George Soros Update

The new tidbits come from Michelle Malkin's web site Hot Air...

both of these involve the Clinton's. The first involves yet another fundraising scandal for Hillary...

Officials of a defunct pro-Democratic group that was hit with a near-record
campaign-finance fine last month hold strong ties to Sen. Hillary Rodham
Clinton’s presidential campaign, documents show.

At least four persons who worked for the America Coming Together (ACT)
fundraising group, which the Federal Election Commission recently fined
$775,000, work directly for the Clinton campaign or hold top positions with
consulting firms hired by it.

In addition, the group’s former president, longtime Clinton aide Harold
Ickes, has been identified as a volunteer adviser to the Clinton campaign. In
FEC filings, the campaign listed a debt to Mr. Ickes of more than $2,000 for
travel-related costs.

ACT is one of the many attack groups that Soros funds in order to do his dirty work and Ickes is the former White House staffer in the Bill Clinton White House.

The second one involves Bill Clinton getting hot when talk of the Betray Us ad popped up. He takes the new nuanced position that has become the modis operandi to explain away the Betray Us ad without condemning it specifically. He tries to equate a personal attack on the commanding general in the battlefield with your standard issue attacks on political opponents. When this ad came up, he compared it to the attacks on Clelland and Kerry. Now, if Dems think that these are equivalent I look forward to all of them making that part of their platform. If they think the public will be fooled, well, then we will see...
