6:02 am
kinds of debate and the candidates trying to ramp up their campaigns before the new hampshire primary and rick santorum up there in new hampshire is actually doing an interesting thing, he is sticking out there through tuesday and not headed down to south carolina, and ramping up the attacks on mitt romney. listen to rick santorum. >> the rhetoric is i will repeal obamacare and i am not for government run health care. when he was governor of massachusetts he was for the health care, the highest cost health care in the nation, no place where health care is more expensive than massachusetts and, the people that were added to the health rolls here in massachusetts south of here, well over half were government, addednd the government payroll and to have someone would has been for individual mandates and government run health care and a top down approach to solving the problem is the wrong person to put up against president obama. >>alisyn: so mitt romney has a
6:03 am
big bull's eye, and the other competitors are attacking him. newt gingrich plans to launch a new attack ad against romney in south carolina. one calling him timid and the other dealing with his abortion stand when he was a massachusetts governor. so, the gloves are off. >>dave: what is interesting newt gingrich has been very critical of mitt romney and his super pang -- pac and now newt gingrich 'pac is rolling out a 27-minute video attacking mitt romney. the very thing that newt gingrich has been attacking mitt romney for doing, newt gingrich is now doing, can't wait to ask him about that. live on the program. >> and we will have karl rove. he is saying he is not sure the attacks from newt gingrich are working and he needs to remember who got him here in the first place. take a listen. >> speaker gingrich was leading
6:04 am
iowa with 32 percent of the vote, 33 percent, december 3rd and he ran fourth! to be sitting there lecturing about who could go on to the next stage, it is unpresidental. remember what put him in the lead, people thought he was the best debater because he was the most knowledgeable and they liked him and he had a big vision for the country but now he sounded like an angry politician: >> we have not had a debate since the middle of december and people thought that elevated newt gingrich to the level. great debate spills, so, tonight, this could, it was interesting all week how things happened but this weekend it could be the precursor for new hampshire and south carolina. >>dave: tonight and tomorrow morning. will he attack or stay positive as in the debate before and show his extensive knowledge of virtually every topic.
6:05 am
that is the question. >>alisyn: and in new hampshire the polls, although you can never trust the presidents they she romney with a great lead. but anything could be turned around. looking ahead to south carolina, romney is even already looking ahead to south carolina. he was there yesterday. he was stumping with governor haley. he focused on president obama. >> i don't think the president understands how the economy works, he subscribes to something i call crony capital im, not in free markets and free people pursuing their dreams but a government that pays back favors. a government that says, well, organized labor at the governmental level helped my election campaign says president obama is we added 135,000 federal jobs under his administration. and of course we have a lot of help from the afl-cio so we will stack the national labor
6:06 am
relations board with union stooges to make sure they will give states that are right-to-work short end of the straw and not people from being able to build factories like boeing. that is wrong, we have to stop it and turned it around. >> tonight he will have a big bull's eye on him during the debate and we will see how he handles it and ask our guests what they see. >>alisyn: you have karl rove and newt gingrich and i raise you, so, big political day here. >>dave: we lost out in south carolina because of the betting he took in new hampshire and the time spent there so great person to speak to, to emphasize the point. >>alisyn: thank you. and now the news, we start with brand new video from dallas, texas, an american teenager mistakenly reported to colombia reported to the united states. the 15-year-old ran away from home a year ago and was arrested
6:07 am
for shoplifting and told police she was illegal immigrant. that was a lie, and that led her to being deported back in may. and her family wants it know why officials did not see through her step especially since she doesn't even spoke respondish. well, police releasing the first 9-1-1 call from the new year's day shooting from washington, which killed a ranger and mother of two, margaret anderson. >> spots fires and officer down. >>alisyn: police found the shooter, a 24-year-old a day later in the woods and they believe he froze to death. officials say they plan to re-open the park this morning to the public. the white house's proposed budget could mean more money from federal workers, the half percent increase is the first raise since a pay freeze started
6:08 am
in 2010 which needs congressional approval but some have calls for the freeze to continue for another year and the budget proposal will be unveiled early next month. an emotional, weekend forgive gabrielle giffords, one year since the shooting massacre at a tucson safeway that killed six and left her and 12 others wounded. gabrielle giffords was holding a meet and growth and last night she attended a memorial honoring a victim. a staffer. she will also appear at a vigil tomorrow night with her husband who we will be speaking to tomorrow on the show. >>dave: and now a check on the weather the we have not seen you in the new year. happy new year. rick: everyone is here. the gang is back together. it folks good. warm and fuzzy. eastern part of the country is extremely warm. we had a cold spell but now the temperatures are in the 50's across the eastern seaboard.
6:09 am
winter was here for a few days. a few showers in the southeast and that will change this week. and big snow moving into the central rockies around 6". and as you wake up, 47 in new york city, and 54 in atlanta, and crazy warm temperatures it, and more records broken today, and that is ahead of that front you see cutting right across parts of the ohio valley so to the east of that, looking warm and we will see the showers pop up across parts of the southeast for tomorrows today. across the west, looking calm and you see moisture this across places like utah that will be snow in utah and the rockies of colorado, up to 6 itch today. temperatures still locking nice, cooler than a couple of days ago but locking nice for this time of year. tomorrow, the temperatures are not changing much, and we will remain quite warm. there are caseys that winter
6:10 am
will return by the end of the week and maybe getting temperatures below average but too early to say. >> vacation today in new york. >> i'll take it. >> i like the heat. >>dave: we need some snow, rick. snow. snow. >>clayton: and the nfl playoff games and it is mild. and speaking of the environment and the weather we will talk about the epa this morning because they have over the past year given out some different interesting grants to nonprofit organizations. 46 different nonprofit organizations. $1 million in 2011 but you could have a problem with some of the ways the money was spent. >>dave: what the heck is an environmental justice grant? $23 million handed out isn't now measure for things such as ... dance theater. money to teach local youth about air pollution.
6:11 am
>>clayton: dancing to air pollution? >>dave: of course, clayton. that makes sense. >>dave: interpretive dance to air pollution? >>alisyn: to educate people about pollution or the environment. some sound laughable but this are some that sound important like, ridding a project or a community bed bedbugs. that sounds valuable if your apartment building is riddled with bedbugs it could probably use a grant, so some of the, in my ... >>clayton: why wouldn't the slumlord? i have lived in some terrible apartments in pittsburgh, i was rats climbing through the ceiling, i called the landlord: eventually, he got a person out there, exterminator. >>alisyn: in knock, we know
6:12 am
