George Soros Profile in NY Times

Comments (3)

The NY Times redeems itself (after the lousy blogging article) with And for His Next Feat, a Billionaire Sets Sights on Bush – a good profile on George Soros.

I have been fascinated with Soros for a while and found his recent book The Bubble of American Supremacy very thought provoking. Soros’s activity and character has been aggressively attacked by the Republican National Committee which confirms that he’s risen about the noise level.

Soros’s tag line – which he stays on message about as effectively as George W. Bush does in and after his state of the union address when he defines the Axis of Evil – is “I have come to the conclusion that the greatest contribution I can make to the values that I hold would be to contribute to the defeat of George W. Bush in 2004.”

According the the NY Times, Soros’s major contributions to date include $10 million to Americans Coming Together, $2.5 million to MoveOn.org, and $300,000 to Campaign for America’s Future.

Look for a lot more from Soros as the campaign unfolds.

    Poll: Many Americans Still Unsure Whom To Vote Against

    WASHINGTON, DC?According to Gallup Poll results released Monday, 6 percent of Americans are still undecided about whether to vote against President Bush or Democratic challenger John Kerry in November’s presidential election.

    “At first, I was really leaning toward voting against Kerry, because the way he tried to hide his ambivalence about his military service made him seem like a political operator,” poll participant and Trenton, NJ resident Amber Barthelme said. “But then, the Bush Administration’s mishandling of the Iraqi prisoner-abuse scandal got me thinking that there’s a lot to not like about the current administration. It’s almost impossible to decide which side I don’t want to be on.”

    According to the poll, 46 percent of the registered voters surveyed would vote against Bush if the election were held tomorrow, while 45 percent said they were ready to vote against Kerry. Factoring in the 2 percent margin of error, the two candidates are essentially deadlocked in the race to determine which candidate America doesn’t support.
