5:00 pm
we'll do it next weekend live. election night on fbn. nonstop. no b.s. at all. >> eric: hello, everyone. fox news alert. a.p. is reporting senate majority leader harry reid has been in an accident, taken to the hospital. the accident occurred in las vegas earlier in afternoon. we'll keep you informed of his condition as we know. we've also got breaking news on benghazi tonight. the fox news exclusive, very concerning information. we'll bring all of that to you later. but first, 11 days left to vet two choices for president. 11 days left before we decide who will oversee the economy and security and well-being for the next four years by a wide margin. the most important issue to every group polled says the economy and jobs is the number one issue to americans. that in mind, let's take a look at the two candidate, what they're doing today. governor romney has been delivering a major economic address to voters in iowa.
5:01 pm
>> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment. that can bring america's family to certainty, that the future will be better than the past. >> eric: president obama on the other hand, has a different agenda. today he is hanging out with mtv. look, it doesn't matter what you think of romney. what matters is this. do you really want four more years of obamanomics? check out the latest poll from abc/"washington post." when asked who do you trust more to hand the economy? romney 45 #%. president obama 43%. nine-point difference is huge. we have 11 days to decide who will lead the great republic out of the economic slump or in. ask yourself do i want to guy with job creation all over his resume, or the guy who spends his time with leno, letterman, jon stewart, pimp with the limp and mtv? i don't think, today was an
5:02 pm
unbelievable look in two candidates. >> dana: traditionally the weekend before the last weekend before the eselection candidates make closing arguments. president obama today, i would have gone to mtv if i were in their shoes as well, because i don't think there is anything that president obama can do at this point, 11 days out to convince people that he has done a great job on the economy. he has not run on his record up to now. he is not going to start. they need to get the youth vote out. the youth vote that he carried handily in 2008 are not there in 2012. if i were in chicago and i woke up and saw that romney beat obama in every poll, when it comes to the economy, i would be nervous, even in the battleground state obama seems to be up one or two, these economic numbers will probably slump them on election day. >> greg: i think appearing on mtv is a great move for president obama because at the hard-hitting questions will be
5:03 pm
faced with journalists who think libya is a swedish folk singer. so there won't be questions about that. questions like who is your favorite avengeer? this is really important. but i got to say also thank god that during his economic malaise, president obama focused on the important stuff like childhood obesity, birth control, electric cars. this administration is so lost right now. they need to gps to find their own butt. >> eric: i hope that the most pressing question comes out, when he speaks to mtv. >> andrea: the same one that bill clinton got. boxers or briefs? you newhen you go to mtv you get to crux of the issues. >> greg: pretend serious questions. like this job must be really difficult for you. sound smart and sensitive. >> andrea: the problem is over half of youth today, college graduates are unemploy. so he can talk about the environment and the other issues but the candidates, are sitting in the parents'
5:04 pm
basement watching him on a laptop as paul ryan said looking at faded posters. visual is important. romney giving a thoughtful speech. barack obama stel trying to gen up his base. he hasn't talked about the economy. why hasn't he? why didn't he still keep a message of hope and talk about the next four years? why did he wait until this week to roll out an agenda for his second term? i get he runs from the record but he is running from economy, too. >> bob: the mtv audjens the audience to go to. it's about targeting. get out the vote. he doesn't have it in full. also keep in mind there will be 10 million more edgable voters available in 2012 than there were in 2008. most of them are young voters. this is the right place to go. better here than some charlie rose or some other late night
5:05 pm
show. by the way, your open was as much as a romney pitch as i've heard from you. >> eric: nothing to do with romney. >> bob: nothing? >> eric: nothing to do with romney. do you want four years of obamanomics. pull? pull up the next graphic i put together. people on disability. there are now record number of disability on -- number of people on disability. 8 million americans went on disability. if you combine it with the people, americans unemploy, 20 million people. divide it by the workforce. 15%. >> dana: well, if people need to be on disability, the government needs to be there to help them. our problem is people left the workforce in droves. the underemployment. if you want a full-time job and you could only get a part-time job. if you got so discouraged that you left the workplace anyway. we don't have enough people working. enough years to take care of people that might legitimately need disability funding. or food stamps, whatever it might be. we do not have enough people.
5:06 pm
aging population. no economic plan to get it. today the economic growth number comes out for the last quarter, it's 2%. that's measly. barely keeps up with the population growth. >> eric: take out the government spending. >> dana: great point. >> eric: all got spending, zero. >> bob: wait. >> eric: just defense spending, it's 1.7%. the question is, bob, did they jack up government spending in the quarter to make the quarter -- >> dana: to cut government spending in january when president obama says seguess tration -- i'm not saying that the unemployment is because of the baby boomers. i have checked it several times. there is a little effect. but mainly the reason the unemployment rate continues to be at 7.9% and underemployment higher than that is because people that want to find jobs cannot find jobs.
5:07 pm
>> greg: obama thought he could stem the rising tide of the economy. he was interested in the emore face crud called social change. you can't indulge in liberal fantasies without a robust economy. that is the t irony for socialist folly. to expand socialist folly, you need capitalism first to prosper so you can have the worthless crap that you indulge -- >> eric: run out of other people's money. >> greg: to fail you have to be successful first. the last thing we should do with foltering economy and can't pay for it. >> andrea: that is the first thing he did. he had good will and capital. he won decisively. that is where he went. this is baffling to me. i get why he would go after the youth vote. most politicians try and speak to you, they hope you were born yesterday. in the case of president obama
5:08 pm
his audience really was born yesterday. i don't know if they will turn out. if you look at the numbers, every demographic is down and the enthusiasm is way down. again, trying to galvanize the base, you know better than anybody. ten days sout not a good sign. he should already have them in his corner. romney is reaching right through the middle and doing that. >> bob: romney peaked and obama has room to move. the myth of romney momentum is just that, a myth. >> dana: president bam become stalled at first debate. he has been treading water since. >> eric: put up the "washington post" poll to show who you would vote for. 11 days left. president obama cannot get above 47%. that has to be disturbing to you. >> bob: it is if you take one poll. but i think he has a 47% base.
5:09 pm
the other thing is gallup came out and for the first time, obama favoritability job rating is above 50%. >> dana: still romney/obama 51/45 p.c. >> greg: who cares if the economy is dead if you have a cool president? that's what mtv is about. saying this guy is great. he can do a mean a green impersonation. isn't that more important than the fact that you are unemployed and living at home? if you think obama can handle the economy you think joan crawford was great with kids. >> bob: i get that. >> greg: i was going to do a sandusky joke and thought not. >> eric: put up the last graphic. stunning. $2 million campaign. >> andrea: $2 billion an the president says this is disgusting to him. he is the one that turned away public funds. i would say, folks, $26 every
5:10 pm
second. >> bob: he turned it down in the last three elections. >> andrea: bob, remember he made the commitment and backed off it first. >> eric: today, he said this is crazy. how could i spend $1 billion. for the second time. >> bob: that doesn't include the pacs. >> dana: the $1 billion, he might mess stuff up like solyndra, maybe, the return on investment. if i were romney i would have gone to cmt, country music television and done an interrue there. that actually would have -- talk about enthusiasm. sometimes he is there. >> dana: you stand outside there -- >> greg: with the binoculars in a tree. >> dana: how do you know that. >> eric: telling me we have great news. harry reid is in stable condition, still in hospital but in stable condition. he will be okay. leave it there. coming up, stunning new development on the deadly attack on consulate in lib
