"fox and friends" starts right now. >> gretchen: i thought we were going to hear it? >> brian: yeah. ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". note ♪ >> nothing that governor romney said is true starting with the notion of apologizing. >> mr. president, the reason i call it an apology tour you went to egypt, saudi arabia, turkey and iraq, and by the way you skipped israel, our closest friend in the region.
6:02 am
but you went to the other nations. and by the way theyinoid you skipped israel. >> both at home he has policiment >> attacking me is not an agend a. >> i am glad you realize al-qaida a threat. you said it was russia. >> i will not wear rose colored glasses when it come to russia and say to him i will have more flexibility after the election. we can't kill our way out of this mess. our navy is smaller. >> you mentioned the navy. we have fewer ships than 1916. we also have fewer horses and bayonets. >> steve: that will not win the president any votes in the virginia or new port news area. it was a busy last night. >> brian: i would say so. and i was stunned and i knew
6:03 am
all of the experts were wrong and on the heels when i say it went to libya and hey, you said one thing and ambassador rice said either. and now a drone over head. well, we know it is a difficult situation and fighting al-qaida. >> gretchen: i mouth fell to the bed. >> brian: i thought i can't believe what john mccain will. >> gretchen: that is one of the huge headlines. senior national correspondont john roberts up again and live in boca raton, florida. >> i am beginning to get used to this. >> gretchen: yeah. >> dejavu. >> steve: oh, my goodness. >> yes, you talk about last night's debate. it was more domestic than foreign policy than i have
6:04 am
seen. governor romney would try to bring it back in his wheel house and talk about a foreign policy that was based on strength. economically and diplomatically peace through strength and president obama looking presidential and disabuse people that he is a waffling warmonger. the president tried to undercut that and going on the attack from the beginning and including this exchange over mideast policy, watch. >> what we need to do with respect to the middle east is strong steady leadership and not wrong and reckless leadership that is all over the map. that is the opinions that you have offered throughout the campaign and it is not a recipe for american strength. >> attacking is not an aa and attacking me is not deal the challenges in the middle east and take advantage of the
6:05 am
opportunity there and stemmed tide of this violence. >> when it comes to the timing. president obama got 30 second and three debates it was more times but not the three minutes more. quite surprising, libya was not more of a topic of discussion and quickly to evolved to an debate about al-qaida. republicans were taken aback. why didn't romney go on the time line and why al-qaida is gaining strengthment the romney campaign told me libya is an important issue it is not the issue that is moving voterss and why you're going to hear the candidates talking relentlessly on the question. governor rum rhumb heading to las vegas .
6:06 am
sleepless 14 day two week grind in the election. >> gretchen: that's a lot of the adjectives to decibe. john roberts thank you. the democrats were stunned and not just republicans. stunned that mitt romney did not take that lay up of libya question. and wouldn't he? last time around didn't go so well, also it didn't go so well the last time and you don't want a situation where the president can dominate on a topic that mitt romney should cominant. >> steve: last time you had candy crowley who played the character in the third debate and that throughout, going forward they will leave the surrogates to talk about libya. clearly what was happen bob scheiffer did a good job. >> brian: very good.
6:07 am
>> steve: and for the most part mr. obama was trying to punch and trying to get mr. romney and he didn't take the bait. did he pass the commander-in-chief test, yes. >> brian: yes, i have a few things to say. if you are pushing for the president you got to be happy. he made eye contact and clear and contest. he only blinked four times. i thought he was going to make a hole in mitt romney's skull. on your point to mitt romney on libya. i think he was prepared to say troops should have been in iraq and hard deline is wrong. but this time i am not getting into this fight. it was not like with candidates. he was not thinking quick enough. i thought it was all intentional. >> gretchen: playing it safe.
6:08 am
>> brian: straat the time jick. america doesn't care enough even though it would be our benefit to have 10,000. but just leave that go and pick the spots that affect the economy and dig in on the autobail out and israel and jewish florida in florida and autobail out. >> gretchen: but he didn't want president obama to say he was a war monger when those wars are not popular right thing. one thing he hit him though. was the apologize of the president when he traveled to speak on behalf of america. this is why he believes president obama has been on a four year apology tour. >> nothing that governor romney said is true. starting with the notion of me apologizing. this is the biggest whopper that is told in the course of the campaign and every fact
6:09 am
checker. >> mr. president, the reason i call it an apologiy tour you went to the middle east and saudi arabia and turkey and iraq, by the way, you skipped israel, our closest friend in the region . you went to the other nation and by the way they did notice you skipped israel. >> steve: the president called it a whopper. what cactly did the president say back in 2009. we had somebody looking for the tape and here he is in france? >> instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there has been times when america showed arrogance and dismissive and derisive. >> brian: mitt romney remembered those three words and went right back at him on that comment and set the tone of how that speech was
6:10 am
digested and the president feels he raised our profile which the stats showed he doesn't. raised it in france and slightly in england. >> steve: one of the debate strategies you try to push someone to get into a fight with you. that generalic wise is behayou do when you are behind and commentators it seemed like mr. romney, if you didn't know any better seemed like the president and mr. obama was like the challenger trying to draw him in. >> how much do americans care about foreign policy . 10-15 percent say it is extremely important. one of the strategies was to turn the answers to the strong suits which is the economy which the election will come down to. how did they turn their answers romney and obama to focus on the commempt mitt romney had a response about
6:11 am
the economy and president obama talked about teachers. >> brian: under -- >> under my leadership we worked with governors in 46 states and progress in gains in schools that are having a terrible time and finally starting to make progress . now i want to hire more teachers especially in math and science. we know we have fallen behind when it come to math and science. >> i love teachers and i am happy to have states and communities that want to hire teachers but not the federal government pushing their way deeper in our schoolings. i was a governor of a state. i love teachers but i want to get the private sector. >> i always love teachers. >> steve: who won last night. pretty much in the pundit
6:12 am
class who ever their person was they say they won. ultimately mr. romney won the debate season. it was 3debates betwixt the three of them and how many people are going to vote come two weeks to the day on foreign affairs. >> gretchen: 48 percent. and 40 romney. cbs went more in favor to obama. now the rest of the headlines. autumn's body was found earlier. hundreds had gathered to pray for her safe return. her family called police when she missed curfew. her body was found in a recycling container.

