3:00 am
what might be worse than jimmy fallon's oensive welcome for presidential candidate michelle bachmann, the so-called apology. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> hello, you're watching "fox & friends." >> thank you very much, petra. >> and welcome to our buddy huddy who if you were watching the preshow, you saw when she came to the set. what do you think this is "the tonight show" you gave her a kiss? >> i don't know. >> you didn't know we were on camera? >> that's why i was shocked you gave me the double kiss. it's very euro. >> do not blame juliet. she does what a lot of women did, she can't keep her hands off me when they locked eyes. that's pretty funny, brian. >> anyway, huddy, our buddy. great to have you today. let's start with talking about a little bit about the 11th debate last night at the daughters of
3:01 am
revolution in constitution hall in downtown washington, d.c. there you see a guy who is a frontrunner in a number of polls right now and surprisingly, newt gingrich came out with a stand on illegal immigration. people who have been here for 20, 25 years, something like that, he says there should be a way for them to stay in this country. >> we got a soundbite. >> the party that says it's the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy that destroys families that have been here a quarter century and i'm prepared to take the heat for saying, let's be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship but by finding a way to create legality so that they are not separated from their families. >> we know what happened when perry got into that territory but remains to be seen what's going to happen with this. >> mitt romney already said it's -- >> pressures a lot of folks. i think it resonates with a lot of people. >> looks at it from a practical
3:02 am
perspective and refers to a study that he believes backs up his beliefs and he was confident in saying that, didn't stumble into that where i sense that governor perry did kind of stumble into it and had no idea about the firestorm to come. newt gingrich fully aware of it. overall, they had their hands full last night because like it or not, foreign policy is where the president has 52% approval so it was -- i thought the whole thing was very crisp. i thought it was sober. i thought it was very direct. i thought they were very polite to each other and the sleeper may be congresswoman michelle bachmann who was here yesterday. she used her place on the intelligence committee to show she understands the trouble spots in the world. >> let's back up for a second to talk about newt's suggestion about what to do about illegals. his plan was, you know, he talked about if you've been here for 25 years, and you got a couple of kids -- >> that was an arbitrary number. >> that's right. it could be 15 years. if you put down roots -- >> raise your family. >> if you pay taxes, can you really ask those people to be
3:03 am
deported whereas, you know, if you've been here since tuesday, you got no real connection, time to go home. a aif you're somebody who came in the last couple of years, you haven't planted your roots and you're not paying taxes, those are the folks that he's talking about, it seems like. it was a very kind of -- it was a stayed sort of debate compared to the last ones we had. you didn't hear the whooping and cheering because it was sponsored by the heritage foundation and another group. i'll tell you what, brian, and i think you'll agree with me, when people ask questions from think tanks, they are much better on questions from people in drunk tanks. >> unfortunately, we have experienced the fault from the think tanks on the outside and the drunk tanks on the outside. everybody was talking about iran and talking bold about iran. he was probably the most direct saying that we have to take out the regime and here's how.
3:04 am
>> we need a strategy of replacing the current regime and we need a strategy that you don't care if you're in pakistan or afghanistan, you have the same tribal relationships. we have to be much more strategic and less tactical in our discussion. if we were serious, we could break the iranian regime within a year starting out candidly with cutting off the gasoline supply to iran and frankly sabotaging the only refinery they have. >> it's that last line that made a lot of people -- that probably propelled him to the top. he talks specifics and he sounds like a statesman. when they're going after each other, you get lost but when you sound like a statesman like he did, he's to the top. >> he did talk a bit about the tsa and the mess over there and how troublesome it is and burdensome it is to go through all that screening at the airport. wolf blitzer who herman cain
3:05 am
mangled his name for a minute, here's mr. cain as he stumbles with wolf's first name. >> if there are some areas of the patriot act that we need to refine, i'm all for that. but i do not believe we ought to throw out the baby with the bath water for the following reasons. the terrorists have one objective that some people don't seem to get. they want to kill all of us. so we should use every means possible to kill them first or identify them first. >> but just to be precise, mr. cain, i want to give you a chance, is it ok for muslim-americans to get more intensive patdowns or security when they go through airports than christian americans or jewish americans? >> no, blitz, that's oversimplifying it. i happened to believe that if you allow our intelligence agencies to do their job, they can come up with an approach --
3:06 am
i'm sorry blitz, i meant wolf, ok. blitz, wolf. since we're on a blitz debate, i apologize. wolf. what i'm saying is let's ask the professionals to give us an approach of how we can increase their identification of people that might be a danger to civilians as well as a danger to this nation. >> thank you, cain. >> was ron paul shaking his head because of the blitz comment or shaking his head because of the -- because of what he was saying. >> he graduated high school with wolf blitzer because he took it personal. i have no idea. i think it's because what he was saying -- >> simple thing to do. easy mistake to make. >> blitz. >> i thought wolf blitzer could have rolled with it a little better. he kind of sat there like wolf blitzer. he could have acted like somebody else, it would have been nice. i thought herman cain actually did better than i originally thought because he's so out of his water. he's been focusing on the
3:07 am
domestic economy, small and big business. i thought he did better. >> did we hear 9-9-9 last night? >> no, no, no. >> charles krauthammer on where herman cain goes from here. >> he's asked about china, he responds 9-9-9. he's asked about medicare, he responds 9-9-9. here's a guy, herman cain who said last week, proudly talking about his not knowing about foreign affairs, we need a leader, not a reader. can you imagine ronald reagan ever saying that? or ever thinking that? >> all right. so that's a little of the post-game show regarding -- >> you know what he was referring to, that the president reads the prompter all the time. >> i -- we have four of them right here. who do you think won last night? and do you think that newt gingrich's stand on immigration illegals who have been here for a long time, that they should be allowed to stay, do you think that will harm him the way it
3:08 am
harmed, as juliet said a moment ago, governor rick perry. e-mail us. >> or also twitter. don't tell us who you think won, who surprised you and who do you think is done? >> did you say twitter? that's the new way to apologize these days. you don't actually have to say you're sorry in public anymore. you can get out your blackberry. >> chicago says it's hard to say you're sorry. >> it is. >> what does fish bone say? >> fishbone, twitter, let's put it together for you. michelle bachmann who is on this program, on this couch right here yesterday morning was on the jimmy fallon show on monday night. and as she's walking out, good possibility you can't identify that song but it is -- i'm not going to say the title completely but it's lying and then a word that rhymes with bass and a word that rhymes with witch. >> if you need anyone to say that, let juliet say the bad words. >> really? you want to get rid of me? i do live in hoboken. anyway, so jimmy fallon -- here's the thing, though, as the
3:09 am
kids were telling me, one of the producers was telling me. >> the young people. >> typically when these guests come out, they're irreverent and they can be a little snarky, this one went a little bit overboard. >> i would say so. >> . but -- >> woman that could be president. >> here's what jimmy fallon tweeted. he didn't call her. he said i'm honored that michelle bachmann was on our show yesterday. i'm so sorry about the intro mess. i really hope she comes back. >> by the way, this was not something they stumbled into because the guy, the drummer, wes love, he tweeted ahead of time to everybody look out, you're going to -- it's going to be a very snarky, my intro to michelle bachmann. >> later, he responded via twitter, i believe, the performance was tongue in cheek and spur of the moment. that's not true! they were twittering it was going to be something. >> if you can't believe the drummer in a late night band, who can you believe in? >> called -- a congresswoman from new york has called for an
3:10 am
apology from nbc, from fallon and the band as well. remember, nbc had to apologize not too long ago for taking under god out of the pledge. >> maybe the whole cast of 30 rock should apologize. >> was that a good enough apology by jimmy fallon? >> is that all you have to do? e-mail us or twitter us with your apology. we have some headlines for you on this, the biggest travel day of the year. you can thank mother nature for causing a major travel delay today. some nightmares that you can see, two storms, the big one here in the northeast. it's got some snow. it's got some heavy rain. some thunder stuff as well. all the way from northeast. boston's logan airport, philly, new york already reporting minor delays. you can expect them to get worse across the central plain states. things are nice and dry. if we go back to the maps, we'll show you something exactly where to expect some delays today. back to the maps, frankie, if you could. >> that's a map. >> there is no frankie.
3:11 am
>> yeah, there is. he does it his way. boston, heavy travel delays. new york, heavy travel delays and in washington, d.c. and washington state, some moderate travel delays as you go over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house this day before thanksgiving. >> that's not good. not good news. >> huddy? >> let's stick to news now. a bus carrying a girls high school basketball team crashed sending at least 20 people to the hospital. cops believe a drunk driver in a pickup truck is to blame. it happened in southern maryland. the girls were students at great mills high school and they were coming back from a game in virginia when a bus went off the road. the driver of the truck, john kravits arrested for drunk driving. all the girls are expected to be ok. new details about a florida mother who disappeared the same day her case appeared on "the people's court." michelle parker reportedly filed for a restraining order against her ex-fiance dale smith back in 2009. she claimed he smashed the window of her s.u.v. and threw car seats in the road, warned
3:12 am
her "your day is coming." meanwhile, parker's mother is speaking out and she says she expects a major break in the case as early as today after telling a local tv station "there's a lot of stuff going on that we can't tell you." spoiler alert, we're about to show you who won "dancing with the stars." >> j.r. and karina! >> all right. i heard it this morning. iraq war veteran, soap star j.r. martinez won the mirror ball trophy and he celebrated on jimmy kimmel live. >> you were fighting in iraq, did you ever have any idea you would do this well on "dancing with the stars"? >> i didn't know what "dancing with the stars" was when i was in iraq, you know. i was too busy fighting the enemy but it's amazing, man. >> karina smirnoff was his partner. j.r. says he's going to write a book and he will continue being a motivational speaker. the mirror ball trophy, that's going on his mantle next to his purple heart.
3:13 am
>> very impressive. >> very happy about that. rob kardashian shockingly didn't win. >> too bad. >> it's a shame. we still watched. coming up straight ahead, watch this. it's unbelievable. you see a chopper. he's got to help out -- >> oh, my goodness! >> he gets caught in the wires. miraculous escape straight ahead. >> that is crazy. plus we just showed you some of the g.o.p. debate highlights but was there a clear winner when it comes to foreign policy? dick morris weighs in. you're watching "fox & friends" for this wednesday that kind of feels like a friday. >> a little bit. >> maybe to you. looking good! you lost some weight. you noticed! these clothes are too big, so i'm donating them.

