Transcript by Newsy. BY JENNIFER MECKLES You're watching multisource political video news analysis from Newsy. In a new public service announcement, Barbara Bush supports gay marriage in New York. No, we’re not talking about mother Bush --- we’re talking about the quiet, conservative, Ivy-league educated twin, so rarely heard from. Here’s the video: “I’m Barbara Bush, and I’m a New Yorker for marriage equality. .. New York is about fairness, and equality. And everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love. Join us.” Bush’s father, former president George Bush -- was outspoken against legalizing gay marriage, having pushed for a constitutional amendment banning such unions. But Barbara is joining a growing movement of young women from prominent Republican families who support gay marriage: Women like Meghan McCain, daughter of senator John McCain and Mary Cheney, former vice president Dick Cheney’s openly lesbian daughter. The Republican party still officially opposes gay marriage. But President Obama and former president Bill Clinton have also been hesitant to legalize gay unions. This has many media outlets saying -- this is no longer a PARTISAN issue. Politico calls it a “generational divide.” Which seems to be backed by a CNN poll: “Among those 18 to 34 years old, 58 percent said same-sex marriages should be legal... 42 percent among respondents 35 to 49 years old, and to 41 percent for those 50 to 64 years of age... Only 24 percent of Americans 65 and older support recognizing same-sex marriages as valid.” A New York Times writer says this video is important for another reason -- Jenna Bush is often in the spotlight -- but Barbara is the quiet twin. “[Bush] rarely speaks out on American political issues, making her foray into the same-sex marriage debate so striking.” Fox News dubs Bush the “Power Player of the Week,” and goes beyond the PSA to detail her other passion: Global Health Care, her project to provide better health care around the world. FOX’s Chris Wallace asks Bush if these are stepping stones to a bigger career move: WALLACE: “Do you have any interest... in running for office?” BUSH: “Jenna and I both grew up with our grandfather in politics, and our dad in politics, and I just don’t see that being a decision I would want to make for myself in the future.” Bush is just one of many high-profile New Yorkers featured in the videos -- aimed at state legislators debating a marriage equality bill in Albany. So what do you think about this new wave of young Republicans with more liberal social views? Are Barbara, Meghan, and Mary setting the tone for a new generation of GOP?

BY ALANA YOUNG ANCHOR CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource politics video news analysis from Newsy. Gay rights has long been a controversial issue for many Americans -- but when did it become a black/white thing? Or did it? When Mr. Obama ordered the Justice Department not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act -- critics say he alienated the black community. In an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says Mr. Obama’s decision that DOMA is unconstitutional could destroy the president. HUCKABEE: “He alienated the African American community. Overwhelmingly, African-Americans support traditional marriages more than Hispanics and more than whites. Within the white community it’s about 56%. 65% in the Hispanic. 75% in the African American community.” Huckabee didn’t say where his numbers came from -- but according to the Pew Research Center in 2010 -- 46 percent of white respondents opposed gay marriage -- compared to 59 percent of black respondents. Still - on Huckabee’s own show -- also on Fox News -- the host interviews the Head of the Black Church Initiative Reverend Anthony Evans, who says ultimately the black church is very unhappy with Mr. Obama’s decision. EVANS: “... He continued to advocate breaking up that (his) family by interjecting this sort of foreign object called gay marriage and it just doesn’t fit in our congregations and our congregants believe that the president is, seems to be struggling with this issue.” And the African-American Policy Forum writes -- Mr. Obama is just lying to the American people. “It isn’t that he and his administration just now concluded that DOMA is unconstitutional. The President has long thought that. ... The Administration’s position on DOMA now would be more worthy of respect if he had been more honest from the beginning.” But the National Black Justice Coalition, a civil rights organization for the black LGBT community, says this issue isn’t black and white -- and thanks the President for his crusade for equality. “The President’s decision to stop defending DOMA lawsuits moves our nation away from embracing discriminatory, punitive policies and significantly closer to recognizing the fundamental liberty for all Americans.” And panelist on the weekly show “Our World with Black Enterprise” says gay rights really is a civil rights issue, and adds the black community needs to understand civil rights is not just a race thing. SPEAKER: “Even as an African-American community we often think about civil rights only as black people. But even if we’re talk about black people, some black people are gay, some black people are lesbian, some black people are transgendered, and if they’re in school and they’re being harassed not on the basis of race, but on the basis of their gender or sexual identity, we have to have the same sense of urgency, right?” So how could this affect the president in 2012? Some church leaders tell The Washington Post this issue really isn’t the end-all-be-all. And a professor at NYU tells the Post Mr. Obama’s decision could even change the black community’s view on gay rights. "Given that a sub-share of black voters are so loyal to Obama, and he commands a fair amount of respect, my instinct is that a public change of heart on his part to support gay marriage could have a substantial impact on black voters.” Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos to receive daily updates.

