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.

The IRS is writing new rules specifically aimed at conservative groups and it meant to impair their right to free speech and it seems very probable that the Koch brothers will see an audit before the next election. As Glen reminds us, Obama “joked” about using the IRS to audit his “enemies.” It’s not funny and it’s not a joke any more. It has become a reality.

After Barack Obama outspent John McCain 3:1 on TV ads democrats can just shut up. democrats speak of the evil of the Koch money but had nothing to say when Obama took countless millions in untraceable donations.

So I think shoving the Koch’s down the throats of democrats until they learn to swallow is highly appropriate. democrats should be punished for their actions in enslaving us with this Obamacare albatross.

Post-script:

It’s frustrating to learn how biased even search engines have become. You search “how much did soros spend on 2012 election” and the very first thing that comes up?

Pathetic.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    @Redteam:

    There are Red states and Blue states, I don’t know of any commie states, in the US.

    When I was growing up, if someone said they were a ‘red’ that had a different connotation. What do we really know about you anyway? What are your conservative bonafides, if you don’t mind me asking? On a scale of 1 – 10, how conservative are you? Here’s a hint: the only acceptable answer is 11.

    I realize there is no one word that properly describes being as UnAmerican as he is.

    What if we called him “Redteam”, since he’s on the team of Commies who are trying to bring down America?

    As in, ‘This one, Tom, Greg, Joe, RJW” I probably would agree with that.

    This is the list of the people you’ve chosen to be influenced by? I don’t believe you. You have no business comparing yourself to those who reside upon FA Mount Rushmore.

    I guess this soliloquy is an attempt at humor. When I was growing up a Tom was a turkey, guess it still is.

    What are your conservative bonafides,

    I am exactly as conservative as I need to be.

    What if we called him “Redteam”,

    Sounds good to me.

    This is the list of the people you’ve chosen to be influenced by

    there is more than one kind of influence. This is the list of those that I especially don’t want to emulate.

    @Richard Wheeler: Both good games. you’re O fer today, right? I like your record so far. Baseball 100% wrong. most college games you were right on, I missed one. Pro games today, I was 2-0, You sure you want to pick against me in the 14 elections? Remember, I got all the baseball predictions correct. All the pro games we’ve picked so far. That second game today was great, went right down to the last minute. 3 turnovers for 49ers in 4th qtr didn’t help them.

    @Ronald J. Ward:

    I mean, this is the guy that actually referred to the Constitution as “a goddamn piece of paper”. But I’ll digress.

    No he didn’t.

    The report that Bush “screamed” those words at Republican congressional leaders in November 2005 is unsubstantiated, to put it charitably.

    http://www.factcheck.org/2007/12/bush-the-constitution-a-goddamned-piece-of-paper/

    Just about every president in US history has walked a fine line as far as the constitution goes. Andrew Jackson, the democratic icon went as far as too defy a SCOTUS ruling.

    Jackson is famous for having responded: “John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it.”

    http://www.pbs.org/wnet/supremecourt/antebellum/history2.html
    There are those on the right that were more than happy to see George W. Bush slap the liberals around with executive orders and signing statements after eight years of Clinton doing it to the right. And now there are liberals that are just as happy seeing Obama doing it right back at conservatives. And if a conservative somehow garners the White House in 2016, we could see the cycle just continue.
    The problem is that we have given these people (the federal government) too much power. All of us, left, right, and everyone in between.
    The left complains about a republican congress slowing down Obama’s agenda; yet they were pretty ecstatic in 2006 when a liberal congress was able to do the same to Bush.
    The power should reside in the States. I have no idea what State you live in RJW. I know Rich lives in SoCal, a place I lived for 15 years. I know Tom lives in Massachusetts. They both seem happy with the politics of their States, and I’m happy for them. I live in Georgia and I’m relatively happy with the politics of my State. I think the only way I would be happier is if I lived in Texas. I don’t want liberal federal officials telling me what is good for my State. And I don’t want conservative federal officials telling you what is good for your State. That is the way it should work. Washington DC should not be a factor in our day-to-day lives. Other than wars (which should be declared by congress) and treaties (where the senate approves or rejects resolutions), the federal government should have little or no affect on our lives.

    Ronald J. Ward,
    if there is a DEMOCRAT PARTY,
    WHAT DO THEY DO FOR THE CITIXENS TO MAKE THEIR LIVES BETTER, APART FROM HARRASSING THEM IN THEIR OWN HOUSE,AND THREATEN THEM TO PAY FOR WHAT THEY CLAIM A TRANSGRESSION TO THEIR BOOK OF THOUSANDS RESOLUTIONS,BY OBAMA’S ORDERS,
    NOT THEIR OWN SELF LIVES, WE KNOW THEY ARE VERY GENEROUS FOR THEIR OWN,
    NO, I AM ASKING, WHAT DO THEY DO, FOR THE AMERICANS, AND FOR AMERICA
    TO PRESERVE HER UNIQUE STANDING IN THE WORLD?
    WE HAVEN’T SEEN NOTHING YET, ON THE CONTRARY ,
    WE SEE THEY ARE HURTING AMERICA, BY PROMOTING THEIR SELF CENTER, AGENDA, WHICH IS TO DEMONIZE
    OTHER WHO DON’T LIKE THEIR TWISTED POLICY,
    DEMONIZE THE REPUBLICANS AND CONSERVATIVES WHO KEEP THEIR
    OWN VALUES INTACT, WHICH COME FROM THE FRAMERS,
    FATHERS OF THE CONSTITUTION, THE ONLY LAW OF THE LAND,WRITTEN TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE AND AMERICA,
    FOREVER,

    @Richard Wheeler:

    I remember you were real proud of picking Obama to win twice.

    Not that he won, but that my prediction was correct. I haven’t really looked closely at the exact numbers for November, I’ll wait a little while for that. Let the Dims continue to shoot themselves in the foot a few more times. Or, as in Hillary’s case, let them have a few more ambassadors shot. It’ll make it easier to pick the exact number.
