So old Warren knows exactly how fascism and crony capitalism can cement his name in history.
Thousands of policy payments arriving in Omaha every day provides a steady supply of cash for Warren to buy the companies lost to inheritance taxes.
The biggest dupes of 2012 were those of us who trusted the Republicans to do the right thing.
Not just that.
Look at how he came out with his Goldman Sachs deal.
Just a coincidence of course, that he was a pal of Paulson and that the company was declared to be a bank shortly after his stock purchase.
He could not possibly have known ahead of time.
Some people are just sooo lucky.
These guys are not capitalists although there is another word that starts with “C” that more accurately describes them.
Put simply Warren Buffett is the classic example of a fascist pig.
Then I listened to one of his books on tape and learned about his politics and his secrets to success. Now, I see his skill set and success differently.
He's been a decent investor, but he's far better political player using political knowledge and connections to his advantage, than he is a financial guru.
The dupe of the year is Karl Rove, who for eight years let Bush and the GOP get blamed for everything and credit for nothing. Karl Rove, who ran all the messaging of the 2012 campaign, as head of all the Super PAC money, and agreed that UE was really 8%, never countered the notion that Obama inherited a “mess from Bush” - and never ever picked one hard ideological fight.
Or maybe the dupes are the billionaires on our side who trusted Rove with their hundreds of millions......
