6:00 am
actually gone up to 8.3%. hard to go away with the win there when you see the number to increase. >> what's the difference here? two different surveys really. that's why there is disparity. 163,000 jobs added, in fact, there was some silver lining in these jobs because it looked like the last time we had the jobs report. those numbers were revised up, also. t seems like things are stabilizing. a number of americans who stopped looking for work at 150,000. and interestingly, friday, the stock market soared on the jobs numbers, 217 points. >> brought up the people that left the workforce, that usually means the number goes down. this labor force continues to shrink and shrink and shrink which usually takes that number down. t is not. here we are how many jobs reports left before this election really you have got august and september. that is it as far as romney and obama go. >> number comes out friday right before the election or two days after that, people
6:01 am
probably have made up their minds. >> october numbers. look, what does this mean for the election? does it mean good things for romney? probably more so than obama at this point. >> u 6 number calculates folks working part time. it also throws in there the number of unemployment in addition to part time and people who have stopped looking for work. >> a lot of people point to this number like to your point this would be the real unemployment number 15%. if you ask the folks on wall street yesterday. again, the numbers soaring. trying to look for the silver lining. we now return to the 2007 level when goods and manufacturing, that same level. but there is 5 million fewer jobs since 2007. so, manufacturing may have returned to that same point but the jobs haven't. >> right. yesterday, i was on "fox & friends," and an hour before the numbers came out and we
6:02 am
were all talking about how are these candidates going to handle these numbers? this is what barack obama said after the numbers came out. >> here's the thing. we are not going to get there. we are not going to get to where we need to be if we go back to the policies that helped to create this mess in the first place. and the last thing we should be doing is asking middle class families struggling to recover from this recession to pay more in taxes. >> blaming the previous administration but also keeping with the obama administration and re-election narrative here more on that later. mitt romney also came out yesterday and had a different take focusing instead of the overall jobs added number, specifically that unemployment number at 8.3%. take a listen. >> it's another hammer blow to the struggling middle class families of america because the president has not had
6:03 am
policies that put american families back to work. i do. i will put them in place and get america working again. these numbers are not just statistics. these are real people. really suffering. having hard times. 23 million americans out of work or stopped looking for work way under employed. 23 million. the official unemployment number 8.3%. >> that's the message mitt romney has to it continue to stay on now under the 100 day mark from the election. charles krauthammer last night on "special report" weighing in on overall the general pattern, not going where it needs to be at this point in the recovery. >> the rate itself is not the key. it's the rate of change. it's going in the wrong direction. it rose. that's what hurts obama. said to the "new york times" that this is the worst recovery ever including during
6:04 am
the great depression. he said if you aren't scared by that you don't know what's going on. pretty heavy as we used to say. election day might be too late. why? because 47 -- 40% of votes may already be cast at that point thanks to early voting in states across the country. in ohio, battleground zero for early voting right now. the obama campaign is looking at ohio and they are having issues with the way the military can vote ahead of time. wanting everybody to vote early. they think it might help them. >> military members obviously have the ability to vote early. three day period before the elections. the obama administration at clayton's point suing to remove that.
6:05 am
what they want is everyone in ohio to have this exact same right to be able to vote early. now, what those who speak for the military say is, look, he they have obvious reasons that they need a special period, need flexibility. they have a little different situation than you and i. they have to protect our country. but, ainsley, this is a difficult situation because should everybody be lopped in or should the military get special privileges? >> let's hear what president obama's campaign spokesperson has to say? a n. addition to that we will hear from the ohio secretary of state on this. >> i just find it troubling that the republics would use veteran groups as cover fire for their real mission. real mission quite obvious solid to restrict people from voting three days before the election. >> i am just outraged by. this i can't believe that, you know, the obama campaign, state democratic party are actually saying there is no rational basis for a distinction between someone who is in the military voting and someone who is not in the
6:06 am
military. >> someone who is in the military allen west had reaction to all of this out of florida. he writes and says as a combat veteran for this president to unleash his campaign cronies against our military is unconscionable, how dare this president compare the service, sacrifice, and commitment of those who guard our liberties not as special and steek compare them to everyone else, barack obama is undeserving of the title of commander in chief. >> we'll put that out to you folks. let us know on twitter ff weekend at should the military get that specific privilege alone as well as overseas voters. three day period, should they get that or should everyone have that right. >> all right. well, the military, we have the right to vote because the men and women fought for us. so keep that in mind. now, for your headlines this morning. we begin with yet another scare in the air. two planes coming dangerously close to each other while landing at detroit metro
6:07 am
airport last night. the incident reportedly involving a delta flight from phoenix and small regional jet. one passenger said that he could see the other plane clearly from his cabin window. f.a.a. officials admit the planes did come a mile closer than standard safety regulation allow. the planes were not at risk at colliding. this incident comes as you know just days after three u.s. airways jets collided at international airport. officials there blaming a communication there heart wremplegging new details about the shooting rampage inside a movie theater. that one in colorado that you are well aware of. well, there are now indications that one of the victims, 26-year-old navy veteran jonathan blunk might have died while trying to stop the shooter. he was buried yesterday in reno, nevada. authorities reportedly telling his family and friends that he tried to grab the shooter's gun before ultimately taking a bullet to shield his friend. we are also learning the university of colorado has now hired a former u.s. attorney to review the handling of the
6:08 am
alleged shooter james holmes. as you may know the 24-year-old was a medical student there and school psychiatrist claims that she warned her colleagues he might be dangerous up to six weeks before that attack. forget snakes on planes. how about bees? a delta flight at pittsburgh international airport was delayed 20 minutes when a cluster of honeybees found on a wing. the airport had to bring in a beekeeper to remove the buzzing. >> getting ready to fuel and came around the plane and on the wing is a cluster of hone bees. it was a shocker to a lot of people. >> what in the world? this is the fourth incident this year at pittsburgh international airport. the beekeeper says despite all the buzzing, the hone bees are harmless. just took a the love time, i'm sure, to call that beekeeper, get him out there. >> look up a beekeeper in the yellow pages, rick. we have got to get a beekeeper out here. >> how do you explain that your flight is delayed?
6:09 am
>> i don't know. think you are making it up. a fluster in the toilet? , no, just bees. a lot of weather going on this he can would. severe storms across the plains. quick relief for the temperatures across the plains. quick and short-lived but take it when you can get it i guess. the tropics we haven't been talking about that much. going to be getting them a lot. very very active over the next couple of days. severe weather already overnight we had some of it you can see all this cluster of storms across areas of nebraska and minnesota. that's the beginning of what today is going to be a bit of severe weather. i don't want to say outbreak. better chance of outbreak tomorrow to the east of it today we are going to be dealing with strong winds. maybe central plains. also it's the tropics, tropical storm and another depression that's formed off there towards the east. talk quickly about ernesto here because this potential solid an impact for maybe south texas about a week from now. likely we will continue to see
6:10 am
this pull off towards the west and i think mexico, the official track has a hurricane hitting mexico by the time we get toward wednesday this week. a lot of uncertainty with this one. bears watching and right of course on target timewise where we should be seeing activity pick up. guys? >> thanks so much, rick. coming up on the show, millions came out to show their support for chick-fil-a by buying up chicken and waffle fries. yesterday's kiss-in counter protest barely causing a stir. next guest says kiss-in was a bad move. >> bigger threat than nuke. why senator john kerry thinks so. that's coming up. [ donovan ] i hit a wall. and i thought "i can't do this, it's just too hard." then there was a moment. when i decided to find a way to keep going.

