"fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ ♪ >> so, good morning,. >> good saturday morning, everyone. did you have a wonderful thanksgiving. >> yes, we missed you. >> i missed i. i would say i did not wake up early enough to show. i heard it was great. >> what you should do on thanksgiving when you are off. >> you spent the holiday with 20 people. >> we always have a big thanksgiving dinner. including you next year. keep that in mind. >> i didn't get the invite until today. >> a lot of people on the road getting back from thanksgiving plans from their in-laws' house and so forth there is a new study we will bring to you in a short while the most annoying driver in the car? is it the spouse or kids?
>> ready or not the owe become that administration self-imposed web site deadline is here. in fact, it's too hours from right now. it's already off to a rocky start. james rosen is live for us in washington with the very latest. veins? >> tucker, handna, and clayton, good morning. you know, it's only in these pre-dawn post thanksgiving hours we feel safe here on fox news in quoting neil young, it wasn't supposed to go down this way. the much balihooed relaunch not official relaunch of obamacare.gov outage from 8 last night to 8 this morning. that's seven hours longer than the usual daily outage time. the services for medicaid and medicare services the division of health and human services department that administered the web site announced the extended deadline a few hours before mid night without any explanation or how serious
setback it represents for the long troubled online portal participation in president obama's signature law. administrators do boast some improvements since problems when the web site first materialized in a big way. to wit the after launch time 8 seconds now down to 1 second. pages are said to be loading incorrectly 1% of the time. more visual cues have been added for smoother navigation of the overall site. major problems. verifying users' identities when they apply to for subsidize insurance coverage. not always transmitting accurate data for enrollees. processing payments for insurers still have not been built. former director of the office of manage and budget jeff joins tapped to oversee healthcare.gov presided 24/7 tech surge command center or war room providing what the
administration has promised will be a significantly different user experience come -- well, come today. zions and his team predict that 50,000 simultaneous users should be able to log. in 800,000 over the course of any given day, just not right now. >> james rosen on this harvest moon, you have a heart of gold. >> very good, clayton. >> this is what the white house spokesperson this morning that today is not a relaunch date for the web site. i'm quoting november 30th is not a magical date it is a magical date. it's exactly the date we were patrol car missed by secretary kathleen sebelius the site will be working now they say it won't be. when you have this magical date set why the obama administration to be up and running again. take down their web site right before the launch and as we have been checking in throughout the night to see if it's been up and running to james' point it has been there, it hasn't been there.
to reach that 50,000 perfect person traffic goal come this week, there are all of these things that james just pointed out that still aren't in place. processing payments. >> that's kind of a big deal. >> you think? >> payments isn't up and running yet. isn't built yet. >> that's one of the issues. charles krauthammer says you know what? don't believe everything you hear either. is this more spin from the white house. is he calling this basically a fraud, listen. >> they had announced this when they were in trouble at the near of october as we are going to have it fixed. there is a tape you showed yesterday of way it was supposed to be working. this is simply another example of administration that's not only can't shoot straight but can't talk straight. everything they tell you about obamacare, everyone knows is a fudge or a hedge or a guess or a prayer or an outright deception. this is another one of
those, you know, that's multiple choice, a, b, c, d, or e. you choose which one you want but it's not the truth. >> accord to the "wall street journal" too. the accurate time sending information to the insurers. one of the reasons they are still deal with on healthcare dot gof. do you trust the web site with that sensitive information or is it vulnerable to hacking or vulnerable to something being inadvertently sent to the wrong pepper. >> if we taken this money and sent it to sick people we would have done more for health and wellness in this country. the ratio is 50 to 1 as of this morning. every person that's received health insurance through healthcare.gov, 50 have lost their health insurance because of obamacare. not a good ratio. >> remarkable. deadline is approaching. december 23rd. still having trouble getting on the web site and processing payments and having them connect with the
databases. coming forward and may want to push for the delay of the march 31st final deadline and push it back even further. president obama is taking a hit right now. he is at the lowest approval rating of his presidency. he sat down last night with barbara walters on 20/20 who addressed some of these issues about weather center people have thought i has lied about the rollout of obamacare and if he is trustworthy? >> are you worried that you won't be able to get things done because of this lack of support? >> well, barbara, if you remember, i have gone up and down consistently throughout. the good thing is when you are down you have got nowhere to go but up. >> it's hard to sit opposite to you, mr. president, and say this. a lot of the criticism is personal people just don't think you are trustworthy. >> i don't think that's true, barbara. the truth of the matter is i got reelected because in
part trustworthy and working on behalf. mediocre two term president. which are you? >> i think the best would be a good two term president. that's what i'm going to be shooting for. >> they will say in his legacy is he going to be a good one as far as healthcare is concerned, as far as revamping the entire thing. but, if not, this web site, this deadline happening today it could be the tipping point it means his reputation is going the other way and senate democrats running for the hilings. especially the ones up for re-election. >> it's not about him really. it's not about his personal popularity. it's about whether the ideas that he espouses work or not. i hope republicans keep their eye on the ball here. it's not about do you trust obama? he will be gone in three years. do his ideas work? there is a referendum on that right now with obamacare and so far they aren't working. >> more largely too.
