10:00 am
swelling of the lips, tongue or throat, or difficulty breathing or swallowing, stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis for daily use and a 30-tablet free trial. good morning. i'm richard lui in for chris jansing. what is going on with san diego's mayor? this morning attorneys could start another round of dlickets. 16 women have come forward to accuse filner of sexual harassment. he doesn't show up yesterday after a week of personal leave and two weeks in therapy. protesters stepped to the city hall and many taking to the microphone to defend him vigorously. >> i will say today we will stand behind him. he asked him not to resign. >> what we have is a lynch mob that has said just the opposite.
10:01 am
they have said you are guilty and now you need to provide proof that you are innocent. >> he has a vision for the city which no previous mayor has ever had. >> the recall effort to oust filner from office has thousands of volunteers. top democrats from across california have called for him to resign. >> bottom line is we have a mayor in hiding. we are here because we have to get a real mayor. >> it's best for our city if bob fill ner were to move on and we could bring in someone who could run the city effectively. >> 7:00 a.m. in san diego. joe fryer, what are you seeing? >> we can tell you attorney gloria allred was a part of yesterday's mediation talks says she does not plan to return for me mediation today. she was just speaking for
10:02 am
herself and her client. she could not speak for the other parties involved. it is blooe that the mayor was there. his car was seen leaving the building where the mediation was taking place last night. it's also reported that some other city leaders are inside that meeting which makes some sense because they all have a stake in this. gloria allred emerged around 5:30 last night west coast time with one of her clients, one of filner's accusers and she stepped up to the mike but she couldn't say much. she just confirmed that mediation was ongoing led by a retired judge. she couldn't elaborate on how it was going, what was being said or whether any progress was being made. that is the big question, did they make any progress? did they come to an agreement? at this point, one heads-up as to whether they reach any sort of agreement might be through the city council and it's possible the city council would have to have some closed door session to vote upon any sort of agreement that takes place. if we get any notice that the
10:03 am
city council might be meeting behind closed door that could be an indication but at this point, it's tough to say where this is heading today. >> joe fryer reporting for us, appreciate it. rachel lang is a communications director for the recall bob filner effort. thanks for joining us today. right now, how many people are working on this effort and how many signatures do you have that 100,000 being the number? >> yeah. we have over 1,100 people signed up and -- to volunteer and circulating petitions all over the city. right now, all we know from what has been returned is we have well over 4,000 signatures, but we don't know because we have so many -- so many it's truly a grassroots effort so we have a lot of people out there circulating petitions and they are not back to us yet. >> if you only have 4,000 signatures i think what is needed is 2,600 per date to reach that date and you have to get there by september 26th. are you going to make it? >> absolutely. we are going to make it. we have 1,590 people willing and
10:04 am
ready to sign this petition and know that based on the enthusiasm we saw on the first day. the challenge is getting the petition in front of them and getting the petitions back to headquarters. >> you heard what joe is telling us. the intimation here that filner supporters yesterday saying what happened happened to innocent until proven guilty? mayor filner has not been charged so far with a crime. what are you saying to them? due process? >> this is due process. a recall election is the ultimate. we put him into office based on what we believed about him and now we are looking to remove him from office based on what we believe about him, we, the public. >> do you think what has gone on has hurt the city of san diego? >> i know for a fact it has. department directors with one foot out the door. the city is basically paralyzed. our reputation is not good to have us on national television about our groper mayor. so it's not good for our city. he can't lead any more.