>> gretchen: first question in lastt night's debate libya . questions over the white house response to the situation. governor rum rhumb stopped short of slamming the administration much was this say good strategy. we'll ask the co-octoberor of the book "here come the black helicopters". >> i thought it was not. i think he should have gone after him on libya and he should have focused on it. because there is no better way to inside the idea of moral equivulence than the way obama handled libya.
6:18 am
that guy shot that guy. >> gretchen: so why? >> i think he was trying not to get enmeshed in that and he felt in the first half hour he was playying preventt defense and is what teams do when they are ahead in the fourth quarter and they give up's touchdown when they do that. and he was much too passive. but he recovered and on the whole he did well in the debate. first half hour i was unimpressed. i said this is going to be a long night. >> gretchen: if you were on the strategy team. at what point do you make the decision not to attack. >> i think he got lost in the weeds last time. the main goal of romney in this debate other than to move it to domestical policy.
6:19 am
the image of him getting us in a war and shoot from the hip and be a cowboy and was propagated to obama and he set that to rest. >> in fact obama called him reckless. he moved it back to the economy because that is what people are going to vote on. >> obama doesn't try to defend his record on the commempt >> gretchen: on this statement from romney. >> i will get us on track to a balanced budget. the president's path will decline our take home pay. i want make sure we grow. i want people to get good jobs. my legislature in my state was 87 percent democrat and i learned how to get alongg.

6:28 am
needed to go to war in iran or send froopps in syria and all of that stuff was to debunk the idea the idea that he is a warmongered. women were worried he was a bush 43 shoot fromm the hip and he over that. the main thing that happened last night was not foreign policy. romney won the economic debate . obama's view on the economy is ridiculouss and doesn't defend his record well i think it will continue. rumny's momentum to the nomination. i think it will be unslackened and accelerate and more confident than ever we will have rum rhumb will have a land slide. 48 percent in the popular and 300 to 350 in the electoral vote. >> brian: out on a limb. >> i live on the lim.

>> governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets. >> we still do have bayonets. it was a cheap shot and weak joke and not presidential. >> brian: i believe we need ships because of oceans . could someone tell china to stop builds ships that we don't use. it was odd that governor romney didn't have a chance to follow up on that one. >> of course they are not ou of the date. that's how most of the cargo gets transported and we need sea lanes open for trade. >> brian: you heard both men speak 90 minutes about things that matter a lot to you and what you have done for a living. who keeps america safer? >> let me first say thousands of men and women who are putting their lives on the line and i couldn't be more
6:55 am
proud of them. i think with the lack of leadership and the disengagement in the middle middle and manufactured false narrative, i think governor romney will keep us strong at home and help us be strong at over's ises. his world view is rooted in rhetoric . i think he will be the next president of the united states. >> brian: we are all out of the afghanistan in 2014, are you okay with romney saying that. and obama doing that. >> as long as we listen to the commanders on the and i am okay if the conditions us pulling out, absolutely in a safe and smart way. >> brian: former navy seal scott taylor. thank you for joining us and your service. >> thank you, god bless you

facts? >> you skipped us scream you went to the other nations and by the way, they noticed that you skipped israel. >> did romney prove that he could be commander in chief, as well? we report and you decide. >> the president very clear on why his foreign policy is working. >> you've got to be clear, both to our allies and to our enemies, about where you stand and what you mean. >> but was the president clear on what happened in benghazi? john mccain will answer that, i'm sure. >> and can whales talk like people? >> of course. >> you think so? >> yeah. >> i have some audiotape. and that has the experts like yourself says yes. >> [sounds.] >> he's saying something about i'm trapped in the body of a whale? >> there you go. it might be jonah.
