Krauthammer: Obama 'pointed to an exit ramp' over debt ceiling debate

Charles Krauthammer said Tuesday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that President Obama gave House Speaker John Boehner “an exit ramp” to avert economic catastrophe by passing a three-week extension on the debt ceiling.

"He pointed to an exit ramp for the Speaker," the syndicated columnist and Fox News Contributor said. "He [Obama] basically says, while I said  I won't negotiate while the debt ceiling's hanging over us, so you give me a 3 week extension."

His remarks came Obama told reporters at the White House he was "willing to compromise" but not negotiate.
