Gibbs Fires Back At CNBC's Santelli

Responding to CNBC's Rick Santelli's "cable rant," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said he "doesn't know what he's talking about." Full response (via TV Newser):

GIBBS: I've watched Mr. Santelli on cable the past 24 hours or so. I'm not entirely sure where Mr. Santelli lives or in what house he lives. But the American people are struggling every day to meet their mortgage, stay in their jobs, pay their bills, send their kids to school, hope they don't get sick or somebody they care for gets sick and sends them into bankruptcy. I would be more than happy to have him come here and read the plan]. I'd be happy to buy him a cup of coffee. Decaf.

But I also think it's tremendously important that for people who rant on cable television to be responsible and understand what it is they're talking about. I feel assured that Mr. Santelli doesn't know what he's talking about.
