Rick Santelli Videos: Sunday & October 2010

Rick Santelli is the CNBC on-air editor from Chicago who is generally credited with sparking the first Tea Party rallies. The second video on that post contains Santelli's original call for the Chicago Tea Party on July 4th of 2009.

Santelli was a guest once more this past Sunday on Meet the Press. Here's video from the appearance.

While I'm on the topic of Santelli, here's a clip of him one morning on CNBC. Note his accurate prediction about the current state fiscal crises. Think about his comments on what the election, still to come at this point, would say about voters' attitudes toward government spending.

Since the overwhelming GOP victories, and Wonderboy's bloated 2012 budget, this pre-election video suggests more powerfully how the president has already forgotten the message sent last November.

I'm a little surprised Immelt never had Santelli fired. There was a point at which he was called to New York for some re-education, but he was muted for only a week or so. At this point, his generally high profile may be saving his job. That and Comcast having taken operating control of the network.
