This week on The Brody File, we are joined by two influential congressmen who are making life difficult for President Obama: Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Mike Lee. Also, John Jessup joins us with his movie review of, “Noah.” Should ... Read Transcript


THIS WEEK ON "THE BRODY

FILE," THE DYNAMIC DUO ON

CAPITOL HILL, THEY'RE

CAUSING ALL SORTS OF

PROBLEMS FOR THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

CLEARLY THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL CARRIES

WATER FOR THE PRESIDENT AND

HIS POLICIES.

David: ALSO, WILL JEB

BUSH RUN FOR PRESIDENT?

WE GO INTO "THE BRODY

FILE'S" VIDEO VAULT

SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS.

IF I DECIDE TO RUN FOR

OFFICE, IT WILL BE BASED ON

WHAT I BELIEVE AND BASED ON

MY RECORD.

David: PLUS, WHAT'S UP

WITH THIS?

JESUS AS A MUSLIM ON A

BILLBOARD.

AND WE HEAD TO JOHN'S MOVIE

CORNER FOR HIS TAKE ON THE

NEW MOVIE "NOAH."

"THE BRODY FILE" IS ON THE

AIR AND ACROSS AMERICA RIGHT

NOW.

*

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

WELL, THIS WEEK WE HAVE THE

DYNAMIC DUO.

IT IS NOT BATMAN AND ROBIN.

NO, FOLKS, WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT POWERFUL CONGRESSMAN

DARRELL ISSA AND SENATOR

MIKE LEE.

THEY ARE UP ON CAPITOL HILL

FIGHTING THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION TOOTH AND

NAIL.

WE BEGIN WITH DARRELL ISSA.

HE HAS HIS SIGHTS SET AND

WHAT HE PERCEIVES AS

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

CONSTITUTIONAL OVERREACH.

HE THINKS THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL AND OTHER

ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS ARE

OUT OF BOUNDS WHEN IT COMES

TO PLAYING POLITICS AT THE

I.R.S. AND ALSO INSIDE THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL'S OFFICE.

HERE HE IS.

CLEARLY THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL CARRIES

WATER FOR THE PRESIDENT AND

HIS POLICIES.

THESE AREN'T ACCIDENTS,

WHETHER IT IS THE SECRETARY,

WHO OBVIOUSLY COULDN'T GET A

WEBSITE TO WORK, BUT SHE

SUPPORTS HIS POLICY.

AND THE SAME THING FOR THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL, WHO HAS

USED THE DISCRETION OF

PROSECUTING OR NOT

PROSECUTING, DEALING OR NOT

DEALING WITH CASES TO MOVE

THE AGENDA OF THE

PRESIDENT.

David: ISSA DOESN'T

MESS AROUND.

AND HE HAS BEEN CRACKING THE

WHIP ON THE ADMINISTRATION

WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR

TREATMENT OF 501C TEA PARTY

GROUPS VISA THE I.R.S.

I THINK THE PRESIDENT

FEARS TWO THINGS, FREEDOM OF

EXPRESSION AFTER THE

CITIZENS UNITED CASE, AND

THE GROWTH OF GRASSROOTS

GROUPS, GROUPS THAT YOU

COULDN'T IDENTIFY WITH A

POLITICAL PARTY, BUT RATHER

WITH A SET OF PRINCIPLES, AS

THE TEA PARTY ORGANIZATIONS

AROUND THE COUNTRY HAVE.

I THINK THE PRESIDENT

REALLY, REALLY DOES FEAR

THEM.

YOU CAN GO AFTER THE COKE

BROTHERS BY NAME, BUT THE

TEA PARTY ISN'T ONE PARTY OR

ONE GROUP.

IT IS PEOPLE ALL AROUND

AMERICA WHO SIMPLY WANT TO

GET BACK TO THE PRINCIPLES

OF LIBERTY.

David: AND NOW ON TO

MIKE LEE, THE FIRE-BREATHING

TEA PARTY SENATOR.

HE DOESN'T GET THE HEADLINES

LIKE TED CRUZ AND MARCO

RUBIO.

HERE IS LEE.

WE CAN'T EXPECT TO WIN

THE UPCOMING ELECTION BY

DEFAULT.

WE HAVE TO EARN IT.