7:01 am
>> "fox and friends," hour two, starts right now. >> nothing that gov. romney just said is true, starting with this motion of me apologizing. >> the reason why i call it an apology tour is because you went to the middle east and you flew to egypt and saudi arabia and iraq and by the way you, skipped israel and they noticed that you skipped israel. >> he has proposed long and reckless policy. >> attacking me is not an agenda. >> i'm glad you recognize al-qaeda is a threat because a few months ago when you asked what is the biggest gio physical threat facing america and you said russia. >> i'm not going to wear rose colored classes when it comes to
7:02 am
russia. and i'm not going to give him more flexibility after the election. i congratulations him on things but we can't kill our way out of this mess. our navy is smaller now. >> you mentioned the navy and we are fewer ships can we did in 1916. governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonettes. what did you think about that? send in your e-mails. >> someone should tell the chinese that the ship things are out-of-date because they are nailing them together like christopher column because making the nina. >> there it is. it was the battle of boca. mitt romney had a high bar to hurdle, and that was it prove that he was suitable to be the
7:03 am
commander in chief. you know what? at the end of the hour and a half, he certainly did just that. >> he held his own. there were no gaffes. some people might criticize mitt romney for not being as much an the attack. we will debate that in a moment. first john roberts live for us in boca raton, florida with more on the debate. good morning, john. >> good morning. the president came here last night to boca raton loaded full of snark, tried to cut mitt romney off at the knees on everything he could, from his recent trip to israel to what some called condescending. >> at home and afraud he has proposed long and reckless
7:04 am
policies. he's praised george bush as a good economic stewart and dick cheney as someone who shows great wisdom and judgment and taking us back to those strategies that got us into this mess are not the way we are going to maintain leadership in the 21st century. >> gov. romney, wrong and reckless policies? >> i've got a policy for the future and an agenda for the future, and when it comes to our economy here at home, i know what it creates to create 12 million new jobs and rising take-home pay. what we've seen the last four years is something i don't want to see over the next four years. >> there was an awful lot of talk about domestic policy in what was a foreign policy debate. and talking about domestic policy, the auto industry bailout, the president had a major fact check faux pas what when he said he won have provided money to go through a bankruptcy. in fact when he said about the auto bankruptcy, here's what the
7:05 am
gov knorr said. quote,. >> so he did offer up some federal money. one of the biggest surprises of the night is gov. romney didn't go after the president on the libyan timeline. according to the romney people, it said the question was asked in such a way it looked like it was talk back al-qaeda and going back to libya would look like it was a force the attack. and the last time he talk about lib jacques it didn't go so well for romney. guys. >> thanks so watch. we will check back in with you. >> and something else gov. romney got wrong is when he was the governor of the great state of massachusetts, and. romney knew his record and the president of the united states did not. it's interesting as we look back. clearly the president of the united states needed a big win given the momentum currently at mitt romney's back. did he get it? well, you have to ask yourself how many people actually will
7:06 am
vote two weeks from today for president of the united states based on foreign affairs or will they vote on their pocketbook issues? probably money. >> i think the middle of it and where the president dominated was kind of surprised the governor did not come back about troops being left in iraq and the hard time frame in 2014 in afghanistan. where he thought gov. romney dug in again was china and israel. and when i thought he dug in really strongly was the auto bailout. bailout, iowa and michigan. and it's not like he didn't have answers, it wasn't like it was moving too fast for him. i think this was his strategy and that's why i can't wait to see your panel to see if they have -- known expected that. i didn't think, anyway. no one predicted it that i saw on television or radio. >> a lot people good predict there would be common ground answers because we've seen
7:07 am
romney-ryan agree with obama biden on afghanistan, for example. i think what some people were surprised about is syria. but probably why he would agree with obama on not sending in troops because obama in past debates and out on the stump have called mitt romney a warmonger. the idea that he would even in sin wait that would be boots on the ground, obama would be there saying there you go again, you are like press bush, want to go to war. whether that was the right or wrong strategy, we will have to see as the day pro grosses. >> if you watched the debate in total, mr. romney did not seem like a warmonger. he did not seem like dick cheney. >> by the way, they aren't war amongers. >> mitt romney, you know, has been -- the other side has been trying to depict him as a cartoon character and he simply was no. mitt romney let the president of the united states have it at one
7:08 am
point referring to the apology tour that the president started shortly after he came into office. there was some back and forth on that. if you missed it, we have 33 seconds of it. watch. >> nothing gov. romney just said is true. starting with this motion of me apologizing. this has been probably the biggest whopper that's been told during the course of this campaign. and every fact checker and every reporter that's looked at it. >> mr. president, the reason i call it an apology tour is because you went to the middle east and you flew to egypt and saudi arabia and to turkey and iraq, and by the way, you skipped israel, our closest friend in the region. but you went to the other nations. and by the way, they noticed that you skipped israel. >> well, it was, he did in his speech, it felt like an an apology, and it really was if you read the text. >> in 2009 when he was in france the president said instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking a partner for you to
7:09 am
