great wednesday. good morning, america. and breaking news super scandal. espn reporting an nfl investigation has revealed the new england patriots did use illegal footballs in their blow-out victory this weekend. 11 of the 12 balls were underinflated. what does this mean with the super bowl fast approaching? >> i have no more campaigns to run. i know because i won both of them. >> following president obama on the attack defending his presidency claiming credit for the fast-moving economy vowing to fight the republican majority in congress. winter weather warning. another big storm hitting this morning and a nor'easter on the way dumping snow and creating a dangerous commute. concern about more scenes like these, cars pinballing on the road. we'll have the latest. and bradley cooper is up for
7:01 am
an oscar so why is everyone buzzing about his tiny co-star, the real story behind this little scene stealer. why everyone is talking about the fake baby blooper. and we do say good morning, america. and we have so much to get to this morning. george he's still down there in washington for the president's big speech last night. good morning, george. >> good morning robin. that was the president's sixth state of the union. tone confident, even cocky. you would never know the democrats took a beating. no olive branches and the president laid out what he wants to do and we'll have more on that ahead. >> back to you in a moment but we'll begin with that breaking news overnight. the so-called deflate-gate
7:02 am
the patriots did use underinflated balls in their win over the colts this weekend, it is reported. abc's ryan smith is here with the latest. >> this is at the center of the controversy. a huge mess for the patriots and now we're learning their championship game losing opponent tipped the refs off and with the super bowl less than two weeks away some are questioning whether the air was let out of the patriots' integrity. overnight a major deflate-gate development, nfl sources tell espn 11 of the new england patriots' 12 game balls in sunday's win over the colts were underinflated by two pounds per square inch. >> they probably don't know how they became underinflated but the fact that there were 11 out of the 12 balls was certainly a big disappointment. >> reporter: the colts grew suspicious after d'qwell jackson intercepted tom brady late in the second quarter. jackson then gave the ball to a member of the colts equipment staff who immediately notified his head coach and general manager.
7:03 am
seconds after the opening kick of the third quarter with the patriots leading 17-7 officials held up the game. the refs switched out the game ball and pats went on to outscore them in the second half for a 45-7 victory. over two hours before kickoff each of the team's 1 game balls were required to be inspected and approved by the referee. league rules state after that no alter rag are allowed. each team uses their own balls and they're allowed to slightly doctor them to their preferences. aaron rodgers admitted to overinflating his football. less air makes it easier for the teams to catch. this development coming just a day after pats quarterback tom braid den a head coach bill belichick denied accusations they intentionally deflated them making them easier to catch and grip but the findings setting off a firestorm. indianapolis punter pat mcafee
7:04 am
tweeting if new england was to be dq'd he'd be their replacements right. in 2007 belichick was fined for videotaping sideline signals during the game. with super bowl xlix less than two weeks ago could it derail their road to the big game? >> one dumb thing that doesn't matter. it'll mean more to the legacy of what the patriots are trying to do than the actual infraction. >> this morning the league isn't commenting. the investigation is still under way but the patriots tell abc news they've been in complete cooperation with the league and will continue to do dough. this is the regular football and this you can see the flattened one. this game was raining. so that makes it even harder to catch. so the conspiracy theorists will say this was a plan and that's how they won this game. >> well because 11 of the 12 -- >> that's a lot. >> you heard steve young say, really. it may damage their reputation
quote quote
7:05 am
but that's not going to prevent them from going on to the super bowl nor should it. >> still people will say is there going to be an asterisk on them. it does make the grip easier and an issue a lot of people bring up. thank you very much. >> back now to george in washington. >> thank you, robin. we turn to the state of the union and aggressive speech from the president saying the shadow of crisis has passed. he took credit for the economic recovery offered up an uncompromising liberal agenda for his last two years. abc's jon karl is there. there was not a lot of love there. >> i didn't hear any concessions from the president. he seemed so confident you would have thought he had just won another election. the president who campaigned saying yes we can has a new theme, yes, we did. >> we've seen the fastest economic growth in over a decade. our deficit's cut by two-thirds. a stock market that has doubled and health care inflation at its
quote quote quote quote
7:06 am
lowest rate in 50 years. [ applause ] that's good news, people. >> reporter: the press's was most obvious when he went off script during the most memorable line of the night. >> i have no more campaigns to run. [ applause ] >> my only agenda -- i know because i won both of them. [ laughter ] >> reporter: almost immediately the #iwonboth set a for the next two years the president vowed to fight republican efforts to roll back any of his policies from immigration to obamacare. >> if a bill comes to my desk that tries to do any of these things i will veto it. >> reporter: striking a pop lift tone he called for higher taxes on the wealthy and new programs to help the middle class including free community college for all and vowed to continue to fight for things he couldn't get
quote quote
7:07 am
