the senate defeat add $35 billion measure that would have created jobs for teachers, first by republicans and two democrats. nbc news correspondent kel yo o'donnell is here. for the second time in two weeks every singling republican in the united states senate has chosen to obstruct a bill that would create jobs and get our economy moving again. give ug the arguments on both sides that went, i guess, until late last night. >> if you get angry at congress, maybe you'd get some relief knowing that they worked until 2:30 in the morning dealing with two series of votes. one took a narrow slice of the president's jobs bill. it was money for teachers and first responder, federal money to go to the states to either save or protect those jobs or create jobs for teachers. democrats voted for it with the exception of ben nelson of
7:01 am
nevada, one from arkansas and joe bennett. in lieberman's case he said the country needs debt reduction, not something that would add more money that the super committee has to find ways to cut. ben nelson said it's really more of a stimulus kind of thing, not something that would create private sector jobs. that was the main argument against it from those democrats, and it's the same argument that republicans share. it was not going to actually work to create more jobs. they felt private sector emphasis should do that and they believe it should be a tax increase because it would be a narrow piece of the millionaire's tax that would have been included in this if the one chunk passed. it was an idea that both parties and the president had supported. but in this political environment that failed too. it was a very narrow idea of taking back this rule in the tax code to withhold income tax from
7:02 am
contractors. hadn't gone into effect here. something that businesses talked about wanting to see changed. gridlock on this issue, doesn't look like the president's jobs bill in the big picture or more narrow slices has much future at the moment. chris? >> thank you for that update. after moammar gadhafi's violent death, what's negts for libya and what will the u.s. role be? nato's governing body is deciding whether to keep air patrol overhead until thinking stabilize. hillary clinton calling on them to move swiftly toward democracy. >> the death of moammar gadhafi has brought to a close a very unfortunate chapter in libya's history but it also marks the start of a new era for the libyan people. >> joining me now, nbc chief
7:03 am
correspondent richard engel. good to see you, richard. what is next and how difficult is it going to be? >> it depends on what happens on the ground but it shouldn't be that difficult theoretically. they have liberated their own country with nato help. there's only 6 million people living in libya. the country is exploding in oil. it's probably more difficult to be tl mayor of new york than the president of libya. they certainly have more money. it's not that difficult of a job. >> but you have all these tribal differences. >> yes, but they're not religious difference or ethnic differences. there are tribes and many countries have tribes and they get along very well. gadhafi aside from being a dictator was fairly skilled at playing them off each other and balancing their needs. that's how he stayed in power aside from using force. so it's not an insurmountable thing. >> what do they want from the united states if anything? >> they want business. they want to open up to the
7:04 am
world. they want to send libyans to colleges in america, they want to have normal relation ships with the rest of the world and not live in this crazy cult of gadhafi where they've been existing for the last 42 years. >> let's talk about what happened yesterday. you and i had sat here and we hadn't gotten u.s. confirmation. >> we know a lot more now. >> we know a lot more now. what did happen about how he was captured and killed. >> one analyst told me effectively he was killed by lynch mob and he was killed by his captors who executed him. it started out that gadhafi was with a few trusted guards in sirte, his home town, which was a very stupid place to go. >> he was surrounded. >> he was completely surrounded. 500 miles from the nearest international border. he went there because perhaps he
7:05 am
felt he was close with his loyalists. it was district number two. there's been fighting, intense fighting. people wonder, why so intense in this one neighborhood for reasons that are all too clear now. the fighting was closing in on gadhafi, so his loyalists decided to make a run for it and gadhafi decided to try to escape to another part of the city. some people left in cars. it appears now that gadhafi may have left on foot. the knnato strike happened. a gun fight happened. gadhafi was apparently injured in that gunfight, took refuge in this drainage pipe, was pulled out of the drainage pipe by the rebels, the rebels slapped him around, insulted him, pulled his hair, shot him at least one more time again, loaded him into a car, and then executed him with a gunshot -- bullet to the head. >> so much more ahead to see how
