George Will: Refusal to Negotiate on Debt Limit Is ‘Untenable’


Conservative columnist George Will, who made his Fox News debut on Sunday, blasted President Obama’s refusal to negotiate with Republicans over the debt limit.

Asked by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace if the president could stick to that position, Will replied: “Here’s the position he would be sticking to: Default would be catastrophic — world-wide depression, political chaos, locusts, plagues, et cetera. But attach to the debt-ceiling construction of the Keystone pipeline, it’s better to have locusts, plagues, crisis, and war. It’s an untenable position.”
