>> good morning everyone, it's sunday, january 15th, i'm alisyn camerota and start with a fox news alert. it's a miracle at sea. another survivor located after that cruiseship overturned with thousands of passengers on board. why the captain of that ship is now in deep trouble. we have details of all of this straight ahead. >> and governor romney ran, saying he created 100,000 jobs in the private sector. >> mr. speaker, we've said we will not allow comment on the other-- >> this is the question. >> and let me say this differently. >> okay. >> i believe that it's fair to ask the records-- >> well, probably not the reception newt gingrich was hoping for.
6:01 am
why the former speaker not booed at a forum with south carolina's undecided voters. the back story coming up. >> clayton: all right. and big brother joining the battle of the bulge. some parents are outraged. schools now spying on their kids for being too fat. "fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ >> and how are they doing this morning. >> dave: i've been better, ali for thank for asking. >> clayton: dave and i have both been better. >> dave: it's a beating. >> clayton: i notice you're not wearing your denver cuff links. >> dave: the orange tie put away for next year it was not a tebowesque evening on the briggs house old. >> clayton: on the cover, tom brady, "remember me", and dave
6:02 am
and i stayed up late and the coffee is flowing. alisyn kick it off. >> dave: we have. >> alisyn: we have to get to the breaking news. horrible night ma i remember could be described as out of the "titanic." thousands of passengers on board a costa concorda cruise are left in sheer panic, it hit the sand bank or rocks, off the coast of italy. >> and she was with her mom on the ship celebrating her birthday. rescued by life boat. >> she joins us nonthe phone from italy and thank you for being with us this morning. if you could, just describe for us what you saw, what the scene was like, the moment you realized things were not right aboard this cruiseship. >> good morning, pretty much me and my mom left dinner and explore the ship we were only
6:03 am
on there for about three hours. we were walking down to just look for something, my mom actually just, we were looking for a bar, nightclub, and there was stuff lit up. nothing on the ship that's in english. there was something lit up and it was cathedral and she went in there and said a prayer and literally walked out of there and the ship turned. almost like it turned on a 70 degree angle like you were going around, like the ship was turning in a circle, it wouldn't, it wouldn't turn back, and everything was falling, we were try to just get down the hallway, because the hallway was on an incline. and just get to a crew member, but none of the crew members spoke english so we couldn't figure out anything. there's the big problem with it, there's nothing labeled on the floors and elevators, it doesn't say what's on that floor, there's no emergency
6:04 am
exit lighting, nothing on the floor that lights up. the lights went out and it was a blackout. >> clayton: besides the lack of english written on the ship. there seemed to be from the reports we've been reading and chae chaerg-- reading about, the confusion among the crew members. >> they had no information, and kept asking where are the life boats, where are life boats. >> don't need life boats, go back to your room. i'm not going back to my room. so we figured the life boats were on the fourth floor and outside people were already getting life jacts on. we didn't have a drill. like i've been on cruise ships before with royal caribbean and carnival. you have a drill the first hour you're there. know exactly where you're going to and where your life boat is. when we got into the room and looked at itinerary. 5 p.m., very much yesterday, so the day after. that was our drill.
6:05 am
i mean, i joke with my mom, what happens with my mom if something happens today. we don't know where to go. >> alisyn: that's what unfolded. what happened when you got to the life boats, panic stricken and chaos there. >> we got to the life boat, there's no one that's a leader. in royal caribbean, they will have a leader. and they'll skim you off your card. they didn't know who was off, who was on. we stood out there for an hour and a half on that ship, while it kept getting lower and lower, and no one said anything to us. there was a couple announcements that said there's a technical difficulty, sorry technical difficulties and it was all in different languages, so, we're trying to figure it out and found a woman who worked there who was a dancer from england. the only one who was helpful. we just stayed at a life boat.
6:06 am
when the alarm sounded and there was someone who actually said we're speaking on behalf of the captain, i don't know if that went the captain wasn't there, i don't know if the captain just didn't-- >> well, we know, melissa, the captain is facing criminal charges and one charge is in fact abandoning his ship. what has happened since you got to land. i'm told another chaotic scene, people without passports and credit cards and without phones and no one helping them in the terrible situation now at that they're on land. what's happening now and where do you go from here? >> i'm leaving on a flight in a couple hours, but i mean, there is no one, when we got to land, physically off the ship, first of all, our life boat wouldn't open and take my hand and run to another life boat we got on and found other americans, we got off the boat on to land which was an island and no one can tell us what island we're on or where we were. there was no one who made an announcement that said, stood
6:07 am
on top a car, there's thousands of people and i videotaped the whole thing, not nothing where to go, what to do, and people are screaming for their family members names and standing on cars and just trying to get a hold of anyone, and there's no direction, there was a priest who opened up a church for us, in the town, the town people we helpful and throwing blankets out, it was freezing, we stayed in the church that night. that was the 9:45, when the ship kind of tilted and an hour and a half later we weren't off the boat until about 11:30. one o'clock in the morning i looked outside and there was still people upon the front of the ship of the the ship at this point in time was like three quarters of the way already sunk, and. >> wow. >> there was people, five lights i counted inside flashlights they were making signals, and there was three blinking lights in the water.
6:08 am
i mean, it took them a while. there was not even a helicopter there or a coast card until about two o'clock in the morning. >> gosh. >> alisyn: melissa, how are you and your mom doing now. >> oh, i mean, we're, everyone's a bit shaken up, but we have our lives, we're okay, we're coming home, but eem, there's just, a lot of people, especially i feel bad for the crew members because they were sent back on to the ship to go find people they don't know who were on or or and they were hurt. >> dave: they're searching for the missing. >> there's some-- >> well, melissa, thanks so much for giving us your dramatic experience. >> dave: right, if you would, melissa, come see us when you come back, we'd like to see that video you shot and talk to you again once you're back here, right us here near connecticut and hear about this again. >> alisyn: safe travels homes, melissa. >> thank you. >> alisyn: that's a, nightmare. >> clayton: and the search
6:09 am
continues this morning, folks they can't account, you can hear the disorganize, and account for who is on the ship, 0 of the ship and missing, you can imagine though this rare island, a small island 4200 people descend on it and must be chaos. >> dave: to mess up one element of this is a major mistakes. every single thing in this process was botched by this cruise line. what a disaster for them. lawsuits will soon file. >> alisyn: ap makes you wonder. >> dave: unbelievable. >> alisyn: back at home, let's talk about what's going on in south carolina and of course, governor huckabee held a big candidates forum last night in south carolina and most of the candidates, five of them were there, and it was interesting, the rule was they weren't allowed to talk about each other, weren't allowed to attack each other, but, they occasionally strayed from that, including newt gingrich. >> clayton: got one of the largest headlines, he went after mitt romney, answering
6:10 am
the question about mitt romney and went after him on the bain capital attacks, once again. let's listen to a little about that. as he gets booed and then governor huckabee slightly-- >> finds its way. >> georgetown has a steel mill which was closed, capital wasn't put at risk, capital was drained out of that company. governor romney, ran saying he created 100,000 jobs in the private sector, let me just say. >> mr. speaker, we said we will not allow any comment on the other candidates. >> answering the question. let me say it differently. >> okay. >> i believe that it's fair to ask the records be clear. aen that people reveal what happen happened. >> dave: look, he certainly found his way and in explaining that the democrats are going to hammer romney on this, we ought to do it now. this is again not a popular line of criticism for him. it's not working with conservatives, but it is helping him in the polls. >> clayton: or is it? >>. >> dave: continuing. well, not with conservatives,
6:11 am
but you're right with the polls, it certainly seems to be helping. >> clayton: undecided voters down there who-- ooh. >> dave: then should he have to talk about what happened with freddie mac and what he did there specifically. >> clayton: sure and he had answers for that, obviously what happened in iowa, we saw the negative attacks in iowa and precipitous drop there. >> alisyn: what many conservatives, including monica crowley said, she said it on the air here, basicallies' reading from the same script as the democrats. that newt gingrich at times rick perry, have been saying things from the obama playbook about capitalism, or about the free market or about bain capital. let's listen to monica crowley. >> i think the whole occupy wall street movement was orchestrated to provide president obama with a major campaign theme, which is income inequality. >> 1% versus the 99%. mitt romney certainly fits the 1%. and they'll do everything they
6:12 am
