1:03 pm

1:08 pm
it's really about providing armed officers first and then secondly if that is not available to have an armed school staff that is trained and selected. >> reporter: but the white house is standing its ground and accusing republicans of blocking meaningful reform. >> when the president gave a state of the union, all applauded when there was an up and town vote. when the newtown families are not there, politics is the only reason this stuff won't get done. >> reporter: gabrielle giffords wrote about the gun show loophole today. we know how to fix it by blirg a universal background system but some of our elected officials are not listening. one influential senator said, background checks at least deserve a debate. >> i do believe blocking the legislation to come to the floor of senate is not appropriate. >> reporter: he says potential

1:10 pm
yellow. 70 in dallas, 69 in memphis, 69 in new orleans and 51 in newark. 85 in phoenix. we've got changes going on. we'll have a big storm system eject from the rockies. ahead of that we have severe weather erupting around kansas and missouri until 9:00 local time. a severe weather warning for eureka, kansas, bringing winds up to 60 miles an hour and very big hail. so this is going to be an ongoing threat will a three-day event starting monday for all of these areas, including oklahoma, kansas and nebraska and even colorado. tuesday is going to be the worst in terms of all those ingredients for perhaps a tornado outbreak. we could have several tornadoes. look at all of the cities, millions of people in the path
1:11 pm
of this storm system, one of the worst we could see really since last year. then wednesday moving across the mid mississippi river valley. we have some time. make your preparations, you need to know what you are going to be doing if and when you are under a tornado watch or warning. then the cold side of the storm. we're into disciplining but we're going to see feet of snow out of this storm system. quite impressive for april. in some cases, 6-12 inches west of denver. look at rapid city the potential for 18 inches plus into the upper midwest. minneapolis, 6-12 for you. because we have the cold air and warm air ahead of it. all the dynamics for a severe weather outbreak. only 23 in denver. you are going to drop 30 degrees. 75 in kansas city. you can really see as that front
1:12 pm
pushes into this warm unstable air mass, that is why we think we have a potential for a very damaging perhaps life-threatening severe weather outbreak, especially tuesday. where you can see the temperatures contrast in to memphis into new orleans. this will be an ongoing three-day event, one we'll be watching very carefully. if you live in those areas, you need to be knowing what to do if and when you are under a severe watch or warning. >> heather: it's amazing how the temperatures run the gamut across that map. >> it's one of the main ingredients we need for severe weather outbreak. >> heather: thank you so much. >> gregg: turning now to kaufman county, texas, investigators are saying the district attorney visited a gun shop the very day before he and his wife were murdered inside their home. dominic is live in west coast newsroom with more.
1:13 pm
>> reporter: just hours before he and his wife was slain, he went to a local gun store on advice how to protect his workers. they told fox news the district attorney hadn't concerned about his own safety, just that of his staff. he was asking suggestions what they could buy. he advised they should arm themselves with handguns and probably be wearing bulletproof vests. he showed them a specific firearm to consider. take a look. >> when he came in, i actually had him come over and look at this gun. this is one that the police used to have issued. its colt python. this is what they were issued back in the '80s. all the police officers had these. as far as i know this is the last gun mike ever held. >> reporter: they say mike
1:14 pm
mcclellan, he had a variety of firearms and revolvers. police believe that the d.a. may have been running for his own gun when he heard his wife being shot when the killer struck. his body was found at the rear of the house. police are saying he may have also just been trying to get away. there isds on either the suspect or motive behind the murders. and his assistant was killed back in january. the detectives are keeping quiet as far as leads at this time. >> gregg: thanks very much. >> heather: police in carson city, nevada say they have arrested four suspects in connection to the bizarre disappearance of a state employee. a sheriff's deputy say they pulled the body of the state's chief insurance examiner from the carson river. william mctune was reported missing on thursday. four people in custody, two
1:15 pm
facing murder charges. investigators saying the clues show a struggle inside his home. >> this was a very violent act that occurred inside. there is an enormous amount of evidence to be processed. then we will begin the analysis of it. it's going to take us some time. >> this one is pretty shocking. when you have something like this where you believed endangered or something seriously violently happened to a resident here in town and you end up with four people in custody, that is pretty unusual. >> heather: the sheriff is saying there is still processing evidence from inside the home. >> gregg: the electric car maker fisker seemed to have a bright future. the beib liked his, that is not good news. the federal government promised a massive loan coming out of
1:16 pm
your pocket. why is the company in danger of going belly-up. brenda buttner is next. >> heather: we know you are a fan of the beib, gregg? >> and plus a shape and ceremony welcoming the latest member of the fleet. >> gregg: and an airport worker accused of having sticky fingers making off with valuable goods tucked away inside luggage. how they nabbed him still ahead. >> we could see some of the guns had been scanned into the airport but not scanned in getting on to an aircraft. take days to work. for faster relief, try dulcolac laxative tablets. dulcolac provides gentle relief overnight unlike miralax and metamucil that can take up to 3 days. plays a key role throughout our lives. one a day men's 50+ is a complete multivitamin designed for men's health concerns as we age.

