WELCOME, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, TO THIS SPECIAL

ELECTION NIGHT EDITION OF THE

700 CLUB.

A STAGGERING $2 BILLION ON

ADVERTISING BY CANDIDATES IN

THIS RACE.

UNPRECEDENTED AMOUNT OF MONEY.

AND, YOU KNOW, WHEN IT'S ALL

SAID AND DONE, THE SITUATION IN

THE HOUSE STAYS THE SAME.

THE REPUBLICANS STAY IN CHARGE.

THE REPUBLICANS HAVE LOST AN

OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE THE SENATESEATS THAT SEEMED TO BE UP FOR

GRABS, GONE OUT OF THEIR REACH

AND THEY LOST SEVERAL SEATS.

ONE IN INDIANA THEY HAD IS

LOST, THE SEAT OF SNOW.

THAT'S GONE TO THE DEMOCRATS.

YOU LOOK AT OTHER INSTANCES

THAT WERE IN THEIR GRASP, TODD

AKIN IN MISSOURI WAS BARELY

BEATEN BY CLAIRE MCCASKILL.

THE PRESIDENCY IS STILL UP --

THEY CALLED NORTH CAROLINA FORROMNEY.

WHAT'S LEFT?

WELL, YOU'VE GOT THE DEMOCRATS,

OBAMA HAS WON PENNSYLVANIA, NEW

HAMPSHIRE, WISCONSIN ANDMICHIGAN.

OHIO, VIRGINIA, AND FLORIDA ARE

STILL TOO CLOSE TO CALL.

OH, WE MAY HAVE TO GO INTO A

RECOUNT IN FLORIDA.

IT IS SO CLOSE.

WE HAVE SOME TERRIFIC PEOPLE

FOR YOU TONIGHT THAT ARE GOING

TO BE SHARING THEIR THOUGHTS AS

TO WHAT'S GOING ON.

BARNES IS GOING TO BE GIVING US

HIS INSIGHT, THE WALL STREET

JOURNAL, HIS INSIGHTS.

WE HAVE DAVE RIGHT NOW.

LET'S GO TO OUR CHIEF POLITICAL

REPORTER.

AND, DAVE, CAN YOU MAKE ANY

SENSE OF WHAT'S HAPPENING SO

FAR?

WELL, PAT, I'VE GOT TO TELL

YOU.

OVERALL THEY WERE HOPING FOR A

CAMPAIGN CELEBRATION HERETONIGHT, AND RIGHT NOW

EVERYBODY IS ON PINS AND

NEEDLES.

THIS HAS KIND OF TURNED INTO A

GLORIFIED COCKTAIL PARTY.

A LOT OF FOLKS IN BUSINESS

SUITS ARE HAVING SOME HORS

D'OEUVRES AND VERY, VERY

CONCERNED BECAUSE IN ESSENCE,

ROMNEY HAS TO RUN THE TABLEHERE.

YOU TALKED ABOUT IT, OHIO,

FLORIDA, VIRGINIA, COLORADO,

YOU CAN GO ON AND ON.

THERE IS SOME SERIOUS TENSIONIN THE AIR HERE.

AND, SO, WE SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

BUT, LOOK, I THINK THERE ARE A

LOT OF FOLKS ALREADY RUNNING

MITT ROMNEY'S POLITICAL

OBITUARY AND I'M NOT QUITE SURE

WE'RE AT THAT POINT YET, BUT I

CAN TELL YOU THIS.

AT THE BEGINNING OF THE NIGHT

WHEN I WAS TALKING TO THE

ROMNEY CAMPAIGN, THEY WERE ALL

EXCITED ABOUT HOW INDEPENDENTS

WERE BREAKING FOR ROMNEY AND

THE FACT THAT THEY WERE DOING

WELL IN THE DENVER SUBURBS.

NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN THAT HAS

STARTED TO REVERSE TO A DEGREE,

NOT NECESSARILY WITH

INDEPENDENTS, BUT AROUND SOME

OF THE SUBURBAN AREAS, DENVER

AND OTHER PLACES.

SO, THERE HAS BEEN MORE OF AN

AWKWARD SILENCE FROM THE ROMNEY

CAMPAIGN HERE IN THE LAST HOUR

OR SO BECAUSE THEY ARE CLEARLY

CONCERNED AND NOT AS GIDDY AS

THEY WERE AT ABOUT 7 O'CLOCK

EASTERN OR SO WHEN THOSE

INITIAL NUMBERS WERE COMING IN.

IT IS APE WAIT AND SEE

SITUATION HERE.

I CAN TELL YOU WHEN THE FIRST

CHEER WE'VE SEEN IN ABOUT 2-1/2

HOURS HERE WAS WHEN THEY CALLED

IT FOR MITT ROMNEY IN NORTH

CAROLINA.

BUT OTHER THAN THAT, PAT, IT IS

HORS D'OEUVRES AND SILENCE

HERE IN BOSTON.

ROMNEY PLAYED ROPE-A-DOPE AS

HE WAS BEING POUNDED BY OBAMA.

A CROOK, AN OUT SOURCER, A

PREDATOR, YOU NAME IT.

HE JUST TOOK IT.

HE WAS MARSHALING HIS RESOURCES.

THEY'VE COME BACK, BUT WAS IT

TOO LATE?

ALL THIS BUSINESS ABOUT WOMEN'S

REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS, THEY WERE

UNDER THE RADAR ON THAT ONE,

BUT THEY SEEM TO HAVE SCORED

THE WOMEN.

PAT, I THINK YOU HIT THE

NAIL ON THE HEAD.

I THINK MITT ROMNEY WAS DEFINED

BY THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN ALL THE

WAY BACK IN APRIL, MAY AND JUNE.

RIGHT THEN, PAT, THEY -- THEY

BEING THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN --

DECIDED TO DROP TENS OF

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN CAMPAIGN

ADS TO GO AFTER ROMNEY.

AND BASICALLY IDENTIFY HIM

DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS.

THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN SAID, YOU

KNOW WHAT, WE'RE GOING TO HOLD

OUR FIRE LIKE YOU SAID, WE'RE

GOING TO WAIT FOR THE FALL.

GUESS WHAT, THE FALL CAME AND

OVERALL THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN WAS

STILL OUTSPENT.

NOT WITH SUPER P-A-CS.

WE HAD THE SUPER P-A-CS.

ROMNEY OUTSPENT OBAMA.

CAMPAIGN TO CAMPAIGN, ROMNEY'S

CAMPAIGN WAS NEVER ABLE TO

RECOVER FROM THE PERSONA THAT

THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN WAS ABLE TO

DEFINE ROMNEY AS.

I THINK THAT'S BEEN A HUGE

PROBLEM AND HAS STUCK WITH HIMAND HE HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET

OUT OF THE RUT.

HE WAS FINISHED BY THE TIME

APRIL OR MAY ROLLED AROUND.

I MEAN, THEY WENT AFTER HIM

HARD AND HE NEVER RECOVERED.

SO, ROMNEY IS NOT OUT OF IT YET.

THERE IS STILL A GAME AND KARL

ROVE IS SAYING TONIGHT, WELL,

YOU JUST WATCH THE VOTES START

COMING IN IN OHIO.

IT LOOKS LIKE WE MAY BE HEADING

FOR A RECOUNT IN FLORIDA IF

IT'S AS CLOSE AS IT LOOKS LIKE.

BUT, DAVID, WE APPRECIATE IT.

YOU KNOW, TELL THE PEOPLE UP

THERE NOT TO BE TOO DOWN HEART

ENED.

IT'S STILL MORE TO GO.

WE MAY NOT KNOW WHO THE WINNER

IS --

I'LL GRAB AN HORS D'OEUVRE.

GET A GOOD HORS D'OEUVRE.

I HOPE THEY'RE SERVING

SOMETHING GOOD.

>JOINING US NOW WITH MORE

FROM OUR WASHINGTON BUREAU IS

RALPH REID OF THE FAITH AND

FAVORITE COALITION.

RALPH, YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO

TURNOUT ALL THE VOLTERS IN

OHIO, ALL THE BATTLE GROUNDSTATES.

WHAT HAPPENED?

OH, WE DID, PAT.

THERE'S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.

YOU LOOK AT THE EXIT POLLS.

IT'S PRELIMINARY.

WE REALLY NEED TO WAIT UNTIL

THIS VOTE IS IN.

WE'RE DOING OUR OWN

POST-ELECTION SURVEY.I WILL RELEASE THOSE RESULTS IN

THE MORNING.

BUT JUST BASED ON WHAT LITTLE

WE HAVE IN FLORIDA, OHIO,

VIRGINIA, ALL THE STATES THAT

WILL DECIDE THE OUTCOME OF THIS

ELECTION, EVANGELICALS WERE A

LARGER SHARE OF THE ELECTORATE

THAN THEY'VE EVER BEEN.THEY TURNED OUT IN LARGER RAW

NUMBERS.

AND GET THIS, PAT, IN YOUR HOME

STATE OF VIRGINIA,

EVANGELICALS, AGAIN, ACCORDINGTO THE EARLY EXIT POLLS VOTED

79% FOR MITT ROMNEY.

THAT'S 1% MORE THAN THEY VOTED

FOR GEORGE W. BUSH IN 2004 WHO

WAS A FELLOW EVANGELICAL.

BUT, LOOK, PAT, YOU CAN'T HAVE

HISPANICS ALONG THE I-4

CORRIDOR WALK IN BY THE TENS OF

THOUSANDS IN OSEOLA COUNTY,

ORANGE COUNTY AND VOTE STRAIGHT

DEMOCRAT TICKETS.

TONIGHT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS

LOSING ORANGE BY 60,000, THE

OTHER BY 20,000.

THEY'RE LOSING HILLSBORO COUNTY

TONIGHT, PAT.

THIS IS A BELLWETHER COUNTY IN

FLORIDA BY 30,000 VOTES.

THAT'S NOT BECAUSE OF

EVANGELICALS.

YOU KNOW, I REALLY LOVE

HISPANICS, I LOVE LATINOS.

THEY SHARE THE SAME SOCIAL

VIEWS AS THE REPUBLICANS.WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE

REPUBLICANS THAT WANTS TO DRIVE

THOSE PEOPLE AWAY?

THEY'RE NOT REACHING OUT TO

THEM.