can now that they have the back drop, the evil capitalist, he's the 1% and not on your side. now that obama has the ammunition to go against them and i think all along that romney was going to be the republican nominee, why they set it up this way. >> clayton: i don't think there's anything worse said about newt than when richard trumka, afl-cio says i'm with newt on the bain capital attack. the worst endorsement he could have possibly hoped for. >> some of it leveled by republicans. and 2008 jn mccain said some of the same things during the debate right to his face and these have been out. rush limbaugh on wednesday said this is an assault on the system, on the capitalist system. let's listen to rush this he can woo. >> capitalism, economic liberty is being assaulted on every front. the current occupant of the white house is a sworn enemy of capitalism. it's abundantly clear that
6:13 am
obama intends to run for reelection by running against capitalism. he's already on that path. >> and in fact, i mean, rush is right in that obama's campaign has leaked a memo calling romney a corporate raider and painting him as one of the develop -- vulture capitalists, and it's confusing when both sides use the same language. >> dave: and muddle it more, no one argues what the president is doing, streamline, cut out excess, overlap, lose a few jobs and save money. doesn't that sound a lot like the model for private equity? to me it sounds an awful lot like what bain capital is doing. >> alisyn: you're not taking out a lot of debt. >> dave: you're cutting jobs on this. >> clayton: streamlining. >> dave: and streamlining things. >> clayton: and turn around the company. and turn around experts. mitt romney along the rope
6:14 am
line wanted his, i guess one of his workers wanted his-- >> staffers. >> clayton: i don't know if you want to say staffers, workers, volunteers the word i'm looking for, came up to him i've been out of work. what did mitt romney do, reached out of the pocket and fumbled through and handed her about 50, $60 in cash. take a look. >> i pulled up to a stop sign, a bus was there and bus driver i said go romney, go romney and followed the bus and i followed the bus to the airport and then they told me to meet romney at 5:30, we don't have a refrigerator or anything, he's a kind guy. >> alisyn: now, that's the story of how she found her way to the event because she just happened to be behind his bus. >> dave: by chance. >> alisyn: and she followed the bus and that was on wednesday. and she's since abouten following him around basically. >> and working. >> alisyn: and she's been to
6:15 am
many of his campaign events and in fact, he's-- south carolina campaign head, she's paid her electricity bill. now, this is all very kind, wonderful stuff, but she was undecided. she's been between mitt romney and rick perry. are you supposed to be paying somebody cash who will now be voting for you? >> well, one vote at a time. >> clayton: it goes back to another incident he was trying to go through his wallet, remember, and trying to find another bill that was a non$100 bill. a kid had come up to him at one point and handed him like a $1 he made in origami and he wanted to give him something back, thanks for the bill that you made into origami and thumbing through the wallet, i only carry $100's. >> dave: when you and i go through our wallet trying to find something that's not a one or a five. >> clayton: i'm lucky if i can find a one in there.
6:16 am
>> alisyn: meanwhile to your headlines, we have a fox news alert for you right now. western iraqi city of ramadi has been rocked by car and suicide bombings. four car bombs went off at a mosque in a police building. two suicide bombers struck at the building. it's not known how many deaths they are from the attacks, a day after a suicide bomber killed 53 shiite pilgrims in southern iraq. also this morning, police desperately searching for two men who opened fire at a missouri shopping mall. hundreds were running for their lives. >> i was scared, i thought we were going to die and hoping that everyone was okay. and hoping that god was with everyone. >> alisyn: this all happened at independence mall in kansas city. and police say that the victims were a man and a woman who reportedly had gotten into a fight with the shooters earlier in the day and both are expected to make a
6:17 am
recovery. an explosion in south korea, tears open a cargo ship, six men are missing, it happened far from the border with north korea and officials do not believe that the north was involved. it was carrying 80 tons of bunker oil and diesel fuel. no word of leakage. went from four contestants to two, the crowning moment at the miss american pageant in los angeles. >> your miss america 2012 is... miss wisconsin. (cheers) >> the one crying is the winner, the one smiling is the loser, it works that way. a 23-year-old figured 0 thought. she beat out miss oklahoma for
6:18 am
the title. and the wisconsin native is a singer, and won talent competition, too, guess who else was there? >> i just want everyone in america to know what these women are going 0 to do in the future and even with us behind us here, we're going to go on to be doctors and lawyers and politicians and tv anchors and i hope one day, president of the united states. >> gretchen carlson of course, also a former miss america, she was crowned back in 1989. looked great. how glamorous is that? >> wisconsin. you know that guy in "love actually" colin, i know clayton knows what i'm talking about. >> clayton: i'm not going to know "love actually". dave i have no idea what you're talking about, hung out to dry. >> dave: i bet you've got a go packers line, too. >> clayton: come over later we'll watch "love actually". and rick santorum getting a boost from social
6:19 am
conservatives in texas. >> this meeting in texas, people are trying to assess, not just who is the most electable, you know, who is the most electable conservative vis-a-vis mitt romney, but who is the most electable period. we're encouraged and have a lot to do. >> what does it mean for the religious right and are they going to support him and not mitt romney. david webb is panel of 365 and radio talk show host. elliss henican, a fox news contributor and liz, nice to see you. >> good morning. >> clayton: liz, what do you make of the split in the party. 100 evangelicals, holding a meeting this late in the calendar event for a party that always falls in line. what do you make of the split? >> i think it would mean a lot more except that mitt romney first of all has a huge immediate and secondly, there's not one other
6:20 am
candidate opposing him. even with the endorsement, santorum is one of several and i think that sort of keeps the numbers under making any tremendous surge. it's too late. i think that romney has a lot of steam and think that nicky haley's endorsement in south carolina sort of offsets that conservative endorsement from this group e elliss, can there be a vote split here? what we saw in 2008 and we saw in 2000. if there's a vote split in south carolina, can it come from rick santorum and romney be hurt by it? >> exactly. it's fascinating. conservatives used to be good in politics, this year completely skunked by the moderate guy from massachusetts frankly most of them don't like very much or trust very much. i'm afraid that it may just be a little too little, too late. too many of them still out there. >> and we hear some tea party rivet rifts in south carolina ap one tea party member saying that romney makes my stomach
6:21 am
turn. this idea is far removed from a tea party guy. >> unlike most liberals, conservatives different dreams, we don't have a singular mindset, a group thing. so essentially you have a conservative, a social conservative and they have to right to support their candidate. they're going to do that. i'm with liz, it's not going to have that much impact. you have a right to work state that has been under adult by the nlrb and the obama administration and i've been to south carolina. they're focused on the economy and that's the big story. 100 people in texas represented a large group of social conservatives, a nation of 300 million. we've got a look who we need to beat obama. santorum doesn't have the mechanism. even with the endorsement e does romney run away with it. he's got a point santorum has voted against right to work. >> hurt him in south carolina. >> clayton: for sure. >> i'd like to think, unlike
6:22 am
the stupidity of conservatives, and this should not be an election about social values, conservatives need to keep their eye on the ball and fight on economic issues and i think that's where romney's strong suit is and i think this is the year for that. obama should be running, should be held to account for the fact that we still have extremely high unemployment. and his policies have failed. >> elliss, i've heard it described as a difference between brooks brothers republicans and wal-mart republicans, the rift, that's happening in south carolina. do you agree? >> and that's a pretty good shorthand description. listen, the math seems so obvious to an outsider, right? >> something like 75% of republican party is self-identified conservatives, right? and yet, they're losing here, because they've taken their big chunk and sliced it into little bitty pieces and it doesn't speak for the pulse of the party and maybe it's brooks brothers and i would say it's something more like--
6:23 am
>> and david, i don't know where else-- >> and romney would exactly. >> you better go higher than brooks on that one. >> when you said there's a multiple ideas here, but when you look at the issues, it doesn't seem to be a lot of daylight here. maybe ron paul to one side, but when you talk about romney pro-life. there may have been considerations in the past. not a lot of daylight there. >> instead of group think, by the way, it's about 44% of the republican base that considers themselves social conservatives, the fact is that when it comes down to the economy and jobs, the little splits, the ar gruments, the disagreements, the debate, let it happen. let it play out. in the end, the republican party finally, if it hangs its hat on the social conservative in this debate. the real issues, the economy and certainly give obama victory. so, let's focus on the economy, the lack of jobs, the national security issues, we see bombings going on in iraq, we see a world falling apart,
6:24 am
the theater, we've got problems here that are bigger than our differences, if you will, in who goes to church. brooks brothers and wal-mart, they go to church. we've got to leave it there. thank you for coming in on a crazy morning, a lot of breaking news. david webb and great sunday to you guys. >> thank you. >> ali and dave, what's coming up on the show. >> congress heads back to work this week, what battles lie ahead in washington. >> airport security confiscated a cupcake, now, unwith baker has a way to get the tsa to back off. we'll meet her next. ♪ i just can't get enough, i just can't get enough ♪ ♪

