    Viwers of Mad Money only hear what they want to hear. If you look back over 2008 Cramer called a bottom at least a dozen times. Cramer is like all these TV guys. They are great "after the fact." None of them knows dork as to where the market is heading. It's like Ben Stein when this sub prime started. He said its nothing to worry about. It can't affect the large banks. So it goes with Cramer. He is a farcical con artist and that my dear investers is what people want to see and hear.

    • Cramer is one very smart dude.

      I watch his show for the first 10 minutes or so because he clearly understands the tone of the market.

      He will intersperse his overview with a huge body of knowledge about tangential things. Usually they are plays on words, people, and history.

      --Beyond that he provides entertainment.

    • Agreed people want to hear, what they want to hear..

      When you tell em what they don't want to hear... they get angry...

      It does not matter that their holdings have gone from $21 to $5.59. You think that would be proof enough..

      The expectation is that they will be back where they started.

      Beyond the strategy being self-liquidating, in bear or downward markets, we would need to see a 375% increase in the value of these shares!

      The only things that are going to save these portfolios are cash, short positions to hedge, and growth stocks (mostly solar and alternative energy - with a smattering of acquisition targets}.
