[ coughing ] ♪ ♪ >> eric: happy monday, everyone. i'm eric bolling, along with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, brian kilmeade. i'm glad you're here. 5:00 on the east coast. this is "the five." the conversation starts right now. first, obama care on the docket. supreme court will hear the case and will get results before next year's election. and speaking of the president, he thinks americans are lazy. donald trump has choice words for the criticizer in chief. you will hear all about it. gloria cain defends her husband to greta van susteren in an exclusive interview.
>> that would have been something that was totally disrespectful of her as a woman. and i know that's not the person he is. >> eric: and then jerry sandusky that penn state coach accused of sexual assault is still getting tens of thousands of dollars every year from the university. unbelievable. "the five" starts right now. ♪ ♪ >> eric: right to the top story. the supreme court announced it will hear the obamacare case. the states brought on the suit and the big question is the individual mandate constitutional? and is there any indication that obamacare could be in trouble? rasmussen poll out today says 55% of americans want it repealed. only 37% don't. kimberly, go through the process right now. supreme court will hear it. what is next? how do the judges fall? 5-4, what do you think?
>> kimberly: that is what the smart money is on, 5. 4 keep in mind it could go 5-4 either way. especially when you look at the most recent jurisprudence on this, where you have two justices from two different appellate courts ruling, conservative justices and backing up obamacare. this one is anybody's to win. not certain which way it will go whatsoever. at issue is whether or not the individual mandate should be struck down, whether or not you're able to compel an individual, you know, an american citizen to actually purchase healthcare insurance. if they fail to do so, can you penalize them? >> eric: the pushback is what kimberly points out. congress in the constitution that should be applied where the government is telling you to buy a product. >> bob: if you read what the appellate court says, that's what they made their case on. on the commerce clause. if they go by the law and the
precipice, there is no douse in my mind that this obama healthcare law will be made the law of the land. the supreme court will agree to it. or if they do their job. if they do -- >> eric: curiosity, what precedent -- you are citing a precedent. i don't see a precedent. >> bob: if you look at the appellate court decisions they head a sum of things about the commerce clause. but supreme court can do what they did and become hacks and play the political game. and basically make a decision that had nothing to do with the law and had everything to do with the politics. gore versus bush. >> eric: the commerce clause, application of commerce clause. the government telling every american they have to buy a product. demanding you buy it. >> dana: this is the most amount of states come together to challenge a federal law. 26 states. there is a state of virginia lawsuit that could be combined to be heard. one thing is the public opinion of this law got worse over time. you remember president biden said the more people learn
about it, the more they'll like it. that's not true. white house doesn't talk about the bill. they prefer they don't hear anything about it. last week in ohio when there was a vote, 88 counties, all counties voted against the individual mandate. the problem for people out there who don't like it, public opinion doesn't matter when it comes to the supreme court. the reason that the question is being asked is not just because of a precedent. there is a division amongst the courts. that is why the supreme court will take it up. >> eric: can we talk about the national federation of independent businesses is also suing the obama administration on grounds that the constitutionality of the law far exceeds anything that they see, is in this book right here. what do you think when the job creators are around 70% of all new jobs in america think it's unconstitutional and will hurt their business. >> brian: it's interesting. go back to 55% in the open. 55% of the country wants to repeal according to the rasmussen poll. i believe president obama can't lose. here is why.
it's unpopular. the stat read is unpopular. if it's rejected sentiment goes his way. this poor guy passed a massive healthcare bill but the bad republicans don't. if it's rejected it's better for the country and economy. that is good. but for president obama he becomes a sympathetic figure. if it's held within the supreme court, then he wins. he won on every level. >> bob: i am not going to say good point yet. the fact of the matter is if this is done on the law, it may be like brown versus board of education. i would not be surprised to be a unanimous court support this law. because it ought to support it. if they don't, they are playing politics. like i said. dana didn't like it. >> dana: this is what you are going to see tomorrow morning? both sides. the right and the left is going to set it up that whatever the decision is, it will be absolutely right or absolutely illegitimate. the debate will rage on. >> eric: at least from one of the big debates is let's fast forward. they are going to hear the
opening arguments in spring. it may be decided by 2012. if bob is right and mitt romney is the g.o.p. representative, this is going to be so hard for him to deal with. right smack dab in the middle -- >> bob: plus the fact if the republicans hack out and they go against it for political reasons because they're not supposed to look at polls by the way. i wouldn't look at that poll particularly with all due respect to rasmussen. the republicans will be left with this dilemma. there are so 40 million people uninsured in america. what are you going to do about it? >> eric: another dilemma. president obama for the second time in a couple of months called americans lazy. take a listen to this. >> we have been a little bit lazy in the last few decades. we take for granted people want to come here and we aren't out there hungry selling america and trying to attract new businesses in america. >> my take on that is it's disgusting. he allows other countries to manipulate currencies and make it impossible for to us do
