2:01 pm
>> kimberly: our top story, bad news for white house. rasmussen report has mitt romney with a six-point lead over president obama in a 2012 matchup. to make matters worse, obama is upside down in the gallup daily tracking poll, a couple of days after bob beckel was down right giddy. only 41% approve of obama. 50%, i don't think so. all right, andrea, what do you think about the numbers? >> andrea: he is in big trouble. he saw a very short-term bounce. democrats were starting to rally around him in payroll tax. the optics of that fight helped him because he stayed out of it. now, he has to deal with an economy he hasn't fixed. contrary to what democrats say, it's still in the gutter. i also think the reason for this is mitt romney hid in the tall grass for a long time. he remained unscathed. in iowa, everyone else is killing each other, which is why i think he has been able to hold his position. so that benefits him. something is interesting. mitt romney is now committed to do interviews the day after
2:02 pm
the iowa caucuses, which i think is telling. it shows he is feeling confident in his campaign. that they will place first or second. even if paul happens to win, romney is going to go face the press the next day going in new hampshire saying okay, it's either me or him. >> kimberly: internal polling numbers look good in terms of tracking day-to-day. leslie, welcome to the program. great to have you again here on "the five." >> great to be here. >> kimberly: what do you think of this? >> i always said romney is the republican candidate. people being polled love him but the republicans don't love him. he is guy most difficult for obama to beat. he appeals to the independents and appeals to centrists and appeals to who will determine the next election. i'm not worried about the poll numbers. last week, bob and i did the happy dance. i think i might do it next week again. >> kimberly: eric, happy dance? >> eric: obama is doing a happy dance. he had a three-hour dinner after a four-hour round of golf. >> kimberly: are you following him around?
2:03 pm
>> eric: goup will poll that bob doing the happy dance, it's two days ago he was doing the happy dance. i think he turned it down because of the hawaiian trip. people are going my god, really, really, obama? i'm very dissatisfied. let me point one thing out. a poll released today about the likely republican voters, the desaltsf with the whole field. came out at 46%. this time four years ago it was 11%. there is clearly room for someone who may not even be in the lead or hasn't been in the lead to take over and get a big percentage point. >> kimberly: greg, i see a smirk on your face. >> greg: obama job approval poll, not that interested in it. the fluctuations are this way, and this way. it's like watching gramps try to parallel park. >> broken glass? >> kimberly: wait until gramps hit the cush an curb ande car behind him. >> greg: mitt is a can of beer. in the morning you're not
2:04 pm
ready for it. by lunchtime, it looks good and by dinner you want the can of beer. america is looking at romney saying he's can of beer. >> andrea: a lot of people are looking for vodka. they don't want to chug the beer. if beer is the only thing left on the table, i'm going to funnel that beer. the other choice is barack obama. >> kimberly: can you tell we're getting ready for new year's? >> eric: time out. you said the other choice other than obama is ron paul. do you see funnel the beer? i'm not. >> greg: what drink is that? ron paul drink. >> andrea: i wouldn't funnel ron paul. >> greg: shot of jagermeister. >> kimberly: speaking of ron paul. let's take a listen to this. >> i think ron paul's views are totally outside the main stream. virtually every decent american. >> ron paul would make a very
2:05 pm
dangerous president because of his foreign policy. >> one of the people running for president thinks it's okay for iran to have a nuclear weapon. i don't. >> the second term with barack obama, i'm not sure it wasn't that different than ron paul administration when it comes to national security. >> kimberly: a lot of ron paul. what is going on? >> eric: here is what is going on. ron paul had great ideas regarding the fed and fiscal policy. but the other stuff is so big and so blatant, it is a chance to become a president and certainly, maybe even republican nominee. this whole controversy with ron paul hiring michele bachmann's campaign manager is huge. it's getting bigger. the campaign manager said he never told michele bachmann he was offered money from ron paul. if he was offered money from the ron paul camp, which they deny, a controversy. >> andrea: bad protocol in politics. that is really bad. the controversy around the news letters, the racist newsletters, anti-homophobic
2:06 pm