seek common challenges, there's been times america has shown -- even been dismiss i have. in the meantime what mitt romney kept coming back to in the foreign policy debate is the economy. and they are rinked when you are talking about china. i think this is was mitt romney's strong point. this is where he won the first debate, focusing on the economy. that's probably what people will vote on two weeks from today. here's mitt romney and the president on the economy. >> the mantel of leadership for promoting the principles of peace has fallen to america. we didn't is it ask for it but it's anemone nor we have it. but it requires us to be strong and that begins with a strong economy here at home. unfortunately the economy is not stronger. when the president of iraq -- excuse me, of iran, ahmadinejad,
7:10 am
said our debt makes us not a great country, that's a frightening thing. we need to have as well a strong military. our military is second to none in the world. but unfortunately in no where in the world is america's influence greater today than it was four years ago. >> and mitt romney really hit the president on, you know, mr. president, you can't really go through with those sequester cuss. they will be gigantic and they will gut our military. this is what really shocked officials in washington last night. the president of the united states said regard, the sequester, it will not happen. >> he also said starting with congress, which is not true. >> and the president actually signed the sequester bill into law. >> it was his idea to put the defense on the docket. >> and shortly after the debate the spin room started spinning and david came out and said the president meant to say that the sequester should not happen. so the president has a little explaining to do regarding that. >> because his defense secretary
7:11 am
is on record saying $500 billion would be catastrophic for our defense. >> and he loses his leverage as had discussion goes forward after the election because the equester hits january 1st and now he's come out and admitted it's not going to happen, so it's probably not going to happen. all right. we have a couple minutes to discuss, how did you think bob scheifer did from cbs news as the moderator. other than giving president obama the least amount of time advantage in all the debates. president obama had just under a minute more than mitt romney. >> 41 seconds. >> almost even. and if you look at the interruptedness chart you will see romney was interrupted 8 times and president obama six. so far different from the other debates when, for example, paul ryan was interrupted way more times than joe biden, by joe biden himself and also the moderator. >> martha raditz. let's listen.
7:12 am
>> on the path to a nuclear weapon. >> we will get to that but let's give the president a chance. >> governor, here is one thing -- >> let him speak. >> here is one thing i learned at commander in chief. >> no where in the world is america's influence greater today than it was four years ago. >> you are going to get a chance to respond to that because that's a perfect seque into our next segment. let's go, and that leads us, this takes us right to the next segment, governor. america's longest war, afghanistan and pakistan. >> bob, governor -- >> but you can't have the president just lay out a whole series items without giving me a chance to respond. >> with respect, sir, you laid out quite a program there. >> okay. so bob scheifer did a pretty good job, for the most part. he did commit one gaffe, though, at one point h@ referred to obama as bin laden. suddenly candy crowley looked like she was off the hook. but a slip of the tongue. it happens. >> a lot of people have made that unfortunate error at the
7:13 am
same time. all right. we talk about the interrupting times, 8 versus 6. let us know what you thought about that. >> meanwhile last night the president appeared proud of his foreign policy. >> you've got to be clear, both to our allies and our enemies, about where you stand and what you mean. >> what about what happened in libya? senator john mccain reacts next. >> then, now you see him, now you don't. one college erases the crosses off of their christian football fan shirts. why did they do that? we will tell you. ♪ mike rowe here at a ford dealer with a little q&a for fiona. tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford dealer. who has 11 major brands to choose from? your ford dealer.

7:18 am
agenda. attacking me is not talking about how we are going to dole with the challenges that exist in the middle east and take advantage of the opportunity there and stem the tied of this violence. >> here's one thing i've learned as commander in chief. you have to be clear, both to our allies and to our enemies, about where you stand and what you mean. >> but has president obama been clear about what's happened in libya? senator john mccain joins us. senator first off, were you surprised gov. romney did not drill down on the libya debacle? >> well, i think in my view it probably would have been something that was on the agenda, but i you think also that mitt romney did the job that he needed to do and that was to show the american people that he has the qualities necessary to be the commander in chief. whereas the president again had his snarky, cheap shot remarks that are both nonpresidential and not likable.
7:19 am
>> senator, you are the only person in the world that's ever been across a presidential debate stage from the president. and you said during the course of the 90 minutes he told a number of whoppers. >> one to start with is in business of leaving a residual force in iraq. they always planned on it but because of their lack of any influence there, that failed. but more importantly, iraq is unraveling. al-qaida, the numbers have doubled. al-qaida is on the resurgence throughout the middle east. anybody will tell you that, whether it be in mali, northern mali where they have taken over and all across northern africa and iraq the violence is way up. we won the war and lost the peace. >> were you surprised he agreed so much with the president' policy in syria, for the most part iran, iraq, afghanistan? >> i don't think he agreed with about iran.
7:20 am
he said mitt romney made it very clear that we are weaker than we were four years ago. there's no doubt about that. by the way, this line about horses and swords, whatever it was, that's just snarky. that's just snarky. i every did that to the community organizer about his experience back in 2008. maybe i should have. but the point is -- although i never would have. but the point is his ridicule of mitt romney was both unpresidential and, frankly, in my view unacceptable. but the fact is that the president tried to act like, for example, with israel. our relations with israel have not been worse since i don't know how long. but the fact is that i think that mitt romney showed the american people that he's fully qualified to lead. and this president is clearly not. >> all right. senator john mccain joining us from the debate site in boca raton. we know you have a busy morning. thanks for dropping by. >> thanks for having me on.

