(Real Clear Politics) -- REP. NANCY PELOSI: I do think, getting back to the gentleman's question, that none of us should be negotiating on the debt ceiling, it should just be lifted. When it comes to the C.R., the president has negotiated. In fact, we met with him six months ago to give him our view, in March, remember that March meeting with the president? And he said, I hear what you're saying, I think you know what my -- how I approach all of this, but I want some months to try to get a bipartisan agreement and obviously that has not come. But this president, this is a president who has been so bipartisan and that is a quality that the American people like.
