Billionaire investor George Soros in an interview with Reuters last week pointed out what many conservatives have been afraid to admit to themselves as the Republican Presidential primary drags on: Mitt Romney and Barack Obama really aren’t that different.
“Well, look, either you’ll have an extremist conservative, be it Gingrich or Santorum, in which case I think it will make a big difference which of the two comes in,” he said. “If it’s between Obama and Romney, there isn’t all that much difference except for the crowd that they bring with them.”
Soros went on to say that he believes Romney would have to have Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum as a Vice President to really make much of a conservative impact. He said he does, however, believe that Romney will change tax policy in the favor of wealthy Americans.
