6:07 am
record you can imagine for heat for the month of march has been broken. that will continue to fall, again, for the next couple of days. here is today, tomorrow, another extremely warm day and this will breakdown, out west, but we are talking about a slow on tuesday or wednesday and with it severe weather will fire across the planes for the weekend. guys? >>dave: the green temperatures ... mother nature is irish. >>alisyn: the campaign is in high gear. not just for the g.o.p. candidates but the white house. president obama is now officially on the campaign trail. the rhetoric has changed. the "los angeles times" writes this is the earliest and biggest campaign ever if presidential history. >> he made five stops and made $5 million in five stops. >>dave: impressive.

6:10 am
philosophy that everyone is better off left alone, meaning the g.o.p. >> it made it sound like that is his philosophy. what is the standard for a presidential race as you get close to a presidential election? people say, am i better off now than i was four years ago. i am not sure when that started, maybe the reagan administration? deaf dave we report, you decide. when the president took office, the big thing you hear about today is gas prices and they were at $1.81 a gallon. and now they at $3.84 and the last month has beeningly and it will be well north of $4 a gallon because we will switch over to summer fuel and driving miles will increase. >>alisyn: and we hear, because of the tea party, the national

6:18 am
this, and that is the control. no different than all the different cultures that came here. if you can control a population, then it gives you more power but that is not how you get out of poverty. it is saying what you do and what you know is translated to money. i say that on oprah i took my parenting skills and applied to business. with that mindset you can do anything. >> is there a place for government to help if you need to be helped? >>guest: this is where i believe where the family unit, and, obviously, whoever the main person is, but, also, the community, and this is why small business important because small business is the glue in the community and to rally around someone this is why when big athletes or stars go back to the community and say i was you, the kid on the corner with nothing and look what i did.

>>alisyn: is calling for a boycott on broadcasters like a tv show or a radio show, is it un-american? here is what bill o'reilly said.
6:24 am
>> americans are calling for firing boycotts, and criminal prosecution in one case, all for speech they don't like. we want a vibrant mechanic, free speech all over the police but when the speech turns irresponsible the market should dictate not pressure groups with threats. >>alisyn: we have a fair and balanced debate we is comic and columnist and partner of a group. is calling for a boycott stopping free speech or an example of free speech. >>guest: organized boycotts where the goal is to cancel a show, yes, that has a chilling effect on free speech. as an entertainer, like rush limbaugh, and i condemn what rub -- rush limbaugh said, it was hateful and mean but when you see press speech that you hate,
6:25 am
well, the test of free speech is to give the right for people to speak with speech you do hate. >>alisyn: as a come i think you may say some offensive things and you want the ability to say that. what do you think? is this boycotting, does it put have avilling effect on free speech? >> it could impact what people say but not chilling effect on free speech it is an extension of the right to say what you want because they are calling for a boycott. how is them calming for a boycott a contradiction. the boston tea party, that was an economic boycott. >>alisyn: having said that, isn't the most democratic thing to vote with your clicker. a broadcast, you can change the channel. isn't that how we decide if we like what we hear. >> the difference in turning off the show or you can say i don't like that the advertisers advertise on this show so i
6:26 am
won't buy but when the say the goal is to cut down speech it cuts both ways. bill maher made a controversial statement, and i think he is funny and smart and he was thrown off, and david letterman, an attempted boycott from sarah palin joke, and it cuts both ways and what will happen, the chilling effect on free speech. >>guest: the last point of letterman was an attempted boycott. this is a battle and this is a continuing of the narrative that started with rush limbaugh from the obama administration saying this is health care courage, to his opponent saying it is religious liberty to, morality, to rush limbaugh. that continued into us talking about well, free speech and the ability to talk about these things. in the end what matters is the narrative. i have a right to put my narrative out there and this narrative of free speech is what
6:27 am
is taking hold. >>alisyn: if people called on you to be fired for something you said, isn't that chilling effect, rather than just your free speech. >>guest: it is horribly chilling for me but everyone has a right to say what they think and they can call the show after and say never have that guy on the show again. the constitution guarantees rush limbaugh or our ability to soy anything we want but it does not guarantee us to have the bully pulpit of our own radio or f show which to say. >>alisyn: we will leave it there. i bet the viewers will write in. you can fiend me on twitter and at thank you for coming in, gentleman, to debate this.