WELL, I THINK THE GOOD

NEWS/BAD NEWS FOR THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY IS THAT, FIRST

OF ALL, WHEN IT COMES TO

HISPANICS, THERE IS AN AWFUL

LOT OF SHARED COMMONALITY OFVALUES.

HISPANICS TEND TO BE DEEPLY

RELIGIOUS, EITHER FAITHFUL

CATHOLICS OR EVANGELICALS.

THEY'RE PRO FAMILY, THEY'RE PRO

MARRIAGE, THEY'RE VERYPATRIOTIC.

THEY SERVE IN THE MILITARY IN

LARGER NUMBERS.

THEY'RE VERY ENTREPRENEURIAL.

BUT IN RECENT YEARS, PAT, THE

ISSUE OF IMMIGRATION, SECURING

THE BORDER, WHAT TO DO WITH

THOSE WHO ARE HERE CURRENTLY

ILLEGALLY HAS VEXED THIS PARTY.

AND IF BARACK OBAMA WINS

TONIGHT -- AND YOU CORRECTLY

POINTED OUT IT'S WAY TOO EARLY

TO CALL THIS ELECTION -- I

AGREE WITH CARL, BY THE WAY.

I THINK ROMNEY HAS A VERY GOOD

SHOT IN OHIO.

I THINK HE'S GOT A VERY GOOD

SHOT IN VIRGINIA AND IN FLORIDA.

IF HE WERE TO WIN ALL THREE OF

THOSE, HE JUST NEEDS ONE MORE.

BUT AS RECENTLY AS 2004, THE

REPUBLICAN NOMINEE FOR

PRESIDENT WON 44% OF THE

HISPANIC VOTE.

TONIGHT MITT ROMNEY'S WINNING

CLOSER IN THE 30% RANGE.

THAT'S NOT GOING TO WORK IN AN

ELECTORATE THIS DIVERSE.

WELL, I MUST SAY I LIVED IN

VIRGINIA FOR A LONG TIME.I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE CROWDS

LIKE WE HAVE.

AS I UNDERSTAND WHEN THE POLLS

WERE IN THE PROCESS OF CLOSING,

THEY HAD 500,000 VOTERS IN

VIRGINIA THAT HADN'T BEEN

COUNTED.

THAT IS UNPRECEDENTED TURNOUT

IN VIRGINIA.

I THINK VIRGINIA IS GOING FOR

ROMNEY, FROM WHAT I SEE.

THAT'S JUST -- OF COURSE, MYOPINION.

I DON'T BELIEVE THIS STATE IS

GOING TO GO BLUE FOR OBAMA.

WE'LL HAVE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

WELL, AGAIN, I THINK

VIRGINIA WILL STAY WITH ROMNEY

AS IT IS.

IT'S TIGHTENING, BUT I THINK

ROMNEY WILL CARRY VIRGINIA.

I STILL BELIEVE -- I'M NOT IN

THE PREDICTION BUSINESS, BUT

BASED ON MY ANALYSIS

...

NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED EXCEPT

REPUBLICANS HAVE MISSED A BIG

OPPORTUNITY.

TEA PARTY IN INDIANA UPSET

#NAME?

TOUCH, THEY SAY.

SO, THEY TALK ABOUT THE PRIMARY

AND START MAKING STUPID

STATEMENTS.

WHAT IS IT WITH THESE PEOPLE?

WHY WON'T THEY RECOGNIZE THE

ELECTORATE BEGIN TO FEEL WITHIT?

THAT'S NOT WHO THEY ARE.

THEY'RE NOT PEOPLE -- THEY JUST

GO ALONG WITH THE TREND.

THEY WANT TO BUCK IT.

YOU KNOW WHAT THEY WANT, THEY

WANT SMALLER GOVERNMENT, LOWER

TAXES, LESS SPENDING, THEY WANT

WASHINGTON TO HAVE LESS OF AN

INFLUENCE ON AMERICAN LIFE,

ACTUALLY, ALL THOSE THINGS ARE

ONES THAT YOU AND I, RALPH, AND

ALMOST ALL CONSERVATIVES WANTAS WELL.

BUT THEY'RE JUST VERY

UNCOMPROMISING IN A POLITICAL

REALM WHERE YOU DO HAVE TOCOMPROMISE.

YOU KNOW, THE ONE THING, PAT,

THAT SURPRISED ME ABOUT THIS

ELECTION IS NOT THAT ROMNEY

DIDN'T TURNOUT A HUGE -- A HUGE

MASSIVE VOTE FOR HIMSELF.

AND RALPH IS RIGHT,

EVANGELICALS DID TURNOUT.

NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT.

WHAT SURPRISED ME IS THE

ABILITY OF PRESIDENT OBAMA AND

DEMOCRATS TO TURNOUT ALSO A

HUGE VOTE.

I MEAN, THAT'S WHY WE'RE HAVING

SUCH A BIG VOTE IN VIRGINIA.

IT'S NOT JUST BECAUSE THERE ARE

MORE REPUBLICANS VOTING.

THERE ARE A LOT MORE DEMOCRATS

VOTING AS WELL.

FRANKLY, I DIDN'T THINK

PRESIDENT OBAMA BEING SUCH AN

UNSUCCESSFUL PRESIDENT AND

DEMOCRAT SEEMING TO LACK

ENTHUSIASM THAT THEY'D BE ABLETO DO THIS.

BUT, IN FACT, THEY HAVE.

WHAT ROMNEY WAS SAYING IN

THAT, YOU KNOW, REMARK IN THAT

DINNER, IS IT TRUE THAT WELL

OVER 50% OF PEOPLE ARE GETTING

SOMETHING FROM THE FEDERALGOVERNMENT?

DO THEY REALLY LIKE BIG

GOVERNMENT AND THEY DON'T WANT

TO CHANGE IT?

WELL, YOU KNOW, AN AWFUL LOT

OF PEOPLE WHO DO LIKE WHAT THEY

GET FROM GOVERNMENT.

ON THE OTHER HAND, I THINK THE

FIGURE HE USED WAS 47% OF

AMERICANS AND A LOT OF THOSE

ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE MILITARY,

RETIREES, THEY'RE ON SOCIAL

SECURITY, MEDICARE AND THEY

ACTUALLY VOTE REPUBLICAN.

BUT IT DOES GIVE HIM A BASE,

DEMOCRATS HAVE A BASE OF PEOPLE

WHO WORK FOR GOVERNMENT OR

THEY'RE IN UNIONS OR THEY ARE

RECEIVING -- THEY ARE SOMEHOW

ON THE DOLE.

MAYBE 30% AND IT'S A BIG ONE TO

START WITH.

THERE'S NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT.

IT WAS JUST THE NUMBER THAT

ROMNEY USED WAS WAY TOO BIG.

THAT WAS -- THERE IS A LARGE

CONSTITUENCY VOTE FOR OBAMA.

YOU KNOW, THEY MANAGED TO GET

YOUNG PEOPLE.

THEY DON'T HAVE GOOD JOB

OPPORTUNITIES.

THEY HAPPEN TO LIVE WITH THEIR

PARENTS, AS PAUL RYAN POINTED

OUT.

IF THEY CAME, VOTED

OVERWHELMING FOR OBAMA IN THE

EARLY EXIT POLLS I'VE SEEN.

INDEED.

AND THEY TURNED OUT IN LARGER

NUMBERS THAN WE EXPECTED.

OBVIOUSLY THEY TURNED OUT FOR

OBAMA IN 2008.I DON'T THINK THEY MATCH THAT.

BUT THEY TURNED OUT IN BIGGER

NUMBERS AND ARE A BIGGER SHARE

OF THE ELECTORATE IN 2012 THAN

I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT.

ANOTHER TERM OF OBAMA, THEY'RE

GOING TO BE THE BIG LOSERS.

WHO IS GOING TO HAVE TO PAY FOR

OBAMA CARE?IT'S GOING TO BE YOUNG PEOPLE

WHO DON'T NEED A WHOLE LOT OF

HEALTH CARE AND WOULD BE BETTER

OFF WITH JUST A CHEAP

CATASTROPHIC HEALTH INSURANCEPOLICY.

BUT THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE

ABLE TO BUY ONE OF THOSE.

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO BUY

THE FULL THING.

MAINLY THEY'LL BE PAYING FOROTHERS.

BUT YOUNG PEOPLE DON'T SEEM TO

UNDERSTAND THAT.

FRED, I APPRECIATE THIS.

WE'VE JUST GOTTEN BREAKING NEWS.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER THIS IS

EXACTLY TRUE.

THEY CALL FLORIDA, YOU

REMEMBER, FOR MR. BUSH'S

OPPONENT AND THEY WERE WRONG.

THEY'RE SAYING OHIO FOR OBAMA

RIGHT NOW.

IF THAT'S THE CASE, HE'S WON

THE WHITE HOUSE.WHAT DO YOU THINK?

DO YOU WANT TO COMMENT ON THAT?

THAT'S THE LATEST COMING DOWNTHE WIRE.

WELL, THAT'S THE LIKELIEST

OUTCOME FROM THE SITUATION THATWE FACED IN THE LAST HOUR OR SO

IN THIS RACE.

LOOK, OBAMA TURNED OUT THIS

HUGE -- IT WASN'T BECAUSE HE'S

HAD SUCH A SUCCESSFUL FIRST

TERM.

AND WINNING, IF INDEED HE WINS.

HE HARDLY HAS A MANDATE FOR

ANYTHING.

CERTAINLY NOT THAT.

THIS IS A STATUS QUO ELECTION.

BUT HE TURNED OUT THIS HUGE

CHUNK OF VOTERS THAT I DIDN'T

THINK HE WAS GOING TO BE ABLE

TO A MASS.

AND YET HE DID.

IN OHIO, VIRGINIA, FLORIDA, AND

ALL THESE STATES.

I THOUGHT -- MY JUDGMENT WAS

THAT ROMNEY WAS GOING TO WIN

BECAUSE THERE WAS SUCH

ENTHUSIASM AMONG CONSERVATIVES

AND REPUBLICANS AND

EVANGELICALS AND THERE WOULD BE

THIS HUGE TURNOUT, MUCH LARGER,

ALL THE PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T VOTE

IN 2008 WHO DID IN 2004, THEY

WOULD TURNOUT THIS YEAR, AND

THEY DID.

BUT THEN ALL THESE DEMOCRATS

TURNED OUT AS WELL.

