1:02 pm
hand as they sang "we shall overcome." a song that became the signature song during the struggle. as the song echoed throughout the site, they drew cheers as they were seeing entering the monument, accompanied by the chin of dr. king. president obama delivered an address that praised an address that praised dr. king and those that marched with him. >> as tough as times as tough are, i know there are better days ahead. i know because of the manpower over us, i know that because all he and his generation endured, we are here today in a country that is dedicated a monument to that legacy. >> reporter: and gregg you heard that many people were applauding the president all throughout the crowd. there were people chanting four
1:03 pm
more years and actually hearing what the president had to say. they were appreciated his comments today about the legacy of dr. king. >> gregg: what happens next? what are people proposing to do to fulfill dr. kig's dream. >> reporter: that is a fundamental question. you have some people out there basically stating they need instead of occupying wall street occupy the dream. one gentleman from the audience told me it's time for people to start doing the right thing to help improve their community, their state and nation. the son of dr. king, martin luther king iii said we must celebrate his ideals. jesse jackson agreed with that and told me so. >> how far have we come now in pursuing the dream? >> the dream keeps expanding. the end of poverty and disease it keeps growing because fewer have more and more and more and
1:04 pm
more have less and legs. >> reporter: that is something that people discussed. rich can't get any rich every and poor can't get any poorer. if dr. king were alive today he would be puting for social and racial justice but economic parity. >> gregg: kelly, thanks. >> heather: president obama is preparing to embark on a bus tour in an effort to sell his jobs plan to the american public. he begins his journey tomorrow morning. speeches are set in north carolina and also in southern virginia. steve centani joins us with more. what is he hoping to accomplish on this up coming bus tour? >> he will combine politics with policy. he travels through virginia, north carolina hoping to hang on to those two red states he managed to win four years ago. he'll be pushing a jobs bill
1:05 pm
that the senate rejected and republicans said is just more stimulus spending. democrats fired back at the republican plan. >> so-called republican jobs bill would allow corporate america write their own rules again. it's been analyzed they would create no jobs now. there isn't a certainty it would create any jobs at all. >> reporter: the administration will reintroduce the jobs bill piece by piece in congress. >> heather: but the deadline, fast approaching for the super committee to come up with a deficit cutting plan. what is the outlook for that. >> reporter: one leading republican, eric cantor on fox news sunday. >> i do think that the joint committee is going to be successful in reaching the goal at least $1.2 trillion in cuts

and senator biden to the vice president's credit. it was that committee that actually produced a blueprint that could form the basis of $1.2 trillion. >> are you confident they will make a deal? >> we can't fail. there has to be a success. >> reporter: and that is literally true. failure to reach an agreement would trigger drastic cuts in defense spending and domestic spending. >> gregg: let's talk about the anti-wall street sentiment. it's inspiring dozens of demonstrations around the u.s. in new york, thousands of protestors taking their message on foot marching from the financial district all the way to times square just around the corner from fox news. the protests and people behind bars and sending two police
1:07 pm
officers to the hospital. >> chicago's grant park the site of another rally against what protestors see as corporate greed. nearly 200 people were arrested early this morning. police say they refuse to leave the park after it closed late last night. >> president obama turning up the heat on iran pressing u.n. inspectors to release classified information showing the islamic republic is producing nuclear weapons. "new york times" is reporting to further isolated iran, president obama wants the u.n. to release classified intel to prove that they are experiment go with nuclear weapons something that experts say would not be good. >> everything is wrong today with iran, the largest financial proponent of terrorism once they
1:08 pm
get nuclear weapons and they are very close to this point. >> it might be a smart move because sanctions don't appear to be the right way to go. >> i don't think the sanctions have been as complete as they should be. i wish they had sanctions the central bank of iran. that would affect oil and that is why they didn't do it. that makes a big difference. >> reporter: so she says oil might be part of the equation. the "new york times" article says another variable is in sections. the head of the iai started to go ahead because they didn't want inspectors to be banned from iran. they have made it clear in the wake of the terror plot planned by their government, isolation is important. >> this president has been very focused on holding iranian behavior that is clearly seen by
1:09 pm
other nations around the world. that enables us to work cooperatively with our international partners to isolate and put pressure on iran in a way that has never been achieved before. >> reporter: another reason they are hesitant for it to become public, after weapons of mass destruction in 2003 our credibility might be shot. >> heather: peter doocy, thanks. >> gregg: right now in libya, fighters looting moammar khadafy's hometown of surte while facing fierce resistance. in tripoli they are using bulldozers to tear down a wall surrounding the main compound viewed as symbolic part of his rule. that is where we find david piper streaming from tripoli. >> they are continuing to pound khadafy's followers in the center of surte with artillery

