Robert Gibbs took to the podium today to defend President Obama's foreclosure recovery plan and took direct aim at Rick Santelli and his hysterical rant on CNBC yesterday.

But the American people are struggling every day to meet their mortgage, stay in their jobs, pay their bills to send their kids to school, and to hope that they don't get sick or somebody they care for gets sick that sends them into bankruptcy. I think we left a few months ago the adage that if it was good for a derivatives trader, that it was good for Main Street. I think the verdict is in on that.
"I would be more than happy to have him come here and read it. I'd be happy to buy him a cup of coffee....decaf."
