BLITZER'S BLOG: Obama's chief of staff is confident there will be a deal

Washington (CNN) – White House Chief of Staff William Daley is still optimistic that some sort of deficit crisis deal will be worked out by Tuesday's Treasury-imposed deadline. But he says he's not so certain about the future of America's AAA credit rating.

In an exclusive interview with me at the White House, Daley said, "The four leaders of the Congress have said that the debt ceiling will be extended" and he's "confident that they will come together."

    Trust me.......there will be no deal reached. The sides are too polarized. It will NOT happen.

    He should be confident there will be a deal...the Teahobbbits' idiocy is paradoxically going to force the GOP to make one.

  4. The Greedy Old Pigs have declared class war on US!

    I'm sure the GOBP will be happy with just damaging the US credit rating. They'll turn around shortly thereafter and claim it justifies further cuts in the safety net. The corrupt corporatist cult members are playing a "long game" here. They hated FDR for the New Deal and they see this as their best chance to undo what the rest of us expect and take for granted. Unfortunately, the souless teatard demons care only for the greedy, and not the needy.
