Warren Buffett favored the bailout *after* he had made a large bet that it would be enacted.

I haven't heard a thing that indicates what his view was before that bet.


I have put a fair amount of money into BKH over the last 3 months while I mostly moved to cash. I did not do this based on the image of WB as a kindly and wise old man. My mental image of him is of an old scar-faced pirate constantly checking the latest routes of galleons, the timing of gold shipments, and the going price of virgins.

Great investment, like Queen Elizabeth's in Sir Francis Drake.