1:11 pm
dprearms they could be suspended from the organization. and military troops being send to uganda. the president clarifying it's better to call them personnel adding it was wrong for the u.s. to say it was sending troops to find the lord's resistance army. that is a guerrilla group and brutal leader. instead americans will be gathering intelligence. president obama says he is dispatching about 100 special ops forces to advise in the fight against the uganda president. >> heather: efforts in thailand, the country is reeling from the worst floods to hit in decades. nearly 300 people have died since rains lashed thailand. earlier today, they boarded helicopters in bangkok for an aerial view of the widespread damage. >> our hearts and thoughts and
1:12 pm
prayers to go out to the thai people who endure this situation. with this flight we will be able to better work with the thai military and get a better sense what they would request and they would ask from the u.s. and u.s. government so we could determine how best to pursue. >> heather: is any relief in sight? maria has more. >> unfortunately for thailand we are expecting more thunderstorms over the next several days. it is normal to get some activity out there this time of year and for the past several months because of monsoon season which is forecast to head through early november. hopefully things will wind down as the monsoon season begins to wind down. another area across the u.s. that has been dealing with flooding is the northeast. we're getting more rain out there. a lot of moisture being picked
1:13 pm
up off the lakes and that is producing activity across upstate new york and northern pennsylvania. we're going to see the storms moving through the region. be very careful if you are driving, along the freeways. heavy downpours. it was raining in the same area yesterday and there is a new storm system we'll be tracking as we head into next week. so more potential rain across the northeast. another area, is south florida. we've had a heavy rain has been falling across the keys and miami dealt with heavy rain and forecast is to continue as we head in the next two days. unfortunately we'll have few more inches of rain, ground is already saturated that has been lingering around the region. take a look at future radar, showers will push out the northeast. here is a look at the new storm system that will take place in ohio and indiana, ahead of it a
1:14 pm
lot of tropical moisture being pumped into florida and eastern portions of the carolinas. big story with the storm system, not only the rain but a big cooldown behind it. areas that have been dealing with warm air will continue to do so tomorrow, texas, oklahoma and memphis, tennessee. this storm system will bring in cooler air and by mid-week, many could look at a drop of temperatures by as much at 20 degrees. >> heather: that is good. it is fall. thank you very much. >> gregg: i want to try to get back to david piper streaming live from tripoli. bring us up to date on what is happening? >> reporter: revolutionary fighters are still struggling to take khadafy's hometown of surte. they have been pounding them with artillery for three days
1:15 pm
but they haven't managed to break through. they changed tactics because they were finding large amounts of casualties and concerns about friendly fire from misurata and benghazi brigades pushed in. national council has said once it falls they will say that libya is totally liberated and push on towards elections, but, of course, there is one other khadafy stronghold still holding up. that is about 19 miles southeast of here in tripoli and there has been fierce fighting there today. it doesn't seem that one is going to fall anytime soon. also today, revolutionary fighters begin tearing down khadafy's stronghold in the center of tripoli. for many years, of course, libyans could not go into that compound. it was very much off-limits with guards station order the fops of those large walls there.
1:16 pm
so i understand they want to turn it into a market but very much a change of scenes here. >> heather: coming up, this the question. this is your topic. lawmakers from across the aisle they say enough is enough. so deep in the whole, two senators they wanted know why are we still sending hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to china. >> gregg: i bet you didn't know we were doing it. >> and testing themselves against some very raging bulls. just one phillips' colon health probiotic cap a day

