In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Koch Brothers Choose Walker

The fabulously wealthy and politically generous conservative brothers Charles and David Koch appear to have settled on Scott Walker as their candidate of choice, potentially a huge boon to the Wisconsin governor as he competes for funding and votes against fellow Republicans.

From the New York Times:

On Monday, at a fund-raising event in Manhattan for the New York State Republican Party, David Koch told donors that he and his brother, who oversee one of the biggest private political organizations in the country, believed that Mr. Walker was the Republican Party’s best hope for recapturing the White House.

“We will support whoever the candidate is,” said Mr. Koch, according to two people who attended the event. “But it should be Scott Walker.”

The remark — made before dozens of top New York donors who had gathered to hear Mr. Walker speak at the Union League Club — could effectively end one of the most closely watched contests in the “invisible primary,” a period where candidates crisscross the country seeking not the support of voters but the blessing of their party’s biggest donors and fund-raisers.

With the Koch Brothers primary now apparently over, the pressure is on for candidates to win the as-yet undecided Adelson primary, which will decide who taps the bulging coffers of the pro-Israel conservative billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

  1. Scott Walker is the man! He’s got my vote.
    And he’s still young enough to make Hillbilly look like the zombie dinosaur she is.

  2. What a shocker! As much as I admire Walker as a decent human being and terrific governor, he is not, imo, presidential material, Can also say the same thing for the rest of the herd – no one stands out.
    If ‘ordinary’ is the new norm, then I guess Walker can cram for his finals in foreign policy and economics and do a decent job. On the job training is not exactly what we need, however.

    1. I would vote for Walker if he’s the candidate, but I agree, no one stands out. The Dems don’t have anyone exciting either and Hillary isn’t going over well. Bakery workers in NH wouldn’t even shake her hand today. Also, her campaign admits they’re pre-screening people for her small meetings with everyday Americans, which means all her campaign stops are a sham. Why is that not a surprise.

  3. The final step to keeping your home dry is the addition of an underground drainage system.
    Creating a theme garden is easier when it’s related
    to something you’re interested in or have a passion for.
    Concrete can work wonderfully as a retaining wall to stop erosion from allowing earth to fall into your yard.

  4. I like walker. I’d like to see a walker / Rubio ticket. walker for 8 years and then Rubio take over for 8 years. this would give Rubio big time learning experience. he would not be as goofy as biden!!!
