    But a New York Times story published last month about the strategy puts a decidedly different spin on it. “Democrats say the strategy of spotlighting the Koch brothers’ activities is politically shrewd,” the story says. “The majority leader [Reid] was particularly struck by a presentation during a recent Senate Democratic retreat, which emphasized that one of the best ways to draw an effective contrast is to pick a villain, one of his aides said. And by scolding the Koch brothers, Mr. Reid is trying to draw them out, both to raise their public profile, and also to help rally the Democratic base. The approach stems, in part, from Democratic-funded research showing that many voters believe the political system is rigged in favor of the super rich.”
    After I read that passage, Reid replied simply, “So?”
    I pressed: “This is a political strategy, isn’t it, as well as a fundraising strategy? The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has been raising money like gangbusters after you’ve been talking about the Koch brothers and as you said, you’ve given America the villain that they need to identify with as you struggle with your Democrats to overcome the objections to Obamacare and try to remain the majority.”
    Again, Reid’s reply: “So?”

    The Koch Brothers, and their reputation are considered nothing more than collateral damage by the vicious, ruthless and power-hungry Reid, who has his own set of billionaire brothers who line his pockets.

    Meanwhile, Reid’s strategy has appeared to damage his reputation as well. In a recent poll, Americans would rather see Charles Koch as president than Harry Reid, and by a wide margin.

    The Dems are going to learn that their extremism will not fly with the American people.