1:31 pm
backpack. it now seems the diapers had been there longer than the two weeks she has been missing and not connected. kansas city police were called to the house by a passerby who found the diapers and contacted authorities. >> as you know we were called here because somebody found diapers in the abandoned house. you will see the crime scene vans. we're going to do it right. based on our initial observations it's nothing we are getting excited about. >> julie: with no promising leads so far, the governor has stepped in and sent 25 members of the national guard to kansas city to help in the search. they are combing the woods to make sure they survey every single square mile. an anonymous donor has chipped in posting a $100,000 reward for information that either leads to the safe return of the baby or to the conviction of anyone involved in her disappearance. that donor also hired a private

1:33 pm
tea party for his healthcare overhaul in massachusetts. herman cain is taking heat over w conservatives over his 999 tax plan. leaving the candidates dead locked in the latest poll. can a clear front-runner still meaning in the race and if so, when? let's bring in march finance frost, david alawa and because of that, let me start with you. romney is certainly the darling of conservatives but does that mean in a general election he actually has a better ability to attract the moderates and independents and for that reason is mitt romney a better nominee for the republican party because he has broader appeal? >> governor romney certainly has a good appeal amongst not only independents and like minded
1:34 pm
democratic voters. certainly the one thing he has going for him is the intensity which republican voters, tea party voters, the coalition of republicans will put together to win the intensity they have for wanting to beat barack obama. the idea that he is talking about now, certainly his advisors would admit he has to show that passion. he has to show the retail side that he is billing to do that and gets good at that. certainly governor romney has put out a plan to create jobs, something we haven't seen the president do. >> gregg: let me get to congressman frost. over the last five decades, the percentage of democrats has been cut in half. i was looking at the numbers since 1961. it's really pretty startling. republicans have seen gains but the latest gallup poll, 46% of
1:35 pm
americans identify themselves as independents. president is standing is only 35%. does romney have a better chance as opposed to cain to win over all those independents? >> don't forget. there have been five democratic presidents since 1961. clearly the independents are up for grabs but the tea party people are out of luck here because no one that they really like has a clear shot at the nomination. cain has problems. he for tarp, for a national sales tax. they like perry. they like bachmann. so the tea party people are on the sidelines now. interesting thing about romney, there is an extraordinary profile of romney in today's "new york times," it talks about his role in the mormon church.
1:36 pm
the interesting thing about that profile, there was a relationship i didn't know of he was the local bishop. he was a key figure in the church in massachusetts. i've been active in democratic politics for a long time. i don't remember any nominee of either party who had a major leadership role in his particular church. >> gregg: people care for jobs and economy, i don't think they care whether he was a clergyman in the church. i was talking to larry from the university of virginia he is a key observer of presidential politics. he says americans will never elect somebody who has never held office. is he right or wrong? >> let me stirs address congressman frost's comment. it is astonishing that he would sit here and criticize mitt
1:37 pm
romney that he wouldn't be qualified for president of the united states. >> gregg: the article in "new york times" and you probably agree with it and they've done it before. getting to the point david of herman cain. never held public office and with the exception of eisenhower who obviously led the war and saved the free world, they are not going to elect somebody who never has held office? >> we're going to have to see. what he does bring to the table is a proven ability to create jobs. the environment this year is unlike any we've seen in this country for a long time. voters are so tired of the current system. they are so tired of a president who hasn't created one new job in this country since he took office. the number of months that we have been in higher than 9%
1:38 pm
unemployment all under barack obama is astounding. maybe this is a year where voters are going to say let's look at somebody who has actually created jobs and has done it in the private sector and let's hope the democratic party will do something. >> gregg: "washington post" reports that president obama and his team plan to turn the anti-wall street anger, the protestors, against mitt romney and republicans. i have two questions for you. number one, isn't that risky especially if the protests turn violent. number two, isn't it hypocritical since opponent has been the beneficiary of wall street largesse? >> first of all no one condones violence. i would not be in favor anything that became violent. secondly, let's look what is
1:39 pm
going on right now. mitt romney coming out of wall street. he ran a venture capital firm. if you saw in the "new york times" talked about how romney is getting all the money from wall street, not obama. i don't think you can characterize obama as a candidate from wall street. there is serious question about jobs, some of the things that mitt romney were involved in, outsource the jobs, some of the business ventures he was involved in. those are legitimate questions and should be addressed. no one is going to condone violence and i hope the demonstrations remain peaceful. people have a right to protest in this country. >> gregg: there is the thing called the first amendment. indeed, they do. >> heather: small school stirring up big controversy thanks to a new question on applications, what it asks that have some people concerned. thousands turned out to the

