This Week with George Stephanopoulos – October 20, 2013

Host: Martha Raddatz
Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL)
Jeb Bush
Jon Karl
Jeff Zeleny

Raddatz: OMG Hillary Clinton is running for President!

Karl: yes she is – I'm squeeing!

Raddatz: Obama says after shut down
there are no winners but aren't
the tea party losers?

Karl: Obama drew a red line and he
managed to break the tea party totally

Raddatz: so he won

Karl: no because Obama has been
President and has totally failed to
get a big piece of bipartisan legislation

Zeleny: Republicans know they lost
but they refuse to raise taxes

Karl: Democrats want to kick the GOP
while they are down which is very mean

[ break ]

Raddatz: Nancy I know you blame
Republicans but I speak for all the
American people and they are disgusted
and blame all sides so please tell me
how this is all the Democrats fault

Pelosi: the Senate and President all agreed
on a budget and Boehner wouldn't even
bring a bipartisan plan to the floor

Raddatz: you're not accepting blame
which you are required to do under
the rules of the Washington media

Pelosi: the GOP don't care about shutting down the government

Raddatz: but both sides are to blame
but mostly Democrats for not changing
the tone in Washington

Pelosi: the point is we're going to have
another crisis in January if we don't
reach an agreement

Raddatz: the Obamacare website
rollout has been a disaster

Pelosi: sure it's slow but the point
is people really want these changes

Raddatz: will the Republicans
use it as a weapon?

Pelosi: what a stupid horse-race question

Raddatz: doesn't Hillary have
to run for President?

Pelosi: she can do whatever
she wants

Raddatz: Tom Foley died

Pelosi: so did Bill Young you
annoying bint

[ break ]

Raddatz: there is a civil war in
the Republican Party!

Karl: that's right – the tea party 
vs. the moderates! Only one can survive!

[ break ]

Cruz: the shutdown was a great idea
to highlight the faults of Obamacare

Karl: this was a terrible unpopular
shutdown and it was all your fault

Cruz: no it was Obama's fault for
not repealing his signature law

Karl: that's crazy

Cruz: I'm sticking with it

Karl: you are despised in Washington DC

Cruz: I'd rather be beloved in Texas 
and hated in Washington

Karl: Texas newspapers are
retracting their endorsement of you

Cruz: they're just jealous of my awesomeness

Karl: you said Republicans bombed other Republicans

Cruz: we kept attacking each other
it was terrible!

Karl: will you filibuster the budget again?

Cruz: I will do anything to stop Obamacare

Karl: good luck Tom

Cruz: Ted

Karl: whatever

[ break ]

Karl: did Republicans gain 
anything from the shutdown?

Bush: no

Karl: it seems like a problem

Bush: it was a huge tactical mistake

Karl: oops

Bush: it was a miscalculation to
threaten not to raise the debt ceiling

Karl: some Republicans say we
don't need to raise the debt ceiling

Bush: that's insane – the U.S. 
credit must be upheld!

Karl: you're bashing Republicans a lot

Bush: we need civility and to solve
problems and much of this is Obama's fault

Karl: maybe but Ted Cruz say he
would do all this over again

Bush: maybe we should have an
alternative to Obamacare

Karl: there's an idea

Karl: what would you say to Ted Cruz?

Bush: I would say to Ted Cruz –
show a little fucking self-restraint dude!

Karl: I don't see that happening

[ break ]

Raddatz: while “polls” show the 
American people hate Republicans 
and blame them for the shutdown 
 we went out to find a group of 
people who love the shutdown

Tea Party American: the government
needs to stop wasting money

Reporter: the shutdown lost $24 billion

Tea Party American: it's outrageous 
to close memorials!

Reporter: so the shutdown was bad?

Tea Party American: the shut down was
excellent until Obama came along
and closed a war memorial

Reporter: got it

Tea Party American: Obamacare is a disaster

Reporter: what do you think of Obama?

Tea Party American: I like Obama a lot and would like to play golf with him

Reporter: but you all seem mad

Tea Party American: because I love America!

Reporter: what did the shut down accomplish?

Tea Party American: we're on your tv show

Reporter: good point

[ break ]

Raddatz: aren't you ashamed – 
the American people look at all of 
Congress and are disgusted with all of you

Kinzinger: I'm excited to see Obama finally
forced to negotiate – this very 
high debt is unacceptable

Raddatz: when did you realize this?

Kinzinger: January of 2009
