McCain: I Don't Understand Why GOP Would Filibuster Senate Gun Bill
BOB SCHIEFFER: Let's see what Senator McCain, how-- what's your thought on a filibuster on this. Would you be against that? SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN: I don't understand it. The purpose of the United States senate is to debate and to vote and to let the people know where we stand-- BOB SCHIEFFER: So you'd encourage Republicans not to filibuster. SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN: I would not only encourage it. I don't understand it. What are we afraid of? Why would we not want, if this issue is as important as all of us think it is, why not take it on the world's greatest deliberative--that's the greatest exaggeration in history, by the way--but, you know, why not take it up an amendment and debate. The American people will profit from it. I do not understand why United States senators want to block debate when the leader has said that we can have amendments. Send to a Friend | Permalink

Archbishop Dolan: Pope Francis "A Shot In The Arm" For The Catholic Church
BOB SCHIEFFER, CBS NEWS: What do you think it means to Catholics in America that we now have a pope who is from the New World and not from Europe? CARDINAL TIMOTHY DOLAN: I think it means a lot. And I think especially for us, Bob, it means two things. Number one, that he comes from what the Europeans still refer to as the New World, from Latin America. And it reminds us of how the church is growing, how the church is universal, how in some ways, the church started in Jerusalem and went to Rome, that's part of our glorious and revered history. But now the church has expand, North and South America, Asia, Africa -- that's where the real boom is, that's where the real life is. And secondly, a booster shot for us, especially in North America, where we're blessed with a wonderfully vibrant Hispanic and Latino population. Boy, it was a real shot in the arm. These people are moved to tears. You talk about a sense of excitement. I can't go anywhere in New York City where I've got people from Mexico, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Puerto Rico, who are coming up in tears saying we have a Latin American pope. It's a real shot in the arm for us as Catholics. Send to a Friend | Permalink

Paul Ryan: "We Do Not Have A Debt Crisis Right Now But We See It Coming"
"To borrow a phrase from my friend Erskine Bowles, we are the healthiest-looking horse in the glue factory. That means America is still a step ahead of the European nations who are confronting a debt crisis, of Japan, that's in its second lost decade. It's probably because of our resilient economy, because of our world currency status," Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on "Face the Nation" today. "So we do not have a debt crisis right now. But, we see it coming. We know it's irrefutably happening. And the point we're trying to make with our budget is, let's get ahead of this problem," he said. Send to a Friend | Permalink
Priebus: "We've Done A Really Lousy Job Of Branding And Marketing"
"We're a little too bit mass focused and not focused on people's hearts that we don't relate to I think, average Americans more than we should. Stuffy old guys too much and it really is painful to hear, because reality is we have a very young party I mean you just had Paul Ryan on he's 42. Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Nikki Haley, I mean it's a young party. But it just kind of shows you we've done a really lousy job of branding and marketing who we are," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said on CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday. Send to a Friend | Permalink
