TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" THE

DEMOCRATS NO. 1 ENEMY IN

CONGRESS.

WHY SO MANY ON THE LEFT HAVE IT

OUT FOR CONGRESSMAN ALLEN WEST.

PLUS SHOT BY THE TALIBAN, THE

LATEST ON THE TEENAGE ACTIVIST

TARGETED BY TERRORIST IN

PAKISTAN A WEEK AGO.

DEMOCRATS FOR LIFE.

PRO-LIFE VOTERS IN A TYPICALLY

PRO-CHOICE PARTY.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT

ON "NEWSWATCH." MOST AMERICANS

ARE PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION TO

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

THAT ISN'T THE ONLY BATTLE FOR

WASHINGTON POWER.

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

CONTROL OF CONGRESS IS SECOND.

CONGRESSMAN

DEMOCRATS VIEW HIM AS PUBLIC

ENEMY NO. 1, ALLEN WEST RUBS HIM

THE WRONG WAY. DEMOCRATS ARE

FIGHTING WEST INSULTS BY

FUNNELING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS

THROUGH CHALLENGER PATRICK

MURPHY.

WEST TELLS CBN NEWS, THERE IS A

REASON WHY DEMOCRATS ARE OUT TO

GET HIM, HE IS BLACKED AND

CONSERVATIVE.

IF THIS TYPE OF STORY GETS

OUT, WHAT HAPPENS TO THAT

CONSISTENT VOTING ELECTORATE

THEY HAVE IN THE BLACK

COMMUNITY. WEST AND MURPHY

COMPETING ALONG FLORIDA'S COAST

FROM WEST PALM BEACH TO FORT

PIERCE.

PATRICK MURPHY THROWN OUT OF

A CLUB FOR FIGHTING.

MURPHY RAN AN AD WITH

CHILDREN RECITING WORDS ALLEN

HAS USED.

YOU ARE NOT A LADY.

YOU ARE THE MOST VIABLE

DESPICABLE MEMBER OF THE

COMMUNIST PARTY.

PATRICK MURPHY, IS HE IN

OVER HIS HEAD?

JUST AN EMPTY SEAT SO HIS DAD

CAN HAVE POLITICAL INFLUENCE IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. MURPHY'S DAD

IS RUNNING CONTROVERSIAL ADS

LIKE THIS AGAINST WEST.

POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEES ARE

SUPPOSED TO HAVE NO COORDINATION

WITH POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS.

WHEN YOUR DAD IS STARTING A

PAC JUST FOR YOU AND THE MAJOR

CONTRIBUTOR, YOU CAN'T SAY THERE

IS NO COLLABORATION BETWEEN DAD

AND SON.

WEST CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN

FIGHTING BACK WITH WEST'S WIFE

TAKING TO THE CAMPAIGNS.

RECENT ATTACKS ON MY HUSBAND

GO TOO FAR.

VERY CONSERVATIVE, VERY GOOD

TARGET.

HE IS SO OVER THE TOP SO OFTEN.

IT GIVES DEMOCRATS SOMETHING TO

PUSH ON WHILE THAT PLAYS WELL TO

THE HARD CORE CONSERVATIVES, TEA

PARTIERS.

IT IS THE MODERATE TO

CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS, WILL

THEY GO FOR HIM?

THE WAY WEST SEES IT, HE IS

GOING TO SPEAK THE TRUTH THE

ONLY WAY HE KNOWS HOW.

IT COMES BACK TO WHY THE

OTHER SIDE DOESN'T LIKE ME.

NOT JUST STANDING UP FOR IT BUT

THAT WHICH IS RIGHT.

WHEN I GO TO ISAIAH 54:17, THAT

HELPS ME UNDERSTAND, NO WEAPON

FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSER.

EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP

AGAINST YOU YOU SHOULD WATCH

FOR.

THE ADMINISTRATION DIDN'T

PROVIDE MORE SECURITY WHEN U.S.

OFFICIALS REQUESTED IT.

LAST WEEK'S DEBATE, VICE

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN SAID QUOTE

WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE

REQUEST.

THAT RESPONSE ANGERED

REPUBLICANS.

