Cramer Rips Obama's Policy Initiatives, And Gets Ripped By Jon Stewart. I Wonder Why...
3/13/2009 | Laissez-Faire Capitalist

Posted on 03/13/2009 5:28:09 PM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

Anyone notice how CNBC's Jim Cramer ripped Obama's policy initiatives, expressing dismay at how Obama was continually screwing up in regards to fixing the financial mess, and how Jon Stewart takes Jim Cramer to task after the fact?

Where was Jon Stewart before Jim Cramer ripped Obama's policy initiatives?

And where was Jon Stewart in regards to how Barney Frank, the Banking Queen, and Chris Dodd did more than their fair share of helping to screw the economy up?

I'm no fan of Jim Cramer, but I really doubt Jon Stewart's sincerity in this matter.

America is in trouble when people take “The Comedy Channel” seriously.

Who is Jon Stewart and why should I care what he has to say?

Stewart is the very model of a twit. So much so that next to twit in the dictionary should be his likeness. To allow this “twit” to best you in debate should be a perpetual source for shame and Cramer should show his face no more.

Anyone who challenges Obeyme is going to be taken seriously by the Obama administration and the liberal MSM.

CNBC’s Jim Cramer, Limbaugh, Hannity, CNBC’s Santelli.

Just to name a few.

Another person who make more than his fair share of money for not really doing anything of lasting value. In 10 years, his show will be memory. No one will care. But he’ll still be a millionaire. What has he really done to be worth all of that money? Nothing, I say. All he did was be himself.

Personally, I enjoy any leftist on leftist fight. Cramer vs Stewart is no exception.

On the other hand, Cramer brought it on himself by his own hyperbole, and the ample video available to call him on it.

I hope there’s a way that both of them will take hits below the waterline as this petty skirmish ensues.

What is interesting is the concerted attacks on anyone who criticizes Pres Obortion. The entire MSM was in the tank for the guy and spent all their time trashing Bush. Now that Bush is gone they trash every critic, even Cramer who was a bigtime Obummer supporter, he just disagrees with the current financial policies, and let’s face it even though Cramer is sort of a dufus he has forgotten more about finance than Jon Stewart ever knew.

Now Cramer understands what Palin went through with Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric. Never ever fight your enemy at a time and place of his choosing.

Stewart is a Whip Master for the Establishment Media to keep Cramer on the Plantation.

If there was nothing to see here, then why did you post here?

You show that obviously there is something important in all of this.

Obeyme and the MSM will not put up with anyone - left or right - challenging them.

We should all be appalled at that and take note.

You’re missing the sarcasm; and some really flippant Jon Stewart disses.

And it appears that this thread has some libberhoid’s on it (who are posting) who apparently also want to keep Cramer on the plantation.

I don’t watch john stewart so I have no idea if he’s done any comedic ripping on Bisexual BaCock. But you’d think that the fact that NO ONE wants to work for BaCock under Geithner would be headline news and something worthy to ridicule Bacock over. So has Stewart done any ridiculing of BiBacock?

I agree with Fling Wingflyer:

“America is in trouble when people take “The Comedy Channel” seriously.”

Taking Stewart seriously would be like taking “Corky the Clown” seriously. They are both in it for the laughs and the money. Paint Jon Stewart’s face white and give him a pair of white gloves and he could do a great “mime” act on the streets!

I suppose the main difference is that Jon Stewart is a comedian. It’s like he told Begala and Carlson when he ripped them a few years ago - everyone knows he runs a fake news show. What was their excuse?

Cramer is a lib jerk, but he’s being tossed under the bus for taking the “Failure in Chiefs” name in vain.

The message the MSM is sending is 'don't attack Obama' or we will destroy you.

I have more disdain for Stewart than most people here but, he really held Cramer’s nose to the fire in this interview. Basically Cramer had no good answer for the contention that the media in general and the business reporting in specific were (are ) in the tank for wall street. I think he is right, even fox business seems like a cheerleader for them. Where is the investigative reporting? And no ....this is the first time I’ve Stewart this decade.

Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz is a low-life douchebag.

That is what I have to say.

I think the Madoff thing reverberated enough amongst the community such that Stewart was called to go on the extreme offensive to keep them on the Rat plantation.

Since Obama has been in office Jonathan Leibowitz has shown himself to be another wealthy media party hack.

I watched Leibowitz all through the Bush years and thought he’d also poke fun at a DNC administration.

Clearly Leibowitz is 100% bought and paid for.

Cramer’s decision to appear on Jon Stewart’s show worked as well for him as Don Imus’s decision to kiss Al Sharpton’s ass.
