Facing tough Senate races, Reid, fellow Dems turn their attack on Koch brothers
Fox News.com ^ | March 22, 2014

Posted on 03/22/2014 5:30:40 PM PDT by Kaslin

Political attacks on the Koch brothers have emerged as a key, practically everyday part of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Democratic Party’s 2014 election strategy -- accusing the wealthy conservative donors of trying to buy elections and block aid to Ukraine.

The attacks began in earnest last month when the Nevada Democrat in notable floor speeches accused Charles and David Koch of being “un-American” and “trying to buy America” and continued straight through this week.

“Across the country Republican Senate candidates are embracing a dangerous agenda that’s good for billionaires like the Koch Brothers and bad for nearly everyone else in the country,” the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said Thursday in announcing a record-breaking February fundraising haul of $6.8 million.

That Democrats would attack the Kochs, or mount a counter-attack, is to be expected, considering how their money was instrumental in helping conservative nonprofits assist Republicans in taking the House in the 2010 midterm elections. Furthermore, Reid argues the Kochs are really trying to "buy" elections to advance their self-serving corporate interests of lower taxes and less regulation.

Elections are bought everyday, by the RNC, the DNC, Hollywood, George Soros, global warming pimps, Obama-you name it. Money is the life blood of all politics, and Reid’s selective indignation is blatant hypocrisy.

The democrats raised a “record breaking” $6.8 million. I wonder how much of that came from the Kochs.

The Kochs aren’t even conservatives. They’re libertarians, and that’s Big-L libertarians. Pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage...they may support free market capitalism but on social issues they stink.

Attacking individual Americans from the floor of Congress for exercising their God-given, Constitution-guaranteed rights to support those they wish to support?

What is this nation coming to? Where are we headed?

Why doesn’t Harry get mad about Soros trying to rig elections and buy influence, much less try to destabilize whole countries and convert them into 3rd world countries for profit?

The Democrats can’t attack any of the other billionaires who are big GOP donors because they are all liberals.

Poor Harry and the Demon rats...

To think they are so undermaned with only the I.R.S., A.T F., O.S.H.A., E.P.A. and the press doing their bidding are still getting their asses handed to them.

10 or 15 years ago, it was Richard Scaife who was the Republican bogey-man.

Is Rand Paul a “Big-L” Libertarian? Doesn’t really matter. Since he endorsed, and is working for, Mitch McConnell in the GOP Primary against Matt Bevin (a real Conservative), I’ll never vote for the little, curly-haired asshole for anything. (Not to mention, his niece’s husband is McConnell’s Campaign Mgr.)

Fight back, fight back, fight back!

Tell the world what George Soros has done, who and what he’s funded, who and what he controls. What is wrong with conservatives that they never fight back?
