video. >> we will see how much pride played a role in that. >> we have live military personnel to talk about who would have been in the situation room who would be receiving a live feed from the drone. why the drone was even in the area. whether we had aircraft and assets that were available to move in on this 8 hour firefight and who told them to stand down. >> meanwhile judge we look forward to seeing you over the weekend. if you are on the case we know we will get answers. a classic children's halloween special now under attack? >> it is so embarrassing to have to ask for something extra for that block headline news. >> apparently charlie brown and his friends are too mean. we asked the one and only sharon osbourne what she has to say about this? she is going to be on live with us. baby love in 1964 by the

5:01 am
reading? i'm stunned. that's geraldo taking my cold open spotlight. >> meat loaf is all in and wait until you hear why. ""fox & friends"" starts now. >> good morning, everyone. >> it's a friday. big news, we know the whole country is looking at this, our top story tracking hurricane sandy. take a look at what sandy is doing in ft. lauderdale. along a-1-a. waves there expected to reach ten feet in ft. lauderdale. after she tears through florida and up the coast, sandy could form into a monster perfect storm in the northeast. janice, i see one of the headlines on drudge and bloomberg this morning, worst storm in 100 years seen for the northeastern united states. >> it's very possible.
5:02 am
as you mentioned, we're going to be dealing with tropical storm that hooks up with an arctic cold front. you're going to have a tropical system hurricane inside of a nor'easter. a super storm, if you will, so, yes, 100-year storm? i believe it. if the current track comes true. and i worry about geraldo. geraldo has a boat, so he needs to secure that boat. people need to be taking precautions. i gave my husband a honey-do list. generators, batteries, cell phone chargers, we need all of that to come together this weekend if you live anywhere from the delmarva towards maine, know what your evacuation route is. here's your future radar as we head into saturday and sunday, part of storm coming onshore but the worst is going to come at the beginning of the work week. there is that front that is going to merge up with this storm and bring it back into the northeast coastline. the track, still 80 miles
5:03 am
per hour hurricane. as we head into monday, tuesday, overnight tuesday making landfall. i don't want you to pay attention to the center of the storm because we're going to feel tropical storm force winds 300 miles from the center of the storm. it's going to bat ter the coastline and some of the computer models slow this storm down for days. not only are we going to see battering winds, waves and rain, it's going to last, going to be relentless. we could have power outages, millions without power for days, maybe even weeks. that's the bad news unfortunately. >> we were just discussing with geraldo, geraldo was saying how do you vote? if you're a candidate, how do you get out the vote? all everyone is going to be talking about is their own protection, their own safety. we're going to for the first time in a year and a half not be talking about the general election days before the general election. >> right now there's early voting in a number of states. if the storm becomes
5:04 am
gigantic, a lot of people are probably going to be doing like janice is having her husband dedicate themselves to the honey-do list. voting is going to be the last thing they'll think about. there is a possibility, according to one news source, second storm expected to push across the midwest and mid-atlantic on election day itself. so everyone should vote now if they can. >> in the meantime we've got to get you ready for headlines. a mother returns home to find her two young children murdered by the nanny. >> [inaudible] enters the bathroom and finds her six-year-old daughter and two-year-old son stabbed to death in the tub. >> a doctor returned to her manhattan apartment. she had her three-year-old daughter with her. after her nanny didn't show up for swimming lessons with the other two children, she found her

5:07 am
loaf? >> it's god's will. >> i kind of figured that. >> let's talk about libya. >> that perfect storm, my dock on the hudson river, 14 feet above mean high water. clearly this could be exceeded by the storm. on hurricane irene we were washed. i'm worried. >> you've got to get out of there. >> last time i took voyageer to poughkeepsie. the political ramifications are intriguing. the president is going to have to be on the job, not going to be able to be in the swing states. mitt romney can't campaign in california or wherever he intends to be. everyone has to pay attention to this thing. thousands of lives, the most densely populated part of united states. >> he can't go to florida but he can go to ohio and virginia. >> if he's in d.c. to start with, there's not getting
5:08 am
