Koch Brothers Promise to Give Barack Hussein Obama "The Mother of All Wars" in 2012

Or something like that, according to Brad Friedman at Mother Jones. He's got audio from June 26, 2011 quoting Charles Koch saying:

But we've been talking about - we have Saddam Hussein, this is the Mother of All Wars we've got in the next 18 months, for the life or death of this country.
So Jimmy Hoffa was not declaring war in his controversial Labor Day speech yesterday, he was acknowledging a war that had already been declared.

"We didn't start this war – the right wing did."
Or something like that.

Aside from the martial rhetoric in politics being so asinine so much of the time, I don't mind it as long as no one is getting hurt. Gabby Giffords doesn't count as her assailant was crazy (i.e. alleged assailant is allegedly crazy) and not motivated by some politican's speech.

Would a war of attrition between the loud-mouthed political warmongers on both sides, leaving them both broke and defeated be too much to hope for? Yes, it would. But a guy can hope. Sometimes things do change.