DAVID AXELROD EXPLAINS WHAT

BIDEN MEANT.

THERE IS NO DOUBT SOME OF

THESE MATTERS WENT INTO THE

STATE DEPARTMENT.

IT DIDN'T COME TO THE WHITE

HOUSE.

THAT IS WHAT THE VICE PRESIDENT

WAS RESPONDING TO.

ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS

BLAME THE CONFUSION ON SHIFTING

INTELLIGENCE INFORMATION.

REPUBLICANS AREN'T BUYING IT.

NO RIOT AT ALL.

YOU ARE VERY INCOMPETENT.

THE INTELLIGENCE GROUND TOLD

OURSELVES WITHIN 24 HOURS THEY

COMMUNICATED UP TO WASHINGTON

THIS IS A TERRORIST ATTACK.

THE PRESIDENT IN LIBYA ON THE

SAME DAY SAID IT WAS A TERRORIST

ATTACK.

SENATOR ROB PORTMAN TELLS ABC

NEWS IT IS NOT A CAMPAIGN ISSUE,

IT IS AN ISSUE ONLY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND MITT

ROMNEY MEET FOR ROUND 2 AT

HOFSTRA IN NEW YORK.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: ACCORDING TO A NEW

ABC NEWS WASHINGT"WASHINGTON POST" POLL,

59 PERCENT OF ROMNEY'S

SUPPORTERS ARE STRONGLY

ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT HIM.

I THINK HE NEEDS TO TAKE A

MORE CONCRETE STANCE.

IT IS GOING GREAT. DEBATE

NO. 2 IS AT TOWN HALL WITH THE

QUESTIONS COMING FROM THE

AUDIENCE.

I AM DI APPOINTED.

HE MADE A LOT OF PROMISES THAT

HAVEN'T BEEN KEPT. YOU ARE

NOT SOLD ON GOVERNOR ROMNEY?

NO.

NOT YET.

DEMOCRATS SAY PRESIDENT OBAMA

PERFORMANCE WAS DAMAGING.

HIS CAMPAIGN SAYS DO NOT EXPECT

A REPEAT.

ROB PORTMAN HAS BEEN ROMNEY'S

DEBATE CAMPAIGN COMPANION.

HE IS READY.

BOTH CANDIDATES HAVE TO TREAD

LIGHTLY.

TOWN HALL FORMAT COULD BE

CHALLENGING FOR BOTH CANDIDATES,

NEITHER HAS HELD MANY EVENTS

LIKE THIS RECENTLY.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

FIVE GUANTANAMO PRISONERS ARE

IN COURT, KHALID SHEIKH MOHAMMAD

AND FOUR CO-CONSPIRATORS

APPEARED CALM AND RESPECTFUL.

A FAR CONTRAST FROM MAY.

FAMILIES OF 9/11 VICTIMS WERE

INVITED TO WATCH FROM NEW

JERSEY, MASSACHUSETTS, AND

MARYLAND, THE TERROR SUSPECTS

COULD FACE THE DEATH PENALTY.

A 14-YEAR-OLD PAKISTANI GIRL

HAS ARRIVED IN THE UK FOR

TREATMENT.

SHE SPOKE OUT FOR EDUCATION.

THE ATTACK HAS SPARKED OUTRAGE

IN PAKISTAN AND AROUND THE

WORLD.

MEDICAL OFFICIALS

TRANSPORTED HER FOR THE LONG

FLIGHT TO BRITAIN.

HER SKULL AND NECK WOUNDS ALONG

WITH THE SHOCK OF THE ATTACK ARE

SERIOUS ENOUGH, AUTHORITIES

DECIDED ON A PROLONGED STAY OUT

OF THE COUNTRY.

TALIBAN HAS THREATENED TO FINISH

THE JOB AND KILL HER.

SOME 10,000 DEMONSTRATORS

GATHERED TO PROTEST AGAINST IT

IS SHOOTING AND THE TALIBAN.

RALLY SPIRITED BUT NOT AS LARGE

AS THE CROWDS RECENTLY ASSEMBLED

TO PROTEST AGAINST THE FILM OF

MOHAMMED.

