no one was hurt. finally the you go -- ugly. check out this x-ray. two necklaces inside this woman. >> "fox & friends" starts now. >> good morning. it is tuesday, december 17. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. he was protecting his life and it cost him his life. new details on the mall carjacking turned deadly as police still hunt for the murderers. >> meanwhile obamacare navigators prove to be inept and unqualified. we told you that. but the white house has a different take on these people. >> one more point on the republican obsession with sabotaging obamacare. >> that's right, when obamacare fails, those people at the white house just blame the republicans. >> is there something wrong with obamacare? a dollar and a dream could get you a half billion bucks.
today is the mega million's drawing. will you play? i'm wondering if you'll win. "fox & friends," as far as we know, starts now. >> hey, this is christine rosa from "fox & friends." brian kilmeade, your latte is ready. >> it's not like i'm the only one who gets something from starbucks. i'm trying to weave out the coffee. how much coffee do you drink? >> i drink an abnormal amount of coffee. twice a day. >> two cups? >> two in the morning, maybe one in the afternoon. you know what i'm talking about, after school, i need a cup of coffee. >> even if it's caf, get that motor running. >> ladies and gentlemen, we told you about the signature achievement of that guy who lives in that house right there. we're talking about
obamacare. yesterday four u.s. congressmen went to richardson, texas, where they held a field hearing. essentially what they did is they examined all the problems with the navigators. >> the navigators are there to help you out, help out the average american through this brand-new program. they are supposed to be well trained and they're supposed to be able to answer every single one of your questions. >> the problem is they were charged with, according to the oversight committee looking into it, mailing applications in for people when they weren't supposed to. perhaps fudging tax info. >> telling people not to report all their income. >> which leads many to question what is going on with the navigators. it's like a bad version of the transformers. jay carney yesterday said there is nothing wrong with the navigators. it is the republicans that are the problem. >> this is one more data point in the republican obsession with sabotaging obamacare. all navigators must
complete about 20 hours of training, including training on privacy issues. and this training is not a onetime-only process. navigators have regular refresher opportunities where they can share updates, receive information and address issues as they are in the process of helping people in their communities. >> the problem is the surveillance tape showing people not knowing what they're doing, admitting they weren't fully trained and advising people to do things that are flatout illegal. >> they can get a refresher. >> they can refresh something they don't really know yet. >> yesterday at this field hearing in texas, a fellow named randy ferris, the regional administrator for the center for medicare and medicaid services, the people who operate obamacare and the navigators, at one point darrell issa asked mr. ferris if you knew that the applicant's information ended up on the federal website. well, mr. ferris said private information not
stored there. and darrell issa said you know what? you need to watch more fox, i'm afraid. here's darrell issa on what the real navigators are really doing. >> these aren't insurance companies. these aren't government employees. they're essentially community organizers that have been hired, the urban league and other groups. beyond that, the interesting thing is what they're really hired to do is to convince people to get medicaid under this new program, convince them to get a highly subsidized health care plan. they're not there to sell the merits of the insurance. they're there to sell the subsidy. >> you know what? if somebody does qualify for medicaid, they should absolutely get it. but if the stories we've seen are true where some of these navigators have convinced people to lie on their application or put incorrect answers and information, that is flatout wrong. >> it is flatout wrong. what a lot of people find wrong is we go back to the original promise if you like your plan, you can
keep it, that point has changed. jonathan tkpwraourp, the arc -- jonathan grouper, the architect of obamacare, m.i.t. professor in economics and tech, he was saying it is unfortunate that some people might not be doing as well with this new plan. take a listen. >> i don't think it is going to be a large portion. i think it is going to be some and i think that is unfortunate, but i think it is going to be a small minority of that group. i think actually a large share of that group is going to get on the website and find they can get insurance that is better and cheaper than before. but there will be some who will suffer. that is an unfortunate aspect of the website delay: >> what i don't think the obama administration understands and clearly by the secretary reading his statement about sabotaging obamacare is everyone is making decisions regardless of who they voted for. everyone is going to look at their premiums and if they have a plan or not.
i think if that guy jonathan gruber -- if the president says listen, i'm going to put together an obamacare plan and for most americans it is going to be a huge deal and for the economy it is going to be necessary and there will be people who struggle, we're going to work on that as it rolls out, people will appreciate the candor. harry truman, barry goldwater liked candor. instead everything is going to be great, everything is going to be free and when it is not and it isn't, it looks like a disaster and you get this term you like. >> to mr. gruber's point, if people knew last election that some people are going to struggle and that's unfortunate, if they had known that, i don't know that our president would have been reelected. brian, to your point, that whole lie thing, "the washington post" has done their ten whoppers of the year, their annual biggest pinocchios and the one you just mentioned, the one you've heard a million times, one of the top ten.
