♪ >> good morning, everyone, it's sunday, march 3rd, i'm alisyn camerota. thanks for joining us. could the sequester effect be worse than we first thought? >> march 27th when the government runs out of authority then you would see a partial government shutdown and employees sent home and that might be very disruptive. >> alisyn: all right. what the 85 billion dollars in cuts could really mean for your family today. >> tucker: plus, the single ounce that's costing millions. the big cost for soda makers in order to meet nanny bloomberg's sugary drink ban. details ahead. >> clayton: nanny bloomberg. and do you know someone who always writes lol in a text message. does that annoy you? turns out it's not the worst. the top things you should never text a friend coming up, including the worst offender. you probably do it, i do it. and "fox & friends" begins right now.

shutdown is no laughing matter and that's exactly where we're headed on march 27th if lawmakers don't come to an agreement. luckily, we've got peter doocy with the details and the latest. >> reporter: we're now 23 days away from the day that furloughs begin as a result of sequestration. and one day after that the government will shut down unless democrats and republicans can agree on a budget moving forward. march 27th all government funding runs out. leaders on both sides of the aisle have been talking about how badly sequestration will hurt, but those same leaders have been very careful to know everyone makes su everyone-- make sure everyone knows there's a difference between sequester and shutdown. >> and i think some people think sequester is different than shut down government. it's more like hold hostage the things you care about. >> the discussion about revenue is over. it's about taking on the
3:05 am
spending problem here in washington and i'm hopeful that we won't have to deal with the threat of a government shutdown. >> reporter: back in 1995 and 1996, the federal government did shut down when clinton was president and gingrich was speaker of the house. national parks were closed and national monuments and many americans had to wait longer for passports and there's a chance it could all happen again this month. >> march 27th when the government runs out of budget authority then you would see a partial government shutdown, then you would see government employees sent home and that might be verydisruptive. especially because government agencies have a tendency to want to do the things that are most visible. what did the secretary of the interior mr. salazar say, we'd have to close every national park, well, that's ridiculous, i hope they come to an agreement because the government shutdown doesn't benefit anyone. >> there's also a chance all this have could be avoided soon. speaker boehner says the house will vote on a measurement to

keep the government funded past march 27th, sometime this coming week. back to you in new york. >> alisyn: peter, thank you. we get past the sequester and now we have to worry about the government shutting down in 23 days. can't they give us a break? i'm exhausted from this. >> clayton: there are no clean bathrooms now at national parks. >> alisyn: were they clean before? >> no toilet paper and bring their own. >> tucker: it might be nice to learn about not so much government. what if it happened and had no effect on your personal happiness. >> clayton: how great would that be. in d.c., suddenly going to be a ghosttown there? >> washington is adding more jobs, the washington metro region than any city in the united states. we have a housing crisis because there's not enough housing. >> clayton: and our real estate expert on the show said yesterday, best city, no
3:07 am
housing crisis. >> alisyn: there you go for one city. we'll be talking about the sequester and the effect on you all show and your headlines, a fox news alert. we want to bring you to a live look at vatican city this morning, this is the first mass held at st. peters basilica without a pope. pope benedict xvi stepped down thursday and is now living in an official papal residence just outside of rome. all the cardinals have been summoned to rome, as you know, to elect a new pope and tomorrow the conclave will start and the vatican hopes to have a new pope in place by holy week. while were you sleeping magnitude 5.5 quake rocking southwest china, 2500 homes have been damaged and 700 others have collapsed. at least 20 people were injured, three of them seriously. we'll keep you posted on that. meanwhile, this morning shall the florida home where a man was swallowed by a sinkhole while in bed will be
3:08 am
demolished, authorities made the decision to stop the search for 37-year-old jeff bush. and after the odds of survival for him became more clear. >> locate mr. bush. at this point, it's, it's really not possible to recover the body. >> alisyn: meanwhile, two neighboring homes have been evacuated because of the fears that more homes could soon collapse. tell us what's going on? >> here it is, texting may be the craze these days, of course it is, it it can be easy to get frustrated over the phone. what's the most annoying thing that you be text someone according to a new report? one of them of course is lol, abbreviation from laughing out loud. my dad received that from a co-worker, didn't understand what that meant. worst possible thing, the letter "k", nothing more frustrating than just a one letter message especially when adding the letter "o" can make
3:09 am
it a legitimate response. >> alisyn: i like k. i don't want to type the o. >> i'm too lazy to type the o i'm so busy. >> clayton: k, i'll be over. you see somebody on the phone and all you do is do the pinky maze. >> alisyn: lmao. and maybe you've heard that a liberal group in kentucky put out a tweet that was nasty about mitch mcconnell's wife, you've seen on our show, former labor secretary elaine chao. >> clayton: she served under president bush and here is the tweet that went out. this woman has the ear of mitch mcconnell and she's his
3:10 am
wife. exmay explain why your job moved to china. he's not taking this down, if the shoe were on the other foot accord to go mcconnell, this would be an outrage. if a conservative had done this it would be all over the press. and here is what mcconnell sounded off at. elaine chao is just as much as american as any of the rest of, in fact, had to go through a lot more to be an american. and they will not get away with attacking my wife. at any good husband would in attacking his wife. >> tucker: they will quote, those tweets did not reflect our values, we're committed to making sure nothing like that happens again, comments to race, ethnicity and sexual orientation have no place in any debate, and we are deeply embarrassed by a mistake.
3:11 am
the justice department would be all over this, a hate crime, and law center would issue a paper how this was a hate group. and elaine chao is not from china, she is from taiwan, it's stupid. >> clayton: ignoranignorant. like any good husband, standing up for your wife. >> alisyn: as you know, mayor bloomberg offered an edict to try to make people healthier in new york at least he satisfies that's the go-- he says that's the goal. i don't think this was an unintended consequence of the mayor, but what ended up happening is that all sorts of soda makers now have to completely retrofit all the equipment that you see they now -- they make 16.9 ounce drinks, now, they have to change their bottles, change their equipment to the tune of millions of dollars to make 16
3:12 am
ounce drinks. >> tucker: wouldn't it just be cheaper for soda makers to make the case against this unilateral and deranged edict from mayor bloomberg and make the point there's no scientific evidence that it will make people thinner. people who drink sugary drinks are on average thinner than those who drink diet drink, why don't they mound a campaign to fight back against this totally unreasonable law. >> clayton: and you can buy the drinks, 16 ounce that's okay. at any other place in the sfi not just starbucks, but sugary smoothies. think about the amount of sugar in one of those giant fruit smoothies, i'm healthy for lunch and thousands of calories there, shoving all kinds of sugar and stuff in there and larger than-- >> and it's that fashionable rich people go to starbucks or

3:50 am
issue tested. in florida we carry sinkhole coverage, if you have sinkhole coverage you can contact your insurance company and file a claim. at that point they would have to do an investigation with a geological engineer and test the entire property. that would answer the question for your problem. >> tucker: so your diagnosis just from looking at the photograph we put up on the screen is that clayton might be in danger of being sinkholed? >> it's a possibility on his property that one may have opened up and he would potentially need to get that, that and the whole property tested. >> clayton: oh. >> tucker: sorry, this is kind after grave moment for you. >> clayton: that's great news. >> alisyn: thanks so much for joining us this morning. if there was water underneath it, is sounds like it's ripe for a sinkhole. sounds like you should get it checked. >> clayton: maybe your heating bill is high for the winter, and now a sinkhole in my back