BY MALLORY PERRYMAN You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This Sunday….the secretaries are sent out to talk about Libya. Why the U.S. is there- and when it’s getting out. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates tells NBC’s David Gregory- this is a limited mission that’s going according to plan. Robert Gates (U.S. Secretary of Defense): “The President has made it very clear there will be no American troops on the ground in Libya. This eventually is going to have to be settled by the Libyans themselves. Perhaps the UN can mediate or whatever but in terms of the military commitment, the president has put some very strict limitations in terms of what we ware prepared to do.” And sitting on Gates’ right- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who says the U.S. wasn’t going to opt out when the international community was calling for action. Hillary Clinton (U.S. Secretary of State): “Can you imagine David if we were sitting here and Gaddafi had gotten to Bengazi and in a city of 700,000 people he has massacred tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands had fled over the border destabilizing Egypt. Everybody would be saying, why didn’t the president do something?” The duo also sat down with CBS’ Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation, where Secretary Gates revealed- embattled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is doing his best to make the Allies- the bad guys. Robert Gates (U.S. Secretary of Defense): "We have trouble coming up with proof of any civilian casualties that we have been responsible for. But we do have a lot of intelligence reporting about Qaddafi taking the bodies of the people he's killed and putting them at the sites where we've attacked. “ As for what happens next, the secretaries say the U.S. expects coalition forces to take over enforcement of the UN-backed no-fly zone. As for intervening in other revolting nations, Secretary Clinton says- there are a few things that must happen before the U.S. will step in. Here, she’s referring to Syria. Hillary Clinton (U.S. Secretary of State): “If there were a coalition of the international community. If there were the passage of a Security Council resolution. If there were a call by the Arab League. If there was a condemnation that was universal.” On CNN’s State of the Union, Democratic Senator Carl Levin tried to simplify the argument for those in favor of intervention in Libya. Candy Crowley sums it up. Candy Crowley (Host, State of the Union): “You know Africa is full of countries where leaders are slaughtering their people in the hundreds of thousands and we’ve done nothing about that. So the tipping point to you is ‘Well if they ask us to come and the international community supports it, then we’ll go. That’s your… Sen. Carl Levin (D- MI): “That’s key. That’s absolutely critical.” But some Sunday round table members aren’t buying the secretaries’ mission accomplished press circuit. The BBC’s Ted Koppel asks- why Libya? Ted Koppel (The BBC): “The question hasn’t yet been answered as to why it is that Libya of all countries in that region has won the humanitarian defense sweepstakes of 2011.” And ABC’s George Will argues the U.S. is way too optimistic about the chances of democracy in Libya. George Will (ABC): “Our objective now, believe it or not, is to create a vacuum by decapitating the regime by getting rid of Gaddafi, into which we hope in this tribal society that something good will flow.” But on the Meet the Press roundtable, Savannah Guthrie points out, President Obama isn’t thrilled about the situation either. Savannah Guthrie (MSNBC): “The president is obviously not happy with his set of choices. One person told me in a meeting he called this military action in Libya a ‘turd sandwich’ which he was quoting one of his national security aides who likes to use that term.” Finally- while Secretaries Gates and Clinton made their rounds on ABC, CBS, and NBC… Chris Wallace was pretty unhappy they didn’t stop by Fox News…and he let everybody know about it. Chris Wallace (Fox News Sunday): “Despite the fact that we routinely have more viewers than two of those Sunday shows, the Obama team felt no need to explain to the millions of you who watch this program and Fox News why they have sent U.S. servicemen and women into combat. We thought you’d like to know.” Mediaite notes- to be fair- the duo didn’t appear on CNN’s State of the Union either. So far, no on-air complaints from host Candy Crowley.

