do with iran, that they shouldn't get the bomb. it's disturbing and we should call nem out on it. >> dave: if you're on the president's national security team accused of leaks, wouldn't you come out initially, immediately and deny that you're part of the leaks? now we go with an investigation, the doj says they've pointed two u.s. attorneys. is that enough to stop the leaks? >> no, it's not enough. you've got to appoint someone outside of the chain of command and two forecast working on this investigation have been cozy with president obama and inside this administration and it has to
3:19 am
be independent to identify where the leaks come from, they have to stop and it looks very much like they are hcoming from the house. >> dave: you would agree, that could risk our security national-wise throughout the world. >> who wants to give intelligence and look at the israelis on the virus on the iranian nuclear facility and we reveal that should we partner with the u.s. and it ends up on the front of the new york times. >> dave: thanks. >> thanks for having me. >> dave: and ngovernors saying voter i.d. suppresses the right to vote. our next guest says not necessarily the case. have you been stuck in a car with road rage.

3:26 am
votes of whites and blacks, went up in that state and latinos there a different story there in georgia. is that enough evidence? you know what liberals are saying in cities hike philadelphia and states like pennsylvania you could see as much as 40% lower turnout on the democratic side as a result of this. what do you say to that? >> that is just not the case. and in georgia, indiana, and other states where voter i.d. have been made available for free, where there's been sufficient voter education, actually participation went up in 2008, and that presidential race, as compared to 2004, in georgia, not only by blacks, but by hispanics as well. that was the case in indiana and we think at that we should let the facts speak for themselves.
3:27 am
this is a common sense best practice. if you think about the things that we need to show voter i.d.'s for, we see this is a common day occurrence in american life. this is all a political strategy to use fear of voter repression to gin up, you know, the turnout of latino and african-american votes in some key battle ground states. >> clayton: ken blackwell-- >> let's call it what it is. >> clayton: ken blackwell, the former mayor of cincinnati, thank you for joining us with insights probably not held by others with close election results and others you've had to deal with. thank you, ken. >> thank you, good to be with you. >> alisyn: coming up, forget humans, these sharks apparently like cameras as their shark bait. all right, and from your soda. michael bloomberg is trying to make formula much hard tower get at hospitals, has the

group is trying to bully our city. >> alisyn: what i heard an official say the cross is a recognizable landmark in the city, it didn't so much represent an endorsement of faith, but rather of visual piece of the city's identity. yet, on the flip side, does the atheist group have a point, if you're something other than christian, it might make you feel left out? >> you know, we, we are in america, we have a freedom of religion, not a freedom from religion, in this day and age, it's surprising to me that people can get, think they have a constitutional right to not be offended at anything. really, we're saying it's intolerant if you don't allow people of faith to participate in our public life and i see this as really an intolerance of religion and that's really what is at stake here. >> alisyn: if we can put up the two logos, i want your comments and reaction, because the new logo, it's not as pretty as the old logo, it's--
3:48 am
it looks great different. is this the end of it? is this one on the right that we're looking at now the logo of steubenville? do they have recourse? >> they do and right now they're exploring their option. this is the not over, the fight is not done. that's what we need to say, we're not going to take this anymore, draw a line in the sand. these people, out of town, out of touch groups can't bully us into taking away something that is just part of our community, who we are. >> alisyn: but michael, they can bully you to use your word because this is a lawsuit. and honestly, steubenville doesn't have the money or doesn't want to commit the money to fight in this lawsuit so maybe it is over? >> well, they're exploring option toss fight this right now. i can't speak on behalf of the city, but i know they're exploring other options, phone calls and e-mails saying, no, this is not us, who do they think they are?
3:49 am
the state motto with ohio, with god all things are possible. >> there are so many parts of our country that recognize the right place of religion and this is not stepping over the pounds and this is reasonable and i believe that we need to say in america, enough is enough, and people of faith are free he to enter into our public life without having intimidation. >> quickly i want your comments on another story. and this is a company that has won an injunction to stop the mandate of having to fly contraceptive to its employees and they won against obamacare, this must give you some encouragement moving forward? >> it is an amazing thing. and it's a great first victory. but we have to take it even further. franciscan university along with the archdiocese of new york and washington d.c. and 40 other entities stewed the federal government on the same basis and i believe this is a great first step forward. this law really imposes upon people of faith, whether
3:50 am
they're in a private business like this company in colorado or a religious institution, that he shunned have things this that contradict their faith and this is a great day that we can hopefully appeal back this really restricting conscience destroying mandate from the hhs department. >> alisyn: michael harman, from franciscan university of steubenville, thanks for coming in. >> thanks, ali sna mayors around the country telling chick-fil-a to stay out of their city because of a stance on gay marriage. is this freedom of speech? we'll explore. an electric company wants to clear out miles of trees, some say it will decrease the value of homes. you'll hear from concerned residents coming up. ♪