president obama's request to raise the debt limit and that's the first major test for the g.o.p. leadership as they try to rein in some republicans who have not been happy with the way their bosses set the agenda last year. one freshman member told the new york times that speaker boehner needs to be clear about our strategy. and i got scolded back home and i really don't like it, leadership has to make decisions sometimes, but we could at least be on the same page. now, speaker boehner defends his record and his job performance, performance by saying, you know, i grew up in a big family and had my share of frustration, trying to come to decisions within the iffamily and 242 of us in the family and my job is to listen to my members and make a decision about how we move forward, get everybody on the same page, and go. it's not easy. 2012 is obviously a very important election year and a

major part of the president's reelection strategy has been to contrast his record with that of what he called a do nothing congress, but the congressman says he thinks more things now will get done since last year' huge freshman class knows how things work and says with the 25 seat majority you need to be together in order to govern with so many new members comes the challenge of getting everyone's expectations to be reasonable and having unified goals and i believe many more members have more reasonable expectations now and also says that the republicans will avoid infighting and if it's hard to find common ground. back to you. >> alisyn: oh, boy, should be interesting when they return. >> clayton: i love the idea how do you wake up after a fight. quietly-- >> hug it out. >> hug it out. >> give a kiss. >> or do you start it over again? >> depends how bad is the fight. >> we shall see what happens. let's get to your other stories making headlines,

6:36 am
super bowl rings and no one was talking about, routes the broncos 45-10 and gronkowski three first half touchdowns and the saints, what a game this one. arguably the best finish in post season history, four lead changes in the final three minutes and 53 seconds. and every time the saints kept coming back, and so, too, did the 49ers. and alex smith was just unflappable in this ball game. we should point out the saints turned it over five times in this game. drew brees threw 458 yards and four scores, but alex smith gets a touchdown pass late and the 9ers move on in the nfc. what a score that was, what's the final clayton, 36-32. >> clayton: right. >> dave: big win for the harbaugh-led 9ers. >> clayton: i twieted with a meant 37 all joe montana would have needed to come back and all he needed was a minute 28 to drive down the field.
6:37 am
>> dave: almost 30 years to the day after the joe montana, dwight clark, this time it was vernon davis with the catch. >> clayton: what an amazing game. >> alisyn: i was going to say all that, i'm glad you guys were-- >> you were watching the games. >> alisyn: it was on at my house. >> clayton: let's talk about something sweet, shall we. >> dave: let's do it. the tsa declared a cupcake security threat. and one business owners came up with an idea for a sweet that will pass through any check point. >> clayton: and seizing on an opportunity. capitalism at hits purist and sweetist. nice to see you, how did you come up with the idea, tell us about it. >> well, basically, cupcakes are really just a fun product and we saw everything that happened with the that. and we thought why not have fup and a spoof cupcake, we took a vanilla bean cake and

>> it's been a fixture at a rhode island school for nearly 50 years, but a judge has now ruled that this banner must come down. it's a victory for one student who filed the lawsuit, but not everyone agrees with this decision. >> the country was founded to be a secular country, church and state separate. >> i think they need to look at the whole population at the school an and not just one girl's opinion. >> david bradley wrote that banner, welcome. >> you wrote this banner back in 1960 when you were in the 7th grade. >> that's correct. >> alisyn: how it's considered a prayer banner, that wasn't your intention, what was your intention? >> i was assigned to write a school prayer and a school
6:52 am
creed, so it was indeed and conceived as a prayer. >> alisyn: fascinating. what did you think it was important to point out? >> it was important to make the prayer nondenominational, at the time because rhode island was heavily roman catholic in morning exercises we would recite the "our father" at morning exercises and it was perfectly all right back then. but as the school needed an identity and as we were a brand new school, i was tasked with the idea of a school prayer and i, being a rather open-minded person, decided that nondenominational prayer, if you will, would be a better alternative. >> how times have changed, david. in fact, let me read some of the wording from your prayer, in which you start with "our heavenly father grant us each day the desire to do our best, to grow mentally and morally
6:53 am
as well as physically, to be kind and helpful to our classmates and teachers and ourselves as well as others and help us to be good sports and smile when we lose as well as when we one. teach us the value of friendship, amen, that's a beautiful mention. you ended with amen and started with our father-- and that's what the girl who is an atheist objects to. >> and it was for the our father god, or deity. i thought gender neutral was more appropriate. >> and the state sponsored prayer in public school, therefore this is unconstitutional. what did you think when you heard the judge's ruling?
6:54 am
>> i felt disappointed, disenfranchised and i think my free speech is abrogated. >> alisyn: i know you've talked to school officials about this. we should say that the girl won her lawsuit, but she has left the school because she felt alienated after she brought the lawsuit and in fact, she has said that she's been the victim of some bullying now online and she in some way, feels even more isolated now. what do you say to that? >> i say it's very unfortunate. i think she should have thought of those things about of she opened up this can of worms. >> alisyn: what do you and the school administration plan to do now? >> well, i have nothing to say about it except to lend my uncompromising support to the city of cranston, and i can't say anything else about it because it's definitely in the hands of the superintendent and the school committee and their attorneys. >> alisyn: do you know if they're taking any more action, any further. >> i do not know. i hope they do.
6:55 am
and the attorney that handled the case before the ruling has stated, i believe, that he will continue to represent the city. the problem being that the city has to pay the legal fees of the other side regardless. >> alisyn: so, what if you had just taken out, they had taken out our heavenly father and amen. >> they would have to do more than that, cross out the heading, school prayer at the top and i would prefer that they did that and just put down, put an appeal or some word like that. >> alisyn: a school credo. >> no, school creed is on the other side of the auditorium, that exists as it stands and i wrote that, too, but to put up an appeal, cross out "our heavenly father" if that's what they want and instead of amen, put down that's all, folks, or something like that. >> alisyn: that works. i mean, it seems look this has really gone to great lengths

lot of the polls, but trying to make a move here in south carolina with just six days left now until people go to the polls and he got a big boost yesterday when that conclave of conservative and evangelical leaders decided on the third ballot that they were going to coalesce around rick santorum's candidacy. at a rally in mt. pleasant, he talked about that endorsement. >> what you saw with this meeting, in fact, people are trying to assess not just who is the most electable, you know, who is the most electable conservative vis-a-vis mitt romney. but who is the most electable period. we're encouraged by it and have a lot of work to do. >> he has a lot of work to do and little time to do it in. unlike in 2008 when they couldn't decide and consensus around huckabee, they wanted to do it before it's too late and you've got to ask with mitt romney wrapping up in the

