just the clothes on her back today, wednesday, august 3rd, 2011. captions paid for by nbc-universal television and good morning. welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> i'm ann curry. perhaps no surprise that the president is moving to quickly put the debt showdown behind him by returning to the campaign trail. >> however, it appears investors are not all that excited with the deal that was reached. after months of heated debate. the dow dropped 266 points on tuesday. that's its largest drop in the string of eight straight days of decline. we'll have more on the law's impact on washington and wall street coming up straight ahead. also this morning, disturbing new videotape recorded by phillip garrido and his wife as they lured a young

girl into their van. it was made two years after the kidnapping of jaycee dugard. also ahead, a controversial new way that some young women are paying off their college debts. coming up, one coed who turned to the internet to find herself a so-called sugar daddy. we'll talk more about that. >> especially in these economic times. also, after attending another lavish royal wedding, kate is seen once again, this time doing her own grocery shopping. coming up, how her frugal touch is already rubbing off on the rest of the royal family. here she's even carrying her own bags. other big names stopping by today, from ryan reynolds to jason bateman, ricky gervais and tony bennett. >> a girl's dream. what's next for president obama and lawmakers on capitol hill now that the debt showdown is over. chuck todd is nbc's chief white house correspondent. chuck, good morning to you.
7:03 am
>> reporter: good morning, matt. after a month-long break the president returns to the campaign trail tonight with a birthday fund raiser in chicago, trying to put behind him this debt ceiling debate which turned into yet for him another contentious confrontation with congress. >> voters may have chosen divided government, but they sure didn't vote for dysfunctional government. >> reporter: trying to put himself on the side of frustrated americans, the president didn't claim credit for the $2.5 trillion deficit reduction deal that he signed quickly into law in private tuesday. he simply changed the subject. >> they want us to solve problems. they want us to get this economy growing and adding jobs. and while deficit reduction is part of that agenda, it is not the whole agenda. >> reporter: the debt ceiling debate played out at a time when there are warning signs of a fragile economic recovery may be stalling. employment is down, unemployment rate at a painful 9.2%. the nation's economic growth rate has been revised downward for the rest of the year. and many of the world's
7:04 am
economies are struggling as well. on tuesday, the white house released a series of photos showing the president meeting with white house officials and congressional leaders. for the past month, washington has been at a stand still as the only issue on the agenda has been the debt ceiling. >> the ayes are 74, nays, 26. >> reporter: despite a large bipartisan majority supporting the deal, nobody liked it. >> i will support this legislation but with very serious reservations. >> i reluctantly cannot support it. >> to say that the legislation before us is not ideal is truly an understatement. >> this is not the best possible bill, but it's the best bill possible. >> with a heavy heart, there are parts of it that i will struggle to explain and defend. >> almost everything else about this deal stinks, and it stinks to high heaven. >> reporter: and it was equally hard to figure out if the president or congress comes out a winner or a loser. >> the president was mugged.
7:05 am
and when you survive a mugging, you don't talk about what happened to the president. you say, hey, we survived. >> he has now a clear path to january 2013 where you don't have to deal with this issue anymore. in that regard, he was a winner. >> if you want to pick one, i think congress looked far worse than the president did. >> reporter: well, august is going to be about the white house and the president trying to repair his image. in one critical part of the country, the midwest, he plans a mid-month tour, a bus tour of the midwest, probably hitting states like iowa, wisconsin, ohio, michigan, places where his approval rating has really gone down. >> chuck todd, thank you for your reporting from the white house this morning. jim cramer is the host of cnbc's "mad money." good morning. >> good morning. >> the markets are rattled for not having a deal, a long wait, but on the day the deal was signed, the markets still plunged 2%. >> yes. >> why is wall street not happy with this deal? >> recession. all people can talk about is the whole slowdown that washington
7:06 am
triggered, manufacturing crisis that the president mentioned has made it so that all business has slowed down. jobless, probably not going to be so great. sales, bad. we're hearing company after company saying washington created a huge mess. not going away. >> to what degree did the spending cuts call for in this bill have an influence in this recession? >> a trillion dollars lost in the stock market. much of the loss is associated with companies that were doing well because of government -- some people call it handouts, i would call it spending. i think that is a huge part of the decline. suddenly realize big sugar daddy is gone away. >> you mentioned jobs. one group, liberal leaning economic policy says the economy could lose 1.8 million in the next year due to the cuts. is that too much? >> too dark. i think we're going to muddle through here. that would be a setback to the 2008-2009 great recession. not going to happen. way too doom and gloom. >> you did mention the jobs numbers. they were not good in june. new numbers come out for july. this coming friday. prediction?
