The Brody File: The Final Days

The Brody File heads to the key swing state of Florida as the presidential election heads into its final days. We take an in-depth look at the swing states in play plus we enjoy a good game of Florida BINGO between Romney and Obama. Read Transcript


David: THIS WEEK ON

"THE BRODY FILE," LESS THAN

TWO WEEKS TO GO BEFORE

ELECTION DAY.

WE BREAK DOWN WHO WON THE

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.

MR. PRESIDENT, AMERICA

HAS NOT DICTATED TO OTHER

NATIONS.

WE HAVE FREED OTHER NATIONS

FROM DICTATORS.

David: ALSO, WE GO

AROUND TO THE SWING STATES

OF AMERICA TO GET THE PULSE

OF THE COUNTRY.

PLUS, THE HEAD OF PLANNED

PARENTHOOD GOES AFTER MITT

ROMNEY.

LISTEN, THIS IS A TOUGH

THING, WHEN MITT ROMNEY

CHANGES HIS POSITION EVERY

OTHER DAY.

David: ALSO, HOW A

FRIENDLY GAME OF ROMNEY-

ROMNEY-OBAMA BINGO COULD

PREDICT THE PRESIDENTIAL

RACE.

47%.

I GOT THAT.

ANOTHER ROMNEY.

David: AND 10-YEAR-OLD

REPORTER ARIELLE GOES

ONE-ON-ONE WITH NEWT

GINGRICH, TALKING ABOUT

CHINA AND WHY THE YOUNGER,

NEXT GENERATION SHOULD

CARE.

SO, CHINA, I KNOW IT IS A

BIG PART OF OUR DEBT.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS,

SPEAKER GINGRICH?

David: WE ARE IN SUNNY

SUNNY FLORIDA,

SWING STATE FOR THIS

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

"THE BRODY FILE" IS NEXT.

♪♪♪

David: AND WELCOME TO

BEAUTIFUL AND SUNNY

FLORIDA.

WE'RE ON LOCATION, DON'T

WORRY, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

SEE "THE BRODY FILE"

FROLICKING THROUGH THE OCEAN

WAVES IN A BATHING SUIT,

BECAUSE, AFTER ALL, THIS IS

A FAMILY SHOW.

"THE BRODY FILE" ON LOCATION

IN FLORIDA BECAUSE THIS

STATE IS CRUCIAL TO THE

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS MAP.

29 ELECTORAL VOTES UP FOR

GRABS.

THE MOST OF ANY SWING STATE

OUT THERE.

IF MITT ROMNEY IS GOING TO

WIN THE PRESIDENCY, HE

PRETTY MUCH NEEDS TO WIN

HERE IN FLORIDA.

OTHERWISE IT MAY BE NEAR

IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO PULL

IT OFF.

YOU KNOW, "THE BRODY FILE"

HAS BEEN ALL OVER THE SWING

STATES ACROSS AMERICA, AND

SO HERE IS A BROADER LOOK AT

THE ELECTORAL MAP.

THIS ELECTION IS AS CLOSE AS

THEY COME, AND THE

PRESIDENTIAL RACE WILL BOIL

DOWN TO NINE KEY STATES.

THEY CROSS THE COUNTRY.

BEGINNING IN THE WEST WITH

COLORADO AND NEVADA.

MOVING TO THE HEARTLAND,

THERE IS IOWA, WISCONSIN,

AND OHIO.

EN DOWN SOUTH, TO VIRGINIA,

NORTH CAROLINA, AND

FLORIDA.

AND ENDING UP WITH NEW

HAMPSHIRE IN THE NORTHEAST.

COLORADO POLLSTER, FLOYD,

HAS SEEN A DROP IN

ENTHUSIASM FOR PRESIDENT

OBAMA SINCE 2008.

WHETHER IT IS HISPANIC OR

WOMEN, HE IS CONCERNED ABOUT

THE LEVEL OF TURNOUT.

I'M FRANKLY EXPECTEDLY A

SLIGHTLY DIMINISHED TURN

OUT.

David: WHEN IT COMES

TO SWING STATES, OHIO OFTEN

PLAYS A KEY ROLE, AND BOTH

CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN

SPENDING LOTS OF TIME

THERE.