that word: exterminator. environmental justice is provided for some communities that are hazardous or or dirty or filthy and maybe they need help. >>dave: some are teaching the concept of global warming to middle schoolers and some argue it is not a perfect science. should your taxpayer dollars go to environmental justice. follow us on twitter. we need more followers. new year's resolution, if you are here to twitter, sign up, and choose a picture, too, not the cheesy avatar. >>alisyn: what recovery? president obama says he has helped the middle class but data shows americans are losing income.
6:13 am
forty years ago, he wasn't looking for financial advice. back then he had something more important to do. he wasn't focused on his future. but fortunately, somebody else was. at usaa we provide retirement planning for our military, veterans and their families. now more than ever, it's important to get financial advice from people who share your military values. for our free usaa retirement guide, call 877-242-usaa.
6:14 am
like many chefs today, i feel the best approach to food is to keep it whole for better nutrition. and that's what they do with great grains cereal. see the seam on the wheat grain? same as on the flake. because great grains steams and bakes the actual whole grain. now check out the other guy's flake. hello, no seam. because it's more processed. now, which do you suppose has better nutrition for you? mmm. great grains. the whole whole grain cereal. metamucil uses super hard working psyllium fiber, which gels to remove unsexy waste and reduce cholesterol. taking psyllium fiber won't make you a model but you should feel a little more super.
6:15 am
metamucil. down with cholesterol.
6:16 am
>>alisyn: good news, with the unemployment rate dropping to 8.5 percent, the lowest in three years and 200,000 jobs were added last month. >>clayton: but is it all good news? good morning, nicole. happy new year. breakdown the numbers. you look at jobs numbers and the way i understand it, it would take seven years of this type of a number to get back to 2008? >>guest: something like that with 13 million members unemployed and the numbers yesterday, it feels good and beat expectation but the big picture is that it is tainted, and temporary because it was a holiday season. the administration knows it, we know it, we are not being follows. this is retail hiring, transportation hiring, couriers, warehousing, all about the
6:17 am
holidays. packing the gifts. sending the gifts. someone ringing up and taking your cash at that time? do experts think it will go up? i would watch for a few months. they do tons and tons of revisions all the time. so, it certainly --. >>clayton: so the december numbers could go up. or down. when he surprised. >>guest: from 8.5 percent, it could tick up, again. >>clayton: workers' pay is a big issue. the amount of machine you take home may not as high, right? and according to the recession and the numbers here 3.2 percent real income fell dug the recession so people do not pocket as much. >>guest: that is right. so, over the last, say, decade, we lost $6,000 in pay but a majority under this administration in the last few years where you have seen accelerate the loss in wages so the big picture is that people
6:18 am
are making less during the recovery, what recovery? and the people that are under the age of 25 or up to 34, black members, families with three children, or more, these folks are actually seeing their wages decline. so, what does the recovery mean? >>guest: well, great question. it is just that we are not in depression. you seeing your home, that is the biggest asset, the home values are still diminished. greatly diminished. and the jobs created, some jobs are created and it is not as bad, but, certainly not at pace we needed and we have noticed a lot of the men that are coming back into the workforce are taking and of the women's roles so they are out of construction and ifens and going into education and retail and health care. it is an interesting reversal. >>clayton: fingers crossed that the numbers trend up.
6:19 am
>>guest: the stock market is up. that is a little bit of good news. >>clayton: and there is now a starbucks on the floor of the new york stock exchange. >>guest: that is a gift for me: >>alisyn: thank you for coming in. >> they have one goal in mind, get president obama out of the white house. but does the tea party have an overall g.o.p. favorite? >> you saw them in the movies and now you can check out real thing: treasures from the titanic, recovered from the bottom of the ocean and some of these could be yours. my name is robin. i'm a wife, i'm a mom... and chantix worked for me. it's a medication i could take and still smoke,
6:20 am
while it built up in my system. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantiis proven to help people quit smoking. it reduthe urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking orood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reactioto it. if you develop these, stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart orlood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. my inspiration for quitting were my sons. they were my little cheering squad. [ laughs ] [ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
6:21 am
6:22 am
6:23 am
>>alisyn: after the nuclear disaster japan will set a 40-year limit on nuclear reactors and require them to shut down after that time. 54 reactors, he are at least 40 years old. and a familiar symbol could use the target bull's eye, apple is looking at setting up stores. target sells iphones and ipods but no mac boxes but it is not confirmed. and now over to dave? >>dave: there are two big debates on tap this weekend ahead of the new hampshire primary. so, can rick santorum keep at mitt romney's heels? and now michele bachmann is out, is rick santorum the overall tea
6:24 am
party favorite? weighing in is comic and radio personality. tony, good morning. >> how are you, my friend. good to see you. >>dave: tough to figure out who is the tea party guy. we have a poll from rasmussen that show as mixed bag, rick santorum seen ahead for the family but mitt romney and newt gingrich right there. so, who is, who best represents the tea party were beliefs? >>guest: that is still a conversation going on. since the tea party came into existence in 2009 we are so much more educated. this is a smarter electorate, and you saw in iowa's the caucuses 41 percent of people were not sure which way they were going to go and they are paying a lot of attention, digging this deep. so, listen, people like rick santorum and they think she a nice guy but this are issues with the record. but in iowa when he virtually got a win people are taking a
6:25 am
bigger look and saying is this the guy we are going with all the way? so i think that the tea party is going to take another look at newt gingrich and i believe when you look to south carolina where this game really gets decided, they will take another look at rick perry and if the family is willing to forgive, not forget, but forgive the debate performance of rick perry early he could have a hell of a day. >>dave: i don't if i would agree with that, but if mitt romney wins new hampshire, take south carolina, and he is in the lead in most polls there, and becomes the nominee, does the tea party, then, fail, if he is the nominee and will they truly support mitt romney? >>guest: well, first of all, take that in two parts. fail? absolutely not. the tea party owns the debate in america. it will be difficult to win without tea party support. and the tea party are the ones looking as the down ticket races and in the senate and the house of representatives cross the
6:26 am
country. the tea party does not campaign for mitt romney but them hold their nose and vote for a romney in states where they have other reasons to do so. you could have a reversal, in indiana they want lugar out and they will vote for murdoch but a romney nomination could have some stay home, saying, just not my guy. >>dave: you will not a huge town out to devote president obama. who are you taking? >>guest: i am taking anyone over the constitution trampler and chief the you have people who engage the constitution and respect the constitution or you have people who attack and want to destroy the constitution and are doing so each day. your choice. you choose. >>dave: thank you, tony forgetting up, tony katz. let us know on twitter: has the
6:27 am
tea party failed or will they succeed depending on the romney nomination. fiend me on twitter. tension at white house with the first lady clashing with someone over the presidency. emily's just starting out... and on a budget.

