Boogeymen and shady deals

Well, we know the dems used shady deals to get Obamacare passed, and we also konw they always paint their opponents as boogeymen. Yep, the headline describes the underhanded dems to a T

Koch brothers are evil for supporting conservative politicians but 168 billionaire donors to Democrats are all good, right?

"Boogeymen?" That's just silly. The Koch brothers are not boogeymen.

Boogeymen are dirty, nasty, mean, greedy, fictional creatures who endanger, harm, and corrupt people.

The Koch brothers, on the other hand, are no fictional.

See the difference?

How come all the hate for Brother Reid? He's a decent man and brother in good standing with the church.

Democrats continue their strategy of blaming anything bad on others. It used to be Bush. Now its the Koch brothers. Every American should hope they never become a target of the Democratic machine of character assassination.

Far-right Republicans continue their strategy of blaming anything bad on others. It used to be Clinton. Now its Harry Reid and President Obama brothers. Every American should hope they never become a target of the far-right Republican machine of character assassination.

Just remember the facts. It was Obama who was the FIRST candidate for President who did not take the matching funds when he ran against McCain. He had said he would early in the race, but when he realized that he could get much more money going with the rich Democrat money brokers he decided to not do the matching fund program. Because of Obama, it is unlikely we will ever see another Presidential election that is not funded by millionaires and billionaires from BOTH parties. So, all of you who claim to be opposed to big money in politics can just mellow out. Your guy started it with his billion dollar campaign.

While you're right to criticize Obama for not taking matching funds like he had promised in 2008, and that is one of my major disappointments in him over the years, that election was pre-Citizens United so the swarm of billionaire funding wasn't nearly what it is now.

Those of you who naively believe that this is just a Republican or a Democrat problem have the most serious problem of all! Ignorance is one thing, but blind disregard of truth leads to the downfall of nations! Become an independent thinker and sit back and laugh and watch the charade of answers that Harry Reid and Mitt Romney propose! Then support any one that proposes anything that doesn't include taxes or a government answer, even if it is rare to find one that does!

Tolstoy,
painting a boogeyman is using inuendo without fact, such as reid and romney's taxes and the dems having Ryan push granny off the cliff in their TV ads. Or you referring to my comment without the rest of the context of the post. We KNOW harry lies and will allow no votes in the senate that would enhance and stibilize entitlement programs, so there is NO inuendo in my reference to harry.

Were you having problems with my taking 1ket's words and substituting harry for koch brothers? I see, without the typical dem double-standard, the world does not work for you so you make erroneous assumptions about my posts.

Glad we could get that figured out - sorry you were in the dark for so long.

FT,
are you harry's membership clerk? if not, how do you know his standing in the church? If you are his membership clerk, aren't you betraying the confidentiality requirement of your calling?
