[laughter] >> i mean, they don't have much choice. alice is on the president's benefit reduction team and this is not a plan yet, but suggests that the president makes some tough decision, doing debt reduction, including the things that
7:07 am
clayton talked about, cutting social security benefits. this is a democrat, mind you, and the key there raising the retirement age from 66 to 70, which would save this country boat loads of money needless to say. >> a little bit more about alice, she is an economist, she was the first director of the congressional budget office, she's seen as being very no nonsense so she is talking about things that as these guys have said, are just political third rails, no politician will talk about it. you have heard economists say if you want to reduce the deficit you must tackle social security and medicare because otherwise you're trimming around the margins. >> right. and we talk about the entimement, story, not entitlements, the ear marks, a percentage or two of the budget. >> a percentage or two. >> congress says if you want to do this, social security, medicare, and defense spending and you cannot keep sticking your head in the sand from this. but this is jeff hencerling from texas on the plan i would
7:08 am
just respectfully say that anyone who wants to attack alice, no plan is not a plan. you can't raise general revenues to fund it. >> it's interesting, she's not going to release her plans until after the mid terms. nobody wants-- you would alienate that huge demographic of people who rely on social security or medicare or about to retire. of a question though, raising from 56 to 70, why not 66 to 67. can we do it incremental? that's dramatic. why not incremental stuff. >> why? because they set the target here, giving the president room to compromise and pleas those lib raperalliberals, i'm to go where she wants to go, but i'll go 67. >> dave, you could be a campaign manager. >> the jerry brown campaign
7:09 am
reeling from a controversy something they didn't need. many pointing to him. a 3-1 margin of victory he could pull off in california. this week of course, famously, if you haven't been tuned into this. he was making a phone call, someone left the phone on, and as this voice mail was recorded they thought they shut the phone off. someone in the background in the brown campaign was heard saying something very inappropriate about meg whitman, a sexist slur if you will, caught on voice mail and now we're learning much more about how that unfolded this morning. >> yeah, it's very offensive. i think that we can read you an excerpt of it. here is what was said. this is what jerry brown says on the tape. do we want to put an ad out that i've been warned if i crack down on pensions i will be-- that they'll go to whit map and that's where they'll go and whitman will give em. and another male, some described as a male voice, they don't know if it's brown,
7:10 am
we'll be blank then. will cut them a deal, but i won't. she's a blank. and there's the sexist slur, well, i'm going to use that, it proves cut a secret deal-- >> who said that was it a low level staffer on the brown campaign? they never apologized for the statement and fired nobody and he didn't come out and address it and now we're learning why he may not have addressed it. sources are telling the voice who may have used the sexist slur may have been jerry brown's wife, telling us quote, the person who said that word is someone who can't be fired. again, quote, jerry's wife can't be fired. it sounded, and i heard the voice mail like a male leaning voice, but these are within the campaign saying-- >> maybe she's got a deep voice, a deep manly voice, but what's more ironic about this, the national organization of
7:11 am
women now coming out and endorsing jerry brown and also meg whitman's camp responding to all of this saying meg whitman is a pro choice women ranked among the most accomplished in business, now running to become the first woman governor in california's history on the same day that it's reported that jerry brown's camp calls her a blank, the national organization of women endorses him. it's official now is a partisan organization. >> this is a word that has a hateful tinge to it. it takes a lot to use this word. jerry brown called it, we used a little bit of salty language. it's a sexist slur with a mean spirited undertone to it. and it's about women. you only use this about women. >> i'm asking you, is it different if it's a woman who used it? >> i'll tell you certainly different if it's a man. more sexist if a man used that
7:12 am
word. >> yes, here is what i think is interesting. it's different if a woman used it which is convenient they say the one woman who might be on the campaign or in the room might have used. that's why i don't think it's necessarily been proven to be true. >> fascinating. you know, the october surprises keep unfolding and hem out there with a comfortable lead and this happens. and e-mail us what you think about all of this, >> democrats crying foul, that republicans are outspending them, leading into the mid term elections. >> like this have outspent democratic groups by 7-1. >> did the president forget about the 250 million dollars dems are supposed to get from unions and liberal groups. >> our political panel next. >> and when should you get a mammogram. it's hard to know and we have an expert on to debunk the
7:13 am
myths. a car that drives itself. >> it's about time. >> it's not a science fiction story, in fact, it's really happening. we're going to explain coming up. you're looking at one of them right there. ♪ so you think your kids are getting enough vegetables? yeah, maybe not. v8 v-fusion juice gives them a full serving of vegetables plus a full serving of fruit. but it just tastes like fruit. v8. what's your number?