♪ the lexus december to remember sales event is here, but only for a limited time. see your lexus dealer. >> welcome back. the republican candidates may not agree on foreign policy but they agreed on one thing last night, president obama's ability to lead. >> let's stand back for a moment. we've been talking about israel and iran.
3:17 am
what we're talking about here is a failure on the part of the president to lead with strength. >> he has changed the course of history because at the time when we needed a leader most, we didn't have one. >> i don't think anybody is particularly surprised that a super committee failed. it was a super failure. and i think we expected that. we had a president of the united states who is not a leader. >> dick morris is a former advisor to president clinton, the author of "revolt" and joins us live from connecticut. good morning to you, sir. >> good to be here. >> we were talking a little while ago about the exchange with newt gingrich saying that people who are in this country not legally for 20, 25 years, there should be an avenue for them to somehow become citizens. what did you think about that? >> well, before we get to that, let me just say that i think gingrich won the debate. i think that he was absolutely fabulous and i particularly thought that his -- i mean, he showed himself to be incredibly
3:18 am
knowledgeable and with innovative solutions when he picked off the criteria he would use to keep troops in afghanistan about no sanctuaries, hot pursuit and stuff like that, i think he was wonderful. i feel gingrich gave romney in particular a real opening to go after him with his proposal for a very selective form of amnesty. he had to be here 25 years. you have to be in a church. you have to have paid taxes, gotten a job. first of all, i think it may be unconstitutional because you can't say i'll give you amnesty because you're in a church and i won't give it to you but i thought romney's point that all of this is just a magnet and whenever you get a candidate who has got his two opponents that can be painted with the same brush, he's got a really good thing going and he has perry and gingrich both now on this magnet amnesty issue. >> sure. >> so i felt in terms of impression, gingrich did the
3:19 am
best job and substance but i think strategically, romney may have had a real breakthrough. >> ok, so you think newt won. who lost? >> well, you know, i hate to say this because i love him. i think he's fabulous and i love his domestic program. but cain was just out of his league last night in talking about foreign policy. and when he got up there and said we should stop buying oil from syria, there are two problems. a, we don't. and b, syria doesn't miss selling it. syria sells about 300,000 barrels a day, probably 50th in the world as an oil producer and what cain meant to do is he meant to say i'm a businessman. i look at the facts of the matter. i weigh how it's going but instead, he seemed like he was both -- taking both sides of the issue. >> gotcha. >> and he seemed not to be definitive. i thought bachmann, by the way, did superbly. i think she really came through. showed how smart she is. >> all right. very good, dick. we just did winners and losers with dick morris. we want him to stick around. we want to get his thoughts on
3:20 am

3:25 am
acclimation the candidate for democratic party, secretary of state hillary clinton. >> is this something we'll see more and more, this call for having obama step away and hillary walk in? >> well, you might. but i think the democrats are sel self-deluding now. there's the same kind where they convince each other that they've now turned the current corner and everything is going to be great and i think that where the objective fact is that obama is in worst shape now than he was six months ago, the democrats have talked themselves into believing he's in better shape and he's not. >> let's take a look at a poll that was done in -- i know it's a little on the stale side but it's the last one done by head to head. if you look at the president of the united states against mitt romney, it's pretty much within the margin of error but when you look at mitt romney vs. hillary
3:26 am
clinton, she runs away with it. >> yeah. right. well, yeah, i think that anyone who is not a candidate does really well these days. you know, there was an interesting exchange the other day, yesterday, actually, between obama and romney's campaign. romney put an ad on television in new hampshire that quoted obama who was quoting mccain at the time saying any time we talk about the economy, we lose. and they were saying that now that obviously applies to obama and obviously it does and the obama campaign raised a squawk but it shows their vulnerability on this issue. >> interesting. all right. now, dick, in one of the commercial breaks, you told me that you had an interesting observation about the way that cnn staged the debate last night. >> i think cnn was deliberately trying to hype ron paul and to some extent huntsman but mainly paul and down play mitt romney.
3:27 am
paul got so much more air time. when romney spoke, they had a split screen and ron paul reacted to romney's speech. and if you watch that debate, you would think that ron paul was the front running republican candidate. now, i know cnn didn't want to go the way msnbc did which is to zero in on the top two or three contenders and ignore the rest but they were going way overboard to get this nut, in my view, a lot of air time and i think what they're trying to do is at least project the image that he stands for the republican party which he doesn't and at best give hum a large vote share to embarrass the party. >> interesting. >> but romney went half-hour and no one was asking him a question. >> interesting theory, mr. morris. good to see you. >> good to see you. thank you. >> did you want to take it? >> no, i was going to say i guess he's not a fan of ron paul's. >> a nut. up next, a woman brutally attacked as thves tried to steal her purse but don't count

3:37 am
should resign and protest. >> what they're doing is cutting a trillion dollars out of the defense budget. they're cutting a trillion dollars out of the defense budget which happens to equal the trillion dollars they're putting into obama care. >> i covered ronald reagan's presidency and as you know, and i'll read a quote, he wrote in his autobiography this, if you got 75% or 80% of what you were asking for, i say you take it and fight for the rest later. if you got 75% or 80% of what you wanted, would you make a deal with the democrats, increase some taxes in order to move on? >> it depends on what the 75% and 85% is. if the things that you have to give up make what you're trying to accomplish harder to do, in other words reduce the deficit, what the republican -- why the republicans are drawing a line in the sand rightfully so is because what the democrats are attempting to do is increase taxes which will slow down this economy which will increase the deficit, reduce tax revenues ultimately and increase government payments so you don't

work against yourself. >> interesting dialogue regarding the super committee. stuart varney joins us right here, right now. stuart, because of the inaction of the super committee, there's a good chance that people are going to be taking home less money in their paychecks. >> what you're talking about is the extension of the payroll tax holiday. everybody's got that tax holiday now. it goes away on january 1st unless congress acts. so they've got a very limited time frame here. act and everybody keeps that tax break. no action, everybody's taxes go up. >> where does the money go? stuart, where does the money go? when the payroll tax, does it go to social security? >> yes, it does. >> so social security which is not fully funded right now is getting less money so something is paying the price here. >> that's true. but you can expect this extension to go through. speaker boehner says he's quite prepared to talk about it. the democrats want the extension. i'm sure this is going to happen. >> something they'll easily sign
3:39 am
away on. >> not easily. there will be a lot of negotiating here. you have three weeks and you have to deal with all kinds of financial issues. there's chaos coming. extension of unemployment benefits, less payment for doctors who treat medicare. you have to have a new spending bill. all of this in three weeks. that is financial chaos. >> it's the lightning round. let's talk a little bit about this. we're now officially $15 trillion in debt. the meantime, people get up in arms about the, you know, $15 baggage fee and now congress, rather than worrying about the debt is going to figure out some way so that we're not bugged by the baggage fee? >> yes. two senators have introduced legislation that would stop airlines from leveeing a fee on your first checked bag. that sounds like a nice idea, doesn't it? i'm sure we've all approved of it. what on earth is the united states senate doing debating airline baggage fees when we're $15 trillion in debt and we've

3:41 am
>> i feel your outrage on "varney & company". will you be discussing this? >> oh, yes. >> all right, stuart. very nicely done. thank you, sir. >> straight ahead, the super committee couldn't do its jobs. we were just talking. so now, our military may pay the price. colonel oliver north knows first hand how these cuts will undermine our country's defense. he's here live next. >> and the post office cannot pay its bills. so guess what, we're going to have details on a price hike coming your way. when gas prices jump... you still gotta work. so suddenly you're cutting back on everything from family vacations to cell phone minutes. well here's a thought - how bout cuttin' back on gas? here's how: the ford f-150.