listen. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. >> as it turns out, you really can't. >> right. unfortunately the president actually backed out of that and said i'm going to try to fix it and nancy pelosi and harry reid didn't get the message. even today they haven't admitted that. also benghazi came up. >> that's right. also on the pinocchio list -- quote -- "the day after benghazi happened, the president said take a listen. >> americans die in benghazi. we also know is clearly they were not in a position where they were adequately protected. the day after it happened, i acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism. >> you see, that's one of the whorps, the day -- one of the whoppers. the day after he did speak about terror. he didn't say the
ambassador died because of an act of terror. and candy crowley, cnn played referee at the presidential debate, she injected, made her point, did that change the outcome of the debate? >> the beginning of the iraq war, it is amazing how many people supported the iraq war when it started after the initial invasion. it's amazing how many people backtracked and turned on the president and everybody else. john kerry tried to do that when he said this, when i was senator we opposed the president's decision to go to iraq. then this thing called the facts came o.u. and the reason, he said in 2003, and i'll paraphrase here. he said i support -- he goes i supported the decision to disarm saddam hussein. so he was firmly for the iraq war but he changed his tune. the other thing the president got a pass on is syria and the red line. they said the syria red line was an ad lib and it
wasn't policy. but the president said that's our red line and totally changed his decision on that red line. >> back to the blurred lines. >> check out glenn kessler's column at the washington. he's got all these pinocchios and all the information to back it up. there was a whole lot of lying going on in washington in the past year. >> i'm ready for some truth. >> speaking of blurry, let's get some coffee in here this morning. >> good morning everyone. hope you're off to a great day. a $10,000 reward is being offered this morning in that deadly carjacking at a new jersey mall. 30-year-old dustin freeland was shot in the head in front of his wife in the parking lot in the short hills mall which is an upscale mall. the carjackers then took off with his range rover which is worth about $10
$1070,000 -- which is worth about $70,000. that range rover was found ten miles away abandoned. a manhunt is underway at this hour. in a few hours from now a judge will sentence the e.p.a.'s highest paid employee for defrauding taxpayers nearly $1 million. john beale avoided doing his real job for more than 12 years by convincing his bosses that he was an undercover agent for the c.i.a. he said that's why he needed to be out of the office so much because, you know, he was a spy. his double cross is going to end up costing him 37 months of his freedom. he's off to the pokey. >> terrifying moments for 60 passengers when their delta flight slid off the runway into the snow. this plane was on its way from minneapolis and was landing at the airport in madison, wisconsin, when it happened. take a listen. >> skidded off and he stopped. you had to look around to
realize, wait a second, we're not on the runway anymore. >> madison has gotten quite a bit of snow recently, also had gusty winds yesterday. fortunately no one was hurt. today mega million's jackpot soaring to $586 million with a cash payout of $316.5 million. the second biggest jackpots in the history of the lottery. if nobody wins tonight, the jackpot for friday's drawing will be about $800 million. those are your headlines at this hour. >> thank you very much. by the way, outside our studios it's snowing here in new york city. >> winter hasn't even started yet. what's going on here? >> coming up in a couple of days. >> whose idea was it to put the show in the northeast. >> a white christmas we're about to have. >> first it's christmas, then a week later you've got new year's. >> "fox & friends" christmas airs christmas eve, december 24 at 8:00

extent, the by pass pump. the key is he never saw himself as sick. >> when i had the first heart attack i was in the middle of my first campaign for congress -fplgt i had three months to go before the election. all of a sudden i'm in the emergency room having a heart attack, 37 years old. i asked my doctor does this mean i'll have to quit the campaign. his response was, dick, hard work never killed anybody. eup found if you didn't act -- i found if you didn't act like a victim, if your mental attitude was suitably adjusted i guess would be the way i put it, an awful lot of it did have to do with your psychological outlook on life. i learned to live life to the fullest and i did. >> now he's tolerating everything. he's taking immunosuppressants. that is why he wears that hat because you run the risk of skin cancer then.
