you got to demand fbn, fox business network. >> why do you want to demand it? i'm right here. [laughter] ♪ >> hello, everyone. i'm your minuscule motor mouth greg gutfeld along with the coolest democrat, bob beckel. it's 5:00, coming to you live from inside the world's largest pinball machine in new york city. this is "the five." the show is packed tighter than barney frank's luggage. let's arm relative truth, america. "the five" starts as soon as i end this unnecessary sentences. according to politico, president obama's worst critic is actually
obama himself. wow. how refreshing. so counting obama, that's exactly one critic of the president in the mainstream media. the website points out that obama's self-critiques began early in his term, a notable departure from his predecessor, george w. bush. so true. bush had no had interest in himself, but for obama thinking about obama is a full-time job. then adds, obama supporters see the public self doubt as proof of the president's honesty. even when the president admits he's imperfect, that makes him more perfect. it's like when you're asked to name your biggest fault in a job interview and you say sometimes i care too much or people say i'm a perfectionist, or i can only squat thrust 400 pounds. i said that when i interviewed at jam jamba juice. still didn't get the job. obama says shovel ready was not as shovel ready as we expected. you can tell how obama is
torturing himself with introspection as he eyes the putts on the 18th green. bob, you have to admit, that was a big, slobbery kiss for obama, wasn't it? >> that was one of your better reads. first of all, it was only last week on this show, maybe two weeks ago, y'all sat around and said, obama blames everybody else for his problems. dada dada. look, here he is, taking credit for his problems, and now you dump on it. what's the deal? >> that's a great point, but we needed a segment. we conveniently forgot about last week and did this segment. dana, would bush or a republican get this -- >> probably depend on who's writing it. george bush at every press conference would be asked, don't you hate yourself? how can you sleep at night? there w never going to be
enough self-flagulation for them to be satisfied. >> here's the thing. i guess you could say that president obama is a beta male, because he's not afraid to be self-deprecating, but the last beta male we had was jimmy carter. >> and obama is doing worse than jimmy carter. you don't want to be compared to jimmy carter. new numbers show that obama has the lowest rating of any president in the history of gallup ratings. it goes back a while. nixon 50%. reagan 54%. obama is at 43%. by the way, truman 54%. and remember he's patterning his campaign after harry truman. i thought i was obama's worst
critic. >> truman, you said 54%? >> at this stage in his presidency. >> you're thinking of "the truman show," which was a terrible movie. >> all cute when he says, i'm my own worst enemy, i have to own up to my mistakes, except that he's put $5 trillion on to the national debt in three years. if you extrapolate that over -- >> how many times do i have to explain it? >> explain it, bob. >> if there had been a president obama, there had been a president mccain, it would have been $3 trillion in increases in entitlements and the national debt. >> however ou're wrong with your numbers once again. president mccain or president conservative may have stopped adding to the national debt. >> you can't stop adding -- can you stop paying interest on the national debt? >> absolutely not. >> can you stop paying social security payments? >> you can reform social security. >> oh, okay.
now you're talking about reform. >> yes, bob. that's okay to do. do you think obama is his own worst critic? >> no. i think eric is his own worst critic. >> i want to bring in governor christie. mont he tore into president obama. he basically he blamed the super committee's failure to reach an agreement on president obama. we have tape! >> listening to the spin coming out of the administration about the failure of the super committee, and if the president knew it was doomed for failure, so he didn't get involved, then what the hell are we paying for? it's doomed for failure, so i'm not getting involved? what have you been doing exactly? when you're president -- it's not good enough to say i'll get it done after the election. >> dana, is he kind of sore that he didn't -- i can't believe i said sore. that's like an archie comic.
