a decent call, right? >> no prisons, no work houses? we'll be taping it on three monitors. don'tbe worry. we will have it for you. >> dana: hello. i'm dana perino with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, brian kilmeade. this is "the five." the obama campaign thought they had it wrapped up when they heard paul ryan was romney's running mate. this week was supposed to be ryan versus medicare. but vice president biden screwed up chicago assault and american crossroad had fun with biden record of gaffes. >> in hard times, america needs smart, discipline leadership. a vice president americans can count on. >> three-letter word. jobs. j-o-b-s, jobs.
2:01 pm
>> improving race relations. >> going to put y'all back in chains. put y'all back in chains. >> helping small businesses. >> you cannot go to a 7-eleven or a dunkin' donuts unless you have a slight indian accent. >> using fiscally sane policies. >> you're telling me we have to spend money to keep from going bankrupt? that's what i'm telling you. >> some people say obama should be dropped from obama's ticket. we say joe should stay. >> dana: that is first take for congressman ryan. >> president obama and too many politicians in washington have been more worried about their next election. than the next generation. we won't do that. we will lead. we will take on the tough issues. we want to earn your support. we want to deserve victory.
2:02 pm
>> dana: wallowing in vice presidential politics wasn't how president obama want to spend the week but you go to battle with the vice president you have. 81 days left to go. the race is on. last friday we were sitting here going yikes! romney campaign better get their act together. a week later, a different feeling. >> andrea: thank you for dropping the gift. while you defend your comment on putting people back in chains we have gone on offense for medicare. they have taken it to the democrats. i'm not buying this whole sarah palin and john mccain telling democrats they should put hillary clinton on the ticket. number one, joe biden is the best thing that republicans got going for them. one of them after romney and ryan. hillary wants to run in 2013. i think. a lot of insiders believe that, too. andrew cuomo will challenge her on that. three, do you think the obama will take clin tops on the
2:03 pm
ticket? they might as well adopt the menendez brothers. >> dana: they are having trouble out there because they want to make this week all about ryan versus obamacare. and medicare. but at this point in the week, i think they are the white house saying tgif. >> eric: a funny week. joe biden had three gaffes, one with the chains and the other saying hey, with your help, speaking to a group, with your help -- >> i got that. >> eric: win north carolina. the third is the sign languag language. >> dana: that was unfortunate. >> eric: the rest of the candidates had a funny week also. mitt romney, funny when the white board failed. we have tips for him. paul ryan cried in wisconsin on sunday. monday he is a weeppy guy. the funniest of the week was president obama when he started making fun, joking about --
2:04 pm
>> dana: a good line. >> eric: he is still the only guy i know who has eaten a dog making fun of romney's dog. funny week. >> dana: if you are the democrats are you glad to get the week behind you? >> bob: i'll be glad when the segment is over. it's not hard to take any politician and put together a funny ad. it's funny. joe biden knows for policy in one finger than paul ryan and what's his name combined. >> andrea: are you kidding? >> bob: before you diss a guy that has been around 35 years he has done a lot of things in politics. be careful. >> andrea: i know he has been around a long time. that's a problem. >> bob: you can say that and laugh about it. fine. >> brian: when the week started i go wow, we'll have a discussion about medicare and talk about substance, talk about entitlements, going to see whose plan works better. it's interesting where it
2:05 pm
looked for the first time in a long time that the obama re-election campaign was on appeal. but in a way, joe biden saved the week for president obama. because he got, because he got everybody off medicare debate. got off everyone saying well, this guy is in good shape, with a really good mind. we have respect from people like erskine bowles. in a way, examining biden relevancy and goodness was a bit of a way to soften the week. >> dana: if you are a democratic consultant, take the line and spin it over the weekend. you say it's a brilliant strategy to get biden out there. look at that. it's funny. ri>> ec: i wouldn't say strategy. >> dana: friday, having fun. biden and then ryan. >> with you, we can win north carolina. yes! if we do, we win the election
2:06 pm
if we win you. >> it's great to be here in north canton or joe biden might say it's great to be here nevada. >> dana: i like when politicians have fun and be self-deprecating. the liberal line that underscores what everybody is thinking. >> andrea: with the serious issues there should be humor. biden provided the wrong humor. paul ryan, i don't think they can get a glove on him. i don't. >> dana: the whole time he has got a clean personal life, he knows the issues. he's not easy to make fun of. he is tough to demonize. that's why i think all week ryan was able to keep hammering home the point that obamacare raised medicare on and on and on. ryan does make an interesting point, because i think as much as president obama didn't want to tell "people" magazine and "entertainment tonight" that joe biden made a mistake, i think they want to talk about anything but the economy.
