This entire Debt Ceiling crisis IS the Republicans fault.
The Republicans fabricated this fake Debt Ceiling crisis out of thin air. There is no requirement for any other talks just to pass an increase in the debt ceiling.
This was an ENTIRELY REPUBLICAN decision to tie non-time critical legislation to the time-critical Debt Ceiling vote.
Obama called on Republicans to pass a clean Debt Ceiling bill. The Republicans UNILATERALLY decided to go to war instead. Somehow you blame Obama for Republicans making the unilateral decision to go to war, instead of passing a clean bill? Seriously?
This fight only exists because Republicans created it on purpose.