6:12 am
male spirit present.trong it's the priceline negotiator. >>what? >>sorry. he wants you to know about priceline's new express deals. it's a faster way to get a great hotel deal without bidding. pick one with a pool, a gym, a great guest rating. >>and save big. >>thanks negotiator. wherever you are. ya, no. he's over here. >>in the refrigerator? >> welcome back, chick-fil-a supporters flock across the
6:13 am
country last week. same sex supporters staged a kiss-n protest of the chain's president's comments opposing gay marriage. was the kiss-in effective and how was the protest different from appreciation day? joining us now to weigh in on this is radio talk show host tammy bruce. how are you? >> good morning. it's a pleasure to be here. >> thanks for coming in this morning for us. how do you think the fay community handled the kiss-in and was it a success? >> you know, it wasn't on a couple of levels. one, appreciation day did have hundreds of thousands if not millions of people who came out it is a little embarrassing when you have about 20 who show up maybe in cleveland and then there is, you know, vandalism here in los angeles. it's a little embarrassing. as a gay woman, i actually disagree a bit with mr. cathy's statements but i admire him and his company. and i'm thinking it really exposes the lack of awareness amongst the gay community. the gay rights movement started to combat intolerance and the idea of a certain
6:14 am
majority that was wanted force on the gay community a certain type of behavior. here we are in the 21st century with that same kind of behavior now being exhibited by the liberal gay community certainly but there are many of us who are embarrassed by that it also kind of edges poses the -- exposes a realization they can't win on the merits of the argument. a bids for attention and somewhat sad. >> was this effort more about freedom of speech or americans being against gay marriage? >> well, look, it ended up being about freedom of speech, didn't it? originally it was started by mr. huckabee, of course. but there were many of us civil unions or anything else. whatever you want to call it
6:15 am
it was quite shocking to many people to have such a blatant effort made to punch an individual, a family owned company simply because they might disagree on a political issue. remember, also, mr. cathy's position wasn't about being against gay people, it was about being for traditional marriage and reinforcing his view of the family which is in large part what has made this country great. so, for all of us, whether would he be gay or straight, we have really benefited from that value system and i frankly i saw a lot of gays distancing themselves from what was happening yesterday. i think many of them understand this issue. and at the very least, they should brush up on their orwell and read more animal farm. >> tammy, is it necessary, i want to ask you what you think about. this a the love companies are going out of their way to support the gay community. you have j.c. penney hiring allen and same sex couple catalogs, kraft food. bud light. microsoft, starbucks, nike,
6:16 am
amazon, these are all companies we all use every day. is this necessary for companies to get involved in these social issues? >> well, i think, look, if there is recognition that like, look, all of america, a lot of people watch the ellen show, there is the conservative community, majority of heterosexuals don't mind seeing that. a majority of republicans now recognize as starting with the of course the cheney family and seeing examples of individuals they admire who are gay, that they appreciate that and support it now. i think if it's done tastefully, the majority of americans appreciate it look, measures love the underdog. we are a nation, if you will, of minorities, and so it's natural. we reject the extremist position. again as a gay woman it's very disturbing to finally see after so much progress has been made to finally see the gay community begin to it act in a fascist framework when that's what we have been fighting against all along. i trust that the majority of
6:17 am
americans, whether they be liberal or conservative really get or gay or straight really get what this fight is about, which is about individualism, everyone has a right to their opinion. and the fact that they can afford to respect each other in that regard. >> tammy, thank you so much. what a pleasure to talk to you this morning. >> my pleasure. >> have a good one. >> the economy still struggling and latest unemployment number is not helping. how will this effect the election going forward? we have an economist here to talk about this and tell us all -- break it all down for us. then, police arrest a homeowner who was just trying to protect his own property now he is facing charges. should he be charged at all. that debate coming up.
6:18 am
6:19 am
6:20 am
6:21 am
>> 163,000 jobs added last month. unemployment rate jumped to 8.3%. and republic presidential candidate mitt romney says there is just another blow to hard working americans. specifically those in the middle class. job creation. hear to way weigh in on this is the university of maryland peter morici. nice to see you this morning. >> nice to see you. >> you are looking at these numbers on friday morning and we heard what mitt romney had to say there coming out about in this is a hammer down on the middle class and problem for the country. later in the afternoon, the stock market source to 217 soars to 217 points and ignores this.
6:22 am
>> you have to ignore the stock market, it will go down again on monday. popping champagne bottles and saying this is great progress. we have seen progress like this before only to fall down. it comes to 35 jobs for every city and county in the united states. think about it. 35 new jobs in manhattan. that's something to pop champagne? >> that's just one mcdonald's down the street. >> he they did say we have too many folks out there looking for work. we have more work to do on their behalf. is it enough to say we are back on the upslope after one uptick there in the job creation number? we need to create bring unemployment down to 6.6%. we are well capable of doing that mr. reagan i object laterred a bigger mess, unemployment peeked for him at 10.4% unlike obama's 10 and by
6:23 am
this time, he had unemployment down to about 7. and with a lot more people looking whereas with this president, a lot of people have quit looking. we had 348,000 people quit the labor force if think hadn't done that unemployment would have jumped to 8.5 or 8.6%. also looking at the numbers as it relates to manufacturing. some saying we have come back to the point where we were right prior to the recession. which is manufacturing is kind of getting back to that point of 2007. but, 5 million people still out of work. that's 5 million jobs numbers down. it's not on par with 2007. is that a good sign? manufacturing goods and services being shipped overseas? >> well, you know, we continue to bleed jobs to china. although we have picked um manufacturing jobs. look at how much the trade deficit with china has grown during this recovery. that represents jobs. it's grown so much that it's worth about 2.5 million jobs
6:24 am
think about that. that would slice a couple points off the unemployment rate and get us into the zone of acceptability. mr. obama promised to do something about that in 2008 and has come up short. >> peter, two, maybe three maybe jobs reports left before the election. congress clearly not going to act. presumably the feds will not with unemployment numbers. whatever is going to -- >> what you saw on friday is what you are likely to see in the next couple of jobs report. what romney has to do is better connect. i will create jobs. that's fine. he has to tell people how he will do that. how his policies on trade and energy and very tangible terms using, you know, antidotes and cases and charlie here lost his job because his factory closed and the envelopes are now made in china because x, y, z and i can fix that. if he does that he will win. unfortunately a lot of the
6:25 am
stuff coming out of the campaign doesn't do that if is august and a lot of people still at the beach. debate system get more details. peter morici, thanks for weighing up early with us and breaking all this down with us. >> knives to see you as always. >> coming up next, forget nuclear weapons and world war. senator john kerry says global warming is just as big a threat. is it really? >> ask that polar bear. food stamps for people who don't need them millions of dollars wasted on households who are doing just fine. think you can't get great auto insurance coverage
6:26 am
and a great rate? think again! mary switched to allstate, got an agent, and saved $326.00 on her car insurance. john switched, got an agent, and saved $263.00! drivers who switched to allstate saved an average of $375 a year on car insurance. and allstate will send you two bonus checks a year every year you stay accident free with our safe driving bonus. when i switched to allstate my savings amounted to $436 a year. when i switched from my old insurance company to allstate i saved over $800 a year. [ host ] call your local allstate agent now and get one hundred dollars off your deductible the day you sign up with deductible rewards, and another hundred off every year you don't have an accident.

