3:02 am
>> dave: she's capturing the country, somebody may do this. >> alisyn: the moment between the two conventions, this is the time to reset and the dnc is two days away, delegates pouring into charlotte and the president kicking off a campaign tour that will lead him to north carolina for his acceptance speech. >> dave: and joining us live from the latest on the dnc preparations, wendell, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, it will take him through two battle ground states, colorado before today. the state he won in 2008. yesterday, a couple of states in iowa, another he carried in 2008 he's counting on. with the economic recovery much more intepid, mr. obama is in a difficult position, people polleded thinks he
3:03 am
understands, but think that romney, he says romney has no plan to solve them. his assessment. >> it's obama's fault. and governor romney is the only one who knows the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy. that is the pitch. there was a lot of talk about heart truths and bold choices, but nobody actually bothered to tell you what they were. >> here in charlotte, the democrats are turning to technology to make it convention. the entire convention streamed online with people attending interacting with those watching it and translated into spanish to help the president hold on to substantial lead of spanish voters could help him in the
3:04 am
west and florida as well. interest in the convenes down from 2008. governor romney's acceptance speech, 10 million fewer tv viewers than john mccain, and the charlotte in the california stadium, and the democrats may struggle to fill the seats. hasn't drawn that many. >> dave: the clint eastwood, is there a buzz about a surprise guest speaker outside the political arena or not. >> reporter: i'll be surprised two things, i'll be surprised if there is a surprise speaker and i'll be surprised if anyone else has a surprise like mr. clint-- mr. eastwood gave us in tampa. >> alisyn: you'll be surprised to be surprised. wendell, thank you very much. back to you. >> clayton: the national
3:05 am
conventions are a longstanding tradition, are the millions spent worth it? former arkansas governor, mike huckabee thinks they're overkill. >> gone are the days of yesteryear when the political convenes gave the nominee and drama. and highly scripted and choreographed world of today's political convention, several days of lodging and meals and gulag-like security and artfully crafted moments, it might just not be necessary. let's be honest and call it what it is, it's a tv show. since that's what it is. why don't we condense it to two nights, two hours, and at the end of the program bring son big time bands, and it would save time and it would save money and the results would be the same.
3:06 am
>> dave: here to weigh in, good to see you bright and early. give us perspective historically why they used to matter so much before we debate how much they matter now. well, i think governor huckabee was on to something, back even as late as 1960, john f. kennedy didn't get the nomination until the convenes, gerald ford, '76 it wasn't a done deal until the convenes. all through the century, conveneses are where the candidate with put in and i think they may have outlived the usefulness and purposefulness. nothing gets done at conventio conventions. >> alisyn: i would agree they are photo ops or drama until clint eastwood, there are moments that can catch fire and the buzz for the next week. >> the dashths are going to
3:07 am
ensure they don't have clint eastwood, clint eastwood is now a verb, i think it had a detrimental effect on mitt romney and his message. i agree with the governor they're so highly scripted and theatrical stage performances and condense is down and spend the rest of the time entertaining and firing up the base, people like to still go to conveneses and take a moment to rally as a party, we don't need four nights of it in prime time. >> there's no, i guess, nick, what you're saying, there's no importance anymore given the fact that you're not walking in there like james garfield would one day and suddenly walking out as the nominee the next day. or the 1960's, you have individuals on the flow like reporters yelling up, with ear pieces in. we had six delegates switch back and forth and this guy is now going for this guy and we
3:08 am
don't have any drama, it's a foregone conclusion who the nominee is. >> that will never happen again. i love you brought up garfield, he went in not being on the ballot and came out the nominee. >> in 1976 ford was not a done deal and even in '80s, reagan didn't pick bush until the convention, at least there was excitement. but truly there isn't any excitement or spontaneous. >> dave: i think i come in on the other side and mess americans got introduced to mia love, and marco rubio and susanna martinez. that's the best thing out of the convention. people don't know who they are, what they believe in, and they're introduced to a whole new class of republicans and made the whole week worthwhile. to meet mia love andgates i don't know how many americans paid attention, marco rubio is pretty
3:09 am
well-known. i agree with the governor it could be fo houtwo hours and th rest firing up the base. >> some of those you're referring to, were not during viewing hours. >> dave: i've heard a lot that saw the speeches and it meant a lot to us. >> alisyn: our question of the day. let us know on twitter, are our conventions valuable or extended photo ops. nick, thanks for the history lesson. good to talk to you. when you made your gar feld referenfeld-- garfield reference, i thought you meant the cat. do you want any lasagna. >> alisyn: a former aide to homeland security secretary janet napolitano, sues ann bar

3:11 am
was 1991. parts of louisiana on high alert, the river swollen from hurricane isaac is threatening to overflow, and pearl river could crest tomorrow morning leaving thousands of people vulnerable to flooding and another situation is the power situation. at least 400,000 people still without electricity and air conditioning as the temperature and the humidity continue to soar another rough day there for those folks. those are your headlines. >> thanks, ali. let's turn it over to maria molina in for rick reichmuth. and the guess the remnants of the hurricane with this drought situation. >> and there are two sides to the coin. good morning, everyone, the unfortunate flooding across louisiana and warm and humid conditions you mentioned with temperatures well into the 90's, making things verien comfortable for people without power, but we do have some good news out of isaac, because it's bringing heavy and much needed rain across
