hello, everyone. i'm dana perino along with andrea tantaros, julie, eric bolling, and greg gutfield. it's 5:00 in new york city, and this is "the five." at least julia is her real name. for the first time ever, a majority of americans do not think president obama is respected around the globe. a new gallup poll shows more than half of the country, 53%, believe world leaders do not respect president, that only 41% do, and meanwhile, today at the pentagon, proposed drastic cuts to the army, including shrinking it down to the smallest size since world war ii. >> the army must accelerate the
pace and increase the scale of its post-war product. today, there are about 520,000 active duty soldiers. we have decided to further reduce active duty army in-strength to a range of 440 to 450 soldiers. the changes to in-strength would result in a smaller army but insure the army remain well trained and clearly superior in arms and equipment. >> certainly good to see secretary hagel because we were about to put out a missing person's report on them. hadn't seen him in a while. let's start with the gallup poll. do you think president obama's numbers globally have really come down net or do you think the expectations for him were just so high that now it's just about right? >> it could be a mixture of both, dana. that's a very good question. but if the world is a stage, the lead actor essentially has left the auditorium for a six-year smoke. this is what he wanted. remember, he wanted a smaller america. and when your own president's
goal is a meeker world power, this is what you're going to get. essentially, epcot center is more imtimidating to our leaders than america. the fact is the world needs us even if obama doesn't. >> andrea, looking at numbers. president bush, when the poll was asked about president bush in his presidency, it was around 24%, abysmal. but the number even when it was at its highest in 2007 still hasn't gone up above 53%. do you think it matters to the world. do you think the white house cares about a poll like this? >> he told us that it matters. that's what he ran on. it matters what people think and i'm going to make other countries like us more. that was a primary goal. the point of appointing hagel from the get-go was have a republican make the cuts so it doesn't look like a democrat is using, although i use the term loosely, republican, with hagel's name in it. what i think he's doing,
actually is forcing a peace dividend. we should be on red alert. he's forcing a peace dividend. that was one thing after the cold war because the world seemingly was getting safer. the world is not getting safer. the world is getting more dangerous. and national defense is the number one priorities-u.s. government. the welfare state should be left to states and localities. president obama's constitutional p priorities are upside down. >> do you think the numbers on a world stage, people around the world taking this poll, do you think it has a lot to do with the economy? >> i do. that's what my talking point was. five years in and the economy is still struggling. they have a president that seemingly hasn't done anything besides obamacare and you see how that's turning out. from the outside looking in, i'm not surprised the numbers are sliding. ronald reagan was a president who wanted to be feared more than liked. president obama wanted to be
liked more than feared. unfortunately, we're not feared or liked in the world stage, and his wavering on syria, that didn't help, either. i agree with andrea. a lot of his failure is brought on by his own promise when he first took office. he said he didn't like the fact that americans felt we were exceptional. remember, he was anti-american exceptionalism, and he spent five or six years trying to even the playing field. it just shows the rest of the world, we don't have to worry about them, don't have to fear them, don't even have to like them anymore. >> julie, welcome. i see you didn't wear your suspenders. >> i didn't have any. i was trying to get some. >> are you surprised by the numbers? the reason i ask about being surprised is i think the world was hoping that america would get out of iraq, get out of afghanistan, and those things are under way. do you think it's the syria piece or maybe the economy and the lack of trade deals, or where do you think the angst is coming from? >> these are americans asking if
other world leaders like the president. it's not saying whether americans will believe. >> which is worse. >> it's not. which world leaders are we talking about, vladimir putin? assad? >> yes, yes. >> do you care? >> americans perceive this president isn't respected by world leaders, isn't that problematic? >> was it problematic for bush? >> we're talking about obama. >> i think to some extent i'm going to agree with you. the expectations for barack obama when he took office were so unrealistic both in this country and abroad, people thought he was going to be the second coming and it was never going to happen. >> only certain people. the media. >> you know, i don't disagree with you. the media did, and i remember turning to another democratic friend of mine and saying this guy is going to have a really big fall because expectations are so huge. now you're going into, look what's going on in ukraine. what's going on in venezuela, around the world and in syria.
