Billionaire George Soros Regrets Backing Obama

Billionaire George Soros Regrets Backing Obama

George Soros, a notoriously Democratic billionaire, regrets backing Barack Obama in the 2008 election according to an email recently released by the State Department.

On Thursday, an email exchange between Hilary Clinton and Neera Tanden, President of the Center for American Progress, revealed that Soros was having doubts about Obama in charge.

The email sent to Clinton from Tanden stated, “I sat next to George Soros at dinner during the Democracy Alliance and after the topics of Europe and China, he started discussing President Obama.”

The email continued, “…he said he’s been impressed that he can always call/meet with you on an issue of policy and said he hasn’t met with the President ever…” which apparently led Soros to say he “regretted his decision in the primary” according to Tanden’s email.

According to The New Yorker, Soros gave around $5 million to the Obama campaign in 2008, and later felt the President did not take him seriously when he asked for meetings to discuss the global economy or other issues. The New Yorker reported in 2012, “When Soros wanted to meet with Obama in Washington to discuss global economic problems, Obama’s staff failed to respond.” 

It is interesting to see Obama lose a huge supporter in terms of finances and clout within the Democratic party. However,  it is even more surprising to see that the loss comes from a lack of personal access as opposed to lack of action or progress made while in office.

    The Obama was arrogant and felt he was the All-All, Be-All who didn’t owe anybody anything and who deserved everything per affirmative action treatment! Of course, if he had met with Soros more often, it would have exposed the George Soros-ian globalist banking clique before the 2012 election that was winnable if we Republicans had had a candidate that really wanted to win and not just a First Loser looking for business advantages! Only good thing about The Obama was he actually believed in his BS while Sen Mitt Romney was BS as a pretend rightist who moved from place to place to find a political office he could buy!

    I don’t buy this story not one bit. It’s just DNC propaganda ( not from Punching Bag Post but from outside sources). . A man like sorros never regrets any power moves he makes. Give me a break paleeze. . It’s always a game. Never forget that. Always question everything.

      Spending $5,000,000 to Sorros is like the street person spending a nickle! He doesn’t care, it was an attempt to garner POTUS control and influence, like Bermisma Gas in the Ukraine.