6:30 am
6:31 am
>> last night bide subsequent his wife went to see "the girl with the dragon tattoo," but he had to ask if that was the girl with the tattoo. >> how was it? >> good. pretty darn close to the book. a movie version. but it is pretty darn close. it is creepy. >>dave: a new book about the first lady is causing quite a stir in the white house. the obamas is a behind the scenes look at president and mrs. obama but it is how they are being portrayed that has people talking. >>alisyn: and like in washington, dc, with more. peter? >>peter: in september of 2010 an article suggested that the first lady told the french first lady that she thought that living in the white house was
6:32 am
hell. that story continued out not to be true and this book suggests as soon as then press secretary gibbs found out it wasn't true he fought back against the reports and the story went away. well, the new book, claims that gibbs did not respond the way the first laid would like and the next time the advisor and friend told him that at a meeting and we have the cleaned up free version of the response from that meeting and he says that is not right i have been killing myself on this, where is it coming from? it was coming from the first lady, through valerie and after that he stopped taking her at all seriously as an advisor and her viewpoint in advising the president is that she has to be up and the rest of the white house has to be down, so begins and jarrett did not get along because of tension of the first lady who did not get along with rahm emanuel, either, writing
6:33 am
that they had in bond, the relationship was distant and awkward from the beginning, and the white house says about all of this, in the book, the author last interviewed the obamas in 2009 and did not interview them for this book, the emotions, thoughts and private moments described in the book, seemingly ascribed to the president and first lady reflect little more than the author's own thoughts and the book causing all this commotion, comes out on tuesday "the obamas." >>alisyn: sounds juicy. it is hard to know how she is getting the information. >>dave: this are always leaks. >>clayton: and marco rubio has penned an open letter to president obama, not pulling any punches and the debt ceiling debate is automatic, as we know, the new upgrade to the debt ceiling was automatic, it was a
6:34 am
delay, until congress was back in session, but, that has not stopped the senator from saying he is not on board with it although it is an automatic trigger. >>alisyn: and from the letter he says it is a tragic reality but on your watch more and more people have come to believe that america is becoming a deadbeat nation headed toward a european-style debt crisis and america deserves leaders who stand front and center, level with the american people about our challenges and offer real solutions rather than asking for another debt ceiling increase. >>dave: he is the many that people talk about a vice presidential candidate but he denies any interest in that position and has said i will not be the guy to be on anyone's ticket but what he is saying not president would have shown leadership on this, on the debt issue and he said i like this
6:35 am
simpson-bowles plan, we might not be in this position we are in today saying it has been failed leadership the last couple of years. >>alisyn: saying the first three years of your presidency have been a profile in leadership failure and we need congress to make it routine to spend no more than we take in. could that work? spend less than they take in? i need to calculate that. >>clayton: members of congress and senators can vote against this but it doesn't matter, much, you can vote your disapproval of this trigger but it is still built in, because congress has agreed. >>alisyn: what a senator can do other than writing an angry letter is not much. and now the other news. other news. here is the top story, a man opens fire at a hospital in. killing two people and this happened last night at the
6:36 am
medical center and police say the gunman shot and killed his wife and mother-in-law and drove to the police department and turned him self in. a motive is not known, but the women were visiting a family member at the hospital and no one else was hurt. take a look at this surveillance video: police in seattle hope you can help lead them to a suspect who left a bomb at a chase bank. he reportedly entered with the suspicious package and left it by an a.t.m., and it was not this will three hours later a customer spotted it. fire experts were able to disarm the device, and it failed to ignite and anyone with information is being knowledged to call hole authorities. you can find that person: don't you hate it when you trying to rob a pharmacy and a state trooper happens to be there? this 27-year-old armed with a box cutter trying to steal prescription drugs from a c.v.s. but the officer was also there
6:37 am
buying a bottle of water. >> it was just instinct. it happened very fast. it certainly did catch me by surprise but i would say it went about as well as it could have gone. >> police officer chased the robber outside before subduing him, and it turns out the car that the robber drove to the foiled truck heist was also stolen. casey anthony has popped up in what is believed her second video diary in less than a week. and now a look. >> very excited. very exciting. >> very exciting. >> that was her back to brunette in a seven-second video clip and fox news has not confirmed the valid of that video but we know she released another clip on youtube, and did not messages her deceased daughter
6:38 am
in either of the clips. >> but don't know if she released them because the defense camp said they did not put it out there. >> when you are talking to a camera, what do you think will happen? >>clayton: you keep it on your own. >>dave: she is not getting millions for interviews so we should be happy. turning the page in the paterno era, bill o'brian is the new head coach. you may know him as the offensive coordinator for the new england patriots and will finish out the season before heading to happy valley. the 42 replacing, long time coach paterno, would was fired two months ago not of a math of a scandal involving defensive coordinator sandusky. and paterno has congratulated o'brian and likes their common brown university background. now the cotton bowl, arkansas taking on kansas state at cowboy
6:39 am
stadium, 80,000 fans and second quarter, joe adams, got a couple of blocks and this guy glides. just glides. 51 yards into the end zone and then hogs up before they even get a first down, third quarter, 19-9. the snap brings in the touchdown. boy, not happy there. and late in this game, kansas state made run at it but the second just dominated bowl games, more than two thirds over the last six years, eight of the last nine cotton bowls. and razorbacks win. >> rick?
6:40 am
rick: it has been so warm that a lot of people who ice official or snowmobile the ice is not thick enough so we hear of a lot of people in cars and such who have been falling through ice so it is important to stay off of the ice. these are the letted guidelines of how much ice you need to do different activists. around 3" before you can walk on ice. 4" is recommended for ice fishing and 5" for snowmobiling and 8" to 12" for a car: so this is very incredibly dangerous and you see these citizens happen. and this is how much snow is on the ground, 16 percent of the united states has snow including the rockies. with more today. and to the northern plains no snow in south dakota which is unheard of. much of minnesota does not have snow, little bit across new england, and, for the next few days nothing else will happen.
6:41 am
we will see some colder air by later in the coming week but maybe by wednesday we will see temperatures drop below the freezing mark but in the meantime, big story here about people falling through the ice because it is not thick enough. >>dave: in colorado they had a raise, across the lake and it was 50 degrees! >>alisyn: scary. >>clayton: great story in the "wall street journal" pointing out new services taking off with great success. wing woman and wing men services, so, basically, if you don't have the confidence to date by yourself, if you are socially awkward, would you hire a wing woman or a wing man to go to a bar and walk up and hit on people for you. >>alisyn: she say you could be lucky in love with a when map, and internet dating is falling
6:42 am
by the wayside people have not had. success as they hope so now they are hiring for $125 or $130 for a night you go with a wing man who knows how to do it. >>dave: like the movies "hitch," and "crazy stupid love." >> because i watch you picked one doesn't mean i know how to do it. >> ever see karate kid. >> so, without fail buy her a
6:43 am
drink. insist. >> do i talk about myself? >> never. always about her. >>dave: that movie is outstanding, he says never wear the new balance shoes. >>alisyn: agreed. that is worth $120. >>clayton: when are like packs of wolves, with three and four and if a guy is out it is difficult to infiltrate the pack, so you hire the when man and he knows what to do, he rolls over and he says you want me to take a picture of you guys, in, in, in like flint. >>alisyn: someone has been taking notes. >>dave: would you use the services? let us know. stay tuned. people with a machine.

