This is part two of an unofficial transcript of Warren Buffett's three-hour long live appearance on CNBC's Squawk Box this morning, Monday, November 14, 2011. In this section, Buffett talks about the possibility of more quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve and says GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney has the best chance of beating President Barack Obama in the 2012 election.
We found several exaggerations and misstatements in the latest Republican presidential candidates’ debate.
Republican candidates will challenge President Barack Obama on foreign policy, an issue they have given scant attention in recent weeks, in a debate Saturday night.
A look at where the GOP candidates stand, after Wednesday's debate, with Keith Boykin, The Daily Voice editor; Terry Jeffrey, CNS editor-In-chief, and Steve Moore, Wall Street Journal, senior economic writer.
Discussing the policy behind the politics in the GOP debate, with Mort Zuckerman, Boston Properities CEO, and which candidate walk away the clear winner, with Jared Bernstein, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities; Michael Steele, former RNC Chairman.
There were three winners in the CNBC debate: Herman Cain, Mitt Romney, and Newt Gingrich. Gov. Rick Perry was the obvious loser because of his memory lapse.
Rick Perry moved into spin control Thursday after a stumble during the Republican presidential debate, and insisted it won't force him out of the presidential race.
Clearly Romney is the favorite for the Republican nomination, says David Walker, Comeback America Initiative founder/president/CEO, who adds that Romney's plans for taxes is more reflective of political reality. Walker also discusses why he will not run for Senate in Connecticut.
CNBC's Scott Cohn fact-checks the candidate's statements from last night's debate.
Donald Trump, Trump Organization chairman/president, shares his thoughts on what candidates should do when they don't have the answers during a live debate. Trump says Rick Perry's moment of not naming the third agency he plans to close down did not help his campaign.
CNBC's John Harwood has the highlights from last night's Republican debate, including Rick Perry stumbling over his own plan to eliminate agencies and Herman Cain side stepping character issues.
Discussing who won Wednesday's GOP debate, with Sara Fagen, former White House political director; Keith Boykin, democratic strategist; Phil Musser, New Frontier Strategy; and CNBC's Larry Kudlow and Carl Quintanilla.
Another student thought the candidates had a lot of great things to say. He's pro-life and he wants to know more about what the strong candidates have to say about social issues.
"We had a stumble of style but not substance," says Ray Sullivan, Rick Perry's communications director, after Rick Perry flubbed over naming the three federal agencies he wants to shut down.
Dave from Michigan said the debate was interesting and Mitt Romney stood out for his overall breadth. He believes Romney will bring leadership and real world experience to the position.
Ryan says it was important to see candidates with principles. He doesn't believe Herman Cain got enough air time and Rick Perry is "Texas toast."
Herman Cain highlights three major things which are wrong with Dodd-Frank regulation. "Number one, it doesn't provide oversight for Fannie and Freddie Mac," he says. "The two other big problems with Dodd-Frank, are Dodd and Frank.'
James says he thought Huntsman was pretty good, but he wanted to hear more. Rick Perry didn't remember some things he needed to know. Gingrich showed a lot of good things, but Romney was best.
Rep. Michele Bachmann says America has got to stop enriching China with our money, and we do that by stop borrowing from them, and stop spending money we don't have.
Gingrich says the U.S. is going to have to find ways to dramatically raise the pain level for Chinese cheating.