3:45 am
you say no sanctuaries. you change the rules of engagement. you put the military in charge of the military side and you overhaul the state department so they get the job done and you do it for real and you do it intensely. and you tell the pakistanis, help us or get out of the way. but don't complain if we kill people you're not willing to go after on your territory where you have been protecting them. >> wow. that's the guy that grew up on military bases all across the country. joining us this morning with reaction to the debate last night on national security and foreign policy, our own lieutenant colonel oliver north. welcome back. >> good to be with you, brian, and he was spot on last night. >> nobody is talking about rules of engagement but that's something you always talk about. >> well, look at, what newt gingrich said last night and it reflects the fact that he has more foreign policy experience than all the rest of the candidates combined. to deal with this problem, we've got in afghanistan and pakistan. and the reality of it is weakness never begets
3:46 am
cooperation from people who are uncertain about what we're going to be able to do. this administration's lack of leadership on everything from the budget to the economy to how to fight this war is evident in what we've got going on over there starting with the withdraw from iraq and now the draw down in afghanistan. no doubt about it. >> people who actually fight in the war, the people who you spend a lot of time with and the ones that have to sacrifice the most are most worried all their hard work will be for not because they're pulling out too soon and too haphazardly. >> i was down in quantico, virginia, yesterday doing a video for a show that we've got coming up for the holidays. every single one of those marines that we talked to down there said we want to finish and win this war. we don't want to go, in other words, the way ollie north and his comrades had it go from vietnam. >> let's talk about the military budget and how it will be cut by 2013 if they don't come up with some answers to the failure of the super committee. they're talking about an army the size of america in 1940.
3:47 am
a navy the size of ours in 1913. and the air force cut more than it's ever been. what's your reaction? >> well, ignores the real impressive danger that we face from iran, north korea, china and other potential threats like you've got going on in the horn of africa. you cannot encourage people to do the right thing. for example, in pakistan. or the russians by perception of weakness. it has failed every single time with every nation on the planet and weakness is going to be reflected by what they're going to do. we're disarming them in the midst of a war and it's never happened before. >> the president has an asian trip that by most accounts went well, he flexed his muscles and talked about his presence in asia at the same time cutting our navy down to a mere mortal proportions. let's look at what leon panetta says. he says space initiatives if they incur these cuts stands, that will be cut back $27 billion. missile defense which i believe we need, $2 billion, gone. ballistic missile fleet cut, $8 billion worth and the navy fleet
3:48 am
230 ships, 10 new ballistic miile subs all nixed at a cost of $7 billion. we'll back the falkland islands will have a bigger army than us. >> in fact, you'll have a smaller navy than the one ronald reagan, president i had a great blessing to serve, campaigned on the premise of rebuilding america's defenses and giving us a 600 ship navy. jimmy carter couldn't cut the military as much as this guy has done. it's jimmy carter on steroids. it's terrible. >> but he hasn't done it and hopefully there will be sober minds in washington to pull this through. around your wrist is a bracelet for a special person. >> yeah, it is. this bracelet was sent to me by the national league of p.o.w. and m.i.a. families. it is for bo birdall, sergeant in the united states army. he's been missing in afghanistan since june 9th -- june 30th of 2009, he's a member of the 25th infantry division out of fort richardson, alaska. he's being held by the haqqani

network in northwestern pakistan and this holiday time, brian, if we could just ask americans to pray for his safe return to this soldier. we know that he's alive. and we pray for his safe recovery soon. >> yeah. for our military to focus on that, he will get out. lieutenant colonel oliver north, very nice thing you just did. have a great thanksgiving for you and your family. >> happy thanksgiving to you and yours, my friend. >> all right. thanks. meanwhile, 11 minutes before the top of the hour. this professor calls our troops killers and says it's shameful to send them care packages and now his fellow professor who is serving seas right now is resigning in protest and he joins us from afghanistan but first, dr. keith ablow has a new theory on what led to the death of caylee anthony. he's here next to explain. sweetie i think you need a little extra fiber in your diet. carol. fiber makes me sad.

>> welcome back. she's one of the most well known mothers in the country and even though casey anthony was acquitted for the murder of her daughter, she was convicted of lying to police. now that she's a free woman, will casey anthony change? my old buddy dr. keith ablow is here and author of the new book, inside the mind of casey anthony, a psychological portrait. you didn't sit down and talk with her but you had access to a lot of interesting information. what kind of information? >> wow, friends, boyfriends, relatives going back to her childhood, documents, thousands of pages of documents in order to create a true psychological profile of this very unusual woman. >> and really, you know, when i'm reading this, it's the mom. it's the mommy issue. mommy and daddy. >> this is a book for every good mother out there, this is a book
3:54 am
to honor them because casey anthony didn't have a good mother. >> how do you know that? >> i know that because everything lines up that way. she had a psychological assassin for her mother, someone who completely disregarded her as a person to the extent she allowed the father in the delivery suite at the foot of the bed watching his granddaughter be delivered at the foot of the bed. to the extent that when their daughter was found not to be working at the store where she said she was working, didn't ever show up there, the mother said leave it alone. the father found out, she said don't even follow up and here's another thing, she was 7 months pregnant and the parents professed not even to know while she was living with them. why? because to them, she didn't exist. she was a ghost. they had completely obliterated her psychologically already. >> is that because she was a bad seed as a kid and doing things like showing up to high school graduation when she actually wasn't even going to graduate? >> it goes back 100 years. if you look at this family for
3:55 am
five generations, you see this tragedy rolling down the tracks. was she the bad seed? no. after all, her mother gave her a graduation party knowing that she hadn't graduated and never told anybody that she hadn't. >> so the theory is that casey what is your theory about what the motive was? >> my theory is at the critical moment, her mother said that's it, you've stolen from your grandfather for a second time, i'm taking custody of your daughter, you're going to leave this house. at that moment, casey anthony said my daughter is not going to have befall her what happened to me in this house. better she go to heaven. >> you do think she killed her daughter? >> what i like to say is that psychologically if you apply psychological reasoning, i'm not going to say she's guilty but that's the theory that fits. >> obviously, during the trial, there was a breakdown with the parental unit and casey. do you think they will ever see each other again? >> i certainly hope not. i would tell any patient of mine, listen, if you can do
3:56 am
nothing else, dry a -- draw a line in the sand and don't let these soul murderers come at you again. >> at the end of the day, she's responsible for her own behavior. >> 1,000%. i don't excuse her, i just explain her. >> good to see you again. the book is called "inside the mind of casey anthony." very, very interesting stuff. coming up, a stunning turn of events in the case of baby lisa missing for more than a month now. the brand new details are top of the hour and then your e-mails are pouring in on this story. i'd love to know what dr. ablow thinks about this, michelle bachmann greeted with the b word in a song on the jimmy fallon show by the band that plays in the jimmy fallon show. we're going to take a closer look. capital one's new cash rewards card gives you a 50% annual bonus! so you earn 50% more cash.