>> the venezuela. >> and the question is, what exactly is barack obama supposed to do? is he supposed to now give overt help to the ukrainians in which case the russians will say why are you playing in our backyard, or is better to have a grassroots revolution? the same thing goes on in venezuela. it's in our sphere of influence. is he supposed to go down there and say this is what america wants? which will backfire tremendously. there's soft power that could be used rather than power where the united states dictates and people get upset. >> isn't that the word, power? you have to have power in order to affect change. i think we're not perceived as having the power we once did. i think president obama has a number of upcoming trips planned overseas for the rest of his tenure. what's he going to say? i'm wondering what is he going to say. is he going to say i downsized the military ? is that why he's doing that now, to say, see, we're not as strong
as we were before. sorry for being so strong. >> i want to talk about the military. the president's budget comes out in about a week or so. they're laying the groundwork for what will be a lot of spending increases elsewhere, but to say because of sequester and all these things, we have to cut back on the military. i thought general jack keane said it well, the military is bearing disproportionate cuts because the president is unwilling to basically deal with other problems, mostly from entitlements. >> we talked about this for years. this is the inevitable process when you go down the path of the ineffecttual state. europe is a boutique of countries because of government programs funded in part by cutting their military. this is exactly what you must do. as our government expands, as we have seen with obamacare, how do you pay for that? you shrink the military. what you've got is this incredibly dependent society, and they can't defend
themselves. that is not any way to preserve freedom. you need small government, big army. not big government, tiny army. this is the decline of the west that we have thought would come, and this is how it's going to be. it's over. i'm moving to texas. >> eric, part of the administration's spin has been that we've been in -- we're in a time of austerity. that the past few years have been austere, somehow. charles krauthammer, i think, called that an assault on english language, but where do they get off calling it an era of austerity? >> we were trying to figure it out. kind of like when president obama says he's cut the deficit. he's cut his own deficit. first, he raised it very high and then he cut it. the only thing i can think of, and correct me if i'm wrong, they're talking about sequester. austerity kind of says everyone participates in the cuts. if that's it, the sequester would fill the bill, but remember, sequester was a white
house idea first. then they didn't like how it was turning out, so the white house turned and said, you know, those darn republicans made us do sequester. and then it became bad. it was good, then it became bad. now apparently they're going to try to spin it back the other way a second time, saying those sequester cuts, that's austerity. see what we're doing for you? it's amazing the verbal gymnastics they're playing with. >> let me get julie's take on it politically. maybe i'm wrong. i think it is strange to ask members of congress and senators to vote on a bill to cut the military in an election year where they're already underwater with public opinion and look to be on the verge of maybe, at least losing a few senate seats if thought losing the majority. what's the political rationale? >> i agree with you. you're not just cutting the military. you're cutting military pay, military benefits, which i wouldn't do because of the reasons you mentioned, and in a lot of these states, louisiana,
alaska, you have a lot of military people. alaska, people who have contested seats, from a political standpoint, you're right. i'm going to correct you because you're wrong because this president has fewer federal employees working today than the previous president did. thank you for pointing that out. >> what did i say about that? >> where did he shrink the government? >> he said he cut his own deficit. >> he did. >> no, no, he brought a $450 billion last year bush term deficit up to $1.1 trillion. now he's got it down to $700 billion or something. >> don't you think a lot of -- >> this is his own increase. >> you don't think a lot of these were incurred under bush? >> no. >> no? i think you could put some on bush but go back over time and the point jack was making is a willingness of washington to deal with the tough issues. one being that the president's reached out to republicans and said, one of the ways we can deal with the budget is to add a very technical thing called chain cpi to the budget which
would save us money on entitlements and they had to withdraw that on friday because the democrats weren't willing to do it. now, again -- you disagree? >> yes, he proposed chained cpi last year as part of a grand bargain. republicans said no way. you had members of congress campaigning against chain cpi, they did. now you have obama saying i'm not going to fall for this again. and the republicans are screaming about chain cpi. >> before we put the viewers to sleep by debating chain cpi, which is so -- >> you can explain it well. you understand it. >> it's something we used to do in a club before the police came. >> very different. and you didn't debate it. everyone was in agreement it was fun. isn't the larger story that we're talking about chain cpi? that is taking one bucket off the titanic and it's somehow going to work? >> that's true. >> if i were a democrat right now, i would be phoning up the white house screaming at them for doing these military cuts. they already have to defend
