Maybe he should have got down off his horse and tried to help the country by accepting the job, if he's such a great economist, instead of trying to make a political statement.
Sounds like some assumptions here....
i get it! you just have to blindly side with the doom 'n gloomers (perhaps its the cool thing to do) and will believe them over the 2nd richest person in the world and act like he has no clue what he's talking about.
you expect him to be all "rah rah" and blow smoke up peoples ass when he is addressing all his shareholders?
that is not what a CEO does and that is not what a good leader does. when peoples lives, investemts, and well being are on the line, they want the truth. not a load of bullshit.
this is why bush failed when he got on that aircraft carrier and yelled "rah, rah... the war is over and has been won".
its obvious you dont buy buffett as a credible source. tell you what...
the next time you wake up and put on the fruit of the looms, hop into your car insured by GEICO, drive through the wells fargo to make a withdrawl, and go get an ice cream at dairy queen... think to yourself "holy shit! buffett's company owns all of this. maybe he does know a thing or 2 about the economy."
I can say this too, heck anyone could... again 'out on a limb' he is not.
yes, you can say this too. what will that get you? 3 or four rep hits on this board? buffett can say it infront of 35,000 of his investors (with many more listening and following along and he has national influence.
dont say you havent been told. i'll take the word of real life intelectuals and continue to laugh at all the doom n gloomers who think their opinions on blogs make them internet or media savants.
put your money where your mouth is. you say you can go out on a limb, so lets hear what you really think that contradicts an expert.
