spokesman says he might skip a few. "the five" starts right now. >> eric: the clock is ticking for eric holder. republicans investigating the fast and furious gun running operation has given the attorney general two weeks to explain by the agents did not intercept guns used to murder at least one federal agent. and now the heat is also on the secretary of homeland security janet napolitano and her department role in all of this. watch this exchange from a congressional hearing yesterday. >> thank you, mr. chairman. madam secretary, you were a state and federal prosecutor. did you ever approve or sanction investigations that allowed gun walking? >> no, not to my knowledge. >> there is a reason you don't allow contraband, cash and guns to walk. as a former federal and state
prosecutor, can you give us those reasons? >> well, i don't like to speculate. >> i'm not asking you to speculate. >> every prosecutor makes different decisions. i don't believe i was ever presented with that decision. >> eric: you know, the story doesn't go away. thankfully we keep bringing you the story, because look at that. there she is. secretary of homeland security. wouldn't draw that out, that was her trying to figure out if she heard it or talked about it or signed anything about it. i'm not sure what i'm more worried, that s knew about it or didn't know about it. >> dana: i expect her to be methodical and the committee is methodical. their role is oversight. that's what they were supposed to do. if they weren't doing oversight, we'd ask congress why weren't you doing their job. everybody has a role to play. congressionally mandated she had to testify. other people are having to testify. i don't understand why the administration didn't ask for
independent investigation to look at this all at once from independent point of view. the congressional investigation would go on but the administration would have its story. >> eric: the rhetoric changed a little bit. in the discussion all day today, darrell issa, congressional hearings from last night and now they are talking about terry, the gun used in his death. there was speculation was there a second murder zapata around san diego. whether that was also attributed to gun used from fast and furious. now they are talking in terms of two murders. this thing could get bigger and bigger. >> andrea: it could get bigger and bigger and it is getting bigger, and bigger. we learned it possibly touches the state department. hillary clinton was testifying and shows under the arms export control act the d.o.j. was required to get a waiver from her department, state department. that didn't happen. this is not only touching every agency in the administration, big agencies, state department, a.t.f., but
it's also affecting i think going to be a war between these important -- i mean infighting between the obama administration. >> eric: security and state department. >> andrea: right. blame game. >> eric: listen to hillary clinton today. >> at what point did the state department learn of operation fast and furious? >> congressman, i don't know the exact time. i can tell you based on our information from the part of the state department that could deal with this kind of issue, we have record of request for coordination, we have no record of any kind of notice or heads up. and my recollection is that i learned about it from the press. that is my recollection. >> eric: bob, my recollection, i learned about it -- are you nervous that here we are, we are sending drones all over the world and picking up bad guys but
secretary of state learned about the initiative to bring guns across an international border, she learned about it from the press? >> bob: i want to congratulate jarret on joining on the congressional witch hunt. the question you asked me when we started the show napolitano did you approve walking gun yourself had absolutely nothing to do with fast and furious. your question implied that she knew nothing about it. the question she was asked as a prosecutor, did she approve guns that were walked or money that was walked. so we can get part of the witch hunt here in some kind of perspective. secondly, >> eric: are you telling me -- >> bob: go back and look at the tape. go back and look at the tape. look at the question. >> eric: she was also asked whether or not she knew about -- >> bob: all i'm asking, all i'm asking -- wait a second. wait a second. i'm asking you to keep this in some context. she was not asked a question,
in that sound bite we used the guy said when you were a prosecutor, have you ever approved walking guns or walking money? she stopped and didn't say anything for eight long excruciating seconds -- >> eric: that was a piece of sound. she already said no, she didn't know about the gun walking initiative. >> bob: no, that is not the question -- >> eric: regardless. can you -- comparing secretary of state not knowing that guns -- >> bob: other thing i'll say about this, is this a problem? of course it is. is it -- should it have been investigated earlier? yes, it should have. would the border agent have been killed? do you think they would have showed up without guns? he would have been killed with or without fast and furious guns. >> eric: 2500 guns went to mexican drug lords. >> andrea: is that the best you can do? he would have been killed anyway? >> bob: my guess is -- do you think the drug guys would have shown up without guns? >> andrea: oh, he would have died anyway.
