Billionaire financier/Spooky dude George Soros seems mighty confident that Mitt Romney would be willing to pursue a stimulus program if elected. It's probably not a surprise to suggest that Romney may bow down to Soros, enough people are already suspect of Romney's Progressive past still hanging around. On "Fox News Sunday," Sarah Palin talked of Romney's "evolving Conservatism." But, is he really evolving or is it a good show for a RINO?
Soros was a guest on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" Sunday. Other than Romney, he talked about the economy and Super PACs. Of the Super PACs, he said "This will create an unequal playing field, which will further destroy the political system." He said he was unsure if he would start his own Super PAC for the president. Obama's newly created "Priorities USA Action" was announced by his re-election campaign last Monday. It seems likely that he will start oneÂ—he is one of Obama's biggest supporters.
In 2010, during President Obama's State of the Union speech, he balked at the decision made by the Supreme Court to allow them. He lectured that it opened the "floodgates for special interests." He added, "I don't think American elections should be bankrolled by America's most powerful interests." And, the stern warning, "This isn't just a threat to Democrats. This is a threat to our democracy." Another promise bites the dust. Very convenient if you have a very wealthy group of friends!
When asked about the economy, Soros said the U.S. "shows some signs of revival." He claimed "the Republicans don't want to face elections where Obama can claim to have sort of seen the economy recover." Smiling, he assured, "If the Republicans win actually they'll undergo a miraculous transformation where they discover that actually it wouldn't be so bad if we can afford to have some stimulus." He seemed incredibly confident in his statement. Given his participation in the takedown of so many economies, and his view of America, anything the man says is suspect. When he smiles and predicts the actions of a fairly progressive presidential hopeful, it's downright scary.
When asked about Mitt Romney supporting a stimulus bill, Soros said, "I'm pretty sure that would happen," he paused, then added, "I mean, of course, Obama would like to as well. He may find it more difficult if the Republicans continue to obstruct him." Romney is often described as "Obama lite," most recently by Newt Gingrich. With his political background, particularly with "Romney Care," the nickname is well deserved. Is George Soros is so confident of Romney's future behavior for a reason? It could be as simple as knowing that Romney supports economic stimulus. However, Soros has the money and the influence to motivate a president's behavior, maybe he knows who will play ball?
