jobs. in one hour, grover norquist on why we keep repeating the same mistakes. on fox business. where we just don't cover the business. >> we give you the business. >> got to work on that. >> eric: hello, everybody. i'm eric bolling with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, and greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> eric: well, a risky move by president obama. he wants to talk about jobs. not the jobs he vaporized since taking office but instead going after mitt romney's tin your at bain capital. >> bain capital walked away with a lot of money. we view romney as a job destroyer. to get up on national tv and brag about making jobs when he has destroyed thousands of people's careers, lifetimes,
2:01 pm
destroyed people. >> he is running for president. if he is going to run the country the way he ran our business, i wouldn't want him there. he is so out of touch with the average person in this country. how could you care? how could you care for the average working person if you feel that way? >> eric: boy. with that, president obama declared the season on negative attack ads open for business. what if it's smart for president obama to bring the focus of jobs back in the fray. after all, he is the guy that lost the most jobs under his watch since jimmy carter. speaking of that, bob. what about it? bad idea, good idea to talk about romney's record on jobs? >> bob: good idea all the way around. that time we opened up on bain capital and what romney is about. he says he creates jobs. he destroys guys. he said he wasn't there when they lost the jobs in the steel company. they put a big debt on the company of which romney and his buddies walked away with millions of dollars in profits and then the thing fell apart. the history of romney and creating jobs is a myth.
2:02 pm
he is so out of touch, look, they took away the poor people pension and the health insurance. do you want a guy like that to be president of the united states? >> eric: for the rest of the segment, i want to clarify this. you are going to attach everything that happened to this company, the steel company after the time that romney? >> bob: i date it from the time they took the huge debt on the company which bain took away. >> eric: they went bankrupt -- >> bob: the key was -- [ overtalk ] >> eric: does it mean that romney should get credit for the 85,000 jobs created at staples, the thousands of sports authority, the thousands at dom knees, steel dynamics? the list goes on and on. >> dana: it's a stunning way to run a campaign when you are taking so much out of context so early. but remember, back in december, it was actually gingrich and perry who made despicable attack on boehner. bain. that is one of the reason they had to start leaving the race.
2:03 pm
but an effective ad for obama until you start seeing the context. if you think that there is only 8-10% of people undecided in the country when it comes to who they are going to vote for, i don't think an ad like this is persuasive. people understand economics. what happened in the steel industry overtime. you don't think so in you think people are stupid? >> bob: no, i'm sorry. i had to burp. [ laughter ] >> kimberly: oh, my gosh. for real? >> bob: yes. >> greg: i told you not to -- you eat the brownies in the greenroom before you go on. i tell you to stop eating the brownies. >> bob: all right, all right. we've been through this enough. >> greg: eat a carrot. >> dana: i don't think brownies cause you to burp. >> greg: the way he eats them. shews them down his throat and chases it with coffee. >> kimberly: i don't find this to be an effective tool. this is troublesome when you think about this. this is the best they have to do to make attack against romney. they have real trouble with
2:04 pm
their messaging. i don't think they want to go down this path. i don't think it will get them a lot of headway in swing states. i don't think it will make headway with independents. that's where they need to focus. apparently they feel they shored up their base pretty well. >> eric: in the ad, he calls romney -- not personally, president obama, but one of the people in the ad vampire. like watching an old friend bleed to death. is that fair? >> greg: the thing, is interesting the ad was paid for by the last george clooney fundraising dinner. it really was. microcosm of the hollywood liberal movie. which is the mean, rich, white guy. and all the people that he harmed. it doesn't matter if it's actually inaccurate. we'll go back and foth. when bain comes up, when did it start? he was at the '99. other tough was 2000. blah, blah, blah. bob did what he did to america. he gave -- he gives everybody
2:05 pm
indigestion. it came back to him. >> eric: but you can say -- >> bob: you can say all you want, gst, the steel company, beginning of the end was when they took a huge debt on. when romney was ceo of the company. 750 people out of work and out of pension and healthcare. that is not funny. that is serious. there is nothing about that, you can try to hide. >> eric: it is funny, bob. do me a favor, pull up the full screen with three faces on it before we do the side. look at the three faces. these are people working closely with president obama. look at the one in the middle. steve ratner was president obama car czar who called that ad unfair. the guy on the left. tony james, also called that ad, unfair. the guy on the right, lavine. jonathan lavnef i'm not mistaken is a director at bain capital. a bundler for president obama. take a listen. >> i think the ad is unfair.