obamacare. now they have to defend cutting the military. and you and i were talking in the green room earlier. you go, i can't figure out this white house. you know what, dana. i don't think they have any idea what they're doing. they make it up as they go along. they have been making it up as they go along with obamacare, and the same thing, they're hoping people will take the buzz feed quizzes. and they're not paying any attention to what's happening in d.c. that's what they're banking on. >> i took the quiz about which state you should live in? >> you did not. what did you get? >> i got virginia. >> i got wyoming. >> my point. >> it proves it exactly. >> you take the quiz? >> no, i didn't. i don't like quizzes. >> do we have time for our third topic? okay, so we have susan rice also on the sunday shows. she had a famous run on the sunday shows before. five sunday shows in which the ben gaughazi talking points wer revealed. she explained that on meet the press yesterday. >> david, no, because what i said to you that morning and
what i did every day since was to share the best information that we had at the time. the information i provided, which i explained to you, was what we had at the moment. >> i'm almost speechless because it's patently obviously, first of all, that susan rice had no reason to be on the program. she had no involvement in it. second of all, she read talking points that we're now beginning to believe came from the white house, which were absolutely false. >> eric, were you surprised she would have said that? why not just say the talking points were not accurate, and move on? do you think it's too dangerous. >> here's what happened. remember hillary clinton was supposed to show up. she said she couldn't or didn't want to for whatever reason. >> obviously the reason. >> right, so susan rice up, delivers the talking points that she was told to deliver. and then says now she says, you know, months later, a year and a half later, it was the best information we had. no, it wasn't. the was the best lies you had.
the problem is not any of that. it's that she said she has no regrets. you have no regrets that you delivered the wrong information to the american public on five different shows that day? >> even president obama has said, julie, i don't know if he used the word regret, but they wished they had not done what they did or they had better information. >> i think you're missing the larger picture, which she almost made john mccain speechless. >> kidding? >> that's true, that's not easy to do. >> and commendable, i might add. >> the problem here is, i have this theory. it's called poop island. once you're there, you can't get off. once people lose faith in you, no matter what you say, it doesn't ring true. that's the problem with this administration. when you look at susan rice, you go, it's over. i can't take her seriously. >> you don't want to go to that island. >> no, once you're on poop island, you can't get off. >> where is that located? >> right off the shore of -- >> be careful. >> all right, tonight. don't miss hannity at 10:00 p.m.
eastern. sean is going to find out what dick cheney thinks about the pentagon's plans to shrink down the size of the army. an exclusive interview. and coming up, if you have had enough of alec baldwin, you are in luck. he said he's leaving public life. >> plus, nancy kerrigan and tonya harding revisit the skating scandal 20 years later. these stories and more when "the five" returns.
welcome back to the fastest seven minutes in tv. three cool stories. seven cursory minutes. one composed host. first up, good riddance. hot head and cry baby actor alec baldwin said he's through with you, with me, with new york. here's a refresher of his antics just after he was caught on a hot mike delivering a gay slur. >> you almost hit my wife in the face with a microphone. >> i didn't. >> you want to apologize. i asked you a question. do you want to apologize. i asked you a question. get the [ bleep ] out of here. >> and now the big man who picks on photographers and women says he's done with the medyeah and done with the public and new york city. so speaking for the media and new york and a friend of at least two of your brothers,
don't let the door hit you on the way out. greg, what does he mean he's done with public life? what does that mean? >> i don't know. i'm sad. i read the entire article. he said basically everything is bad but him, and he says bad things about people i love. i like alec baldwin for a couple of reasons. one, he's incredibly talented. two, his mistakes are impulsive, but they're not malicious. these are emotional reactions to stress. that doesn't make him a bad person, and his anger is not about us. it's about feeling betrayed by the left. the pain and suffering he's getting is not from conservatives. it's from the left eating their own. it's the pc police that went after him for perceived slurs. i don't believe those are slurs. those are what's called fighting words. when you get mad, you say things. i don't believe he's a homophobe. and he is just -- went through what a lot of conservatives have gone through, and i actually salute him and i wish him well. >> okay, andrea, do you cut him
the same amount of slack? by the way, he took shots at msnbc, shots at a lot of people you would think would be at least friendly. >> yeah, he said rachel maddow was a phony. and a geek. and i completely disagree. rachel maddow has come out of the closet instead of alec baldwin, who i believe lets his homophobic ways sneak out in the street when he does get angry. he has no self control, and he says he's leaving so his newest baby can have a normal and deese want life. well, his child can't have a normal and decent life because she doesn't have a normal or decent father. by the way, isn't this the second time he told us he was going to leave? so he's threatening to leave america again? >> dana perino, you predicted he may drop out of the public. >> i think i did, because i think he would say, you know what, i don't mean any of this. to hell with all of you. i just said that, hell. >> oh, my gosh, dana. >> i'm getting -- are you allowed to say that?