3:12 am
the states experiencing extreme to severe drought for months, the ohio valley and down to the tennessee valley getting much needed rain and temperatures not too bad because you have the showers and storms and low 80's for cleveland, chicago, down into portions of western kentucky. as we head into tomorrow, big holiday, labor day, and another warm one in new orleans, 89 for the and texas temperatures into the triple digits and keep in mind if you have any outdoor plans and quick shot of isaac and headed through portions of ohio into kentucky and western tennessee, back to you guys. >> thank you. leading from behind our next guest is the president's foreign policy could put american lives at risk, unless we have general claims. why he thinks that america needs to leaf up to the obl obligation, of american

3:16 am
university had to cancel the course before it began for a lack of interest and some say the state still violated state campaign laws. those are your headlines for this hour. well, you probably heard the g.o.p. criticizing president obama's leadership on foreign policy saying his administration is putting our nation in danger by leading from behind. here is former secretary of state condoleezza rice at the rnc last week. >> we can only know that there is no choice because one of two things will happen if we don't lead. either no one will lead and there will be chaos, or someone will fill the vacuum who does not share our values. my fellow americans, we do know the have a choice. we cannot be reluctant to lead and you cannot lead from behind. behind. >> so what are the tankers
3:17 am
what secretary rice calls obligations of american exceptionalism? joining us general jack keane, good to see you. >> good to see you, ali. >> alisyn: we've heard president obama leading from behind in terms of foreign policy, how would that look different, moving forward. >> in america we're not only the first democracy in the world, but we're the most unique, our constitution guarantees our rights eparticularly freedom and we've been able to fight for the rights and establish this country and also to preserve the rights of our citizens when we fought to release our people from the bondage of slavery. we've always heard this voice of the oppressed and people around the world striving to gain some receipts we've had. we've stood up for those rights. world war ii, and now the struggle against radical islam
3:18 am
and we've provided the leadership, there's no other country in the world willing to make that commitment and sacrifice, when american leadership is strong, in my view, the world is a safer place, it's actually a better place and when american leadership is not strong, when it's not consistent. it's not willing to stand up, then the thugs and killers, begin to fill that vacuum and have their way. >> and condoleezza rice made that point we can't afford to have a vacuum. specifically moving forward what would that look like, that means we get involved in the syrian crisis, that means what for afghanistan, and what does it mean for iran? what would we do? >> well, i think first and foremost, we're a force for moral good in the world, so, we speak up when the oppressed are given voice, we saw that in the summer of 2009 when the iranians were in the streets, over a million strong,
3:19 am
actually chanting the name of our president and asking the people of the world, are you with us? the fact of the matter is, our voice was silent. no one thought that we would go to iran militarily, but the moral force for good at which we have used many times in the pasts, was not to be heard. it's inexplicable tore more specific. in libya, gaddafi was threatening to kill 10,000 people in benghazi, we helped to stabilize that militarily and certainly removed gaddafi. in syria 20,000 people have been killed and certainly, it's difficult to contrast the differences there, why we're not even providing the weapons that the rebels are asking for to help assist them with dealing with the assad regime. >> alisyn: what does american exceptionali exceptionalism, the term, mean to you? >> well, to me, first and
3:20 am
foremost, it draws from our constitution, you know, where we're giving rights. as a result of that, the role of government is subordinate to the people. and out of that grew a love for freedom and those rights in the united states of america. and we care so much about them that we're willing to protect other people's rights around the world and we stand for that and it's about leadership. and it's a the a time now when other countries in the world, more and more of them are not willing to step up. you saw that at the end of the 20th of the century, when milosevic, no one was lifting a finger. 250,000 were killed until america stepped in. it's mostly american leadership standing up for human rights. >> alisyn: we'll see if we hear more about this at the dnc and from mitt romney on the campaign trail. thank you for coming in.

3:34 am
controversial book "the amateur" he says there was a big dispute in the white house whether or not to down size bill clinton or to showcase him. and that valerie jarrett thought that he shouldn't play a prom nept role and finally david axlerod says, he should because he's the standard bearer of the democratic party. so let's listen to what might be in the speech. >> he in fact, has called obama an incompetent, an amateur among other things that are printable and i've been told by people inside the clinton camp, that bill clinton is furiously writing his speech receipt -- right now in long hand and getting phone calls from the obama people, what's in your speech, what's your in speech. he's furious and will not tell them. so even president obama has no idea what bill clinton is going to say when he stands up in front of that convention.
