I still don’t much care what Warren Buffett has to say about national tax policy, but the news that Warren Buffett really isn’t quite on the same page as the White House is pretty hilarious:
No Buffett hasn’t repudiated Obama, but he’s clearly not gotten the memo either, which indicates the White House probably shouldn’t have invested to the hilt in the “Buffett rule.” You live by folksy anecdotes by avuncular billionaires, you can die by them too.
This is just another example of how the White House communications are so different than a campaign’s. This White House keeps mistaking things for shinola that aren’t shinola. AttackWatch! “Hey, let’s get Ron Suskind to write a book!” Etc.
