Skybridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci had some piercing words for President Barack Obama at a panel about government police at the Milken Institute’s Global Conference, according to Lawrence Delevingne at Absolute Return.Scaramucci, who was a speaker at the panel, said ‘the president was a disaster and moving America towards socialism.

“He believes in society with a bigger federal government,” said Scaramucci, contending Obama president is putting America on a path to being a “state controlled society” by redistributing wealth from the rich to the poor and continuing to run large deficits.

He warned the U.S. could be headed on a similar path to Greece if the national debt is not reduced. “We have to be more responsible,” said Scaramucci. “The markets will force you into a catastrophe.”

For the record, this isn’t too surprising. Scaramucci is a public supporter of presidential candidate Mitt Romney; he also famously engaged in a duel of words with the President during a town hall in 2010 where he asked Obama to stop whacking the “Wall Street pinata.”
