Soros Made Twice as Much Under Obama as Under Bush

Class warfare sure is good for those in the right class with the right connections and the right politicians on their payroll.

In 2008, before a certain Chicago community organizer completed the left’s long march into the institutions of national power, a former Nazi collaborator named George Soros had a mere 11 billion dollars and was a mere 28th on the Forbes 400 list.

Now after a few years of Obama, millions of Americans are out of work, the economy is toast, and George Soros has moved up to No. 15 on the Forbes 400 with a total of 19 billion dollars.

How “natural” of an increase is that? Under Bush, in 2004, Soros was no. 54 on the Forbes 400 with a net worth of 7 billion. Four years later his net worth was up 4 billion. Four years after that it was up 8 billion.

Soros made twice as much under Obama as he did under Bush. He made more money during one term of Obama than his entire net worth in 2004 under Bush.

George Soros, one of the world’s wealthiest financiers and philanthropists, has declared that getting George Bush out of the White House has become the “central focus” of his life, and he has put more than $15m of his own money where his mouth is.

Now think of this as an investment. 15 million to make billions is one of the best investments possible, and George Soros may be a James Bond villain, but he’s also a great investor. Just look at his results.

    What to do with this 0.01 percent of the 1 percent and his cronies? This is exactly what the leftist called thuggish capitalism!

    Oh, I know, Israel government should seek compensation from Soros for his collaboration with Nazi's scheme of killing Jews and request $10k each for the 6 million Jewish souls perished under Nazi. 60 billion dollars sounds about right.

      No kidding! Great idea! In an ideal world; people of moral character would be just as good at fighting this war as the "progressive" scum when it came to reperations for victims. Unfortunately the true victims of the world don't wallow in self pity like those on the left; so it doesn't occur to them. Until we start playing the same game the tyrants do they will continue to win the war.

    A lot of people have made more money under Obama than under Bush. So what? The stock market has done better. Most of the increase is the natural business cycle at work — the upturn would have happened regardless of who was president. But in addition, there have been innovations (e.g., iPhone) that have created wealth. I don't credit Obama for this, but the idea that there is something sinister about Geroge Soros making lots of money during Obama is conspiratorial nonsense.

    The real issue is that we refuse to do anything about the entitlement mentality — that one is "entitled" to a home mortgage, food stamps, Medicaid. Few in either party seem willing to do something about this for fear of being called "insensitive" or "racist."

      Who knew. He much be as smart as Al Gore.

    I have read this article and I wondered that first African American President Brack Obama net worth is as high as it reported by the GetNetWorth wesite. He earned lot of money after he posted as president.