10:05 am
he can't possibly ever reclaim the ability to lead our city. >> rachel, some supporters that were out yesterday had said, hey, i've worked with the mayor and that did not happen to me. i was not groped. i was not approached. what do you say to them? >> i'm happy for them. i'm glad he has left a few women unspared, but, you know, with we know pretty well that he's done this. he basically admitted that he did. and i personally know several of the victims, including some who haven't come forward, and this is a pattern. it's a predatory pattern and it's pretty clear he is doing the same thing to every woman just about, asking if they are married, then coming on to them and asking for a date and getting increasingly aggressive. >> is recall the only thing for you? is there something in return? >> if he resigns, everybody would be happy for that. this is somebody who hasn't shown any shame or remorse what he has done. he is showing he is bummed out
10:06 am
that he got caught and wants to get out of it. recall is probably the only option. if he resigns, that is fine bus. >> rachel lang, thank you for your time. we have reached out to mayor millner for a comment and have not heard back as of yet. two big developments to tell you about this morning from egypt. it looks like hosni mubarak will he released as lawyers says it's 99% sure it's going to happen. the spiritual leader of the muslim brotherhood has been arrested and a sign that the interim government wants to help old friends and settle scores against old enemies. the big question remains what will the ruiz he united states did? the daily beast read this. i want to bring in "the new york times" political reporter nick and senior washington correspondent anna palmer. nick, start with you. nbc's kasie hunt confirming that the white house is saying at the
10:07 am
moment they have no definitive decision about aid to egypt. what do you know about this? which is it? >> you have this wrinkle, right? which is the next aid is not actually due for a few more weeks. so they can be holding it without any practical impact. it seems to me like a behind the scenes signal there to the regime to back off and allow some frerm. the truth is this whole package a military aid has not been used feven effectively. >> a new poll showing 51% of the people think we should cut off aid to egypt and 50% saying obama has not been tough enough to egyptian military. does that influence in the white house when it comes to a decision like this? >> i think this is something that is happening behind the scenes. they have been negotiating it with other countries for weeks. there's a real division in
10:08 am
congress. you have some republican hawks saying that it aid needs to be cut off but a real division some republicans and democrats don't think that is the right course of action. frankly when you see other countries that are allies like saudi arabia coming forward and republican republicly for them. it's disconcerting of what you could do to force the changes you're looking for. >> when you look at that poll that we just showed, is the president ahead or behind this then? >> i don't think they will decide foreign aid and support the egyptian regime based on polling. presidential politics in the sense of a race. this is really them trying to, you know, kind of have some consistency in terms of their policies. >> you were saying what the aid was earmarked for and how it
10:09 am
will be perceived as the president is or is not at the moment cutting that back. even if the u.s. cuts this back, this 1.5 billion, it's small compared to their gdp. other countries saying we will fill in the gap. even symbolically how will it affect the united states? >> it's important to remember what the aid will get us. priority access to the suez canal and right to have our war planes fly over their air space. it was never intended as a tool for democratic reform. we actually lose something, lose some flungs if we suspend it. and perhaps we should but we should also consider what is going to be lost if we don't give that to them, what the consequences will be for influence. there are certain times and places where our only stick is a carrot and the only influence is the money we give to countries. >> what else might it be other than the aid the united states could go if it's not this money
10:10 am
is what you're saying? >> you it seems like this is be our control for the time being. >> here is chuck hagel talking about egypt yesterday, anna. take a listen to this. >> our ability to influence the outcome in egypt is limited. it's up to the egyptian people. and they are a large great sovereign nation and it will be their responsibility to sort this out. >> when you listen to him, is that our position to stay out of this essentially here? >> i don't know that they are staying out of it but i certainly think they are trading very carefully. my colleague has a story today talking about last week, where the pentagon there is this tough talk that coming from the obama administration but they inked a deal for $14 million to refab some military planes.
10:11 am
so they are trying to be serious and take a tough stance but, at the same time, you don't get the sense that the military is really looking to cut out every single thing to hurt, you know, the egyptian, you know, country. >> anna and nick, thank you so much. >> any time. to pakistan. musharraf was indicted for the sensation of butoe. he pleaded not guilty don't. the prime minister was killed in 2007 after a political rally. this is the first time musharraf or any former army chief in pakistan has been charged with a crime. rcials. yep, there i am with flo. hoo-hoo! watch it!

