CNBC held an online poll after yesterday morning’s angry, but effective, rant by market guy Rick Santelli. The picture above is pretty much the tally for the votes submitted. Keep in mind, CNBC is not the most conservative cable channel on TV.
The facts remain … In his first month Obama has managed to spend more in less time than any other president. Every time he or his Treasury Sec. Tim Geitner open their mouths the markets go down deeper and deeper into the red.
So, yesterday’s financial venting by CNBC’s Rick Santelli seemed to give a major lift to those who heard it … and strongly agree with it:
Rick Santelli Fires A Shot Across The Bow Yesterday
Rick Santelli’s Shout Heard ‘Round the World
CNBC’s Rick Santelli called for a “Chicago Tea Party” Thursday, leading the charge for calls to revolt against the Obama Administration’s mortgage bailout plan (see video below).
The clip has gone viral on the Internet, bringing with it loads of opinions, both pro and con.
You can share yours here.
And CNBC.com’s The Heat is back for the occasion, asking “Should America Join Santelli’s Tea Party?”
Santelli was back in action Friday (watch the video), and even the White House mentioned him directly in response to questions about the bailout â€” not once, not twice, but NINE times … and even invited Rick to the White House for coffee. Not tea, mind you.
Obama’s Waterboy responds to Santelli buy implying a man experienced in the market and the economy doesn’t know anything …
Rick Santelli reloads and fires again today on CNBC … and this time he has back-up:
So, just yesterday I heard a democrat talking head praising Obama, in spite of the growing anger over his economic policies and spending, touting his poll approval numbers as being “60%” … However, as stated here from Pat his approval is slipping away.
Hmmmm, gotta give it to Rick Santelli for his 93% …
Anyhow, wet-legged Chris Matthews has to get his stubby pecker in this cockfight to champion his imaginary lover Obama:
So, now your opinion and YOU are disqualified from the debate/conversation if you voted for McCain, and NOT Obama?
Would THAT not disqualify every damn insult and opposition Pres. Bush got for the Iraq war and everything he did during his administration, Chrissy?