4:03 am
of stuff, right. >> alisyn: there you go. >> clayton: that's right, didn't back in the 1800's you gave a person a little whiskey for a cold, right yeah, put it on a cotton ball. >> alisyn: let's find out from the real expert. >> clayton: that's my medical condition. >> alisyn: doctor, what you can cure from your kitchen cabinet. meanwhile, let's talk sequester, shall we? >> did the white house mismanage it? experts are contradicting the plan that the president had no flexibility what to cut. and from the beginning, president thought they were mindless, stupid, cannot be targeted. there's some discrepancy about that now. >> clayton: he said i have no choice, you guys voted for we all voted for, went in and signed and it across the board they have to come from projects and we don't get to pick and choose, said i'm not dictator, listen. >> i am not a dictator. i'm the president.
4:04 am
so ultimately if mitch mcconnell or john boehner say we need to go a catch a plane, i can't have secret service block the doorway. the fact that they don't take it means that i should somehow, you know, do a jedi mind meld. >> alisyn: well, it turns out there are contradictory reports about this, whether or not these cuts are arbitrary, but across the board, or whether or not the president has some latitude. now some budget experts say it's not as easy, not just as blanket across the board as he's making it sound. he does have some flexibility. and they say that there are these sub-- sub area accounts, sub accounts known as program project activity and you can go in with more of a scalpel in three ways and not have them all be layoffs and furloughs and people's paychecks, you can trim more,
4:05 am
this is what congressman said on friday how the president has not played this as honestly as he thinks. >> i don't know to what extent this white house will go to, but -- i have never in my lifetime seen such a lack of leadership and truth telling emanating from the white house and from our commander-in-chief. >> tucker: well, i mean, the clearest sign of that is the fact that the white house was offered greater discretion by the senate, by the minority leader in the senate, mitch mcconnell who said, look, this is going to be disaster, republicans in the senate will give you the authority to make more targeted cuts and the white house dismissed that out of hand. >> clayton: they wanted more revenues and the president said we wanted a plan the republicans would have agreed to a few short months ago with the fiscal cliff negotiation and bringing in new revenues to offset some of the cuts. >> alisyn: they say that they got -- in january the president won, got his tax hikes and raised up the upper rate 39.6% and they were done
4:06 am
with revenue increases and now it's time to start cutting. boats side both sides have dug in their heels, but in this situation you still have it make the tough decisions. >> tucker: the balanced approach suggests that each side gives something. now, in january, as you just said, republicans overturning 30 years of their own precedent agreed to hike taxes and now, the president is saying, no, talk about a one trick pony, i want more tax revenue, period. i mean, that seems to be the only talking point coming out of the white house. >> clayton: tucker, that's a whole different negotiation, the white house saying, hey, that was a separate negotiation, that was for the debt-- that was for the fiscal cliff. yes, you agreed to more taxes and this is a whole different negotiation. that was the first film, this is the sequel, sequestration. >> tucker: but it's the same film-- it's groundhog day, raise taxes on the rich, raise taxes on the rich. no economist believes -- if you took every rich person in
4:07 am
america and applied it to the debt, that wouldn't do it. >> clayton: and said time for the president starts leading. >> he likes running for office, doesn't leak running around blaming people, and stirring up something there and getting people wrapped around the axle about things they don't have to get excited about. we can handle this in a thoughtful way, but it takes a thoughtful president thinking about what's best for the country and not just campaigning. he got his tax hikes on january 1st, he got what he wanted, got his revenue. let's start running the country, mr. president. >> now to the american people and tried to campaign on this basic sequestration argument saying it's playing well for the american people and sort of winning the campaign on the ground on this. so, i think that democrats are surprised now to learn that maybe people are soured on
4:08 am
this whole thing out there because if you look at president obama's approval rating this morning, it's down. it's down from where it was, and you have to wonder, what else are we talking about right now other than the sequestration. it's not good for the president, his approval rating now at 47% this morning,% of the country disapproves of the gallup poll out today, there you go. >> tucker: here is what "the washington post" says, so it's not just congressman kelly. this is from yesterday's washington post, i'm quoting, obama fresh off his november reelection began almost at once executing plans to win back the house in 2014. and he and advisors believe it's crucial to second term. imagine that, within days of winning reelection, he's planning the next election, it's impossible to see these negotiations as not part of that plan. >> alisyn: yes, i mean, and i think that politicians are often focused on their next campaign, however, president obama promised something different when he was running for president, that he was
4:09 am
going to be different, post partisan and the idea that "the washington post" would say that that is what he's now fixated on or at least focused on moving forward, you can't catch your breath from the campaign. >> tucker: there's a d disconne disconnect. and i think that the republicans are focused on, no excuse, but on the current debate and the president is taking a much longer view. his plan is to win back the house, if the president wins the house for his party in 2014 no obstruction to anything he wants, nothing in the way of his entire agenda. >> clayton: for the final two years of his presidency. much more on the sequestration coming up with other guests and experts and e-mail us. >> alisyn: and what you missed while you were sleeping. this morning, demolition work is set to begin on the home where the man was swallowed by a sinkhole. and authorities warn it could take a couple of days. and they give up the search for jeff bush, the man that

4:13 am
probably towards chicago by tomorrow and then that storm emerges out of this area in the plains and moves in towards parts of the southeast and the mid atlantic. so we're going to see some rain, that blue line there you see is the 32 degree line. he so, it's the north of that or to the west of it is going to be freezing temperatures. this storm is probably going to be elevation related so if you're up above say 500 feet up to 1,000 feet elevation, a lot more snow and coastal areas and probably not as much, at least elevations closer to sea level about as much. it looks like potentially a wednesday night storm around the washington d.c. area, which is only had just over one inch of snow this year, this could be the storm that gets us back up towards our average. we'll see. >> alisyn: you're getting snow, tucker, prepare yourself on wednesday. >> tucker: i'm waxing the runners on my sled. >> alisyn: okay. >> clayton: and that's not a euphemism. coming up on the show, illegal immigrants are getting a second chance hat freedom, being released because of those budget cuts in the

4:20 am
administration has slated for deportation. >> alisyn: what does level three mean? >> felons, i don't know, who is telling the truth? i'd rather believe the sheriff than the administration because the administration first told us only 200 people or several hundred were released and now it's several thousand. >> alisyn: right, it seems as though the sheriffs on the ground have a much better handle who they are, what they were arrested for and what sorts of offenses than the homeland security because they've got their numbers wrong. >> the sheriff knows how many people are released in the city and see the crime rate, how is changes. he's the one that's got to face the people every day. >> alisyn: and what ice, department of homeland security, ice reviewed the population to assure the detention level stays within ice's current budget and methods less costly than detention. at this point we don't anticipate additional releases, but that could change and in fact, we have heard that 3000 more now are set to be released later this month. >> exactly, who do you

