Nice to have a good White House Press Secretary
I didn't cover the tirade by CNBC's Rick Santelli. Suffice to say, he is a bit over-caffeinated in his self-denial rant on how the collapse is all the homeowner's fault.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs addressed the briefing room today regarding Mr. Santelli's rant. It is a nice takedown and also a good example of how education and knowledge now has a place in the White House today. No more belittling reading or expert knowledge, instead we have policy based on facts, research and thought. I have to admit I am pretty happy about this change. By the way, watch the above video to its conclusion, it is more fun that way.
