Persona de la semana (parte 2)
In our last "Persona de la semana Parte 1" posting episode, my topic (Michelle Malkin) caused severe seizures and abnormal behaviour amongst my liberal friends. Quaker Dave in particular had his Truth-Pain voodoo doll at the ready and was deathly afraid of the bad mojo he may have inspired by his copious rants against Ms. Malkin. Since my aim is to illuminate important persons of today's socio-political village, I just had to throw the left a healthy bone to munch on...., I hereby present:
Many facts and myths surround this billionaire international financier. Loved by the right when he was helping Reagan and Bush 41 debacle the Soviet empire and its stranglehold of eastern European countries, yet loathed by the current Neo-Conservatives for funding liberal groups such as Move-on. org and others of their ilk. It seems he has won both praise and scorn of both sides of the spectrum depending of course what mission he fronted at a particular time.
Below are some wide ranging links, both of flattery and disdain that I have gathered for your evening read. I confess I knew very little of him, ... mostly what Limbaugh and other right wing radio pundits had raised. I've studied plenty of additional information since then. I hope you do to.
I report,... you decide.
Currency speculation story & Insider trading conviction
How the Right Wing sees him
Why the Left Wing loves his money
.... Now if I could just get Malkin and Soros to have dinner with me..
