In one of the most revealing interviews with the man who has always been optimistic for a continued prosperous America, Berkshire Hathaway Chairman Warren Buffett, for the first time, appears noticeably fearful about the future of the U.S. economy.
Buffett cult members must have noticed his more-than-usual speech stammer as he searched for the right words in response to questions posed by CNBC’s Becky Quick—who, incidentally, is one of CNBC’s softest of softball interviewers. In contrast, a Buffett interview with Rick Santelli would most likely drop the Dow 1,000 points within the first few minutes of questioning.
There’s little doubt, if you read between the lines of Buffett’s responses to questions from stick-figure journalist Becky Quick, it’s time to head for the hills and buy gold, gun and take up God. The 81-year-old investor had nothing good to say about the U.S. economy—a first for the Orifice of Omaha.