BUT THEY MIGHT HAVE BEEN

UNENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT OBAMA,

BUT, YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE AN

ENTHUSIASTIC VOTER AND YOU'RE

AN UNENTHUSIASTIC VOTER, YOU

STILL -- IN BOTH CASES THEY

EACH GET ONE VOTE.

THERE ARE OVER 4,000

REGULATIONS IN THE HOPPER RIGHT

NOW BEING FROZEN ON BUSINESS.

WE'RE MOVING TOWARD EUROPEAN

STYLE SOCIALISM, WHAT NAME YOUGIVE IT.

DID YOU SEE THIS, OR IS THE --

SURE.

IS THE BOY WITH HIS FINGER

IN THE DIKE?THIS IS THE WAY -- LOOK,

REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO BE

ABLE TO BLOCK OBAMA FROM

GAINING ANYTHING LEGISLATIVELY.

BUT IF HE'S REELECTED, OBAMA

CARE WILL BE INSTALLED.IT WILL BE IMPLEMENTED AND THEN

IT WILL BE HARD TO EVER REMOVE,

MAYBE PARTS OF IT, BUT OVERALL

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A NATIONAL

HEALTH CARE SYSTEM.

IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

HE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET

THINGS THROUGH CONGRESS, BUT,

LOOK, PAT, WHAT HE'S ALREADY

DONE JUST IN THE LAST YEAR JUST

BY EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

HE'S CHANGED LAWS.

HE CHANGED LABEL LAWS, HE

CHANGED IMMIGRATION LAW.

HE'S PUT PEOPLE IN OFFICE WITH

RECESS APPOINTMENTS EVEN WHEN

THE SENATE IS NOT IN RECESS.

THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS HE

CAN STILL DO THAT WILL BE

HARMFUL.

FRED, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THIS ISN'T OVER YET.

THE NETWORKS CALL SOMETHING.

THEY CALL FLORIDA.

JENNIFER IS FROM CHICAGO.

JENNIFER, I GUESS THE OBAMA

CAMPAIGN IS HAVING A MAJOR

PARTY AND POPPING CHAMPAGNE

CORKS NOW, RIGHT?

YES, IT'S QUITE INTERESTING,

PAT.

CNN AS YOU KNOW A IDENTIFY

MOMENTS AGO PROJECTED BARACK

OBAMA IS THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES.

THE CROWD HERE WENT WILD.

BUT IT'S NOT REALLY A CROWD YET.

THERE ARE CERTAINLY A LOT OF

PEOPLE HERE, BUT THE ROOM IS

NOT FULL.

PERHAPS HIS QUARTERS WERE

EXPECTING MUCH LATER NIGHT AS

ALL OF US WERE.

BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE

OBAMA CAMPAIGN, THEY THOUGHT IF

HE WAS TIED WITH MITT ROMNEY

GOING INTO ELECTION DAY, THEY

HAD FAITH IN THEIR GRASSROOTS

NETWORK.

AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT I WAS

IN A FIELD OFFICE HERE IN

CHICAGO LATE LAST NIGHT, AND

EVERY PERSON IN THAT BUILDING

WAS MAKING CALLS TO WISCONSINAND IOWA.

THEY WERE ARRANGING BUS TRIPS

TO GO OUT AND HELP PEOPLE GET

TO THE POLLS IN THOSE TWO

STATES TODAY.

THEY NEVER STOPPED WORKING TO

GET OUT THE VOTE.

AND THEY ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT

THAT IS WHAT WOULD MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THIS ELECTION.

JENNIFER, I UNDERSTAND WE'RE

LOSING OUR SATELLITE WINDOW L

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT

REPORT.

WE TURN NOW TO JOHN OF THE

NATIONAL BUREAU JOINING US FROMNEW YORK.

JOHN, WE WERE TALKING EARLIER,

DOES THIS REPRESENT, ASSUMING

OBAMA HAS WON OHIO, WE DON'T

KNOW, THAT COULD BE AN

ERRONEOUS CALL.

THE VOTES AREN'T TOTALLY

TABULATED, BUT THAT'S THE CALL

FROM THE NETWORKS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

IS THIS NATION GOING TO

CONTINUE IN THIS DIVIDED

SITUATION IN GRIDLOCK, A CLIFF,

WE HAVE THIS HUGE DEBT?

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?

WELL, THE NETWORKS CAN BE

WRONG, BUT IN THIS CASE THEY'RE

PROBABLY NOT BECAUSE REMEMBER

THE FLORIDA IS A DEBACLE OF

2000 WHERE THEY CALLED FLORIDA

FOR GORE FIRST, THEN BUSH, THEN

WENT TO UNDECIDED.

SO, I THINK WE'RE PROBABLY

LOOKING AT BARACK OBAMA BEING

REELECTED.

VERY NARROWLY.

AND, IN FACT, DEPENDING ON HOW

MUCH OF A MAJORITY OBAMA HAS IN

CALIFORNIA, IT IS POSSIBLE MITT

ROMNEY WINS THE POPULAR VOTE

WHEN ALL VOTES ARE COUNTED.

THAT IS A TERRIBLE SITUATION.

IT BRINGS US BACK TO THE BUSH V

GORE SITUATION IN REVERSE IN

WHICH A PRESIDENT TAKES OFFICE

AND THERE IS A LARGE CHUNK OF

PEOPLE WHO QUESTION HIS

LEGITIMACY AND THERE MAY EVEN

BE STATES IN WHICH THERE ARE

ARGUMENTS OVER PROVISIONAL

VOTES, VOTER FRAUD, ALL KINDS

OF ABSENTEE BALLOTS, ALL KINDS

OF THINGS.

CERTAINLY THE STALEMATE OVER

THE FISCAL CLIFF IS NOT GOING

TO BE RESOLVED EASILY.

WE MAY HAVE TO BUILD A BRIDGE

FROM THE FISCAL CLIFF TO THE

NEXT CONGRESS SO THEY DEAL WITH

IT.

I'M NOT SURE THAT THERE WILL BE

ENOUGH IMPETUS TO GET IT DONEIN THE LAME DUCK SESSION.

BUT THE MARKETS WILL NEED

STABILITY.

ALREADY WE'RE SEEING THE DOLLAR

FALLING DRAMATICALLY IN ASIAN

MARKETS, WHICH IS A SIGN THAT

THEY VIEW AMERICA NOW UNCERTAIN

TIMES, UNCERTAIN ECONOMIC

POLICIES, UNCERTAIN FUTURE.

THAT'S NOT GOOD FOR OUR ECONOMY.

SO, I THINK IT IS INCUMBENT TO

WHOEVER BECOMES PRESIDENT SO

WORK WITH CONGRESS IMMEDIATELY

TO TRY RECOGNIZE, WE HAVE TO

PRESENT ENOUGH OF A UNITED

FRONT TO THE REST OF THE WORLD

THAT WE DON'T TRIP INTO

RECESSION EARLY NEXT YEAR.

THE SENATE HASN'T PASSED A

BUDGET IN THREE MONTHS -- I

MEAN, THREE YEARS OR SO.

OBAMA HAS OFFERED SOME KIND OF

A MICKEY MOUSE FISCAL PROGRAM

THAT WAS SHUT DOWN ALMOST

UNANIMOUSLY BY THE CONGRESS.

WHAT HAVE THEY GOT?

HE DOESN'T SEEM TO HAVE ANY

PROGRAM.

HE'S BEEN ABLE TO WIN

REELECTION.WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE?

WELL, UNDERSTAND THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA NEVER STOPPED

CAMPAIGNING.

AS FRED BARNES MENTIONED, HIS

CAMPAIGN FOR STRUCTURE REMAINEDON THE GROUND.

CHALLENGERS ALWAYS HAVE AN

UPHILL BATTLE AGAINST AN

INCUMBENT PRESIDENT.

THE NUMBERS OF INCUMBENT

PRESIDENTS WHO WIN FOLLOW THOSE

WHO HAVE BEEN DEFEATED.

THE ECONOMY IS BAD, BUT

REMEMBER, MORE PEOPLE STILL

BLAME THE BUSH ADMINISTRATIONFOR THE BAD ECONOMIC TIMES THAN

THEY DO THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

SO, I DON'T THINK THIS

REPRESENTS A SEA CHANGE OFAMERICAN LIFE.

OBAMA WAS ELECTED WITH 53%.

HE'S GOING TO GET 49% OR SO

THIS TIME.

I DON'T THINK IT'S A DRAMATIC

SHIFT IN AMERICAN POLITICS.

IT'S A VERY, VERY CHLOE ALEX.

AND IF OBAMA WINS, HE SIMPLY

OUTMUSCLED AND OUTCAMPAIGNEDMITT ROMNEY.

WELL, HE OUTMUSCLED HILLARY

CLINTON.

I THOUGHT SHE WAS GOING TO BE

THE WINNER LAST TIME.

SHE WON ALL THE BIG STATES.

IT WAS A SURPRISE.

IT'S AMAZING.

WELL, I STRONGLY SUSPECT

HILLARY CLINTON, DESPITE HER

PROTESTATIONS WILL BE RUNNING

FOR DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT IN

2016 REGARDLESS OF WHAT HAPPENS

TONIGHT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

>WE HAVE JAY SEKULOW WITH US.

WE HAVEN'T TALKED ABOUT THEJUDGES.

THE CANDIDATES HAVE STAYED AWAY

FROM IT.

YOU'VE BEEN TALKING WITH THE

ROMNEY CAMP.

DO THEY CITY THINK THEY HAD A

CHANCE?

THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD A

WINDOW THROUGH OHIO AND

COLORADO.

OF COURSE, ASSUMING VIRGINIA

AND FLORIDA CAME IN TO BE,

DOESN'T LOOK THAT WAY NOW.

THE NETWORKS ARE CALLING IT.

HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS LEGALLY.

FLORIDA FOR THERE TO BE AN

AUTOMATIC RECOUNT YOU'RE GOING

TO HAVE TO BE WITHIN HALF A

POINT.

OHIO WITHIN .25.

AND IT DOESN'T -- RIGHT NOW WE

DON'T HAVE A DECISION IN

FLORIDA.

OHIO HAS BEEN CALLED.

SO, THAT WILL LOOK LIKE YOU'RE

GOING TO GET INTO THE RECOUNT

SITUATION.