do these liberal progressive ideas that government can solve your problems. is that something that the democrats in 2014 will have to run on. run from. death of ideology, too. other stories making headlines overnight. breaking news to tell you about. start with a fox news alert out of alaska where four people have been killed after a small plane went down there overnight. the pilot is among the dead. the single engine cessna crashed neither village of st. mary's in the person part of the state. 10 people were on board at the time. no world on the condition of the others. to glasco, scotland where at least six people have been killed after a police helicopter crashed into a busy pub. the bar packed with over 100 people at the time there -- three people on board the helicopter, two officers and a civilian as well. still no word on their condition. witnesses say the whole scene was who are -- horrific. >> don't know -- smoke came.
hear people screaming. >> still unclear what caused the crash. one eyewitness saying the dropper dropped. >> brand new video released overnight showing war veteran captured in north korea. you may remember newman was grabbed off the claim leaving the country a month ago. the video was released by a state run news agency. shows newman for apoll devising during crimes he committed during the korean war. they are notorious from coercing statements from prisoners. the news agency is also releasing this signed apology from newman. >> and it's romney to the rescue. when a car carrying four people crashed into a house in utah commit's -- mitt's

>> welcome back, appear began president harmid karzai determine the long term presence of the u.s. military in his country. according to a top commander in his. joseph said this about karzai i don't know if he fully realizes the risks. he certainly understands it from an afghan perspective. i don't know if he appreciates fultly what the implications are are for the
united states. >> what does this road block mean for the united states here to weigh in as fox news military analyst general jack keane? good morning to you. >> good morning. what do you think about this? is this going to be a strategic plunder similar to what we saw in iraq if this happened? >> well, it certainly could be. the fact of the matter is karzai is a material, somewhat pair noise leader who is trying to avoid being a lame duck here and therefore irrelevant. he has six months to go i think why should made make it about the strategic long-term. security agreement we are trying to get signed is really a major step towards that long-term relationship. we should focus on that. eventually we are going to have a new president seven months from now. and we shouldn't make the same mistake that we did in iraq. and react emotionally to this incident, act impulsively and then wind up with no deal that would be a
tragedy for the investment we have made here for 12 years. >> general, you say that karzai is paranoid and yet the obama administration is saying it's going to allow him to decide wrnt the united states leaves troops in afghanistan. haven't we earned the right to make that decision unilaterally? we could but we have made the decision this is a bilateral agreement. the fact is we don't have to make it decision with karzai. we can make it with his successor. karzai is going to come around. loya injury ga go jirga was held. i think that pressure will mount on him. >> general keene, i know one of the things that karzai is upset about is u.s. soldiers going into the homes of civil yaps in afghanistan. what do we need to do as we
are negotiating to try to get something inked and done? >> well, first of all, we have to be able to go into homes. that's where the enemy hides out. so the fact of the matter is, after we get a bilateral security agreement. and i'm convinced we will, we will still continue to have special operation forces. conducting raids against high value targets hiding. we need to have those authorities if we are going to be able to conduct the kind of operations we need to do. i'm convinced we will eventually get there. >> finally, general, democracy doesn't seem to have made the middle east any more stable pro-person american. wouldn't it be easier to install a pro-american leader in afghanistan? well, we have had hult mel elections now. it's really in the afghan's hands. they are going to have an election here pretty soon. we will get a new president. i don't think it will be a
transformational leader. somebody who will make some incremental change to what we already have. it will take us multi-generations to get to a mature democracy much as it did in korea. sometimes our expectations are far too much in terms of being able to impose democracy in these countries that have no history of it. >> thanks for sure. general keene thanks for joining us. >> have a good day. coming up on "fox & friends" weekend. you can really teach kids about the gettysburg address without mentioning the civil war and abraham lincoln? according to the government's new education standards you sure can, next. >> that's just unbelievable. >> and forget about the pope, guess who is this year's choice for "times" man of thier? miley cyrus. we will explain that or attempt to.
