From the Video: Rick Santelli reacts to President Obamas blame game when it comes to the downgrade of the United States of Americas credit rating. Santelli says that if it wasnt for the tea party movement, Americas credit would have been downgraded to BBB.
He also responds to the argument that we have a revenue problem by comparing it to if his wife spending 30% more money then telling him to get 2 more jobs. Hat Tip Ed
He and Michelle C-C are the only reasons I stop by CNBC.
Rick Sentilli for Treasury Sec. Loved the guys cheering in the background.
Pray for America
anybody who claims that the Tea party was responsible for the downgrade has been listening to too much Chris Mathews and Lawrence O’Donnell. We were trying to prevent this. The democrats did everything in their power to prevent us from making any meaningful spending cuts and that is why we were downgraded. We are the only sane ones in D.C.
Dude, can we give it a rest already?
Good for Rick.
Now we have a great response/leveler to smack liberals when they blame the Tea Party.
If it wasn’t for the Tea Party our bond rating would be BBB.
This was good, but our side is not making the argument very well. It's this simple, the only reason there were ANY cuts in the debt ceiling increase was because of the Tea Party and conservative Republicans. Hussein asked for a CLEAN debt ceiling increase as late as April. The ONLY reason he started agitating for some grand bargain (without putting out a plan) was because he'd already lost the debate AND he likely knew S&P was going to downgrade us. So he put himself on record as being for a grand bargain, but never actually proposed anything. Again, the point is, there would have been NO spending cuts in the debt ceiling increase were it not for the Tea Party and conservative Republicans.
I like what was said tonight on FOX News:
Blaming the Tea Party for the downgrade is like blaming someone who calls 911 to report a fire.
Simple and concise.
