blow you away. we've got it covered excuse me, bob. we have a show. we're live. hello, everyone. i'm andrea tantaros long with bob beckel and the others. it's 5:00 o'clock in new york city and this is "the five". >> if you listen to president obama and his allies, you might think they're t angry about thee government shutdown. >> take a vote, stop this farce and end this shutdown right nowe >> republicans put a legislation on the floor that was intend too do shut down government. for them, that's a victory because they're antigovernment ideologues. >> we have a simple message today for speaker boehner.
let the house stop those irresponsible wreckless games and reopen the government. >> pass a budget, end the government shutdown. pay our bills. prevent a economic shutdown. just vote and end this shutdown and you should do it today so we can get back to growing thiscan economy, creating jobs and strengthening our middle class. >> some democrats are happyour about it because they'recla benefitting politically.ng listen to republican congressman nune. >> the democrats are giddy about this behind closed doors. they think that this is going to give nancy pelosi back thes gavel. they are very cocky, very confident. i assume they're look at pollin information and they want to continue down this.ma they want to keep the government shutdown as long as they can and they're encouraging our folks to do it. >> but this is even worse, in a stunning admission from the obama administration, one senior official told the "wall street journal," quote, we are winning. it doesn't really matter to usin how long the shutdown lastshe because what matters is the endi
result. busted. bob beckel, what do you have to, say for yourselves and the y party? n first of all, let me say thats the source of the democrats being in favorth of this is som right wing republican. that's how we lead our storyow here? >> no, no, the "wall street journal" from the white house -- >> i'm talking about the guy, nunez. >> he was the set-up to the "wall street journal." >> oh, i see. i see. is that right?tup >> leaked a quote from the obama administration. >> you should have been a producer. >> here is the point, someone from the obama administration -- >> excuse me. you interrupted my block.e, >> 'cause you're completely wrong. go ahead. >> i would not have started that -- >> do it again. >> now, they have one senior official who said that and i'ma sure that theyve did. i'm sure the "wall street journal" reporter is right. that doesn't mean all democrats feel that way. there's a lot of d democrats upt because women, infant andare children are not getting their formula today.g th national parks are not open. a lot of things are happening.
>> whoa, whoa, whoa. our own green room, you have admitted the democrats want this for political reasons. you have said that. >> i have not said that.ats >> yes, you have! >> what you say is it good politics? sure, it's good politics. >> there you have it.ould >> eric? >> it's not fair to people watching. which women, n.s and childrentci aren't getting their formula, bob? >> the wic program is closed down. >> it's not closed! >> oh, really? >> there is $100 million of surplus in the wic. >> who is delivering it? who >> at some point it may run outs of money and they'll probably find a way to fund it. the democrats got caught with their pants down. everyone is trying to figure out why president obama has been sof cocky, all these speeches. he's very arrogant, very in your face. yes, this is the v republicans . you know why? 'cause he feels this is on the republicans. but guess what? it may have been that the longer
it lasts, president obama's legacy is at risk here. if he goes -- this this goes into the debt ceiling, which i think it will and there is somei sort of, you know, maneuvering going back and forth, this ising going to turn into a democratic nightmare. >> you're basing that on somenig right wing republican and "wall street journal" report? >> president obama's government that can't work. " no, it has nothing to do with that. >> high ranking white housera official --use >> oo. >> unless you think they made il up. >> i don't think they made ital up. d one administration source?. h ranking administration official said this is work towards them. let's go to david plouffe. he says he thinks they gave way too much in 2011 and the only way this would be resolved is when the republicans relent. that is pretty much the strategy that we're seeing. is >> that's true. >> dana, earlier in the week,r bob woodward, said exactly that. the longer this goes on, it will fall directly on the president'a shoulders and i do think the first couple days they were winning the debate.
