As an example, Cramer pointed to Oracle, which just bought Eloqua, a cloud computing play for $23.50, a 31 percent premium to Eloqua's Nasdaq close on Wednesday.
"That's extraordinary, just amazing," said Cramer. It's another example of a company getting more aggressive, via M&A.
But it doesn't stop there. Published reports suggest Gardner Denver, a maker industrial machinery, is on the verge of selling itself to SPX for more than $4 billion.
"Again, SPX is doing what a company has to do to grow in this business, make an acquisition to get bigger," said Cramer. "It's a match made in heaven."
In addition, two relatively unknown insurance companies merged, with Merkel buying Alterra. (No, not German Chancellor Angela Merkel!)
The Mad Money host said all these deals demonstrate that things are percolating.
"The acquiring companies aren't waiting around any more, they are moving, taking their cash and stock and putting it to work regardless of political concerns."
Considering Corporate America has been immobilized by fiscal cliff concerns, "That's a huge change," said Cramer.