process, could be already too late? >> governor romney ran saying he had 100,000 jobs in the private sector. >> mr. speaker, we're not going to talk about her candidates. >> i'm trying to answer his questions. i'll say it differently. >> went out of order, supposed to talk about what happened at governor huckabee's forum. a similar affair, most of the audience asking questions and most candidates sticking to policy. under strict rules not to attack the other candidates and most stuck by that rule and you heard from that slippet that he got booed by the audience, it seems that newt gingrich cannot help, but attack romney on bain capital. he'll go to a steel mill once owned by bain capital, went under and taking a number of jobs. in the end, gingrich is
7:04 am
running strong and his obstacle may not be romney, but the conservative leaders who decided to throw support behind rick santorum. >> alisyn: a lot of interesting stuff and interesting at georgetown, as john roberts can attack, when reporters went to gaffney, south carolina, another town held up by rick perry, this town is hurting since bain capital came to town, it didn't work out that way. that wasn't the narrative there. in fact, many didn't know that bain had ever been involved with its photo album company. let's talk about santorum and talking about the social conservative backing. and what happened in texas, evangelicals voting on the battle. a majority of them picking santorum as their guy that they think it sands for social conservative cause, however, there was some anger among some members there, and the way it was being portrayed in the media when they left the room. one individual said, wait a second, it was very, very close between rick santorum and newt gingrich.
7:05 am
it was very, very close, but some people at the forum, at this meeting in texas saying, it's being portrayed in the meeting as majority. everyone is for rick santorum. >> dave: exactly. and here is what tony perkins says about all of this. one of the leaders of this group. quote, from the outset, the stated goal of the meeting was to attempt to arrive at consensus. or a clear majority of support for a single conservative candidate. and that goal was achieved, while a super majority of those attending the meeting stated support for rick santorum as their preference in the republican primary and was made clear the conservative leaders could coalesce around any of the three presidential candidates who had strong representation at the meeting. gingrich, perry, santorum. and perry was the one that failed to get off the first ballot, but you wonder, it still sounds like they're fractured, doesn't it, guys? will it matter right now for rick santorum who has campaigned very well. are they coalescing around one
7:06 am
person? it sounds like they're split. >> it sounds like this he did. came to the conclusion that romney westbound the best alternative for them. three criteria they based on decisions on repealing the health care reform law, obama care, the debt, what you want to do about the debt and of course, abortion. >> what's amazing to me, there's no daylight on the issues on the candidates if you think about it. of course, mitt romney has been criticized for flip-flopping or pro choice and working to pro-life and when you actually look down the issues, mitt romney pro-life and rick santorum pro-life. >> and they want to overturn obama care and reduce the deficit. very little daylight. >> alisyn: what weight will this carry in south carolina? the decision made in texas yesterday, will people who are undecided, we know many of them in south carolina, will they take the 150 evangelical leaders' decision into the ballot room with them? >> rick santorum happy about
7:07 am
the endorsement of the leaders, says it speaks to his true conservative nature. >> this meeting in texas, people are trying to assess not just who the most electable, you know, who is the most electable conservative in vis-a-vis mitt romney. but who is the most electable period? we're encouraged by it. a lot to do. >> something interesting happened and at governor huckabee's forum yesterday. it was a great setup. undecided voters in the audience could get up to the microphone and ask the candidates directly the burning questions on their mind and help them make a decision. one person got up and posed a question to rick santorum and asked how can you be considered a true conservative when you voted to raise the debt ceiling six times? >> and yeah. >> the name is robert booth and mr. santorum and my question, how can you call
7:08 am
yourself a true conservative when you voted six times to raise the debt limit? >> thank you very much, i appreciate that, robert. and it was five, by the way, and ron paul says, i have checked, here is the issue, that have i voted and have i worked to get that budget deficit down and balance the budget and take care of the serious issues that we're dealing with. unformer, when you're a united states senator or congressman, you're know the president of the united states and you can't unilaterally stop spending which i could by vetoing bills and by proposing budgets. >> clayton: i've heard it described, i heard it described, political pundits calling the differences in south carolina right now the difference between brooks brothers republicans and the wal-mart republicans in south carolina. what do they mean? they mean that the finance republicans who have been transplanted from the northeast, the coastal areas to south carolina, the dem graphics were different than in the past. and david webb making the

7:48 am
period. their wives probably didn't work and she played the unusualness of her gender very skillfully. >> alisyn: you were consulted during the creation of the movie and what did you most want the movie makers to convey about her character? >> i wasn't consulted quite how they were going to do it. i was pleased with the results. i think they have conveyed the single-mindedness and the personal cost involved in that career. i mean, that you do see that she is sub board nating her husband, her family and everything to, to what she sees as her duty. her mission, you know, one's life must mean something, she says quite early on. and that is conveyed very accurately and well. >> is there a modern day equivalent of margaret thatcher? has there been anyone like her since? >> i suppose angela merkel in germany is the closest

the family was not at the event. and tom, not focus on the family, know the at the event. we seem to be an independent group and we have a long hit of being kind of independent-minded, so, folks from the outside, i mean, thank goodness for the work of all of those groups, very similar to our group, but i'm not sure that south carolinaions necessarily respond to the endorsements from the outside. i think the endorsements out there that are important are tim scott and jim demint, those are the ones i think people in south carolina are listening to. >> alisyn: you're the president of the palmetto family council. thank you for coming in with your perspective. >> thank you, appreciate it. >> dave: coming up, a nightmare at sea. like something straight out of "titanic." the cruise ship sinks with thousands on board. we'll hear from some of those frightened passengers coming up. >> alisyn: plus, we have a new miss america this morning. a look at the crowning moment straight ahead.

indiana the industrial states and i've put poles together that do that. >> reporter: yeah, he was talking about the fact that he has won four elections in very heavily democratic areas so when it comes to crossing party lines or at least being able to attract some of those independents that he could point to a record to say, look it, i did it. >> alisyn: everyone is trying to court the conservative vote there in south carolina. what is mitt romney doing to that end? >> well, yesterday romney's campaign put an ad up on the web touting high pro feel support for his change of heart on abortion saying that is something he should be applauded for, not criticized. romney, if not trying to attract a lot of social conservatives over to his side, maybe just making sure that they don't actively campaign against him. and he was asked a question yesterday during the forum that's appropriate for sunday morning, what would mitt romney do to protect freedom of religion in the united states, here is what he said. >> i will stand up for the
8:09 am
ability of americans to worship god as they choose i will proceed down the path you're seeing across the country, which is trying to secularize in america and manger themes, and menorahs representing other favorites. >> not many people in south carolina believe that mitt romney is a true social conservative. and when you look at voting at the conclave, he got three votes in the first round and never factored into the balloting. as your previous guests were seeing, some think that because of the potential lektability, social conservatives, at least some of them may indeed vote for mitt romney. >> and practicality versus ideology, on display there, thanks for breaking that down for us. >> you bet. >> and rick santorum did get a he thinks mention of the sweater vest last night and credited governor huckabee with starting it all. he first wore it in des moines at a governor huckabee event as well and took off from
8:10 am