but this is slowly backfiring. the more information that comes out shows republicans havehows passed bills to fund all of these programs that bob claims aren't being funded. so there is a credibility issue as well. >> i don't think that president obama's too worried yet that the republicans are going to overtake him and all of a suddee they're going to come out smelling like rose at the end of this. i do think this open mic momentn that they tend to have -- i >> can't help it. >> i keep trying to talk to him. he can't hear me.m. >> what i'm going to say is theo always get caught saying what they really believe on background quotes in major papers. remember when the national security advisor, seniorcuri administration official described president obama's foreign policy as leading from behind?desc and then they started to backtrack and say north texas we really didn't mean that. you want to do backgroundit w
interviews, the other one. i also think that there is a way that this could get solved ath little bit more quickly. there was an amendment or question whether or not republicans and democrats agree that federal employees shoulderl get back pay whenever this all gets settled. i think if i were a republican, i would introduce an amendment that says all federal employees should get back pay except for political appointees and anyone at a grade gs 13 or 14 or executive service. that's all the top level people. that would get solved more quickly. >> john boehner was fired up today. he said this is not a game andd. had pretty harsh words for president obama. >> i was at the white house the other night and listened to the president some 20 times explain to me why he wasn't going to negotiate. sat there and listened to the majority leader in the united states senate describe to mee that he's not going to talk
until we surrender. and then this morning i get the "wall street journal" out and it says, we don't care how long this lasts because we're winning. this isn't some damn game! >> it's not some damn game. so bob, if you care about all of these programs, women and children, why wouldn't you passw these republican bills that have come out of the house so that these programs are funded? >> 17 times, 17 times the government has closed downause because of the continuing resolution. neveonr once, never once did thd try to hold it hostage to a major piece of legislation. the republicans have -- >> do you this all the time. you say something that is completely -- >> you interrupt me all the time. >> what do you meanal 17? why did they shut down, bob? >> i assume they had an, disagreement. >> about what? >> i don't know! >> of course you don't know!ou it's always over a political fight.
>> they didn't attach something to the continuing resolution that was a major piece of law a and try to change it. never once.o that's what i said!ne if you can come up with one, then come up with it. >> all 17 had a political football in the middle and theyi were fighting over it. >> show me one of those -- >> really? >> yes. what do you think it was about? they just didn't like each other? >> they negotiated a deal. >> can we talk about a deal.k here is the deal, regardless oft how we got here i saw you on monday, eric, and i was in the charles krauthammer on monday, this is bad strategy. they didn't think it out. senator cruz wrote it.th i don't think rand paul wasegy. going along with it. even indicated the other day, wow. i don't care how we got here, let's figure out how to get outw of here. having said that, i think president obama overplayed hisoe hand. i want to hear tactically the chess move that came across that was available today and that isa johns boehner let moderates knob that he will not default on ourh debt. essentially saying the next fight, i'm not going to have it,
moderates. stay in line, i'm not going to have it. who benefits from him not fighting on something that weomh thought he should have beenomet fighting on all along and not this one? is he going to look like the bigger man? is it beginning to reverse onon democrats? >> it was the best thing he sai> all along and he's right. >> the country for republicans? >> for both, i think. he's going to allow the moderates to join the democratsd to let the debt ceiling rise and they will have a budget, by the way. d what's going to happen, same g thing that happens all the time of the reasonable republicans combined with democrats and, override these right wing nuts.g >> okay. >> can i get dana in here? >> off the top of my head and i could be completely wrong, medicare part d may have been attached somehow to one of these fights.tach funding to the iraq war may have been attached by the democratsth both times to some of thesegh funding fights.i after dana, i want to talk. >> go ahead. middle ofz is in the this, dana.e he's in the middle of the in
republican party. there was a closed door meeting yesterday, some members of congress, according to the "new york times," had harsh words for him. but ted cruz is insistent he's d not backing down on defunding obamacare. he also took to the senate floor and blamed this entire thing on harry reid. >> we are in a shutdown because president obama and the majoritw leader of this body want a shutdown, because they believe it is in the partisan interest of their party to have a shutdown. >> do you think that mostow peoe believe that? >> i think that most people are? just sick of the whole thing ane that they don't think this is in particular about any one persons it's not about president obama, not about ted cruz. they look at this -- i'm trying to put myself in america's shoes -- look back at washington and saying, my goodness. what we want is for washington to run more like a business. lik >> you don't see any business where this actually happens. they knew this was coming for a long time. i thinkey obama is quitee
vulnerable, if you look at the gallup poll, approval rating of 41%. it will be really difficult, once you get into the lower 40s, it's harder to pull up out of that and this fight is not going to help him. >> don't you find itai amazing that the guy responsible for this thing would sit there andg have the guts to say that -- >> hold on. the guts to say? the guts to say what he promised the people who elected him, who put him in office to say -- >> to stop the government, is that what he said? >> he was elected, as were thee 80 members of the house, as were rand paul and mike lee -- >> on shutting down the government? >> stand up to liberals and frankly, to make change for smaller government. by the way, bob, who says the democrats are winning it? number two, who says that a moderate republican -- i don't expect you to answer this, but why would we want more moderate republicans? it's not working.
