11:00 pm
night. makeure you go to greta and just talk to us. good night from washington, d.c.. go to in c, institution and in life. see you then. ♪ ♪ >> dana: hello, everyone. i'm dana perino with greg gutfeld, bob beckel, kimberly guilfoyle, eric bolling. we're in a different studio for the week and it's still 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." tonight, report of democratic want to abandon white working class voters in 2012. we have details. plus -- >> i seen him smoking weed over there in his lunch hour. union workers caught on tape smoking dope and drinking in their lunch hour. guess what? they have not been fired yet. then miley syrus caught on camera talking about drug use. we will play you the rest of
11:01 pm
the tape. it's a good one. we promise. "the five" starts right now. ♪ ♪ >> dana: our top story tonight, democrats point to the message to the white working class. the "new york times" reports today, "democratic operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class." let's just say, greg, if you are the press secretary, and you wake up and that is the lead, that is the quote in the "new york times," you probably think it's not going to be a great day. >> greg: i would immediately go to and see if there are openings and jobs that aren't as stressful. this is a great strategy. what they are talking about is semily pairing white academics with poor minorities. so what you are doing is pairing people on government assistance with people who want them to stay on government assistance. this is how it works. beneton ad.
11:02 pm
>> dana: one thing that has been happening in america over the past -- this feels weird to see this. [ overtalk ] >> dana: we'll have an interrogation of you. this is what this is about. let me ask about -- before we get to bob, because we definitely want his take on what the democrats are thinking and how they took this article. manufacturerring jobs in america. the declining over time. not necessarily coming back. they have a little bump here and there. but the one thing that could really help is good strong energy policy. but yet, we keep stumbling on that as well. >> eric: you make a good point. the only real strength in manufacturerring has been in the energy sector. you talk about north dakota, over and over again, a shortage of people to fill 20,000 jobs. rick perry has the right idea. he selike this is what we need to do. the only comprehensive energy policy to create jobs. that is probably one way to go. we also have, dana, friday they will release the latest unemployment number. it will look like 100,000 new jobs created only.
11:03 pm
not enough. unemployment is probably going to stay at 9%. clearly not doing the right thing. >> dana: the "new york times" report they're wrote this piece about the democratic strategy, he talks about how do you try to go after the hispanic vote? and is it a good strategy to try to pit the white working class voters against the hispanic voters? >> kimberly: i wouldn't necessarily do that. i think you are treating them as if theyre two separate disrate groups that won't have things in common. believe me, they will have a hard time with hispanics and working class families that value traditions, value having a job, having a hard time with unemployment. these are the same type of people. they share more in common than you think. they would like to get votes from both sectors but they're being realistic they might have to modify their approach. i don't believe for a minute they'll try to abandon them all together. >> dana: bob, take us through, if you were in the
11:04 pm
campaign headquarters, obama campaign headquarters this morning what do you think the reaction to this article was? >> bob: first, let me say i'm dressed in black, black friday was the greatest black friday i had in history. this is the beginning of the obama recovery. >> eric: you're opening a pawnshop. >> bob: that is correct. let me just say the "new york times" is known for printing all the news that is fit to print. let me tell you, times, that is not fit to print. the reality is let's go back to when this happened. the democrats lost white blue collar worker in '84 and tried periodically to try to get them back. it became clear in the 1990s we were never going to get majority of the voters back again. they voted the republican enough times that once you voted enough times you tend to setle in that vote. the key here is not abandoning the blue collar voters. what we call, what we say in the political business is you minimize a demographic group against you.
11:05 pm
so we tried to keep the losses among blue collar white democrats between 15 and 19%. if we do that, we can survive. we have a big enough number of the minorities and single women. but we have never going to get majority for the foreseeable future, but the key is in 19 -- excuse me, in 2010, the democrats lost that group by 30 points. that 30 points we could not sustain. i don't care how many votes we got in the other group. the idea that the suggestion by edsall and these people we are abandoning the blue collar voter is silly, uneducated, uninformed and doesn't deserve to be put in the "new york times." it's wrong. i'm giving you a little tutorial there on the only thing i know. refer to the rest of you on that. the idea that somehow you dismiss an entire demographic of that is silly. >> greg: the closest thing democrats get to working class people is the guy that emptied
11:06 pm
the waste paper basket in the teacher's lounge. >> bob: is that your contribution on a serious discussion of politics? >> greg: it's accurate. >> dana: the best weapon to get the single woman vote is bob beckel. >> kimberly: i thought it was bill clinton. >> bob: the reality is we still get around 44% of the blue collar workers. >> eric: do you mean abandon -- do you mean abandon or focus money on other -- >> bob: they said in the story abandon. >> dana: probably too strong a word. >> kimberly: erroneous. >> eric: you spend as much money in the campaign minimizing your losses as you do maximizing your wins. >> bob: we'll spend as much money on blue collar democrats as we do on hispanics. because we can't afford to lose one set. >> bob: bob has it figured out. that article is erroneous.