>>. >> heather: time for a quick check of the headlines, the u.s.s. arlington is the navy's latest warship. more than 5,000 people attended the ceremony in norfolk. authorities in virginia are searching for a sailboat that may be carrying two boys kidnapped from their grandparents' home. and fashion designer limbly pulitzer died. her dresses was a sensation and
1:21 pm
became a classic. >> fisker that was granted a half a billion dollar federal loan, that is your money, is now on the ropes. on friday they laid off about 75% of the work force triggering a lawsuit triggering a lawsuit. and the law firm is the same firm that did solyndra, green energy company. joining us to talk about this, senior business correspondent, brenda buttner. the lawsuit is the least of figsker's worrying. are they as an automaker finished? >> they fired three-quarters of their work force. the founder is gone. they went to the chinese and even they turned them down for investment money. they are consulting with bankruptcy lawyers. >> gregg: when you go to the bankruptcy division of kirkland
1:22 pm
and ellis and chinese don't want to buy you. look, fisker's demise was really predictable when you compare it to a success story like tesla? >> yes, absolutely. fisker was a design firm and they put out the car that was very expensive, hundred k way before they should have. they got bad reviews. tesla went after the design but so much as the technology. electric cars are difficult. so they looked into the battery pack, battery management and they took that core technology and sold it to places like daimler. so they were able to fund the production of their car. so it's two different models. >> gregg: there is tesla. they made revenues by selling technology and that was their expertise, battery management system, power train. now i understand they are going
1:23 pm
to be turning a profit pretty soon? >> yes, we hope so because they got our money too. >> gregg: figsker vehicle is nice looking car. >> they design cars. it's very beautiful, very expensive and they had a lot of problems with suppliers and so did tesla. tesla worked that out before they started selling the car. >> gregg: energy department claims, i'm reading here, we carefully vetted loan recipients to minimize taxpayer risk. nonsense. are these people at doj or government at large, they are not qualified to be able to look at companies and do what is known as due diligence, determine the risk? >> the proof is in the pudding. if you look at the list of green energy busts. >> gregg: let's put it up on the screen. billions of taxpayer money spent
1:24 pm
on all of these are failures. >> they are. when private venture or venture capital goes into a start-up company. you are going to give us the goods and their money at risk, if they lose it and company goes under, they put up that money, but this is our money. it's very difficult for a government bureaucracy to go and choose a winner in business. >> gregg: the government, whenever you say green energy and failures, they say look there will be a little failure but a low failure rate. i crunched numbers, failure rate of stimulus and other federal government loan programs into these green energy businesses is approximating 30%. now if you are in the business world and you got a 30% -- there is the door. >> when it is teacher money and
1:25 pm
its bureaucracy. it's not a small group of people who know about business saying, i think that car will be able to do it or that car designer. this is bureaucracy and what do they have to lose? >> gregg: the government is inherently inefficient and they are not as smarted as the people in business. so the bottom line here, the government shouldn't be in the business of business? >> yeah, i mean that is what the basic argument comes down to. some of these start-up technologies may need some seed money but not on this order. >> gregg: brenda, thanks very much. you can catch more brenda. >> i don't like justin beiber either. >> gregg: if justin beiber buy your car and crashes it, that is not a good sign. at least the beib is okay. he survived. catch more breand da did a on "bulls and bears" at 10:00 a.m.