3:35 am
>> clayton: ed cline has been slammed by conservatives, peggy noonan, the hillary piece sources, and what sources would come forward and say that, he says my sources inside the obama campaign the last thing he wanted to see was bill clinton one of the great ortors, in front of podium and sucking the air out. >> dave: and 67% approval recording and obama's approval is in the 40's. and background on klein, he ten years the editor of the new york times sunday magazine and worked at news week for a long time, but eric schultz, the white house spokesman says he has a proven history of reckless fabrication to sell the books. let's say we have some balance. >> alisyn: and hillary clinton, where she'll be, if
3:36 am
she will be on the side lines. i think in russia. >> clayton: how far can you go. >> alisyn: former secretary of state condoleezza rice mentioned on "fox & friends" last week whether or not she thinks the secretary of state should speak at the convention. >> in the-- i didn't go to the 2008 convention because the secretary of state, the secretary of defense, certain extent the secretary of the treasury are all officials who carry a nonpartisan brief, if you will so it's absolutely tradition secretary of state is rarely, if ever at the convention. >> alisyn: yeah, so no controversy to read into it. >> clayton: but some say and maybe ed klein is leading the charge on this whole thing, whether or not bill really wants hillary to run for 2016 for the presidency distancing her from the dnc and this election, the clintons somehow see this election is going to be a disaster. here is klein on the sort of conspiracy theory. >> i think that bill clinton
3:37 am
sees 2012, this year, not as the decisive campaign, as far as he's concerned, 2016 is the decisive campaign when hillary will be 69 years old, her last chance to run for president, and he's already starting to beat those drums for her in 2016. >> alisyn: interesting. but news flash, it's not up to bill clinton, it's up to hillary clinton and she has said repeatedly, this is it for her, she is not interested in the next time around. >> getting back to clayton, hillary is extremely popular, too, her approval rating is well above 60 some percent and said that since 2009. the whole clinton family is still the most popular brand in democratic politics. >> alisyn: this yoo year it will be interesting to watch how it plays out. and headlines, what's happening at this hour, hundreds of students gathering to mourn the loss of a teenager tragically killed on the way to a sweet 16 daniel

initially approved, later denied, what does this tell you? >> it goes, i think it really is a teaching moment because it tells us when it comes to muslims and the threat of radical islamism that many of the democratic leadership just checked the box of minority, don't look at ideology, don't realize and finally they said these guys were not appropriate, but didn't say why, because they don't have the courage or the ability to understand that islamists, those that believe in a political movement of the islamic states and dnc doesn't have the courage or don't want to admit that these are a threat to domestic policy, domestic security and global security and the brotherhood and elsewhere and since they can't articulate that, they didn't know how to deal with it, initially covered it up and said well, they're not a part of us. the fact that they can so
3:48 am
quickly dismiss the cardinals and bring them on board, shows the majority fantastic gets the short end of the stick when it comes to political correctness. >> dave: cardinal dolan at dnc, and thank you for being here. >> thank you, appreciate it. >> dave: one town refusing to raise the red, white and blue to honor september 11th, but this flag flap is far from over. one man fighting back joins us next, wait until you hear the reason they're giving to refuse to fly our flag. the smoke has not cleared from this four-year-old shocking pageant performer complete with a fake cigarette. their parents are joining us, to defend the performance. >> it's part of the routine and we've added it in there. ♪make just one someone happy ♪and you will be happy too.

. >> welcome back. well, our flag was given us hope. >> alisyn: our next guest says when he first saw that iconic photo of the firefighters raising the flag out of the smoldering rubble of 9/11, it brought him comfort that we would prevail as a nation. >> now on the anniversary of 9/11 attacks, his massachusetts town is refusing to raise that flag. joining us now amherst resident larry i kelly, thank you for being here. >> it's a pleasure being here e you're fighting this. the town board decided that only six times a year will they allow the flag to be raised on utility poles. what's behind that decision and what are you hoping to change? >> well, we had an infamous meeting on the night of september 10th, 2001 to discuss the placement of the
3:53 am
flag, how long it would be up. a packed meeting. 60, 65 people at the meeting, a tremendous turnout for a little select board meeting and a little more than half the people in the room wanted the flags up a lot. a little less than half wanted them up a little or not at all and the select board came up with a compromise and allowed them up on six occasions, veterans day, memorial day, 4th of july. up right now for labor day, but at that meeting a famous statement made by u-mass professor, dubbed the flag subl of terrorism, fear, nothing to be proud of end of quote and of quote that was picked up in the aftermath of what happened the next day by the front page of the wall street journal, you folks talked about it. cnn probably in front of 30 million americans and i think it made the town look horrific. but anyway, they've come up with this plan of only
3:54 am
allowing the flags up for those six holidays and i just-- >> and larry, that's a great background, let me say that what their suggestion is for september 11th in massachusetts is to only fly it every fifth year. >> correct. >> alisyn: not this year, but fly it again 2016. what do you say to people who don't want to see it this september 11th? >> well, i say that we, we remember memorial day every single year, and memorial day day is a somber occasion, and i personally can't think of any more somber occasion than 9/11. so, if we're going to put the flags up for memorial day, and hold other services that we do on memorial day and we also do it on 9/11. why not fly the flags on 9/11. do you want to be people who think that 9/11 should be remembered every five years? i think it's absurd and
3:55 am
everyone i talk to, why is this even a question? why is this a question? >> here is what the board say, our board represents the entire community and there's a difference of opinions within the community. have you heard from other residents that honestly believe that it should only be flown once every five years? >> other than the two board members who told me that monday night, no. i've -- you know, the stir has picked up dramatically over the last three or four days, and i've had nothing, but positive feedback, nothing. i mean, i think the springfield republican, the third largest newspaper in massachusetts did a pretty big story on it tuesday morning, that you folks picked up on your web page yesterday, well over a hundred comments attached to that story right now from the general reading public and i think 100% are saying, what, are you crazy? you're kidding me, why aren't you flying the flags? it's absurd. what makes me nervous, some people say i'll never set foot in your town again, i'm not going to shop there.
3:56 am
that's not fair. the town i think if you took a poll today would be overwhelmingly in favor of flying the flag. the firefighters union had a meeting in the last couple of days and voted unanimously to strongly recommend that the flag fly every single 9/11 and obviously, who was more impacted than firefighters? they lost 343 of their compatriots that day. and as you said in the promo leading into this, i still vividly recall that day, either later this night or early the next morning, when there was so much depression and so much horror and to see that photograph of those firefighters, and here these firefighters had been spending the entire day looking for victims. at that point cnn, fox, everybody was reporting possibly 10,000 citizens were dead. possibly over 1,000 firefighters were dead. they were exhausted, looking all day and hadn't found anybody and what did they do,
3:57 am
put up an american flag and i think that brought comfort to the entire country. >> larry wow, so he well-stated and emotional. thanks for reminding us how we all felt on september 11th and let's hope that your town can find some compromise on all of this. we'll look forward to what happens in the next week or so. >> thank you, larry kelly. >> well, they are meeting again this coming monday, 11th anniversary of that infamous meeting and hoping they'll change their mind to fly the flag. >> alisyn: we will look forward to the outcome of that meeting. >> clayton: a dire warning for america, from actor chuck norris. why he says our country could be lost forever. >> alisyn: are you addicted to your e-mail? yes, you, clayton morris, those who don't use it are actually more productive. we'll explain. >> clayton: i believe this.

