Tyler Durden's picture

Earlier today Leon Cooperman, founder of Omega Advisors, took some time from his busy schedule of buying stocks, to bash Mike Stinhardt's moment of truth from last week, and to reaffirm his praise at the altar of crony capitalism by defending Warren Buffett. There is little we can add here, suffice to remind readers that the Omega Advisors' "hedge" fund was down by a whopping 36% in 2008 and was one of the worst performing hedge funds in the Great Financial Crisis (GFC), surely knows all about government funded rescues of the economy and those who ride on its coattails... not to mention the ensuing career risk in the absence of one.

Cooperman's attempt at perpetuating the Bailout Quo can be jeered below.
