Although President Barack Obama has said that negotiating over the debt ceiling would be unprecedented, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace isn’t buying it.
“The White House keeps saying, the president says this has never happened before, we’ve never had a negotiation on the debt limit,” Wallace told POLITICO for this week’s “Turn the Table” series. “That’s bull. It just isn’t true.”
“They’ve had negotiations over the debt limit sometimes on related budget issues, sometimes on completely unrelated issues for years.”
CNN’s Candy Crowley told POLITICO that she doesn’t expect the shutdown to end anytime soon.
“When you look at the dynamics of what’s going on inside the Republican caucus, I don’t think they’re there yet and ready to give anything up. And if you go out and listen to the public words of Sen. Reid and the president, there’s no give there either.”
