democrats find Koch’s hard to swallow

The NY Times, flagship publication of the democrat party, recently ran a story whining about how Democrats who supported the Obama regime's takeover of health care were being "staggered" by ads pounding them for their actions.

WASHINGTON — Democrats are increasingly anxious about an onslaught of television ads hitting vulnerable Senate and House candidates for their support of the new health law, since many lack the resources to fight back in the early stages of the midterm campaign.
Poor things. And right on cue, the evil people behind these ads were clearly identified:
Since September, Americans for Prosperity, a group financed in part by the billionaire Koch brothers, has spent an estimated $20 million on television advertising that calls out House and Senate Democrats by name for their support of the Affordable Care Act.
These ads are characterized as "unusually aggressive."
The unusually aggressive early run of television ads, which has been supplemented by other conservative initiatives, has gone largely unanswered, and strategists in both parties agree it is taking a toll on its targets.
This is unusually aggressive? Let's see, you mean like calling Mitt Romney a murderer?

Let's have a look at how it's portrayed in the left wing media when uber-left wing billionaire George Soros pours money into a campaign:

The news was greeted with a major sigh of relief in Democratic circles: philanthropist George Soros had decided to open his checkbook — to the tune of $2 million — to several liberal outside groups, the leading edge of what is expected to be $100 million in spending by the Democracy Alliance, a group of major Democratic donors.

Soros cut a $1 million check to America Votes, a group formed during the 2004 election that focuses on grassroots organizing and advocacy, and another $1 million to American Bridge, a research operation run by David Brock.

“As he has in the past, George is focusing his political giving in 2012 on grassroots organizing and holding conservatives accountable for the flawed policies they promote,” wrote Soros political adviser Michael Vachon in an email to donors on Monday night. “Both groups are part of a progressive infrastructure, or center left establishment, that plays an increasingly important role in elections.”

A major sigh of relief. How nice. The ads run by Americans for Prosperity are effective:
Campaign experts said they believe that the early advertising blitz has driven down the support for Senate incumbents in highly competitive states such as Louisiana and North Carolina that are critical to the Democratic Party’s push to hold its majority.
The ads are so effective that democrats need once again to identify the bogeymen:
“Democrats need money at this early stage in order to fight back against the limitless spending from the Kochs,” said Guy Cecil, the executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. “As we get closer to the election, we will have the resources to introduce their Tea Party candidates before they have an opportunity to define themselves for voters, but right now the limitless spending from the Kochs means we need Democratic donors to step up in a bigger way immediately.”

Kochs, Kochs, Kochs. democrats are obsessed with Kochs.

Here’s one the Slimes ran on the Kochs fighting Cape Wind.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/23/us/koch-brother-wages-12-year-fight-over-wind-farm.html?_r=1&;

It took them 12 paragraphs to finally mention that Fat Boy Ted was fighting this too.

This article could just as factually have been written about the Swimmer protecting the Kennedy Kompound, with a small mention of the Kochs. But the Slimes chose to slime them instead.

Got several FB posts from libs trying to blame the Koch Bros for the WVa chem spill. Near as I can tell, they are just a vendor that sells the stuff.
The guy with the vintage 1938 riveted storage tank isn’t the Koch Bros.

I know someone whose last name is Koch pronounced “cook.”

I used to know someone who last name was Kuntz pronounced “coon-yetz.”

Really.

Thanks for posting. Solid piece, which I may not have seen otherwise, though Flopping Aces is oft-linked on sites I visit. Ignore HG, who is a type of hole. I mean a black hole of melodrama and obsession.

At least the Kochs didn’t use taxpayer’s money like the Obama crowd.

Every time I hear about the Kochs it makes me run to the frig and grab a Coke...

I agree, blog pimping is a bad enough problem for you to refuse to donate.

You should help to point out this scummy pimp behavior and improve conditions.

For every pimp you bust, an angel gets his wings.

There are many family names that have the word Koch in them including one well known ex mayor of New York City. I had reason to look up lineage of the name. There were many Koch——s that had roots in western Germany that migrated to the USA. I think the Koch brothers roots are in NW Europe. This is a very educated and talented family.
