Posted on 07/29/2011 11:07:56 AM PDT by Qbert
White House spokesman Jay Carney said Friday he still believes it is possible to get a debt deal completed to meet the Aug. 2 default deadline.
"We still believe that we can get this done in time to meet the deadline of August 2nd," Carney told reporters, saying there needs to be a compromise agreement to break a partisan stalemate.
Carney reiterated that the White House would consider agreeing to lift the debt ceiling for a few days if needed to finish a deal.

Let the “deadline” come and go and expose the Politics of Panic.
The mask is slipping form the DC Political media machine. The truth is coming out. This is why Progressive Facists in the 0-bot media are in hysteria today
The big DC political machine lie of this whole thing is the GOP needs a bill.
NO, the 0 Democrats need a bill. They are the party of spend. They are the ones who have to go to the voters in 2012 and defend their total mishandling of the economy for the last 4 years.
The GOP candidate in 2012 is going to be running against DC. The 2012 election will be a referendum on 0s Presidency.
Time for people to quit buying the propaganda fed them by the DNC Media-Political machine, the 0 Dems, not the GOP, will be hurt the worst by a failure to strike a deal.
Here what you do GOP, you tell the Senate Sorry but all your Debt bills are D.O.A. CCB was the compromise, if you want a bill, there it is..
Yep. The only pressing “deadline” is the big birthday bash with Jennifer Hudson.
Actually, that is not a bad idea. Obama is on the ropes right now. If August 2nd comes and goes without a whimper Geithner should be driven out of Washington and Obama forced to resign!!!
Put that in the category of an admission the “deadline” wasn’t.
Jennifer Hudson must not be too bright. Girl, take a gander and see how Oprah is a shadow of her former self, most of it due to her swooning over failed POTUS Obama. By the way, Jennifer, POTUS Obama has thrown Black Americans under the bus, just in case you have not noticed!!! You may not know it now, but you have just diminished your career substantially.
It’s really sad to watch Boehner and McConnell scrambling around in a crazed state while Obama (presumably) sits on the sidelines... and yet, after bending over backward for the Dems, Boehner and McConnell still get lower Gallup approval numbers for handling this...
One would think they would learn something once in awhile.
And reaching Any kind of deal with Zero’s marauders is a good idea, Why?
“U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said Friday his budget legislation would increase the nation’s borrowing authority until March 2013 and reiterated that he would not accept a short-term debt limit increase as Republicans are insisting.”
Every stinking election we have to listen to them threaten Police, Firefighters, Teachers, and now This Idiot in Chief has threatened our Military, if we won’t let him borrow our great-great grandkids into slavery.
No Deal, of Any kind. Call their bluff. Force the Rats to Shut, It, DOWN, and then we Keep it shut down, and watch Their Public Employee Union support crumble.
