Soros Says Kerry's Failings Undermined Campaign Against Bush ----- Well Duh!

Jan. 30 (Bloomberg)

Billionaire investor George Soros, the biggest financial contributor to the failed effort to defeat President George W. Bush in November's election, said Democratic challenger John Kerry was a flawed candidate.

Soros, chairman of Soros Fund Management LLC, spent $26 million in last year's campaign that he said was undermined by the candidate he supported.

``Kerry did not, actually, offer a credible and coherent alternative,'' Soros, 74, said yesterday in an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. ``That had a lot to do with Bush being re-elected.''
Most of us figured that out BEFORE the election and without spending a dime.`
`I don't feel it's an investment that's gone bad, because when you stand up for principles you have to do it whether you win or lose,'' Soros said. ``I'm distressed that Bush was re-elected, but I don't feel that I wasted my money.''
Not even when you saw Kerry sitting in the seventh row at the inauguration?
Soros said he also now questions ``what the Democratic party stands for.'' Democrats need to counter ``a very effective conservative message machine,'' he said. ``There really needs to be an alternative.''
And that alternative is? We're all still waiting on that, arn't we? Got a clue for you George S. Your damn party has no alternatives. Just panic and hate and stupidness.
``My conclusion is that America is an open society, the most successful, the most powerful in the world, that doesn't understand the first principle of an open society, namely that we may be wrong,'' he said. ``And as long as we have that position, we are not really qualified to propagate democracy all over the world.''
And your conclusion seems to suck after witnessing the Iraqi elections last night and this morning. Just sit back and watch some democracy propagation going on.
The Bush administration was ``conspicuous by its absence'' at the World Economic Forum, avoiding a growing consensus that much more needs to be done to alleviate world poverty, eradicate disease, and deal with global warming, Soros said.
The United States via capitalism, democracy, freedom, strength, and technical superiority already does more to combat proverty and disease than the rest of the world combined. As for global warming, it is simply doo doo and not worth the cost of plane tickets to the freakin' meeting.
Soros said he's no longer actively investing....
Just as well, considering his amazingly goofy investments trying to defeat President Bush.