THIS PROTESTER SAYS WE SEE OUR

GIRLS ARE NOT SAFE WHEN THEY GO

TO SCHOOLS AND SEMINARIESEMINARIES.

THE TALIBAN GAGS THEIR MOUTH.

SHE FILED BLOG POSTS PROMOTED

EDUCATION FOR GIRLS.

IT WAS A COWARDLY ATTACK ON

HER AND HER SCHOOL FRIENDS

TRYING TO RETALIATE FOR HER OWN

CAMPAIGN FOR GOOD ACCESS TO

EDUCATION FOR GIRLS IN PAKISTAN.

JOHN WAAGE, CBN NEWS.

THE MORO ISLAMIC LIBERATION

FRONT HAS FOUGHT FOR AN ISLAMIC

STATE FOR DECADES.

MORE THAN 40 YEARS OF VIOLENCE

IN SOUTHERN PHILIPPINES HAS

KILLED TENS OF THOUSANDS AND

CRIPPLED DEVELOPMENT.

IT GRANTS THE MUSLIM POPULATION

AUTONOMY.

A GROUP OF FAITH LEADERS

ISSII

ISSII

ISSING -- ANY WAR BETWEEN

CIVILIZED MAN AND SAVAGE,

SUPPORT THE CIVILIZED MAN.

SUPPORT ISRAEL.

DEFEAT JIHAD.

METRO POSTPONED THE ADS.

NOW 200 RELIGIOUS GROUPS ASKING

THE METRO TO DONATE THE MONEY IT

IS MAKING OFF THE ADVERTISING.

THE WORD SAVAGE HAS A PAINFUL

HISTORY AMERICANS KNOW ALL TOO

WELL.

IT IS ONCE USED TO JUSTIFY

MASSACRES AND SLAVERY.

IT SEEMS TO DEHUMANIZE, DISTANCE

PEOPLE FROM THE HUMAN RACE,

HUMAN DIGNITY AND ANY CLAIM TO

HUMAN RIGHTS.

THE GROUP BOUGHT ADS AT

SEVERAL MAJOR SUBWAY SYSTEMS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

UP NEXT, BIGGER THEY ARE,

HARDER THEY ARE TO BURY.

WHY MORE FUNERAL DIRECTORS ARE

TELLING CUSTOMERS, YOU ARE GOING

TO NEED A BIGGER BOX.

A NATIONWIDE SALMONELLA OUT

BREAK IS RECALLING OVER 400

PEANUT PRODUCTS.

PRODUCTS CONTAIN PEANUTS AND

PEANUT BUTTER.

IT HAS BEEN TRACEED TO A NEW

MEXICO PEANUT MANUFACTURER

CALLED SUNLAND INCORPORATE,

WAL-MART, TARGET, TRADER JOES

ARE SOME OF THE STORES THAT

CARRY THAT BRAND.

CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL

IS STRUGGLING TO KEEP UP WITH

THE DEADLY MENINGITIS OUTBREAK.

OVER THE WEEKEND THE NUMBER OF

CASES JUMPS TO 205, 15 HAVE

DIED.

NEW ENGLAND COMPOUNDING CENTER

IS THE COMPANY RESPONSIBLE.

THEY ARE FACING SEVERAL LAWSUITS

AND CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION.

CONGRESS MUST NOW WAKE UP,

PASS A LAW SO THAT THE FDA CAN

PROTECT THE AMERICAN HEALTH AND

SAFETY.

AS MANY AS 14,000 PEOPLE MAY

HAVE RECEIVED THE TAINTED

INJECTIONS ACCORDING TO THE CDC.

ONLY ONE-THIRD OF AMERICANS

MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT,

ANOTHER THIRD CONSIDERED OVER

OVERWEIGHT AND ANOTHER THIRD

OBESE.

LORIE JOHNSON HAS THE STORY.

FOR THE LAST 130 YEARS, THE

NORTHWEST CASKET COMPANY HAS

BEEN MAKING PRODUCTS 24 INCHES

WIDE.

BUT NOW CUSTOMERS NEED THEM

BIGGER.

BASICALLY THE OVERSIZE HAS

TAKEN OVER A LOT.

