Video: Warren Buffett knocks Obama over windfall profits tax on oil

Liberal, Obama supporter, capitalist. To paraphrase the Messiah’s own famous line about war, Buffett’s not against all taxes, he’s just against dumb taxes, like ones leveled according to some arbitrary definition of what constitutes a “windfall.” Consider this Obama’s answer to McCain’s gas tax holiday: Foolish economically, but too politically appealing to pass up. At last check, the Straight Talk Express had taken a welcome detour from this position. I wonder if gas prices creep much higher this summer whether he won’t detour back.
