A Source Tells The New Yorker That George Soros 'Feels Hurt' By Obama

Billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros, who is known for speaking publicly about the economy and making big donations to liberal causes, has been disappointed by Obama "both politically and personally", an unnamed Soros confidant told The New Yorker's Jane Mayer.

Here's why...

From the New Yorker: (emphasis ours)

...When Soros wanted to meet with Obama in Washington to discuss global economic problems, Obama’s staff failed to respond. Eventually, they arranged not a White House interview but, rather, a low-profile, private meeting in New York, when the President was in town for other business. Soros found this back-door treatment confounding. “He feels hurt,” a Democratic donor says.

“They pissed on him,” a confidant says. “He didn’t want a ******* thing! He didn’t want a state dinner, or a White House party—he just wanted to be taken seriously.”

Soros declined to comment for the New Yorker's article.

Glenn Beck has done an excellent job of connecting Obama to George Soros, "Spooky Dude."

This may be a ploy to distance Obama from this POS!

Soros knows how Rev. Wright, after 20 years, feels.

Underneath that Obama bus is getting awfully crowded.

Since Soros owns Obama (and the DNC) he should be satisfied with that. He is the man behind the curtain we should pay no attention to.

O was right to keep his meeting low profile. Its one thing to bow to a Saudi king, I mean, who doesn’t? But it would be really bad optics to be caught kissing Soros’ ring.

Soros is going nowhere. He owns Obama. He’ll get his pound of flesh out of him.

email:
But Barack accepts money from businessmen and subsides them”.

Yes I know – “Bought and Paid For” as the book says.

Except “Lenin”did the same thing (with Dr Hammer and co) – as he said “the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them”. The way he justifies his corruption to himself is easy – it is Saul Alinsky “the ends justify the means”. Barack taught that for many years.

One accepts money from businessmen – one repays them with government subsidies.

But it is legit – because it is the “road to power”.

Then, when the time is right, one turns on the corrupt businessmen who helped one into power. (Sorry, George!)

First one organises trouble on the streets (economic chaos helps with this) then one takes advantage of it – and fundemenatlly transforms society.

“Bottom up, top down, inside out”.

Agreed. Whenever you read one of these "inside baseball" stories about a dude as big a Soros from "a source" the chances are 50/50 it's deliberate misinformation. Georgie pays people good money to write stories just like this. PR.

Soros also said he likes Romney.

Soros has an agenda.

I don’t believe anything that comes from Soros’ lying lips.

Apparently, the puppet master is now the puppet. How deliciously ironic.

Not to worry George, your marxist friend is short, 77 days short.

Absolutely correct. Soros picked the wrong horse to carry his one-world socialist plan across the finish line in America. I suspect the old guy is not only not use to losing, he hates it! ... (and anyone who is the cause of it).

Yes, I'll bet he's convinced Obama screwed it all up for him and his desires.  He's probably right too.  LOL


Thanks for the donations.  Lets finish this off.  If you haven't already, please click and pencil yourself in.

It’s a little difficult to take him seriously. Commodities are set to go high for quite a while. As for the stock market, when it goes down much, revenues (cause), bonds (effect, risk) and pensions (haircuts for bond investors, haircuts for recipients) will eventually follow it to the bottom.

Don’t believe it. Not even for 0.0002 seconds.

Soros dumped all of his holdings in US financial institutions, while Rothschild’s RIT has half their assets in the USD.

We’re being set up again.