2:07 pm
they are saying african-american voters won't be here. >> go ahead. >> bob: the one thing that was for us and helpful for romney, romney brought taxes back in the debate when he answered a question, saying i haven't paid less than 13% in my previous taxes. that was covered up because of the biden thing. in terms of medicare, the idea we won't lay a glove on paul ryan is ridiculous. the best thing that happened they didn't win the medicare debate. it was covered up. that's the best thing that can happen. covered up by biden. >> eric: not covered up. it didn't get covered up. biden was earlier in the week, medicare debate came out in the middle of the week. >> bob: did you hear something from ryan that made you feel like -- >> eric: no. i want -- >> brian: can we do this? >> eric: we need a board. look what it says below. who won the week? i'll tell you who won the week. guess why the romney-ryan campaign won the week? since ryan was announced?
2:08 pm
look at the numbers. 10,157,947 raised online. 121,000 donors. 45,000 new volunteers. romney-ryan campaign. >> bob: how do you count that? >> dana: they released it. >> eric: you don't trust the campaign? >> bob: no. >> they can't make this up. >> eric: make those up all the time. >> dana: let's talk about something that andrea brought up. it's interesting. >> andrea: the menendez brothers? >> dana: press coverage, decision. president obama when he campaigned as senator said i will have one press conference a month. at the time i didn't think it was that was sustainable. but they have had them for a while. joe only had once official press conference in the year. in march. last time he took questions from white house press corps in june in the event in chicago where they had canada and mexico altogether is where he said the private sector is
2:09 pm
doing just fine. haven't had one since. the white house press corps starts to get twitchy when they say they only talk to "people" magazine and "entertainment tonight." well, we have a job to do an we'd like to ask him questions. >> brian: that has to be disturbing to do this every day and see somebody else get your interview. then he did three local radio spots. [ inaudible ] for the stations in iowa. but i think now, they are going to react. my hunch, you would know better, that he called a snap press conference next week. >> eric: wait, wait, wait. >> bob: you got to remember this is the main stream media out there, you say support. obama, why would he -- >> dana: that's the thing. that's what i find amazing. despite not getting them any chance to ask a question, by stalling, denying, deflect, all this stuff and they still get great press. the guy can't go wrong. >> eric: here is why. it's no surprise that you
2:10 pm
point out the last time he had a real press conference questions were asked we got private sector doing fine. every other time he is off prompter there is some sort of gaffe where he says don't worry about it, you didn't build that business. why would you -- >> bob: press conference? >> dana: not the president of the united states. >> bob: has he had a press conference? okay. fine. >> eric: hold on. [ overtalk ] if you are the white house, you forget what you said in 2008, i'll do this once a month or once a quarter, once a year and say keep the guy out of the press. don't let ed henry or jake tapper raise their hand or andrea mitchell for that matter. >> bob: that makes sense. it may be going back against what he said but makes sense strategically because he could get tripped up. >> dana: it will backfire. >> when he does do press conferences, few and far between, if you notice he doesn't take questions when he's asked one he gets very uptight and testy. if it's a tough question.