out. >> where are you going to fly air force one? >> i'm not sure about the p.r. message campaigning if people perish. let's go to the libya story. many people criticized the president for going off and campaigning. now we're learning more from these e-mails, geraldo. we had representative mike kelly on the show, and here is what he said this morning. >> we had people in washington watching this in realtime. these people are there doing their best job to do what they need to do to protect our people there. and they're asking for help, and they're not getting it. and we have people watching it in realtime. these are the same people that can describe in great detail watching the take-down of bin laden in realtime but they cannot describe what they watched in realtime, the attack in benghazi. we knew what happened with bin laden but we refuse to
5:09 am
admit what happened in benghazi. >> geraldo, i've heard some of our people there who were protecting the staff there, they were calling for send in a gunship. we need a gunship. >> i don't know that to be true. and i don't believe this congressman ever served in the military. the reason i say that is this is preposterous this notion that the pentagon was watching this in realtime. >> the state department was monitoring in realtime. >> they may have been monitoring phone calls, audio, but these drones did not get overhead until two and a half hours after the attack began. people, stop. stop this with this notion of live tv and why didn't we respond. it is not what happened. the first drone gets there two and a half hours after the attack. then it is replaced by a second unarmed drone that came some four hours after the attack. that was it. we scrambled our rapid response team based in europe. they got to sicily, still almost 500 miles from
5:10 am
libya, hours after. we all know general hamm. he had the striker brigade in mosul, iraq. general hamm and general dempsey were both of the opinion we don't send more americans into harm's way until we know what is going on. i think we have to stop this politicizing -- >> nobody is saying the pentagon wasn't ready. >> we're getting away from the real issue which is why wasn't there security before this happened. that's the issue. but these preposterous allegations, reckless allegations that somebody, they paint the picture, some fed bureaucrat watching tv. you heard -- >> someone told me yesterday -- >> i think that is beyond the -- >> senator mccain said if you send an f-16, which he knows firsthand, he says they do it all the time. when they feel like they're losing control of people on the ground, they send an
5:11 am
f-16 and # 0% of the time -- and 90% of the time they clear it out. >> remember the conflicting cables. they say we're under attack, our people are under attack and our people are missing. that's 4 something. at 6 something they say the attack is over. they gave false -- incorrect information. you don't know where are you going to send in. what they see is flames there. we have to concentrate on what is real. what is real is that we had an absolute intelligence failure. we didn't have security at that embassy or consolate. and we have to also ask the question of whether or not congress was willing to give the additional fund to the state department to beef up security. >> they used supplemental funds to hire the blue mountain group. they could have used that same money. they could find money. even that charlene woman said -- >> yesterday i interviewed senator barraso, stphof inhofe and -- senator
5:12 am
inhofe and senator crocker, three republican senators who sit on the senate foreign relations committee, they agree the super charged atmosphere around this story, prudence dictates these hearings be postponed whrmine what happened. in this climate now where you have darrell issa -- >> we don't have that kind of time. let's say you were in the state department and you say okay, in a month we'll find out how to be safe. what about tomorrow? >> do we want to try to influence the election with a tragedy that happened in north africa? this whole story about the drones -- >> we should know the drones weren't overhead in real time watching these people being murdered. >> don't you think the american people need to know the answers of what happened there before they vote? >> gretchen action i -- gretchen, i believe based on the lack of security, based on sending susan rice to the talk show circuit
5:13 am
days later to give a, voluntarily big and misleading explanation of what -- complete explanation of what happened, let them vote on that stuff. but in terms of what the military could have done -- >> you are an investigative reporter and you have the story moving because our great reporters are getting sources and more information. should we stop that until november -- >> our probing is different than the senate hearing where i think grand standing plays a part. let us probe. let us get these facts, the fact a drone only came two and a half hours later -- >> as an american -- >> somebody knows the answer. i think people know enough to effect their vote. >> geraldo, always a pleasure. >> ozzie osbourne was on my devil worship show back in -- >> i'm sure. >> president obama won virginia in 2008 but now

