The super-wealthy Marxist-Capitalist hypocrite George Soros is probably going to let down a few lefties with this throwing in of the towel:

George Soros, the billionaire financier who was an energetic Democratic donor in the last several election cycles but is sitting this one out, is not feeling optimistic about Democratic prospects.
[...]
Asked if the prospect of Republican control of one or both houses of Congress concerned him, he said: “It does, because I think they are pushing the wrong policies, but I’m not in a position to stop it. I don’t believe in standing in the way of an avalanche.”

Translation: You losers aren’t worth throwing away any more money on.

Soros usually prefers to go the media route when it comes to what he finances politically anyway:

null

null

This doesn’t mean Soros is out of politics this year. He’s currently teaming up with Team Obama to help discredit and/or bring down the US Chamber of Commerce, which is one reason why he’ll be watching the GOP avalanche from the sideline.

    Soros just knows "when not to be on the wrong side of a trade" that's all. Never ask a question you don't know the answer to and all that?

    My only surprise is that it took until 3 weeks before the election before anyone in the media even mentioned Soros' "curious absence" in all of this. ( Not that he wasn't getting "HEY… buddy" phone calls )

    *A "HEY… buddy" call is normally reserved for when one is moving and needs to borrow a truck/strong back or in need of employment. In this case I hope it's both.

    So true… he didn't make all those bones by making bad bets.

    M_W, +1 100% !!

    G.S. is one scary dude !! As an extra-typical lib., whatever he says or is said about him by the msm is almost bankable as completely opposite of the truth !! Of course he`s "out of the way of the avalanche", but very much "hands on" behind the scenes !!

    Doug, your translation is soooooo true !!! Except I would strike the word "more" !

    And hey, don't get me wrong, as long as Soros was perfectly willing to remain indifferent and in the background ( who the hell am I to say anything? )

    'Other'… dense observations best kept to one's self:

    "Little Johnny hasn't had a bad report card/detention in some time?"

    "It's been so long since my wife has gone shopping, I can't remember… 'when'?"

    Dumb stuff like that.

    He's pretty vile politically, but Soros didn't get rich backing losers… his type never fight to the end in a difficult struggle based on priniciple.

    He's all about riding waves, not stopping them- like all great gamblers, Soros knows when to quit.

    ReaganiteGOPer,

    Right, "The trend is your friend". Certainly he has enough money to throw at lost causes if he were to chose so, but WHY!?

    I would ask Doug though as an aside, if he strategically reserved comment on GS's lack of involvement until it would be too late for him to ramp up his media-manipulation machine? Just curious.

    It’s been America’s bad luck that the nazi Soros didn’t do like other rich old goats and simply take up wine,women or song.

    What a fine football weekend it was for Spartan,Lion and Titan!

    To all of you fellow progeny of European despoilers…Happy Columbus Day!