AFTER ALL, THE BUCKEYE STATE

HAS CHOSEN THE WINNER OF

EACH PRESIDENTIAL RACE,

EXCEPT FOR ONE, IN THE LAST

65 YEARS.

FOR OBAMA OR ROMNEY TO WIN

THE PRESIDENCY, THEY'RE

GOING TO NEED 270 ELECTORAL

VOTES.

THAT MAKES FLORIDA A PRIME

GOAL BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE

SWING STATES, IT IS THE

BIGGEST PRIZE WITH 29.

SUNSHINE STATE VOTERS ARE

SPLIT, HOWEVER, AND POLL

MARGINS ARE RAZOR THIN.

I'M AN OBAMA GUY BECAUSE

HE HAS ROLLED UP HIS SLEEVES

AND CONNECTED WITH ME.

HE KNOWS HOW I'VE LIVED, HOW

I FEEL.pó

WE'RE SUPPORTING MITT

ROMNEY, CERTAINLY, AND THE

REASON WHY IS WE HAD

PROMISES FOUR YEARS AGO, AND

NONE OF THOSE PROMISES HAVE

BEEN KEPT.

David: ORGANIZATION ON

THE GROUND COULD PROVIDE Aúú

SLIGHT EDGE TO PRESIDENTúú

OBAMA.úú

OBAMA HAS 75 TO 80

OFFICES ORGANIZED ACROSS THEú

STATE, ALL FOCUSED ONúú

GETTING OUT THE VOTE.ú

I THINK ROMNEY HAS 20, MAYBE

20.

David: AND BOTH

COMPAIGNS ARE DEPENDENT ON

THEIR CAMPAIGN ADS.

GOVERNOR ROMNEY'S PLAN

WILL CUT TAXES FOR PEOPLE AT

THE VERY TOP.

TOO MANY AMERICANS ARE

STRUGGLING TO FIND WORK IN

TODAY'S ECONOMY.

David: SO FAR CLOSE TO

A BILLION DOLLARS HAVE BEEN

SPENT IN JUST THESE NINE

STATES.

AND VOTERS SHOULD PLAN ON AN

AVALANCHE OF SPOTS.

THEN IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS,

IT WILL BE OVER, UNTIL THE

NEXT CAMPAIGN STARTS.

THIS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

HAS BEEN DEFINED BY THE BIG

DEBATES.

THERE HAVE BEEN THREE OF

THEM.

THEY ARE ALL OVER NOW, BUT

THE LAST ONE HERE IN FLORIDA

WAS A GOOD ONE.

IT WAS EARLIER THIS WEEK IN

BOCCA RATON, FLORIDA.

HERE ARE A FEW HIGHLIGHTS.

President Obama: YOU'RE

STRATEGY, PREVIOUSLY, HAS

BEEN ONE THAT IS ALL OVER

THE MAP AND IS NOT DESIGNED

TO KEEP AMERICANS SAFE OR TO

BUILD ON THE OPPORTUNITIES

THAT EXIST IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

MARKERS MY STRATEGY IS

PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD, TO

GO AFTER THE BAD GUYS, TO

MAKE SURE WE DO OUR BEST TO

INTERRUPT THEM, TO KILL

THEM, TO TAKE THEM OUT OF

THE PICTURE.

BUT MY STRATEGY IS BROADER

THAN THAT.

THAT'S IMPORTANT, OF COURSE,

BUT THE KEY WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO PURSUE IS A PATHWAY

TO GET THE MUSLIM WORLD TO

BE ABLE TO REJECT EXTREMISM

ON THEIR OWN.

President Obama: HE

PRAISED PRESIDENT BUSH AND

DICK CHENEY WITH GOOD

JUDGMENT.

AND TAKING US BACK TO THOSE

STRATEGIES THAT GOT US INTO

THIS MESS IS NOT THE WAY

WE'RE GOING TO MAINTAIN

LEADERSHIP IN THE 21st

CENTURY.

WHAT WE'VE SEEN OVER THE

LAST FOUR YEARS I DON'T WANT

TO SEE OVER THE NEXT FOUR

YEARS.

WE'RE NINE MILLION JOBS

SHORT IN THE UNEMPLOYMENT.

David: WHO BENEFITS

THE DEBATES THE MOST?

THAT LEADS US TO THIS WEEK'S

BRODY FILE COMMENTARY.