>> president obama is now on a six-day tour. it was going to be a 12-state tour but he saw the price of gas so they cut it back to six states. >> brand-new fox polls show president obama falling behind in virginia, a key swing state that he won in 2008. here with that information and other polls in the battle ground states to tell us about this race is the chairman of the virginia victory effort in 2012. good morning, pete. what's going on in virginia? why the change? >> major momentum for governor romney and paul ryan and also george allen. we're the number-one battle ground since the state in the country for the white house but we have the number-one senate race. and all of our candidates are showing major momentum out there. if you look at the polls right now for president, every single one of them public and private for the
5:18 am
past four weeks have shown mitt romney, governor romney, and congressman ryan ahead. you see george allen hopping ahead as well. >> he's going up against tim kaine, a popular virginian there. let's look at this poll. this is economy and jobs. back to the presidential race, who would do a better job based on the economy? in september obama-biden with 49%. now romney-ryan is 50% and obama-biden 44%. what's changed? was it the first debate that people saw mitt romney in a different light? >> seismic shift. it was that first debate. for the first time ever 80 million americans got to see governor romney without the filter of the liberal media going toe to toe with barack obama. they heard his plan for energy independence, which is important in virginia, especially in coal country and in hampton rhodes. they heard his plan for a
5:19 am
stronger military. they don't want the military debt decimated especially the navy which has so many jobs in virginia. they heard the number-one issue in virginia, men, women, african-americans, latinos, the economy and jobs. they saw president obama for the first time in months without a teleprompter and without a plan. that was a game changer. >> both candidates weighing heavily on the women. choice for president among women likely voters, obama-biden down to 49% what's up with american women? >> obama has been cratering, cratering on the economy and the military, both of which play in a major way in virginia among men and women. this is a pocketbook and wallet election, and that's the number-one driver. that's why our governor,
5:20 am
bob mcdonnell has been so successful in virginia. he has approval ratings soaring through the roof. governor allen is picking up major traction on tim kaine because he's for energy independence, for a stronger military and also against the tax increases that tim kaine tried to, when he was governor of virginia, he tried to push through the largest tax increase in the history of the commonwealth. didn't even get a single democratic vote out of his own party. amazing. >> pete snider, a lot of information in the state of virginia, one of the very important swing states. thanks so much for your time. next on the rundown, the president using a swear word to describe mitt romney? is that really becoming of the office?

president of the united states actually calls mitt romney -- well, a word, i'll abbreviate. b-s'er. >> they have been calling romney a liar, tax evadeer. the real question to the american people is who's bs'ing who? we're used to tough language in american politics. it's part of our history. this president and his folks have brought it even lower. i'm not going to get on a high horse and say i never said that word. we've all said that word. does that word show up on employment evaluations? does it show up in discourse between people? that's a fighting word. if i say steve doocy,
5:26 am
you're a b-s artist, you might want to knock me down. that's absolutely wrong. when you say that about someone, who are you disrespecting? the american people. >> and you're did the respecting the office of the -- and you're disrespecting the office of the president. >> you're saying american people, i don't think you're too smart. i think that's the kind of language that most americans engage in. and it's really not. that's not the discourse that they want. the romney kpafrp -- the romney camp is upset about it but it's a bigger issue in terms of american culture and american politics. but it's been part and parcel of the obama campaign from the beginning. the american people have to make a choice. >> when george w. bush was in office, he was caught -- it was an off-mic thing where he and tony blair were talking and he used the s word. it was not intended for anybody here, just between
5:27 am
two world leaders. the left-wing media absolutely exploded. there was a lot of outrage. instead in this case the obama camp is embracing this and they say the whole thing raises trust issues. they're not backing away from it. >> you watch these shows that some folks allegedly get their news from, comedy channels. so it resorts to the lowest brow, lowest common denominator, tough, bad words. if we want to dismiss each other with bad words, what's next? fists? swords? clubs? it's a new ethic in american politics and american culture. and i don't think it should be part of presidential election. decisions are going to be made about who's b-sing whom? we've talked about it on this network and i've talked about it. who's b-sing whom on libya?

