I'll bet he loves Fruit of the Loom since he closed the plant in Kentucky and moved it overseas.  God knows it's not like he has enough money or anything; or like Americans need jobs to feed their families and have hope for their future.

Crazy 8's;


Speaking of Buffet and Obama is as follows. In 2008 our portfolio had sunk to under $600,000 and the market teetered at 6,600. You remember on Friday the 750 billion needed on Monday or the country would crash. You remember the housing crash and Wall Street betting the crash would happen to make a fortune. They did and the banks paid the price. All around my wife and I were scared to feel we worked our butts off and we would retire in 2009 bankrupt. Well, the good news is Buffet lent GE and Goldman Sachs a fortune at extremely high interest. We bought both companies corporate bonds at $150,000 worth each and 40,000 GE shares at $2.75 each and 50,000 Ford Motor Company shares at $2.95 each. Well the market closed at an all time high today and thanks to Mr Buffett we have a net worth of $1,745,000 retired and living is terrific.

Buffett should take his own lead with relocating so many of his companies out of the US and move out as well. He is No friend to our country. Just ask all the people that have lost their jobs because of him.

Every time they have an article about what stocks Warren Buffet loves, all the comments are political.
Everyone rambles on and on about Buffet being senile and doesn't know what he's talking about, ruining peoples lives, the economy being in shambles, socialism, dems/republicans….blah blah blah. Can't anyone comment on the companies mentioned?! What the hey.

Hey, MSN.  Please no good news, nothing positive.  Just give us all gloom and doom.  The sky is falling, the stock market is falling,  housing prices are falling, the unemployment rate is falling,  err, no wait, rising, all things are horrible, be pessimistic.  Be miserable, you know, like all Republicans because that is what they want.  If we were attacked and suffered another 9/11 the Republicans would rejoice because they could then say " Obama isn't protecting us and all Democrats caused the destruction of the Country."  Forget that the Republicans have deliberately stonewalled any progress this country could possible have made over the past 6 years to get us out of the recession,  because they plan to make Obama fail and will accept nothing less.  They aren't succeeding, but that won't stop them.  I have to give them credit for their perseverance.

"Well the market closed at an all time high today and thanks to Mr Buffett we have a net worth of $1,745,000 retired and living is terrific."

Dipping into the trough provided by QE and fiat printed money was the easy part. What now. There are NO institutions capable of sustaining without stimuli and the markets can't attract new money because subsequent generations are broke, can't find stable employment and wouldn't trust the financial sector if they had to. You people are morons-- you brag about "net worth" but it isn't worth anything if there are no vessels to hold it and no economy to substantiate it. If you had a brain, you would take two-thirds of that and BUY local momentum for cash flow and either run it or pay talent to run it. Your euphoria is artificial. You'll be broke soon unless you wake up.

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market maintained a narrow trading range on Thursday before ending the session essentially where it began. The S&P 500 added less than a point, while the small-cap Russell 2000 (-0.2%) underperformed.

Equity indices displayed early strength thanks in part to an overnight boost from better than expected economic data in China and Europe. Specifically, China's HSBC Manufacturing PMI surged to an 18-month high (52.0 from 50.7), while Eurozone Manufacturing PMI ... More