70,000 jobs. if i read your column correctly, you agree. are you sure about that? >> oh, i'm not sure about the numbers. if there is anything we've learned in the last year or two, is to be careful with prediction of numbers. but i do think the god news is that not withstanding proç -- think the good news is that not with -- we have reached some kind of consensus us is that free trade does open jobs and makes goods available to consumers here. >> there's critics a democrat said this, i've seen firsthand theç negative affects that trade agreements have had on our manufacturing sector this one is estimated to displace 159,000 jobs and increase our trade deficit with korea by 16.7 billion.
2:33 pm
global trade watch group says: couldn't this be hurting our economy? >> i don't know. if you look at history protectionism usually hurts the economy. in virtuallyç every era where concern with american joblessness has led to increasing trade barriers what we've found is that we hurt ourselves more than with we help ourselves. also significant this didn't turn into a big partisan battle. virtually everything in washington today is republicans vs. democrats. one side says day one side says night. here we have anç example of people doing what i think most people want them to do, which
2:34 pm
is working together, coming to a common solution and actually passing a bipartisan bill. it is like a miracle moment. >> it is. i have to agree. you write that you're inclined to blame republicans for the chronic failure to work with the democrats. i waítç to challenge you on that for a moment, if i may. you know me. >> i'm inclined to blame republicans because i'm a democrat. >> i know. but look, when the president presented his jobs bill a month ago, he demanded an all or nothing vote. he refused to break it up or cop my. even though boehner and cantor both said there's parts of this we like. theç president wouldn't budge. and his bill was kill. isn't president obama the one who is guilty of uncompromising partisanship, maybe not republicans? >> oh, i think there's plenty guilt to go around. when mitch mcconnell the

2:36 pm
it paid off with several bipartisan compromises. she said president obama is never -- has never done that. do you think she has a point. maybe part of the problem? >> well, i don't know who president obama has called i know president clinton worked those$ones i was very close to him. he was a superb politician and he understood the rule no permanent enemies, no permanent friends. but i don't think it would make -- unfortunately, i don't think a telephone call from president obama would move many votes today. i think the atmosphere in washington is frankly so poisoned and so entrenched and soç partisan and frankly, so hateful, that i think it is very hard for either side to walk across the bridge and find common ground with the other. >> it seemed so poisonous in '80, '81, tip o'neil and ronald reagan established a

lawyers. i don't think he has aç choice unless he gets the type of jury that perhaps o.j. simpson got in his case, other than that he's going to take a plea. >> he's not going to get that type of jury in fort hood where they just had -- just victimized by a similar situation where 13 were killed. down there that audience is going to take these things very seriously.ç >> could he get a fair trial? >> well, i don't think that we are going to get to that question. i don't believe there's going to be any jury selection. despite the fact it is being slated for jury selection. a judge would take voir dire seriously. as with we know, jurors take their jobs seriously. down there, this is just -- there's no way heç can't -- i don't see him not taking a deal. >> rachel makes a good point. a couple names come to mine. czar car --

