When the Super-Rich Cry, "Class Warfare!"

"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 backwards for them - simply remember the concessions on health care 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.

But I suppose in comparison to the Republicans’ even lower groveling for the corporate table leavings, it’s conceivable the President and his associates might seem to some of those residing in the economic stratosphere like wild-eyed populists. For one, that National Labor Relations Board of his is being too, too terribly annoying.

Some interesting reading…
