David: THIS WEEK ON

"THE BRODY FILE," CHRISTMAS

HAS COME EARLY FOR THE

G.O.P.

OBAMACARE IS THE PRESENT

UNDER THE TREE.

WE GO ONE-ON-ONE WITH

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL

COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN BRYCE.

ARE YOU GOING TO SEND THEM A

THANK YOU CARD OVER

OBAMACARE?

IT IS LIKE THE CHRISTMAS

VACATION MOVIE, THE JELLY OF

THE MONTH, WHEN COUSIN EDDIE

SAYS, CLARK, IT IS THE JELLY

OF THE MONTH CLUB, THE GIFT

THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

YEAR-ROUND.

AND OUR CHARLES GOES

ONE-ON-ONE WITH SOMEONE FROM

FOX NEWS.

PEOPLE ASK ME, HOW DO YOU

GO FROM WALTER PO MON

MONDALE TO FOX NEWS.

THE ANSWER IS I WAS YOUNG

ONCE.

David: PLUS A PRO-LIFE

BATTLE IN ALBUQUERQUE, NEW

MEXICO.

THE STAKES ARE HIGH.

"THE BRODY FILE," WE ARE

PACKING HEAT FROM D.C., IS

THAT LEGAL?

ANYWAY, WE'RE ON ACROSS

AMERICA.

AND WELCOME, EVERYBODY, TO

"THE BRODY FILE."

WE'RE HAPPY YOU'RE WITH US,

BUT YOU KNOW WHO IS REALLY

HAPPY?

THAT'S RIGHT, STEWART, THE

SALSA-DANCING DOG, WHO IS

GOING TO BUST A MOVE RIGHT

NOW TO GET US IN A FESTIVE

MOVE.

*

[SALSA MUSIC]

David: ALL RIGHT, I

WANT YOU TO CLOSE YOUR

EYES.

I WANT YOU TO PICTURE

STEWART, THAT DOG, AS A

REPUBLICAN.

CAN YOU SEE STEWART, THE

REPUBLICAN, DANCING.

THAT'S RIGHT, REPUBLICANS

DANCING UP A STORM

POLITICALLY BECAUSE

OBAMACARE KEEPS ON TURNING

INTO MORE OF A DISASTER.

AND SO WE NOW BRING YOU THE

LATEST EPISODE FROM THE SOAP

OPERA, "AS OBAMACARE

TURNS."

"AS OBAMACARE TURNS,"

BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE

TAXPAYER.

David: LET'S SEE.

THE WEBSITE IS A DISASTER.

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE

GETTING CANCELLATION

NOTICES.

THE PRESIDENT IS BEING

CALLED A LIAR, EVEN BY

LIBERALS.

AND HIS APPROVAL RATING IS

DOWN TO AN ALL-TIME LOW OF

42%.

ALL OF THIS MEANS A HUGE

OPPORTUNITY FOR REPUBLICANS

TO DO VERY WELL IN THE

UPCOMING 2014 MID-TERM

ELECTIONS.

WHO BETTER TO TALK ABOUT

THIS THAN REPUBLICAN

NATIONAL COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN

BRYCE PREVUS.

WE SAT DOWN WITH HIM TO

DISCUSS THE STATE OF

OBAMACARE AND HOW THE G.O.P.

CAN CASH IN POLITICALLY.

CHAIRMAN, LET ME ASK YOU, IS

THIS AN EARLY CHRISTMAS

PRESENT?

UNFORTUNATELY, THERE ARE

TWO ANSWERS TO THAT.

ONE, POLITICALLY, THE ANSWER

ISIE.

IS YES.

POLITICALLY, LET OBAMACARE

GO THROUGH AND WE'LL TATTOO

IT TO THEIR HEADS AND BEAT

THEM IN 2014.

THE PROBLEM IS IT IS A

PAINFUL THING FOR A LOT OF

PEOPLE.

POLITICS ASIDE, THIS THING

IS A MON TRUS CENTURY.