6:28 am
>> thanks for waking up with us. senator john kerry on wednesday took to the floor in the senate in a major address he said we need to pay attention to global warming. he in fact went so far to insult climate skeptics, lumping them in the category as flat earthers, basically saying that they are in the same camp. if you are against climate and think there is is a problem with it, you are a flat earther. after what harry reid said on the senate floor, it's hard to raise the bar on stupidity on the senate floor. comparing the threat of nuclear weapons to something
6:29 am
as far off and as to your point disputed and not proven as climate change, that is a tough needle to thread. but john kerry attempted to do than 00 senate floor. listen. >> i believe the situation that we face, mr. president, is as dangerous as any of the sort of real crises that we talked about today. we had a hearing in the foreign relations committee on the subject of syria. and we all know what's happening with respect to iran and nuclear weapons and the possibility of even a war. well, this issue actuallily is of as significant a level of importance because it effects life itself on the planet. because it effects ecosystems on which the oceans and land depend for the relationship of the warmth of our earth and
6:30 am
the amount of moisture that there is and all of the interaction was that occur as a consequence of our climate. >> we had a climate skeptic i guess you could say on the show a few weeks ago who was disputing some of the new numbers coming out saying it's indisputable that climate change is happening. it's just the rate and speed to which it is happening. does it rise to the level of iran? >> right, ask israel how they feel about that? what's as imminent, right? something that could potentially be hundreds of years away or a country next door that wants to wipe you off the face of the map? >> we will remind you we will not have a ecosystem or moisture or climate if we have nuclear weapons that go off because that doesn't happen over years. that happens in a matter of seconds that the whole world can be wiped out. keep that in mind. >> we didn't take them out of context, clearly we gave him full context there and gave him plenty of rope. >> let us know what you think about this friends at >> it is is is a happy
6:31 am
birthday. how will he celebrate his special day? peter doocy is live in washington, d.c. with those details for us. good morning, peter. >> good morning ainsley. we will probably have to wait to see what president obama looks like as a 51-year-old because there are no public events listed on his schedule. he is at the white house right now. there is a chance that he will stay at the white house all day long. but we do know there is going to be a party in his honor at his house out in chicago. that won't be until next sunday. if you weren't invited by now you are probably not going to go to that party. some regular folks will be in attendance because the series of fundraising emails were sent out over the last few weeks. including some under first lady michelle obama's name telling potential donors if they ponied up three bucks for the campaign they will be automatically entered for the chance to join that party, which is going to be one of four fundraisers he will attend next sunday. and which is expected to be a lot more low key than its 50th birthday part august 4th.

portraits. when i moved to houston it was like a blood bath. i had over 700 murders that year and i just went down and forced myself on the houston police officers. and it was very difficult. i had to freelance for seven and a quarter years bringing all my gear in the building, setting up in a room and breaking it down and putting it in the trunk of my car at the end of the sketch. every third sketchy would do would solve the crime. finally they gave me a job after seven and a quarter years. what the people of the united states do not understand is there is only about two dozen forensic artist in the entire country. almost every state and city does not have a whole time forensic artist. i just got the artist in chicago started. they don't have a full-time artist in chicago. but i got one started that took my class. and he he is solving all kind of crimes. sketch artist solve 30% of the time when they sketch. fingerprints only solve 10% of the time yet everybody has fingerprints available. really it's actually less than
6:45 am
10%. most artist have more than 30% success rate. all the departments have fingerprints but don't have forensic artists. it's a new field and i'm a pioneer and i'm trying to develop as many forensic artist i can before i pass away from the earth. >> we are looking at some of your artwork uncanny how much they look like alike when they catch these criminals. what's one case that comes to mind that sticks out for new particular? i have solved over 1266. you might have attention from i did from a mommy who saw a woman in her room, her hospital room and that woman kidnapped her 10 hour old baby a tiny newborn 10 hours old. i got with that mommy and she was hysterical. as soon as the sketch came out the friend hot kidnapper brought this little newborn baby over to show her friend she hadn't seen in years. when the friend saw the sketch on tv they got the baby back

6:54 am
lawn mower out of the shed. they were stealing it. >> he can take certain steps like threatening them as you originally purported this story but he actually tried to execute him. can't execute a guy. >> in the leg. >> i would go with the baseball bat. that's how i bring it. baseball bat that's a little more reasonable. >> we appreciate the passionate debate arthur. >> go fire. >> backyard tonight don't shoot. >> weigh in on twitter. let me know. should this man be arrested. find me on twitter at dave briggs tv. quick thinking helped save her member's life. something is wrong with my mom. >> are you with your mom right now? >> yes. >> how that 5-year-old there saved the day. illegal immigration policy disqualified if you drive drunk but open access if you steal someone's identity.

7:00 am
>> i'm hanging out at the beach, baby. >> not over yet. summer is not over o. still have another good month. some people started school. oklahoma city already started school. >> here. look august. unemployment numbers. >> dog days. >> dog days right now, right? >> weird unemployment numbers. 8.3%, unplymouth rate jumping up there jobs rate added in july 163,000. you had wall street soaring on friday thanks to the jobs. they are not happy about the unemployment rate. >> right. and then if you look at that little number down at the bottom the u-6 number 15%. a lot of people say this is the actual unemployment number. because it factors in the people all together people who aren't happy in their jobs. >> if there is a positive it's that this election has been very well framed in terms of the economy there should be no real middle ground in terms of what you want, what you think
7:01 am
this country ought to do to get the economy back on the right track. the president clearly has one philosophy. and he has talked a lot about bottom out. bottom up even middle up economies here is what he said this week on how this economy in his opinion needs to grow. >> nobody is satisfied with our pace of growth. nobody is satisfied even with all the jobs we have created we have got to create more, but if you look at our history, if you look at the facts, every time we have grown, it hasn't been by the top down. it's been from the middle out. it's been from the bottom up. so interestingly, the narrative so far has been. we have heard, flight that no and historically i should say no president with these types of numbers has been reelected at this point since franklin roosevelt with these types of unemployment numbers. we think wow, this is terrible for the president heading into the re-election time. but rush limbaugh yesterday had some really interesting viewpoints on whether or not this economy is actually
7:02 am
helping the president. take a listen. >> i just divots an email from a friend. and the subject line of the email, am i being paranoid? here's the question. could the increasing number of unemployed actually help obama? your first reaction, how does that compute, rush, how the increasing number of unemployed help obama? well, if you are out of work. you might start thinking, you know what? i'm going to need government handouts. if there aren't any jobs, i'm going to need government handouts. er who is the guy passing them out now obama. i throw that out there as a think piece. doesn't that boil down to the question we are all asking how many people have been converted to permanent takers and how many people aren't?
7:03 am
>> it is interesting. although the other side of that is well, would you want a job rather than the government handout? >> it depends. >> that's a good question. >> i think what rush is saying that's the divide here. the folks that are out of work. you have those that are actively seeking jobs without government assistance and then you have those who are relying on the government. either meaning they are not seeking jobs just live on unemployment or actively looking but also using their unemployment. >> food stamps, social security disability skyrocketing, the last three years. that's what i mean about a positive. clearly two very different philosophies on what it takes to get this economy moving. some want handouts, some don't want handouts a very clear disparity between the two. >> go to twitter, sign up and follow ff weekend on twitter and let us know. do you think that rush has a point here. does this economy right now actually help president obama? let us know.