I THINK THE TIME IS RIGHT

FOR US TO DEVELOP A

CONSERVATIVE REFORM AGENDA,

ONE THAT FOCUSES ON

AMERICA'S GROWING

OPPORTUNITY DEFICIT.

ONE THAT SHOWS UP IN THE

FORM OF IMMOBILITY AMONG THE

POOR AND INSECURITY IN THE

MIDDLE CLASS.

THESE ARE THE KINDS OF

THINGS THAT CAN UNITE THE

PARTY AND EXPAND THE PARTY

SO WE CAN WIN ELECTION AND

SO WE CAN IMPROVE OUR

GOVERNMENT AND MAKE IT A

BETTER PLACE TO LIVE.

David: AND HE HAS

RONALD REAGAN IN MIND WHEN

IT COMES TO THAT WINNING

TICKET.

I BELIEVE WHAT RONALD

REAGAN SAID ON THIS POINT,

WE NEED BOLD COLORS, NO PAST

PASTELS.

AND NEVER HAVE WE BEEN

PRESENTED WITH A BETTER

OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A CLEAR

DISTINCTION BETWEEN WHAT WE

REPRESENT AND WHAT THE LEFT

REPRESENTS.

WHAT WE WANT, THE POLICIES

THAT WE AD KATIE, WILL

ADVOCATE WILL LEAD TO A

BETTER AMERICA, ESPECIALLY

FOR THE POOR AND MIDDLE

CLASS WHO ARE STRUGGLING

UNDER THIS ADMINISTRATION'S

FAILED POLICIES.

David: BUT THE KEY

QUESTION FOR LEE AND HIS

BUDDIES IS, HOW DO THEY CUT

BUDGET, PROMOTE FISCAL

CONSERVATISM, WITHOUT

LOOKING LIKE, QUITE FRANKLY,

MEAN, OLD OGRES.

CURRENT POLICY IS LOCKING

A LOT OF AMERICANS IN

POVERTY.

IT IS CREATING A HUGE

DISINCENTIVE, AND NOT JUST

THE KIND THAT MAKES SOMEONE

NOT INCLINED TO WANT TO GET

A JOB, BUT IT ACTUALLY

PUNISHES PEOPLE FOR GETTING

A JOB.

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE IN 34

STATES IN THE DISTRICT OF

COLUMBIA WHO WOULD SEE THEIR

STANDARD OF LIVING GO DOWN

IF THEY ABANDONED WELFARE

AND TOOK AN ENTRY-LEVEL

JOB.

IN MANY INSTANCES YOU'LL SEE

A PERSON IN THAT

CIRCUMSTANCES FACING AN

EFFECTIVE 90% MARGINAL TAX

RATE.

WHEN YOU ADD UP WHAT THEY

PAY IN TAXES AND WHAT THEY

WOULD LOSE IN WELFARE

BENEFITS WHEN THEY TAKE

THEIR FIRST JOB.

WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR FIRST

JOB, YOU BECOME ELIGIBLE FOR

A SECOND JOB AND YOU CAN

WORK YOUR WAY UP THE

LADDER.

BUT IF FAILED GOVERNMENT

POLICIES ARE KEEPING YOU IN

POVERTY, IF THEY'RE HOLDING

YOU IN THOSE PROGRAMS

BECAUSE THEY MAKING IT TOO

RISKY FOR YOU TO GO AND GET

A JOB, THEN YOU'RE GOING TO

BE LOST IN POVERTY AND

THAT'S NOT THE AMERICAN

WAY.

David: WE BELIEVE THAT

PART OF

A BETTER AMERICA IS

A BETTER TAX SYSTEM,

SOMETHING HE IS TRYING TO

DEVELOP ON THE HILL.

I INTRODUCED THE FAIR

FAMILY TAX REFORM ACT.

THE IDEA IS TO SIMPLIFY THE

TAX CODE, CONVERTING OUR

SYSTEM INTO A TWO-RATE

SYSTEM.

AND ADDING TO THAT A LARGER,

NEW CHILD TAX CREDIT.

THIS IS THERE TO OFFSET A

COUPLE OF PENALTIES THAT ARE

BUILT INTO THE CURRENT TAX

CODE.

