Cramer “Uncomfortable Being in the Crosshairs,” Rush Tries to Help

Cramer_3.9.JPGCNBC’s Jim Cramer is responding to his critics in the media — from the left and right – from print, TV and radio — over his comments about the Obama administration priorities.

I’m uncomfortable being in the crosshairs of columnists and comedians I enjoy, and I find the embrace of Rush Limbaugh most certainly strange if not antithetical to many of my viewpoints.

Cramer also writes about his other “new allies” on the right:

Fred Barnes and Sean Hannity, don’t hold my left wing social view against me when they talk about my criticism of the president! I always love anyone from Fox on the team because they are fierce in their defense with much less gratuitous slamming.

On his show a short time ago, Limbaugh tried to help Cramer out, “I certainly mean this as assistance,” he said, adding:

Poor guy. His head’s about to explode…Jim Cramer is experiencing what I’ve been talking about and experiencing for two decades…Welcome to the club, Jim…For some of us Jim,
this is part of the day, this is part of our careers.

The Beltway Boys Grow Up

BeltwayBoys_7.25.jpgToday marks the 10th anniversary of Fox News Channel’s “The Beltway Boys” which is hosted by Washington journalists, Fred Barnes and Morton Kondracke. The show, which airs Saturdays at 6pmET & 11pMET, focuses on the week’s most memorable moments and hottest issues from inside the Beltway. This week Fred and Mort focus on Sen. Obama’s trip and Sen. McCain’s VP choice, whoever that might be.

And just for laughs, Brit Hume should walk into the studio during the taping. How’s that for an anniversary gift?
