CNBC's Rick Santelli: ‘If It Wasn’t for the Tea Party We Would Have Been Rated BBB!’

CNBC’s Rick Santelli gives a fiery reaction to Obama and the Democrats’ attempts to blame the U.S. credit downgrade on the Tea Party:

Rick Santelli reacts to President Obama's blame game when it comes to the downgrade of the United States of America's credit rating. Santelli says that if it wasn't for the tea party movement, America's 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.

“Blame the Tea Party? Geez, no wonder Kerry did so well in an election. If it wasn’t for the Tea Party, they would have passed the debt ceiling thumbs up. We would have been rated triple B!”

Wild Thing's comment......

LOL I LOVE Santelli and his passion, he is awesome!

May GOD BLESS RICK SANTELLI!!! He has been a True American Hero!

If this were the days of the American Revolution I bet the liberal Dems would be supporting and feeling sorry for old King George. They would be ranting and blaming the discontents for the sufferings of the war fought to make us free from the bondage of serfdom and taxation. And, after our success they would be faulting the Revolutionary Army and George Washington for having saved this country from tyranny and freeing it for our people, our independence, our growth, and our future.

Obama's agenda is right on schedule. Soon Castro's credit rating will surpass ours. Here, the average Wage has dropped by 3800 dollars in 2 1/2 year Coincidence? I think not.

In Wisconsin and now other places we see race fights and riots of course not being reported. Also I read that North Korea has been removed from the Terrorist Watch list and obama has placed Israel on the list in place of the NORKs.

It the destruction of America IS not obamas agenda then he is the most Ignorant man in the world and should be removed immediately. But then again Congress needs a spine, too.

Santelli, once again, eats a media "expert's" lunch.

They have no concept of the real world, they live in the fantasy land of "what ifs" and "talking points". Santelli lives and works in the "real world". on a daily basis.

It's the old story of someone who has never done your job, telling you how to do it better. These media experts and White House flunkys have no answers. All they can do is resort to talking points and theories which have once again proven wrong.
