Buffett Talks GE Investment on CNBC

Shortly after the announcement, Buffett showed up on the business network of the company he had just invested in. CNBC’s Becky Quick interviewed Buffett by phone just after 2pmET.

“I’m up here in an airplane, and I hope it’s being powered by GE engines,” joked Buffett as he began the interview.

Buffett also talked about the potential bailout. “I think we’ll get action,” he said of Congress’ plans. “If we don’t, I’ll have done some dumb things.”