5:15 am
happening and to date what we've seen is the president out campaigning to the american people, doing rallies around the country and flying around the country and berating republicans and blaming and pointing. now, what does that do? that causes the republicans to retrench and put up a wall and fight back. it's a natural human emotion. the president has the opportunity to lead the nation and to bring republicans and democrats together. it's a job he's got to do and it's a job only the president can do. >> clayton: joining us now the host of fox news sunday, chris wallace and the man who managed to get mitt romney out of his own sequester. >> this is a big deal, guys, literally, since he made his concession speech early on the morning of november 7th, mitt romney and ann romney have gone off the grid. radio silence. they went back to their home in la jolla, north of san diego, california and they've licked their wounds, they've picked up their lives, and obviously, they've watched what's going on on the
5:16 am
national scene. one. things most poignant about doing this particular interview at this particular moment is that romney felt such frustration at what's going on in washington, and i think he deeply believes that if he were there, this wouldn't be happening, that he could have pulled off -- he feels that the confluence of the bush tax cuts expiring at the end. year, of all of these automatic spending cuts, that it would have given every side that the impetus to make a grand bargain you would have taken some tax increases, some major entitlement reform and some spending cuts and he could have done what washington has failed to do. >> tucker: now, chris, just four months ago, romney was in effect the head of the republican party. has he had any contact with the republican leadership in congress, given them advice, helping talk strategy as the budget negotiations continue? >> no, i don't think so. and you know, i've got to say he was very open in the interview about the fact that he lost. he said repeatedly, look, i'm
5:17 am
the guy who lost, i'm the last guy the republicans need advice from. but he said, i care too much about these issues so i'm going to speak out beginning with our interview and he's going to be speaking at cpac, the conservative political action conference, in a couple of weeks here in washington. he said i care about the issues, i'm going to speak out and people can take from them what they want and and talking about the adjustment from being the in the heat of the battle and suddenly it's over. >> in a flash it was all gone, the secret service, the crowds, the intensity, the minute by minute schedule and suddenly, nothing. how tough is that? >> it's an adjustment, it is an adjustment. one i think we did well. and it's interesting in our church we're used to serving and you can be in a very high position, but you recognize you're serving and all of a sudden you're released and you're nobody, we're used to

when it matters and look, i will just say this, you know, while he talks about a variety of other things in the obama campaign, he takes full responsibility for all the decisions, all the mistakes in the campaign and we talk about that, immigration stand, the 47% video, hurricane sandy, he talks about all of that and he says, i lost the election, it's my fault. >> alisyn: fascinating interview, we look forward to seeing more. thanks for sharing some of it with us, we'll be watching fox news sunday. check your local listings. >> thanks, guys. >> great stuff. >> clayton: a leading group of doctors says we should be nice to bad children to make them better behaved. would that really work? larry is here with his reaction to that. >> tucker: and the official science is in. whose brains work better, men or women's? >> i'll answer that right now. >> tucker: men-y of you will

>> welcome back. no punishment for bad behavior? a leading doctor's group thinks that school suspension is counterproductive. bad for kids. the american academy of pediatrics say that students who experience out of school suspension and expulsion are as much as ten times more likely to ultimately drop out of high school than those who do not. >> tucker: shouldn't they be held accountable for what they do or don't do? joining us now is a best selling author, larry thanks for joining us. isn't it an abdication of responsibility on the part of schools to kick out kids they can't deal with? isn't it their job to improve
5:25 am
children, make them better and learn from their mistakes rather than having somebody else deal with them? >> i think that's the teacher's job to teach the kids and they're stretched pretty thin as it is already. i believe that people should experience the consequences and feel the pain of bad behavior and not to do that, coddle them in a way that doesn't teach them a good serious lesson. by sending them home and putting that burden back on the parents so they have to deal with that child when they're sent home, that's a good punishment as well. the other thing is that if i'm an adult and i go out on the streets and i abuse people and threaten people and maybe physically accost people, i'm going to be put in jail for two reasons, one is punishment, but two is to remove the threat from everybody else so i can't hurt them. and when you out of school suspend the kid because he's threatened other kids, you've removed that threat from those children that are left in the schools. >> but, larry, let's face it, out of school suspension for trouble makers isn't a
5:26 am
punishment, it's a vacation. they don't want to go to school. when you give them out of school suspension, that's like, hey, two days off. isn't there something else that disciplinaries in schools could do that sends the same message without sending them home? >> you know, i think you're right. that is the case with some kids. but face it, a lot of kids just want attention and if we left them in the school we're giving them that attention and when we take that away from them, by suspending them, we remove that and then we've removed their impetus for being bad because they don't get the attention that they really ultimately deserve. i think that suspending kids is just one tool in the toolbox. i don't think it's the ultimate answer for everybody. so i think you've got to have lots of things that you can rely on, but you can't take away this powerful punishment and it should be seen as a punishment. >> clayton: if the statistics are true that we were talking about earlier as we led into
5:27 am
your segment and these kids end up having all sorts of problems down the line as a result of it, doesn't it fall on society to help them support in that way, couldn't they end up in jail and couldn't we do more preventive movements at the beginning to try to stop this? >> you know, i think that's also a responsibility of the parent to make sure that the kid does better when they're young. i don't think that you can put it all on the school. that means that the school is going to get out of the job of teaching and more on the job of being psychologists and holding their hand while they're growing up. i don't think that's their job at all. besides that, there are some kids that are just bad kids. i really do believe that and they can't be left in the middle of the good kids to disrupt their learning and we have to take that into account, too. you can't disrupt the classroom trying to hold littlejohny's hand because he doesn't want his hand held and's going to disrupt no matter what you do for him. remove him, remove the threat, remove the distraction and let the people who are there to learn, get back to learning.