>> and how will president obama get military votes for the election bid? we have veterans for congress. thank you for being here. in 2008 the president got 44 percent of the military vote. now that he has toured the big terrorism victories, yet, also, announced the budget cuts for the military how do you think it will play out. >> he will do worse with veterans and military folk. a up cough reasons. you look at the policy, the pentagon is looking to downgrade military pensions to 401(k)'s and the ft. hood shooting 13 american soldiers were massacred and the administration whitewashed that as a work-place shooting. so he is bad on policy, and the politics, in all the battleground states: he, north carolina, virginia, an iraq veteran running for congress. in congress, a veteran running for the u.s. senate and has been elected and that will play a
6:48 am
part. in north carolina, where fort bragg is, you have iraq veteran running to represent those folks. so, if president obama is down on the ground campaigning for the veterans against an actual iraq veteran or afghanistan veteran, the voters will be swayed by their where veteran more so than the president. >>alisyn: there are interesting polls suggesting that ron pull is -- ron paul is getting a large chunk of the military vote the least engaged in. ing what overseas conflict and wants to pull out of all wars. >>guest: a fraction of every group that are isolationist and grandfather state at 10 or 15 percent grandfather state to ron paul but the isolationist veteran is with ron paul and the other 85 percent of veterans are not and they understand the need for a strong military presence and support the other 85 percent. >>alisyn: thank you, we appreciate you coming in.

