hudson when captain sulley sullen burger was forced to land after hitting a flock of geese. >> the more i thought about it i realized we were one more flock away from the left engine being hit. then i thought about the hudson river. that set me back a little bit. >> i feel very happy and fortunate that they are all here right now. this is really scary for a minute. i can image. those passengers are back in l.a. they are giving each of them a $100 meal voucher for the ordeal. >> time for your 5 at 5. the u.s. military saying four members on board a blackhawk helicopter might have died when it came crashing down in afghanistan. u.s. officials believe bad weather caused the accident. they say they cannot rule out enemy fire. neighborhood watch captain who admits he shot and killed trayvon martin could be a free

computer system to change attendance records. >> we started looking into it more and more. the string started leading toward other sprintrings and it starts to look big. >> die know how they did it. how did you hack into the school. >> the changes were made between october and january. the scam wasn't discovered until earlier this month. those were your 5@5:00 headlines. >> the race is on. president obama and mitt romney looking like they are in a dead heat in some of the country's most important swing states. peter doocy is live with more on this. good morning, peter. >> good morning, patti ann. the polls are fresh as can be from monday and tuesday. they show the president and the plump tive gop nominee going slightly to obama. if the election held today 45 percent of florida registered voters would take obama for
another term while 43 percent would vote for governor romney. the president is trending in the right direction leading governor romney by 6 points 35-39. which means the two candidates basically flip flopped their numbers since february when it was romney leading 44 to 38. john kasich a republican just endorsed governor romney yesterday. his support shouldn't move these numbers too much. union household backed the president by a wide margin 51 percent to romney's 35 percent. romney leads with a more specific block light working class voters by the narrowest margins 41 percent to 40 percent. we asked voters in ohio how they would like romney and their senator rob portman. that ticket trailed the obama biden ticket 40-46.
in florida rubio only up by 1 percentage point. it is only hypothetical but gives us an idea what they are thinking a little more than half a year before the general election. peter doocy live in dc, thanks. >> time for a look who is talking. >> this morning it's sarah palin she is sounding off on the gsa scandal secret service and careless spending of tax payer dollars. >> she went on record saying the bus must stop with president obama. >> it's a symptom of government runli running amuck. who is running the store around here. the secret service is playing with the tax payer's dime and playing with prostitutes and checking out who they are guarding. the president for one better beware reof when secrete service
is froekting the family they may be checking out the first lady while froekting her. i don't say that tongue and cheek. this ceo the operation of the federal government has to start cracking down on these agencies. he is the head of the administrative branch and all these different departments in the administration that now people are seeing things that are so amiss within these departments. the buck stops with the president. he has to start cracking down and seeing some heads roll. he has to get rid of these people at the head of these agencies where so many things obviously are a miss. >> sarah palin isn't the only one talking this morning. >> dick morris weighing in on president obama's silver spoon comment. as you might recall the president said he wasn't raised with a silver spoon a comment romney took personally. romney responded yesterday on fox and friends saying he is not going to apologize for his father's success. >> last night dick morris came to the defense of the
presidential hopeful. >> what they are trying to do is stimulate klassen s -- class envy. he wants to stimulate a feeling of victimization by minorities a feeling of aggravation and sympathy between middle income people and wealthy people. a feeling of an tag mitchetagon old people and young people. it's unfortunate that is how he is trying to run. i would point out that mitt romney didn't -- he did not inherit a dime. i often look at people who inherited a lot of money unlike me and unlike mitt romney and say they didn't make it entirely on their own. mitt romney made a big inheritance gave every penny of it away to brigham young university. did he not get a single penny of inheritance. >> well white house spokesman jay carney says the president has been using that phrase for
