On Monday David Koch asked Scott Walker to the prom. Sort of, but not really. On Tuesday, the brothers decided they don't know for sure who their date will be. There are just so many!
Charles Koch said he is considering throwing his political might into the Republican presidential primary for the first time and is likely to provide financial help to several contenders before settling on a single candidate.
Koch, his brother David and their team have identified five candidates who have the right message and "a good chance of getting elected," he told USA TODAY in an exclusive interview at Koch Industries' headquarters. They are Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marco Rubio of Florida.
"Those are the ones we have talked to the most and who seem to be the possible leaders," he said.
"What we've told them all is that right now, we're not supporting anyone," Koch said. "We're telling them that if they want our support, one way to get it is articulating a good message to help Americans get a better understanding and a better appreciation of how certain policies … will benefit them and will benefit all America."
Yes, certain policies like ending Social Security and Medicare, repealing the Affordable Care Act, tossing poor people onto the street hungry and cold, and eliminating the minimum wage so we can all work for peanuts!
So we understand things here, Charles and David Koch do not care about benefiting all America. They only care about boosting their personal wealth to the point where they can own the whole country.
Dance, boys, dance! Who will win the beauty contest?