>> now, for your headlines. we will begin with yet another scare in the air. with it airplanes coming dangerously close to one another while landing at detroit metro last night. the incident reportedly involving a delta flight from phoenix and a small regional jet. one passenger said that he could see the other plane clearly from his cabin window. f.a.a. officials admit the plane did come about a mile closer than standard safety regulations allow. imagine sitting on this plane and seeing out of your window another plane very close to you. however, they say the planes were not at risk at colliding. this incident comes just a few days after three u.s. airway jets nearly collided at reagan international airport. officials there blaming a communications error. the obama administration outlining its controversial new immigration policy. the sweeping reform would allow more than 1 million illegal immigrants to stay in the u.s. so long as they meet the criteria. the certain criteria. for example, they must be under the age of 30.

7:15 am
wall street friday. 217 points stock market rose on these jobs numbers. they were excited about these jobs numbers. why? >> you know what? because they just want something to talk about to pretend like something is god. to be able to keep hope and change and whatever the forward period is it's all marketing. it is absolutely not representative of what's happening. small business don't get up and go what's the stock market look today. they go how am i going to make payroll. >> is there a lot of uncertainty for small businesses? i spoke to a small business owner california has to take seminar on obama care. they're not entirely sure how this is going to effect payroll. increase or decrease the number of employees they have based on how they implement obama care. still uncertainty in the small business sector is that driving some of this problem? >> not just uncertainty. here is what is wrong. we are unpaid servants to the government. i'm spending hours of very valuable time. i'm the most expensive resource of my company and i'm

7:23 am
about you? >> i was an air force officer. i went to the air force academy. i was in the third class with women to graduate from the air force academy i think it's our call to service and our country is in deep trouble. it's not going to be easy to get out of this. and those of us do so as all of us did in another capacity in another life. >> we are looking at some of your questions martha your turn. served in the air force for 2 of years. fired pilot. privilege to be the first woman to fly a fighter in combat and command a fighter squadron in combat. oath of office member of congress is the same as a military officer. i consider this a call to duty. next assignment to serve my country. got a heart of service. got some serious issues in our country right now. we have got a vacuum of leadership. so i felt very convicted and called to step up and serve in this new way. >> there is one female veteran
7:24 am
serving in congress. sandy adams is from florida. republic in florida. heather, have you run before. what's your advice to these other women. these 10 women or nine other women running for congress this year? >> well, i served with the congress for 10 years. while i was there, sandy and i didn't overlap although it would have been nice to have somebody else there with me at the time. a lot of it is, everyone comes with their story. our story is women's veterans is a very powerful one that people relate to. i mean, the military has cralted young leaders both men and women as one of the most respected institutions in our society and they train leaders. and now it's our opportunity to brick that leadership skill to a new arena. and i think that's an important message to be able to connect to people other one is just work hard. it's' a lot of hard work. >> that's great advice for all of us. i was reading about your platform and you say want to reduce the role of government
7:25 am
and jobs jobs jobs. how do you plan to take action? >> well, this is all about the economy right now. businesses are not hiring and people are not spending their money you a the sun turn i community out of the way. businesses can start hiring again and entrepreneurial spirit can reign. heather is a wonderful example and pioneer for all of us how she served. i look forward to joining her and sandy on the hill. >> this why i love women we support one another, right? donna, real quickly your motto not left, not right but forward. why is this your motto. >> because of all the gridlock, ainsley. we see so much partisanship and obstructionism and waiving of party flags. in the military we are about service. i took an oath to serve when i was 17 and that oath never expired when i entered west point and when i entered the army. and we're about team work. we are about that mission

worth of damage. you had people smearing excrement on cop cars. it cost the economy. you had punch people. hate filled crowd. angle to it that nobody has talked about. that is an underlying current of anti-semitism. same kind of anti-semitism we see out of this white house. to some in the crowd, many in the crowd, rich people are jewish. and they are bad. and that was something i didn't see talked about it a lot. it was very evident on the ground. then you have chick-fil-a. >> i don't understand the connection. explain that connection. >> what do you mean. >> the anti-semitism. >> there was these protests, look, when you go around the world as i have, 9/11 was reported as buildings in new york filled with a lot of jewish bankers.