7:26 am
those details. the study lincolns house to go unemployment? >> yes, it does. it's a rather unique study. it lincolnings the housing situation and the unemployment situation in 900 counties around the country and the conclusion is in two-thirds of those counties, 580 out of 919 are worse off now than we were four years ago. again, that's in terms of housing, home prices, foreclosure activity and the unemployment rate and the jobless rate in those counties. we are worse off in two-thirds of the country. that's the conclusion. >> where is the trend? >> well, the trend in housing, if you look strictly at housing, a very, very modest up trend for home prices and the number of home sales. if you just talk housing and isolation, you can make the point that maybe we are coming back just a also. but when you mix in housing and unemployment, and you look across the entire country, it's a very different picture. i thought i was watching a debate on the economy last night. he brought it all the way back to that constantly and mitt
7:27 am
romney always made that point. you can't have a strong foreign policy if you have a weak economy back home. this new study provides for evidence that we really do have widespread weakness in two fundamental areas of the economy, housing and unemployment. >> it's interesting because i think if you look at the interest of the voter when they go to vote two weeks from today, do you think that they will be voting on foreign policy or they will be voting on the economy? >> i think they will be voting on economy. how do you feel? what about your wallet? how do you feel financially? is this the america that we are used to? vigorous, dynamic, expanding and pros prosperous. and will people come away with a distinct impression of the new foreign policy or i don't think they will. i think they will come away with image. who handled themselves like a president. who had the better image? i think that's the people come away from the third and final debate.
7:28 am

7:33 am
meanwhile, the big question this morning is who won? we are joined by former manager of the howard dean campaign, joe trippi. he must be tired. i watched him late last night. also a national campaign director for 1994, the reagan-bush campaign, edmonds rollins, and al d'amato. senator, let's start but. you feel that mr. romney may have dropped the ball by not going after the president and his coverup of what happened in libya? >> no doubt in my mind. here you have the cia station chief one day after the attack sending a cable to headquarters at langly saying that this was an organized attack. and yet within a week you have our u.n. ambassador saying that it wasn't. that information went to the national security people. the president's people had it. and yet you have your u.n.
7:34 am
ambassador trying to cover it up? this is ridiculous. the next thing we are going to see is the drone attack in libya. i wouldn't put anything past these guys, claim that they have got the people who are responsible for that attack. watch out, america. this is the next thing i think you will see from this administration. >>ed, last night we had the current commander in chief sitting across from a guy who would like his job. if you were pitching him, what would you tell him him and it he deliver? >> i agreed with the president we could have been more aggressive on the libya thing but the end of the day the vast majority of americans care about the economy. once he push it back to the economy he was much stronger than the president. the president was very defensive, very snarlly. obviously he has a lot to defend. i don't think there's a great inconsistency historically between the republicans and democrats on foreign policy so think there were big issues.
7:35 am
the question is who is the better leader and romney came off very well. >> and a lot of people have said in the last twelve hours or so, whenever it came back to economic issues, here's mr. romney on a balanced budget from last night. >> i'll get us on track to a balanced budget. the president's path will mean continuing decline in take-home pay. i want to make sure our take-home pay turns around and starts to grow. i want to make sure we get people off of food stamps not by cutting the program but by getting them good jobs. i was in a state where the legislature was 87% democrat. i learned to get along. we have to do that in washington. washington is broken. i know what it takes to get this country back and we will work with good democrats and good republicans to do that. >> okay. joe, how did he do on that? >> every time he got to the economy, that's his strong suit obviously. but look, i agree with ed, the one thing about all of the
7:36 am
debates was he became the plausible candidate, a plausible president. he rose to the equal level of standing, i think in demeanor and his command of the issues where people could see him as president of the united states. but then i agree with d'amato. you know, he was -- it was-like he was sitting on his lead or something. he didn't want to risk going, overreaching and looking reckless and like some of the things that the president was setting out as a trap to try to capture him. he avoided the traps, but i'm not sure he was aggressive enough to win the debate. >> ed, no doubt about it, the president of the united states tried to get mr. romney into a fight and romney didn't take the bait. >> the fight didn't work well for romney when they did it a few weeks ago at hofstra. you want to be respectful to the president and the president had to defend a record that's kind
7:37 am
of mediocre, and at the end of the day he was not particularly forthcoming. he was talking about he had nothing to do with the sequester which obviously his own omb director was the architect of it. they quickly had to go out and take that back. and his little snarly remark about not knowing the difference between a bayonet and a submarine. he clearly didn't know that four years ago. the end of the day he didn't come off as well as he should have as commander in chief. >> the current commander in chief let mr. romney try to have it and tried to portray him as some sort of a cartoon. here he is alongside mr. romney, who reminded the president that attack me is not an agenda, mr. president. >> what we need to do with respect to the middle east is strong, steady leadership, not wrong and reckless leadership that is all over the map. >> attack me is not an agenda. attacking me is not talking about how we are going to do with the challenges that exist
