Cramer: My Meeting With the Ben Bashers

His eyes rolled.

I said, Why is that so bad? If you really think the world is going to come to an end, am I not offering a substantive solution to the issue?

Nope, he said, it just doesn't help at all.

But all four naysayers did make me think. They made me think they only watch and read the same people over and over again, the ones who fret about Bernanke and NOT about the Republic. The ones who think that all that matters is preserving their wealth and they hear it is threatened by Bernanke.

To me, it is threatened by a president and a Congress that aren't serious about cutting spending or genuinely believe that tax increases will mean anything without Medicare reform.

They are the ones putting us at risk. That's who people should be grousing about. Ben? All he's doing is trying to keep us afloat in a world where everyone else is sinking.

What's so darned bad about that?
