Is this the same george soros who benefitted from such a heinous act?

Noooooo, it can't be.
Better late to repent by doing something really worthwhile than never repenting or never doing something worthwhile.

Maybe you can add: Is this the same George Soros who helped oust Bush in '04?

I hope so..
Strange that you think he's repenting, when the man is trying to put the bush administration out of commission. He's a greedy bastard who's own greed got the better of him. That dollar hedge cost him a lot. And the buying of jewish property is utterly disgusting and repugnant.

Maybe your right, the mention of his name (soros) in the democratic endgame will (hopefully) lead to massive losses at the poll.
Why are you blaming George Soros for actions his father took 60 years ago? There are fortunate rich sons all over the place, whose families accumalated wealth on very immoral grounds. How can you blame someone for being born into a certain family?

And do you seriously think the fact that George Soros funding an anti-Bush PAC/thinktank which has nothing to do with the current candidates will cost the Democrats even one vote in 2004?

I don't like to defend rich bastards, but to his credit Soros was 14 at the time and his Jewish family posed as Christians in Hungary to avoid being killed by the soon to be defeated Nazis.

I know alot of Jews hate the Soros for what he did at the time, but personally I'm not gonna judge the man's family for what they did to survive during the Holocaust.

Then, as Loonieray said earlier, he should "repent" by giving back the proceeds to the jews he and his father literally stole from.

Yo Duh... I prefer he "repent" by helping oust G. Bush in '04. Of course you might not see it the same but... you ain't Loonieray either..:D

That was one of bush's promises also but he has yet to act upon it.
Any official running for any office cannot collect more than $2000 from any individual. This includes Bush.
25k a year from individuals or a PAC
2k a year a year per person. I dont know the limits on a pac.
2k from an individual straight to the candidate yes, and the aggregate limit is variable for "lower tier" candidates that are facing a big money candidate ie: it wouldnt be $2000 for a person (say Nader) facing a money maker like bush (the old limit was $1000 at 2000 pres election and they still got a lot of $ from hard money donors)
If you have a lot of money and you are gonna donate, you arent going to do the 2k individual limit, you would either donate to a PAC (37k limit per cycle) or individual to party donation (25k/57k per year depending) or whatever else committee etc.
Bush will still get big $$$ donors. And so will the lucky Dem
