Billionaire George Soros intensifies his anti-Bush campaign
WASHINGTON, Sept 28 (AFP) - Billionaire financier George Soros is putting his wealth and personal reputation on the line in his quest to convince voters to cast ballots against George W. Bush in the November 2 presidential election.

Soros, 74, announced Tuesday that he was traveling to 12 US cities -- including stops in the swing states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Iowa and Florida -- starting October 5 for meetings with the public and local news media.

He has also penned a pamhlet tited "Why we must not re-elect President Bush" and is mailing copies to two million voters.

Five weeks ahead of the November 2 US presidential vote, Soros, a Hungarian born US citizen, also announced he was launching an website (www.GeorgeSoros.com) where he promises to answer questions by undecided voters.

He said he was running two-page ads in several US newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal, on Wednesday.

"This is the most important election of my lifetime," Soros writes in the brochure. "I have never been heavily involved in partisan politics but these are not normal times. President Bush is endangering our safety, hurting our vital interests and undermining American values. That is why I am sending this message."

Soros adds: "I have been demonized by the Bush campaign but I hope you will give me a hearing."

Republican House of Representative Speaker Dennis Hastert suggested in a late August television interview that Soros may be making his billions off illegal-drug related activities. Soros wrote to Hastert demanding an apology.

"There is no way to avoid a smear campaign," said Soros, speaking at a press conference in Washington on Tuesday. "It`s in full swing. All I can do is get my message out and try to have people listen."

The event was barely over when the Republican National Committee issued a statement blasting Soros.

"The only explanation for the Daddy Warbucks of the Democratic Party . . . to step out from behind the curtain 35 days before the election is his obvious concern for his investment in (Democratic presidential candidate) John Kerry," the statement read, an allusion to the 12 million dollars that Soros has contributed to the Kerry campaign.

"I am not a politician," a subdued Soros told reporters. "I am totally out of my normal role standing here. Nobody would get far with my advice."

Soros blasted the US-led war on Iraq, conducted by the Bush administration as an extension of the "war on terror," which he says makes the United States less safe, not safer.

But Soros was unprepared when asked if he thought the more than 1,000 US soldiers who died fighting in Iraq gave their lives in vain.

"It`s a tremendous responsability for president Bush," said Soros. There was a pause as he chose his words carefully. "It`s a tremendous tragedy," he added.

Soros also said that he was "eager to reach Republicans who might vote for Bush out of party loyalty," and intends to "reach out to the business community, especially among the traditional conservatives."

According to Soros there are many Republicans "who are quite distressed about the policies of this administration."

Retired army general Wesley Clark, earlier in the year a candidate for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, introduced Soros at the event.

Clark spoke on behalf of a group called "Diplomats and Military Commanders for Change," which will join Soros for parts of the tour.

"Billionaire financier George Soros is putting his wealth and personal reputation on the line in his quest to convince voters to cast ballots against George W. Bush in the November 2 presidential election. "

Notice the wording... "to convince voters to cast ballots against George W. Bush ". Just another "I hate Bush" Democrat with no viable options.

I hope that socialist asshole spends MILLIONS trying to get rid of Bush.

He won't be able to deduct one fucking CENT off of his taxes in a losing effort.

Bush will win...and win big. Soros and the rest of the libs just don't get it. Their socialist message just doesn't resonate with the American electorate like it used to.

He made his big fortune suing the tobacco industry, probably with his financing his left wing agenda in mind. I was told his cut alone of the tobacco settlement was over a billion dollars. This guy is no friend of this country or our constitution. Neither is the democratic party anymore.

ummm-kaay... so, the DNC never heard of you during the Clinton years?

Shall we review the disclosure lists?


Soros adds: "I have been demonized by the Bush campaign but I hope you will give me a hearing."


No... the kettle's just being called black, comrade.


"There is no way to avoid a smear campaign," said Soros, speaking at a press conference in Washington on Tuesday. "It`s in full swing. All I can do is get my message out and try to have people listen."


Of course, Soros'd NEVER be the first to engage in smear tactics. After all, he has nothing to do with the content or direction of Moveon.org, right? (GWB/Hitler morph, anybody?)

Gee... McCain-Feingold really did a lot of good getting rid of the influence of the evil dollar in American politics, huh?


"I am not a politician," a subdued Soros told reporters. "I am totally out of my normal role standing here. Nobody would get far with my advice."


Well, people are heeding it... or at least jumping on the bandwagon you've paid to have pulled around the media.


Soros also said that he was "eager to reach Republicans who might vote for Bush out of party loyalty," and intends to "reach out to the business community, especially among the traditional conservatives."

Really.. I suppose that the Gun control republicans will love you... let's look at the following:

(from http://www.nrapublications.org/ff/goerge_soros.asp )


Soros largely funded the Million Mom March, and bankrolled malicious law-suits against the American firearm industry, including the NAACP suit that claimed law-abiding manufacturers and dealers were responsible for the acts of armed criminals in New York who obtained their firearms through criminal commerce.
Soros also specifically targets NRA members by pumping megabucks into the Campaign for a Progressive Future, which is touted as an “organization that supports candidates opposed by the National Rifle Association.”
And Soros, to implement his global solution for the future of American gun owners, even imported to our shores the woman singularly responsible for the confiscatory long-gun ban in Australia.

Retired army general Wesley Clark, earlier in the year a candidate for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, introduced Soros at the event.

Clark spoke on behalf of a group called "Diplomats and Military Commanders for Change," which will join Soros for parts of the tour.



Let me guess... another soros funded group, like vets for Kerry?

Soros made his billions trading currency on the open market. He has nothing to do with tobacco settlements, though many of those same lawyers are donating to the Democratic party.

Soros is also a supporter of several anti-gun groups - in fact without his support for the last ten years, there would probably be no anti-gun movement left as he props up several in this country and more in England and Australia.

I just read an NRA article about Soros. It was unsettling. I could have swornI read that he headed up the legal team that sued the tobacco industry. Perhaps they meant he funded some of it. At any rate, he's made some powerful enemies. Could we have been all wrong about one of the Clintons being the anit-christ? Is it Soros? He seems like he can make money grow from the ground.

I am really getting tired of these billionaire foreigners coming to our country and fucking things up. It is time we limit what we allow foreigners to influence here. Between Soros and Kerry's ugly ass wife they have way to much power.

Just the opposite. Kerry is a puppet for this Eurotrash Communist.

Soros is a very powerful man, he was behind the Asian Currency Crisis and the Mexican Curency Crisis of the mid 90s. A hated figure in countries like Thailand, Argentina and Georgia, where he's brought governments down and ruined millions of middle class people with his currency manipulations. I don't think Putin likes him much either. A really bad person, total left-wing one-world socialist elitist.
