Huffington Post editorial director Howard Fineman criticized the White House's 2014 campaign strategy and said "campaigning against the Koch brothers is idiotic."
"I think for all of his social media savvy in the campaigns, they've dropped the ball in terms of really pushing this message out to targeted voters," Fineman said told MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Hardball. "I also see them wasting a lot of time running against the Koch brothers."
Fineman tore apart the Obama administration's approach to supporting Democratic candidates in the midterm elections and joined MSNBC host Joe Scarborough in criticizing the Democratic Party's ineffective and counterproductive obsession with the Koch brothers.
"I'm sorry, at least to me, campaigning against the Koch brothers is idiotic, because the Koch brothers aren't on the ballot," Fineman said.