newsletters. we haven't covered them a lot on "the five" but they are despicable. a lot of people in the g.o.p. are turned off by it. it's a big problem for him, too. not just foreign policy it the things he says, stay in the closet to gay people, it is disgusting and ridiculous i think. >> greg: to use another food or beverage metaphor -- >> andrea: i'm getting hungry. >> greg: i'm starving. there is food in the green room, i can't eat it because it's on atkins. then there is a cake, because it's your birthday tomorrow. i can't eat it either. >> andrea: okay, angry, hungry person. >> greg: ron paul. like ripping candy on the dish from your grandmother's house. you finally taste it and go ohh. that is ron paul. he has been around forever. he has good things but then there are blood things that leave a bad taste in your mouth. >> one thing that leaves a bad taste in many republicans' mouth, he is not a republican. he's civil lib bertarian. this is a protest vote. this is like okay, we don't
2:07 pm
have gingrich or cain. we don't have perry. who is left? anyone but romney. >> kimberly: what about the rick santorum? >> andrea: rick santorum is surging in a new rasmussen poll. third. in december, fifth place. 5%. now at 16%. >> greg: in iowa. >> andrea: in iowa. right. which is good for him. he has been all counties in iowa. he moved his family there. >> kimberly: worked very hard. >> andrea: very hard. social conservative. look, leslie brought it up. the conservatives have been searching. they have been on dates with all the candidates. they are not thrilled. someone like rick santorum, though it's unlikely, there is a chance for him to place in iowa. possibly come out, maybe not in new hampshire but in the south he could do very, very well. >> kimberly: go ahead. pops them in the third place position, which predicting. that will be a big victory. >> greg: i think people are starting to move on from, i guess the way the campaign has been so far, like a giant game
2:08 pm
of whackamole. someone comes up, pound him. somebody comes up. you pound him. we have to move away from that. i don't think we can say it's great santorum went there and brought his family there. we have to move toward a game like candyland. moving around and getting toward the finish line instead of beating up on each other. i love candyland. >> kimberly: santorum comes in as third place. what does it mean for michele bachmann who has taken hits? >> eric: a great question. by the way, newt gingrich, i think he released numbers today. he raised $9 million. that is a big number. it's interesting to find out how much the other one. michele bachmann, specifically asked about her, if she raised a lot of money, i don't think she did. i haven't heard she was going to. if she did, she could stay in longer. i asked her point blank are you going to stay? she said i'll wait. it won't matter. they all tell you that. rick santorum, 16% in iowa. love the conservatism. but santorum, bachmann, perry splitting the conservative vote. >> this is a conservative
2:09 pm
issue, social issue. the number one issue is not unemployment in iowa. they have a decent employment market. the social issue, immigration drives it in iowa. >> andrea: these polls we should be clear, too. the polls are so tough in iowa to tell because of the complicated nature of the caucus structure. >> kimberly: holiday week. >> andrea: the polls are tough and chunk of undecided we talk about all week on the show. >> kimberly: they will all come out. see if there is good weather. i want to listen to this. listen to charles krauthammer and what he had to say. criticism for the g.o.p. >> eric: charles. >> i think with some of the sort of embarrassing candidat candidates like cain and others along the way, the president, who is by who he is, presidential, look better. i think that explains the reason his numbers are up. >> kimberly: yes. >> greg: what he is saying is after this bizarre game of the bachelor, people are starting to look for mr. right. and people are starting to get
2:10 pm
serious. that is why mitt romney seems to be the guy that everybody is going to. that's what i think. krauthammer is always right, too. >> andrea: he's also dana's boyfriend. he is married, but secretly hers. >> kimberly: he is dreamy and smart. we love him. >> greg: i don't think he is dreamy. >> kimberly: okay. >> greg: what is wrong with you? >> kimberly: smart guys are dreamy. >> i'm not buying in to dreamy. >> eric: greg and i on a table with three beautiful, smart women. >> andrea: you're smart as krauthammer. intelligent. >> kimberly: a brunet caucus at the fox news channel. oh, yeah, you like it? we've got more. coming in. karl rove thinks maybe the end of the road for harry reid and nancy pelosi. bye-bye. his 2012 predictions are next. shoot us an e-mail complimenting all the brunettes on the show. tell us what you think at stay with us. ♪ ♪ xñ?x0x

♪ ♪ >> greg: that is -- >> eric: sorry. gene simmons. karl rove making bold predictions for 2012. much of them, in fact, in the latest "wall street journal" column, but the one that is getting the most attention by far is the harry reid and nancy pelosi will leave the democratic leadership by year end. ahh. ain't that a shame? leslie, what do you think of rove's prediction? >> charles might always be right, as greg said in the last segment, but mr. rove is wrong on this one. even though nancy pelosi's
2:15 pm