back when he had the pump put in, before he had the regular heart put in, he had the pump. >> he had pack? >> it had to be plugged in sometimes. when he was getting thatonhe wae table for nine hours. afterwards he lingered between life and death for months. he told me something he hardly ever mentions which is in the book which is an out-of-body experience he had. let's watch. >> when i came out from under all of that, the doctors asked me what i remembered. and i remembered a very pleasant experience, being in italy in a small village north of rome eating good italian food, drinking good italian wine. i have a very vivid memory of this village and also of a patio i could sit out on and read the paper, for example, but sitting on the patio i could look across the valley to a road that came up the hill to a far side and there was an old car driving up that road
coming to the village, but it never got there. >> what a vivid memory. >> he told me that car was a scene from "saving private ryan," his absolutely favorite movie and that car was coming to tell the mother that the son had not made it. if that car had ever arrived -- thank god it never did for him. >> you think it was a symbol. is this similar to life experiences you talked to other patients about in the past? >> absolutely. when anyone is in that situation -- he had over 20 units of blood, he had pneumonia after this operation, his heart stopped a couple of times. when that happens i hear the strangest stories. every detail he remembered. this is such a personal book. he's known as such a professional person all the time, known as the person you want in the room if there is a crisis to solve. but this is revealing. he wanted everyone to know the personal side of him so that americans out there that have heart disease -- and millions do, can look at him as a role model and say if he can do it, i can do it.

capitalizing on some poor designs from the 1980's and 1990's but i think a lot of people are doing that. we're seeing people go over the top, maybe add a few things on, whether it's some tinsel or candy canes, but we love the vintage looks as well. we're trying to bring back some of those terrible designs and maybe get recognition to some of those designers that made mistakes back in the day. >> i love them. you guys are great. i saw hockey players wearing the sweaters. >> in your book you've got some recipes. here's a cocktail. everyone gets blitzenned recipes. for snacks you've got reindeer nuts which involves bacon. >> we believe as long as you throw bacon in, the party is always going to be good. adam came up with the reindeer nuts. >> bacon and booze, we'll be all right. >> guys, congratulations.

zuckerman, got a great book out called "the frackers." what is this guy from berkeley saying? >> there is a lot of good when it comes to fracking. creating jobs, manufacturing renaissance in this country. it is because of a few mavericks, stubborn mavericks but there are real environmental benefits that come from fracking. >> because you're not using coal? >> exactly. over the last few years we reduced our carbon dioxide emissions by 12%. we're compliant with the kyoto agreement even though we never signed kyoto. i came back from europe and in london they are addicted to our coal and they're not compliant but we are. >> in your book you list a half dozen wildcatters who took tremendous risks to bring fracking front and center and created jobs. that is the quintessential american story. >> that is what struck me about my book. these are rags to riches guys, immigrants, they are

>> yes, which says when the government wants information about anybody for any reason, it has to -- and wants to spy on anybody for any reason, had could be -- it could be a bank robber planning a bank robbery or a terrorist planning a terrorist act. the government has to present some evidence about that person to a judge and the judge signs a warrant to spy on the person. what the nsa has done is hey, judge, somebody is having a phone call in area code and they'll give the area code. can you give us a warrant to listen to alt calls in that area code? judges are not supposed to do that but some on the fisa court have. >> the judge said he couldn't find a case -- correct me if i am wrong -- where collecting that information led to keeping us safe. is that right? >> the nsa was unable or chose not to demonstrate to this federal judge that the massive data minings are getting all the
phone calls of everybody in a geographic area, whether there is evidence against them or not actually helped keep the country safe. so not only is this unconstitutional because it violates the 4th amendment, not only is this wrong because it permits the government to listen to all phone calls and keep copies of them forever, but there isn't even any evidence that it works. >> what does it mean for surveillance going forward? >> for the time being, nothing, because this judge stopped the effect of his order until it could be appeal to do a higher court. he knows eventually this will go to the supreme court of the united states. but the nsa is not ordered to change its ways unless and until a higher court upholds what this judge, a george w. bush appointee did yesterday. >> 2002 appointee. >> yes. >> if i'm not nsa, i'm thinking in the meantime, i'm going to get as much information as possible right now. would you assume that's the case? >> i don't know that the nsa will do anything differently. this is a scathing opinion in
which this judge accused the nsa of misleading him and other judges and actually quotes other judges in this opinion harshly criticizing the nsa for not being truthful and candid with it. so the nsa is probably reeling, but i don't think they will change their plans unless and until a higher court tells them to. now, i believe this will go to the supreme court because the federal judge yesterday basically criticized two old supreme court opinions that the nsa is relying on saying, you know what? those opinions were written in the precell phone era, in the era when there were 76 million land lines. do you know how many cell phones there are today? 380 million. there is only 310 million americans. how much do you have? >> phones? >> kilmeade has five. >> i have one phone right now. one that i can keep track of. the others they keep track of at the nsa. we have a quote from the judge i want to read it. the government does not cite a single case in which the bulk
collecting stops an imminent terrorist attack. i cannot imagine a more arbitrary invasion than the systemth hispanic high-tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen for purposes of analyzing it without judicial approval. >> it is startling to me that the nsa was not able to demonstrate any success because its whole argument before congress and in the public arena is we have kept you safe, we have kept you safe, we have kept you safe. my argument is that the government has to keep us free safe. but they haven't been able to demonstrate to this judge an instance in which this worked and kept us safe. it's mystifying to why they wouldn't have found one or told them about one. >> curious. >> this is going to keep going on. >> thank you. >> always a pleasure. >> big opinion by that judge. coming up, ford sells one of these every 42 seconds. can you guess what vehicle we're talking about? stick around.

