    He saw it coming.

    Good for him. I admire people who can make money in any environment.

    He certainly listened to HILRod.

    Never let a crisis go to waste.

    Even though there should be, there won't be a single hearing.

    I'd pose the question, did he manipulate the crisis, as he did before?

    Hating on Soros for profitting during the recession is just partisan bullshit. Is anyone holding Buffet accountable these days? It's not like Soros is the only one profitting.

    In a recession, there are going to be sectors, and specifically COMPANIES, that THRIVE.

    If you're smart about what you do, you can take advantage of it. If I'd have had the powder for it last year, I'd have probably made a killing during this recession with just the few specific companies I was looking at as gainers in this downturn, and I'm a novice at best. I paper traded about 5 companies that could have earned me over 10% collectively since January '08.

    The problem isn't that Soros is profitting, but what he's ultimately doing with his money. Being the historical democrat party funder that he is, I think we know where a couple bucks went. Let's not pick on him for his investment prowess, let's at least hold him accountable for his "donations".

    Kath, I have no doubt that there are a handful of ultra wealthy who had a hand in this crisis, but let's not be partisan about it. Soros very well may have had SOMETHING to do with it, but there would NO DOUBT be people who call themselves republicans who were involved as well.

    We could start with anyone who's ANYONE in the banking community. Soros would be like way down on my list of suspected culprits. I'd be willing to bet that anyone who's MOST responsible is someone most people haven't even heard of.

    At least now we know why he supports politicians who seek to destroy the economy.

    So you are for a conspiracy. I'm not. I wonder if Soros did this on his own.