7:07 am
>> july is a really tough month in this country. i don't see a lot of people getting hired. i saw a lot of layoffs. it won't be disastrous. nothing is disastrous. it's just not so hot. >> manufacturing production barely grew in july. consumer spending dropped in june for the first time in almost two years. economic growth for the first half of the year at its slowest pace since the recession ended. are we now starting to see the outline of a new recession? >> yes. plain and simple. if things don't pick up, they're trending down. this is, again, not a mass unemployment about to occur, not something i would describe as being catastrophic but we're slipping back. unless we see some job growth in the near future, we're not going to be back to where we were a couple of years ago but we're going to be down. >> do you see anything that's going to create this -- some job growth that you just talked about? >> that's the problem, i don't. i don't have a catalyst. i never come on this show and say, look, the world is coming to an end. it isn't this time. but i don't have anything good to tell you.
7:08 am
i don't see any reason to hire because there is so much new regulation, so many difficulties coming from washington. our trade partners are not doing well, either, china, russia, india, brazil. all raising rates. and europe is just terrible. >> in this season we talked about earlier, earlier this year the double dip concern, is that what we're talking about? is this the double dip? >> double dip implies one dip is worse or equal to the other. this dip, and we are having one, is not going to be what i would regard as being nearly as horrible as what we had. >> jim cramer, thank you. i appreciate your perspective. we need good news. >> i'm trying. looking for it everywhere. >> you can catch "mad money" week nights at 6:00, 11:00 p.m. eastern time on cnbc. now a check of the other top stories from natalie morales. hey, natalie. good morning. >> good morning to you, ann. good morning, everyone. in his first public appearance since the uprising, hosni mubarak appeared in a cairo court today on a stretcher and behind a cage. nbc's martin fletcher is in cairo with more.
7:09 am
martin? >> reporter: natalie, it's almost unbelievable. a dramatic historic day here. after 30 years of total power, hosni mubarak, 83 years old, wheeled into the courtroom on a stretcher, checked inside a metal cage with his two sons who also, by the way, are accused of corruption with him. mubarak didn't seem frail despite his lawyer's claims he was too weak to stand trial. the charges, corruption and the ordering of killing of protesters, 860 killed by security forces in the protests in january. for this, mubarak faces the death penalty. today he said he categorically denies all charges. the opening of the trial was on egyptian tv and achieved many things here that they say, this is not punishing mubarak, this is a warning to whoever follows him as a leader. whatever you do, you're honorable to the people. this is a revolution. natalie? >> all right, martin, such a striking image there in cairo,

7:31 am
rescue of a woman who spent four days and three nights lost in the oregon wilderness. the preschoolteacher disappeared on saturday and survived by beatibeat eating berries and drinking water. the latest on this condition coming up just ahead. also, here's a question. this is pretty tough. would you let your daughter push you to find a sugar daddy online? coming up, controversial and scary way that some young women are paying off their college loans. let's begin this half hour with today's 5:00 p.m. deadline facing casey anthony to return to orlando. we'll talk to her lead defense attorney in a moment. but first, kerry sanders is in orlando with the latest on this story. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, matt. casey anthony's defense attorney cheney mason says she will not turn herself into the department of corrections here any time today. in a motion filed with the court he argues the judge's order
7:32 am
telling her to show up was made with reckless disregard for her due process and civil rights. just minutes before the cloak of the court's office closed on tuesday defense attorney cheney mason filed a motion arguing there's no reason for casey acquitted of murdering her daughter caylee, to now report to a probation officer. >> do you feel that casey is obligated to show up to the department of corrections tomorrow? >> no, i do not. >> because? >> she's -- >> reporter: in the defense motion filed with the court cheney mason included this january document from the department of corrections that tells casey, you are hereby notified that you completed your terms of supervision. >> she will remain a free woman, never to return to florida? >> we'll is v. to wait and see. >> reporter: casey anthony is in hiding if judge ordered her back to orlando was the judge 16
7:33 am
months ago who accepted casey's guilty plea on passing bad checks. casey admitted when caylee was reported missing she stole her best friend's checkbook and went on a shopping spree at target and winn-dixie. when she was sentenced, casey apologized. >> i'd like to sincerely apologize to amy. >> reporter: judge strickland sentenced her to a year probation and the department of corrections agreed. casey serve that 365-day probation while she sat in jail for more than a year awaiting her murder trial. but monday judge strickland clarified that order saying her probation should begin now that she's out of jail. casey's legal team argued judge strickland should not be allowed to now change the terms of her probation and the defense argues the judge has demonstrated unbridled prejudice, in part, they say, because of this interview with nbc station in orlando. >> to this day i'm surprised.