>> social conservative leaders in texas is throwing their support behind rick santorum now. does that mean that the religious right is going to support santorum and not mitt romney? and who is this a problem for. >> alisyn: joining us now from washington, chris? >> good morning, guys. >> alisyn: does this endorsement from the 150 evangelical leaders breathe new life into santorum's run into south carolina? >> it certainly helps and we're going to be talking to rick santorum at the top of the hour. we're not quite sure how much it helps. here is the point. there were 150 leaders and almost three quarters of them voted, a super majority, to
8:18 am
back santorum, but it's not clear, first of all, the once who aren't backing santorum don't have to and the two others, rick perry and how much the ones that backing santorum are going to back him. go out on the air, going to urge their followers, are they going to provide money? so it's certainly a boost to santorum, whose campaign seemed to be flagging a back in south carolina, but we're not sure how big a boost. >> clayton: let me ask you the opposite question that alisyn asked. will it help, may or may not help santorum. will it hurt mitt romney trying to get some of the evangelicals in florida. >> that's not his base and some of the true evangelicals are not going tore mitt romney. it only hurts mitt romney if it unites the voters behind santorum. he's benefitted from the fact that it's been split among
8:19 am
santorum and gingrich and perry. if it's less split and they back, unite around santorum. that could hurt romney and that's what he's always feared that there would be a single romney alternative. so for there hasn't been he's been a free run as front runner. >> dave: and you also talked to rick tyler, the head of the pro gingrich super pac. it's interesting to see what they're going to do after newt called them out and said take out the inaccuracies over the king of bain 20 minute ad. if they made any changes in their attack against bain capital and mitt romney? >> no, they said we have some questions about the role you played in bain and we want you to answer the questions and until you do, we stand by the ad. we'll not only talk with rick tyler, a fair and balanced debate advisor to the super pac and the head of the club for growth, a very respected

8:25 am
a wonderful personality, a great mimic. and she, i can sum it up. images of her sitting on a box on a remote island in scotland singing lustily with her family or giving, giving her, serving her friends picnic on the moors of scotland and putting on yellow mayor gold gloves and cleaning up after everybody. so those kind of glimpses i think that people aren't accustomed to knowing about and also, her essential humanity. she was somebody trained from childhood never to express her emotions in public. and, but yet, but yet, when she's frustrated one of her cousins told me she'll often go out to a field in scotland and pull up a weed, called a stinking willy and walk and pull the weed and take her dogs with her and vent
8:26 am
frustrations that way. >> alisyn: it's that stoic, stiff upper lip perhaps on display at will and kate's wedding. some people thought she looked almost glum during that very festive occasion, but i know that you think that we were miss interpreting something. >> oh, we definitely were misinterpreting. she once sort of poignantly said, i don't have a naturally smiley face like my mother, but there's something else going on as well. when she's experiencing powerful emotions, she, she looks very somber, at the way of protecting herself. one of her, one of her colleagues once said that she sort of looks like a thunder cloud, but it's something that she does really to suppress those intense emotions that she's feeling. >> alisyn: such wonderful insights. again, the book is called elizabeth the queen and you were able to look at all sorts of intimate documents and letters, never before seen

8:37 am
in the private free market has gained a reputation of being able to squeeze out efficiencies, do the downsizing and layoffs that nobody else wants to do and people are willing to pay them to do it. here, with obama's kabuki exercise of government it's for sure. gesture politics in a campaign season. that without touching the massive spending on entitlements, that this is really isn't going to amount to much and it's sort of an old hat for democrats, something that they trot out every election cycle and everybody knows that it's just a dog and pony show. >> clayton: democrats would disagree. look, the president talked about it in the state of the union address last january, nearly a year ago when he did the whole salmon compare sop talking about the commerce department doing this kind of salmon versus salt water, if they're smoked it's a different story.
8:38 am
this was a whole year ago say democrats and finally getting it out, and putting it out to pasture? >> well, this is very reminiscent of al gore's reinventing government and like i said, i think it is an empty exercise when you're talking about laying off a few dozen or a thousand here, and at the same time refusing to layoff the taxpayer massive expepped -- expenditures and piling more on. >> we sound like a broken record because we talk about friday document dumps and this friday was no different. there was another release of e-mails that showed that some administration officials knew about solyndra and knew that solyndra was going to be firing people and it was in trouble before they ever let the public know. and could the solyndra thing still have legs? >> i think it does and i think we need to have some theme music every time they have one
8:39 am
of the friday document dumps. maybe the sound of the dump truck going doo, doo, doo. and it's a bad habit for the administration that says it's the most transparent ever. i think we've got to give a lot of credit to the republican watch dogs on the house side. particularly fred upton and cliff stern that chairs the committee that's been on the obama administration's case from day one about the coverup with solyndra. the white house is saying with the latest dump that it moves nothing, no evidence there's been any politicalization at all. but we have to remember that in the last document dump the department of energy was urging solyndra to postpone the announcement about the layoffs and the most recent e-mail show is that the communications between some of these underlings and carol browner, at the time the energy and global energy czar were worried and fretting themselves about the pr that would come from the layouts.
8:40 am
and the phrase, the take away phrase that the underling wrote was no es bueno. >> indeed. we want to talk to you about a guest that we had on earlier this morning, who wrote in 1960, when he was in 7th grade, a prayer mural for his school in cranston, rhode island and just this week, a judge had ordered that this be taken down because it begins with "our heavenly father" as you see and ends with "amen." other than those two things it's sort of a daily affirmation to students. and let's listen to our guest and have you respond. >> at the time as they say, it was perfectly all right to have an appeal to our heavenly father, rather than father god, or any particular deity, i thought that being rather a neutral gender, that it was a little more appropriate. i feel disenfranchised, not to say i'm outraged, which i am.
8:41 am
i think my free speech is abdicated. >> how times have changed since 1960 and the mural has been up and now they say it violates the constitution because it's a prayer on the public school wall. what do you think? >> you know, this is just another example of not only political correctness run amok in the public schools, but also, secularism, extreme secularism run amok. tolerance is always a oneway street for so many of the atheists who keep using the courts to enforce their own views on the public schools. when clearly this is something that was a proud tradition in that school system, apparently it was just one student who was carping about it, went to the courts and had some sort of judicial order. and i think it's a shame, what's happened here, when there are so many other harmful things that are spread and disseminated in the

8:53 am
did they do, speaking from south carolina, frank luntz. good to see you. what did you take away from last night. the voters were undecided and did anything help make up their mind? >> it was an interesting program because voters themselves got to ask the questions and i'll tell you two things, number one, a lot of the people were not undecided, they may say so, but they're not. second, for those who are, they're desperately trying to find the perfect candidate and they can't. and three things that illustrate what happened. first from newt gingrich. even though he performed quite well, he's the only one to cause this reaction from the audience, let's take a look. >> georgetown has a steel mill which was closed. capital wasn't put at risk, capital was drained out of that company. and governor romney ran saying he created 100,000 jobs in the private sector and, lets me just say-- >> mr. speaker we said we would not allow comments on other candidates.
8:54 am
>> let me say it differently. i believe that it's fair to ask the records be cleared and that people reveal what happened. >> now, in the polling down in south carolina, newt gingrich is clearly gaining and so the challenge is a distinction between gingrich and romney is increasingly clear and that's why gingrich is doing so well. make no mistake, the south carolina voters are not going to tolerate candidates that attack each other and that's a warning before tomorrow night's fox news debate. >> each of our states are under assault right now by this administration. but we may be under assault, south carolina, they're actually at war with you, i mean, the idea that they would come in here with their justice department and take on your voter identification law, that they would come in here and take you to task and you're having to spend money to defend your sovereign right to have immigration laws put into place.

