Posted on 10/21/2013 10:53:58 AM PDT by Olog-hai
U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue suggested Monday that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) should reconsider his role as congressional troublemaker.
A reporter followed up by noting that the conventional wisdom is that the business community wants the Texas senator to sit down and shut up.
Well, that might be one thing we can work on, Donohue quipped.

Golly, lots of people getting smoked out by just one man’s actions. I wonder why the establishment went all out to make sure he didn’t get into the Senate.

The Chamber of Commerce is happy with Obamacare as long as its amended to suit their wishes.

Looks like Cruz is living in everyones head rent free.
One man of principle could blow this thing up.
One man with the guts to tell the truth has got them all spooked and shaking.
When do we get the camps open??
I have to say one thing about America’s Senator Ted Cruz, he is able to separate the Pariahs from the Patriots just by breathing.
God Bless him, Mike Lee, Sarah Palin and the rest of the Patriots that held strong.
Mr. Donohue doesn’t want anything to get in the way of his pet projects like hiring illegal aliens.
Maybe the chamber should snuggle up to the occupy wall street crowd if they dislike us uppity conservatives so much.
Basically we are back to the 1970s again with the old dinosaur GOP acting like the tax collector for the welfare state, and the old dinos protecting their personal scams and their precious “respectability.”
That explains why the Chamber of Commerce has been on the communist side of issues in recent years.
Looks like someone has their panties in a wad because all the money he sends to Congressional “Leadership PACS” might not have the intended effect.
It sucks when true American Patriots/Citizens voice their displeasure over bought and paid for slime-bag politicians (on both sides).
Someone needs to ship this fellow a case of Kleenex.
Looks like we need an alternative to this group. They are also pushing Common Core.
They put an Assistant Postmaster General in charge of the Chamber of Commerce!
Agreed, the notion that they want to stifle the voice of the people who elected Senator Cruz is frightening in and of itself...
From 1969 to 1976 he was the US Official Deputy Assistant Postmaster General, where he helped "convert the Post Office from a government department into the quasi-private U.S. Postal Service." Back then, he told Newsday, "you could make a deal in the government.
Born in Brooklyn to a production manager at the American Can Company, Donohue was raised on Long Island and studied at St. John's University, before pursuing an MA in Business at Adelphi University (1965). His grandfather worked for New York City and was a member of the Tammany Hall machine.
"The principles we released today represent our good faith efforts to continue to work together to achieve comprehensive immigration reform. The fact that business and labor can come together to negotiate in good faith over contentious issues should be a signal to Congress and the American people that support for immigration reform is widespread and growing, and is important to our economy and our society. This is an urgent national priority and Congress should act accordingly."
Rule #1 when responding to ANY reporter’s question:
“Never accept the premise of their question!”
It means they’ve already written their agenda driven story and only want a sound bite from you, to pretend it was your idea.