7:38 am
in the middle east and take advantage of the opportunity there and stem the tied of this violence. >> all right. senator d'amato? >> he was great on that. he was absolutely great and he was right. because the president continually attacked him and made false charges. but i wish on foreign policy he would have said mr. president, you couldn't find time to meet with our most important ally in that region of the country, bb netanyahu, when he came to new york and you could do to tv shows and interviews but you couldn't meet with him? what kind of signal does that send to the arabic community? that would have been a haymaker. >> did he do anything to reverse the momentum, ed? that's what he needed to do because right now it's going to mit's favor. >> i still think it's in mit's favor. most people don't care about foreign policy because it's a crisis area the next four years. i think most people care about the economy and pitt got back on
7:39 am
that shalla. clearly there's a big difference between the president and mitt romney on the economic policies. >> joe down in bobbia, you get the -- in gboca, you get the final word. >> i agreed with ed that i don't think it had the effect the first one did. i do think the president won it but i don't think it will change the dynamics of the race. this is going to be very, very close. the last 14 days all the way to the wire. and now they are back to the swing states and it's all about getting out their vote. i think romney did well enough last night to continue to be the alternative president as people are making that decision. >> joe, i disagree. i think last night's debate had a gigantic impact. i would imagined to bayonet sales are going to absolutely skyrocket. you just watch. joe and ed and al. >> thank you very much. >> 20 minutes before the top of the hour. let's do the headlines. >> can drinking a can of monster

8:04 am
to egypt and you to saudi arabia and to turkey and iraq. by the way, you skipped israel our closest friend in the region, but you went to the other nations. by the way, they noticed you skipped israel. >> both home and abroad he has proposed broad and reckless policies. >> attacking me is not an agenda. >> i am glad you recognize al-qaeda is a threat. a few months ago you asked what is the biggest threat you said russia. >> i'm not going to wear rose colored glasses to him or putin. i congratulate you taking out osama bin laden but we can't kill our way out of this mess. our navy is smaller than any time since 1917. >> we have fewer ships than 1916. but governor we also have fewer horses and bayonets.
8:05 am
>> brian: what do you think of that comment, do you think it was a good zinger? >> i wanted to impale myself on a bayonet. this is the best we can do. the command are in chief of the u.s. military and take something on on substantive issues but that was beneath the president. i know these folks on left wing blogs he really stuck to it romney on that. meanwhile, the substantive question remains. why did president obama not take all the time that he has had over the last year to avoid these drastic cuts that are kicking in. he is allowing it to happen despite the fact he said this will not happen. >> the whole idea, ship is outdated.
8:06 am
we have oceans and water, somebody should tell china to stop building ships. >> first of all i believe the marines use bayonets. they still have bayonets. again, these constructions coming out of the president's mouth last night. they are quicky hits for untrained ear. obama scored some real points there. in the end mitt romney was appealing to small slice of america that are still undecided. people are maybe in the middle or weary of war. they want to make sure that mitt romney is not some saber rattling, bayonet waving warmonger. i think last night those people didn't see anything that frightened them. maybe they want to see mitt romney hit harder but in those clips you played especially,
8:07 am
romney came across i thought very mature, very reasoned and actually, didn't go in for the easy hits on the president he really could have taken. >> do you agree with that? >> i'm never going to be satisfied from my perspective. i wanted mitt romney right off to the bat to clarify this libya thinking for the american people. i'm not going to be satisfied. i'm kind of a little obsessed with the issue. the last debate left it unclear. nevertheless, even if mitt romney didn't do what a lot of us wanted him to do on question on libya, overall how he came across, again with more mature, more reason and again making the case for why america must remain strong in the world and how he will proceed as commander in chief to ensure that happens. if he stayed with the debate that is what you came across with. >> brian: from the get-go of the
8:08 am
administration, one of the thing the president has done, we have talked about it on this program with you, he has been abroad, he hased apologized for the united states. mitt romney let him have it last night. >> first of all, israel is a true friend, it is our greatest ally in the region. if israel is attacked, america will stand with israel. i've made that clear throughout my presidency. >> more president the reason i call it an apology tour is because you went to the middle east and you flew to egypt and saudi arabia and to turkey and iraq. by the way, you skipped israel, our closeest friend in the region but you went to the other nations. by the way, they noticed you skipped israel. >> steve: plus he went on the view a few weeks ago rather than talk to netanyahu. mr. obama disagreed with him. we'll play a clip what he said
8:09 am
in 2009. >> instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where america showed arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive. >> steve: that arrogant america, does it sound like an apology tour to you? >> that is one of my favorite clips from barack obama. that is tie for them to make profits, it's classic obama. it's great to hear him talk about arrogance. i don't know. to look at, i called him the smirk, but i looked at obama is smirking the entire debate. has a sneering look toward mitt romney. to say that he did not take a more apologetic tone especially in the first two years of this past term, it doesn't even past the straight face test. he wanted to wish all of that