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE YOU'RE GOING

TO GET INTO THE RECOUNTSITUATION.

A LOT OF PEOPLE MONDAY MORNING

QUARTERBACKING.

WHAT JOHN WAS TALKING B ALSO

WHAT FRED BARNES WAS MENTIONING

I THINK IS REALITY.

THERE'S BEEN A CULTURAL SHIFT.

IT'S NOT JUST THE SOCIAL

CONSERVATIVE ISSUES.WE HAVE A DIFFERENT DEMOGRAPHIC.

THIS IS SOMETHING, PAT, YOU'VE

BEEN TALKING ABOUT FOR A YEAR,

MORE THAN A YEAR.

AND THAT IS WE'VE GOT A

CHANGING DEMOGRAPHIC IN THIS

COUNTRY.

AND TO NOT REACH OUT TO THOSE

WITHIN THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY

WHO SHARE OUR VALUES ON SO MANY

POINTS HAS PROBABLY BEEN A

FUNDAMENTAL ERROR.

IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU DON'T

SECURE THE BORDERS, BY THE WAY,

BUT IT DOES MEAN YOU HAVE TO

COME UP WITH COMPREHENSIVE

SOLUTIONS.

THE LESSON FOR THE REPUBLICANS,

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN THAT

HAS A LESSON TO IT.

THERE HAS TO BE A REASON FOR

PEOPLE TO COME OUT AND VOTE.

NUMBERS WERE HIGH.

A LOT OF PEOPLE CAME OUT TO

VOTE.

DON'T UNDER ESTIMATE, I THINK

THAT'S THE MESSAGE ALSO, THE

GROUND GAME OF THE DNC.

AND THE OBAMA TEAM.

DAVID AXELROD, YOU MAY DISAGREE

WITH HIM ON POLICIES, WE DO.THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS HE

HAD OBVIOUSLY A GOOD GROUND

NAME AND THEY GOT BIG NUMBERSOUT.

THE ISSUE OF JUDGES NEVER DID

REACH THE FRONT AND CENTER.

PART OF THAT WAS BECAUSE OF THE

HEALTH DECISION ON OBAMA CARE.

THE SUPREME COURT, WAYS

THINKING TO MYSELF A FEW

MINUTES AGO, YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE

CASES NOW WHERE YOU WIN THEM IN

THE LOWER COURTS.

WE DID THIS IN THE '80S.

YOU REMEMBER THIS.

IF YOU WON IN THE COURT OF

APPEALS, IT DOESN'T MEAN CASES

WILL GO UP THERE.

I THINK WE HAVE ONE COMING UP

PRETTY SOON.

BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS

JUDGES MATTER AND PRESIDENT

OBAMA COULD WELL SELECT TWO OR

THREE JUSTICES OF THE SUPREME

COURT.

AND FRANKLY THAT'S A SUPREME

COURT I'M GOING TO BE DEALING

WITH FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

SO THE REALITY IS I'M GOING TO

DEAL WITH IT THE BEST WAY I CAN.

WE'VE HAD A LOT OF UNANIMOUS

DECISIONS IN THE PAST.

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO SHOOT

FOR AGAIN.I THINK THIS IS A BIT OF A WAKE

UP CULL CALL HERE.

YOU'RE THE BEST OF THE

POLITICAL ANALYSIS.

YOU WON FOR PRESIDENT OF THEUNITED STATES.

YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE.

I THINK THE END OF THE DAY

HERE, THE REAL PROBLEM WAS I

THINK UNDERESTIMATING THE

OBAMA'S MACHINE HERE.

THEY GOT SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS.HE SPENT AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT

OF MONEY ON STAFF.

THEY HAD A HUGE STAFF AND THEY

MANNED THE PRECINCTS

TREMENDOUSLY, WAY, WAY BACK

WHEN.

INSTEAD OF SPENDING ALL THAT

MONEY, THEY SPENT ENORMOUS

AMOUNT OF MONEY ON MEDIA, BUT

THEY SPENT IT, FIRST OF ALL, ON

STAFF.

AND, SO --

BOOTS ON THE GROUND.

BOOTS ON THE GROUND, IT PAID

OFF.

I'M A GREAT ONE FOR GRASSROOTS.

THERE IS THE VICE PRESIDENT

COMING IN.

YOU SEE RIGHT NOW.

BUT, JAY, ONE LAST THING.

DO YOU THINK THERE ARE ENOUGH

PEOPLE WITH INTESTINAL

FORTITUDE IN THE SENATE TO

FILIBUSTER JUDGES?

YOU KNOW WHAT THE DEMOCRATS DID

IN CIRCUIT COURT JUDGES OPPOSED

BY GEORGE BUSH, WHAT DO YOUTHINK?

PAT, I DON'T THINK WE HAVE A

CHOICE.

I THINK THE REPUBLICANS IN THE

SENATE HAVE TO SHOW THE KIND OF

BACKBONE THAT'S GOING TO MAKE

SURE THAT THEY DO THEIR JOB.

AND DOING THEIR JOB HERE IS NOT

JUST ROLLING OVER AND LETTING

EVERY NOMINEE COME FORWARD.

YOU LOOK AT THE NOMINATION

PROCESS.

LET'S LOOK AT WHAT SOME OF THE

CANDIDATES WE NOMINATED AND

WELL QUALIFIED CANDIDATES AND

WE HAD TO FIGHT FOR TO CUT

DEALS WITH TO GET THROUGH

BECAUSE OF THE FILIBUSTER.

IT WORKS BOTH WAYS.

THEY CALL IT THE NUCLEAR OPTION.

MAYBE IT'S JUST?

TIME.

WHICH IS WHAT?

SHUT EVERYTHING DOWN, THE

NUCLEAR OPTION?

IF THEY'RE GOING TO PLAY BY

RULES WHERE BASICALLY NOW, THE

PRESIDENT IS BASICALLY

LEGISLATING BY REGULATION RIGHTNOW.

THAT'S RIGHT.IF HE ASSUMES THE

REPUBLICANS IN THE UNITED

STATES SENATE ARE GOING TO

PLAY, ROLLOVER ON JUDICIAL

NOMINEES, I THINK THAT IS A

MISTAKE.

THIS IS A SUPREME COURT FOR A

GENERATION THAT IS GOING TO BE

SELECTED IN THE NECK THREE OR

FOUR YEARS, OR TWO GENERATIONS.

I THINK WE HAVE TO BE COGNIZANT

OF THAT FACT, THERE IS

TREMENDOUS AMOUNT ON THE LINE

HERE.AND WE'VE GOT TO BE CONCERNED,

THE NATURE OF THE APPOINTMENTS

COMING OUT OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

I TELL YOU SOMETHING ELSE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA MAY WELL HAVE

WON THE PRESIDENCY AGAIN.

IT LOOKS LIKE HE HAS,

THEENERSCTIONTION ARE CALLINGIT.

HE MAY WELL BE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES.

BEN GAZE I IS NOT GOING AWAY,

FAST AND FURIOUS IS NOT GOINGAWAY.

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND THERE IS A REPUBLICAN

CONTROLLED HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES AND THEY'RE NOTGOING AWAY.

AND AT THE END OF THE DAY THAT

MEANS THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO

HAVE TO WORK BOTH WAYS HERE.

I THINK THE REPUBLICANS ARE

GOING TO HAVE TO HOLD HIM TO IT.

THESE INVESTIGATIONS IN BEN

GAZI WILL BE THE SCANDAL OF

SCANDALS.

THE PROSTITUTION, HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES IS THE ONE THAT

INITIATES THE TAX LEGISLATIONAND THE BUDGET.

THE LOOKS OF THE PRESIDENT'S

LEADERSHIP, WE HAVEN'T BEEN

GETTING IT, THE HOUSE IS THEREPOSITORY.

SO, IF THEY DO THEIR JOB, THEY

CAN WIN.

THAT'S EXACTLY CORRECT.

YOU DO HAVE -- YOU HAVE A FALL

BACK, A FAIL-SAFE HERE.

THAT IS THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

IT LOOKS LIKE THAT MAJORITY IS

MAINTAINED.I DON'T THINK IT IS GOING TO BE

MUCH OF A PICKUP.

MAYBE A FEW SEATS.

THE SENATE JUST DID NOT WORK.

YOU KNOW, YOU LOOK BACK AT IT

NOW AND YOU START SAYING,

REDEFINE, WE HAD A LOT OF

OPPORTUNITIES.

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY SWUNG A

MISS HERE.

AS A CONSERVATIVE, IT'S

DISHEARTENING.

BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT, POLITICS

NERVE RAISED ANYBODY FROM THE

DEAD.AT THE END OF THE DAY WE STILL

HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT.

JAY, AMEN.

KEEP IT UP AND OUR PRAYERS ARE

WITH YOU.

WE GO AWAY NOW TO OUR CBN NEWS

DESK FOR MORE DETAILS ABOUT

WHAT WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT.

AGAIN, A NETWORK CALL IS NOT

THE FINAL VOTE.

SO, WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THEY

KNOW WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.

AND HERE'S LEE WOOD.

PAT, I HAVE WORD ONE NETWORK

IS BACKTRACKING ON THE STATE OF

OHIO AND SAYING ONE OF THEIR

ANALYSTS IS SAYING THERE'S

STILL A CHANCE THAT OHIO CAN GO

ROMNEY'S WAY.WE'LL KEEP AN EYE ON THAT, BUT

REPUBLICANS DID KEEP CONTROL OF

THE HOUSE TODAY A WE'VE BEEN

MENTIONING.

BUT TURNING TO THE SENATE,

REPUBLICANS NEEDED TO GAIN FOUR

SEATS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE

U.S. SENATE, BUT THEY FAILED TODO SO.

IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF

VIRGINIA, WE ARE PREPARED TO

SAY DEMOCRATS HELD ONTO A

SENATE SEAT, BEING LEFT OPEN BY

OUTGOING SENATOR JIM WEB.

TIM KAINE HAS DEFEATED GEORGE

ALLEN TO HOLD THAT SEAT.

THAT IS A BATTLE OF TWO FORMER

GOVERNORS OF THE COMMONWEALTH.

AND INDIANA, REPUBLICANS LOST A

SEAT.

RICHARD MURDOCK LOSING TO

DEMOCRAT JOE DONNELLY.

