Charles Koch Crushes Democrat Harry Reid in New Poll
TPNN ^ | April 18, 2014 | Matthew Burke

Posted on 04/18/2014 4:11:32 PM PDT by dontreadthis

In a new poll of a hypothetical race between libertarian philanthropist and business leader Charles Koch and Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Koch beats Reid by a huge margin, 42.2% to 29.9%.

The new poll, by the Washington Free Beacon, goes in line with other recent polls that show the Koch Brothers (Charles and David) of Koch Industries as being more popular than Reid, despite Reid’s unending campaign to vilify them.

So?

Reid won’t be up for re-election for another four years.

By then, the idiots in Nevada will have forgotten all this. :)

It’s nice that Charles and David Koch donate help to Republicans but it might be time for them to step up and run for office. We need competent caring people... in charge - not just on the sidelines.

If there ever was a guy who could come straight out of central casting and play a mortician, Harry Reid is the guy.

I heard Harry isn’t running again, that’s why he’s so free to act so douchy.

It would be interesting to know Koch’s name recognition level vs Reid’s. How many of the 42.2% were voting against Reid vs for Koch or both?

“... step up and run for office ...”
-
Charles Koch and David Koch are as different as night and day.
Charles is a businessman; David is a politician.

David Koch was the candidate for vice-president in 1980 in the Libertarian Party.

Reid continued. “It’s his hair. He’ll pull it for you anytime just to show you that it’s real.”

“I mean, he has hair like a 15-year-old,” he said, admiringly.

“My wife,” Reid said, “tells me all the time how handsome Pat Leahy is and [that she is] so glad that he doesn’t do a comb-over.”

LOL---so true.

Harry should go sell caskets rather than tampering w/ our laws.

We really should do something nice for Harry when the time comes---as a token of our deep appreciation (cackle).

Why not give Harry a brand new office ....in the Capitol's sub-basement, next to the furnace. Harry'll just love his brand-new cardboard desk (some assembly required). Although I hear phone service isn't hooked up down there yet. Harry can always use smoke signals (from the handy furnace) to communicate.

And give 'ol Harry a comfortable chair---and tell him not
to worry about all those silly electrical switches laying around.

Incorrect. He's up in '16, that's only two years. Tempus Fugit. I didn't know Koch was NV. Casts a whole new light on why Reid's been so anti-Koch brothers, doesn't it?

Nothing from the Church in Salt Lake yet on Harry? What say you LDS?

Oh thats right! 10% of the money Harry steals means more to you than anything.

I think this is pretty funny considering most people don’t know who the Koch brothers are.

I guess someone you don’t even know is better than Hairy Reid.

Although I have serious theological issues with the LDS church I have met many of their members and they are without doubt some of the most decent people I know. It is unfortunate that the church itself does not offer a little “counseling”to the utterly corrupt Reid.

Senators and congressmen cannot be recalled. This has been litigated both in federal court (Idaho, 1967) and state court (New Jersey, 2013). Unless the Grim Reaper picks him up or he resigns, you’ll have to wait until his next election.

I've always referred to him as "Digger O'Dell".

But you're probably too young to recognize the name, LOL.

If this is Filthy Harry’s last term it may help explain why he is so adamant on Bundy-——trying to cash in while he still has clout.

Thanks dontreadthis. The only votes I’d give Reid is “off the island” or like that short story “The Lottery”.

The scoundrel is up for re-election in 2016, unless the rules were changed somewhere.

No one is going to 'forget'.

The friggin government sent a unit of armed men to collect a bill... If you don't pay a bill do you want the government coming to your home and pointing guns at your wife and children?

Is that what this country has come to?

No one's going to 'forget' this one... 37% of Americans are afraid of their own government. Thirty seven percent! Are afraid of our government. Think about it.

I don't expect government employees to be 'public servants' but I sure as hell don't expect them to collect money owed them at the point of a gun either.

Heard the rumor 'parking meter maids' are going to get their own SWAT Teams next? You don't pay your parking ticket and they come to your home with a tank and taser you child? Wow... what a country.

I know how this works and I have seen some abuse of authority...and we do have to stand up, and legally, if possible. After we exhaust all methods then we do have to stick together when these people overstep their bounds...we believe in justice too. I’m glad to see Gov, Senators, and other officials backing up Bundy, that is promising, but the proof is in the action later.
