Rick Santelli Goes Off!… “The Fed Doesn’t Have a Clue, Either Does the President, or Congress!”

CNBC’s Rick Santelli was in rare form today. The on-air editor blasted the Fed, President Obama, Timothy Geithner and Congress over the fiscal cliff fiasco.

During a discussion on the so-called fiscal cliff on Thursday, Santelli grew louder, eventually shouting into the camera and overpowering CNBC contributor and trader Jim Iuorio, who was attempting to hold back laughter.

I am amazed that Santelli is on planet MSNBC. Did’nt one of his rants inspire the Tea Party movement?

“The Fed doesn’t have a clue, neither does the president, neither does Congress … Neither does Tim Geithner, who gives a speech about the debt ceiling..."

I contend that they all know exactly what they are doing.

...Santelli probably shouldn’t have voted for Obama or his liberal horde...

What makes you think he voted for Obama? I doubt it.

Give them time. So far Breitbart's the only one they've had to um..dispose of.

Yes. It was Santelli.

The WH went after him at least once.

Apparently, 0bama threatened Santelli’s wife and kids. See thinkprogress.org

(How can that organization be a dot o r g?)

the way the democrats figure it is that maybe tax increases will shave a percent or two off of growth. but so what? there’s enough growth in store to keep the economy just above stall speed. And if the economy does stall—well its the republicans fault.

This is what the election was all about. the republicans were going to close the deficit by cutting spending and raising growth. the democrats were going to close the deficit by raising taxes and cutting spending with the fiscal cliff. We got the dems plan.

So will have minimal growth but a government without a big deficit.

You are right. The FED was designed to give a small group of people control over our money and our Nation.

Yes it did, it was a great moment. I think catching one of Rick’s rants is the only thing that helps CNBC ratings.

Santelli is on Cnbc not MSnbc. Cnbc is economic news, not the rant of the ultra-leftist ed, chrissie, madcow and their ilk. (Sorry about offending those who are ilk by comparing ed etc to you)

I agree.

Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat

Debt is the vehicle used by socialists to bring about totalitarianism (Obamacare).

Watch money. Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed. - Rand

The socialists/totalitarians are finding new ways to loot constantly. DEFUND their parasitic collectives.

Plunder & death...socialism & totalitarianism

I like Rick better than most.

Love to see someone getting bothered by the MOOTA game. Hope he knows what must be done or at least can speak intelligently about it.

MOOTA (Money-Out-Of-Thin-Air)

Prediction: debt will be the primary weapon which destroys USA.
Hope: USA will cancel Fed, MOOTA and limit USG spending. USG spending should be done in stages or the economy may die.

Yes. Santelli is kind of the Sam Adams of the 21st century. Or maybe the Tom Paine.

No we will have minimal to no growth WITH a big deficit. The dems have no intention of reducing spending and tax increases will not cover the spending.
