WITH OBAMA IN CANADA, RICK SANTELLI STARTS UP CHICAGO TEA PARTY

Well, today President Barack Obama was getting rock star treatment in Ottawa, meeting with Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Meanwhile, the bloom seems to be coming off the rose back home. Maybe Obama should just stay in Canada.

Seems CNBC correspondent Rick Santelli was getting a bunch of Chicago traders all fired up about the government "promoting bad behavior" by giving bailout money to all the "losers" on the losing end of the mortgage mess. Traders were giving him a big ovation as he asked them "how many of you want to pay for your neighbour's mortgage?"

They're calling it the Chicago Tea Party. Here's what US News and World Report had to say on the Santelli rant.

I gotta say, Rick Santelli has a future in TV.