7:16 am
>> democrats recently playing the cash poor card. claiming that the g.o.p. is outspending them dramatically on mid term elections and the president himself had this to say on thursday. >> there was a recent report in recent weeks, comfort groups like this have outspent democratic groups by 7-1. >>, but what about the 250 million dollars democrats are getting from unions and labor groups? let's ask our political panel this morning, doug shone, a former pollster for president clinton, from business news and world report and angela mcglowan. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> rick, let me start with you, $250 million from unions and from labor groups, liberal groups, rather. how is the president out there using this strawman, that the big, bad, conservative outside
7:17 am
groups are going to control this election. is that fair? >> probably not. i don't buy any of these figures. i think that both parties are going to end up with way more money we're hearing from either side mainly because of the third part from the citizen united thing and it's apparent that the third party ad we've seen an explosion in these things this year and this is raising the ante for both parties and i don't think we're ever going to get a good accounting from either party. >> it's clear that's the tone, what they want to tell the democrats, they've got to come out and beat the big conservative groups, is that accurate. >> it's not accurate. obama and dems are bamboozling voters. you've got to put your money out on the vote. >> trying to energy. >> energy the base. >> and it's surprising to find out the democrat have jut spent the republicans, in the
7:18 am
house races. did the supreme court ruling that changed the game mrelically. did it level the plagying field. >> i think it's tilted. >> towards whom. >> towards the republicans because the third party groups like americans for prosperity, don't know what they're spending, we don't know who is spending them, are putting in hundreds of thousands, if not millions into the races and they really don't count in numbers that the president was citing or you're citing and these are the impacts of the citizen's united groups in ways hard to fathom. >> are you suggesting what the president is saying is in the accurate on the stump. >> there's a lot more than the numbers for unions and party committees. >> angela is locked and loaded here. you have the a fchlt lchfaflcio money into the ewilkeses, i think it's kind of leveled the plague field, look at
7:19 am >> if the democrats had similar organizations and this year the energy and enthusiasm and most of all the money. >> regardless where the money is, it's a great year to run against rich contributors, whether it's wall street bankers or anyplace else, we've got more class warfare going on this year than a long team and that's-- >> that's what the democrats are using, by saying-- >> that's the message. the rich republicans are outspending us. >> angela, it's probably going to work. >> not sure. >> next with our panel. president obama has blamed the bush administration for many of his problems, who will he blame when he runs again in 2012. does he need republicans to take back congress to get reelected? and we told you about this yesterday, the idea that for marriages to work, men need to hang on to that man chair. we asked us to send you your man chair photos and did you ever. we'll show you our faefrts coming up. wake up, morris:

7:23 am
>> does the president actually need to lose the house in order to get reelected in 2012. some say losing the house would be the best for the campaign strategy and others say he's a lock no matter what. doug shone, we've talked about this for months now. the theory goes, if the president loses the house then he can go a little towards the center, make everybody happy and get reelected. do you buy the theory he needs to lose dfrjts i think it h.
7:24 am
>> i think it would be if he loses the senate, too. attack politics, if the republicans don't control the congress, he has a less credible argument to make and his argument's more likely to fall on deaf ears. >> i disaagree, he can't go on the attack anymore, people want solutions and tired of blaming, he blames bush, blames the republicans in congress, but they've had both houses and the white house and he can't blame-- i think he has to move to the center like clinton and play that card. >> and move to the center, but so far there's no evidence he's going to do that. there is none. >> there's arnold schwarzenegger saying he thinks the president will get reelected in 2012, part of that he might not have a primary challenger and that's a huge factor. when we look at this, another theory goes like this, r i can, if the republicans take the house and perhaps the senate they go so far right they lose the center and lose hispanics and president gets them in 2012. what do you think of that? >> these are political calculations and the biggest factor in 2012 will be the
7:25 am
economy. unemployment over 10%, and if it's back to 9% by 2012, obama will be lucky. tell me the last time the president got reelected with unemployment at 9%? and it's going to be there, we don't know what's going to happen. and bottom line though, the republicans, we do know, move too far to the right, did in the mid 90's, that he's done now. started to is the theory. >> and that's what obama is hoping for, a republican opposition he can treat like a pinata. >> and the card is going to be hillary as the vp running mate, replaces biden. then i think that's going to be-- >> of' heard that float around and if you want some precedent. the way it's looked the last crucial mid terms, ronald reagan approval rating of 42%, he lost 28 seats. president clinton had approval rating of 46, he lost 53. where does the president go?
7:26 am
well approval rating of 45%, rick, how many seats does he lose? the republicans need 39 net to went the house, do the republicans take the house? do they have a shot at the senate? >> it seems likely they will take the house and he will have at least that as a foil, enough to gum up congress and create the gridlock that doug is saying will work in his favor. >> i worry about gridlock, we need conciliation. >> sometimes gridlock can be damaging. >> democrat, republicans-- it doesn't matter. >> and the high 50's republicans are going to gain the house and gain the senate, too, people are tired and they want change. >> you're sitting the bar awfully high. nancy pelosi telling the times that she will be majority leader with the democrats and he think we agree it's about jobs, the economy matters. doug shone, rick newman and angela mcglowan, thank you for
7:27 am

