>> good morning to you. i am ainsley earhardt. >> i am heather nauert. >> thank you for watching "fox & friends first". >> these are the top stories making news at this hour. anti-american demonstrations continue to spread this morning. in pakistan a new attack on the u.s. consulate. protestors breaking through a barricade and throwing bricks. this follows attacks on u.s. consulates and other cities in pakistan in recent days. in beijing the car of the

>> police in arizona can face one of the key parts of the immigration law after more than a few years on hold a judge ruled in favor of the show your paper provision. it allows them to question the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally. they still have a say so in what happens to illegal immigrants. the president revealing to david letterman the real star of the dnc. >> it was terrific. it's funny how much people realize michelle is better than me. i have to go through the week, your wife was really great. you were okay. >> that is why they call it the better half. that is your 5@5:00.
>> the president also taking time on letterman to respond to the leaked video where he talks about 47 percent of the country that doesn't pay income taxes. is this as video he talks about he believes wealth should be redistributed. he is live in washington with more on the dueling controversial videos. good morning, peter. >> good morning, heather. a video that has been around since 1998 is making waves because it featured a young barack obama because he believes in some redistribution of wealth. >> i think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pull resources and facilitate some redistribution because i actually believe in redistribution. at least at a certain level to make sure that everybody has a shot. >> at the time 14 years ago mr. obama was trying to make an
argument for more efficient government. mitt romney was out claiming the thoughts behind his comments that just surfaced about 47 percent of americans being dependent on government. >> we were of course talking about a campaign and how he's going to get close to half of the vote i am going to get half of the vote approximately. i hope i am going to get 50.1 percent or more. we have two different views about america. the president's view is one of a larger government, there's a tape that just came out today where the president is saying he likes redistribution. i disagree. i think a society based upon a government centered nation where government plays a large errol redistributes money that's a wrong course for america. >> in response to that the president said this on the late show. >> one of the things learned as president is you represented the
entire country. and when i meet republicans as i am traveling around the country theired working family people who care deeply about this country. mikes peck tation is if you want to be president you have to work for everybody not just for some. >> the rnc was quick to criticize the fact that he appeared on the list giving top ten things he should be doing instead. number 6 meeting with netanyahu. who is talking and a lot of people are still talking about those 47 percent comments. >> wondering why there's such a controversy here and here is how he break it is all down. if you say the federal
government should do more social engineering than the obama administration is currently doing then you want a nanny state. you want a nanny state you are not going to vote for romney. self reliant god. if i am governor romney i run with this all day long. i have the stats to back it up. right now the federal state governments are spending nearly a trillion dollars a year those are payments other than social security or medicare. more than 47 million americans are now receiving food stamps. that is a record. nearly 9 million are on federal disability. another record. more than 1 million americans 35 percent of the population are living in a house receiving some sort of welfare. i am assuming he wants to stop the madness so they can nature own bills.
romney should be pointing a finger at president obama saying he wants a welfare state the president does. he is well on the way to creating one. that is what the stats show. this is so this is so crazy i should say it's painful. >> the economy is what sean hannity is talking about. last night he went head to head with the former chairman of the white house council of economic advisors under president obama. here is their explosive exchange. >> we have no jobs in america. you want to know why? give me all of the caveats private sector this month but not this month. >> the last two years. >> americans working since he became president, fact. >> that's true. because he came in in a terrible recession in the last two years. >> i know. and so did george bush. he said he cut the deficit in
half. did he do it? >> the deficit is not cut in half, no. >> we have added to the debt you know why. >> has any president gotten us 6 trillion in debt or anywhere nero bam ma? >> has any president inherited a rez -- >> reagan. inflation 21 and a half percent. unemployment double digits inflation out of control. >> the job losses in the recession that reagan inherited i gree he did inherit a recession were nowhere near the job losses obama inherited. >> 6 trillion in debt 15 million more americans on food stamps, we have 1 in 6 americans living in poverty. we have in a three-year period people lost 40 percent of the net worth house values have gone
down. >> also telling hannity americans are better off now than they were four years ago. nobody should be able to trade the situation now than they were four years ago. no debate on this issue, and that is the weather. >> time for the first degree weather update with maria molina. hi there. are things a lot quieter there today? >> we had storms from the northeast down into parts of the south with over 115 reports of severe weather most coming in the form of damaging wind gusts. we have some cooler air that will be moving on to portions of the northeast. right now you have the cool air across portions of the flakes like -- great lakes. as we continue our track westbound a little warmer this morning than it was yesterday across the city of inma'minneap

what you heat has nothing to do with how better you are going to feel. it's really the hydration and the fluid. it has to do with the amount of food you have mentd well hydrated and eat a lot of food. you swallow gum they are sitting in your stomach for 7 years. we don't go off to high school with a pile of gum in our stomach. >> thankfully you have the acid in the stomach that is going to break it down and it will not stay in the system for 7 years. >> so it's okay to do that. >> you don't want to do it too often. >> we talked about mary poppins a spoonful of sugar. >> a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. all of the myths will holding your breath and everything else. it is not right.