THE MARRIAGE TAX PENALTY,

AND A LESSER KNOWN PENALTY

THAT I REFER TO IS A PARENT

TAX PENALTY.

THE WORKING MOMS AND DADS

CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIAL

SECURITY AND MEDICARE

TWICE.

ONCE WHEN THEY PAY THEIR

TAXES, AND AGAIN AS THEY'RE

INCURRING THE SUBSTANTIAL

COSTS OF RAISING THEIR

CHILDREN.

OUR CURRENT TAX SYSTEM

DOESN'T TAKE INTO ACCOUNT

THIS EXTRA CONTRIBUTION.

IT IS UNFAIRLY TREATING

AMERICA'S MOMS AND DADS WHO

ARE ESSENTIAL FOR PRESERVING

NOT ONLY OUR COUNTRY, BUT

THE SENIOR ENTITLEMENT

PROGRAMS.

David: BUT

MR. SENATOR, IS TAX REFORM A

REALITY RIGHT NOW?

HARRY REID AND THE PRESIDENT

MAY HAVE A THING OR TWO TO

SAY ABOUT IT?

THE FACT THAT THE ODDS

ARE AGAINST US NOW, IT

DOESN'T MEAN FOR US TO START

PUTTING THESE IDEAS

FORWARD.

IT TAKES A WHILE FOR THESE

IDEAS TO PERCOLATE.

WE'VE GOT TO GET TO THE

POINT, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE,

WHERE WE CAN REFORM OUR TAX

SYSTEM.

David: AND THAT IS

MIKE LEE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

TIME FOR SOME 2016

PRESIDENTIAL NEWS.

HERE IS A QUESTION FOR YOU:

WILL JEB BUSH RUN FOR

PRESIDENT?

THAT IS THE QUESTION.

[SCREAMING]

David: SORRY.

A LOT OF SCREAMING, I KNOW.

THE COUNTRY MAY NOT BE READY

FOR ANOTHER BUSH RUNNING FOR

PRESIDENT, BUT, HEY, IT

COULD HAPPEN.

GEORGE'S YOUNGER BROTHER IS

THINKING ABOUT IT.

THERE ARE LOTS OF POWERFUL

AND RICH G.O.P. DONORS THAT

ARE WORKING BACK CHANNELS

RIGHT NOW TO PERSUADE BUSH

TO RUN.

THEY THINK CHRIS CHRISTIE IS

DAMAGED GOODS BECAUSE OF THE

BRIDGE SCANDAL.

YOU KNOW, WE SPOKE WITH JEB

BUSH ABOUT THIS A FEW MONTHS

AGO ON THE BRODY FILE, SO

LET'S DIP INTO THE VIDEO

VAULT FOR THAT.

*

I AM GOING TO BE THE ONLY

PERSON THAT EVER DOESN'T ASK

YOU ABOUT 2016.

I'M NOT GOING TO ASK YOU

THAT BECAUSE EVERYBODY

DOES.

I AM CURIOUS, THOUGH --

OH, GOOD.

David: I DID HAVE A

QUESTION, THOUGH ABOUT SOME

OF THE CRITICS WHO SAY, IF

SOMEONE LIKE JEB BUSH DID

RUN, HE WOULD BE THIS

MAINSTREAM REPUBLICAN

CANDIDATE WHO WOULDN'T

APPEAL TO THE BASE OF THE

PARTY.

IT'S ON THE INTERNET.

IT'S GOT TO BE TRUE.

[LAUGHTER]

David: WHAT DO YOU SAY

TO THOSE CRITICS THAT SAY,

WAIT --

LOOK, IF I DECIDE TO RUN

FOR OFFICE AGAIN, IT WILL BE

BASED ON WHAT I BELIEVE, AND

IT WILL BE BASED ON MY

RECORD.

AND THAT RECORD WAS ONE OF

SOLVING PROBLEMS COMPLETELY

FROM A CONSERVATIVE

PERSPECTIVE.

I CUT TAXES EVERY YEAR.

I SHRUNK THE SIZE OF

GOVERNMENT.

WE REFORMED THE THINGS THAT

WERE BROKEN.

OUR MEDICAID PROGRAM WAS

BROKEN, AND OUR EDUCATION

SYSTEM WAS A COMPLETE

DISASTER.