the mayor of detroit who is also one of the 50 greatest players in n.b.a. history, if his tigers can get off the mat, will there be a game five monday morning. mayor, good morning to you. >> good morning. good morning. it's a series, so it's not a game. and that's a good thing. it's going to be a seven-game series. early on i thought five or six. now that we're 0 and 2, we've got to win the three at home. >> the bats are obviously the big surprise to you. you know sports playing seven all-star seasons with the pistons. one of the 50 great players in n.b.a. history. what's happening to the squad? >> i have to give credit to san francisco. they've got good pitching. they've do the very well. our guys have got to wake up. our big bats are not hitting right now. we can't continue to do that. i don't want to put a lot of pressure on the guys, but they got to get ready. they got to hit the ball. >> miguel cabrera, triple crown winner, he has one
5:40 am
hit and prince fielder also has one hit. you have a bet with the san francisco mayor, instead of food or alcohol, you bet a day day of community service with youth programs in the opposing cities. i love the quote you had, talking a little friendly trash. you said -- quote -- "as for the hair of san francisco, he's going -- as for the mayor of san francisco, he's going to have to leave his heart in san francisco. if he brings it here, we're going to have to step on it." do you want to amend it? >> no. i have faith in our organization the tiger players are going to come through. i'm feeling good about them. >> i've got to ask you about michigan politics. the detroit free press endorsed mitt romney despite his opposition to the auto bailout. also the polls appear to be tied according to fox news. does mitt romney have a chance a week from tuesday? >> he has a chance, but i'm a supporter of obama, and i'm hoping that people will come out and vote. that's going to be the key. people can't just sit back and think things are going to be okay. they've got to get out and
5:41 am
vote. >> they've got to support your tigers who are down two games to love. game three tomorrow night on the fox broadcast network at 8:00 eastern time. back to you guys in new york. >> tell the mayor we don't feel bad for him because the yankees haven't gotten a hit in like five months and that could happen at the hand of his tigers. that mayor has done a great job. thanks. look forward to your coverage. the country is inching closer to going over the fiscal cliff. with election day a few days away, which candidate will help us avoid which a cliff. charles payne breaks it down for us. >> joe biden campaigning in a city where the largest employer just announced major layoffs. >> good news: home sales are up. that's certainly good news. and the most expensive home for sale in the country right now? the white house. that's right, the white

>> quick headlines. vice president joe biden campaigning in a couple of hours in objector korb, wisconsin. talk about bad timing, the city's largest employer, objector korb defense, announced they will lay off 450 workers in january because of -- quote -- "difficult decisions" because of the looming defense budget cuts. it turns out yawning isn't only contagious among people. a new study says when your dog sees you yawn, he returns the favor. researchers say it's actually because dogs empathize with their owners. as for cats, you know, cats don't care. brian? >> a fox business alert. the government releasing its third quarter g.d.p. numbers. our country's economy grew at 2%. that's up from 1.3%.
