    This is what the Network tools should be doing
    But they're too busy towing the company line I guess

    But I still laugh my ass off with Jon icon_cool.gif

    the response..




    cramer always made the bulk of his money from transactions fees and book/tv deals, not actual fund performance, like the majority of wall st..

    i think ever since colbert dominated stewart's rating, john got a napolean complex and his show's turned to cheap, uncomplicated humor..

    bush is dumb...uhm, duhhhhhhh....it seems more contrived, i miss when he was effortlessly cool. at least colbert can still mock himself.

    i see john as the housewives of orange county, and colbert as the houswives of new york city..the former pokes fun at the surface/obvious with slapstick facial expressions, whereas the latter just has so much more levels of conflict/ego/class bashing and is more subtle in its mockery. luann's a whore

    Part of that has to do with the fact that, aside from his charitable trust, as an analyst, CNBC doesn't allow him to own any stock for personal gain.

    I usually love Jim Cramer... He has been right about alot of things in this market. Notably, Citigroup's collapse and Cox's ineptitude.

    He needs to learn how to take some criticism though. He sang Geithner's praises all the way to his confirmation, and Geithner is turning out to be somewhat of a loser.

    I don't appreciate his labeling of the president as a socialist who's bent on destroying Wall Street and the American way of life.

    And I think he's taken Stewart's criticism a little lightly and somewhat dishonestly. Most people have recommended stocks that are down. But he recommended a stock that has since totally collapsed.

    Big difference between recommending a stock (like one of his other favorites Linn Energy) that is down maybe 30 percent from July 2008 and a company that no longer exists.

    And this is meant to belittle what Jon Stewart does? icon_rolleyes.gif

    Mr Cramer whined like a little girl that Jon took him out of context
    and misquoted him
    If Jim Cramer has a doppleganger that speaks out of both sides of his ass
    maybe then Jon Stewart will have to apologize

    Facial expressions and all
    Until then .... I wouldn't listen to a word this guy says