you can see christie being sore about something, that he didn't enter the race? >> no. i think he's proving, if it continues on this way, he'll be mitt romney's best asset in the campaign if he's going to campaign for him. >> if i could just say, the guy didn't have the guts himself to run. if you don't have the cajones to do that, go back to new jersey and make that state worked, which is floating, not because of anything christie did, but because of stimulus money. christie, if you're not willing to get up and run, don't criticize. >> you're not running either. >> i can't run. i got a record. >> that's true. >> governors make critical statements all the time of the president. he commissioned his own commission that he did nothing on. he's made no effort to reform entitlements, made no effort to balance the budget, a campaign promise in 2008. he's ducking for cover, because he knows if he jumps into a
fight he'll get hit and he can't afford to -- >> outside of george bush, can you name me one of these republican candidates for president who's come up with an entitlement program? >> paul ryan. >> paul ryan is not a presidential candidate. >> not yet. >> by the way, he had one that was going to cut $6 trillion. >> excuse me. he's not running for president, unless he's running for the we can is in club. he's -- for the kiwanis club. >> why do you our checkbook in your hand? you're spending money like a drunken sailor. >> he doesn't. >> you're saying he's from jersey, but he took unions in e room and said, look, we're going to reform pensions and benefits and bring the state back to health. he's doing that. what's obama could do but refuses to do. >> he canceled the tunnel to new york, which was smart. i'm for that. i think this makes a lot of sense. this guy is vastly overrated. >> that was stimulus money. >> it was before the stimulus.
you know the thing that i come back to, you say gingrich has a plan for entitlements. i haven't seen it. maybe it's not out there. forget ryan. he's not running. >> forget that -- >> i said he's not running for president. i'm asking you to tell me, name me one significant statement that's been -- >> gingrich and -- >> on entitlements? >> yes. >> what are they? tell me. you can't name them because they don't exist. >> it does exist, but we don't want our time talk being it. video was obtained, exclusive video, of illinois senator barack obama back in 2006, talking glowingly about reverend jeremiah wright. i did this for you, bob, more. >> the title of the book, some people have noted that i actually viewed that line in a speech that i gave in 2004
democratic convention, but i tell you what, i'm confessing to all of you here today, this is a big crowd, 2,000 people, i'm confessing in front of the tv cameras, i actually stole this line from my pastor, jeremiah "ajeremiah a.wright jr. >> he's confessing he stole the titlechi which i thought was the title of a girl's diary. does this matter now? >> it probably doesn't matter. no, probably not that much, although for people not inclined to vote for obama again, maybe anybody that's on the fence, it does take a look at maybe the media will not protect president obama as well as they used to. >> oh, yeah. >> if the democrats try to make mormonism an issue, do they want
to have this pastor debate of where obama got his religious beliefs and where -- >> sorry, all i can say is "the five" deserves a lot of credit for breaking this incredibly new news story. this has been only around for about eight years. give the producers credit for digging this up. it's a shot at obama. admit what it is. it's a shot at obama. >> if we found out that no not t gingrich's spiritual advisor was david duke -- >> what's next? >> so what's the point? >> the point is we got to go to a break. >> yeah, okay. >> probably a good idea. >> you sure we don't have older obama tape? >> bob, we can't find older tape of obama. he didn't exist before 2005.
♪ >> welcome back to "the five." newt gingrich has been taking heat for immigration comments. last night o'reilly asked him about the border. take a listen. >> would you put a border from brownsville to san diego if you were president? >> yes. >> okay. >> absolutely. >> but you support a registration of illegal aliens? >> yes, i would support a universal registration of those who are here illegally. >> sanctuary cities, what do you to them? >> we'll propose a bill to cut
off funding to any sanctuary city or sanctuary state. they get no money of any kind from the federal government, period, as of that moment. >> what do you think, greg? >> he's got his opinions. >> i'm for a border fence, but to keep the attractive immigrants in, based on my immigration policy of good-looking people. the thing is the problem with newt he's so full of himself he needs two heads. he carries one around in a duffel bag when this one is full. no matter what he says, people get like more newt. >> he has an answer for everything. the question about the fence is a good one. a lot of these immigrations are really good, and it was great that o'reilly was digging deeper, getting him on the record. that interview probably helped newt gingrich on the immigration front, i would think. >> well, okay. and bob, i'm not really sure exactly -- that 25-year number that we've discussed, i went to newt.org and looked for, couldn't find it there. i'm confused about where he's going with that.
o'reilly wanted to nail him down as to where he was on scare on y cities, would you pay -- he said no. >> let's start with bill's question about a fence from brownsville to san diego is impossible to build one. >> why? >> because you have to go over mountains and have to go through the big bend. that's okay, that's fine. if you build a 12-foot fence, we'll invest in 13-foot ladders. the point is gingrich is showing courage on this. i think he answered those very well. i don't know about newt.org, because there's so many of them, but he has said, when he originally announced it, he said 25 years -- he made it very specific. he added one other thing to it which was each city would have their own group, a council to decide who stayed and went. >> could you imagine the political shenanigans with something like that? >> how can you prove you've been here for 25 years?