6:42 am

6:54 am
created basically taking catholic ad, exchanging islam for catholicism and they rejected it. >>guest: i used the same people plat but i flipped the language and i referred to their 18 market 560 islamic attacks since 9/11 but the same ad, and the cartoon i supplanted the bishop with the blind sheik behind the world trade center attacks. >>alisyn: here is how "new york times" responded when you tried to pay $39,000 to run your ad they say the fallout from running this ad now could put u.s. troops and civilians in the afghan region in danger. do they have a point? >>guest: do they have a point? this is hypocrisy. you consider they ran 32 front page consecutive news stories on

6:56 am
there is no way they will run it and they made their bias moan. painfully clear. >>alisyn: you are not alone, the catholic league agrees and says this decision was based on either anticatholic bigotry or fear of slam i think violence and they painted themselves into that corner and "new york times" said they will consider your ad if a few months. >>guest: i am holding my breath. you can visit me at the morgue but this is in the first. they do do not, i think, ever run that ad. when did they ever worry about the troops. ever? >>dave: next a frightening scene at a carnival when a little girl falls off a ride and the entire thing caught on camera. we have the latest on her

peter? >> the day after president obama's re-election team released the 17-minute long documentary highlighting everything they think he has done right the last these years, the president on friday hit five fundraisers two in chicago at the palmer house hilton bringing in $2.1 million, and three in atlanta, one in the private home, one at tyler perry's house and studio including a performance with this. >> the philosophy is simple: everyone is left to fend for themselves. if those in power can make their own rules somehow it will trickle down to you. and they are wrong. >>reporter: he was talking about republicans and the final four have something to say about
7:03 am
the president's philosophy including romney is in the president's own backyard of illinois. >> the president takes your money and invests in the people would helped him in the campaign, this is a political pay back of a kind that distorts the way the market works and frightened entrepreneurs. it is the wrong path for america and something which the american people have had enough of. >> the president did not get back from illinois fundraiseing until 12-39 -- 12:39 this morning. >>mike: so, tyler perry's house in atlanta, is that where oprah was? >>dave: why foe -- know i was not invited.
7:04 am
everyone gearing up for as peter mentioned, illinois, the negligence big battle happening in the republican party, and romney again looking good there if you look at the latest rasmussen poll at 41 percent compared to rick santorum's 32 percent, and rick santorum is knock filed a full slate of delegates in illinois which could hurt him, and we continue to say, this is the next "must win," for romney, and we have said this a dozen times but it is another big state, big cities, and a big tv buy. >>alisyn: so now romney and santorum are the frontrunners, they are, of course, slugging it out between the two of them. listen. >> we will not be successful if replacing an economic lightweight if we nominate an economic lightweight and i am an economic heavyweight i know how the economy works. >> someone believes in government mandate and romney care and believes in cap and

7:06 am
>> wherever we went in illinois yesterday people said you have to stay in the race, you have to talk about big solutions like $2.50 gasoline. the people who are supporting me want to have a reagan-like visionary of big ideas candidate. >>dave: this race will go on, why california could decide it, june 5th, 172 delegates, so buckle up. >>mike: it has been a roller coaster. why not stay in? >>alisyn: negative could happen in illinois. we have other news right now. we have an update on the situation in syria. 27 people were killed and 97 wounded by twin bombings in syria's capital this morning according to local reports. syria state news agencies call this blast "terrorist explosions." and the news agencies report that the government targets were

establishment play out and what they are interested in is winning. if rick santorum bets romney they will come out and them not want four more years of president obama, jobs are at stake, energy at stake. so rick santorum will do extremely well in this process. >>dave: we talked how big florida and ohio and michigan, and they not gone well for rick santorum. how important is illinois on tuesday? >>guest: well, all the states are big. >>dave: does he need to win a big guy to say he can win the huge swing states? >>guest: everyone says that romney needs to win the next big one. alabama and mississippi, show he can win in the south but rick santorum wins in the south. >>dave: but those states will go republican anyway. >>guest: the states you mention like ohio and michigan, if newt gingrich get out, and your poll shows, but if newt

