that was one of the most asinine things i've heard. they all clap. corporations aren't people. meanwhile, the convention made possible by corporations fork over dough, i almost lost my appetite. i got over it. but meanwhile, even france's richest citizen fighting back against class warfare. find out tonight at 8:00 p.m. on fbn. adieu! he's gone. >> eric: hello. i'm eric bolling with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city, greg. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> eric: i spent time over the weekend thinking about america. thinking about -- [ laughter ] -- what would happen if we give the community organizer four more years to transform the great country. let's do some arithmetic. bill clinton. first, main street american, 12.5 million people unemployed. we knew about that.
5:01 pm
261,000 fewer jobs under president obama. household income down. net worth, down. take a look at the obama zombies. 145,000 more federal workers under obama. listen to this one. 14.6 million more people, new people on food stamps. solyndra, fisker, blow the money. g.m. loses $49,000, loses $49,000 per volt. the uab rolls in our dough. do you see what is happening here? president obama is driving people out of the workforce and on to government assistance. methodically transforming america from innovative free market capitalism to subsidized freeloaders who would rather watch jerry springer on the couch than occupy a park or earn a living. remember the night in chicago when obama won the election? president obama will pay for my gas. he laughed then but not so funny now. greg, what is so funny, by the way? >> greg: you spent the weekend thinking about america. >> eric: i did.
5:02 pm
>> greg: that is what you do on the weekend? >> eric: i did. >> greg: i do other things. i think about america ferrara. >> bob: do you think about it in the bathroom? >> eric: no, while the debt clock -- go ahead. >> greg: you painted a egg intive picture on this. the fact is we're now back to being a world leader. we were number seven i guess in global influence. but now we're number one in food stamp production. i think, you know, you got to reshape your priorities. be happy. we're number one! we make more food stamps. >> eric: you don't think about america? >> bob: i do. i don't think about it every day, every minute of the weekends like you do, but that's fine. i was bowling the other night, i didn't think about him. >> greg: you were thinking about eric bolling. >> bob: eric is bowling with a red, white, blue ball. >> eric: i would if i had one. a friend of mine is a staunch liberal called me up and said you know what? i think i'm going to vote for romney this time. i said why? she said for years, it's
5:03 pm
obama. she said i'm worried about my husband and if he gets laid off what will happen, i'm worried about the economy. kimberly, things aren't good out there. >> kimberly: it's not good. this is not a made up situation. if you look at the cold hard facts and numbers, it's abysmal picture. people want to decide? they want to invest four more years in obama, because he will do the same thing. he didn't give solutions of how to remedy the situation or correct the problem or correct new jobs while would you bet on the same losing horse? >> eric: we didn't hear anything new over the weekend? we didn't hear it last week in the dnc. waiting for sunday show to bring up something new. >> dana: only thing i saw is the attack on medicare in florida, which was pretty gutsy and major deception. the second thing i saw was the photographs from the weekend that greg is going to talk about later on. other than that, from the democrats, the number that got to me last week on the job number was that for every net
5:04 pm
new job that was created, four people left the workforce. >> kimberly: true. >> dana: forget whoever wins in november. whoever gets this next job, this next four years are critically important. if you look at the bob woodward book that came out this weekend, lack of leadership on the democratic side from the white house, being able to persuade, pull people together, come up with a solution and find a compromise, they wanted so much to have a do-nothing congress. they got one now. they have america in a real fix. >> bob: the thing i got over this weekend, from the sunday shows was neither romney nor ryan could say one tax loophole they would close. >> dana: yes, sir. the wind tack credit in iowa. >> bob: the wind tax credit? >> dana: absolutely. big deal. that's gutsy, don't you think? >> bob: no. >> dana: really? >> eric: you know what is gutsy is for you to bring up the fact that mitt romney who was asked which tax loopholes he would cut. he said there are loopholes we will cut.
5:05 pm
not going to raise taxes on the wealthy but close the loopholes to keep revenue the same. if you ask obama, president obama what his plan for america is, the plan for jobs, he doesn't have an answer. >> bob: bills in the united states congress and -- >> greg: the employment would be worse. everybody talked about how the people are leaving the labor force, going to social security or back to school. if it had the same participation in 2009, the numbers would be at 11.4 -- yes, so in fact, his numbers are like dana wearing lifts. if you took the lifts out, it would be far smaller. >> eric: what is with the every month there is a revision? the 20,000 jobs came out of the economy from june. meanwhile, that was two months ago. here is what happened. the labor department puts up the number. it looks okay. here, but the real number is down here. they don't tell you about it. >> dana: in the bush years it was the other way. they'd be revised upward. >> eric: better.
