soros, donations, 2012“Since I don’t know what I’m going to do, I can’t tell you,” he told the news service. Last October Soros hinted he may be finished contributing to the kind of Democratic-linked groups he backed seven years ago. The 2004 extravaganza was “an exception,” he said.

In a speech Thursday, Soros lamented the lack of bipartisanship. Political extremism is “endangering our open society,” he said. “As I see it, the two sides in the current disputes have each got hold of one half of the truth which they proclaim to be the whole truth.”
