Jim Cramer, MAD MONEY CNBC, a staunch BHO supporter says...

Original post made by Perspective, Midtown, on Mar 5, 2009

Here we go again...we have to RACE INTO more government control of HEALTH CARE CHANGES and CAP AND TRADE changes RIGHT NOW while even a former BHO staunch supporter, Jim Cramer, of MAD MONEY is starting to proclaim that this President is the biggest destroyer of wealth he has ever seen in this country.

No problem, now Jim is on the "enemy list" of this White House, so we will just not listen to him.

Back to yet more economy killing ideas..Doesn't anyone see the upside-non-logic of BHO and the purported goal of lowering health costs by putting government in control? Hasn't everything the Dem controlled Congress for 2 years, and now Dem controlled White House, done made our economy worse? What makes anyone think government interference can make our health care costs lower?

We all agree that health insurance costs are out of control...let's talk REAL ways of lowering the costs, through tort reform and allowing people to buy insurance ACROSS STATE LINES. Let me buy health insurance that isn't required to provide English language translations, and chiropractic, and accupuncture..and guess what? I will be able to afford better insurance! But, this radical left government can only think of one "solution"..the one that will kill health care innovation and choice in our country.

As an aside, does anyone here see the irony of GEITHNER, he of thousands of dollars of tax evasion in this decade alone, yesterday proclaiming that he is going to go after tax-evaders?

If I weren't pinching myself, I would swear I am just in a nightmare written by George Orwell.

Ah, yes, Jim Cramer of Mad Money. The one who told you that everything was over-priced but BUY ANYWAY at the top of the market. That's the guy you're looking to for advice is it?

Orwellian nightmare - I hadn't thought about it that way, but its true. Just keep saying that the administration is the cleanest and most transparent while appointing tax cheats, granting tons of ethics waivers and passing the stimilus bill overnight in spite of the pledge to post legislation on the internet with 5 days for everyone to review it. And of course the laughable claim that the stimilus bill doesn't have any earmarks.

To the Obama voters - are you proud of this conduct?

Orwellian nightmare - I hadn't thought about it that way, but its true. 8 years of the animal farm is finally came to an end and we're only now waking up to how bad he nightmare was.

Actually, I didn't ever "take his advice" then and don't now.. ....he was inconsistent and gave bad advice..and was an extremely strong Obama supporter ( another reason I knew Obama would be bad for the economy, cuz this guy supported him!)

So, no I didn't then and still don't look to him for advice. My point is that he was one of the "economists" and "business people" who supported Obama, and is joining the ever growing list of shocked and disillusioned Obama voters who can't believe that the rest of us were right about this guy being either a true believer or a puppet of true believers who are determined to put into place every policy that has ever been wished for by the left..and has been repeatedly proven by history to destroy economies.

Is this what you voted for?

So we both agree that Jim Cramer doesn't know what he's talking about and gives bad advice.
The difference is that you now consider him credible even though he STILL doesn't know what he's talking about and gives bad advice.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
