DEMOCRAT money man George Soros looks ill.
At his November 13, 2008 testimony before Rep. Henry A. Waxman’s House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, a photographer captured Mr. Soros looking more frail and sickly than this reporter can ever recall seeing him. Soros turned 78 in August.
The photo (above left) was published in a November 18 report at Bloomberg.com, titled, “Soros-Funded Democratic Idea Factory Becomes Obama Policy Front“.
Judging by this photo, Mr. Soros’ celebrated vitality appears spent. Old age has overtaken him with startling swiftness. Sooner rather than later, I suspect, Mr. Soros will find himself in a realm where money and power no longer matter.
In my writings, I have cast harsh judgments on Mr. Soros. But my opinion is not the one that counts. In the end, Mr. Soros will stand before a better and wiser judge than me. He is in my prayers.