WE CREATED A GREAT BUSINESS

ENVIRONMENT THAT MADE

FLORIDA A GREAT PLACE TO DO

BUSINESS.

I ACTED ON MY CORE BELIEFS

ON SOCIAL ISSUES AS

GOVERNOR.

I WILL BE ABLE TO, I THINK,

MANAGE MY WAY THROUGH ALL OF

THE CHIRPERS OUT THERE.

David: CHIRP, CHIRP,

CHIRP, CHIRP, CHIRP.

IF JEB BUSH DOES GET IN, BY

THE WAY, HE WOULD BE

CONSIDERED THE INSTANT

FRONT-RUNNER FOR THE G.O.P.

NOMINATION.

I'M SAYING THAT AND IT'S

TRUE.

ALL RIGHT?

WHEN WE COME BACK, PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S SIGNATURE DOMESTIC

POLICY ACHIEVEMENT BEARS HIS

NAME, IT'S OBAMACARE.

THE LATEST ON THAT

OBAMACARE, LIBERALS PRAISE

IT, AND CONSERVATIVES PRAISE

IT, TOO, BUT THEY PRAISE IT

AT THE PORCELAIN ALTER, IF

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

BACK IN A MOMENT

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE,"

EVERYBODY.

TIME TO DISCUSS OBAMACARE,

AND THAT MEANS TIME TO TUNE

INTO THE SOAP OPERA WE CALL

"AS OBAMACARE TURNS."

AS OBAMACARE TURNS.

David: THIS WEEK OUR

SOAP OPERA CORRESPONDENT,

NONE OTHER THAN JENNIFER

WISHON, A.K.A. JENNY AND THE

"B" BLOCK.

MOMENT

* YOU GO, GIRL

David: THE WHITE HOUSE

IS POINTING TO THE LAW AS A

SUCCESS, AND CONSERVATIVES

ARE THROWING UP, OF COURSE.

WHAT IS THE DEAL?

JENNY HAS MORE ON THAT FROM

THE WHITE HOUSE.

Reporter: FOUR YEARS

AFTER PRESIDENT OBAMA SIGNED

HIS CONTROVERSIAL AFFORDABLE

CARE ACT INTO LAW, IT IS UP

AND RUNNING, BUT MANY

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE HEALTH

OF OBAMACARE REMAIN.

AS AMERICANS WHO HAD

PROCRASTINATED SIGNING UP

FOR OBAMACARE OR IN SOME

CASES DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS

A DEADLINE RUSHED TO SIGN

UP.

MORE COMPUTER GLITCHES ON

HEALT ONhealthcare.gov,

BUT IN THE END PRESIDENT

OBAMA GOT THE NUMBER OF

ENROLLEES HE WANTED.

NOW THE HARD PART BEGINS,

SIFTING THROUGH THE NAMES TO

LEARN MORE ABOUT WHO SIGNED

UP.

TO HELP THE YOUNG PEOPLE ON

THE LIST.

TO HELP GET THEM ENGAGED

IN THE PROCESS, YOU HAVE TO

CONVINCE THEM THAT IT IS

IMPORTANT FOR THEIR HEALTH

WELL-BEING AND FINANCIAL

WELL-BEING AS WELL.

Reporter: DANIEL COX'S

RESEARCH SHOWS THE

MILLENNIUM GENERATION

SUPPORTS GOVERNMENT

SPONSORED HEALTH CARE.

BUT EARLY NUMBERS SUGGEST

THE NUMBER OF 18 TO

34-YEAR-OLDS ENROLLED FALL

SHORT OF THE

ADMINISTRATION'S GOAL.

FOR MANY YOUNG PEOPLE PAYING

HIGH PREMIUMS FOR HEALTH

INSURANCE ISN'T EVEN CLOSE

TO BEING A PRIORITY.

THE LEAST LIKELY FOR

PEOPLE TO SIGN UP ARE YOUNG

MEN WHO ARE LOW INCOME AND

NON-WHITE.

AND THESE FOLKS ARE OBAMA'S

STRONGEST SUPPORTERS.

SO WHEN WE LOOK FOR REASON,

I THINK IT POINTS LESS TO

THE POLITICAL REASON AND

MORE OF A FINANCIAL REASON.

