The Brody File: The Last Days

This week on the Brody File: Elections, Elephants and Excitement! The ultimate election countdown is on and there’s a new face in the race, Hurricane Sandy. We look at the storm’s impact. Plus, THE Senate race to watch: McCaskill vs. Akin ... Read Transcript


David: THIS WEEK ON

"THE BRODY FILE, "

EVERYBODY TAKE A DEEP

BREATH.

JUST A FEW DAYS NOW UNTIL

"ELECTION DAY, AND "

HURRICANE SANDY HAS MADE

HER ENTRANCE INTO THE

PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

WE'RE GOING TO

IMMEDIATE MAKE SURE THAT

SHE GETS THE HELP SHE

"NEEDS HERE, TO GET THIS "

ALL BACK TOGETHER AGAIN.

David: HOW WILL

SANDY AFFECT THE RACE?

"PLUS, WHAT IS UP WITH THIS"

BIZARRE OBAMA AD.

THE FIRST TIME

SHOULDN'T BE WITH JUST

ANYBODY.

"David: ALSO, "

"ONE-ON-ONE WITH TODD AKIN,"

WHO WAS LEFT FOR DEAD BY

THE MEDIA AND HIS OWN

PARTY.

I'M GOING FORWARD WITH

"THE MISSION, AND I PLAN, "

"BY THE GRACE OF GOD, TO "

REPLACE CLAIRE MCCASKILL.

David: AND THERE IS

AN ELEPHANT IN THE HOUSE.

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE.

"ELLEN, WHOA, THAT'S "

GREAT.

David: HE'S ALWAYS

OFF THE RECORD.

"ELEPHANTS, ELECTION, AND "

"EXCITEMENT, IT'S ALL ON "

"THE BRODY FILE, NEXT. "

¶¶¶

"David: AND WELCOME, "

"EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER "

"EDITION OF ""THE BRODY "

"FILE."" "

WE'RE JUST A FEW DAYS

"AWAY, NOW, FROM ELECTION "

"DAY, AND THIS WEEK WE HAD "

A NEW LAST-SECOND ENTRY

INTO THE RACE.

HER NAME IS SANDY.

"THAT'S RIGHT, THIS PAST "

WEEK MITT ROMNEY AND

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAVE NOT

BEEN SO MUCH BATTLING

THEMSELVES BUT THE

COMPAIGNS WERE SLOWED DOWN

BY HURRICANE SANDY.

THE HUGE STORM ALONG THE

EAST COAST WREAKED HAVOC

"FOR MILLIONS, CAUSING "

"WIDESPREAD FLOODING, LOSS "

"OF POWER TO MILLIONS, AND "

IT MADE FOR JUST A

DOWNRIGHT MESS.

IT ALSO LED TO BOTH

COMPAIGNS BAGGING THE

STOMP SPEECHES FOR A

COUPLE OF DAYS AND TRYING

TO PROJECT LEADERSHIP

DURING THE CRISIS.

ROMNEY SPENT HIS TIME

"VOLUNTEERING IN OHIO, "

PACKING UP RELIEF SUPPLIES

FOR VICTIMS AND TRYING TO

SOUND PRESIDENTIAL.

I'VE HAD THE CHANCE TO

SPEAK WITH SOME OF THE

GOVERNORS IN THE AFFECTED

"AREAS, AND THEY TALKED "

ABOUT A LOT OF PEOPLE

HAVING HARD TIMES.

"David: MEANWHILE, "

"THE PRESIDENT LOOKED, "

"WELL, PRESIDENTIAL. "

DOING WHAT PRESIDENTS DO

IN A TIME OF CRISIS.

HE VISITED PARTS OF THE

COUNTRY THAT WERE HEAVILY

HIT BY SANDY.

President Obama: WE

ARE HERE FOR YOU.

WE WILL FOLLOW UP TO MAKE

SURE YOU GET ALL OF THE

HELP YOU NEED UNTIL YOU

REBUILD.

David: THE PRESIDENT

ENDED UP TAKING MORE TIME

AF THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL THAN

"MITT ROMNEY, AND CANCELLED"

AN IMPORTANT DAY OF EVENTS

IN OHIO THIS PAST

WEDNESDAY.

CLEARLY THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN

IS BANKING ON THE PEOPLE

SEEING HIM AS A STRONG

COMMANDER IN CHIEF DURING

"THIS CRISIS, AND HOPES IT "

WILL TRANSLATE WELL ON

ELECTION DAY.