done even before the republicans took over like raising the minimum wage. >> if you truly believe you can work full time and support a family on less than $15,000 a year try it. if not, vote to give millions of the hardest working people in america a raise. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: closing the guantanamo bay prison. >> i will not relent in my determination to shut it down. it is not who we are. >> reporter: republicans didn't applaud much at all and the president said nothing to acknowledge the republicans had just won a big victory in the midterm elections. but the entire chamber did cheer guests in the first lady's box. especially alan gross, released just last month after being sdwraled for more than five years by the cuban government. it was up to joni ernst, the pig castrating new republican to give the response. she reminded everybody that the
7:08 am
president's party was trounced in november and promised a big change in direction from the president's policy saying quote, we heard the message you sent in november loud and clear. george it was clearly a different message than the message the president heard. >> yeah sounds like a recipe for stalemate. >> absolutely. >> jon karl thanks very much. i spoke with the vice president moments ago. mr. vice president, thanks for joining us this morning. you were sitting next to speaker boehner all last night. he didn't seem too impressed with the president's speech and called them the wrong priorities for the country. doesn't seem like much of anything the president will propose will go anywhere. >> i disagree. you know the republicans are now even some taking credit for the recovery so they must think something we did went pretty well. secondly they're talking about the middle class. that's not been part of their political vocabulary up till now so there's going to be some stark choices. they'll have to decide whether
7:09 am
they'll step up help the middle class, the tax cuts with education and on those issues and i believe there is a significant core republicans who believe now is the time to make this recovery good for everyone and stronger for the middle class. >> a year from now which of the president's big proposals will be law? >> i think -- i hope a year from now all the proposals relative to the middle class tax cuts as well as education. look there are -- here's what's happening. you know the economy is growing. you know like i said everybody seems to be embracing what's happening now, particularly relative to the rest of the world, jobs are coming home. we're talking about in-sourcing. we have to focus on two thing to continue the momentum. one is make sure we have the best infrastructure in the world so people keep coming back and people invest here and companies invest here in the united states and come home and, secondly we have to have the most skilled workforce in the world and there are things that the republicans
7:10 am
can agree on and i think now that they actually have to lead i mean they own the congress they are the ones who are in the majority. and i think the public is going to insist that we work together. >> it hasn't been a historic consensus for tax increases, has there? >> here's the deal there are $300 billion in tax increases on things we don't need to do. a thing called up stepped up basis. why should somebody be left $10 million in stock that in fact when they bought it now worth 50 million why shouldn't they pay tax on it if they inherited itty if someone is in the stock market and they, in fact make $10 on a stock, that's a capital gain. you know that's $210 billion and it's a real easy choice. want to continue to help trust fund babies or go out -- good people -- those's not a pejorative term last thing they need is another $210 billion tax cut when you can put that money
7:11 am
into making sure people get tax cut to help first with child care help with sick leave, help with be able to own their homes, et cetera. >> mr. vice president, as you know the presidential campaigns are heating up on both sides, secretary clinton is lining up staff and support includes many members of president obama's team. our latest poll shows she's the overwhelming choice of democrats. is there any chance you can challenge her? >> yes there's a chance but i haven't made up my mind about that. we have a lot of work to do between now and then. there's plenty of time. look, the person who is going to end secretary clinton is really competent competent, capable person and a friend. the person who is going to be the next president of the united states is the one that's going to be able to articulate the clearest vision of where they'll take the country. >> there is a chance you'll challenge her. eight years ago you put yourself into the race. when do you have to make up your mind? >> well i don't think i have to make up my mind until the summer. i think there's -- i think this
7:12 am
is wide open on both sides. and -- but look right now my focus is getting implemented what the president talked about last night to nail down this recovery and get the middle class back in the game. >> mr. vice president, thanks very much for your time this morning. >> thanks, george. >> so robin, there you heard it vice president biden still hasn't given up going for the white house. >> you haven't given up on trying to get him to answer that question. okay george back to you in a moment. the latest on the final moments of airasia flight 8501. the investigation now revealing the plane made a sudden steep climb before stalling and plunging into the java sea. abc's david kerley is in washington with the latest on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is our first official solid indication of what happened to that airasia flight. but there are still many questions. they have pulled up the tail the black boxes and found the
7:13 am