5:46 am
suggested that if john boehner were to make another compromise like happened back on new year's eve that he probably wouldn't remain as speaker very long. so republicans started to become more comfortable with this eyed of the sequester going through. while there was a lot of concerns about the cuts to the military, this idea that we needed to rein in spending began to become the prevailing idea of the day and over the president's day holiday, the break, a lot of republicans went back to their district, including david schweiker, to give power point presentations to tell people exactly how terrible our fiscal position was. it became an emerging consensus that they needed to hold the line on this because it was perhaps the last best chance to actually get something done to cut spending. i asked david schweiker about that on the 6th congressional district in arizona. here is a little excerpt from tonight's special. >> republican congressman david schweiker is back in arizona telling his constituents he will hold firm. >> you're going back to d.c.
5:47 am
on monday, from there five days to either solve this or go over whatever fiscal cliff will happen when the sequestration kicks in. how do you see this unfolding in the next few days? >> first mistake in the the question is solvent. because if we can't do this tiny, reduction margin of spending ultimately by the end of the decades isn't a reduction in spending, it's just a reduction in the growth of spending, god forbid what our future is, if we can't do this. >> should be trigger, a sign of a broker government that can't get anything done even in the height of crisis. for other people, it may be a reflection of deep divisions in the country over the vision of where it should be going. bigger government versus smaller government and then the fact that there is a vigorous debate going on here, tucker and alisyn, is a sign that well, things maybe aren't as bad as everybody thinks they are. >> alisyn: john, what happens now from all of your investigation and talking to people, is this going to happen or is there anything that people are doing behind
5:48 am
the scenes to sort of modify the cuts? >> that's a big question a lot of people have. will the economy be wasting away in sequesterville? some of the cuts may go through. they don't start for months. there's a window of time that many republicans in the house believe they can get work done to adjust how the cuts can be applied. carl cameron talked to paul ryan last week who said, he already with his agreement for the republicans and democrats look at the military cuts, adjust in such a way they don't bite as hard. a lot of people believe there's plenty of time to adjust these things so that the horribleness the president has been talking about the last few weeks doesn't happen. even if they get a deal, it's mostly about discretionary spending. 80% of discretionary spending and a tiny piece of mandatory spending. the elephant in the room, social security, medicare, medicaid, that's really what's going to choke the american
5:49 am
economy over coming years. if you look out to 2023, ten years from now, domestic discretionary spending or discretionary spending goes up by about 10 to 14%, but mandatory spending doubles to 4.5 trillion dollars by 2023. so, as you well know, they've got to do something about that or we're going to be in serious trouble. >> tucker: you really can't say that enough. i don't think that people understand that's the whole deal, mandatory entitlement spending. >> it is. >> tucker: is there anybody you've seen in a public position of authority who seems serious about tackling the growth of >> you know, they all realize that it's a problem and something has to be done, tucker. of course, the problem with congress is how do you get to that. start the means test on medicare? do you means test more on social security? do you raise the retirement age? what do you do? everybody's got a lot of ideas, but there certainly is no consensus, but you know, we seem to submerge in
5:50 am
bipartisanship, what do do about the application of the sequester, so maybe there's some sort of appetite, let's hope, to get at this element of spending. >> alisyn: john, we will be watching, fox news special reporting showdown on debt row, as it's called. airs tonight at 8 p.m. thanks for giving us a sneak peek. >> appreciate it. >> thank you. >> tucker: they're starting demolition on the hole swallowed up by a sinkhole and the latest on that story in which one man disappeared forever. >> and these cranes are just being brought in to try to level the home. of course, during the press conference earlier we heard from the crew there that basically said, it's -- we cannot go in there to recover jeff bush's body at this point. that hole is so massive. so unstable and so deep, it's putting the lives of other rescue workers at risk by trying to go into this house and rescue a person that they have said, they presume is dead. and you're really getting a sense of what a remarkable story, you'll notice the sinkhole is not visible,
5:51 am
there's no dramatic hole. it was underneath the inside of the house. it it was all, i mean, it was almost a precision situation where right underneath the bedroom the sinkhole opened up and took this poor man. >> alisyn: yeah. we've been talking with experts this morning and yesterday, what to do when there's a sinkhole and how you can possibly forecast one, based upon your foundation shifting or windows and doors not opening and closing properly anymore and basically what they've determined, they have to take down the whole house, the sinkhole keeps growing and even the neighbor's houses have been threatened in a precarious position. the sink holes, obviously in the news you hear about them from time to time and swallowing up cars and never seen one that takes a house and possibly the neighboring houses down with them. >> tucker: especially from the inside. you would never know. i suspect this is going to cause real concern for the whole neighborhood. >> clayton: and one of the reasons they made this decision, i mean, it's been three days now since this
5:52 am
happened. and they used equipment, the engineers brought in equipment which basically could identify signs of life. putting this down into the hole to try to find heat signatures from a human body to see if they could see that, they do did not find that and they had to, as they said at the press conference, quote, the heart breaking decision that they need to demolish this house. and one of the questions for the home owners in the neighboring area, they had to evacuate as well, the stability of the ground under the homes nearby. >> alisyn: it was heart breaking to hear the victim, jeffrey's, brother because it just, this happened while they were sleeping and he could hear, he said, his brother yelling for help. and he actually tried to go into the sinkhole to pull his brother out. and he himself then got trapped in the sinkhole and he had about rescued and he couldn't get to his brother and he just felt as though he was haunted by hearing his brother's yells for help. i wonder if people were
5:53 am
allowed back into their house here to get any of their belongings before-- >> doesn't appear a they were. >> there's the police tape surrounding that area. what's amazing you look at the pictures of his bedroom, i mean, just think about this. just the other day he was asleep in that bed, and then the room opens up beneath him and he's gone in an instant in his bedroom through the floor. and now, a crane is literally pulling out belongings and we saw a tv being pulled out by that crane presumably a bedroom or a living room television, couch, being yanked out. i mean, it's remarkable. >> tucker: and it's clear that nobody wants to get inside that home right now. >> clayton: yeah, his dresser. according to his brother, his dresser went through the floor, his bed went through the floor, just about everybody in that bedroom collapsed and went through giant gaping hole in the floor. >> alisyn: it's like something out you can only imagine in a science fiction movie, but
5:54 am
then it happened to this poor family, that they just -- that feeling is of being helpless while you're watching somebody desperately call for you is very chilling to me. >> clayton: we're getting word now that one of the houses next door has also been compromised. in fact the home owners that live next door were told that they had 30 minutes to get in and get out and get their personal belongings. >> alisyn: i was wondering about that, 30 minutes it was that precarious. >> clayton: they were worried that the acidic ground water that form the voids for this collapse could cause them to collapse. get in, get out. i wouldn't want to take a risk, grab the photo albums and important items and you don't know in a sfant if your house is goes to go to be going down as well. >> alisyn: we heard about the states where this is most common and i know, tucker, you were talking about this, that it is the ground water that somehow corrodes the foundation under the house and happens, i guess, where
5:55 am
there's limestone? >> right, limestone corrodes over time and takes millions of years typically, but it does ultimately corrode when it comes into contact with ground water and the result are enormous subterranean carves a caves. and spulunkers are familiar with them. it's striking that no sign of mr. bush's body has been found. despite apparently some effort. so that suggests a very large cavern beneath the home that we're looking at. >> clayton: any problem in the rescue attempt is the ability to lower ropes and lower down a crane mechanism so that rescue workers can try to go into the area and you certainly don't want to put a large crane on unstable ground near this gaping hole and try to get rescue workers to try to recover his body and get rid of the roof to be able to
5:56 am
do that. florida, we were looking at tampa, near tampa, a small community only about 5,000 people live here, a real small town. so you can imagine the effect this is having on the other folks living in that area, wondering how stable their homes are and when they're evacuated. >> tucker: we have no clue how big the cavern is, and if it will lead to other sink holes and by the way, probably wouldn't want to be a crane operator, a he it's an enormously heavy piece of machinery over ground honey combed with caverns. >> alisyn: we learn a lot as newscasters, even though would he haven't, we interview people and clayton, in seriousness, call an expert. you've been saying a couple of mysterious holes developed in your back yard since the tree fell down and that you know there used to be ground water in there and i think you should have somebody come over and look at those. >> clayton: that's an issue,
5:57 am
right? when you look the at these things, homes in these communities where, you know, communities are being built on things, like washington d.c., for instance, right, it's built on a swamp. >> tucker: it is. >> alisyn: a landfill. >> tucker: a lot of landfill and number of rivers that run through downtown washington, tiber creek, for example, parallel to pennsylvania avenue, few people know that, incorporated into the waste water system there's a great deal of water running a lot of our cities, new york city included. >> clayton: you come in and build communities over top of it and wonder how stable that is and as ali was mentioning, the situation in my back yard, earlier in the show. the tree collapsed as a result of moist soil and thing fell on the house during the hurricane and holes popped up and the expert said have a ground specialist check it and it could cause problems and turned into a sinkhole which of course scared me. >> alisyn: i'm glad to hear you took note of that. this is so sad to watch, you know, all of your belongings
5:58 am
in your house just being sort of bulldozed and obviously, they're doing it for safety and the house is uninhabitable, and they lost their son or brother, jeffrey, who was swallowed up in the sinkhole. but to have to stand by and watch all of this happening. >> tucker: you've got to think there's got to be a better way than this. there has to be to watch people's lifetime of possessions destroyed. >> alisyn: what else could they do. >> tucker: i don't know, what a sad situation. >> clayton: try to get in there and as the brother said in all of this, now, so many memories in this house. just so stad to see it go. if you're just tuning in right now to "fox & friends" this morning, good morning to you and what you're looking at are live pictures from tampa, florida, or just outside of tampa, the past three days we've been captivated by the giant sinkhole that opened up beneath the home of jeffrey bush, 37 years old. while he was sleeping, fell into the sleep hole. his dresser-- you're looking at a crane right now, demolishing his

