Some Things Better for Koch

We heard earlier that David Koch, brother, had actually opened up a bit and answered some reporters' questions today at an RNC-related event, and now some quotes are dribbling out.  Politico has piece just up that reveals that he disagrees with the GOP platform on a few things:  gay marriage, the likely need for defense cuts and being open to tax increaaes. 

This doesn't shock me completely.  He's a NYC  guy and a big patron of the arts--I even attended a dance/Beethoven event at the Lincoln Center theater named for him awhile back.  So he does, at least, mix with some progressive people.
Koch said he thinks the U.S. military should withdraw from the Middle East and said the government should consider defense spending cuts, as well as possible tax increases to get its fiscal house in order – a stance anathema to many in the Republican Party.