3:55 am
>> hi, dave. >> dave: i want to look at what rahm emanuel says. he says that chick-fil-a doesn't respect their values. they do, they hire and customers, they don't discriminate against anyone, how do they not respect the chicago residents. >> and recently emanuel backtracked and he's not going to ban. i'm a strong supporter of marriage equality and lgbt community. and as free speech, a commentator, defend speech you may not like. i strockly disagree with the kathy family views, but should not be punished by boycott or local officials regulating the business. the reason the mayors are back tragging, you cannot or should
3:56 am
not based on religious views, you can do so if they discriminate through employment or customers, but as you said they don't do that. >> dave: and ram is not alone, the mayor of boston spoke out strongly saying he would do anything to keep them out. he backtracked as well and saying let's do it from the bully pulpit and ed lee, the mayor of san francisco, vincent gray, d.c., all of them joining in the opposition to chick-fil-a. you mentioned the legal avenues, which there are none. not allowed to do this constitutionally. even as a democrat, a liberal, isn'ted idea of openness and tolerance and respect for other points of view. >> it is, sadly today we don't on the left or right, and joining twitter mean spirited. i said i'm pro marriage equality, but you've got to respect people's view as long as they act within the law which chick-fil-a does. the point i want my fellow liberals to know. it cuts both ways, there could

iran. >> it's hard to sort it out. the details are changing every minute and the romney campaign is offering clarifications of policies. good luck. (laughter) >> well, dave, the latest that we heard from mitt romney's foreign policy advise ser that romney's hopes diplomatic and economic measures will keep iran from building a nuclear bomb. romney recognizes israeli's right to defend itself and america to stand with israel and we got our hands on a pea speech that romney is going to deliver and when iran's leaders deny the holocaust or speak of wiping the nation off the map only the naive or worse will dismiss it as an excess of rhetoric. make no mistake, the ayatollahs in iran want to
4:03 am
know who will object and who will look the other way. my message is one and the same. i will not look away and either will my country. now that speech coming up. but the israeli prime minister was meeting with romney and a pretty harsh critique of the obama administration's efforts to stop the iranian nuclear program. >> we have to be honest and say that all of the sanctions and diplomacy so far have not set back the iranian program by one iota and that's why i believe that we need a strong and credible military threat, coupled with the sanctions to have a chance to change that. >> reporter: it's very interesting to hear the israeli prime minister say that. because the israeli transportation minister has confirmed on israeli radio that president obama's national security advisor, tom
4:04 am
donlan, met with him and said that the united states will pursue military action if sanctions don't work. >> dave: thank you, peter. there's now a clarification on that report. a senior israeli official not named just there, said that's not true, nothing in this israeli newspaper article is true, that netanyahu never met with tom donlan did not meet with him one-on-one or plans to attack iran. it would appear that there's yet another leak, from the same guy, tom donladonlan, accu of being part of the leaks. you're going to expect back and forth competing for the jewish vote. it's ratcheted up on this sunday morning. >> alisyn: and frankly, why they're leaking, it's the same thing, sounds like both candidates have the same thing.
4:05 am
>> dave: and i don't think that the obama administration is rushing to say we, too, support israel and-- >> behind the scenes, now we want to float it to you know about it. ratcheting up is the term used around the vice-presidential contest right now. who will be the vice-presidential pick. does it really matter? well, some think it does, but here back at home while mitt romney is overseas and some of the people on mitt romney's short list for a vice-presidential candidate have been out on the stump supporting mitt romney. marco rubio perhaps leading the pack. on the popularity contest and he and jeb bush throwing their support. >> you're not working to get rid of somebody, you're working to replace somebody with someone like mitt romney, understands what made us prosperous in the past and the future as well. the choice is belief in people that made us different and those that ask you to apply the policies that mr. make us just live everybody else.

4:09 am
highlighted. >> and this presidency-- ronald reagan, 10.4% to him. not 10% the way for mr. obama. at this point, mr. reagan had the economy growing at 6% and mr. obama has been growing it 2%. he had gotten unemployment down to 7%, and mr. obama 8%. this guy inherited a bigger mess, what he does is alibi better than anybody i've seen. >> alisyn: we'll have more on the rest of the show. we want to get to your headlines, three more victims of that colorado movie massacre, were laid to rest. matthew mcquinn drove in front of his girlfriend and his girlfriend is arriving at the funeral on crunches. this emotional photo taken as she steps at his casket to say

floyd chapman is the president and founder of the american small business league. good morning, lloyd good morning. >> alisyn: in 2008 you said that president obama made a promise to you. tell us what you asked him for and what happened? >> well, i asked president obama to simply end the diversion of billions of dollars in federal small business contracts to fortune 500 firms. and he and his campaign agreed and issued a statement that said it's time to end the diversion of federal small business contracts to corporate giants and he refused to honor that promise. as a result, every day millions of dollars in federal contracts that should be going to the small businesses where most americans work or most of the gross domestic product comes from, 90% of them new jobs, have been divert today companies in europe, in asia and big businesses in america. for example, the obama