here's my phone bill, 25 years old. really? >> it's a better strategy that's out than what we're seeing now, and he's one of the only ones that has the guts to come out and say it. if you like to eat at restaurants? >> yes. >> okay. i would say most restaurants in this city, all the other cities across this country -- >> i'm the only one here at this table that says send illegal immigrants back, people who have broken the law. >> as great as it sounds to gop primary voters, what every candidate wants to say, but they don't have the guts to come out and -- >> is newt gingrich jumping the gop field, saying, here, i'm -- >> there's something to be said about it. one reason why -- by the way, the reason you do say it, you only want to bend to os and talk to -- oz and talked to the wizard. it would cost somewhere near $30 billion to send them back. >> just out of curiosity, what
was the last stimulus plan, $860 billion, so your number, $30 billion -- >> that means you have to find them. if you looked at your gardeners, you'd probably find them. george bush made a point, he got 44% of the hispanic vote. if the republicans cannot get north of 25% of the hispanic vote, they cannot get elected president of the united states. impossible. so the question for newt is, do you play that idiot tancredo game -- >> tancredo is a purist also. >> he's not in office anymore, first of all. and secondly, president obama is losing hispanics, not because of the immigration stance, but economic policies. there's a chance that a republican, if they're able to message it, could win. >> dream on, dream on, dream on. >> let's go to the next segment.
take a listen to o'reilly grilling newt on pelosi, on global warming. >> what was that all about? >> well, i've said it's one of the dumbest things i've done in recent years. it was an effort on my part to say that conservatives are concerned about the environment. we have better solutions. i actively oppose cap and trade. i testified against it the same day al gore testified for it, but the commercial was just a mistake. >> what do you think so? >> i love that he owned up to it. it was dumb and move on. he didn't try to defend it like most politicians do. newt gingrich is banking on a primary schedule that looked like an ekg meter. there could be an extended primary fight. if mitt romney doesn't win early, someone like newt gingrich could last. states like arizona, that have primaries in february, these positions that we argue about every day on "the five" could
happen. >> the schedule favors gingrich, because after new hampshire you head south. south carolina, then flew flori, all through south, oklahoma, the super tuesday states. romney will have a difficult time beating gingrich in these states. he'll start to win as you start to move north, the midwest, upper midwest, moving east. could be an extended primary season, and i think gingrich by doing this, you all passed over, he said i want people to know that republicans care about the environment, too and not all of us are flat earthers who don't believe in grand slam. >globalin global warming.>> thee followed what the democrats did, and found their obama. instead we're going back to the old school. there's going to be dozens of these things popping up with gingrich. >> i'm not here to bash newt, by the way. i think i'm done bashing every gop up here.
i'm don. you can talk about these subjects, trash newt, trash mitt. newt is a brilliant guy, smartest man in the room. is this enough to move him away from the pelosi, whole global warming issue? >> i think the person that is going start bashing gingrich is perry, because if you -- he's got a lot of money. he's got that big pac, and you might start to see some attack ads against newt, because if you think you could come in second or third in some of these states you don't necessarily want to go after the frontrunner, y want to go -- >> one piece of inside information, perry is in money trouble. he's blown a lot of his money. the burn rate is $500,000 a week. he's in financial trouble. >> and he needs a lot of 21-year-olds to vote. >> and quickly, rom didid say, first time his campaign has said, we will win iowa. we'll make an effort in iowa. >> that's a very important point. can we talk about that when we come back? >> romney, great hair.
this is the relief i've been looking for. salonpas has 2 powerful pain fighting ingredients that work for up to 12 hours. and my pharmacist told me it's the only otc pain patch approved for sale using the same rigorous clinical testing that's required fo prescription pain medications. proven. powerful. safe. salonpas.