7:05 am
organized labor, at the governmental level, that helped my election campaign, says president obama, so we have haded 135,000 federal jobs: and then, of course, we have a lost help from the afl-cio so we will stack the national labor relations board with union stooges. that is wrong. we have to stop it and turn that around. >>clayton: and he was in south carolina and threw back to new hampshire and brought governor haley with him to new hampshire and the g.o.p. candidates yesterday, because of the job numbers, it is interesting to see how the g.o.p. field was responding to the jobs numbers. great numbers. so, how do you go failure. romney has built the campaign around this idea of the economy and will it resonate going forward, this longer term idea about the growth of the economy, that is what he has been hanging his hat on and rick santorum says these are great numbers. take a listen.
7:06 am
>> i'm glad it is doing better now. i am sure the president will want to take president for it. for any improvement. guess what? he doesn't deserve it because egg that has been done has hurt this economy's recovery, everything done by this president. >> i am gratified to see in spite of president obama's policies the job market is picking up, and there could be optimism that maybe republicans are beginning to take the white house and maybe that is spurring people to start taking risk. >>alisyn: it is complicated because you cannot say that the president is solely responsible for the bad economy. there is verbal or position gymnastics they from to figure out. but it is good news and they want to recognize it but do not want it to steal their thunder. >>clayton: and the 8 percent thing in the obama administration that let us pass the stimulus, $787 billion and it will not go before 8 percent but it is 8.5 percent.

7:17 am
understand firsthand not only what we face with an unsecured border in fighting illegal immigration i stand up for the rule of law and i see the economic problems facing our country are so serious because they literally compromise our strength as not just a free economy but you see now obama is looking to cut our military. because of the weakness of our economy. and that compromises the future, ten, 20, 40 years out from now, our standing, our ability to defend and project our foreign policy, we have always used the military and that is the wrong direction. we have so many people --. >>dave: do you take something from your law enforcement career and apply that to getting congress to break this gridlock? is there something applicable you can take to the house of representatives? >>guest: well, absolutely. we need to remember not just our oath, our commitment but get things done.
7:18 am
when someone calls 9-1-1 we have to spend. people expect action. right new we see leaders kicking the can down the street. nothing is getting done. i am used to making tough decisions. we need to tackle entitlements and get hands off the neck of our economy with higher taxes and regulation. we have to stop that. more stimulus will not create jobs for america. we need to get the private sector to invest the money they are hoarding because of the fear of the division of those who have and work or earn it versus those who occupy wall street and think they are entitled. in america you have to earn it. >>dave: that message is similar to the one we hear from romney, that is your guy. why? >>guest: well, not just he is inspire race am i cannot wait to unleash mitt romney against obama because they are so different. mitt romney is a patriot and he understands the essence of our free market and has something
7:19 am
that obama has never had: a job. and the fact we need a president who understands it is the private sector that will create the wealth, that strengthens our country. we have seen in my county with 21 percenten employment and the stimulus hasn't done anything but further compromise our country. $15 trillion in debt! 42 cents of every dollar we spend is borrowed. this is insanity. this president and this congress must be fired. >>dave: sounds like you have a platform but you do not have an opponent so that is good news. paul babeu thank you. still ahead, a mom facing possible jail time because her autistic son has been late to school. has the school gone too far?

7:32 am
now. juicy. all the previews and the details for us. tell us, peter. >>peter: not run up to the 2008 election when she relied her husband was probably going to become president and she was probably going to become the first lady this book says that she wanted to stay in chicago with her daughters after the inauguration and delay moving to the white house until at least the end of the year and she caved and went to walk it wasn't because she was eager to fulfill the obligations of being the first lady only because she wanted to keep the family together. the first lady also did not get along at all with her husband's former chief of staff, rahm emanuel. they had almost no bond. their relationship was distant and awkward from the beginning. she was skeptical of him when he was selected and he returned the favor. and he was uneasy about first ladies in general, based on clashes with hillary clinton in the 1990's that she tried to
7:33 am
fire him from the administration. and the first led used the president's add requires and long time family friend jarrett to criticize former press secretary robert gibbs over handling of a story that accused her of telling the current first lady that living in the white house was "hell," that story ended up being falls and gibbs fought it but after this, gibbs stopped taking jarrett at all seriously as an advisor to the president and her viewpoint in advising the viewpoint is she has to be up and the rest of the white house has to be down. the white house is saying about this book the author lacks interviews of the obamas and did not interview them for the book, and the emotions, thoughts and private moments described in the book, ascribed to the president and first lady, reflect little more than the author's own
7:34 am
thoughts. this book, by the author who work for "new york times" comes out on tuesday. >>alisyn: always interesting to hear about the white house intrigue the and now to the headlines. a man opens fire add a hospital in. killing two people, last night at the medical center. police say the gunman shot and kill the his wife and mother-in-law and drove to the police department and turned himself in. a motive is not known. the women were vesting a family member at the hospital and known else was hurt. >> he says he felt numb. new york city's beloved archbishop speaking out about the pope's decision to elevate him to card until. listen. >> cardinal, when i was a kid the word "cardinal," was associated with giant towering figures, and i just wanted to be a parish priest and to think now the pope is naming me a cardinal
7:35 am
... that's awesome. >>alisyn: he is a nice guy one of 22 archbishops in the entire world to be chosen for this honor, cardinal is the second highest ranked position in the catholic church, just under the pope, and himself, and baltimore archbishop is the only other american, and they will be appointed to the college of cardinals in a ceremony at st. peter's next month. i volunteer for that assignment. a california man goes out for a cup of coffee and ends up a hero. he sees what happens to be two men stealing beer at a store and he rushes from the aisle, tackling a robber, into the street, and the other robber beats up the clerk, but he goes to charge outside, the brave clerk takes him out, too. >> you recognize there is a throat someone and whatever kind of environment, flight or fight and i just fought.