"fox & friends" hour two starts right now. >> hi, this is joe theismann
4:01 am
and i want to send my best out to all our troops this holiday. you're watching "fox & friends." >> live from rockefeller center where they're going to light the tree in like a week or so. it's "fox & friends" for the day before thanksgiving. >> yeah, it's been raining -- it feels like there's a typhoon outside but thank goodness we're indoors. that was a good decision you made in the 60's to have an indoor show. >> thank you. >> the other thing to keep in mind, too, in a matter of moments, we'll have a panel who had really studied the debate last night and they'll drill down on the three most important soundbites to emerge. >> right. exactly right. we got a busy two more hours for you but right now, we'll start things off with juliet huddy in the headlines. >> thank you very much. >> filling in for gretchen. >> that's true. we have a weather advisory on what's typically the busiest travel day of the year. nasty travel conditions are expected today. two major storms dumping rain and snow across the northeast, new york and boston facing major delays, everybody, so watch out. call ahead. moderate delays at airports in washington, d.c. and seattle.
4:02 am
you can expect the delays to get even worse as the day goes on, excuse me, and the problems in the northeast are wreaking havoc across the country. here's the scene late last night in raleigh, north carolina, where passengers arrived 2 1/2 hours late from philadelphia and indianapolis. coming up, we're going to have a live report from washington's reagan national airport, while long lines are already forming there. again, call ahead. a bus carrying a girls high school basketball team crashes sending 17 people to the hospital. wow, look at that. cops believe a drunk driver in a pickup truck is to blame. it happened on the southern -- in southern maryland, 28 girls, four adults on board. they were coming back from a game in virginia. when the bus went off the road. 15 of them were hurt including the bus driver and another adult. the driver of the truck was arrested for drunk driving. all of the girls are expected to be ok, though. no word on the two adults. new details about the florida mother who disappeared the same

4:04 am
the g.o.p. presidential rivals facing off on national security issues, foreign policy and last night's republican debate. attacking the president's policies and each other. but who are the winners? who are the losers? and who was the overachiever? our political panel is here to weigh in. we have editor for townhall.com. tara is here, back, political strategist and former aide to jim mcgreevey. welcome to all of you. you've picked out three moments, one each. let's get to it. katie, with you. what stood out for you? what do you want to share for us? >> i thought mitt romney's comments about obamacare costing a trillion dollars means automatic cuts going to defense costing a trillion dollars is an interesting political point that i'd like to take a look at. >> let's go. let's listen. >> what they're doing is cutting a trillion dollars out of the defense budget. they're cutting a trillion dollars out of the defense budget which just happens to equal the trillion dollars they're putting into obamacare.
4:05 am
>> that's around indications that nothing is emerging from the super committee. >> it's hard to take mitt romney seriously when he talks about obama care. he hit obama on foreign policy in this issue and he's saying obama is putting socialized medicine over the national defense. socialized medicine isn't in the constitution. providing for the common defense is. >> tara, you and i agree on this, you think the moment was newt gingrich talking about immigration. i was shocked by it. >> i was shocked by it as well. i have to say, though, newt gingrich is i have to give it to him. he's a very smart man and he handled it very well. the problem is yet again, it's going to come back and bite him for things he said in the past and other candidates will harp on it. most already have. >> his record and what's already on the record. let's listen to newt last night. >> i don't see how -- the party that says it's the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy that destroys families that have been here a quarter century and i'm prepared to take the heat for saying,
4:06 am
let's be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship. >> john mccain said something similar to that and it destroyed him for a while, had him buried in iowa, correct? >> yes. yes. and i think michelle bachmann has already gone on the attack on newt gingrich for that statement last night. >> right. >> so has mitt romney. mika, let's talk about what you think. you got to go back to ron paul and the patriot act. >> yeah, i think the excitement of the debate has very little to do with who wins and who loses. it's rather entertainment and education and ron paul is there to educate america and the patriot act is one of those elements where you see the difference between his libertarian views and republican views and that's why we see the conflict there. >> let's listen to ron paul talk about how much he hates the patriot act. >> the patriot act is unpatriotic because it undermines our liberty. we have drifted into a condition that we were warned against because our early founders were very clear, they said don't be willing to sacrifice liberty for
4:07 am
security. >> ok, we know where he stood with that. that was pretty much a layup. why do you think that cnn goes to john huntsman and ron paul so far in this contest? >> i think because john huntsman has a lot of foreign policy experience. he worked under the obama administration. obama has a high approval rating when it comes to foreign policy and ron paul is always controversial. he has some views that are very different from the rest of the republican field and they know he's going to create views for them. so i think that people want to hear more about ron paul's controversial statements. >> they do? >> rather than -- >> they find it entertaining. it's entertainment value. >> you think more than mitt romney, they want to hear from ron paul, we've been hearing the same thing for six years. >> i do think one thing about ron paul is he has a very enthusiastic and energized group of supporters. and so they have also been pushing and complaining about the fact that he has not been receiving enough coverage, considering he's won these straw polls and he's polling very well and continues to poll well. so i think that probably was at play as well but i agree, to
4:08 am
your point about john huntsman. he does have a great deal of foreign policy experience and i think he did very well last night. >> he did well but the amount of tension was noteworthy. >> it's more than that. wolf blitzer, his real name. >> not blitz. >> wolf blitzer actually did a great job of control the crowd. they didn't step on top of one another and in many ways, it was a better debate because of that but also an entertaining debate. this is all about entertainment, too. it's about education and entertainment and that's where you have to have characters like ron paul and like cain actually changed the nature of the debates but not just that. newt gingrich changes the nature of the debate. he can't control himself in many ways. and as such, ideas come up and there's no question about it, if he's the smartest guy in the field. that doesn't necessarily make him the best candidate. >> right. governor perry said i think we should have a no-fly zone over syria and i thought mitt romney was pretty quick on his feet. he said really? we should worry more about their tanks. they're not killing people with their planes. you can't prepare for the tank
4:09 am
question. he knows how many, i think he said 5,000. >> you look at the amount of resources to go into the no-fly zo zone, do we have the resources it give syria? it is a ground war. are we going to send troops into syria to fight that war? how many civil wars are we going to get involved in? which i think some of ron paul's position on that are appealing to people. he has a point when he says we're stretched very thin and his policies, ron paul's policies are different from maybe the rest of the field. a lot of g.o.p. candidates have the same -- >> totally different. >> have the same stances on lots of the issues. >> i wonder if totally different but the people just tuning in who aren't as passionate of it as we are, have a million things going on will wonder is that really how the republican party thinks and maybe that was the intention of doing so. listen, we're going to have the panel stick around and talk about this. jimmy fallon greeting michelle bachmann with a song choice that includes the b word. what if she was a democrat? would we have heard the same thing and would the apology have been on twitter?
4:10 am
this professor called our troops killers and now a fellow professor who is serving our country overseas is resigning from that university in protest. he will talk about it live from afghanistan. >> >> according to "the new york times," john huntsman's father has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for ads on tv. he would have gotten involved herbalier but didn't know his son was running.
4:11 am
4:12 am
4:13 am
>> late night controversy for nbc and the jimmy fallon show. the show's house band roots choosing to play an insulting song as g.o.p. presidential candidate michelle bachmann walked on stage. her big intro, the song is called lying, the word rhymes with bass and the other word
4:14 am
rhymes with witch. ok? not good. listen. >> thank you for coming on our show. i appreciate you being here. >> happy to be here, thank you. >> really? with that introduction? you really happy to have her there? amir thompson was the drummer who came up with it. he tweeted about doing this telling everybody to pay attention before the show. what kind of reaction, nbc, of course, apologized. jimmy fallon apologized via twitter. is that enough? katie, tara and micah are here. do you think they're getting away with murder there at nbc? >> they always do. i mean, this is typical behavior towards conservative women, women in general who get to go into politics and michelle bachmann knew this would happen to her going into the race.
4:15 am
this happened with the "newsweek" cover. i think she handled it with grace. she understands she'll be attacked this way but won't be a victim. nbc is going to do what they're going to do and there's not going to be consequences for their actions. >> put it this way, i don't think they should be accepting this, tara, do you? this is not the way you greet somebody. >> i think it was very disrespectful and i don't condone it at all. i think it's terrible actually. i do think, though, unfortunately, there's a double standard in politics for women and women from both political parties are often criticized and now even first ladies and to your point about just conservative women, i don't think that's true at all. look at michelle obama. if you google here, all these images of monkeys come up. the disrespect that's out there is really horrible and i think we need to continue to speak out and criticize when it's on both sides. >> right. it's very little uproar about it. in fact, it wasn't until last night, i dn't even hear the song when she was on our couch yesterday but micah, do you feel as though there's a double standard as well?
4:16 am
>> there's no question but it's a sinking of political humor. this goes right down to the gutter. political humor is about the sharpness of comments. we don't do that anymore. it's the highest form of humor is on late night television. this is -- and i must say, by the way, i do not think miss bachmann even heard the song as she entered because -->> i can't make out the lyrics. >> but also there's an energy when you enter the studio and the energy was there and she was not put off by it. it was important. it didn't alter her presentation. >> it didn't. she actually had a very funny appearance. by the way, here's what jimmy fallon when he heard about the uproar, he tweeted this. i'm honored that bachmann was on our show and i'm so sorry about the intro mess. i guess that's it. i really hope she comes back. there he goes. is that enough? >> you know, i don't think it's enough. i think they need to change their behavior. like we said -- >> get an executive to say something and not on twitter. how about picking up the phone? how about this, i called michelle bachmann yesterday and might go over 140 characters and i apologized for that intro.
4:17 am
and the band member gets traded for a drummer to be named later. >> right. >> all right. and also, do you think nbc as a network should be held accountable? >> yeah, i think the network sets a tone. they have to not just make statements but clearly have actions. we have a problem where we're playing unfairly and it's inappropriate. and it's not funny. that's the worst part. it's not even funny. >> on a side note, i thought congresswoman bachmann was tremendous last night. i thought she was right on her game. >> she's running for another position. she's not running for president. she's running for a secretary post or vice presidency. >> really? she thinks she's running for president. >> thanks so much. great job. >> always a pleasure. >> all right. 17 minutes after the hour. put down the coffee and come to the tv. somehow, the pilot of this chopper manages to walk away from this unbelievable shocking crash that was supposed to be a christmas celebration.