MURDOCK'S CONTROVERSIAL

COMMENTS ABOUT RAPE AND

ABORTION DEFINED THIS RACE INITS FINAL WEEKS.

IN MISSOURI REPUBLICAN

CONGRESSMAN TODD AKIN LOST A

CHANCE TO OUST INCUMBENT CLAIRE

MCCASKILL.

REPUBLICAN LEADERS INCLUDING

MITT ROMNEY CALLED ON HIM TO

ABANDON THE RACE.THAT DID NOT HAPPEN.

HE STAYED IN AND HE WAS

TROUNCED BY THE INCUMBENT

MCCASKILL TONIGHT.

IN MASSACHUSETTS REPUBLICANS

LOST ANOTHER SEAT AS INCUMBENT

SCOTT BROWN FELL TO DEMOCRAT

ELIZABETH WARREN.

BROWN SHOCKED THE NATION OF

COURSE IN 2010 WHEN HE WON THE

SEAT HELD BY DEMOCRAT TED

KENNEDY FOR 47 YEARS IN A

SPECIAL ELECTION.

WARREN IS A HARVARD LAW

PROFESSOR AND THE FIRST WOMAN

TO HOLD A U.S. SENATE SEAT IN

MAINE -- MASSACHUSETTS, RATHER.

AND IN MAINE, INDEPENDENT

CANDIDATE ANGUS KING WILL

RETIRE OLYMPIA SNOW.

KING IS EXPECTED TO VOTE WITH

THE DEMOCRATS..

IN FLORIDA, DEMOCRATS HELD

THEIR SEAT, INCUMBENT DEMOCRAT

BILL NELSON PULLED OFF AN EASYVICTORY OVER GOP CONGRESSMAN

CONNIE MACK.THIS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST RACES

CALLED TONIGHT.

AND IN CONNECTICUT DEMOCRAT

CHRIS MURPHY MAXED OUT LINDA

MCMAHON.

JOE LIEBERMAN WHO SIDES WITH

DEMOCRATS.

A TOUGH AS NAILS RACE IN

MONTANA JON TESTER APPEARS TO

BE DEFEATING DENNY RAYBERG.

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE PICKED UP

THREE SEATS AND THE REPUBLICANS

HAVE LOST THREE SEATS.

KEY RACES HAVE YET TO BE

CALLED, THOUGH, IN OBAMA,

ARIZONA AND OUT WEST.

LET'S GO NOW TO OUR CBN NEWS

POLITICAL EDITOR JOHN LAGGE.

JOHN, WERE YOU PREDICTING A

REPUBLICAN TAKEOVER.

WHAT IN YOUR OPINION HAPPENED

HERE TONIGHT?

LEE, ACTUALLY I THINK THAT

THE REPUBLICANS DID NOT GAIN

ANYTHING FROM THE EVANGELICAL

VOTE THAT TURNED OUT IN BIG

NUMBERS.

AND I THINK THE ABORTION

COMMENTS CLEARLY HURT THE TWO

SENATE CANDIDATES IN INDIANA

AND MISSOURI DURING THEIRDEBATES.

AND RADIO INTERVIEWSRESPECTIVELY.

ONE OF THE AMAZING THINGS FROM

THE EXIT POLLS, AT LEAST THE

EARLY EXIT POLLS THAT ALMOST

50% OF VOTERS' EXIT POLLS SAID

THE ECONOMY OR THINGS IN THE

NATION APPEAR TO BE ON THE

RIGHT TRACK.

NOW, IF THAT'S THE CASE, THEN A

CHANGE OVER IN THE SENATE IS

NOT AS BIG AN ISSUE FOR PEOPLE

LIKE THAT.

SO, YOU COMBINE THESE THINGS

TOGETHER AND THE REPUBLICANS

AMAZINGLY ENOUGH, LEE, WERE

DEFENDING 10 SEATS IN THIS

ELECTION CYCLE.DEMOCRATS 23.

DEMOCRATS 23, AND THEY STILL

--

STILL PULLED IT OFF.

SO, YOU KNOW, YOU'VE GOT TO

TIP YOUR HAT TO THE DEMOCRATIC

SENATORIAL --

THE GROUND GAME WAS IN THE

SENATE RACES AS WELL.

PAT, IT'S GOING TO BE AWHILE

BEFORE WE SEE HOW ALL THIS

SHAKES OUT.RIGHT.

MY GUESS, PAT, AND I WANTED

TO GET YOUR TAKE ON THIS.

MY GUESS IS THAT CONSERVATIVES

IN THE SENATE ARE REALLY GOING

TO BE ANGRY.

AND I CAN'T HELP BUT THINK IF

THERE IS GOING TO BE A CALL FOR

MITCH MCCONNELL TO RESIGN AS

SENATE MINORITY LEADER AND TO

GET A CONSERVATIVE MAYBE LIKE A

JIM DeMINT OR TOM CO-BURN IN

THERE AS SENATE MINORITY LEADER.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?I DON'T THINK SO.

I THINK BLOOD LETTING WILL BE

UNWISE.

I DON'T BELIEVE THEY'LL DO THAT.

BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.SENATORS ARE SENATORS.

I WAS GOING TO SAY, BUT I DON'T

THINK THERE IS ENOUGH -- THEY

GET RID OF THE SENIOR OLD BULL

WHO WAS IN FOREVER, AND THEY

LOST A SEAT.

SO, I'M NOT SURE THAT IS GOING

TO WORK.

>BY THE WAY, WE JUST GOT

THIS IN.

KARL ROVE HAS STUDIED THE

DEMOGRAPHICS AND MAKEUP OF

OHIO, AND HE SAYS THAT THE

NETWORK CALL OF OHIO FOR OBAMA

IS WRONG.

SO, BO IS THE EXPERT.

LET ME TELL YOU, I WITHDRAW

AGAINST HIM RIGHT NOW.

REMEMBER THEY CALLED FLORIDA

FOR BUSH AS PERMANENT.

THEY SHIFTED AGAIN BACK ANDFORTH.

SO, I THINK IT'S A LITTLE TOO

EARLY TO SAY DEFINITIVELY.

BUT I WANT TO GO TO DAVE NOW

FROM BOSTON.

DAVE, YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF

IT.

WHAT DO YOU HEAR?

I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU, PAT,

IT'S LIKE WE'RE BACK FROM THE

DEAD HERE IN BOSTON.

I MEAN, THERE WAS LITERALLY YOU

COULD HEAR A PIN DROP.

THEY CALLED IT FOR OHIO.

NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN KARL ROVE

HAS SPOKEN UP.

HE WAIT A MINUTE, IT'S NOT OVER

IN OHIO.

NOW FOX IS STARTING TO FIGURE

OUT WHAT THEIR DECISION DESK

WAS ACTUALLY THINKING.

AND WE'VE HAD SO MANY CHEERS

HERE IN JUST THE LAST FEW

MINUTES.

I MEAN IT'S BEEN A PRETTY STARK

CONTRAST TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED

HERE ALL NIGHT LONG.

AND, SO, THERE IS SOME LIFE

HERE IN BOSTON, BELIEVE IT ORNOT.

WHO KNOWS.

I MEAN, WHO KNOWS.

AFTER FLORIDA IN 2000, YOU

NEVER KNOW WHAT'S GOING TOHAPPEN HERE, PAT.

>LOOK, I WILL SAY A COUPLE

OF THINGS.

YOU WONDER IF MITT ROMNEY DOES

END UP LOSING THIS, WHICH IT

APPEARS THAT HE HAS, BUT NOW

WHO KNOWS EXACTLY.

BUT IF HE DOES, WHAT ABOUT THAT

ANTI-OBAMA VOTE?

WE HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT IT.

BUT WAS IT ENOUGH?

AND I THINK THAT'S REALLY THE

QUESTION THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE

ARE GOING TO BE WONDERING, THE

FACT THAT HE JUST BASICALLY

SAID -- HE HE BEING MITT ROMNEY

SAYING, WELL, WE'VE GOT THE

ANTI-ROMNEY VOTE.

BUT IT DIDN'T SEEM LIKE THEY

WERE ABLE TO PROJECT THAT

POSITIVE IMAGE ALL THE WAY

THROUGH ON THAT.

>THE OTHER PART OF THIS

HERE, PAT, YOU GUYS WERE

TALKING ABOUT THE HISPANIC VOTE.

QUITE FRANK LITTLE THERE IS THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTE AS WELL

AND THE CHANGING ELECTORATE.

I REMEMBER BACK IN 2007, 2008

WHEN TAVIS SMILY, THE PBS

BROADCASTER, AFRICAN-AMERICAN

PBS BROADCASTER HAD THIS BIG

TELE TOWN TELEVISION EVENT.

MITT ROMNEY DIDN'T SHOW UP,

GIULIANI DIDN'T SHOW UP.

THE POINT IS REPUBLICANS

HAVEN'T BEEN TALKING TO THE

HISPANICS AND THE BLACKS IN

THIS COUNTRY AND IT'S BEEN A

REAL PROBLEM WITHIN THE GOPCIRCLE.

THEY'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT

FOR AWHILE BUT THEY'VE BEEN

DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT.

SO, I THINK THAT WILL BE A

MAJOR CONVERSATION GOINGFORWARD.

WELL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND, FOLKS, THIS CALL, ARE THE

NETWORKS SCREWING UP?

RALPH IS STILL WITH US, I

BELIEVE.

RALPH, WHAT ARE THESE GUYS

DOING?

I THINK THIS STATISTICAL

ANOMALY WE'RE RUNNING INTO IS

VERY PERPLEXING.THIS IS THE SECOND TIME IT'S

HAPPENED.

YEAH, I MEAN, CERTAINLY IF

YOU WERE BETTING, YOU WOULD BET

THAT OBAMA WOULD CARRY OHIO.

HE'S CARRIED HAMILTON COUNTY

TONIGHT, WHICH IS CINCINNATI.

HE'S CARRIED FRANKLIN COUNTYTONIGHT WHICH IS COLUMBUS.

AND HE'S CARRIED CLEVELAND.

BUT THE FACT IS THERE ARE STILL

A LOT OF VOTE IN COAL COUNTRY

COMING IN, VOTES COME INTION

FROM SOUTHWESTERN OHIO.AND I THINK IT'S PREMATURE.