>> at grocery store care yoke key you may not expect much talent. but listen to this. ♪ and i will always love you >> a random girl stepping up to the mic blowing everyone away with whitney houston's "i will love you." the singer from the philippines is quickly gaining fans on youtube. this video had nearly 800,000 hits in three-days. those are your 5@5:30. >> i love it. >> since when do they have grocery store care yoke key anyway. >> mitt romney fires back after the leaked fundraising video. obama is facing his own after an old video recording. >> there is a new poll out that shows the race deadlocked
nationally. both candidates are trying to exploit each other's weaknesses. the president piered on david letterman targeting young voters making the most of mitt romney's latest challenge. i don't know what he was referring to but i can tell you this, when i won in 2008, 47 percent of the american people voted for john mccain they didn't vote for me. >> that was reference to the secretly recorded video from fundraiser back in may. he talked about 47 percent who are dependent on the government may back the president no matter what. one change for the romney campaign in the wake of that video fund raisers are now open to the press. at an open fundraiser he went after the president about a recording made in 98 when he
spoke of redistributing the nation's resources. >> the trick is to figure out how do we structure government systems that pull resources and facilitate some redistribution because i believe in some redistribution at a certain level to make sure everybody has a shot. >> that brought this response from romney last night. this idea the president has of redistributing i know there are people in the country who wanted to have the government take from some to give to the others. they would like to be the others on the receiving end of that. feel a redistribution model makes sense. the president some years ago says he favors redistribution. i don't. instead i think the role is to help those who need help. all of this ups the anti of a presidential debate. the first one two weeks away.
>> it is time for a look at who is talking. the u.s. embassy still the big talker. days after the ambassador to the united nations susan rice call the americans of spontaneous acts. the white house seemed open to other explanations. >> take a listen to this. jay carney is acknowledging the investigation underway could now offer an alternative version of events. listen to this. based on additional information that includes all information, we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a preplanned or pre-meditated attack. there is an ongoing investigation the fbi is investigating and that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. >> fox news contributor john bolton is talking about the situation in libya. he responded to a report the
administration may have received a warning about the attacks in advance. >> this is important information if it's true which means they failed to heed the warning and put the ambassador and three of the colleagues in a desperate security situation. this is the white house story unravelling right in front of itself. what they are trying to do is hide behind the fact that an fbi investigation is pending in libya. the idea that the administration has returned to terrorism as a criminal law matter rather than war is extraordinarily dispushidis -- disturbing. >> they were surprised that means one of two things either a massive intelligence failure or they believe the things were benign. before you leave the house you need to get a first degree
weather update with maria molina. >> we had a lot of severe weather with a strong cold front that moves across the east yesterday. reports of roof damage, tree branchs down and even power outages from new hampshire down to the state of florida. widespread area being affected by the scrunch. it will be a lot quieter out there. we have lirnging showers across main and also coastal areas also much quieter. the drier air will be moving on in and you will notice sunshine and actually pretty cool temperatures moving on in over the next couple days. keep that in mind in the northeast a little breezy today. otherwise west ward very dry quiet out here across parts of the plains. we will have gusty winds across parts of the northern plains that could keep an elevated fire darrening. i p want to show you high temperatures for today in the 60s across parts of up state new
york. >> drying out after the rain. >> it is time to entertain this. actress tory spelling is recovering after she under went emergency surgery over the weekend. she was hospitalized for c section complications following the birth of her fourth child. she remains in hospital and is resting comfortably. >> maria terry and nikki manaj talking about the feud. she convinced her the fighting wouldn't be good for the show so they buried the hatchet. >> jennifer aniston pregnant the 43-year-old supporting a huge baby bump. >> the ad mocks aniston's celebrity status so tabloid rumors are always about her interesti having a baby. >> stories making headlines at this hour. the joy of scoring a touchdown the falcons woifrn the broncos

they send a letter to the district and they are going along with aclu request and ban the gender specific activities whether it's the popular father daughter dance the popular mother son dance. they say these traditions be long in the 1950s and any activity that assume boys want to play baseball or girls want to go to dances that is scratched. >> the mother thought the daughter would lose out on this. >> i thought the federal law had an exemption to protect the parents who want their kids to be able to go to school or dances with the mother or father. >> the federal law governing gender discrimination is title 9. title 9 does have an exception for some types of gender distinctions. that's why we have the boy scouts and girl scouts okay to have fraternities at public universities and have sororities. >> a boy's bathroom and a girl's
bathroom. >> but the rhode island law doesn't have the same exemption. the school district cave nude this the superintendent sent out a letter without holding any kind of public hearing or public forum. the people most affected the parents and students are angry they didn't have any input into the decision. the aclu says: >> there is an exemption to federal law. i thought federal law would crump sta trump state law. >> it can especially if it's a school getting funds from federal government or state government. you have to be in compliance with both laws. let's read another statement. the school's superintendent in cranston rhode island. we will move forward and do what we are supposed to do. hopefully the law americas will listen to what the public has to
say. we are expecting some sort of public hearings on this. there's a real out cry. a lot of people are upset about this. >> it's an election year. this has become a hot local issue. there's a guy running for senate there he has made it a center piece of his campaign. if you get me elected i will make the law. one of the providence papers were running an on-line poll 97 percent in opposition. >> that one girl can stay home if she doesn't like it but gis people get offended. giving us the breakdown of this one. >> or take your grandfather or take another man in the neighborhood that you are close with. >> thank you, heather. it is now 48 after the hour. still ahead, frightening new numbers about america's waist line and where it is headed. plus this might not be exactly what one teenager had in mind for off roading. look at that. check in with steve doocy to see what's coming up on "fox &
