'This Week' Transcript: Saif al-Islam and Saadi Gadhafi


HALEY: I'm proud of those congressional Republicans for making those cuts. We have a leader of this country that has got to make some decisions. The people have spoken. No, I don't think government should shut down, but it's up to the president to go and negotiate with the Republicans, not for the Republicans to go and negotiate with the president. They are doing what the people asked. This last election said, less dollars, no deficits. Let's start living within our means. I think those Republican congressmen did that. I think the president needs to respond.

TAPPER: Very quickly, Governor.

PATRICK: I think it took 10 years to grow this deficit. A lot of those folks who are saying shut the government down didn't have a word to say when the deficits were being run up through the roof by President Obama's predecessor. I think the president has shown he will and can work with Republicans, but when he reaches out a hand, they need to not slap it, they need to reach back and act like the adults we sent and we expect in that building over there.

TAPPER: All right. I'm afraid that's all the time we have. When we return, Christiane Amanpour has more live from Libya. Stay with us.


AMANPOUR: Hello again from Tripoli. You just heard Joe Walsh of Chicago talk about the battle over big ideas and revolution in the air in the United States. Well, the same is most definitely true here in Libya and in the rest of this region. And we're covering it all. So stay with us, watch for breaking news, including how long the Gadhafis hold out here in Tripoli. ABCnews.com, and ABC News will be following this, and you can follow me on Twitter and FaceBook.