daughter says my mother wants to get on with her life, she is very clear she will stay true to her constituents and stay true to her donors and stay in d.c. also, you have senate, like seven seats, seven democrats running. that has me excited on the other side. seven people leaving. nelson is retiring, too. i just don't see her doing that. harry reid works so hard. it's really tight. his latest campaign. i think he is in it until the end. >> eric: nancy pelosi, carrying the gavel around the halls of congress. she loves that thing. >> andrea: she likes props just like you. she can be in your calendar, too. >> eric: no. my anti-calendar. what do you think? is rove right about either one leaving the leadership? >> andrea: pelosi is one i'd put my money on. her daughter said today she would retire right now if she didn't have donors putting pressure on her. she knows better than anyone she is not going to retake the house. the democrats are not going to retake the house. i think it might happen that
2:16 pm
she might go. >> greg: here is the thing. predictions are great, because the only time you remember them is if you get them right. the person making the prediction comes on and says remember when i said this? bob, yeah, if rove is wrong, nobody is going to bring up that tape. so, why did rove say this? rove is an evil genius. we all know that. this was a clue. why is harry and what's her face -- >> kimberly: nancy. >> greg: why did he say those two? they're the same person. that is what it was. >> kimberly: she was my congresswoman in san francisco. i used to be related to her. >> greg: you used to be related by husband. >> kimberly: yes. so i think she has probably had enough. i know other things about people who moved in that district. >> eric: wait, guys. don't you remember when the republican, boehner got the gavel and she said i'm going

to get thatgal back soon. all right. karl rove also predicted 2012 would be a tough year for the economy. he said a little slow. sluggish economic year nil. thoughts? >> andrea: what are your thoughts? you are the guru. >> eric: see, things seem like they are getting better. the unemployment numbers are getting a little bit better. a little bit. no thanks to obama. >> of course not. >> eric: it's four years of a recession. eventually, it will turn itself around. i think things get better. any other rove prediction we like -? >> andrea: i want to agree with him. >> greg: does it mean we still have to buy gold? i have so much gold. it's all over the place. my garage is filled with gold. >> kimberly: i sleep on a gold mattress. >> greg: really. i'll pretend like i don't know. >> i was told on the show tonight you're giving it away. >> jewelry from the ex-boyfriends, you just melt
2:18 pm
it down. >> big pot. just stir it up. >> greg: i am putting my money in soil and burying it in my backyard. >> eric: soil is right. farm land has been the most productive investment over the last 20 years. >> andrea: there is one prediction that came out today i found interesting. robert wright, a former clinton guy came out and said it's likely, it's very likely -- leslie is jumping up and down. it's likely that president obama will boot joe biden. joe's got to go. and bring on hillary clinton. i just think this is akin to a family adopting the menendez brothers. there is no way the obamas are bringing on clintons. i talked to one democratic source. i said please tell me what you think? he said unless he really, really needs it. this would be a total hail mary. >> greg: this is the most forced marriage since michael jackson and lisa marie. >> kimberly: remember how awkward it was when they
2:19 pm
kissed? >> greg: but she would help obama because she gets no blame for the domestic policy because she is out of countries where cats have voting rights. >> eric: isn't she the most desired -- what is it? we did this yesterday. >> admired. >> greg: one day ago. >> andrea: what do democrats really think inside? just be frank of joe biden. do they think he is just like a bumbling. >> speaking for all of them. sometimes he needs to keep the mouth shut because he puts his foot in his mouth. certainly i, kimberly i shared this with you. i have a girl crush on two women. an andrea, you can be number three. but kimberly is one as you know and hillary clinton is the other. >> kimberly: i don't wear pantsuits. >> but the obama-clinton ticket would be awesome. i do agree it would only be if they are really that desperate. 11th hour desperate. i would divert from the
2:20 pm
economy to foreign policy. and president with the current secretary of state has done well. >> kimberly: she has higher approval ratings than obama. there are plenty of people that talk out loud about it. no secret. they prefer to have her in and think they have a better chance of re-election with hillary at the helm than obama. >> eric: it would be a show of weakness saying we have to get rid of him and bring her on to win. >> he wanted to be secretary of state for a decade. you know, it's politics. it's like wife swap. you say a vote for obama is a vote for the clinton economy. vote for romney is vote for bush economy. >> kimberly: it's interesting and complex. >> greg: rice is a little guy like me. he has to be careful with the trial balloons. float away. >> andrea: message to biden. get your act together or we'll ship you out. >> eric: arizona judge says
