The Brody File: The Man Of The Hour - Feb. 14, 2013

The Brody File goes one-on-one with U.S. Senator Marco Rubio. He's the man of the hour as conservatives see in him a future president. Also, we talk with Steven Law, President and CEO of American Crossroads who is feeling the heat from Tea Party ... Read Transcript


David: THIS WEEK ON

"THE BRODY FILE," WHAT IS

OUR STATE OF THE UNION?

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS A FEW

IDEAS, AND SO DOES MARCO

RUBIO, WHO GOES ONE-ON-ONE

WITH "THE BRODY FILE."

I BELIEVE THE FREE

ENTERPRISE SYSTEM IS THE

SOURCE OF OUR MIDDLE CLASS

PROSPERITY, AND THE

PRESIDENT THINKS IT IS THE

GOVERNMENT.

David: ALSO, WHAT'S UP

WITH THE G.O.P., HOW MUCH

COMMUNITY IS THERE,

EXACTLY.

WE TALK TO A GUY CAUGHT IN

THE CROSS-FIRE.

STEVEN LOWELL, THE PRESIDENT

OF THE CONSERVATIVE AMERICAN

CROSSROADS GROUP.

OUR HOPE IS WE CAN GET

PEOPLE TOGETHER, AND FIND

THE MOST CONSERVATIVE

CANDIDATE THAT CAN GET

ELECTED.

David: AND JENNIFER

WISHON IS HERE ON THE

LOWDOWN WITH THE FALLOUT

FROM THE POPE'S

RESIGNATION.

ALSO, WE HAVE A VIDEO PROOF

OF A GUY DOING SOMETHING

EVEN DUMBER THAN A

POLITICIAN.

WATERMELON SLICING ON HIS

STOMACH, OUC OUCH!

"THE BRODY FILE" IS NEXT.

*

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

SO...WHAT IS THE STATE OF

THE UNION?

NO, NOT THE STATE OF THE

LIBERAL S.C.I. U., NOT THAT

UNION.

NO, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

STATE OF OUR UNION.

THAT'S RIGHT, AMERICA, THE

COUNTRY WE ALL LOVE, RIGHT?

*

David: WELL, MAYBE NOT

EVERYBODY.

HERE IS PRESIDENT OBAMA

STROLLING DOWN THE AISLE FOR

HIS STATE OF THE UNION

SPEECH.

DEMOCRATS WERE THROWING ROSE

PEDALS IN FRONT OF WHERE HE

WALKED -- NO, THEY WEREN'T

DOING THAT.

BUT THE PRESIDENT WASN'T

KIDDING WHEN HE OUTLINED

SOME OF WHAT HE WANTS TO DO

IN A SECOND TERM.

President Obama:

NOTHING I'M PROPOSING

TONIGHT SHOULD INCREASE OUR

DEFICIT BY A SINGLE DIME.

IT IS NOT A BIGGER

GOVERNMENT WE NEED, BUT A

SMARTER GOVERNMENT THAT SETS

PRIORITIES AND INVESTS IN

BROAD-BASED GROWTH.

[APPLAUSE]

President Obama: THAT'S

WHAT WE SHOULD BE LOOKING

FOR.

David: WE'RE HERE AT

"THE BRODY FILE" TRY TO DO

THINGS A BIT DIFFERENTLY.

SO WHILE EVERYONE ELSE IS

PLAYING CLIPS LIKE YOU JUST

SAW FROM HIS SPEECH, DID YOU

KNOW WE HAVE HOOKED UP OUR

OWN BRODY FILE THOUGHT

MONITOR TO THE PRESIDENT

DURING HIS SPEECH.

IT IS TRUE.

WE WERE ABLE TO CAPTURE HIS

THOUGHTS WHILE HE WAS GIVING

THE SPEECH.

AND WE TURNED ALL OF THIS

INTO A SEGMENT THAT WE LIKE

TO CALL BRODY FILE POP UP

VIDEO.

HAVE A LOOK.