9:01 am
captioning by, closed captioning services, inc. >> alisyn: we have to get to the breaking news, we begin this morning with a "fox news alert." about that horrible nightmare that school board described cou something out of the titanic, left in sheer panic after the ship hit the sand bank, rocks and sinks off the coast of tuscany. >> dave: what a scene, melissa was with her mom on the ship, celebrating her birthday and they were rescued by life boats and she joins us now on the phone from italy. thank you so much for being with us this morning. if you could, just describe for us what you saw, what the scene was like, the moment you realized things were not right aboard the cruise ship. >> caller: good morning. pretty much, me and my mom just
9:02 am
left dinner and we were going to explore the ship, we were only on there about three hours and we were walking down just to look for something. my mom -- we were looking for a bar, nightclub, and there was stuff lit up and, mind you, nothing on the ship is in english and there was something lit up and it was the cathedral and she went in and said a prayer and literally walked out and the ship turned, almost like it turned on like a 70 degree angle like you were going around in a -- turning in a circle and, just wouldn't, wouldn't turn back. everything was falling, we were trying to just get down the hallway, because, the hallway was on an incline, and, just get to a crewmember, but, none of the crewmembers spoke english and we couldn't figure out anything. there was a big problem is there
9:03 am
is nothing labeled on the floors, in the elevators, it doesn't say what is on the floor. there is no emergency exit lighting, there is nothing on the floor that lights up. i mean, the lights went out and it was a blackout. >> clayton: and besides the lack of english written on the ship, there seemed to be, from the the reports we have been reading, and hearing about, a lot of confusion among the crewmembers. >> caller: they didn't know anything and i can't blame them. they were in the same situation we were in. they had no information. we got to -- i kept asking crewmembers where the life boats were, no, you don't need life boats, go back to your room. not i'm not going back to my room and we figured out the life boats were on the fourth floor and went outside and people were getting lifejackets on and we didn't have a drill, like i have been on cruise ships before with royal caribbean and carnival and, you have a drill, first hour you are there. you know exactly where you are going to, where your life boat is and when we got into the room, we looked at the itinerary
9:04 am
and it said, 5:00 p.m., pretty much yesterday, the day after, that was our drill, and i joked with my mom, what if something happens today? we don't know where to go. >> alisyn: what happened when you got to the life boat scene? we heard it was chaotic. >> caller: we got to the life boats, no one is in charge, no one was like, i am the leader. in royal caribbean you have your leader and they say if there is an emergency they'll scan you off the sea pass card and know who got off and on the ship and there was nothing and so, they don't know when we got on the life boats, who was off and who was on, but we stood out there for an hour-and-a-half, on the ship while it kept getting lower and lower and no one said anything, a couple of people who said there was technical difficulties, and it was in different languages. so, we're trying to figure it out and found one woman who worked there, who was a dancer
9:05 am
from england, and she was the only one who was helpful to -- we stayed at a life boat and when the alarm sounded and there was someone who said we are speaking on behalf of the captain, i don't know if that meant he wasn't there. i don't know if the captain just didn't -- >> we know the captain is facing criminal charges, one of those charges is in fact abandoning his ship. what has happened since you got to land? i'm told of another chaotic scene there, people without passports and without credit cards and phones and no one helping them in their terrible situations, now they are on land. what is happening now? and where do you go from here? >> caller: i'm leaving on a flight in a couple of hours but, i mean, there is no one -- when we got to land, physically off the ship, first of all, our life boat would not open, it didn't open and i had to take my mom's hand and run to another life boat which we got on and found other americans and got off the boat, onto land which was an island, no one can tell us what
9:06 am
island we were on, where we were and no one made an announcement that said, stood on top of a car, there are thousands of people and i videotaped the whole thing, standing outside, not knowing which way to go, where to go, what to do and people are screaming for family members' names and standing on cars and trying to get ahold of anyone, there is no direction. there was a priest who opened up a church for us. in the town, the town people were really helpful. there were throwing blankets out. it was freezing. so we stayed in the church that night, by -- and it happened at 9:45 when the ship tilted, and, an hour-and-a-half later we weren't off the boat until 11:30, 1:00 a.m. i looked outside and there was still people on the front of the ship, the ship at this point in time was like 3/4 of the way already sunk, and, there were people, five lights i count, inside with flashlights they were making
9:07 am
signals, and, there was three blinking lights in the water. and i mean... it took them a while. there was not even a helicopter there, or a coast guard until 2:00 a.m >> alisyn: melissa, how are you and your mom doing now? >> caller: i mean, we're -- everyone is a bit shaken up, i mean, we have our lives, we're okay. we are coming home. but, i mean, there's just -- a lot of people, especially, i feel bad for the crewmembers because they were sent back onto the ship to find people, who they don't even know if were on or off and they they're ones who were hurt. >> clayton: wounded doing the searches. >> alisyn: melissa, thanks so much for giving us your dramatic experience. >> dave: and if you would, come see us, when you come back, we'd like to see that video you shot, we'd like to talk to you again, once you are back here, right near us, in connecticut, we'd like to see the video and hear about the experience again. >> alisyn: safe travels home.
9:08 am
>> caller: thank you. bye. >> alisyn: i mean, no drill, no safety drill, that should be the first thing that you do on a boat. >> dave: usually is and it is a subsidiary of carnival cruise and, it will be interesting to see where we go from here. >> clayton: politics, a lot happened as mike huckabee's g.o.p. presidential forum, yesterday on fox news channel. john roberts is live in south carolina with details of what took place last night. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, to you, clayton, alisyn and dave, it was a great opportunity for undecided voters and they number over 30% on the republican side, to take a measure of the candidates and actually ask them some questions and try to get some answers. now, rick santorum, is trying to become the consensus conservative candidate here, he had the big boost from the conclave of evangelical and conservative leaders out of texas yesterday and he was asked a question last night, that goes right to his fundamental
9:09 am
conservative principles and is the reason why he got the vote out of texas. he was asked why when it comes to abortion he doesn't have an exception for rape or incest. listen: >> the supreme court recently ruled that someone convicted of rape was not subject to capital punishment. that would be cruel and unusual punishment but that same supreme court said that a child of the womb, conceived from the rape could be killed. that is a country that has its morals up side-down. >> reporter: rick santorum said last night, for him it is the basic principle that every life is sacred. >> alisyn: and, john, we know that newt gingrich broke the rules a little bit last night that had been established by governor huckabee? tell us what happened. >> reporter: how long has newt gingrich been breaking the rules? >> dave: 30 years. >> reporter: they were told last night at the forum, the college of charleston, that you can talk about the issues, you can talk about your record, the only thing you can't do is mention your opponent, or attack your
9:10 am
opponent. and newt gingrich has been going at mitt romney so hard and the idea of the tenure at bain capit capital, business closures particularly in the state of south carolina, that he just could not resist last night. let's listen to what he said and the crowd's reaction. >> governor romney, he said he created 100,000 jobs -- >> we said we would not allow... >> answer his question. i'll say it differently. >> okay. >> i believe that it is fair to ask the records be clear. and the people reveal what happened. my total record is clear. >> now he has come under a lot of criticism from republicans in this state and across the country for attacking free enterprise, the capitalist system but he will not let it go and today is going to georgetown, halfway between myrtle beach and charleston, there was a steel mill there years ago owned by mitt romney's bain capital and it went under,
9:11 am
taking with it a number of jobs and, guys, he's not going to get the dog go. no way. >> on a day when rick santorum suddenly got 150 evangelicals to vote for him, as their candidate of choice, mitt romney, last night i guess, trying to court some of these social conservatives. was there anything that he said last night that you think helped him? did he say anything to talk to those individuals? >> reporter: you know, i guess that is in the heart of social conservatives and evangelicals. and they number 60% in the state, mitt romney has never been a favorite of theirs, the conclave, the first round of voting, only got three votes and there are some social conservatives who are pragmatic and they say mitt romney looks like an electable guy and maybe if we have to hold our nose we can vote for him. he also had a web ad out yesterday, running this weekend and, touting high profile support for his record on abortion and that is his change of heart, going from a pro-abortion stance to a pro-life stance and yesterday he
9:12 am
was asked a question, appropriate for this sunday morning what mitt romney to do to protect freedom of religion in the country. here's his answer. >> i will stand up for the ability of americans to worship god as they choose. i will not proceed down the path that i think you are seeing across this country which is to try and secular rise america. i think we ought to be able to have manger scenes at christmas time and menorahs, representing other faiths. >> reporter: no friendship trees, no candelabras, he wants christmas trees and menorahs. we'll see how it goes with the vote, it is don't campaign against me, it is okay if you vote for me. >> alisyn: makes sense, john roberts, thanks so much for bringing that to us, last night for those who missed it. thank you. >> dave: and a reminder, folks the fox news debate is tomorrow night, right here, bret baier will host it again, from south carolina. >> alisyn: meanwhile, to the rest of your headlines, we begin with the "fox news alert," the western iraqi city of ramadi is
9:13 am
rocked by car and suicide bombings, four car bombs went off at a mosque and a police building and two suicide bombers struck inside the building. it's not yet known how many deaths there have been. from the attacks, this comes a day after a suicide bomber killed 53 shiite pilgrims in southern iraq. and, yet another roadblock, for the trial of the 9/11 suspects. a defense lawyer at the gitmo military court says new rules from the detention commander in cuba violate the ethical obligations as an officer according to court documents which say the commander ordered all correspondence between defense lawyers and suspects be inspected. the argument being that it violates attorney-client privilege and one suspect is refusing to meet with his lawyers because of this new ruling, and the lawyers are asking the federal court to step in and sort it out. looking for two men who opened fire at a missouri shopping mall, the scene leaving two shoppers injured and hundreds running for their
9:14 am
liars. >> i was scared. but we were inside and, hoping that everyone is just okay. >> alisyn: it happened at the independence center mall in kansas city. the victims were a man and woman who had reportedly gotten into a fight with the shooters earlier in the day and both are expected to make a full recovery, those are your headlines. >> clayton: thank you, alisyn. coming up on the show... sing-songy. who better to ask about the mindset of the south carolina voter than the state's former governor? mark sanford, joins us live with insights. there he is on what it means to the people in this crucial state. we'll get to the heart of it, with the governor, next. beth!