able to enroll in the controversial obama care coverage. president obama is hitting the
10:15 am
road thursday, traveling through new york and pennsylvania. he is expected to talk about ways to help the middle class and promote the plan. today, senator ted cruz and the heritage foundation is taking their fight on the road to garner support to defund obama care. i'm joined by democratic new york congressman charlie rangel was the original sponsor of the act in september of 2009. congressman, four years ago now, right? that is what we are talking about. why is this bus tour necessary for the president? >> because the whole question that's left open is education. this is not unusual for a major piece of legislation such as this that affects millions and millions of people. it's the very same thing that president roosevelt had when he was talking about social security and talking about medicare. he has to have team dial in and
10:16 am
find out what it is about and we will be okay as a nation. >> republicans are asking if education or rejection? >> it's rejection that the republicans are talking about. the people who don't have health insurance it's like into the insurance companies that have invoices all over in washington. it seems to me if republicans didn't like obama care as they call it, what they would do is say here is an alternative to it. if you don't -- we don't like what the president is talking about, but if you have something where a parent can take their kids to get insurance and the insurance company cannot say your child is too sick to be insured, if you have kids under 26 and you don't want to bump them out there because they don't have a job, or if you just want to go to the doctor just to see like most people can do for a checkup to get well, and prescription drugs. how many people go to the doctor, the doctor tells them
10:17 am
what they need but they can't afford it? so this is an overall comprehensive program and come october 1st, nobody is going to repel it, richard. it's the law. and if it ever passed the senate, and it won't, then the president would veto it and so what are they doing? they are focusing on an anti-obama issue that has nothing to do with health care. >> health and human -- human and -- health and human services secretary, if i can say that properly, kathleen sebelius was in houston yesterday and trying to educate the youth on obama care. a part of that, we talk about the youth and obama care, some are saying that it would be more advantageous for the youth not to sign up because of the higher cost compared to the penalty itself. >> some are saying what people don't like talking about is that when i was your age or younger,
10:18 am
health care and pensions were the last thing on my mind, especially if i had to pay for it. young people universally in this country and all over the world just -- they think their parents and grandparents get sick so they are not encouraged to sign up now. by having them to sign up it reduces dramatically the cost for everybody, no matter what stage you're in. the insurance companies for the first time in the history of the united states will be controlled by the law. >> how do you reach the youth to get that message to them? >> by you allowing people like me and other people to tell them, listen. if you don't believe the policy issues, if you don't believe the president, go to healthcare.gov and see what is there for you to took advantage of. it's all a matter of one person telling another person. come october 1st when people see the benefits, it's just like
10:19 am
social security. i never appreciated it until i got the first check. >> let's talk about somebody you know well, ted cruz. he started his defund obama care campaign. in the past, he said he doesn't want americans to become addicted to government funded health care. how do you react to this campaign that he is undertaking? >> well, he's not a newcomer to the republican philosophy that social security is a medicare program and government shouldn't be paying for health care. this is an old republican thing. so when you bring up universal care and you find a guy like cruz, no new ideas at all, he knows clearly what he is against. he's a new member of the senate. he has no agenda. no experience. but one thing he knows, he knows how to agitate hate for the president. so what does this program stop, repel, kill? you never heard him talk about any passionate concern for babies that have no health care, for older folks that are in
10:20 am
need. but that's the whole campaign under the republican party. and it's tragic. i say that not facetiously. it's tragic because the united states should never have just one party. and i see the republican party just killing itself politically, fighting health care, fighting women, fighting minorities and if you just have the democratic party, that's not what makes america great as she is. >> congressman charlie rangel, thank you for your time. >> thank you, richard. best selling author elmore leonard died at 87. according to his website he passed away at his home this morning surrounded by his family. the crime writer wrote more than 45 books including several that were made into hold movies including "get shorty" and out out of sight." he suffered a stroke in july. crews fighting the wildfire that scorched over a hundred thousand acres of land and forced thousands of residents to

10:30 am
