Video: Warren Buffett on Card Check

posted at 1:05 pm on March 9, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Barack Obama made a lot of hay over the support he received from Warren Buffett, one of the richest men in the world and a stock-market savant. Obama used it to show that he held no animus to free markets and private industry. I wonder if Obama is ready to take his advice on Card Check as well? Here’s Buffett today on CNBC:

Card Check would be an unmitigated disaster for the economy even in the best of times. As we reported last week, it’s an exponentially worse disaster during a severe recession.  Even an Obama supporter like Buffett understands that much.

Ben Smith thinks this might be a body blow for Card Check, defining it as an effort to kill secret ballots. Let’s hope.

Powell supporting the Iraq war as it was being fought, but publicly stating that he was against it from the start.

Perhaps, but the fact of the mater is that Powell’s speech at the UN with his presentation of the mobile WMD shows that he was in support of the war prior to its start. It was that speech that pushed many “fence sitters” over to the “good to go” side.
