When the duo appeared together again on Oct. 12, they concluded it wasn’t. Cramer was on “Hardball” to promote his new book, “Jim Cramer’s Getting Back to Even.”</p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/articles/chris-matthews-rude-awakening-787-billion-stimulus-big-grab-bag-stuff" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Articles MRC Business Government Barack Obama Chris Matthews CNBC grabbag Hardball Jim Cramer Mad Money MSNBC Stimulus Tue, 13 Oct 2009 14:50:20 +0000 admin 26553 at http://mrc.org Cramer: Small Rate Cut 'Delayed the Recovery' http://mrc.org/articles/cramer-small-rate-cut-delayed-recovery <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/jeff-poor">Jeff Poor</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Back on August 3, CNBC “Mad Money” host <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOVXh4xM-Ww"></a>Jim Cramer threw a fit – screaming Armageddon and pounding the table – because the Federal Reserve was slow to cut interest rates.