MONSTROSITY.

WE TRIED EVERYTHING, THE

GOVERNMENT WAS SHUT DOWN,

AND WE DID EVERYTHING WE

COULD TO POSSIBLY STOP IT.

BUT I DON'T THINK IT WILL

GET BETTER, NO MATTER WHAT

FIXES THE PRESIDENT THINKS

HE'LL PUSH THROUGH.

David: DO YOU GET A

CHANCE THAT THE PRESIDENT IS

SETTING UP THE INSURANCE

COMPANIES AS THE BAD GUYS?

HE'S TRYING TO SHIFT THE

CONVERSATION AT THE KITCHEN

TABLE.

WHAT HE IS TRYING TO DO IS

PUT THE BLAME ON INSURANCE

COMPANIES, SO WHEN FAMILIES

ARE SITTING AROUND AND

HAVING THIS DIFFICULT

CONVERSATION, THEY CAN MAYBE

BLAME SOMEONE ELSE, OTHER

THAN THE PRESIDENT.

THE PROBLEM IS WE KNOW THAT

FIX ISN'T A FIX AT ALL.

IT IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE

ANYTHING.

AND THE BIGGER PROBLEM NOW,

OF COURSE, IS THAT YOUNG,

HEALTHY PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING

TO BE SIGNING UP FOR

OBAMACARE.

WHICH IN THE A ACUARIAL,

WILL BE THE BIG PROBLEM.

David: IT DOESN'T

NECESSARILY TRANSLATE TO

2016.

THAT'S A GOOD POINT.

WE HAVE TWO DIFFERENT

REPUBLICAN PARTIES.

WE HAVE A MID-TERM

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

WE'VE BEEN DOING WELL IN

MID-TERMS.

IT IIT IS VERY

MESSAGE-DRIVEN, AND OUR

MESSAGE IS YOU DON'T SPEND

MORE THAN YOU TAKE IN.

IT IS A STRONG MESSAGE.

THE PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE,

WE'VE BEEN HAVING TROUBLE

FOR 24 YEARS.

WINNING A DECISIVE RACE.

I THINK OBAMACARE WILL BE A

BIG PROBLEM FOR DEMOCRATS IN

2014.

I LIKE WHERE WE'RE SITTING

IN THE SENATE AND HOLDING

THE HOUSE.

GOVERNORS LOOK STRONG.

BUT WHAT WE NEED TO DO AS A

NATIONAL PARTY IS, NUMBER

ONE, HAVE A GROUND GAME THAT

IS PERMANENT.

FIX OUR DATA AND DIGITAL

ISSUES, WHICH IS ABOUT A

$40 MILLION UPGRADE.

AND THEN ALSO PRESENT THE

VISION IS NOT JUST KNOW

ABOUT OBAMACARE, BUT THE

VISION MOVING FORWARD TO GET

OUR COUNTRY BACK ON TRACK.

David: WE HAVE HEARD A

LOT OF TALK THAT THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY IS AGAINST

THIS AND AGAINST THAT.

WHAT DOES THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY HAVE TO DO TO GET OUT

THEIR MESSAGE ABOUT

REPUBLICAN PROPOSALS AS IT

RELATES TO HEALTH CARE?

FOR ONE THING, WE HAVE

OUR BREAD AND BUTTER

MESSAGE, ON THE DEBT AND THE

DEFICIT AND THE BUDGET, AND

I THINK PAUL RYAN HAS DONE A

GREAT JOB OF BEING A GO-TO

PERSON ON THAT ISSUE, AND

ALL OF OUR MEMBERS ARE ON

THE SAME PAGE ON GETTING OUR

DEBTS AND DEFICITS IN

CONTROL.

BUT THE SECOND THING IS WE

HAVE A MESSAGE ON HEALTH

CARE.

EVERYONE HAS TO REPEAT THE

SAME THING.

WE NEVER TRIED OPEN

PRICING.