SO THE FINANCIAL OUTLOOK

IS VERY, VERY BAD FOR PEOPLE

WHO ARE ENROLLED IN THESE

CHANGES IF THEY DO NOT GET A

SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF YOUNGER

PEOPLE.

Reporter: ANOTHER KEY

PERFORMANCE INDICATORS HOW

MANY PEOPLE CLOSED THE DEAL

BY PAYING THEIR FIRST

MONTH'S PREMIUMS.

AND HOW MANY PEOPLE NOW

ENROLLED IN OBAMACARE WERE

PREVIOUSLY UNINSURED.

REMEMBER, SIGNING UP THOSE

PEOPLE WAS THE WHOLE POINT.

THE MONTHS AHEAD WILL ALSO

REVEAL WHETHER THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT IS ALSO

AFFORDABLE, OR WHETHER HIGH

DEDUCTIBLES AND NARROW

PHYSICIANS' NETWORKS WILL

CAUSE IT TO FAIL.

I DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE

POLITICS.

BUT I WORRY ABOUT IS THE LAW

PROVIDING A REAL BENEFIT TO

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

CONTINUE TO INSIST THERE ARE

MORE HOLES IN THE LAW, A

TARGET SHOT BY JOHN WAYNE.

IT HAS BECOME THE LEGAL

EQUIVALENT OF SWISS CHEESE.

Reporter: HOUSE

REPUBLICANS HAVE VOTED TO

REPEAL THE LAW DOZENS OF

TIMES.

NOW THEY'RE WORKING TO COME

UP WITH A REPLACEMENT.

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE

GETTING INSURANCE THROUGH

THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT,

THEY'RE GOING TO LOOK AT

THEIR OWN EXPERIENCE.

AND ANY MAN WHO DOESN'T

WANT TO COOPERATE, I'LL MAKE

HIM WISH HE HADN'T BEEN

FORM.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

ARE PUSHING OBAMACARE AS ONE

OF THE MAJOR REASONS THEY

SHOULD BE RETURNED TO THE

MAJORITY IN THE SENATE THIS

YEAR.

SO NOW THAT OBAMACARE IS UP

AND RUNNING, WE'LL SEE IF

THE ARGUMENT RESONATES NOW.

David: ALL RIGHT,

THANKS, JENNY.

ALL RIGHT, COMING NEXT, GET

A LOAD OF THIS BILLBOARD.

IT SAYS, JESUS IS A MUSLIM.

THE HEAD-SCRATCHING STORY,

NEXT.

DAVID: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE BRODY FILE."

SOME PEOPLE SAY THERE IS A

FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING,

AND NOW PRESIDENT OBAMA AND

POPE FRANCIS HAVE FINALLY

MET FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

ROME.

PRESIDENT OBAMA GAVE THE

POPE A BOX OF SEEDS.

THAT'S RIGHT, A BOX OF

CARROT SEEDS AS A GIFT.

I'M SURE THERE IS A REASON

FOR THAT.

SOME SAY IT SYMBOLIZES A NEW

BEGINNING AFTER YEARS OF

STRAINED RELATIONS BETWEEN

CATHOLICS AND THE

ADMINISTRATION.

ONE OF THE REASONS FOR THE

STRAINED RELATIONSHIP, OF

COURSE, INCLUDES THE

PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE PLAN

WHICH FORCES EMPLOYERS TO

PROVIDE CONTRACEPTION.

SOMETHING THE VATICAN DOES

NOT SUPPORT.

TWO ISSUES THEY CAN AGREE ON

IS POVERTY AND SOCIAL

JUSTICE ISSUES.

AND NOW TO SCOTT WALKER.

NOW HE IS MAKING NEWS FOR

STANDING UP FOR CHRISTIAN

BELIEFS, FOR HIS CHRISTIAN

BELIEFS.

WALKER POSTED THIS

SCRIPTURE, PHILIPPINES 4:

15, IT SAYS, "I CAN DO ALL

THINGS THROUGH CHRIST, WHO

STRENGTHENS ME."

APPARENTLY AN ATHEIST GROUP

DOESN'T LIKE IT, AND THEY'VE

ASKED WALKER TO REMOVE THE

SCRIPTURE.

REALLY?

A SPOKESMAN FOR WALKER SAYS

THE GOVERNOR HAS NO PLANS TO

BOW TO THE ATHEISTS'

DEMANDS.

