Lately, like at a recent lunch with Steve Schwarzman, who has likened Obama to Hitler, Greene’s been trying another tactic. Now I appeal to them selfishly, he says. Don’t you realize that if you don’t take care of this kid when they are 10 years old, you’ll take care of them when they are 20 and 100 instead? We just have to pay a little more taxes. It’s not going to kill us. You buy car insurance. Why not buy some democracy insurance?’ People think that Obama is this leftist, socialist guy, he says. But I don’t think they understand what people can go for when they are at the end of their line.
