>> andrea: hello, everyone. i'm andrea tantaros. this is a fox news alert. verdict has been reached in the murder trial of former chicago police officer drew peterson. jury convicted peterson of murdering his third wife kathleen savio found dead in her bathtub in 1994. he faces up to 60 years in prison. now on to the other big news tonight. sorry. sorry. go around here. reaction, eric? >> eric: so he is 58 years old and faces up to 60 years. he will be in jail for thest of his life.
5:01 pm
former life in jail, won't be pretty for him. but he was convicted he leaned to his lawyers and said god job. no emotion. >> andrea: there must be some comfort for the families that have watched -- it's not just one family. he was actually convicted of -- or accused of doing something to his fourth wife. so all the -- >> dana: she has been missing. >> andrea: right. can't find her. >> andrea: that family heart must sink a little bit because we probably think we know what the truth is here. this is a real war on women. women in relationships where men are violent. i think you are agreeing with me on this. we talked about it before. the stories crop up from time to time. it's not -- it is the one thing that women can't seem to figure out how to get out of these situations. that is where we could use more help in identifying what type of personality this is, disorder or maybe it's just
5:02 pm
violence. >> greg: i don't consider this a disorder. a remind they're evil exists and evil laughs at you if you don't take it seriously, or if you don't admit there is evil. this guy is straight out of a jim thompson novel. if you ever read "the killer inside me." terrific novels about men like to who revel in the fact that you can't identify the difference between good and evil. he takes advantage of that wherever he goes. he'll enjoy prisons. psychopaths are not unhappy which is why he must die. he should be killed. >> bob: i thought you were rushing to get to democratic national convention was worthwhile. >> i'm excited, bob. >> eric: the family without resolution is the family of the girl that is missing. she is probably dead but you
5:03 pm
hold out hope. the case was overwhelming. gave a policeman $25,000 to knock her off. i don't get it. >> bob: everybody here knows a policeman in jail, hell of a pleasant time. >> andrea: it is a devastating story. on some level, but now what i was so application, to get to. chomping at the bit. the other big news tonight, the final night of the democratic national convention. ♪ ♪ >> andrea: during the 10:00 p.m. hour, president obama will make his case to american public why he should be elect for a second term. a tumultuous week in charlotte and 24 hours ago there was a showdown on the floor of the convention over whether "god" and "jerusalem" should be part
5:04 pm
of the platform. after excellent reporting from fox news channel and other places, plus pressure from the american people democrats caved and put "god" and "jerusalem" back in the platform after initially omitting both. today, stephanie cutter, president obama's deputy campaign manager said this about his reaction. >> when he found out about these two things, they were under any circumstances, they were a mistake. he said we have to fix it. he directed his staff to fix it yesterday. >> andrea: why were god and jerusalem omitted in the first place? here is dnc chairwoman debbie waserman schultz talking to john roberts, fox news. >> was it an omission? intentional? >> it was not omission and not intentional. absolutely not. >> how did it get out then >> like i said, sometimes there are technical corrections. we have to make technical corrections to legislation on the house floor all the time. >> andrea: technical corrections. do you believe her?
5:05 pm
>> eric: very important. john roberts is doing amazing reporting. earlier i e-mailed him and e-mailed back. he said here is how it got taken from the platform. he quotes, he had a sit down with former congressman robert wexman, i'm the drafting committee member said when the plank was crafted it was written to accurately reflect the president's official policy that jerusalem is machineer of time status negotiations. so when they took it out, there was a purposeful, the intent was to take it out. debbie waserman schultz is either lying on t right there or just completely misinformed about what is going on. it's really bad what they are doing. >> greg: i have a theory, though. i believe that president obama took god out of the platform because he is dyslexic. i apologize to the disleckics but not the platform. >> andrea: he saw dog and got upset? >> andrea: took it out. >> dana: the true story how this happened will come out
5:06 pm
eventually, whether a woodward book down the line or tomorrow morning. we'll get the story how it happened. wexler is probably the key to this. he was on the platform committee. second thing is a management question. originally after this happened yesterday there was a story that came out that the white house, president obama approved the platform. then today they're like no, they hadn't seen it. you saw it or you didn't. if you didn't see it, that is not good. if you did see it and you didn't catch that -- it's not as if you removed the word "and." removing the word "god" and "jerusalem," two hot button issues. on the jerusalem point they made this bed and now they're lying in it. it's only been in the last six months they are had to answer the question over a over again. there is a reason it was taken out. we'll find out what it was eventually. >> andrea: what is the reason? is this mismanagement? we heard on the sunday show. campaign in conflict. conflicting messages about are you better off than you were four years snag now different stories on this.
