Skip to comments.‘Today’: Cramer-Stewart War Rages On
Posted on 03/10/2009 8:01:03 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Another day, another round in the battle between Jim Cramer and Jon Stewart. Lets do a quick recap before proceeding to todays skirmish. As reported here, last week on Today Cramer accused Pres. Obama of the the greatest wealth destruction Ive seen by a president. In retaliation, Jon Stewart, playing the good Obama foot soldier, has tried to undermine Cramers credibility by playing clips on the Daily Show of Cramers less-than-spot-on stock recommendations. Cramer has fired back, including in this lengthy column.
OK, stage set. With Cramer and fellow CNBCer Erin Burnett as guests this morning, Meredith Vieira observed that Warren Buffett had said the economy has fallen off a cliff. Cramer joshed that the Obama admin should attack Buffett as they had the little guys, a reference to himself and the way White House press secretary Robert Gibbs had gone after him. It was Merediths response that really touched things off . . .

Once there was a mafia neighborhood. The mobsters preyed on vulnerable, immoral or stupid people to induct them into criminal activities. They threatened the good neighbors and played dirty tricks on them to keep them from informing the police. One by one, all the good people moved away. Now, the mobsters have no one left to shoot but one another.
Jon Stewart is a comedian?
If so, then I do not think that words means what I think it means.
They are gaining on us.
I find that totally, completely and in all other ways, INCONCEIVABLE!!
...and who is; Jon Stewart, a smarmy Zer0-bot, a video comedian...
Should Al Franken become a US Senator, Stewart has the perfect qualifications to be his chief of staff.
The salient issue.
This is another example of the MSM planting the seeds of their own destruction. When Stewart had Bush and a GOP congress to mock every night, the press decided to give him undeserved credibility as a “real” journalist, even going so far as to award him a Peabody at one point when, at best, he was an entertainer/commentator not unlike a liberal Rush.
“Jon Stewart is a comedian?”
maybe late at night after you have a few drinks under your belt and everything is hilarious.
Circuses and bread. This constitutes the circus part of the equation.
These days if you single out someone for criticism, they become a media magnet and an aid to their opponents cause. DOH!
Agreed: and very well put by that Finkelstein fellow [who just happens to be me, governs!]
Cramer already demonstrate how the Bear Stearns quote was taken WAY out of context. I think he is just letting it ride here since he has bigger fish to fry.
Rush talked about this yesterday. Cramer’s AGHAST that Hussein’s hit squad is attacking him. After all, he IS a liberal democrat and supported Hussein! He’s SHOCKED that MSM mis-quote him and they lie about him, etc.
Basically, Rush said, “Welcome to our world. It’s what we deal with on a daily basis.”
Cramer was surprised that the libs now attack everything he does or says, and the conservatives are open-minded and civil to him. Maybe he’s seen the light.
I would not be at all surprised to see Stewart run for office. He pontificates on Larry King routinely, just like Franken used to. King and Oprah are now in charge of elections.
Mr. Cramer, do not give in to your liberal critics. You dared to tell the truth something that is anathema to liberals everywhere.
Uh.....yeah...don’t you need to be funny to be a comedian?
In fairness, the first time Stewart played a clip of Cramer discussing Bear Stearns, it was out of context because Cramer was not recommending the stock, only telling people their deposits there were safe—which they were. But on last night’s show Stewart dug out some slightly earlier footage in which Cramer definitely was urging people to buy Bear Stearns stock. You can see it in the video clip of Today at FinkelBlog.
I watched Stewart last night and was wondering why he took off after Cramer. Now I know why.
Jon Stewart is a Comedian.
That’s a stretch and a half if I ever heard one.
Ha, I love watching Mad Money. Last night, Cramer was doing everything other than wearing an O shirt to mea culpa to the dim crowd. He's caught in a tug of war between truth and ideology. He wants to wear the Dim clothing, talk Dim, be Dim, but he wants to enjoy that luxury known as the "Truth", something Dims sneer at like a vampire at the sun. Can't have it both ways, Cramer.
“I watched Stewart last night and was wondering why he took off after Cramer. Now I know why.”
Yup, attack the Messiah, expect retaliation from his disciples.
Yeah, well they also have an easy target in Cramer.
A comedian in name only. The guy doesn't even write his own stuff.
The bad news is that there is no bread..
“Cramer is a stock speculator, who acts like a clown to attract viewers. Stewart is a clown, who acts like he knows about serious stuff to attract viewers.”
Well said!! Cramer is definately trying to attract attention with his comments. He is annoying and I can’t stand to watch him. Stewart is a comedian, who can be funny at times. He does cover serious stuff, but makes it clear that it is “fake news”. The idiots that use it as a source of information are just as stupid as those who think that Cramer has any decent financial advice to give.
There are plenty of sources for good financial information, and Cramer is not one of them. there are plenty of good places to get your political news, John Stewart isn’t one of them.
Anybody who treats Cramer as anything more than a carnival barker has no business playing in the market with the grownups.
>>Mr. Cramer, do not give in to your liberal critics. You dared to tell the truth something that is anathema to liberals everywhere.
And ironically, Cramer is a liberal.
Stewart, aka Jon Leibowitz has what Olbermann has and what has been confirmed by ex- lovers...small penis syndrome. The syndrome is marked by excessive self loathing and being hostile and hypercritical of others. His inability to satisfy a woman intellectually and physically has him emotionally constipated. He bouncing from one ultra submissive damaged woman to another in which he bullies and ridicules into a self fulfilling prophesy of a nasty and contentious breakup. Small penis sufferers have an unhealthy attachment to a Mother figure and refuse to grow emotionally past the college Junior phase of human development. Wearing 20s hipster clothes and using phraseology of the hip hop generation to remain relevant to a younger audience which seems to devour his brand of mouth diarrhea is a tell tale sign of men with SPS. Small penis syndrome sufferers naturally gravitate towards others with their cynical, negative worldview. They view all others including the ones in their peer group as ignorant rubes not in tune with the world in what they view it through their perfect prism.
Some people just can't seem to wrap their heads around the concept that when you say something on the record, it can come back to bite you on the butt.
“WTH? Jon Stewart is a Comedian.”
A Comedian...wouldn’t one need to actually be funny to claim the designation?
Jon Stewart us a comedian in much the same way that Bill Maher and Janeane Garofalo are comedians. Theyre about as funny as a screen door in a submarine or a rubber crutch.
There's $800 billion of bread (just called "stimulus") for others in today's jargon. Just no bread for thee and me.
Say, that reminds me: I think Garofalo was missing on last night’s 24. A relief.
Obummer strikes again!
I love 24...one of the few TV shows I actually enjoy watching!
Do you think Ethan Kanin, the President’s chief of staff is a bad guy plotting against her? I’m thinking yes.
I don't think so. Don't you have to be funny to be a comedian? Stewart is kinda like a slightly younger Letterman and just about as funny. Fake news, fake comedian.
Speaking of Al Franken..it would be fascinating to hold another election for that debacle....I believe Coleman would win in a landslide just based on the last two months. And the Dems know it.