WE'VE NEVER ACTUALLY -- THE

CONGRESS HAS NEVER TAKEN A

SHOT AT OPEN PRICING.

WHAT IF IT LOOKED LIKE IF

HOSPITALS LISTED OUT THE

PRICES OF EVERYTHING THEY

CHARGED FOR, AND PEOPLE HAVE

MORE CONTROL OVER MAKING

THOSE DECISIONS.

WE NEVER TRIED GETTING JUNK

LAWSUITS UNDER CONTROL IN

THIS COUNTRY.

WHAT WOULD THAT DO TO THE

PRICE OF HEALTH CARE?

WOULD IT LOWER THE PRICE OF

HEALTH CARE?

WE THINK THAT IT WILL.

WE NEVER TRIED ALLOWING

PEOPLE TO POOL THEIR

RESOURCES TOGETHER, GET

SMALL INDIVIDUALS TOGETHER,

AND INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE

SELF-EMPLOYED, AND SMALL

BUSINESSES, AND LET THEM GET

HEALTH CARE AT A LOWER

PRICE.

WE NEVER TRIED THREE BASIC

THINGS WE BELIEVE WILL LOWER

THE COST OF HEALTH CARE.

THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO BE

TALKING ABOUT OUT ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL.

AND I THINK WE NEED TO TALK

ABOUT IT IN INTERVIEWS LIKE

THIS.

David: HAVE YOU GONE

TO HALLMARK TO SEND

PRESIDENT OBAMA A THANK YOU

CARD.

IT IS LIKE IN "CHRISTMAS

VACATION," WHEN THE COUSIN,

CLARK, IT IS THE JELLY OF

THE YEAR, THE GIFT THAT

KEEPS ON GIVING ALL YEAR

AROUND.

BUT IT HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE

FOR THE DEMOCRATS.

David: IT IS NOT ONLY

THE REPUBLICANS BASHING THE

PRESIDENT, IT IS LIBERALS,

TOO.

I WANT YOU TO WATCH WHAT

BILL MAR MARR HAD TO SAY.

DEBBIE SCHULTZ IS GOING TO

DEFEND THE PRESIDENT, BUT

THEN WATCH BILL.

IT WAS NOT A LIE.

LET ME KNOCK THAT DOWN RIGHT

AWAY.

WHEN THE PRESIDENT AND

MYSELF AND EVERY OTHER

DEMOCRAT THAT TALKED ABOUT

IF YOU LIKED YOUR HEALTH

CARE, YOU CAN KEEP IT, THAT

WAS REFERRING TO THE

OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF

AMERICANS WHO HAD HEALTH

CARE.

85% OF AMERICANS HAD HEALTH

CARE COVERAGE TO BEGIN

WITH.

AND IN FACT, WHAT THE

REALITY OF OBAMACARE IS, IS

NOT ONLY ARE THEY ABLE TO

KEEP THROUGH HEALTH CARE, IT

IS VERY LIKELY TO COST --

LET'S BE HONEST.

OBAMACARE SAYS BASICALLY IF

YOU HAVE A REALLY CRAPPIE

PLAN, YOU CAN KEEP IT.

AND I WOULD SAY, WHAT DO YOU

WANT A CRAPPY PLAN, BUT THEY

WANT IT.

AND BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE,

THEY'RE NOT ABLE TO KEEP

IT.

THAT IS A LIE.

David: WHEN YOU START

LOSING LIKE BILL MARR, AND

HOW ABOUT RUTH MARCUS AT THE

"WASHINGTON POST." "THE

PROMISE AND THE APOLOGY ARE

THE BOOK ENDS OF EFFECTIVE

POLITICS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

TRAGICALLY, AND PERHAPS IR

IRREPARABLY FLUBBED BOTH."

AND SHE CONTINUES TO TALK

ABOUT THE PRESIDENT AND SHE

SAYS THIS, QUOTE,"THAT THE

ADMINISTRATION KNEW THIS AND

FAILED TO DEMONSTRATE THE

POLITICAL OUTCRY IS OF THE

HIGHEST ORDER."