>> maybe make a t-shirt. well, you know who is on to that? senator tim scott of south carolina said no, no, it's not getting better. those people that you're talking about, jim carney, they don't exist. it's actually getting worse. >> there is no way in the world you can add tens of thousands of government employees of a $400 million web site and see premiums go down and not up. premiumspremiumspremiums are sk. they're about price. those are about the cost. the costs are exploding. and unfortunately, we're going to see more bad news once the 7 million young people do not enroll. then next year, year two, the premiums will be based on the actual information which will be dismal, which means we'll have worse rates. not better rates. >> they'll triple the fines to make those who want to sit out and not pay, not take part, really pay the price, which will make obamacare even more unpopular. to your point before, i think at some point people, especially
those now eligible for medicaid, which means you're going to get some subduces and -- subsidies, a percentage will say i like it. here is the question: how many people, compared to how many people are going to be kicked off their plan will have their premiums go up, the deductibles go sky high? if that is 50/50, it's different than the president told us because essentially he said there would be a pain free transition. the horrible rich people would pay the price and in the end, america would be a better place. >> you know what? the medicaid program for the truly poor has existed for a number of years. and if the whole idea was to get people on that, it's working. but the idea was to get people who have been denied insurance to get them insurance. yesterday they did hold a field hearing in richardson, texas, darrell issa and four other u.s. congressmen, including the republican from texas. mr. ferranholt asked the regional administrator for the
centers for medicare and medicaid services and mr. ferranholt found all sorts of problems so far with how these navigators are being certified. watch this. >> a couple quick follow-ups. you testified that you can become a navigator by taking an on-line webinar with no fingerprint, y'all don't even keep a copy of the driver's license, there is no photo. is there even a description of the person, the navigator certificates? >> i am not aware. i will be happy to check to find out exactly what we do keep. >> okay. and it's my understanding that a member of our staff here in under three hours was able to complete the navigator course and the certificate was simply printed out on a laser printer. i'm no expert forger, but i know how to use photo shop. this sounds like you might be able to do it with a pair of
scissors, scotch tape and a photocopier. >> really intrigued by the fact that you say they were able to do that in three hours and principal it out themselves. i'd like to get more information on that if i could. >> yeah. because we were told they were certified for 20 hours. ferranhold said someone on my staff did it in three. which is it? >> he doesn't seem to know really. >> last week we closed out talking about the budget. they got together on the house and senate budget committee chairman, came together, at which time republicans and democrats seemed equally upset saying we didn't get what we wanted, so it seems to be a compromise. when it went to the senate, people thought it would be ally-up. right now they need eight republican votes that won't be there. among those unhappy with this deal, although he was in our living room, did not seem upset by this, is the military because they'll have to pay more into their pensions. the spokesperson, her husband is a naval office retiring after two decades serving in our
military and in two wars. she says the additional money that we're going to be losing and contributing for our pensions is unacceptable. listen. >> i'll paraphrase a quote by george washington that future generations are going to look how this generation treated their veterans before they elect to serve. and what happens when nobody believes the promises and the word given by members of congress anymore and they don't like -- they don't trust their promises will be honored? we won't have people to serve. we won't have an all volunteer military any longer. those are consequences that every american needs to evaluate when they're talking about whether or not to support something like this bill. i urge every american out there to really take a hard look, if they're willing to come after military retirees in such a manner that wasn't necessarily fully disclosed to the american people in time for us to do something and to act on it, really take a look at who is safe. the answer to that is nobody.
