Buffett said last year that he was basically going all in hoping the US economy would turn around so I'm not surprised that he's putting a "Happy Face" on a dismal Obama economy.

Well that goes without saying… there have been no successful terrorist attacks on American soil since President Obama was inaugurated. Bush’s ineptitude allowed 9-11 to happen killing over 3000 Americans.

forgive my intrusion but i have followed your posts for some time and you seem to hit the target more times than not!! let me run something by you and if you care- have your comment!! if not - no harm no foul!! my concern is that a lot of smoke screens are emanating from d.c. which alerts me to the fact that diversions are a precursor for a larger purpose!! a couple weeks ago hillary was on a mideast tour and at an interview with al jazerra said the following!! she stated that the u.s. has committed to providing saudi arabia with american troops - arms - aircraft - naval ships - missle umbrella - missles - etc. the saudis will benefit from being in a cocoon!! she is now in the mid east on israeli/palestinian issues!! my sense is that this bodes poorly for all!!- more concerning is that she and the admin of course did all of this without any congressional approval as they were all in recess!! the services are all gearing to fill the items mentioned above!! what is your take if you do not mind telling me!!

Warren Buffet is all about getting rich off the little people trying to invest for their puny nest egg retirement. He's losing money in stocks now and needs a pick me up by lying to the American public. He's the typical Wall Street type who is a Democrat not the mythical evil Republican. In fact, so are the Tim Geithner, Peter Shiff, Paul Pelosi types, and CCX, the carbon tax trading derivative Obama is obsessed with launching to make money off the environment.

We wish you would go on without saying. You're so full of propaganda, it's pathetic.
Bush didn't allow 9/11 to happen, bin laden and his cronies attacked us many times before Bush became president.
Bush created "real" jobs, not phony jobs such as censor takers and add it to the count. Since nobamma took office,

The U.S. has lost 2.2 million jobs since President Barack Obama took office. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the total number of jobs nationwide fell from 134.3 million at the end of January to 132.2 million at the end of May.

The unemployment rate now stands at 9.4 percent, up from 7.6 percent at the end of January.

“I think my initial measure of success is creating or saving 4 million jobs,” said President Obama on February 9.
What a lie!
Monthly job losses reported by the Beauru of Labor Statistics are as follows:

Feb: 651,000
Mar: 663,000
Apr: 539,000
May: 345,000
Total: 2,198,000
Firstly, although some of the job loss can be attributed to factors other than Obama, much of it is directly related through the loss of confidence in the economy that his words and actions created. The more he spoke, and the more he engaged in economic vandalism, the less people invested. With tax increases already passed, and more on the horizen, not to mention EFCA and other anti-job legislation still on the table, why would any business want to hire right now?

Speaking of CCX....

With due credit to Obama and George Soros's...
Joyce Foundation
Tides Foundation
Center for American Progress
MediaMatters
MoveOn
Apollo Group
Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX)

Obama was a board member of the George George Soros-founded Joyce Foundation, which started the far left "Center for American Progress" (CAP) outfit, which Obama also funded, along with MediaMatters, the far-left outfit that funds leftist bloggers (also co-founded by Hillary Clinton). CAP directs Obama's marxist agenda, and was the architect of the $862 billion Stimulus bill, which was outsourced to the Apollo Alliance (another cadre of leftwing radicals based in DC) and part of the Soros-funded Tides Foundation of left-wing radicals. WH advisor Valerie Jarrett remains on the board of Joyce, from which Obama funneled money to the brother of his fellow Annenberg Project board member, terrorist Bill Ayers.

Obama was also involved in the creation of CCX (the Chicago Climate Exchange), expected to gross $10 TRILLION PER YEAR if cap & trade passes. London-based GIM (Generation Investment Management) is the 5th largest shareholder of CCX, and was founded by Al Gore and a slew of Goldman execs.

The alliances and web of corruption, cronyism, collusion, and thuggery goes much, much deeper, however, including the associations and alliances of Obama, Soros, Gore, Raines, Podesta, Jarret, Goldman, GIM, and CCX. It's no accident that Obama's cabinet and radical czar contingent is loaded with former Goldman execs and lobbyists.