7:06 am
this all plays out in libya. richard, thank you so much for coming in. now, the death of moammar gadhafi adds to president obama's growing list of high-profile security victories starting in may with the death of osama bin laden. they're responsible for more than any others over the past 25 years, still republicans have been reluctant to give the president full credit. >> i give the president and the administration credit. the fact is we could have ended this conflict a lot earlier if we had used the full weight of u.s. air power instead of leading from behind and we would mtd have the 30,000 wound and hundreds if not thousands who are killed. >> i'm joined now by dick, the democratic party chairman of south carolina and carol swang. let me start with you. a lot of republicans had more praise for france and britain after the death of moammar
7:07 am
gadhafi and, in fact, some had to be reminded they amended their statements to say, you know, american service men served well. they obviously were behind the tomahawk missiles and the air refueling. why does the president not get more credit? >> i think that the congress should be debating the fact that this president has involved us in so many foreign conflicts without congressional approval. and so members of congress, i think, the republicans are missing an opportunity here. it may seem like victory, but we don't know what the unintended consequences will be of the arab spring. we know that a lot of african libyans have been killed, or been killed and not even in libya is celebrating, nor do we know if the country is ready for democracy. >> well, do you believe that they would be better off, that these countries would be better off continuing under the rule of these dictators? >> i think that stability is important, and what we have done is destabilize the entire region.
7:08 am
we don't know what the consequences will be. and with israel less safe. i mean many people are less safe because of the destabilization of the middle east. we don't know if this is something to celebrate. it will take time. but in the meantime this president in involves us in so many conflicts. >> well, dick, our recent poll shows the president actually gets high marks on foreign policy from the american people. do you think this second-guessing by the republicans is smart or even fair? >> well, i don't think it's fair, and i would disagree with your other guest. i think that the brutal dictator of libya has met a brutal end and good riddance, and i think that what's happening in the middle east is democracy is coming. it's messy, there's no question about it, but this president stepped in and helped take a brutal dictator down, and now we have to help that country, libya, put the pieces back together again. as was pointed out a moment ago, it's a very small country.
7:09 am
this arab spring can be a good thing if we assist these countries moving into democracy. now, you know, the republicans, mitt romney, was very critical of president obama's role in libya. he was too aggressive. then it wasn't aggressive enough. this morning again you hear mitt romney and other republicans praising him. unwilling to give him credit. this is the problem. they're unwilling to give them credit or assistance. we don't need to bedebating anything in congress about this. we ought to be as aggressive as we have been and we have to let the pakistanis know if they continue to assist al qaeda and the taliban, that they will -- we'll deal with them in much the same way. >> well, clearly, carol, there can be some disagreement about, for example, when we should have gone in. you're not sure we should have gone in at all. but you have on the republican side. michele bachmann who didn't know he was in libya. you have rick perry who jokes
7:10 am
about pakistan as the pakistani country and you have herman cain with this becky, becky, becky, stand, stand, stand. there are places in the world that are critical to the american national security interests. can they be taken seriously? >> i'm not going to defend any of the republican congressional candidates on this issue. i think the american people node to be concernied about the fact that we're promised billions of dollars in foreign aid to nations, money that we don't have, money that we've borrowed from china while americans suv every. i think president obama would be better off focusing on the domestic problems rather than trying to be a liberator of the middle east when i think all he's doing is destabilizing the region and creating unnecessary chaos, and we should be focusing on those missiles that are missing and the fact that we don't know, you know, what the future's going to hold. >> well, its is one of the concerns, dick, without a doubt.
