The Democrats’ McCarthyite obsession with the Koch brothers is one of the most contemptible features of he political landscape plowed by President Obama, who established the practice early on in his administration of the government going after private citizens.
You’ll remember that at the outset of this presidency, the White House went directly after Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. I had covered the White House for more than a decade, and I couldn’t ever remember hearing private citizens singled out by the White House for attack.
So now the new McCarthyism is legitimized and rolling ahead full steam. Anyone who opposes the Obama administration should not just fear attack themselves, but note that the hostility will surely trickle down into the bureaucracy, where the Lois Lerners of the world will understand what to do.
Here’s Harry pounding out the message. And pounding and pounding. Cheeburger, cheeburger, cheeburger.