8:10 am
away. i think, again, he wanted you to think obama that he was like ronald reagan had nothing on him. he was one moment from more gorbachev tear down this wall line. he didn't bring american exceptionalism could be said in the same paragraph, the british and greek believe in their exceptionalism. i thought mitt romney coming back with that recitation of it. i'm tweeting like, save the arrogance line. 20 seconds after that, i thought it was a great moment for mitt romney. >> gretchen: some people could argue that he brought it babbling to the auto bailout. he is talking about michigan and florida and then you could argue
8:11 am
that president obama really eager, some say desperate for the female vote. listen to this. >> we do have to make sure that we are protecting religious minorities because these countries can't develop is all develop. these countries can't develop if young women are not given the education they need. whether dealing with counterterrorism, whether supporting democracy. whether supporting women's rights or religious minorities. they can say that the president of the united states and the united states of america has stood on the right side of history. >> brian: i don't think that region is doing great by women. >> america's influence in the world has shrunk over the past four years. it's been a deliberate strategy to hang back and religious minorities in the middle east have been crying out for
8:12 am
american leadership. christian priests, catholic parishioners, not only exploded maimed and killed in iraq but across the middle east in parts of africa. christianity is under assault. jews living in traditional jewish home lands feel like every day they are out there risking their lives. it's not for the president on to say that, but in fact whether it's hillary clinton or he himself there has been precious little done to protect those religious minorities. instead we bent over backwards to protect those who may be more politically correct religious any on are not of the united states. >> laura ingraham joins us today. her big radio show kicks off in 45 minutes from right now. >> great to see you guys. >> steve: her buddy bill

>> brian: who came out on the approach? did it catch the obama camp by surprise? joining is bob burnett and debated coach. he has prepped candidates for last nine presidential elections and does various work in full disclosure, does my sitcom work. bob, were you surprised, was obama camp surprised by the tact used by the romney camp? >> good morning. i had two overwhelming reactions. first the one you pointed out. that governor romney on the seven or eight foreign policy, national defense issues that were brought up during the debate by the moderator, he embraced president obama. i think that was interesting because, of course, what you want to try to do if you are running for president is to draw a contrast. he tried to draw similarities.
8:19 am
i think over the next two or three days that will be to his detriment. a lot of policies he spoke to last night are dramatically different from what he said in the primaries and what he said three weeks ago. i think some of the good fact checkers are going to be looking what he said last night versus what he has been saying. what does that mean? that means there is a lot of shakiness. there is a lot of changing of positions. in the foreign policy and defense area, you have to be strong and resolute which doesn't mean you can evolve in your thinking but you have to send clear signals to friends and foes alike. that kind of changing could be to his detriment. >> brian: even though most of the people, foreign policy in this election cycle is not going to be that big of a deal? >> it's never proven to be the decisive issue, but i think that it's very important given the
8:20 am
dangerous world that we live in. both candidates said, serious problems with terrorism around the country, serious problems with people that wish us ill. people will look at jobs and economy and i'm worried about that from the point of view from my candidate. i think they will be make sure to vote for a steady and strong leader. i think that was probably shown last night. >> brian: bob, thanks so much for your private perspective. -- your perspective. bob barr net, thanks so much. >> brian: coming up next, it's supposed to give you energy and supposed to give you a bounce si step but popular drink is coming with an unexpected warning. it could kill you. billow o'reilly making a bold prediction. >> governor romney's momentum is almost everywhere, and if he wins tonight, she likely to be

8:25 am
it was most boring debate i have ever seen. none of them scored any points on the other. everybody at the home were the losers. we didn't get any nig out of that. did any of you three learn anything about the world or your country? >> it was pretty much the talking points we've heard all along. >> bill: so fox and friends didn't learn anything. i asked this question earlier, nobody learned anything. it was boring. >> what do you think the momentum. romney has momentum? >> here why i think romney didn't engage on libya and didn't engage on anything. he he wants the women to vote for him. he calculated that i'm going to be kind of statesman, presidential non-confrontational guy. we'll let be obama the
8:26 am
confrontational guy and women will like me better and vote for me more. i think that is what he was doing. >> gretchen: that is interesting because one of the polls that came out after specifically with women, it was 50/50 split. >> women don't like confrontation. romney needs women. his internal polling shows that. believe that is why he didn't do anything. romney didn't do anything. nothing. look, libya is teed upright here. schieffer didn't ask about libya he gave the opportunities to jump in. you don't give them opportunities to do anything. your job is to get information so the american people know who the best president is going to be. you could. >> no, no. >> you say to the president of the united states, you screwed this up. i don't know what happened there. please explain this to me.
