gutfeld. she could charm a mouse off a cat tree, kimberly guilfoyle. and bob beckel. he traded his bat swing for the right wing, eric bolling. she is america's bunny slipper. dana perino. 5:00 in new york city. 4:00 a.m. in dana lurid back pack. this is "the five." the show is packed tighter than a cook's hair net. let's do this, america. ♪ ♪ in ohio yesterday, the president rejected class warfare. it bet he said we have two competing visions of the future and the choice could not be clearer. >> right now we have two competing visions of our future. the choice could not be clearer. let me tell you, the folks on the other side, i'm sure they are patriots, i'm sure there is fear in terms of what they say, but their theory, i believe is wrong. somebody gave me an education. i wasn't born with a silver
2:01 am
spoon in my mouth. michelle wasn't. but somebody gave us a chance. it's like these folks up here are looking for a chance. >> greg: i guess i was wrong. the president whines he had no silver spoon. if that's not class warfare, what is it? a war on spoons? he's got to stop this war on utensils, america. maybe he didn't have a silver spoon, but he had a silver tongue. he went from community organizer to president with just a few steps in between. something was silver. or straw. perhaps like his argument. you know i bet he knows a better way to make our economy stronger. it comes down to two choices, one evil and one good. >> what is the better way to make our economy stronger? get more tax breaks to ever millionaire and billionaire in the country or make investments in education and research and healthcare and job training? >> greg: that is like choosing between a hug from beckel or one from dana. thans is not a redistribution
2:02 am
argument. this is not taking from the rich people to give to poor people. >> this is not a redistribution argument. not taking rich people to give to por people. this is us together making invest in the the country so everybody has a fair shot. greg fair shot? i guess the fair share failed so it's fair shot. most economists point out there is more movement from class to class here than anywhere else, ever. people come here not for class warfare but one day their kids can be born with a silver spoon or any spoon for that matter in their mouths. unlike indonesia, our spoons won't have dog in it. >> kimberly: really? >> greg: what? hey, bob -- >> kimberly: you're not well behaved. >> greg: it's thursday. in thursday move. thursday is like my friday. so the polls, cbs, "new york times" poll finds obama and romney in a dead heat. i want to ask you, if you were involved in obama's campaign,
2:03 am
what kind of advice would you give to president obama, would you tell him to hold tight in things might get better. or new game plan. >> bob: i think -- he was in ohio yesterday. ohio is going to be as it usually is, critical to the outcome of the presidential race. here is the thing i find most interesting about all the polls. number of undecided voters are very small. persuadable voters. polarization on both sides is really, i mean they are both sitting around 46% if you ample it all out. normally in a presidential race, it's 40/40. that is the base. 20% persuadable vote. i think that that, what if i were obama i'd focus on that. here is the problem with romney and obama. they do not attract blue collar white, noncollege men. neither one of them. and that is a problem. whoever gets there first will win this election. >> greg: you know who does attract -- >> bob: are you bored already? >> eric: just a little. >> greg: that's what i thought. blue
2:04 am
>> blue collar, white, non- -- be honest. >> bob: barrels of oil. >> eric: producer, fans politicos -- i won't lump you in to this. producer of politico loves poll. every day a new poll comes out and says next one, romney ahead, obama is ahead. then we go see the big move in the the poll. rely? >> dana: i think this is significant because it's the first time you see since the primary basically been over that you have the "new york times" and cbs poll saying it didn't affect romney as bad as a lot of people thought it might have. persuadable voters, so say you take ten of them in a room. they listen to president obama say i wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth. it guarantee you three of them off the table. or they stay home. >> bob: you're right about this. at least when they are polling, the conservative base of the party came to romney. he inherited that. the same way that obama has. that's why my new norm of both parties is 45%.