WHILE PRESIDENT OBAMA

HANDLED HIMSELF PRETTY WELL

IN THE DEBATE IN BOCA RATON,

FLORIDA, THAT WAS NOT THE

CASE IN DENVER, AND THAT

REALLY SET THE TONE FOR WHAT

HAPPENED DURING THESE THREE

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES.

THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS

MITT ROMNEY WON THESE

DEBATES, AND HE STARTED IN

DENVER.

IT CAST THE NARRATIVE THAT

MITT ROMNEY WAS READY, NOT

ONLY TO GO TOE TO TOE WITH

PRESIDENT OBAMA, BUT THAT

HE, INDEED, COULD BE

COMMANDER IN CHIEF.

BUT PEOPLE WILL SAY, WAIT A

MINUTE, PRESIDENT OBAMA HAD

TWO SOLID PERFORMANCES IN

DEBATES TWO AND THREE.

BUT THE TRAIN HAD ALREADY

LEFT THE STATION.

THERE WAS SUCH A DISCREPANCY

IN DEBATE NUMBER ONE BETWEEN

MITT ROMNEY'S PERFORMANCE

AND PRESIDENT OBAMA'S ROUGH

PERFORMANCE, AND IT LEFT A

LOT OF PEOPLE RE-THINKING.

SO ROMNEY WON THESE

DEBATES.

THAT'S WHAT MATTERS.

THE QUESTION NOW BECOMES,

WILL IT BE ENOUGH TO GET HIM

OVER THE TOP IN NOVEMBER?

WE'RE GOING TO FIND OUT VERY

SHORTLY.

SPEAKING OF THE PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION, ONE OF THE BIG

ISSUES IS MEDICARE, AND

MEDICARE IS REALLY BIG DOWN

HERE IN FLORIDA WITH ALL OF

THE SENIOR CITIZENS.

THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN HAS

BASICALLY SAID THAT ROMNEY'S

CHANGES TO MEDICARE ARE

GOING TO BE REALLY BAD FOR

SENIOR CITIZENS.

WELL, WHAT IS THE ACTUAL

PLAN?

WHAT IS ROMNEY'S PLAN?

GUESS WHAT, WE'RE GOING TO

GO IN THE WEEDS LIKE WE

NORMALLY DO HERE ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

FIRST OF ALL, CURRENT

SENIORS OR THOSE GETTING

CLOSE TO RETIREMENT WOULDN'T

BE AFFECTED.

FOR FUTURE RETIREES,

ROMNEY'S PLAN IS TO GIVE

THOSE SENIORS A FIXED AMOUNT

OF MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT

WHERE THEY COULD GO BUY A

MEDICAL INSURANCE PLAN OR

BUY THE TRADITIONAL MEDICARE

PLAN.

THE PRIVATE PLANS WOULD HAVE

TO OFFER AT LEAST WHAT

MEDICARE OFFERS.

IN OTHER WORDS, MEDICARE

WOULD COMPETE AGAINST THOSE

PLANS.

THEN SENIORS WOULD HAVE A

CHOICE: USING THAT FIXED

AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY GET

FROM THE GOVERNMENT, THEY

COULD PAY FOR A PLAN THAT IS

CHEAPER THAN THE MONEY THEY

RECEIVE FROM THE GOVERNMENT,

AND THEN USE THAT MONEY TO

PAY OTHER MEDICAL EXPENSES,

OR THEY COULD CHOOSE A PLAN

THAT COSTS MORE THAN WHAT

THE GOVERNMENT GIVES THEM,

BUT THEN THEY WOULD HAVE TO

PAY THE DIFFERENCE.

AND THAT COULD INCLUDE

TRADITIONAL MEDICARE.

WHILE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT

OF MITT ROMNEY, HE GOT REAL

GOOD NEWS IN FLORIDA.

THE NEWSPAPER, THE ORLANDO

CENTINAL HAS ENDORSED HIM.

THAT IS A BIG DEAL BECAUSE

THEY ENDORSED OBAMA IN

2008.

AND THEY'RE WIDELY READ IN

THE CORRIDOR BETWEEN ORLANDO

AND TAMPA.

THERE ARE A LOT OF KEY

INDEPENDENT VOTERS UP

THERE.

IT WAS MORE OF A SLAM

AGAINST THE PRESIDENT.

