"'There's class warfare, all right,' Warren Buffett told the New York Times two years before the 2008 crash, 'but it's my class, the rich class, that's making war, and we're winning.' I’ll say. Which makes the whining of the moneyed -- in addition to the winning -- all the more annoying. Especially after the Obama White House has bent over backward for them -- simply remember the concessions on healthcare and financial reform, for two -- and all too often has vassaled itself to the knights of the Fortune 500, kowtowing all the way to the bank where they keep the big campaign contributions."
