Rebecca Jarvis
Dr. Heidi Cullen
Rick Klein
Jon Karl
Katrina Vanden Heuvel
Peggy Noonan
Alicia Menendez

Stephanopoulos: OMG what's the deal
with all this weird weather?

Reporter: the Great Lakes are solid
ice and the South is in a deep freeze

Philly Reporter: there was 100-car 5-mile
long car accident in Pennsylvania

Stephanopoulos: holy shit

Reporter: a single weather patter is causing
snowstorms in the East and droughts out west

California Reporter: this is worst drought
in decades and is ending an entire way of life

Reporter: is this climate change? Maybe!

Stephanopoulos: Becky bad weather 
hurts the economy

Jarvis: it sure does – 75,000 flights 
were cancelled devastating the 
packaged peanut industry

Stephanopoulos: wow

Jarvis: also the economy shrinks when
people don't leave their
house for six months at a time

Stephanopoulos: Governor how's it
going in North Carolina?

McCrory: it's really tough – we only have
one shovel and we all have to share it

Stephanopoulos: what about Los Angeles?

Garcetti: this terrible drought
is the new status quo

Stephanopoulos: yikes

Cullen: it's all one giant weather pattern
and what we expect from climate change

Stephanopoulos: some argue that a
cold winter proves there is no climate change

Cullen: but this has actually
been a really warm year

Stephanopoulos: I've heard climate
change can make winters worse

Cullen: that's right – it exacerbates
droughts and blizzards

Stephanopoulos: Governor you believe
the climate is in God's hands

McCrory: there's no global warming
because it snowed in Charlotte

Stephanopoulos: right

McCrory: instead of limiting carbon 
emissions we need to clean up 
brownfields to build new skyscrapers

Garcetti: we're Americans! We can adapt!

Cullen: we need to clean up both
the ground and the air

Jarvis: Levi Strauss and Gucci 
are using less water

Stephanopoulos: that's fabulous

Stephanopoulos: what's the most
important thing we can do?

Cullen: treat our water with great care –
we're running out of time

[ break ]

Klein: wow the tea party says paying
debts is surrender, Chris Christie is back
and so is Monica Lewinsky!

Stephanopoulos: panel what 
happened this week?

Vanden Heuvel: the GOP learned their
lesson from the shutdown except
for Ted Cruz who is delusional

Noonan: Obama tried to get the GOP
to act crazy but the GOP didn't take
the bait except for Ted Cruz who is a wacko

Karl: the White House has won
the war on the debt ceiling –
the fever is broken

Stephanopoulos: but not many Republicans
supported paying the nation's bills

Karl: Cruz forced Republicans to
make tough votes for no reason

Stephanopoulos: wow

Karl: he is so hated among 
Republicans he will need a food 
taster in the Senate cafeteria

Stephanopoulos: ha ha ha

Karl: I'm not kidding

Vanden Heuvel: the whole debt ceiling
crisis is fake – they always raised it
when Bush was President

Stephanopoulos: millions are 
enrolling in Obamacare

Noonan: those numbers are lies!!

Stephanopoulos: really?

Noonan: the real story are the
anecdotes I hear on Fox News

Vanden Heuvel: this is a good law –
it gets of pre-existing conditions

Noonan: Republicans demanded Obama
change the law and now he's doing it
through executive fiat which is outrageous

Vanden Heuvel: what is the 
GOP health care plan?

Noonan: repeal Obamacare!

Menendez: people always sign
up at the last minute

Vanden Heuvel: what about the
minimum wage or immigration reform?

[ break ]

Stephanopoulos: Syria is apocalyptic

Karl: sure but what to do – 
airstrikes or aiding al-qaeda?

Stephanopoulos: those are not good options

Karl: no it's your basic nightmare

Noonan: there's nothing we can
do except help refugees

Menendez: Assad still isn't going anywhere

Vanden Heuvel: John McCain is delusional
if thinks more weapons are the answer
