The Financial Godfather of American Liberals Turns 80 Today
HAPPY 80th BIRTHDAY TO UBER-LIBERAL GEORGE SOROS
Liberal Democrat Rob Miller has 370,000+ reasons to be grateful to him
(Columbia, SC – August 12, 2010) In case it isn’t marked on your calendar, this is the birthday of the financial godfather of the modern liberal revival in America. George Soros, the Hungarian-born billionaire and wanna-be U.S. king-maker, turns 80 today.
His fingers are thrust into political pies all across the country, including right here in South Carolina. More on that in a minute.
George Soros is a currency speculator and stock mogul known as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England” and holder of the 29th spot on Forbes magazine’s 2009 list of the world’s richest people. After acquiring more money than the notorious Robber Barons of the late 18th Century ever amassed, he decided to remake America’s political landscape to resemble the socialist culture of the Europe he had left behind.
And he had the money to do, it. too.
So George Soros began writing checks – big hefty checks, to fund an array of ultra-liberal organizations. And he got his leftist buddies to do the same, too. Soros so passionately wanted to defeat President George W. Bush for reelection in 2004 that he called it “a matter of life and death.”
His largesse has rained down countless millions of dollars on ultra-liberal organizations over the past decade.
Soros was an early and enthusiastic backer of MoveOn.org (he gave some $5 million to them in the 2004 campaign alone). MoveOn.org is the very group that has funneled more than $370,000 into liberal Democrat Rob Miller’s congressional campaign here in South Carolina this year.
MoveOn.org owes a lot to George’s generosity. And so does Rob Miller. Because if George Soros hadn’t ponied up millions of dollars to help get MoveOn.org up and running in its early days, the balance of Miller’s campaign bank account would be more than $370,000 lower today.
So on behalf of Rob Miller and his liberal supporters all across America, happy birthday, George! Thanks to you, the Left keeps sprouting a new generation of candidates whose views and values are miles apart from ours.
Oh, and keep the checks coming, will you?
