make an egg that doesn't scratch the pan. or go to a network like ours that does more than scratch the surface. 7:55 eastern time. c'ya. captioned by closed captioning services, inc >> eric: hello. i'm eric bolling with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, dana perino and greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city and in new hampshire, of course. this is "the five." the new hampshire primary is on. only three hours until the polls close. we've got the latest. and we'll give you our five cents. plus, mitt romney getting some heat for saying he likes to fire people. but is he being unfairly attacked? we will show you the whole tape. you can decide. meet vernin supreme. running for president. not the current ok pant. wait until you hear this guy's
5:01 pm
platform. "the five" starts right now. ♪ >> eric: last night, president obama attended his 70th fundraiser. it was successful. got over $1 million. you are a 99 er, right, sir? maybe not. listen to this. >> the core of what this country stands for is on the line. the basic premise no matter what you look like and where you come from, this is a place you can make if it you try. the notion that we look out for one another. that is at stake in this election. >> eric: vote for me because the core of what america stands for is on the line. are you sure you know what america stands for? i'd call b.s. on that. but what did this line mean? no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from? bob, help me out with this.
5:02 pm
>> bob: first of all, if you don't mind me saying so, my good friend, i wouldn't call the president of the united states by his first name. i wouldn't call george bush by his first name. if you want to do that, and it's up to your conservative right wing tendencies is fine. >> eric: that's his name, right? i think he called himself that when he was modeled in college -- >> bob: anyway, the point is he is exactly right. the republican party made no doubt in any of our minds on the democratic side their interest in reaching down and helping people of color is not racist at all. i don't believe it for a second. but their way of picking them up out of poverty doesn't work, it has never worked and he is right. >> eric: all right. did is say racism? i don't think i said. that >> bob: i want to say i'm not talking about racism. i don't think the republican party made that -- >> eric: what does it mean?
5:03 pm
no matter what you look like or where you come from. >> greg: you can make if it you try is from the mary tyler moore show. this is the no good boyfriend technique. a boyfriend who is basically not a good boyfriend is trying to convince his girlfriend if she leaves him, she will be worse off. he is saying no, no, no, no one will love you as much as i do. you have to stick with me. >> andrea: c'mere, let me show you the back of my belt. >> greg: wow! >> andrea: i'm watching too much lifetime. i'm sorry. i had yesterday off. >> greg: sooner or later the lady or america wises up and moves on. >> eric: do you have a handle on what america stands for? he is at his 70th fundraiser last night. there are those who say once every four days since he announced his re-election. >> dana: it will continue. i'm more troubled by the questioning of people's motives. i understand if he has
5:04 pm
different ways to get the same place but i don't know a single person who doesn't support helping people. they might have a different way of doing it. i think there are several people who could take exception to comment if you don't look the same. tim scott of south carolina, alan west, nikki haley off the top of my head come to mind. marco rubio, no doubt over time the republicans have be able to draw a picture that if you care most about the economy, you can continue the last three years we've had or go in a different direction when it comes to jobs. gallop numbers last week, if i were the democrats i'd be worry they are starting to slip on the message. >> bob: let me say one thing. do you believe for a second that blacks and hispanics in this country believe they'd be better off with a republican congress or president? >> dana: increasingly so. >> bob: there is no evidence when you had both of those, anything with the exception of george bush "no child left
5:05 pm
behind" there is not a single republican initiative -- >> dana: that is baloney. so unfair. the tax cuts in 2001 meant to help people in poverty so they had more money in their pocket because -- this is the point that is most important. republicans and conservatives believe you know best how to help yourself or how to spend your money or what school to send your kids to. >> andrea: i actually think under democrats if you want to get ahead and achieve the american dream, you are worse of. i will tell you, my father's story, coming here $34, six dozen eggs with a mother, my mother who was scared and didn't know what they were doing opening up these restaurants. he could haven't done what he did under a democratic administration with the regulations. i will tell you this. why he didn't take a government handout -- anyone taking government handout is not going to get the american dream. >> bob: your father was a hardworking man but he was white. >> andrea: excuse me, he
5:06 pm
didn't speak the language, bob. >> eric: all right, guys, listening to lefty and righty assess the current situation. >> if the election were held today, depending who the republicans nominate, i think he might well lose in a close election. >> if the election today it would be a landslide loss. let me decide landslide. five to seven points. it would be big. i'm telling you. shhe is toast. >> eric: you're huffing. >> bob: first, though two to make a projection of next year boggling my mind. if he says the election were held today that paul would beat romney or gingrich would beat him in a landslide no are we kidding here? >> eric: the cbs poll showed romney up six points last night. >> bob: i said rush said he didn't like -- he wasn't a romney fan so i assume he is talking about somebody else.