11:07 pm
it doesn't make sense. you are not going to abandon a group and telegraph, hey you, we don't care. c'ya, wouldn't want to be you. they want to replace it with the college educated socially liberated, progressive come out and give them the cash. >> greg: they join the upper middle class socially liberal with the down scale group. that is what they used. the fact is the down-scale group embraces repressive norms the other group doesn't. the people are more conservative. >> bob: they refer to the democratic coalition, roosevelt coalition built around the heavy blue collar majority votes. that's when the nation was 34% union. now you have to put together with the democrats and the various group of demographics, are the fastest growing demographics. the ones shrinking are the republican demographic.
11:08 pm
>> eric: hispanic, the americans in poverty. that is what we are seeing here. that's what it is. if you watched "60 minutes" last night you see explosion of children in poverty. >> kimberly: true. >> eric: if the blue collar worker, white or non, isn't pushing away from barack obama, nobody is. he should be. >> bob: they are. poverty is something that our party focused on for a long time. the sad part is there is a rule that people who are unemployed or uneducated don't vote. they are making mistake abandoning that group. you need to say if you, you know, if you say 17 million or 14 million people out of work, it's true historically that a small percentage of them will vote. >> dana: another group everyone wants to go. awant to get to another subject before break. colin powell said a tea party candidate wouldn't somebody
11:09 pm
who could win. let's listen to him. >> compromise is how the country was founded. unless two people who disagree don't find a way to reach out and make compromise you don't get con sense sus allowing you -- consensus allowing you to move forward. tea party view of no compromise whatsoever is not a point of view to eventually produce presidential candidate who will win. >> dana: i found that curious, because a couple of examples are if you look at the healthcare bill, and how it pushes through, there was no reasonable compromise offered for republicans to have input. then the free trade i greement served on silver platter on obama administration for three years to get a compromise. when the republicans passed it, they decided not to do a signing ceremony on it. last week, the super committee, what the democrats could have done, missed an opportunity to take the republican word and say great, you want more tax revenue? you're willing to close the
11:10 pm
tax loopholes? great, we will take you up on that. if you want to say that the tea party is not willing to compromise, fine. i don't think you can say the democrats have been willing partners. >> greg: also, what is he talking about? the tea party has been on a coffee break for a year. they haven't -- they are not on the street defecating against the cop cars. that is another group. >> bob: 65% negative. you cannot win with a tea party platform that is instranzient and refuses to move off their position. if i could say this, the democrats did make some mistakes in the super committee. but the idea that the republicans offered up a revenue. we'll give you revenue if you keep rich people tax break from george bush. >> eric: you want to see a tea party win? by the way, romney is 20%. newt can't get over 20%. that means a group of conservatives out there waiting for the right candidate. what is bubbling up, i don't know if you listen to this. conservatives for sarah pac,
11:11 pm
trying to get her in. i tell you who would give romney a run, sarah palin. >> bob: obama would crush her. >> dana: when president obama says you shouldn't increase, you should not end the bush tax cuts because it will hurt small businesses and six months later changes his position, that is bull. maybe we'll debate it later. coming up, newt gingrich takes the gloves off and calls mitt romney a liar. we'll play you the tape. don't forget you can e-mail us at ♪ ♪

♪ ♪ >> bob: sorry. eric paid for that seat, by the way. welcome back to "the five." this morning, from charleston, south carolina, newt gingrich took the fight to mitt romney. >> i wouldn't lie to the american people. i woun't switch my positions for political reasons. it's perfectly reasonable to change your position, the facts change if you see new things you didn't see. everybody has been there. ronald reagan did it. it's wrong to go around and
11:16 pm
adopt radically different positions. based on your need. then people have to ask well, will you tell me next time? >> bob: eric, i think you are as good a co conservative as anybody. does he have a point? >> eric: this is like rosy o'donnell telling oprah she's skinnier than she is. all i can think of is newt on the couch and nancy pelosi saying everyone should get together and consider climb change a problem. two nonconservatives. >> greg: but oprah has been struggling with her weight. she has been trying. rosy accepted her weight. that is not a fair comparison. >> bob: if you have two people who have had a history of rel tevly moderate republican positions including romney on immigration -- i
11:17 pm
take it that newt is trying to position himself to the right of romney. romney is trying to get to the right himself. neither has substance to get there. >> dana: many conservatives sit there holding their heads in their hands thinking can this be happening? the endorsement is a big deal for newt. it gives him validity. maybe helps the fundraising. the paper hasn't always picked the winner. they only got it right two of the last seven times but i think there is somebody hurt here more than anybody else. perry. >> eric: why? >> dana: romney didn't expect to get it anyway. >> eric: in new hampshire? >> dana: they didn't endorse him in 2008. they editorialized against him. perry back in august, rember he came out and he spent time in new hampshire. he was there.