"THEN AGAIN, IT IS A VERY "

CLOSE ELECTION AND HE DID

MISS SOME KEY TIME ON THE

"CAMPAIGN TRAIL, SO THE "

STRATEGY CAN BACK FILE.

"AND NOW, CAN WE JUST TALK "

ABOUT NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR

CHRIS CHRISTIE.

OY-GEVALT.

THIS GUY IS A PIECE OF

WORK.

"THE NO-NONSENSE, "

STRAIGHT-SHOOTING CHRISTIE

MAY HAVE BEEN GIVING THE

ROMNEY CAMPAIGN A FEW

PROBLEMS WHEN SHE TALKED

ABOUT WHAT A GREAT JOB

PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS DOING

AND HOW HE LED DURING THE

CRISIS.

"HERE IS THAT, ALONG WITH "

SOME OTHER CHRIS CHRISTIE

IN YOUR FACE CLASSIC

MOMENTS.

IT'S VERY DIFFICULT.

I SPOKE WITH THE PRESIDENT

"AGAIN, RIGHT BEFORE I "

"LEFT, AND HE IS "

DETERMINED -- HE KNOWS

THAT NEW JERSEY HAS TAKEN

THE BIGGEST HIT OF THE

"STATES HERE, AND HE IS "

DETERMINED TO WORK WITH US

TO MAKE SURE WE BUILD THE

"THINGS WE NEED TO REBUILD,"

I'M GRATEFUL FOR THE

PARTNERSHIP.

I DON'T GIVE A

(bleep) ABOUT ELECTION

DAY.

"AT THE MOMENT, I'VE GOT "

"MUCH BIGGER FISH TO FRY, "

AND SO DO THE PEOPLE OF

THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY.

David: THAT IS A

"LITTLE CHRISTY UNPLUGGED, "

AND YOU CAN SEE WHAT SOME

LOVE HIM AND OTHERS CAN'T

STAND HIM.

"GET READY, BECAUSE THIS "

BIG GUY IS THINKING OF

RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN

THE NEAR FUTURE.

WE'VE HEARD THAT THE OBAMA

CAMPAIGN SUPPOSEDLY WILL

HAVE AN ADVANTAGE WHEN IT

COMES TO EARLY VOTERS.

"WELL, GUESS WHAT? "

"NEWS FLASH, WE'VE GOT SOME"

INTERESTING NEWS FOR YOU.

"SO GET READY, AND BEFORE I"

"TELL YOU, I WANT YOU TO "

"TAKE A DEEP BREATH, SO "

LET'S DO A LITTLE NOSTRIL

BREATHING.

YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE

"THE THUMB, PLACE IT ON TO "

YOUR RIGHT NOSTRIL AND

CLOSE THE AIRWAY OFF

COMPLETELY.

INHALE UP THROUGH THE

LEFT.

"David: ALL RIGHT, DO "

YOU FEEL BETTER?

"WELL, LOOK AT THESE "

NUMBERS.

IT TURNS OUT THAT ROMNEY

IS OUT IN FRONT WITH EARLY

VOTERS.

LOOK AT THE LATEST POLL.

"IT'S FROM GALLOP, A "

RESPECTED ORGANIZATION.

IT SHOWS THAT SO FAR

ROMNEY CURRENTLY LEADS

"OBAMA AMONG EARLY VOTERS, "

52% TO 45%.

"BY THE WAY, SO FAR ROUGHLY"

15% OF REGISTERED VOTERS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY HAVE

ACTUALLY CAST THEIR

BALLOTS ALREADY.

A CRITICAL STATE FOR

ROMNEY IS OHIO.

HE REALLY NEEDS THE

BUCKEYE STATE IN ORDER TO

WIN THE ELECTION.

HERE IS THE PROBLEM FOR

"HIM, THOUGH: THE LATEST "

POLLING SHOWS THAT THE

PRESIDENT IS UP FIVE

"POINTS, 50 TO 45 IN OHIO "

OVER ROMNEY.

"HOWEVER, THE REAL ISSUE IS"

THAT ROMNEY'S LEAD AMONG

"WHITE VOTERS, JUST FIVE "

"POINTS IN OHIO, 50 TO 45. "

THAT EXPLAINS WHY ROMNEY

IS HAVING A HARDER TIME

"THERE, BECAUSE IN VIRGINIA"

"AND FLORIDA, ROMNEY LEADS "

AMONG WHITE VOTERS IN

"THOSE STATES BY 22 POINTS,"

59-37.