9:17 am
>> dave: less than a week until the south carolina primary, let's look at the recent polls, showing mitt romney slightly ahead of newt gingrich. with ron paul in third place, so, despite the lead mitt romney currently has, can he still lose the social conservative vote in south carolina? joining us this morning, fox news contributor and former governor of south carolina, mr. mark sanford. good morning to you, governor. >> good morning back to you. >> dave: the development over the weekend, is that social conservatives rallying around rick santorum, as their guy. will it have any impact on the south carolina voters, or are they determined to make up their own mind?
9:18 am
>> reporter: well, we're a determined lot and i think they'll be fairly determined to make up their own minds. i think it is an important indicator and frankly not all that surprising. i mean, i think you would expect a group of social conservative leaders to back somebody like rick santorum given his credentials on that front. i think the bigger question, though, is will social conservatives -- state in english, will the social conservative in essence drive the election in south carolina and i think the answer is no. it will be an important factor but i don't think it will ultimately drive the election. >> dave: should it? because earlier we talked to david webb, now a tea party leader and a radio host and he said that republican voters should is not put social values first in the election, if they do that, he says it will lead to president obama being reelected. do you think republican voters should first vote the economy and then social values? >> i don't think that there is
9:19 am
anything else they should or shouldn't do. i mean, i think that, again i go back to the individual nature of each one of the sort carolinians or for that matter americans, we'll make up our mind as we see fit and i think the reality of the election cycle is the economy, and jobs that are going to lead the train and you could be a social conservative, but, if you live in greer or gaffney or taylor, you pick the spot in south carolina, and, at the end of the day you lost your job, or your cousin lost his job, and your wife is struggling in terms of where she'll work next, what will drive your train, i suspect is jobs and the economy. so, again, i think it is an important factor, jobs and the economy and the debt and deficit are probably going to be bigger issues, this year. in south carolina. >> dave: when it comes to jobs, newt gingrich again, hammering on mitt romney's time at bain capital though he changed his direction a little bit. is it resignation with the estimated third of south carolina voters who are still undecided?
9:20 am
>> yes. but i think in a negative way. i think his rise in the polls has been despite those super-pac ads against vulture capitalism, et cetera. you know, i think he -- certainly is being talked about and maybe that helped, but i think, for a long time, here in the state, people have been looking for a romney alternative. and, that is why you have seen sort of musical chairs, the flavor of the week or the month as we went through the election cycle, both in our state and other states but this is crunch time and, sort of the last stand for a number of these candidates. to have their shot, and, in south carolina, it is a very conservative state, more so than new hampshire or iowa and so i think what you are seeing in terms of the tightening of the polls is, look for somebody else. >> dave: interesting, she debate, tomorrow night, we'll watch, tomorrow night, governor mark sanford, thanks for joining
9:21 am

9:26 am
jesus, my lord and savior, life, my talents and the ability to be here and a lot of the criticism is over the top, but, clayton, the statement that he just made. i don't know what poem it reminded you of. >> clayton: hmm... >> all about quizzing. it reminded me of a poem my dad quoted to me, rudyard kipling, who said if you can treat triumph and disaster, those two imposters just the same, then you are a man, my son. >> alisyn: he does. he is not saying, you know, now that we lost, you know, i think i'll convert... >> now i'm an atheist. that is sillness, we have a man who believes in his faith and lives it and does it in a public life. >> clayton: getting down on one the, publicly. >> dave: tim tebowing. >> clayton: and a got a lot of tweets saying i'm a christian and it goes against the bible

9:33 am
expecting. >> reporter: president obama is trying to get himself reelected by running against what he calls a do-nothing wrong and the truth is congress was deadlocked on important measures for much of last year and now, some republican congressmen are coming out, saying they hope their party can finally get together and the g.o.p. leadership and speaker boehner specifically can get everyone in line so they can move forward on more of a united front now that the huge freshman class from last year had a year to get used to things on the hill. congressman schatz says with a 25 seat majority you need to be together, and, with so many new members comes the challenge of getting everyone's expectations to be reasonable and having unified goals, i believe many members have more reasonable expectations. and others said the speaker needs to be clear. i get chewed out by folks who
9:34 am
said, why did you fold? i got colded back home, and i don't like it, leadership has to make decisions sometimes, but we could at least be on the same page and in ba wayne -- boehner said, there are 242 of us in the family and you'll have divergent opinions and, it is my job to listen to everyone and get everyone on the same page and go and it's not easy and this wednesday the house will take on the first major order of business, voting on a resolution of disapproval, of president obama's proposal to raise the debt limit, $1.2 trillion. back to you. >> alisyn: thank you very much. >> dave: thanks. >> alisyn: a preview of what we can expect. thank you. >> clayton: yes. we have a little bit of breaking news, newt gingrich just asking -- saying he'll release his tax returns. this thursday, and calling on mitt romney to do the same. he has been asking for that a

[screams]. >> alisyn: they said it was a blackout afterwards and the amateur video was taken that's ship started going down, at least 4200 passengers were on board. you can hear how panic-stricken they were, italian officials say 17 people are still missing at this hour and one american passenger said he really thought it was the end. >> caller: you a

that will happen this afternoon when she tries to get the new tsa friendly cup cake through security at the airport in providence. we'll see what the tsa agents do. >> dave: first you need to screen the cup cake itself. >> alisyn: for danger. >> clayton: for danger. no other reason. >> alisyn: yes. i mean, i consider it my specialty, i test them out by eating them. >> dave: attention, alisyn camerota on the care package, please... >> alisyn: right. it is only fair. >> clayton: allergies she should be made aware of. >> alisyn: i'm okay with anything. >> clayton: let's check in with maria molina, looking at our forecast. >> reporter: good morning, a chili one across the northeast and new york city now at 16°, factor in a little breeze and it feels a lot colder and we are talking about windchill temperatures, in new york city in the single digits, that is the story across the northeast and some interior parts of our area, actually dipping below zero at times, now, we do have a big game, new york giants against the packers tonight and we're expecting dry conditions, and surprisingly it will be a
9:41 am
warmer day out there, at 4:30 p.m., for the game. we're expecting a kick off temperature of 27°, factor in the wind and it could be feeling cooler, low 20s, we are expecting and otherwise, dry weather, good for football and green-light there. today's forecast will be warming up just a little bit across parts of the northeast, 27 will be our high in new york city and sunshine, and again, the wind is going to be a lot cooler out there and across the south it will be a beautiful day, a lot of sunshine, highs in the 60s, 53, across parts of atlanta, and the midwest, also seeing relatively quiet -- staying quiet but all the trouble is out across the west and we're getting a lot of snow, guys, across parts of the cascades, and the northern rockies. >> alisyn: sounds good, thanks. >> clayton: newt gingrich said he'll release his tax returns and is urging mitt romney to do the same, this thursday. what is the former presidential candidate and governor, mike huckabee -- what does he think about this? that is him, you know him well. we'll ask him this very question

