Warren Buffett calls in to have some fun, but Jack doesn’t catch the joke. What time does Buffett get out of bed in Nebraska to be calling in at this time of the morning?

As Warren noted (and has now been confirmed), this was in reference to Welch's former career:

It appears that Jack had a lapse in memory - and old Warren is just as quick as always, even at 5 in the morning!

Mr. Buffett, can you give President Obama some friendly advice about how to negotiate. I don't think people are going to enjoy another 4 years of the President's style. Just a thought

A thought Mr. President, why not put Jack Welch or Mitt Romney in charge of infrastructure.

* I'm so dreading 4 more years of a grind
