CNBC’s Rick Santelli was in rare form today.
The on-air editor blasted the Fed, President Obama, Timothy Geithner and Congress over the fiscal cliff fiasco.
Notice the crowd cheering him on in the background–
The Huffington Post reported:
During a discussion on the so-called fiscal cliff on Thursday, Santelli grew louder, eventually shouting into the camera and overpowering CNBC contributor and trader Jim Iuorio, who was attempting to hold back laughter.
“The Fed doesn’t have a clue, neither does the president, neither does Congress … Neither does Tim Geithner, who gives a speech about the debt ceiling. I’d like to see if he could count to a million, much less 16.4 trillion!” Santelli shouted.
Clearly Santelli, like many Americans, is panicking as the fiscal cliff deadline nears.