NOW TO A STORY ABOUT A

SERIES OF BILLBOARDS IN OHIO

SPARKING QUITE A BIT OF

CONTROVERSY.

THAT BILLBOARD READS, "JESUS

IS A MUSLIM."

HERE IS OTHER ONE.

IT SAYS, "MUSLIMS LOVE

JESUS, TOO."

A MUSLIM GROUP BASED OUT OF

COLUMBUS PUT THE BILLBOARDS

UP TO EDUCATE PEOPLE ABOUT

ISLAM.

THEY CLAIM MUSLIMS ARE

REALLY CHRISTIANS, TOO.

HUH?

BUT MANY CHRISTIANS IN THE

AREA FIND THE BILLBOARDS

OFFENSIVE AND THEY PLAN TO

TAKE TO THE STREETS TO CLAIM

JESUS IS LORD AND NOT A

MUSLIM.

WHEN WE COME BACK, THE

CONTROVERSIAL MOVIE "NOAH,"

SHOULD CHRISTIANS GO SEE

IT?

MAN CORRUPTS THIS WORLD.

THEY MUST BE DESTROYED.

A BIG FLOOD IS COMING.

WE MUST BUILD A VESSEL TO

HOLD THE INNOCENT.

David: OUR MOVIE

CRITIC, JOHN JESSUP, IN THE

HOUSE WITH HIS REVIEW.

NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

WHEN YOU THINK OF NOAH AND

THE ARK, WHAT COMES TO

MIND?

HOW ABOUT N NOAH'S LOVE FOR

GOD.

AND NOW WE HAVE NOAH, THE

MOVIE, STARRING RUSSELL

CROWE AS NOAH.

OY-GEVALT, HERE IS A CLIP.

GET YOUR MOTHER.

TAKE THEM ON.

David: WELL, LOOK,

"THE BRODY FILE" NOT

THINKING THAT'S HOW IT WENT

DOWN THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO,

BUT LET'S BRING IN OUR BRODY

FILE MOVIE CRITIC JOHN

JESSUP, AS WE ENTER JOHN'S

MOVIE CORNER.

AND JOHN JOINS YOU NOW.

JOHN, YOU'VE SEEN THIS

MOVIE, AND YOU HAVE THE

POPCORN OR SKITTLES -- WHAT

IS YOUR REFRESHMENT OF

CHOICE?

POPCORN.

David: LOOK, THE

MOVIE, GIVE ME THE REVIEW.

WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF IT?

I THINK THIS MOVIE HAS A

LOT OF POTENTIAL.

YOU HAVE THE EPIC BIBLICAL

STORY OF NOAH AND THE GREAT

FLOOD, AND YOU HAVE A STAR

CAST, WITH RUSSELL CROWE,

AND YOU HAVE THE MONEY AND

BACKING AND RESOURCES OF A

MAJOR HOLLYWOOD PRODUCTION

COMPANY.

CLEARLY THERE WAS A LOT OF

BUZZ ABOUT THIS MOVIE.

IT TOOK IN, WHAT,

$44 MILLION OPENING

WEEKEND.

HAVING SAID ALL OF THAT, I'M

GOING TO BORROW SOMEONE

ELSE'S PHRASE HERE, I REALLY

FEEL LIKE THIS MOVIE MISSED

THE BOAT IN SO MANY

DIFFERENT WAYS.

HIHISTORICALLY AND

SCRIPTURALLY.

BY THE END OF THE FILM, WHAT

YOU'RE WATCHING IS SO

UNRECOGNIZABLE ABOUT THE

STORY OF NOAH.

David: NOT THAT YOUR

GOING TO PLAY THEOLOGIAN, IT

IS ONE THING TO TAKE

CREATIVE LICENSE, BUT THEY

SEEM TO HAVE GONE A BIT OVER

THE TOP.

WHAT IS THAT, A ROCK

MONSTER.

THEY TOOK ABOUT FALLEN

ANGELS, WHICH WE DO KNOW

SCOIFORTS I EXISTS IN THE

BIBLE.

I WAS ABLE TO LOOK PAST A

LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS, THE

SCIENCE FICTION ELEMENTS,

AND THE USE OF SOME

CHARACTERS WHO WERE LIKE

SHAW MEN OR MAGICIANS.

