Pierre Thomas
Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA)
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL)

Raddatz: OMG Obama is
going to destroy ISIS

Expert: they are the biggest
threat since 9/11

Obama: I'm going to crush them
like I did bin Laden and Qaddafi
and Mitt what's-his-name

Raddatz: President has built
an international coalition but
will the US invade Syria?

Raddatz: the US is now flying over
Syria just to take a look around
and see what's bomb-worthy

Stephanopoulos: if we bomb ISIS
that helps Assad who is a vicious dictator

Raddatz: yes but Assad is not about
to attack the US homeland

Zeleny: Republicans are unified in
hating Obama but divided on
supporting his bombing ISIS

Cruz: we should bomb ISIS!

Zeleny: in Syria?

Cruz: that's not the point

Zeleny: does Obama need
Congressional approval to bomb Syria?

Cruz: yes!

Rubio: no!

Zeleny: there are division in the GOP
and inside Rand Paul's head

Paul: we should not bomb ISIS!

Paul: we must bomb ISIS!

Jindal: No knows what to do
but Obama is a bad leader

Zeleny: what should Obama say this week?

Cruz: he should name me President

Thomas: the 9/11 anniversary
is coming up soon

Stephanopoulos: didn't we 
do that last year?

Thomas: ISIS isn't the only
threat to America – there's Syria
Yemen and those al-qaeda guys
on jungle gyms

Stephanopoulos: what should 
I be terrified of?

Ray Kelly: it's the threats you don't
see coming you need to worry about

Stephanopoulos: what should
we be scared of today?

King: ISIS but Al-Qaeda wants to
get back in the game and also
home grown threats

Stephanopoulos: of course

King: we can't let our 
guard down for a second!!

Stephanopoulos: some say
ISIS isn't going to destroy
American anytime soon

Smith: true it's more lone wolves

Stephanopoulos: does President have
authority to bomb Syria

King: yes I think he should go
ahead without Congress –
bombing ISIS is too important

Smith: yes the President has the
authority but he should probably
go to Congress since it would pass

Stephanopoulos: what will it take
to defeat ISIS?

King: years and years of bombing
and inserting special forces and
finally training the Iraqi army

Smith: it will take Sunni allies
plain and simple

Stephanopoulos: oh?

Smith: if it's just the U.S. bombing
ISIS it will only strengthen ISIS

Stephanopoulos: oh boy

Avila: wow Obama miffed latinos
when he delayed action on immigration

Latinos: we're frustrated!

Avila: Obama was going to act until
Guatemalan children crossed the
border and ruined everything

Latinos: Stop Deportations

Avila: Obama was worried action
would increase GOP voter turnout

Stephanopoulos: Luis what's your
reaction to Obama not
not-deporting people?

Gutierrez: the White House is
playing it safe but we can't
walk away from our principles

Stephanopoulos: strong stuff

Gutierrez: Latinos put Obama in the
White House and gave him the Senate!

Stephanopoulos: so will Latinos forgive him?

Gutierrez: I'm going to meet with
White House officials this week
and lay down the law

Stephanopoulos: what do you want?

Gutierrez: people who have been
here for years should not be
hunted down and deported 

[ break ] 

Stephanopoulos: what about this
coalition against ISIS?

Karl: Obama is going to speak
this week about bombing but
not attacking Syria

Stephanopoulos: Obama is doing
what GOP wants so how are they
going to stay mad at him?

Kristol: Obama is weak because he
is making speeches about bombing
instead of bombing

Stephanopoulos: he has 
bombed ISIS 100 times

Kristol: he doesn't want to send U.S.
troops to get ISIS – that's not serious

Brazile: Republicans rushed to
invade Iraq without a strategy
and we have to avoid that

Stephanopoulos: Rand Paul
flip-flopped on isolationism

Karl: Paul has been bashing aggressive
foreign policy and now he says Obama
isn't aggressive enough

Bai: voters wants an outsider to
sow chaos in Washington and an
insider to bring stability to the world

Kristol: Republicans like war
and they will always like war
