Cramer - Why Obama Is Bad for Stocks
TheStreet.com ^ | 06/24/2010 | Jim Cramer

Posted on 06/26/2010 6:38:42 AM PDT by safetysign

I heard it five times this week, twice Tuesday in a Wall Street bar, two times during the day chatting with investors and then last night at dinner with a pal, an old pro trader from down the block. All said the same word, as if programmed, like pod people in Invasion of the Body Snatchers. The word?

Malaise.

I wish that somebody, anybody could tell me what Stroker is GOOD for.

The guy is waste of skin and dna.

The sooner that he is gone, the better off we will all be.

Hey Stupid, why not do a column about “why Jim Cramer, smartest man on Wall Street, didn’t see this coming.”

Given that a plurality of my colleagues voted for President Obama, the conclusions were pretty grim for what one soul called a "failed presidency."

If they couldn't see the obvious in 2008, of what value is their opinion now?

NEVER take any voting advice from Cramer. He was cheerleading for Obummer big time. Regretting your vote now, Jim? Oh, how the mighty libs have fallen.

“It sure feels like we are stuck in a malaise and have been reduced to a pitiful helpless giant, hobbled this time by high debt, huge taxes, an anti-business agenda that is freezing job growth and an intractable economy.”

I just purchased “Gulliver’s Travels” just a few days ago.

Cramer was a big Obama fan and advocated that people vote for Obama and we’ll live in paradise.

As a “savvy” market/investment expert Cramer claims to be, he should have seen this coming, as all of us, much less “savvy” saw it clear as day, that Obama is going to destroy the country.

Of all the big businesses that threw huge support behind this Communist ba$tard, George Soros is the only businessman Obama is looking out for. Everyone else is a target for nationalization.

Obama is bad for America. Cramer knows that. Those, white and black, who voted for him because of his race would not have done so if he had been run on a Republican ticket. They will vote for a white Democrat over a black Republican every time. So it is Democrat party over God and Country regardless of issues or color, or race. We now have a country run by the democrats, for the democrats, and of the unions and for the unions. Cramer and his ilk will again vote for those they now fault even if the Republican candidate is 5 different colors at the same time. I despise the subversion of this country by those who have national platforms to spew out misinformation on any given day on any given subject. Self serving parasites all.

Like a battered wife, he wants to forgive his messiah because, well, it's not really his fault.

It's "the people who have been setting his agenda" who are to blame for his fall from grace, as if Obama isn't in perfect synch with them.

And I doubt his embrace of offshore drilling was ever anything but words, just words.

Look, in this country it is never too late for Obama to reinvent, broom the people who have been setting his agenda, tack toward pro-growth, although his one attempt to break with the orthodoxy came when he embraced offshore drilling -- a luckless failed presidency?

Funny - Obama’s spread the wealth statements, links to marxism and unions didn’t seem to bother these guys in 2008. Did 53% of the voting public take a stupid pill in 2008?

I cannot believe I am saying this, but Hillary would have been FAR superior to this guy. Thanks Kramer for rallying the troops to Obama’s cause in 2008.

It was obvious 00Obama was a Marxist. Millions of people will have significantly lower standards of living because of it. We can only hope that people in the financial industries stop giving so much to Democrats before it is too late.

Soros is just an ancillary player, IMO. Obama’s real masters are the royal families of Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, and Brunei.

I agree with you that the Saudis claim at least partial ownership in Obama, Inc.

I can't even read the article...

Cramer has been a pump and dump artist and the master of financial porn.

He and all the young turks on Wall St voted for Oboingo because he was cool.

Now the banking bill sucks, their is no commerical paper for small businesses, dividend taxes will go up (and many more as Bush's cuts get sunsetted) and many may exit the market in anticipation of higher rates this August or so, and those making over 250k (all these your turks) will take it in the shorts....

How is that hopey changey workin' for you now Jim?, What a maroon......