4:02 am
the twitter and facebook followers, what do you do when you can't sleep. >> we had the sleep experts on. you were moaning on twitter. you have to walk up. a 20 minute break, move yourself out of the room and come back and try to sleep again. >> alisyn: your words make no sense to me, i could fall asleep on this sophe sofa, and hope i don't. we're glad you're joining us, because we're in between the two arguably most important political moments of the pa s year, with two days ago, delegates are flooding into charlotte for the democratic national convention, while president obama rallies through key swing states. >> wendell goler, with precipitations. >> here in charlotte, democrats are trying to rally the faithful, but message they want to project is an outreach to the dwindling number of
4:03 am
undecided voters,determining the outcome of the he election. the republican think they were pretty much prechg to the choir in tampa and with polls saying the races are pretty much tied don't think that the republicans got much of a campaign bounce. president obama is on the way to ohio, virginia, and planning to be more about the plans, and more balanced approach, more fair middle class. >> now, this thursday night i will offer you what i believe is a better past, path that grows this economy, creates more good jobs, strengthens the middle class and good news is, you get to choose which path we take. we can take their path or take
4:04 am
the path that i'm going to present. >> democrats still consider north carolina a battle ground state. that's part of the reason the convention is being held here, but mr. obama is going to have a tough time repeating his 2008 win year. the jobless rate in north carolina has ballooned to 9.6% and the democratic governor is so popular, not running for reelection. and the president endorsed gay marriage about the same time they banned it and there are 116,000 fewer carolina voters registered as democrats in 2008 and independent voters are up a quarter million. vice-presidential candidate paul ryan will be reaching out to them when he campaigns in the state just ahead of the conventi convention. >> dave: what do you do when you can't get to bed in the middle of the night. more milk?
4:05 am
>> reporter: scotch. >> dave: genius. wendell is good. >> clayton: didn't bat an eye. >> dave: have to try that. >> clayton: much has been played about hollywood the past few weeks and hollywood actors and weighing in on the campaign trail and will we see any figures at the dnc this week. chuck norris, in the movie expendables with sylvester stallone and arnold schwarzenegger, he has come out issuing a dire warning, saying our country as we've known it, listen to what he i guess they call the public service announcements. >> if we look to history, our great country and freedom are under attack at a tipping point and quite possibly our country as we know it may be lost forever if we don't change the course our country is headed. we know you love your family and freedom as much as jean and i do, because of that we can no longer sit quietly or
4:06 am
stand on the sidelines and let our country go with socialism or something much worse. >> and he had the headlines earlier because he endo,ed newt gingrich and he slammed, slammed mitt romney. and saying that he's part of this elite that we need to get rid of. and he think he laid out a five point plan where he said that newt gingrich is not representative of that and mitt romney is for the future. so, it's interesting that he's now coming out with this endorsement. >> right, whether or not, it's not really sort of more like a warning, i guess. >> and let us know what you think about that, we want to get your headlines because if we're just waking up, amid harassment allegations and top immigration and customs enforcements officials, and a former aide to homeland security janet napitano resigning from her post as chief of staff as accusations of inappropriate behavior with male employees. and she says the accusations are unfounded and doesn't want
4:07 am
to be a distraction from the mission. and 50 years later, german company behind the anti-morning sickness pill thalidomide, is saying we ask for forgiveness, not reaching out. and you record our long silence as a sign of the shock that your fate caused in us. thalidomide was never approved for use in the united states though some victims were american, many victims say the apology is too little, too late. and an amazing story of survival. two 15 year olds from mississippi were playing in a flooded street, the current pulled them into a storm drain and they were dragged through the drain more than 300 yards. listen. >> i really, honestly thought i was going to die. i really thought i was going
4:08 am
to die. >> no way, and i gave up and just let go. i stopped fighting and when i seen murky water pushed up and started screaming. >> a neighbor heard their screams and saw the two crawling out of the ditch near the back yard and they're both okay, but they did have to get stitches on their nose and forehead. incredible. and those are your headlines. >> dave: a doctor twitter follower says perhaps i couldn't sleep because of the full moon. let's ask maria, does that blue moon affect sleeping patterns. >> clayton: like the tides, does it affect dave's mood? >> i don't think so. but et cetera raining in areas that need the rain and localized flooding with heavy downpours and take a look at the state of ohio around columbus and further off to the east and the area shaded in red and yellow. where we have heavy rains. some of you may be waking up
4:09 am
to lightning and thunder. as we continue to track westward, western parts of kentucky and tennessee heavy storms rolling through and parts of the midwest, a cool front swinging through and behind the system, much drier conditions, and lower humidity and cooler temperatures so it's going to start to feel like fall. right now in the 70's in rapid city, a big drop in the temperatures as we head into tonight and also into tomorrow. now, we want to take a look at the drought conditions across parts of ohio, western parts of kentucky and tennessee and we're seeing what's left of isaac, producing much needed rain, good news. the bad news that some of the storms could actually produce severe weather across parts of tennessee and alabama and mississippi, keep an eye out for that. otherwise, you guys, tomorrow, big day, labor day, temperatures looking pretty good except in texas where we're looking at triple digits in dallas. >> yikes. >> question for you this morning, could you live without e-mail for five days.