government is out of control. >> you might have to get something done. >> the republicans may never win another presidency. >> i do think you were right about the premise, that most people out there, i think blame one, both parties. i think this isth starting to backfire on the democrats and there was one t lesson that came out of this. i think it's that the world war ii memorial where all the things that were supposed to happen didn't happen.mor people learned one verygs t important lesson and that is my life is okay without the government. the left wasi assuming people would say, without thet government, my life would comeu to an end and it hasn'tme happened. >> that's true. i agree withnd you. i will say this, there is people like the secret service, we knol all these people, they haven'te. gotten paid. so they're furloughed. they're guarding higpah ranking officials and they're basicallyh getting an iou check. i think that's a little problem. number two is, my point is yours wellmy taken. 800,000 people, it's not going
to make much difference in the big picture. here is the big story, when you have both sides going at it like this, they started here onen y monday and the only thing changing was the number ofrted proposals republicans offered. harry reid got angrier. the president got more direct. he's back out on the campaigngot trail. he thinks he's fighting mitt romney and after a while it's like wait a second. we're on two different planet here. it.is trying to solve the other one ist' saying, i thn i'm winningt 'cause i'm going t stay away from them until the polls make me come back.thin >> can you offer me one bit of you just said this is backfired on the democrats? >> how about the fox news poll -- >> look, if you let me, hang on a second.swer >> please. >> we got a poll, new fox newsne poll shows 80% -- 88% of respondents said what's happening in the country today, the respondents say governmentoy is in charge of the people. so bob, big government -- >> what the hell does that have to do with the closure of government? >> if you look at the polls, you were hoping republicans would be blamed for this thing. they're not across the board!d o
>> look at the polls and ask the question specifically. >> she me one! >> there is! >> there are an overwhelming number of polls. >> the fox news poll, if i'm not mistaken, the number is 46-46. >> that's right! they blame both. >> 46% believe it's thehat' republicans. 46% believe it's the democrats. >> bob, show me a poll that overwhelmingly blames republicans for all of this. and i'm not talking about a couple point margin. >> the "washington post" poll-- over the weekend, went right up to monday, it was a good nine points. >> yeah, but monday -- that was a whole different world. monday was right before this and friday after four days of theafe shutdown, i think there could have been a shift. we'll have to see what the polls say on sunday. >> we picked it up -->> >> i'm looking at the gallup poll today which had president obama down to 41. >> these are apples and oranges. >> i don't think -- i think it's fruit salad. it's all mixed in. >> which is back to where
started with the wiggles today. they have a song about>> fruit salad. >> i know it. ♪ fruit salad. yummy yummy ♪ ♪ . >> when you open the day with four men in unitards, on the way up. that's an interesting story.here but they're super friends. >> we really are infantile. up next, we know now a lot moren about the driver shotow and kild by capitol police yesterday after a high-speed chase that started at the white house. new information about the suspect, miriam carey, and what may have caused her to snap. that's up next. and later, it's facebook friday. so it's your chance to ask us anything you would like.s well, not anything.like send in your questions now on facebook.com/thefivefnc and we'll be right back we'll be rig. the day my doctor told me i had diabetes,
i remember thinking there's a lot i have to do... check my blood sugar, eat better. start insulin. today i learned there's something i don't have to do anymore. my doctor said with levemir® flexpen... i don't have to use a syringe and a vial. levemir® flexpen comes prefilled with long-acting insulin taken once daily for type 2 diabetes to help control high blood sugar. dial the exact dose. inject by pushing a button. no drawing from a vial. no refrigeration for up to 42 days. levemir® (insulin detemir [rdna origin] injection) is not recommended to treat diabetic ketoacidosis. do not use levemir® if you are allergic to any of its ingredients.
the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which may cause symptoms such as sweating, shakiness, confusion, and headache. severe low blo sugar can be serious anlife threatening. ask your health care provider about alcohol use, operating machinery, or driving. other possible side effects include injection site reactions. tell your health care provider about all medicines you take and all of your medical conditions. get medical help right away if you experience serious allergic reactions such as body rash, trouble with breathing, fast heartbeat, or sweating. flpen® is insulin delivery my way. covered by most insurance plans, including medicare. ask your health care provider about levemir® flexpen today. are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo, buddy! i got this.
there are new details on the woman behind the wheel of that car yesterday that smashed into a barricadeut outside the white house and led police on a high-speed chase. it was 34-year-old miriam carey. she was shot dead by police with her one-year-old baby in the back. she's been identified as a dental hygienist, lived in
connecticut, and reportedly had a history of mental problems. her mother believes that she suffered from post par thumb pregnant. carey believed president obama was communicating with her. one of the questions about this, brian, has been what were theere officers supposed to do to determine whether or not she was a bigger threat on hadhe w explosives in the car? did they make a good or bad decision? >> great decision. and the thing is, they're hitting the white house, they're going for the congressional building. e nerve center of the country, a place hit by planes. they're going for the white house. now you have a woman, i knowyou it's just a car and you have plenty of law enforcement therew but you have no choice. this is, to me, i haven't talkes to ray kelly yet or bill brattn two heralded police chiefs, but to me, it's different than goina into our house or your house. you're going for the white house. so you have no idea if this is part of a larger plot.ite the person is not listening. you got to take him out. absolutely.