anyway, i said he would say, i don't need all this, and i don't know where he's going to go, but i think in about 18 months, he will come back to new york. and then he's going to get like a special tax credit to have a special show, and it will be live and we'll have a resurgence of alec baldwin. >> very quickly, says he longs for l.a. now, the gated community, the gated homes. >> he's not going anywhere. remember when he got off twitter for like 24 hours. and then he got off for 24 hours again. he was mad at u.s. airlines or american airlines. he's going to live downtown. i think he thrives on this. >> i think alec baldwin who is incredibly talented and an amazing actor, he thrives on this. >> i have to move on. next up, last night, nbc aired a documentary highlighted 20 years since the tonya harding/nancy kerrigan fiasco. jeffrey giluly took a hammer to nancy's knee. the result, a media frenzy, a
silver medal for nancy, and a sad tonya harding. >> i have apologized so many times that, you know, it's not worth -- i'm sorry, she's not worth my time anymore. this 20 years thing, every four years, every two years, every whatever. it's like, i'm done. nobody wants to hear this crap anymore. and you know what? i don't give a damn. >> i think at this point, she must feel like she's on the defense all the time. that's hard for anybody to have to deal with. and so, you know, that i can't blame her. that's -- i'm sure she want to stop talking about this, too, and move on with her life. which, who can blame her? >> you point out, nancy kerrigan less angry than tonya harding. thoughts? >> the think about tonya harding being asked about it every two or four years, she doesn't have to talk about it at all. she could have turned down the interview. in some ways it's the best thing that happened to her so she can continue to have some sort of
public presence. i thought nancy kerrigan seems gracious and kind of always has, even at the time, she didn't lash out. she has like amazing amount of poise and class. >> greg, kerrigan still makes money skating professionally. >> yes. >> think that has a little to do with it? >> maybe, the problem is anniversaries. that sucks because every time there's an olympics, they have to talk about it because the olympics are so boring. the big question is where is the baton? is that in some kind of like ice skating hall of fame. where is that lillehammer. i want to know where that is. that's got to be worth something. nobody knows what happened to it. is it in like an evident room. >> what are you talking about? >> the baton. >> the weapon. >> oh, the hammer. lillehammer is a place. a joke, a joke. >> i called it a lillehammer. it was a baton he used. >> i got you. quickly on kerrigan and tonya harding. >> i think i have been hanging out with greg a little too long
because this is going to be a very gutfelt-esq comment, but this is where the olympics were fun, where there was drama involved. i think tonya harding is just white trash. she's white trash. and she came out and she said later in that interview, she goes, i have already proved my innocence. did i miss a meeting? when did that happen? she's never been innocent in her life. i agree with dana. kerrigan is gracious. >> and here's the beauty of tonya harding. if it weren't for this incident she is sick of talking about, she wouldn't have made money mud wrestling. tonya harding, thank you jeff, because she's milked it for ton. >> would you want her as your landscaper? >> took a 2 x 4 to you. >> the daytona 500 ran yesterday, but not before a 6:22 rain delay when a checkered flag finally waved, it looked like this. >> that 88 is pulling away.
