George Soros Totally Bailed On Democrats This Election

George Soros has been the primary political bogeyman for more extreme wings of the Republican party for some time now.
The fascination first began in 2004 when Soros pledged $25.5 million to groups dedicated to removing then-President George W. Bush from office, including MoveOn.org, America Coming Together, and the Center for American Progress.
Those efforts obviously failed, but they also cemented the billionaire hedge fund manager in the conservative psyche as the man bankrolling liberal causes. Rumors abound about his true motivations, and have spawned a cottage industry of conspiracy theories about how Soros is attempting to influence American politics with his enormous fortune.
But here's the weird thing: He's not. Not this election, at least.
In the 2012 election, when Citizens United has made unlimited donations more possible than ever, Soros has been very, very quiet at the time when Democrats arguably need him most.
Democratic fundraising, especially at the SuperPAC level, is way down this year, while Republican "dark money" donors like Sheldon Adelson have pledged unlimited millions to the fight.
After the Democrats lost in 2004, Soros helped found and fund The Democracy Alliance, which funnels money to Democratic causes. He largely sat out the 2008 election, but did give $35 million in 2009 to aid underprivileged children in New York state, and $1 million in 2010 to a group trying to legalize marijuana in California. Most of his political cash has toward promoting democracy in Eastern Europe through his Open Society Institute.
So far in 2012, his single largest contribution has been $1 million to American Bridge 21st Century PAC, a Super PAC run by Media Matters founder David Brock, which primarily focuses on opposition research.

My guess is that he already got his money’s worth out of his previous donations. No need to spend any more when they will do it for free...
He gets a liberal either way. Why pay for an outcome that is already certain?
Anyone got a tissue to lend them ? BOOO ! HOOO ! HOOO !
Like the Brazilian off-shore oil bonanza.
But the truth is this article is a lie. George is helping the swine.
Exactly! He got a staggering growth in our deficit, damaged relations with our allies and Obamacare. What more could he want?
He has everything in place for his next move but timimg is the key to his treachery.

If you believe THAT!.. you’re dumber than a box of rocks.. or a democrat..
Sorry for being redundant..
“If you believe THAT!.. youre dumber than a box of rocks.. “
Boxes of rocks everywhere resent that comparison.
Soros likes Mitt.
Soros? Bailout on Dems? I highly doubt it.
Not what I read. Soros is now handing out the bribes again. How old is this nazi-collaborating POS anyway? Why isn’t he in hell where he belongs?
” but did give $35 million in 2009 to aid underprivileged children in New York state, and $1 million in 2010 to a group trying to legalize marijuana in California.”
Ironically, or not, many of those kids are underprivileged due to their parent(s) drug habits.
He did not get to become an evil multi-trillionaire by being stupid. He is not gonna go down in flames by hitching his wagon to an incompetent bumbler like Obozo.
I think it’s about time for this Jewish Nazi to drop dead.
All according to the plan.
How else can you further screw up USofA? He doesn’t get to vote, does he? An Honorary vote that’s counted Gazillions times?
Isn’t Soros’ company counting the vote?
What else does he need to do?