4:10 am
>> dave: five hours would be difficult. >> alisyn: you can. >> clayton: to be honest with you, i think that maybe e-mail has gotten old school. u.k. irvine have done a study, and people who gave up e-mail for five days, more productive. >> alisyn: and less stressed. and e-mail is one of the things i feel about the way i do about the cell phone, i can't remember a time we didn't have it. i don't know how our lives worked before cell phones and e-mail, but if you cut it out, after one day, not much notice. after two days not much notice. after three days, heart rate goes down and health vital signs go up and stress-- >> if you were surfing the web and weren't checking e-mail, you wouldn't um j p around the internet and spend more time focusing. >> alisyn: so true and--
4:11 am
>> all of these civilian military members that they studied all of them returned to their normal ways after a short period of time. they all said, yes, i felt more, you know, happier, more focused, less stressed, but all went right bab to what they were doing. unless there was institutional change and fox news said stay off your e-mail. >> a number of companies in the tech community got rid of and banned e-mail altogether and they have in-house social networks. >> dave: doesn't that replace e-mail. >> clayton: not in a way, it's shorter, to the point and have actually, instant message clients with people you're working on and collaborating. >> clayton: we dread opening up the e-mailbox, sort through spam. >> alisyn: i feel crushed by the weight of my e-mail. >> i'm addicted to the groupon. sends me random groupopes, the
4:12 am
driver i just bought. >> alisyn: don't send me that. one of the best advice do not check your e-mail first thing in the morning, save it until the afternoon so you can be productive in the morning. otherwise you're crushed. >> clayton: my wife shared with me and read it in an e-mail, don't chk your e-mail first thing in the morning, i'll tweet it out. >> alisyn: let us know what you think, e-mail us and we'll check it instantly. billionlying in the classroom caught on camera, and the teacher is the one actually doing the bullying though. wait until you hear that teacher's punishment. let's say it wasn't too severe. >> alisyn: he's been a life long democrat. why is our next guest going to give mitt romney a chance? ♪

>> and welcome back. he is an outspoken, devoted democrat for 38 years, but our next guest had an epiphany at a dinner. after liberals expressed disappointment for president obama and now he thinks he'll vote for rommel this november. nice to see you. >> good morning, clayton. >> clayton: what changed for you? you were a long time supporter. >> it was a slow process. it wasn't i went hunting with ted nugent, we killed a deer, but i've looked at stuff on fox and written for the huffington post and and i was attacking romney and defending obama and it's more and more of a process, he had less to
4:16 am
defend against president obama and i don't find him to be an effective leader. he's talked about wanting to be like lyndon johnson and have a legacy like kennedy and johnson, but unwilling to do things a politician has to do in order to achieve these things. >> clayton: you wrote a letter to the white house and i guess the straw that broke the camel's back. and here is a copy. >> this is my letter, wrote it on november 17th and got a response on april 11th and i said i've been defending you on fox news and this print, i really don't understand the health care legislation, my health care costs have tripped and can somebody tell me more about this? war and peace is a 1088 pages and the health care bill just under 3,000 and most haven't read either of them. president obama probably hasn't read the health care bill and i got this response that's a form letter. it's not that insulting corpsing that george soros
4:17 am
contributed to the president and snubbed by him. mike bloomberg visited the white house when president obama wanted his endorsement, and bloomberg called obama the most arrogant man he's ever met. >> and based on the content of your message, it's intended your letter is intended for the president's reelection campaign. it's just a cold form letter seven months to get back. >> they wanted a donation. >> i actually made a donation this year to mitt romney, a lot of people gave trouble about. i didn't want rick santorum to beat him. >> the dnc, is there something that the president could say in his speech or narrative that convince you to go back? >> i don't think they're going to. it's been a divisive campaign. you don't unite people by talking about a split between
4:18 am
rich and poor. you want to unite the country and talk about bringing us together not splitting us apart. if mitt romney only paid $13% income tax, if that's legal why should he pay more? these are things they're attacking. >> and letters to the white house, we've learned, also, rob, thank you. >> good to he zoo you. >> clayton: coming up on the show, it's a no-brainer and give 110%. we're breaking down the office phrases that drive co-workers crazy and smoking fake cigarette on television and her parents say it didn't cross the line. >> sandy comes out and stomp on it and we feel it's part of the routine so we've added it in. the words are going this way-there's no way.

