Soros to Fox News: "[Your colleagues are] so disreputable I wouldn't want to mention their names." [VIDEO]

In a 30 minute interview with one of the milder mouth-breathers at Fox, George Soros, the bete noir of right wing conspiracy theorists, tells Fox viewers a number of things they don't often get the opportunity to hear.

Watch Part II now HERE.

We'll be presenting a few choice clips from the interview over the next couple of days, in which the billionaire talks about the failure of the war on terror, the fact that Dick Cheney runs this country, and when Fox's Neil Cavuto doesn't like the fact that his positions are groundless and empty, he resorts to the allegations, bandied about freely by right-wingers, that he somehow attempts to evade his duties as a tax-payer. Soros counters by charging that Cavuto is peddling lies and demands that he: "Let your public find out who I really am, what I really stand for."

I'm sure every guest on Cavuto's show has their business practices expolored with a fine-tooth comb. In the clips to the right, Soros responds to the charges with dignity and grace (he's faced down Nazis and Communists), challenging the host to stick to policy and to quit promoting the "lies" he sees peddled by his Fox colleagues so disreputable he doesn't deign to name them. Of course, Cavuto does.

Be sure to watch both clips, as Soros passionately defends his choice to live in America, and why it's that conscious decision to make this nation his home that drives his harsh criticism of the president and the Republican leadership.

In Monday's clip, Soros will defend his observation that he sees shades of Nazi rule in the Bush Administration's policies...