>> eric, what do you think about the capitol hill police decision to use that force? do you think it was appropriate, overhanded, too much or justmuch right? >> well, yesterday i was kind of speculating it was just -- she panicked and took off. but i red some accounts that they had the kill shot right sh away and realized there was an 18 month old in the car and the held back and they waited. if i agree with brian and i kind of do, they probably should have taken it the first time. she got away, she went a distance, ten blocks or so and then they killed her there. but if you're going to attack the white house, you got totack bring them down. >> bob, do you have a different point of view? this story was unfolding while we were>> on air yesterday, so e didn't really know the facts.he given what you know now? >> i don't know if i do know all the facts. i understand some people say the woman was out of the car runninr
and she was shot.and now, ifñr that's the case, thent is outrageous. if she was in the car, then i think it was perfectly was legitimate. if she got out of car, was o running away from the police and she was shot down without a gun, then i think somebody's got some explaining ton do. >> andrea, any thoughts on thisc part? >> yeah. this is really, really sad. i don't think we know all the we details.l the details. she is running and she was out of the car, a lot of people o said, why wouldn't they have just captured her? wou why didn't they shoot the tires? did they really have to killthey her? then the other side says, trust these police officers. i wasn't there. they're trained to do their jobr and again, if she's getting s close to the white house,e they're thinking are more casualties going to die? are more police officers going to die? who knows now adays? even though it was a women,ugh which i heard, it was a woman, she could have been laced with
explosives. >> tell that to israelis.e >> exactly. >> her mother said she believes miriam suffered from postpartum depression and dr. besser on abc talked about that on his show.au >> women will have mood changes after they have a baby. but 10% of women will haveis. postpartum depression in the first year.nges it's typical things you see with depression. lack of interest in the world, trouble sleeping with appetite but with postpartum depression, you'll have trouble sleeping when the baby sleeps. there may be lack of enjoyment in being a new mom. and you may have guilt about nof being a good mother. and anxiety that something bad could happen to your baby.et >> we don't know. i guess we'll find out more in m the coming days. there was also reports that she suffered from some sort oforts history of mental illness. here we are again, brian,of talking about mental illness and a tragedy -- i mean, in the last year we've it was just in the last year, we've had so many of these.
we have just to find some sort of public policy. i'm not blaming democrats or republicans. as a society, what are we going to do? >> great point. if you look at the oregon shooter, the naval shipyard, the other shooter, they had voices. you watch that special on "60 minutes" when they talk about the fact we are dealing with our mentally ill and putting them in jail because it's no longer the right way to do to put it's no longer right to put them in institutions. so now they're in jail. so now we have an inordinate amount of people in jail or left alone because they are not allowed to be taken -- ñ unfortunately in the car with her that day, has tried to getñn custody of the child and hasrie been very concerned about her health and has voiced it. so you wonder in these situations where the family members are because i'll tell you what, if my family thought l was unstable or thought that i was schizophrenic and taking medication, let's assume they knew and some guy was saying she's not fit, at what point too
people drop in? >> the courts are not fair to men. >> the capitol police did a fantastic job. because there is an 18-month-old wasn't hurt. he could have been in the cross fire and no one elsexd got hurt. there was a high-speed chase through the very busy streets of the capitol and thank god that the -- >> how much busier if there was no shutdown? >> o'brien. >> i'm being honest.us those roads were wide open o because there was no shutdown. >> there you go. there is another good reason. >> i'm not blaming. i'm pointing out. you ask james rosen how long it takes him to get to work right now. he can run in the streets and scream his name and no one answers. >> we have a great block comingd up. eric has got a stack ofquestione which is facebook.com/thefivefnc. our facebook free fovk all is up next.