5:07 pm
is a bad visual. you have the democrats divided on the floor booing down god and booing down jerusalem. >> eric: i'm not sure -- i don't think it's fair to say they were booing down god or jerusalem. >> andrea: they were. >> bob: the jerusalem piece is a complicated issue. republicans had it in their platform in bush years. president bush did the exactly the right thing. it's a complex deal. he would never recognize, nor would president obama that the final status, that is what they mean. this is a complex situation. >> eric: why is it come flex? correct me if i'm wrong. nothing complex about the republican side. mitt romney said jerusalem is the capital of israel going forward no, matter what. there is no "final status negotiations" involved. >> bob: but there will be final status negotiations. east jerusalem, question at one point there have been a lot of proposals before.
5:08 pm
and east jerusalem separated out. leaving it aside, was it handled well? no. bob wexler watch this and saw the plapping pulled out, nobody is stronger -- and he saw the plank pulled out. nobody is stronger on jerusalem than wexeler. why it was pulled out -- all in all, the things that did happen, i don't think the american people got up this morning and said gee, that horrific jerusalem/god issue is killing us. >> andrea: they are still trying to explain it. chuck schumer came out and said the president will address it tonight. he gave another excuse. he said people in the audience didn't know what they were supposedly voting on. >> dana: maybe they were booing the process they wabed to take a vote -- they wanted to take a vote. they screwed up. senator schumer yesterday on television asked about the jerusalem issue and president obama's position on it he said i don't know. this is a senator of new york. saying he doesn't know. today is a different story. he didn't say he would address
5:09 pm
the jerusalem issue. he said he would bring up israel. not a shocker. >> eric: can i point something out? the whole fire storm that surrounding them and the walk-back and platform and the questionable yea/nay vote and was it two-thirds or not stemmed from senator durbin trying to bend the fact that god and jerusalem were taken out of the platform. he defended it. bret baier held him to the fire. became a big thing. thank you, bret. thank you, john roberts, for roberting this stuff. we have kept it in the news. >> dana: democrats are lucky it was caught. and that president obama fixed it as soon as he did. say it had gone until tomorrow and they hadn't fixed it yet, they would have bigger proble problems. >> bob: you want to say something? >> greg: i want to go to boo. that is the moment the curtain was pulled back. generally when liberals speak, they put on a faux karaoke. this is when you can see the
5:10 pm
leftist backbone of the party. i don't mean bob. but you can't fault progressives who don't want god in government when they believe god is government. it's competition. competition to them. the reason why the media isn't after this, they believe it, too. having covered dnc the drug dealer getting -- >> andrea: wait i want to react. mark halperin said there is no liberal bias. they fixed it. move on. here is him explaining. >> change in the platform, i don't think it's liberal bias of the media, the story is pretty much done, because they fixed it. >> bob: let me say i got a call, rather irate call this morning from nobody. because i said on the show yesterday when the yeas and nays were called in my own convention in '84, i did not say this convention, i said in my convention we figured out ways to cut the nays down and
5:11 pm
yeas up. the inference is that is what happened. they were not going to allow it to go to a vote. it was very clear. the way you do it is you don't stammer. get somebody up there who knows what the rules are about. yep. >> andrea: let them do what they are going to do. >> eric: point to the teleprompter what the decision was going to be made, already made forward. just read the script. which he did. does anybody watching think it's close? was it two-third that said yes or no ore.? if it's even it goes to a vote. >> bob: does anybody watching think it's that important. >> andrea: good question. should republicans make it an issue? they stayed away from social issues. >> dana: i think they already had. if you are an obama supporter, blowing this off. if you're a romney supporter you are thinking mm-hmm, i told you exactly that.
5:12 pm
if you are an independent voter it might give you pause, maybe not because the word "jerusalem" or "god" but the mismanagement. >> andrea: in '72, amnesty, abortion that was his platform. now is it atheism, abortion and auto bail-out. >> greg: it shows how far they have moved away from the average american whether you believe in religion or not. it wasn't long ago their candidate criticisms americans for guns a religion. this isn't that far off. >> bob: tactically, the republicans spent too much time on this and away from the economy is a mistake. >> dana: the democrats didn't talk about the economy until bill clinton's speech last night. >> bob: for good reason. >> andrea: i think it will do some damage. coming up, bill clinton fired up the liberal follower last night in charlotte. >> i want to nominate a man who is cool on the outside.

