In a recent interview, Warren Buffett said he believes patriotic Republicans and Democrats will realize the nation is engaged in an economic war.

"What is required is a commander in chief that's looked at like a commander in chief in a time of war," Buffett said.

Oops, we picked Obama.

Oops, the other guy might not have survived the tenure either.

either choice wouldn't have mattered much. Thats a good view to take though. At least Obama will hopefully get us back some respect from the rest of the world.

He had a long, distinguished career of working with the other side. Obama? Not so much.

I think he meant that Palin would probably have taken over at some point.

If you are not the one looking at him that way, that's your problem, not his. He is definitely taking action - will it work, or even help? I don't know. But at least he is not telling you that the market will play itself out, and all we need to do is keep our hands off of it - that's non-leadership in an event like this.

We all know you hate Obamas ideas, you hate the people in charge now, all that - but just remember that we already had the other side running things and people voted them out, and for change - any change. You have 4 years to generate bullshit, pace yourself.

"Change- any change". This is the statement that made me lose faith in a lot of my fellow 'mericans. It is just sooooooooooooo stupid.

We sure got our change. We've got change spilling out of our asses.
