Maybe that is the sign of a market bottom? Or the end of the world?

Cramer is a life long Democrat, although rumor has it he may support Mitt Rommey. According to Newsmeat Cramers contributed $260,000 to Democrats and 0 to Republican over the last decade.

He is an emotional guy. I like Cramer, he is entertaining. Although, I do not watch his show. He has that hedge fund mentality. Like to short stocks, shooting for the big win. Nuttin' wrong with that if you can be successful at it. And apparently he has been successful.

Two weeks ago (July 16, 2007), Cramer mockingly said the Sub-Prime blow-up was utterly meaningless, and would have utterly no impact at all . . .

Interesting. I stand corrected. Though I note that if this website is up to date, he stopped contributing to anyone 7 years ago except for one contribution to Schumer more than four years ago.

I don't know if I'd consider him to still be a Democrat based on this. After all, past performance does not guarantee future results.

The two items are hardly mutually exclusive. Romney is a RINO (Republican In Name Only). Same with Giuliani, same with McCain. If one of them gets elected, we'll have slightly less hysterically insane nonsense as if Clinton or Obama wins.

Isn't it so nice to have two policial parties that are nearly identical?

Here's hoping that Fred Thompson runs. He may not be perfect, but he's a lot closer to a true conservative than anyone since Reagan.

I'd prefer a Jack Kemp / Steve Forbes-type conservative, myself...

Back to the topic at hand, I've seen more than one talking head say that the Fed should lower rates because of the housing bubble collapse and associated mortgage pain. Methinks it's better to let this thing play out. No more bubbles...

Old Jimmy needs some prozac and Erin needs a haz mat suit.

So what if some of your friends have to sell their boats, sports cars and mansions, does my heart good to see these greedy bastards sweat.

CRAMER: No, I donít think so but I think that itís the devil you donít know.
I think that what would happen is people would say well, Kerry is going to come in and with guns blazing against the pharmaceuticals, maybe rewrite some of the medicare bill which was basically written by the drug companies.
Maybe he will create some distance and raise capital gains so that you would want to sell stock now because the capital gains rate is going to go up.
I envision those things occurring. I am a Democrat though and feel that Kerry would in the end surprise you and be a lot more like Clinton, which was a fabulous time to own stocks.
Also I'm learning here but didn't the fed "open the discount window" like Cramer complained about?

I KNOW exactly what that lady is thinking while Cramer is spitting and ranting, "Now, where exactly did I put that Midol? Is it in my purse? My desk? Hmmmmm...." Must be that time of the month for Jim.
Just finally looked at this video. Hysterical.