♪ >> welcome back to "the five." right before the break, we were talking about something that was in a significant development today. andrea, walk us through. what did the romney campaign say today about iowa? >> they acknowledged iowa, said thethey are going to win iowa, which is huge, because they were ignoring iowa. they didn't want put all their
chips on iowa publicly, and fail, and be hurt going into new hampshire. that's critical. newt gingrich has forced them to be competitive, to come out and make a play for the state. it's huge. it's really big. >> you wanted to make a point? >> the biggest political story around, that's been overlooked, the fact is not only did he ignore iowa e stayed away from the ames straw poll. he made it clear that he did not consider iowa to be part of his game plan. now all of a sudden it's down to two people in iowa. he's got to compete. he had 25% of the vote in the caucuses in iowa in 2008. i think what you're going to see now is putting massive amounts of money in there with the hope that he can pull off an upset in iowa, go on and win new hampshire, and then, maybe then, he becomes the prohibitive frontrunner and wins the nomination early. i don't think that's going to happen. i don't think that he can go in there and buy that thing off in this short a period of time. the fact is, he had no choice. that's the other thing. he had no choice.
how does a frontrunner stay out of iowa when there's nobody else but one other person running? >> i'll quickly point, he does need to win these early states. that's his strategy. >> that's true. >> he has to win these. >> he can't win in south carolina. >> what do you think if you're a romney, gingrich, or even perry, trying to go forward, what do you think the most important issue is on their minds? is it the economy? >> i think it has to be. they're similar on other issues. they've both come out with the immigration thing that -- you know, they'll take shots at each other. i think i has to be the economy. of the two, mitt romney's got a 59-point plan. newt's is cohesive, his plan to bring jobs back to america. fantastic plan. it's very cogent, believable. >> the intensity factor behind the immigration factor is higher in iowa than other states. >> doesn't matter, between the two of them -- >> it favors the gop right now.
one of the things happening in iowa, before we continue to talk about a mitt/newt issue, there's a group that's for sarah palin, that's actually put money where their mouth is, run this ad, asking her to run. >> we will not solve our economic problems in this country until we confront the crony capitalism of our permanent political class. this is socialism for the very rich and for the very poor. but it's a brutal form of capitalism for the rest of us. the challenge is not simply to replace obama in 2012, the real challenge is who and what we will replace him with. >> i think that was a fife, like a musical instrument. fife fans, don't write in. this is basically a reflection of dissatisfaction at what people are looking at in the field, but it reminds me of
people that get upset when their show got canceled, whether it's "star trek" or "freaks and geeks." they can't let it go. they do letter writing campaigns. you've got to move on, people. there are other candidates out there. >> look, the conservative movement is looking for sarah palin to jump back in. clearly she can't get in in primary states, but could get in in caucus states. >> they're a month late. >> why is that a waste of time? >> there's no way she can get in. >> not only that, but to make a point -- >> i don't want her to make a point at this point, because we will lose. >> that may be the worst political ad i've seen. she's got a 70% negative in the country, eric. that's more than i've got. >> there's a reason why the leader, the alleged leader, mitt romney, can't get over 25%, because the conservative voice is looking to get behind someone
they would get behind her. >> she falls behind him in the polls when she was talking about going in. >> one of the reasons this is even coming up is because of something like this. we teased this earlier, where andrea features in a dnc ad against romney. >> oh, yeah. good. >> who is this guy? can you trust him? >> i've never support the president's recovery act, all right, the stimulus. no time, nowhere, no how. i think there is need for economic stimulus. >> preserve and protect a woman's right to choose. >> the right next step in the fight to preserve the sanctity of life. >> he was pro-choice, then pro-life. >> andrea. >> did they ask permission, andrea? >> they did. i don't know what the dnc is thinking about me. >> we'll run that a lot, but i'm going to suggest they put the republican consultant underneath there. >> it does show that the democrats are more mother's day
about romney than anybody else, trying -- more worried about romney than anybody else, trying to attack him. >> mitt romney did save the olympics, am i right? >> yeah, maybe. >> just putting it out there. >> american airlines filed for bankruptcy, and are unions to blame? we'll debate that next on "the five." >> oh, of course. ♪ congratulations. congratulations. congralations. today, the city of charlotte can use verizon technology to inspire binesses to conserve energy and monitor costs. making communities greener... congratulations. ... and buildings as valuable to the bottom line... whoa !
