Comments on: CNBC=Cranky Nasty Business Correspondent http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/05/05/cnbccranky-nasty-business-correspondent/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Geoff Stuart http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/05/05/cnbccranky-nasty-business-correspondent/#comment-358986 Thu, 21 May 2009 15:34:51 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=16592#comment-358986 I’m a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, but when Rick comes on in the morning from the pits, I hush everybody. He speaks real wisdom and in a very entertaining fashion. Maybe he should tone it down for reasons of self-preservation, but his “emperor-has-no-clothes” attitude is totally on-point. One of the real gems on business b’casting. I hope CNBC realizes that.

Come on people, are we all sheep? Santelli questions government actions and motives, and the media scum that perpetuate the “greater of the good scam”. Should we all click our heels and salute at the Obama temple? Give me a break, Santelli is breath of fresh air.

while liesman appears to be the personal minion of
bernanke and the fed. He only worships their every
move, he dares not stray from their wishes.

People, we have followed too long, its time to ask
questions before that freedom is gone.

Debate is good; debate is healthy. Ratings for some news programs are declining because they present what they think the audience wants to hear instead of presenting the facts and letting the people decide. Rick came up with a good idea – and it actually struck a nerve in society. I don’t care what Rick actually believes, but the success of the “tea party” concept shows that many people do believe that spending is out of control. Lets have the debate, maybe we will all learn something new.

Liesman, on the other hand, is actually one of the smarter guys on CNBC

What we don’t do in this country is talk about solutions. Rick keep it up, you only prove how none of the media heads has any honesty. Fox is a joke. Fox is a trailer park reality show gone bad. Keep the balance CNBC don’t fire someone for standing up to a know it all journalist, even if he is small minded, temperamental conservative boob.

So that money will come back. What is less clear is the stimulus money. The stimulus money are giveaways, not loans. They won’t be paid back directly. It remains to be seen whether that stimulus package can create 2 million jobs or not. That’s more worrisome than bailout money; because we know bailouts will be returned someday.

He has become very offensive. His smile reminds me of dracula

He knows what’s going on. He knows we’re ALL being taken for a ride by the Golden Slacks Elite who’ve infiltrated Key Positions of gov’t and basically CREATED this entire episode of FEAR MONGERING in order to extort TRILLION$$ from the US Taxpayers and foreign investors.

Paulson FLOODED the market with Credit Default Swaps while at Goldman and then made Billion$, probably TRILLION$$, as the US Banking System ground to a halt. Then he and Geithner cut BACK ROOM DEALS to further line the pockets of their Wall St cronies…All at the expense of the avg working person who thought their jobs and retirement savings were SAFE!

Don’t think for a second that this is over…Obama has a HUGE DESIRE TO SOCIALIZE THE US ECONOMY, which he’s made great progress on in only 100 days. As long as Goldman Elite and Obama’s Machine are running (RUINING) this country, you can forget the Good Ol US of A that we all know and LOVE…It’s effectively D-E-A-D. Incentives to prosper will be removed to make way for Central Gov’t Planning.

There is no desire by Obama’s team to “resolve” this financial crisis. Extending it indefinitely allows them to get EVERYTHING THEY WANT from a beat-down US population that’s starving and living in tent cities. Time will tell exactly who we elected, since most people who voted for him know very little about him. Get ready for an Obama Nation of Desolation…