1:32 pm
may not be guaranteed in the capital city beginning wednesday. this could indicate some died of planned action. this comes as the u.s. has cancelled a scheduled test of the minute man 3 missile to avoid any chance of ratcheting up the tension further. the at the same time james thurman will not be traveling to washington for congressional testimony this week. he will stay in seoul to monitor the escalating tension there. there has been a lot of talk from north korea in the past but there is a new dynamic at play. >> big difference is the politics in south korea are changing by the day regarding north korea. if there is a provocation, it won't be business as usual. i could see a major war happening if the north koreans overplay their hand. the public in south korea and the united states, i think the whole region is fed up with this guy. >> reporter: new north korean leader had made a series of
1:33 pm
provocative moves in recent months. a missile launch last month and moving a missile to the east coast of north korea. >> gregg: what is the latest reaction from the white house? >> a top white house aide did appear on sunday morning talk shows, they say north korea is further isolating itself. >> we have a situation where north korea is engaging in the behavior we have seen for many years, actions and rhetoric and the key here and onus is on north korea to take a step back, meet their international obligations so they can undertake what they say number one goal which is economic development. >> reporter: chinese president offered a veiled criticism saying no country should be allowed to plunge the region or the world into chaos. >> gregg: steve, thanks. >> heather: president obama preparing to unveil his budget on wednesday. now it reportedly contains cuts
1:34 pm
to entitlement programs and tax increases on the wealthy. both democrats and republicans will have to compromise for it to pass. >> president is having dinner with senate republicans on wednesday night, will continue to talk. we're hoping the conversation right now the approach 6 many republicans, particularly the leadership in the house is my way or the highway. >> heather: joining us now is brad blakeman, assistant to george w. bush and political con sult sul tenant, richard goodstein. let's jump in. based on initial reports, here what the president's plan aims to do, $430 billion to cuts to social security and medicare and $600 billion in new taxes. hasn't even officially presented his plan yet and he is getting push back from both sides. is an agreement possible as it stands as we understand it? >> no, because i don't think the
1:35 pm
president wants a deal, sadly, heather. deals are made around the cabinet table, not the dining room table in some hotel or restaurant in washington that no american could afford. if the president were serious, he would roll up his sleeves and have shuttle diplomacy at white house. the president is trying to distance himself. the president who promised to be most transparent is the most indid he say crypt president we have ever had as far as openness. look no further and budget negotiations. president was supposed to have a budget on or before february first, the president has not produced a budget and never has. >> heather: i want to ask you the same question. the president has brad was discussing he is going to meet with senate republicans 12 of
1:36 pm
them for dinner. lindsay graham seems open to discussion. he is saying while he believes the president's plan is overall bad for the economy. he is quoted that there nuggets of the budget he thinks are optimistic. but then on the president's own side of the aisle you have senator bernie sanders who typically votes democratic saying that he will do everything in his power to block president obama's proposal to cut benefits for social security specifically through that chain consumer price index. what the president's strategy in meeting just with the senate republicans and small group of them? >> i think it's transparent. i understand why bernie sanders is questioning because the president did the exact same thing with the first stimulus, he offered $220 billion in tax cuts thinking it was going to win republicans over and got the back of their hand.
1:37 pm
he wants americans wanted him to do. when republicans were asked, do you want the budget to be tackled, yes. do you want the economy to be boosted and jobs. even more so, by four to one. so on one hand he is trying to make sure the economy has the requisite stimulus. on the other hand he sees what is happening in europe. austerity is not working. i think by reaching out to the republicans i think this dinner is at the white house but reaching out trying to say, look try to meet me somewhere. i think i am staking out where americans wants me to be. paul ryan was on the republican ticket and the republican ticket went down to defeat by 5 million votes. so in the president's mind, we already hashed this out and i don't think the ryan budget has
1:38 pm
won. >> heather: but the ryan budget was closing loopholes. the timing of all of this, even though the president's plan is not coming out until wednesday, details have begun to leak. in fact, just a few hours before the bureau of labor statistics announced the disappointing march jobs numbers. the economy added only 88,000 jobs last month. that is less than half of what some predicted. with this leak that has come out an effort to deflect from the bad jobs report and how if at all does this budget help create jobs? >> if it weren't for the bad news, the obama wouldn't make news, whether bankruptcies, foreclosures or the american people who have given up looking for work. the fact of the matter is, we shouldn't be leaking the president's budget. the president under law should have had his budget on or before february 1st.
