RICHARD HAASS, COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS: With one exception: which is President Obama at the end of the day is responsible for the country and the economy. So he could quote unquote win, but it would be a Pyrrhic victory. So itâ€™s a game of chicken that really neither side wants to go off the edge here.
BRZEZINSKI: That shows how much they hate him and donâ€™t love the country, and thatâ€™s whatâ€™s scary about this.
BRZEZINSKI: If they actually go through with this.
SCARBOROUGH: They love, are you saying they donâ€™t love the country?
BRZEZINSKI: Uh, are you saying they do?
SCARBOROUGH: Yes, of course Iâ€™m saying they do.
BRZEZINSKI: Ted Cruz and his group loves the country?
SCARBOROUGH: Yes they love the country. I have never once suggested that evenâ€¦
BRZEZINSKI: We disagree.
SCARBOROUGH: â€¦the craziest left-wing lunatic didnâ€™t love their country.
BRZEZINSKI: I think he loves his prospects to develop a database more than he loves the country.
SCARBOROUGH: I think Ted Cruz believes that ObamaCare is dangerous. I think he believes itâ€™s devastating. I think he believes like I believeâ€¦
BRZEZINSKI: Heâ€™s allowed to believe that.
SCARBOROUGH: Right. And I think that he is willing to take extreme measures to stop it from happening.
BRZEZINSKI: But thatâ€™s bad for the country.
SCARBOROUGH: Hold on one second. But you suggested that some people might not love this country.
BRZEZINSKI: I am suggesting that.
SCARBOROUGH: People love this country, but they believe we get to the best outcome in completely different ways.
BRZEZINSKI: You know what? Nobody has ever done this before.