>> quick headlines for you. investigation is underway to figure out what caused a commuter ferry from new york city to crash into new jersey pier. the ferry was carrying 24 passengers and three crew members when this crashed. seven people were hurt. should be just fine according to doctors. suspending incognito's suspension but no longer go without a paycheck. as part of an agreement he will be paid retroactively and receive game checks next two weeks. amended to $232,000 each. clayton. >> is it possible to teach students the meaning behind president lincoln's famous gettysburg address without mentioning the civil war.
according to the common core education standards that's the best way to do it. forget about the civil war. told remain from giving background context or substantial instructor gid dance. the close reading forces students to rely exclusively on the text and level playing field for those seeking to comprehend lincoln's address. with us is jim surgess. >> jim, when you first heard of these standards, this particular piece of information as it relates to gettysburg address, what was your response? >> there is a nationwide controversy around common core what it means for kids in the classroom and my organization pioneers who has done the most research on this in the country, there are lots of reasons why we are probably one of the most foremost opponents of common core. the standards themselves are mediocre. they cut the amount of literature in the classroom by about half. they constitute billions of dollars in unfunded mandates
in states and localities. even if you set aside the constitutional question whether the federal government should be involved in education, there are three federal statutes that prohibit the federal government from having any critic la choices and instructional practice guides. this article, and there are hundreds of articles written around the country because teachers and legislators and parents are coming to understand what this means because it's being implemented now. this one article in the "the washington post" highlights that there is a 30 page instructional practice guide that says to teachers exactly what you said. refrain from mentioning any of this. the thing is, this is not an anomaly within common core. part of their reading philosophy, if you will. the idea is that in their minds it's unfair to suppose that kids have some sort of historical context for this stuff. >> unfair? >> they say it's unfair. this is called race to the top but it seems to me race
to the bottom. they are rushing for the least common denominator. i couldn't agree with you more. diane ravitch says: president reagan -- president lincoln standing there the cons is he creation of that cemetery. how you cannot be able to describe the context of that war in the classroom providing those -- those incredible words that president lincoln said that day? >> i completely agree. look, no mention of that thing called the civil war. no mention of the a 1,000 americans, confederate and union who died there no mention of the purpose of lincoln can's trip. removing human agency from history which is really truly remarkable. for folks out there who are windchilling it who say is
this just one weak link in an overall solid package of standards? the fact is no, the architect of common core is now the head of the college board. the entity that develops the sat and other college tests as recently as october he restated his position. he said there is no reward, quote, unquote, for students to seek to understand the purpose of lincoln's trip. onto me that sounds a lot like maybe the kids will get some sound, they won't get any fury and no reason and signify nothing. >> to understand that the night before in the town's square he was sitting in the room writing it out on the backs of envelopes and working on that speech and not understand that context is a travesty for american history. the executive director of pioneer institute. thanks for joining us this morning bright and early. >> clayton, thanks for having me. >> coming up here on the show, shopping frenzy caught on camera. taser fight. violence breaking out over black friday. was the deal really worth it? as you hit the road for the

world? >> you are it. quitsy. you you are it. >> guy! enough! >> one of my favorite movies ever. >> that happens. >> incredible rate. >> it's thanksgiving weekend. chances are you are on the road this weekend. the question is maybe something you are already thinking about, who is the most annoying person to drive with? there is actually a study on this. >> overwhelmingly, i am actually kind of surprised by this. i thought it it would have been the 3-year-old in the back who constantly asks you for things and you want them to quiet down for a few moments? no, number one, is my spouse. 36% of you said that your spouse was the most annoying person who drive with. >> followed by a friend at 22%. my mother, 16%. my father 9%. other 8%. my teenage son 5%. my teenage daughter 4%. >> this just shows how completely irrational people are. that whether or not a person is annoying is not correlated at all to whether or not can he drive. your spouse presumably is a
good driver, adult, right? >> you think. >> your teenage sunday and teenage daughter. i have teenage daughter who drives. just flat out dangerous. >> sometimes the people you get the most mad at are the people you love the most, too. not getting mad about the driving. you are getting mad because you didn't take the trash out earlier and left the toothpaste all over the sink and stuff like that. maybe these other problems add up a. and that's why you spouse? >> my wife complains i drive too fast why don't do you that? complain that she drives like a grandma. constantly hits the brake. her sister calls her brakester. she rides the brake the whole time. stop doing that stop doing that we have allowed us to have three complaints in the car. after have you used up allotment of three. you can't complain on the road trip anymore. >> you know what the key is, i have decided? flying? >> no, that's worse. >> no one is ever mad at the pilot for flying in an annoying way. just fly.
