9:02 am
requirement to build an oil pipeline between canada and texas if this issue regarding the payroll tax doesn't get resolved democrats say they won't pass a new spending bill needed to prevent a government shut down. government runs out of money friday at midnight if nothing is done. iowa caucuses are now less than 3 weeks away former house speaker newt gingrich appears to be in a commanding lead according to the newest gallup poll. they lead president obama in 12 potentially decisive swing states. romney is trying to define gingrich as an unworthy member. tomorrow, 9:00 p.m. on fox news you can see the republican debate, from iowa, and this morning the moderator and anchor of special reports, fred bare joins us from sioux
9:03 am
city thanks for being with us. >> good morning. >> good morning. newt gingrich the man to beat, concerns, they remain what some call his lack of discipline, what does he have to do to show otherwise and how do you thing the other candidates might try to capitalize on that perception >> i think this will be a big moment for the race we have seen each of these debates have an impact on this race but this debate in particular is the last debate in which candidates will be on stage together before the iowa caucuses january 3rd. the last time they will kind of have to make their mark. newt gingrich has been very effective in these debates and formats but he will probably come under fire i would guess from other candidates on the stage. >> he is a matserful debater that is one of his -- masterful debater that is one of his stronger points, newt refused to go in the ads. >> it is a smart move to talk
9:04 am
about that, but tough to not respond to attacks in a negative way we saw him do it the other day about governor romney. i think it will be tough the big story here in iowa really is congressman ron paul he is surging in recent days a poll out yesterday, maureen had him back 1 percentage point. i was going to say, iowa is big and ron paul's strategy, campaign strategy overall and he has been surging the poll did you see his dark horse situation coming up where ron paul becomes the front runner after the debate tomorrow night. >> there is not a dark horse scenario he has been up here in iowa at the top of the polls for awhile and he has the best organization on the ground he could win iowa and most analysts will tell you that is a good thing for romney down the road in a long term strategy to be able to win the republican nomination a lot can change and the biggest thing we
9:05 am
are seeing in polls in recent days, two thirds of iowa caucus goers say they have not yet decided and will likely decide within the 7 to 10 days before january 3rd. that makes thursday a really big thing if people have questions they want to send in, suggested questions, tweet, go to twitter at brett bare. i want to get this in real quick mitt romney, and that wager, betting $10,000 how can he get past this tomorrow night. >> a lot of democrats will use that in ads down the road as far as this news cycle, don't know if the $10,000 thing will come up, as far as being a big factor, it might come up in what candidates -- other candidates mention on the stage they will want to make points against romney. moderating the debate
9:06 am
tomorrow night thank you so much abegan we want to remind people that debate is 9:00 p.m. tomorrow night on fox news, the fox news channel. viewers are urged, brett told you to suggest debate questions via twitter here is his twitter handle. so we've got that 9:00 p.m. tomorrow night thank you so much, brett for joining us tonight, this morning via satellite. >> moving on, donald trump will no longer moderate a debate for the republican presidential hopeful he gave up after only two candidates agreed to the event. they said they would show up but republican strategists feared it would be more like a trump centered circus. trump who said he would not run for president now says he wants to preserve his right to run as an independent. another big story we are following this morning federal regulators pushing state lawmakers across the country to

ban cell phone use by drivers entirely. stacy cohen has details now. ntsb, federal agency responsible for investigating some of the most cataclysmic collisions that happen in this country in trains with aircraft and now they are recommending, a drop in all cell phone use while driving. according to ntsb it is simply dangerous whether you are texting, e-mailing speaking on a hands free device, at least 1 in 100 of us are texting while driving the agency is recommending a total ban. they are not completely focused even though you know where you are going you are still driving. >> it is a great temptation, when you get a message you want to respond to it i try very hard not to although i wonder what is the alternative do you pull off somewhere. >> do you think it is a good
9:08 am
idea? >> absolutely. >> why? >> i feel like it is really dangerous. >> really dangerous. but i did see you talking on it. >> that last woman is not alone being some body we have seen someone drive up here talking on the phone interestingly although everyone we spoke with agreed using a cell phone while driving is dangerous everyone admitted to having done it at least once themselves as well. thanks stacy. ctia the group representing the wireless industry released a statement on the ntsb recommendation the president and ceo says the wireless industry agrees safety should be number one priority but believe it is decision should be left up to state and local lawmakers. protestors worldwide who changed the face of history in 2011 are given a big acknowledgement time magazine named the protestors the person of the year. times cites the arab spring protest as well as the occupy movement here in the u.s.

