IS NEWSGNOME WRONG ABOUT BUFFETT BEING A LIBERAL

You Decide....is Buffett a liberal?

A comment on my blog took exception to the fact that I called Warren Buffet a liberal pointing out that he owns lots of American businesses and his father was a GOP Congressman.

Liberal Salon.com “Politically, he seems to be a liberal. In the late 1960s, he became involved in abortion rights issues and worked to integrate Omaha's segregated country clubs.”

The American Enterprise Online By Bill Kauffman: Congressman Buffett’s son, while revering Pop [his father] as a tower of integrity and honesty, seems not to have inherited the old man’s libertarian streak. Warren Buffett is a liberal Democrat whose favorite political causes are legalized abortion and population control.

When determining a person’s politics....FOLLOW THE MONEY! The following list speaks for itself.
