The Chamberís Uncanny Ultimatum

Tom Donohue, President of the Chamber of Commerce, made news yesterday when he said that if Republicans fail to pass amnesty they shouldn’t even bother fielding a presidential candidate. The media is reporting Donohue’s statement as an ultimatum to the GOP – pass amnesty or lose our support.

However, there is one slight problem that has been overlooked by the media. The Chamber has been dumping large sums of money into candidates who would not be caught dead backing amnesty on the campaign trail. In fact, many of them are running against amnesty.

Here is a breakdown of Chamber spending on behalf of establishment candidates who have expressed opposition to the Chamber’s official position on immigration:

I hope Handel or Broun win the runoff. But I trust Jack Kingston more than Perdue on immigration. Jack Kingston will be like Mike Enzi.

Chamber candidates should be labeled “Chamber Maidens” just to make things easy.

Or “Chamber Pols,” similar to “Chamber Pots” and for the same reason.

Apparently patriotism is of little importance to the Chamber.

They almost all liars.

It's time to stop using the "Amnesty" word and talk about "Legalization".

Many GOP define amnesty as citizenship...which they ostensibly oppose.

However, almost ALL of them support legal status for those here illegally.

Criminals all.

Handel is pro gay and a dues paying member of the Lincoln republic. She is a profligate spender and an old school GOP elitist. Kingston is a snake