8:00 am
many people are saying this is the true unemployment number because you have to factor in the people working. jobs they don't like and jobs they had to take. and part-time employees well. >> of course the back drop of all of, this we are under 100 days from the election. how does what we saw on friday impact the election? dramatically one would think. the obama administration wants to see this as a pattern of this economy improving of a recovery. hard to make that rg ament but he will try thread the needle here. >> >> not going to if we go back to the policies that got us here in the first place. middle class families still struggling to recover from this recession to pay more in taxes. >> go back and blame bush. >> bo back and look at the
8:01 am
history what the president was dealing with. trying to paint this picture still digging out of the mess left by president bush. is it reason nalgt. maybe internally the obama administration has seen poll numbers. we have heard from pollsters saying that may be working for hip. mitt romney went after that 8.3% on the campaign trail yesterday talking about how this is a hammer down on the people looking for work. take a listen. >> it's another hammer blow to the struggling middle class families of america because the president has not had policies that put american families back to work. i do. i'll put them in place and get america working again. these numbers are not just statistics. these are real people really suffering. having hard times. 23 million americans out of work or stopped looking for work way under employed. 23 million. the official unemployment number 8.3%. >> if there is one thing it did, i guess it -- the perception is it stopped the pleading because you were seeing that job creation
8:02 am
number continue continue to trickle counsel. now at least it goes back up if you look at that in a general pattern. that's about enough to keep pace with population growth in the united states. not to do a thing about our unemployment rate. in fact recollect if we create 160,000 jobs a month. we won't return to prerecession up employment numbers until 20205. >> that's a long time. >> that's a long time. >> i'm no matt genius. >> these are not the numbers we need. >> we interviewed economist at the top of the show peter morici and he was talking about reagan and what the unemployment was when reagan went into office and what was this point during his career where obama is or president obama is at this point. take a listen to this. >> we need to create maybe 375 to 400,000 jobs a month. each and every month for three years to bring unemployment down to 6%. we're well capable of doing that you know, mr. reagan inherited a bigger mess unemployment peeked for at
8:03 am
10.4%. by this time he had unemployment down to 7. and with a lot more people looking. whereas with this president, a lot of people have quit looking. you know, we had 348,000 people quit the labor force, and if they hadn't done that last month. unemployment would have jumped to 8.5 or 8.6%. >> more on that coming up a little bit later. we have carl rove on the show to talk about t as well as governor mike huckabee. meanwhile, on the floor of the senate these days it's interesting the senators who take to the senate floor to make accusations and have interesting discussions. well, senator john kerry in a major sort of policy discussion this week on wednesday taking the senate floor to make the claim that climate change is as much of a threat to the united states as iran. take a listen. >> i believe the situation that we face, mr. president, is as dangerous as any of the sort of real crises that we talked about stowed. we had a hearing in the foreign relations committee on
8:04 am
the subject of syria. and we all know what's happening with respect to iran and nuclear weapons and the possibility even of a war. well, this issue actually is of as significant a level of importance because it effects life itself on the planet. >> >> you wonder if that was in his notes. there was a big long pause there before he sort of slid that -- there is a couple of billing differences, one, global warm very much disputed in the scientific community. two, ask israel what's more urgent and dire. they have a neighbor whose nuclear weapons are being police officer rated they want to wipe israel off the face of the map. what's more dire if you are israel or the united states. something that's potentially hundreds of years away or could happen any moment? >> we have experts on the show that say they don't disagree
8:05 am
climate change is happening. speed and pace of which is under dispute of course. last night iran announced that they have successfully test their brand new conquer missile. their conquering missile. that's the name of it has been successfully tested and brand new missile guidance system suspect and running and deployed across the entire country and all of their future missile programs. that's iran, that's last night. i don't know what -- yeah. >> maybe is he in that thing thg with harry reid before going to the senate floor to make accusations. >> i like your point. what's more imminent? >> a conquer missile. >> a nuke, a missile, right? or global warming. >> let us know. >> now to your headlines. yet another scare in the air. two planes coming dangerously close to one another while landing at metro. delta flight from phoenix and small regional jet. one passenger said he could actually see another plane clearly from his cabin window f.a.a. officials admit the planes did come close to one another within a mile of one

will lose their jobs when that coal mine shuts down. >> within the last four months our unemployment shot from 7% to 12%. >> if you look at the price. i was looking at this last night, todd, the pryce per mega what the, quite an increase. these companies can't keep up. >> no, they can't. the reason why all of us should be concerned is because our electric bills are going to go up if they keep shutting down these plants. back to this point. the obama administration says there are more coal jobs. in boone county, west virginia, when obama was elected. the unemployment rate was 4%. right now the unemployment rate in that community is 12%. so, again, those numbers. >> is this legal? >> how big a factor is this in the election do you believe? sab qulowbsly in west virginia is it more widespread from that. >> i believe it is. dispatches from america talked about this particular region of the country.
8:16 am
the president talked about these people being bitter clingers. this particular county boone county voted for barack obama back in 2008. they voted for him. he they believed in the hope and change he promised. in 2000 -- whenever they did the primary just a couple of months back that county voted for the federal inmate instead of president obama. >> right. i do remember that story. that was a little bit wacky. is this legal can a politician do this. >> he is do doog it pay he prom mid. >> new jersey lag narpg you can jack up price and put people out of work? you heard what vice president biden said on the no clean coal. they are followed through on the promise. >>ed to starns, fox news radio correspondent. thanks for being here. >> unemployment jumps to 8.3%. how badly will the lack of recovery hurt the president's re-election chances?
8:17 am
we will ask governor mike huckabee. he is coming up next. beware of the dr. google. why using the internet to self-diagnose your illness is even more dangerous than you think. i'm a big fan of web md.

>> welcome back, here are quick headlines for you, nasa shelling out more than a billion dollars to create more rocket ships to take cargo and astronauts to the international space station. the project could be done as early as 2015. and clinton eastwood might have just made mitt romney's day. the oscar winning director endorsing romney as his choice for president. saying he hopes the candidate can help fix the broken tax system in our country.
8:21 am
clayton, over to you. >> thank you, ainsley. do you rush to dr. google to self-diagnose your every illness? my co-host dave does that well, a new study says you may be playing roulette with your health. for example, searching the web infant safety. half are inaccurate or completely irrelevant. what do you need to know before do you a search. dr. nice to see you this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> i'm sorry in 201059% of the u.s. population jumped online to do an internet search to find out what ails them. is that a problem? >> i'm surprised actually that it's not higher than that because some patients come into the office, they say they are always checking things on google. and we're in an age now where we just google everything. so, i think that figure is just going to get higher as time goes by. >> he would hear this with real estate agents, right in the real estate agents say most of my clients now come to me. they have a few ideas that
8:22 am
they have googled first before they do me to buy a house. people are doing that with their own organs now? >> they are. the internet is very accessible. people have access to the internet on mobile phones on internet at work. so easy to google just put in a symptom, a sign, a condition and hundreds of different web sites come up. >> so you have provided us with some online health info dos and don'ts. take us through some of them. start with do not self-diagnose. >> that's probably one of the most important things. the internet can be very very useful. but it can also falsely reassure. also cause a lot of anxiety. say, for example, if you have blood in the urine, you may have a urinary tract infection or may have bladder cancer and the internet can frighten a lot of people. also they may read something and say that's okay, this is not a problem. i don't need to go to the doctor. so the internet is helpful but it should not be a substitute for going to a doctor. >> which is important. second tip make sure you go to the doctor make blood samples
8:23 am
and do those things. do take printed info to your doctor. >> that's right. if you read something on the internet and you think this is helpful. ask your doctor what he thinks. do you think this is a good idea? also for many people who have been diagnosed with a condition and they are going to see their doctor, if you want more information, ask your doctor what they would recommend is a good site if you want to learn more about your medical condition. >> you say there are recommended and reliable sites out there. they can't all be bad. talk about that infant sleep study some of them are bad. you say there are great ones out there. tell us what you recommend people look at. >> i would recommend people try and stay away from the patient blogs because blogs are usually not put together by medical personnel. they can be sometimes. but better web site, web md is actually very useful. i looked at conditions in my own specialty. it was fairly accurate. web m.d. is a useful resource. mayo clinic. >> wikipedia? >> it is very thorough,
8:24 am
actually. the information on there was surprisingly accurate. we also know that web sites have been put together by the government that end dot those generally are much more reliable. >> like the national institute of health. >> correct. >> that's also on your list great information this morning. because of i think that's what we tend to do. we feel my stomach is giving me a problem. i'm going to go to the internet first before seeing a doctor. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >> i hope dave was paying attention. up next on the run down, food stamps for people who don't need them. millions of dollars wasted on households who are doing just fine. fraud? people across the country rallied this week to support chic fillet. by buying some chicken. yesterday's kissing counter protest caused a stir. the man behind the chick-fil-a appreciation day is there on atv. governor mike huckabee is

8:31 am
lazy and then look at this. he leads. >> is he fantastic. >> he is amazing, so great. we support him. >> we're happy for colorado native missy franklin. at least this guy is rick reichmuth, have you been watching the olympics and enjoying it. >> absolutely. loving it. >> where are you? >> up here. >> he is in camouflage. >> what is he doing? >> sitting in a chair really high up competition. >> i know. clayton, you like it when bass pro shops comes because it's fall. >> right. >> i like it because i get to climb up on something, olympics swimming relay like way up there where they shoot the gun. >> they brought a shorter one thisser i don't. i think i scared them when i climbed up it last year. we will see if they bring the fall one back next year. >> don't fall. >> i won't. >> take a look at the picture maps. take a look at this picture sent in to me from deep water, missouri, absolutely beautiful sunrise. clayton you will be interested it know she says she took this with her iphone 4 s not a bad shot there yesterday morning sunrise in deep water.