administration is going small businesses contracts to an italian contractor with 76,000 employees and most americans would agree that's a travesty and needs to stop and not doing it. >> dave: as a result you're switching your support. you point out that the vast majority of stimulus money did not go to small businesses. >> no. >> dave: to corporations. but aren't there rules to assure that federal money guaranteed to small businesses go it that very place. how is that not happening? >> now what? the small business administration says it's anomalies, so every day that president obama has been in office, millions of dollars and small business contracts have been diverted to rolls royce, air space, fin machinica and they say it's an anomaly. they say in an investigation
4:18 am
by nbc that's it's an anomaly. >> the sba's own inspector general says it's fraud and i would like to see the justice department look into this. it's a great issue for mitt romney to look into because i think na everyone out there today would agree with me we should not be giving federal small business contracts to the biggest companies in the world. >> alisyn: yesterday, we had on congressman mike kelly. he had made a bit of a mark on the floor of the house of representatives when he talked about the stack of regulations that small businesses are subject to. he got a rousing round of applause about that. here is what he said on "fox & friends" yesterday. >> in the global economy, america with everything that the creator provided us with should be be dominating the market right now. what's holding us back are regulations that are ov overzealous and makes it too
4:19 am
hard for us to dominate the way we should dominate. >> alisyn: lloyd, what do you think about that? are we overregulated? >> i'm shocked by some the regulations to small businesses. it's amazing. small businesses are the economic engine of our country. they're responsible for, you know, most of the jobs, most of the gross domestic product. over 90% of u.s. exports and you know, small businesses have just been ignored by president obama and they're oppressive. a lot of the policies are just unbelievable and they're very hard for small businesses to respond to all the different policies. >> yeah. >> but i hope that this issue comes out in the election and it needs to be a very important issue that president obama and mitt romney discuss in the campaign. >> dave: no doubt, with a hundred days out. small business will be a big deal in in election. the founder of the small business league, new for being

4:39 am
down and came up with six goals, portion sizes is one of them and eating real food is another, and get losing, read ingredients and get kids in the kitchen to help you. >> clayton: that's important, really important. let's go through some of these, eat as many real foods as possible. i've heard it said if your grandmother wouldn't recognize the food you're eating and wouldn't exist naturally in nature, don't eat it. >> alisyn: it's harder, harder to do that than the boxed pizza delivery you were talking about. how did you do that it, marshal. >> you'd be amazed. the first few days were hard i didn't like it, didn't want to do it because i couldn't eat what i wanted and how much i wanted. you know, i couldn't eat it every day, so, i mean, but day six, day seven felt he great. improved so much. >> clayton: in school, you're eating healthier in school, when you're he eating real ingredients you actually start to remember what you're learning in school and have

4:46 am
voter integrity. if you go to the voter box and blocked by a new black panther, and that doesn't bother the department. and pennsylvania passed a law that's more voter friendly than the law that the supreme court upheld in indiana, but this justice department is in a keystone state shakedown, asking for all sorts of documents, including the documents that the governor, tom corbitt, relied on just to write a press release, that's how outrageous this request is and hopefully pennsylvania will have the sense not to reply unless they want to be sued. >> dave: it's not talked about enough that decision, that supreme court that upheld indiana's right to do a similar thing. a good point to make. why, since you've worked at the doj, why they're so intent on trying, when it affects
4:47 am
young people in the conduct. do i have to have an i.d. to vote? it seems so basic to americans, why is the doj concerned? >> it's purely partisan. how do i know that? because within 24 hours after the justice department issued that letter, the democrat congressional campaign committee, the dccc sent out a fund raising letter thanking the justice department for doing that and asking for money. look, they have a demoralized base in philadelphia. this justice doesn't accident brought a single case except the one i did, early in the administration, to hope the voters under voting rights act section two. there's a lot of simmering discontent for civil rights groups, this is a way to gin up their base, that badly needs to be ginned up. >> dave: and what they're not going after folks at mf global, particularly john corzine, but they've done over

(laughter) >> no, i mean, first of all, israel is our oldest friend up until the arab spring, the only democracy in the middle east. obviously, there's a big american jewish vote, and also a lot of christian fundamentalists, evangelical pro israel, very supportive of israel and blocks in this country and a strategic friend of the middle east and both men, obama and romney, want to show that they're supportive and really, right now, the way to show that is to say that we
5:16 am
are not going to allow iran to get a nuclear weapon and it's, you know, kind of subtle and i'm not sure anything substantive in terms of the the difference in what they're saying. they're both saying that iran getting a nuclear weapon would be unacceptable. >> clayton: politically, chris, i'm curious, we were hearing reports from inside the mitt romney's camp. some were supporting romney's trip to europe and others saying he should stay home right now. so, a lot of people wondering if mitt romney has been able to come out and portray himself well enough to the electorate while the obama camp is painting him the way they had he' like to paint him when he's abroad. this is crunch time. is it a smart move for him to be out of the country. >> i get the sense, people i talked to. it was a debate among the advisors, but ultimately wasn't a debate because the candidate, mitt romney, who of course is a huge fan of the olympics and was the

forget it, momentary gaffe. london wasn't good. here he was on the international stage and waste asked a question, is london ready for the olympics and gave a perfectly co-gent and some say an accurate answer, but answering as a former olympics organizers, which is what he was, fine for that, but not a good answer for a potential president. the easy answer to say is yes, of course, london is ready and these are going to be the best olympics ever. >> dave: i wouldn't imagine encouraging a return to the borders today. but on your show you'll talk about that a lot and sit down with justin anthony scalia. and here is what you'll talk about, here is a clip. >> yes, some will be imposed and depends, there were certain limitations. >> what about the technological limb nations and