President Obama: MOST

OF US AGREE THAT A PLAN TO

REDUCE THE DEFICIT MUST BE

PART OF OUR AGENDA.

LET'S BE CLEAR, DEFICIT

REDUCTION ALONE IS NOT AN

ECONOMIC PLAN.

WE CAN SAY WITH CONFIDENCE

THAT AMERICA WILL COMPLETE

ITS MISSION IN AFGHANISTAN

AND ACHIEVE OUR OBJECTIVE OF

DEFEATING THE CORE OF

AL-QAEDA.

[APPLAUSE]

President Obama: OUR

GOVERNMENT SHOULDN'T MAKE

PROMISES WE CANNOT KEEP.

BUT WE MUST KEEP THE

PROMISES WE'VE ALREADY

MADE.

[APPLAUSE]

President Obama: THE

GOOD NEWS IS OUR HOUSING

MARKETS IS FINALLY HEALING

FROM THE COLLAPSE OF 2007.

HOME PRICES ARE RISING AT

THE FASTEST PACE IN SIX

YEARS.

David: WE'RE ACTUALLY

MONITORING PEOPLE'S THOUGHTS

HERE AT "THE BRODY FILE."

WE'RE VERY TECH SAVVY.

AND HOW ABOUT THE GUY WHO

GAVE THE G.O.P. REBUTTAL TO

THE PRESIDENT.

SENATOR MARCO RUBIO WAS

CHOSEN TO GIVE THE BIG

ADDRESS.

HE DID IT IN ENGLISH AND

SPANISH JUST FOR KICKS.

RUBIO IS CONSIDERED ONE OF

THE LEADING CONTENDERS FOR

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

HE IS PRETTY HIP AND COOM.

HE LIKES RAP MUSIC, BELIEVE

IT OR NOT.

AND, OF COURSE, HE IS ON THE

COVER OF "TIME MAGAZINE"

THIS WEEK.

HE IS HAILED AS THE

REPUBLICAN SAVIOR.

RUBIO LATER TWEETED

THAT, QUOTE,"THERE IS ONLY

ONE SAVIOR, AND IT IS NOT

ME.

HASH TAG, JESUS."

SOME EVANGELICAL POINTS

THERE FOR SURE.

"THE BRODY FILE" WENT IN

SEARCH OF THE SO-CALLED

REPUBLICAN SAVIOR.

WE CALL IT POLITICAL

STALKING MODE WHERE WE

SEARCH OUT BIG TIME NEWS

MAKERS, AND BINGO, WE FOUND

HIM, THE MAN OF THE HOUR FOR

REPUBLICANS.

WHAT IS ONE WAY YOU BELIEVE

YOUR ADDRESS CONTRASTED THE

PRESIDENT'S?

I BELIEVE THE FREE

ENTERPRISE SYSTEM IS THE

SOURCE OF OUR MIDDLE CLASS

PROSPERITY, AND THE

PRESIDENT THINGS THE SOURCE

IS THE GOVERNMENT.

IT IS A PRETTY FAR DEPARTURE

FROM WHERE MOST PRESIDENTS

HAVE BEEN.

David: I AM CURIOUS

ABOUT DEFICIT REDUCTION.

WHEN THE PRESIDENT TALKED

ABOUT DEFICIT REDUCTION, A

LOT OF FOLKS PROBABLY

LAUGHED.

DO YOU BELIEVE HE IS BEING

DECEITFUL OR REAL HONEST

WHEN IT COMES TO WANTING TO

REDUCE THE DEFICIT --

HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND

WHAT THE DANGER IN THE

DEFICIT IS.

WE HAVE A NATIONAL DEBT THAT

IS $16.5 TRILLION.

THAT FIGURE NEEDS TO BE

BROUGHT DOWN OR STABILIZED.

AND THE ONLY SOLUTION TO

THAT PROBLEM, THE ONLY

SOLUTION, THERE IS NO OTHER

SOLUTION, IS THE COMBINATION

OF RAPID ECONOMIC GROWTH AND

STABILIZING OUR SPENDING IN

FUTURE YEARS.