7:31 am
story just because it's so outrageous. well, we have to tell you that this morning, authorities have, do say that they have officially suspects, pedro saldiva and brother. >> part of a drug gack, they were sightseeing the same town, the drug pirates out on the water and last night geraldo rivera had a talk with tiffany hartley and she stands by with what happened because as aly pointed out there's a question how it unfolded. >> is there anything you would like to do to amend the story you've told so far? >> i stand on what i've told you, everything i've said is 110% true. there's nothing nothing else hiding from there. i have spoken the truth and i am holding, i mean, i can't tell anybody else what else happened because i am telling
7:32 am
everything i can. >> yeah, a lot of people were skeptical of her story, but i think we're coming around now that mexican officials are waking up to the reality, all right, it may have in fact been the drug cartel that was behind this. and i think people were suspicious of the mexican officials because we know they fear the drug cartels, who own that country, and including a lot of elected officials and police. >> and also tiffany said they weren't searching for his body and the body and jet ski were not found, why. >> the u.s. can't look for it in mexican tire tri. >> and from u.s. pressure why they made the arrests and had the two suspects this morning. >> in an unprecedented move, north korea is allowing western media into the country for what appears to be a coming out party for heir apparent. >> and joining us from kim

amendment right to wear a cross to school. this started about ten days ago when there was an announcement over the loudspeaker at school that if you're wearing religious jewelry, either take it off or tuck it in because people are being offended. canen, our client, he wears a small cross to school because he's a christian and he immediately took his cross off and didn't wear it for a few days because he doesn't want to get into trouble at school. he's just there to learn and study not to cause any problems. the school then modified its position a little bit and said, you have to tuck in it cross if you're wearing a rosary because that's offending catholics if you wear it. regardless of that, they're still telling students they need to tuck the cross into the shirt or not wear it at all. that's unconstitutional on behalf of the school. >> the school in a statement, the actual district spokeswoman doesn't mention anything about it being offensive, but what she does say, stems short of was a precursor to the policy, was
7:49 am
that certain gang members had adopted crosses and rosaries as their gang symbols. so basically they're trying to cut down on violent behavior and intimidation, is that fair? >> that's the position they've taken. they've sent the statement home to the parents saying they cannot wear rosaries and the cross because it offends catholics and then changed the position they're only concerned about gang symbols, therefore you cannot wear a rosary and that also is an unconstitutional position. at the american center for law and justice we're represented a family in new york, whose student was suspended indefinitely because see was wearing the rosary for religious reasons. the judge entered an injunction and the school changed the policy. every time those policies come up for review before judges they're found to be unconstitutional because they're always vague, because they're saying if the school deems it a gang symbol, you can't wear it and it's always the rosary and again, always
7:50 am
the cross on the rosary that people ultimately find offensive and that is wrong. >> ed white, you're the attorney for the student. keep us posted. let us know what happens. >> i sure will, thank you for having me on your show. >> thank you. coming up on the show, there's a lot of confusing information out there about breast cancer. should you get mammograms at 40 or 50? is there something you can do to lower your risk entirely? we have an expert to debunk all the myths next. look at all this stuff for coffee. oh there's tons. french presses, espresso tampers, filters. it can get really complicated. not nearly as complicated as shipping it, though. i mean shipping is a hassle.
7:51 am
not with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service. if it fits it ships anywhere in the country for a low at rate. that is easy. best news i've heard all day! i'm soooo amped! i mean not amped. excited. well, sort of amped. really kind of in between. have you ever thought about decaf? do you think that would help? yeah. priority mail flat rate shipping starts at just $4.90, only from the postal service. a simpler way to ship.

>> statistics study new researching guidelines. women are bombarded with information about breast cancer and it can often be conflicting, confusing and it can inspire more fear in all of us, than understanding. so here to bust some of the biggest myths about breast cancer, is health writer dina
7:54 am
rossport, the are the acle your breasts are not a ticking time bomb is in glamour magazine and facing the breast cancer gene and making life's changing decisions. thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> a great title of an article it says your breasts are not a ticking time bomb and frankly so many of us think they are. and we hear the statistics and think at some point we are going to get breast cancer. >> for high risk women they think they're ticking time bombs, for the average woman, the truth is they aren't. >> let's go through the myths and think it will help women this morning. >> number one, breast cancer is striking more women at a younger age. it seems like we hear more and more women in the 20's and 30's wrestling with this. >> yes, i think that young women, you know, people think that young women are diagnosed because there's so much more awareness these days, however that's not the case surprisingly. the rate of breast cancer among young women has remained the same for nearly 25 years
7:55 am
and the death rate is actually decreased. however, young women can be diagnosed with breast cancer, so, and when they do a tends to be more aggressive so it's important that women see their doctors if they notice any changes in their breasts. >> next myth. we're helpless, there's nothing a woman can do to lower her risks, we are sort of sitting ducks for breast cancer. >> that's not true. we've heard to eat well, to exercise, to limit alcohol, however, the number one thing that young women can do to protect herself is know her family's medical history on her mother's side and father's side. if she notices clusters of cancer, notices any male breast cancer, ovarian cancer, that can be a sign she's at risk and if she is, however, the truth is, even high risk women who have options which is my book is all about. >> and the next myth is scary for young women, but i know many people believe this, a breast cancer diagnosis means chemo of course and
7:56 am
infertility. . >> that again is not necessarily the case, in teams of chemo, some women catch cancer so early they don't know chemo. >> they can have a lumpectomy-- >> or radiation, depends on the diagnosis. and even women who do have chemo, the treatments have gotten so much better and we've made progress in that area so women can still be relatively normal lives, take care of their children and go to work and in terms of fertility, the-- >> i hear there are lots of advances, freeze eggs. the last myth i want to get to. mammograms are just for older women and we've heard so much conflicting information about what age. >> yes, there has been a lot of information, last year, advisors group came on and said women should start getting mammograms at 50 instead of 40, however, the national cancer institute and national cancer society still recommend welcome get
7:57 am
mammograms at 40. it's the truth is, it's the best screening tool we have and save lives. >> your book busts the myths as we say, no pun intended. thank you for coming on. >> thank you very much for having me. >> cop coming up what you may not know about president obama's new national security advisor, aduring the housing boom, is tom donlan the best choice for the job? we'll debate. and trying to get more access to private information on the internet. should the government be able to read your e-mail? we report, you decide.

