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.
