It seems like only yesterday, but it was February 2009, as the first trillion dollar Stimulus plan was pending.
It could have been yesterday.
You don’t hear about him anymore. Did the leftist propaganda machine shut him up? As I remember, they excoriated him for that rant, and the “raaaacist” “mobster” TEA Party movement. Meh.
We need someone to take up that call – again. People are fatigued, frustrated. This is the time many want to quit – but we can’t!
Rick Santelli, are you still there?! Or are you stifled by fear merchants?
Funny you should bring up Rick Santelli today. Here’s a clip of his appearance this morning on the Morning Joe show.
If Ezra Klein was smart enough to listen, which he’s not, he’d benefit from the exchange. Santelli was on the mark in Feb ’09 and remains so today.
Good clip. Young Ezra gets schooled by Santelli, who has probably forgoten more about markets and economics than young Ezra will ever know, and yet he still refuses to learn the lesson. He’s a fricking journalist, yet he thinks he knows more about economics than the guy whose spent his career studying the economy? What arrogance.
Well……was I wrong!! I just don’t watch MSNBC. 😉
I just watched this clip (h/t Hot Air) and found out how wrong I was.
I love Santelli more and more all the time. 😀