5:07 pm
and what does dan rather know about -- >> greg: obam if the election were today obama would lose because it would trick everybody who thought that was in november. >> eric: generic republican. romney 25 to 30%. what about the 70% they'd coalesce around whoever -- >> bob: get out that out of your mind. >> andrea: do head-to-head matchup and look at the state key to win in the electoral college. barack obama is upside down in ohio. iowa. pennsylvania. >> bob: against who? against who? >> andrea: do you think he would be re-elected? >> bob: absolutely. in a walk. in a walk. >> dana: it would not be a walk. >> eric: we'll change pace. go to axelrod on romney. should he be able to pull the trigger on usama bin laden. play that clip if you will.
5:08 pm
>> eric: governor romney -- >> governor romney, any president would have given the order on usama bin laden. bob gates said it was the postcourageous decision he had seen a president make in 30 years in washington. i'm not sure romney would have made that decision. it was a very courageous decision. >> dana: what an outrageous thing to say. he doesn't know that. he doesn't know -- al gore would have probably done the same thing. a pacifist might have done the same thing. question the motivation. not that i'm running on my record. it's trying to tear down somebody else for a hypothetical that is beyond the pale. ridiculous. >> eric: go ahead. >> bob: i couldn't agree with you more about that. he doesn't have the facts in front of him. but is that any more hypothetical about what rush limbaugh said would happen in an election? >> dana: yes. yes. that is questioning somebody's bravery and courage and saying that barack obama had more courage and bravery and you know what in order to kill
5:09 pm
usama bin laden. it's like i just don't think romney would have done that. how can he say that? >> andrea: ryionny, no -- the i, democrats say this is obama's change. but he didn't change anything. he kept the bush policies in place. the seals -- >> bob: they got more of al-qaeda than bush in three months, in the entire time they were in the white house. >> greg: bob is right. but that is the only change that people like. all the change he promised, the progressive far left stuff he can't talk about because everybody hates it. the only thing that worked for him was conservative principl principles. gitmo. >> bob: do you think everybody hated that you could get college loans at lower interest rates? >> dana: i hope they keep on this. >> eric: generic republicans, that is polling, bob. we're not making this up. >> bob: you've got real candidates. >> eric: mitt romney is beating obama by six points.
5:10 pm
ron paul is about neck and neck with obama. i believe any one of the six candidates flet field will beat barack obama. >> dana: preposterous for rush to say that, why isn't it preposterous to say obama would win? >> bob: he said against ron paul. >> dana: before that, you said that rather and limbaugh don't have a sense of what will happen. if that is true, why do you? >> bob: well, that is a good question. >> dana: then the case is nobody does. we might as well go home. i am saying they are great. >> bob: anybody trying to project these things today or using the word generic -- >> andrea: that's why we have you. >> greg: if we didn't do hypotheticals 45 minutes of the show would be empty. >> eric: we have to go. we have to go. we have a big surprise, i

♪ ♪ >> dana: got to love that. all right, tonight, election night in new hampshire. our special coverage on fox starts at 6:00 p.m. so you don't want to miss that. because we had iowa a week ago. we have new hampshire tonight. greg, we're going to talk about predictions here. what is your top three? in the g.o.p. candidates? >> greg: that is a great question. the locomotive is romney and the caboose is perry. i have romney -- romney is polling at 37. paul at 18. huntsman at 16. but those aren't percentages. in new hampshire the state so small that's actual people. i have romney, huntsman and paul. >> dana: there is still undecided. go to you next. you have predictions. >> i'll bring out the white board.
5:16 pm
dabs not afraid. >> eric: i am going with romney. huntsman second -- white board. >> what are you doing? that is my white board! >> bob: finally a real white board. >> dana: karl rove. >> i would always use a tie and you would be using the white board. >> bob: take it away from him. >> eric: i was going to do the white board -- no, no. >> look, with the white board size doesn't matter. >> eric: mine is bigger. >> you have to compensate. >> eric: sit down. >> dana: karl rove. >> it's now the 5-1/8. >> dana: bringing in karl rove. >> beckel. >> dana: you know andrea. you started the white board. who is your top pick? >> i got, first, you to hold it up so it's above the thing. lousy markers here. if you are going to use a white board, get better
5:17 pm
markers. >> greg: we buy them to smell them. >> bob: we made this the sixth. so take advantage. >> 8i have romney and huntsman and paul in battle for second and santorum and gingrich in battle of fourth and fifth. caboose is perry. >> dana: bob, you think this could be wrong. >> bob: romney is not going to do as well. he is losing support of independents, as is barack obama. both of them. that is something they both have to worry about. romney will win. but the question is by a margin, we have a margin of 20. not near that. 15, maybe. more likely ten. i think the second person is huntsman. here is where i think. paul has been falling every day. i would not be surprised to see santorum go by him. >> dana: would you put paul in the top three? >> andrea: i did on "kilmeade and friends. " and he owns me lunch. not just one at the cafeteria.