THESE DAYS ONLY HALF ARE THE

STANDARD SIZE.

33 INCHES AND 55 INCHES FOR

REALLY LARGE PEOPLE.

THAT WOULD HOLD SOMEONE UP TO

1,000 POUNDS.

DID HE SAY 1,000 POUNDS?

AS THE POPULATION GETS

LARGER, OUR CASKETS GET LARGER.

BIGGER CASKETS SOMETIMES

REQUIRE TWO BURIAL PLOTS.

THEY REQUIRE SPECIAL VAULTS.

JUST LIKE IN LIFE, DEATH IS

OFTEN MORE COSTLY FOR THE

OVERWEIGHT AND OBESE.

A LOOK AT VOTERS GOING

AGAINST PARTY'S "NORMAL."

LONG TIME U.S. SENATOR ARLEN

SPECTER DIED SUNDAY MORNING

AFTER A LENGTHY BATTLE WITH NON

HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA.

HE STARTED AND ENDED HIS CAREER

AS A DEMOCRAT.

HE SPENT MOST OF HIS YEAR AS A

REPUBLICAN.

HE VOTED FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

STIMULUS PACKAGE.

HE HELPED BLOCK CONSERVATIVE

ROBERT BORK BUT ALSO HELPED

CLARENCE THOMAS MAKE IT TO THE

HIGH COURT.

THE LONGEST SERVING SENATOR IN

PENNSYLVANIA HISTORY.

ARLEN SPECTER IS AN ICON IN

PENNSYLVANIA.

HE STARTED OUT AS A YOUNG LAWYER

WORKING FOR THE WARREN

COMMISSION AFTER PRESIDENT

KENNEDY ASSASSINATED AND BECAME

A SENATOR AT A YOUNG AGE.

HE WOULD BE DOWN AT THE STANDS

AT STEELER'S GAMES INTRODUCING

HIMSELF GETTING TO KNOW THE

WHOLE STADIUM.

PUBLIC FUNERAL WILL BE HELD

TUESDAY IN PENNSYLVANIA.

IT IS RARE TO SEE A DEMOCRATS

FOR LIFE BANNER OR BUMPER

STICKER.

BEING PRO-LIFE IS OFTEN

ASSOCIATED WITH BEING A

REPUBLICAN.

REPORTER: PRO-LIFE DEMOCRATS.

NO, THAT IS NOT A MISTAKE.

IT IS A GROUP 21 MILLION STRONG.

ALTHOUGH THEY ARE THE FIRST TO

ADMIT, THEY ARE NOT EXACTLY THE

LIFE OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

IT IS REALLY TOUGH TO BE A

SOCIAL JUSTICE PRO-LIFE AMERICAN

CITIZ

CITIZEN. PRO-LIFE DEMOCRATS

WITNESS HOW TOUGH IT IS.

LAST MONTH'S NATIONAL

CONVENTION.

WE ACKNOWLEDGE ALL THE BIG

DIVERSITY, WHEN IT COMES TO

PRO-LIFE, IT IS SILENT.

THEY FIRST ADDED ABORTION IN

1976.

DEMOCRATIC PARTY STRONGLY

SUPPORTS ROW V WADE AND A

WOMAN'S RIGHTS INCLUDING A SAFE

AND LEGAL ABORTION REGARDLESS OF

AN ABILITY TO PAY.

WE OPPOSE ALL EFFORTS TO

UNDERMINE THAT RIGHT.

PRO-LIFERS WANT TO ADD LANGUAGE

ACKNOWLEDGING THERE ARE

DIFFERENCES OF OPINION ON

ABORTION.

PARTY LEADERS DENIED THE

REQUEST.

THEY SAY THAT DOESN'T MEAN THEY

ARE NOT HEARD.

WE KNOW THAT THEY ARE AT HOME

UNDER OUR BIG TENT.

I WOULD SAY TO ANYBODY, NOT ONLY

DO WE UNDERSTAND THAT

PERSPECTIVE EXISTS BUT WE

WELCOME IT AS PART OF A LARGER

DISCUSSION. IT COULD WEAKEN

THE DEMOCRAT BRAND.