7:38 am
warmer with vegetation growing and cattails and the ice will be not is strong. all the cold air is to the north. it is not across parts of the continental united states but toward alaska and northern canada. across the continental united states it is not that cold and we will see some of the cold air move into the foreign plains bit time we get to monday or tuesday but we will see how long that lasts. and across the northeast, another mild day and 56 in new york, and 62 in washington, dc, and in the southeast a few showers and temperatures mild and the northern plains another day of temperatures well above the average and across the west, snow toward utah and colorado. deaf? >> folks, what is your new year's resolution? we have trainer up ahead and if

of people thought, a moving speech about seeing, his father or grandfather, laid in the casket with hands from having worked in the coal mine, and trying to paint himself differently from mitt romney, a privileged individual. but, does he have the time in new hampshire to get on the airwaves, to tell all of the people of new hampshire she a blue color -- collar go. >>guest: the rick santorum said they could not get on the air because the air time was bought, and it is a barrage of non-step tv ads. but, rick santorum is strong in another comparison, i gave a speech last might and rick santorum and newt gingrich were there and he said, you know, in 1988 all the pundits said vote for the moderate because he can win, george h.w. bush but new hampshire said no we will go with the real conservative, reagan, and he urged them to do the same thing and that is an
7:48 am
interesting message because there are a lot of people in the tea party and small government end of the spectrum who are not comfortable with mitt romney and don't think he shares their fundamental approach and rick santorum has his own political issues, which they don't grew but mitt romney has been dogged. and he says vote for the guy you like who is a winner. >>dave: we got e-mails saying ron paul is like the original tea party guy. so, speaking to making your point here about voting for the true conservative, is that how new hampshire voters will turn out on tuesday for ron paul? >>guest: well, ron paul polls in second place, and the polls are all over the place because of the rick santorum bump in iowa and some think he is in fourth and some thing he is coming up on ron paul. paul's support is fixed. people will not go from, i was backing rick santorum to i will back ron paul so quickly, here is what needs to happen to keep
7:49 am
going forward. rick santorum needs to outpeople, he will never win, but if he can come in second and approach 20 percent that is good and he needs mitt romney to underperform, a poll yesterday had mitt romney at 44 percent and if he gets 34 or 33 percent or 32 percent rick santorum can say he is not the "lock," you thought. >> and huntsman is stake his entire campaign on new hampshire and drawing a line in the sand and the boston globe gave him an endorsement this week, does that do anything for huntsman to get him a bump or do anything for mitt romney who is saying you can have that endorsement. >>guest: people ask, why isn't huntsman doing better. when you are a candidate who thinks getting endorsed by the boston globe is a good thing, you are so clueless it is no surprise you are not doing better. you do not want to be endorsed by the boston globe democrat in a republican party in new
7:50 am
hampshire. they hate massachusetts, and they hate massachusetts liberals more. the theory is the globe wanted to hurt mitt romney, and they really wanted for hurt mitt romney they would have endorsed mitt romney. that would be the ultimate text blow. >> coming up we have a big lineup for the next two hours, governor hurricane bee -- governor huckabee will be here and newt gingrich and karl rove all life on "fox & friends" and if that is not enough, she keeps celebrities in shape and here with us

set his sights on romney? >>alisyn: and we can ask him that question when he is on, in an hour. and a mark how confident mitt romney is feeling in new hampshire, that he left new hampshire, actually, year, and went to south carolina, the next big battleground state. here he is talking about president obama in south carolina yesterday. >> i don't think this president understands how the economy works and subscribes to crony california -- crony capitalism, a government that pays back favors to those who took care of them. that says, well, organized labor helped me, so we have added 135,000 federal jobs. under his administration. and we have a lot of help from the afl-cio so we stack the national labor relations board with union stooges to make sure they give states that are

8:17 am
now, interest rates are so low you expect banks to be, what is the principle loan that a lot of the banks are making? mortgages. and i am worried about what happens if the mortgage market goes south again, you could have a lot of foreclosures and of course that means a lot of banks are at risk. >> what we asked is about the holiday hiring spurt, critics are saying the new jobs numbers are great but it reflects all of the companies and retail space and hiring couriers and people to come in and wrap gifts. is that what the numbers are or is this good news? >>guest: really go news, that was probably president obama best employment rate in three years. it took a while. the economy is picking up. there is no question. we are going to get the g.d.p. numbers for the fourth quarter next week or two. i am thinking 3.5 percent to 4 percent growth, an improvement in the first three years in

office. so, the economy is picking up, and the job gains everyone not just in the service sector, we had job gains across the board. even in the construction industry there was job pickup and we have not had construction jobs in a long time. >> all of this, front page stories in the "wall street journal" about the issues withup. how does the united states insulate itself against a crashing euro and is there anything that the obama administration can do, whether banks in the united states or anything, to try to help that, all the gains we are getting are they offset by what happens in europe? >>guest: to some extent they will. it is a great question because the economy in the united states is starting to pick up steam but europe is submerging and europe is flat lining, at best, in 2012, so that will create head winds in terms of our ability to grow the economy rapidly, but, i do think the biggest factor for
8:19 am
2012 in terms of growth and the willingness of businesses to hire new workers, the number one issue is that big tax bomb that will go off in january of 2013, dividend taxes, and the payroll tax, when i talk to employers that is their big fear. what are you facing in 11 months because of the big tax big starting if january. >> a lost them are saying we will not hire until we find out what this looks like. >>guest: that is why everything you have been talking about about the election is not politics, it really has a very big impact on how the economy will be doing over the next ten months because if investors think we will have obama re-elected and a huge tax increase in 2013 there is a big reluctant to invest ahead of that tax bomb. >>clayton: steve, thank you

>> a young widow and her baby trapped in their home on new year's as two intruders tried to break in. she was on the phone with 9-1-1 as it unfolded. >>alisyn: she waited for a man to come inside and she shot and killed him. now, the other man, the alleged accomplice is charged with first-degree murder. but a judge let him out on bail! the host of "justice," is here. judge, why would a judge let this other accomplice out on bail when we know he knows where the victim lives and he could come back to retaliate? >>guest: the purpose of bail is to assure the defendant is going to return to court. this is first-degree murder based on felony murder and
8:25 am
surprising a judge would bail anyone in a situation like this. he is twine years old, and we did not know if he has a record but the crime itself is certainly enough to force a judge to say, this guy has a reason to disappear and maybe we should not bail him. but aside from all of that, the truth is, he is charged with felony murder, he did not shoot the gun, he didn't know that someone was going to be killed and it is an age old concept that says if you did not do the killing and you did not plan on killing, if you are committing a burglary or a robbery and someone dies, you are responsible. first-degree murder. period. end story. so a guy, first-degree murder although his co-defendant, or accomplice was killed, and the judge lets him out on bail it really is shocking that a judge would do that. >>alisyn: the mom had a tragic story, only 18, she now is a single mom after her husband died on christmas day, she was on "studio b" with shephard smith and talks about this

second accomplice: >>guest: he fell over the couple and his accomplice when he her the gunshots called 9-1-1 and said his friend was shot and he went to his parents house and they took him to the police station. >> the accomplice called 9-1-1 and reported it, and he calls his parents and they drove him to the legislation station and that gave the judge leniency. >>guest: those mitigating factors in temperatures of the judge saying this guy is a good bail risk. he went to jail, he went to the police himself, and, so, maybe that is the reason. but make no mistake this guy is facing first-degree murder. it doesn't matter if he intended or if the victim shot his buddy, and, forget the first-degree murder he is involved in a robbery and a break in of a widow with a baby a week after her husband died of cancer!
8:27 am
the lowest of the low. they are dirt bags. end story. >>alisyn: in your expense, since the accomplice did not have the gun or shot anybody, and he is the person that call cops will he be con 60s of first-degree murder? >>guest: the prisons are in this country are lined with individuals who committed felony murder who had no intent to kill but were involved not underlying felonies that most states, 48 of them, allow for the imposition of intentional murder, an unusual common law concept. we don't care your intend, someone dies during the course of a serious felony and you will pay the price. >>alisyn: do we know what coined of sentence? >>guest: life sentence as everyone who is convicts of felony murder in this country: >>alisyn: fascinating case, thank you for explaining it to you. >>alisyn: not your typical bus ride a police chase leaded to