HERE IS WHAT THE EDITORIAL

BOARD SAID, QUOTE,"WE HAVE

LITTLE CONFIDENCE THAT OBAMA

WOULD BE MORE SUCCESSFUL

MANAGING THE ECONOMY AND THE

BUDGET IN THE NEXT FOUR

YEARS.

FOR THAT REASON.

THOUGH WE ENDORSED HIM IN

2008, WE ARE RECOMMENDING

ROMNEY IN THIS RACE."

ONE THING WE'VE LEARNED FROM

BOTH OF THESE CANDIDATES IS

THEY ARE BOTH EXTREMELY

SMART.

BUT DID YOU KNOW THEY ARE

ALSO VERY FUNNY.

THEY BOTH APPEARED AT THE AL

SMITH DINNER, AN ANNUAL

DINNER THAT HAS BEEN GOING

ON FOR DECADES.

I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU, THIS

IS A CHANCE FOR BARACK OBAMA

AND MITT ROMNEY,

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES, TO

GET TOGETHER AND KIND OF

ROAST EACH OTHER.

THEY CRACKED A FEW

ONE-LINERS.

WE LIKE TO CALL IT THE

BARACK AND MITT COMEDY

HOUR.

♪♪♪

THE CAMPAIGN CAN REQUIRE

A LOT OF WARDROBE CHANGES.

WE HAVE BLUEJEANS IN THE

MORNING, PERHAPS, AND SUITS

FOR A LUNCH FUNDRAISER, AND

SPORT COAT FOR DINNER.

IT IS NICE TO FINALLY RELAX

AND WEAR WHY ANN AND I WEAR

AROUND THE HOUSE.

EARLIER TODAY I WENT

SHOPPING AT SOME STORES IN

MIDTOWN.

I UNDERSTAND THAT GOVERNOR

ROMNEY WENT SHOPPING FOR

SOME STORES IN MIDTOWN.

PEOPLE SEEM TO BE CURIOUS

HOW WE PREPARE FOR THE

DEBATES.

FIRST, REFRAME FROM ALCOHOL

FOR 65 YEARS.

USED TO LOVE WALKING

THROUGH CENTRAL PARK, LOVE

TO GO TO OLD YANKEE STADIUM,

THE HOUSE THAT RUTH BUILT,

ALTHOUGH HE REALLY DID NOT

BUILD THAT.

David: A COUPLE OF

COMEDIANS WHO CHEAT ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

WHO DO KIDS IN THIS COUNTRY

GO FOR?

WE'RE TALKING KIDS 18 AND

UNDER.

ACCORDING TO SCHOLASTIC,

KIDS ARE GOING FOR OBAMA.

65% TO 45%.

YOU HAD TO BE 18 YEARS OR

YOUNGER AND CAST YOUR BALLOT

ON THE WEBSITE.

THE SCHOLASTIC STUDENT VOTE

HAS PICKED EVERY

PRESIDENTIAL WINNER, EXCEPT

FOR TWO, SINCE 1948.

BEFORE WE HEAD TO BREAK,

SPEAKING OF KIDS, IT IS TIME

FOR OUR NEXT GENERATION

SEGMENT WITH 10-YEAR-OLD

ARIELLE.

WE SENT HER OUT IN THE WORLD

TO START TO LOOK AT ISSUES

THAT AFFECT THE YOUNGER,

NEXT GENERATION.

HI, EVERYBODY.

YES, IT IS ME AGAIN.

STILL INTERVIEWING FORMER

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, NEWT

GINGRICH.

THIS WEEK'S TOPIC IS CHINA.

I DON'T GET IT, WHAT'S THE

DEAL?

SO, CHINA, I KNOW IT IS A

BIG PART OF OUR DEBT.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS,

SPEAKER GINGRICH?

FIRST OF ALL, CHINA IS A

BIG COUNTRY.

IT'S AN IMPORTANT COUNTRY.

IT'S NOT THEIR FAULT WE'RE

IN DEBT.

THEY BOUGHT OUR BONDS

BECAUSE WE WERE FOOLISH AND

WE RAN UP A HUGE DEBT AND

HAD TO SELL IT TO SOMEBODY.

SO I REALLY BLAME US FOR

HAVING THE CHINESE FILL A

LOT OUR DEBT.

I THINK IF WE WENT TO A

BALANCED BUDGET AND PAID OUR

DEBT BACK AND GOT THAT MONEY

BACK FROM CHINA, WE WOULD BE

A LOT SAFER AND BETTER OFF

IN THE FUTURE.

THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

THEY WILL BE TAKING OVER THE

U.S.

THEY OWN ENOUGH OF OUR

DEBT THEY CAN DICTATE TO US

WHAT WE CAN DO.

SPEAKER GINGRICH IS

ALWAYS TEACHING ME SOMETHING

I JUST DIDN'T KNOW.

THIS IS ARIELLE SIGNING

OFF.

SEE YOU NEXT TIME.

David: WHEN WE COME

BACK, WHAT HAPPENED IF THE

PRESIDENTIAL RACE ENDS IN A

TIE?

WE EXPLORE THAT POSSIBILITY

AND OTHERS, NEXT.

David: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE BRODY FILE."

WE'RE IN SUNNY FLORIDA, LESS

THAN TWO WEEKS AWAY FROM

ELECTION DAY.

SO WHO IS GOING TO WIN THE

ELECTION?

WELL, GUESS WHAT, IF YOU ASK

10 DIFFERENT POLLSTERS,

YOU'RE PROBABLY GOING TO GET

10 DIFFERENT ANSWERS.

HOWEVER, FOR THE FIRST TIME,

THE RESPECTED REAL, CLEAR

POLITICS WEBSITE HAS MITT

ROMNEY LEADING IN THE

ELECTORAL COLLEGE RACE.

YOU NEED 270 ELECTORAL VOTES

TO WIN, RIGHT NOW ROMNEY IS

PROJECTED TO WIN 206, AND

THE PRESIDENT HAS 201, AND

ACCORDING TO REAL CLEAR

POLITICS, THERE ARE ABOUT

131 UP FOR GRABS.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THIS RACE

ENDS UP IN A STATISTICAL

TIE, 269 TO 269, OY-GEVALT.

PUT ANOTHER WAY, ARE WE

GOING TO SEE A REPLAY OF

2000, WHEN VOTE COUNTERS IN

FLORIDA WERE STARING

INTENTLY AT THESE HANGING

CHADS.

REMEMBER THIS PICTURE?

TIME TO BREAK IT ALL DOWN

WITH THE FAIREST ANSWER OF

THEM ALL.

TIME FOR JENNY AND THE "B"

BLOCK, BACK IN D.C., TO TELL

US ABOUT ALL OF THE

TIE-BREAKING POSSIBILITIES.

YES, WE ALL REMEMBER THE

PREGNANT CHADS IN FLORIDA.

I'M JOINED BY BRIAN DARLING,

SENIOR FOR GOVERNMENT

STUDIES AT HERITAGE

FOUNDATION, TO TALK ABOUT

WHAT COULD BE CRAZY

SCENARIOS ON ELECTION

NIGHT.

BRIAN, THANKS FOR BEING WITH

US.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME ON.

THESE CANDIDATES HAVE

SAID THIS RACE IS GOING TO

BE CLOSE FROM THE VERY

BEGINNING, AND BOY, WERE

THEY RIGHT.

COULD WE HAVE A CANDIDATE

THAT WINS THE POPULAR VOTE

BUT DOES NOT END UP BEING

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES?

YES.

IT HAS HAPPENED IN THE

PAST.

IN ELECTORAL COLLEGES SET

UP, IT IS WINNER TAKE ALL,

WITH THE EXCEPTION OF TWO

STATES, MAINE AND NEBRASKA.

SO IT IS POSSIBLE FOR IT TO

HAPPEN, AND IT HAS HAPPENED,

WHERE YOU HAVE CANDIDATES

LOSE THE POPULAR VOTE BUT

WIN THE ELECTION.

ARE WE IN A SITUATION

WHERE WE COULD SEE A TIE ON

THE ELECTION NIGHT OR A TIE

IN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE?

IT WOULD HAPPEN IF WE HAD

269 ELECTORAL VOTES FOR

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND 269

ELECTORAL VOTES FOR GOVERNOR

MITT ROMNEY GOVERNOR MITT

ROMNEY.

ROMNEY.

AND STATE BY STATE WOULD

VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES.

SO MITT ROMNEY WOULD WIN IF

THE HOUSE WERE TO DETERMINE

WHO THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES WERE TO BE.

YOU LOOK AT THE SYSTEM FOR

VICE PRESIDENT, THAT'S A

ROLE OF THE SENATE.