THERE TENDS TO BE 176 PRO-CHOICE

DEMOCRATS SERVING IN THE HOUSE

OF REPRESENTATIVES.

DEMOCRATS NEED 218 SEATS.

PRO-LIFE REPUBLICANS CAN'T GET

THERE WITHOUT CANDIDATES LIKE

THEM.

THEY NEED US, WE NEED THEM.

LIMITING ABORTION IS

SOMETHING A MAJORITY OF

DEMOCRATS AGREE ON.

A 2011 GALLOP POLE

NEARLY 50 PERCENT SUPPORT

REQUIRING AN ULTRASOUND.

A QUARTER OF AMERICANS WHO VOTED

FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA IN 2008

IDENTIFIED THEMSELVES AS

PRO-LIFE.

WHY NOT SWITCH TO THE PRO-LIFE

FRIENDLY REPUBLICAN PARTY?

ANSWER BECAUSE THEY ARE

DEMOCRATS.

IF WE WERE LOOKING AT A

REPUBLICAN PARTY COMPASSIONATE

CONSERVATIVES IN FAVOR OF

BUILDING A THICK SOCIAL NET TO

PROVIDE THOSE THINGS, IT WOULD

BE A MUCH MORE COMPLICATED

QUESTION.

PART OF THE LIFE ISSUE IS THE

PROMISE OF ECONOMIC SUPPORT FOR

PREGNANT WOMEN.

WOMEN WHO BELIEVE THEY'LL HAVE

GOVERNMENT SUPPORT AFTER THE

BIRTH OF THEIR CHILD ARE LESS

LIKELY TO SUPPORT THEIR

PREGNANCY.

AS A PERSON ON FOOD STAMPS,

I KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THAT IS.

KATHY DOLLKEMPER WAS 21 WHEN

SHE GOT PREGNANT.

I FINISHED MY DEGREE.

WENT ON AND NEVER USED

GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE AGAIN.

A PRO-LIFE STANCE COULD

ATTRACT PEOPLE OF FAITH TURNED

OFF BY THE PARTY STANCE.

THEY ARE MARGINALIZED,

OSTRACIZED AND EVEN CENSURED IN

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

THAT IS WHY DEMOCRATS NO LONGER

HAVE PEOPLE LIKE ME.

THEY COULD IN THEY WOULD GIVE

THIS POWERFUL CONVICTION VOICE

IN THEIR NATIONAL -- ON THEIR

NATIONAL PLATFORMS.

DOLLKEMPER BELIEVES IT COMES

DOWN TO MONEY.

THEY CAN RAISE A LOT OF MONEY

WHEN IT IS A PROMINENT ISSUE.

BEING A MINORITY GIVES YOU

AROUND TO PRO-LIFE DEMOCRATS TO

GET YOU BACK INTO THE MAJORITY.

HOPEFULLY ADDING TO THEIR

RANKS, JENNIFER WISHON, CBN

NEWS.

FINALLY TONIGHT, DAREDEVIL

SKYDIVER FELIX BAUMGARTNER

PLUNGED MORE THAN 24 MILES

SUNDAY.

THE AUSTRIAN EXTREME

SHATTERED THE SOUND BARRIER

HITTING SPEEDS MORE THAN 833

MILES PER HOUR IN THE FREE FALL.

BAUMGARTNER'S DECENT LASTED JUST

OVER FOUR MINUTES AND LANDED ON

HIS FEET IN THE NEW MEXICO

DESERT AND LIFTED HIS ARMS IN

VICTORY AS PEOPLE CHEERED HIM

ON.

WHEN YOU ARE UP THERE, YOU

ARE SO HUMBLE.

IT IS ALL ABOUT COMING HOME.

THE 43-YEAR-OLD PARATROOPER

HAS MORE THAN 2400 JUMPS BEHIND

HIM.

YOU COULD SEE THE CURVATURE

OF THE EARTH.

YOU HAVE JUMPED OUT OF

PLANES?

I DID IT TWICE IN COLLEGE.

IT IS A THRILL OF A LIFETIME.

I DON'T KNOW IF I WOULD DO IT
