RUSH: I’m wondering — I haven’t checked today because, frankly, I didn’t have the time to spend on it — but I wonder if there is serious, serious, serious mental instability and perhaps potential suicides waiting to occur at the kook-fringe left. George Soros has purchased recently two million shares of Halliburton. ?The Halliburton shares reportedly went for an average purchase price of $31.30 a share. That puts Soros’ total investment in Halliburton at around $62.6 million, or about 2 percent of his total portfolio.? Now, what’s interesting is that Soros is out there, $24 million in the last presidential cycle to fund all these 527s and to heap all kinds of criticism on Halliburton. Cheney used to run Halliburton. Soros supported campaign finance reform for years, only to then say that defeating Bush was the central focus of his life, and that’s when he sunk the $24 million of his own soft money into the campaign.
You have to wonder what the little nerds at MoveOn.org and the Center for American Progress and John Podesta’s group, what are they doing today? They’re going to have to manufacture stories that Soros is taking over Halliburton to make sure that it doesn’t do what it was doing when Cheney ran the joint. They’ve gotta be beside themselves. Halliburton has become a buzzword for corruption and lying and deceit as far as the left is concerned, and here’s their guru now buying two million shares of Halliburton. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
