Billionaire hails Obama win

2012-11-07 07:25

Washington - Billionaire investor George Soros said late on Tuesday that the re-election of President Barack Obama will open "the door for a more sensible politics."

Soros, who has contributed mightily to Democratic causes, told Reuters: "I'm delighted that President Obama has won. The American electorate has rejected extremist positions, opening the door for a more sensible politics.

"Hopefully the Republicans in office will make better partners in the coming years, most urgently in avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff."

    What else would a man say who benefits handsomely from liberal Democratic policies. As he gets richer the debt of the country becomes more and more and it is the sheeple who have to pay it all back to the bankers. America is a lost cause and this is one more nail in its coffin, hammered in by themselves.

      Point: That even though the republicans tried to lie about Obama and his stance, the Jews saw through the lies and continued to supported the campaign financially, and supported him with votes last night - crucial votes that won Obama Florida & Ohio. I was amazed at how low the republican could go on this subject as the support is in actual fact bi-partisan - I am happy that the electorate saw through the BS - and the billionaire & philanthropist Mr Soros is proof that i was correct.

    Sorry to Donald Trump. His canvassing for Mitt Romney was just not effective. Chasing Obama's birth certificate instead of focusing on the relevant issues. But at least He saw the birth certificate.
