— Ace Via The New Vintage (who "questions the timing"), George Soros has the long, luxuriously European knives out for Kerry:
Jan. 30 -- 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.''
The Kerry campaign ``tried to emphasize his role as a Vietnam War hero and downplay his role as an anti-Vietnam War hero, which he was,'' said Soros. ``Had he admitted, owned up to it, I think actually the outcome could have been different.''
Once again, The West Wing fallacy: if we just give them old-school neosocialist pacifist liberalism, they'll vote for us.
Nope. It's dishonest as hell, but hiding their actual policies and inclinations is actually their best strategy.
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.''
Right. The elite print media, all the network news organizations, academia, and Hollywood just aren't enough to "get the message out there."
If that's not enough, I quiver to imagine what Soros has in mind.

Also interesting is that Kerry needs to look over his record to make sure it's "clear" before signing the 180. What the hell does that mean?

What's with the 'hummer' comment? Sure, I guess the title of the post might make for some second-grade level chuckles for someone with the maturity of a....oh, you said 'bummer'.
