Is it a glimmer of hope, or more rhetoric as the deadline for possible government default gets closer?
After weeks of near silence without any hint of a potential compromise between the Obama administration and congressional Republicans over raising the nations debt ceiling, the White House may be offering some conciliatory language that could help lead to a deal to prevent a potential default on October 17.
As recently as Friday, White House officials declined to specify any demand for the length of a deal to increase the nations debt ceiling.
Then on Monday, a White House official said it was up to Congress to decide how long the debt ceiling increase should last.

Lies! Lies! Lies! There will be no default. We have enough tax revenue to cover interest payments on the debt.
BHO2 is a liar. Don’t trust him! Let him suffer politically.
Kill Obamugabe’s Death Panels. That is where we begin.
Not the call of Spitehouse. This is the House’s baby, 0 wants to kidnap it.
The proposal is just a head fake by Obama and Harry Reid. The Dems want a “clean bill” which amounts to an unconditional surrender by Republicans on the issues of ObamaCare and the out of control debt and spending. Obama says he will negotiate after the Republicans cave and grovel, but he won’t.
Sorry, Obama. We want Obamacare done away with, and we will not be stopped.
i honestly do not believe them. they say something, but they always do the opposite. just don’t believe it, it’s all just acting so the media can report obama’s open to negotiation, and he of course isn’t unless it’s total surrender first. same as it’s always been.
0bamaDontCare is cash-4-klunkers on ‘roids
How about a short term, temporary increase.Reverts back to todays level
I hope the House refuses to raise the debt ceiling by one dime.
There is no reason to increase the limit on Obama’s credit card.Lets pay off the debt we already have.
Hold the Phones, folks, we have a winner.
It’s a trap. No compromise.
They have to say they’d maybe consider...they’re under pressure, loosing public support and they know it... this little ploy is like a pressure cooker letting off some steam....and that’s all it is.
They know if they even indicate something could occur then everyone will step back ....that’s all this is...they want some breathing room and should not be given it!
Zero’s petulant `I won’t negotiate.” wasn’t playing well so they’re changing sheet music is all.
Only total surrender will suffice. Total.
Dictators don’t deal, they dictate.
Just follow that acronym: WAIT
Why Am I Talking?
Don’t just do something, stand there!