>> that is an astute remark by a military spouse. when you have the voice of military spouse, it should be heard. she's referring back to in september, obama released keep principles where he was going to reform the military. within that he grandfathered in provisions where those currently serving in the military would be protected here. so last night on twitter after hearing comments like that, they had a town hall on twitter, #keepthepromise. it was going on fire because of course we want those who give their life and sacrifice to forget our freedoms to feel safe and protected. >> absolutely. because the commander in chief promised with the principles that if your current military or you're retired, your benefits will not go down. yet president obama was one of the first people who said, okay. i like this, ryan-murray budget deal. i'll sign on to that. but it does not grandfather anybody in. so everybody is going to wind up with a cut. what's interesting, though, is unless you're a federal
employee, because they, too, according to the ryan-murray deal, they would have to start putting more into their pension fund. however, that would only be for new hires because federal employees have a union, whereas members of the military only have the word of the government that they will take care of them. >> right. you can't blame the president for this. this came, he said it's okay. but this came from paul ryan and senator murray and paul ryan said at 62, they'll get a cost of living raise. but in between then is basically as it stands. so paul ryan is getting a lot of blowback. that's why a lot of people on the republican side in the senate are not going along with it. >> they're just looking at the numbers, though. last week they said the impact on the actual deficit, what money this will save here is nothing compared to how it actually impacts personally the veterans and their families. so i think the scale seems to be
tilted one way. if anyone should be keeping a promise to those in the military, many people as though the commander in chief should be the one to step up and make sure that happens. >> i agree. coming up, what do president reagan and president obama have in common? our next guest studied the candidates and campaigns to find out what made them tick what, what his inside information might mean for republicans in 2016. >> it's hang again, they may say go usa, but these mittens are anything but american. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] you'll only find advil, the #1 selling pain reliever, in one cold medicine. advil congestion relief. it delivers a one-two punch at pain and sinus pressure with the power of advil and a nasal decongestant in a single pill. advil congestion relief.

what do president reagan and president obama have in common? our next guest studied the two and their campaigns and found out what led them to victory. is that the strategy the gop needs in the next presidential election? lance torrence is a republican pollster and a political strategist and the author of this new book "how republicans can win a changing america." good morning to you. >> glad to be here. >> what did the two, fdr and reagan have in common? >> well, both presidential candidates could appeal to a lot greater group than simply the republican base, we know that. what's interesting about the obama situation now is that we can have a potential for a great blow back in the 2014 congressional elections. we know midterm elections have more passionate voters. but it looks like the republicans have a great opportunity to pull a number of congressmen in. it was just in 2010 that republicans gained over 60 some odd congressmen because of the original inception of obamacare.
>> right. and now it's being instituted and there is hell to pay here. you've got lessons for the republicans. if they want to win, the first one is you say get off the social issues. >> the social issues are obviously important, but they shouldn't be in first or second place. it should be your third batter in the line - up in that instance. we've been debating and adjudicating the culture war since the '60s. i think it's time to put it to rest. it maintained itself mostly. let's get on to the republican core themes that have been successful. national security, obviously fiscal sanity, and also one of the things that hurt the republican party of late is they failed to acknowledge some of the demographic shifts since reagan was elected. we better acknowledge since 1980, hispanics are now 10% of the total vote. they used to be 1%. women around 53% of the total vote. they used to be 48. unions are less. white voters have gone from 90%
to 70%. so this is a big change. >> i tell you what, in the last presidential election, mitt romney kept trying to bring it back to the economy, but the main stream media kept saying, look, there is a war on women. republicans hate women and dancing horses. >> you have to go beyond the media if you can. reagan learned how to do that. we are the party of reagan. but most important thing is republican party has a great opportunity coming up in 2014 with this big congressional election. but one of the strategic errors they made in the past, 2010 is a good example and even 1996 after they won big with almost 50 congressmen in the '94 election was that they didn't put it together with a presidential. this book was written with a sense of historical urgency that we better put a three-year game plan together and not a one year congressional midterm election plan. >> you say that the republican party should pick candidates from outside washington, d.c you're not talking about congressmen. you're talking about governors. >> i don't want any more
senators or congressmen on the ticket. we have to be the outside party. we're not going to be the inside institutional party. the republican party needs to be the reform party, need to be from outside, they need governors that have not only executive experience, but also the idea that they've dealt with the federal government and all its pluses and minuses. that's the kind of person that i think will do well in this new age. >> if the republicans follow your advice, can they win next time? >> meaning 14 or 16? >> 16. >> yes, they can, but they're going to have to have a very different strategy. we call it the reagan revolution in 1980. gingrich revolution in 1994. we better have some kind of a revolutionary appeal to the american public because this will become a minority party for permanent and maybe decades to come if they don't get their act together. hispanic is a big one. >> lance, thank you very much. his book is "how republicans can win in a changing america." thank you.

and he was just the happiest kid, he really was. he went to bed every night happy and woke up giggling. he just made everyone happy. we wanted that legacy to remain. so we came up with this idea 'cause i said to my wife after he passed that we have to make his legacy go on. i wanted that. i felt there was a meaning to his name and our name. that's what we wanted to accomplish, was to perform acts of kindness that were acted upon us. >> that's what you asked people to do. 20,000 cards have been distributed. it's like a pay it forward. so when you see an act of kindness or do it, you literally pass the card on. what's the web site? >> reesepectlife.com.