YOU HAVE TO DO BOTH.

THERE IS NO TAX INCREASE

THAT WILL HELP US DO THAT.

David: SO "TIME

MAGAZINE," THE REPUBLICAN

NEWSIUKRON 4CURIOUS HOW

YOUR CHRISTIAN FAITH EFFECTS

YOUR JOB.

I THINK WE HAVE THIS

NOTION THAT SOMEHOW WORSHIP

IS ONLY CONFINED TO THE

CHURCH.

YOU CAN WORSHIP OUTSIDE THE

CHURCH, YOU CAN WORSHIP IN

YOUR WORKPLACE.

YOU CAN WORSHIP IN HOW YOU

DO YOUR JOB, ESPECIALLY WHEN

THE PURPOSE IS TO PLEASE AND

HONOR GOD.

I HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO

SERVE MY FELLOW MAN, AND IN

DOING THAT JOB WELL, I SERVE

GOD AND GLORIFY HIM.

WHATEVER YOUR JOB IS -- YOU

DON'T HAVE TO BE A

SENATOR -- IF YOU DO IT

WELL, THAT IS A FORM OF

WORSHIPPINGING.

WORSHIPPING.

MY PRINCIPLES GUIDE ME IN

WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG AND

WHAT IS GOOD AND BAD.

I DON'T ALWAYS SUCCEED, BUT

I TRY TO VIEW MY JOB AS A

FORM OF WORSHIP IN HOW I

DEDICATE IT TO GOD.

David: THE HEADLINES

HAVE BEEN, IS THE TEA PARTY

DEAD?

A LOT OF LIBERALS WILL SAY,

OF COURSE IT IS.

BUT THERE HAS BEEN SOME

CONSTERNATION IN HOW TO MOVE

FORWARD.

WHAT WOULD BE SOME ADVICE

FROM YOU AS TO WHAT THEY CAN

DO --

THE PRINCIPLES BEHIND THE

TEA PARTY OF TIMELESS.

WHAT IS THE TEA PARTY

ABOUT?

IT IS ABOUT A GOVERNMENT

THAT DOESN'T SPEND MORE

MONEY THAN IT TAKES IN.

IT IS ABOUT AMERICA BEING

THE STRONGEST COUNTRY IN THE

WORLD.

THAT'S A COMMON SENSE IDEA.

THE IDEA THAT WE SHOULD

FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION,

THAT IT IS WISE TO LIMIT THE

SIZE AND SCOPE OF OUR

GOVERNMENT.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF

AMERICANS WOULD AGREE WITH

THAT.

THE CHALLENGE IS TO TAKE

THOSE PRINCIPLES AND APPLY

THEM TO THE CHALLENGES OF

THE 21st CENTURY.

AND, BY THE WAY, THE TEA

PARTY IS NOT AN

ORGANIZATION.

IT IS A COLLECTION OF PEOPLE

FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE THAT

ON SOME ISSUES MIGHT

DISAGREE ON SOME THINGS.

THERE IS A MORE LIBERTARIAN

MOVE, AND THERE IS ROOM FOR

THAT, AND THERE IS A MORE

TRADITIONAL VIEW OF

GOVERNMENT, AND THAT HAS

ROOM IN OUR MOVEMENT.

BUT ULTIMATELY WE'RE ALL

WORKING FOR THE SAME THING:

A CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED

GOVERNMENT, THAT CREATES

FREE EN ENTERPRISE TO

CREATE PROSPERITY.

IT IS NOT ALL GOING TO BE AN

EASY RIDE.

David: THAT IS MARCO

RUBIO HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

HE COULD BE THE NEXT

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

BUT RIGHT NOW THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY IS TRYING TO FIND

ITSELF.

FOR THE G.O.P., IT IS NOT

THE STATE OF THE UNION, IT

IS MORE LIKE THE STATE OF

THE G.O.P. DISUNITY.