>> less than a mile to go. >> we got a wreck. >> third generation star dale earnhardt, jr. brings them to the flag. checkered flag waving. it's over. it's earnhardt. >> and dale earnhardt, jr. took the win at 11:25 p.m. most of the race was run in primetime. i was conflicted. i watched "the walking dead" and then came back and watched the end. >> the only thing i know about nascar is that awesome will ferrell movie, so i'm going tosay it looked almost as awesome. shake and bake. >> what were you watching last night, the 500? >> no, i was watching "dallas buyer's club" on netflix. i have never been to a race. i hear it's pretty incredible in person. >> out of control. i have been to daytona 500 a couple times. out of control. last night, what were you doing? >> i don't call this the daytona. i call this the death-tona. when i see the effects this race has on global warming overall, i
think -- i would like to see these cars be electric, but they get tangled up in the cords and it wouldn't work. but this is devil's work, people. >> you think you plug it in? >> there would be crashes and everybody would be flipping over. it would lee like a vacuum cleaner. >> last thoughts on the daytona 500? >> i would like to go, too. the crowd has a lot of fun. good, clean, family fun. >> by the way, andrea, where did you get your pen? did you steal that one, too? >> busted. >> is that from the bank? >> from the smith restaurant around the corner from dana perino's house. >> always taking pens. >> what do the harvard crimson and the constitution have in common? apparently, nothing. harvard writers suggesting we need to kill free speech to save liberalism. wow. fascists who want to silenc
assent. venezuela, russia, syria, harvard. true, sandra korn, the harvard crimson columnist writes professors who hold views counter to hers, of course, should be silenced. this leftist calls her intolerance academic justice and wonders why she must entertain views she doesn't like, missing the whole point of freedom of speech. everyone agrees there would be no need for such freedom, i suppose. this is a game the hard left likes playing. just add justice. you want to rob the rich, call it economic justice. if you want to trash a bank, that's social justice. shutting down a mcdonald's, nutritional justice, and firing me could be homely justice, since my beauty often offends leftist, but she offers another
lie, they were for free speech to begin to. but it only applies to their own lack of confidence and free believes. her article, as bad as it was, wasn't banned, which undermines her point. that's good. the best way to eliminate toxic notions is to let people hear them. the quickest way to ruin a racist is to let them talk. bad ideas always have a way of outing themselves, just like this harvard column. so dana, the campus is usually a beacon of intellectual freedom, yet they keep creating all around the country these robots that spout the same intolerance. why is that? >> i actually think we could do the greatest hits of this segment because there seems to be examples that come from a lot of well renowned universities. harvard being one of them. she can say whatever she wants. one thing that drives me nuts is how journalists will often turn to students to quote people, how they feel about something or
their reaction when it doesn't matter what they think. watch, do yourself a little experiment. for the next two weeks, there, they got the student. it really doesn't matter. >> that's a good point, eric. should we clohalk this up to youthful indiscretion? >> at harvard? >> yes. >> pretty much. the good news is she's just a youth at harvard who espouses a lot of the similar views, if it were any other school. okay, so publish it. knock yourself out. it's so strange that the premise is free speech runs the risk of ruining liberalism. it's the opposite. liberalism runs the risk of ruining free speech, liberty, second amendment, fourth amendment. checks and balances. look what's going on with the obama administration. i hate to bring it back here, he would be punching me, bob, but president obama is using the executive pen for stuff that normally presidents wouldn't be using it for. a lot more heavy stuff that
presidents have used it for. and that's risking freedom and liberty. he's liberal. >> and a lot fewer times than other president. >> for other things. >> as an avowed leftist, your beauty does not offend me. i love to behold it, just so you know. i might have a secret life-sized poster of you somewhere in my apartment, i won't say more. >> i need to hear more. >> i'm tell you later. >> these are your people. >> they are my people. when we have our secret leftist cuball, i'll bring it up as an issue and we'll take a vote, and we'll decide what we're going to do about it and your horrible attitude toward my leftist colleagues. she's nuts. i hate to agree with you, but i do. there's no excuse in the world why you can't have other people's opinions. when you're in college, you come up with crazy ideas and then you grow up and go on. >> then you run for congress. >> right.
>> she can't move on, andrea, when your major is joint history of science and studies of women gender and sexuality concentrator. this is why china is winning. nobody in china majors in this. they major in jobs, getting a job. >> yes. and population control. they're not fans of too many women, we know that. she's right. i can't believe she actually admitted this, though. >> yeah. >> she's absolutely right. she's admitting what we have all known for a long time. the left has been at odds with free speech for so long. the truth is a threat to liberalism. reality is sathreat to liberalism. >> oh, god. >> it's true. you have to heave a little more. bob heaves. >> i'm about to start heaving. >> that's why when liberals get into power, they have to pulley it, sensor it, take it away, put monitors in news rooms. the president admitted in his interview that if fox news just wouldn't cover these stories, they would just go away.