ROMNEY HAS BEEN HURT IN

OHIO BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT

HAS DONE A VERY GOOD JOB

OF HIGHLIGHTING THE FACT

THAT ROMNEY WAS AGAINST

"THE BIG AUTO BAILOUT, AND "

THAT OBAMA WAS FOR IT.

"SO IN ESSENCE, OBAMA IS "

ARGUING HE SAVED THE

AMERICAN CAR INDUSTRY.

"MEANWHILE, THE OBAMA "

CAMPAIGN IS TAKING SOME

SERIOUS HITS FROM

PRO-FAMILY GROUPS FOR THIS

BIZARRE AD THAT COMPARES

VOTING FOR THE FIRST TIME

TO SEX.

"YEAH, THIS HAS GOT TO BE "

ONE OF THE WEIRDEST AND

CREEPIEST CAMPAIGN ADS.

HERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF

THAT.

YOUR FIRST TIME

SHOULDN'T BE WITH JUST

ANYBODY.

YOU WANT TO DO IT WITH

A GREAT GUY.

IT SHOULD BE WITH A GUY

WITH BEAUTIFUL -- SOMEONE

WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT AND

UNDERSTANDS WOMEN.

David: DEFINITELY A

TOP ENTRY FOR THE OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

A TOP ENTRY FOR THE SENATE

RACE OF THE YEAR WOULD BE

BETWEEN REPUBLICAN TODD

AKIN AND CLAIRE MCCASKILL

IN MISSOURI.

EVEN AFTER AKIN'S COMMENT

"ABOUT, QUOTE,""LEGITIMATE "

"RAPE, AND HOW A WOMAN'S "

BODY HAS A WAY OF SHUTTING

"ALL THAT DOWN."" "

McCASKILL IS GOING ON

THE AIR WAVES WITH THIS.

TODD AKIN IS SCARY.

TODD'S STATEMENT BY

LEGITIMATE RAPE IS BEYOND

THE PALE.

IF IT IS A LEGITIMATE

"RAPE, THE FEMALE BODY HAS "

WAYS TO TRY TO SHUT THAT

WHOLE THING DOWN.

HE HAS NO IDEA HOW IT

"WORKS, AND HE WANTS TO "

LEGISLATE ON IT.

BIG-LEAGUE REPUBLICANS

ARE TRYING TO GET AKIN TO

"LEAVE THE RACE, BUT HE HAS"

NOT.

AND JOHN TALKED TO HIM.

THE BIG STORY IS THE

U.S. SENATE RACE BETWEEN

"INCUMBENT SENATOR, CLAIRE "

"MCCASKILL, AND HER "

"CHALLENGER, REPUBLICAN "

TODD AKIN.

WE SAT DOWN WITH HER

CHALLENGER FOR AN EXTENDED

"AMOUNT OF TIME, WHERE HE "

TOLD ME ABOUT HIS DECISION

"TO STAY IN THE RACE, HIS "

"FAITH, AND HIS FIGHT FOR "

WHAT HE CALLS TRADITIONAL

VALUES.

IT MAY BE THAT SOME OF

THE LEADERSHIP IN THE

"SENATE, ON THE REPUBLICAN "

"SIDE, WOULD BE COMFORTABLE"

WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE MORE

MODERATE.

"AND BECAUSE I'M NOT, "

APPARENTLY IT IS MORE

IMPORTANT TO THEM TO GET

MODERATE THAN MAYBE TAKING

OVER CONTROL OF THE

SENATE.

THE PEOPLE OF MISSOURI

HAVE SPOKEN.

IT IS AN ELECTION.

IT IS NOT AN APPOINTMENT

PROCESS.

I'M GOING FORWARD WITH THE

MISSION.

"AND I PLAN, BY THE GRACE "

"OF GOD, TO REPLACE CLAIRE "

MCCASKILL.

THE AMERICAN DREAM AND THE

FREEDOM THAT GOD BLESSES

US WITH IS AT RISK.

AND THOSE PEOPLE HAVE

GATHERED TO US.

