marion, nil >> illinois? >> bob: that's where i'm going to visit my family. i didn't realize this was a personal weather spot. >> bob: sorry. >> one system to watch over the weekend is across the northwest. in the northeast it's clearing out nicely. we have weather delays, laguardia, jfk. if you are headed to the airport call ahead. the airport bar might be the place to be. there is the radar -- [ laughter ] bob, i know so well. the thanksgiving day forecast, nice across the country. l.a. to boston. if you look ahead, i know greg gutfeld wants to know what the weather is like shopping on black friday. >> greg: you know it. >> it's mostly sunny across the east coast. we have a cold front moving across the upper midwest, bringing cold air and windy conditions. unsettled across the northwes northwest. travel troubles getting home over the weekend.
that is a concern heading to saturday across the gulf coast and great lakes where we will see heavy rain. moving to the ohio river valley and northeast by sunday. folks trying to get home from thanksgiving. we will keep an eye on the weather for you. >> bob: janice, how is the 7:15 xl out of new york? >> i don't do like traffic. or -- >> dana: all your fans will show up. >> bob: the other thing to find out, mall of america for greg in minnesota. >> right. just e-mail me all of your requests and i'll personalize them for you. >> bob: good. keep away from solnydra. >> i do fair and balanced weather. east coast and west coast. >> bob: you do. >> dana: we love it. >> bob: we know we do it here. uh-huh. >> dana: thank you. we'll be back with you later in the show to check in. now the top story. the g.o.p. debate showdown was last night in iowa. newt gingrich -- it was in d d.c. -- getting the most attention for comments on immigration. >> the party that said is the party of the family is going
to adopt an immigration family that destroys families that have been here a quarter century. i'm prepared to take the heat for saying let's be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship but finding a way to create legality so they are not separated from their family. >> dana: it was in d.c. but iowa is on everybody's minds. see the transition? speaker, former speaker gingrich has been in the lead of late. andrea, immigration is a hot button issue that rick perry had trouble with beforehand. are people being oversensitive or do you thi he has a real problem here? >> andrea: people are being oversensitive. in primary, especially the republican primaries candidates feel like they need to say a certain thing to appease the base. some of the things they're saying might not be workable. what newt gingrich said was courageous. something that might look good on a blackboard might not look good in a state with a lot of
illegals. families have been in the united states to decades. it doesn't make sense to ship everybody out. a lot of people would agree with that, a lot of people don't. but at least newt had courage to put together something that is real. >> dana: he said he would be willing to take the heat. will he get some of it? >> eric: he will get a lot of heat. defer to you guys that spend time watching polls. he just alienated the western half of iowa. steve king represents western iowa. steve king can't get behind this. he is against this exact immigration stance. when rick perry did it, everybody said uh-oh, what will we do with it? perry took a beating for it. newt's numbers will go down. he needs to come out of the box in iowa strong. he won't do that. >> dana: one thing we said earlier in the summer rick perry needed to come out and give an expansive speech on his position on immigration. do you think newt should do
the same thing or maybe we need a debate just on immigration? >> bob: the response from gingrich, you're right. it was courageous. willald, forgot the first name. willard's mitt romney. as usual, he went in the tach for the right wing. the others, michele bachmann, the rest of them mouth off stuff. gingrich i think may have given republicans an out. republicans needed some way to attract hispanics. the secret is iowa has the largest percentage of hispanic of any midwe shall state. >> eric: eastern half. the western half is white. >> bob: but they go to caucuses, too. >> eric: i understand that. he alienated half the state. >> andrea: i think he knew exactly what he was doing. newt knew what he was doing. the candidates do not speak, particularly somebody as seasoned as newt gingrich without looking at polls. >> dana: do you think he thought before he spoke? >> greg: i think he was prepared. what he is trying to say, i
can kind of follow. imagine two people breaking in your house, one person steals something but the other person fixing your leaky pipes. he is saying separate the people and make sure bad people go away. that's what we want to do, but we can't do it without a process. the problem with immigration you can't see them both until you flood the hole. >> eric: he said perry was wrong and alienated the base saying -- you didn't say heartless. but what newt said -- >> dana: i agree. can we get to -- i want to, because a debate on a lot of different issues. uncandidate, held steady if not small per seven tage is ron paul. he has a particular position on foreign aid. let's listen to what he said. >> we are in big trouble.
