Cramer was just trying to cover his butt from his glowing appraisal of AEM several months ago. He was just backpedalling. He said he ALWAYS recommended ETFs like GLD and not mining stocks because they have so many problems. HA! Well that was news to me.
He'd praised AEM and FCX and GG..... and on and on. If he was HONEST he'd have used the interview to say he was WRONG before about mining stocks and that he'd changed his mind.