house, as rescue efforts have been stopped. they're not trying to recover his body at this point. they do presume him to be dead. >> alisyn: that's the hardest part of it, the family has come out and said that they were desperate to recover his body. they had basically accepted the fact that he may not have survived that fall and being swallowed up in the sinkhole, but wanted his body and we heard from authorities earlier this morning that they did not think it was safe enough to attempt to recover his body this morning, so, it looks like they're just razing the whole foundation and the home and hard to know what the family has been told about the future. if they will be able to recover his body in the future. >> clayton: compelling pictures here and the brother standing there in tears and saying, again, that all of our memories are in this house, as it comes down. also we should mention that the neighbors have been evacuated and authorities found that actually one of the houses was unstable and had structural damage as a result of this sinkhole. the acidity of the ground water from the limestone
6:00 am
deposits there, the neighbors were told they had 30 minutes to get in, get their stuff, and get out, because they could not verify the stability of the ground beneath the neighbor's house as well. >> alisyn: we had heard missouri, florida, i don't remember if texas. >> clayton: texas, yes. >> alisyn: alabama, certain states that are much more prone and susceptible to sink holes and perhaps if you live one in of those states and you know the precautions to take, and now you can see some neighbors or perhaps possibly family members who are standing and watching this terribly sad aftermath of the-- one of the members of the community being killed in this sinkhole and now this is the house being torn apart there. but again, just take the precautions if you have sensed anything going amiss in your house, any new sort of cracks or shifting of the foundation. >> clayton: experts said earlier on the show, there are a number of symptoms you notice in your house that something is awry.
6:01 am
if the doors suddenly are having a little bit of trouble like opening, right, maybe the ground is shifting. you notice cracks in some plaster on your walls, windows are differently shifted, can't open them as easily as you once could. check that out. >> tucker: and these are typical signs of a house settling, which is entirely natural and not dangerous. >> alisyn: that's what i thought. i would think it's the house settling, but now i'll look at it-- >> if you live in an older home, you know, 50 years old that the house had time to settle. so if you notice a sudden increase in jammed doors or windows that won't open, it could be a sign worth checking out. >> clayton: more at the top of the hour. here, we're looking live at a crane brought into the moment of jeffrey bush who fell through that sinkhole. in his bedroom and presumed dead at this hour. rescue crews have said we can't go in for his body and we're going to demolish the house in an effort to get more information. >> alisyn: and neighbors are

"fox & friends", hour four starts now. you don't want to miss the travel deals coming up. ♪ >> and welcome back, everybody. hope you've been with us all
6:03 am
morning. we've had a lot of news here. of course, our top story is the sequester, and just what happens tomorrow when all of the effects of this are felt? the president no longer referring to the sequester as a crisis of epic proportion, though. >> this is not going to be an apocalypse, as some people said. >> while it only cuts 2% of the budget, there's potential crisis. the president is not talking about the possibility of a government shut down but that's apparently less than a month he away. >> peter doocy joins us live from washington this morning with the details on a possible government shutdown. we haven't heard that kind of a rumor in a couple of years, have we, peter? >> no. months. >> reporter: it's interesting. there's sort of a double whammy at the end of this month. in 23 days furloughs as a result of sequestration quick in. one day after that the government runs out of money, and there's a chance it will shut down. >> march 27th when the
6:04 am
government runs out of budget authority, then you would see a partial government shutdown. then you would see government employees sent home. that might be very disruptive, especially because government agencies have a tendency to want to do the things that are most visible. the secretary of the interior said we have to close every national park. that's ridiculous. i hope they come to agreement on march 27th because a government shutdown doesn't benefit anyone. >> reporter: about two decades ago in 1995 and '96 the government shut down twice for a total of almost a month, 28 days, and it impacted national parks and monuments since some had to close. it also caused some delays at passport offices and some other government services, but the speaker of the house and the president made clear on friday they plan to avoid a shutdown in 2013 with speaker boehner promising to push legislation doing just that a few days from now. >> i do believe the house will
6:05 am
move a continuing resolution next week to fund the government past march 27th. i'm hopeful that we won't have to deal with the threat of a government shutdown while we're dealing with the sequester at the same time. the house will act next week, and i hope the senate will follow suit. >> there's no reason why we should have another crisis by shutting the government down in addition to these arbitrary spending cuts. >> reporter: and remember, there was that final bi-partisan meeting at the white house on friday to talk about a way around sequestration. that meeting failed, but the sound you just heard from the speaker and the president came shortly after that meeting. they both expressed similar sentiments about avoiding a government shutdown this month. now we just wait and see if they can actually come together this time. back to you in new york. >> i'm sure that will happen, peter. both sides will come together. they've learned their lesson, i'm sure. >> thanks, peter. great explanation. you're going with the
6:06 am
straight earnest response. >> very good alt summing up complicated political matters. let's get to the headlines. new video into the newsroom of the space x dragon exap sewell reaching the international space station. the unmanned ship is carrying 1200 pounds of supplies to the astronauts on board. the space x capsule was launched on friday but the arrival was delayed yesterday. there you go. listening. >> space x continues america's mission to supply the resupply the international space station. >> it was delayed yesterday because there were problems with the dragon capsule's thrusters. they fixed them. >> you need thrusters. >> i know that. worshipers gathered at st. peter's basilica at vatican city, okay, just tourists, for the first mass without a pope. the pope stepped down and is living in an official papal

residence outside of vatican city. tomorrow the cardinals meet to try to get a new pope in place by holy week. we have a live report from rome coming up. it may be all the craze these days, but it can be pretty easy to get frustrated over the phone. what's the most annoying thing you can test another human being. one of them, according to a new study, is l.o. l. that's the abbreviation for laughing out loud. that's really annoying. then there's one thing that's actually worse than sending l.o.l., it's the simple letter "k". >> i love when people send me that. >> basically it's saying i'm too lazy to type the o in front of the k or spell it properly which is o-k-a-y. >> i recognize it that you are a busy woman who does not have time. k. >> do you want to have dinner with he me? >> okay. >> that's a very high self