to a mother in canada. he says the following. as a u.s. senator i believe i should only be an american and went on to say this. >> i suppose that the fact that "the new york times" is this hysterical after my only having been in office about eight months, you know, maybe that's a sign we might be doing something right. i was born in canada. my mother is a u.s. citizen. she lived most of her life in the u.s. and i'm a citizen by birth. those are the facts of my birth and i'll let other people worry about the legal consequences of it. >> let's bring in msnbc contributor goldie taylor and managing editor of the goldie taylor project and republican strategist hogan gidly. you heard the explanation there from the senator. is your thought here the controversy is over? sealed? done? >> i don't think the controversy should have ever started. the fact is that ted cruz was born in canada to an american
10:31 am
citizen and by birth right is a natural born american citizen. did he by that birth have citizenship? he did in canada. because his father was a cuban citizen at the time he has a cuban citizenship. should he denounce those things and say i renounce thee, i renounce thee? he should if he running for president of the united states then we don't want any ties with other countries in that way. but is this silly season? absolutely. >> silly season as you say. hogan, comment on this. it was just a couple of weeks ago that oklahoma republican congressman mark wayne mullen said he agreed with the birther who claimed she had evidence that president obama was not born in the u.s. when you look at this, why aren't birthers going after cruz right now? >> let me say i am not a birther and i believe that barack obama
10:32 am
was born in the united states so let me get that out now. i think two distinct differences here. the birther movement against ted cruz is admittedly much smaller but deals with the legality of the term natural born citizen and bl it applies to ted cruz whether born on u.s. soil and has a u.s. mother. >> interpretation. >> against barack obama is much different and that was he wasn't born here at all. when they tried to goat him into releasing his birth certificate and did it was deconstructed by a kid on youtube in 10 minutes using a software and somehow, some way, president obama doctored his birth certificate and wasn't eligible to be president of the united states. two completely things. i agree with goldie both are hog wash and don't deserve any credibility in the press. >> you're saying one is interpretation and the other one has to do with fact and challenging both of those two? >> absolutely. they are different but the result is the same and we are spending a lot more time on silly things like that in the
10:33 am
silly season as goldie put it as opposed to to focusing on real issues and moving the country forward. >> let's try to be less silly. when you look at his decision to denounce his canadian citizenship is he looking toward 2016 and why would it matter at this point? >> he is looking forward to 2016 but the issue for ted cruz is not his citizenship in canada or cuba or anywhere else other than the united states. the issue for him does he renounce some of the extreme policy positions he holds such as ironically, on impraegs and against the dreamers act. many young people in this country who did not know whether or not they were in this country legally or not until they were, you know, attempting to get a driver's license. they came here when they were 4. until he renounces things like his extreme views on women's right to reproductive health. until he gets right on some of those issues, i don't see him winning the white house, you
10:34 am
know, at all. >> ted cruz here, hogan, has been crisscrossing the united states as well as texas, holding town hall meetings against obama care. we are seeing that right now. is he what republicans need in 2016? >> i'm not sure yet. i think the jury is still out. we got a long way to go until 2016 but i agree with goldie in this sense. look. in the senate and the house you kind of have protection with the behemothness of the body, if you will. in this sense you. put forth all types of legislation and go around your district and state and tell people how you're going to do it and you don't have to govern. you don't have to bring people together under a common cause like governors do which is why we have more governor presidents than those from the senate. he is going to have to move the ball forward. republicans have done a very good job explaining what we are against. it's time to talk about what we are for and proffer some alternative plans to those the president has offered because, otherwise, we are just running as the party of no. we have got to build some
10:35 am
coalitions and we have got to get some politically successes and we got to get some policy successes in both chambers if we are bringing a new reformed message to the american people that shows we are for something and for this country and let's get out there and show it. >> thank you both. >> thank you. >> thanks. news feed this morning. the man who died in a shoot-out with police after kidnapping hannah anderson left $112,000 to her grandfathmother. he lived with her two years before buying the house. he named her as the sole beneficiary of his life insurance. the family spokesperson says he believes it was probably for hannah's benefit. canadian community is reaching out for to support a boy with. letter was written by a neighbor that plains about the whaling noise that the 13-year-old makes outside. the letter urges his grandmother
