CNBC's Cramer: Everybody Wishes Obama Would Just Go Away

"Has Jim Cramer just touched off another round of Tea Parties?"

So asked TVNewser's Chris Ariens Thursday in response to another anti-Obama demonstration by the outspoken CNBCer who appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" hours earlier:

But until we get the economy moving again, I think everybody wishes that Obama would just kind of go away for a little bit.

Honestly, you've got to see it to believe it (video embedded below the fold with partial transcript):

JOE SCARBOROUGH, HOST: Hey, Jim Cramer, let me ask you a quick question about a stunning poll - I know you guys have been talking about it for the past hour. But a stunning poll the New York Times has this morning suggesting that Americans are more concerned about deficits than stimulus. Don't you think this puts the Obama administration behind the eight ball on health care? You talk about keeping it under a trillion dollars - I think it has to be lower unless they pay for it.

JIM CRAMER: Well, I think that Americans - These are all sub-rows of issues. This is all about taxes, and there's a belief that until the economy recovers, we simply can't afford tax increases, a la what happened in 1937 in this country. And when they hear health care reform, it just means tax increases, and there's got to be someone who pays for it. And the under a trillion dollars, it is over many years as Ron Brownstein said, it just makes it at least somewhat palatable.

But until we get the economy moving again, I think everybody wishes that Obama would just kind of go away for a little bit.

Think he'll soon be Olbermann's "Worst Person in the World?"

Yes -- that was a rhetorical question.