esteem to read it. i appreciate that you're not insecure. i love that about you. i read it as the person sending the text says i care so little about you that i'm investing literally no time. you get one letter. that's what i'm portioning for you. >> it's like a rohrshak text. you put whatever your own infear orty or possibly inflated self image is. i like the k. send it. >> it's so informal. i agree with tucker on this. it's just as bad as someone being on the phone and someone saying hi. they give you a little finger up. hey. that's all i got for you. >> it's the image of a french waiter saying i spit on you. your feelings i have no interest in them. >> i'm going to get dr. keith ablow on the phone to interpret this. let's talk about what's going on in new york city. if you're visiting and you arrive after march 12th, you know you'll not be able to get a
6:09 am
giant big gulp any more, those giant vats of soda because the mayor's office has put the kabosh on the large 32-ounce gallons of soda that you can't get any more when you come to the city. this is having an adverse effect on the businesses that create and manufacture the bottles and the production quality of the soft drinks. >> they have to make the bottles smaller because the bottles that they currently make are 16.9 ounces, so that .9 ounce is going to cost them millions and millions of dollars because they have to retrofit all of their equipment like you see here, make new machines to just make 16-ounce bottles instead of the added .9. >> you know what this has nothing to do with at all? science. there's no empirical evidence that this ban will cause anybody to lose a single pound. here's what i think the soda maker should do, take a page from the gun manufacturers and ammunition manufacturers in various states passing gun control and say we're leaving if you do that.
6:10 am
california, colorado, manufacturers are leaving and moving to texas. if soda manufactures say you know what, we're not shipping any more soda to new york city, you would have a million mountain dew addicts marching on gacgraygracie mansion right now. >> michael bloomberg is a savvy businessman. he had to know this would hurt soft drink manufacturers, so you can possibly make the possible step that he doesn't mind hurting soft drink manufacturers. >> our own rick reichmuth has been drinking soda non-steps for weeks now because he knows the van is going in effect. he has a violen giant vat. you're such a scofflaw, rick. >> man. you can't drink a bunch of this and talk right away. it creates gas in your chest. >> how is your gag doing? >> he's been drinking that all morning. he's already lost four teeth.
6:11 am
>> right. there's one that is dissolving at the bottom right now. it fell out and went down the straw. this is the most soda that i've had in years. >> what you'll do for your craft. >> right. i'm the wrong target audience for this thing. let me tell you. this is tasty. all it takes is like a couple of since of this and you're hooked. >> there's a reason. >> i'm going to play the devil's advocate here and back me up or shoot me down. did you ever see the manufacturers of the bottles? they come out and they shape them, make them like an hour glass shape, like a nice shapely woman, and they put on the packaging, they say now with less plastic for the environment, but really they're just making it smaller so they don't have produce as much quantity but it makes you feel better about buying a product with a grippable handle. >> the hotel guiltying you into using your bath towels more than once. >> they show a picture of the dolphin. >> they have to make the bottles smaller.
6:12 am
that's what i'm saying. >> oh. >> all for the environment. >> hm. >> i'm sure i've had 16 ounces, at least, this morning. >> our producer wants the weather. >> can we levi listen to some weather. >> you've had so much soda that will be impossible. >> let's see if i can speak without it all coming back up. here's your temps as you wake up. a nice day if you want to hang onto winter. across the south, it's cold. another cold night on tap and tomorrow we start to see things improve. we've had a disturbance across the northeast and kind of in towards parts of the tennessee valley with snow. we had snow around areas of atlanta, parts of alabama. we'll see a few more of these flurries today. wow. see? it happens. you start to have that soda and you can't talk. out across the west this is the next storm moving in that will bring rain and mountain snow across parts of california and in towards the central rockies. it's going to develop into a much bigger storm here starting tonight across areas of the far northern plains, parts of north
6:13 am
dakota and minnesota. snow will move towards chicago, peoria, illinois, indianapolis, possibly. we're watching that become a much potentially bigger storm by the time we get in towards tuesday, wednesday really more on wednesday night. this is the kind of snow we're going to see moving in across parts of iowa, illinois, indiana, and probably the bull's eye of this will be across interior sections of virginia and west virginia, spatia especy with a little elevation. we could see some beach erosion as well. >> i'm sure an ad campaign will use you to sell soda at some point. >> it's actually for doctors who will use you for something. >> i'm rick reichmuth for mountain dew. >> take a break. >> i will. coming up on the show, congress returning to capitol hill tomorrow after deciding not to do anything about the sequester. so what will they do now to fix it? we'll talk live with south carolina republican congressman trey gowdy. it's been a tough year for florida farmers. that could also mean bad news

welcome back. the nation's now stuck in sequester squeeze, but our next guest, south carolina congressman trey gowdy, voted against the sequester next change for raising the debt ceiling back in 2011. he joins us this morning. congressman, nice to see you. >> good morning. how are you? >> i'm doing well. >> i don't know if you were looking into some sort of crystal ball at the time, but did you see this coming? is that why you voted against this? >> i'd love to tell you yes, but that would be disinjen with us. i voted no in the summer of 2011 because i was one of the ones that wanted a more systemic
6:18 am
remedy. remember, we agreed or congress agreed to raise the debt ceiling. i wanted t wanted to have entitt reform, something that was trans generational and we didn't get it. we got another washington deal. i think all the republicans in south carolina voted against it. i'd auto lov love to tell you it enough to have seen this coming. the reality is i wanted a big br deal in december of 2011 than what was being offered. >> you voted against it, 174 republicans voted for it. were they wrong? >> well, i don't know anyone who voted for it that's happy about their vote now. it's easy for me to monday morning quarterback. i was in conference. lots of guys were concerned about the defense cuts, you know. i think in fairness to them, no one thought that you and i would be having this conversation. we thought the so-called super committee would come up with a
6:19 am
remedy. why we thought that, i don't know because washington is not proving to be very successful at coming up with big remedies. were they wrong? in hindsight, yes, they were wrong. but hindsight usually is a lot better than foresight. >> i want to get your take on something that former press secretary robert gibbs said about the drone program this week. take a listen he to secretary gibbs. >> when i went through the process of becoming press secretary, one of the things -- one of the first things they told me was you're not even to acknowledge the drone program. you're not even to discuss that it exists. >> now, critics have come out and said where is the transparency in this administration. this was supposed to be a very transparent administration. others have said well, wait a second. this is national security. you don't go out there at the podium and talk about the drone program and which terrorists we're targeting so they know where they can run and hide. where do you come out on this controversy this week? >> well, there certainly have been plenty of leaks with
6:20 am
respect to national security, so i wish this administration had been as tight lipped about everything as they have been about drones. not telling the media with all due respect is one thing, but not telling congress what method you use to decide whether or not to kill americans overseas is a very different matter. our framers set up a system of checks and balances for a reason. we're not a monarchy. we're not a dictatorship. the executive branch doesn't get to decide these things by themselves, so i'm actually happy that all national security secrets are not being released because there was a period of time several months ago when i wondered whether that was the case or not. i do think the department of justice owes it to congress to come explain to us the analysis, constitutional and otherwise, that they use in deciding who they're going to kill. >> where do you shake out on that? charles krauthammer wrote an interesting piece a few weeks ago where i'm sure you saw where
6:21 am
he defended the obama administration's drone program and said if you are a domestic terrorist, an american system and you pick up arms against the country, we're vowed to protect against foreign and domestic terrorists in the country. where do you shake out on that issue? >> well, i am loathe to criticize dr. krauthammer, but i will say this. the department of justice needs to answer blont th whether or ne pull planaplea of protections applies to you if you're in bermuda. if you're traveling in al engineers, are you entitled to the full panaplea of constitutional protections? here's why it matters. if doj says yes, as an american citizen you're entitled to all your constitutional protections if you're overseas and we can still kill you, despite the fact that you have all your constitutional protections, how is the analysis different if you're on american soil? that's what i wanted to ask the department this week when
6:22 am
judiciary had an oversight hearing but they didn't show for the hearing. >> you've got to show up for the hearings to get answers. >> that would be helpful. >> congressman trey gowdy, always great to see you on the show. interesting thoughts this morning. we appreciate you joining us. >> thank you, have a good sunday. coming up on the show, the process to replace the pope begins in rome. father john is here to tell us what he believes catholics need most in the next pontiff. 30 degrees here in new york city. we'll get you ready for warm weather. we'll show you five places you can visit in the u.s. that feel like summer right now and you're not going to believe the cost on these things. i'm telling you. look at the numbers on the map. you'll want to go to the beach right now. for over 125 years we've been bringing people together. today we'd like people to come together on something that concerns all of us...obesity. and as the nations leading beverage company

