I suspect a bait and switch here on the part of the Obama administration.
Obama was quite clear on to -- Where he said he had been demanding up until now you give me a one year extension on the bed or I'm not gonna talk.
Boehner said all I want to do is talk so the president offered -- on our friends in which he said well.
I would accept any length of extension meaning I'll -- just a technical one.
A short one hit a couple of weeks and that offered a compromise so they could start negotiations.
He gets a debt ceiling increase -- he can say well now I can talk.
Boehner is able to engage in negotiations.
With what would be a trivial extension where there -- -- debt ceiling is next week.
-- three weeks is irrelevant and that seemed to be the basis and today Carney.
Reiterated that -- is suffering he was asked with the president's -- short term raising an indefinite.
Even if he doesn't -- get.
IAE and opening up of the government and the answer was yes.
So to Boehner has has offering -- and has seen a president you would expect that you wouldn't have.
Six week extension and discuss all of these issues which seems to have happen is they're now demands from the president.
On the reopening of a government which was not what they had said earlier in the week.
Which is why I think they are stuck now and I think the Republicans ought to stand the fast on this we're offering you six weeks.
What we're offering -- opportunity for real negotiations -- -- the reduction all kinds of other stuff.
Eminently reasonable and I hope they don't bunch on -- Because otherwise it is I think the president contradicting themselves.