BUT I THINK, YOU KNOW, I WANT

TO GET BACK TO THIS DEMOGRAPHIC

QUESTION, PAT, BECAUSE IF THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY COMES UP SHORT

TONIGHT, AND CERTAINLY IT LOOKS

LIKE THAT'S GOING TO BE THE

CASE, ALTHOUGH IT'S EARLY TO

CALL IT IN MY VIEW, YOU HAVE TO

REMEMBER THAT IF YOU TAKE THIS

ELECTORATE, WHICH IS 73% WHITE

TONIGHT, 27% MINORITY, IT LOOKS

LIKE IN FLORIDA, BY THE WAY,

IT'S GONE FROM 12% HISPANIC TO

15% HISPANIC.

THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTE IS

GOING TO BE 14% OF THE VOTE

TONIGHT.

IF YOU TAKE THE SHARE THAT

RONALD REAGAN GOT IN 1980 OF

EVERY ONE OF THOSE GROUPS,

BLACKS, HISPANICS, WOMEN,

WHITES, ASIANS AND SO FORTH,

REAGAN WOULD LOSE IN THIS

ELECTORATE BECAUSE HE RAN WHEN

THE ELECTORATE WAS 88% WHITE.

NOW THE ELECTORATE IS ONLY 73%

WHITE.

SO, WHAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY

WIN, LOSE OR DRAW TONIGHT, IS

GOING TO HAVE TO GET BUSY WITH

TOMORROW MORNING AT DAWN IS

FIGURING OUT A WAY, WITHOUT

COMPROMISING THEIR CORE VALUES

OF LIMITED GOVERNMENT,

INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM, STRONGER

FAMILIES AND PROTECTION OF LIFE

AND MARRIAGE, OVER PERFORMING

AMONG THOSE GROUPS.

THEY HAVE TO PRACTICE THE

POLITICS OF ADDITION, NOT THE

POLITICS OF SUBTRACTION.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE 12 MILLION

ILLEGAL ALIENS IN THIS COUNTRY.

AND THEY'RE GOOD PEOPLE.

THEY'VE GOT FAMILIES.

MANY OF THEM HAVE WORKED HERE

FOR MANY YEARS AND YOU REMEMBER

THE DEBATE WHEN PERRY WAS

TALKING ABOUT GIVING SOME

EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE TO THE

CHILDREN OF SOME OF THESE

PEOPLE AND HE WAS ATTACKED BY

HIS RIVALS FOR THE NOMINATION.

WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING.

THESE ARE HUMAN BEINGS.

WE CAN'T RUN THEM OUT OF THE

COUNTRY WITH PAY NETS.

#NAME?

WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING TO HELP

THEM.

THE REPUBLICANS SEEM TO BE DEAD

SET AGAINST DOING THAT.

AND I THINK THEY HURT

THEMSELVES VERY BADLY.

I THINK THEY HAVE.

AND THE GOOD NEWS, PAT, IS THAT

IF MITT ROMNEY COMES UP SHORT

TONIGHT, HE WILL HAVE BEEN A

MIDWIFE BETWEEN THE REAGAN-BUSH

HERE A THAT STRETCHED FROM 1980

ALL THE WAY UNTIL BUSH 43 LEFT

OFFICE IN 2009 TO WHAT I

BELIEVE IS A RISING GENERATION

OF NEW LEADERS LIKE MARCO

RUBIOS, BOB JINDAHL, NICKY

HALEY IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

ROB YO HAS PUT FORWARD A

PROPOSAL THAT ALLOW PEOPLE WHO

PAY BY THE RULES, PAY TAXES TO

RECEIVE A RESIDENT VISA.

BUT WHATEVER THE SOLUTION IS,

PEOPLE LIKE MARTINEZ AND ROB YO

ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BE THE

FACE AND THE LEADERS OF THIS

PARTY IN THE FUTURE.AND I THINK WHAT'S GOT TO BE

DONE HERE, PAT, IS YOU DON'T

WANT TO TAKE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE

KNOCKING ON DOORS AND RINGING

DOOR BELLS AND BURNING SHOE

LEATHER IN THE PRECINCTS AND

MAKING THE PHONE CALLS.

MY ORGANIZATION FAITH AND

FREEDOM COALITION, OUR

VOLUNTEERS IN OHIO MADE 415,000

PHONE CALLS IN THE LAST 10 DAYS.

SO, IN A STATUS QUO ELECTION,

YOU DON'T THROW THEM OVER BOARD.

WHAT YOU DO IS FIGURE OUT HOW

TO KEEP THEM ENERGIZED AND KEEP

THEM ACTIVE AND THEN BRING

OTHERS INTO THE PARTY.

WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

AND I DON'T THINK THE GAME IS

OVER YET.

I THINK THAT JUST LIKE FLORIDA,

OHIO IS -- KARL ROVE IS A

GENIUS.

HE'S STILL CRUNCHING THENUMBERS.

WE'LL HAVE TO SEE.

>JOHN IS WITH US FROM NEWYORK.

JOHN, TALK ABOUT VOTER TURNOUT

TODAY.

AND THERE WAS A BIG SPIKE OF

THE DEMOCRATS IN 2008 THAT IT

LOOKED LIKE WOULDN'T BE THERE

THIS YEAR, BUT APPARENTLY THEYWERE.

WELL, THE DEMOCRATS DID

THREE VERY SMART THINGS IN THE

LAST FEW YEARS.

ONE IS THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN NEVER

DISBANDED.

IT KEPT A LOT OF OFFICES AND

INFRASTRUCTURE IN PLACE.

IT KEPT ITS MAILING LISTS ALIVE.

AND THEY WERE CONSTANTLY

RUNNING A PERMANENT CAMPAIGN.

LIKE NOTHING I'VE EVER SEEN

BEFORE.

THE SECOND THING IS THAT THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DID WAS

VERY CLEVERLY USE THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT TO THWART EFFORTS BY

THE STATES TO PASS VOTER ID

FRAUDS.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

BASICALLY THREW ITSELF IN FRONT

OF ANY ATTEMPT BY A STATE TO

PASS SUCH ID LAW EVEN IF THE

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES DECLARED THOSE

UNCONSTITUTIONAL UNDER THE

FEDERAL CONSTITUTION.

THE THIRD THING THEY DID IS

EXPANDED OR TRIED TO EXPAND

EARLY VOTING AND ABSENTEE

VOTING IN AS MANY STATES AS

POSSIBLE.

BECAUSE WITH ALL OF THE UNION

SUPPORT AND THE OBAMA

INFRASTRUCTURE, WHILE MITT

ROMNEY WAS FIGHTING IN THE

PRIMARIES, THEY WERE GETTING

READY TO MARCH PEOPLE TO THE

POLLS.

AND BY THE TIME SEPTEMBER AND

OCTOBER ROLLED AROUND, YOU HAD

MINISTERS WHO WERE TALKING TO

CONGREGATIONS AND IMMEDIATELY

AFTER THE SERMON TAKING THEM TO

BUSES AND TAKING THEM TO THE

EARLY VOTING CENTERS.

NOTHING ILLEGAL ABOUT THATWHATSOEVER.

BUT, YOU KNOW, MY VIEW IS

ELECTION DAY SHOULD BE ELECTION

DAY.

IT SHOULDN'T BE ELECTION MONTH.

I THINK WE HAVE DRAMATICALLY

EXPANDED AND ABUSED THE EARLY

VOTING PROCESS.

I

I THINK IT SHOULD BE CUTBACK TO

ONE OR TWO WEEKS BEFORE.

.

THE MORNING AFTER BARACK OBAMA

ACCEPTED THE NOMINATION FORPRESIDENT AT THE CHARLOTTE

CONVENTION, THAT'S JUSTRIDICULOUS.

SO I THINK THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION BENT, BROKE, AND

MASSAGED EVERY RULE THEY COULD

AND KEPT THEIR CAMPAIGN

INFRASTRUCTURE IN PLACE.

THEY CERTAINLY DID.

>ONE LAST QUESTION.

DO YOU FIND EVIDENCE OF FRAUD

#NAME?

IT SEEMS LIKE --

IT WAS SCATTERED.SCATTERED.

THERE ARE SCATTERED PROBLEMS.

IN FLORIDA THEY THREW A POLL

WATCHER -- POLL WORKER, I'M

SORRY, OUT OF THE PRECINCT.

IN WISCONSIN THERE'S ALL KINDS

OF CONCERNS ABOUT FEDERAL VANS

BEING USED TO TRANSPORT WORKERS

FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES.

IN PHILADELPHIA 78 REPUBLICAN

ELECTION JUDGES WERE BARRED

FROM ENTERING THE POLLS.

THE JUDGE HAD TO REINSTATE THEM.

I DON'T SEE A SYSTEMIC EFFORT

YET, BUT IT'S EARLY.

THE POLLS ONLY CLOSED A FEW

HOURS AGO.

I THINK WE DO HAVE TO LOOK ATTHIS.

WE HAVE TO CATALOG THEM AND WE

SHOULDN'T JUMP TO ANY

CONCLUSIONS BECAUSE WE DON'THAVE ALL OF THE EVIDENCE IN YET.

JOHN, THANK YOU.

I UNDERSTAND THEY'RE CALLING

RIGHT NOW, WE SHOULD HAVE

MENTIONED THIS A LITTLE

EARLIER, THAT IOWA HAS GONE FOR

OBAMA.

OHIO -- IOWA IS IN THE OBAMA

CAMP.

WHAT ABOUT MARRIAGE, LEE?

VOTERS AROUND THE COUNTRY

FACED SOME QUESTIONS, TOTAL OF

176 MEASURES ON THE BALLOTS IN

38 STATES.

AMONG SOME OF THE HIGHER

PROFILE MEASURES, WASHINGTON,

OREGON, COLORADO COULD BECOME

THE FIRST STATES TO LEGALIZE

THE RECREATIONAL USE OFMARIJUANA.

MASSACHUSETTS VOTERS REPORTEDLY

APPROVED MEDICAL MARIJUANA.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT MEASURE ON

THE MASSACHUSETTS BALLOT

TONIGHT, WHETHER TO ALLOW

PHYSICIAN-ASSISTED SUICIDE.

BUT THE ISSUES THAT GENERATED

THE MOST ATTENTION WERE

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE AND PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S HEALTH CARE LAW.

TODAY VOTERS IN FOUR STATES

WEIGHED IN ON GAY MARRIAGE

WHETHER IT SHOULD BE LEGAL.