5:47 am
the argument from the other side that the company does, that they're bigoted, that's the argument that this is the representation of one individual, right. >> absolutely, if a company was saying we're not going to hire someone based on their sexual orientation so they can't sell chicken in our stores, i would, i would say that is wrong. that's absolutely wrong, but's not saying that. he's saying i actually believe in the biblical tradition, that's my phone, i wonder if it's god. >> alisyn: it sounds like it. >> you have the church bells as your ring tone. >> i always thought this might happen. should i get it. >> no, you should not. >> we should say quickly though your standing up for chick-fil-a, sarah palin, governor huckabee may have start this had. >> bloomberg said today or yesterday, quote, that would be illegal to keep chick-fil-a from coming into our city, that would be illegal. it's not first and foremost attack against christianity, it's an attack against the constitution, it's an attack
5:48 am

6:01 am
but... >> alisyn: they ought to be here momentarily. >> clayton: i got the "star trek" doll. who is the bigger win engineer interesting tips on pawn shops. breaking news regarding mitt romney and his visit to israel. it appears both the obama administration and mitt romney are jockeying to show their support. who supports israel more, in a potential attack of iran, it comes down to nuclear weapons. if the sanctions don't work, and don't stop iran from building a nuclear weapon, it appears both sides would support a potential attack on iran. >> alisyn: the devil is in the details, what does "support" israel mean? and here's what the policy advisor to mitt romney said this morning, governor romney recognizes israel's right to defend itself and that it is right for america to stand with it. again, what does that mean, military action? more sanctions. >> clayton: and that is ay bit of a revisement of the statement which we heard last night come
6:02 am
out of the romney camp from dan which was... we would back them and what did that mean? we'd suddenly send jets and also help and this is a bit of a revisement of the statement saying we'd support their decision to do an attack on iran. >> dave: one thing is clear, benjamin netanyahu wants to send a clear signal that all of these sanctions and all of this talk is not working. >> we have to be honest and say sanctions and diplomacy so far, has not set back the iranian program by one iota and i believe we need a strong and credible military threat, coupled with the sanctions to have a chance to change that situation. >> clayton: much was made of their relationship, dating back to the 1970s, mitt romney and benjamin netanyahu, old friends, a boston consulting group and advisors, when he became
6:03 am
governor of massachusetts, netanyahu give him advice, how to shrink government and they have similar ideology and, they have seen it as a cozy relationship as he visits israel. >> dave: and the president's stance, an israeli newspaper had an article out this morning saying tom donelon, the national security advisor for president became, actually met with netanyahu, and laid out a plan of potential attack of iran. it was confirmed by one administration official in the netanyahu administration and is now denied by another but, clearly, both are saying, we both want to stand arm in arm with israel, against iran. >> alisyn: and again... it is hard to overlook the timing and to think if there is something coming out of the administration and if -- whether an authorized bit of information or a leak, from tom donelon... meanwhile the president used the weekly
6:04 am
address this weekend to talk about the economy and where we puts the blame and it may sound familiar: >> president barack obama: you see, republicans in congress and their nominee for president believe the best way to create prosperity in america is to let it trickle down from the top. they believe if our country spends trillions more on tax cuts for the wealthy it will create jobs. even if we had to pay for it by gutting things like education and training and by raising middle class taxes. they are wrong. and i know they are wrong because we already tried it that way for most of the last decade. it didn't work. >> clayton: this is the narrative, the middle-out policies the president is putting forth, heading in to the election from the obama campaign and at issue is whether or not a president can be reelected with these types of numbers. no president since fdr had these types of numbers and been reelected. ronald reagan face ad a similar
6:05 am
situation, and, it is not happening under president obama and, president ronald reagan in green and president obama in red, right there. >> dave: what happens, each time we have seen the economy appear to rebound and start to recover and bounce back? a dip, this is the third dip in the growth of the country, in terms of the quarterly basis. down now to 1.5%. and it is that up and then back down and, web, the president said, when the growth, gdp growth was at 2.5% he said this is not a time to raise taxes. now the gdp is growing even slower than that. how can he make the same almost exact opposite argument now. >> alisyn: university of maryland economist peter mauricy had something to say ctrasting president obama with president ronald reagan. >> this guy did not inherit the biggest... of any postwar president, ronald reagan inherited a terrible mess and unemployment peaked at 10.4% for him and not 10% the way for
6:06 am
mr. obama and at this point, mr. ronald reagan had the economy growing at 6%. whereas mr. obama has it growing at 2% and had gotten unemployment down to 7% and obama, above 8% and, simple employee he didn't inherit a bigger mess and he does his alibi better than anybody i have ever seen. >> clayton: and, first we have headlines for you. >> alisyn: sure do. three more victims of the colorado movie massacre have been laid to rest. they are all such sad stories, the first is the loved ones, from ohio, mourned matt mcquinn who dove in front of his girlfriend to save her and he was shot three times and this photo was taken as she stopped to say a prayer at his casket and she is still injured there as well. and, san antonio, texas, family and friends remembered 24-year-old jessica ghawi. >> she will never be forgotten and your spirit and love will never fade away.

