GOP Consultant: Koch Brothers Bought Ryan’s Nomination With $100 Million Promise

Veteran Republican political consultant, unrepentant dirty trickster, and recently reborn libertarian Roger Stone yesterday published a startling accusation against Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney on his personal website, The Stone Zone. According to Stone, the billionaire Koch brothers purchased the Republican vice presidential nomination for Ryan from Romney in late July by promising to fork over an additional $100 million toward “independent expenditure” campaigning for the GOP ticket.

Any such transaction would represent a serious violation of federal election laws and perhaps other statutes, aside from the ethical and character implications for all concerned. Although Stone is not the most reputable figure, to put it mildly, he has been a Republican insider, with access to the party’s top figures, over four decades. His credentials date back to Nixon’s Committee to Reelect The President and continue through the Reagan White House, the hard-fought Bush campaigns, and the Florida fiasco in 2000, when he masterminded the “Brooks Brothers riot” that shut down the Bush-Gore recount in Miami-Dade. Peruse his site and you’ll see his greatest hits and the attention he has drawn from major publications.

A survey popped up when I went to this page. It was by the DCCC. Question:Do you think Mitt Romney should release his tax records? I answered yes. When they ask for my name I put Misfit4RonPaul

Duh! And this is the Libertarian Party

backers all you GJ pawns support. As I said in another post, the LP was BOUGHT and PAID for years ago. Wise the "F" up. A vote for Johnson, Obama, Romney is a vote for the STATUS QUO.


1976-1982 USMC, Having my hands in the soil keeps me from soiling my hands on useless politicians.

So was it a worthwhile investment for the Kochtopus?

Rep. Ryan has never proposed a federal budget that amounted to anything other than re-arranging the table settings in the Titanic's first-class dining salon. No effective, practical, or even practicable amelioration of the continued spending increases by which the real damages are done to American civil society by government-gone-juramentado.

Notwithstanding, were there any better short-list choices that the puppeteers twisting the knobs on the Etch-A-Sketch could have been permitted by the silver-spoon-sucking Republican "establishment" kakistocracy?

Assuming that our Fraudulence-in-Chief and his little ACORN elves don't thuggishly thieve away the election in November, and we get ourselves another four years of Socialist Party "B" occupying the White House, what will an articulate and expressive Paul Ryan manage to do as Veep in an administration as thoroughly bought by the banksters as had been Dubbya's?

And can the Romnhoid manage a presidency in which his second banana is so obviously a boatload more presidential than he could ever be?

I Love it!

When you responded to the question about having Romney release his tax records with your name as Misfit4RonPaul, I got a big laugh from it.
