George Soros: Kerry Sucked [Ace]
— 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.

More... Just One Minute on the everlong quest to get John Kerry to sign his form 180, releasing his military records.

You must read the post, if only for the "LAST LAUGH" update at the end.

1 Hey, at least Soros is confirming that his whole campaign was just an anti-Bush one, since he's clearly not pro-Kerry.

3 Yes, great admission by Soros re: Kerry the Candidate. I wonder what a search of his supporting quotes would turn up? I'm betting as big a flipper as Kerry.

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?

4 I'm confused by the title of this post. Did Ace meet Kerry at Sundance? And, if so, why is it any of George Soros's business? They're consenting adults, and it's not like they're trying to adopt a child. At least as far as I know.

5 Soros is just letting Kerry and any remaining supporters know that he should drop any ideas of running in 2008. Look for him to name who his private democrat party is running real soon, after all he said it's his, bought and paid for. He's lining up his team, he's picked Dean for head coach, now he needs a quarterback.

6 Boy, that's a bummer. All those millions wasted. Soros would've been better off running Carrot Top, and using the savings to buy Uruguay, or Chicklets, or something.

How sad.

Cheers,

8 Hey Dave,

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'.

Never mind.