1:39 pm
it should have been presented to the american people and then respond to the president's budget. the fact here in washington it takes three to tango. meeting with a couple of senators, republicans, does not make a budget. what we have to do is get the president engaged with the house and with the senate in a bipartisan manner to structure a deal. it's not an hour and a half over dinner or fancy restaurant it's rolling up your leaves sleeves and getting the work done with the parties who can bring a deal together. a handful of senators can't do it. >> heather: thank you both for joining us. we'll see exactly what the details are when it comes out on wednesday. >> gregg: new poll out from a federal judge's ruling ordering a plan "b" contraceptive pill being available over-the-counter. our legal panel is here. using supercomputing and mobile technology
1:40 pm
over our secure network, verizon innovators are building a world of medical treatment data in the cloud. so doctors can make a more informed diagnosis from anywhere, in seconds rather than months. because the world's biggest challenges deserve even bigger solutions. powerful answers. verizon.
1:41 pm
1:42 pm
1:43 pm
1:44 pm
>>. >> gregg: controversial ruling on the morning-after pill stirring debated all over america. a judge on friday ruling that the fda must make that pill available without prescription for girls of all ages overturning a restriction imposed by the obama administration that allowed only women over the age of 17 to get the so-called plan "b" over-the-counter pill. well, let's bring in our legal panel, trial attorney, kerry sentence wilson and marla, the judge thought to limit the access was arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable. that is standard legal jargon you were picking out of thin air the age of 17. was the judge right? >> yes, i believe in this case
1:45 pm
even though it's a very controversial issue and political issue. the judge in this case is looking at the law and block letter law and protocol what you can do to make something a prescription and something non-prescription. in this case, just because you don't like something means that the obama administration obama administration can arbitrarily pick a number. this is age and that is socially why. >> gregg: there has to be justification, some science to it. so skir kir sentence, was the judge right or wrong? >> i believe the judge was right. when we are talking about health and human services, the secretary that was saying for non-scientific reason the age should be 17. even when the fda was in support of this and scientifically saying it's a safe contraceptive and effective, the judge is right. they can't pick this number out
1:46 pm
of thin air. >> gregg: gag prescription means you have to tell mom and dad, that is huge difference? >> the american academy of pediatrics, they were telling pediatricians they should give advanced prescriptions to their young patients so they could avoid the waiting period. this is drug that effective for 120 hours after sex so the sooner better. >> so is the judge reasoning, not every drug is equal in the health secretary, kathleen sebelius was deeply concerned that there was insufficient data on 11 and 12-year-olds. we're not talking about 17 and 18. what about that? >> i mean it's definitely going to be a societal issue we have to look in to. who can buy it and ban like
1:47 pm
cigarettes or alcohol or this drug is being abused. problem we're having the fda has a certain protocol and judge is saying we need to follow the protocol. >> gregg: the fda commissioner who initially wanted this pill available to anybody over-the-counter, that is doctor who is steeped in the knowledge of medicine and science and so forth. she concluded it was safe for all ages. isn't she more qualified than kathleen sebelius, after all, she is a political appointee who knowledge and experience pales in comparison? >> absolutely. it's hard looking at this as a drug. it's safe and effective, therefore it should be regulated the same way. the hot button issue and politics are being injected is one that centers around non-scientific decisions and
1:48 pm
that is what the judge was saying. you can't make decisions on medications for non-scientific reasons. >> gregg: it's tragic we got to this point. there are a lot of parents out there. i'm one of them. do you really want your teenager as 11 or 12 years old to be walking in the pharmacy, i'll take a coke and plan "b" fill. it's a little upsetting, isn't it? >> it's definitely upsetting but that scenario involves a kid who already has sex. as a parent it's separate and distinct from the government regulating behavior. >> gregg: marla, kirsten, good to see you. >> heather: kevin ware rejoining his teammates one week after that horrific leg injury. he may be sidelined for the tournament but his presents owns the bench still crucial to louisville. jim gray gives his perspective
1:49 pm
up next. we went out and asked people a simple question: how old is the oldest person you've known? we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone who's lived well into their 90s. and that's a great thing. but even though we're living longer, one thing that hasn't changed: the official retirement age. ♪ the question is how do you make sure you have the money you need to enjoy all of these years. ♪
1:50 pm
1:51 pm
1:52 pm
>>. >> heather: welcome back after a grew some injury last week, kevin ware helped cheer his team to victory against wichita state.
1:53 pm