THE VICE PRESIDENT IS

ACTUALLY THE PRESIDENT OF

THE SENATE.

IT WOULD LOOK LIKE JOSEPH

BIDEN WOULD HAVE A GOOD

CHANCE OF WINNING THAT

SENATE ELECTION FOR VICE

PRESIDENT.

SO THERE IS A SCENARIO WHERE

YOU HAVE PRESIDENT MITT

ROMNEY AND VICE PRESIDENT

JOSEPH BIDEN.

THERE SEEMS TO BE, EVERY

FOUR YEARS, THIS SHROWD OF

MYSTERY THAT DEVELOPS THIS

ELECTORAL COLLEGE.

ULTIMATELY, YOU'RE NOT

VOTING FOR PRESIDENT.

YOU'RE VOTING FOR SOMEBODY

TO GO TO THE ELECTORAL

COLLEGE TO REFLECT YOUR WILL

AND VOTE FOR PRESIDENT.

SO WE'RE VOTING FOR

ELECTORS.

I'VE MET AN ELECTORS, BUT

MOST AMERICANS HAVE NOT.

MAYBE OUR ELECTORS SHOULD GO

ON TOUR TO INTRODUCE

THEMSELVES TO THE VOTERS.

WE MIGHT WANT TO MEET

THEM.

WHAT ARE THE TOP STATES

YOU ARE WATCHING?

FLORIDA AND OHIO, BUT I'M

GOING TO BE WATCHING NEW

HAMPSHIRE, BECAUSE IF NEW

HAMPSHIRE COMES IN EARLY FOR

MITT ROMNEY, IT WILL BE A

LONG NIGHT FOR PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO

SEE IF PENNSYLVANIA IS

CLOSE, OR IF IT IS CALLED

VERY EARLY IN THE EVENING

FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA.

BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE A

WARNING SIGN FOR THE ROMNEY

CAMPAIGN THAT THEY MAY BE IN

TROUBLE.

BRIAN DARLING, THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

THANKS, JENNY.

WE'RE GOING TO BRING YOU

BACK A LITTLE SUNSHINE FROM

FLORIDA.

WHEN WE COME BACK, IT IS

TIME TO PLAY A LITTLE

ROMNEY-OBAMA BINGO

FLORIDA-STYLE.

CHECK THIS OUT.

WE'RE BACK IN A MOMENT.

.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE,"

FROM SUNNY FLORIDA, THE HOME

OF HANGING CHADS,

ALLIGATORS, AND THE WORLD

CHAMPION MIAMI HEAT.

THIS IS THE FAITH PORTION OF

OUR SHOW WHERE I READ THE

BOOK OF GENESIS FROM START

TO FINISH -- WELL, WE'RE NOT

GOING TO REALLY DO THAT.

IT'S NOT A BAD IDEA.

INSTEAD, LET'S CRANK UP THE

EVANGELICAL APP.

ONE OF THE KEY QUESTIONS IN

THIS ELECTION IS HOW MUCH

WILL EVANGELICALS MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THIS

ELECTION?

WELL, HAVE A LOOK AT SOME OF

THIS, THE FOLKS THAT FOCUS

ON THE FAMILY ARE HOPING AND

PRAYING THAT PEOPLE OF FAITH

ARE GOING TO FLOOD VOTING

BOOTHS AROUND THE COUNTRY.

THEY'RE OUT WITH THEIR

CITIZEN-LINKED VOTING

GUIDES.

THEY SAY VOTING IS BOTH A

RIGHT AND A PRIVILEGE.

SO THEY HAVE LINKS UP ON

THEIR WEBSITE WHERE YOU CAN

GET VOTING GUIDES FOR EACH

STATE.

EVANGELIST BILLY GRAHAM IS

MAKING SURE THAT CHRISTIANS

GET OUT AND VOTE.

HE HAS TAKEN AN AD OUT IN

THE WALL STREET, AND IN IT

HE SAYS, QUOTE,"WE'RE AT A

CROSSROADS, AND THERE ARE

PROFOUND MORAL ISSUES AT

STATE.

I STRONGLY URGE YOU TO VOTE

FOR CANDIDATES WHO SUPPORT

THE BIBLICAL DEFINITION OF

MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND A

WOMAN, PROTECT THE SANCTITY

OF LIFE AND DEFEND OUR

RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS.