you're right. move on. >> eric: that is not my point. >> bob: you're making this sound as if all the guns used in the attract are brought to you by fast and furious. >> andrea: you don't think this is an issue? >> bob: i don't what more i can do. i finished saying -- >> eric: why is bob in a bad move today this >> greg: i have no idea. i'll come to bob's defense. i think we're being too hard on holder. with fast and furious he looked to boost the american exports by getting new jobs and getting criminals back in the country means more work for police officers. so he was helping the economy. >> andrea: do we need to pundal the jobs? >> eric: let's do this now. can we put the -- do we have the stat, the 26% support gun ban, record low. do we have a full screen for that? get this out of the way. a record low number of people now support a gun law,
enforcing it, increasing the gun law. >> greg: interesting thing we talked about before. people who support gun bans generally aren't around guns. those who are used to gun see guns as their everyday life have no problem with it. there is something else going on here. when you see on tv, people talking about redistribution and taking what is yours. i think it makes more sense when people start to think about maybe i should buy something. >> eric: in 2008 and 2009, permits for gun sales went up. >> greg: i am talk about the protesters. >> bob: the question were posed to you correctly. ban on handguns. not on all guns. >> eric: okay. i put myself in that place. can we show the ad that bob is all up in arms on? >> we will attempt to teach

yet. after several recent debate disasters, republican candidate rick perry considering skipping some of them why he goes on a desperate hunt for his mojo. go ahead. let me ask you, what do you think the strategy is in skipping debate? >> andrea: they think it is his biggest weakness so let's do what he did when he was governor of texas, duck a lot of debates. this way we can avoid the potential gaffes that plagued him in the past. but i think it's a really stupid move. he cannot afford to miss the debates. it called around to the other campaigns to see what they are doing, because his press secretary, perry's, i should say, said you know what? it's impossible to commit to all of them. not so, bachmann has committed to all of them. there are nine televised debate through the end of the year. gingrich committed to all of them as well. cain soft committed to some but has hard committed to the michigan debate. romney and santorum never got back to us. >> bob: here is the problem for perry. yes, he has problems with debates but there is only two months left in the iowa
caucuses. you are not going to turn down televised debate. you can't do it. what he did in iowa is interesting. run television ads that are positive ads. at least not negative against opponents. they're against obama. if i were he i would go to the debate. he can't afford not to do that. he needs to engage people. this guy is in trouble in the polls. he has got to use his money to get back in the game. >> eric: 18 more? >> bob: no, there are nine. >> eric: 18 more debates. >> bob: they're not all televised. >> eric: that is what he means? >> dana: they didn't say they weren't going to do them. they have a new team. they hired people. maybe they are taking a moment and looking at this. unfortunately for them and all of us, you have to eat your spinach. you are going to have to sit there at the table until you're finished with your spinach. they have to do the debate. he will get better at it.

limit the debates offered? >> bob: they won't do that. the rule of thumb is take two-and-a-half days out of campaign week to get ready for the debate and do the debate itself. it's exhibition season, except the difference here is with an uniformed republican primary ballot, or candidates, you seem to move him all around. what is moving them? debates. i think tv will start to move them. that's where perry has a big advantage. he can spend money, the rest can't. >> andrea: what i would do if i were perry, embrace the george bush conservative, embrace george bush. that's something a lot of candidates haven't done yet. here is why. there is a lot of money on the sidelines now. a lot of the bush rangers, remember, dana? who rounded up a ton of money are still holding their cash. that is an easy way, the guys have not lined up behind mitt romney. embrace bush in the debate. fundraise on the side. that's why he is not doing the debate. >> dana: i would agree. i'm on the side of george w.
bush. a lot of people think one thing perry has going for him, i don't necessarily agree with this, he tweaks the establishment and drives them crazy. which a lot of the rangers might be considered establishment. >> eric: if he did, he'd do a lot what mitt romney does. >> bob: move you along. not because i predict him the other day, but newt gingrich seems i think to be the adult in the debate. he comes across as a guy with reason. nobody argues he's not smart. she a dark horse who can win in iowa. what do you think? >> eric: can i say something? >> bob: yes. >> greg: they call it the newt tortoise campaign, sounding like an everglade theme park. but he looks like a tortoise. he is thoughtful. he says he has a good chance of being the nominee. i am starting to believe him.