jersey shore, thank you for watching "fox & friends." >> you can't hear the fist pump, but that's what is there. >> that's what snooki was doing off the air. that's dave briggs, al sen camerota and i'm clayton morris and coming up on the show we're talking women and moms speaking badly or poorly or harshly to daughters and speak more harshly to daughters than they do to young boys, do you buy this? >> yeah, we'll share with you the evidence. >> it will be a good one to ask about this. >> i know, embarrassed about it. >> and checking your tweets throughout the show as well. >> what's happening this afternoon, well, president obama will be travelling to pennsylvania, clayton's home state, as he hopes to reignite democratic enthusiasm at another rally. just 23 days before the mid term elections. >> hi, yeah, we're down to the final weeks and democrats, president's party needs to whip up enthusiasm for the crucial mid terms or risk
8:02 am
losing control of the house and senate. that's the bottom line. that's where president obama comes in today is the second of four big campaign rallies, headlining president obama, like the one in madison, last month. you see the crowd about 17,000 people showed up. the idea is to try to relight the fire that got president obama elected. transferred to dems on november 2nd. joining the president today in philly will be vice-president joe biden, a rare onto appearance by them. they have some work to do. a new poll out by "the washington post" and harvard university highlights the challenge and it finds tea party supporters and conservative voters, the most energized for the mid terms with just 22% of democrats saying they're evening interested in this election and get this, only 17% of liberal democrats saying they're interested. so, those are the folks the president will be talking to today in philly. back to you guys. >> thanks so much, julie. yeah, and it's interesting that he's going to philadelphia because needing
8:03 am
some support and this is a very targeted moment for president obama to be there in philadelphia. >> yeah, if there's a focus it's on enthusiasm right now. how energized are the parties? and while "the washington post," together with harvard university took a look and what they found was 43% of democrats are interested in the elections 23 days away. how about republicans, 57%, so it keeps going up. when you get the tea party folks, they are 74%, say they are very interested. and enthused for the upcoming mid term elections so that line keeps going up and democrats are on the very low end right now of energy. >> you want to see some enthusiasm. >> here was the tea party convention, this is day two of the tea party convention in virginia. just take a look at some of the enthusiasm there. >> ♪ >> eisenhower warned us, he says watch out. if you're not careful, the
8:04 am
industrial complex will eat our lunch and that's what they're doing today. you want to know why at the heart of things, the tea party is here and people are rising up across america, it's not because of the size of government, it's not because of big spending, those are symptoms of this basic problem and the basic problem is that we no longer respect and we no longer trust you in washington d.c. >> our founders did not throw off the british monarchy to reinstitute it on the north banks of the potomac. we're a unique people. we're not just an extension of europe or some other part of the world. we're cream of the crop of those civilizations, the people that had the vigor and vitality to come to america, came here for the freedom. thank you virginia. woo! love you! >> that's the tea party message the past two days in virginia. and the enthusiasm gap we talked so much about, people
8:05 am
credit the tea party with boosting the republican enthusiasm and you can see how energized they were there. who would they say really personifies the tea party best? well, they held this poll over the weekend, of who they like to see run for president. very interesting. >> yeah, to say the least. who would you think would be on top. at the top, would be sarah palin. not so fast, look who is above sarah palin, new jersey governor chris christie, the tough talking new jersey governor, not afraid to slash this, slash that, take on everyone. he was at the top of that straw poll. >> ron paul on the list, newt gingrich and jim demint rounding out the top five. it's interesting though, because unwith of the chief criticisms of president obama a few years ago was his experience level and chris christie has been a governor since january. that's it. so-- not only that. >> and they love what he's doing right now with the pensions, talking tough, talking honest. but experience was the chief criticism. >> well, i do have bad news
8:06 am
for them, also, he has sat right here, dave, where you're sitting and i interviewed him and i asked him twice and he unequivocally said no, i'm not going it run, i'm not ever going to run. no wiggle room. so they may want him to run for president in 2012, but he has said no thus far. >> let us know what you think. did you go to any of the tea party rallies? >> and if all goes well emotional reunions between the 33 trapped miners and their families could begin as early as wednesday. a video inspection of the rescue shaft gave workers confidence in the tunnel's stability and the miners will be hoisted to the surface one at a time in capsules, slidely wider than a man's shoulders. look how happy they were. >> and just when you thought voters did not have enough to be upset about. more than 58 million social security recipients will