I BELIEVE IT IS VITALLY

IMPORTANT THAT WE CAST OUR

BALLOTS FOR CANDIDATES WHO

BASE THEIR PRINCIPLES ON

BIBLICAL ISSUES AND SUPPORT

THE NATION OF ISRAEL."

AND WE SHOULD POINT OUT THAT

BILLY GRAHAM'S ORGANIZATION

HAS REMOVED MORMONISM AS A

CULT LISTED ON THEIR

WEBSITE.

WE THINK THAT IS PROBABLY

BECAUSE BILLY GRAHAM AND

FRANKLIN GRAHAM DON'T HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH ROMNEY'S

MORMONISM WHEN IT COMES TO

HIM RUNNING FOR PRESIDENCY.

HERE ARE SOME RESPONSES,

MARILYN MILLER SAYS IT IS A

CULT BY DEFINITION OF THE

TRUE BIBLICAL FAITH.

THAT REALLY SADDENS ME.

AND EDWARD SAYS, "I'M GLAD

HE TOOK IT OFF BECAUSE IT IS

NOT A CULT."

EVANGELICALS ARE MAKING NEWS

OUT IN MISSOURI.

DOZENS OF PASTORS ARE COMING

TO THE DEFENSE OF TODD

AIKINS.

HE SAID THAT WOMEN'S BODIES

CAN PREVENT PREGNANCY IN THE

CASE OF LEGITIMATE RAPE.

HE IS RUNNING FOR SENATE IN

MISSOURI.

AFTER THOSE COMMENTS, MITT

ROMNEY AND THE REPUBLIC

REPUBLICARNS TRIED TO GET

HIM TO QUIT THE RACE, BUT HE

DIDN'T.

AND THE POLLS ARE

TIGHTENING, AND THE RACE IS

CONSIDERED A TOSS-UP, HE IS

RUNNING THIS AD AGAINST HIS

OPPONENT, CLAIRE MCCASKILL.

MY 6-SECOND MISTAKE IS

WELL KNOWN, BUT CLAIRE

MCCASKILL'S SIX YEAR RECORD

IS NOT WELL KNOWN.

SHE PASSED THE OBAMA VOTE TO

CUT MEDICARE BY OVER

$700 MILLION.

SHE VOTED POR OBAMA'S

STIMULUS SPINDING AND RAISED

OUR TAXES, BUT DIDN'T PAY

HER OWN.

WHAT IS THIS ELECTION

ABOUT?

SAVING OUR COUNTRY.

I'M TODD AKIN, AND I APPROVE

THIS MESSAGE.

David: WE'LL SEE IF

AKIN CAN PULL IT OFF IN

MISSOURI.

THIS WHOLE AKIN CONTROVERSY

HAS GIVEN THE DEMOCRATS A

CHANCE TO GO AFTER THE

REPUBLICANS WHEN IT COMES TO

THE WAR ON WOMEN AND ALL OF

THE REPRODUCTIVE CHOICES

THEY SAY THERE BE BAD FOR

THE WOMEN.

MITT ROMNEY HAS COME UNDER

CRITICISM FROM THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION AND PLANNED

PARENTHOOD BECAUSE HE WANTS

TO CUT OFF FUNDING TO

PLANNED PARENTHOOD BECAUSE

THEY PERFORM ABORTIONS.

WELL, I TALKED TO THE

PRESIDENT OF PLANNED

PARENTHOOD ABOUT ROMNEY AND

WOMEN'S HEALTH CARE AFTER

ONE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL

DEBATES.

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT MITT

ROMNEY REALLY DOES WANT TO,

IN ESSENCE, DENY WOMEN

SPECIFIC CONTRACEPTION?

IS THAT WHAT YOU ALL DO

BELIEVE?

THAT'S THE POSITION HE

HAS TAKEN.

HE HAS SAID THAT CLEARLY --

HE HAS SAID THE EXACT

OPPOSITE.

TONIGHT HE SAID THE EXACT

OPPOSITE.

HEY, IT IS A TOUGH THING.

WHEN MITT ROMNEY CHANGES HIS

POSITION EVERY OTHER DAY.

ALL I KNOW IS AS A WOMAN, I

CAN'T COUNT ON HIM AS A

PRESIDENT TO STAND UP ON

WOMEN.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU

ARE IN EQUAL PAY FOR WOMEN,

IF YOU WANT TO GET RID OF

PLANNED PARENTHOOD, AND YOU

WANT TO OVERTURN ROE VS.