LOOK, FOLKS, THE TEA PARTY

AND CONSTITUTIONAL

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS ARE NOT

HAPPY WITH KARL ROVE'S GROUP

CALLED AMERICAN'S

CROSS-ROADS.

THEY'RE LOOKING TO WEED OUT

BAD, ULTRA CONSERVATIVE

CANDIDATES.

THEY THINK THESE GUYS WANT

TO WATER DOWN CONSERVATISM.

WELL, EARLIER THIS WEEK, WE

SPOKE TO THE PRESIDENT OF

THE CONSERVATIVE VICTORY

PROJECT, STEVEN LAW SAT DOWN

WITH US FOR A FRANK

DISCUSSION.

OUR HOPE IS, AGAIN, THAT

IF WE GET INVOLVED IN A

SITUATION WHERE WE SEE THE

POTENTIAL FOR A COMPETITIVE

PRIMARY, WE WOULD LIKE TO DO

WHAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE SO

SUCCESSFUL AT DOING.

THEY ARE TYPICALLY ABLE TO

CLEAR PRIMARIES FOR THEIR

FRONT-RUNNER, TYPICALLY THE

MOST LIBERAL CANDIDATE THEY

CAN GET ELECTED, AND THAT'S

WHY THEY HAVE FEND TENDED TO

BE MORE SUCCESSFUL,

ESPECIALLY IN THE STATE-WIDE

RACES.

OUR HOPE IS WE CAN FIND THAT

MOST CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE

THAT CAN GET ELECTED.

IF THERE IS CONSENSUS, THAT

WOULD BE GREAT.

GET OUR BEST FOOT FORWARD

GOING INTO THE GENERAL

ELECTION AND BE

COMPETITIVE.

THERE ARE GOING TO BE TIMES

WHEN HONEST MINDS WILL

DISAGREE, AND WE'LL BE

HONEST ABOUT IT AND LET THE

BEST MAN OR WOMAN WIN.

I BELIEVE THAT COMPETITION

WE'LL HAVE IN THOSE

PRIMARIES WILL END UP

YIELDING A MORE SEASON THE,

CAPABLE NOMINEE ONCE THAT

PRIMARY IS OVER.

David: THAT IS STEVEN

LAW HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

THIS CURFULFEL AMONG

CONSERVATIVES LEADS US TO

THIS WEEK'S BRODY FILE

COMMENTARY.

"THE BRODY FILE" OBVIOUSLY

WOULDN'T BE CHOOSING FIGHTS

BETWEEN THE AMERICAN

CROSSROADS AND THE TEA PARTY

BASE.

BUT LET ME HIGHLIGHT ONE

AREA, MAYBE INSTEAD OF

FIGHTING BACK, TEA PARTY

GROUPS ACROSS THE COUNTRY

MAY WANT TO SPEND MORE

ENERGY FINDING TOP-NOTCH

CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES IN

THEIR DISTRICTS.

YEAH, I UNDERSTAND THAT WORK

IS ALREADY TAKING PLACE, BUT

THE TRUTH IS A LOT MORE WORK

NEEDS TO BE DONE.

SURELY, THERE ARE OTHER

POTENTIAL SENATE CANDIDATES

THAT WILL PLEASE BOTH THE

TEA PARTY AND AMERICAN

CROSSROADS.

SURELY THERE ARE MORE LIKE

TED CRUZ OUT THERE.

LOOK, THE TRUTH IS THIS: THE

MAIN CHALLENGE FOR THE TEA

PARTY MOVEMENT ISN'T

AMERICAN CROSSROADS.

IF ANYTHING, AMERICAN

CROSSROADS MIGHT BE DOING

THE MOVEMENT A FAVOR BY

PUSHING THEM TO REALLY GET

DOWN RIGHT BUSY AND SERIOUS

ABOUT FINDING

CONSTITUTIONALLY

CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL

CANDIDATES WHO ARE READY FOR

PRIME TIME.

THAT'S THE MAIN TASK HERE.

MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, THIS

INTERNAL SQUABBLING WILL

LEAD TO A BETTER

CONSERVATIVE FARM TEAM.

IF SO, THEN THE BICKERING

WILL HAVE SERVED A NOBLE

PURPOSE.

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME

BACK, JENNIFER WISHON IS

TALKING CATHOLICISM AND THE

POPE.

WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH?

WE'RE BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

ALL RIGHT, TIME NOW FOR A

LITTLE PAPEL POPERRI.

WE ALL KNOW THE POPE IS

STEPPING DOWN, RESIGNING,

WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL

IT.

HE WILL BE TAKING HIS NEW

JOB AS PRESIDENT OF THE

HERITAGE FOUNDATION -- JUST

KIDDING.

A LITTLE PAPEL HUMOR FOR

YOU.

WHAT IS GOING ON?

WHY IS THE POPE STEPPING

DOWN.

WHY IS HE SAYING SIGH

SAYONARA?

WELL, JENNY AND THE "B"

BLOCK IS HERE TO EXPLAIN IT

ALL AND GET SOME INSIGHT

FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.

SHE IS STANDING BY AT THE

VATICAN -- SHE IS NOT AT THE

VATICAN.

JENNY?

Reporter: THANKS,

DAVID.

POPE BENEDICT XVI'S DECISION

TO STEP DOWN WAS SURPRISING,

TO SAY THE LEAST.

HERE TO TELL US A LITTLE

MORE ABOUT IT IS MATT SMITH,

PRESIDENT OF THE CATHOLIC

ADVOCATE.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

Reporter: THE POPE IS

85 YEARS OLD, AND HE SAYS HE

IS STEPPING DOWN FOR HEALTH

REASONS.

HE IS NOT IN TIP TOP SHAPE

TO MANAGE THE CHURCH.

THIS HASN'T HAPPENED IN 600

YEARS.

WHAT DOES THIS TELL US ABOUT

POPE BENEDICT XVI.

IT SAYS TO ME HERE IS A

MAN WITH SO MUCH LOVE IN HIS

HEART FOR THE FAITHFUL, HE

WANTED TO GIVE THEM HIS

ALL.

IN THESE DAYS WHERE PEOPLE

ARE LIVING LONGER, JUST FELT

HE COULDN'T DO THAT FOR THE

FAITHFUL.

SO HE DID ONE OF THE MOST

SELFLESS THINGS THAT ANY

LEADER CAN DO IN ANY TIME

AND ANY PLACE, AND THAT WAS

TO TAKE A STEP BACK FOR

WHAT'S IN THE BEST INTEREST

OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.

Reporter: IT IS

INTERESTING, HOURS AFTER

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT, LIGHTNING

ACTUALLY STRUCK ST. PETER'S

BASILICA.

WHAT HAS THE REACTION BEEN

IN THE U.S.

I THINK THAT WAS GOD

SAYING, I DON'T ACCEPT YOUR

RETIREMENT.

BUT, YOU KNOW, THE HOLY

FATHER, POPE BENEDICT XVI,

IS WELL-LOVED HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

HE HAS BEEN AN ARTICULATE

DEFENDER OF OUR FAITH.

HE HAS REGULARLY SPOKEN OUT

FOR THE RIGHTS OF THE NEEDY,

ESPECIALLY THE UNBORN, OUR

MOST NEEDY AMONG US.

STOOD UP FOR TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE.

BUT ONE OF THE THINGS I

THINK HE'LL ALSO BE KNOWN

FOR IS THE NEW INITIATIVE HE

LAUNCHED AND THA

T

HE

ALSO

SPOKE ABOUT A LOT, AND THAT

IS THIS NEW EV

EVANGELICALIZATION.

BECAUSE HE IS DEEPLY

CONCERNED ABOUT THE

SECULARIZATION OF OUR WORLD,

AND VERY CONCERNED ABOUT HOW

FAITH PLAYS IN OUR DAILY

LIFE.

