Harold Simmons, whom Forbes...

...magazine estimated to be worth $10 billion, died at age 82. His obit in the Times said:

He was one of the largest donors in the 2012 presidential election, giving more than $26.9 million to “super PACs” opposing President Obama, whom he called “the most dangerous American alive” in an interview with The Wall Street Journal because, he said, the president wanted to “eliminate free enterprise in this country.” 

How can someone smart enough to amass all that money say something like that? With the stock market trading at record levels, either President Obama isn't very "dangerous," or doesn't really want to "eliminate free enterprise." Right? Sheesh.
