Watching this live at something interesting happened at around 8:10 AM EST. The instudio gang was talking about the Republican candidates and one host mentioned Huckabee and then I swear on of the other hosts said 'Ron' and then stopped and another host said something about 'staying PC'. Then they had a segment w/ the 'on-air editor' and he was not pleased about the prior discussion. Did anyone else see this? I wonder if the show is archived? I'm sure the Buffet portions will be.

"PC" means "Politically Correct".

I was listening to that particular show on XM radio, but was also flipping to other channels and missed that comment.

Please if anybody TiVo'd this, please YouTube it. If you don't know how, ask for help here.

I liked one viewer email that Buffet answered. The emailer said with all you know about business and the economy how can you be a democrat. Buffet talked a bit about his father who served in the Congress. The Sr Buffet was an Old Right republican and rather libertarian in his views. He was a friend of Murray Rothbard so I don't have to tell you that he would have had a lot of agreement with Ron Paul. Warren said that he and his dad would sit around the table and talk about how if FDR had his way there might not be much of America left. Buffet finally said that it was the democrats position on Civil Rights in the 60's that swayed him and that the democrats seem care more for those who get the 'short stick' in life.

Wow, for such an insightful investor his political philosophies are pretty superficial. Whichever party stood up for a group of people 40 years ago apparently deserves his undying support.

It's also strange to see such a symbol of capitalism espouse such a socialist mindset (not strange because it's unusual, but more strange because it's contradictory).

I also thought it was funny that he said that the various foundations to which he donated, would do a better job with his money than if he had just given it all to the government. Apparently socialists don't even believe the government is effective. I'm not sure who/what they think IS effective, but apparently the hierarchy is as follows: charitable organizations>government>citizens. Or something like that. Next time Buffett's taking questions, I'll try to clear that one up (as if my question might make it through).

WTF would Buffett know about getting the short stick in life?

Buffet is a Very Smart snake like Speaker , When he says that he is a dem because they care more for those who "get the short end of the stick" What he really means is "IF it were not for Big Gov't Dems he would not have made the billions that he made" Why? Because if Buffet didnt have the Demorat Socialst machine telling people that "Your owed an education and a pension" then the majority of the population would wake up and start making money for themselves and learn the tricks of the trade in wallstreet. But since the majority dem population buy the "big govt/nanny state lies" then Guys like Warren Buffet can only thank them for that because they are making sure that he dont have to compete with all those people for that big slice of pie that he buys for pennies of the dollar ,when he and other Big whigs can scare the mass's into dumping a stock with a forced correction . Buffet and all billionaires in wallstreet owe there luxery filled lives to Democrats because they have made the population Docile and addicted to "entitlements" LOL!!!!!

IF Kudlow Says "I believe that Freemarket Capitalism is the best path to prosperity" Then Buffet who agree's with that but hides it would say Something blunt in his own mind like

"FDR style welfare state has made me billions of dollars and is the best path to prosperity for those that "sell socialism" to the mass's"

This video is from right after the conversation I wrote about. In the video
Charlie Gaspirino says 'I loved that last conversation. No Comment, by the way. Ha Ha Ha.'

Watch for the discussion of the Republican candidates at the end of the segment. I captured the audio but I can't do the video. It really looks like some frames were cut when the one guy says 'Ron Paul'. Let me know what you think.

Does anybody know how to convert a *.dpd file to a more common file for uploading to YouTube? With this help we will have the entire video.

Thanks.

Did you also hear at the very end?: "The pollsters didn't tell us we need to do that". What !! The POLLSTERS TELL THEM WHAT TO DO ???

I'm not a conspirationalist, but with all the mumbling and back pedaling these guys were trying to do as soon as "Ron Paul" was mentionned makes it clear something is going on.

I'm sure you all remember how Jim Cramer changed his tune about Ron Paul so drastically. He was totally enamored with him on the first interview and a couple of weeks later practically denied his existance.

Does anybody know who is making the documentary about Ron Paul's exclusion from the media? This guy needs to see this clip.

I can't wait for one of these media guys to defect with a DVD full of incriminating e-mails, memos, meeting recordings.

Just can't wait! It's going to happen. It's too obvious.
