First, Obama's business dealings have been dishonest (buying real estate way below market value from influence-peddler Tony Rezko - who now sits in jail for these practices). So how does Buffett continually tout his saint-like honesty at Berkshire when he works for/with someone like Obama? Buffet knows Obama now needs housing to recover. So Buffett has been saying he'd buy houses for over a year (while housing declines). Obama now needs gold to remain stable so the Fed can continue to print money without gold throwing a flag on the field. So, Buffett now goes on a road show to say we shouldn't buy gold. All this while Buffett acts like a peacock, receiving medals in White House ceremonies. Buffett is becoming unmoored from his principles. A sure sign to get out of hedge funds - and now Buffett-managed investments.