>> take some dramamine which happens to me with the gas and the brakes, the two feet drivers that do the gas and brake all the time. take dramamine pass out and all the annoying habits go away anyway. >> the reason trarges not annoying in car texting with their phone or driving. >> do i have a teenage daughter over here? i didn't even know i did. let us know what you think. oh, here. the most annoying driving habit. following too closely to another driver. >> driving too fast. that's not annoying. driving too slow say 10%. >> another thing that drives me nuts is if you have the windows down in the front but not in the back and then the pressure going down the highway hurts your ears. >> helicopter sound? >> dad flicks a cigar ash on you in the backseat. >> playing with the heater and making them too hot? who is the most annoying
person for you to drive with facebook.com/ff weekend. >> throwing cash out the car window. rick reichmuth never annoying standing by. >> taxi driver who can't keep the pressure on the accelerator? it's this constant like pumping of the gas. >> it makes you completely motion sick. especially when you are texting which is what i am doing in the backseat. all that cold air we have been dealing with, retreated back up into canada and alaska which is where most of us would like it to be but don't get used to it. coming back again in a really big way by wednesday of this week. temps are going to be around 35 to 40 degrees below your averages across much of the western part of the country, certainly the rockies. the cold air is coming again. this morning you are not looking all that bad across the u.s. we are going to watch a little bit of a disturbance
mf across the northeast tomorrow and into monday. nothing that's going to cause major problems. dusting across interior sengszs with some snow. keep a little bit of cloud cover and maybe a quick shower anywhere from new york city off to the east. tomorrow though, i guess a lot of people thinking about heading back home after this holiday, and the airports are going to be looking great. no big problems expected at all. cool temperatures around the great lakes. for the most part see plenty of sunshine. one little problem the pacific northwest but not a ton of flights originate out of there. we aren't relying on those airplanes but see some delays around the seattle and portland area. >> thanks, rick. a lot of people weighing in already. a lot of men saying they are the worse. mark shepard sesame, the more i drive the better. >> that's very aware of you. >> or maybe an excuse to take a snooze. >> on to the rest of your morning headlines a illness strikes on the las vegas strip. 13 kids and five adults hospitalized after getting
sick at the rio hotel. early signs point to food poisoning. officials say it will take time to pinpoint a cause. flu like symptoms we can't tell. we don't know the source it could be airborne virus or could be foodborne. we don't know the answer to that. >> a full investigation is planned. children were part of a football team visiting from california for a tournament. the mom who made national headlines when she posted posted this photo you are about to see what's the excuse has been temporarily banned from facebook. maria king, known as the fit mom, wrote a post complaining about a group thean courages plus size women to post photos of itemselves in lingerie to show what real women look like. if her post she wrote we need to change this strange mentality we are breeding in the mentality in the united states. post flag by another user and. the post was taken down by mistake and reinstated her profile.

today is the obama administration's deadline to improve healthcare.gov. while the program's problems are evident, very evident, the press has been showing their support with positive news coverage. and now the "new york times" paul krugman, a reliable white house lap dog is comparing the obamacare scandal to benghazi. wrote this in his column. conservatives are operating on the assumption it's irredeemable disaster that they can ride all the way to 2016. but the facts on the ground are getting better by the day. obamacare will turn into obamacare. nobody cares about. >> here now the seton motley. thanks for joining us this
morning. >> less government. not big government. >> less government. so i guess the point here well is two fold. krugman is suggesting that benghazi is not a real scandal. going on to say that in three years from now, obamacare will actually be a help to the president and not something that's going to hurt democrats. do you buy that? >> well, they have to say that because the man in charge, president obama is not backing down. so they can't back down. it's very difficult to imagine five to 6 million people or policy holders, let be clear about that getting home from their day at work likely shortened by obama care, opening their mail over the kitchen counter, getting a cancellation letter and then sitting down to the nbc nightly news and having brian williams tell them hey owe he bama care is fantastic. this is the best direct mail campaign that any conservative or republican campaign could come up with. it's all of these millions
of cancellation letters. and, remember, they are phonying numbers up on their side. medicaid signups as wins. every cancelled policy is just a policy. finance a family of four, that's four people danged by obama care's one cancellation. so this -- unlike benghazi, which is real scandal, don't get me wrong, i'm going it mention this only as a way to the comparison as they are. vitally important to the four dead americans. vitally important to our national security. vitally important to the americans of four americans. doesn't reach the broader audience. unfortunately. >> know think it's an entirely fair point. >> fast and furious, brian terry's family is damaged. we should care about it. but we don't because it doesn't affect us directly the way coming home and getting that cancellation letter does water carrier
for the obama that administration. >> does his back hurt yet? and democrats in general. you see this pattern where the white house faces some kind of scandal of its own making and immediately rallies the troops with meetings with left-wing media figures. there has been a ton of them. put it up on the screen, november 21st, 2003, in response to obamacare, june of 2000 ', response to nsa scandal. a.p. and james rosen spying scandals. december of 2012. in response to bush tax cut fight. when they have a problem. they take their message to their supporters in the media and there are many. will this continue to work? >> there was a little spiraled notebook in the green room here that said steno pad. and i imagine an outside journalist that covers the white house had been here. because there is -- stenographer pool. they are not a reporting pool. this is going to work less and less. because in 2009 when they were doing it, hope and
change was gassy rhetoric. there was no meat on the bones yet. we are now five years into meat on the bones, and the cumulative effect of benghazi and fast and furious and irs, and james rosen, that's starting to seep out beyond the second watch that do this every day. combine that fact with, again, a million policy holders and families getting letters saying you are out of your insurance that you have had for a 5, 10, 12 years, it's just a coincidence this obamacare year. >> it's a little hard to blame bush for that for sure. >> it's getting -- if you had your policy since before the bush administration and all of a sudden it's cancelled probably not bush's fault. >> seton motley founder of less government. thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much, sir. >> they say no good deed goes unpunished. meet the woman taking in those in need for 30 years into her own home.