zacharias moussaoui he went back and forth in the end he wanted to use the court system as a venue to preach jihad he wanted to make himself a public martyr aç problem in trying cases in federal civilian courts the other guy khalid sheikh mohammed seems to be taking the same tact. might ab due try to do that? >> he might. -- the one linchpin the prosecutors have is he was initially arrested on child porn charges. if the prosecutor decides if youç don't take this plea, we are going to file child porn charges against you that might sink his ship that's generally not something a jihadist is going to engage in. the guys in the prison system aren't going to like him too much for that to avoid that charge, my guess is he may take a plea. >> he will be in isolation, i would guess. rachel, last word. >> they are not going to goç

after him for the child porn issues. under the military tribunal laws he's charged with that under the military tribunal. no u.s. attorney can go after someone when they are under that jurisdiction for any charge. they've got him on the other stuff. >> i wouldn't count it out bet they bring that in, a great reason for him to plead guilty. >> you had to get the lastç word david. >> i'm sorry gregg. >> good to see you both. rachel and david, thank you. >> thank you. new information about critical drug shortages in the u.s.. fox news learn that a lack of supply my only be part of the problem. wait until you hear what else is going on behind the scenes.ç dr. marc siegel is here to explain, next. [ male announcer ] it's simple physics... a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis,

staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. and celebrex is not a narcotic. when it comes to relieving your arthritis pain, you and your doctor need to balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen, and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if y have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may use death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly a at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers.

as a follow-up on reports you have been seeing here. a growing crisisç in our health care industry. >> nearly 300 drugs in short supply here. hospitals say they had to delay treatments or unavailable to provide them all together. there may be more to the story than a lack of supply. joining us dr. siegel a member of the fox news medical
2:53 pm
a-team. since 2006, the number ofç drugs unavailable has tripled, why? >> it is a tremendous problem. the american hospital association found out 80% of the time, it leads to a delay in treatment. 70% they have to use a different drug than the one the patient is supposed to get. why? a shortage of raw materials. they are coming from overseas, 80% ofç the time. secondly, more and more of these drugs are going generic, chemotherapy, heart medication, antibiotics, blood thinners, i.v., these are lifesaving medications. another problem, right off the top, the drugs go to the ward theater which is where they should go. they end up in warehouses a lot of time because you don't know how much you are going to need in the combatç theater that's a problem. again, no profit, maintaining sterility, fda regulations that are strict about how these drugs are made, you end
2:54 pm
>> should drug companies be forced to be more transparent to let congress for example and the american public and shortages? >> great point. right now there's a law pending before congress to get the exact thing to happen. that the fda would have to be notified when there's an impending shortage. the fda claims if they know in advance there's something they can do about it. longer term, in my opinion, we would have to make more of the raw materials here which would mean government subsitipáy how the government warehousing some of these supplies here? i can hear you saying that's a lot of money. we are spending all our money on the health reform law, our insurance. this the righ÷5n time for me to be saying that money should be spent. but i have to tell you that has to happen. >> even resulting in deaths
2:55 pm
deaths as a result of people not getting their drugs. what do you do if you are a patient and need the drug? >> i have to tell you, that's a way under estimate i think it is hundreds if not thousands. i've been dealing with this directly. with a great response and i was taken out fromç under him. i started making calls, every hospital i called was out of this particular drug. it is one of the most important chemotherapy drugs there is. you call your congressman, the fda is meeting, more attention is being shined on this. but it doesn't solve the problem. >> are patients having to go with lesser effective drugs as a consequence? >> yes. againç, the american hospital association says 70% of the time they are choosing a drug that isn't as effective that could lead to them not getting better to illness being more protracted, that could lead to death. it is a terrible situation.
2:56 pm
something we are doing a big service shining a lot on now. hospitals in trouble. everybody is working on a more narrow profit margin. i don'tç want to say to the drug companies be more altruistic, i would like that, but they in business. >> slightly unique as opposed to other businesses because their products can save lives. >> okay. so then let's get them to put them aside and notify people in advance and be there9éf> whn the patient's life is on the line. >> dr. siegel, always great to see. >> that is itç for us. fox news sunday with chris wallace, next. >> hope you have a great week everybody! how about the beat of a healthy heart? campbell's healthy request soup is delicious, and earned this heart, for being heart healthy. ♪ feel the beat? it's amazing what soup cano.