I THINK AMERICAN CATHOLICS

RESPECTED THAT AND

APPRECIATED THAT IN POPE

BENEDICT XVI.

Reporter: ABSOLUTELY.

THE POPE IS EXPECTED TO MAKE

HIS LAST PUBLIC APPEARANCE

THE END OF THIS MONTH, AND

THEN THE MEETING OF THE

CARDINALS AND THE CONCLAVE

WILL MEET NEXT MONTH TO

DECIDE ON A NEW POPE.

WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES

FACING THE NEXT LEADER OF

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?

RHYM PRIMARILY IS TO

CONTINUE DEFENDING OUR

CHURCH FROM THESE SECULAR

ASSAULTS, LIKE I JUST

MENTIONED.

THERE ARE ATTACKS ON OUR

RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES, NOT

ONLY HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES BUT IN OTHER

COUNTRIES.

THERE ARE ATTACKS ON

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

THERE IS THE CONTINUED LACK

OF RESPECT FOR LIFE FROM

CONCEPTION TO NATURAL DEATH

THAT WE'RE SEEING, NOT ONLY

HERE IN THE UNITED STATES,

BUT ALSO IN EUROPE AND OTHER

PLACES.

SO THE NEXT PONTIFF IS GOING

TO HAVE TO CONTINUE BEING AN

ARTICULATE VOICE FOR THOSE

CONCERNS.

Reporter: MATT SMITH,

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

INSIGHTS.

THANK YOU.

Reporter: AND DAVID,

BACK TO YOU.

CATHOLICS SAYING GOOD-BYE TO

A BELOVED LEADER AND LOOKING

FORWARD TO THE NEXT ONE.

David: THANK YOU,

JENNY.

NEXT TIME WE'LL SEND YOU TO

THE VATICAN.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR "THE BRODY

FILE" BUDGET MONEY.

AND A SMACKDOWN,

ADMINISTERED SURGICALLY BY

BEN CARSON AT THE NATIONAL

PRAYER SERVICE.

THIS VIDEO HAS GONE VIRAL,

AND WE'RE GOING TO SHOW IT

TO YOU IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

YOU KNOW OUR SAYING, WE'RE A

COMBINATION OF MEET THE

PRESS, COMEDY CENTRAL, AND A

SPRINKLING OF JESUS.

WITH THAT SAID, IT IS TIME

FOR OUR EVANGELICAL APP

SEGMENT.

WE BEGIN WITH SEGMENT WITH

SOME NEWS THAT "THE BRODY

FILE" IS BREAKING

EXCLUSIVELY RIGHT NOW.

WE HAVE LEARNED THAT THE

AMERICAN RENEWAL PROJECT

WILL BE ORGANIZING PASTORS

ACROSS THIS COUNTRY IN 12

KEY STATES DURING THE 2014

CYCLE.

THE GROUP HAS BEEN EXTREMELY

ACTIVE UNITING PASTORS ON

ISSUES SO THEY SPEAK OUT

MORE FROM THE PULPIT.

THE IDEA THAT THE

MOBILIZATION OF PASTORS

AROUND ISSUES, NOT

CANDIDATES, BUT ISSUES, WILL

BE THE GOAL.

THE GOAL IS TO GET TENS OF

MILLIONS OF EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIANS OFF THE SIDELINES

WHO HAVEN'T ACTUALLY VOTED

YET.

THE STATES TARGETED ARE

COLORADO, IOWA, LOUISIANA,

MONTANA, SOUTH CAROLINA,

ALASKA, ARKANSAS, NORTH

CAROLINA, NEVADA, SOUTH

DAKOTA, VIRGINIA, AND WEST

VIRGINIA.

BY THE WAY, THE AMERICAN

RENEWAL PROJECT WAS CRUCIAL

TO THE VICTORY OF PROP 8 OUT

IN CALIFORNIA.

THAT'S THE TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE AMENDMENT.

AND THEY WERE HAVE ACTIVE IN

REMOVING THOSE THREE SUPREME

COURT JUDGES IN IOWA WHO

RULED TO OVERTURN THE

DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT.