go, that's on one side. then selig on the other who byig the way presided over this whol era of steroids, turned the other cheek, let barry bonds any mark mcguire and all those guys juice up and hit homersome just to get the eyes back on baseball and now he's supposed to clean it up? yeah, right. >> it's not a very good job and jose canseco deserve has lot of the credit because they put the pressure on the union and said, you're not dealing with the commissioner. you're dealing with me. that brought the union to thcre table. now bud selig could do his job. bob, i want you to weigh in. he says a-rod is suing because major league baseball paid fore this guy who owns biogenesis to be a witness. and they paid to get theis g evidence against him. >> i hope they did. i mean, it seems to be biogenesis has been in the middle -- >> i don't believea 25%. if you have to get this stuff and you can't get it any other
way, buy it, buy it. >> dana, what about integrity? o even if he ends up winning the lawsuit, we all know he cheated! >> i do think there are just way too many lawyers. >> in the world?yes. >> yes.ok certainly in sports and entertainment and things go on and on and come up with schemes and i don't know anything about baseball. so i'm looking at you. save me. >> here we g. roger clemens, i think is a great guy, but he got nailed. i don't care what the courct says. barry bonds, not a great guy.le i don't care what the court a says. he's not the homerun champion. and lastly, alex rodriguez is a guy -- you can put o. j. simpson into that. he might have been found innocent. does anyone thinkt he's innocen? if a-rod has to go outside baseball, he's doing it because he knows he'll lose inside baseball. >> if he's found guilty, can the phillies get that world series ring back? tha >> no. >> that's a long way to go back and barry bonds.
>> just asking. >> okay. we have come to a holt. i think we got to go. bob is sketching. i might as well just go to break. coming up straight ahead, there is a new push to legalize pot in maine. that will get his attention. and some people are fuming because ads are going up to encourage people to choose potgp over alcohol.cour is one less harmful than the other? then that debate when "the five" comes back and we are 16 minutee away from getting bob's sketch
ingefore i knew itas ♪ pop! is one safer than the other?. one ad claims marijuana is less? harmful than alcohol. the ads are up on buses rightl. now and the city as part of a campaign to legalize the weed. eric, you're a weed user. what do you think? >> what? >> i never.at never will. >> i'm only kidding. >> i'll be perfectly honest,t i' when we first started the show, i was vehemently against it and throwing kids in jail. i really embrace the libertarian view on it and don't hate me fo flip flopping on it because i on have. but thite reality is, number onn
this stuff should be decided at the state level. i like that portland is doing it because it shouldn't be a fed decision. that's fine. number two, they should be allowed to put whatever ad theye want on any bus they want. but most importantly, i think people -- our jails are filled with low level, minor pot users and sellers and buyers. they really need to reform that. i think that's the first place to start. >> dana, i know this is not yout field of expertise. k >> baseball, and marijuana, nots really my block. here is what iot think is interesting, bob. the focus groups that they must have done for the advertising, one of the people that they have, at least that i printed out, is like a middle aged woman. and so this is their focusddle group. this is who they think is going to turn out to vote and they're saying marijuana is better for you than alcohol. i don't know if that's necessarily -- i don't know if that's true. it might be less caloric. unless you get theig munchies oy something. mun >> what will you think is theg. most dangerous and whether this is dangerous? >> i think it depends. i thinkyo if you smoke a lot of weed in one sitting versus sit
down and drinking one beer, weed is more dangerous. but if youe do that and drink a bottle of jack daniel, alcohol is more dangerous. but i'm in favor off decriminalizing small bits of marijuana. i'm not advocating an ad o campaign pushing marijuana. i don't like that.n if you're going to legalize it,f legalize it. buts. encouraging people to uset over alcohol, to me, is a step little too far.lcoh >> you got a clean cut guy saying i prefer marijuana. it doesn't make me rowdy ore wreckless. they're also going for the people under 21. so they're trying to do that. i don't think we need that. i don't think you need alcohold targeted for that as well. let me give you the unofficial brian kilmeade study. most people that do smoke pot, it is just the beginning. ands most of the people, i watce their ambition being curtailed steadily and they never reacht their potential. >> the fact is, they ought toon decriminalize small amounts of marijuana, but marijuana is getting so much stronger nowch
than before. >> really? >> much stronger. and i've never been to an area v where there has been marijuana, you said, at a concert and ther hasn't been molly around. the question is, is it a gateway drug? booze is a question -- i could tell you booze killed 44,000 people last year. nobody died from00 marijuana, as far as i know. >> do they keep stats on that? >> the center for disease control says smoking directly causes up to 400,000 -- >> how many of that is marijuana? >> smoking cigarettes is? 400,000 -- >> yeah, yeah. >> what are you going to do? are you going >> no, no. i don't think you should outlawi alcohol. should marijuana be legalized? if it's as strong as i believe it is now,ed when i smoked it, t wasn't anywhere near as strong of the but i think it does leadg to other people getting higher thrills. >> you could subscribe to the>>y study. >> okay. one more thing. >> he'd say that the alcohol --