>> all right, please welcome to the stage, contestant number 27. a big round of applause for destiny. (cheers). destiny comes out with a cigarette in her mouth and she has a cigarette. >> what is she thinking? >> so, was the performance outrageous or are people just everreacting? joining us now are destiny christian, her parents, lisa and desmond christian and pageant director for beautiful me productions, angela smith. welcome to call of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> lisa, will et me start with you, tell us the thinking behind giving destiny this fake cigarette to use on stage. >> well, the thinking that i had was it was her first clips pageant and we just wanted to be competitive with the other girls, we didn't know what to expect. >> alisyn: now, we had a psychiatrist on the show
4:24 am
yesterday who we showed that segment to. it did cause audience and among the audience viewing at home and says giving a child a cigarette, even if it's fake, even if it's a prop sends exactly the wrong message that you don't want your four-year-old to grow up thinking that cigarettes are cool. >> oh, no, i don't. i have already explained to my daughter that cigarette smoking is bad for your health and she knows the difference between right and wrong and i don't think pretending is no harm to her. >> angela, you of course are the pageant director. help people understand. because when we see video like we're seeing on the other side of the screen right here of little kids using cigarettes and sort of dressing provocatively. we saw some putting padded bras on in one segment and dressed in sort of a sexual fashion and how can you say you're not exploiting these
4:25 am
little kids on some level? >> i don't think it's exploiting, i think it's just a hobby, and with the glitz pageants, a lot of people go over the top with their outfit, but i don't think it's any different than cheerleading or gymnastics or dressing up your child for hollywood. it's a pageant and a lot of people have fun with it. >> alisyn: absolutely people have fun, but isn't it different in gymnastics or cheerleading, about how they look and dress, there's not a skill necessarily. >> i think there's a lot of still involved with pageants. a lot of girls that compete on the national level. they compete every weekend going to pageant to pageant and they have to do a lot of training, just like gymnastics and cheerleading, a lot of outrageous with competitive cheerleading, heavy makeup, but it doesn't draw the attention as a beauty pageant
4:26 am
and i think the show toddlers and tiaras put the pageants out in the world and therefore, there's got to be a lot of criticism. >> alisyn: least is what have you noticed since tiffany participated in the show, any changes in her personality? >> i haven't seen any changes in destiny, she's feisty and not your typical four-year-old. >> alisyn: what has she liked or her sons been to being in some of the pageants? >> destiny loves going taths and she has even, i even wanted to quit them and she come to me, no, mommy, i don't want to quit. she is a team player and she loves to clap and cheer on the other girls and she does not have any ennis and destiny is completely all for the girls. >> alisyn: well, she sure looks cute there behind you, we know that she does not have an ear piece and can't hear the questions i'm asking. angela, what message do you
4:27 am
think that these pageants send to young girls like destiny? >> i don't know that they send any message. a lot of the girls are just having a great time. i know at that destiny really enjoyed doing her grease performance. and on the outside world, there will be criticism. but i do not believe it's exploiting kids. >> alisyn: i have to stop you, because as you're speaking, we're seeing the split screen, i don't know if you can see a monitor of the little girls there, in the padded bras, in the fake underwear and again our psychiatrist yesterday who then deals with adolescent girls once they have body image issues, says that this is sexually kids way too young. how can you say it's not when they're putting on provocative bras and panties? >> again it's, you know, to each their own, i mean, i you know, personally do not have a
4:28 am
child that does pageants, i do not have any children, but a lot of the people that do compete, they enjoy it, a lot of the kids have a great time and i know one of the girls in the news right now, she's competed in a lot of my pageants and enjoys being on stage. and i'm not saying that everything that's been on toddlers and deeai tiaras is perfect, but it's just a prop, a costume and really nothing more. >> alisyn: well, lisa and desmond christian and destiny christian and thank you for giving us your firsthand being in the pageant and middle of some of this criticism. thanks so much. >> we're glad to have you-- glad to be here. >> alisyn: thank you. coming up bullying in the classroom caught on camera and the teacher the one doing the bullying. so why is the teacher still in the classroom and you heard them and knew some of these expressions for breaking down

after romney's speech on thursday, but there is a rasmussen tracking poll that showed, that romney was trailing by two points going into the convention and as i say tracking means over three or four days, by the end. he was leading by three points or five points and some of the others smaller than that. and you know, the traditional bounce was an outdated idea because that used to happen when the conventions were several weeks or months and now with one convention ending on thursday and the next beginning on tuesday, i think the only i think this that will matter is where things stand next week after both conventions are over and people had a chance to kind of settle out and consider their reactions to tampa and to charlotte. >> so this answer paul ryan among others, campaigning in north carolina on monday, it seems, was this in response, chris, to sort of president obama breaking tradition and exchange while the r in. c was going on.

5:42 am
the school district is going back on their plan? >> i think so. i think that the public discussion and the attendance brought about by being actually view what went on in that classroom has made a big difference and it's important for people to understand and realize how dramatic an incident like that can be if it-- >> speak in actual numbers. we're looking at you 0 on the video on the screen. what are we looking at here? >> you're looking at a concerted effort to target one young man trying to get an education i don't think you see any kicurriculum happening there. and how you can target an individual child and show you dominance or use him as a play toy, that's certainly inappropriate in the classroom. >> pinning him down, putting chairs on top of him. all the way the teacher egging on the students. the teacher said he thought it
5:43 am
was harmless horse play. >> well, the teacher was leading the activity. the chairs on top of my client happened at the initiation of the whole teacher. if you look at the video he's initiating putting the chairs on top of him. poking him in the belly and expressing interest on passing gas on him. alarming activities by the teacher. and acting like a 12-year-old and acting out in his own classroom as opposed to leading the classroom, explaining to the students how to do math. >> he was reassigned. >> correct. >> clayton: the cricket didn't fire him, reassigned him. what do you want as a result of your investigation. what do you want for your client. >> my clients are hoping this never ever happens again in the schools. there's some who can get a good education and other
5:44 am
students can get a good education, out of the risk of being tormented in the classroom and they wanted kids to be safe and recognize this is a bullying incident and treat it as such and they're patiently waiting for the pierce count sheriff's department to complete their investigation and appropriate action and why the school didn't handle this in the way that the legislature has set up to work. several agencies it look into these matters rather than just leaving it with the school to decide whether or not it's something for the rest of the universe to know about. >> clayton: the was teacher was john rosi. >> rosi. r-o-s-i. he was reassigned as a substitute teacher, but retrained, never fired. do you want him fired and will the sheriff's department actually come and arrest him?
5:45 am
>> i don't know that the sheriff's department will come in and rest and a charging decision and at that time may do so if they feel it's necessary. i don't know, i understand that he has legal counsel and may arrange for the appropriate acts if charges against the teacher himself. it's hard to say, those entities were separately from what we're trying to do and we're just trying to make sure that the discussion stays positive. certainly don't want to see anything more tragic occur as a result of this accident. we want to see it get more focused on what needs to happen in the schools and how our kids need to be educated without this kind of risk. and the long-term detrimental effects are astonishing, it's stig, it matters. >> alisyn: we'll get you here on this question, bullies in school and so many segment. and here we have a teacher
5:46 am
leading a bullying section. how is your client doing, that teenager doing today? >> you know, he's getting better, but it's a life long effect. he's had to change schools. he had a sibling in the school and now they're going to different schools. different vacations, different holidays not sharing the same experience and, and not being able to lock back at being a graduate of. and so it's a different life style and it's going to have long-term effects and he needs to learn how to not be the victim and not be, not be placed in a situation and trust adults in an educational setting and that's tough to do when you've been tragically violated and disappointed by the leaders around you. >> clayton: we appreciate you coming on this morning and telling us that story. keep us informed. and thanks, joan.