>> good morning, good to see you. today we are talking about more heat across parts of the center of the country, triple digits for dallas, texas and kansas city and, across the northeast we are actually enjoying temperatures that are slightly below average, as much as 13°, below the normal for this time of the year, new york city, expect a high temperature into the middle to upper 70s, and otherwise, top temperatures across the central plains will continue for a couple more days, heading into the work week, triple digits, 1/10 of your high temperature in tulsa, oklahoma and the unrelenting heat, high pressure in place and dry conditions which are aggravating the current ongoing drought across that part of the country and 80% of the u.s. is actually abnormally dry for this time of the year and, again, seeing dry conditions across the lower 48 and we'll see rainfall across portions of the northeast and seeing that coming down now and albany, drying out and, as we head west, showers and storms across the central and southern rockies and some could produce

6:11 am
and sarah palin has been part of an appreciation herself and stopped by chick-fil-a in the -- tweeted this, you can see, stopped by and she says, stop by chick-fil-a, in woodlands to support a great business. >> clayton: keep your e-mails and tweets to us, and, a story you'll only find on fox, climate change skeptics say the agency's findings about the icecaps melting are full of hot air. >> dave: and the nanny state at it again, new york city mayor michael bloomberg trying to lock away baby formula at hospitals. has he gone too far? tell us what you think.

>> alisyn: a dire warning on global warming in greenland, saying for several days this month greenland's surface ice cover melted over a larger area than at any time in more than 40 years, of satellite observations. scientists outside the agency say nasa has it all wrong, are they intentionally exaggerating the science? joining us is patrick michaels, a senior fellow with the cato institute. good morning, patrick. >> how are you, ali? >> alisyn: doing well. the photos over greenland show something alarming and that is that 97% of the ice sheet as you can see, here, that normally covers greenland, appears to be gone, it has melted. what do you make of this? >> that is not quite right. it means the temperature went above freezing over the greenland land mass for a couple days in july and nasa called that, quote, unprecedented. well, it's not. ice core records show it
6:16 am
happened in 1889 and happens once every 150 years and, furthermore, last night, i looked up the average august high temperature at the high cold station in greenland which is summit grind land and it is freezing. that means, on 40% of august days, the temperature goes above freezing. >> alisyn: in fact the ice sheet will rebuild itself... >> it is cold, right now. >> alisyn: and will rebuild. here's what is interesting. as you say, this -- you believe, this is part of the 150-year cycle. where the ice sheet melts and, in fact, other climatologists, if that is the right word, scientists have agreed, however it's not quite 150 years them. last time it happened was 1889 and we are 27 years early, does that concern you. >> i'm is not a believer in all of these sort of cyclical stuff. there is a lot -- huge amount of noise in climate data. the real problem here is nasa's
6:17 am
continued serial exaggeration of issues. you may remember not long ago, they had discovered life, arsenic based life form and it turned out to be wrong. they discovered life in meteorites and it hit antarctica and that turned out to be wrong... >> alisyn: but, patrick out of curiosity, if you don't think the ice-sheet melting is cyclical and is not attributable to global warming, what is causing it? >> no. no. it is warmer than it was 100 years ago and, there is ice loss from greenland and the point is how much and how fast and if you look at the studies in their entirety, the alarming stories about rammed loss don't hold up. you will lose ice from greenland over the course of the next 100 years, no doubt about that. >> alisyn: in other words, global warming is happening. >> right. >> alisyn: is it something we should be alarmed about? >> well, in a word, my view on global warming is, luke warm. and there are more and more
6:18 am
people that agree with me. let's go back to nasa, again. and look at their forecast they made in the mid 1980s that got everybody all heated up. turns out they forecast about twice as much warming as is observed. there's a big story carried today in many newspapers, on the global temperature records. well, yes, it is warmer and the guys who wrote the story, really have a luke warm forecast for the next 50 or 100 years. i think we overestimated. and maybe exaggerated this thing. and, well, people exaggerating things in washington, are you shocked. >> alisyn: we'll leave it on that note. thanks for coming in with your perspective on all of this. >> bye. >> alisyn: bye. still ahead, have you ever been stuck? a car with a raging driver? >> oh, my god, please, slow down! >> do you want to get there on time. >> but i don't want to die in your cab. >> you should have thought of that before you got in! >> alisyn: who is this biggest

