When the history books are finally written to cover our current administration, they will clearly label Obama as the poster child for Crony Capitalism. And we all know that Buffett doesn't play with mere millions... he's into billions of revenue from this cozy deal.

Buffett would profit from Keystone cancellation

Warren Buffett whom President Obama likes to cite as a fair-minded billionaire while arguing for higher taxes on the wealthy, stands to benefit from the president’s decision to reject the Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.Mr. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. owns Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC, which is among the railroads that would transport oil produced in western Canada if the pipeline isn’t built.

“Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Neb.-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc., told Bloomberg News. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul,” she said.

Obama was groomed by world financiers for his role. Why do you think he has bottomless cash? Who, in their right mind, spends a BILLION dollars to be elected. How can anyone in the lower rungs of life not make this connection?