4:23 am
just sent his school his letter of resignation. joining us right now from afghanistan is u.s. army major robert ruffsage. good morning to you, major. >> good morning, steve. >> first of all, let's start with the e-mail that you sent to suffolk university. if you would, sir, read a portion of it. >> i said, i am writing to express my disgust over the comments that professor avery and resign my position as a member of the adjunct faculty. for almost a year, i have been serving in afghanistan in my capacity as an army reserve officer. >> so why did you quit? >> well, the response from the school was disingenuous. they said that he has free -- that he has first amendment rights and of course, everyone in the united states has first amendment rights. but you do not have first amendment rights protect you from your employer telling you that your speech is hate filled and not going to tolerate it. i as a u.s. army officer cannot denigrate the united states

that. doesn't it come down to freedom of speech vs. decency? >> you know, what really bothers me now, steve, is that if -- if everyone there has freedom of speech, where are the other professors exercising their freedom of speech and coming out and standing with me, standing with the soldiers and condemning these statements? >> right. such a good point. have you heard from any of your students? >> i've heard from a lot of students. i've heard from people from all walks of life that basically i've never met before just people who have sought me out to tell me good job, thank you. that's not what i'm looking for. the spotlight needs to be on the school. because no one from the school is condemning his words. if the -- if the dean doesn't agree with what he said, she should say so. >> let me ask you this, major, should the school fire this guy? i'm sure he's got tenure. he'd be tough to fire! >> well, tough, you know, and that's why i did what i did, steve. you know, the only way to bring pressure on a school and tenured
4:26 am
professors is to take away their funds. the funds that gives him that platform to do this hate speech and fill these minds that are coming there for an education with this bunk. i mean, he's equivalent of blaming the military and the soldiers is like blaming firemen for a fire. >> that's a good point. michael graham who is a radio host in boston, he wrote that major was right to resign. let's hope he's at the front of a very long line. i know people right now are watching and they are infuriated at what this guy is getting away with. folks, if you would like to call the suffolk university law dean, camille nelson, here's the phone number. 617-573-8153. -- 8157. there you go. all right. very good. sir, when are you coming home? >> you know, that's a really
4:27 am
good question. i was supposed to be home a month ago. the general has asked me to stay. and i'm actually waiting now to get my papers to get out of here. i'm hoping to be home by christmas but there's a whole lot of people scrambling to get home by christmas as well. >> absolutely. thank you very much for making the time to join us today and telling us your story and thank you, major, for your service. all right. by the way, if you would like to have more information on where to send packages to the troops, log on to fox and friends.com and we've got the information right there. joining us from afghanistan, great. straight ahead, the super committee failed and now our military may have to pay the price. governor rick perry wants heads to roll. that straight ahead and you'll hear what the other candidates had to say coming up next.

4:32 am
what is he going to do? >> going to actually get something done. >> that's what the staff is for, to go out and have all that fun, right? the young people! all right. let's talk a little bit about this. last night over on another network, they had the 11th debate amongst the republicans. it was the national security debate and it was lively and they covered a lot of territory. >> especially super committee. that was the number one story yesterday. even though you're talking about foreign policy and national security, you have to bring up the super committee. you're talking about presidential leadership. here's a look at what they said. >> but it was reprehensible for me for this president to stand in front of americans and to say that that half a trillion dollars, $500 million plus is not going to be on the table and we're just going to have to work our way through it. putting young men and women's life in jeopardy and i will tell you, as a commander in chief, as an american citizen, that is totally and absolutely
4:33 am
irresponsible. even his own secretary of defense said it was irresponsible. as a matter of fact, leon panetta, if he's an honorable man should resign in protest. >> what they're doing is cutting a trillion dollars out of a defense budget. they're cutting a trillion dollars out of a defense budget that happens to equal the trillion dollars you're putting into obamacare. >> i covered ronald reagan's presidency and as you know, and i'll read a quote he wrote in his autobiography this, if you got 75% or 80% of what you were asking for, i take it and fight for the rest later. if you got 75% or 80% of what you wanted, would you make a deal with the democrats, increase some taxes in order to move on? >> it all depends on what the 75% and 85% is. if the things that you have to give up make what you're trying to accomplish harder to do, in other words reduce the deficit, why the republicans are drawing a line in the sand rightfully so, is because what the democrats are attempting to do
4:34 am
is increase taxes which will slow down this economy which will increase the deficit, reduce tax revenues ultimately and increase government payments so you don't work against yourself. >> very good. >> whatever you want to say about rick santorum and where he ends up, he's never stumbled and he's sure of himself and has a great deal of experience. >> they also talked a lot about immigration and some of the comments by newt gingrich where he said that if there's an illegal who has been in this country for 20, 25 years, can you really just kick him out. can you really deport him? the blogosphere is burning up. >> what are you reading? what are they saying? >> a lot of them is prompted by the romney camp that said look at that, newt gingrich is calling for amnesty for 12 million americans. >> right. >> they didn't -- like, for example, mitt didn't turn around and michelle bachmann didn't turn around and jump on newt the way that mitt and perry went at it when perry came up on their stance on illegal immigrants and their tuition breaks for
4:35 am
illegals in his state. >> the word heartless when you're going after people's values is a totally different story. >> 26 minutes before the top of the hour. let's tell you other stuff that's important. >> today is the busiest travel day of the entire year and by all accounts it's setting up to be a real nightmare. two storms, rain and snow in the east and more out west. stacy cohan from our affiliate is live at reagan national airport in washington, d.c. good morning to you. >> well, good morning. yes, there's going to be more travel this year. now, i know some folks say that's actually good news. it shows people are hitting the roads and taking to the skies but it's not great if you're one of those travelers. now, take a look behind me here at reagan national. right now, it's just wonderful. the lines are very short. people are progressing very quickly to where they are. i just checked the cancellation board, we only have a few cancellations that are actually to new york. may be weather related. we're not quite sure. things are going smoothly right now. that's good news. triple a says a 4% increase is expected in travelers this year
4:36 am
but they're going to be paying a lot more. if you bought your ticket, you already know. a 20% increase in air fares, what is expected and if you're hitting the roads which over 90% of americans apparently do, there is also a steeper price at the pump. again, 20% increase. so more folks in the air. more folks on the road. as i've said for years doing this story, just pack a little patience. it's going to be slow. there's also going to be more law enforcement on the road in almost every state. they have special programs because this is a really busy time of year for accidents on the roadways as well. so good news, more people are traveling great for the economy. bad news, your trip will take you a little longer. >> even though you've said you've done this story for years, i feel like it's the first time. it was so fresh. >> well, thank you. >> ok. >> all right. >> that was a compliment. that could have sounded like an insult, brian. >> really? >> you know -- >> no, i think they did a great job. very nice. >> and regarding the weather,
4:37 am
there could be an inch or two or three of rain throughout the northeast so check on line to make sure that your flight coming in or going out is on time. >> yeah, i said call your carrier. go on line. >> that's so analog of you. >> so ridiculous. so 80's. now to the rest of your headlines. come to your tv screen. you have to see this. video. >> unbelievably, that chopper pilot somehow walked away from the crash with just minor injuries. he was helping put up a christmas tree in new zealand when the chopper blades, as you saw it, clipped a wire and spun out of control. no one on the ground was even hurt. look at that. >> meanwhile, add utah to the list of states the obama administration is suing over tough new immigration law. the department of justice says immigration is a federal issue, not a state one. utah's new law requires police to verify the citizenship of
4:38 am
anybody arrested. it also makes it a crime to harbor or transport illegals. arizona and alabama and south carolina also being sued by the department of justice over their immigration laws. brian? >> worker at a big boy restaurant in toledo, ohio, charged with trying to poison customers by pouring medication for pigs into a pot of coffee and a salt shaker. police say a co-worker, if you see him behind the counter of any fast food place, run for your life. no one was served the tainted coffee or salt, thankfully. and that's all i have to read. now we got to go and find out what juliet is eating. >> oh, this sounds amazing. thanksgiving is tomorrow but not too late. take those glasses off! not too late to add a gourmet touch to your holiday meal. >> i'm keeping mine on. chef great scott is live with us in the studio. this is a day when you got to get the stuff. pay close attention. the recipe will be on fox and friends.com. you can have this tomorrow.
4:39 am
>> and have all the 5-year-olds and under help you with this. this will be a great time. >> sweet potatoes. >> this is a sweet potato and this is a yam. yam, not a lot of nutritional value. >> we've been eating the yams thinking it's a sweet potato. >> these are grown in the caribbean, sweet potatoes mainly south america and northern america. i put a yam in for the color and then we put an onion pick, an onion, spanish onion studded with the bay leaf. very strong with cloves. that's what we have here. >> wow. >> i'll take that off and that's done and now i have -- >> boil that how long? >> just until it's done -- >> with a fork. >> here i have oil and butter. one part oil, two parts butter. why? butter has flavor, low smoke point so we add oil to increase that so it doesn't burn. we add our apples and after they're sweated, meaning no color but soft we add our bananas.
4:40 am
>> is this dessert or sweet potato with the marshmallows on it? >> happy thanksgiving. >> calm down, everybody. just wanted to know. just a question. >> we're going to add some cream and then we're going to put some sugar. >> so this is low cal. >> sweet potatoes by the ounce only have 25 calories so it's very food friendly. so here, assuming that's rendered, this is how it comes out, juliet. >> oh! >> that looks good. >> lots of goo. >> this is how we serve it? >> why not? >> this is how we serve it on tv. >> very nice. >> steve, you can put that in a blender. you don't need to worry about making a mess. >> by the way, we should also point out, i notice that over on the side, scott, you've got -- you've got a neuvo beuvo, some of that red wine i see at the store. >> it's great with turkey. i mean, it's very food friendly. >> only 10 bucks a bottle. >> listen, it's great with
4:41 am
everything. >> he said it, i didn't. >> there we go. we'll shut down just for a second and now we'll add our sweet potatoes. we have our onions cooking in there. be careful. we also have cinnamon sticks in the water. and a little salt. sweet potatoes are not sweet at all. >> very good. that's enough for now for our tv purposes? if you like the recipe go to fox and friends.com. happy thanksgiving to everybody. >> happy thanksgiving to you. >> pleasure. >> your e-mails are pouring in on the comment from the debate last night. this one. >> i don't see how the party that says it's the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy which destroys families. >> michelle bachmann pounced on him for it but who will the voters support? what do you think about that comment? bachmann's former campaign manager grading all the candidates coming up next. >> she's america's super nanny and has tips on how to get your kids to behave at the thanksgiving table. you don't want to miss it. >> wait until you hear what her kid's name is.