8:33 am
plains. 94 tomorrow in rapid city. >> back to you inside. >> thank you so much, rick. let's bring in governor mike huckabee this morning. talk about all the chick-fil-a news. up employment numbers that came out the end of the week. some americans out of work. rather than retreading the same numbers and pulling them apart. i thought it was really fascinating the way that rush limbaugh put in this week and wondering whether or not this economy is helping president obama right now. traditionally the mind set is this wouldn't be helping. how is this guy going to get reelected with these snubs is this helping him because so many people relying on government support. what do you think about that? >> i'm not sure i agree that people are saying oh good we need to keep barack obama because his management of the economy has essentially driven into the ditch that he said it was in under george w. bush. when you have the unemployment numbers as high as they're, the highest since the great depression, he is always talking about since the great depression. well, 42 months of consecutive
8:34 am
unemployment rates above 8%, that's just simply not good. >> no president has ever won with those records. >> i think you have got to remember, too. this myth that people want to be on government assistance is nonsense. people want to be independent and stand on their own. they want to be moving ahead and not behind. if you are on government assistance you are not getting ahead. you are at best staying still. you may be getting behind. people want to do better than they're doing, not worse, not staying put. and the only wave you can do better is when you can shake off all of the government programs and stand on your own two feet. >> you can imagine mitt romney is going to stale focused on the economy. of course, this next week will probably be about the vice presidential pick. it looks like stocks that -- >> thinks this is basically a two or three day bounce and that's it. even given all the very interesting candidates. is there anyone out there that could change the narrative and shake things up the dynamic
8:35 am
for mitt romney as v.p. >> long term probably not. what he has to do is pick someone that helps the ticket. stunt hurt the ticket. doesn't overshadow him. doesn't become more of the factor. but he needs someone who can rally the base. i hope he if i cans somebody who connects he is having somewhat difficulty connecting to. >> if you were running and you have so you know what this is like. >> a of t-shirts available too if you need some. >> still stickers available. you are looking at states like ohio which has been a bit of a problem for mitt romney lately. some of the poll numbers in recent weeks have that the been good for mitt romney. does that factor in on presidential choice? i have got to win ohio i have got to pick rob portman. >> it very well may and probably should factor into it. that doesn't mean is he going to pick rob portman it certainly gives a good balance tip to a portman. you look at somebody who can bring something. and if you are raiser edge in a state, now what you do is find out does portman actually bring ohio? are people still just voting
8:36 am
for the top of the ticket? >> doesn't appear that way. according to the polls it doesn't look like he makes a tremendous difference. who would you pick? >> well, you know, i have been a rubio fan for a long time. i have known marco a long time. i like him. i think he brings an energy that would be explosive. >> or we overshadow mitt romney? >> i don't think he would. i think he would compliment mitt romney and i believe also he brings an energy to the base of the party. he is staunchly pro-life. unapologetically conservative. he is very traditional in his sense of approach to family issues. would be very acceptable to the base of the party. and that's important. >> experience is, that also an issue? dick cheney made a lot of headlines this week criticizing john mccain's pick of sarah palin thinking she didn't have the experience and couldn't have led the country, that was perhaps, way down the ticket. does he he pick someone who has a significant amount of experience so he doesn't get that criticism? >> you know, i think the wave to deflect that is to say whoever he picks pretty much from the first year city councilman up will have more
8:37 am
experience leading something than barack obama who was an absentee u.s. senator. not all that effective state senator and that was his entire preparation. he never had executive position in his life. so, if experience is the qualification, barack obama would never ever have been elected. >> when is he going to pick his v.p.? >> i don't know. is he not whispering in my ear to tell me that one thing about mitt romney people have to understand. he is not the kind of guy who makes emotional visceral decisions on the spur of the moment. is he not impromptu guy. thoughtful, methodical. meticulous in preparing for the decision. much like you would expect of a corporate executive used to making decisions that he had so see long term. that's how he will making this decision. >> there is campaign stops through swing states the next seven to ten days. i don't know if you have heard about this chick-fil-a story. >> really? what's that about? really? >> tell about this controversy regarding chick-fil-a and a lot of it well, the governor
8:38 am
he got that ball rolling. we ask what he thinks about this counter protest that went on on friday. >> plus, could a beetle really be to blame for holding up construction of the keystone pipeline? why the government's decision to protect this little bug cut put a wrench in development for up to a year. >> wring go. wake up! that's good morning, veggie style. hmmm. fohalf the calories plus vgie nutrition. could've had a v8.