want. obama administration self-imposed deadline is here today. already off to a bit of a rocky start. james vofn in washington with the very latest on this. nice to see you this morning. >> good morning to you clayton, anna and tucker. healthcare.gov is usually down for maintain men's 1 to a eastern time. according to a banner on home site. the site would be down from 9 eastern last night through will 8 eastern this morning. i did just try it and it seemed to be going okay. no explanation given for the outage. validate a prediction by the republican chairman of the house energy and commerce committee. we have been down this road before said congressman fred upton of michigan in a statement issued yesterday often. as officials looked us in the eye for months, pledging to the american people that everything was on track. and we now know what the chaos behind the scenes that it was on track for disaster. what reason do we have, upton concluded to believe things will be different
now? for president obama, the last six weeks have brought great expectation and intense strain. the web site's problems coupled would with a wave of cancellation. undermining his assurances if people liked their policies they could keep them. with his job approval ratings hitting record lows, his competence and. the president sat for the first lady excruciating exercise described as a theater of national revenge the barbara walters interview. >> i got reelected in part because people did think i was trustworthy and they knew i was working on their behalf. the bottom line is, barbara, i don't know any president who hasn't gone through certain periods during their presidency. >> it's a hard job. i'm fortunate to be living with a man who has a long view of this job, who understands that in the case of healthcare, that this is
all about the folks who don't have insurance. the folks that he sees every single day. >> administrators say 50,000 simultaneous users should be able to log in to healthcare.gov today. 800,000 over the course of the day. back to you in new york. >> we're going to check it. over to the great james rosen. >> it could be a make or break moment for the president. >> very artic could you la that man snch sounds like the web site is going to be loading a little bit better than before. maybe more ecstatically pleasing. buff we found out that the part of the web site that is used to basically pay the insurers, hasn't even been built yet according to the "wall street journal." >> but it's pretty though. it's really pretty. the obama administration saying through a spokesman last night that today is not a, quote, magic day. this is not a relaunch of the obama in care web site. wait a second, wasn't it kathleen sebelius say to congress this was a magic day. we have been waiting three years, hundreds of millions
of dollars this is the day and it's not going to work. here is the question. why hasn't she been fired? >> why has no one been fired for this debacle inside the white house? >> rejiggering and creating a war room. jeffrey zions creating war room to look at the engineering. no one was fired. instead what they did was brought them all together in one room so they can work more collaboratively. >> she got up in front of congress saying november 30th this will be done and if not, today is the day, we have 55 minutes until this relaunch and it's not going to work. >> success is only 80%, mind you. if it's working 80% for the majority of the people for the majority of the time then it's going to, with. i think it's a lot easier to reboot a web sight though than it is to, you know, power down or to reboot the trust of the american people what's that what allen west is saying about this. the president's credibility is being called into question. >> this is erode in the
confidence and credibility not just of the obama administration but of president obama himself. and even worse, the political ramifications it's going to have that goes throughout the democrat party is going to be absolutely chilling. because they can't explain this away anymore. i believe that you will see internal pressure within the democrat party to say we have got to put this thing on time-out. we have got to, you know, look at how do we go back to the drawing board, really. now, the question is, is the president willing to set aside his arrogance and really look at this healthcare law, this policy and say, you're right, with this thick is total -- this thing is totally unworkable. >> what a shame this would be if the only take away from obamacare is that the president lacks credibility. the president is leaving in three years. we should take a deeper look what this means. this calls into question the ideas behind obamacare. is it a good idea that we are all in this together? can the government administer something as complicated as the american healthcare system? these are the questions
should be talking about. is it believable? he will be gone. >> the stays are doing pretty well. new york state web site working pretty well. when you get the federal government, and federal government marshall be all of your resources you have issues. >> why don't i take responsibility for my own healthcare. here is a radical thought. maybe it's up to me to buy my own health insurance and make sure my family is covered. not up to dad in the federal government. >> nope. you have until december 23rd to get on healthcare otherwise you get a penalty. >> 53 minutes until we figure out what the web site is going to be looking like on the deadline. other morning. breaking news overnight. fox news alert out of alaska where four people have been killed after a small plane went down there overnight. infant boy among the dead as well as the plane's pilot. the single engine cessna crashed near the village of st. mary's. 10 people on board at the time. no word on the company of the others. to glasco, scotland now

city ordinance for the amount that she has had in her home. helped about 90 people over the last three decades. domestic violence victims. homeless victims, military members, but there is the city ordinance that says that there are more than three people under one roof who are unrepresented and not allowed. the city has been turning a blind eye or they didn't know it was going on what have you. a neighbor has complained about it. so now this woman is not sure what to do. she has ha for sale sign in her yard. she may move away so she can continue helping people. >> a law was passed to allow boarding houses from popping up in a neighborhood. she is not running a border house. she is competing with the government which believes it has a monday nopefully on helping other people. they want to crush individual initiative behind helping your neighbors. >> we don't know and we will talk to debbie. he she will join us 9:30 on
