We all knew he was lying. It was clear from the full context of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs’ quote which Rick tried to use to say he was being threatened by the Obama administration after his rant against the stimulus bill on CNBC. Funny thing is now he is backing way off the claims that he was threatened. Matt Lauer puts the heat on Santelli and he folds like a cheap tent:

Around 3:00 in the above video Santelli claims “I’m not saying threatening…”

Yet to G. Gordon Liddy he clearly said threatening:

SANTELLI: He started that press conference saying, ?I don?t know where he lives, I don?t know where his house is.? This is the Press Secretary of the White House. Is that the kind of thing we want? Is that ?

LIDDY: It?s a veiled threat.

SANTELLI: It really is. [?] I don?t really want to be a spokesman, but I really am very proud of a) the response I?m getting, which is overwhelmingly positive, and b) discourse, that is debate. That if the pressure and the heat I?m taking from the White House ? the fact my kids are nervous to go to school ? I can take that, okay.

Liar. Plain and simple. Got caught. You can’t get away with this kind of crap anymore Ricky. Wise up.

    Mebbe Santelli’s not as nuts as you think. Witting or unwiting tool of the syetem? Perhaps, but no more or less so than Markos or Arianna or Free Republic or Rush.

    For example…history grinds all before it..

    ?The resources I’ve linked below are by credible people – professionals, educators, journalists, policy makers, businessmen and nationally and internationally recognized experts. For example, Joseph M. Miller retired as?a board member of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. One of his associates is?a physicist who worked for Control Data Corporation. The other, Marion?Butler, has a background as a CFO. Niall Ferguson holds a Chair
    in the?history department at Harvard.

    ?There’s an article by Israeli historian Martin van Creveld. Dr. Krassimir Petrov is from Prince Sultan University, Saudi Arabia. Pranab Bardhan is a professor of economics at Berkley. David Rosenberg is Merril Lynch’s North American Economist. Carmen M. Reinhart is a professor of economics at the University of Maryland. Phil Howison is from Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand. Professor Michael T. Klare’s article is also included.

    ?Most of the other resources were
    prepared by people with similar
    backgrounds. Individually, and as a
    group, their work appears to lead to
    the same general conclusion: Life as we’ve always known it is just about over.