2:11 pm
and two, he filibusters so he doesn't answer the question. the white house press corps, i'd like your thoughts on this, they want access to president obama. a lot of them you see them writing books. they do movies and this. they're lap dogs often. >> dana: this is not that big a deal outside the white house press corps but it's chipping away at the press' responsibility and freedom to do what they a pool report, where one reporter writes it for everybody else. you can't have every reporter everywhere. they should be amongst themselves. turn out this week -- somebody on vice president staff was trying to edit the tool report before it went out. and then we had the nerve today to tell russia to respect freedom of expression from its people. in the meantime, they're trying to edit the pool report. they're just trying to do too much control. it will backfire. >> bob: editing the pool report is a good idea if you can get away with it. >> dana: one time tony snow
2:12 pm
is giving a press briefing when he was at the press room and he was thanking a group of people for helping him. he left out somebody. it was embarrassing. a mistake. he didn't mean to do it. but it was pointed out to him that this person got left out. so tony then asked the stenographer to put him in the transcript so it would be there. the press corps flipped out. they knew the guy had been left out. we promised we'd never edit a transcript. that's something that he said. not something a reporter was writing. never have gotten away with that. >> brian: anyone who says outloud the name of the punc rock band arrested in russia, you have to edit the transcript. don't, bob! coming up -- >> bob: we have to get out of here. >> dana: i'm going to tease this next thing. swallow my dismay of where the story almost just went. talk about medicare next. i love the topic. bob could be a loser for democrats this time. i know you don't believe that, but it might be.
2:13 pm

>> bob: she heard it once off. she is getting. to take from the private health world if you're 55 or go to medicare. now, if they will drop obamacare, so all preexisting conditions are no longer the fact. you mean to tell me that the private insurance industry is going to cover everybody coming off of medicare? we have very expensive proble problems. they do it because they're good citizens? >> greg: if they want to compete -- >> dana: if they want to compete and earn business, yes. >> eric: you're from the west. show me person. you believe that? >> dana: i do. that is the point of this. if we don't do anything, medicare is gone in 12 years so let's try to do something to reform it and get the private sector involved so people make better decisions for themselves.
2:20 pm
i am excited about what the private market can do. it's exciting going forward. for current seniors. >> bob: if that this reads the way i understand it, nobody takes private healthcare. stay on medicare. >> brian: if you look at the drug plan, the people using prescription drug plan, right over the left vilify. the cost have been 43% less than estimates because the free market forces keep it down. he is saying let's get the free market involved in this. >> eric: who is left in -- >> bob: who is left in medicare? >> i'm piling through as much information on this plan as i can. here is the way i understand it. this is an important distinction. medicare, right now, the current system as they define benefit system where there is no catchtition whatsoever.
2:21 pm
dana points out when you go to combined contribution system you get money and shop around the competition. that drives the price down. this is not a mandtory switch over to contribution. it's voluntary. if you make it mandtory it saves money. what we know, forget the plan. what we know, if you don't do that, president obama in place, you have obama care that will get the medicare system to $716 billion. we will cut medicare advantage. 4 million people will go off. they love it. number three, the panel may or may not kill you. >> bob: let me ask andrea a question. she knows about the healthcare thing. let's assume for a moment that you do away with obamacare. first thing they will do, "x" it out. preexisting conditions. who is left in medicare? who will not take insurance money and go out in the free
2:22 pm
market? >> andrea: it depends. a lot of people initially want to stay with medicare. some go to the insurance plan. some insurers, though, have come out and said we will continue to take patients with preexisting conditions. if you are an insurance company you want the business. you want the new customers. the federal employee system get costs down by doing it. important point is this. there are articles that say the obamacare plan does not cut benefits. very important. it does not. it cuts reimbursement. that's what it does. the reimbursement hospital, doctors, nursing homes have been gutted. a lot of hospitals go bankrupt and doctors won't treat patients, medicare. patients won't get the care they need. >> bob: you talk about the cut by obama. cpo, said it's a cost saving
2:23 pm
over the ten-year period of time. if that is right, we got to believe -- >> dana: how do they get savings? by what andrea said and cutting down how much a doctor is reimbursed. so you will have a doctor shortal and people with less care. obama's people said 15% could go out of business. they themselves said obama care goes through with the medicare cuts they will end up with less -- >> bob: i say medicare savings, you say cuts. saves, cuts. savings, cuts. >> andrea: most at risk are disabled, people with cancer. >> bob: coming up, booze and bibles. is that a good mix? we tell you about that. i would have been there on regular basis. plus, eric bolling caught up with lynyrd skynyrd.
