Soros says Obama victory means "more sensible politics"
reuters.com ^ | November 07, 2012

Posted on 11/06/2012 10:13:10 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe

illionaire investor George Soros said late Tuesday that the projected re-election of President Barack Obama will open "the door for more sensible politics."

Soros, who has contributed mightily to Democratic causes and supported many liberal and progressive groups, told Reuters: "I'm delighted that President Obama has won. The American electorate has rejected extremist positions."

In an email exchange, Soros, who was in Budapest, said he hopes "the Republicans in office will make better partners in the coming years."

He noted that cooperation between America's political parties is "urgently" needed to deal with the so-called fiscal cliff - the yearend combination of expiring Bush-era tax reductions and steep cuts in domestic spending.

Soros, 82, rose to fame and fortune two decades ago on a now-historic trade in which he took on the Bank of England and shrewdly wagered on a devaluation of the British pound.

By all means George - tell us exactly what those “more sensible policies are....

Give us a few examples....

As usual with a lefty he can’t. Or won’t.

The Orwellian reality of calling Obama or anything Obama has done “sensible” is obscene to the point of being a mockery of sanity itself. Soros will dance with the grim reaper soon enough, but we must suffer his ponderous and global crimes now. This is not justice. Only God ever really brings that.

Soros should be run out of town, after he has been ‘tarred and feathered”.
His actions have shown that his loyalties regarding this nation are in question.
Since he is a ‘citizen of the world’ , I am sure that Swaziland would be more than willing to accept him .

The demon Soros is giddy because now that his puppet bastard boy has been ‘re-elected’ Soros will make billions in cap and trade trading. The coal miners in PA and VA, and W VA will not be able to buy and sell living on the obamadole, power bills will cause the average household to grow to hate the ‘ruling elite’ and men and women will sink more and more into the sexual degeneracy of using each other because building a family willbe the least desirable way to live out your miserable democrat induced life. Think Detroit-like decay if you doubt the future democrats have arranged for you and yours.

Is there anyway we can send this man a message, simply telling him to shut up and go away?? We need his “sensible” advice like a hole in the head!

My stars! I know what the Scriptures say about wicked people but why is God allowing this man to live??????

So just how does Soros think the fiscal cliff will be prevented? With other people’s money of course, but how?

The reality is they are spreading their coming misery, because they have re-elected an enemy of Coal and MY electric bills will skyrocket as the oppressive regulatory czars of the obama regime attack Coal use. I’m thinking of building a partially buried home that heats with coal in open fireplaces. /s

George Soros is lying. Also he did his level best to steal elections in America for the Dems via his Spanish holding company that has control of most of the voting machines. Massive voting fraud was perpetrated on America.

Read This Report and Weep for America

Google or Bing other reports for yourself: "Soros + voting machines"

I heard all about massive voting machine fraud in certain key states last evening on Coast to Coast AM. But nobody had the courage to name George Soros for the fraud. We need a Congressional Investigation but will never get one. American sheeple have spoken - "Baa Baa Baa" . . .

End of all discussion. 2013 will be when the rubber meets the road. If you are not black or brown or part of the lower elements of society, you have been made irrelevant by popular mandate. The terminally stupid party did its job properly last evening. They are now totally irrelevant to America.

We are now ruled by the same evil banking cabal that owns and controls the Fed. Government for the people and by the people has been replaced by total money politics and corruption. Which makes Ron Paul correct about everything . . .

Look for a major ME crisis to unfold in 2013 with $ 6 + gasoline and violent conflicts erupting all over the world. ' Nuff said on FR.

Once you’re over the “tipping point”, there’s no going back up the cliff...

Might was well tip it all the way over, enjoy the view on the way down, and, oh, don’t forget your parachute.

Meet you at the bottom! We’ll climb back up together (without the dead weight).
