[ lionel hamilton ] veterans make great employees, because you know they've already got expertise and they've got job skills instilled in them from the military. [ kreg smith ] what i've learned, being deployed overseas, is a high sense of adaptability, leadership skills, and teamwork. [ lionel hamilton ] ge doesn't hire veterans because they're veterans. we hire veterans because they're extremely qualified. but he's really creating debt.
the facts are clear. obama's four deficits are the four largest in us history. he's adding almost as much debt as all 43 previous presidents -- combined. and over 30 cents of every dollar obama spends is borrowed. much of it from countries like china. he's not just wasting money, he's borrowing it and then wasting it. we can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. a liver problem is to brame

started its 12-mile trip from los angeles international airport to the california science center where it will go on display. it is being pulled through the city streets over the next two days. now, crews have had to clear hundreds of trees and close the sidewalks to make this move possible. you may remember that endeavour flew 25 times over two decades so now it is on the move for the last time. the last time. >> they cleared trees? >> i wasn't aware that they had to do all that to move this. but it is big so if they had to take it through the streets, they had to do some works. in just under 20 minutes, the fight against breast cancer takes over the nation's capital. >> while we wait it out another few week to find out who will be the next president, metro is already making plans for the big swearing-in ceremony. what they have in store for a less heck tyke commute. we've got that coming up. we'll be back.
david smallwood: maryland money needs to stay inin maryland. it's just that simple, i mean, it's a no brainer. anncr: every year marylanders spend five hundred and fifty... million at casinos in west virginia, delaware... and pennsylvania. one west virginia paper calls it a "cash cow" for them. but its cost maryland over one billion dollars. money that could have created good jobs and... better schools for us. question seven keeps maryland money in maryland. david smallwood: question seven, i think it will be a... good thing for the state of maryland.
under the president's policies, middle income americans have been buried. they're just being crushed. middle-income americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. this is a tax in and of itself. i'll call it the economy tax. i'm not going to raise taxes on anyone. my plan is to bring down rates to get more people working. my priority is putting people back to work in america. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message.

could be a fluke. so two things happened recently. we got the national unemployment report for september. we saw the huge dip in the joble rate to 7.8%. then yesterday, we found out that last week, there was a sharp reduction in the number of americans filing for first time jobless benefits. some people on wall street, some people on main street are scratching their heads saying well, how is this all of a sudden with less than four week until the election, we are seeing such a vast improvement in the job market. some people are saying maybe a state like california didn't file all of their claims in time to skew the numbers. the state of california deappedz those allegations. we'll just have to wait until next week when the numbers are revised to see if it reallies with a statistical fluke or some other kind ever manipulation going on. >> thank you very much. have a great weekend. we'll see you next week. >> you too. >> see you monday. you can feel the excitement here in washington. dave ross will join us live from nats park with reaction to the team's big win. there is also a lot of buzz

apt stay ago -- staying alive and getting one pitch to hit. >> we faced him a lot. that guy is tough. i knew what he h i think he threw a hook 2-2 to get to 3- 26789 finally got one to hit. >> so there you go. jay on worth the hero of the moment. again, game five tonight. 8:37 is the first pitch. gio gonzalez on the hill for the nats. we've got much more here live from nationals park all morning long. to politics now, a heated exchange in last night's debate. vice president joe biden came out and swinging at the first and only vice presidential debate. >> the intellectual match-up appears to be a draw. sherry ly is live in studio