2:06 pm
so, yeah, i do think to pick out an example of somebody who lost their job unfortunately, this is part capitalism. and part of life. i don't think there is something that bain capital did they need to be embarrassed about. >> eric: obama czar. >> bob: that is a hedge fund operator that makes money off of bain capital, destroyed companies and jobs. for ratner to say that and use it as an example is irresponsible. it's just, it is just -- >> dana: but like bain capital couldn't survive if they didn't make investments that ended up being good and companies succeeded? how have they been in business all this time? >> bob: this company, they went away with $7 million in profit. >> dana: venture capital firm, they don't just go to destroy. they create. if you have a business that is about to fail completely, you could just close your doors like solyndra did after $550 million of taxpayer money and then nobody has a job. >> eric: there were things they --
2:07 pm
>> bob: there were things that were successful. the idea that this company was doing just fine. until -- >> dana: it wasn't. >> eric: stop saying that. it's not accurate. they took an interest in the company. 1993. >> bob: i understand that. >> eric: contraction in the steel industry that took a ton of steel out of business, almost wiping out u.s. steel completely. kept them afloat for nine years. >> eric: allow me. they took controlling stake or big stake in steel dynamics and now it's a $6 million company. >> eric: you want to say a guy -- >> bob: you want to say a guy that says i know how to create job and put mitt romney and bain company up as the reason for that, you are kidding yourself. >> dana: compared to president obama, i do. what -- >> bob: 1.5 million jobs created. >> dana: what is his plan more jobs? >> bob: he created jobs. >> greg: it's 25 million jobs. why not just pull out any number. you don't have to prove it.
2:08 pm
>> bob: last three years, 4.3 million jobs. >> eric: still more than 600,000 -- >> bob: he lost 600,000 the first month he was in office. that's his fault? >> kimberly: jimmy carter numbers if you find that exciting and you sleep well at night. he is your guy. for him to pick on romney, a losing cause. i hope he has other legs to run on. >> dana: let me add another thing. fueling anxiety. this is why i don't think an ad like this will be persuasive for people undecided in the election, which is that "usa today" reported one in five families owes more on credit card, student loans and other unsecured debt than they have in savings. the number of people with no savings at all is 23.4%. up from 18.5% in 2009. that is all on president obama's watch. if you want to play this game about context, that is where the anxiety is rooted. >> eric: can i bring up a point? the screen with the three faces on it, one of those guys tonight is hosting a fundraiser for president
2:09 pm
obama. it's hamilton, tony james. take a look at the guy on the left. hosting president obama fundraiser tonight. greg, how can president obama attack private equity when this guy is head of the biggest private equity group in america, hosting a fundraiser for obama? >> greg: good question. put the three faces up again. i want to make a point why does the hedge fund operator all have terrible hair? look at that. >> bob: good point. >> greg: it is good. the more money you have, the faster your hairline recedes. >> bob: that guy partner raising money for mitt romney. that is the way they play the game. nothing new about that. the guys are in business of buying influence. they do a good job. >> eric: in the business of making money. >> greg: that is all it is. making money. this is why the debate gets tedious. it never moves the ball forward. you always have people like bob who don't like people making a profit. >> bob: that's not true. >> greg: and others who want to make a profit.
2:10 pm
>> bob: i don't have a problem with profit. i have problem with people profiting off the back of other people. >> greg: with profit comes risk and with risk comes failure. >> bob: try to say so nastily -- >> greg: that wasn't nasty. that's the way it works. you learn it as a kid. >> bob: when you are a multimillionaire you can say that. >> greg: i'm not a multimillionaire. >> dana: he didn't call anybody a vampire. that is nasty. >> bob: i don't think it's that much of a stretch. [over talk ] >> kimberly: it's crazy when people misunderstand the concept of how businesses run and the basis of private equity companies are. they restructure. they go in and it would be grossly irresponsible if they didn't restructure. they take this in, make investment and make them more profitable. if you want to say that mitt romney shouldn't president because of what happened with gs steel, then go for it. >> bob: this is hedge funds an the one unregulated ridiculous operation. take companies apart.
2:11 pm
they could care less how many people lose their job. >> greg: here is the point. as long as it's the government using your money to lose it, it's okay. that is your point. as long as the government is losing your money, because it's not really our money, right? according to the left, it's our money. government money. do whatever they want. spend it on high-speed trains or solyndra or fisker, do whatever you want. private industry loses money, they're evil. >> bob: what about the defense department loses money on lousy investment? >> eric: we have to give a quick shot out to the president, who is laying it up a with pop star ricky martin at a big nyc fundraiser. coming up, media is focusing on j.p. morgan chase. headlines buried. california billions of dollars in the hole and on the brink of bankruptcy. why isn't the media covering that? fair an balanced discussions on those stories coming up. thanks for babysitting the kids, brittany.

