looks like steve surpassed the 10% point with a total of 725 votes. i didn't think he had that many friends/family members who read zero hedge.

rick santelli deserves much better than cnbc.

cnbc main floor voting, Steve is just holding the partly line. GE special propoganidist specialists, give hime a run down twice a week. Do what your told Steve, and your mid range 6 figure income will not be in jeopardy. The only reason Rick is not fired, is because of the huge amount of fan mail he gets. Backlash would be a bitch.

The truth will set you free but liesman shall make you an eternal prisoner of his own devices, in this case the guitar.

Welcome to the Hotel California....





steve is a moron.....I can't think of anything that he's ever added to any discussion on rates/economics that hasn't not been incorrect or at the very least, suspect

Rick has a superb professional reputation, too bad he's mixed up with that CNBC outfit.

I think earlier this week El-Erian of Pimco put it best when he was posed a similar question about the two after their recent on air exchanges.

He said they are both 'half-right'!  Who you think is correct on their analysis is dependent on how you view the world in the context of the strength of the cyclical 'tail-winds' vs. the structural 'head-winds'.

Personally I like both of their analysis although I do think that of the two Rick's journalistic commentaries are seemingly more tarnished by his political leaning toward GOP ... and maybe just maybe and here I am assuming his bearish stance is mainly based on the fact that he wasn't or hasn't been as long as he should have been in the run up we had in equities during the past year.

"Rick's journalistic commentaries are seemingly more tarnished by his political leaning toward GOP" - you may or may not recall, he was completely against the bailouts (not just TARP, but PDCF, TSLF, TALF, CPFF, etc, etc) that were enacted by the GOP. socialist republicans are still socialists, and rick did not give them a free pass.

His name is LIESman.

I trust him to somehow walk the wrong way down a two way street.

All these fake-fights. Thats all staged by cnbc. In the end they are all in the entertainment business.

Steve 10%

Total votes: 3865

LIESman has 386 friends?  Did all those votes come in from CNBC headquarters?

He must have tweeted his call list and offered them  a free latte.

You have to wonder who voted for Liesman.

He reminds me of the school principal who's tires you would slash.

HCSKnight's picture

Old Stevie means well, but he's a classic example of one who regurgitates what they have read in a book or heard from an "expert". Unfortunately for him, neither sources have served him well.

Honestly, it's embarrasing to watch him.

What was more interesting this AM, Becky Quick's reaction....

She's a smoldering beauty; who makes Stevie look like Keynes.


Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

Would have voted for Rick (he is not bad), but I did not like the way he treated Ms. Tavakoli.  Abstain. 

Master Bates's picture

Mmmm... Janet Tavakoli.  She's pretty hot for an older gal, especially because of what she knows.

I love me an old, smart cougar that was a looker in her day! LOL

So, sure, Rick shares the view of most ZH readers. But, in that video clip, he sure looked like he forgot to take his meds.

If you're going off of boobs, gotta go with Michelle C-C.

Maybe the Liesman votes were casted by true contrarians.

Whta was the question again?

Ok, so it looks like Liesman knows how to vote for himself at least 60 times (at the time of me writing this).


Also, holy crap, but I just realized the spelling of his last name, wow.  Kind of like the weirdness of "Madoff".


Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

All Lies, man. Said Made off with the monie.  Green span as far as the eye can see.  The Buffet is always open for these devils.  The Red Shields made up that name (were Meyer), and the Rockefellers felled rocks after they sold 'snake oil', how ironic.  Morgan saw the dawning of a new day.  Note; the last families lineage go back, and back, and back.  Look up the Herberts and Walkers.  Look up the Pierces.  The Bushes are actual royalty.  Oh, and there is a name! 

Not needing to be brilliant, "thy" bidding is easy when money is power.  Oysters bitches!

I think Prescott Bush was probably the most destructive to this country.

There is a lot to a name, and someone Madoff with billions as all we here are Liesman.

Steve Liesman is the cranky voice of conventional wisdom. You can count on him to say whatever Paul Krugman and Robert Reich tell him to say. He gets cranky when people tell him he is full of it.

Johnny B's picture

Steve is not in their league.  But I do think he gets a hard on when he gets to speak with them.

gpanek's picture

Yeah, you probably watch fox "views" too and think its "fair and balanced".  What a joke.  We need more like Reich and Krugman.... and Keith Oberman.

You let Liesman vote 37 times?

Yes We Can. But Lets Not.'s picture

Liesman is a bully political hack masquerading as an economist.