the show. people wandering the streets out in the yard. became a bit of a nuisance for neighbors? did the city get wind of it because of that. >> do you think she is doing a better job helping those in need or the local protective services agency which one do you think is doing a better job of helping people and who is doing it more effectively? >> weigh in. hit us up on facebook or twitter. we will be talking to her later in the show. thanked to the botched rollout now even the president's party. can dems survive election in 2014? fair and balance deed bait next. >> we all know the movie the christmas story. but you never knew it was almost never made. 30 years ago how this movie almost never came to be. ♪ ♪ etables

democrats took a licking in the midterm elections and of course the president went on to get reelected in 2012. i think we are seeing another situation probably similar now in 2014 when you look at the real clear politics generic ballot which is to say do you want to see a republican or democrat win for congress in your area? the republicans are up a point now. they were down six points right after the shutdown. just in october. and so now they are up one. and i think that if you look at the way the democrats are behaving in terms of keeping their distance from the president, i think they are clearly smelling trouble for themselves ala 2010 or perhaps 19994. president obama trying to calm fears with them and maybe move that march 31st deadline for obamacare. some of the democrats trying to distance themselves. >> i don't know if that's true. much faster. less than a second, used to
take 8 seconds. california is definitely up in terms of its people. these kind of glitches are just going to be short in the memory in the long run in 2014 when the site is fixed and when it's operating. i'm not worried. >> but, web site aside though, jim, structurally does obamacare work? the problems with the young people signing up? we saw those nfl ads rolled out to try to rope in some of the younger people not signing up so forget the web site. >> right. you can forget the web site and including the gruesome article in "newsweek" up now about -- the company cgi on all their waste, fraud and abuse documents. simple m.r.i. go to the reality on whether more people are going to have health insurance in november of 2014 because they signed up on obamacare as opposed to they lost it because their policy didn't rate. look, the challenge here for the republicans is to keep this issue front and center how did this happen and
remind voters in addition are you happy with the economy? >> health care costs have gone down all over for this country. and it's really due to some the structural changes in obamacare. i think the democrats actually have something winning, jim, i really do. democrats up in 2014 don't agree with you, running the other direction. every democrat in a red state is desperate to find some way to vote against, repeat against obamacare. they voted for it the first time. >> they may -- jim and ellen thanks for joining us this morning. we hope you have a wonderful weekend. thanks for getting up with us. >> thank you. >> best story you will hear all day. beloved pooch went missing after a tornado separated him from thinks owner. how he was recovered under the rubble a week later. not sure what to get the man in your life for christmas? stick around. my gadget guide for dads is next. that's why we are doing this

due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis ifyou have an artificial heart valve abnormal bleing. while taking eliquis, yomay bruise more easily and it m take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures.

[ laughter ] >> in my early years, which was the 1980s, i gan my career on the day ronald reagan was first sworn n 1981. and i had always been been a hardliner on foreign policy i been one of those what were called national security democrats or cold war liberals so. my writing in the 1980s on policy is not much different than from what it would be today. i was writing for a liberal
magazine but i wrote a lot of stuff stuff. one editorial i wrote for the new republic attacking the nuclear freeze is the dumbest idea of the decade. caused more cancelled subscriptions to that magazine than any in the previous history of the magazine. >> congratulations. >> i was extremely proud. >> my hero at the time when i was in my 20's, was that senator from washington state scoop jackson. tough on the soviets. but soft on domestic policy. i handed out leaflets for him in the 1976 democratic primary in massachusetts. but then during the 80's and 90's on domestic policy i changed. i didn't have an ah-ha moment. i didn't have any pif pitt epiphany the social science, empirical evidence started coming. in it showed not only did it
not do anything, not only was the money wasted but it was destroying the communities it was supposed to help. i'm open to empirical evidence. i was a physician, you know. if you give your patients a pill and it's killing them, you stop giving the medicine. and i think it's the old adage, you know, winston churchill said if you are not a socialist when you are 20 you have no heart. if you are still a socialist when you are 50 you have no head. i developed a head over those years. >> you have evolved this far over the last 30 odd years philosophically. where are you still evolving? what is your mind changing on. >> i stopped evolving about 20 years ago. >> good for you. >> i'm frozen. i haven't had a new idea since 1990. you know, evolution only takes you so far. changing my views on domestic policy was not that great a leap. i still believe in the
ideals intensions of a deep society. society has an obligation to the helpless and those who can't help themselves obligation that the elderly should not be destitute. reactionary. refuses aat that particular time institutions established a century ago. which were appropriate a century ago. social security was instituted in 1936. life expectancy at the time was 62. it's now 80. the idea that you hear from pelosi and reid and other democratic leaders that we are not going to touch a hair on the head of social security is simply insane. if you don't adapt it to longevity and you don't adapt it to the high tech medicine have to the change in demographics. it's going to die. i think it's the conservatives ultimately are the ones who are realistic about how to retain these ideals.