11:18 pm
perry was the conservative and he was not even mentioned in the article. >> why would they endorse newt gingrich? >> one of the newspapers that matter still in american politics. the reason is starting today, they write editorials every day until election day. they take someone else on. i think they will make mitt romney's life miserable. it is -- they are, the front page. front page. we have been through it. on the wrong or right side of it. but it's free public tisty. >> dana: it's significant because -- >> kimberly: he has to have the daily things to deal with. strong voice. well respected. they didn't choose him last time. they have editorial credibility and they said we didn't like you last time. we're not picking you this time. they went with mccain before. now with newt. it's significant. >> bob: the other question is i assume that gingrich got
11:19 pm
himself a pass. he does this thing and in iowa it's a big issue. >> eric: it's an issue everywhere. >> bob: but in 60 days we have votes there. less than that. so i guess my question is he does it and then he has thanksgiving and then the "manchester union leader." he got breaks here. >> dana: everything is going his way. >> greg: what is pushing newt gingrich there is a desire to see him debate, not necessarily win. when he made the joke that obama can bring teleprompter he will need an imax teleprompter. newt gingrich is going to school him. it will be so bad he will deliver enough sympathy to win the election. >> bob: somebody elig said nice things about newt. do we have bill clinton up here? >> he is articulate and tries
11:20 pm
to think of a conservative version of an idea that will solve a legitimate problem. for example, last night, i watched the national security debate last night. newt said two things that would make an independent voter say i've got to consider that. >> bob: that is the key. newt made independent voter statements. we would prefer to run against gingrich than romney. i think bill in his own way there is a good old boy, he's just fine. from my stand point, newt is terrific. >> eric: i think you're right that the obama administration would rather run against anybody but romney. seen the mitt versus mitt ad? >> dana: the white house is exciting they are going to run against romney so that's why they're making time and money ads against -- >> bob: i'm not sure it's
11:21 pm
wasting. >> dana: it's too early.>> all of us know about, know a lot about gingrich over the years. when they saw the nancy pelosi it might be the first time they saw it. >> bob: i'm told to tease. we're off here. the studio is too hot. eric is in the anchor chair. coming up, finally justice on wall street. fat cats may not get as big a bonus this year. poor baby. thank you, eric. appreciate that. p@?ñm ñoy÷ó if you've just signed up for medicare or will soon,

well, tonight's most controversial story, ohio officials have removed a 200-pound 8-year-old boy from his mother's custody. social workers placed the boy in foster care and said the mother was not doing enough to control his weight. so greg, you have a special affection for what? >> greg: no, i just, i think that our nation's backbone is chubby kids. maybe the kid is too big. or a 45-year-old massacreraiding as 8-year-old boy. we have seen it happen before. who is to say that foster care in ohio is superior than a parenting environment? the kid is going to be a bengals fan. >> kimberly: my goodness. great point. that would be a big problem. look what happened to hemmersh right? bengals fan. >> dana: i don't know enough about her or the mom, to say whether or not she was being neglectful. but one thing that the medical authority says, the state authority said she was not following the medical advice and her son lost some weight and gained it rapidly back.
11:27 pm
but taking them out of an environment where he is loved with the mom and siblings would probably be worse. >> bob: i think this is exactly the right thing to do. no different in my view if they caught him doing crack. the mother was warned. they should have taken him to my house. i was around that at 8 years old. but they didn't. look what happened to me. these kids cannot be left at that weight and get the kind of illnesses they were projecting he is going to have. why not take him out? unsafe environment. no different to have him in a house of crack addicts. >> greg: the problem is the criteria. how big is too big? >> bob: there was medical studies done on the kid and they warranted the mother if they keep the kid at this weight he will begin to get very, very sick.
11:28 pm
>> eric: what about a kid that eats a lot of junk food? isn't that just as dangerous as obese kid? maybe kids that are lining the arteries with plaque? the bottom line, this is the parent's responsibility, you can't leave that to a government official. >> dana: if the kid was starved together we wouldn't even have a segment obit. the controversy is obesity. >> bob: people argue it's just as dangerous as starvation. >> kimberly: that is what she is saying. you're in agreement. >> kimberly: but they have standards, height, weight, and percentage. >> greg: that is the point. the kid goes to 300. maybe the next kid is 250.