7:11 am
you have all these missiles that were just basically left. reporters said they could have basically walked in and taken them. so is there a little bit of a tight rope for the president to walk where the u.s. president should be going forward? >> absolutely. i don't think there's any question about it. we should secure the missiles to make sure they don't get in the wrong hands. we have to make sure we render any assistance to a legitimate libyan government in rebuilding this country. they've got plenty of money. we need to insist on doing and make sure that radical islamics like al qaeda don't play a role in that. we can do that. we can't come back to this country and shut our eyes to what's going on in the world. we need oil. that's where it is. we need -- we have strategic interests in the middle east and all over the world and this president understands that. every president since teddy roosevelt's understood that when we withdrew after world war i. it was devastating to 'lou nazi
7:12 am
germany to rise. the consequences thereof are not good. so this president is doing the right thing. mitt romney, rick perry, the rest of those folks are just floundering. >> so much to talk about going forward. thank you so much. nur details are surfacing in the biz czar story of the escaped exotic am manimals. he had bite marks on his he. he was deeply in debt. he has 35 large cats. officials aet the club zoo say they cost $17,000 each a year to care for. the six surviving animals are getting comfortable at the zoo at their new home. beef burgers. hearty chicken and noodle casserole. so easy, you just need campbell's cream of mushroom soup to make them and a hungry family to love them. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do.

this time i've got the right guy. last time it was me. >> michele bachmann used a stop to take a shot at harry reid. >> yesterday senate majority leader harry read summed up quite nicely what i call the fantasy economic thinking that is dominating washington, d.c. when majority leader reid said, and i quote, it's very clear that private sector jobs had been doing just fine. that statement could be entered into ripley's believe it or not. >> and he's the rising star of the gop. he's been talked about for vice president. cuban-american florida senator marco rubio. rubio confirmed his parents came to this country in 1956 but said, quote, i'm going off the oral history of my family. all these documents and
7:18 am
passports are not things i carry around with me. >> and joining me now -- jose, does this hurt him or could it be an honest mistake? >> this is a fascinating story and i'm often fascinated to see how different segments of our communities analyze storying like this. chris, you're of a hungarian slovakian background. let me ask you a question. when did your parents arrive, month, day, and year. >> march 1906. i looked at the papers my sister got from ellis island, so i cheated. >> that's good. >> and before that, on my father's side, 1898. >> okay. well, that's great. because you know more about your ancestors' arrival to the united states than most u.s.-born people of parents or grandparents that came from another country. the fact of the matter is it's
7:19 am
fascinating to see this because from the latino community's perspecti perspective, the reaction is marco rubio has controversial positions on reform and the d.r.e.a.m. act, et cetera. yet we're focused on something that for most immigrants is a reality. we get our information about our parents' backgrounds and when they arrived -- >> you don't thing they'd remember if they were before or after castro? >> not before checking papers. >> let me play -- >> according to him -- go ahead. >> let me play his 2012 campaign ad. >> i'm marco rubio, and as the son of exiles, i understand what it means to lose your country. >> it was 2010, obviously. >> it's perfect. if i get -- you know what? he is the son of exiles because they went to cuband a left after the castro regime was in power.
7:20 am
>> this is what he ran on, dana, isn't that the point? >> it may be one thing how it plays in the latino community, but this is the fundamental narrative of this man's political rise and why he is so attractive as a politician and why he's very seriously mentioned as a possible if not likely vice-presidential nominee. you saw what happened to al gore when people jumped on him about exaggerations in his past. now, it doesn't mean he was lying about his parents' background. maybe his parents were lying to him. maybe the whole thing is a misunderstanding. that doesn't matter. what happens is the fundamental narrative of this man has now been turned upside down. >> dana, you're equating i invented the internet with someone who is the son of exiles or immigrants not knowing by checking the papers of his parents what day they arrived. >> i will tell you this. it's a weird compare sob because
7:21 am
we don't have many hungarians who are watching, but people know who immigrated pre and post ps 1986. that was a critical year in hunga hungary. and castro, pre and post his castro, this is not a random year. this was a defining moment in cuban history. >> they didn't leave because of the castro revolution. castro was in mexico at the time. >> dana, dana, dana, dana. >> they left because they were ordinary immigrants. it's a fundamentally different story. it doesn't mean it's a bad story. it means he's much more like most latino immigrants whose families ka imfor economic reasons. >> i'm glad we're bringing up the fact that before 1959 there was not a wave of cubans trying to leave the island even though there was a dictatorship in place and that's a wonderful conversation to have on another day. let me tell you something. if your parents tell you that