thank you, nana send money to anyone's checking account with chase quickpay. all you need is an email address or mobile number. you're welcome. take a step forward and chase what matters. i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred.
8:40 am
before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, whilen enbrel, you experice persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biolog medicine prescribed by rheumatologists.
8:41 am
>> okay, welcome back, top stories on our web site for your health. a warning for fair goers. a new strain of swine flu spreading from animals to people. there have been 12 cases in just the last week and 10 were linked to a county fair in ohio. if you go to the fair, guys, wash your hands. kids who are fit are more likely to get better grades apparently. new study found student scores on standardized test went up the fitter they were. and, ladies, forget the milk. pick up a glass of wine for stronger bones. okay. twist my arm. according to a new study, drinking two glasses of wine a day helps a woman keep old bone -- their old bones helps them keep their old bones, makes them stronger apparently. when they stop drinking, i think i have been drinking, i can't read. this their bone loss decreases.
8:42 am
for more information visit slash weekend. >> it's always good to keep your old bones. chick-fil-a. >> that's what it said. >> i know. they had a controversy this weekend. i don't know if you heard anything about this was a hot story this weekend. yesterday, supporters of gay marriage held what they called a kiss-in. support of traditional marriage that was only after thousands turned out to support the change on wednesday buying up chicken and aachieving record sales. >> back with governor huckabee. the man behind chick-fil-a appreciation day. i don't know if you heard about any of this fuss. >> a little bit. >> what did you take away from all of this though? >> america, i put it this way, america ate chicken, rahm emanuel ate crow. it struck a nerve with americans that thought if you are on the left and you support same sex marriage, you know, you are protected, you are able to speak out and that's fine. but if you are a christian and you believe in a biblical world view of marriage, which
8:43 am
isn't all that crazy barack obama said he held that view until may, it's the view hillary clinton took. 32 to nothing. every time voters vote including like states in california and maine. the point is this is not outrageous view to believe that marriage is the traditional view. it's about free speech because can cathy as an individual simply expressed an opinion that is very consistent with a lot of other americans. the company doesn't push that you don't get a chicken sandwich that says marriage is only between a man and a woman. nobody is discriminated against in heir store, people felt it was blatantly unfair on one hand you have ceos ceos m apple computer and nike and starbucks who expressed themselves but dan cathy can't express himself? blatant hypocrisy and intolerance is what union knighted. >> go poor through the notes it wasn't about free speech
8:44 am
about intolerance. t is about where the money is going. he may have said. this when you pay for the chicken sandwich then that money then goes to anti-guy groups. >> buying his product not his politics. i have apple computers. iphone in my pocket. >> you drink coke will cola. >> sometimes, sometimes pepsi. i will tell you i drink starbucks. you know, i have shopped through amazon. all of these companies have ceos who give far more to the pro-gay cause than dan cathy has given to pro-marriage cause. i resented being called antigay. it's not antigay. it's the status quo. and when you protect the status quo, you are not against something, you are for that which is. it is the other side that is wanting to change the status quo and in any debate situation, the status quo stands unless someone successfully challenges this. >> the other side of this the
8:45 am
kiss-naacp which folk showed up. >> i'm not kissing you by the way. >> what did you make of the counter protest. >> i thought it was perfectly legitimate expression that people have a right to do. i was not nearly as troubled by that as the gays were troubled that there was a chick-fil-a appreciation day. in america this country is big enough that people can have different points of view. they have to be respectful. as long as they didn't impede traffic offer the ability of customers or employees to get to their jobs and do what they do, then so what? that's their choice. >> you think the gay marriage issue is going to be a hot topic this election, right? >> i do. i think it's going to be a much bigger topic than a lot of the prognosticators and pundits think. if you delve. >> huge mistake. hispanic and african-american communities this is not a popular position for the democrats to take in either of those communities. >> your show tonight, tell us about it what's coming up on the huckabee show. >> recap of the chick-fil-a

9:04 am
northeast and mid atlantic, guys? >> thanks so much. >> and all right, well, it's the unemployment number out on friday, and only three months until the election if you can believe that. can president obama overcome these jobs numbers, and the history involved behind all of this. >> yeah, it's pretty good now, our good friend karl rove down in austin, texas, good to see you. >> hey, karl. >> good morning, how are you. >> we're great. >> how are you. >> ainsley: i'm great, everyone says hey, but-- >> and what do you make of the jobs numbers in terms of the politics of it. we're less than 100 days down, what does it mean? >> yeah, well, it's not what people's attitudes about the economy are going to lock in. and the closer to the election, attitude. unemployment at 8.3% is not good. the question, is that all we need to know to understand how it's going to play out. the answer is no. we also need to look at not just 8.3% unemployment we need to look at gdp growth because
9:05 am
that affects how people think. the economic growth in the first and second quarters of this year is growing at annualized rate of anemic, 1.75%, and the last time unemployment was high and a president ran for reelection, 7.2% in 1984, but economic growth was 7.1%. and four times the rate of growth that we've got now, people are saying unemployment is high, but we're getting a heck of a lot better and feel better about it and gave ronald reagan a 49 state majority. >> and you're student of history like dwight eyed hour, .3% or .03%. how is the president selling it, is his narrative working for mitt romney's narrative work, be honest, president obama is still blaming the bush administration for the
9:06 am
problems, is it working? >> two-thirds believe that president obama's policies at best not helped the economy or at worst actively hurt it. by every measure his job approval on the question of the economy is really bad and cbs new york times, 39% approved. 55% disapproved. and strongly approve 11, strongly disapprove. 49. the president is not making a good economic case, what he's trying to do, he's trying to disqualify mom by saying that the rich guy doesn't pay taxes and is out of touch, but making no effort at all to justify his record in a significant way. >> and he's got senator harry reid doing this on the senate floor, unsubstantiated rumors and a phone call from a bain investor. we know he was a boxer in the past, but he's now straight up a mud wrestler. i don't know if you are as stunned as me that he is-- >> i am -- first of all, no, i'm completely stunned. first of all, he says it on the senate floor and this
9:07 am
gives him a constitutional protection against libel. why doesn't he go off the senate floor and explicitly disavow the defense of being a member of the senate and constitutional protection of the senate against libel. this is unbelievable. president-- excuse me, governor romney put at the point years of financial records including how much he paid. on the internet. and you can go to the internet and find out for the last ten years, going back to the first time he ran for governor of massachusetts since 2002. how much he's earned and how much he's paid in taxes and given away. the majority leader of the senate of the united states to go out and taye this takes on both desperation of the democrats and more important than that, the complete lack of character. the slimeball nature of the senate majority leader, harry reid should be embarrassed
9:08 am
disgusted of the greatest institution he claims to lead. >> karl, you're talking about the harry reid and mitt romney is talking about the tax returns and not talking about the economy and meanwhile, president obama can keep his hands totally clean. at the playing good cop-bad cop with david axlerod. >> no, first of all, the president gets held responsibility for the quality of this campaign and look, i agree with you, it's required a response from mitt romney, but sometimes in politics, the counter punch is stronger than the punch and also, in politics every argument generates a unt coulder argument. when harry reid goes out and slimes people like this, the ordinary american citizens you know what, that's not fair, that's bad. that's wrong and i don't see, i not only don't see the president disavowing it, see his closest political advisor joining in this shameful activity. so the president hurts himself by this. what happened to all the promises of elevating politics and president of red states and blue states.
9:09 am
this is personal, this is shameful. this is despicable. this is chicago-style thugs and they've enlisted this-- i mean, harry reid has dishonored himself. i heard a rumor, one person told me harry reid got stolen car andro drove it into a liquor store, up to him to prove it's not true. please, this is ridiculous. >> it's the irs's job to police taxes and maybe-- >> and romney straight from the white house. and a campaign is suing the state of ohio they're allowing the military to vote early. what do you make of those? >> we've always allowed the military votes to be cast and counted in a slightly different manner because we're talking about military personnel around the world and i think that this is just an attempt to try and undermine these lost passed in ohio designed to police some abuses
9:10 am
in the early voting system. i'm not certain it's anything other than a publicity stunt. if they were serious about it, they should have made the arguments and filed the lawsuit when it was months ago, not 95, 96 days. >> and why didn't they show, are they worried it's not in their favor? >> yeah, look, every bit of evidence that we have. enthusiasm among african-americans, latinos and young people, and three voting blocks very important to the democrats in 2008. that the enthusiasm for voting and voting for president obama is down. not only, particularly, among the latino community and the young people, and it's not only, we're less enthusiastic about voting, but among young people, 13% drop in the president's support among young people. they're trying to juice, energize people in the three voters blocks and this go i haves them a chance to say if you don't vote early you're going to somehow lose your vote. we saw this with attorney general holder, going to the ncaa convention and attacking the voter identification laws
9:11 am
and says if you don't show up with the voter i.d. to prove you are who you say you are, he called those a poll tax or suggesting that this was somehow some bigoted effort to restrain black voting and all that was designed to do was to energize that. >> all right. clayton, 20% tip for karl. >> clayton: yeah, i'd give him that, you earned it. >> ainsley: thank you, karl. >> have a great weekend. >> i'll be waiting for the check, clayton, waiting for the check. >> got to find the address. >> ainsley: keep on waiting, karl. >> do you have paypal? >> coming up, could the blocking of tt decision for the keystone pipeline, put a wrench into the development for up to a year. i have very well fitting dentures. i like to eat a lot of fruits. love them all. the seal i get with the super poligrip free keeps the seeds from getting up underneath. even well-fitting dentures let in food particles.