THE BATTLE HAS BEEN NASTY IN

SOME AREAS.

FOR EXAMPLE, IN MAINE VANDALS

SPRAY PAINTED SWASTIKAS.

42 STATES OBJECTED TO SAME SEXMARRIAGE.

ADVOCATES FELT TODAY THEY HAD A

BETTER CHANCE THAN EVER BEFORE.

GAY MARRIAGE ADVOCATES

WELCOME FOUR MORE STATES VOTING

ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE ESPECIALLY

SINCE THEY INCLUDED WASHINGTONAND MARYLAND.

ONE LINE OF THOUGHT IS ONE OF

THE MORE BLUE OF THE BLUE

STATES, MARYLAND'S POPULATION

WOULD PROBABLY BE AMONG THE

FIRST TO APPROVE A SAME-SEXMARRIAGE.

ANOTHER LINE OF THOUGHT IS ONE

OF THE LARGEST BLACK

POPULATIONS, APPROVE OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA, AND SINCE HE

IS NOW IN FAVOR OF SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE THEY WOULD BE, TOO.

KENYA MORTON IS AND SAYS

MARYLAND IS VERY OPEN TO

ALTERNATE LIFE STYLES.

OPPORTUNITIES OF GETTING BY

WITH STUFF THAT YOU WOULDN'T BE

ABLE TO GET BY IN YOUR STATE,

MOST LIKELY MARYLAND WILL BE

THE STATE THAT WILL LET YOU DOIT.

MANY MARYLAND CHURCH GOERS

WORRY STATE SANCTIONED GAY

MARRIAGE MEANS THEY LOSE THE

RIGHT TO TEACH THEIR CHILDREN

WHAT IS BIBLICAL ABOUT

SEXUALITY.

DON DWYER HAS BEEN A LONG-TIME

LEADER IN THE FIGHT AGAINST GAYMARRIAGE.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE EDUCATION

OF CHILDREN.

IT IS ABOUT THE REDEFINITION OF

THE WORD MARRIAGE SO IT CAN BE

TAUGHT IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS AS

A NORMAL SEXUAL LIE LIFE-STYLE.

FRANK SHOE BERT ORDERED THE

TRADITIONAL CAMPAIGN IN ALL

FOUR STATES TUESDAY.

IN WASHINGTON, D.C. HE TOLD CBN

NEWS BELIEVERS NEED TO REALIZE

THE ISSUES GOING ON IN PLACES

WHERE GAY MARRIAGE IS STATE

SANCTIONED.

IT'S TAUGHT IN THE SCHOOLS

TO YOUNG CHILDREN.

PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THAT

MARRIAGE IS AS GOD DESIGNED IT

ARE PUNISHED.

THEY'RE SUED.

THEY ARE BROUGHT BEFORE HUMAN

RIGHTS COMMISSIONS.

THERE'S ALL KINDS OF

CONSEQUENCES THAT COULD BEFALLUS.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

PASADENA, MARYLAND.

JOINING US NOW WITH MORE ON

THIS CRITICAL ISSUE IS MAGGIE.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US.

RIGHT NOW IT DOES NOT LOOK GOOD

FOR MITT ROMNEY AND FOR THE

REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE.

HOW ARE YOU FEELING ABOUT THESE

MARRIAGE INITIATIVES TONIGHT?

WELL, I TALKED TO BRIAN

BROWN WHO RUNS THE NATIONAL

ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE JUST

A FEW MINUTES BEFORE I CAME ON.

AND THEY'RE FEELING PRETTY GOOD

ABOUT MARYLAND AND MAINE, WHICH

WERE THE TWO THAT THEY HAD

GOTTEN SUBSTANTIAL -- IT'S VERY

CLOSE.

THESE ARE DEEP BLUE STATES.

WASHINGTON, MINNESOTA, MARYLAND

AND MAINE.

AND THE SUPPORTERS OF MARRIAGE

WERE OUTSPENT ROUGHLY 8 TO 1, 6

TO 1, 8 TO 1 IN MOST OF THESE

STATES.

SO, IT'S BEEN A VERY GRUELING

CAMPAIGN.

PEOPLE ARE FEELING SURPRISINGLY

GOOD ABOUT OUR CHANCES IN

MARYLAND, MAINE AND MINNESOTA

AND WE'LL BE WAITING TO SEE

WHAT HAPPENS IN WASHINGTON

STATE AS THE POLLS CLOSE LATE

THERE.

MAGGIE, FOR YOUR

INITIATIVES, FOR TRADITIONALMARRIAGE, DO YOU BELIEVE IT'S

THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN ELECTORATETHAT IS SUPPORTING PRESIDENT

OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT AND MORE

LIBERAL CANDIDATES FOR, SAY,

SENATE, BUT DO HAVE A CULTURAL

OBJECTION TO SAME-SEX MARRIAGE?

WELL, THAT WOULD EXPLAIN

MARYLAND.

IT REALLY WOULDN'T EXPLAIN IT

IN MAINE WHICH HAS A VERY LOW

PROPORTION OF THE VOTE THAT IS

BLACK.

SO, I WOULD SAY THAT IT'S

CERTAINLY TRUE THE BLACK

CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN STRONG

SUPPORTERS OF THE BIBLICAL

UNDERSTANDING OF MARRIAGE AND

THAT'S BEEN VERY IMPORTANT.

AND OBAMA AND THE NAACP HAVE

BEEN TRYING TO -- IN FACT,

THERE WAS AN AD CAMPAIGN WHICH

ACTUALLY URGED BLACK VOTERS TO

IGNORE THEIR PASTORS ON THE

MARRIAGE ISSUE.

WE'LL SEE SHORTLY HOW THATWORKS OUT.

THERE IS AN IMPORTANT VOTE IN

IOWA FOR ONE OF THE FOUR -- ONE

OF THE FOURTH JUDGE WHO VOTED

TO IMPOSE GAY MARRIAGE IN THAT

STATE IS UP FOR AN ELECTION,

JUDGE WIGGINS.

SO, WE'LL BE WATCHING THAT.

BUT I HAVE A FEELING THAT

MARRIAGE IS GOING TO RUN AHEAD

OF THE GOP CANDIDATE WHO

REFUSED TO USE THE VALUES

ISSUES.

SO, I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO LOOK AT.

MAGGIE, THANKS FOR BEING

WITH US TONIGHT.

WE APPRECIATE IT.SURE.

LET'S GO BACK TO PAT.

YOU KNOW, I WANT TO POINT

OUT HERE ON THIS PROGRAM WE'VE

HAD 40 DAYS OF PRAYER.

WE HAVE ASKED GOD ALMIGHTY TO

INTERVENE, TO GIVE US WISE AND

RIGHTEOUS LEADERS.

AND I WAS IN LINE WAITING TO

VOTE EARLIER TODAY.

I THOUGHT OF THE GREAT

GETTYSBURG ADDRESS OF ABRAHAM

LINCOLN.

HE SAYS THE GOVERNMENT OF THE

PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE AND BY

THE PEOPLE SHOULD NOT PERISH

FROM THE EARTH.

IN THE VOTING PRECINCT WHERE I

WAS, THERE WERE AFRICAN

AMERICANS, THERE WERE

HISPANICS, THERE WERE POOR,

THERE WERE COLLEGE EDUCATED,

THERE WERE STUDENTS, THERE WERE

COUPLES, THERE WERE ALL KINDS

OF PEOPLE, AND THIS IS

DEMOCRACY.

AND WE HAVE AN EVIDENCE OF

DEMOCRACY TODAY, DEMOCRACY IN

ACTION.

GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE FOR

THE PEOPLE AND BY THE PEOPLE

SHOULD NOT PERISH FROM THE

EARTH.

SO, THAT'S WHAT PRESIDENT

LINCOLN SAID VERY ELOQUENTLY

AND THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TODAY.

WE HAVE THE SECOND IN COMMAND

WITH US RIGHT NOW, AN OLD HAND

IN POLITICS.

HOW DO YOU SEE THE CULTURAL

SHIFT IN AMERICA, BY THE PEOPLE

OF THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE?

THE PEOPLE SPOKE.

THE PEOPLE SPOKE, YOU KNOW.

H.L.MIINKON SAID DEMOCRACY IS

GIVING WHAT THE PEOPLE WHAT

THEY WANT GOOD AND HARD.

WE'LL SEE FOUR YEARS OF PEOPLE

REGRETTING THIS DECISION IF

PRESIDENT OBAMA DOES HANG ON

BECAUSE IT'S CLEAR PEOPLE DON'T

WANT HUGE DEFICITS.

THEY DON'T WANT HUGE GOVERNMENT

CONTROL OF A LOT OF THEIR LIVES.BUT THEY SEEM TO WANT THE

SECURITY THAT HE OFFERS AS

OPPOSED TO MITT ROMNEY WHO IS

SAYING, LET'S BE THE COUNTRY

WE'VE ALWAYS BEEN THAT OUR

PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS WERE.

IT WILL BE AN INTERESTING FOUR

YEARS.

WE'LL END UP WITH BUYER'S

REMORSE.

IT WILL BE TOO LATE.

IT WILL BE TOO LATE.

WE CONSERVATIVES HAVE TALKED

FOR AWHILE ARE WE BECOMINGEUROPE.

IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE IF WE CAN

SPEND EIGHT YEARS THIS WAY AND

NOT REALLY HAVE TURNED A CORNER.

I PRAY WE HAVEN'T, BUT IT SEEMS

LIKE WE'RE ON A PATH THAT'S

VERY HARD TO COME BACK.

IF CONSERVATIVES WIN AGAIN THEY

CAN'T UNDO IT WITHOUT SO MUCHPAIN.

IT'S -- THIS IS -- I MEAN --

HOW MANY TRILLIONS?

16 TRILLION.

$16 TRILLION AND HE'S GOING

TO 20 TRILLION.

WE'LL NEVER GET OUT OF IT.

I MEAN, WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN

IS THE INTEREST ON THAT DEBT --

BECAUSE OUR INTEREST IS SO LOW,

SOONER OR LATER THE JAPANESE

AND THE CHINESE, THE ARABS AND

ALL THE OTHERS, THEY ARE

THECTION GOING TO TAKE YOUR

PAPER ANY LONGER, AT LEAST NOT

AT THESE INTEREST RATES.