AND SHE GOES ON TO

SAY, QUOTE,"OBAMA'S ACTUAL

APOLOGY WAS FOR THE WRONG

THING.

IT WAS THE MISLEADING

SELLING AND BOTCHED

IMPLEMENTATION."

AND SHE FINALLY

CONCLUDES, QUOTE,"CAN HE

RECOVER?

I'M SORRY TO SAY I'M NOT AT

ALL CONFIDENT."

AND NOW FROM A RUTH MARCUS

COMMENTARY TO THIS WEEK'S

BRODY FILE COMMENTARY.

WE GOT A RECENT E-MAIL FROM

THE WHITE HOUSE WHEN WE

POSTED THIS COLUMN ENTITLED

"PRESIDENT PINOCCHIO."

IN THE ARTICLE, "THE BRODY

FILE" LAYS OUT THE HARD,

PLAIN FACTS THAT THE

PRESIDENT SIMPLY LIED TO THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE WHEN HE

SAID, IF YOU LIKE YOUR

DOCTOR AND YOUR HEALTH CARE

PLAN, YOU CAN KEEP THEM.

IT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE,

FOLKS, AND HE KNEW IT.

TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, HI

HIS APOLOGY REALLY WANT AN

APOLOGY AT ALL.

HE WAS MORE SORRY ABOUT THE

WAY THE BILL WAS STRUCTURED,

RATHER THAN THE TRUST THAT

THE PEOPLE PLACED IN HIM.

AND NOW HE SAYS YOU CAN

ACTUALLY GET ON THE

OBAMACARE WEBSITE, AND IT

WILL ACTUALLY BE BETTER THAN

THAN YOUR OLD ONE.

HOLD ON A MINUTE.

EVEN IF THAT IS TRUE, AND

FOR MANY THAT IS NOT GOING

TO BE TRUE, PRESIDENT

PINOCCHIO IS CHANGING THE

FOCUS NOW.

WHY DIDN'T HE SAY THAT WHEN

HE WAS OUT SELLING OBAMACARE

TO AMERICA?

WHERE WAS THAT TALK THEN?

THE SIMPLE FACT IS THAT THE

PRESIDENT LIED, AND NOW HE

IS TRYING TO WIGGLE OUT OF

IT WITH AN ASTERISK.

HE IS TRYING TO WORM HIS WAY

OUT OF IT BY TELLING THOSE

WHO ARE GETTING CANCELLATION

NOTICES, THAT HE IS TRYING

TO GIVE YOU BETTER BENEFITS

AND A BETTER WAY OF LIFE.

LOOK, THAT'S NOT THE ISSUE

AT ALL.

THE ISSUE IS THAT HE LIED.

ALL RIGHT, COMING UP NEXT,

AN INTERVIEW WITH CHARLES

KRAUTHIMER WITH FOX NEWS,

TALKING ABOUT HIS DAYS AS A

PHYSICIAN AND HIS FAITH, AND

HIS LOVE OF BASEBALL.

WE'RE BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: WE'RE BACK HERE

ON "THE BRODY FILE" SHOW.

ONE THING WE LIKE TO DO IS

GIVE YOU A DIFFERENT LOOK AT

SOME OF THE MEDIA

PERSONALITIES YOU SEE ON

YOUR TV SCREEN.

THIS WEEK, GET READY FOR

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER, WITH

FOX NEWS.

YOU MAY KNOW HIM FOR HIS

CONSERVATIVE COMMENTARY ON

POLITICS, BUT WE NOW WANT

YOU TO GET TO KNOW A LITTLE

MORE ABOUT HIS PERSONAL

STORY, AND HOW HE WENT FROM

A SPEECH WRITER FOR A

LIBERAL WALTER MONDALE, TO A

LEADING VOICE IN THE

CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT.

HE HAS A NEW BOOK OUT, AND

JOHN JESSUP CHECKS IN WITH

THAT STORY.

