The White House may want to diffuse its spat with the Chamber of Commerce, but Big Labor clearly has no such intentions.

Anna Burger, secretary-treasurer of the Service Employees International Union and chairwoman of the five-union federation Change to Win, slammed the big business lobby and its president, Tom Donohue, in a letter delivered today to House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank and Rep. Spencer Bachus, the ranking Republican on the committee.

I belong to a local Chamber of Commerce chapter. I for one want to thank the Obama administration for attacking the U.S. Chamber. For years I have had to put up with the incongruous aspect of so many of our local members being Democrats or at least left leaning. Obama’s attack has left members no middle ground and because they love the Chamber have had to choose sides, and they are in almost all cases choosing the Chamber in this spat. For every large company that is a supporting member of the Chamber there are at least 50 very small businesses. For years our Chapter leaders have tried to keep politics tamped down at our meetings. Now they are front and center...or should I say “Right.”

What a team. Big labor and their ‘lick-spittle chums, Apple Corp. and Proctor & Gamble. Few things more pathetic than when you totally sell out, I mean the old 200% sellout, on global warming. P&G and Apple must have a few actual scientists around the shop, were talking here about human scientists, men who stand up on the own two feet. Might have asked them about Global Warming before you hopped into the sack with Al.

Thirty two years ago the local union told us the C of C was a businessman’s union and we had to oppose them with our own union.
