(Studio: John King) Earlier discussion held with former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer† and CNN's Gloria Borger and Cornell Belcher about President Obama's pushing of a debt ceiling deal that is resisted by some Democrats and conservative Republicans. [BORGER - says everybody is nervous and there is no deal until there is a deal and President Obama has to get support from Democrats.] [FLEISCHER - says the new element is "the trigger," a mandatory incentive to put Congress against the wall because of the Tea Party; outlines what needs to be done now and later.] [BELCHER - says the president will have to bring Democrats along in a deal with balance while the conservative Republicans are entrenched; states this is a crisis started by the Tea Party: that we don't need trick mechanisms.]
King, John
