Former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey was on CNBC’s Squawk Box this morning talking about his new book Give us Liberty: A Tea Party Manifesto in which he writes about the movement and its roots — which was inspired by this rant from CNBC Chicago correspondent Rick Santelli.
For his part, Santelli missed Armey’s segment this morning as he was still on his way to work, telling Joe Kernen, “I was on the train, Joe, but the rant was a year and a half ago. The Tea Party movement is moving along. It’s pretty cool after a year and a half.”