Meanwhile the marxist subversive-in-chief continues to blame George Bush.

The same George Bush under whom the federal deficit was a mere $161 billion in the last budget (FY 2007) before the Democrats took control of both houses of Congress in January 2007. Whereupon they increased it to $460 billion before Bush left office, and then to $1.42 trillion in the most recent fiscal year (FY 2009) under Obama -- an increase of $1.26 trillion or 776%. While the FY 2010 deficit is projected to come in at another $1.5 trillion, along with a TRIPLING of the national debt.

The same George Bush who didn't RUIN Americans' futures for generations in the name of some whacked anti-American subversive marxist's disingenuous, anti-capitalism, pro-union, 24/7 politics-first, America-last ideology and hidden agenda for wealth-redistributive social justice, along with TRILLIONS in union payoffs on the backs of American taxpayers.

The real disaster created by the last administration was Bush's fiscally LIBERAL, unrestrained spending (despite being miniscule compared to Obama and the democrats). Bush -- for all his fiscally LIBERAL policies -- brought us back from the dot-com bust and 9/11. Under Bush the DOW
was at 14,000, the deficit under $161 billion, and unemployment at 4.2 - 4.5%.....UNTIL the democrats took over the House AND the Senate in January, 2007.
.
.
No one should forget what happened after January 20th, 2007, when the DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS.

After which they quadrupled the national debt, tripled the deficit, doubled unemployment, legislated trillions in payoffs to state unions and union pensions, and have utterly crippled confidence and prosperity in America.

From: http://www.topix.com/forum/us/politics/T50ESI...

Since 2007...

• The National Debt.....has increased from $8.67 trillion to $12.6 trillion—an increase of $3.93 trillion or 45.3%.

• The Debt Limit.....has increased six times. Since the Democrats took over Congress, the debt limit has increased from $8.965 trillion to $14.29 trillion -- an increase of $5.33 trillion or 59.4%.

• The Deficit.....has increased from $161 billion in the last budget before Democrats took control of the Congress (FY 2007) to $1.42 trillion in the most recent fiscal year (FY 2009)-- an increase of $1.26 trillion or 776%. The FY 2010 deficit is projected to come in at another $1.5 trillion.

•$10.5 Trillion Deterioration to Nation’s Budget Outlook.....The same month Democrats took control of Congress (January 2007), CBO, under then CBO Director Peter Orszag, projected an $800 billion surplus over the ten-year period FY 2008-2017. Today, covering the same period—including the actual deficits from FY 2008 and FY 2009—as well as what the President proposes in his budget for fiscal years 2011 through 2017, that $800 billion surplus turns into a $9.7 trillion deficit. This is a $10.5 trillion worsening of the budget outlook in three years of Democrat control of the Congress.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED....4 consecutive posts....

Good points for the uninformed! There's more. ShoreBank which just went bust has been resurrected by JP Morgan, GS and others (the new name escapes me) but JP Morgan, and GS stand to make the most selling carbob credits. The patent for carbon tax is held by Franklin Raines and the former head of Cantor Fitzgerald, formerly in the WTC bldgs. How Obama ties into this is through a trust fund set up by the Joyce Foundation. With cap and trade, the anointed one stands to make more than millions in revenue (some say billions). There should be no question why he is so intent on seeing this piece of crap legislation passed.

Buffett is what's wrong with the country.....he's another con man.

If the future is so frigging bright why doesn't buffett have his companies rehire the thousands upon thousands they laid off as soon as o-bribre-a was elected.

buffett has bought up tons of stock at the low resceesion prices and he is now ready for other investors to drive the prices back up for him to make several billion more to give to Gates instead of keeping the employees working that have helped make him millions of dollars.

buffett is as much of a POS as o-bribe-a.

Buffet, the billionaire, who boasts of paying less in taxes than his secretary! And Ballmer, who flaunted Costa Rican law and bought coastal property.
