For those readers who claim not to know much about George Soros I suggest you think about his latest comments. This multi-billionaire who has donated millions to defeat George Bush, but little to the needy, yesterday compared Dick Cheney to President Ahmadinejad of Iran. It’s sometimes necessary to exaggerate to emphasize a point, but this is more. It is the overblown rhetoric of the left damning the right and middle of US opinion. Ahmadinejad has said that Israel should be annihilated, who has Dick Cheney commended to genocide? Ahmadinejad has constantly lied to the EU about a positive response to their proposals in which they hope to derail Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons. Of course Cheney has been accused of lying about a variety of things, but those accusations have never been substantiated.
Ahmadinejad is a very astute politician which compares favorably with Dick Cheney. Ahmadinejad is the lap-dog of the Ayatollah Khameni; the left thinks that George Bush is the lap-dog of Dick Cheney. Mr. Soros and his followers, or brethren should get their act together if they are to persuade the general public of their trustworthiness. Recent this column received a comment regarding statements that could not be verified. Well, the use of rhetoric is time honored; but it must have some basis in fact. The accusation was leveled that the right is constantly demonizing the left while the poor left wing victims are merely trying to get the truth out.
Joe Lieberman became a national target in a local election when Soros’ minions poured cash and volunteers on the Lamont campaign. Michael Moore has even threatened the Democrat’s darling, Hillary Clinton with the same fate. Now the left is outraged at Joe because he is running as an independent even though the party abandoned him they expect him to bow to their wish. This is hypocrisy at its lowest.
The average American could care less and doesn’t really follow events closely. This makes it possible for a few energetic voters to rule the rest of the polity. George Soros knows this and with persistence may succeed. Thank goodness he is an octogenarian.