4:45 am
>> republican presidential hopeful and dare i say leader newt gingrich criticizing his colleagues over their positions on how to deal with illegal immigrants here in america. >> i don't see how the -- the party that says it's the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy which destroys families that have been here a quarter century and i'm prepared to take the heat for saying, let's be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship but by finding a way to create legality so that
4:46 am
they are not separated from their families. >> governor perry? >> so will this hurt the g.o.p. frontrunner with republican primary voters? let's talk to somebody brand new to the fox family as a contributor, fox news political analyst ed rollins who joins us from florida. good morning to you, ed and welcome to the family. >> good morning, gentlemen, how are you? thank you, nice to be part of the family. >> we're doing fine, thank you. >> first, i got to ask you about newt. do you think he pre-thought that and do you think he's prepared to stand behind that statement? >> whether he wants to stand behind it or not, he has to. it's now part of his dialogue. it probably is not the best thing as a frontrunner to come out with. it's not going to be the policy. the american public today with the congress is not going to adopt an immigration policy in the foreseeable future and i would not want to spend the remaining months of this campaign discussing immigration policy as opposed to border security and basically the defense cuts that are far more incredible than any of this. >> sure, camp romney came out, ed, and said he's calling for amnesty.
4:47 am
>> i don't think it's amnesty totally. i think it's a human side that he tried to articulate. at the end of the day, there's other things that are more prevalent and certainly the republicans in the primary want to talk about how do we maintain our defense and how do we create jobs and how do we keep moving forward? >> i have to ask you in the big picture, it will be great sitting next to you in a debate like this. for example, your former client in my humble opinion was extremely strong last night. >> she was great. you know, she's a great -- she's very smart lady. she knows the issues very, very well. i thought she had a good performance. and obviously it may help her somewhat in iowa. >> any candidate do a particularly good job last night? >> you know, romney performs well. i don't think it was his best performance but he performs well. i thought herman cain showed how little he knows about foreign affairs. that's not his strength but the others, the others know the issue. it's a very substantive debate
4:48 am
in front of a very substantive audience, the american heritage foundation are two strong organizations and many in the audience have served in the administrations of nixon, ford, reagan and the bushes so it was not -- it was not a patsy audience. they basically are the best judges of whether these people are substance or not. >> "the wall street journal" did a poll with nbc and they say 52% of the country thinks the president's foreign policy, they approve of it. knowing that going in, do you think it was incumbent on those on the stage to show how bad it actually was and did they do that? >> well, i don't think they did that as effectively as they can. the critical thing is the willingness to basically after we've gone these two long drawn out fights in iraq and afghanistan to basically dismantle our military, you know, the world is a very unsettled place as we see in egypt and around the rest of the middle east today and the to start basically cutting out carrier groups and manpower is a great derogatory thing. we saw this in the post-vietnam
4:49 am
period. it's what reagan inherited in 1981. cost us a lot of money to get back to the standard that we needed and i think that's what we ought to be discussing. >> speaking earlier of michelle bachmann, what did you make of, apparently as she walked out on the jimmy fallon show on monday night, they played a song with a title with the b word in it. and there have been some on the right and some on the left as well that y that nbc should apologize. jimmy fallon tweeted an apology. apparently the band leader, though, knew ahead of time he was going to play that. tweeted watch for this. what do you think about this? >> it's a comedy show. i thought it was disrespectful to her. she's been a very courageous candidate and she's the only woman in this race. she's made as good a campaign as she can. and i think to a certain extent, you shouldn't belittle her. >> yeah and the network should probably jump in and not just the talk show host on twitter in the middle of the night. >> i would agree. >> great to have you on.
4:50 am
it's a tradition nor new contributors to invite us over for thanksgiving. we could get down there if it's ok for you. >> i'd love to have you, happy thanksgiving to you all and look forward to seeing you soon. >> ok, i'm on my way. >> that's fake tv talk. he doesn't really want you? >> oh, really? i'm so naive. >> thank you, ed. family time means temper tantrum time but don't worry, the super nanny is here to help keep your kids in check around the thanksgiving table tomorrow. but first on this date in history back in 1889, the first juke box goes on -- into service as a saloon in san francisco. in 1936, the first illustrated issue of "life" magazine is published and in 1966, the supremes had the number one song in america with "you keep me hanging on."