hey there, good morning. it's saturday the 30th of november. i'm anna kooiman and we start with a fox news alert. times up. it's deadline day for the bam ma care website. the administration is path itself on the back calling it a success. is it too a little too late? a live report from washington straight ahead. she's trying to help others by opening her home. but now the government wants to punish her for her good deeds. we've got details coming up. forget the pope. if guess who is the choice for this year's time person of the
year? that's right. miley cyrus. we'll explain. fox and friends hour four starts right now. hi, this is jane seymour and you're watching fox and friends which is by far the most fun show ever. >> imagine you're waking up at 9:00 a.m. and the first thing you see is the announcement that miley cyrus is going to be the time person of the year. i just want to let you know, stay tuned. >> further confirmed by the fact that rick reichmuth was just singing one of her songs off of the air. >> a lot of people are saying this is a cry for help. is it cool marketing or smart marketing. >> don't worry. things are not as bad as we've suggested. you have to stay tuned. >> it's one hour into sort of the relaunch of healthcare.gov. a fox news alert, just one hour
ago the obama administration self imposed deadline arrived. is the site up and working this morning? james rose season live in washington to tell us. good morning. >> reporter: i will do it for you guys without twerking. despite the announcement last night of an 11-hour outage on healthcare.gov set to end this morning, the site seemed to be working well this entire morning. the average launch down is now down to less than one second reportedly for most user. pages are loading uncorrectly less than 1% of the time. however, problems remains, including the fact the tools for processing payment haven't even been built. for president obama, the problems of the website have been coupled with the cancellation of insurance
policies for millions of people across the nation. he was slow to acknowledge that he had promised otherwise repeatedly and the entire episode has plunged him to the lowest job approval ratings of his presidency. >> it's hard to sit opposite you, mr. president, and say this, a lot of the criticism, it's personal. people just don't think you're trustworthy. >> well, i don't think that's true, barbara. the truth of the matter is that i got reelected in part because people did think i was trustworthy and they knew i was working on their behalf. i think the bottom line is, barbara, that i don't know any president who hasn't gone n periods during their presidency, maybe george washington might be the exception. >> and first lady michelle obama was at the president's side during that interview. back to you guys in new york. thank you very much. james rosen in washington.
one thing the president said is correct, which is the president's approval rating goes up and down over which nobody has complete control. so it think i would be an error to peg the success of the obama care to his success. does it save money or doesn't it and we'll find out. >> yeah, you know, democrats are going we have got to get this thing going and glitch free. 80% in the private sector probably wouldn't be -- >> you would be out of business so faster. 80% of the time we'll get your order right? bankruptcy immediately. >> we know that the bounce rate for people who get frustrated with web sites is a fraction of a second. but if you have no choice though, you have no choice because you know a deadline is approaching you have to get health care or you're going to
get a penalty, you have to keep going back. the lieutenant said that democrats need to be reasonably panicked because if the deadline approach and the website doesn't work they're going to have to answer to their constituency. >> this has eroded the confidence and credibility of the obama administration and president obama himself. and even worse the political ramifications it's going to have is going to be absolutely chilling. because they can't explain this away anymore. i believe that you will see internal pressure within the democrat party to say we've got to put this thing on time-out. we've got to look at how do we go back to the drawing board really. the question is the president willing to set aside his arrogance and really look at this health care law, this policy and say you're right. this thing is totally unworkable. >> you need some tips out there? well katherine so beale yus has
tweeted out some tips. here's how to survive healthcare.gov. this is not a joke. shop healthcare.gov during off peek hours, mornings, nights and weekend. >> the price will run out. >> comparison shop to get the best deals. she help elfly lists her twitter handle. why does this person still have a job? she looked right at a congressional panel six weeks ago and said this website will be ready and done by november 30th. >> the president offering her an umbrella saying the buck stops with me, i was giving the marging orders, they were given bad information. don't shoot the messenger. >> the president is making the opposite case as he campaigns around the country raising money from rich celebrities.