5:46 am
the rate for the second quarter, by the way, which ended up being revised downward. the second quarter was. what does this mean to you? what does it mean to our economy? charles payne looks at this. they predicted 1.9. it shows we're moving in the right direction, charles? >> i'm sort of tired of that comment moving in the right direction. i think the bigger question, to be honest, is are we living up to our potential and the answer is absolutely not. 2% growth is ridiculous, anemic. what we've seen with the stock market getting hammered is we can no longer celebrate or look past mediocrity. we've been able to do it as a country. with the stock market, we can't do it longer. this number might be revised. ultimately it could be significantly number because all these numbers have been revised lower. with the u.s. economy growing at perhaps less than 2%, it's not where we should be. supposedly at this stage of the game in a
5:47 am
post-recession period. >> there was a theory that recovery was going to go on turbo speed. like we dropped, we were supposed to recover that way and that has not happened. the other thing is the fiscal cliff. we hear about it, we debate about it. but i did not know how much it's affecting business. the looming fiscal cliff has business spooked. how? >> it involves a whole bunch of tax hikes. it involves the economy taking a hit. it certainly involves a recession which would be -- you can't have this type of anemic growth and take a punch to the gut like that. businesses obviously have to protect themselves, and they're doing the smart thing. and at some point we have to sort of make this move if we could. it's election season and all that kind of jazz, but it's a shame. because we saw what happened, you know, not too long ago when we had this sort of uncertainty in washington. >> and this is what people are afraid of. if the taxes go up and the cuts go together, it could cost 6 million jobs through
5:48 am
2014 and send unemployment rate over 10% to around 12%. >> and to be honest with you, it's already around 11.5%. you're absolutely right. a week or two ago the president drew a line in the sand. he said there is no way in the world he will sign anything regarding the fiscal cliff if it involves an extension of the already in place taxes for people who are rich or supposedly rich, because i don't consider $200,000 a year rich. >> if you look at romney and what he wants to donned and the president, who would be better? >> romney would be for many reasons. for the main reason is if he wins he'll have a mandate by the american public that they made their mind up in the last 30 or 40 days that this is they we wa. fiscal discipline and tough choices. >>imus: charles -- >> charles payne, thanks for coming in. mayor la guardia changed the face of a city crippled by debt and unemployment. sound familiar? now his story is taking

5:53 am
and now his story is taking center age. the beloved mayor, the subject of a play called "the little flower. "the star of the show actor tony lobianco is here live. >> what made this character so compelling for you? >> right now he's what is needed. he was the mayor of america actually, and all he believed and what he did, he took over the city when things were a shambles. he brought -- in six months he brought the budget back into line, something we need desperately. he took on all things that are wrong today. that's why i'm doing the show, because it's parallel to all our problems today. we deal with unemployment, we deal with the school system and terrible things going on in our school system. the inflation, everything you can think of, juvenile delinquency i deal with in the show. i keep updating the show so it's very relevant to what's going on in this day and age. >> the little flower comes
5:54 am
from the name fiorello. new yorkers love him. they named half the town after him after he died. >> he was loved. he took on everybody. when he came into office, when he came to congress -- he was a seven-term congressman, when he ran for that office, the democratic party controlled for 136 years in that district. the democrats never lost a race, and then he came in, lost the first one and then won the second one by 357 votes. then as mayor, he was just tough. you know what he said -- and i wish a candidate would say this -- "if i don't live up to my campaign promises, i want me to throw me the hell out of office." you say that and the people understand. >> everybody would vote for that -- >> of course. of course. look what we have here now.
5:55 am
broken promises, you know, people not following through. you say what you say. >> i'm interested in the parallel from that time period to present day. you're playing this role. what do you see and how do we fix the problem? >> it's all in the play. i address everything that's in the play in terms of -- >> give an example. >> he says, is gasoline too high? he says you want it to come down? okay. it is food too high? you want it to come down? stop buying it. stop making yourself a victim. you are in control. every monday we don't buy gas, every tuesday we don't buy meat and if one day is not enough, what about -- he's funny, wonderful character. now you get the idea why rudy giuliani liked him so
5:56 am
much and looked up to him. rudy and ed koch, they all had pictures of him over their desk. >> now they have you. >> tony, can you stick around? >> i can indeed. as a matter of fact, i have a surprise for you for the after-show. >> is it money? >> better. >> are you going to name an airport after us? two minutes. ford c-max hybrid. when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid.