8:42 am
debt ceiling increase as a senator and became for it as president. and he is showing the senate is not going to just continue to go along with raiding the debt ceilings. last week something significant happened, it did not get a lost attention, for the first time in our history our debt exceeded the annual g.d.p. of the country. that means at is 100.3 percent we owe more money than the we economy combines. that is a staggering and shocking turning point. what the senator is saying, a calling out, mr. president we will not continue to borrow the money and put future generations at risk. >>clayton: got to watch huckabee tonight. >>governor huckabee: tonight we have rick santorum and a report card on has president obama been on vacation too much, and the wonderful musical group the bellamy brothers, and worth

9:05 am
last week we were talking about your iowa state chair saying we want newt gingrich to roll up his sleeves and roll up the french cuffs and go after mitt romney, and go negative. you said you wouldn't go negative and what's going on. >> first of all, i don't have french cuffs, i just have to roll up my sleeves. i think so we're drawing a sharp contrast. i'm a reagan conservative, he's a massachusetts moderate. i oppose tax increases in my careers and helped to pass several major tax cuts. i'm jnl right to life and romney care included tax abortions and planned parenthood an official roll in romney care and there are gaps where we stand. in that sense i'm willing to talk about the contrast between governor romney's position and my position, but i'm not going to run negative ads, i'm not going to have the vicious and i think in many cases dishonest ads 'cause i
9:06 am
think it's wrong. i think it's wrong for america, i think it's the wrong way for us to have a political campaign. >> dave: you've said on numerous instances you want to run a campaign worthy of your grandchildren and you criticize mitt romney by the ads run by his super pac and now these pro gingrich pac, winning our future, this is from rick tyler of winning our future, says we're going to release a short 27 minute film about mitt romney's time at bain capital he says is not a pretty story, more ruthless than wall street. is that worthy of your grandchildren and how is that different from what mitt romney did in iowa. >> depends, again, i've not looked at it and haven't seen it, i'm look at it if it comes out. if it's accurate, then it's accurate. look, i have no problem when people take a shot and my record based on my record. i have a shot when they run an ad that "the washington post" gives four pinochios, can you
9:07 am
imagine an image of somebody and each one the nose is bigger and bigger. and nothing factually honest in it. that's the difference. i've had a long career, people had specific votes and things that don't make sense, that's fine. as long as they're factually correct. >> clayton: you've been painting yourself as the bold reagan republican and you did it here again with newt-- excuse me with mitt romney painting him as a massachusetts moderate. but, is it too late to be drawing these distinctions in the campaign? some arguing you should have been doing this well long ago and coming out and this morning, the independent tea party up there in new hampshire has come out and endorsed mitt romney and mitt romney put this up on his website, a tea party group doesn't really seem to be backing moderates too often. what do you say to that? >> i would say that this is his third best fate after utah and massachusetts out of the various tea party groups in the country i'm sure he can find one. we've had tea party group
9:08 am
after tea party group endorse me. we've had very strong support across the country and andrew hemmingway running our campaign here is a tea party leader. speaker o'brien of the house, the leader of the largest state legislative body in the united states endorsed me, he's from the tea party movement so i would say overwhelmingly tea partiers don't find mitt romney's tax increase policies or his positions that favored tax paid abortion or, for example, his tax on-- he passed a tax which quadrupled the cost of owning a gun in massachusetts. i think those kind of things don't go over well with tea partiers. >> alisyn: mr. speaker, we want to talk to you about the new ad we understand you'll be putting out in south carolina about mitt romney's position on abortion. in the ad, we understand that you'll say that the massachusetts health care plan that he passed provided for taxpayer funded abortions. now, romney has responded and said that's actually a supreme court decision and that he, as governor, had no power to
9:09 am
overturn that decision. so, is your ad honest? >> okay. well, it's honest to say romney care has state paid abortions and he, by making it all of the state eligible, he extends the number of abortions dramatically in massachusetts. that's absolutely accurate. the effect of romney care was to increase the number of people who could get tax paid abortions dramatically and in addition, he signed a bill that includes planned parenthood as an official part of romney care, planned parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the kupt and he didn't put any right to life in romney care and it's a little too much that this wasn't expansion of abortion under government because romney care expands the power of planned parenthood and the number of abortions paid by the tea party and those are factually accurate and unlike the governor, i'm happy to defend any ad we put up and explain why that's factually correct.

>> the governor doing well 0 new hampshire and moves us on to south carolina and you know how important it is, when you look the a the numbers, it looks likes yourself, rick santorum and if you add the three of you up, you have more vote than mitt romney. isn't your problem more rec santorum than mitt romney in the state of south carolina. how do you define yourself from rick santorum from a policy standpoint? >> rick and i are good friends, but the fact is, i've been actively a reagan republican since i first met with governor reagan in '74. i worked with the reagan campaign in '79 and '80 and helped to jack kemp and others and worked with president reagan and we developed a contract of america, i became speaker of the house. rick's an important part of all that, i don't deny that and i don't say bad things about rick santorum, if you're
9:11 am
looking for somebody who help design national campaigns that were big wins and defeated the left and helped to run the government directly with negotiating with the president, there's no comparison about our total experience background and i think that's, that's a fair comparison. but my primary focus is governor romney for a very practical reason. he has enormous amount of money and he has numerous friends he and their super pac are burning down the nomination and tearing down everybody else. >> dave: would you support him in the nomination. >> sure i'll support him over president obama. but the reagan republican who is a conservative and a massachusetts moderate and i think it's very hard for a massachusetts moderate to beat barack obama. >> clayton: all right, mr. speaker. sticking around because we want to talk about the debate tonight. can the debate put him back in the top field? certainly shined in a lot of the debates and we'll talk

[laughter] >> will take off the gloves and go off shortcomings in a more forceful way than in the past? >> look if i want to describe clearly the difference between a reagan conservative or massachusetts moderate or describe the fact and kept my word and voted against tax increases and voted for tax cut. governor romney campaigned and raised 730 million in taxesment i don't know that that's negative. those are factually accurate statements. we're all adults and can have a straight forward conversation. >> dave: his camp will tell you they lowered taxes 19 times in massachusetts. i lived there during that period, so, taxes can be fudged, depending on your perspective on this. but the economy on the other hand, the numbers look all positive.
9:18 am
8.5% unemployment. created 200,000 private sector jobs. is this economy moving in the right direction? what are the political implications there? >> well, first of all, we hope for the american people that it is moving in the right direction. there are millions of people who are hurting very badly. there are millions who are unemployed. there are millions of small businesses that are clinging to existence by a narrow margins and millions more that houses are worth less than the mortgage that they owe and all hope that it recovers. we created 200,000 jobs last month by comparison, in august of 1983. and ronald reagan created a million 300,000 new jobs, six times as many. the things we have to worry about if there's any significant economic shock, euro zone collapses, something bad happens in the least, you can imagine the economy diving again because this is not a very strong recovery. i think we have to worry about how do we accelerate and improve this recovery? >> before we let you go. one interesting thing came out
9:19 am
in one of the debates. who would you pick for your vice-presidential nominee. and rick santorum said you. and that very has been raised on the campaign trail recently and you have respect him hem and he has a great deal of respect for him. and if rick santorum a nominated and asked you to be vp what would you say. >> i frankly don't worry about it much. i think right now my goal is it to continue getting back on the right track as a candidate as we've done twice before in this cycle and looking forward very much to the debate tonight and tomorrow and to the vote on tuesday and then to south carolina. >> dave: do you have to make it a two man race between you and romney? >> oh, sooner or later, sure. you have to make sure that people understand clearly that as a massachusetts moderate he's not-- he's going to have a very, very hard time debating obama and make sure they understand his record and eventually, if
9:20 am
you look at the vote in iowa, consistently by substantial majority republicans say that he's not somebody they want to have as their nominee. so, eventually the field will come down to one-on-one and when it does, i think that the, that in fact, you'll find it very hard to get a majority. >> all right, mr. speaker, thanks so much for being here, we'll be watching you tonight and dissecting it all for our viewers tomorrow morning and 6 a.m. and come back soon. >> good luck tonight, mr. speaker. >> look forward to it. >> eencourage, watch the nfl football game and come back for analysis. >> alisyn: leave it to us, and we'll tell you about it tomorrow morning. >> clayton: you've heard from the newt gingrich and karl rove will come back with his reaction to the interview, back and forth. >> alisyn: and patrick swayze's wife opens up and a story of the marriage to the iconic actor. look how cute. ♪ ♪ i've had the time of my life

