>> they are going to do everything they can to destroy mitt. we heard early on what their strategy was. it was kill romney. that's the memo from their campaign. not when i'm next to him, you better not. >> eric: by far, the most popular stop on "the five" trail is this. >> who are we missing again? oh, no! oh! >> eric: i don't know. i have no idea where to start that. that is so compelling. that video is so compelling, beckel. a lot of people want to know if that was your real hair, was hair flopping over, what was that? >> bob: it was my suspenders. >> greg: bumper stickers. >> bob: i may be ugly, but i do have hair. that i guarantee you. you want to talk about something else? >> dana: we should talk about that for a second.
there is a slight dispute, because the video is plain. i didn't hit the exact target but i must have hit it hard enough or hit it on the way back, i got you. >> bob: ridiculous. >> dana: you were taunting me before that. >> bob: do we have to watch this thing? >> dana: yes. >> bob: you triggered it. >> greg: your legs are the sexiest things. >> kimberly: you could use nair on those. >> eric: by the way, we'll talk a lot more about the fourth of july special we aired yesterday later in the show. let's start with the top, though. kimberly, you pointed out, back on this. it's important. it's a tax already. >> kimberly: listen, he is delayed. delay of game. throw a flag on it. i would have liked to come out and get ahead of the story, one making the charge saying this is a tax, talk about the numbers, what it's going to do to american people, to the economy, to the middle class.
instead of being behind the story. not going so far from others who called for an extreme makeover to the campaign, advisors but you got to get after it believing november be here before you know it. >> bob: that wasn't question of being delayed. his campaign came out right away and said it was not a tax. it was in fact a fine. so what romney is doing is correcting his own campaign, which the "wall street journal" pointed out exactly light. >> kimberly: is that a good idea? >> bob: no. it's something that romney is known for. campaigns come up with the ridiculous statement. he should direct it or -- >> eric: fair enough. the campaign probably made a mistake on that. but can we weigh in on ben lebaux on cnn saying these words, these words. "at no point did any of the government lawyers say it was a tax," referring to the arguments that they gave in front of the supreme court. >> dana: he said it with a straight face. >> eric: yeah. we have documents proving him -- dab >> dana: yeah, it's not a secret document. it's the brief they filed with
the solicitor general. tuesday we had a sound bite from valley jarret who said yes -- valerie jarret who said yes it's a tax. the next moment they say it's not a tax. to me, both campaigns confused themselves. nobody is talking about what kimberly said how will it affect us? the assertion of our rights? the destruction of the private market and what it doz to doctors? everybody talks about us and patients. what about the doctors? how are they supposed to deal with 30% more volume and no more money and have to do it with less efficiency and not as good quality? >> eric: are haircuts covered under obamacare? >> greg: not that haircut, i'm afraid. you r you talk about my -- are you talk about my haircut? mine looks like the head of the eraser, head of a pencil. >> kimberly: they will send you to the death panel next. >> greg: people are saying romney is flip-flopping. the fact is, you've got to cut romney slack because it's not
his bill. it's obama's bill and obama didn't know what it was. the romney a flip-flop, obama is a crock. pun on shoes. mind you of the taste great, less filling debate of the '80s. what you were left with is -- >> dana: where's the beef? >> eric: wow! >> bob: excuse me. that was my line. >> dana: i know. that's why i set it up. >> greg: i want to go back to what dana said. romney has to focus on the big picture. discussing the semantics of the words. it's like discussing dorsal fin of a great white shark while it's eating you. focus on the shark. the universal healthcare that could destroy the healthcare we have. >> bob: the "wall street journal" said he missed an opportunity to get out front on this. that is right. romney missed a number of opportunities. the other problem with the healthcare bill, depending which poll shows favorable to unfavorable but 60% considers this is a big issue.
>> dana: on that, the gallup poll came out today said more people think the healthcare bill will make the economy worse. it was 46 to 32% today said it would make the economy worse. i think president obama has a significant problem to convince people now that it's here to stay, people are not happy about it. >> eric: this is an interesting blog written by crystal this morning. he asked is it too much to ask mr. romney to get off autopilot and actually think about the race he is running? trying to light a fire under the man. does he need it? >> kimberly: they're stoking the fire. i get it. sometimes you get overcampaign, overmanaged by your handlers and your advisors. you are so worried about making mistake. you are missing a moment to be able to jump in and own the story and look like someone who is a candidate who knows what he is doing. romney does know what he is doing. he has a tremendous background when it comes to financebe, business, numbers and the economy. why not lead with that? lead with your strength to
show you are somebody looking out for the people. that is what he is talking about. >> bob: you are assuming it's a strength. a lot of us don't think it's a strength. some candidates you can't light a fire under him. romney has a personality he is just not somebody -- if he tries to do that, it's going to look phony. it's not who he is. democrat is why he needs -- >> kimberly: that is why he needs a v.p. >> eric: later on in the blog, adopting a prevent defense. it's only the second quarter and you're not especially ahead is dubious enough as a strategy. meaning that the football game, we're not winning. time to go on the offense. first, where is the offense for romney? >> dana: there is a lot of frustration built up across the country. okay, now we consolidated, we have our candidate. they are ready and waiting and they want something more. it could be the ebb and flow of the campaign. obama had had a terrible june. romney had a good june. not just in fund raising but in the overall press. july could end up being a decent month for president obama. then you get to august.
you get to the conventions and boom, we have a race. that is when things will start to matter. >> greg: i think, you know, people might be tired of charisma. that is what you say when you are trying to make yourself feel good. maybe they don't want somebody with a huge personality. >> bob: that is a campaign slogan. dumpy guy and after lindsay screwed up not a word said but "tired of charisma?" >> greg: memorable phrases. he needs a speech writer in there to drop things like i'm a flip-floper, obama's a crock. see if you had somebody writing that kind of -- >> kimberly: you gave it to them for free. >> greg: that is free. >> eric: part of that was explaining talking about footwear. >> bob: good point. you know a lot about this. i don't think his speech writing is good. do you? >> dana: it's getting better. i think it's getting better. i think it was a 24-hour news

indication it's working against romney. in ohio, where he has got to win. without ohio he doesn't get elected. obama is now ten points ahead. >> kimberly: that is a problem. i agree with you. i'm telling you, you will see something different once he has a v.p. this is making a case to have somebody get out there and get on the offensive, not afraid to attack president obama on his policies. someone like christie or even like jindal per se, that has a long history of not being afraid -- you haven't met him. i'm sure he is a lovely gentleman. bobby. right? >> bob: vice presidents have little to do with elections. >> kimberly: i disagree. you need someone like sarah palin. >> dana: i can't believe that bob didn't get invited on the betting on america tour that president obama started. that is right up your alley. >> bob: i know. >> greg: do we have a baby seat for george stephanopoulos on the bus? >> dana: no, he's in the tank. >> bob: sack against george?
