Charles Koch: Attacks From Obama Beneath Dignity of Office
An exclusive interview with Megyn Kelly.
Last night on The Kelly File, Megyn Kelly aired an exclusive interview with Charles Koch, who is one half of the Democratic Party’s favorite evil scapegoat, the Koch brothers. You can watch the full interview in the two videos below.
Despite the fact that the Kochs provide tens of thousands of people with jobs and contribute millions of dollars to causes which are supported by liberals, the left’s attacks on the Kochs have been relentless in recent years.
Harry Reid has singled out the Kochs on the senate floor hundreds of times. Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and many liberals in media have piled on as well.
The first interview segment gives viewers some background on the Koch family and the successful business they built as well as their company practices which are actually quite forward-thinking.
Koch suggests that it’s possible for employees to make more than their managers if they’re successful and that even as CEO, he is subject to an annual performance review.
The segment concludes with Koch saying that he opposes all forms of corporate welfare and that free trade is the best way to bring people out of poverty.
The second half of the interview deals with politics and the attacks from Democrats. Megyn Kelly asks him if he believes the smears from Obama are beneath the dignity of the office of the president, which he affirms.
Koch laughs and says “definitely” when asked if the Democrats have tried to make boogeymen out of him and his brother. “That’s a full time job on their part.”
Koch also acknowledges that he’s received death threats but that he’s doing what he can to make the country better.
When pressed on his political views, Koch says that he’s a Classical Liberal and explains that he believes all people should be allowed to live in peace and improve their lives as they see fit.
In fact, he suggests that Republicans are hurtling America towards a financial cliff just as the Democrats are, only at a slightly slower pace.

I have long wondered at the vitriol from the Democrats, and now I know: he has a strong streak of decency, and they think he should be on their plantation. This is similar to Sarah Palin and Ben Carson.
Look! It’s Emmanuel Goldstein!
Not a very bright interviewer. “Classical liberal? What’s that?!”
As a TV journalist, Megyn Kelly is very good looking.
That would be (as I understand it), somebody who believe in free speech even if they disagree with the content, equality of the races and sexes instead of constantly degrading certain ones, a certain voluntary social responsibility of the wealthy to uplift the less fortunate and preserve nature. Nowadays, we call these people ‘Republicans’because they sure aren’t Democrats.
We can’t define such people as ‘republicans,’ unless you preface it with ‘corrupt, abject cowards who otherwise…’
Or perhaps she asked the question in order to allow her interview subject to educate the viewer. Such a move would be a sign of a very bright interviewer indeed.
Not a very bright interviewer. “Classical liberal? What’s that?!”
Not a very bright comment. Still chafing over the Kelly-Trump fiasco?
Actually, ‘classic liberalism’ a political ideology, a branch of liberalism which advocates civil liberties and political freedom with representative democracy under the rule of law and emphasizes economic freedom.
The liberals of today are fascists and too ignorant to understand that about themselves and their horrifying political heroes.
The United States was founded on the principles of classical liberalism. The last thing the modern liberal progressive is is classically liberal. “Liberal” is derived from the Latin “liber,” free.
Today’s classical liberals are the constitutional conservatives who try to preserve what’s left of our founding principles. Those libertarians who haven’t been infected with progressive ideology, or who aren’t just interested in smoking dope and banging prostitutes, might also be regarded as classical liberals.
For any who do not understand ‘Classical Liberal’ please Google the term.

Seems like the kind of guy you wouldn’t mind claiming as a friend.
Unless you’re Dirty Harry Reid.
Yes, he came across as a decent, humble man. I loved the story about his father’s advice.
The Koch brothers got their wealth by producing useful goods and employing large numbers of people. They oppose all government subsidies for businesses, and they give money to hospitals, educational & cultural institutions, etc.
Democrats think they’re evil.
Democrats and their allies are largely funded by:
1. Money taken from taxpayers and funneled through Democrat-friendly interest groups and Democrat-favored enterprises.
2. A billionaire who got wealthy by market speculation and by ruining currencies and impoverishing average people; a billionaire who sees himself as a kind of messianic figure and who seems to have a hand in overwhelming Western countries with hostile and demanding invaders who will ruin them forever.
Democrats think Soros money is pure and virtuous.
Koch is a “plutocrat,” Soros is a “philanthropist.” This lesson was brought to you by the letter “P,” or (D).
What an outstanding interview with an outstanding American!
Obama holding the office is beneath the dignity of the office.
Obama’s dignity level is lower down than whale-shit.
“Obama’s dignity level is lower down than whale-shit.”
Really? You had to “go” there? Why would you degrade the virtuous properties of whale poop by making such a comparison. Whale poop could help heal the planet and slow the rising of the oceans.© I’m not shitting you, this is what SCIENTIST say. The science is settled. A quick search of “usefulness of whale poop” in your favorite internet browser could give you startling results.

Can’t we all just get along? President 0bama is intent on destroying the country he hates, any way he can. His “blunders” are indistinguishable from deliberate treacherous treasonous acts of a craven coward.
Seems like such a nice guy. It is difficult to imagine Koch or his brother eating babies, but who am I to call Harry Reid liar?
Megyn is just another member of the Journolist camp except she sometimes favors the right rather than the left. Still, she’s typical of those people, they know little of the world and much of their conceit, with have an over-sized sense of entitlement.
Yet, give her a slight pass on her question asking what a classical liberal is. Too many today have little knowledge of that and what it once meant.
Progressives hate progress that isn’t canned political fodder such as is under the Socialism brand.
Nothing is beneath the dignity of the left. But then, the left has no dignity at all. Just vitriol for everyone with whom they disagree.
Tammy Bruce called the Obamas a couple of ‘low-lifes’ way back when. She was right on.
