Obviously, I am distressed at the outcome of the election. I hope, but don’t trust, that the second Bush administration will have learned something from the mistakes of the first. What is at stake is our ability to recognize our own fallibility.
I established this weblog in order to engage in a critical discussion with readers about President Bush’s policies, particularly in Iraq. To all those who sent in messages, thank you. I found the dialogue to be thought provoking, and I hope visitors to the site did as well. Georgesoros.com proved more popular than I initially imagined. There have been more than a million and a half visitors to the site and more than 30,000 people sent in messages.
Having established the site in the run up to the election, I frankly did not pause to consider what to do with it afterwards. Given the outcome, I now feel strongly that it should continue. Exactly what shape the future content will take, and how actively I will pursue this weblog, will take some time to figure out. In the meantime, I am traveling to Europe to attend to the business of my foundation – but I’ll be back.
Please check back in a few weeks for updates. Thank you.
