John Kerry (U.S. Sec. of State)
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL)
Stephanopoulos: OMG Russia
invaded Ukraine! it's another cold war!
Stephanopoulos: Russia has
taken over Crimean navy bases
Audience: oh noe not crimea
Marquardt: Russia has demanded
Ukraine surrender Navy bases
Stephanopoulos: it's so fucking
on right now
Marquardt: the UN Security Council
is meeting in an emergency session
but Putin says he is defending
Russians in Ukraine
Marquardt: pro-Russia activists
are beating people up
Stephanopoulos: this is clearly
a challenge to America
Moran: Putin hosted the Olympics to
show off a new open Russia then
he invaded Crimea
Stephanopoulos: so that's a change then
Moran: in 2008 he invaded Georgia
to defend Russians there and
now he's doing it again
Stephanopoulos: it's a pattern then
Moran: Ukraine is divided –
some want to be part of Europe
and some want to be a Russian satellite
Obama: there will be costs to military intervention
McCain: Obama has been naive with regard to Putin
Moran: to be fair George Bush said
he looked into Putin's soul and found
a good man and then Putin invaded Georgia
Stephanopoulos: Secretary Kerry –
is this a disaster?
Kerry: we hope not
Stephanopoulos: that's it?
Kerry: this is an act of aggression
against another country!
Stephanopoulos: we can't have that
Kerry: it's a 19th century act
Stephanopoulos: so what's penalty?
Kerry: Obama told Putin we don't
want war but he shouldn't invade
Stephanopoulos: so how did that go?
Kerry: if Putin is really concerned
about the safety of Russian speakers
in Ukraine then he can file a complaint
with the appropriate authorities
Stephanopoulos: would the US
Stephanopoulos: what else?
Kerry: we will call on Congress
to lay down with us
Kerry: also NATO will weigh in heavily
Stephanopoulos: what about economic
sanctions on Russia?
Kerry: damn right – we are
deadly serious about this
Stephanopoulos: you sound mad
Kerry: right – you can't just invade
another country in the 21st century
Stephanopoulos: but the invasion
has already happened
Kerry: we think Putin should
roll that back
Stephanopoulos: will the US use
military force to defend Ukraine
like George Bush pretended to?
Kerry: we are prepared to work
with Russia – they should be allowed
to keep their naval bases in Crimea
Stephanopoulos: do you have any
indication that Putin is backing down
under America's manly masculinity?
Kerry: Stephy this is not Russia vs the USA
Stephanopoulos: it's not?
Kerry: no it's about the brave
Ukrainians dodging sniper bullets
Stephanopoulos: good luck with that
Kerry: does Putin really want
to be globally isolated just
because he lost his buddy?
Stephanopoulos: would the US skip
the G8 summit in Sochi this summer?
Kerry: you bet
Kerry: look we've worked with
Russia on other things but
this is too much
[ break ]
Stephanopoulos: Martha what's
really being considered?
Raddatz: Putin is good at judo and chess
– he knew the west would do nothing
if he invaded Crimea
Raddatz: he already got his Olympics
– so he got what he wanted
[ break ]
Stephanopoulos: what will Congress do?
Kinzinger: we must be strong!
Stephanopoulos: I see
Kinzinger: we can respond militarily
but we should put Georgia in NATO
so we can threaten Russia with war
and mean it
Stephanopoulos: I like it
Reporter: Corporate America
told Arizona to stop hating gays
Reporter: then a Texas judge
struck down bans on marriage
Stephanopoulos: Cokie it seems like
the culture is changing on the gays
Roberts: businesses were
freaking out over the hate
Lowry: this was a great law –
it just protected religious freedom
like Ted Kennedy wanted
Jones: it was an anti-gay law Richie
Stephanopoulos: I see
Jones: the idea you would say
'we don't serve your kind' is
offensive and outdated
Stephanopoulos: even for the Irish?
Lowry: making someone serve
a gay person coffee is not a burden
but baking a gay person a cake is
Jones: he's an idiot
Lowry: if you refuse to serve
a gay person coffee you're
an idiot but if you refuse to
serve them toast you're a genius
Kinzinger: the NFL threatened to
pull the SuperBowl –
the free market worked!
Stephanopoulos: what about live
and let live – tolerance for intolerance?
Jones: because if your businesses
is open to everyone it should be open to all
Lowry: this is not like Jim Crow
because you always find a gay florist