7:34 am
>> reporter: the judge made these comments after the jury found casey not guilty of murder. >> and i just think -- i try and think of why it occurred, and i'm still not sure. i think that people don't understand the nature of circumstantial evidence and they don't understand that circumstantial evidence is evidence. >> reporter: now, judge stan strickland has not seen this motion. not because it was filed late yesterday but because he is on vacation. so he has not ruled on the motion. the department of corrections here says they have made plans anticipating that casey anthony will turn herself in today as required and, if she does not, they anticipate that the judge will then issue a bench warrant for her arrest. matt? >> kerry sanders in orlando for us this morning. thanks, as always. jose baez, casey anthony's lead defense attorney is with us exclusively. mr. baez, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. how are you? thank you.
7:35 am
you agree with mr. mason that there's no way that casey will return to florida today? >> hopefully it will not get to that point. we are certainly going through the legal process. we filed our motion. we anticipate filing more motions today and asking for a hearing immediately on this because we have an issue of safety. and the last thing we wt to do is put casey in harm's way. that's what our process is about. >> talking about the safety issue in a second, but have you spoken to casey since the judge made this demand and what's her reaction? >> i certainly can't convey statements that i've made or my client has made with me, but she is aware of the situation. get1: your legal opinion on this, mr. baez, because it's a little bit confusing. according to this defense motion filed late last night there is this document from the department of corrections that tells casey that she has completed her terms of supervision. is that referring to this issue specifically or something else?
7:36 am
>> well, i would disagree with you, matt. i think it's very confusing. the department of corrections issued that because she served her probation. she has completed the terms of probation. had she had done something in the jail that would have violated her probation, she would have had a probation violation and had to serve time for that violation. so she was exposed to probation, it. completed cc1: probation officer actually came out and met with her. they continue to monitor her. she's completed her probation. >> the letter from the department of corrections, the judge in this case, judge strickland, had said earlier he reserved the right to reconsider the sentence in the future, in fact, originally didn't he say that he wanted casey's probation to begin if and when she was released from jail? >> that was what was said on the record. however, that's not the way it's done. issue a probation for somebody in the future.
7:37 am
the way it works is you're given a sentence and it's at the end of that sentence you can then be sentenced to probation or it starts immediately. and in this case, she was given 4 412 days for credit time served. at that point it immediately began. now, there's one other thing. in the state of florida, a judge has 60 days to make a correction to the order. that day has long gone. >> let me ask you about something else, because you heard judge strickland's comments in that interview he affiliate.r nbccccc1: viewers o remind ourcc1: judge strickland was on a criminal trial for a while until he recused himself because of objections coming from your defense team. so do you think this is a case of legal interpretation or is it perhaps something personal here? >> you know, i don't pretend to another goes on incc1: person's mind. and i also don't think it's proper for me to make comments,
7:38 am
extra judicial comments about a judge. i don't think that's the right thing to do, or professional. but i will say this, legally i think that the order is flawed and that's why we filed the motion. and in addition to that, the order says that i was in court on monday. i wasn't even in the state. and neither was my client. so the whole thing is very confusin confusing. >> right. >> and we're certainly trying our best to clarify it. and we want to take the proper legal steps to do so. >> let me go back to that safetyisafety issue that you raised earlier, mr. baez. there's no secret that shortly after the verdict in the murder trial and casey was released from trial that she was whisked away to some undisclosed location. that was done because there were huge emotions after the verdict and there were threats, quite frankly, made against your client. by returning to florida, do you think her safety would be placed in jeopardy? >> unfortunately, yes, matt. you know, i live in the united
7:39 am

8:15 am
what is the level of the financial desperation that is causing these college women and to a smaller degree men to make this decision? >> we don't promote it because it puts flesh and blood on the statistics that we hear every day how kids graduate from college and can't get jobs. 85% of them go back to live with their parents because they can't make ends meet. and they graduate with unprecedented loans. there's now $1 trillion in college loans that college kids owe. so just think of it. this is the american dream, right? you play by the rules. you work hard. you graduate from college. but we have an economy which does not make it possible for them to get a good job and pay their debts. so this is really an act of desperation. >> okay. >> hundreds of thousands of them. it's not just a small problem with a few thousand women who look for sugar daddies who sell themselves, who basically take a step that's ultimately going to
8:16 am
