Chamber of Commerce Vows to ‘Ramp Up’ Political Activity
New York Times ^ | October 12, 2010 | MICHAEL D. SHEAR

Posted on 10/12/2010 1:41:19 PM PDT by libstripper

The president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce vowed Tuesday to “ramp up” his group’s political activity in the face of what he called a “smear campaign” by the White House aimed at stemming Democratic losses in the midterm elections.

In a letter sent Tuesday to the chamber’s board of directors and its member companies, Thomas J. Donohue, the business association’s president, accused President Obama and his allies of falsely accusing the chamber of illegally funneling foreign money to its political efforts.

Once again the Illegal shows his great political insight and human relations brilliance by provoking even larger expenditurs aimed to stop him. Let's hope his SOTU callout of the SCOTUS justices who voted in the majority in Citizens United will similarly provoke those five to overturn ObamaCare. Along with being an evil communist and secret Mudslime who bitterly hates America and Americans, he's just plain dumb.

Its crystal clear that Obama is trying to engineer a planned economy. Last call America. It later than you think.

Heh. Think the Chamber of Commerce mailing list, combined with unlimited contribution limits, combined with an insult to the organization itself might get some cash for the battle!? I hope Obama made a big mistake here.

He could get June Cleaver out of the kitchen and campaigning against him.

He wasn’t satisfied with awakening “We the People”.

Now he’s gonna get everyone rising up against him.

Poor Hussein.

Lately every smear he attempts to float blows up in his face.

Good LORD...someone with actual GUTS!!! Obviously the guy could NOT be a typical republican politician, as he is not assuming the standard party posture of bending over, grabbing the ankles and selling out the nation.

And here is the Ubama regime's reaction:

While the Chamber of Commerce did oppose Obamacare I seem to remember they do support amnesty for the illegals so I don’t count on them to be a real ally for conservative causes.... only what seems to benefit business in general.

Right now, I don’t really care about that. If the COC is going after Obama, that’s all that matters.

The C of C people thought they were in a simple political battle with the Illegal. Then he and his appartchicks went after them, proving it was a fight to the death. Now they've learned what the rest of us already knew: that they have nothing to lose by throwing everything into the fight they can, and that's what they're doing.

I’d like to see more ridicule and laughter directed at the president. We can not really take this desperate man seriously any longer. He’s a joke.

Obama ticking off the Supreme Court during the State of the Union speech, $ 146.
Obama ticking off the military and his top men are leaving, $ 2579.
Obama ticking off the Chamber of Commerce, $ 5736,

Congress draws up articles of impeachment, Congressional hearings and investigations in his eligibility, and those who where involved in the greatest fraud brought on America sent to prison, and the Democrat Party and the MSM is damaged beyond repair............... PRICELESS !
