Media Pandering over Carlyle's Rubenstein

Old and new media ran effusive pieces on The Carlyle Group's David Rubenstein.  Fortune called him the Best of Wall Street, citing several Carlyle bonanza cash-ins 

Fortune may want to share their analysis with Forbes, who couldn't track the impact of those cash-ins on Rubenstein's billions.  HuffPo's Jerry Jasinowki called Rubenstein "one of our nation's most successful investors, as well as an experienced government policy maker."

I would suggest Rubenstein's billions gives him special influence in government policy, whether red or blue led.  It's the New American way.  Mr. Rubenstein, watch out for the Peuparazzi.