4:56 am
in advance. plan ahead so if they know they're going to a family or friend's house what to do and let them know who is coming over. >> other key is make sure your kids are thankful and understand that this is not automatic. >> exactly. an attitude of gratitude is so important to get -- to make sure the children have and you can have a little mily circle and talk about what you're grateful for. >> right. >> also, involve your child and remember the reason for the season always. >> yes. >> the premiere of your series "america's supernanny" is november 29th. >> on lifetime. thank you very much. >> your son's name is zepplin but never heard of the band led zepplin. >> full of hot air? >> no, he's not. he's great! >> i imagine well disciplined and well behaved. >> he is. he's at georgetown university sophomore. >> oh! >> congratulations, mom. >> thank you. thank you! >> we'll be watching. >> thanks for your intervention here on the couch. >> ok. >> straight ahead -- >> we saw this video and we had to play it for you. what had these fish literally flipping out?

got children, they got grandchildren, they belong to a church and pay tacks, whether or not -- taxes, whether or not they should be deported. here is the speaker himself. >> i don't see -- party that says it's the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy which destroys families that have been here a quarter century and i'm prepared to take the heat for saying, let's be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship, but by finding a way to create legality so they are not separated from their family. >> juliet: i get he's not talking about people who came in here, who snuck in here six months ago, or a year ago or two years. but those with roots, people who raised their families. it's not a black and white issue and he says he's prepared to take the heat and he is going to be getting a lot of heat. >> brian: comprehensive immigration did not work for president bush. almost destroyed john mccain's candidacy. and newt did come out and say i'm for a comprehensive approach
5:08 am
that starts with sealing the border and he said that. mitt romney immediately responded through a spokesperson that mitt romney is against amnesty and newt gingrich made it very clear he supported amnesty. >> steve: right. then again, some say look, it's really smart politics if you want to win in the general election, you have got to be able to get some hispanic votes and with this, you would think that you probably could. when you look at the brand-new quinnipiac poll, newt gingrich is ahead of mitt romney by 4. the margin of error is 3. when asked who would you vote for, about 20% said don't know. and then you got herman cain who last night, 14%, did not mention 9-9-9, but he did have other interesting things to say. >> brian: yeah, he did. and by the way, i asked this question on twitter. i just said for newt gingrich, do you think he's going to walk back his comments on amnesty or stumbled into it or support it? when talk about herman cain, twitter.com/fox and friends.
5:09 am
when you talk about herman cain, you talk about somebody who nobody expected to ace this exam because he has no important policy experience. corporate persons, big tax background. here he is, but the one thing that you're going to take from this is what he calls wolf blitzer. >> topic profiling. >> if there are areas of the patriot act that we need to refine, i'm all for that, but i do not believe we ought to throw out the baby with the bath water for the following reasons: the terrorists have one objective that some people don't seem to get. they want to kill all of us. soe should use every means possible to kill them first or identify them first. >> just to be precise, mr. cain, i want to give you a chance, is it okay for muslim americans to get more intensive pat-downs or security when they go through airports than christian americans or jewish americans? >> no, blitz. that's oversimplifying it. i happen to believe that if you
5:10 am
allow our intelligence agencies to do their job, they can come up with an approach -- i'm sorry, blitz. i meant wolf. okay? [ applause ] since we're on a blitz debate, i apologize. wolf. what i'm saying is, let's ask the professionals to give us an approach of how we can increase the identification of people that might be a danger to civilians, as well as a danger to this nation. >> thank you, cain. >> juliet: you were so right, brian. wolf blitzer kind of rolled with it. lighten up, everybody. >> steve: so there you see herman cain, charles krauthammer last night said not good for him. watch. >> he's asked about china, he responds 9-9-9. he's asked about medicare, heththth. here is a guy, herman cain, who
5:11 am
said last week, proudly, talking about his not knowing about foreign affairs, we need a leader, not a reader. can you imagine ronald reagan ever saying that or even thinking that? >> brian: it's going to be an uphill battle, but he is a solid third in almost all polls. so it's not done yet. things have somewhat settled down for herman cain after the month. >> steve: i noticed something kind of interesting on real clear politics this morning, there is an item that says governor sarah palin may come out with an endorsement before iowa and according to their calculations, it would be perhaps to endorse newt gingrich. >> brian: newt gingrich? >> steve: that according to real clear politics.com. >> juliet: coming up, michelle bachman greeted by the b word.

5:16 am
insulting lyrics as gop presidential candidate michelle bachman walked out on stage. listen and watch. ♪ >> thank you for coming on our show. i appreciate you being here. >> happy to be here. thank you. >> juliet: the song was called "lying grass witch." you can fill in the grass witch part. jimmy fallon has since apologized for it. is this another poor taste? >> i think of the name of being snooki and edgy. we really become coarse and disrespectful in this country. there used to be pies in the face. there used to be banter. now we try some of the harshest ridicule and if we can make fun of a conservative woman, all the better.
5:17 am
that is demeaning and disrespectful and disgusting. nbc should apologize today. they haven't apologized. last night jimmy fallon sent out some kind of tweet and said oh, we'd love to have her back on the show. sorry for that mess last night. >> juliet: his initial tweet was something about oh, sorry, quest love thompson, the guy that you saw with the pick in his hair, he's grounded. it was sort of like a ha, ha, ha, blowing it off. but here is the thing, pies in the face were cool back then. pies in the face isn't cool now. we're edgier now. >> edgy has become the new disrespect. snarky means to be disgusting. i didn't think it was acceptable in any company, private or public, to call a woman a dog in heat. i didn't think it was respectful or edgy to say the worst possible things that we can about a person we welcome on
5:18 am
their couch at their desk and then have a private joke with the audience at her expense. that's wrong. >> juliet: you hear the banting, la, la, la, la. they're doing it in place of words that are also very disrespectful to women. here is the thing, so jimmy fallon allowed quest love to talk last night. so here is what quest love had to say. >> jimmy, jimmy. >> what's up, quest? >> i didn't know we were doing shout outs. can i do one? >> sure. go ahead. >> i want to give a shout out to the new roots album that's called "undone." that's the hottest album we've ever done. the first one is on itunes. i promise, you won't be disappointed. quest love, and i would never steer you wrong. >> juliet: he promoted his album. >> where is his apology? the days of jack par and steve allen and johnny carson are over. we used to laugh with our leaders. we used to laugh with people that were out there in the
5:19 am
public venues. now let's laugh at them, especially if it's our own precious secret joke. the other thing that's interesting is quest love is a big, big star in music. he's a dj, he's a musician, a drummer. he's a music journalist and he's got a couple of million followers on twitter. he also on his twitter shows a picture of him with president obama. when we see this, why was this woman set up in this way? obviously the president knows nothing, nothing about this. but if you're going to be funny, if you're going to be musical, be funny, be musical. don't be hurtful. don't be disrespectful. when you show a picture of the president, you're obviously going to be bringing politics into this thing. >> juliet: it was disgraceful and i think a lot of people on both sides of the aisle agree with that. is there any legal ramification? >> no, there is no legal ramification.
5:20 am
i love watching jimmy fallon. he's so funny and he seems like such a nice guy. they screwed up big time. they should back off of it big time, move on, let's keep watching the show, but let's keep watching shows that reflect who we are on this thanksgiving. we're decent people. >> juliet: if you do a shout out, maybe you should have done it to michelle bachman. just saying. up next, we will continue the conversation about jimmy fallon's attack on michelle bachman. senator kelly ayotte will weigh in next. she's been attacked for her politics many times. and is your husband ticking you off? well, well, stick around for this story. a wife who put her husband up for sale on craigslist. was he worth anything? that's coming up. mine was earned over the south pacific in 1943.

