Well, some disagree. Last August the American Thinker ran an article about the legendary Soros and the left's love affair with the man. Here's the last paragraph:
Soros is an enterprising man and legendary investor. He figured out sooner and better than anyone else how to buy political power and bend politicians to his will. He is not a goody-two-shoes, as partisans on the left try to portray him. He has benefited hugely from leverage, and the best leverage he enjoys is when he "gives" money in ways that are really investments (payoffs, bribes?) in disguise. Shame on Mayer, Rich, and others who hide this history. They also are all but puppets in the hands of George Soros.Read the rest to see some of the unsavory ways Soros makes his money. Love of money is the root of all evils and Soros is a classic example of that truth. By the way, he made mucho bucks off the housing collapse. For most little people, their house is their biggest investment and many lost everything. How do you rationalize that disaster by a man who made billions off it with the image of somebody who cares so much about the little guy? You don't. Soros is a fraud and an exploiter. But unfortunately for him there are no lobbyists at the pearly gates and you can't buy your way into heaven.