Reporter: CHARLES

KRAUTHAMMER SAYS ONE OF HIS

DEFINING MOMENTS CAME WHEN

HE WAS A YOUNG PHYSICIAN AT

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL

HOSPITAL.

WITH FOUR MONTHS TO GO IN

MY RESIDENCY AND LOOKING AT

A PRECIPICE AT THE END, ONE

OF THE PROFESSORS AT HARVARD

I WROTE A PAPER WITH, HE

CO-AUTHORED, AND WE WORKED

TOGETHER, OUT OF THE BLUE,

HE GETS APPOINTED BY JIMMY

CARTER, HEAD OF NATIONAL

INSTITUTES OF MENTAL

HEALTH.

THE SECOND I HEARD THAT, I

WENT INTO HIS OFFICE AND I

SAID, JERRY, I HEAR IN

WASHINGTON, IF YOU GO DOWN

THERE WITHOUT A RIGHT-HAND

MAN, THEY'RE GOING TO EAT

YOU ALIVE.

AND HE SAID, WHERE DID YOU

HEAR THAT?

AND I SAID WELL, I MADE IT

UP.

YOU'RE GOING TO NEED A

RIGHT-HAND MAN.

AND HE SAID WHO WOULD THAT

BE?

AND I SAID, YOU'RE LOOKING

AT HIM AND I GOT THE JOB.

BUT IF JIMMY CARTER DIDN'T

APPOINT THIS MAN, FOR

REASONS HAVING NOTHING TO DO

WITH ME, TO THAT JOB, I

DON'T KNOW WHERE I WOULD

BE.

I SURELY WOULD NOT BE HERE

ON THE SET WITH YOU.

David: YOU MAY BE

STILL PRACTICING MEDICINE?

I'D BE PRACTICING

MEDICINE.

I'D BE WORKING WITH RATS,

PROBABLY.

David: SOME MIGHT SAY

IN WASHINGTON, YOU'RE STILL

WORKING WITH THEM.

NOT THAT DIFFERENT.

Reporter: FOR A MAN

THAT ENJOYS TACKLING THE

COMPLEXITIES OF LIFE, HE HAS

A SIMPLE EXPLANATION.

PEOPLE GO HOW DO YOU GO

FROM WALTER MONDALE TO FOX

NEWS.

I SAY, I WAS YOUNG ONCE.

Reporter: IN HIS BOOK,

HE WRITES ABOUT POLITICS AND

WRITES ABOUT FAMILY, CHESS,

CATS, AND BASEBALL.

I LIKE THINGS THAT ARE

HARD AND BEAUTIFUL AND

ELEGANT.

THAT WOULD APPLY TO

GYMNASTICS, THAT WOULD APPLY

TO POETRY, THAT WOULD APPLY

TO OPERA.

THINGS THAT SHOW HUMAN

EXCELLENCE.

I HAPPEN TO LIKE IT IN

BASEBALL BECAUSE I PLAYED

THE GAME.

SO WHEN I SEE A SHORTSTOP

GOING INTO A HOLE TO FIELD A

GROUNDER AND HAS A JUMP

THROW TO GET IT TO FIRST

BASE, I SORT OF KNOW IN MY

BONES HOW HARD THAT IS.

I DON'T QUITE KNOW THE SAME

WHEN I WATCH A BALLET OR AN

OPERA.

THAT'S NOT WHAT I DID.

I THINK YOU SORT OF LOVE

WHAT YOU KNOW IN MANY WAYS.

AND BECAUSE I KNOW IT, I

LOVE IT.

AND I LOVE TO SEE IT

PLAYED.

Reporter: ARE YOU

OPTIMISTIC, AND SHOULD

AMERICANS CONTINUE TO BE

OPTMISTIC ABOUT OUR FUTURE?

I'VE ALWAYS HAD A SENSE

OF A HAND IN AMERICAN

HISTORY.