AND WHILE WE'RE A SMALL

"ARMY, I BELIEVE THAT WE "

ARE AN AFFECTIVE AND

"EFFICIENT ARMY, AND I "

BELIEVE WE'RE GOING TO GET

THE JOB DONE.

"Reporter: DAVID, YOU "

CAN SEE MUCH MORE OF MY

INTERVIEW WITH TODD AKIN

"IF YOU CHECK OUT MY BLOG, "

BELTWAY BUZZ.

I'LL SEND IT BACK TO YOU.

"David: THANKS, JOHN. "

ANOTHER REPUBLICAN WHO HAS

GOTTEN INTO HOT WATER WITH

COMMENTS ABOUT RAPE IS

RICHARD MOURDOCK.

HE IS RUNNING FOR SENATE

IN INDIANA.

DURING HIS DEBATE AGAINST

"HIS DEMOCRAT OPPONENT, "

THIS IS WHAT HE SAID WHEN

ASKED ABOUT HIS POSITION

ON ABORTION.

I CAME TO REALIZE LIFE

IS THAT GIFT FROM GOD.

I THINK EVEN WHEN LIFE

BEGINS IN THAT HORRIBLE

"SITUATION OF RAPE, THAT IT"

IS SOMETHING THAT GOD

INTENDED TO HAPPEN.

David: THE MEDIA

WENT WILD AFTER THOSE

"COMMENTS, IMPLYING THAT "

MOURDOCK WAS SAYING THAT

IT IS GOD'S INTENTION FOR

WOMEN TO BE RAPED.

"HEY, COME ON, CLEARLY "

MOURDOCK WAS TRYING TO

MAKE THE LARGER POINT THAT

GOD IS SOVEREIGN AND IN

"CONTROL OF ALL EVENTS, AND"

HE CAN USE HORRIBLE

SITUATIONS LIKE THAT AND

ACTUALLY USE IT FOR GOOD.

SO HOW DID MITT ROMNEY

RESPOND TO ALL OF THIS?

THAT LEADS US TO THIS

WEEK'S BRODY FILE

COMMENTARY.

IN HIS DESIRE NOT TO GET

CAUGHT UP IN THE

CONTROVERSY OVER ALL OF

"THIS, THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN "

"SAID, QUOTE,""GOVERNOR "

ROMNEY DISAGREES WITH

RICHARD MOURDOCK'S

COMMENTS AND THEY DO NOT

"REFLECT HIS VIEWS."" "

HOW INTERESTING WITHIN

HOURS OF MOURDOCK'S

"COMMENTS, THE ROMNEY "

CAMPAIGN WAS SO QUICK TO

DISMISS WHAT HE SAID OUT

OF HAND.

"THE TRUTH IS, THE CAMPAIGN"

REALLY WANTS NOTHING TO DO

WITH ANYTHING SURROUNDING

A PRO-LIFE ISSUE.

THEY DON'T WANT TO BE

STEREOTYPED AS RIGHT WING.

BUT WOULDN'T THIS HAVE

BEEN A GOOD TIME FOR

ROMNEY TO POINT OUT THE

FACT THAT ALL LIFE COMES

FROM GOD.

DID HE HAVE TO DISMISS

MOURDOCK SO QUICKLY.

COULDN'T THE CAMPAIGN MAKE

A DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE

WAY MOURDOCK DELIVERED

THOSE COMMENTS AND HIS

TRUE INTENTION.

WHAT THIS SHOULD SHOW

"CONSERVATIVE, PRO-LIFE "

"CONSERVATIVES, THAT ROMNEY"

DOESN'T WANT TO WADE INTO

THE PRO-LIFE ISSUE.

HE WILL DO WHAT HE HAS TO

"DO WHAT HE HAS TO DO, BUT "

IT IS NOT AN ISSUE HE WILL

STICK HIS NECK OUT ON.

ROMNEY SEEMS MORE

CONCERNED FROM ATTRACTING

VOTERS FROM INDEPENDENT

"WOMEN IN KEY SWING STATES,"

RATHER THAN TAKING A TRUE

PRINCIPLE STAND ON THE

ABORTION ISSUE.

HIS PAST PRO-CHOICE VIEWS

ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO

HAUNT ROMNEY UNTIL

PRO-LIFE CONSERVATIVES

START TO SEE HIM TRULY

FIGHT FOR THEIR CAUSE.

"UNTIL THEN, THE JURY IS "

STILL OUT.

"ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME "

"BACK, OSAMA BIN LADEN "

DONATING TO PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN?

I THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD.

WE'LL EXPLAIN.

"AND LATER, GETTING "

CATHOLICS TO THE POLLS IN

THE KEY SWING KEY STATES.

HOW ONE CONSERVATIVE GROUP

IS TRYING TO MAKE A LAST

"SECOND, POLITICAL ALTER "

CALL.

WE'RE BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: WELCOME BACK

"TO ""THE BRODY FILE."" "

THERE ARE CERTAIN AMAZING

SIGNS THAT HAVE BEEN

UNEARTHED THROUGHOUT THE

YEARS.

YOU'VE GOT THE DEAD SEA

"SCROLLS, AND THE REMAINS "

OF THE TITANIC.

BUT WE'VE NOW FOUND

SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN

MISSING FOR A LONG TIME

THIS ELECTION SEASON.

IT IS PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

AGENDA FOR HIS SECOND

TERM.

THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN HAS

FOUND IT JUST A COUPLE OF

"WEEKS BEFORE THE ELECTION,"

"OH, BY THE WAY. "

THEY'RE CALLING IT A PLAN

FOR JOBS AND MIDDLE CLASS

SECURITY.

AND THEY'VE BEEN

DISTRIBUTING IT AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

IT'S A SLICK 20-PAGE

BROCHURE THAT THE CAMPAIGN

SAYS OUTLINES THE

PRESIDENT'S AGENDA THE

NEXT FOUR YEARS.

"BUT YOU LOOK INSIDE, AND "

IT PRETTY MUCH JUST

REGURGITATES A LOT OF THE

SAME STUFF HE SAID IN THE

"FIRST TERM, LIKE RAISING "

"TAXES ON THE MILLIONAIRES,"

"HIRING MORE TEACHERS, AND "

INVESTING IN RENEWABLE

"ENERGY, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. "

THE BRODY FILE IS STILL

SEARCHING FOR NEW STUFF.

WE'LL LET YOU KNOW IF WE

FIND ANYTHING.

"IN THE MEANTIME, YOU MIGHT"

NOT WANT TO HOLD YOUR

BREATH.

ONE PERSON WHO IS SIMPLY

FED UP WITH THIS PRESIDENT

IS AUTHOR KATE OBENSHANE.

SHE HAS WRITTEN A NEW BOOK

"THE DIVIDER, THEFRAUD OF{18:19:36:06"

"POLITICAL CHANGE."" "

HOW OBAMA'S PROMISE TO

UNIT AMERICA AS FAILED.

AT LEAST THAT'S HER VIEW.

SHE SAYS HE HAS LED

AMERICA DOWN A PATH OF

BITTER DIVISIVENESS.

AND SHE STOPPED BY OUR

STUDIOS TO HAVE HER SAY.

WHAT I DID WITH THIS

BOOK IS I WENT BACK TO THE

LOFTY PROMISES OF HOPE AND

"CHANGE, AND BARACK OBAMA "

WAS GOING TO BE THE GUY

"WHO UNITED US, TRANSCENDED"

POLITICS AS USUAL.

GONE IS THE PETTY

BICKERING.

THAT WAS THE REASON WHY HE

WAS ELECTED.

"THERE IS NO EXPERTISE, NO "

"DIPLOMATIC SKILLS, "

NOTHING.

"AND ALMOST IMMEDIATELY, "

"ALMOST FROM DAY ONE, HE "

"SOUGHT TO DIVIDE US, TO "

REALLY TEAR THE VERY

FABRIC OF OUR NATION APART

SO HE COULD PIT AMERICANS

"AGAINST ONE ANOTHER, AND "

GET THROUGH WHAT I AND A

LOT OF AMERICANS CONSIDER

TO BE A VERY RADICAL

AGENDA.

David: TALK ABOUT

THIS PITTING AGAINST EACH

"OTHER, BECAUSE THIS IS "

CLASS WARFARE.

HE HAS BEEN DOING THIS

AGAINST THE GET-GO.

HE HAS.

"WAR AGAINST WOMEN, RIPPING"

"US APART ON RELIGION, AND "

ISSUE AFTER ISSUE.

BUT THE CLASS WARFARE I

THINK IS THE MOST STARK.