5:06 pm
>> dana: yeah. so june would have been better than originally reported. why is it this way? why can't we get better stats on this. bob, cansky you one thing? >> bob: sure. >> dana: something paul ryan recommended in the past which i thought you would like, closing a lot of loopholes including a suggestion that the mortgage interest deduction should go away. there are things in there i think are operated toward helping the middle class and fixing the budget which were pretty bold. >> bob: it is bold. if he would say it. but romney i think, his people convinced him not to talk about it. i think it was a bold move. but listen, the other thing, when you are open here, eric, which are always enlightening to me, you suggest that the president of the united states trying to push people to a socialist state. you don't really believe that. >> eric: i honestly believe that. the more people on the doll, the more votes he gets. if you are getting free stuff, what do you do? vote to get the gravy train to stop? no, you vote to keep it
5:07 pm
coming. >> bob: in less than 60 days he'll have the last votes he will ever have. >> eric: i'm deathly afraid of what happens in the next four years if we have socialized medicine, redistribution of wealth. $81 billion in food stamps in 2019. up from 39 billion the last year. the bush administration. there is serious redistribution. >> bob: people who qualify for food stamps and they need to eat. >> greg: the other upside is he is creating job for the guy who creates food stamp card. that is a good thing. i don't think -- >> kimberly: so positive. >> greg: i don't think it's diabolical that he is creating more dependency for votes. when you come from an ideology where you believe the government can do better than the private sector and the government's responseability is to give jobs, keep unemployment down that is the consequence. democrat is the go-to solution. >> greg: it will always be this way. >> dana: also congress has a very hard time over the years in both republican and
5:08 pm
democratic administrations of ever taking anything away. they just continue to add, throw something in here. >> greg: if you keep buying dog toys, your dog eats it. >> dana: helping retail sales. >> eric: talk about gallup. gallup has a poll out today saying that president obama has a five-point lead over mitt romney. a big change from a couple of weeks ago, couple of months ago. what is going on there? >> kimberly: you just have to take a look at it, take a moment, because it does raise the question as you recall back in april, jay carney sent out a tweet essentially criticizing gallup and their methodology. and at that point, romney was five points ahead. now you see a reversal of unusual fortune in the polling. of course, there was also a lawsuit threatened by the department of justice to investigate gallup. >> bob: keep this in mind. rasmussen who tepid to lean republican also saw a big jump
5:09 pm
for barack obama. gallup, this is 3,000 surveys so the margin of error is very little. they do a daily tracking poll. the answer is very simply, which you wouldn't buy, the democratic convention did more for barack obama than the republican did for mitt romney. >> dana: i agree. if you think about it, convention bounces for incumbent in 2004 had a .6 bump, president bush did. i don't know if president obama's could last. interesting the cnn poll that just came out that had 54 approval versus 40 for independents. so that suggestsen oversampling of democrats in the overall poll. [ overtalk ] >> greg: i cannot keep up with the poll. one poll says this, one says that and i believe polls exist to keep pollsters in business, or to shape the narrative of the story. there -- they are as stable as
5:10 pm
the baldwin family. the ultimate poll is when people vote. >> bob: greg, there are certain polls that are fairly consistent pattern of being right. gallup is one of them. trust the numbers. you just face it, you just hate the poll. >> eric: over the weekend we saw paul ryan ask questions. there are so many things going on, economy, medicare, job situation. he was asked about his time in marathon. what is -- >> dana: you remember last week greg i think you did a monologue about reporters complaining about state of the campaign and how they wish to talk about something more substantive? i guess, they were trying to get out at question of character when it came to presidenpaulryan. i suppose that is what they were asking about. the question about medicare and what he would do on the program and how he would support romney. to some of the things that ryan suggested in the past are not talked about now because
5:11 pm
they're not specific. >> greg: concerning the marathon thing, guys lie about three things. the sporting achievement, they lie about their salary. >> dana: don't do it, please don't. >> bob: i was worried about that. >> greg: charity. that's it. >> bob: chastity. >> eric: coming um, what happens when you have one part biden, to one part biker chick, two parts biker dude, simmer on high heat for 30 minutes. gutfeld is next with the concoction. ♪ ♪