incident running each other. >> biden slammed romney for saying 47% of americans rely on presidential assistance, something president obama left out in his first match-up with the republican nominee. >> i've had it up to here with this notion that 47%. it is about time they take some responsibility here. >> with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> the one and only vp debate covered domestic issue and foreign policy including why the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in libya was cachized as a protest against the youtube video. >> why did that go on for weeks? >> that is what we were told by the intelligence community. we weren't told they wanted more security. >> now, two or three polls released overnight show that ripe as last night's win are while one shows biden coming out on top. next up on the schedule is the next presidential debate next tuesday. we'll see how that goes.
mitt romney got a bump this time. maybe the president will take a different tack this time around. ben affleck is out with you new movie of a true story who uses a fake movie as a cover to rescue six americans. >> kevin mccarthy has his review of argo when fox 5 morning news continues. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. [ female announcer ] but this is what the budget plan mitt romney supports actually does. more huge tax breaks skewed to the wealthy. while cutting nearly eight hundred billion from medicaid... even though middle-class families rely on medicaid to help loved ones cover nursing-home care. and it helps parents support children with disabilities. if mitt romney really "cares," wouldn't we see it in his priorities? ♪
and his movie argo. >> what a story. this story took place in 1980. it wasn't declassified until bill clinton in 1997 and the fact that they had to keep this secret for 27 years, obviously, this take place based on i atrue story at the height of the iranian revolution and during the hostage crisis, 52 americans were taken hostage but they didn't know that six americans had escaped on top of the 52. they went to the canadian ambassador's house and were hiding there. the cia knew about this. so ben after phleb's character goes into iran and poses as a fake movie guy. they create a fake movie called argo, a fake produce "and director. his goal is to pose themselves as a canadian film crew who are on a location scout for the new movie argo. and the tension of this fill being, i started doing research and learning about this story
before i saw the movie. whether or not you know the outcome of what happens in this film, you will be on the end of your seat the entire time. it is like watching something like toichg. even if you know the ending, you always think to yourself, i hope they miss the iceberg this time. you are always thinking that things will change. but when you watch these films, he is such a great director that the formula works that he keeps you on the emof your seat whether or not you know the truth behind the actual story. >> i want to go see it right now. >> they create this entire fake movie. they make real press for it. it is such a fascinating story. through the movies, we are able to learn about this story. ben affleck is three for flee, gone, baby, gone was brilliant. the town was amazing. this movie will be nominate for best picture. he will get a best districtor nomination. 100% sure. great cast. and affleck just proves yet again that you can sit there for two hours, be extremely
entertained and have a great time at the movies. you will laugh. you will be on the end of your seat. you way feel every single emotion possible. >> i gave day four and a half out of five. the only reason for the half a point lower is a couple of time where you can feel they made it a little bit more hollywood than they should have but they have to fit everything into two hours. you have to give it to them there. four and a half out of five. see argo, very original. >> what you about seven psycho paths. >> this is the guy that directed imbruge. that was a highly violent, very funny interesting movie. coleen ferrell's character is a struggling screenwriter. they kidnap dogs and they return the dog to their oners to get the reward money. >> okay. one of the dog they kidnap is woody harrelson's dog in the film. he want to kill anybody his path to get his dog back and
they are being chased after. they want to get his dog back. all the screen writing ideas come about in cole unferrell's head. it is very fascinating, very tarantino-like. you are meeting these bad guys and they are having normal conversations. a very tarantino type of dialogue. i had fun with t the refreshing, interesting. it is very violent, very vulgar. i enjoyed it. very solid, four out of five for seven psycho paths. and the last movie, i'm a little creeped out by scary movies. >> as the film ended last night, you would see my jaw drop and tears in my eyes and not because i was sad. it is just a shock and terror that a film can come out in this day and age that we've seen a story like this a million time where a family moves into a house and something in that house haunts the family. but it is so original and the
idea that the cache is a struggling author. he want it piece together a murder mystery that has not been solved by this up to's police and he uncovers one of the most sick, twisted and disturbing stories you will ever see come alive on screen. it is ambitious. it is original. it is highly scary. i jumped out of my seat at least 10 times. they earn the jump scares. you will be flipping out. i gave this movie a four out of five. very, very scary. every movie this week is worth seeing. seriously, argo, benefit after flake, wow. i cannot tell you how great this movie is. -- seriously, argo, ben affleck, wow. let me know if you've seen them. want to know how scared you were after you saw sinister. i was flipped out. >> back to you guys.