5:18 pm
who someone who will double down on trickle down. >> eric: he tagged romney on the arithmetic and paul ryan on his brass. he don't have time to expose all the laws but here is a few. obama has not created 4.5 million jobs as president. he lost 300 ,000. he didn't save the auto industry, he bailed it out with our taxpayer money. paul ryan's plan won't bankrupt medicare, it saves it. barack obama hasn't moved people off welfare, it's driven record of americans in post officeer the i. republicans are not responsible for the debt. your pal has to be part of this. and you have the brass to call up the g.o.p. for your party failures. bob, the democratic party, and the media and the democratic party have a love affair going on with this guy. i don't get it. >> bob: first, i got to say
5:19 pm
"zombie nation" was a great line. this guy is a master at telling a story. made the base case he could for barack obama's economy. ripped apart romney and ryan economy like a stiletto. whether you like it or not, whether you want, you disagree with it t facts, this guy is powerful force in american politics. second most popular person in politics behind marble obama. masterful, masterful, masterful. >> eric: masterfully manufacturing lying -- >> andrea: we don't have enough time to refute everything he said in the speech. so bill clinton cut romney taxes when he cut captain gains tax? and he raised taxes on the middle class with the gas tax? >> bob: no, he didn't. >> andrea: he cannot have it both ways. barack obama raised -- >> greg: he has. >> andrea: that is the
5:20 pm
problem. he talked about romney not reining in spending with wall street. and a war on women and they rolled out bill clinton, somebody with civil charges brought against him and was eventually disbarred. really, i know he is an excellent speaker, bob. maybe so good he will overshadow the president. >> eric: can i ask you a question in this form. we're watching a guy who was impeached, who went up and who was accused of having sex with an intern. underage intern. accused of doing nasty things, yet the media has absolute love of watching him speak. >> greg: yeah, they carry his water. they are his own personal alhambra truck. what is not like to about him? he is actually entertaining. the problem with him, his speeches are so long, and you have to check everything fact, it's like fumigating a house. it takes days to get through his words. but there are a bigger point
5:21 pm
here. liberal and conservatives have different problems. liberals have in my opinion a lousy message but good messengers. conservatives have a great message but the messengers aren't as charismatic as clinton. the message is so good that the liberals steal the conservative message when they want to get re-elected. we have to learn from them. >> eric: i was tweeting as this was going on, my head -- it felt like my blood pressure was going to go through the roof. >> bob: that would have been terrible. >> dana: i'll give you a specific that bothered me. on the energy portion he said president obama is responsible for resurgence of the oil and gas industry in america. no, he's not. he's actually tried to stop it at every turn. it's the governors who moved things forward. america could be doing better on the path to energy independence because it would also help grow the economy. that bothered me. on healthcare, it is fantasy land to think that taking $800 billion out of medicare is not going to affect some
5:22 pm
providing. it's -- that is a fact. i am find with story telling but the speeches are boring me to tears. >> greg: it's called wine. >> bob: i had a similar reaction when i listen to paul ryan. but he gave a good speech. but listen, the fact is you say the media carries this guy around. 62% of the american people who carry him around. >> eric: now, now bob. i remember a date he was up -- in fact, he did have sex with that woman. >> bob: the american people do that. >> eric: they need to be reminded -- >> bob: they don't need to be reminded. i love this guy. >> dana: the economy stuff, go back and forth on the surpluses piece and he cut capital gains taxes, president obama decided to raise them. even president obama himself in 2010 said the worst thing we could do is raise taxes in a recession. now that is a platform. president clinton didn't talk about that. >> eric: how about when he accused the g.o.p., bme them
5:23 pm
for the massive debt. >> andrea: laughable. that was very funny. the most funny he said president obama cooperated. with who? he hasn't cooperated not just the republicans but his own party. think about what clinton got up there and did last night. he revised down success. stood in front of a crowd and basically said 4 million jobs, right? that is abysmal in any other place. and the crowd went crazy for it. he stood there and he said i did a good job and obama couldn't. he screwed him there. >> eric: trying to reach out to the right wingers in the house who wouldn't sit down and talk to him. >> dana: how about the time president obama invited paul ryan to his speech, in the front row and proceeded to insult him in front of the nation when paul ryan had to sit there and take it. that is reaching out to somebody -- >> bob: i think, look, the republicans never gave a vote to him, at all.
5:24 pm
except for the ledbetter act. >> dana: they had the congress two years. >> bob: passed a lot of bill. >> dana: not one bipartisan vote on that. >> bob: because the republican party moved so far to the right. >> greg: my last thought is be honest here. bill clinton didn't believe a single word he said. >> dana: i agree. >> eric: especially that handshake at the end. the chair of the democratic party is caught in a lie right here on fox news. >> he says he didn't say that. >> i didn't say he said that. unfortunately, that comment was reported by conservative newspaper. not surprising they would deliberately misquote me. >> eric: uh-oh, dana has the rest of the story. debbie's tall tell next on "the five." ♪ ♪