>> yeah. >> that's the issue there. we're covering the stories because of free speech. we can cover them. they don't like it. >> did you read that major one more time? >> joint history of science and studies of women gender and sexuality concentrator. >> isn't that a new obama cabinet? >> if it is, she's got a job. she's smarter than all of us. we have to go. they're yelling at me in a terse matter. frankly, i don't appreciate it. >> next up, the world's most wanted drug lord is in custody in mexico. but should he be brought to the united states to face justice incoming up.
th his name is joaquin guzman, but he's better known as el chapo. he's been on the run for 13 years since he escaped prison in 2001. he faced multiple drug trafficking indictments in the united states, and mike mccaul is arguing for him to be extradited here to face justice. >> this is the most wanted drug lord in the world, the godfather of the drug cartels, caused tremendous damage to the united states, killed thousands of people. he ought to be brought to the united states, put in a super max prison where he can't escape and face the ultimate criminal penalty in the united states. you have corruption in mexico. he's already escaped once. he's the most powerful man in mexico. if not the world. and i think the flight risk and security risk is tremendous in mexico. >> so what should happen to him? greg, i think it's pretty clear it's in the u.s. interest to try him in the united states. he was imprisoned before and he escaped. and the drug cartels basically run the prisons down in mexico.
so it would be too dangerous to let him, i guess, have his time in the justice system there again. >> can i use this moment to talk about drugs? >> yes. >> because i don't follow the legal stuff. i know no matter what happens to him, there's going to be a massive violence to replace him, another one to fill his spot. the logic of prohibition creates this kind of criminality. the idea you can stop me from alleviating the curse of consciousness is absurd. i should not be punished for other people's weakness. we're the only animals who actively seek out remedies and we're capable of it. that's what we do. stop fighting it. accept it. legalize this, and you eliminate most criminality. >> do you agree with bob marley, julie? because i saw you nodding your head. and i would actually have to agree with greg in a couple ways, but in one way, i do think that the country has sort of given up on the drug war. >> we have lost the drug war and greg is 100% right.
what are we doing killing people over drugs? prosecuting, spending millions if not billions of dollars going after people. as greg said, they're going to do it anyway. >> i'm going to do it. >> god bless. that's wonderful. we can talk about that later, you know, several issues we need to discuss. with this, you know, you're absolutely right. by the way, i think those guy's nickname is awesome, shorty. i want to know what your nickname would be. what would your kingpin nickname me? >> the chuckler. >> the chuckler, of course. >> would dana be el chapa. >> eric, isn't it in mexico's interest to have him tried in the united states? it's a lot harder to run drug cartels from illinois? >> it's -- i'm onboard. they're having a hard enough time trying to round him up. we're running out of time, but there's subtext to lend more credence to the argument. colorado expecting next year to
bring in another $134 million in tax revenue from legalizing marijuana. just legalizing marijuana alone. if that doesn't give you enough incentive to say stop fighting this, stop spending $150 million in colorado and start taking in $150 million, do it in every state. you'll help out a lot of states. >> it gives me heart burn. >> the cartels have already infiltrated every city. what do you think should happen? >> of course, it's going to be a market for people, i don't know. i understand, i have learned a lot from you guys about gateway drugs and things, but i can't hup but thinking the unintended consequence of all these things, especially tying an issue like this to the money, $154 million and then you get addicted to that money, too. and then we're basically living off other people's addictions to their drugs. i don't know exactly what should happen. however, this guy is also wanted for murder. it's not just that he was passing out drugs and getting money for it. he actually is wanted for murder.
>> in prohibition, they killed people, too. >> we don't have prohibition of alcohol anymore. >> that's what i'm saying, it went away then. >> escobar, we didn't extradite him. he was tried in colombia. he set up a fancy prison for himself. anyone who tries tastand in the way and put these guys to justice, they end up getting shot, literally, at the funerals in the streets. >> it's interesting the way the left and right seems to agree on a lot of things. except me, where i'll sit over here and take roll aids. >> because you're high. don't get high before the show. >> still ahead, hollywood wants everyone to pay their fair share, except for hollywood. some real-life drama surrounding the political drama on "house of cards. wae "we'll tell you about that next.