8:11 am
they can investigate a possible planned attack that's happening. so, i mean, they would say, investigators need all of this, as we know, terrorists do use the internet to plan things, however, privacy experts do not like this at all. >> and i think-- go ahead read my e-mails if it's in the name of national security. if it's the name of keeping me and my family and all of you safe. go ahead, read my e-mails about innocuous details of our day. >> and i asked judge andrew napolitano about this. >> he doesn't like it. >> he doesn't like it at all. he says that the legislation they're trying to push through, unconstitutional, forces companies like blackberry, twitter, google and others to force to open up things and privacy things if they don't want to. >> might help catch a future faisal shahzad, and these are things you have to weigh. >>, but the judge would say i've heard him a million times, this is the slippery slope, you're willing to have them read your e-mail and open your mail, can they come over

8:16 am
>> good morning, bret. >> let's ask you about that. you're speaking with debby wa wasserman schultz, democrats are on the march, but the new york times saying not so fast. >> not just the new york times, the nonpartisan handicapping organization is looking at all of these races across the country. and just friday they moved 12inp to lean republican and republican from tossup down in new orleans. he's the sole hope, really, of, or one of the only hopes of democrats to pick off a republican incumbent. but, political reporters are well respected and moving the other way and we're going to ask debby wasserman schultz about the enthusiasm gap and her depiction of it as we're just 23 days from a big mid term election.
8:17 am
>> and bret, it's not just congressman debby wasserman schultz who is feeling bullish, house speaker nancy pelosi, is sure she will maintain her position, so are they reading different numbers or just optimistic talk? >> part of it, alisyn, is optimistic spin, trying to fire up the base, trying to get folks out to the polls because the key thing is the ground game for both parties to be able to get your folks out to vote, and with the thought of republicans and the enthusiasm on the republican side, really, going to be a wave. the question is whether it will be a ripple or a tsunami and democrats are trying to, trying to stoke their partisan base to see if they can get them out. >> according to harvard, the enthusiasm gap right now is 57% for republicans, 43% for democrats and the tea party off the charts. i want to ask you, you also have eric cantor on today's show.

i would have to say "the net" is one of the early geek classic nerd movies. >> and i think you've gotten your answer, bret. >> a whole new show, bret, siskel and ebert. >> it wasn't a good movie, but it was classic. >> nice to see you this morning and check your listings for fox news sunday and check it on hulu if you don't have a dvr handy. >> and plugging in a whole new way. >> "the net". >> we'll be watching, bret, thanks so much. >> coming up president obama's new advisor was a fannie mae executive during the housing boom. the white house seems to be keeping silent about it. is tom donlan the best choice to help with security. >> and uncle sam has banned texting and talking while driving and now they want to ban hands-free, too. is the federal government going too far? we'll debate it. ♪

8:24 am
the phone and a recording. there actually were salacious sexist remarks said and left on the phone by someone in the room by the brown campaign. we're learning though this morning about who that person may be that said the salacious things about meg whitman. >> let's read to you what went down on the conversation they thought it was not being recorded. do we want to put an ad out. that i have been warned if i crack down on pension that i will be-- that they'll go to whitman and that's where they'll go because they know what whitman will give em. it goes on to say, it will be expletive then back to brown. we'll cut them a deal, but i won't and here is the key, some voice in the background, we thought it sounded a bit male, called meg whitman a very salacious, sexist term and you can probably figure out what it is there if you don't already know and then brown says, well, i'm going to
8:25 am
use that, it proves cut a secret deal to protect the tensions. now, mr. brown has not come out and taken this on head on and his people touted his record working with people in the past, but he has not directly apologized for this. >> no, he hasn't apologized. >> why? >> what he did say, look, this is a private conversation among campaign aides, and salty language. that goes beyond salty language, and that's a sexist slur, they said something about how you feel about women, if you use this term. now, what's very interesting today is that now, the national organization for women, has come out and endorsed jerry brown. so they are overlooking this is okay to say even if you're in private, that this is a term that you'd call your opponent now isn't apparently bothered by that. >> and meg whitman camp is not
8:26 am
happy. meg is pro choice woman ranked among the most accomplished in business now running to be the first woman california governor in campaign history and called her a blank, the national organization for women now endorses him. now, n-o-w-is a partisan organization, and who that voice is and why the jerry brown camp is so quiet on it we may now know. it may be, the source of the brown campaign says the voice of jerry brown's wife. this is a quote from a source close to mr. brown. the person who said that word is someone who can't be fired, jerry's wife can't be fired. alisyn, i asked you earlier, does it change the debate if a woman said this sexist remark about another woman? you said yes, it does and therefore, we take the mex leap, might this be intentional that they're floating that it could be his
8:27 am
wife? >> i think it's all a little too convenient. it's too convenient the one woman they could pin this on is his wife. so she can't be fired and coming from a woman, yes, amongst the club, you can perhaps say it with a little bit less i don't know, insulting manner, but-- a lot of people, lots of people thought it was a male voice. people who heard the tape thought it was a male voice so now it seems very convenient that they've figured out let's actually say that it's jerry brown's wife. we don't know, we don't know, we may never know. >> yeah. >> but, still, i think that the irony is the now endorsement. meg whitman is a woman. a strong woman, a role model for women, but now would endorse her opponent after this sexist slur came out. >> let us know what you think about this, it's election season if you couldn't tell. coming up on the show, north korea is opening up and giving us a firsthand look inside