but last night we dropped off three carloads of toys to a local service league and it filled half the room. they were just so excited because they could be santa's helpers and bring joy to somebody else, a child that can't afford a toy or something during the christmas time. >> all that can't bring your baby back. what do you hope people take from this and do? >> our goal in forming this was -- i saw the power of the kindness that was given to us and how it raised us back to a functional level and i'm a science teacher and i told my wife, i said, when you have a negative, you counter it with a positive. that equals a neutral.
then we said, what if we're already neutral? what if people are already okay and we do something positive? it raises them up even further. i said, let's do that. let's raise everybody up and we'll use our son as the inspiration to do it. >> we certainly will have joy taking part in this and keeping his spirit alive. we wish you peace this christmas season. >> thank you very much. >> truly an awesome thing you're doing. >> thank you. >> i like that equation scientifically. >> can't help it. >> thank you. >> steve, over to you. >> thank you very much. next up on this tuesday, it's happening again. they may say go usa, but these mittens are not american. what? plus, the hess trucks are back. this year's new model is a blast from the hess truck past. ♪ ho ho ho

not only is this wrong because it permits the government to listen to all phone calls and keep copies of them forever, but there isn't even any evidence that it works. >> according to the judge, our judge napolitano, the ruling will eventually go before the supreme court. but as of now, the nsa doesn't have to change its ways until a higher court upholds that decision. of course, we'll keep watching that important story. i know so many of you care a lot about this. taking a ride in the wrong direction. look at this. a massachusetts driver accidentally hits the gas instead of the brake and she crashes through a hardware store, slamming her car right into the checkout counter and some christmas trees. it turns out she had a wooden block that was taped to the gas pedal because she's a petite little gal and that apparently helped her reach it. now she's headed to court to face a charge of negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

coo of disrupter company joins us now. >> i'm usually not very complimentary of the "washington post," but it was exhaustive. what they found is that president obama time and time again told agencies to delay rulings that they thought, the administration thought would impact and hurt their chances for election. >> for example the delayed rules, elements of obamacare we're all experiencing right now. for example, you can keep your plan. environmental initiatives like the epa is putting out there and workers safety requirements which definitely indirectly and directly affect the economy. >> absolutely, brian. look, president obama, when he was a candidate in 2008 and in 2012, targeted virginia. in 2008 he was in southwest coal country in virginia all the time, said he would wake up every morning in the white house thinking of those people and lo and behold, he creates this war
on control, is really trying to outlaw and make epa changes in 2013 that is almost going to outlaw the industry, impacting tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of jobs in virginia. the vote would have been different had those rules come out in 2012. >> let me ask you something: do you fault the romney campaign at all or the rnc at all for not seeing this pattern and these delays and not bringing it to light? >> you know, i don't, brian. this is a president who really tried to hold himself as holier than thou, came in in 2008, railed against the clintons as being partisan hacks, said that he was going to be, quote, the most transparent president in history. i'm not saying that the romney campaign believed him or the rnc believed him, but these were shady, underhanded dealings that were going on in his administration that only came to light when these egregious policies came out in 2013.
>> think about this, the president is having one of the worst first years his second term in modern american history. it's because essentially he put all these things on hold and the other decisions he's made internationally in order to have a -- he sacrificed a four-year term really for the first year at the very least, the first year of that brand-new term. >> brian, i think you're right. i think the problem that history will show with this president is there was so much promise with him as a campaigner. he's an unbelievable campaigner, but he's a pretty lousy manager and a lousy president. he's not transparents at all. and in fact, i think history will show he's one of the most partisan presidents, not a uniter at all, that we've had in generations. that will be the knock on barak obama. >> he knew his agenda and his policies would be unpopular. he didn't get rid of them. he just put them on hold where it can't hurt him.
it could hurt him in the midterms. thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. 11 minutes before the top of the hour. remember this video, the shrimp on the treadmill? you should, you're paying for it. today we've got washington's brand-new waste book and it's out and available. we'll examine. then cheryl casone has top companies hiring seasonal help. that story next. ♪ ♪ i'm overhe hill. my body doesn't work the way it used to. past my prime? i'm a victim of a slowin? i don't think so. great grains protein blend. protein from natural ingredients

helping people in their communities. >> like in flip, it's a refresher course. it's all ball bearings. what is he talking about? >> the baghdad bob of obamacare, jay cancery. no problems. ignore the problems. these navigators are trained professionals. well, 20 hours of training and they get their refresher courses, continuing navigator education, i guess. look, i think the new poll that came out today devastating news for the president, front of the "washington post," his approval numbers plummeted. the new abc "washington post" poll, and for a reason. i almost at this point feel sorry for jay carney. he has to go out there every day and deny facts. that's an awful job. imagine if you just had to deny basic facts every day and look really earnest when you do it. >> remember tony snow used to handle it differently? he was dealing with the iraq war, for goodness sakes. he used to talk about what was going on, where we're heading. he wouldn't tell people they were wrong when they were right.