tablets which will take over. we have a graphic that shows this prediction. >> the technology research firm is saying, essentially, we will not use computers anymore, we will use tablets almost basically not even have desk tab or laptops. there will be a different mix in the kind of technology we use. we are seeing the prices on tablets going down, the prices on smartphone going down. the lastest, the laptop and the pc, will become obsolete. >>heather: and soft war companies saying that microsoft will be obsolete by 2017. >> the rumor of microsoft's demise have been greatly exaggerated there have been so many times they have been labeled "doomed."
2:22 pm
we are seeing that in this graphic that google's droid will take over windows and apple's operating system and the mac operating system will take over blackberry's rim but the truth is, what microsoft does, they wait to see if a product will succeed. then it jumps in like the 800-pound gorilla and takes over which we have seen with browsers and software and with video games. maybe that is what they are waiting to do with the tablet. >>heather: do they have the capability to do that? >> i would not be the one to say they are going under. we are seeing the use of smartphones and tablets grow. in question that will happen. i would not say microsoft is gone. >>heather: there are predictions made in terms of how they will be used in the future. some of the predictions, the

immediate future. >> imagine you are in your home and someone has broken in and you are huddled in your closet in the dark and you want did make a 91 call but you can't because if you do you will give away your whereabouts. instead, if you can turn on the video on your point and send it to 911 and they could see what was happening, they would know your location, they could send someone out to get you, without you ever saying a word, or, this could have incredible uses for people who are deaf, they could text messages to 9-1-1. i am not sure all of this will happen in the next few years because states are so cash strapped but it is amazing to see that kind of use of technology. >>heather: research is underway right new to see that happen. how realistic is that? >> it is all about money. states do not have the money. the technology is there. i think it will be there in the future. it is very exciting. >>heather: thank yous brenda.

2:30 pm
to postpone a missile test to avoid further escalation of tensions with south korea. tuesday's routine test of a minute man missile will be postponed until next month. they do not want the launch to be misinterpreted or manipulated by north korea. at the same time, the pentagon top commander in the region will not be traveling to washington, dc, as scheduled, to testify before congress. instead, he will stay in south korea to monitor the situation. the young north korean leader, kim jong-un, has moved a missile to the east coast. the government said the safety of foreign diplomats in the capital city, pyongyang, cannot be guaranteed many believe china could hold the key to this whole situation. >> china could cut off their guarantee if they want to. chinese behavior has been very disappointing, whether it be cyber security, whether it be on confrontation in the south china

sea or whether the failure to rein in what could be a catastrophic situation. >> the chinese have a lot of the cards. they are cautious by nature. but they are carrying it to an extreme. they should step up to the plate and put pressure on the north korean regime. >> china could be putting pressure on that regime, because the president of china said today that no country should be allowed to low the region and the world into chaos for selfish gain. he did not mention north korea by name but it is believed three was referring to the belligerent next door neighbor. >>heather: thank you, steve, from washington, dc. >>gregg: analysts are scratching their head after the underwhelming jobs report fell well below expectations. it was abysmal. according to the labor department the jobless rate dropped from 7.7 to 7.6 because

2:33 pm
substantive entitlement reform. it is baby steps and with making more revenue on top of the tax increase that averted the fiscal cliff in january a precondition to beginning negotiations the budget is d.o.i. and criticized from the left and the right. i don't think it is serious. greg it comes after the awful jobs numbers. the total jobs this year less than the total jobs last year. is he now officially presiding over the worst recovery since world war ii? >> the numbers are clear and getting worse. he is posturing on the budget, like ryan, i don't know who is worse going nowhere but the economy situation, 88,000 jobs and half gave up looking for work, the smallest percentage of americans working, looking for
2:34 pm
work, since 1979. this is on top of all the crisis going on with obamacare, getting worse by the day and all of the other factors and he has no land for employment. he is a salesman, it is really nothing. >> you can name blame it on sequestration cuts as the white house did because when you look at the numbers it was a net gain in government jobs. what is it, the higher taxes? is it obamacare? is it everything. >> i think it is a crisis of leadership from the top down in the whole country. we see it every day, crooked politicians getting arrested in new york talking about the atlanta school superintendent and the teachers rigging the s.a.t.'s and church scandal. leadership class in america has betrayed the people they are supposed to lead. i am not saying obama is corrupt, he is not but he has
2:35 pm
not seized this job. >> he presides over a regime of corruption. >> he is the most opaque president and presides over corruption everywhere, but it is a corrupt system and he is all for it but when he goes to california, raises a million something dollars or whatever --. >> but he gave back 5 percent of the pay. >> and keeps the white house closed. >> this guy is in the business of being a salesman but saying we should not raise money, this is terrible, but give me your money so nancy pelosi can be speaker. >>gregg: doug the poll average of president obama, his approval rating is now 48 percent, and his disapproval is 46 percent, so he is below 50 percent, almost neck and neck with himself. so, look at the rasmussen pole,
2:36 pm
right track? a scant 35 percent. the wrong track, 57 percent. doug, you have worked for a president, the guy at top always gets the blame. does he deserve it here? >> i think the lack of leadership that pat and john are talking about is really the problem that the american people are focusing on. they giving him responsibility. they are holding him accountable. rightly so. the fear, politically, in the white house is this is a slide that could become impossible. >> what has changed in the five months? >> north real estate is -- north korea is going to war with us. >> and we are backing off our own test. >> and the ultimate was with iran, we are going to stop iran. total disaster.

