Maybe you are misreading his prediction. Buffett knows like we all do that the republicans will be sweeping the house and senate in November and take over the government. Maybe he is simply saying that the just as soon as the republicans take over the country, the economy will instantly improve. Thats good right? Thats what we expect from the new government that will be in charge come the November elections.

What the "Business Leaders" expect from the Republicans is Tax Cuts and more "Free Trade Agreements." They are holding-off from hiring more Americans because they know that the high-unemployment numbers make the voters uneasy and that will encourage them to vote for the Republicans:

Buffet, the billionaire, who boasts of paying less in taxes than his secretary! And Ballmer, who flaunted Costa Rican law and bought coastal property.
Who says money doesn't talk!
Buffett's companies are also known for screwing over their employees. Working salaried employees on regular over time without compensation. His companies have lost several employee law suits and had to be forced to pay back pay for screwing employees.

his companies are also known for screwing laid off emplyees on severence pay. Only paying 2 weeks severence pay no matter how many years employed with the company. 1 year ..10 years or 20 years same thing 2 weeks.

Buffett made a big media splash about giving Gates billions of dollars while he could have kept employees on the payroll instead of laying them off and helped his companies, America and employees.

screw buffett, he's out to screw people out of money just for the fun of it.

So Mr. Buffett (who voted for our Kenyan Muslim Prezidents) is now spreading the bullshit that our economy is getting back on track? It's funny that when you are one of the richest men in the WORLD, and NOTHING can touch your cash, you tend to side with the socialists. Mr. Buffett, sit back, count your money and shut the f**k up.

Nine years after 9/11 sent US-Saudi relations crashing to a low point, bilateral ties have made a complete 180-degree turnaround with the Obama administration's plan to sell up to $60 billion worth of advanced aircraft to Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Arabian package, which would be the US's largest-ever overseas arms sale and has been in negotiations since 2007, underscores how Israel no longer feels threatened by Saudi Arabia and how the US increasingly sees the Gulf state as essential toward containing Iran, says Thomas Lippman at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Ya think this may have something to do with Iran and their hunt for a nuclear weapon?

Sure.
I'm sure the stock market will gain value - in 2 years.
I'm sure unemployment will improve - before next election.
I'm sure GDP will grow at a beneficial rate - eventually.
I'm sure health care costs will drop, as promised - after repeal.
I'm sure small businesses will flourish - after we remove all the regulation placed on them.
I'm sure the mortgage crisis will improve - after Obama and the Libs pay off the debts of the irresponsible with taxpayer money.

If the Liberals had answers and good policies, "change" would have ALREADY happened!

Kick out the Democrats and repeal Obamacare.

Buffett is a capable business man, but wasn't he saying the economy was already improving a year or so back?

It's in his business interest to have confidence return to the markets. Once people start acting on their greed again, the economy will expand until the next bubble reams the middle class again.

Let's screw the rich and wealthy! How could it possibly affect us anyway?

It makes more sense to take individual wealth and force it into the hands of the politicians to spend in their districts and ensure their re-election.

Why do the "people" fight this so?????

Businesses in America are already the highest taxed in the world, contribute more than 40% of taxes, not including small businesses. They don't take money out and put it in their tidy personal bank accounts. The money belongs to the corporation. They do what is called reinvestment in their business, and expand so they can hire more.

Listen to Intel's CEO, who is no enemy of Obama's, should you want to paint him that way in your broken records against good companies.

IF you want to rile against an entity, rile against Wall Street, usually Democrat types like Buffet, who demand high earnings as stock owners.

Most CEOs tend to throw some money at candidates who are expected to win and keep their heads down. Which is why Intel CEO Paul Otellini’s total evisceration of Obama’s understanding of the economy in the middle of an election season was such a shocking breath of fresh air today.

Otellini is also one of the first Fortune 500 CEOs to speak publicly about President Obama’s newly proposed $350 billion economic recovery plan. He said that proposal, which includes tax breaks for businesses and research and development incentives, is not the right plan either.

The way Otellini sees it, Washington must decide what the industries of the future are.“We still subsidize trains and agriculture — industries of the 19th century. We should decide what’s important to us going forward and make sure we’ve got the education system in place and the capital incentive system in place to do the investment here.”

Otellini also said that a major problem for companies is that they are being held back by high corporate tax rates.

Otellini says it costs Intel (INTC, Fortune 500)$1 billion more to build a factory in the U.S. than abroad because of a lack of U.S. tax incentives. The company has a multi-billion dollar factory slated to open in China this October.

“You have to weigh the advantages of working here, the security of working here in this country…against that billion dollars.”

Otellini questioned why global business leaders would want to do business in the U.S. due to the cost, saying it is critical to incentivize foreign countries to invest in America.“Our corporate taxes are twice what they are in the rest of the world. You want corporations to invest here.”
