    Who cares about Soros? Seriously you Beckians are way too obsessed with that guy.

    That's because Beck is a clown, he's entertaining.

    I don't think I've ever seen Soros do anything funny or entertaining.

    People make fun of Beck because he's an idiot. Beckians are obsessed with Soros because they think he's taking over the world.

    Simple.

    Soros is liberal Democrat.

    The Cato Institute is libertarian. Libertarian, as a third party, sucks more votes away from Republicans than Democrats.

    Soros aids libertarian think-tank -> fewer votes for R.

    At least, that's probably what he thought when he did it.... assuming the decision wasn't made by some flunky rather than Soros personally.

    Warning to Glenn Beck: You're 'hurting' George Soros &' his business' - National Political Transcripts | Examiner.com



    By now it's common knowledge that Glenn Beck is no fan of financier and philanthropist George Soros. Time and again, Beck has attacked Soros with anti-Semitic stereotypes, referring to him as a "puppet master" who controls the media, the political process, and the global economy. Moreover, he has routinely smeared progressives associated with Soros, fabricating lies about their political affiliations and accusing them of engaging in radical behavior.

    By now it's common knowledge that George Soros is no fan of Fox News and talk show host Glenn Beck.. Time and again, Soros through his funding of Media Matters has attacked Glenn Beck with lies, calling his talk anti-Semitic, sending him a movie about a drunken talk show host who ends up suicidal. .

    To claim George Soros is a socialist is ridiculous. Glenn Beck and his followers are so ignorant of history that most of them probably don't know that Soros was instrumental in shutting down many socialist governments in Eastern Russia. The last time I saw such penis envy was when Clinton was around. I guess Glenn Beck is mad that an atheist like Soros has done more for democracy and freedom than any ****ty rally ever could.

    I think you make a good point. Sometimes I wonder who hates Republicans more, Democrats or Libertarians. Libertarians (the pothead and anarcho types) hate Repbulicans because they feel their existence keeps Libertarians from the prominence they are due.

    No its more that Republicans and Conservatives for the most part are still hypocritical statists, despite the rethoric.
