    Rick Santelli, the CNBC analyst whose glorious rant led to the creation of the Tea Party movement, created another memorable TV moment today. On Meet the Press, reacting to reports that the Russians were happy on Election Night because Trump won, Santelli said to Andre Mitchell: “on Election Night, I never saw you so unhappy. You pick sides. Everybody picks sides.” An indignant Mitchell, protecting her [illusory] reputation for objectivity, shot back: “That’s not true, Rick. That’s just not true.” Sure, Andrea.

    RICK SANTELLI: We all know that after Friday's jobs report, we know the economy is doing better. What we can't predict is will it be in a straight line, a nice even glide path? Will it be a 25-degree upward glide path, 30-degree, 45-degree or continue to be somewhat bumpy as some of the strength we observed in 2011, with GDP later to be followed by weakness? I can't answer that but what I can answer is that governments can't keep spending like it's 1999. Now, comments made before his first cabinet meeting for 2014, President Obama said the following,...

    The American public is "just too darn stupid to get it." That is the message that CNBC's Rick Santelli hears from the mainstream media when discussing polls that suggest US citizens are against a rise in the debt ceiling. Perhaps, as he exclaims, "we should only poll the Harvard and Princeton professors," since they have such a good grasp of reality. But, it is the "giant leap of faith" that the Fed can really move unemployment and keep the economy humming along to support the level of equities that has the Chicagoan irate. Congress - listen up - he explodes,...

    When discussing the Federal Reserve's plans to taper asset purchases and the central bank's inflation targets, CNBC's Rick Santelli questioned whether the government's approach to inflation is a way to "fudge the numbers." "Listen, I don't believe the government's calculations. There, I said it," Santelli said. "I don't have better numbers, I have common sense." "There's a difference between real life and the government," he added.

    ou might remember that in July of 2011, when fighting over the debt ceiling, president Obama- right before he left for his 17th vacation at Martha’s Vineyard that year- complained about congressional inaction by saying that’s it time for the country “to eat its peas.” From CBSNews:"I've been hearing from my Republican friends for some time it is a moral imperative to tackle our debt and deficits in a serious way," Mr. Obama said. "What I've said to them is, let's go."The president said today he would not accept a smaller, short-term deal. "We might as well do it now," he said....

    Confounded Interest ^ | 12/24/2012 | Anthony B. Sanders
    One of my favorite commentators on television is CNBC’s Rick Santelli. And today, he made a great point: when the Senate wanted to pass Obamacare, they met on Christmas eve, 2009. Somehow, the fiscal cliff isn’t that important to the Senate or House this time around. We know that President Obama is perfectly happy to let tax rates automatically increase on everyone (or at least those households earning $250,000 has above). And payroll taxes rise 2% regardless of the fiscal cliff or not. Then there are the 10+ Obamacare taxe, mostly hitting the top 2% of earners. But President Obama...

    On this morning’s edition of CNBC’s Squawk Box, reporters Rick Santelli and Steve Liesman got into an epic shouting match over the former’s suggestion that the recent 7.8% unemployment figure may have been an intentional election-year manipulation by the administration. Host Joe Kernen interrupted Liesman’s rant disputing the anti-BLS charges to give Santelli a shot, saying he was “tired of listening to you,” which prompted Liesman to angrily say: “That’s pleasant. That’s good stuff, Joe.” Santelli ranted about the poor state of the economy, despite the decrease in unemployment, and then added that he had predicted months ago that the...

Speaking on CNBC's Squawk Box this morning just minutes after the number was announced, Santelli said: "I told you they'd get it under 8%--they did!" View the video here.
  • Santelli on GDP Numbers: 'Depressingly Weak'

    09/27/2012 9:35:02 AM PDT · by Free ThinkerNY · 4 replies ^ | Sept. 27, 2012 | DANIEL HALPER
    This morning, Rick Santelli said the revised GDP numbers are "depressingly weak": CNBC reports on the numbers: New durable goods orders in August fell by the most since the recession and a separate reading on the broader U.S. economy came in much weaker than expected. But weekly jobless claims sank to a two-month low, in a hopeful sign for the labor market. New orders for long-lasting U.S. manufactured goods in August fell by the most in 3 1/2 years, pointing to a sharp slowdown in factory activity even as a gauge of planned business spending rebounded. The Commerce Department said...

  • Rick Santelli Blasts Liberal Media’s “Ostrich Economics” (Video)

    Gateway Pundit ^ | May 4, 2012 | Jim Hoft
    Rick Santelli blasted the liberal media’s reporting on today’s dismal unemployment numbers. The CNBC star ridiculed the “Ostrich Economics” being pushed by the Obama-media. Here’s Santelli on the latest unemployment data. There are some highlights I’d really like to hit. The first one is that about 41.3% of unemployed have been unemployed for 39.1 weeks. That is huge and pretty much says it all. This is the weakest recovery since the Great Depression. A whole 4/5ths of the drop of the unemployment rate is due to a drop in the labor force participation. It is the lowest since 1981. Many...

    CNBC's Rick Santelli: "If I broke my right arm, am I going to pick a fight with the neighbor? No. If I'm two months behind on my mortgage, am I going to go complain to the bank? Probably not. But let's see, with gasoline approaching $5 a gallon, isn't this just a supreme time to pick a war with the energy people that are bringing us what already seems to be in the market's eyes in short supply? Just like picking fights with China when the world's about ready to go into recession. There's a time and a place for...

    Four years ago, unsatisfied with the South Park-style choices for president — Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney or John McCain — conservatives looked to the 49th State and began clamoring for Sarah Palin for President. From Glenn Reynolds on December 12, 2007: “THE SARAH PALIN JUGGERNAUT is gathering steam!” (That link alas died in the great re-formatting of 2009.) She failed for a number of reasons, not the least of which was her failure to prepare for big-time interviews and the icy reception by Cindy McCain and John McCain’s staff. This time out, there is no Rudy Giuliani or John McCain,...
