    Link: Americans For Prosperity Launch Obama Attack - The Koch Brothers run a $6.1 million ad against Obama, Obama camp responds, calling it `BS.` Things are getting serious.

    Don`t like Obama much.
    But the fact the Koch brothers are so afraid of his administration tells me he must be doing something right, even if I have no clue what it is. Those two brothers are the poster-children for "screw the poor, give me their money!" Anything or anyone they are against is likely worth keeping.

    So Obama is lousy, but the alternative is far worse.

    This might matter if maybe all those American business owners who used to manufacture those things hadn`t moved their infrastructure over seas to begin with. We don`t even have the plants to build stuff here anymore. The real problem is those American business owners who still get government contracts to build overseas and still complain that their already subsidized operations are too difficult to operate in the US because they aren`t allowed to pay employees in dirty syringes and bird flu.

    This, though I`m not *quite* as down on Obama as you. Still a bit of a disappointment, though.

    unmercyfuldu, You don`t know what you`re talking about. Manufacturing is coming back to America under Obama. The Koch Brothers would rather spend $6mil on attack ads than another dime in taxes. There will come a day (soon) when the Supreme Court reverses their nonsense Citizens United decision. And put a limit on the nonsense these boneheads can spew. The twins are the worst thing to come out of America since the the mood ring. I hate those douche bags. I will someday piss on their graves.

    @Gerry1: If you are going for a ride in a car, and the driver is stoned, drunk and has a history of wrecking cars, wouldn`t you prefer someone ELSE was behind the wheel?

    Obama had NO experience and now it shows, for all to see, that he has no idea what he`s doing.
    Billions upon billions are being wasted, time to change drivers.

    There are lies, damned lies, and Republican lies.

    It`s like people don`t realize the gravity of the hole eight years of a Republican administration with a Republican Congress put us in. I hate politics, and I hate blind partisanship, but Republicans and Tea Party people really are racist, backwards non-nice individuals.

    5Cats, Stick to Canadian politics and leave The US ones to us.

    I`d rather see Obama stay in office, then the other two douche bags running. If not him, then Ron Paul. Look, I don`t mind religious people. But I do mind having them tell me what to do based off of them believing it is their lords will. Separation of Church and state, mutha fockas.

    Bottom line, the rooster Brothers are crooks, look them up. Evil scumbags. The hell with anything they say.

    Notice they didn`t mention that they would stop spending, just that the spending needs to be done here. That is why they are all crooks and need to be voted out.

    "It`s like people don`t realize the gravity of the hole eight years of a Republican administration with a Republican Congress put us in."

    If you are referring to Bush, 6 of his 8 years in office, had a democrat congress.

    In 2003, when the economy started to tank, it was because of that same democrat congress.

    The Senate and the House have the real power in this country.

    Truth aside, who uses harsh opinions and figures quoted from newspapers and magazines as if being said there constitutes fact. The only thing I saw from a real source was the number of homeless in America. 6.1million on an ad campaign that relies solely on mainstream media quotes as facts? Sounds like Obama isn`t the only one making poor calls on bad investments.

    I am not standing up either for or against Obama...but is there anyone, with a brain, that forms an opinion based on these type of one sided, propaganda commercials? Anyone who actually chooses a candidate based on the election commercials is brainless. Sadly, I am sure the answer is yes...

    Sure if you only focus on the fact that some money was spent outside of the USA it sound like something serious but let`s hear the whole story now.

    Why was the money spent in the first place?

    For good reasons because they don`t make those kind of decision without having to pass an elaborate strategical planning.

    If you think america has a closed economy why do you think they put so much emphasis on wall street?

    The human brain is very weak when it comes to repetition. Especially when it comes from a trusted source. People that have already made up their minds are not going to fall for the lies from either side but the people who are not political can be swayed with this type of nonsense. That is why Citizens United is one of the worst things to happen to this country. And why President Obama ripped the Supreme a new one a couple State of the Unions back. CU gives corporations too strong of a voice in elections. Or to put it another way it allows corporations a way to buy votes.

    That`s not the production cost; that`s the cost of the air time to run it.

    So, what`s the difference between this and the attack ads George Sorass is funding against Romney. Well, for starters, every fact in this add is documented and sourced.

    Gerry, I never knew you were a kochophobic! What the hell did the Koch brothers ever do to you? They employ over 50,000 Americans and another 20,000 overseas. How many jobs has George Sorass created? Oh, that`s right, he doesn`t create jobs, he manipulates foreign currencies. Every penny he ever made was someone else`s loss, and he still stands convicted of insider trading in France. He has never created anything of value in his entire life, yet he`s the patron saint of the left.

    I`ll take the Koch brothers any day over that ex-Nazi bastard.

    OldOllie, you have been manipulated by the media to believe the Koch brothers are good. And you have been manipulated by the media to believe that George Soros is evil. People on the left who are also into opinion media (like you are) are brainwashed to believe the exact opposite. Can`t you see how both sides are being played by the media? It is a waste of time and only adds negativity to your life.

    @markust: The "media" (aka the MSM) only plays for one side now: the liberal left.
    They back Obama to the Nth degree!
    While attacking Romney`s wife for... being a stay at home mom!
    They b1tch about how much Romney`s wife spends on clothes...
    While gushing over Michelle`s fashion tastes (which cost 2X as much as Ann`s ffs!)

    Get used to it: the MSM will constantly attack ONE side while constantly defending the OTHER.

    Koch brothers = capitalists = good.

    George Soros = socialist = bad.

    Is that so hard to understand?

    "What the hell did the Koch brothers ever do to you"
    To me and you as well OldOllie. The Kock brothers are responsible for the lawsuit which paid for the disastrous Supreme Court decision that Corporations are People. Thereby opening the door for SuperPacs that blatantly purchase political candidate. It made it legal to buy, sell, trade politics.

    They are major players in the downfall of this country. And the only motive is thier own personal gain. Greed. Because being billionaires wasn`t enough, they want more money. But the only money left they don`t have is yours and mine.

    I remember this story about this Jesus guy. It went on and on about how he wanted the rich job creators to feed and clothe the poor, and how their actions toward the poor and sick would dictate their future in the eyes of god.
    I hope you never subject yourself to that book filled with liberal propaganda. That Jesus guy was a total ******* socialist, Marxist, pig.

    The supreme court has never decided that corporations ARE people. That`s just an oversimplification that people who do not understand or who want to deliberately confuse the issue use.

    @Ozmose Can you cite the verse in the Bible where Jesus called on the GOVERNMENT (i.e., the Romans) to confiscate the property of the rich and "spread the wealth around?" Here`s a clue: socialism isn`t charity, and Obama isn`t Jesus.

    @Gerry So, your biggest problem with the Koch brothers is that the Supreme Court agreed with them, right? You apparently want the liberal media corporations to be able to make unlimited contributions (in kind) to the Democrats, but you want use the coercive power of the federal government to silence the voices of people who disagree with you. Does that pretty well sum up your position?

    By the way, who do you think OWNS corporations? Robots? Space aliens? Kangaroos?

    Whoever the Koch brothers are against I am compelled to vote for. One thing I know for certain is people don`t dish out money if it doesn`t influence an election, and no one should be able to influence a democratic election more than anyone else just because they have more money.