>> clayton: absolutely and all eyes on the dnc this week as we look toward, as wendell mentioned, one of the highlights will be bill clinton's speech and, a report this morning from namely ed klein who says the white house wants to see this speech and yet bill clinton is writing it out in long hand and will not let them know what is in it. here's what ed klein said last night on the huckabee show. take a listen: >> he in fact called obama an incompetent, an amateur among other things, that are printable. and, i have been told by people inside the clinton camp that bill clinton is furiously writing his speech, right now, for the convention, in long hand. and he's getting these phone calls from the obama people, what is in your speech? what is in your speech? and he is furious because he will not tell them. so, even president obama has no idea what bill clinton is going to say when he stands up in front of the convention.
6:05 am
>> clayton: could go two ways, remember the famous connection speech bill clinton gave that went on i think two hours... >> alisyn: it is still going on! >> dave: he'll blow through the stop sign. >> clayton: and his book is this thick and if he is writing it out long hand, there is concern it will be longer. >> alisyn: we know from when he was in the oval office, the presidency, he did like to do that and wrote out long hand and wrote his own speeches and stayed up late, burning the midnight oil and his probably is not done yet and that is why they haven't seen it and it is hard to believe after the surprise of the r.n.c. last week that anybody in the obama campaign would let a speech go on unvetted but when it comes to bill clinton, who knows? ed klein, who of course is the author of the controversial book on the obama presidency, called "amateur" says my sources inside the barack obama campaign said the last thing obama wanted to see was clinton, one of the world's greatest are tors, standing at the convention and sucking all the air out of the
6:06 am
place, and, he claims his sources inside the campaign say there was a big debate between valerie jarrett and david axelrod on how to use him. >> dave: and ed schultz who says klein has used reckless fabrication, in writing his books. and bill clinton has a 66% approval rating and who got the economy roaring, comes in and speaks, against president obama, who has a rating of 45%. >> and does he make the statement mistake al gore made in not using clinton. he didn't have him on the campaign trail and al gore tried to distance himself from bill clinton, at your peril, i suppose. >> alisyn: and another question is while hillary clinton be conspicuously absent from the democratic national convention and she has great approval ratings at the moment and some
6:07 am
think the obama administration dispatched her far away to europe, to being there and condoleezza rice, former secretary of state says she doesn't think it is true and she, herself was not at her own republican national convention when she was secretary of state. >> i didn't go to the 2008 convention, because the secretary of state, the secretary of defense, to a certain extent the secretary of treasury are all officials who carry a kind of nonpartisan brief, if you will, and so it is absolutely tradition, and, is rarely, if ever at the convention. >> clayton: ed klein said on "the huckabee show" saying bill wants hillary to run in 2016 and this is a setup for her to be perfectly positioned for 2016. listen to ed klein: >> i think bill clinton sees 2012 think year, not as the decisive campaign, he's concerned 2016 is the decisive
6:08 am
campaign, when hillary will be 69 years old, her last chance to run for president and he's already starting to beat those drums for her in 2016. >> alisyn: lanny davis took objection to that, lanny davis is an insider, obviously in the clinton camp and served in the clinton white house, and here's what he said about ed klein's theory: >> he has no knowledge, no information, pure speculation. so, he's entitled to speculate about what president clinton is thinking but he has no facts. the fact is, president clinton is focused, right now, on reelected barack obama. and, hillary clinton is focused right now, who is my old friend from law school, on getting some rest and figuring out what to do with the rest of her life and she is not planning on a presidential campaign. of that i can assure you. >> dave: hard to believe hillary would be making a run at that
6:09 am
age after everything she accomplished and she's in the mid 60s... one of the highest -- >> and i'm looking to relax a little bit is what she said. >> dave: right. and ed klein said, he never reports anything, confirmed not by one, but two sources. >> clayton: and peggy noonan and other conservatives -- conservatives -- slammed ed klein, saying he is not well sourced and they slammed his book reporting and, so, anyway, who knows. >> dave: good intrigue. >> clayton: certainly is. will be interesting to see what happens with bill clinton this week. >> alisyn: and i wonder what lanny davis would say about you suspect calculating about marti martians. >> clayton: i'm free to speculate. >> alisyn: your headlines, a "fox news alert". a train detrailed, knocking out power to 2500 people and it happened just before 2:00 a.m., 8 full-size cars went off the track and one slid down an embankment into a backyard and

distraction. this happened three weeks after barr went on leave. >> dave: rick reichmuth is offs across the country. how does it look for labor day? >> good morning, everyone, it looks good if you live across places like the northeast. we'll be enjoying temperatures that are pleasant for this time of the year, like floonew york, expect a high of 80 degrees and low 80s tomorrow as women, if you live in the southeast, it will be high temperatures today and tomorrow, the upper 80s and the issue is when you factor in the dewpoint, it is humid and you have to deal with showers and storms as well during the afternoon hours and otherwise, texas, upper 90s, triple digits for some, in dallas, a high of 102°, and, tomorrow, labor day, big day for us, a lot of us will be off, triple digits for texas, again, upper 90s in kansas city and parts of the northern plains on the warm side. rapid city and minneapolis, 89° for your high temperature, as we head into tomorrow. and we will deal with showers
6:12 am
and storms, and some of these will actually be associated with what is left over from hurricane isaac, now just showers and storms, across parts of the ohio valley, and, also, parts of the tennessee valley and we actually need the rain out here and there is good news, showers and storms again from ohio down into parts of tennessee and something to keep an eye on, some of the storms could produce severe weather across parts of central tennessee and down through northern parts of alabama, we'll keep a close watch on that and otherwise, northern plains, cold front sweeping through with showers this morning. back to you guys. >> clayton: thanks, coming up on the show, president obama, accused of leading from behind and putting our troops at risks. we heard that a lot during the r.n.c., what would a romney presidency mean for our men and women in uniform? a former navy s.e.a.l. weighs in on that, next. >> alisyn: then you heard of them... and maybe used these, breaking down the top most hated office phrases. the business jargon, and, yes, we are speaking outside of the box.