WHAT HE HAS SAID FROM THE

BEGINNING ABOUT

REPUBLICANS IS THAT

"THEY'RE HOSTAGE-TAKERS, "

AND THEY SUPPORT

MILLIONAIRES AND

BILLIONAIRES OVER THE

NEEDS OF CHILDREN WITH

AUTISM AND DOWN SYNDROME.

WHAT HE IS DOING IS

IMPUNING THE INTEGRITY AND

THE MOTIVE OF ANYONE WHO

DISAGREES WITH THEM IN

ORDER TO SILENCE THEM.

IF HE CAN CONVINCE THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT THE

MOTIVES OF HIS OPPONENTS

"ARE DEPLORABLE, NOBODY "

WILL LISTEN TO THEM.

David: ONE MORE

BARACK OBAMA-RELATED

STORY.

THIS COULD HAVE EASILY

QUALIFIED FOR THE OY-VEY

"MOMENT OF THE WEEK, BUT, "

"INSTEAD, WE DECIDED TO "

"PLACE IT IN THE ""B"" BLOCK."

CHECK IT OUT.

"HERE IS THE PICTURE, THE "

FOLKS AT THE CONSERVATIVE

"SITE, WORLD NET DAILY, "

THEY DECIDED TO SEND

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN

A DONATION FROM SOMEONE

NAMED OSAMA BIN LADEN ON

"JIHAD WAY IN ABBATABAD, "

CALIFORNIA.

GUESS WHAT?

"IT WENT THROUGH, DESPITE "

THE FAKE INFORMATION.

APPARENTLY THE OBAMA

CAMPAIGN DOESN'T HAVE A

WAY TO VERIFY THAT THE

ACTUAL INDIVIDUAL IS

LOCATED IN THE PLACE

"PROVIDED, LIKE CALIFORNIA."

"OH, BY THE WAY, THE FOLKS "

AT WORLD NET DAILY USED A

"PAKISTANI I.P. ADDRESS, "

THEREFORE MAKING IT CLEAR

THAT THIS WAS COMING FROM

A FOREIGN SITE.

"AND, OH, BY THE WAY, IT IS"

ILLEGAL FOR COMPAIGNS TO

ACCEPT FOREIGN

CONTRIBUTIONS.

"ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME "

"BACK, AN ELEPHANT INVASION"

"ON ""THE BRODY FILE"" SET. "

"GATHER AROUND, KIDS. "

IT IS A PATRIOTIC ELLA THE

ELEPHANT STAMPEDE.

NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

"BACK TO ""THE BRODY FILE,"" "

EVERYBODY.

WHEN YOU THINK OF

"ELEPHANTS, WHAT COMES TO "

MIND?

"I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE THE "

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

"MAYBE DUMBO, HOW ABOUT THE"

ELEPHANT MAN?

"WE HERE AT ""THE BRODY "

"FILE"" THINK OF ELLIS, "

"ELLIS, THE ELEPHANT. "

HE IS THE STAR OF THE

LATEST CHILDREN'S BOOK

WRITTEN BY CALLISTA

GINGRICH.

"IT IS CALLED ""THE LAND OF "

"ELLIS' PRIDE."" "

THE FIRST BOOK IN THE

SERIES WAS CALLED SWEET

"LAND OF LIBERTY, AND IT "

WAS A BEST-SELLER.

"CALLISTA, AND YES, ELLIS, "

"PAID A VISIT TO ""THE BRODY"

"FILE"" STUDIOS TO TALK "

ABOUT THIS PATRIOTIC

ADVENTURE.

IT SEEMS TO ME LIKE THE

KIDS NOWADAYS REALLY NEED

MORE OF A HEAVY DOSE OF

THIS THAN EVER BEFORE IN

OUR COUNTRY.

THAT'S ABSOLUTELY

RIGHT.

"UNFORTUNATELY, MANY OF OUR"

CHILDREN ARE FAILING TO

LEARN OUR AMERICAN

HISTORY.

AND RECENT SURVEYS ARE

SOBERING.

"FOR EXAMPLE, A MAJORITY OF"

FOURTH GRADERS CANNOT

IDENTIFY JAMESTOWN AS OUR

FIRST ENGLISH SETTLEMENT.

MOST FOURTH GRADERS DON'T

KNOW WHY THE PILGRIMS LEFT

ENGLAND.

AND FEWER THAN A THIRD OF

ALL EIGHTH GRADERS CANNOT

EXPLAIN WHY THE COLONIES

FOUGHT ENGLAND DURING THE

REVOLUTIONARY WAR.