business and then he calls this country lazy. >> bob: i think it's disgusting that you put him on the air. >> brian: he's fantastic. >> brian: the fact that the president of the united states called us soft, we lost our competitive edge and now we're called lazy. this has to be the guy that addressed the jets at halftime in the patriot act game because they came out so flat. he is trying desperately to flatten out our country and diffuse us and get us off the high horse. why is he so determined to bring us down? >> bob: brian, as usual, we take this out of context here. and what he was talking about was business. he said we've gotten somewhat lazy. >> brian: i know. >> bob: he said we haven't gotten -- >> dana: like to keystone pipeline. >> eric: who is being lazy. what do you mean american businesses are lazy. >> bob: we've all gotten lazy. >> eric: he is an apologist. and he apologized to muslims in cairo in 2009. >> bob: so? >> eric: he apologized to
the french in how americans look to europeans. >> bob: don't apologize for french for us. >> brian: for eating snails. whose idea was that? >> dana: it's the last two decades. that would include the clinton period which i thought was the garden of eden when it comes to businesses. president obama has a jobs council. i don't know if he is not listening to them or what. this is the second time that president obama said this. they have done the research on the left and this language works. the small business owners that they would be offended and insulted. >> eric: blame everyone. technology is lazy. killing jobs in america. the real corporate is overregulating and overtaxing. >> this is his approach. >> kimberly: i agree with dana he is getting advice this rhetoric will work.
i don't get that. this is libe a parenting approach. he think he is will motivate the people. okay, kids we want to be emancipated. >> reverse psychology. >> this is taking it to the "n"th degree here. this is taking it oversported jobs and they're lazy to get the jobs here because they don't care about the american jobs. it was a business conversation. >> eric: what do you mean lazy? >> bob: i'm saying if you take a company overseas to get cheap labor and profits over there. >> eric: it's not lazy. i >> bob: i consider it anti-american. >> dana: you will be arguing
globalization is -- >> bob: part of that is true! >> eric: no global warming is laziness. we have to leave it there. herman cain's wife gloria gave an exclusive interview to greta van susteren. we will tell you what she is saying about allegation against her husband. e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ if you've just signed up for medicare or will soon,

>> bob: let me stop at this very moment and say that is a good point. i mean it. i do think she was quite gracious and good television person. she said the right thing. she was referring to a gloria allred woman who i think that woman is a scam. whose boyfriend is going to come out today and say something. but it's a week late. the other problem is he keeps saying this won't be the last. he knows there will be others. the or thing i might say with all due respect to her, what do people expect she was going to say? >> dana: but a good performance. >> bob: but did anybody expect there would be anything -- i don't think people expect or were surprised to say she supports him. >> brianhim. >> kimberly: i like her.
i thought she was consistent and authentic and came off genuine. she didn't come off as a professional politician that is spinning you left and right from center. i think she is actually very credible. of course, she stands by her husband. they have been married. that should count for something. she said they this is behavior and conduct inconsistent with what she has seen in the course of 43 years. i think bringing her out. she was supposed to do an interview prior to the story breaking. that i delayed it out. >> brian: tell me what you think about the timing of this thing, the interview tonight. we see herman cain suffering in the poll two weeks after it broke. >> eric: this is important, the gingrich number. if you watched the foreign policy debate saturday night, newt gingrich showed himself being the smartest man in the room. the one who really could be at the top, you know, he has obviously personal issues as well that probably when he gets to the top politico will find a way to take his legs
out, too. herman cain is on the down swing. gloria, fantastic, beautiful lady presents wonderfully. too little too late. >> bob: the other problem is -- by the way, i'm delighted to see people finally picking up on the gingrich point. i'm not going to say anything. but you know, it is true. that kind of precipitous fall sends to happen. when you have a situation like this in politics, there is a ten-day period to absorb and sink in with people. they don't follow as closely as we do the average person. when it hits, it hits. this drop doesn't surprise me. it's led by women. as you expect. >> brian: not as big as perry's. i want you to see the people around cain when people use the fact he is african-american, whether he wants to be called black or african-american. they use it against him. the question is his integrity. let's walk. >> black people know that if herman cain had his way, their lives would be diminished.

was as klos to racist i heard. our blacks work harder than her blacks? who is she talking about? ann coulter never run across a black that she knows to make a determination. >> brian: that is not fair. i don't know who she works with. but the point is the republicans as opposed to republicans. you don't see republicans attack each other because they're black. >> eric: it all fits together. you don't hear the liberal left making remarks about president obama. >> bob: you say that and you dismiss it. sorry. >> eric: no, just the ann coulter part. >> bob: which is right, as bad as that was.
