Even though I am more in Way-Way's camp in that I am sceptical of Soros' power I remain skeered of Soros.
Soros makes money and that's a fact. Even though he was credited/blamed for an Asian monetary crisis in 1997, not everyone agrees that Soros caused it. The Malaysian Prime Minister blamed it on him but later retracted that accusation.
My own feeling is that Soros wishes he had the power to collapse currencies and governments at will. But he doesn't. After all, if he did, wouldn't he be the richest man in the world instead of 35th?
I don't think he's that much of a threat to anyone. Glenn Beck needs someone to demonize, and Soros fits the bill.
I think it's very sleazy of Beck to attack him for the WWII activities. Soros was a kid, and wasn't responsible. When Beck says "I don't want to hold him responsible" but then spends the next 10 minutes ranting about how Soros helped the Nazis as a teenager to save his own life and taking Soros' own quotes totally out of context....
I am neutral on Soros. I don't think he's the boogeyman that so many on the right think he is.
