George Soros: “If it’s between Obama and Romney there isn’t all that much difference except for the crowd that they bring with them.”

This should be “all anyone needs to know,” as a reminder to do one’s civic duty, to make sure Mitt Romney does not become United States President.
George Soros says there ‘isn’t all that much difference’ between Romney and Obama

This isn’t exactly the kind of endorsement the Romney campaign is looking for. It’s probably even less welcome than the purported nod for Newt Gingrich from crooked GOP congressman Randy ‘Duke’ Cunningham sent from his jail cell.
Speaking in Davos, gathering place for the global elites and upscale chattering classes, billionaire investor George Soros – loathed by conservative activists for his ‘zillion-dollar left-wing radical agenda machine’ – seemed to be pretty much OK with the notion of a Romney presidency.
‘Well, look, either you’ll have an extremist conservative, be it Gingrich or Santorum, in which case I think it will make a big difference which of the two comes in,’ he told Chrystia Freeland of Reuters in a videotaped interview. ‘If it’s between Obama and Romney, there isn’t all that much difference except for the crowd that they bring with them.’

Newt Gingrich caught wind of this pronouncement by the Mouth of Soros (a.k.a., The Puppetmaster, or by the attribution he’s given himself, “god”). His response is found in the subsequent post “Newt Gingrich: Soros is Right, I am the Real Threat.”