YOU KNOW, EVANGELICALS ARE

ALSO STARTING TO MOBILIZE

AROUND THE ISSUE OF

IMMIGRATION.

MANY CONSERVATIVE

EVANGELICAL LEADERS ARE

VOICING SUPPORT FOR SOME

SORT OF COMPREHENSIVE

IMMIGRATION DEAL.

THERE IS RICHARD LAND WITH

THE SOUTHERN BAPTISTS.

SAMMY RODRIGUEZ WITH THE

NATIONAL HISPANIC LEADERSHIP

CONFERENCE.

THE FAITH AND FREEDOM

COALITION IS ALSO EXPRESSING

SUPPORT FOR SOME SORT OF

DEAL.

THAT GROUP IS LED BY C.E.O.

RALPH REID, AND THEY SAY THE

FOLLOWING: "WE APPLAUD

SENATOR MARCO RUBIO AND

OTHERS FOR STEPPING FORWARD

AND PROVIDING CRITICAL

LEADERSHIP TO MODERNIZE AND

REFORM IMMIGRATION LAW BASED

ON CONSERVATIVE PROFAMILY

PRINCIPLES.

WE BELIEVE THE FAITH

COMMUNITY HAS MUCH TO

CONTRIBUTE THIS.

THE IMMIGRATION ISSUE IS NOT

ONLY A NATIONAL SECURITY

ISSUE, IT IS A MORAL ISSUE

THAT IS BEST ADVANCED BY

APPLYING PRINCIPLES FROM THE

JUDAEO CHRISTIAN

PRINCIPLES."

THE PRINCIPLES ARE: FIRST OF

ALL, IMMIGRATION SHOULD

STRENGTHEN THE FAMILY.

NUMBER TWO, RESPECT FOR THE

RULE OF LAW.

THREE, REFORM THE VISA

SYSTEM TO MEET THE NEEDS OF

THE U.S. ECONOMY.

AND FOUR, SECURE THE

BORDER.

THE SHIFT ON IMMIGRATION

AMONG EVANGELICALS COINCIDES

IN A SHIFT IN THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY'S ATTITUDE TOWARDS

IMMIGRATION REFORM AS WELL.

LET'S FACE IT, THE G.O.P.

KNOWS THEY NEED TO APPEAL TO

THE HISPANIC VOTERS OR THEY

ARE IN BIG TROUBLE IN FUTURE

ELECTIONS.

TO THAT END, GET A LOAD OF

THESE NUMBERS: HISPANICS

WILL OUTNUMBER WHITES IN

CALIFORNIA, STARTING NEXT

YEAR IN 2014.

RIGHT NOW WHITES COMPROMISE

40% OF THE POPULATION,

HISPANICS ARE AT ABOUT 48%.

BY 2020, HISPANICS WILL MAKE

UP 40.8% OF THE POPULATION,

AND WHITES WILL BE AT ABOUT

36.6%.

CLEARLY THE SAND IS SHIFTING

ON IMMIGRATION.

SPEAKING OF SHIFTING SAND,

IS IT ALSO STARTING TO MOVE

ON THE ISSUE OF GAYS IN THE

BOY SCOUTS?

HOMOSEXUAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS

SURE HOPE SO.

THEY WANT THE SCOUTS TO LIFT

THEIR BAN ON GAY SCOUT

LEADERS.

THE BOY SCOUTS PUT OFF OF

THE RULING EARLIER THIS

MONTH AND ARE GOING TO NOW

RULE ON IT IN MAY.

AND IT HAS LED TO A GRUELING

FIGHT ON BOTH SIDES.

UNTIL THEY ADOPT A POLICY

OF NON-DISCRIMINATION ACROSS

THE BOARD, I STILL HAVE WORK

TO DO.

WHAT IS GREAT ABOUT

AMERICA IS PEOPLE CAN JOIN

THE GROUPS THEY BELIEVE

WITH, AND THEY HAVE THAT

FREEDOM TO FORM THEIR OWN

GROUP, IF THERE IS NOT A

GROUP THAT BELIEVES LIKE

THEY DO.