9:11 am
hey, jessica, jerry neumann with a policy question. jerry, how are you doing?
9:12 am
fine, i just got a little fender bender. oh, jerry, i'm so sorry. i would love to help but remember, you dropped us last month. yeah, you know it's funny. it only took 15 minutes to sign up for that new auto insurance company but it's taken a lot longer to hear back. is your car up a pole again? [ crying ] i miss you, jessica! jerry, are you crying? no, i just, i bit my tongue. [ male announcer ] get to a better state. state farm.
9:13 am
penn state child sex abuse scandal shifts the focus on two university administrators, they will be in court friday, charges of purgery and failure to report under the child protective services law. yesterday, jerry sandusky waived his right to a preliminary hearing it was in part to avoid testimony from
9:14 am
some-his alleged victims, jacob pringle, of a pa firm, will join us now to talk about the latest in the case. please give us the name of the firm please. i should have trusted myself on that one. it is good to see you. we are talking about the fact that even this waived preliminary hearing is becoming news. i think media was set to report on something and then almost immediately, jacob sandusky's attorney waived his right or used his right to waive his hearing. that was the expectation more in public and media, with all the anticipation there was going to be the opportunity to hear from the victims. typically it is not until trial you have the opportunity to do so. i appreciate the way the criminal process is structured
9:15 am
within pennsylvania, no matter where you are, the grand jury itself is a confidential proceeding. so all we and the public have been able to do so far is read what the victims have said, and what the graduate assistants have said to the grand jury, that then is presented to the court as a presentment, is what they call it for the court, ultimately to allow charges to go forward. so here there was an expectation well in advance of an ultimate trial if in fact there will be a trial, granted they are saying they will fight this case to actually hear what the victims themselves will say. any time you are talking about a storied athletic program, this case, penn state. >> perhaps one of the most stories. >> absolutely. >> coaches with reputations, at least in the athletic world, have considerable stature, when you have that level of a fall from grace, everybody wants to hear what accusers have to say.
9:16 am
>> right would that be then the primary reason why joseph would have waived this, sandusky's lawyer, because they did not want to hear right now from witnesses or victims. >> they knew from the grand jury what they were going to say. i think there was a lot of strategy involved here one consideration when going to fight the case, speaking of someone having been a prosecutor now a defense lawyer when you have a high profile case you are concerned about a fair jury fair trial. with all the national trappings local excitement over interest in this case, to have the victims speak publicly, that in and of itself is attention grabbing they know what the witnesses are going to say i think there was a certain amount of mind games played here. put all of these potential victims and witnesses in that stress you may now have to tell your story it is not even going
9:17 am
to count yet. i think that came into play. >> we might be talking, strategy, sort of crazy like a fodon't understand or follow what his lawyer might be doing here including, letting sandusky speak earlier i think that shocked a lot of people. might in all be strategy jacob. some times lawyers, in cases such as this, someone who has a profile, do have trouble controlling their clients it is very important, that clients or that those accused, not speak unless they are very calculated statements. i know it is on a completely different note but what we were talking about before, ultimate lesson in how do you carefully prepare from making a public statement. we are seeing that on capital hill nothing to do with this case. >> but words are important. >> right about how do you speak as you indicated before, those
9:18 am
who did speak to the grand jury, two other penn state officials, their preliminary hearing is scheduled friday where the issue is did they report and did they lie to the grand jury. what people say when you are talking about criminal accusations is very much, central to prosecution, and the ability to impeach witnesses. >> we will definitely be talking more about that we will have you back in studio to get details straight in this attention grabbing case thank you. maureen back to you. >> thank you alison. deadly attack on a crowd of holiday shoppers just one of the big stories making headlines this morning. >> former illinois governor rob blagojevich has more time before he has to report to prison. more on that on the other side of the break. >> annie yu is hanging out with a unique team in college park annie. >> maureen we will find out more about these competitions
9:19 am
