Skip to comments.Warren Buffett Reveals His Favorite Republican In The Race
Posted on 11/14/2011 4:59:50 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Warren Buffett is on CNBC this morning...
First, he sees all the Republicans going further and further to the right to out-Republican each other during the primary. It's natural, he says, though he's not sure it's good for the Republic.
...If he had to support a Republican, it would be, not surprisingly, Mitt Romney.
Given that Buffett is a pro-business, mainstream Democrat this obviously makes sense. He doesn't mind his past as a PE cost-cutter, though he's not crazy about Bain Capital's history of drawing cash out of companies they stuff up with debt.

Edward Kennedys campaign when he was challenged by Mitt Romney in 1994 remains a rich source on Romneys career at Bain...Democratic strategists are ready to attack Romney as a job-destroying corporate raider if he becomes the GOP nominee...
Lisas the coach and Ginas the quarterback in the work of rolling out new clean air regulations, said Daniel Weiss, an energy and climate policy expert at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank with close ties to the Obama administration. Shes running the plays, improvising on the line.
Another Romney environmental adviser in the effort to regulate greenhouse gases is now Obamas Director of Science and Technology Policy, John Holdren. Dr. Holdren has some exotic views: ..
Romneys Advisers Met With Obama to Help Craft Obamacare Three of Mitt Romneys advisers went to the White House at least a dozen times in 2009 to consult on the former Massachusetts governors health care plan that President Obama used as a model for his initiative -- now a federal law that all the Republican presidential candidates want to repeal.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Tuesday he was "not in a position to comment on specific meetings." But in a remark that won't help Romney in his pursuit for the 2012 Republican nomination, Earnest repeated that Obama took cues from the Massachusetts legislation.
"You've certainly heard the president himself say that there were a number of very good ideas included in the health care plan that then-Gov. Romney put in place in Massachusetts that were incorporated into the Affordable Care Act and so its clear that these are some ideas that we were interested in incorporating and we did incorporate.
That's -- I'm running for office, for Pete's sake, I can't have illegals. [video clip] -- Mitt Romney, GOP presidential debate - October 18, 2011 - Las Vegas, NV
Rudy Giuliani asked Mitt Romney the same question in the 2008 CNN debate that Rick Perry asked him during the CNN 2011 debate -- Mitt lost it both times.

All I had to do was read the headline. It was like a rhetorical question.
Hey you! With your hand raised! You're an idiot.
As opposed to a job-destroying corporate taxer.
In any case Warren Buffett is pro-Buffett, screw the rest of business world.
Buffett is a tool.
(Birds of a feather.)
Warren Buffett isn’t pro-business, he’s pro-crony capitalism. He’s pro-himself, but anti-everyone else: how else to explain that (a) his company spends millions and millions of dollars to avoid paying the very same taxes he wants everyone else to have to pay more of, and (b) he’s consistently favored government policies (i.e., liberal policies) that make it much, much harder for other people to make the same sort of fortune for themselves that he’s made. Creating barriers to entry for your erstwhile competitors is not pro-business or pro-capitalist, it’s socialist crony capitalism.
This, combined with the latest reports of insider trading by lawmakers, is more evidence of the charade and theatre that is Warren Buffet. But then again, a critical part of the REAL game IS working with the puppet strings and puppet masters of our government.
Charade and theatre are mandatory when Government is this big.
Romney isn’t a republican, he just plays one on TV.
Romney will be just like Obama if he gets elected. Herman Cain needs to win the nomination to save us from a Turd Sandwich vs. Giant Douche scenario.
I agree, conservatives need to boycott Warren Buffett-lead companies as much as possible. Make your voice heard with your wallet.
And the fact Buffett’s favorite candidate is Romney tells you Romney would continue the crony-capitalism that Buffett so desires.
That pic is the truth.
Oughta be made into a larger bumper sticker and plastered all over the site of the GOP convention or debates.
” Given that Buffett is a pro-business,”
Given that Buffett is a pro-Buffett
There......fixed it : )
Of course, cause he knows Romney would be toast against 0
I agree, conservatives need to boycott Warren Buffett-lead companies as much as possible..................................... OH no, that means no more Geico Gecko? Buffett pays for those adds.
Claims he changed parties over GOP's treatment of Blacks
In Selma, they have a whole section to Everet Dirksen who delivered more % of GOP to pass the Civil Rights Bill.
Jim Crow laws and Davis-Bacon Law were passed by Democrats to discriminate against the rights and pay of Blacks.
I wasn’t raising my hand. I was scratching my head wondering why this was even an article. It’s like having an article stating that the ocean is wet.
I guess it’d be Romney. What do I win?
I thought it was going to be a surprise, and he would be for Huntsman. But no surprise with Buffett. I’m sure the primary voters will comply accordingly.
whole section of what? Howard Baker must have got that done. He was ol' Ev's son-in-law.
Well.....just “Buck Fuffet!”