WHAT WAS HARDER TO LOOK PAST

WAS THE THEOLOGICAL

STORIES.

GENESIS 6 SAYS HE FOUND

FAVOR WITH NOAH BECAUSE NOAH

WAS A RIGHT WHICH IS MAN.

BUT BY THE END OF THE FILM,

YOU GET THE SENSE THAT NOAH

IS THIS CRAZED MADMAN WHO

BELIEVES THAT IT IS GOD'S

INTENT TO WIPE OUT ALL OF

MAN, INCLUDING HE AND HIS

WIFE AND FAMILY.

SAY YOU GO ALONG WITH THAT

PREMISE, HIS WIFE SAYS,

ISN'T HAVE GOODNESS IN YOUR

HEART ALL THAT MATTERS?

IF YOU GO ALONG WITH THAT

PREMISES, WHAT IT IS

SUGGESTING IS THAT NOAH WAS

OPENLY DEFIANT TO GOD'S

WILL.

I WOULD ADMIT THAT NOAH WAS

CARRYING A HEAVY BURDEN,

WHICH APPEARED TO MAKE HIM

REBELLIOUS, BUT I DON'T

THINK SO.

BUILDING THE ARK IS

OBEDIENCE.

David: JOHN, THANK

YOU.

BEFORE WE GET OUT OF HERE,

WE WANT TO SHOW YOU, BECAUSE

WE BELIEVE THAT RUSSELL

CROWE -- VERONICA, DO WE

HAVE THIS PICTURE?

RUSSELL CROWE AS NOAH -- BUT

YOU, JOHN JESSUP, TELL ME

THAT WOULDN'T BE A BETTER

PICTURE.

THIS MOVIE WOULD HAVE BEEN

MUCH BETTER WITH YOU IN THE

LEAD ROLE.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

I'M NOT SURE IT WOULD HAVE

MADE $44 MILLION ON OPENING

WEEKEND.

PROBABLY $44, IF THAT.

David: JOHN'S MOVIE

CORNER.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN HE'LL BE

BACK NEXT.

YOU WILL BE BACK, THOUGH?

EY I HOPE SO.

David: BACK IN A

MOMENT IN WITH OUR OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

David: WELCOME BACK.

NOTHING SAYS APRIL LIKE THE

NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS, AND THE

START OF A POLITICAL

CAMPAIGN SEASON.

THE TWO WORLDS COLLIDE IN

THIS EDITION OF THE OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

*

[HAVA NAGILA]

David: IT IS A CASE OF

MISTAKEN IDENTITY.

ALL OF THE MAJOR PLAYERS ARE

HERE.

WE HAVE POLITICIANS,

EXPENSIVE AD COMPAIGNS, AND

THE DUKE BLUE DEVILS.

KENTUCKY SENATOR, MITCH

McCONNELL BEGAN HIS

CAMPAIGN WITH THIS AD, IN

CELEBRATION OF ALL THINGS

AMERICA AND THE GREAT

COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY.

IF WE WIN THE MAJORITY, I

WILL WORK EVERY DAY TO

CHANGE IT.

THIS IS OUR TIME TO GET IT

RIGHT.

THIS IS THE MOMENT.

LET'S GO OUT THERE AND DO

IT.

David: BEAUTIFUL AD.

NOTHING SAYS KENTUCKY LIKE

HARD WORK, BEAUTIFUL SCENERY

AND THE BLUE DEVELOPS.

DEVILS.

THE CREATORS OF THE AD ADDED

THE 2000 WIN.

BLUE IS BLUE, EVEN STILL,

HIS OPPONENT, MATT BEVIN

WASTED NO TIME POINTING OUT

THE FLUB.

MARCH MADNESS IN

KENTUCKY, COMMITMENT,

COURAGE, YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE

IT.

EVEN IF YOUR TEAM IS ALREADY

OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT.

David: CAN WE CUT HIM

SOME SLACK.

ANYONE CAN MIX UP A TEAM OR

TWO.

THAT'S MY STORY AND I

STICKING WITH IT.

THAT'S IT FOR THIS WEEK.

GOD BLESS YOU, EVERYBODY,

AND WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT

TIME.