9:25 am
how did patrick respond when he learned that's what he was suffering from? >> well, he, he knew a little bit about the disease, i didn't. and the first day he was diagnosed, excuse me, frog in my throat. after all the doctors and nurses had left the room for the day, he turned to me and he said i'm a dead man. the fact of the matter is is that this statistics are so dismal that 80% of those diagnosed within -- die within the first three to six months after diagnosis. >> and yet, patrick lived longer than that, with the disease. he lived bravely and because he was such a big star he had to live in the public eye. that couldn't have been easy. >> no, no, it wasn't. and it's a testament to his incredible courage and his warrior spirit and how he battled this disease, and patrick more than is the first

9:32 am
♪ >> all right. welcome back to "fox & friends" on this saturday morning. that flowering music can only mean one thing. >> dave: "fox & friends." >> clayton: "fox & friends" time and karl rove, senior advisor, nice to see you. >> happy new year, when we were last together?
9:33 am
i think it was 2011, a long time ago. >> alisyn: you've been avoiding us, karl. >> it was a year ago. >> clayton: he missed us, you can see the tear in his eye. we've got a lot to talk about with this weekend being an important political weekend and earlier on the show we had speaker gingrich responding to your criticism of him and saying he needs to focus what got him elevated in the polls and his debates. take a listen to his response. >> what he said, you know, you start with 32, 33% and then 45% ads run in iowa are negative about me. and 45% of all the ads run attack me and it's pretty hard to explain the race some other way. i will be tonight who i've been. my debate approach is very straight forward. i'd rather talk with the american people and i try to talk about the things that matter to the american people and i try to do it in a way that's positive and that they can feel that they're having a genuine adult conversation, they're not watching cheap
9:34 am
game playing by some politician who's been coached by clever consultants. >> clayton: what's your response to that, karl? >> look, i saw the whole interview and i thought he was getting back to where he needed to be. you know, look, when i was responding to it gingrich saying romney is a liar. if he doesn't get 30%, more than 30% of the vote in new hampshire he ought to get out of the race. 75% of the people voted against him in iowa. look, that's not-- that's what pundits say not presidents and frankly, it's simply not true. you know, nobody thinks the first word that springs to their mind when you say liar is mitt romney. and you don't look-- what happens if newt gingrich gets less than 30% in new hampshire should he pull out. 70% of the people in iowa voted for somebody than romney. 90% voted for somebody other than gingrich. does any of that mean they shouldn't go on, no.
9:35 am
and he needs to get back to big vision, and he'll be contrasted with romney, but if he talks about my record versus his record. that's fair politics and he will advance himself. there's one key thing though he needs to keep in mind. south carolina. over the last month, romney has risen 17 points to 37%, santorum has risen 15 points to 19%, newt gingrich has dropped 25 points, paul has risen 6, rick perry dropped 3. that 25 point drop did know the come from massive television ads being run against him. if came from people in south carolina observing the national contest, watching the debates, watching the news, turning in fox and examining the candidates and talking among themselves and they didn't like the newt gingrich that they saw. >> dave: and it came from rick santorum. i asked him, don't you need to distinguish yourself from rick santorum from a policy and experience standpoint? here is what he told us.
9:36 am
>> my primary focus is governor romney for a very practical reason. he has an enormous amount of money, and he and his millionaire friends through the super pac are going to try to burden down the nomination by tearing down everybody else. in south carolina, it's going to be a reagan republican who is a conservative and a massachusetts moderate and i think it's very hard for a massachusetts moderate to beat barack obama. >> dave: a massachusetts moderate thing probably won't help in new hampshire, but in south carolina, as we move on, maybe. does he need to distinguish himself from rick santorum. >> one is the first half of the answer was the bad newt. the second half was the good newt. the bad newt i've got to take on romney and millionaire friends. well, who do you think newt is counting on to fund his super pac? his millionaire friends. please, don't go that way. it's better not to have said the first two-thirds and said
9:37 am
the last third which is to say i need to contrast my record and his and look, it's fine if he says i'm the reagan conservative and romney is the massachusetts moderate. that's fair politics, but the first part of that is the old, the bad newt, the good newt was the second, the last third. one other thing, let's not think of south carolina as sort of, oh, this is the south. therefore everybody is typically conservative, baptist going to church, strong conservative. south carolina is three states in one. you have the up country, greenberg, spartansburg, social conservative. midlands which is strong economic conservative and then you have the low country from myrtle beach to hilton head, charleston in between with a lot of retirees, many from places like pennsylvania and michigan and new jersey and illinois, where there really are sort of moderate republicans. and so, south carolina is not like, you know, alabama or mississippi. and maybe far south, deep
9:38 am
south, but it's got a lot of retirees there who have a distinctly different view of politics and there's a reason why in 24 conservative state mitt romney is 37 and gingrich 18 after just a month ago he was at 20 and he was at 43. >> alisyn: fascinating numbers on your white board there. let's talk about the economy. president obama got some good news yesterday, the unemployment rate dropped down to 8.5. how are the republicans supposed to run against good news? >> first of all, don't run against good news. it's okay news, it wasn't great news. remember, we are 8 1/2% unemployment. when the president told us if we passed the stimulus plan we would be near 6% unemployment today. we have 13 million people out of work today and worse than that. this month we had more jobs, but fewer workers, and 50,000 people dropped out of the work force. if we're going to get to 8% unemployment by election day,
9:39 am
we're going to have to be creating 262,000 jobs a month and not 200,000 jobs. to get back to where we were when the president took office, we have to have 1.4 million net new jobs created to get to where we were before the recession began. 5.8 million jobs created. you know, there was virtually no change in the amount of time that people were unemployed in the latest one, about 40 weeks that people were on. >> an unemployed. and these are okay numbers, but they're anemic and they're certainly not what the president promised us when we passed the stimulus bill, 862 million of pork spending and left us with 13 million americans out of work. there's incidentally, an excellent-- if people want to track this, hamilton policies studies, excuse me, strategies, has a nice little sheet you can get going to the website that tracks the recovery and the picture it paints is, by matt mcdonald is not one of a
9:40 am
robust, this does not match any post world war ii recove recovery. >> alisyn: how many props do you have there, karl. >> clayton: some guys get up and read the sports page with a cup of coffee. karl will digest the numbers for breakfast, it's unbelievable. >> alisyn: thank you, karl, great to see you. >> we love you. >> i've made a new years resolution and start the year and mine is to protect gretchen against the two of you guys. >> alisyn: or alisyn. >> or remember her name. >> karl, i accept your offer of protection. >> i'm so sorry. >> clayton: he needs a wingman, more on that story. >> alisyn: or a wing woman. karl we'd appreciate it if you come back more often, too long since we've seen you. >> like three weeks, yeah, come on, please. i had the holiday. give me a break. >> clayton: we'll have your people talk to our people. karl, happy new year and great to see you.
9:41 am
>> alisyn: great to see you, mike huckabee. >> wow. [laughter] >> let's check with skippy for the weather. >> make it easy for him to keep his new years resolution, protect gretchen from you guys. nice work, karl. take a look at the map. and it's an important story we've been hearing people falling through ice i go this it's thick stuff. this is the recommended guidelines how thick ice needs to be in partake in activity. walking or ice skating or hockey or ice fishing or driving your car across the lakes. not this year, it's way too warm. take a look forward. snow across the plains. major deficits and ties into how cold it is and there you go. way below averages and no signs of big storms, but might see colder temps move in and later on this week, we'll try to fight and get cold air in here and feel like winter.
9:42 am
and back to you inside. >> thank you, u-reggie. gretchen is going to have much more coming up on the show because on the attack we've told you newt gingrich has launched ads against front runner mitt romney. is it enough to help his campaign? pollster frank luntz is going to share his thoughts. he watches the dials. this is fascinating. [ male a] how'd you learn to do that? when did you start that project? every new year comes with a few stories waiting to be built. it's when our brand-new to-do lists become "you did that yourself?" so when we can save more on the projects that let us build, make, and even store more, well, that just makes the stories even better. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. make room for savings with these sterilite totes for a new lower price of just $5.88.
9:43 am
make room for savings with these sterilite totes living with the pain of moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis... could mean living with joint damage. help stop the damage before it stops you with humira. for many adults with moderate to severe ra, humira's proven to help relieve pain and stop joint damage. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events can occur, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. ask your rheumatologist how you can defend against and help stop further joint damage with humira.
9:44 am
9:45 am
>> time for head lines. if you think fudging your tax returns a little is no big deal. take a think again. new statistics shows that the fuzzy math added up to 450 billion dollars in unpaid taxes in 2006 alone. now, that was just my tax return. double what the federal deficit was last year and are you romantically challenged? how you can hire somebody to help you land a date. kind of like the movie "hitched". >> do you think you and i could get together and kind of go over things, financial things? things? >> great. let me give you my number. >> classic. believe it or not, there are several services that will
9:46 am
provide you with your very own hitch or wing man. one is the professional wing man charges around $125 for a night of help out on the town and don't worry, ladies, there are also sites for wing welcome. clayton is very interested in the story. you'll hear more in the after the show show. >> clayton: a lot of requests not only from our viewers, but guests for being the wing woman. the g.o.p. candidate is ramping up attacks on rival mitt romney. will issen to the latest ad. >> romney's economic plan timid, virtually identical and timid won't create jobs and timid won't defeat barack obama. newt gingrich reformed welfare, rebuildings jobs and rebuilding the america we love with bold leadership. >> clayton: is this aggressive ad enough or wait too long to
9:47 am
roll it out. joining us pollster and contributor frank luntz to break it down. did he wait too long or aggressive enough? >> everyone keeps talking about the negativity and the aggressiveness and i think that's the wrong tone. the question is, do you draw proper contrast and it's interesting that the grip ad uses the word timid. i've not heard that in politics, i'm going to test that in a show for fox, 9 p.m. talking to new hampshire voters, what works and doesn't. aen we'll have speaker gingrich on that show tomorrow night at nine o'clock. clearly, bold beats timid in this election environment. and it ends with 20 seconds of positives to go along with the 0 seconds of negative. in the end, the balance, i say it's an effective ads. >> and in your book, i hope i'm getting the title write. you're talking about the word timid and does it resonate with what i hear when i think of that word and what you'll
9:48 am
be testing tomorrow night? >> that's exactly it. and timid is another word for weak and bold is another word for aggressive. and republicans are looking for something very tough, in fact, they're looking for a candidate against barack obama who is going to take it to him in the election and so, again, on balance, i think it's an effective ad. >> clayton: tonight at the debates, you're going to be watching that closely to see how the candidates handle themselves tonight. the question, do you think that mitt romney will be a pinata tonight. what do the other candidates have to do? what does newt gingrich have to do tonight against the bee-- behemoth. romney has gotten better and better over time and learned how to dodge the slings and arrows and for romney, focus only on barack obama. and newt gingrich has to draw a contrast without negative. the danger for gingrich if he steps over the line it seems
9:49 am
to deliver a personal attacks. his sound bites and taxes, wasteful washington spending on the washington culture the best, they're applause lines and basically got to deliver an applause line every time he has a chance to talk. >> clayton: we have woer candidates still in the race. rick perry looking to save his campaign essentially before south carolina, and you also have of course, rick santorum, ron paul. what do those candidates need to do tonight to be effective? >> well, ron paul is the one that no one seems to talk about, yet he's at 20% in the latest new hampshire polls and moving up across the country and in single digits until about six weeks ago and now in double digits in some states clearly in second place, for him. when he talks about economic policy he's winning. when he talks about foreign defense policy he's not. why? because republicans don't agree with where ron paul stands on defense. on the military, on his foreign policy positions which are kind of isolationist, but they do agree with him on economic policy and his
9:50 am
opposition to wasteful washington spending. so if i'm advising ron paul. stay on the economic issues, avoid defense and foreign policy. >> there's frank luntz, pollster and fox news contributor and knows campaigns well and lookling for analysis post debate and tomorrow near on the fox news network. thanks, frank. >> thank you. >> clayton: coming up next nicky fitness joins us live with ways to whip yourself in shape. you won't want to miss the five fitness trends. there she is. work it. ♪ i like to move it, move it ♪ ♪ i like to move it move it, we like to move it ♪ ouncer ] ife looking for a pickup truck, check out the miles per gallon. the length of the power train warranty. and the horsepower. only ram delivers this kind of muscle.

9:55 am
thing we'll see in 201, the niche targeting for different interests. >> michelle obama is big on kids working out and this is for dvd at home for using pomponsen instead of weights and seniors, more classes for seniors in the middle of the day. things we can use light weights to fight osteoporosis, baby boomers and summa classes in the middle of the day and sometimes get to the gym and work out. >> you can target a marathon, a 5 k or a tough mudder. >> and people who have done the marathon on 5 k want to get dirty and mudders. i know lots of clients i've had that have competed in the tough mudders. >> which is what? >> jumple over, cross through mud and climbing over hay stacks and things like that and you get really dirty and the funny thing is, they have a class so you can. >> no. >> get your dirt on and your