not even covered in the wake of this. he is weak at home. the only person who gets this guy, and of course, is kim jong-un. >> he does better than the republicans. >>gregg: the president's huge initiative on gun control is going nowhere this week, it looks to be dead in congress. why has he been so ineffectual in pushing for that which he claimed he wants? >> he is measured where the public is. they don't want what he has proposed. after newtown we were on the show the four of us and we discussed that biden and the president were talking about video game violence, hollywood violence, mental health programs and gun. guess what? three months later, no mention of mental health, no mention of video games or hollywood, it is same old stuff. >>gregg: and obamacare in many
2:38 pm
ways seems to be coming apart. now he cannot get the exchanges going, it will be a year or two and congress voted to repeal the medical device tax with 79 senators voting against that and premiums are going up, doctor shortage now at 140,000 predicted in the next 10 years. workers are poised to lose their coverage, the opposite of what he promised. that's hurting him, too. isn't it? >> the pole data shows that the american people continue to be against obamacare. they don't believe it will save the money and with the exchanges disappearing the prime element of compensation is gone. bottom line, politically, the lack of leadership, the drift in the country, the fact that the president's lost the agenda, and control of the agenda. >> quickly, pat in.
2:39 pm
>> there is counter narrative. >> that is true. that is the best thing the president has going. 9 only thing he has going. >> has anyone seen a republican in the last two weeks? >>gregg: maybe just watch the self-destruction occur. >> all right. lots of buzz about hillary clinton's future in politics. she has not said she will make a go of the 2016 presidential election but her next move could dictate whether other potential contenders get in the game. our political insiders will be back in a flash. ♪

aggressive hillary clinton? is she a changed agent? just a person surrounded by hacks? james carville will go to her super pac, what does that tell you? >>gregg: she represents the establishment. what is old in politics. not what is new. >> she does if you look at her as her and her husband but if you look at her, hillary clinton the woman you have the thing of the women's movement and time to have a woman, we have had our first african-american president and new we want our first female president, has nothing to do, pro or con with solving our problems. that is what elections are supposed to be about not examples of social change. >> you worked for her husband, doug, when he was president. she will run, right? >> i believe she is going to run. i believe the speech on friday suggested very strongly she is going to run as a change agent talking about empowering women,

minorities and the like. she understands, i think, given the drift we talked about in the first segment of policy, it is best for her to stay as far away from washington, dc, literally, and met metaforically, as possi. she could get the nomination and be elected. >> she can get the nomination but four years ago it was hers. understand one thing, with obamacare or whatever what you are saying, she will be change agent by running on the sexual identity, i'm a woman, we should help people, that does not solve the problem. the vacuum is the republicans having no message, getting the establishment. she is surrounded by that. these people are hacks, hacks.

>>gregg: rubio beats rand paul and jeb public, what does that say about the republican party? >> two stories. hillary clinton isn't winning so were as the republicans are losing. >>gregg: what is wrong with these guys? >> they are republican. they have the "r" and if you are a republican before but christie is out of the box. a little different so he is running better the we started out for this segment with unemployment numbers and pat direly predicted a bad economic future. that is where we headed for 2016. >> another recession? >> could be that but it is stagnation, anyway, where we will not grow a healthy economy. >>gregg: got to guy, guys, and doug down in south beach, save a couple of martinis for us.