THE FOUNDING GENERATION --

WE WERE JUST A SMALL LITTLE

PEOPLE AT THE EDGE OF

WESTERN CIVILIZATION, AND WE

PRODUCED THE GREATEST PEOPLE

IN THE HISTORY OF HUMAN

SPECIES.

IN THE 19th CENTURY, WE

NEEDED A LINCOLN, AND WE GOT

A LINCOLN.

WE NEEDED AN F.D.R. TO GET

US THROUGH THE DEPRESSION,

AND WE GOT THAT.

WE NEEDED A REAGAN TO

RESTORE OUR SPIRITS AND

RESTORE OR ENERGY AND TO WIN

THE COLD WAR, AND WE GOT A

REAGAN.

I'M NOT SURE WE'RE GOING TO

GET A SAVIOR.

I THINK IT IS GROUNDED IN

THE BASIC DECENCY, GOODNESS,

AND COMMON SENSE OF THE

ORDINARY AMERICAN.

SO I REMAIN ETERNALLY

OPTMISTIC ABOUT AMERICANS.

David: THANK YOU,

JOHN.

A NICE PERSPECTIVE FROM

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER.

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE ROLL ON

FROM D.C., IS WISCONSIN

GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER

THINKING ABOUT RUNNING FOR

TOP COMMANDER IN

CHEESEHEAD?

WE'RE GOING TO EXPLORE IT,

NEXT.

David: WE'RE BACK HERE

ON "THE BRODY FILE."

TIME TO START THINKING ABOUT

THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION.

HEY, FOLKS, IT IS NEVER TOO

EARLY.

SO FIRST, LET'S BE CLEAR,

AND YOU'RE GOING TO NEED TO

SIT DOWN FOR THIS SO WE CAN

BREAK THIS NEWS TO YOU

GENTLY.

"THE BRODY FILE," WE'RE NOT

RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES.

I KNOW, I KNOW, YOU'RE

DISAPPOINTED.

WE APOLOGIZE.

ONE GUY, THOUGH, WHO IS

CLEARLY SERIOUS ABOUT

THROWING HIS HAT INTO THE

ROOM, THE RING, THE RING IN

THE ROOM, IS WISCONSIN

GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER.

THE TOP CHEESEHEAD HAS BEEN

LAYING HINTS FOR MONTHS, BUT

JUST RECENTLY HE SPOKE WITH

ABC NEWS ABOUT WHAT KIND OF

CANDIDATE SHOULD RUN FOR

PRESIDENT.

DESCRIBE FOR ME THE IDEAL

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE IN 2016?

I THINK IT HAS GOT TO BE

AN OUTSIDER, AND THEY SHOULD

BE A FORMER OR CURRENT

GOVERNOR.

PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE

SUCCESSFUL THINGS IN THEIR

STATES, WHO ARE READY TO

MOVE AMERICA FORWARD.

IT RULES OUT MARCO RUBIO,

TED CRUZ, AND RAND PAUL.

ALL GOOD GUYS, BUT IT HAS

GOT TO BE SOMEBODY WHO IS

VIEWED AS BEING

EXCEPTIONALLY REMOVED FROM

WASHINGTON.

YOU'RE CRITERIA WOULD

ALSO RULE OUT PAUL RYAN?

YEAH, AND I LOVE PAUL

RYAN.

IF HE HAD A FAN CLUB, I

WOULD BE THE PRESIDENT OF

THAT.

David: IT DOESN'T TAKE

A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO KNOW

THAT SCOTT WALKER IS GOING

TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT.

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, "THE

BRODY FILE" ACTUALLY SPENT

SOME TIME OUT IN WISCONSIN

WITH SCOTT WALKER.

WE WERE AT THE GOVERNOR'S

RESIDENCE.

AND HERE IS A CLIP FROM "THE

BRODY FILE" VIDEO VAULT

WHERE HE TALKS ABOUT GOD'S

PLAN FOR HIS LIFE.

*

ALL THIS IS JUST A

TEMPORARY THING.

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR US.