6:23 am
is far beyond your years. you want to save your local theatre. why is this theatre, to you, worth saving? >> because it's not only a theatre but it is a place i get to go and sing or get to go see other people do shows and it is a great place to hang out. >> dave: and it is outdated and needs the newest digital equipment to survive and you wanted to help raise money, the community, trying to get the whole community to pitch in and you had your birthday party, ten-year-old birthday party and all this little girls are asking for the latest american girl and the chairs and house and everything else to go with it -- i know from experience -- instead of that you wanted everyone to make donation to save the theatre. how did it do? >> i raised $280. at the birthday party. >> dave: and your friends were bringing what, making donations to save the theatre. >> yes. >> dave: and you are not done there and you have raised $380, right. >> right. >> dave: towards your goal of
6:24 am
,000. >> yes. >> dave: what are you doing next to help raise money. >> i'll have a bake sale, actually, today and i'm going to sell a dollar with tootsie rolls and candies and the frame for a boy and a butterfly box, like a book. >> dave: and the sale is today in your home town. >> yes. >> dave: one person cannot do it alone, i think the theatre needs $70,000 by january 1st. have you gotten other people to come along. >> yes, actually i'm having friends, right now, come and helping me and i have people who said that i inspired them and stuff. to go and raise their own money. >> dave: so you want everyone, you say, if you raise $1,000, you get 70 other people, to do something dollar, or $100 others to do something similar that is how you save the theatre? we have a full screen to show people where they can help, make a donation to help walton theatre and there is the address: the walton theatre preservation association, po box 1, walton,

new york, 13856, i'm curious, a lot of people when they see this, they think, her mom and dad are pushing her to do this but clearly that is not the case, mom and dad are here, offset and what do they think of what you are doing. >> they think it is a wonderful idea and actually helped with everything and helped me count my money and everything, because it was hard to do it by myself. but i think they are really happy. >> dave: they must be, seeing a ten-year-old be unselfish, is unheard of! nothing against my own, wonderful children, but most kids are so concerned with what they are getting it is hard for them to imagine giving to someone else. we wish you the best of luck in saving this walton theatre, it sounds like a wonderful little place in the community everyone loves, right? >> yes. >> dave: mara little, she's ten, we gave you the address, how to help. wonderful mission you are on, thanks for being here this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> dave: coming up, mitt romney in the midst of hisover seas trip talking tough, throwing support behind one of our biggest allies.