>> this is part of the reason why i think the president and the democrats are suffering so much today in the polls is because people see this for what it is finally. this is more politicalization of what is a policy problem. from the beginning, i think this president has seen every hurdle, whether in the economy or in foreign policy or now with obamacare, as a political hurdle to be cleared. in fact, this is actually a substantive governance problem that requires really smart people to deal with and to deal with without a political agenda. and the problem is they can't do that. it's like they're genetically incapable of handling this for what it is. this is a failure in policy. not pr. we're not selling or not the republicans being mean. it's a failure in obamacare working for the average person. that's the problem. >> that is the problem for the administration and unfortunately, that's the problem for all of us. laura, i want to talk about this
case where this 16-year-old kid, he stole some beer, i think, and then got drunk, crashed into and killed four people. his parents hired a defense attorney to come up with a defense that he was suffering from affluenza. they were affluent. he had everything in life. and so he was a slacker and he couldn't be held responsible because life was so good and he's the victim. now you want the judge in this bounced. why? >> gene boyd, the judge here, sentenced this kid to ten years probation and basically it's going to cost about $450,000. the parents are going to front the cost. he's going to be in essentially a country club kind of facility. actually beautiful facility where he's going to spend some his time and being rehabbed from being too rich. and that same judge a few years back sentenced a 14-year-old
black kid to a year in -- excuse me. ten years in jail for -- he punched somebody and the person died. okay? so look, two cases are different. there are a different set of facts. but in this case, when the dense counsel -- and i used to be a defense counsel -- when the defense counsel makes this preposterous claim of affluenza, the boy is too rich and allows that absurd defense in, that shows this judge is completely removed from the reality of the way most people live their lives. to give this kid ten years probation in a country club? we have four people dead and another one paralyzed because this kid ran into this other suv, sending this good samaritan pastor and three other people flying 60 yards in the air. okay? this is an outrage and i think when people see this case and look at the facts of this case, this judge could be removed from her position by rick perry, the
governor of texas. there is a lot of people building on change.org, a big petition to get this judge removed, put pressure there. i think that should happen. >> well said. i know you heard this, nancy pelosi unleashing, republicans are on an antiwoman crusade. it's all because they don't like women. really, for me, you take the power away from women and make choices in their family, that's antiwoman. but let's listen to her one more time for fun. >> disrespect, disrespect for the role that women have in terms of exercising their judgment about their responsibility, disrespect for women in the workplace by not passing equal pay for equal work. pay equity. without raising the minimum wage 62% of the people who make the minimum wage are women. without valuing the time of women with paid sick leave, which is something that we've been advocating. without joining us in our when women succeed, america succeeds. >> your thoughts?
>> sorry. was nancy pelosi just playing back like an mp 3 file? is there a microchip implanted in her chest of what they played in the last campaign? that is such an old saw that she's trying to sell. i love the msnbc anchor, the best thing about that was the cut away shot where she's going like this -- great insight, nancy. women across the country are getting their policies canceled, getting their personal information compromised, losing their cherished health care providers, doctors who are retiring. that's the war on women. the war on women's pocketbooks and the war on women's independence of choice. elisabeth, you hit the nail on the head. they are eroding women's choices in one of the most sacred areas of their lives, which is healthcare. that is a war on women's independence, in choice. that's going to be a winning narrative for conservatives next year. i think nancy pelosi knows it. they are out of line, my friend. they are nothing else to say.
>> laura, where do you stand on this budget? do you think it will pass in the senate this week? >> probably -- there are going to be hiccups in the senate for it. but i think the establishment and the republican party is basically said this is all we're going to get. it's the best we're going to do. we're going to get past this and try to win more seats. i think it will probably pass. didn't really accomplish anything. >> fight another day. thank you very much. we know you got to do your radio show. >> thank you very much. happy christmas. merry christmas. >> thank you. >> and happy new year. coming up, 'tis the season for scamming. but don't let it ruin your christmas. peter johnson, jr. is exposing the 12 scams of christmas next. right. and he's really a man of the people. the king who helped push this driver out of the snow. >> it's awesome.

