Mika Brzezinski: Ted Cruz Doesn't Love This Country


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 it’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 don’t love the country, and that’s what’s scary about this.


BRZEZINSKI: If they actually go through with this.

SCARBOROUGH: They love, are you saying they don’t love the country?

BRZEZINSKI: Uh, are you saying they do?

SCARBOROUGH: Yes, of course I’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 even…

BRZEZINSKI: We disagree.

SCARBOROUGH: …the craziest left-wing lunatic didn’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 it’s devastating. I think he believes like I believe…

BRZEZINSKI: He’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 that’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.