8:27 am
>> we get mitt romney to tell the president screwed up, not the moderator. >> these guys aren't going to ask penetrating questions, why do we have them? >> gretchen: if schieffer didn't ask a question on libya, he should retire. >> but he was a wishy-washy questions. >> but then it's up to the candidates to send it out of the park then? >> in order rater strategy should be to get as much information as possible. not to ask wishy-washy questions. that is all three of them did. >> i agree with you except for libya. libya is such an open question, if you want to be the president you should turn to the guy, i can't believe you said one thing and then went on a campaign trip. you let your ambassador go there
8:28 am
five days later. >> romney doesn't want to be confrontational. he doesn't want to be confrontational. now, is it a mistake, i think so, but i could be wrong. romney could get more women to vote for him and that do put him over the top. his calculation might work. >> steve: it may or may have been a mistake but does it change anything? >> no. i should amend that. it might change how many women vote for romney. >> gretchen: i don't think it makes a difference? >> but for the american public, which man is better for the country. >> gretchen: i don't know if you can put women in a box? >> i am not putting women in a box. i was telling you romney's calculation. if it were me, obama would be a puddle after i got through with
8:29 am
him. >> i have a huge. when i saw the intensity of obama for 90 minutes he won't bray break that stare, i think his internal polls show he is in trouble? >> maybe. certainly the momentum was on romney's side but obama wanted to prove one thing, that romney is a poser. that obama wanted to prove. he doesn't know what he doing and he changes his opinion every hour. you have to be confrontational. romney could have parried that by saying, this isn't incompetence in libya. we don't know what happened in month and a half. you have to explain it. >> steve: before you go, you have to telling us about "killing kenedy". it's soaring up the charts. >> it's number one i think. >> we sold 500,000 copies in two weeks.

8:47 am
aircraft carriers. we have ships that go underwater nuclear submarines. it's not a game of battleship. it's what our capabilities are. >> clearly he was wrong with bbayonets. we heard that all night and morning. we're going to see a deacon instruction of what the president said over the next two days, he said china is our adversary. i have never heard him say that. let's watch words and performance on israel. what he said last night and what he is doing in terms of iran. at the same time governor romney seemed reasonable. he seemed to be wanting to take a reasonable position in the world while maintaining strength and trying to appeal some more of the women that were watching the debate last night. president engaged in in a death skare all night.

it reminded curb your enthusiasm. larry david looks at his detractors sometimes with that kind of death stare. looking into their eyes or looking -- i had a school teacher that used to look at the kids for life. it's a death stare, trying to eke out the truth. there he is. larry and the president. >> not necessarily the president's friend. they don't like each other. but more romney has a better poker face. >> i have no idea why. that is not a president obama i have ever seen. >> peter johnson, thank you very much. >> meanwhile, let's go out in the hall. >> gretchen: some republicans upset that mitt romney did not take that libya question first off and hit out of the park. i'm going to ask a forget coach whether it was good strategy or not.

>>. >> gretchen: first question during last night's debate was about libya and questions how the white house responded to that. >> it was an attempt to mislead people about really happened. governor romney you said this was an example of an american policy in the middle east that is unraveling before our very eyes. >> with the arab spring came
8:53 am
great deal of hope. there would be a change toward moderation and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women and public life and economic life in the middle east. instead, we've seen in nation after nation a number of disturbing events. >> gretchen: you can see governor romney's answer stopped short of slamming the administration at all. was this a missed opportunity. let's ask fred o'donnell. >> i think it was a good strategy. both men played the debate last night like the president was the underdog. president was clearly more aggressive which is probably why he got perceived as winning the debate, but in the end romney wins the war because he had a such a decisive victory in the first debate. why get in back and forth over benghazi when the election is about the economy. >> gretchen: i think a lot of republicans and democrats were stunned at his answer. it was obvious he was not going
8:54 am
to go there. so many republicans had been out in the last couple days talking about the new information and potentially negative news for this white house. why didn't romney go after it? >> in the last debate that exchange hadn't gun well for the governor. this is an economic election. leave that litigation for congress and for romney presidency as opposed to doing it in a debate where you are trying to win voters. bottom line for this debate was, governor romney had to pass the commander in chief test. he has the mettle to handle the job, when hillary clinton said when the phone rings at 3:00 a.m. he passed had a test and why get about a in the back and forth. it was clear from the beginning, the strategy was an appeal to the women voters. purpose of my foreign policy is peace. >> gretchen: and also hug the president. that was the word that was going
8:55 am
around last night when he said things like this. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden and going after the leadership in al-qaeda. we can't kill our way out of this mess. >> gretchen: all right. in one way he is congratulating the president, embracing his policies in the middle east to a certain extent. also getting in the dig, right? >> i would describe this hugging in the depths. when he is hugging him on some of these policies, he congratulated the president for taking out osama bin laden and he ed said he want kill our way out of this mess. he was drawing a division in terms of foreign policy and congratulating the president making it seem like there are essential core differences that the president can point to and say, here is differences between us. you are justified to keep me in commander in chief. >> gretchen: so with all your debate coaching experience, how do you rate this debate? >> i don't think it was terribly
8:56 am
exciting debate. i don't think thi it will have a huge impact on the election. narrative was set. governor romney had a tremendous amount of momentum coming out of the first debate. president needed a knock out blow last night. what happened governor romney played rope-a-dope in hugging the president. wouldn't give him the opportunity. >> gretchen: do you go on vacation since no more debates? >> i wish. >> gretchen: it's great hearing your analysis pre-debate and post. >> more fox and friends two minutes away. ♪ ♪ i'm thinking you are that girl ♪ ♪ it's fine by me ♪ if you never leave ♪ and you live forever
