WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Billionaire George Soros says getting George W. Bush out of the White House "is a matter of life and death," and he's putting $15 million toward that end.

Soros said he thinks the Bush White House is guided by a "supremacist ideology" that is creating a state of permanent warfare, the London Guardian reported.

"It is the central focus of my life," he told the Washington Post after announcing a donation of $5 million to a liberal Internet group

The 74-year-old investor is also bankrolling other liberal groups including America Coming Together, an anti-Bush group that plans to mobilize voters in 17 states and the Center for American Progress, to be headed by Bill Clinton's former chief of staff, John Podesta, aimed to counter the influence of neo-conservative groups.

Soros is writing a book, due out in January, "The Bubble of American Supremacy," in which he argues the United States "is doing itself immeasurable harm by its heavy-handed role in the world."
