Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY)
Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI)
Stephanopoulos: OMG the sequester cuts
the President and Congress agreed to will
wreck America's military and ruin the economy!
Rogers: we should have these terrible
cuts but allow for more flexibility
Engel: these across the board cuts are
incredibly stupid that we should let go
forward for a week or two
Will: Obama wants Americans to suffer
pain which these reasonable cuts will cause
Rogers: you can't treat some bureaucrat
in D.C. the same as a sailor attacking
Amanpour: the military is sacred in the
U.S. and now our precious seamen may
not be allowed to go and fight
useless wars in other countries
Stephanopoulos: China is launching
cyber attacks on our oil wells!
Rogers: America is attacked in this war
every day if you count petty credit card theft
Stephanopoulos: that is terrifying
Rogers: in the history of the world it has
never happened that one country has stolen
the intellectual property of another country
Will: China is a bunch of gangters
but Obama does it too
Rogers: The CIA does not conduct
espionage for private businesses –
its against the law ergo the CIA would
never ever do that - never ever - pinky swear!
Engel: The Chinese pooh pooh cyber attacks
Amanpour: we should impose
sanctions on China which holds our debt
Rogers: we should forbid Chinese
leaders from visiting Disneyland
Amanpour: we're facing a cyber 9/11!
Will: Obama is using cyber attacks against Iran!
Rogers: you can't believe things in the
press that makes the President look tough
Amanpour: so Obama hasn't done that?
Rogers: those wily Orientals are thieves!
Stephanopoulos: is this a military problem?
Rogers: our admirable investment banks
are being hit by denial of service attacks!
Stephanopoulos: Terry what's happening in Syria?
Moran: Syria is totally collapsing and
Al Qeada is taking a lead role
Stephanopoulos: wow – what's the solution?
Moran: Obama has to arm the rebels or
broker a peace with Russia and a vicious dictator
Engel: it's time to arm the rebels
Stephanopoulos: I hear the death star
has a vulnerable spot
Engel: in 1979 Syria became a charter
member of Terror States of the World
Engel: Syria could disrupt Jordan
Stephanopoulos: so sad - it's his 50th birthday
Rogers: yes but Obama is still weak!
Stephanopoulos: so you've said
Rogers: we need to be really
aggressive by imposing a No Fly Zone
Amanpour: the rebels refuse to meet with
America because Americans won't meet with them
Stephanopoulos: that makes sense
Amanpour: if Syria become Somalia
that would be bad
Stephanopoulos: true but we
might get a good movie out of it
Amanpour: we need to enjoy a nice
short war in the middle east for a change
Will: Syria is like the Spanish Civil War
which ended so happily
Engel: if we kill Assad it will make
Iran very sad which is good
Muir: the U.S. sanctions have caused
inflation in Iran – movies cost almost $15!
Stephanopoulos: oh my god
Amanpour: shockingly the sanctions have
affected ordinary people more than
the elites and leaders
Stephanopoulos: how surprising
Amanpour: will Congress allow Obama
to negotiate with Iran or grandstand on the issue?
Stephanopoulos: lol good one
Rogers: these people are not French
or German – they are irrational Arabs!
Rogers: whatever - imagine people
from the middle east with a nuclear bomb!
Stephanopoulos: like Israel?
Engel: we should start of war with Iran
if they get the bomb
Will: Obama said he would do that
Engel: good - they scare me
Amanpour: are Iranians really irrational?
Rogers: yes – trying to get access to a
Wall Street bank for good financial
information is not rational!
Stephanopoulos: good point Buck