BY MALLORY PERRYMAN AND ALYSSA CARTEE ANCHOR ALEX ROZIER You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This Sunday... the GOP’s budget boss reveals how much he wants to cut. We’re talking trillions. And Democrats respond- calling the GOP’s plan far-fetched...political gameplay...catered to the Tea Party’s extreme ideas. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan dropped the budget bomb on Fox News Sunday. Rep. Paul Ryan (R- WI): “Looking at more than that right now. We're fine-tuning the numbers. Congressional budget office literally today, over the weekend. We'll cut more than that.” Chris Wallace: “More than $4 trillion, which is a significant number. That was the President's Debt Commission cut it by $4 trillion.” Rep. Ryan: “We'll exceed the goals put out in the President's Debt Commission.” Ryan’s plan includes a major revamping of Medicare and Medicaid. Host Chris Wallace asked his Sunday panel, will the plan work? Bill Kristol says- maybe- but it won’t be popular. Bill Kristol: “I think it's both. He will get criticized from the left and right. … We have a crisis. We're going bankrupt and Paul Ryan is trying to prevent us from doing that. I think it can be sold as policy and politics and we'll get it attacked from the right for being too slow and from President Obama being too harsh.” But Democrats blasted the plan on the other Sunday shows. Senator Mike Warner tells CNN’s Candy Crowley, Ryan’s plan just ain’t gonna work. Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA): “I’m anxious to see Congressman Ryan’s plan. My understanding is he’s going to do all these things and not look at defense spending, not look at major tax reform that would actually raise revenues. I don’t know how you get there without basically taking a meat axe to those programs who protect the most vulnerable in our country.” And Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tells CBS’ Bob Scheiffer, he believes the GOP’s motives are coming from elsewhere. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) : “The leadership in the house has to make a decision whether they are going to do the right thing for the country or do the right thing for the tea party.” Scheiffer: “Are you saying that Speaker Boehner and the Republicans who have been here a while are afraid of the tea party? Is that what’s going on here?” Reid: “That’s a pretty good choice of words. The answer is yes. The tea party is dictating a lot that goes on.” Republicans accused of being afraid of the Tea Party- but Republican Senator Lindsey Graham counters- Democrats would be wise to be afraid of someone as well. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): “Our Democratic friends should be afraid of the public. How did you lose the House in such overwhelming numbers? How did you lose so many Senate seats? It was about spending.” So it all this budget blabber just politics as usual? Senator Dick Durbin tells NBC’s David Gregory, the GOP isn’t even serious about fixing the budget. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL): “David, I think the House Republicans lose all credibility when they decide that this fight isn’t over the deficit, it isn’t over the amount of spending cuts, but rather it’s to debate and re-litigate political issues that have been in Washington for decades. For goodness sakes, let’s get our job done.” But it looks like red and blue agree on one thing- the budget crisis isn’t a game. Here’s Senator John Cornyn on CNN. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX): “I hope we can solve the problem because frankly people are looking for a little bit of adult interaction and they’re interested in solutions to our debt and to our deficits and not just games and that’s what we’re getting it looks like.” Congress has until Friday to figure out a compromise and avoid a shutdown. So far, lawmakers have passed six temporary short-term budgets. 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY ALYSSA CARTEE ANCHOR ALEX ROZIER You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This Sunday topics ranged from tornado destruction in the South to progress in Libya. But discussion always came back to the budget- from the birther’s lack of focus on the issue to the way it impacts education. As the death toll in the South continues to rise - Virgina Governor Bob McDonnell talked to NBC’s David Gregory about support after one of the greatest natural disasters in U.S. history. McDonnell: “The American people, while we disagree on some things, when we are attacked or we have a catastrophe like this we bind together and work together and help each other better than any other country on Earth.” CBS’ Face the Nation tackled another hot topic, Libya- with Republican Senator John McCain expressing disappointment in the nation’s involvement. Schieffer: “Are you satisfied with how the administration is handling this?” McCain: “I’m not because we have taken a backseat role. The President has quote ‘withdrawn’ from NATO.” Of course, the budget still reigns as the leading Sunday topic. On the Meet the Press panel, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg sounded the weekly call for fiscal compromise. Bloomberg: “How much chaos and destruction to our economy do we have to do before everyone in Washington starts acting like an adult, coming together and not pandering to small voting blocks?” And this week’s White House representative- Senior Advisor David Axelrod- says the Obama administration is trying to strike a careful balance. Axelrod: “We have certain responsibilities. One is to be fiscally responsible but we also have a responsibility to our future. We have a social compact that we have to keep with our senior citizens, with our children to educate them and give them the tools to compete. There are certain things we know we have to do. That oughta guide our decision making here.” On ABC’s This Week, analysts even tied the birther movement to economic insecurity. Stockman: “Since they’re not worried, since they don’t fear the consequence of what they’re doing, they’re willing to engage in this kind of you know rank theatre when so to speak Rome is burning.” Flash Huffington: “But this is not just something that happens in times of deep economic anxiety. Paranoid politics can thrive and demagogy can thrive. People can believe things for which there’s no evidence.” CNN’s State of the Union took a new angle on the budget crisis- hosting a panel to discuss how schools are dealing with budget woes. Randi Weingarten (Pres. of American Federation of Teachers): “On the ground right now as we are talking in Washington, there are cuts in school budgets throughout the country so kids are losing out in terms of music, they’re losing out in terms of sports, they’re losing out in terms of arts. They are losing the kind of activities that they need to engage them.” Steve Perry (founder of Capitol Preparatory Magnet School): “I think that one of the best things to happen to public education has been the budget crisis because it has required us to look into ourselves and make decisions.” But Fox News stuck to a more familiar topic- raising the debt ceiling. Tea party favorite Michelle Bachmann stressed the urgency of the issue to host Chris Wallace. Bachmann: “Don’t let anyone tell you that by increasing the debt limit, the ability for the federal government to keep borrowing, that somehow that is going to show the world that we're even more credit worthy because we're borrowing? Very soon, Chris, we are going to be at the point where we are going to be borrowing more money so that we're essentially having a $4 trillion budget and $2 trillion of it will be borrowed money. We can't live that way.” But ABC’s This Week panelist Chrystia Freeland thinks says- lawmakers talk about the budget crisis every week- but there’s something major missing from the conversation. Chrystia Freeland: “Well I think it’s always going to be a political debate. But what I think is really missing in both Republican and the Democratic approach right now and is really an example of political cowardice is taxes. You know, and we heard in your interview, Christean, Ryan saying ‘well this is about cutting spending.’ It’s partly about cutting spending but it is also going to be about raising taxes. And that’s the thing that I think no one has the courage to talk about.” Congress must vote on the debt ceiling by May 16th. The bi-partisan ‘Gang of Six’ is expected to present its budget plan in the coming weeks.