8:41 am
everin, and chip merlin, nice to see you on the show. >> thanks for having me. >> and critics saying the government here is overreaching, going too far. you heard the transportation secretary there saying that, banning all cell phones in cars, is this a good idea? >> your thoughts. >> yes, i think it is, just like drunk driving. this is an impairment within your brain and if we want to protect those on the roads, which it is our duty, then we need to ban all cell phone use by drivers of vehicles. >> what about personal responsibility, jennifer? >> well, personal responsibility, i think, can only go so far with this. this is a really compelling and addictive activity and just like drunk driving we needed laws in order to protect people just like seat belt i mean, this is something that we're addicted to the technologies now and in order to protect the others on the road. >> right. >> we need to have a law for this. >> and jennifer said, impairment, we need the
8:42 am
government to step in and doo this because it's an addiction, what are your thoughts? >> well, this is just another big government ploy to keep a lot of business people from going out and doing business. the truth is, the statistics show that in those states that ban cell phone use there's been no impact whatsoever with respect to the crashing, fatalities, whatsoever. >> but chip-- >> it's j us not there. >> when we see the bans and most of the bans have been withholding the phone up to your head, right and they have the hands-free laws they thought would reduce the crashes. we know a lot of scientists saying that this does not work, even hands-free, chip, it's still a distraction. >> oh, there are plenty of distractions that we have. if you're a parent and you have children crying or fighting in the back seat. that's a distraction. if you spill food or drink on you while you're driving, that's a distraction, a radio is too loud. those are all distractions, but the truth is, this particular distraction does not have any impact with respect to our driving in terms of fatalities or
8:43 am
crashes, those are what the studies have shown. jennifer, do you buy that? >> no, i don't. my mother is gone because of a cell phone conversation, thousands of other families have lost loved ones due to cell phone conversations. this is, the studies that he's citing that those bans don't work, that is because there's been no enforcement of those laws in those states. i've worked with the highway patrol offices in many of the states and they say they do not enforce them and we know with laws there is no enforcement, there is no compliance. we enforce the laws, we have strict laws, this is something where we're protecting the other people on the road not js ourselves. >> chip, your-- >> and i speak to families every day that lost loved ones. >> lost loved ones and that we need to enforce the laws, chip. your final thoughts? >> there's no problem with respect to banning texting and things like that, but this is a very productive device. the most business people and people out there nongovernmental workers need so we can get our business done. >> an interesting debate.

people doing two hour commutes and getting work done on the roads as the suburbs increase. this debate will continue and we'll see if this legislation goes through. jennifer smith and chip merlin, we appreciate you joining us. coming up on the show, democrats promise to fix the trillion dollar deficit. turns out that plan could include raising the retirement age and tapping into social security. you heard me right. democrats plan. details at the top of the hour. guess who was at a top executive-- guess who was a top executive at fannie mae during the big housing boom? president obama's new national security advisor. is he really the best choice for the job? we'll have a closer look at tom donlan's resume' next.

8:49 am
why shouldn't we be talking about this? your thoughts? >> well, he wasn't, he wasn't the head of fannie mae, but he was a senior vice-president and what he did essentially was, he lobbied for less strict control, he is very much a political player as opposed to a national security player and interestingly, when the handicapping was going on, for who was going to replace rahm emanuel as chief of staff, the most highly political job, tom donlan was at the top of that police. >> what's interesting about the whole process, the fact he's now at the helm of the national security team, he had managed to avoid senate confirmation and many people, critics arguing if he in fact had to go through senate confirmation, all of this fannie mae stuff would have been laid out on the table and likely he would not have been
8:50 am
confirmed. >> yes, because the national security advisor job is a white house job, aen what got it into my mind, because i had covered the clinton administration and written a book about it, and i thought to myself, boy, tom donilon and president obama are very lucky that this job does not require senate confirmation, it doesn't mean that he's not qualified. he's one of these guys who works 20 hour days, whose life is his job, who knows a lot about national security. he's quite qualified, but he looks at things from a political perspective, so. >> yeah. >> on the subject of afghanistan he says we can't engage in a-- >> interesting stuff and we'll see if the public will sink their teeth on this or involved in other issues. >> we appreciate you joining us and braving the marathon. you can check out her writing

8:55 am
is there a case there? >> absolutely. what we have now is the fair debt collectors practices act and congress passed a law because people are being harassed on a regular basis and with the economy the way it is now, you have certain rights. if someone is harassing you, the thing to do is to send them a cease and desist letter thes they cannot cal you before eight in the morning or after nine at night. they can't call your relatives, friends, if they humiliate you, curse at you abuse you, you have a right to state in federal court you get a thousand dollars every time they do this. but the first thing do a cease and desist letter. >> and maybe with the money. >> pay the underlying debt. >> my sister was a debt collector for her job and said this guy is completely justified. the only party we can discuss debt with is spouse after confirmation of marriage and certainly not the parents. >> you can't call anyone else to embarrass them. there are cases where they called the neighbor, brothers,

"fox & friends" begins, right now.