WHO KNOWS WHERE IT MIGHT BE,

EVEN BEYOND JUST SERVING AS

GOVERNOR OF THIS STATE.

BUT IF WE STAY TRUE TO THAT,

THERE ARE ALWAYS COMFORTS.

David: GET READY TO

HEAR A WHOLE LOT MORE ABOUT

SCOTT WALKER IN THE NEXT

COUPLE OF YEARS.

COMING UP NEXT, WE HEAD TO

ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, TO

CHECK IN ON ONE OF THE

BIGGEST PRO-LIFE LEGISLATIVE

STORIES TO COME ALONG IN

QUITE SOME TIME.

BRODY FILE, BACK IN A

MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOMEK

WELCOME BACK TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

PRO-LIFE SOURCES CONVERGED

ON ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO.

PRO-LIFERS WERE PUSHING A

CITY ORDINANCE THAT WOULD

PROTECT BABIES BEGINNING AT

20 WEEKS.

IT IS CALLED THE "UNBORN

CHILD PROTECTION

ORDINANCE."

THE THINKING IS THAT IF

PRO-LIFERS PREVAILED, IT

WOULD BUILD MOMENTUM FOR A

FEDERAL BILL THAT WOULD

APPLY TO ALL STATES.

WELL, IT DIDN'T WORK OUT TOO

WELL IN ALBUQUERQUE.

JOINING ME IS MARJORIE FROM

SUSAN B.ANTHONY'S, THANK YOU

FOR BEING HERE.

I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO

BEING HERE.

IT IS A GOOD PLACE TO BE

WITH FRIENDS.

David: WHAT HAPPENED?

WHAT HAPPENED IN

ALBUQUERQUE, AND WHAT WERE

SOME OF THE DYNAMICS THAT

LED TO THE FRUSTRATING LOSS

THERE?

I THINK WE'RE LOOKING AT

DAVID AND GOLIATH ROUND

THREE.

NUMBER TWO WAS VIRGINIA,

WHERE WE GOT STOMPED AGAIN,

AND ROUND THREE, HERE.

AN EXTREMELY POPULAR ISSUE,

A THIRD TRIMESTER,

COMPLETELY EMBRACED BY THE

HISPANIC COMMUNITY, AND

PRETTY MUCH EVERY

DEMOGRAPHIC IN THAT TOWN,

AND YET WE LOST.

SO IT IS A TIME TO TAKE A

DEEP BREATH AND ASK AN

IMPORTANT QUESTION ABOUT WHY

WHEN SUCH AN INCREDIBLY

POPULAR ISSUE, COMPLETELY,

ORGANICALLY BROUGHT UP FROM

THE GRASSROOTS, PUT ON THE

BALLOT, WHY DID WE LOSE?

IS IT BECAUSE ALL OF A

SUDDEN PEOPLE CHANGED THEIR

MINDS IN A PERIOD OF

MONTHS?

NO.

THERE IS A PERFECT

COORDINATION, A LOVELY

HARMONY ON THE OTHER SIDE.

IN THAT ELECTION, THERE WAS

THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN,

ORGANIZING FOR AMERICA,

PLANNED PARENTHOOD, AND THE

LOCALS ON THE GROUND, AND

THE ACLU.

THEY MIGHT NOT REALIZE, OF

COURSE, WE DIDN'T HAVE ALL

OF THAT.

WE HAD WHAT WE HAVE, AND WE

HAD THE ORGANIZATIONS ON THE

GROUND.

AND WE WERE OUT STANCED FOUR

TO ONE.

IT IS AMAZING WHAT GREAT ON

THE GROUND TURNOUT

ORGANIZATIONS CAN DO.

David: WHERE DO YOU GO

FROM HERE TO GETTING MORE

FOLKS TO THE FIGHT, IF YOU

WILL?

I THINK GETTING MORE

FOLKS TO THE FIGHT IS

EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING TO

HAVE TO HAPPEN.

