Rush is talking about the fact that Warren Buffett disagrees with the way Obama is handling the economy on four fundamental areas and NO, Warren is not a right Wing hateful Republican, he actually voted for Obama!

Democrats disagree on handling the economy. Even Republicans disagree (at least those not in Congress).

It's divided. Sorry, not everything fits into Rush's idealogue box.

But Buffet was trotted out as a big obama supporter during the campaign. A lot of people put a lot of stock in the fact that buffet endorsed obama and his grand schemes to "stimulate" the economy.

Buffett stock has dropped almost 40% in the past 2 months as well.

Hey repubocrat, maybe it's time to turn off Rush and listen to what Buffet actually had to say. I just watched him on CNBC and read the transcript, and I don't see any "four points" wherein he disagrees with Obama. But then Rush wouldn't have much of a show if he didn't come up with some way to slam Obama and use a high profile name as his surrogate to do it.

OTOH, anyone who was touting GW last September at $27/share, might not want to answer too many questions about that when it's in the mid-$7.00 range!

Buffett disagrees with the Obama is handling the economy or Buffett disagrees with some aspects of Obama's policies? From what I've read the former is your personal fantasy, so unless you have a link from which we can all read and discuss this issue...

Hey, should we just take your and Rushbo's word on it, or do you intend on providing a link with the exact quote...

Buffet Comments:

Buffett: The economy has ‘fallen off a cliff’ - CNBC TV- msnbc.com

OMAHA, Neb. - Billionaire Warren Buffett said unemployment will likely climb a lot higher depending upon how effective the nation’s policies are, but he remains optimistic over the long term.

Buffett said the nation’s leaders need to support President Barack Obama’s efforts to repair the economy because fear is dominating Americans’ behavior and the economy has basically followed the worst-case scenario he envisioned.

Buffett disagrees on Obama trying to many things at once, (health care, energy) instead of solely focusing on the economy. That's why Buffett is an economic advisor and Obama is the President. One is focused solely on one thing and the other must multi-task.

I'm sure Rush is lying and making it bigger than it is in typical repub fashion. If you take your cues from Rush, that shows how dense you are.
