Never Battle With George Soros When Death Is On The Line!

George Soros - Spooky Dude - has made some comments recently about the Republican race, particularly aimed at Mitt Romney.  The reaction to his comments have been quite amazing, in my opinion, mostly because some on the Right have actually taken his comments at face value. face...value.

In an interview with Fareed Zakaria, Soros recently said this:
ZAKARIA:  "So you think Mitt Romney, if elected, would pursue a stimulus program?"
SOROS:  "I think — I’m pretty sure that would happen."
Soros had previously said:
"If it’s between Obama and Romney, there isn’t all that much difference except for the crowd that they bring with them."

Rush Limbaugh's response to this was: "He's endorsing Romney. 'Romney, that's cool, no difference, I could go either way that way.'"
Newt Gingrich, of course, used Soros' words for exactly the purpose that Soros intended them: “I think for most Republican voters, the idea of trying to nominate a Soros-approved candidate is not a very appealing idea.” Newt's claims about Romney being Soros-approved earned four Pinocchios.

Many anti-Romney Bloggers and Tweeters have used the comments to support their theory that Romney is not electable against Obama and that Obama actually wants to face Romney in the General Election.  It is an interesting theory, but is it really wise to cite Soros as an ally just to take a shot at a candidate you don't really like?
Here's the most important question: Does anyone really believe George Soros is going to speak honestly about the Republican race?  If Soros and Democrats really do want to face Romney, would Georgie say something that - taken at face value -  is likely to eliminate Romney from the GOP nomination?  I mean, we aren't really taking George Soros at his word, are we?
I always chuckle when some host asks a Democrat strategist (usually on CNN) something like, "What do Republicans need to do to beat Obama?"  The "strategist" then goes on a rant about someone that is clearly not what the Republicans need to do.  It's like asking Bill Belichick at halftime what the Giants need to do to beat them in the second half.  Such a stupid question would get a stern rebuke and dismissal from Belichick.  And yet they just listen as a Democrat gives Republicans "honest" advice.  It's so altruistic of them to want to help their opponents.

Trying to guess what is really behind George Soros' statements is like trying to guess which glass Wesley put the iocane powder in.  For that debate, see here.  It is the same with James Carville, Paul Begala, Donna Brazile, etc.  We cannot take any of these fools at face value.  They want to divide, confuse, and mislead people regarding the Republican race.  Why wouldn't they?  They want to win in 2012!  The only way to know who the Dems want to see and who they don't want to see in a General Election is to follow the money...and the money leads to:
Obama spends $$$$$$$$$$$$ to attack Mitt Romney!!!
(here) (here) (here) (here) (here) (here) (here) (here)
I found those - and other - links without any trouble.  With the same amount of effort, I found no Obama attacks on Santorum.  Shouldn't that tell us something about who Obama actually wants to face?  We shouldn't listen to Soros, or CNN talking heads, or Newt Gingrich (who is making arguments for the left)...we should look at where the Left is spending money.  It's all on Romney.  Would any reasonably intelligent or cunning person spend money attacking a man he didn't fear?  The man Obama fears, is the man we should nominate to face him!  Mitt Romney.

The moral of the story: Never Trust George Soros When An Election Is On The Line! (or ever)
