Soros: I Can’t Stop a Republican ‘Avalanche’

George Soros, the billionaire financier who was an energetic Democratic donor in the last several election cycles but is sitting this one out, is not feeling optimistic about Democratic prospects.

“I made an exception getting involved in 2004,” Mr. Soros, 80, said in a brief interview Friday at a forum sponsored by the Bretton Woods Committee, which promotes understanding of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

“And since I didn’t succeed in 2004, I remained engaged in 2006 and 2008. But I’m basically not a party man. I’d just been forced into that situation by what I considered the excesses of the Bush administration.”

Mr. Soros, a champion of liberal causes, has been directing his money to groups that work on health care and the environment, rather than electoral politics. Asked if the prospect of Republican control of one or both houses of Congress concerned him, he said: “It does, because I think they are pushing the wrong policies, but I’m not in a position to stop it. I don’t believe in standing in the way of an avalanche.”


And the Democrats have the gall to ask if the National Chamber of Commerce is receiving foreign funds to support Republicans! Everyone knows full well George Soros is funnelling money into the Democrat Party. He isn't blowing all his money on a lost cause this time, but he has spent some money on it! Keep in mind that George Soros is NOT really an American citizen in thought, but a foreign national (Hungarian by birth) who says he is a hyphenated Hungarian-American.
