Is spooky dude George Soros losing faith in Obama?

The Huffington Post has a very interesting story up about a curious statement made by spooky dude George Soros to wealth Democrat donors.
Huffington Post: WASHINGTON -- At a private meeting on Tuesday afternoon, George Soros, a longtime supporter of progressive causes, voiced blunt criticism of the Obama administration, going so far as to suggest that Democratic donors direct their support somewhere other than the president.
The Hungarian-American financier was speaking to a small side gathering of donors who had convened in Washington D.C. for the annual gathering of the Democracy Alliance -- a formal community of well-funded, progressive-minded individuals and activists.
According to multiple sources with knowledge of his remarks, Soros told those in attendance that he is "used to fighting losing battles but doesn't like to lose without fighting."
"We have just lost this election, we need to draw a line," he said, according to several Democratic sources. "And if this president can't do what we need, it is time to start looking somewhere else." [MORE]
What exactly is the spooky dude saying here? Is he advocating a challenger to Obama or is a he telling progressive donors to look for additional ways to push their crazy agenda? Keith Olbermann explored both possibilities in this video clip below.

A primary challenge to Obama would be a very risky thing.  Even if someone was able to pick off Obama, they would probably have to go into the general election with diminished support from the black community. The black community would see ditching Obama as a betrayal, plain and simple and a significant number probably would not support the winner.  With full compliance from the black community any Democrat presidential candidate would be at a major disadvantage.
Most likely, the spooky dude was telling donors to seek additional avenues to help spread their message.  Although, in the end I think that will be a big waste of money. The Democrats problem is not messaging; it is the actual policies they are trying to push.  America simply doesn’t care for them no matter how the left tries to sell it.
If the left is still hell bent on pushing a hard left agenda even after The Shellacking, then this statement by Palin could very well come true.

Short answer to your title question: No.

This is a very public message to BO to get his progressive butt in gear . . . or else.

I hope they do primary Obama, because I can't think of any in recent history that's been successful. McCarthy came close to beating LBJ in NH, so close that LBJ dropped out and Nixon ultimately won. Reagan primaried Ford, and Carter won. Buchanon primaried Bush 41, giving rise to Perot and handing the presidency to Clinton.

At least in recent histor, primaries of sitting presidents tend to weaken the president which has resulted in a change in power to the other party.

Eventually one will probably work out, but the odds are against them. So, I'd say the best thing the Republican can hope for is a primary Democratic primary challenge to Obama.

Here are the campaign contributions of George Soros and his family.

Annaliese Soros is his wife.

His children are Robert, Andrea, Jonathan, Alexander, and Gregory.

Paul Soros is his brother and Daisy Soros is Paul's wife. Their son is Jeffrey Soros.

Peter Soros is George's nephew.

Jennifer Soros is Jonathan's wife. Melissa Soros is Robert's wife.

These "homemakers", "film makers," and "self-employed" Soros' sure have a lot of money to give to Demon Rats! I wonder where they got the money.

We need to apply the same rules from banking and finance to university research grants, trial lawyers, and union funds. Defeated plaintif attorneys should be subject to victorious defendent's malpractice suits. Professors molest more youth than clergy do. Privatize the university-grants complex (NSF, NIH, NOAA, NASA, NIST, NEH, NEA) so corporations may own univerity patents. Deport foreign born Obama voters for sedition .Blame professulas whose posh pensions graze on stumbent loan interest from vacuous degrees in basket weaving commie nutty organizing. Turn grant grubbing blatherers into fuel, especially perverts like mayor crotch who gas for obsama zbin biden. Your islamosympathic gutterswabbing clothing and pierced privates spread disease. If you weren't such baby killing, vermin snuggling perverts you wouldn't be driving up our health costs, then collecting disability for your commie nutty organizing dementia. Your passive aggressive labor unions grab our guns, cars (congestion pricing), balls (SONDA), wallets, and homes but we will grab your throats and dang you from trailer bone tolls. Apply Sarbanes Oxley to non-profits! Repeal the sixteenth amendment before any VAT. All the homeless are drugged out hippies. Second Amendment is the ONLY Homeland Security. Wait until we waste all your stumbent subprimes, so you need to sell your affectation glutton art and work instead of diverting tuition and Y2K scams to soviet freezeniks! Deport for multiple visits to same country. If you controlled your own pension neither your boss nor the government could abuse it. Lynch soviet wealth fund abetting aghadhimmic peakies when oil plummets! Parasites complain about salaries but pig out with benefits. Global warming is a grant grubbing extortion racket. Urban sprawl annoys terrorists. Hazards and pollution stem mostly from mandates. Aqua volte! This land wasn't build by bullocraps.