AND THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE IN

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

AND THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE IN

ALL SORTS OF OTHER

ORGANIZATIONS.

AND THERE WILL BE GOOD

PEOPLE IN THE PRESIDENTIAL

CAMPAIGN ON THE REPUBLICAN

SIDE.

IT IS THOSE PEOPLE WE'RE

GOING TO BE TALKING TO.

David: THE PRO-LIFERS

WILL CONTINUE TO BATTLE ON.

HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE BIG

FAMILY FEUD BETWEEN LIZ

CHENEY AND MARY CHENEY?

THERE DAD,, OF COURSE, IS

DICK CHENEY.

LIZ IS RUNNING FOR THE

SENATE IN WYOMING AND SHE

SUPPORTS TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE.

GOOD FOR HER.

HER SISTER IS GAY, AND

MARRIED UNDER THE LAW.

HERE IS LIZ ON FOX NEWS

SUNDAY.

I DON'T THINK WE OUGHT TO

DISCRIMINATE AGAINST PEOPLE

BECAUSE OF THEIR SEXUAL

ORIENTATION.

IF THEY WANT THEIR PARTNER

TO BE ABLE TO HAVE HEALTH

BENEFITS, OR BE DESIGNATED

IN THEIR LIFE INSURANCE,

THERE IS NO REASON WE

SHOULDN'T DO THAT.

BUT I DON'T SUPPORT AMENDING

THE CONSTITUTION ON THAT.

I DO BELIEVE IN THE

TRADITIONAL DEFINITION OF

MARRIAGE.

David:

David: MARY SAYS HER

SISTER IS ON THE WRONG SIDE

OF THE ISSUE.

AND SHE REFUSES TO SEE HER

SISTER FOR CHRISTMAS.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS HEADED

FOR A DR. PHIL SHOW.

WE'RE BACK WITH THE OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK WHICH

WILL HAVE THE WIVES OF THIS

COUNTRY NONE TOO HAPPY.

David: WE'RE BACK HERE

ON THE BIG SHOW WE LIKE TO

CALL "THE BRODY FILE."

IF WE HAD A JERK OF THE WEEK

SEGMENT, THIS NEXT GUY WOULD

WIN IT HANDS DOWN.

INSTEAD, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE

TO SETTLE FOR THE OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

*

[HAVA NAGILA]

David: ALL RIGHT, MEN,

LISTEN UP.

HERE IS A GOOD LESSON IN

WHATNOT TO DO WHEN IT COMES

TO YOUR WIFE.

DO NOT -- WHATEVER YOU DO,

DON'T BLOW HER OFF.

DON'T MAKE HER LOOK LIKE SHE

IS A NUISANCE, BECAUSE HERE

IS STEVE LONGAN, THE GUY

THAT LOST THE SENATE RACE IN

NEW JERSEY EARLIER IN THE

MONTH.

CHECK OUT WHAT HE DOES TO

HIS WIFE DURING HIS

CONCESSION SPEECH.

I HAVE, UM, SPENT THE

LAST 20 YEARS OF MY LIFE IN

POLITICS, SERVING THE PEOPLE

OF NEW JERSEY IN THE WAY I

THOUGHT I BEST COULD.

David: COULD WE SEE

THAT AGAIN ON "THE BRODY

FILE" INSTANT REPLAY

CAMERA.

HEY, BUDDY, WHAT ARE YOU

DOING.

YOUR WIFE IS TRYING TO

CONSOLE YOU AND YOU BLOW HER

OFF.

THAT'S NOT COOL AT ALL.

THAT IS THE OY-GEVALT

LEVEL.

OUR BEST GUESS IS MR. LONGAN

WAS VERY LONELY AND HE WAS

PROBABLY SLEEPING IN THE

DOGHOUSE THAT EVENING, AND

MAYBE EVEN LONGER THAN

THAT.

THAT IS DISGRACEFUL.

AND THAT DOES IT FOR THIS

WEEK, EVERYBODY.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, GOD BLESS.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