affect their whole life. >> you say hundreds of thousands. that's the evidence? >> just on this one website seeking arrangement, there are 245,000 women registered who have a college, dot edu, e-mail address. >> the women and men who are students, to not be negatively effected by this kind of relationship? >> i think it's likely that they will. i mean, they're using defenses to try to say this is okay or i am desperate or it's what i have to do. but i think ultimately because it may feel like an immoral act down the road there's going to be guilt. where there's guilt there's often self destructive behavior. >> in addition to the physical and the psychic risks they're taking, they also seem to not be getting paid sometimes very much. >> no, the story that amanda fairbanks, education reporter wrote about, african-american
8:17 am
student who went to college, who went all of the way to grenich to spend an afternoon and have sex with a wealthy man. at the end of which she got $350. and she said when she got back on the train to get home, she was racked with guilt and confusion about what she had done. so my question as a parent, we all have college kids, and what are we doing about it? >> what are we doing about that, gayle? >> i tell you what we need to be doing. it's not just about the desperation, it's staying in touch with your child about what their needs might be. if you really teach your child to be independent you're also teaching them to have moral compass. and this is -- this is frankly a lacking that. i think it's desperation and a change in our moral fiber where girls are able to say to themselves this is okay. it's not okay. >> you can obviously, we have to do more to protect our children.

going to do this -- >> not going to be involved. >> refreshingly. >> the way you guys switch bodies, keeping in mind that this is morning television, who wants to take a run at how this strange phenomenon occurs? >> well, two guys who left their adult actors at home go out for a night of drinking and these drunken idiots relieve themselves in a public place, in a fountain. that happens to be -- >> magical. >> magical fountain. >> sure. >> we get that right the hell out of the way early on. and then these two guys switch. what happens is the exact reasons it needed to be rated r, if we did live in a world where two drunken idiots could do this in a magic fountain, this is what would happen. >> i kept thinking while i was watching this movie, if this is what made it into the movie, imagine the stuff that got left on the edit room floor. >> we cramme eme emed quite a b >> yeah.

8:48 am
really proud of the movie. >> one of the things that comes across very well in the movie is you guys get along well on screen and i would imagine in life as well. from what i understand, this has been someone who has been kind of nice to you from the beginning. >> you know, i was, you know, a fresh face, 19-year-old kid when i moved to los angeles. and he was one of the first people who was nice to me. i was a rough drunk. i'm not going to say he was sober at the time. but, you know, he was very, very kind. and then we maintained a friendship throughout the years. always wanted to do something together, and this came along. it was just the perfect vehicle for that. >> and the experience was good. you might do this again? >> well, america is going to decide that. go and stuff the box office and we'll do another one. >> yeah. >> jason bateman, ryan reynolds, good luck. appreciate it. it's called "the change-up." it hits theaters on friday. universal pictures. thanks very much.

and then ask yourself this question. what do i want to do? what potential do i want to realize? it is far more important that you realize the resources, whether it's $10,000 or the student debt in a way that helps you to get where you want to go. so whether you become a perfect investor right now with a portfolio of bonds, stocks, who cares? you're a beautiful young woman with a huge future. you have cash on hand and a modest amount of debt. go for it. just figure out what the plan is. >> i agree with dylan, however. >> and i'm not saying grow the money, i'm saying think about what you want to do before you decide what to do with your money. >> look at the interest rate on the student loan. if it's a cheap loan -- >> christine, what's the interest rate on your loan? >> you know, i know it's pretty low. >> it's a federal loan? >> take your time, pay off that loan over ten years, make sure
9:11 am
you have emergency savings in place and then look at your opportunities. >> some people want to rush in. and they don't think about having the emergency fund. that's first and foremost. >> money is an opportunity to do things, and you have to think about what you want to do and use that resource to help you get where you want to go. >> christine, thank you so much. dylan, you're a handsome man. >> i feel handsome. i do. >> absolutely. >> thank you. >> barnmarny lives in new jerse. what's your question? >> i am a teacher that is invested in the pension. how should i handle the mean that's already in my pension if i leave the state? can i take out and put it in a requirement fund without being penalized. >> you are talking about being vested and not fully vested at this time. and that means you probably don't have access to all of the
9:12 am