SO WE HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF

CATCHING UP TO DO.

WE REALLY OWE IT TO OUR

CHILDREN TO GIVE THEM THE

TOOLS SO THEY CAN BEGIN TO

UNDERSTAND WHY THIS IS

SUCH A SPECIAL PLACE AND

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE

AMERICAN.

David: HOW COULD YOU

"NOT BRING WITH YOU, ELLIS,"

THE ELEPHANT.

I KNOW HE IS ABOUT TO COME

OUT HERE SHORTLY.

"OH, LOOK AT THAT. "

HERE HE IS.

"HE DOESN'T TALK, RIGHT? "

HE DOESN'T.

THAT'S THE MAGIC OF ELLIS.

David: HE'S ALWAYS

OFF THE RECORD.

SO TO SPEAK.

David: HOW DID YOU

"ENVISION -- WHY ELLIS, THE"

ELEPHANT AND NOT MATT THE

MONKEY?

I KNEW I NEEDED A

UNIQUE AND INTERESTING

CHARACTER TO CAPTURE THE

HEARTS AND MINDS OF SMALL

CHILDREN.

I THOUGHT OF BUNNIES AND

"HIPPOS AND GIRAFFES, BUT "

"IN THE END, I COULDN'T "

RESIST THIS ADORABLE

"LITTLE ELEPHANT, ELLIS, "

THE ELEPHANT.

THAT IS CALLISTA

"GINGRICH HERE ON ""THE "

"BRODY FILE."" "

FROM ELLIS TO

"EVANGELICALS, TIME TO "

CRANK UP OUR SOCIAL MEDIA

SAVVY EVANGELICAL APP.

¶¶¶

"David: YOU KNOW, THE "

CATHOLIC VOTE IN THIS

ELECTION IS GOING TO BE

"HUGE, BUT ESPECIALLY SO IN"

CERTAIN STATES LIKE

WISCONSIN AND

PENNSYLVANIA.

THE POLLS IN THE KEYSTONE

STATE ARE VERY TIGHT.

AND WHAT WAS ONCE THOUGHT

"AS AN OBAMA BLUE STATE, IT"

CAN ACTUALLY SWING TOWARDS

ROMNEY.

YOU NEVER KNOW.

THAT HAS THE CATHOLIC

ASSOCIATION ALL AMPED UP

AND READY TO GO.

THEY HAVE IDENTIFIED

"NEARLY 600,000 CATHOLICS "

IN PENNSYLVANIA THAT ARE

EITHER UNDECIDED OR WHAT

ARE CONSIDERED

SOFT-LEANING SUPPORTERS OF

OBAMA.

THEY'RE CALLING THAT AND

E-MAILING THAT MULTIPLE

TIMES BETWEEN NOW AND

ELECTION DAY.

"IN ADDITION, THEIR VOTER "

SCORE CARDS ARE GOING OUT

TO 6 MILLION UNDECIDED

CATHOLIC VOTED IN THE

"OTHER KEY SWING STATES, "

"NEW HAMPSHIRE, IOWA, "

"COLORADO, WISCONSIN, "

"VIRGINIA, ALL OF THEM. "

AND WHILE THE CATHOLIC

"VOTE IS UP FOR GRABS, THE "

"JEWISH VOTE, BY THE WAY, "

SOLIDLY IN PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S CORNER.

THERE IS A SHOCK.

THE LATEST POLLS SHOW THAT

THE PRESIDENT LEADS ROMNEY

70% TO 25% AMONG JEWISH

VOTERS.

"HOWEVER, THAT SUPPORT IS "

ACTUALLY DOWN FROM 2008

WHEN OBAMA BESTED McCAIN

78% TO 21%.

"ALSO, HERE IS AN "

INTERESTING TIDBIT: A

SEPARATE POLL SHOWS THAT

JEWS OVER IN ISRAEL

"SUPPORT ROMNEY, NOT OBAMA,"

BY THE WIDE MARGIN OF 57%

TO 22%.

THE PRESIDENT DOES LEAD

"AMONG ISRAELI ARABS, NO "

"SURPRISE THERE, 45 DO 15%."

"DOWN IN FLORIDA, CHECK OUT"

"THE ANTI-OBAMA SIGNS, PUT "

UP BY THE REPUBLICAN

JEWISH COALITION.

