Cheers To You Rick Santelli
From the man who helped bring about the Tea Party Revolution in 2009, CNBC’s Rick Santelli rocks the far-left economic world of Big Government advocate and Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein.
That Ezra Klein sits atop his columnist perch at the Washington Post is itself a shocking rebuke of Darwinian philosophy that only the fittest should survive, for in the game of intellectualism, Klein has proven himself time and time again to encompass similar intellectual depth to that of a parking lot puddle. Yet another example of Klein’s intellectual failings was placed firmly as a matter of record this past week during a brief but powerful exchange between himself and CNBC contributor Rick Santelli.
Klein is heard whining of the need of yet further government/fed intervention in the economy, and how money has been “unfairly” moved around. Klein’s criticism of money moving around as being “unfair” is absurd of course – the kind of economic absurdity that so many liberals continue to cling to despite overwhelming evidence pointing to how their Big Government interventionist policies have only made a bad economic situation far worse. It was government “make it fair” regulation that helped to create the housing bubble. It was government regulation that has massively devalued the American dollar. It is government regulation that now has private industry holding onto its cash as it waits out the looming tax and health care cost uncertainty of the Obama recession.
Santelli, in his own marvelous and to-the-point way, attempts to set Klein right, and while Klein may be both unwilling and incapable of understanding, hopefully America is paying attention…