residing in a residential group care setting and since that story went viral, so to speak, he has been placed with a foster family where he's getting to know them and he's also been spending time with a prospective adoptive family where he'll spend his holidays. >> that is a complete turn around. i know that there were thousands, tens of thousands and 20,000 responses at first to his plea, which is remarkable and speaks to the heart of people who just truly want a child. we have hundreds of thousands of kids in the system waiting to be adopted. what's your message today, 'cause this is a great story. >> yes. it's an awesome story. we were very -- he has been very humbled by this entire process. and the continued outpour of support for not only himself, but other foster kids just like him that are in need of a forever family. in the tampa bay area alone, we have over 250 children just like

amman to see the snow removal efforts and came upon a stuck car. >> probably just wanted to see the snow, period. >> so he helped out. >> good samaritan. >> 25 minutes before the top of the hour. maria molina is outside our world headquarters where it kind of is snowing off and on. >> yeah. it's been snowing off and on. luckily we're not expecting more than a foot of snow here in new york city. but some areas across new england could be looking at that in terms of accumulation throughout the day today and also into tomorrow. let's take a look at the radar picture so you can see what's going on. we have a quick-moving clipper system that slipped down from canada moving so fast, parts of pennsylvania, upstate new york, and also across the new york city area. we do currently have winter weather advisories stretching from pennsylvania all the way up to maine and there in that shading in pink, that's that winter storm warning where i told you we could pick up a foot of snow. otherwise generally speaking, three to six inches across parts of massachusetts, connecticut, upstate new york and two to now farther south.
that's what we're expecting here in new york city, although i think we'll be on the lower end of that. the storm, a quick-moving storm system will be out of the area for most cities across the northeast as we head into this evening. parts of maine, you'll continue to see impacts through the evening rush tonight and the same goes for you in the city of boston. please drive carefully as you head home from work later this evening. otherwise current wind chill temperatures across parts of the great lakes, it is very chilly out there. currently feels like 7 degrees in chicago and it does feel like about 16 degrees here in new york city. i'll confirm that. let's head over to you, brian. >> thanks a lot. you can come in now. time for monday night football highlights. they played last night. ravens brought their kicker with them, that's all they need to do beat the lyons. reggie bush was good. in the end, it would be five field goals for justin tucker, five of five. there you go. 38 seconds left would be the winner. final score 18-16. ravens hanging in there for the
victory. controversy coming out of the arsenio hall show. one of the greatest runningbacks in history also an actor, big-time political activist, especially in the '60s, the nfl hall of famer and his wife campaigned for president obama, but recently he was asked for his opinion on the president and how he's doing. listen to what he said. >> i like him as a human being, but somehow it seems like he's over his head. but if i had to say does he rate an a or d, it would be very difficult. i'd give him a c. >> he went on to say that you have to be able to work across party lines as a president. and does anyone think this president has worked across party lines? jim brown comes out and speaks out, as usual. by the way, on saturday, as far as i know, this will be the last signing i have. 11:00 o'clock at the barnes & noble in mcclain, virginia. then later on at 3:00 o'clock at george washington's house in

are searching for two thugs considered armed and dangerous and they are involved in the deadly carjacking we believe at the new jersey mall. this as two $10,000 rewards are being offered for their capture. >> that's right. wnyw reporter theresa joins us live from hoboken with the latest on the manhunt. theresa, what can you tell us at this point? >> good morning. here in hoboken when you talk to neighbors who knew the victim, who has been identified as dustin freedland, they are shocked and saddened by this. the general response is, you took the car, did you need to take his life? as we talk to people, we gain a better understanding of this man and how he lived his life. we are told he's a 30-year-old -- or was a 30-year-old patent attorney who, according to his linkedin profile, analyzed legal claims for his family's business. he and his wife just moved here. they were planning to start a family. there is no indication yet from
authorities why exactly this couple was chosen on sunday night. we do know they were ambushed outside of the short hills mall, just after 9:00 o'clock, two men approached their 2012 range rover suv. multiple shots were fired. one hitting dustin in the head. the car was found i didn't do abandoned -- yesterday abandoned in new york. authorities are still trying to piece together the exact cause of this and the motive, they tell us they do believe that this couple is simply the latest victims of a luxury carjacking ring. so we're trying to get more information, so are police. they tell us they're hoping to use a surveillance video found in the parking lot of the mall that was an area heavily surveilled. they're hoping that gives them some clues to help them find the killer. that's the latest from hoboken. now back to you in the studio. >> theresa, i notice that there is the major crime task force that has the tips line up. do they have a description of the suspects that they've released? >> reporter: the only thing that
we have heard from the county prosecutor, two dark skinned men. we haven't heard anything about accents or any sort of body markings, nothing about height or weight. just two dark-skinned men. doesn't narrow it down any. they were hoping to be able to connect those two people to the car. but again, as i mentioned, that car was abandoned in newark. back to you. >> thank you. thanks. coming up, she's one of christian music's biggest stars. ♪ the sun will always shine ♪ he's going to walk away >> natalie grant performing her newest single live, up next. first let's check in with elisabeth's co-host, bill hemmer, because you guys will be together on new year's eve. >> i'm getting ready. hasselbeck, how are you doing? >> i'm doing great. brian is taking issue with you. >> i know. there is a --
