For George Soros, A Private Meeting With The President In New York: Being Pissed On

By the time that Obama ran for President, in 2008, his relations with the financial industry had grown warmer, and he attracted more donations from Wall Street leaders than John McCain, his Republican opponent, did. Yet this good feeling did not last, despite the government’s bailout of the banking sector. Many financial titans felt that the President’s attitude toward the “one per cent” was insufficiently admiring, even hostile…When George Soros wanted to meet with Obama in Washington to discuss global economic problems, Obama’s staff failed to respond. Eventually, they arranged not a White House interview but, rather, a low-profile, private meeting in New York, when the President was in town for other business. Soros found this back-door treatment confounding. “He feels hurt,” a Democratic donor says. “They pissed on him,” a confidant says. “He didn’t want a fucking thing! He didn’t want a state dinner, or a White House party—he just wanted to be taken seriously.” [New Yorker]

      There is something amusing about a person who has made almost unimaginably gargantuan amounts of money speculating in financial markets feeling disrespected because a politician he pays to be his friend doesn't sufficiently pretend to take seriously his opinions on anything other than how to speculate in financial markets.

    Maybe at the request of Obama Robert Wolf asked his high flying third year analysts to build a model projecting Soros' life expectancy and the output showed that they were 99.5% confident Soros died in 2006, so Obama decided it was not worth courting such a gentleman caller.
