Skip to comments.Billionaire Conservative Activist Charles Koch on 2012 Election: ‘We Have Saddam Hussein
Posted on 09/06/2011 2:29:57 PM PDT by Nachum
Not the White House, nor the Obama 2012 campaign, nor Democratic National Committee had any immediate comment Tuesday when contacted by ABC News and asked about comments made by Koch referring to the 2012 campaign as a repeat of the Iraq War.
We have Saddam Hussein, this is the Mother of All Wars weve got in the next 18 months, Koch said in comments at a private gathering in Colorado in June, first reported by the progressive Brad Blog and Mother Jones Magazine. For the life or death of this country.
ADD Philip Ellender, President and COO, Government and Public Affairs for the Koch Companies Public Sector, LLC, said in a statement that Koch was not referring to President Obama in his remarks. The Mother of All Wars is a common phrase, frequently attributed to Saddam Hussein on the eve of the first Gulf War. Amid record U.S. unemployment, continued economic decline, and loss of liberty, the U.S. has been plunged into its own mother of all wars. Our nations future will be determined in the coming months by the choices Americans make to address the serious economic issues facing our country.

This is a tempest in a teapot. There is no point in addressing the merits of Koch’s statement since 99.5% of the country has never heard of him.
The heads of the lunatic left — which is just about all of them — are exploding all across the nation upon hearing of this. The Koch Brothers are seen as the ultimate enemy. Now that enemy has declared WAR! Not just WAR! but the MOTHER OF ALL BATTLES!
At least one billionaire is not a brain dead, evil idiot. Good to hear.
The best part is that Baraq has not only cooked his own goose, but by inspiring the conservative side will take down a large additional number of Dems in the 2012 elections.
“Now that enemy has declared WAR! Not just WAR! but the MOTHER OF ALL BATTLES!”
I’m gettin’ out the popcorn popper. The big one.
Which CBCtard is going to convolute this into a racist statement? /s
Comments in June...comes out now...interesting. This is Hoffa/Media/Rat’s excuse for Hoffa’s recent comments.
Yet, after saying nothing about Hoffa Obama and Rats are not justified in saying anything about Koch’s statements - but they will.
lawyer up pal. you’re about to be subjected to a torrent of “investigations.”
Watch all the liberals who claim that all republicans are in the pot for the Koch Brothers go bezerk and say he needs to be silenced and he needs to say sorry.. But then these same scum buckets don’t say a word about Hoffa and Obama..
I HATE LIBERALS.
Most of them don't even know who the man is much less what he does and how many jobs he provides for normal everyday working Americans (unlike NBC’s GE - love of the left).
Some nutcase website (like Media Matters) leads these kooks to the trough and they drink the kookaid.
Had to come up with something to trump the Hoffa blather.
I just wish the civil war would just damn start because the other side is asking for it (Hoffa)..what’s the use of storing ammo if not to be used against these traitor bastards?
Yes this is true. But when it starts what then? Obama calling for Martial law. That is what he wants.
I truly doubt our armed forces would take orders from this POS when it comes to Martial Law/CW. I am confident to say they might march to the WH and arrest the bastard.
Ya get two for the price of one, his billionaire brother is conservative too.
I truly hope your right..
Don’t count on it. I used to think our military would stand up for the country over “all enemies foreign and domestic” but after watching the military cave to every whim of this traitor I am not so sure.
The military has been dumbed down to just another Liberal department, and is being weakened from within.
What used to be our greatest institution (probably still is in most respects) has fallen victim to political correctness and diversity....
I agree with you.
The armed services certainly have patriots in the ranks, but upward mobility is often determined by political correctness and liberal-friendly traits.
Leftys consider themselves to be the nation’s “intelligentsia”, ie the only people that matter, and they spend much of their time villifying the Koch brothers, although I doubt they have a clue what the Koch brothers politics really are.
After Hoffa, how can the WH say anything....