6:30 am
>> clayton: welcome back to the big show. i know ali had her kids here in manhattan. >> alisyn: not here on the set. but... they were -- mount sinai i had the kids. >> clayton: and i had my son here and the reason we're talking about this, what happens when you have a baby in manhattan you are likely handed baby formula or given bottles and things like that at the hospitals here and now mayor bloomberg is going to be locking up the baby formula in a storeroom closet unless the mom asks for it and instead of being handed it upon having a baby. >> dave: at issue, it's as if the mayor had a checklist, salty
6:31 am
foods, check, sugary beverages, check and now, a decision is made for you, regarding breast feeding, i'll tell you, because government knows best, not you, my friend. >> alisyn: basically the mayor feels too many moms are using formula and not breast feeding and he thinks and science would agree that breast feeding is best and now if you are a mom, for whatever reason, if your baby is not latching on, if for whatever medical reason you cannot breast feed you have to make a special appeal to the nurses at the hospital and they have to give you a talking-to, the lactation consultants, about how breast feeding is best and then they'll unlock the formula and give it to you, not just once, you need the bottle once, every few hours they come back and remind you breast feeding is better for your baby and, helps with immunity and... >> alisyn: and it is a vulnerable time for new moms and they feel guilty if they aren't doing everything exactly perfectly and, the question is does it make them feel worse or
6:32 am
good education for them? that is the debate. >> dave: i think moms know the science and like to make their own minds up, when it comes to this. and e-mails, last time i looked, bloomberg is not a breast feeding mom. >> clayton: when was the last time you looked? >> dave: it is their prerogative. and, stop trying to parent adults. there's a great cartoon coming from the "new york post" tomorrow. i can see it. >> alisyn: and, bob in michigan saysyor is lucky that new york's big problems are all solved so he can try to dictate what new mom feeds her baby. >> clayton: and, bloomberg, limit government, not formula, thanks, chas. >> dave: and standing up for chick-fil-a's free speech says, again it seems like he wants government to be the one that steps in and tells you what decision is right for you, your home, your gut, whatever it may be, let us know, new video this
6:33 am
morning, mitt romney visiting the western wall in israel. there he is, on the second leg of the overseas trip and what is he looking to accomplish there today, carl cameron is liver in jerusalem with more on the trip. good morning, carl. >> reporter: well, well into mid-afternoon here in jerusalem and mitt romney already had a host of meeting with various israeli leaders and went to the western wall, this evening he'll dine, he and his wife, ann, their both here, will have a private, intimate dinner with benjamin netanyahu and his wife. earlier today, he met with the israeli prime minister and beforehand romney aides said that mitt romney would support israel if it made the decision to use military action, in order to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons. and, here's what mr. romney said when standing next to mr. netanyahu, just a little while later: >> your perspective with regards to iran and its effort to become a nuclear-capable nation are
6:34 am
ones which i take with great seriousness and look forward to chatting with you about that, further actions we can take to dissuade iran from their nuclear policies. >> reporter: netanyahu and romney have a relationship that goes back to 1974 and they talked about their mutual friendship for quite some time and by contrast, mr. netanyahu had a frosty relationship with the obama administration since the president suggested that any type of peace agreement with the palestinians should include a halt on new developments on the west bank as well as a return to the 1967 borders and mr. netanyahu seemed very critical of the obama administration when it comes to iran by suggesting that things have not worked. listen: >> you have to be honest and, say all the sanctions and diplomacy so far has not set back the iranian program by in a iota, and that is why i believe that we need a strong and credible military threat coupled
6:35 am
with the sanctions to have a chance to change that situation. >> reporter: romney's got several more meetings before the end of the day and then, after a fund-raiser tomorrow, here in jerusalem where he's expected to raise over a million dollars, from 20 or 30 donors, who gather here and then he heads to poland, for the final leg of his trip, raising money in israel puts him in a unique club of one, no other presidential candidate has come to israel and done a fund-raiser before. >> dave: and president obama has not yet visite israel as the president and we discussed the statement from a foreign policy advisor to romney, about their support of israel, of a unilateral attack, if in fact all of these sanctions don't work in stopping iran's nuclear program, now we are left this morning trying to figure out if there is a meeting between tom donelon, the national security advisor and netanyahu regarding the obama administration's
6:36 am
position on an israeli attack. what is the latest there? >> reporter: sure. well, there was a report in the israeli newspaper today that said that in fact the obama administration's national security advisor in recent weeks let it be known to israeli officials that the u.s. had come up with what they called the contingency plan should diplomacy fail in order to take military action and prevent iran from becoming a nuclear weaponed power but today the administration said that that was not true and in fact there were israeli officious, thouwe n anonymo anonymous, who also said it was false but the cabinet secretary said the meetings and briefings did occur, conflicting reports on what would be a significant new development of american policy by the obama administration. >> dave: boy, that sure would, wouldn't it, carl. >> alisyn: perhaps this week we'll find out more, thanks so much for the update. >> dave: thank you, carl. >> alisyn: to your headlines now, we have a lot more to tell you about including these two u.s. climbers who appear to have plunged to their deaths, off of
6:37 am
a mountain in peru. gill white of new york and ben horn of virginia were on their way down after reaching the summit and fell nearly 1,000 feet off a ridge. their families called for the rescue team after not hearing from the men since july 11th. both were experienced climbers and the investigators plan to look at photos from rescue site to try to figure out what went wrong here. could new green regulations jeopardize our safety, the green business council wants to change the government's design program and the problem is part of the proposal would restrict the use of bullet-proof glass in protecting courthouses, government institutions and preference. and an afternoon of fun turns scary for a philadelphia family, madison mccue and her sister, cassie were playing in the pool and realized their grandfather was drowning, the girls jumped into action and cassidy went for help and madison jumped into pull her grand dad from the bottom and saved him, earlier on "fox and friends" we spoke with the girls about what happened
6:38 am
next. >> i told her to come over and hold his head up and told her to hold his nose and, i did compressions and we did it two times and he started to cough up the water and i turned him on his side. >> i don't know what words would express how proud i am of these two. >> alisyn: she said she learned cpr at a babysitting class in girl scouts and didn't like it at the time because it went on and on, an hour-and-a-half, and it was very dull and now is glad to have the skills. ladies, pump the brakes, believe it or not, women have more road rage than men -- no, we don't believe it! a new possibly cocamamie study, conducted by harris interactive finds 61% of women admit to getting wild or getting enraged, behind the wheel, in comparison only 56% of men admit to getting angry when they drive. we ask you to chime in, let's hear your responses. >> clayton: bobby from south carolina says i'm 54 years old
6:39 am
and have seen -- rarely seen a woman exhibit any type of road rage, it's always men, older money and they remind me of my own dad. the survey is just wrong. >> alisyn: thank you, bobby. >> dave: and beth says a mystery, of course women have more road rage, they have to share the highways and byways, with men. many ladies weighing in, are saying, we're the ones with the kids and trying to work and trying to go home and clean and it is natural we become frustrated through all of this. >> alisyn: sure. i admit i have road rage, i will admit to it but i think more men have it. >> dave: i think it's not close, 80/20, men to women and maria molina, mild mannered, but... >> clayton: all of 5 feet tall but, she does have a lot -- feisty... >> there's a lot of traffic in south florida where i'm from and i have a lot of road rage but thankfully i don't have a car in new york city any more, you don't have to deal with me, just my angry cab drivers every now and then and we want to talk about the weather in new york city. there's a lot of cloud cover across, not just new york city
6:40 am
but most of the albany corridor from boston to philadelphia and it keeps things cool, 71° in central park and highs will climb middle to upper 70s across parts of the northeast. pretty mild day out here, temperatures are actually below what is average for this time of the year, up to 13°, the lowest average across parts of the northeast, very cool out there. as we head west, extreme heat across the central plains, more triple digits and kansas city, 105° your high and 107 in dallas, texas and add in humidity and it feels hotter, there are heat advisories, and heat values could make it up to 115°, extremely hot. make sure to stay safe, everyone. >> clayton: coming up on the show, you built it, thank the government. president obama's comments sparking a new focus in the latest series of political ads, whose message is sticking with voters? pollster frank luntz is here next to weigh in on the new ads.

