    To say J-Mac has a chip on his shoulder about Obama would be the understatement of the century.

    Almost anything he says about the man should be taken with a metric ton of salt...

    I just don't understand why J-Mac hates the free market and private wealth so much, that he criticises a billionaire (which, as we all know billionaires are Americas greatest resource ) for investing his money in a company.

    "Connected to" Obama donations?

    What, like someone who has a checking account with them wrote a check to the Obama campaign? What are you suggesting is illegal about what is going on? What evidence do you have?

    I believe that if this were done by any two other actors other than Barry, and his bud, warren, the ftc may have something to say.

    You can't even weave together a conspiracy theory that passes the belly laugh test.

    What are you talking about? How does Warren Buffett investing his own money in Bank of America relate to campaign donations? Warren Buffett may be rich, but last I checked the FDIC and the US Treasury Department had a lot more cash to prop up failing banks than Buffett does.

    in order to make a quick, near miraculous profit in the millions that others wouldn't have been privy to on their best day?
    Two points here: Buffett is a long term investor. If you knew anything about his investing strategy, you'd see that he doesn't CARE about making "quick, near miraculous profits." That's not his style. Now that he made his investment in BoA, he'll keep his money there for years. Over the time scale on which Buffett invests, the one-day stock jump will be nearly irrelevant to Buffett's profit or loss.

    And second of all, the fact that the market responded favorably indicates that it AGREED with Buffett's assessment that BoA isn't a lost cause now that it has Buffett's money behind it. So what exactly are you suggesting he did wrong?

    I think it stinks of insider trading,
    Do you even know what insider trading is?

    and corruption within the WH.
    Since your conspiracy theory is apparently too elaborate for us dummies to even grasp what you're accusing them of, perhaps you should just spell it out. What exactly do you think that Buffett and/or Obama did that was shady? Please give us the entire narrative rather than just vague statements like "insider trading and corruption."

    Nonsense. I have been consistantly conservative in my posting for over five years now. My concerns about Obama should come as no surprise to anyone. The fact that you and boo seem to want to personally attack me for that, not only highlights the utter weakness of your defense of that failure of a president, but also shows a lack of personal character that one can only conclude is an illness among hard core liberals today. Seek help friend.



    If we can't find a way to disagree, and debate about our different views, then I would ask just why the Hell are you here? One reason could very well be only to troll. Are you nothing but a troll boy?

    Five long years of unrelenting whining about the evil libruls. Constancy is not the same as consistency, but either are only a good thing if you are correct in the first place.