7:22 am
they left cuba permanently because of the cuban leadership, that's what they go on. if they stay for two times and then decided once they saw the reality after they immigrated to the united states because before castro you could do that, go both ways, they realized they would want to stay. that would make it an exile. i'm not saying it's good to know exactly when your parents arrive if you're going to base your political campaigns on it. i'm just telling you that for many immigrants that's not as big an issue as for example that he's against immigration reform and the d.r.e.a.m. act. >> i guess i'll go back to the point, he's not somebody sitting around a dinner table, you know, having a conversation. i guess he's somebody who's running for high office. he was running for u.s. senate and many people were talking to him about being vice president of the united states on this ticket. >> and think it can be justified
7:23 am
and explained as it just was. there may be no malice at all or anything wrong with what he's presented to go back to the al gore comparison. >> what his parents told him. >> he could explain, you know, his suggestion that he had helped to create the internet. he could explain that he helped to inspire the story -- love story, but it became a part of gore's character to say he had these embellishments. i just thing as a matter of politics when you have this fundamental narrative undermined in this way that it's going to come back and haunt him. i'm not quarrelling about whether he should have asked his parents. i'm just saying when it comes out this way, this is something that's going to haunt him for a while. >> well, we shall see. we shall see. he is definitely a rising star in the republican party. thank you so much. of course, you can watch jose week nights on telemundo's

as of right now congress hasn't passed any plans to create jobs. president obama says his plan will create 2 million jobs while republicans say their plan is better. >> we think our package can create over 5 million jobs. we are ready to discuss it with the president, and we welcome having him come down. >> i want to bring in glen kessler who's a fact checker for "the washington post." glen, good morning. >> good morning. >> so are all these claims just guesstimates or where do they get these numbers? >> i looked into this specifically and asked rand paul's senate office where they came up with that figure. it's based on studies but all these studies have to be taken with a grain of salt. it's often guesstimates upon estimates.
7:28 am
it's a case of most of these jobs would be jobs created over the next ten years which is not going to affect anyone or help revert a recession which is what the president is trying to do with his jobs bill. secondly, there's one provision that in theory would do something quickly, but, you know, i looked at the estimate of how they came up with jobs and they used the same meth methodology that says that the stimulus actually created 4 million jobs, so my argument is, you know, you can't have your cake and eat it too. you can't really sit there and say as republicans do that the stimulus created no jobs and then cyto cite a study. >> how do you rate it? >> you know, i have a four#sd n
7:29 am
pinocchio scales. i gave it three. >> if it holds right it's basically the same method ol'y with the stimulus plan. so is there any methodology that's worked that history tells us, gives us a little better idea? >> well, i mean that's a good question. you could go back in time and look at, you know, what possibly happened. and there have actually been about six or seven different studies that have looked at what the impact of the stimulus was. the number i cited was a congressional budget office number and that's the number used. there are other studies that show less of an impact. i mean frankly we don't really know. you know, ultimately it involves a lot of guesstimates and it involves a lot of assumptions and depending how you dial those things on the computer will make a difference as to what the

7:42 am
>> the campaign needs to raise the money. that's the big reason for this. but they also really do want to engage these high-profile figures, especially in the latino community. and they can go out and talk about the president's record. they can defend the president because there is some concern among latino groups that he's not done enough, that there is no immigration reform, that these deportations continue. so i think that it's an effort to really kind of mitigate the message and really get -- most importantly, really get them out there and get latinos to vote. part of it, a big part of it is the get out the vote effort. >> i know they keep these all very quiet and you can't take cameras inside and all that. but do we have a sense? are these going to be big parties? i mean are a lot of people responding to itsome. >> well, the development at melanie griffith's house was originally built as gala, but once they found that location, it was -- i think it was reduce
