WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF BILL DALEY TRANSCRIPT (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) AMANPOUR: This week, the starkest evidence yet of a stalling economy. OBAMA: Our economy as a whole just is not producing nearly enough jobs. AMANPOUR: A series of setbacks. First Friday's dismal jobs report, and last night another blow as House Speaker John Boehner pulls the grand bargain to debt reform off the table. A stormy launch to today's high-stakes negotiations at the White House. REP. JOHN A. BOEHNER, R-OHIO: We are this far apart. AMANPOUR: Our headliner in a "This Week" exclusive, the president's chief of staff, Bill Daley, takes us inside the tense talks to keep America from defaulting on its debts for the first time in history. And our roundtable tackles the high-stakes politics at play. Then the new IMF head Christine Lagarde on the grave risk posed by a U.S. default, and Dominique Strauss-Kahn's spectacular fall from grace. Plus the shocking scandal shaking Britain and threatening Rupert Murdoch's media empire.