decision. this is the part where you leave. >> the show received about $25 million in tax benefits in the first two seasons and apparently that's not enough. now the production company is threatening to leave the states if their tax credits aren't increases. how fast should maryland throw the show under the train? this is ridiculous. >> this comes to a joke i wrote this morning. when does a liberal think like a businessman, when it's his business. when it's not, it's back to the punitive theft of other people's money. they allobama, tactsing and taking your money. give them the credit. >> they expect special treatment. >> exactly. >> they want special treatment. a lot of the states are giving it. but it's hard to say whether -- if it was actually worth it for maryland. a lot of the states, you may get
temporary jobs, but you don't get permanent jobs. >> what do you think? >> i think maryland has realized what new york is realizing and some of the other states, that the way to incentivize businesses to come to your stase is to drop their taxes. why can't the rest of the country do the same thing? why can't you extrapolate that for all businesses, not just the film industry? because it's cool and hip and trendy. everyone should have lower tax rates and then, guess what? we would be bringing jobs and companies overseas here to do business. >> so you're against tax credits. >> i'm all for more tax credits. not just for the film industry, but every other business. >> i don't even know what that means, but go ahead. everybody gets them. >> i wouldn't expect you to know what that means being a liberal. >> kevin spacey, the big hollywood liberal thinks his taxes are too high and they should give him more money. if governor o'malley is smart, he's not going to do that, but he would lower the taxes for everybody in the state of maryland, and if kevin spacey doesn't like it, pound sand.
go somewhere else. >> last year, o'malley raised taxes twice on the income earners in maryland. >> it's the connected and nonconnected. >> i don't know how kevin spacey and frank underwood became de blasio and barack obama, but okay. >> it's clear to me. >> we're out of time. "one more thing" is coming up next. thing."
i'm going to kick it off talking about the end of an era. john dingell, congressman from michigan, from detroit, is announcing he's going to retire at the end of this year. he's 87 years old. he's been there since 1955. when i was there on capitol hill, he was so nice to all of us staffers. he was a giant of the hill. and a lot of people think maybe it's time for him to go. he will be the longest serving
member of congress in june. and he'll surpass all of the other record holders and we wish him well. i wish him well. i don't know. i'm going to go to andrea next. i don't know if anyone is going to comment. >> i'm wishing him well, too. >> i agree with you. he's very well liked by republicans. >> a very nice guy. >> so remember this photo from the new york post when twerker in chief robert dick had his hand -- whoopee, up some girl's dress and got busted and they talked to his wife and she said, oh, we have a strong marriage and everything is okay. now he's twerking his way to divorce court. this afternoon, "people" magazine reported exclusively that paula patton and robin thicke are headed for divorce. so it's very sad as they have a little boy. but can't say i didn't see it coming. >> all right, greg, you're next. >> it's time for "no one cares." last night, miley cyrus and katy perry were at a concert at
staples center, i believe, in los angeles. and onstage, you know what they did? they kissed passionately, but you didn't hear about it because no one cares. and that's good. >> that is good. >> it has become the oldest trick in the book, right? when you want attention, two girls just kiss. >> don't get any ideas. our ratings are fine. >> we're all good. >> by the way, you're all good. >> you can apply greg's almost to my "one more thing." the lamest "one more thing" or kind of funny. here's rob ford, toronto mayor. watch. >> okay. >> he's the greatest. >> what was he doing? >> he ran into a fire hydrant. >> that might be the lamest "one more thing." >> that has happened. >> it looks like it hurt. >> it hits me in my pecs.
>> obviously. i got it in the chin. julie, you're next. >> we're sticking to a drug theme today because i want to talk about the savvy, savvy girl scout who is selling cookies outside the pot clinic in colorado. i think this girl is genius. harvard business school should hire her to teach a class today, not wait until she's a harvard graduate, and he needs to show everybody how the free market works. she saw an opportunity and took it. i love it. >> they moved her away. >> they need to let her stay. >> that's a draw. you see the girl scout cookies, you tend to go to them. set your dvrs so >> it is tuesday february 25th. cuts that put americans lives at risk. chuck hagel announces he is
slashing americ slashing. >> a common disorder in children. >> a bus driver brutally attacked shot twice in the chest. a message from god that said his life. "fox & friends first" starts right now. ♪>> good morning to you as you wake up with us. you are looking at mid town monday hat tan. you are watching "fox & friends first". i am heather nauert in .
>> u.s. security could be jeopardized. >> steve sent any is liis here s how american lives are at risk. >> the new trimmed down military will face both sides of the aisle on capitol hill you can be sure of that. chuck hagel announcing the cuts and acknowledging a smaller force means a greater risk. it means the army will have a smaller capacity. they would be able to fight one major ground operation but not two as we have been able to do in the past as we were able to do in iraq and afghanistan simultaneously. it will cut down our capability and increase our risk. all 11 aircraft carriers will be maintained. some members of congress aren't
