Soros Chips In

Billionaire George Soros is putting his money where his mouth is.

To date he’s donated more than $15 million to liberal activist groups including MoveOn.org and America Coming Together, with the express purpose of ousting the president. In his latest venture he plans to spend more than $2 million speaking in swing states and running ads in major newspapers, spreading the message that the war in Iraq has done “untold damage” to the United States.

“If I could contribute to repudiating Bush’s policies it would be the greatest good deed I could do for the world,” says the philanthropist who has spent billions promoting democracy all over the world.