>> clayton: welcome back, the president sparked a big debate when he said this about small business and government. >> president barack obama: somebody helped to create this unbelievable american system is that a we have that allows you to thrive. somebody invested in roads and bridges and if you had a business that -- you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen. >> clayton: those comments, the focus of a series of political ads. who has the right messaging on this, who better to ask than pollster frank luntz, a fox news contributor and also looks at
6:45 am
the ads in detail. always great to see you. >> and by the way, right here in cincinnati, so i'm at ground zero, of all of the political advertising. these people, when you turn on the tv, even on a sunday morning, obviously, all the political ads, they are already fed up with it. >> clayton: i imagine and one ad being played is this new obama ad, americaing the ca ing tmaki campaign took it out of context. >> watch the red line, the republicans and the green line, the democrats and you'll see the divide as the ad plays, take a look. >> seen the ad. >> if you have business, you didn't build that... >> wait a minute. romney deliberately alter towed meaning of the president's words. actually, he was talking about building infrastructure. and education. not that individuals don't build their businesses. romney's been caught doing this before. another attack ad was called, a a little bit end fast one, for manipulating video of the
6:46 am
president. see the whole tape and decide for yourself. >> clayton: how do those types of things play, frank? do people go to the web site to get the facts or is the damage already done. >> neither, in most cases, if you try to figure out whether an ad that you may or may not have seen or that you don't know of was possibly altered then you try to remember, what was altered and who made the claim and it becomes even more confusing, and so it really doesn't have that much of an impact and now there is a second ad, romney is doubling-down on the issue and the polling we have suggests that that is a smarter approach and let's look at how mitt romney talks about small business owners: >> people who worked hard, started a business. and created jobs. can't believe what president obama is saying about them. >> if you have business, that -- you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> oh... >> unbelievable. >> what an insult. >> i'm outraged. >> i can't believe he just said that. >> i can't believe the president of the united states could say
6:47 am
that i have not made this... >> the government had practically nothing to do with it. if anything government gets in our way. >> now we really know how he feels about small business. >> to rebuild the american dream we need a president who believes in the american dream. >> clayton: well, frank, the red line managed to go off the top of the screen. >> yes, we had a few small business owners in our group and they broke the dial, and i want to put it into perspective. if you are an upper income person you pay significant amount of taxes, the top 1% of americans pay 30% of all taxes, and, in fact, they paid for those roads and paid for those schools and the bottom 50%, only paid 10% of all taxes, so, they are benefiting from the top 1%, you'll never hear that from barack obama and never hear the fact that this business community in america, has paid for this infrastructure, that everybody else has the opportunity to use. >> clayton: you are in ohio and i can't let you go without
6:48 am
asking you how things look with the polling out of that state. we have seen recent polls that do not seem to be pointing too favorably now for mitt romney in ohio. but, here's an overall "gallup poll," when you digest this, the most recent of business owners showing that business owners disaproducing of the job president obama is doing, approve only 34%, and so what are you getting a sense of in the battle ground state of ohio and how important that is? >> i'm getting a sense that ohio voters don't yet connect to governor romney and see him as a problem solver. and they wonder whether he understands their problems. similarly, i see that there is a hostility towards barack obama that he has not solved their problems but at least understands them. and so you have one candidate they like and one candidate they respect and obama has the narrow advantage in that conflict right now. >> clayton: fascinating. frank luntz, in cincinnati, this morning, for us, we appreciate your insights as always, frank. >> thank you. >> clayton: coming up, here on the show, what is better than an

6:54 am
carrots, celery and applapples. >> clayton: and a read a story about lobster, there is an overabundance of lobster. >> dave: why is beer better than wine to cook with in general. >> because it is more complex and has a lot more ingredients and they have a great -- now with sam adams summer ale, wheat malt, barley malt, lemon zest and a historic brewing spice with a cool name, called grains of paradise. >> alisyn: okay, now that he mixed up the special brew, what do you do. >> mix in with the lobster meat. >> clayton: on top... >> pour it over top. >> alisyn: not too much. >> and put it on the roll and garnish with scallops, but a very simple recipe and you can get it at or >> clayton: and you have potato