"THEY SAY, OBAMA, OY-VEY, "

HAD ENOUGH?

THEY'RE TRYING TO CONVINCE

JEWS THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA

IS NOT A FRIEND OF ISRAEL.

TWO PEOPLE THAT DON'T NEED

ANY CONVINCING OF THAT ARE

JAY AND PHYLLIS DOWN IN

"BOCA, BOCA RATON. "

YOU MIGHT REMEMBER THEM

FROM LAST WEEK WHEN WE

PLAYED A LITTLE ROMNEY

BINGO AT THEIR HOME IN

BOCA.

AFTERWARDS WE WENT OVER TO

THE COUCH AND HAD A

DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT IT

IS LIKE TO BE IN THE

"MINORITY, IN OTHER WORDS, "

A CONSERVATIVE JEW IN A

WORLD FILLED WITH LIBERAL

JEWS.

I THINK THERE IS

DEFINITELY TENSION BECAUSE

PEOPLE FEEL VERY STRONG ON

"EITHER SIDE, AND IT CAUSES"

"TENSION AMONG FRIENDS, AND"

YOU FIND THAT YOU END UP

BEING MORE FRIENDLY WITH

PEOPLE THAT THINK THE WAY

YOU DO BECAUSE IT IS JUST

EASIER.

David: TALK TO ME

ABOUT WHAT IT IS THAT --

WHY CONSERVATIVE JEWISH

"FOLKS LIKE THE TEA PARTY, "

AND ARE THERE MORE OF THEM

THAN WE THINK THERE ARE

OUT THERE?

"YES, YES, DEFINITELY "

MORE.

IT'S GROWING.

OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF

"YEARS, I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW"

IT HAS GROWN.

WE WERE AT A MEETING NOT

"TOO LONG AGO, AND THE ROOM"

WAS FILLED.

"THERE MUST HAVE BEEN 700, "

750 CONSERVATIVE JEWS.

David: SOME

ENLIGHTENING PERSPECTIVE

FROM JAY AND PHYLLIS DOWN

IN BOCA.

WE'RE BACK IN A MOMENT

WITH A COMMENT FROM JOSEPH

BIDEN THAT DEFINITELY

MAKES HIM THE PRESIDENT OF

THE OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE

WEEK CLUB.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

"BACK TO ""THE BRODY FILE,"" "

WHERE POLITICS PLUS HUMOR

EQUALS COMMERCE.

NOW IT IS TIME TO WAVE

"GOOD-BYE TO ALL OF YOU, "

BUT BEFORE WE BID YOU

"ADIEU, IT IS TIME FOR THE "

OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

¶¶¶

David: JOSEPH BIDEN

"MAY BE VICE PRESIDENT, BUT"

HE IS DEFINITELY PRESIDENT

OF OUR OY-VEY MOMENT OF

THE WEEK SEGMENT.

HE GIVES US SO MUCH GOOD

MATERIAL.

IT'S JUST NOT FAIR.

"WELL, HE IS AT IT AGAIN. "

THIS TIME HE MADE THE

FOLLOWING COMMENTS IN

OHIO.

LET ME REPEAT THAT -- HE

MADE THE FOLLOW COMMENTS

IN OHIO!

"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, "

THIS IS A GUY WHO IS

RUNNING ALL OF THE ADS

HERE IN IOWA SAYING HE IS

GOING TO GET TOUGH ON

CHINA.

"HOLD ON, UNCLE JOE IS "

"IN OHIO, OR DID HE JUST "

SAY IOWA.

CAN WE REWIND THE TAPE.

THIS IS A GUY WHO IS

RUNNING ALL OF THE ADS IN

IOWA.

David: HE SAID IOWA.

OY-GEVALT.

THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME

UNCLE JOE HAS GOTTEN HIS

WHEREABOUTS WRONG.

EARLIER THIS YEAR HE TOLD

"A VIRGINIA CROWD, "

"QUOTE,""WITH YOU WE CAN "

"WIN"" -- "

NORTH CAROLINA.

David: IF YOU AND

THE PRESIDENT LOSE IN

"NOVEMBER, WE'RE GOING TO "

"MISS YOU TERRIBLY ON ""THE "

"BRODY FILE."" "

THAT DOES IT FOR US.

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK

AFTER THE ELECTION.

"UNTIL THEN, GOD BLESS. "

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