8:25 am
coddle and cuddle him he will turn out to be a wimpy guy would will never be independent and grow up to be a real man but the truth is, it is not so. when moms keep their boys chose they raise independent strong guys and research backs that up. amendments amendments -- >>alisyn: you are not suggesting the mom would do their son's lawn and cook for their sons. >>guest: exactly, i would love to be clear about it when i said mama's boy i do not immediate the domineering smothering mom we see in movies like the clip you showed or beer commercials where mom shows up in the bar and cracks open the beer for her son, not that. but moms that give the boys security they need. >>mike: but you say they do better in school in and we have more self control than non-mama's boys.
8:26 am
>>guest: you know, it was fascinating to fine out. they do better in school. moms who are closer to their boys, those boys think of being masculine differently and they do not have the "i have to fight to prove i'm a man," but they more emotionally open. >>mike: because we need measure are you are you of the . >>dave: is there a line you can cross, though in too much coddling that a mom can do to her son? and it would harm him later in life. >>guest: i don't think it is a mom and son thing but a parent and child thing, we have all seen parents, the temperature helicopter parenting, but i can say we see it with moms and daughters and moms and sons. there is too much you can do. >>alisyn: i like a lot about

8:36 am
"don't do that again." >>dave: governor huckabee would do it. >>alisyn: but, first, the headlines the nypd is on high alert over the threat of a possible terrorist attack. tensions are at high after the master of 15 afghan villagers and the president obama trying to ease the continues calling president karzai and agreed to further discuss his request to remove all u.s. soldiers from the nation's rural areas in the next few days. in california, poised to be the largest city to file for bankruptcy because a report shows the city is spending $3 million each year on pensions. the problem, is the giant pension system bars cities from reducing the gives if times of financial difficulties stress. it is a protection unheard in the private sector and stockton

8:38 am
fundraisers in 24 hours raising $4.5 million and plow by 100 fundraisers over a week ago way ahead of president bush or president clinton. >> i maintain that the president is still spending the vast preponderance of his time on his official doubts. as is everyone would works here. >>dave: is he spending too much time? >>governor huckabee: i am not an expert at body hang but i can tell you he looked incredibly uncomfortable like, my gosh, what can i say that has any credibility and the answer is "nothing." when you have so were more campaigning than, bill clinton or president bush it shows you put undue level of it. does the president have a right to campaign? yes. should he raise money? yes. but, disproportionately to the
8:39 am
issues he faces as president? no. he has to start saying, the best campaign is good policy that has good results and that is not what we are seeing. >>mike: could the campaign be a distraction? >>governor huckabee: when people pay $10,000 or $20,000 a plate to see you they are not going to throw a plate at you it will be a loving crowd so, the fact is, he not only is getting a disproportional sense of where he is but he is getting way too much time spent in getting in and out of the event and doing the event and speaking to the campaign event. >>alisyn: and a pbs host talked about the best way to eradicate poverty and he says the government needs to do more. listen. >> there ought to be a national
8:40 am
plan not just to reduce poverty but eradicate poverty. other countries have done it. and we are better than having one in two americans out of poverty. >>governor huckabee: the answer is goes back to the democrats, if a child grows up in a family where he is the child of a double parent family, both parents have high school education and are gainfully employed the child has 88 percent chance he will never spend a day in poverty. but if he grows up in a single parent household with chronic unemployment and a lack of education the child has 91 percent chance he will spend the bulk of life in poverty. if you want to deal with poverty you create wholesome and monogamy marines and families where a child grows up and the benefit of that kind of stable environment. let me give you a couple of examples, the no fault divorce so prevalent in the 1960's that are the norm, they make it too
8:41 am
easy to get out of a marriage and the fact we pay people to not be worried with we benefits but we take the benefits away when they get married is a mistake. welfare reform in the 1990's when i was governor, so i know it well, the fact is when you help people transition from welfare to work that makes so were more sense than to punish them for beginning to work. i can give you examples where you had a woman who could only get a minimum wage job but if she took the job she woulds there wic, food stamps, and the welfare benefits so it was if her best interests and her kids' interest to stay. that is crazy. >>alisyn: last question on this. i am reading about johnson's presidency and he declared a war on poverty and during the presidency poverty dropped because of government intervention from 19 percent to 12 percent but what did they know then or what was different about what we are trying now? >>governor huckabee: the biggest mistake was assuming you
8:42 am
can give people something for nothing. if you give people something for something you get them out of poverty. that is the key. thought just giving them a check but a ladder up from the hole not just tossing food in the hole. >> "new york times" asked catholics to abandon faith and it refused to run another ad asking muslims to abandon their faith. was the paper too sensitive or did they have another motive? they say they were trying to protect the troops. wake up!

