[ laughter ] eric bolling. greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> dana: so the charmer-in-chief is at it again. president obama wined and dined lawmakers at a restaurant near the white house and today tried to court them on their turf on capitol hill with the first of four meetings in the next three days. the mission to win support for a big budget deal. the president made room on the dance card for another sit down with abc news today. what is the new public campaign really all about? the national journal asked a senior white house official and that perp revealed what is
behind it -- person revealed red what is behind it all. it's a joke, waste of the president's time. something only being done for the media. greg, let me ask you. who are you going to believe? your own eyes or a senior administration official from the white house? >> greg: i have never trusted my eyes, dana. they let me down many times, usually around last call. like a good grad student president obama thinks you can talk your way to prosperity. is there a reporter left in the country who hasn't sat down with him? i think of one. triumph the insult dog. when you major in sit-ins this comes naturally and the going gets tough and the soft get talking. >> dana: it was very revealing the background quote from a white house official, because on the surface, if you are just watching casually the news, that is good that the president is meeting with them. they can work it out. that is great. what we know is that he never really wanted to sit down with him for the first four years. now he is in trouble and the poll numbers are slipping and he needs to get this deal done
because of the sequester and other things. do you think that a quote like that completely undermines everything they tried to do in the past two weeks? >> andrea: for sign iders i do -- for is insiders i do. for anyone watching this, all they see is president obama reaching out. if you're following politics you are probably skeptical about it. because you're reaching out to them on entitlements, he feels like look, we demonized them on entitlements. i can still meet with them. then the next day, i know this is the next topic, give a speech at organizing for action to try to win back the house of representatives. that is why this isn't believable at all. he has been so partisan as well. i think that he feels, dana that people are watching. and that they may believe some not all he is genuine. >> dana: we know people want to see americans in washington, d.c., working together. why can't you get along and
work something out. one of the things that the republicans felt is that when they have come to the table, and thought they had a deal, after they go back home, they find out wait, that is not the deal that president obama can deliver from his democrats. who is zooming who? >> eric: president obama, here is what, the way i perceive it. sequester didn't work for him. he made a big thing, sequester would be bad. it wasn't. he's trying to back track on that a little bit. continuing resolution, the vote they have to figure out in the next couple of weeks would actually work against him pretty dramatically. it looks like he is trying to make bipartisan effort to reach across the aisle to find some consensus, so it doesn't look like it's all his fault. he will have a hard time. for the first time in four years the senate democrats came up with a budget today. and if you read it, reading through it, senator patty murray delivered it, she said they came up with $1 trillion in spending cuts. half the spending cuts, $250 billion savings from the
afghanistan war, $275 billion in healthcare savings. these aren't spending cuts. they're -- one of them wasn't supposed to be on budget anyway. the other one may or may not come. so he will have a hard time taking this senate democrat budget, taking paul ripe's house budget. and coming up with a compromise. >> dana: bob, eric has it nailed on the specifics. but the bigger picture method, i know, sorry, a banned phrase from yesterday. if you're the democrats do you think it's a good scheduling move to schedule a meeting with the house republicans? at 3:00. and then to go to your partisan arm two hours later where you are basically all planning to attack the republicans in the next day? >> bob: first, you may be missing the big picture here. first, sequester is starting to hurt. in a lot of different places. we can get in that argument over and over again.
what obama did is go out in campaign style and draw the republicans out and blame them. switch over to try to then deal with specifics and deal with them individually. part of the reason for that was he was getting heat -- >> dana: from who? >> bob: from the press, from other people. from us. the president will have a difficult time saying the president of the united states did not consult with us. they are meeting part of the way, he can say, i tried my best. >> andrea: that is why it's a big set up. if you look at the specifics of what they are offering them. the rumor is he is offering a change index on social security, this is something he said he supported months ago. nancy pelosi says he supports it. it's like saying okay, i'll come over to your side a give you my shoe. can you whack yourself over the head with it? that is what he is asking the republicans to do. >> dana: the wall street today said president obama is
having woo his democrat on his own minor social security change, then at same time they expect the republicans to cave on raying higher taxes -- raising higher taxes. >> greg: i don't think this matter to anybody outside our building on sixth avenue. obama knows budget talks fall on deaf ears in education the last 30 years, fact-based information replaced by the feeling. financial education requires thinking. however, anti-bullying conferences need poyiansy in emotion. we will spend our way to oblivion and we obsessed over sex ed. it is time for real life education. forget where do babies come from? we need classes on where does money come from. it's not your daddy's wallet. >> bob: yes, it is. >> greg: my point is nobody knows where money comes from. >> dana: in your personal household? >> eric: you have three
