OBAMAS ENEMY LIST
02/01/2012

Posted on 02/01/2012 8:08:06 PM PST by RichSr

7 What would you do if the White House engaged in derogatory speculative innuendo about the integrity of your tax returns? Suppose also that the president’s surrogates and allies in the media regularly attacked you, sullied your reputation and questioned your integrity. On top of all of that, what if a leading member of the president’s party in Congress demanded your appearance before a congressional committee this week so that you could be interrogated about the Keystone XL oil pipeline project in which you have repeatedly—and accurately—stated that you have no involvement?

Consider that all this is happening because you have been selected as an attractive political punching bag by the president’s re-election team. This is precisely what has happened to Charles and David Koch, even though they are private citizens, and neither is a candidate for the president’s or anyone else’s office.

What Messrs. Koch do, in fact, is manage businesses that provide employment to more than 50,000 people in North America in legitimate, productive industries. They also give millions of dollars to medical researchers, hospitals and cultural institutions. Their biggest offense, apparently, is that they also contribute generously to nonprofit organizations that promote personal liberty and free enterprise, and some of those organizations oppose policies advocated by the president

Do what Soros does. Call the GOP and tell them to knock off Obama’s minons with Congressional investigations and voice or else. That is how fascism works.

Obama is a true disciple of Saul Alinsky, and he won't hesitate to use quasi-legal and extra-legal means to go after his enemies.

More gangster government from little Barry.

One thing that Charles & David Koch should do is to fire back at 0dumb0 & the demoRATs with (rhetorical) guns blazing. We are at war with RAT bastard socialist demoRATs and the RAT bastard commie pig 0dumb0shit. The Koch brothers can afford it.....they should hire lawyers & PR firms that would bird dog every demoRAT that is trying to persecute them. File lawsuits, restraining orders, defammation of character civil suits, etc. In essence turn that “leading” demoRAT’s life into a living hell by negative PR ads & publicity and filing lawsuits against him.

We are ALL on his enemies list. The only thing is when you write big checks to the folks who oppose him, you get moved up higher to toward the top of that list.

I'd walk into the next hearing and ask Waxman to step outside or apologize.