5:18 pm
>> there is a mcdonald's across the street. >> dana: one thing you wrote in your column, if romney were to win in new hampshire he would be the first republican to have won iowa and new hampshire for how long? >> no matter what happens the rules are broken. we are making history. nobody ever in an open race for presidency on the republican side won new hampshire and iowa. nobody has ever come in third and fourth and recovered. nobody is going to get, you know, as little as perry will get and recover. nobody will have failed to win one of the first two primaries like paul and recovered. whatever happens, some rule will be broken. >> bob: another rule broken. the fact in new hampshire you have active five candidates. normally you have two or three. you have five candidates vying for -- this makes romney fortunate. he has the people breaking up the vote. anti-romney vote. you wouldn't normally have that. >> that is a good point. it goes back to the question about the margin. if you look at the primary since 1988, the average margin for winner the republican side is an average of just under 13%. so the question is, i mean, we
5:19 pm
got -- we got eric's suggestions here. 32%. >> eric: it's not necessarily what i think. but what we have been talking about here, and wins by 12 or 13. >> that is the average! >> eric: does it make south carolina the deciding factor? florida the deciding factor? >> each has effect on iowa. this will win a person out. they may remain around for a while. >> bob: normally, if gingrich were to end up five, normally that person would get out of the race, right? he is not getting out of the race for two reasons. one, he is newt and he has it out for romney. this is where the super pacs matter. the influence of adelman giving $5 million to spend $3 million in south carolina to run an ad against romney, documentary against romney, newt is viable. with the debates, if you can
5:20 pm
get a plane ticket you can stay in the race for a long time. >> third reason. rules on the republican side mimic rules on the democratic side and they are proportional. >> bob: until end of march, right? >> so if you get 15% of the vote in florida you get roughly 15% of the delegates. >> eric: everyone has money here with the exception of one guy. romney has money, paul, huntsman has his money. gingrich and perry has his own money. >> andrea: does anybody drops out tomorrow? who is the next to go? >> i don't think anybody drops out but one is walking dead. if you look -- i look at this today. every one of the guy has a buy. how much money does it take to keep the staff and pay travel bill for ten days and know you have money on television directly in the case of ron paul and romney or in the case of gingrich and santorum through super -- >> bob: this breaks out when
5:21 pm
you have more than one state in one day. you have to run the multiple state. that is where romney has advantage. with the talk about money, perry is out of money. if i were perry, if he doesn't come in well in south carolina, what does he tell the money people? >> you are right. he has to do well or go home. florida becomes expensive. ten media markets, 11 million voters. these guys are spending more money than they need to in south carolina. some stations you turn on at 6:00 a.m. and off at midnight and you will see no programming. >> and "the five." >> and commercials. >> bob: gingrich spending $3 million on the air. >> dana: we only have 30 seconds. >> super pac is buying station in north carolina and georgia. >> dana: we have an important question. there is a question whether or
5:22 pm
not someone can get in the race. greg thinks about that every night, whether he should get in or not. he goes home to talk to his pet iguana and captain sparkles. >> greg: that is my ferret. >> dana: is there time for greg gutfeld to get in the race and win? >> greg: write-in candidate. >> no. >> dana: all over. >> you can't file for virginia or ohio or florida. >> greg: i have a question. you were called an evil genius, what percentage is ideal? 45% evil? 55% genius? >> as much evil as you can. >> bob: evil is the right word. the problem with february, you are not only missing states but have to get in a lot of states in two weeks. that is difficult. >> before i leave, i want to be clear. bolling, i see you using the whiteboard illegally again you will hear from me. >> eric: wait! >> andrea: i was going say are you going to downsize the
5:23 pm
white board? is smaller better? >> eric: are you claiming credit for the original white board? tim russert. >> no, i merely grabbed control of it before you. >> greg: white board is racist. >> dana: we need a neutral color board. we want to thank you for being the first in-person guest at "the five." >> bob: first person we allowed at the table. >> eric: we have to go. >> dana: want to read this, karl? >> this guy wants to be president obama's competition in 2012. he is a democrat. he likes ponies and he wants everyone in the united states to brush your teeth. that's next! >> dana: all right! ♪ ♪ hello, how can i deliver world-class service

this line. they lost jobs because of bain capital? hurts romney, i mean. >> andrea: the line about him saying i like fire people. that will be cut. that will be used against him. he stepped in it. if i'm romney i will be 100% unapologetic. this is a chance to stand up for capitalism, and earn credit with the g.o.p. voters. look, i would rather have romney taking risks. i don't agree with him on everything. but i'd rather him take the risks with investor money than taxpayer money like obama and democrats do. >> eric: he -- >> bob: he could have turned and said we were successful in some things and others we weren't but at least we're out there doing it. we are elected officials. >> greg: but there is an error with romney saying he likes firing incompetent vote. he loses the incompetent vote. you need the potential to be fired or you don't achieve anything. demonizing the action of firing, a job is pointless if you can't get fired. look at professors with tenure