funds in the pension, but the contributions that you have made, those are yours and that's your money. that's your eligible money. check with the employer to make sure that that's the money you can take out. how much it is. that's the money you will be able to roll over to an ira. key is to do a direct rollover to the financial institution so you don't have to pay the 20% withholding and don't get the additional penalty if you're under 59 1/2, and see all of your option there, and the national association of personal financial advisers, that's the best place to go to find one in your area. >> good luck, marnie. >> let's head to the crowd. a question from june and gary from alabama. hey, guys. >> hi. this is -- my name is june i'm from alabama and i have a question. my husband and i just recently retired, and we've been frugal throughout our years, and we have money in savings and 401(k)s that type of thing, and we're wondering, how much of it
9:13 am
can you spend before you run out of money or before you die? >> okay. >> that's the million dollar question. and the basic rule is 4%. you have to realize that 4% is a moving target. 4% of your portfolio today is less than it was a couple of days ago because the market has been heading down, look at that number and pull out 4% or less every single year and you should be able to live forever. >> you look great. but what is your health care going to be down the road. and that will eat into retirement savings. a couple, 65, may spend over $200,000 out of retirement on health care costs alone. think about your health and really take care of yourself. >> thank you. good luck. thanks so much. don't forget, check dylan out on "dylan "dylan ratigan show" and we have

if morning on "today's" relationships. what would you do if your partner put on some extra pounds? according to a recent poll nearly 50% of men say they would dump their partner if she gained too much weight. nicole is the executive editor of "cosmopolitan" magazine and robi ludwig is contributor to ladies, we are shocked. cosmo did this survey of 80,000 men. men who are basically not married yet, though. they're boyfriend and girlfriend. this was the result. half of them. >>, did a joint survey. 80,000 people overall. this horrifying stat, they said 50% of guys said they would leave their partner if she were to gain significant weight. i'm five months pregnant, reading this is very alarming.
9:18 am
i'm taking it as a not so gentle reminder that no matter how in love a man is, physical attraction always remains very important to him. >> and, where do you think this is coming from, that men feel that the relationship can dissolve so much based on that physical attraction? >> men are statistically a lot more focused on looks and body type. and it does matter to them, because in part they feel that who they're with is a statement about who they are. so if they're with somebody who doesn't look good, what does that say about them? they have low self-esteem, they're not successful? plen a men are a little bit more focus and what their women look like. >> it's also about weight. i think that for men some are thinking if she gains a lot of weight it means she no longer cares about her appearance, which means she no longer cares about being sexually attracted to me which means we're never
9:19 am
going to have sex again. >> interesting thing is studies show that a woman who is obsessed with her weight isn't necessarily more sexual. if she feels good about herself, that can increase her sexuality. >> meanwhile, women are much more forgiving, thank god, in this survey. apparently 20% of women would dump their boyfriend if he gained weight. i guess we give a little more in that department. >> right. there are other parts of the survey that show that men were less for giving for themselves. when it comes a certain part of their anatomy, majority of men would like to be a little bit bigger and that jmajority are h. men are hard on themselves, too. >> when it comes to the message the survey says to women in terms of self-esteem, what does this tell us, nicole? besides, get to the gym now, do zumba on the plaza. >> the message for me and i think most women should take
9:20 am
away is just the physical attraction and sexuality is important to the relationship. they call it intimacy for a reason. if you lose that, the relationship will suffer maybe more for the men than women. self-esteem, being at the weight that makes you feel happy and comfortable and sexy. that's going to make you feel the best. >> there is a weight discrimination in our country and it has increased by 66% over the last ten years. >> is it equal men to women, that weight discrimination? it doesn't seem to matter so much when a man puts on weight. >> it does. it does affect men in the job market, in terms of dating. women, it affects them a little bit more because that's in part what we bring to the table, how we look. and i think we just have to understand that reality. there is a study done that had a man pictured with a heavyset woman that same man pictured with a thin woman. and the man with the heavier woman, there was a more negative response to. so i mean, i think looks impacts us. >> if there is some redemption here, there is a part of the
9:21 am
survey that i think is interesting, where 26% of women say having a successful partner is the ultimate status symbol. meanwhile, 39% of men say family is the ultimate status symbol. it sounds like when they're in a committed relationship and ready to start a family -- they do like to be in that committed relationship and will stay. >> i think it's important that women not get too comfortable and think, well, he loves me, we've been together for a long time, we have kids together, it doesn't matter anymore. >> and couples should help each other to be their best physically, emotionally. >> lie. >> no, they don't. >> twice as big as they used to be and lie to your face, no, honey, we love you. >> they want to love you into beauty. that's the key. >> all right. well, ladies, the discussion is certainly -- it's pretty unbelievable when you look at all the statistics from this
