Results Of CNBC’s Poll On Call For “Chicago Tea Party”- With Videos

February 20th, 2009 Posted By MsUnderestimated.


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’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 — 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?

      The arrogance of this administration will be their worst enemy and will wear thin quick.
      When people are stressed over serious matters like putting food on the table and keeping a roof over their heads. Watching a rich politician BS with a shit eating grin on their face is mocking at best. :twisted: :gun:

    2. Dan (San Diego)

      HOT DAMN! 93percent??????? I guess Glen Beck was right…we have THEM surrounded……..Holy shit. I can’t believe that percentage on CNBC! amazing…..obama is fucked

    3. dogwhisperer

      :arrow: Dan (San Diego) 93% trangly Dan, that is about the percentage of people that actually pay their mortgages.
      Wonder which side they fall on?????????????????

    4. Gibbs is a pompous asshole, and I can’t WAIT for a reporter to call him out on it! He’s calling out Santelli for speaking his mind on the market floor? FUCK YOU, Gibbs! You’re a douchebag.

      And I guess for calling you something that can be flushed down the toilet, I should be expecting a visit from the Secret Service like the guy in Oklahoma who had a bumper sticker that said “abort Obama”? Fuck all of you worthless politicians.

    5. Kentucky Jim

      Oil went back down from over 140 a barrel to under 50 and he thinks we are reaping a windfall because of it and will spend all the money we save. Guess what, we did not have the money to buy gas at 140, so now there is not an excess of cash laying around the house from the price drop, we can simply afford gas again.

      How can they be so out of touch? Do they really believe all the propaganda they make up?

    6. Cpl. Munk

      Rick is right. Personally I have been shorting the market and betting the Obama administration would grab hold of the free market and really screw it up. It seemed like a no brainer investment and I’ve done quite well so far. What pisses me off is I don’t like doing it and I’d rather go back to long term growth but that’s dead for now.

    7. Dan (The Infidel)

      Gibbs is an asshat. You got to wonder if he shines his master’s shoes at night. Yessah Massah. NoSah Massah.

      Little boys shouldn’t be doing jobs that require grown-ups to do. Whether that job is POTUS or Press Douchebag.

      Right on Rick. Keep up the pressure on the rookies in the WH and Congress cause the chickens are comming home to roost; especially for the 63 million assclowns that voted for their “teleprompter Jesus”.

    8. MG

      We need more Santelli’s. T-Party, ya baby! Let us ROCK THE WORLD!

    9. aboutTObegin

      DAN - well, I am more than READY to see the fucking this usurper is due… because if this shit keeps going on…we wont have a country to fight over anymore….martial law will be imposed on us in the name of protecting the nation and this will be done by the usurper himself! :mad: :mad: :mad: exactly what he wants so he can re-write the Constitution!

    10. mindy abraham

    11. Bob USMC

      God I swear Mathews wants to get pig-phukked by Obama in the worst way. How pathetic! :gun: :beer:

    12. hooligan-law

      I am going to pin a tea bag to my jacket today !!! I call for all of the dollard nation to do the same !

    13. Never Lftbhndagn (God, Family & Country)

      Here is how you can join the Chicago Tea Party

    14. Steve in NC

      In all seriousness, is it possible to do a grass roots movement where we band together and stop mortgage payments for the next 60 days? Just fucking stop.

    15. Never Lftbhndagn (God, Family & Country)

      Press Secretary Robert Gibbs responding to a reporters question…

      “I’ve watched Mr. Santelli on cable the past 24 hours or so. I’m not entirely sure where Mr. Santelli lives or in what house he lives. But the American people are struggling every day to meet their mortgage, stay in their jobs, pay their bills, send their kids to school, hope they don’t get sick or somebody they care for gets sick and sends them into bankruptcy.

      I would be more than happy to have him come here and read [the mortgage plan]. I’d be happy to buy him a cup of coffee. Decaf. (laughter)

      But I also think it’s tremendously important that for people who rant on cable television to be responsible and understand what it is they’re talking about. I feel assured that Mr. Santelli doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

    16. aboutTObegin

      see now, the USURPER is firing back at the whole Tea Party idea!!!! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    17. American Woman (bitter clinger to my guns and religion)

      Notice Gibbs has done exactly the same thing they have done to