BY ALYSSA CARTEE ANCHOR ALEX ROZIER You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This about the take-down of Osama bin Laden. From confidence in President Obama’s decision, to funding the war on terror, to Pakistan’s role in the mission. White House National Security Adviser Tom Donilon was a guest on four of the five Sunday shows. He told Fox News’ Chris Wallace-- the decision to invade the compound was the president’s -- and the president’s alone. Donilon: “At the end of the day, we ask our president to make the decision. It’s the president who’s up in the situation room, stands up, walks across that colonnade by the rose garden, which is a walk you know so very well, into the residence and makes that decision. That's where I focus because he had obviously weighed this through a rigorous process. The decision was on his shoulders.” And that decision earned him some political capital- in fact, Obama’s approval ratings rose above 50% after bin Laden’s death. Former Senior political advisor Anita Dunn says the terrorist take-down could help the president see a second term. Dunn: “I think the economy is the main issue, but I think when people look at the economy and look at challenges in terms of the deficit, they look at the people. Elections are choices between two people, not between two sets of issues. What they see when they see the president is somebody who is an advocate for their interests.” But what’s been good press for the president is bad news for the U.S.’ relationship with Pakistan. One panelist on ABC’s This Week says Americans are suspicious of the nation where Bin Laden was found. Tom Ricks: “I actually think we’re going to have to see a major change in U.S.- Pakistan relations. This game of Charlie Brown and the football that we’ve played with them for decades - I think the jig is up. I don’t think the American people will stand for it. *Flash* I don’t think Congress is going to stand for giving four billion dollars a year to a country that is acting like an enemy.” But Senator Richard Lugar tells CNN’s Candy Crowley- the U.S./Pakistan relationship is too important to throw away. Crowley: “In the end do you see the U.S. going, ‘okay, no more money? You tried to protect Osama bin Laden.’ ” Sen. Richard Lugar : “No, I don't see that at all. As a matter of fact, Pakistan is a critical factor in the war against terror. Our war the world's war against it, simply because there are a lot of terrorists in Pakistan. There are Al Qaeda still. There are many Taliban that go back and forth to Afghanistan.” ABC’s George Will says critical or not, too much money is being spent on the war against Al Qaeda. George Will: “It’s our longest war now, 10 years, longest in our national history. Do the arithmetic. There are 140 thousand coalition forces there. There are, at the top estimate, about 100 Al Qaeda fighters there. That’s 1,400 soldiers at a million dollars per year there. 1.4 billion dollars per Al Qaeda fighter. The arithmetic doesn’t make sense.” Reports say the information that has been recovered from bin Laden’s compound was the single largest intelligence gathering from one person. Senator John Kerry says the information proves bin Laden was not just a symbolic leader. Sen. John Kerry (D-MA): “The information that comes out of it absolutely underscores the degree to which Osama bin Laden was actively running, plotting, organizing, recruiting, engaged in, the entire management of Al Qaeda. This man was not retired. He had not stepped back. He had not receded into the shadows. He was not irrelevant. He was, in fact, the center.” And though most of the Sunday crowd lauded Bin Laden’s death as good news for the U.S., The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward cautions- the war on terror is far from over. Bob Woodward (Washington Post): “Of course this is very good news but very good news is rarely followed by better news. It’s followed by bad news. And things can happen in Arab Spring. In the White House it’s the question - Is it Yemen? Is it Libya? Is it Egypt? Is it Saudi Arabia? All of these places are explosive. Pakistan is still a powder keg of the region.” Pakistan’s U.S. Ambassador tells ABC’s Christiane Amanpour, the Pakistani government is investigating how Bin Laden was able to live in Pakistan undetected. He said quote “head will roll” if it’s discovered that anyone knew anything about Bin Laden’s hideout.