2:17 pm
the trades were flawed, complex, poorly viewed, poorly executed and poorly monitored. other than that, they were great. along with goldman sachs, j.p. morgan is considered a bank filled with talent. smartest of the smart. but it happens to even the brightest on wall street. give us a summation how it could have gone wrong. >> eric: it's an vinnestment bank on wall street. investment banks do well. they have a natural walk on the market. when the economy gets better, they do well. they are already interested in a better economy, what j.p. morgan did. the head of the division that put the big trade on, bet on the economy going north as well. they had a double bet pro economy, american economy didn't work out that way. so they lost on the one side. of note. jamie dimon, they found out and got out there, top of the talk shows over the weekend. this morning. he cut the loss and told everyone this is what is going
2:18 pm
on. this is a very admirable move. >> dana: does the buck stop with him? >> bob: absolutely. when he found out about it -- he is the ceo of the company. somebody's neck ought to be on the line and guillotine and it ought to be his. if you had any guts, dimon, you would resign, like admirable people would. >> eric: why dimon resign? know about everybody trade the bank does? >> bob: $2 billion. >> dana: the investigation will come out i suppose. but they did say he had been keeping an eye on the trade for a while. to me, kimberly, if it's $2 billion, and that only .1% of jm morgan asset. why with the self-flaglation over the weekend. this is what the banks do. i think a press release would have handled it. >> kimberly: but i guess in term oshe was management style he wanted to get ahead of story not look at what was
2:19 pm
hiding. the numbers for jp morgan, the overall success, juxtapose to what happened here. the balance sheet is in favor of jp morgan. a lot of support in the banking industry for the bank, the company and jamie dimon in particular. when you think about it, i know that this end of the stable blood thirsty. bob is heavy be guillotine metaphors today. >> dana: greg, given all of that, is it surprising that the first thing that someone aed in washington was we need more regulations, even on the regulation they put forward wouldn't have cover this in the first place. >> greg: this story has absolutely no meaning for me whatsoever. i don't care. this is a private company. the net worth is $189 billion. this is 1%. it lost half my money in the last ten years. nobody cared about that. it's my money. i don't care.
2:20 pm
why does the media care? why aren't you screaming for head of steven chu of solyndra or fisker? that is public. this is private. why do you care about the private money? >> eric: it's not even steven chu. it's president obama. steven chu equals drew in this case, they put the bad bets on. >> greg: why does the media obsessed with the private wealth, not about our money? about the public use. >> bob: this is a public company. >> greg: you mow what i'm talking about. >> bob: i do. as opposed to the government. the idea that this guy dimon led the charge against regulations in washington, he has been the chief face down there lobbying against it. supposedly, he had the strongest of the big banks in the crisis. here it is. this guy did violate rules. the volker rule. >> eric: no, he didn't. >> bob: yes, he did. >> eric: he did not. >> bob: regulations been in place that were supposed to be in place, he would argue against and they would have been brought down. >> eric: it's not in place. it's not a rule yet. when it gets -- >> bob: rule-making process.
2:21 pm
>> dana: every article i said today said that the laws they pass, dodd-frank, when president obama signed it, it would not have addressed this particular problem. >> eric: is there a washington prescription for every problem? if jp morgan made $2 billion profit, they would have been calling for higher taxes. >> andrea: buried the lead. >> kimberly: give me the break. >> bob: do you not think they should be regulated? >> bob: they are regulated. >> kimberly: obama was betting on the economy going north and everybody knows that didn't happen. just like solyndra. >> bob: you want to endorse jamie dimon >> kimberly: i'm just telling the facts. >> eric: i don't think dimon did anything wrong. they didn't do anything illegal. in that breath, i think it's actually not a bad idea to separate the banking, consumer banking, deposits from the trading side. which technically they don't have to do yet. this is not a bad idea. >> bob: the regulations they put in place would have
2:22 pm
impacted. if dimon and those people -- >> dana: i'm not sure. get greg in here. you got a point? >> kimberly: quick one. re's right that the capital ratio 8.4 to 8.2%. like greg said, a drop in the bucket. guess what? they are not asking for a stimulus or bail-out or handout. let the market work. >> dana: the higher capital standards put in place after tarp that probably helped them. >> bob: can i say carl levin that wrote the law. they call it volker rule. they prohibit these bets made here. for him it's specifically he has -- >> eric: can i explain this to you? jp morgan, all they have to do is split themselveses in half. jp morgan betting side using your term and chase deposit side. draw the line between the two companies. they could still put a trade on. they're not required to. >> dana: volcker rule is so vague.
2:23 pm
they haven't done what they need to do to make it clear. washington gets in whatever. we need to have greg wrap us up. >> greg: i completely lost interest in this discussion. >> bob: thanks. >> greg: i did. it lost interest. i was reading from my next segment, actually. >> kimberly: i know you were. it could see you doing this. >> greg: coming up -- start with the heads roll thing. no more heads are rolling. hate that. >> dana: the new banned word of the day? save it for your one more thing. everybody, all right. did the obama campaign try to silence obama's ambassador jeremiah wright in the 2008 campaign? details on that. bombshell allegations up next. right after you get to hear from greg. ♪ ♪ [ man ] hmm. a lot can happen in two hundred thousand miles...