call them birds, free birds. president obama just hours away from pardoning two thanksgiving turkeys, liberty and peace. you're looking at footage from last year's pardon. this year, both turkeys hail from minnesota. they're among 30 birds up for the reprieve. sorry about the other ones. and why did the salmon cross the road? to get to the other side. these fish swimming up the street near seattle. the area flooded by more than three inches of rain and even more is on the way. so drivers will have to keep an eye out for salmon on the road. normal. >> steve: meanwhile, gop presidential candidate mitt romney is putting her on his possible short list for vice president of the united states. >> brian: are you talking about senator kelly ayotte? >> steve: i am talk being her. >> brian: welcome, senator. thank you for joining us today. >> thank you. great to be with you. >> brian: first off, your decision romney, knowing that there is so many other viable candidates out
5:25 am
there. jon huntsman needs your state. why mitt? >> i watched this field closely and i think governor romney is in a position where he's got that background as an effective business leader, governor, turned around the olympics, and he's the person i think that could beat barak obama, which is so important for our country. >> steve: sure. well, a couple of days ago on the sean hannity show, mitt romney himself was talking about potential vice presidential running mates and your name came up. he said, probably 15 names, including kelly ayotte. when you heard that, what did you think? >> well, i thought my focus is representing new hampshire and that's a real privilege. but i think his point was that we have a very deep bench in terms of the gop. so many good leaders out there right now that are ready to make sure that we turn our country around. >> steve: but for you personally, that's cool! >> well, certainly i appreciated him mentioning me, but my focus is on serving new hampshire. i just got elected last november and we've got to get our fiscal
5:26 am
house in order in washington. so we need a republican president to lead on that issue and i'm looking forward to working with that president. >> brian: as a republican, you know what happened to senator john mccain when he brought up amnesty and a path to citizen system and president bush's push for comprehensive immigration reform failed as two conservative republicans. now you have newt gingrich who, by the way, a dead heat in some polls in new hampshire saying, look, i'm for those people who are here long-term, illegal immigrants here long-term. i'm for leaving them together as a family union and not kicking them out of the country to boil it down real quick. what's your reaction to that? how will that fly with other conservatives? >> i thought that governor romney was very clear on immigration last night. he doesn't support amnesty. i agree with him on that. we don't want to create incentives for people to come here illegally. we're a country of immigrants. let's make sure that we have a way for people who want to contribute to get here legally, but let's secure our borders and
5:27 am
not have amnesty or encourage people to be here. i support governor romney on this. >> brian: right now you can not support newt gingrich's feeling of leaving the long-term illegal immigrant families together in the u.s.? >> yeah. i think governor romney's position is stronger on this in terms of our immigration policy. >> steve: all right. senator, before you go, i want to ask you about something that's been burning up our in box today and that is a couple of nights ago, jimmy fallon, who hosts a late night show across the street at 30 rock, he had as his guest michelle bachman. there she is coming out. well, unbeknownst to her, there was a song being played with a very inappropriate title and uses the b word in it as well. just kind of interested in your reaction. apparently jimmy fallon and the guy who leads the band have apologized on twitter. is that enough? >> well, i think it's inappropriate and disrespectful.
5:28 am
i'd like to see the network also apologize. the bottom line is that she's running for president. she deserves the respect when she comes on the show. we've seen this with conservative women in the past, the librale media can be very tough on them. we've seen it with sarah palin and others. they should be straightforward and apologize on this. >> brian: senator ayotte, we look forward to talking to you again. >> thanks a lot. have a happy thanksgiving. >> steve: you as well. straight ahead, we're going to be back with breaking news. the latest weekly jobless numbers in the news room. >> brian: watch. this unbelievable. a chopper goes crashing down. they're trying to finish off a christmas tree. everybody is okay. the pilot survives. we'll find out what happened and why. >> steve: plus, picked out in the hundreds, this high school marching band is one of 11 that will be in the macy's thanksgiving day parade tomorrow. they perform the national anthem next right here on "fox & friends."

5:33 am
they were estimating 390,000. slightly up. so just a little bit more than expected. but under 400, which is mildly encouraging. >> steve: kind of, but it's still the holiday season now and to be out of work, it's tough. >> brian: let's move ahead. for those americans still working, there are still bad news coming your way. you may soon see smaller paychecks all because of super committee failed miserably. >> juliet: steve centanni has details. >> good morning. in another one of his campaign style trips that was officially not a campaign trip, president obama went to new hampshire yesterday, the first in the nation primary state. in manchester, new hampshire, he stopped in at julian's corner kitchen to make his case for an extension of the payroll tax break that expires at the end of next month. that's something that the super committee was supposed to deal with and didn't. the president wants to extend and expand the tax break and challenging republicans to stick by their pledge of not raising taxes and to approve the
5:34 am
extension when it goes up for a vote in congress next week. it's yet another part of the president's overall jobs bill that's now being offered to congress in bite size pieces. speaking at a local high school, the president told republicans, don't be a grinch. don't raise taxes during the holidays. >> the american people are with us on this. it's time for the folks who are running around spending all their time talking about what's wrong with america to spend some time rolling up their sleeves to help us rebuild america and rebuild our middle class and give young people opportunity. >> the president was in new hampshire the same day his republican challengers were meeting for yet another televised debate. the gop field divided over the issue of the tax cut deduction. meantime, an extension of unemployment benefits is also set to expire at the end of next month. that's something the president
5:35 am
supports. he wants to extend the unemployment benefits, but both of these items were supposed to be rolled into the grand deal the super committee was going to reach and they didn't reach any deal. so the future of these two items up in the air this morning. back to you guys. >> steve: still no deal. steve, we thank you very much. all right. he's out in the weather. let's go to your extreme weather alert on the busiest travel day of the year. take a look, we've got heavy travel delays if philly, atlanta, chicago, at portland in oregon, they've got moderate delays because we've got two storms. one in the east, one in the west. i've got another panel that shows you if you're in or out of boston's logan, heavy travel delays there. same thing for la guardia, jfk, and newark here in the new york city area. washington, d.c., dulles and also reagan national, moderate delays. moderate delays as well in the seattle area. so if there is any question,
5:36 am
head on-line to check with your air carrier to make sure they are on time. chances are, if you're on the edges, there could be a delay. >>uliet: calling is probably not the best idea 'cause you'll never get through. to the rest of your headlines, stop what you're doing, you have to see this video. unbelievable. the pilot of that chopper somehow walked away from the crash with just minor injuries. apparently he was helping put up a christmas tree in new zealand when the chopper blades clipped a wire. there were a lot of wires there, and spun out of control. nobody on the ground was hurt either. >> steve: a woman attacked on a busy street in boston in broad daylight, even more shocking, nobody stopped to help her. the surveillance video so disturbing, we had to blur out some of the stuff. one suspect tries to grab her purse, then three more join in,
5:37 am
punching and kicking her as she struggles to hold on to her bag. the thugs eventually gave up and walked away, not one single person even tried to stop it. police now asking the victim or witnesses to come forward to help them figure out who did this. >> juliet: dr. keith ablow says it has something to do with the mind set thinking it's not actually happening. it's fake. a wife fed up with her husband's video game habit tries to dump him on craigslist and she offered him up for a small price. actually for no price. >> men saying oh, i'm house broke. i'm trained and i'll trade him places. >> suddenly the thought was serious and trying to give it marital counseling. >> juliet: the wife says she did it as a joke, but the response has been huge. hubby isn't happy about it. one woman offered a bag of skittles for her man. he's now trying to work out his gaming addiction. just let them play their little

5:47 am
>> steve: why was that a mistake? >> it was a mistake because of iowa. there is a very strong anti-illegal immigration contingent among the people who show up for the iowa caucuses. within the beltway, people are saying, oh, that was a go answer by gingrich. look at the comments coming out of iowa from republican sources and that's where gingrich hopes to make his breakthrough. he has to do well in iowa in order to compete in new hampshire where mitt romney is doing very well. what did gingrich say in that comment? that came very close with his inhumane, antifamily slant on the tough position on immigration. he came awfully close to rick perry's heartless comment, which as we know cost perry enormous problems. >> steve: sure. we like to have you here on the post-game show to do grading. you are a teacher. you give newt gingrich and ron paul the same grade, a b plus. why? >> plus they came across well overall.
5:48 am
i think to someone who watched the whole debate, gingrich was his usual articulate self. i gave paul a b plus. nobody got an a in last night's debate. i just -- maybe it was prethanksgiving fever, but i just didn't give anybody an a. i gave paul a b plus because he adds diversity and serves as a foil for the other candidates. it would be an awfully dull debate if everybody agreed on 90% of the issues, 90% of the time. >> steve: meanwhile, mitt romney, who is one of the national front runners and jon huntsman got the same grade. we know why mitt romney has been doing so well. but why did you give jon huntsman a b? >> because it was a foreign policy debate. that's really his area of strength. he can shine there and there is less ideological difference between the candidates. huntsman is considered more moderate in many ways than some of the other candidates on some domestic issues and he's not doing well on account of it. but he showed in that debate, he
5:49 am
did reasonably well. i don't know that it's going to help him that much. and romney really didn't stand out the way he has in prior debates. i'd say if it -- i wouldn't call it his worst debate. he didn't do badly, but he certainly didn't elevate himself the way he has in many other debates. >> steve: joining us from the center of politics from the university of virginia, thanks very much, larry sabato. take the next couple days off. >> you have a great thanksgiving. close your eyes and you will swear it's frank sinatra singing. ♪ and much more than this ♪ ♪ i did it my way >> steve: open your eyes, it's not sinatra. it's the winner of "america's got talent." he's going to perform live. first let's check in with bill hemmer. hello. >> hello. steve, happy turkey day. >> thank you. >> bad choice of machine to