somebody, the person in charge should be held accountable, would be in any business and she is not being. >> she's on a pr campaign right now. one of my favorite things he says as well is there are 23 shopping days in december. no need to rush. you think she's saying that because they're planning on success also being 50,000 people being able to carry that when how many people have lost their insurance, for than five million and where are they going to be shipped off to? they're going to be in an online waiting room or as they're pushing an advanced cueing system. >> get in line. it's an advanced cueing system. >> we have some other news making head lines. breaking news overnight starting with a fox news alert out of alaska. more people have been killed after a small plane went down
last night. an infant boy is dead along with a pilot. they crashed in the western part of the state. ten people were on board at the time. no word on the condition of the others. another fox news alert, in scotland where at least one person has been killed after a police helicopter crashed into a busy pub. police expecting that number to rise because over 100 people were in the bar at the time. >> i just don't know why, just a huge plume of smoke. you could hear people screaming. >> well it is still unclear what caused that crash. one eyewitness saying the chopper dropped like a stone. three people were on board the helicopter, two officers and a civilian. no word on their condition. brad-new video overnight showing an american war veteran captured in north korea.

charles krauthammer is an authur. >> charles by the way is a great guy in person to get his take on the current administration, here's what he said. >> so you came to washington during the carter years, you watched the presidency carefully. how would you compare that presidency to the current presidency? >> well the carter presidency was the failure and a the people rendered a verdict on that. he did have certain achievements. but what people don't remember is that the invasion of after gan stan christmas 1979 was a turning point for carter. he kind of rejected the first three years of his own soft soviet policy. remember that statement he once made, inordinate fear of come in
addition. well he ininquired an inordinate amount of fare of come in addition. i worked for him during the 1980 campaign and i had no problems working for the democrat administration that had become pretty tough where it counted. but of course, comparing it to obama, with obama, i don't see any learning, i don't see any change, i don't see any difference. he tries the open hand, tries the reset with russia. he gets slapped in the face repeatedly, cutting off our a y alli allies, the czechs. the russians openly brazenly supporting assad in syria. he tried the same thing with iran which has led us to this day where we have the absolutely
awful come pitch las vegas of these negotiations. which obama i'm sure honestly sincerely thinks is a success. >> you're a doctor and you're the most widely read political come lum nis in the country. you're uniquely situated to think through where obama care winds up. what does it look like five years from now. >> it is either abolished or we have a wreckage of a health care system. the arrogance with which these experts marge into washington, write a 2,000-page bill of complexity, 20,000 pages of regulation affecting every aspect of medicine, which i know, i was in is it, is one of the densest most complex ecosystems of social interaction you can invent. you change one thing, the reimbursement schedules in medicare, you have ripple
effects that will last for years that you can't even imagine. and they are changing a thousand things. they're change everything at once and that's why you get an administration that tries to morally blackmail americans by saying, if you believe in helping the uninsured, you have to support obama care. well we have now discovered that over the last several months for every one person who's acquired insurance through obama care, 50 have lost their insurance. so where is the compassion argument? and the notion that you can legislate, regulate and sort of issue a set of rules, unending set of rules that will create a more rational, more cost effective health care system is quite insane. >> more of his analysis and thoughts, you can check out his book. it's available now on am don. an incredible story and incredible life. charles krauthammer >> quite insane.

behind the veil. >> i think it's odd that they've come out and say there's going to be a bill ya rate of 1,000 users. 1% is 500 users. and i don't fe that means 500 users will randomly fail or whether there's certain steps you put in that will guarantee you to fail and they only expect 1% of the people to do that. software repeats itself over and over again. i either work ors it doesn't work. i've never delivered something where i expected a failure rate. >> why isn't anyone getting fired over this, luke? >> well, i think we have to look at how i.t. gaf gof nans is handle. they don't understand how to
manage the projects and hold contractors responsible and accountable for the thing that they deliver. if it's a small contractor they would get rid of him easily. but for the bigger ones they have a lot of lawyers that would be able to deflect any blame against them and they continue top eligible to bid on new projects in the future. >> if this was in the private sector, would this hold water? >> these government contractors are specialists in getting government contracts, the skills that they have is not delivering technology and they tactics would never survive in the private sector. >> and you hear from many private sectors, silicon valley folks who say i don't want to stick my hand in that hornet's nest. i'll stay out here. thank you so much for joining us this morning. we appreciate your incite. >> thank you. this isn't a movie. this real life, this is the inventor of the bullet proof suit. this isn't james bond.