9:16 am
the pipeline and making americans pay more for gasoline. in chicago land your viewers are paying 35 cents a gallon more this week because of inadequate pipeline and refinery issues, we're going to be paying through the nose as americans for oil from wherever it comes from, if we allow this kind of a group to continue its unfettered, irresponsible attacks on responsible companies that are doing what they're supposed to do in the first place and that is protect these beatles or whatever else they have to protect. >> dave: and say that keystone pipeline had been built, would that have dropped down the price of gas domestically? >> you're talking about 800,000 new barrels a day of oil coming into the united states from our near neighbor canada. yes, more supply yields lower prices. and that's why prices are high today. not enough supply. >> canada's growing its oil resource development.
9:17 am
the u.s. stands to benefit from that increased oil production out of canada, and that could help ameliorate price rises and reduce prices. you have an administration and president who cares more about his campaign funding from environmental groups than what americans pay at the pump. and so he stopped the trans canada pipeline for now. the beatles will be taken care of. trans canada has been doing this for decades. it's not about the beatles. it's about stopping trans canada from helping the american gasoline consumer. i think the people in in country ought to wake up to the fact that these kind of one party, one shot, one trick pony interest groups are hurting the whole country. >> clayton: john, we'll leave it there. i don't know if it could be said better than that. a former ceo of shell oil and founder of citizens for energy. thanks, john, appreciate it. >> dave: think we're going to

9:23 am
myth i hear about home schooling, that kids aren't socialized. tell us what your thoughts are. >> first of all, i totally understand the socialization concern, they assume i have my daughter in a shoe box with air holes poked in and let her have a friend when she gets her aarp card. there are a bunch of answers and i'll give you the short ones. disinterested third parties have studied home schooling nigh on 30 years. home schooled children socialize with children of same age, other ages and they're typically describing themselves as happy as the average population. and whatever measure you use for socialization, each study has their own, the home schooled kids meet it and beat it. >> ainsley: what about your daughter, what is she saying about it?
9:24 am
what's her perspective? >> her perspective is that she gets to see her friends, that she would like to see certain friends more often, and she's 12. i think that's the nature of the beast. usually, when we can see a friend, it's because she's got three things that she really wants to do that afternoon and she doesn't want to give up any of them. i think that's a pretty good position to be in. >> ainsley: i don't have children-- >> and also a pretty typical position. >> ainsley: i don't have children, but i do love-- whatever is offered in your city to take advantage of when you're home schooling your children, take somebody, new york, for instance, so many museums and opportunities to take your kids and see the items on display? >> that is -- yeah, that's, that's the pull. that's the dream for the home schooler, that they can go do these things. and someone who can travel. >> ainsley: one recently told me tim tebow was home schooled and when he decided to play
9:25 am
football at a high school, his parents were able to pick a high school and that helped his future and his career. >> now, home schooling and athletes, athletics are a topic right now. there are home schoolers who are eager to play within their local school communities. they want the advantagement-- advantage. that's the next conversation, there are home schoolers who want to have a relationship with the local school. they want the student to act or the music department or after school sports or the in-school sports and i think that the home schooling community is less closed within itself and more willing to cross over and start talking to the bricks and mortar schools. >> ainsley: and i think the bottom line, every child is different and you know your child, certainly you know what's best for your child. yes, have a great weekend. >> thank you so much for having me. >> ainsley: thank you. and next on the rundown, brand new details about the president's illegal immigration policy,

9:37 am
out your old one. >> clayton: you're wondering if the water a shooting out like a car soon. >> this is not an old one, it's a new one. and pretend this is not one in the bathroom, turn off the water and there are valves underneath the sink and if you you've never looked, open up the faucet and let the water get out and if you've got one of the handles that controls the stopper, if you've never looked back here, this is going on and that's connected, this connector which looks to this pivot road and this easily comes out. screw out and snaps out and takes that kind of stuff and then remove the supply line, gets the water from the valve up to the faucet and should screw off. very easy to do and remove those and the last thing to do is remove the mounting nut. look under here, two mounting nuts actually hold the faucet to the sink and it might be the hardest part. if they've been there for a
9:38 am
while, they might be hard to get off. this is from rigid and it's the faucet installer, makes sense. allows you to get up there not having to get a wrench up in there. if you're having trouble put a penetrating oil that will loosen those, these screw off and the whole thing comes off. and we'll pretend this is the same thing, right? we're putting in a new faucet from delta, oil-rubbed bronze and notice the high arc, in the bathroom, you don't have the room to do what you do, and gives you a lot more work space. this simply goes into place where the other one was. new faucets come with these, and don't have to put silico silicone. you want to hand tighten these, and key for the faucets, don't overtighten these, if you overtighten and crack something, you're
9:39 am
probably in a bind. if you don't tighten them enough. you can tighten them more later on. and you can hand tighten them. and replace them, replace the supply lines, and-- stopper. >> connect the stopper. these can be different, but claysically -- basically like that. and you have in addition at home depot, tools for offing everything you do. and the bath aisle. >> if you're replacing the faucet because it's not working right that's fine. but if you're looking to update the look of your bathroom, this is the way to do this. this comes already put together. and you don't have to do anything, this is the chelsea, and this is the ashland, great prices, this was 129, this is $99 an incredible price. you get the cabinet and the sink. this is a value of 499 it's

conservatives when it comes hiring and papers. if they knew they were conservative, they wouldn't hire them or give them the job. and being a conservative, this isn't a respecttable position in academia. >> dave: do not apply. and the journal perspectives on psychological science, one of my favorites. one third would chris discriminate against conservative jobs candidates and more willing to discriminate against conservatives and the study the bottom of the screen, the more liberal, the higher the assumption conservatives do not sha shake hostility and revealing their political identity. so they have to hide in academia. is any of this illegal? >> no, intellectual diversity is not one of the main things that professors worry about. they worry about
9:46 am
discrimination when it comes to african-americans or latinos. but, what's very interesting about this survey is that the researchers said that usually they have to trick people into admitting that they discriminate or that they're prejudice against a certain group. these professors are open about it. yes, it's very alarming and shows that they don't see that there's anything wrong or unfair with that type of behavior. as if they literally think that conservatives are lesser beings and worthy of this discrimination. >> ainsley: what is your advice for those looking for a job at a college. keep your opinion to yourself if you're a conservative, right? >> yeah, it's something that you have to do, but there are a lot of other universities, private institutions, that are more open to conservative ideas and to having an arena of open ideas on their campus so i would say just trying to research the university to make sure that they are
9:47 am