2:05 am
of the electorate. i know it bores you. stay awake, will you? >> kimberly: it will be a challenge for both of the men to put together winning strategies in key states like ohio. right now it's too soon to tell in terms of how the numbers are going to settle. but i think eric from the beginning you said it will be anybody but obama, even generic republican beat obama. when you look at this long-term, quick snapshot, i think it's significant because it's showing movement. we'll see how -- >> bob: you won't see what you saw in the primary. this will be settled where it is now. it will be 44 to 48%, around that range. won't be big movement. >> kimberly: that's within the margin of error statistically. >> eric: can i jump in here? no, no, i want to talk about something greg said in that monologue. obama, can we talk about this? he wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth? can we talk about how he got to be president of the united states? tough childhood, i get it. his mother left him to be
2:06 am
raised by his grandmother in hawaii where he earned a "c" average throughout high school. sometimes got through ok dental college with a c -- occidental college with "c" average. then found himself at harvard where he got prestigious position of editor of the harvard law review. then paid by the taxpayers through various forms of public service. senator and now president. so, financial silver spoon. he has a form. >> bob: don't you think being president of harvard law review requires some substance in the silver spoon comes, do you remember when ann richard talked about herbert walker bush saying he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. clearly referring to romney. >> dana: she said poor george bush, he was born with a silver foot in his mouth. that's why it was so funny and hi learous and one of the best i can still quote. the famous quote. president obama will never be
2:07 am
in -- >> bob: he was referring to romney when he said that. >> dana: of course. that's the thing. he says he is -- i'm not doing class warfare and then he says something like that, of course he is talking about mitt romney. >> greg: if it's not working -- the class warfare rhetoric is not working, not helping him with men. if you look among women, married women move away from him. you still get single women. but married women are moving away. it's not working. speech writers, don't they have to come up with something new? >> kimberly: they recycle the same stuff. why what should they do with that? >> bob: if you are on an economy at best weak, what are you going to do? i think that what the polling indicates and what the focus group indicate is class warfare thing will bring over the white collar -- excuse me, blue collar men who don't like romney. romney not favorability among the people. >> greg: wrong for the country. it's wrong.
2:08 am
>> dana: romney's lead among men is higher than percentage wise than obama is among women across the board. >> bob: are you sure? >> dana: yeah. >> greg: obama is adding $5 trillion to the debt. isn't that class warfare? >> dana: you ask what could he do in they could do something that -- he was in a perfect position to play against types. re-deuce taxes on corporation. why doesn't he nache? you know what congress? i want it done by the end of june on my desk. >> eric: i have a better idea. i have a better idea. how about he takes his own advice. isn't he the one that put together the simpson bowles commission? didn't he say guys, come up with ideas to tackle debt and make sure it doesn't spiral out of control? didn't they come up with five ideas, reforming medicare, medicaid, entitlement, a little bit of tax reform and spending reform. and all of a sudden, obama says no, i'm not against simpson bowles. no way. no way. >> bob: it would raids taxes.
2:09 am
>> eric: but my point is he commissions a group, they come up with recommendations. nah, doesn't sound. >> dana: it gets worse. two days ago the head of the senate budget committee kent conrad, the senate hasn't had a budget in well over three years. >> kimberly: they don't care. >> dana: kent conrad, who is retiring said i'm going to have a markup on the simpson-bowles plan. markup means they have to vote on it. guess what? harry reid calls up and says no you don't. democrats won't have to take a vote on that. harry reid didn't come up with that on his own. that came from the white house. >> bob: the simpson bowles committee not created by obama. it was act of congress. the idea was you have a budget that had to be voted on. eight republicans backed off of it. >> eric: president obama, bob, you're wrong. >> dana: congress created it after he requested it. >> bob: he requested it. congress passed it. what it said is you were going to have no amendments up and down. remember that? the republicans at the very end backed off of that. >> greg: on that note -- >> bob: he didn't make it mandatory. >> greg: we're going to take a break.
2:10 am
>> dana: are you still here? >> greg: yeah. get a snack. coming up, the president halted the keystone pipeline in january but now he has a new plan. what will obama do now? probably something. also don't forget to e-mail us at mali thefive@foxnews.com. write "i love greg" in the subject header and win a free lunch with dana. ♪ ♪

2:15 am
paltry compared to the money spent by the facility management department. >> when you say paltry, that is a general term. >> i have not looked at the number. my understanding is it's in the $60 million a year range. >> eric: so to the d.o.e., $60 million of your money is paltry sum. t wh weid not hr was more stunning when asked about the rest of the travel expenditures by the department, mr. freeman said several hundred milli was "gross understatement." so, the d.o.e., the g.s.a., spending our money, bob, seems like it's a big joke. >> greg: they spent $60 million on poultry? >> kimberly: paltry. >> bob: it's not fair to call someone a clown because he's testifying. he's a civil servant, trying to do his best to answer the questions. it's amazing to me that you pick out the d.o.e. contract when the defense spends $5 billion on the ospry and it doesn't work.