6:28 am
it will only be around for the next couple of weeks. a very important question. not so much what do i think catholics want in the next pope, but what the cardinals who are going to be voting and what the vaticanisti, the specialized vatican journalists are talking about now in terms of what's on the minds of the cardinals. let me hear you three things i'm hearing. number one, they want somebody who is in love with god. they want somebody who is passionate and unabashedly courageous about proclaiming the good news of the gospel. that's number one. number two is they want a man of governance, somebody who is able to clean up and to reform the brocbureaucracy that many beliee the curia in the vatican has been under and not a good situation. maybe some of the reasons why pope benedict felt the pressure of his post. that's the second thing. the third thing, of course, is somebody who is also able to
6:29 am
reach out and to face the problems in the secular world. those are the three things that i'm hearing, alisyn. glad you brought up the question. >> are you hearing anything about the possibility, and i'm sorry to be a partisan here, but of an american hope. >> you know, that's not partisan. 2005 in the last conclave, it was unheard of. the americans were here to vote, but it wasn't even a possibility. both in the italian press and beyond, there's a recognition that the cardinals have to think out of the box, and actually find somebody, whether he's black, white, latin, european, who's able to do those three things that i just mentioned to you. number one, be passionate projector of the gospel. number two, somebody who knows how to govern, and three, somebody who knows how to reach out to a very secularized world. the possibility of an american pope is very real, maybe not possible, tucker, and you hit it
6:30 am
on the head. >> father jonathan from rome. i hope you'll keep a detailed account of everything you eat and fill us in when h you retur. >> most importantly. most importantly what i eat, yes. >> thanks, father john. thanks so much. mit graduates have gone on to do many great things, develop the telephone, the photocopier, revolutionize space travel. it's a long impressive list. the latest accomplishment may trump everything that has come before. a major break through on the oreo cook hey. it's the ultimate furry faceoff that's taking the internet by storm. a dog takes its revenge on the family cat. ♪ yeah. progressive mobile is...

welcome back. we start your headlines with a fox news alert now because this is a live look from tampa, florida. crews have begun the demolition of that florida home that was over a huge sink hole where a man is presumed dead this morning after being swallowed up while he was sleeping in his bed. the search for the man, 37-year-old jeffrey bush, was called off because officials said it was just too dangerous to try to rescue or recover him. earlier in the show i was calling it a crane or referring to it as a crane. people on twitter are writing that's an excavator, others are
6:35 am
writing that it's a trackhoe. they're being very specific of what type of thing this is that was pulling debris out of the his bedroom. >> we know the massive hole under bushes bedroom is 20 feet wide and 50 to 60 feet deep. it's still expanding. the tampa house could collapse at any minute. not surprising, by the way, as you noticed his body has still not been recovered. >> you look at all the things from a life, a soccer ball. saw neighbors standing around comforting each well. this massive wildfire in california finally contained but not before massive damage was done. take a look at the huge flames that charred 311 acres. this is in riverside coup. nearly 200 firefighters helped battle the blaze which started three days ago. thankfully no injuries were reported and no word yet on what caused the fire. a 9-1-1 call from california
6:36 am
reveals a dispatcher's desperate night to save a patient while a nurse refuses to get cpr started. >> we can't do cpr. >> hand the phone to the passerby, anybody there can do cpr. give them the phone, please. >> we can't do cpr at this facility. that call came from an independent living facility after an 87-year-old woman had collapsed. for seven minutes the 9-1-1 dispatcher pleads with the nurse to do cpr but she refuses, explaining company policy prohibits it because they are not a skilled nursing facility. >> you're refusing cpr, you're going to let her die. that's a human being. is there anybody there that's willing to help this lady and not let her die? >> not at this time. >> the patient was eventually taken to the hospital where she died. her family said they are satisfied with the facility's actions. maybe she had some sort of agreement not to. it's been a tough year for florida's citrus crop and it could soon affect your wallet.
6:37 am
experts say dry weather, too much fruit on the trees and a citrus disease have caused a huge drop in florida's orange output. typically that would mean a spike in prices, hitting families across the country. thankfully a surplus in fruit last season is expected to keep prices level for the time being. tucker, can you please tell me about your favorite story of the day. i have a softness for animal stories. this is the best of the week. this is a sneaky dog playing prank on his sibling, the cat. they're watching a toy in the bath tup. as the cat moves in for a closer look, the dog bats the cat in for a swim. not surprising the internet is trending this video. >> there is water in there so i'm not sure. >> it's like the greatest video that's ever been shot. love it. >> he must have been doing that repeatedly. that's why they had the camera ready to go. let's check in with rick reichmuth for a look at the forecast. >> i want to see the follow up of that video where the cat
6:38 am
attacks the job. >> that's next week, part two. >> that's a good tease for next week. look at the weather maps, guys. we've got a cold morning this morning across the southeast. tonight another cold one, getting down to 35 in orlando, 30 in savannah. it's just very cold for this time of year. go to tomorrow night, though, and we warm things up, so hit that button one more time for me there, and we'll warm things up for tomorrow night. well, there you go. so temps certainly go up. 60 degrees for a low tomorrow night in new orleans. the improvement begins. look at your forecast for today. across the northeast we'll see a bit of snow. it's kind of a repeat of what you sawed. partly cloudy, a few flurries that will pass from time to time. maybe a few of those snow flurries making their way towards the coastal areas, but nothing that's going to cause any big problems. down to the southeast it's that chilly day today. temps around 20 degrees below where they typically should be. we're warming up in texas, getting to 80. in the northern plains we'll see some snow move in tonight across areas of nort north dakota.
6:39 am
tomorrow it spreads throughout the northern plains and into chicago. out across the west today, snow across the rockies and we'll see a very nice, warm day across the desert southwest. clayton, we'll send it inside to you. >> thanks, rick. still a little chilly. if you're wishing we could fast forward to summer, you are not alone. there are places you can travel to now very cheaply if you can imagine that where it already feels like summer. joining us this week with the week's tomorrow deals, courtney scott. let's start with dallas, texas. you wouldn't think well, this time of year, but i guess so. it's a good spot to go and a great deal. >> it is. temperatures are great. big texan hospitality at the renaissance dallas property. it's a luxury hotel, $494 including a flight and -night stay. the luxury extends to the roof top where there's a beautiful heated pool. you can get a head start on your summer sun bathing. because the weather is so nice,