8:45 am
8:46 am
>>alisyn: after a "new york times" anticatholic advertisement want viral, controversy began, why refuse to publish an anti-islam ad? >>mike: governor huckabee, what is going on here? >>governor huckabee: a double standard here. imagine a television show that would be contemptuous of islam? no, but regular shows where christians portrayed as immoral or hypocritical, and that is okay. funny, and fine. >>dave: the backdrop, we have two ads, one in the "new york
8:47 am
times" anticatholic ad, basically exchanging catholicism for islam and "new york times" says they will not run the ad we trying to protect the troops and the quote was "the fall out from running the ad could put u.s. troops or civilians in the afghan region in danger." is that true? could that ad against islam put our troops in danger? >>governor huckabee: you mean they are not already in danger? they are in afghanistan, it is dangerous without a war. with a war it is dangerous. you are telling me an ad in the "new york times" make as war zone dangerous? the war zone is dangerous anyway. i will tell you something, we need to be very honest with the world. and saying, one of values we hold dear to us in this country is free speech and we recognize people have a right to stay stupid and offense ofive things but if they cannot understand that, get the heck out of afghanistan.
8:48 am
>>alisyn: but you cannot yell fire if a crowded movie theater and would this fan the flames in light the accidental koran building and the horrible attack, wouldn't this fan the flames. >>governor huckabee: i am not saying poke the tiger but it is ridiculous and absurd to play a double standard with our own constitutional protected concept of free speech. what are we going to do? have the christians say, we will burn down building if you offend us anymore? how does that go over? i am tired of, as a christian, personally, that i can be trashed and in every way held in contempt but i cannot say anything about someone else's faith that might be a muslim not that i want to because i am not about offending people. >>alisyn: should "new york times" not have won the anticatholic ad. >>governor huckabee: be consistent. if you run the anticatholic let everyone take a shot at faith.
8:49 am
as a newspaper they ought to run it because that is free speech. >>mike: in pennsylvania, in philadelphia, this week the governor signed off on the voter i.d., kind of a controversial thing. a big deal. he is a republican governor. and all the republican governors or for it, the i.d., and the democrat governors are not. what is the deal? >>governor huckabee: it is hard to understand why people are so if a froth over having to show a photo i.d. you have to do it to cash a check. i needed an i.d. to walk into the building. i am for that, i don't want someone not to be able to vote because it was difficult to get the photo i.d. but that is not the challenge, we can make it easy and we should but we hear about disenfranchised votes if you vote illegitimately you have disenfranchised we a legitimate