it doesn't work. it doesn't work. it doesn't fly. it flies up and then it goes. >> eric: i'm telling -- >> bob: the biggest waste of the money is the defense department. we never talk about it. >> greg: i love that bob is admonishing you for calling him a clown. that might be the best thing i've ever seen. >> dana: and the suggest. >> kimberly: that, too. very subtle. >> bob: one shot after another folks, after another. >> greg: i love you. >> bob: sometimes i can't make it out of here. i'm just saying that i think you -- by the way, the d.o.e. investigations, there are thousands and thousands of grants out there. they are investigating 300 of them. >> eric: let's talk about what this is. this is a congressional hearing -- >> bob: tell us what this is. >> eric: stay on the subject, shall we? this is congress and how they spend the money. $60 million of travel within the department itself with the contractors. several hundred million
2:17 am
dollars is a gross understatement? >> dana: that is the scale, right? that is what we're talking about and why the second look at the green energy programs, because they can't get to scale there. might be a reason to fund basic science and basic research. the specific companies getting money like fisker or solyndra that has been a terrible experiment that is lead weight around the obama administration ankle. >> kimberly: is it excusable? >> dana: it's also congressional. we throw a lot of criticism the way of the president. but regardless of who is in office, congress has a responsibility to look at this. that's what joe barton was doing. >> bob: we don't talk about any of these, any of the energy things that have worked. of course, we don't do that, it's not good for the show, because you won't be able to deal with it. >> eric: we can, bob. >> bob: sure we can. >> eric: we can find one. i would love to talk about a green energy project that worked. find one and we'll all over

"oh, fine, bob." [ laughter ] "fine, good. let's move on." >> kimberly: that is a good impersonation, actually. >> eric: isn't that testimony we just saw with the gentleman from the d.o.e. nonchalantly saying $50 million, that is no big deal? >> kimberly: monopoly money. >> dana: the part, the apt of money that they are dealing with, it's like if you saw the great speech this weekend, if i find $20 in my pocket, that's a lot for me. but for the equivalent, bill
2:20 am
gates for the money he earns he'd have to pull $12 million out of his pocket. $50 million to the department of energy given how much money they have is a little bit like a rounding error. it's still a lot of money. >> greg: the interesting thing is -- sorry, did i interrupt? >> dana: no. >> greg: it never ends. it's always $500 million. it's always like $500 million for fisker and solyndra. they should come up with one $500 million currency. and call it like the chu. >> bob: the extra engine that nobody really wanted on the raptor cost the american people? it wasn't $500 million. >> eric: who manufacturered that? >> bob: ohio, boehner -- >> dana: so after it was an american manufacturer they weren't shipping the jobs overseas? find something other than a car that no one is going to buy? >> eric: we need to go. >> bob: good. why don't you get out of here.

>> kimberly: i know. so this seems to get more expensive by the minute. the information coming out, quite a few scandals. some people calling for elimination altogether of the agency given the extensive amount of corruption. >> dana: the purpose of the agency needs to exist in some way. gsa is the place that when you lease your building, they're like the landlord. that's what they are supposed to do. you can imagine the government has a lot of these. in 2008, president obama on the campaign trail wanted to make government cool again. if you look at this week between the secret service and jeff neely, he has accomplished something that he can probably run on. here is the thing. the spending at gsa is a problem. congress is right to look at it. this might go further. the bigger problem that no one is talking about is that our entitlement spending is the biggest problem.
2:28 am
whole we might need to do something at gsa we need to come together on social security, medicare and medicaid. or we can't solve upcoming problems. >> bob: you are right. is there a time to focus on big budget items. the gsa is a scandal. but this has nothing to do with obama. nothing to do with obama. the gsa as dana says lease buildings, buys buildings, puts furniture in buildings. not a very expensive agency. somebody has to do the job. why don't we talk about the big expenses? just in half a day spends more in social security, hundred times more. >> kimberly: eric? >> eric: stay on the gsa. that's what the topic is. but the point is the gsa does manage buildings, it doesn't buy the building. it manages them. i guess there is a purpose for it. here is the problem, when there is smoke, there is fire. there happens to be a ton of smoke here. this stuff reaps of just basic kick-back stuff. these guys were probably -- i
