The Finger of Shame

Jim Cramer takes on the Obama administration.

President Obama's team, unlike Bush's team, demonstrates a thinness of skin that shocks me. When I somewhat obviously and empirically judged that the populist Obama administration is exacerbating the crisis with its budget and policies, as evidenced by the incredible decline in the averages since his inauguration, I was met immediately with condescension and ridicule rather than constructive debate or even just benign dismissal. I said to myself, "What the heck? Are they really that blind to the Great Wealth Destruction they are causing with their decisions to demonize the bankers, raise taxes for the wealthy, advocate draconian cap-and-trade policies and upend the health care system? Do they really believe that only the rich own stocks? What do they think we have our retirement accounts in, CDs? Where did they think that the money saved for college went, our mattresses? Do they think the great middle class banks at the First National Bank of Sealy and only the wealthiest traffic in the Standard & Poor's 500?"

Cramer's not exactly a dittohead or leftist-hating reactionary, either.

Mussolini in Short Pants is showing himself to be the pipsqueak bully that he is. First Limbaugh, now Kramer. Did Bush ever call out any of the lay or professional assholes who accused him of a laundry list of horrific acts and characteristics in 8 years of hammering by same?

Holder should re-aim his coward label directly at his boss.