>> dave: joining us now with reaction, former navy s.e.a.l. scott taylor. always good to see you, scott. >> good morning, dave, great to be here again, thank you for having me. >> dave: what has mitt romney said or maybe, what has mitt romney not said, that tells you what type of president he would be, regarding the military? >> well, you know, we hope that he'll hold up the high standard, if he is elected. special operations op, doesn't advocate on any candidate but i think mitt romney is a serious guy and serious candidate and understands how it is necessary to have a strong military, and american military in the world to deter those who may want to do harm to other and ourselves as well. >> dave: when it comes to situations like, most notably, afghanistan, or, perhaps, the situation in syria, which were both very very, serious, do you have any idea in terms of how you would handleal the a al tht and what gives you that clue.
6:18 am
>> it is difficult to say, but i will certainly say there haven't been a lot of details coming out from either candidate, if i might say. i'd like to see more details from the obama administration, as well as the -- what governor romney would do if he were president. those two issues are very important right now and affect us, certainly, in the world and it would be nice to see more details from both of the candidates. >> dave: one thing john mccain spoke about the other night at the r.n.c. was about pending defense cuts, something mitt romney that's also spoken about and here's what romney said about these sequestration cuts: >> a year ago, president obama told you at the national convention, quote, we cannot, must not, will not balance the budget, on the backs of our veterans. end of quote. i thought i finally agreed with him on something. but, now he's on stlethe verge breaking that promise. the obama administration is set to cut defense spending by nearly a trillion dollars. my administration will not. [applause].
6:19 am
>> dave: of course many cuts are because congress could not reach a deal of handling the debt and deficit. $500 billion in additional cuts, how do you deal with that and what are you looking for, as far as president obama or mitt romney in terms of handling the cuts. >> the second question first. i'm looking for leadership, that is what i'm looking for, leadership from them and from congress. it's terrible to hold the military hostage for that, unemployment is higher with the military, and it would be devastating, if they come through and, you don't want veterans coming from front lines to stand in unemployment lines and it is terrible they are looking at cutting defense first and not look at entitlement, the pastest growing part of our debt and we're still in war, of course, we are still in war and certainly, just came out of one and so it is time for
6:20 am
refurbishing and replenishing and not time for huge cuts to defense and our military. >> dave: some suggested those cuts could cost our economy 1.5 million jobs, let alone, the problems it brings up in terms of security. scott taylor, thanks for being here and thank you, as always, for your service. good to see you. >> thanks for having me. have a great day. >> dave: you, too. coming up, is mitt romney's face problemat -- faith problematic when it comes to becoming president. and, now a man is suing a vaet to cash in on unused vacation and sick days to the tune of $800,000, after he has been accused of corruption. we're talking about the taxpayers, trying to stop him, ahead.

6:25 am
compassion an charity, and, so forth, and i think if you look at the kinds of things, look, i don't want to diminish the theological differences between mormons and evangelical protestants. those differences are significant. and they have deep historic roots but i think if you look at mitt romney's life, and the way he lived it, in terms of being a faithful husband, for 42 years, raising a wonderful family, helping those who are less fortunate or hurting, really, going out of his way to touch other people, with love and mercy and compassion, been a successful business man and been involved in his community, i mean, isn't this what we want to teach our children to do? so i think the idea that there is a tension between evangelical voters and romney, overthis, is vastly overstated. >> alisyn: there's an interesting poll i want to show you and our viewers, this was a "gallup poll," i believe, from, yeah, june of this year and it asks if your party nominated a
6:26 am
generally well qualified person for president who happened to be a mormon, would you vote for that person? 90% of republicans said yes. 79% of independents and only 72% of democrats said yes. and then, no, 24% of democrats. said no, they would not. again, for a well-qualified person. what is going on with that? >> well, it looks like if you look at the polling, the last acceptable form of religious bigotry is directed against mormons. and, if you look at the gallup data, ali, from last year it found that 4 -- 43% of self-identified liberals said they would not vote for a mormon. thatastonishing figure when you look at the -- senate majority leader, harry rooeeire
6:27 am
a mormon and there is bigotry against the mormons and now it is mostly on the left and it appears to be -- you'll get a debate -- appears to be because the mormons have been in the forefront for example on the marriage issue and significantly active in the proposition 8 effort in california, in 2008, and, in terms of their political views, morp mons tend to be much more in line with faithful -- mormons tend to be more in line with faithful catholics and, secular voters are reacting to that and the electorate is breaking out among partisan lines and look at evangelicals, the opposite is happening, pew research says 71% of evangelicals say they are voting for moromney today, a higher percentage of the evangelical vote than george w. bush got in 2000. >> alisyn: interesting. it will be interesting to see how all of it plays out and if we hear more about mormonism in