nobody wants to cut anything. if you keep spending money in foreign aid and go to libya without consulting with the congress, the biggest threat to the national security is our financial condition. >> dana: what do you think? >> greg: when he talks he reminds me of a kid that cam back from a creek where he saw a giant monster. hands constantly moving. it's godzilla. i don't even listen anymore. >> dana: his supporters are active and all over him today, defending and supporting him. one thing is mitt romney has steady base of support. others went up and down but ron paul has been steady. >> bob: the one thing i'll say he may come in third in iowa.
be careful and watch this. he has 13-14%. slowly creeping up. by the way, smith, the fella you talked about from the eastern -- steve king. he was in the used equipment business. i'm not sure he knows too much. >> eric: steve kingdomnates the western half of iowa. >> bob: he dominates. congressional district -- >> eric: it's been a red half of the state for -- >> bob: i shouldn't go off. i think the point about ron paul is he is going to hurt somebody. >> greg: the best part of the debate is when gingrich, asked ron paul about. >> profiling. >> dana: on profiling. we have the sound bite. listen to what the speaker said. >> speaker, just to clarify, you wouldn't change the patriot act? >> no, i would not change it. i'm not aware of any specific change it needs. i'll strengthen it. >> the patriot act is unpatriotic, it undermines our liberty. i'm concerned as everybody is
about the terrorist attack. timothy mcveigh was a vicious terrorist and was arrested. >> timothy mcveigh succeeded. that's the whole point. >> dana: one thing that was interesting, ron paul having the point he made. this past sumer the patriot act was reauthorized 99-0 in the senate. i don't know if it's still a point that salient with people. >> andrea: i don't think it is. i don't think it is for either party to make. the clip you played before with ron paul talking about how dangerous the deficit is. these are statements that make people look at ron paul go yes, yes! that is factual. but then he says other things like this, you sort of question him. particularly, after a guy tried to blow up new york city. >> greg: like not having a gripe with us. we weren't in afghanistan when they sent planes -- >> bob: a fast closing point. mitt romney played the front runner last night and played it safe. everybody else picked their game up, as they do getting this close to iowa. i think romney made a terrible
mistake playing it safe. now is not the time if you are a weak front runner to be safe. >> dana: i would say that the think pink influence on the debate was a good one. bob says president obama has g.o.p. cornered on payroll taxes. we'll debate that next. also, don't forget to e-mail us at email@example.com. >> greg: c'mon! no football, you people. >> eric: football! >> greg: jeez! ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] butter. love the taste, but want to cut back on f?

that the essence of the american dream, if you work hard, if you stick to it, you can make it. feels like that is slipping away. >> andrea: i understand you said that is unbelievable. during the time we were playing the segment. it's not just this. we know he tacked less on different things. the defense budget. we discussed this on the show. obama care, the stimulus, no signs of him moving to the middle. not so mart an election strategy. >> dana: but maybe an honest one. this is who he is, fine. i'd rather know it now than think he will be a moderate president. >> andrea: eric is nodding his head. he knows he's a moderate. >> eric: he is far left, staying far left. play the game of being centrist. which he will probably do up until election.
if he is re-elected he will head for the hills. he is a social and fiscal, socialist progressive liberal. >> andrea: i saw you nodding, too. it seems like he needs the doom and gloom scenario like he did in 2008. but things are so bad, everybody is lazy, only i can save everybody again. >> greg: he gave a shout out to the occupy movement. there is a reason i ran. what is next? cast of "jersey shore"? oakland raider fans? anyone following the career can connect the dots -- >> bob: can i say something here? >> eric: no. we have an important guest to get to right now. robert? are you there? >> for all of my friends on "the five," how are you doing? >> bob: the original obama. >> what is going on, my man. >> listen, i love everybody on "the five." i love my buddy bob beckel.

true. it's not a level playing field. >> eric: what he said or what he does? >> bob: no. if you jumped on what he said. he instinktively said something, "people want to be able to achieve the american dream." >> eric: by working. dabshat's not why i jumped on it. he said people feel things are slipping away. as a leader you, you have two choices. take pass of division. and make things seem worse than they are or inspire people. he has chosen the wrong path. >> andrea: this is different from the path in 2008. >> bob: do you think things are slipping away? there is no job opportunities. >> bob: give me my football. >> the thing that disturbing people is he is down with the ows crowd. the message is irrelevant. he called them out and every republican should run that in a campaign ad.