David: LOOK, THE BOY

SCOUT CONTROVERSY IS REALLY

A FIGHT OVER THE DIRECTION

OF OUR CULTURE.

THE REAL QUESTION IS THIS:

WILL CHRISTIANS HAVE AS MUCH

PASSION TO FIGHT AS

HOMOSEXUAL ACTIVISTS.

AND WE ALL KNOW HOW

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S HEALTH

CARE LAW HAS BEEN AT THE

CENTER OF A BIG FIGHT IN

THIS COUNTRY.

ENTER DR. BEN CARSON, WHO IS

DIRECTOR OF PEDIATRIC

NEUROSURGERY AT JOHN

HOPKINS, AND HE WAS GIVEN

THE KEY NOTE SPEECH.

HE THEN DECIDED TO GIVE HIS

OWN PRESCRIPTION FOR HEALTH

CARE.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

HERE IS MY SOLUTION: WHEN

THE PERSON IS BORN, GIVE

THEM A BIRTH CERTIFICATE, AN

ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORD,

AND A HEALTH SAVINGS

ACCOUNT, TO WHICH MONEY CAN

BE CONTRIBUTED PRE-TAXED

FROM THE TIME YOU'RE BORN TO

THE TIME YOU DIE.

WHEN YOU DIE, YOU CAN PASS

IT ON TO YOUR FAMILY

MEMBERS, SO WHEN YOU'RE 85

YEARS OLD AND YOU'VE GOT SIX

DISEASES, YOU'RE HAPPY TO

PASS IT ON.

THAT'S NUMBER ONE.

AND, ALSO, FOR THE PEOPLE

WHO ARE INDIGENT, WHO DON'T

HAVE ANY MONEY, WE CAN MAKE

CONTRIBUTIONS TO THEIR

H.S.A. EACH MONTH BECAUSE WE

ALREADY HAVE THIS HUGE POT

OF MONEY, INSTEAD OF SENDING

IT TO SOME BUREAUCRACY,

LET'S PUT IT IN THEIR

H.S.A..

NOW THEY HAVE SOME CONTROL

OVER THEIR OWN HEALTH CARE.

David: WE'RE BACK IN A

MOMENT WITH AN OY-VEY MOMENT

THAT MAY HAVE YOU CLOSING

YOUR EYES, LIKE THIS,

LITERALLY.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK BACK TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE ALL KNOW POLITICIANS DO

DUMB THINGS.

THEY PROVE IT EVERY SINGLE

DAY.

HOWEVER, WE HAVE FOUND

SOMEONE THAT HAS DONE

SOMETHING EVEN MORE STUPID

THAN A POLITICIAN.

AND HE'S THIS WEEK'S OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

*

David: MEET SIMBODY, A

SIDE-SHOW PERFORMER IN LAS

VEGAS.

THIS GUY DECIDED TO SET A

WORLD RECORD.

HERE IS THE OY-VEY PART: THE

WORLD RECORD IS FOR THE

NUMBER OF WATERMELONS

CHOPPED ON A STOMACH.

THE RECORD STANDS AT 27, BY

THE WAY.

HERE IS A TAPE.

GO!

[APPLAUSE AND CHEERS]

[YELLING]

[CHEERING]

David: FOLKS, THAT'S

INSANE.

THAT IS DUMBER THAN WATCHING

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS

FIGHT ON CAPITOL HILL.

SIMBODY, CONGRATULATIONS, MY

FRIEND.

YOU ARE THIS WEEK'S OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

HIS ATTEMPT WILL BE SHOWN ON

THIS WEEK'S GUINNESS WORLD

RECORDS GONE WILD SHOW, IF

YOU WANTED TO WATCH.

THAT DOES IT FOR THIS WEEK.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, EVERYBODY,

GOD BLESS YOU AND HAVE A

GREAT WEEK.