WADE.

THEY WANT TO KEEP EMPLOYERS

FROM PROVIDING BIRTH CONTROL

COVERAGE TO WOMEN -- THOSE

ARE CLEAR.

David: WE SHOULD POINT

OUT THAT OBAMA LEADS ROMNEY

AMONG WOMEN BY EIGHT POINTS

OR SO, HOWEVER, THAT IS DOWN

QUITE CONSIDERABLY.

BEFORE THE PRESIDENT WAS

LEADING ROMNEY BY A LOT MORE

THAN JUST EIGHT POINTS.

SPEAKING OF ROMNEY AND OBAMA

AND THE ELECTION, WE'RE HERE

IN FLORIDA, WE'VE GOT TO

FIGURE OUT WHO IS GOING TO

WIN THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE

OVER ALL, AND WHAT BETTER

WAY TO DO IT IN FLORIDA IS

TO PLAY A LITTLE

ROMNEY-OBAMA BINGO.

WE SENT BRODY FILE PRODUCER

DANA OUT TO FIND SOME EXPERT

PLAYERS.

WE DECIDED TO HAVE ONE

REPRESENT OBAMA AND ONE

REPRESENT ROMNEY.

A BEAUTIFUL COUPLE.

INSTEAD OF NUMBERS, WE TRIED

SOMETHING A LITTLE

DIFFERENT.

I'M READY FOR BINGO.

ALL RIGHT.

PHYLLIS, JAY, HERE WE GO.

I HOPE I WIN.

OKAY.

THE FIRST WORD IS

CHARACTER.

OH, I HAVE IT.

JOB CREATOR.

JOB CREATOR.

47%.

I GOT THAT.

STOCK MARKET.

STOCK MARKET.

IT'S DOWN 200 TODAY.

JIMMY CARTER.

I GOT JIMMY CARTER.

A GREAT MAN.

[LAUGHTER]

HERE'S A GOOD ONE,

FLIP-FLOP.

I'VE GOT THE FLIP-FLOP.

I'VE ONLY GOT TWO MORE TO

GO.

99%.

BINGO!

YAY!

THE REPUBLICANS WON.

I WANT A RECOUNT.

I WANT A RECOUNT.

David: THAT'S OUR VERY

UNSCIENTIFIC PREDICTION HERE

ON "THE BRODY FILE."

BACK IN A MOMENT WITH AN

OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK

THAT IS JUST UNCOOL HERE AT

THE BEACH.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE"

FROM BEAUTIFUL SOUTH

FLORIDA, WHERE THEY HAVE

BEAUTIFUL WEATHER AND

BAGELS.

BAGELS MAKES ME THINK OF

MY JEWISH HERITAGE.

IT IS TIME FOR THE OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

WE DECIDED TO GO WITH A

BEACH THEME, SINCE WE'RE

DOWN HERE IN FLORIDA.

THERE IT IS, MITT ROMNEY

FROM EARLIER THIS WEEK HERE

IN FLORIDA.

HE CAME OUT TO CHEER ON HIS

STAFFERS WHO TOOK ON THE

PRESS IN A GAME OF FLAG

FOOTBALL.

YOU MAY BE WONDERING, WHAT'S

THE BIG DAY?

WHERE IS THE OY-VEY HERE?

LET'S GET A CLOSE-UP OF

GOVERNOR ROMNEY'S FEET.

NO SANDALS, NO BARE FEET.

HE IS GOING WITH THE SOCKS

AND SNEAKER LOOK ON THE

BEACH.

OY-VEY?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

THIS IS NOT A FASHION

STATEMENT, FOLKS.

THIS REALLY COULD COST

ROMNEY THE ELECTION WITH THE

18 TO 21-YEAR-OLD CROWD.

I GUESS WE FORGIVE HIM.

IT IS THE CHRISTIAN THING TO

DO.

ROMNEY MAY NOT HAVE BEEN

COOL THERE, BUT HE HAS BEEN

COOL AS A CUCUMBER IN THE

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES DURING

THE MONTH OF OCTOBER.

THAT DOES IT THIS WEEK FROM

SUNNY FLORIDA.

WE'RE BACK NEXT WEEK, AND

UNTIL THEN, GOD BLESS AND

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