9:02 am
>> clayton: is she a democrat. >> julie: >> dave: and a well respected one, you thought the liberals were mad about losing the public option thing, wait until she unvei unveils, it will be strongly recommended to the president, we don't know where he'll go with this and, again, the plan to reduce the deficit involves those things and could be one or the other or both. but, raising the retirement age, four years, is dramatic and, as alisyn and i talked about earlier it might be a target to put on the wall, so the president can reduce that, maybe to 67, 68. to try to please some of those who would be furious about the prospect. >> clayton: it is interesting and ironic, republicans have talked about it, the third rail of politics an george w. bush learned it after winning re-election, he was hammered and couldn't get through you the reform and jim hensarling said this about the mysterious plan, i would respectfully say to anyone who wants to attack alice
9:03 am
rivlin or anyone who is talk about this, no plan is not a plan, you cannot raid general revenues to fund it. >> alisyn: i think he's referring to people going around the margins and edges and doing, you know, tackling things like earmarks, or federal waste, all valid things, obviously, to tackle and should be, however, to -- if you really want to talk about billions of dollars, worth of deficit reduction, you must talk about social security and even raising the retirement age. but, again, i don't understand and perhaps an economist can explain, why couldn't it be raised to 70, the life expectancy is above that, raise to it 67, so -- or 68, so it is is not a huge shock to the system, haven't we learned. >> dave: which is most likely. >> alisyn: that would be more palatable, we learned with health care reform people like incremental change more than
9:04 am
wholesale. >> dave: that is something that would come down dramatically once it was unveiled after the midterms and we are 23 days away from those midterms around where does the enthusiasm lie, with a couple of weeks left? it is clear, it favors the republicans, and even more so, the tea party, 43% of democrats, a recent study found, are energized about the upcoming midterm elections and 57%, quite a bit higher, republicans are interested and look at the tea party, 74%. of those people are very interested, enthused about these upcoming elections and that is key, right now, democrats are not where they usually are for midterms, republicans and tea party off the charts. >> clayton: and down in virginia, of course, they have the tea party convention, two days worth of speakers and music, and standing ovations, for a lot of the tea party speakers and this is a little bit of a montage put together of the highlights, over the past two days. take a look. ♪ ♪ i'm gonna need it fast...

9:17 am
their lowest price -- lowest paid workers, and part-time workers. i mean, it is a jaw-dropping admission by the administration, that you know, that this idea that you can just mandate companies and in this case, a labor union, raise the premiums they pay on their employees, that that is just not going to, you know, solve it. there are far more complicated problems than just, you know, just mcdonald's and the uft not paying enough money in coverage of their employees. >> dave: they get a year to essentially figure this out, the implication being that this is kind of return for this enormous teachers union support, how else can the white house explain this? >> oh, i would love to hear them genuinely explain it and genuinely address that very question about the enormous support the uft and teachers unions gave president obama and democrats in congress.

but, the really terrifying thing here, is when you -- think of all of the less politically savvy companies out there, all of the companies that don't have these sort of, you know... this quid pro quo that goes on between the obama administration and, you know, the teachers union, they don't even know what boys to hit them and when it does hit them come of the it will be a -- i mean, next year, in january, when it does hit these companies, you will -- i think you will see a lot of people who wind up without health care coverage. and, it is going to be a real disaster. >> dave: small businesses, what about the little guy. >> alisyn: charles hurt, "new york post" columnist, thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> dave: the most segregated places in america, are they our own churches, the result of surprising research, father jonathan morris on deck, in the man-chair! our on-deck circle, he's next. >> alisyn: he is playing.

an explosion on the upper deck, engulfed the vessel and forced the evacuation of 250 people aboard, 28 of them suffered injuries. guys? >> clayton: thank you. >> alisyn: 9 out of 10 congregations in the u.s. are segregated. meaning a single racial group accounts for more than 80% of the membership and it makes churches the most segregated places in america. >> clayton: why are they so divided. let's bring in fox news contributor father john morris. nice to see you this morning. we know there are predominantly black and white churches in the country, is it a problem and is it true, people join churches or congregations that are synonymous with their culture? >> that is a great point, it is tape call move and bad reporting in this case to take something that could be fine, or even good, and paint it as bad. for example, walking to a science classroom, guess what?
9:24 am
they are all scientists, you know, or even from an ethnic or culture point of view, when immigrants came over to the u.s., for example in the catholic church, they had polish andy italian churches. as long as in those churches they are not saying, hey, whites can't enter, blacks cannot enter, italians can't enter, it is fine people come together and adversity is a wonderful thing but it's not an absolute value. just because a group is homogeneous doesn't mean that is a bad or racist group. >> alisyn: can we chalk it up to neighborhoods, the fact you go to your neighborhood church. >> that is part of it. and i think we have to be very careful not to just get ourselves into a group that looks like us and not be open to other but the reporting in this case is saying, going to church is the most segregationalist element of our lives, today. as if that is a bad thing. i think that is -- really kind of low. >> clayton: there's a poll out about how americans see god.

