Democrats will waste millions of dollars trying to keep Koch Brothers from spending millions of their own money on political campaigns they think they can beat Democrats at in the Fall. It will be money Democrats sorely need to spend to hold the Senate, and pick up seats in the House. It will be a futile effort, and will fail in the long run. Koch Brothers could buy, and sell Democrats, and spit out their relatives. So funny. At least the Brothers will draw off money Democrats could better use other places. Zoros will take a big monetary hit as well. Good for him.

During the Romney presidential campaign the Koch bros gave a total of some $400 million. Even Romney’s foreign policy trips double as lucrative fundraising events. The most telling fact of all is the measly 39% of Romney campaign funding that comes from donations of $1,500 or less from ordinary Americans. By comparison, 79% of Obama's funding comes from such donations.

hes an ignorant troll who doesnt let facts get in the way of a bigoted and biased rant. I find it amusing how he consistently makes a total ass of himself. His post this time, has got to be one of the dumbest and ignorant he has ever made. His stupidity is simply baffling.

No doubt Romney took about half of that $400 million he got
from the Kock brothers and deposited it in some offshore
bank at tax free.

$200 million, just a down payment for what the Kock brothers
were anticipating getting from a Romney administration.
All kinds of free stuff.

$200 million can grease a lot of palms, a lot wheels,
and the Kock brothers are good at it. Government for sale!
Baksheesh all around

Pity, they backed the wrong horse.

When you state, "No doubt ...", do you have some proof? Or at least something of plausible substance?

Freaks, weirdos, social outcasts, misfits, the lunatic fringe element, and lazy, shiftless welfare leeches are Obama's biggest supporters.
