CNBC's Rick Santelli this morning at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange With tongue only partially in cheek, a CNBC analyst on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange this morning responded to President Obama's proposed $275 billion deficit-financed homeowner bailout plan and other massive spending measures with a call for a new "tea party."
Rick Santelli, in a nearly three-minute rant that drew approving hoots and comments from nearby traders, said the Obama administration's promotion of bad behavior must be causing the founding fathers to roll over in their graves.
"We're thinking of having a Chicago Tea Party in July," Santelli told CNBC "Squawk Box" co-anchor Joe Kernan. "All you capitalists who want to show up at Lake Michigan, I'm going to start organizing."

God bless Rick Santelli! He rocks!
Go Rick Go!.....
This would be a great opportunity for up can coming leaders to take part in and be seen and heard.
I think the push back is getting some leggs!
GREAT IDEA, but go ARMED, for when the Obamunists try to have you arrested for Violations of the CLEAN WATER ACT....
It is time to act—THESE SOCIALIST COWARDS sorry Eric, are trashing this country
Two faced slimy lying hypocrites, they certainly didn’t mind Bush signing that horrendous boondoggle atrocity, saving the Banker Welfare Queens bacon.
And now CNBC, the whore of the Wall Street, is finding principles.
Better the whole crew of CNBC should jump in the water.
Along with the pukey traders. What profiles in courage.
I hope he’s got a good nest egg. Maybe Cavuto can find a spot for him on FBN, ‘cause I have a feeling his time on the National Barack Channel is suddenly limited.
I saw this live and it was something to behold. The hosts of the show tried to divert him but he would have none of it. This is just the tip of the iceburg. There will be others to follow. Pelosi, Reid, and the WHOLE Obama team have already gone too far. It only took about a month!
Someone said on another post print out stimulus bill and throw in the lakes and etc. All over this country. Need to set a date and do it lots and lots of big cities in each state!
“Our leaders and talk show hosts need to organize a coordinated TEA PARTY in every major U.S. city.”
Good idea. Better idea, though, is to have everyone (who can afford to travel) congregate in one place on a large body of water for depositing tea. It would get much more attention than several small events. A true “million person march”.
We love Rick Santelli and sent an email to CNBC to thank him for us before they fire him.
Saw the reports live and love the response from the floor traders around him.
Barry are you paying attention? Or are you too busy talking-down the economy?
“Better idea, though, is to have everyone (who can afford to travel) congregate in one place on a large body of water for depositing tea. It would get much more attention than several small events. A true million person march.
‘Stead of calling it a tea party, it should be called a pork party.
Into the lake with copies of the bill!
I would gladly go to Chicago for this...
“it should be called a pork party.”
GREAT idea! Fill a lake with bacon strips. Might force some of the Muslim sleeper cells in the area to go away at the same time.
gee, I haven’t been to Chicago in a loooooong time. If he does this, we might book a flight soon for the Chicago Tea Party.
