In a 75-minute interview with POLITICO, Donohue dismissed recent defections by Apple and at least four other companies, which quit over the Chamber’s opposition to Democratic climate change legislation — as essentially meaningless. “Members come and go all the damn time,” he said.”

The US Chamber of Commerce has a massive 3 million members, how the heck is the defection of Apple to the 0bamabot camp relevant? It's a tiny blip.

Blurb from the The U.S. Chamber of Commerce site:

“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business federation representing 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations. More than 96% of U.S. Chamber members are small businesses with 100 employees or fewer.”

That’s true. But rarely — if ever — have companies jumped ship in such a public way”

Who cares whether the quietly or they leave while squealing like the rats that they are? Bottom line is, members come and go all the time, and it's no worse now than it was before.