he 0 stole the spotlight at the national prayer breakfast and he's scheduled to be a speaker. what will his cpac message be. joining us now is dr. ben carson. he's also an author and the recipient of the presidential medal of freedom. >> nice to see you. >> nice to be back. >> you're headed to cpac. what will your message to conservatives be? >> i think we need to recognize that we're actually in quite a bit of trouble as a nation right now, and the ship is about to go off the waterfall, and what we
6:46 am
have to do is utilize every force that we have to turn that ship around rather than be be concerned about the barn kellies on the side of the ship. we need to look at the big picture here, use every resource that we have to turn that ship around and then once we're moving in the right direction, we can deal with the peripheral issues. >> dr. carson, what do you think republicans and more specifically conservatives since you're speaking to them have done wrong in their messaging? >> well, i think there's been a lot of looking at different types of issues and concentrating on those and getting behind those rather than recognizing that if we allow ourselves to be destroyed as a nation economically, everything else will be non-cons conventional. we're very rapidly approaching that point. i don't think people are emphasizing this nearly enough. for that reason, the populous doesn't truly understand the devastating effects of what will
6:47 am
happen if we default and if we destroy ourselves economically. it's happened in the past. we need to recognize that it's happening to us before it happens. >> > so in other words, instead of the side issues that people get bogged down in and the tangents, they need to hit over and over the economy. meanwhile, we've heard it reported that the white house wanted to see an advance copy of your script. i believe that was for the national prayer breakfast, is that right? >> that's correct, but they also wanted to see an advance copy the last time i did the national prayer breakfast, and i suspect they always want to see an advance copy because the president needs to know what he's going to respond to. >> sure. i mean, nothing nefarious. they wanted to see an advance copy, and i'm sure that every white house and every president, as you said, likes to see what the featured ce note speakers will be saying. you did not give the white house this time an advance copy of your speech. why not? >> because i didn't have an advance copy of it. i -- i am a spontaneous speaker.
6:48 am
>> the last time i spoke, president clinton came up and said all right, i want to know who is responsible for putting this guy on for me. he was joking, but it was very funny. >> i'm sure president obama felt the same way at the national prayer breakfast. we all saw that president obama may have felt a little bit uncomfortable. you were standing up there, you got a lot of attention and you really didn't pull any punches, talking about what you think is kind of the wrong direction of the country, so you must have surprised the president or the white house with the content of your speech. >> well, it's so important that we learn how to be able to discuss differences of opinion and do it in a very nice way without calling people names and acting like third grade,. this is really quite embarrassing, sometimes, what i see in our nation. >> that people can't handle having an adult conversation. do you know he what exactly you'll be saying at c pac? >> no. i always ask god to guide my
6:49 am
thoughts and to guide my scalpel, and he always does. >> but do you mean that you will be speaking extemporaneously or do you write out a speech the night before and have notes? >> i will not write out a speech. i may have some bullet points on a piece of paper which i may or may not use. >> you keep them guessing. i like that even you don't know necessarily what you'll be doing. basically the theme, as we understand it, because we do like to get a little of upcoming attraction, is that you will tell conservatives that they need to be more focused on the number one issue in the country. >> absolutely. you know, i love this nation. its been very good to me, and i want to make sure that it is good to my children and my grandchildren. we've got to preserve it. >> and dr. carson, what about you getting involved in politics? i know we've asked you this before. how are you leaning in that direction? >> well, i'm leaning in the direction of continuing to speak out about ways that we can do things in a logical manner, and
6:50 am
i think i'm not interested in going into politics, but i'm interested in helping our nation move in the right direction. >> i'm sorry. logic? that will never work. dr. ben carson, thanks so much. always a pleasure to you can at a to you. >> thank you. straight ahead, what did the white house really say to the veteran watergate reporter, we'll find out. what's more important, gun control or job creation? that's about to become a major debate as gun makers prepare to close their doors and fire their employees they say because of the latest laws.

welcome back. quick hea headlines for you. nascar looking at safety upgrades in light of the horrible crash at daytona last
6:54 am
week. around 30 fans were injured when debris and half of driver kyle larson's car crashed through a gate and a safety fence. nascar saying they'll look into placement of the gates where people can get on and off the track. they think there may be weak spots in the fences. there's a question oreo lovers all over the world have wrestled with. how do you separate the cookies from the cream? is there an easy way to do it. the mit graduates have unveiled an oreo separator device. they broke nearly 900 cookies attempting to perfect the machine and they figured it out, tucker. i know. for most of us, our teeth work just fine. that's big news. well, political news. no deal on the sequester, and that means 85 billion dollars in automatic across the board spending cuts are now in effect. white house economic advisor gene spurling talked about this moments ago. >> i think the president was overall right in that the idea
6:55 am
of an across the board all spending cuts was the idea of republicans, but yes, we put forth the design of how they do this. >> which was the sequester. >> but the right answer. >> which was the sequester. >> the right answer is we all agreed to this. >> part of the reporting. >> sperling explained his side of the controversy he's been embroilebroiled in with bob woo. welcome to you both. i want you to listen to what gene sperlic rling said this morning. >> i was trying to explain to him from a substantive point of view that the idea that the president of the united states was moving the goal posts by asking for the type of balance of tax reform that raised revenues with the speaker boehner himself as you know that had called for as well as long term entitlement together to get
6:56 am
rid of the sequester was not only not moving the goal post, that was the whole idea of the sequester. i think that e-mail was cordial. it was substantive. >> so mark, what is it? iis bob woodward making it up when he claims his reporting showed that increased tax revenue was not on the table, was never supposed to be part of this plan? where did he get that. >> bob woodward, i was reading an interview with him yesterday did agree with gene and said they have great working relationship, that they have a cordial relationship. bob woodward never felt threatened at all by this e-mail. he's a veteran reporter and has a lot of experience. this is sort of how politics works and these guys go back and forth with, you know, with this type of language, but no. whawhat happened is the idea ofn across-the-board spending cut cames from republicans. >> oh, it did not. no, it didn't. >> let me just say. >> where is the balance here?
6:57 am
we've seen at the first of the year pretty dramatic tax increases. pete, were you expecting the president to call for more? >> you know, i think it's in his nature, unfortunately, but look. we had 650 billion dollars of new tax increases in january, you know. >> affecting a miniscule percentage of the american population. >> that's absolutely untrue. now we have -- >> it affects the millionaires only. >> through the sequester gutting our military in virginia, you know, we need to cut spending in washington, but this is not the way to do it. this is a political deal. bob woodward exposed the president on this, embarrassed the president on it because it's his idea. >> this is the wrong way to go about it. >> i want to get both your very quick reactions to a story happening in virginia and maryland as maryland weighs dramatic gun control measures. at least one gun manufacturer, beretta, is saying it might move to virginia from maryland. mark, this is ineviden inevitabt
6:58 am
it? >> every governor wants to attract jobs and private companies to their states. absolutely, virginia i understand, and pete, by the way, congratulations for throwing your hat into the ring on the lieutenant governor race. i don't begrudge them that, but we can't have this discussion about economic, you know, attracting jobs and gun safety and the safety of our school kids at the same time. these are very separate discussions and when we're balancing gun laws, we can't be thinking about what are the economic imperatives. >> that's the very problem. >> virginia, just to be clear, hasn't necessarily wooed gun manufacturers. maryland has driven them away. >> tucker, bone headed liberal policies have economic consequences. my day job is i'm the ce off of a company called disrupter capital. i saw this story in the "washington post". i immediately called and sent a letter with my disrupter capitol
6:59 am
hat on to the head of ber rat aa saying first and foremost, i started two businesses in virginia. come on over, the water is fine. secondly, if you want to relocate, my company would be interested in financing it. i want to make maryland a gun maker free zone, period. >> wait. you said a second ago that our kids would be safer in the wake of this. you think moving beretta from maryland to virginia is going to make any child in america safer? you want to say that with a straight face to the camera? >> i'll say it with a straight face in the wake of newtown and virginia tech in pete's home state where it was the worst massacre by a gunman in american history, this isn't the time to be wooing gun makers. let's wait and have a discussion about gun control legislation. >> you want to gut our civil liberties. >> isn't it easier to get rid of all gun makers then? by your
