By The Right Scoop


Santelli slams the Obama administration for playing the blame game over the downgrade to our credit rating, noting that even if you think it’s a bad call, you don’t beat up the other coach or take the umpire out behind the barn. And he also points out that without Tea Party, we would’ve had a clean debt ceiling increase and our credit rating would have likely been dropped even lower to BBB.

Listen to the end to hear his great analogy why we have a spending problem:

                You need to be sorry you’re defending what’s killing America, you idiot, what the left is doing won’t spare you either.
                Can’t you see what is happening? Your vile democrats have been in since 2006!
                How stupid do you want to be? If you’re going for the heights of stupidity, you’re on the right path.
                America kept her AAA rating even thru the great depression, put the democrats in charge and she looses it for the first time…ever!

      I think a beaver just gnawed through a cable or something. It’ll be alright just as soon as they catch that wascally wittle weedwacker, spank his little bottom and patch the cable. At which time they’ll no doubt post him as a sentinal to guard the very cable he done gnawed through.

      Ok, it’s Obama’s fault. He’s a commie.

    Hah!
    Gotta love Santelli.
    The best voice of reason on CNBC.

    The problem is….we don’t have a ‘good coach’ like Santelli is suggesting.
    We are stuck with Obama until we can drag him out of the White House kicking and screaming.

    Was that Joe Kernan who yelled “Yeah!” to what Santelli was saying?
    If so…then there is hope for him yet.

        Guess you have liberal amnesia. The republicans are not the ones that waited until the last minute. On July 19th, Congress passed the Cut, Cap, and Balance. On the 22nd, the democrats tabled the bill, not having the decency to even try to negotiate a deal that could have stopped the downgrade. I assume you have liberal amnesia because no one could be that ignorant.

    There is no reasoning with idiots who cannot comprehend that credit expansion is just a wider and deeper chasm of debt servitude than we currently are trapped in now.

    It makes one wonder if Liberals know the meaning of sanity.

    Santelli is the man! The Truth! I wish he could run for something. This is what we need in a leader. A person who is not going to play the political games! Someone who will tell it like it is. This is Santelli. This is the Tea Party. We need a GOP nominee who will do the same. Romney? Pawlenty? Perry? Will they?

    I know who will, but she hasn’t announced and we don’t know if she’ll get in. But I hope the Lady from Wasilla does, because she has the same fire Rick Santelli has about our problems and about taking crap from the Left. We Leaders and we need a Leader for the people in the White House. 2012 can’t come soon enough!

    I just paid $ 23.86 for an iPhone and my girlfriend loves her Dell laptop that we got for $ 38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 42 inch LED TV to my boss for $ 665 which only cost me $ 62,81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, GrabPenny.com

    It’s an indication of the desperation of the Left and the fear of the Right (yes, me too) that people have to shout over their “interviewers”.

    The Left is afraid to let the Right be heard. The intensity of the situation is rapidly escalating, with cause.

    Economic collapse, and ensuing social collapse, is what obama has been working for. Our situation now has a high potential for immediate catastrophe. And you can bet that obama et al will not stop here. Watch for some more destructive moves soon. obama is giving 100% in his attempt to push us over the cliff.

    Where’s the teams manager, anyway? Isn’t that who’s supposed to say, “Crying, there’s no crying in baseball!” The coach in chief is too busy. All of the commentary coming from the left today is all crying, everyone’s fault but their own. Santelli hits it on the mark, it could have been much worse if not for the tea totin’ party!

    S & P are a bunch of idiots to say we need “revenue” (read tax hikes). But even idiots know we’re on the wrong track and even idiots know that our AAA rating is in jeopardy. That’s why even an idiot would downgrade us to AA+.