potential budgets. paul ryan's budget that deals with the spending. six or $7 trillion in spending cuts. patry ryan says there is a democrat that deals with the tax increases. president obama was one that -- in fact, every time he tries to propose a budget, it fails in the senate with zero -- >> dana: this is the first time in 92 years the congress moved forward ahead to the president. >> bob: what are the $7 trillion in cuts? >> you can watch paul ryan on "hannity" tonight. >> eric: he talks about hitting entitlement spending. he is very aggressive the things that maybe some of the other people in the house might not like. >> andrea: this is by design. he looks moderated today. you the progressives on the left, hammering him on the chain cpi. he looks presidential, finally, five years late going to work on the hill he is
pulling a clinton. like he is triangulating. he knows the progressives have nowhere else to go. this is good. the left wing, after me, i moved to the middle, though we know he has not. >> dana: one group is not happy. congressional black caucus said to president obama they are unsatisfied with the number of african-americans who have been appointed or not been appointed to the cabinet. do you think they have cause for grievance here or is this just a little bit annoying? >> bob: i do. it's not just the cabinet. it's a lot of sub cabinet positions who are in the white house itself. look at the white house. i've not seen a white house lacking that many blacks as i have seen in this one. you can argue this is the first black president so it covers up a whole lot of things but if i were the black caucus, and i know most of them well, they are not the most mellow people in the world. i would think they would say to themselves at least give us
one or two cabinet secretaries. >> eric: don't go crazy. >> bob: i'm not -- >> eric: no. isn't it racist to say there should be more blacks in the cabinet because of the color of their skin not because they're qualified to be there? >> greg: isn't it racist putting black people in a cabinet? >> eric: i'm sure president obama will put the most qualified people to head his cabinet, i would think, right? >> bob: well, first of all, it i racist to put black people in a cabinet. the answer to the question is if you're from minority group, this is important for you. >> dana: i was thinking about that earlier today with regard to quotas. the latino community also said we expect three cabinet members to be of latino descent. i think it goes to the root of the problem, which is, president obama should be able to put in whoever he thinks would be the most qualified
and help guide him in a second term. >> andrea: i think that is true. i think you can criticize president obama on a lot of things but i don't think you can criticize him on not being diverse enough. if you look at the first round of appointments he had hilda solis at labor, valley jarret, a woman advising him. he had van jones in the white house. he has been very, very diverse. he should be able to put in whoever he wants. again, i don't think is lacking. i think he should pay the women in his white house equal pay. that is the issue. but he is not, not diverse. >> eric: in his two supreme court picks, sotomayor and kagan. there is absolute diversity in there. >> greg: let me make a point. let me ask anybody here if you were going to emergency heart surgery, are you going to ask if the surgeon staff diverse? no. get me the best person for the job. this is why i am sick of the phrase "diversity." i think you can go after obama for this because the left
created this idea. now they pay the piper. is that a racist phrase? i'm a little person with a vestsual tail. i'm not complaining. >> bob: the question from dana does the black caucus feel they're diversified enough? i'm not saying he doesn't have to pick whoever he wants but knowing the caucus well, i'm not surprise they're upset. >> eric: that is different from when you said there should be more -- >> bob: i said they said there should be represen representation. don't put words in my mouth. >> eric: we said what they think -- >> andrea: we heard women groups hammer the president as well for not having enough women. in the election, he had two chief spokes women. i'm not seeing this one. >> dana: i agree. >> greg: wasn't he the first female president? didn't a liberal commentator say that? >> greg: he is the first

works, i guess it would help us -- it would be slippery slope for revealing crimes and maybe things we don't want to know. if it does work i'm for it. i am bothered that the lawyers for him in some ways i wish they would have counseled him to enter a guilty plea and let families not suffer anymore as they try to go through a long-out trial and appeal. >> eric: it means they could be the death penalty. the topic of gun control. check this out. town in georgia proposed a new law requiring every head of household possess a firearm. the town is nelson, georgia, population 1,000. they have only one police officer, and that guy works one eight-hour shift. i'm on board with this. >> greg: mandatory gun ownership, the next thing you know we have mandtory healthcare. why is this radical? at least they're doing it legally.
if an outlaw is going through the country, and looking for a town to hit, he is going to drive right past this one. he will find a gun-free zone. we talked about the theater shooter. he found a place with no guns. >> eric: 90% of the town agrees with this. it isn't a law yet, you go through a city council. it's proposed now. it will be april 1st. the town agrees with it and the police officer agrees with it, too. >> dana: local control. the local control that was tried in new york city yesterday was about soda drinking. i think this one, this town feels if this is what they need to do to protect themselves, i'm for it. if it's mandtory people will be trained. they have the background checks and the laws will be covered. >> eric: if you don't like it, if you object and have a conscientious objection, you don't have to have a gun. >> bob: it sounds to me like one of the worst ideas i've heard. the idea that you have mandatory -- it's mandatory if you don't object and you don't
have a religious problem with it or whatever. that you have to buy a gun when you may not like guns. >> eric: you can object -- >> greg: replace it with healthcare. >> bob: let's not talk healthcare. next make it mandatory for over the have a bazooka on their roof. >> greg: or healthcare. >> bob: this is nra sponsored deal. >> eric: this has nothing to bo do with nra. >> andrea: as much as i love they're doing this and i understand the next town over has the same law on the books. so i love law in theory. i don't like being mandated to do anything. that is like someone saying we mandate you to exercise your first amendment all the time and to exercise it you must say "i love obama." what if you live in a town with 90% of the people believe that way? i put the shoe on other foot. >> dana: pennsylvania county. >> eric: 100%.