>> alisyn: undecided voters in south carolina got a unique chance to speak directly with the republican presidential candidates vying for the party's nomination and thanks to governor mike huckabee who hosted the forum in charlotte, yesterday -- charleston. don't try to trick mean, prompter! i don't just read you directly, i think, occasionally, prompter. >> clayton: governor mike
9:45 am
huckabee joins us from little rock, arkansas. prompter, take the governor full in one shot and we'll ask this question, something came up was the idea of releasing records. newt gingrich talking about this. we need to have transparency, well, this morning he's continuing that theme, and, a little bit of breaking news we wanted to bring our audience this morning, he says he will in fact release his tax return, thursday and he's redoubling his effort for mitt romney to do the same. smart move or mistake? >> it is smart on his part, saying i've done it, now everyone else should, having had released them over ten years, almost 15 during the time i was office, is the dumbest thing you can document here's why: how many people understand their own tax returns? not many. they don't even do their own tax returns. how many would possibly understand someone else's tax returns and i imagine mitt romney's tax return is very complicated. and i'll tell you what you do, like loading a gun, point it to your own head.
9:46 am
all it does is give reporters and opponents fodder to attack you. why would you possibly do something the law doesn't require to you do that only has negative consequences? >> dave: right, because we know it will turn out, mitt romney paid the lower tax rate than most americans, you are right. certainly it cannot end well. regarding your forum, last night, we had frank luntz on earlier, who said a lot of the undecided voters who were there last night are still undecided in south carolina. why? >> i think it's not because they don't like any of the candidates, though, you know, that may be the reads you get from some. i think all the candidates have qualities they like but none of them have all the qualities they want. it is not like -- unlike going to the supermarket, when you are really hungry, looking up and down the aisles, and you can't find a thing you want to eat. or going to the television guide and there are 200 channels and other than fox news, you can't find anything you want to watch. the point is, if you you are just saying, gosh, i don't know what i want to do, everything
9:47 am
looks good and nothing looks good and i think that is what we're seeing in the republican primary. everyone will come down to it, people are breaking late, but, what they really want to do, they want to beat barack obama, that is the one thing that unifies the republican party right now, they want a new president. and, so what they are looking for is not just the guy that is exactly the dream team but someone who can beat barack obama, that is their number one priority. >> alisyn: let's talk about the evangelical leaders who got together in texas and decided after a lot of deliberation, frankly they were going to back rick santorum. what is the significance of this for him? >> it is very good news for him in that it gives him a boost, it raises his profile, it shows that he has street cred with evangelical leaders. i don't think it translates into a significant vote bump. again it gives him attention. but, here's why. the constituents of these leaders have already hitched
9:48 am
themselves for the most part to a wagon and most have made a decision, they will not change it is because somebody heads an organization they give $10 a month to, says we'll support rick santorum. a great bump for him but i don't think it's a seismic shift in the election. it could have been but they waited too late. they should have done it six months ago, not after two primaries happened and 7 days, before the south carolina -- >> alisyn: why didn't they do it sooner? >> i think they couldn't decide among themselves, the same thing happened four years ago, and, they were unable to come to a consensus, as to which candidate they liked and some of them, though they say we are feccolken val -- focused on value issues and they wanted to talk about defense issues and that is like the nra wanting to talk about a candidate's position on global warming, the nra has one issue and it sticks to the issue and
9:49 am
doesn't care what a candidate thinks on other issues and if these leaders want to be credible they have to stick to the issues for which they are known and put nothing else on the table and then they have punch and power. >> clayton: mark thiessen was on our show earlier, former speechwriter for george w. bush and he said with the fractured candidates that was not a threat to mitt romney but now with the idea of santorum being this one evangelical choice, that could really be a threat to mitt romney, split though vote and hurt him in florida, going forward. do you agree or disagree. >> not necessarily, because, again, newt gingrich has a lot of strong support from evangelicals. so does rick perry. ron paul does. and, so, yes, i want to make clear, i think it is a very, very wonderful thing to happen to rick santorum and his campaign. does it suddenly thrust him abo above everyone else? it might have a few months ago before the primary start. at this late stage of the game, too many people are invested and will not walk away from the investment they have in their
9:50 am
candidate, be it newt gingrich or someone else. >> dave: stick around, governor, we have a question for you next, and it is about rick perry asking you to be his vp, when did it happen and why did you say no? >> alisyn: have you said no? >> dave: i think we can safely assume he's still on the network. we'll ask about that in a minute. >> clayton: we'll have him have his oprah moment with us after the break. wake up! that's good morning, veggie style. hmmm. for half the calories plus veggie nutrition. could've had a v8.
9:51 am

9:53 am
>> dave: welcome back, my friends. we are back with governor huckabee who, surprise, surprise, was asked about being a vice presidential candidate, you know what? governor, i need more coffee. alisyn... go! >> alisyn: this was a great moment, because rick perry who had i thought a very strong night, and seemed funny, he seemed comfortable, gave a solid performance. >> dave: did well.
9:54 am
>> alisyn: and i think his best laugh line was this one: >> how are you. >> excellent, thank you. >> my question is about your possible vice presidential pick. >> my question is what you got going on next year? >> alisyn: the crowd liked it, they liked the idea that next year you could be the vice president. what is your response? >> i gave it last night. i said, you know, i am doing the show, so there it was, it was a great line by rick perry and unexpected by me and i'm sitting there, minding my own business, over there in my chair, and he suddenly thrust me into it. it was a great line and i agree, i thought he had his best night of the campaign and i told him so. he seemed very much in command and relaxed and had solid answers and a lot of energy. >> dave: he did well the last time around. >> clayton: historically, great
9:55 am
founding fathers of the united states said the vice presidency is a worthless and actually a boring job and it wouldn't take up a lot of your time. you could fit it in. >> dave: what if you were asked by mitt romney say in a month. >> i don't think anyone will ask me, but i was a lieutenant governor before i was a governor and i thought the best description of that job, is similar to the vice president's job, like being a spare tire, you are supposed to be kept out of sight, in the dark and all pumped up in case they need you for something. and, you know, i'm loving what i'm doing, and, i'm probably not going to apply for the job. >> alisyn: let's talk about the debate that is happening, tomorrow night, in south carolina and you having come out of a room with so many undecided voters, do you think there is something that can happen tomorrow night that will move the needle, and, lower mitt romney's chances of winning and raise somebody else's. >> the race will tighten up in south carolina and it already is and that is typical as it gets
9:56 am
down to the moment. one of two things could happen tomorrow night. if mitt romney has a strong, commanding performance i think he moves ahead and people say, okay. maybe there is a reason he's the front-runner and even for those he is not their first choice, they assume he's a legitimate choice and they go with him and if somebody else could be newt, rick, santorum or perry, could be ron paul, huntsman, any could have the magic moment in which they say something so soaring, like the ronald reagan, i paid for this microphone, mr. green, but, that is what it will require for someone else to break out. they'll have to have a big moment tomorrow, or otherwise i think the field drifts toward where it is today. >> dave: let me ask you about ron paul, say he ends up, even if he doesn't get the nomination, if he has the second most delegates what does the republican party do to bring him and his supporters into the fold and is that possible. >> alisyn: you have ten seconds. >> they ought to give him a key spot at the convention and let
9:57 am
him speak. >> alisyn: shorter than ten seconds. >> clayton: future vice presidential candidate and host of "huckabee" on the fox news channel. nice to see you, governor. >> good to see you guys. >> clayton: more "fox & friends" in two minutes. you can with green giant frozen vegetables. over twenty delicious varieties ha sixty calories oless per serving and are now weight watchers-endorsed. try green giant frozen vegetables with sauce.