>> it is fascinating. >> clayton: this is how americans see god according to the poll. authoritative, 28 thousands, benevolent, 22%, critical god and distant god, bringing up the rear, is that overly -- >> very simplistic and they put it out, done by somebody else, and, here's an example. authoritative god, whose god is that, the examples, it was sarah palin and glenn beck's god, god was going to judge us, as a country if we don't do something, and you know who the benevolent god was, president obama's god, help your brother. i think, it is a skewed way of saying, either god isvolent or distant or critical and god is more than one thing and, as we can look in the scriptures, god is love and sometimes, love means also punishing, also holding accountable for... i think again, bad reporting, religion is easy to report on badly.
9:26 am
>> alisyn: isn't it worrisome if you believe a shred of the survey, only one of those is really positive or love as you would say, the benevolent god and the others are god seeming critical. >> you know what? the study grouped people's opinions of god into these four categories and the problem was, the categories that this study chose, because you can have a god of love, who also punishes. right? a just god. in other words, if i decide i'm going to live my life, however i want, and, do terrible things to all sorts of people, well, god can't say, hey, you are okay. great, wonderful, do whatever you want and, that is night god of the bible. >> clayton: isn't this a reflect, maybe of 2010? we're moving perhaps away from doctrine specifically and more about' personalized relationship with god? doesn't fit into any of these molds. >> that is what the study was going towards, saying, this is bad, because people see god as
9:27 am
distant or critical or benevolent or authoritative but, you know what? i think we can see that god is bigger than any label we give him. >> clayton: we are humans and love to put labels on everything. >> and i think it was just -- an example of bad reporting. >> alisyn: jonathan morris, thanks for coming in and giving us the perspective. >> clayton: we're sorry we had to kick you out of the recliner and dave is clamoring to get back in. >> he's in there now. >> dave: i'm soon headed back to the man chair, guys, first, let's tell you what is coming up on the show. president obama hoping to get support for democrats, at a big rally, today, in pennsylvania. with millions of americans out of work, what will he need to say to get the votes? and devastating floods wrecked the grand ole opry and this weekend it is back and celebrating the 85th birthday with country artists like dolly

9:51 am
to disclose the inner demons she was battling, dr. keith ablow joins me to take a closer look at the mind of marilyn monroe. good morning, dr. ablow. >> good morning. >> alisyn: let's get to some of these poems. and, notes and these i should say were found in the closet of lee strassberg, who was famously her acting coach and they were discovered and let's read them and you can analyze them for us. here's the first one. she says: working, doing my tasks, i have set for myself, on the stage, i will not be punished for it or be chipped, or be threatened, or not be loved, or sent to hell to burn with bad people feeling i am also bad. what do you make of that? >> look, that was written in response to some extent, the memories of her great aunt ida who was apparently not a nice person and some of those negative comments are about the interactions she had with the great aunt and what you see is a woman of real in sight and she
9:52 am
understands that she uses acting as a defense, as an escape that on stage, she's safe. where in life, she was unsafe, even as a child. >> alisyn: here's another within i want to read for you and for the viewers, and this is more bleak and came, i think at the end of her marriage to arthur miller as it was crumbling and she says, help, help, help. i feel like coming closer. when all i want is to die. >> look, you know, we have the portrait merging here. you might have lawsuit of her as just pretty, or just sexy or just a ditz. no, very deep. she actually speaks psychologically very clearly. after she's gone back to l.a. to film "some like it hot" her marriage crumbled to arthur miller, she says, poetically, i want to die and yet life this, demons of mine are coming closer. that ills the razor's edge on which a lot of people dance and my truth is coming closer and
9:53 am
makes me want to escape. >> alisyn: now we're so much more psychologically sophisticated, at least we like to think so, in 1962, in today's terms, how would you diagnose marilyn? >> i'd say that she is certainly -- sounds as though she may have been suffering with a depression and i didn't evaluate her, of course. i was born in 1961, so that would be tough... but the bottom line is, look, i wonder about her depression and would say, i would hesitate to give her a label and would want to see her as a person and what she is describing is her attempt to distance herself from her suffering, as a young person and young woman, thinking i'm unloveable when the truth is, yes, you are loveable and these were people who were limited around you. and, ultimately, faith could have saved her. if she could have known intrinsically, she was a valuable, worthwhile person, in the face of god, that she would have been able, perhaps, to overcome this. >> alisyn: and, doctor, if these
9:54 am
writing had come to lighted, sooner, while she was alive, do you think they would have made a difference? >> i think to the stents that she may or may not have shared this with a very good psychiatrist, and, of course she was in psychoanalysis and i hope it was a talented person. every bit, every scrap of truth someone can bring to a counselor can make the difference. i have had patients tell me one thing, that one person told them 15 years before, made the difference between them taking their lives and not taking their lives. and that is how powerful we are, in the lives of one another, but we need the data to act on. >> alisyn: if only, she's a compelling figure and, of course the new book about her inner psyche is fascinating. thanks for coming in and sharing your in sight. >> thank you. >> alisyn: coming up, a shocking number of american babies have an on-line profile before they are even born.