fuselage but it is the radar data that the transportation minister now says it was climbing too fast a rate stalled and then plunged into the java sea. the pilots encountered severe weather and wanted to climb but approval was delayed. the indonesians say the jet started climbing at a rate of 6,000 feet a minute that is at least three times faster than a normal ascent. >> for the passengers the g-forces necessary to get that airplane into a precipitous climb would be very scary. >> reporter: climbing that fast means forward air speed is lost the wings lose their ability to lift the plane so it stalls and starts falling to earth. >> when an airplane stalls it can end up spinning and that spin may be unrecoverable. >> reporter: well it's been a week now since the indonesians recovered the black boxes and have yet to release specific data. the cockpit recorder does show there were no other voices in the cockpit or threats ruling
7:14 am
out terrorism and no indication of a bomb. now, the indonesians are required to file a 30-day report. that's next week but this morning they are saying they will not make that public. safety experts are getting concerned about the secrecy and what they see as a conflict of interest in this investigation, robin. >> many are concerned about that. david, thank you. now to amy has the other top stories for the morning. good morning. >> good morning, everyone. we begin with what authorities are calling a terror attack in israel's second largesty this morning. police in tel aviv say a palestinian man boarded a bus and went on a rampage stabbing at least nine passengers before he was chased down shot and arrested. four people were seriously injured. it is the latest in a string of attacks in which palestinians have used knives acid and vehicles as weapons. also breaking overnight the government of france has announced it will hire nearly 3,000 new counterterrorism officers and supply police with better weapons in the wake of the paris attacks this month. much of western europe remains
7:15 am
on edge. just today four men accused of helping the paris grocery store attacker were booked on terror charges. and the doctor shot inside a prestigious boston hospital has now died. cardiac surgeon michael davidson was shot twice at brigham and women's hospital tuesday. the suspected shooter found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. his mother was reportedly one of davidson's patients before she died. but authorities have not confirmed a motive for the deadly attack. and new details about the mases outbreak in california which is now spreading to four other states. health officials confirm five workers at sdizny land have been diagnosed with the disease although most have been cleared to return to work. at least 51 people have been sick in the last month. the latest case is in oregon dozens of unvaccinated students at a california school had to be sent home after a classmate came down with the disease. and turning now to the economy this morning, now may be the best time in months to
7:16 am
refinance your mortgage. rates have hit a new low and abc's rebecca jarvis is here with the details. >> reporter: good morning, this is very significant. this morning the average 30-year fixed rate mortgage is close to its rock bottom lows. right thousand at 3.6% and for many refinancing could mean huge savings. take a look at this. if you have a $200,000 mortgage at 4.6% right now and you can refi it at 3.6% you will save $118 a month which is more than $40,000 over the life of your loan. but before you race to refi take a look at those fees and remember if you're going to be moving in two years or less refinancing, it doesn't usually make sense. plus it is time to shop around. there are some great websites to check out, and bank rate a buyer's market and means you, the homeowner is in the driver's seat. >> all right. rebecca, thanks so much for that. and more shaking in the dallas area. four more earthquakes have hit in the last 24 hour the most
7:17 am
powerful was a magnitude 3. some experts blame oil and gas drilling for the three dozen quakes since october. and new video this morning of a massive fire engulfing this natural gas plant in south texas. fireballs shooting into the sky. the initial blast was felt for miles but no serious injuries reported. also caught on video, a wild crash as a car goes careening into this florida taco stand. the driver passed out before hitting a truck and flipping. her boyfriend had grabbed the wheel to keep them from hitting anyone. finally, a mystery surrounding tiger woods' new look. we told you yesterday that tiger lost a tooth while visiting his girlfriend lindsey vonn on the slopes. his agent said a cameraman at the awards ceremony bumped into tiger and knocked out his tooth but now witnesses and organizers of the ski are denying that. they say tiger seen earlier in the mask wasn't even at the
7:18 am
awards ceremony so now the big question is how did he really lose that tooth? i mean no photographer has come forward. there are no videos or photographs of the alleged bump and there were people that said no bleeding, no swelling, no discomfort on his face so the mystery swirling. >> tooth-gate. >> toothgate. >> what's the problem. y'all don't take tiger at his word? >> all right, t.j. >> you don't take him at his word? what's wrong with that? >> i just -- >> yeah we're going to -- >> t.j.! >> you don't trust. he's told you -- >> we'll leave it at that, t.j. how about that? >> maybe he slipped and fell much that's what people could do this >> maybe slipped and fell because that's what people could be doing. outside chicago there's a thin layer of ice and snow on top of it and that's why we see w.s right here grand rapids to fort wayne indiana.

7:34 am
he was a terrific leader. >> reporter: this morning, some of the debris is still smoldering but do expect there will be some areas safe enough for investigators to enter. at this point they say it's too early to have an opinion about whether this was a cruel arson or a horrific dent. >> bazi thank you so much. now we want to turn to a major new lawsuit against the wwe. former wrestlers claiming they've suffered brain damage from years of doing dangerous stunts. abc's tom llamas has our story. >> reporter: it's signature stunts like in that now has two former pro wrestlers filing a class action suit against world wrestling entertain many. this morning vito lograsso claiming that after nearly a decade of crushing blows in the wwe ring he now has brain damage. the same for evan singleton. this 40-page complaint body slamming the wwe for alleged