-- AREN'T

IF THE INTEREST DOUBLES AND

TRIPLES AT THE LEVEL, WE WON'T

HAVE ANY MONEY IN THE BUDGET

FOR ANYTHING ANY MORE.

EXACTLY.

BUT THE PEOPLE DON'T SEEM TO

REALIZE THAT.

THEY DON'T SEEM TO REALIZE

IT.

AND IF CONSERVATIVES GET BACK

INTO POWER THEY'LL KOCH GET A

COUPLE YEARS.

THE PRESCRIPTION WILL BE PAIN

NECESSARY AND IT WILL BE THROWN

RIGHT BACK OUT.

THAT'S WHERE EUROPE IS.THE PEOPLE OF THE LEFT WON OVER

THE LAST 30 YEARS AND

CONSERVATIVES GET IN ONLY LONG

ENOUGH TO TRY TO START FIXING

THE PROBLEMS AND THEN THEY'RE

PUSHED RIGHT BACK OUT.

SO, MAYBE THAT'S OUR FUTURE.

I HOPE NOT.

THAT'S HORRIBLE.

THE SERVICES, THE GARBAGE

COLLECTION AND THE POLICE, THE

FIRE, THE MAINTENANCE OF THE

ROADS IN CERTAIN AREAS IN

AMERICA RIGHT NOW, THEY'RE

DIGGING UP PAVED ROADS BECAUSE

THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO CONTINUE

TO MAINTAIN THE HIGHWAYS.

THAT'S WHAT I SAW IN ZAIRE.

IT'S TERRIBLE.

A LOT OF PLAYSTATIONS WILL

EXPERIENCE THAT FIRSTHAND.

THEY'LL WONDER, WHO DID THIS TOUS?

THE ANSWER IS, WELL, YOU DID

IT, YOU HAD A CHOICE.

I DON'T THINK MITT ROMNEY WAS

THE GREATEST CANDIDATE IN THE

WORLD, BUT IT'S BEEN PRETTY

OBVIOUS FOUR YEARS THIS

COUNTRY'S LEADERSHIP IS NOT

GETTING IT FIXED.

WE'VE BEEN RUNNING DEFICIT

OF TRILLION DOLLARS A YEAR.

THE PEOPLE DON'T WANT DEFICITS,

BUT THEY WANT GOVERNMENTSERVICES.

RIGHT.

AND THEY DON'T WANT TO GIVE

UP ANY OF THE GOODIES THAT HAVE

BEEN GIVEN TO THEM.

THEY DO NOT WANT TO GIVE UP ANY

OF THEIR BENEFITS.

I WANT MY PART FROM GOVERNMENT.

AND THEY DON'T WANT LIFE TO

HAVE ANY RISKS WHATSOEVER.

THEY WANT SOMEONE MAKING SURE

THEY LOOK BACK.

POLITICAL FACT THAT AS YOU HAVE

MORE WOMEN WHO HAVE TO LOOK

AFTER THEMSELVES, TAKE CARE OF

THEIR CHILDREN BY THEMSELVES,

PUT ASIDE WHATEVER CAUSED ALL

THAT, IF THEY'RE THERE AND THEY

VOTE IN LARGER NUMBERS FOR

PEOPLE LIKE OBAMA AND THE

DEMOCRATS, THEY HAVE TO FIGURE

THAT OUT.

HOW ARE THEY?

OBAMA HAS BEEN RULING BY

EXECUTIVE FIAT.

HE JUST IGNORES CONGRESS.

HE THINKS HE'S THE ANOINTED ONE.

I THINK THE BRIGHT SPOTS ARE

THOSE STATES, WE HAVE 30

GOVERNORS NOW THAT HOLD OUTLIKE IT IS.

MOST REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS

ANYWAY HAVE MADE THESE GREAT

STRIDES IN THEIR STATE, WALTER,

CASEY, THESE PEOPLE BOBBY

JINDAHL, IF THEY HAVE A

DIFFERENT UNDERSTANDING THAN

PEOPLE HAVE IN THIS GENERATION

OF AMERICA.

I HOPE SO.

SOMEBODY COMES OUT AND

TEACHES YOU, HE AGAINST

EDUCATION, YOU KNOW THE GAME.

WHEW.

LET'S GO QUICKLY BACK TO JAY

SEKULOW.

GUYS, WHAT KIND OF POLICIES ARE

WE GOING TO EXPECT IF OBAMA

CONTINUES WHAT WE CAN SEE IN

THE ELECTION AND HE WINS OHIO,

HE SWEEPS THE TABLE?

WELL, I THINK IN TERMS THE

PRESIDENT IS GOING TO UTILIZE,

PAT, THE EXECUTIVE DECISION

MAKING THAT HE'S DONE.

HE'S GOING TO TRY TO GET HIS

POLICIES THROUGH REGULATION.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO WORK

LEGISLATIVELY, BUT THIS IS A

PRESIDENT THAT IS CERTAINLY NOT

SHIED AWAY FROM USING HIS

EXECUTIVE POWER.

I WOULD SAY OFTENTIMES ABUSING

THAT EXECUTIVE POWER.

AND BASICALLY LEGISLATING FROM

THE OVAL OFFICE.

I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO SEETHAT.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO BE

PREPARED TO CHALLENGE

REGULATIONS AS THEY COME

FORWARD BECAUSE THEY WILL BE

CONTINUED ENCROACHMENTS ONLIBERTY AND FREEDOM.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO

REALIZE.

THIS PRESIDENT WILL UTILIZE

THOSE METHODS TO GET HIS AGENDATHROUGH.

WE'VE BEEN PREPARED TO

CHALLENGE THOSE IN COURT AS

NECESSARY.

I THINK THAT WILL BE FREQUENT.

JOHN, THE AP IS CALLING

COLORADO TO OBAMA AS WELL.

JOHN, HOW DO YOU SEE IT, WHAT'S

HE GOING TO DO?

THE PRESIDENT HAS TWO

CHOICES.

HE CAN ASSUME THE LOGICAL

AGENDA AND DIVIDE THE COUNTRY

FURTHER, OR HE CAN RECOGNIZE

THAT THE COUNTRY HAS REJECTED

BY NOT HAVING CREATED JOBS FOR

THE LAST FOUR YEARS HIS

ECONOMIC POLICIES.

THERE'S $2 TRILLION OF CAPITAL

WAITING ON THE SIDE LINES.

AND OBAMA'S ELECTION IS ONLY

GOING TO MAKE THAT MORE

UNCERTAIN AND COULD TIP US INTO

RECESSION.

SO, PRESIDENT OBAMA IS A CHOICE.

TWO YEARS AGO AFTER THE

REPUBLICANS LOST THE 2010

ELECTION, HE AGREED TO EXTEND

THE BUSH TAX CUTS BECAUSE HE

RECOGNIZED HOW MUCH DAMAGE THAT

KIND OF TAX INCREASE WOULD DO

TO THE ECONOMY.I THINK THAT IF HE DOESN'T WANT

TO TIP THE ECONOMY INTO THE

RECESSION, IF HE'S PRACTICAL AT

ALL, HE'LL RECOGNIZE HE HAS TO

WORK WITH THE REPUBLICANS AND

NOT PURSUE AN EXCLUSIVELY THE

AGENDA.

HE DOESN'T HAVE TO FACE THE

VOTERS ANY MORE.

HE'S NOW INTO A LEGACY.

ONE OF THE LEGACIES HE WANTS TO

LEAVE IS A DECENT ECONOMY.

AND UNLESS HE TRULY BELIEVES

THAT HIS INTERVENTIONISTPOLICIES WILL MAKE THE ECONOMY

BETTER THERE IS A CHANCE THAT

HE CAN CUT A REASONABLE

COMPROMISE WITH THE REPUBLICANS

SO WE DON'T FACE THE LARGEST

TAX INCREASE IN AMERICAN

HISTORY STARTING ON DECEMBER

31ST, WHICH WILL PERHAPS TIP

THE ECONOMY INTO RECESSION.

WE HAVE THIS FISCAL CLIFF,

THE SEQUESTER THAT'S BUILT IN.

IT WILL DECIMATE THE MILITARY

IF IT GOES THROUGH.

DO YOU THINK HE'LL LEAVE THAT

IN PLACE?

HE'S BEEN UNWILLING TO MAKE ANYCOMPROMISE.

MAYBE YOU SAY HE DOESN'T HAVE

TO -- HE'S IN FOUR YEARS.

HE DID, HE DID EXTEND THE

BUSH TAX CUTS IN 2010.

YES.

THERE HAVE BEEN OTHER TIMES

IN WHICH THE PRESIDENT HAS COME

CLOSE TO MAKING SOME KIND OF A

BARGAIN WITH JOHN BAINER IN

2011

NOW THAT HE DOESN'T HAVE TO

FACE THE VOTERS IT'S ANYONE'S

CALL AS TO WHICH DIRECTION HEWILL GO.

BUT IF HE CONTINUES TO PURSUE A

HARD LEFT AGENDA HE'S GOING TO

DEAL WITH ANOTHER RECESSION AND

AN ECONOMY THAT IS NOT GOING TO

CREATE ANY JOBS.

EVEN PRESIDENT OBAMA IS NOW IN

THE LEGACY BUILDING BUSINESS.

WELL, LET'S HOPE THAT HE'S

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE.

FROM THE RHETORIC IN THE

CAMPAIGN WAS, WE'VE DONE IT

RIGHT.

THE ECONOMY IS TURNING AROUND.

THEY WANT TO GO BACK TO THE

FAILED POLICIES THAT BROUGHT US

TO THIS MESS.

SO, THAT WAS WHAT WAS SAID.

WELL, JOHN, OUR TIME IS OUT.

THANK YOU, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, FOR BEING WITH US.

I WANT TO APPRECIATE -- EXPRESS

MY APPRECIATION TO OUR GUESTS

FOR THIS PARTICULAR SEGMENT

THIS EVENING AND TO THOSE OF

YOU ON THE CONSERVATIVE

STANDPOINT, I'M SURE WE HAVEN'T

BEEN GIVEN THE BEST OF NEWS.

BUT IT'S WHAT'S OUT THERE.

SO, UNLESS THERE IS SOME

DRAMATIC SHIFT THAT I DON'T

SEE, WE'LL WAKE UP TOMORROW AND

WE'LL HAVE THE SAME PRESIDENT

WE'VE GOT NOW.
