Obama summons business leaders to White House ahead of key immigration vote
Washington Times ^ | 6/24/13

Posted on 06/24/2013 5:26:49 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Mere hours before members of the U.S. Senate are scheduled to take a key test vote on comprehensive immigration legislation, President Obama will host a group of business leaders at the White House Monday to spur the lawmakers on.

Mr. Obama is scheduled to host a meeting at 2 p.m. with nearly a dozen CEOs, businessmen and entrepreneurs “to discuss the importance of commonsense immigration reform including the Congressional Budget Office analysis that concludes immigration reform would promote economic growth and reduce the deficit,” a White House official said.

Obama ‘summons’.

Only lemmings and useful idiots would obey a summons from this worthless phony.

The Russians have his number, so why don’t the rest of Americans?

democrats will import 80 million new democrat voters from the 3rd world so they democrats/Obama can turn the USA into a socialist state.

This is their plan to end the United States and so to end freedom in the world forever. Democrats just couldn’t stand it that for the first time people set up a government by the people where people were free ,and so democrats have to destroy it. This is a plan to make slaves of all of us forever.

Stop Amnesty.

Tell congressmen we don’t want ANY bill passed, no matter what they promise. This bill is Amnesty for 30 million illegals, and a 1000 page bill that brings in 80 million 3rd world immigrants. The bill will destroy the U.S. and will turn the USA into a socialist state as is the democrats/Obama’s plan.

Look boys....don’t worry. We’re going to target everyone who has these legal illegals and make them join a union as part of their legal status requirements.

When the Master whistles, the lapdogs in business suits leap. If a CEO does not have a busy schedule 24 hrs. before a Senate vote is taken on immigration, that CEO should be fired.

Common sense is not to be found in over a thousands pages of legalize fine print that will not be read before being voted on. Instead you will find someone else in the fine print. “We have to pass it so we can find out what’s in it” Is the first step on the broad and easy road to Hell.

Conservatives need to learn a bitter lesson. The business community is NOT our FRIEND!

He's giving them their marching orders.

Do the fools think somehow an influx of unskilled uneducated labor will help them? Maybe in the meat packing plants and in some construction, but that's an iffy proposition at best.

Most of the CEOs and their companies are nobodies but learning their identities makes it easier to avoid dealing with them.

The independence of America was won in part by a complete boycott of British finished goods. Homespun won the day. We might just have to do it again.

Per a White House official, the CEOs and business owners scheduled to take part in the Monday discussion are:

• Steve Case, chairman and CEO, Revolution LLC;

• Jason Berry, owner, Blueberry Farms of Georgia and Berry Farms;

• Farooq Kathwari, chairman, President and CEO of Ethan Allen Interiors Inc.;

• Bricia Lopez, co-owner of the Guelaguetza Restaurante;

• Karen Lozano, founder and chief technology officer, FibeRio Technology;

• Sunil Puri, founder, First Rockford Group;

• Dilawar Syed, CEO Yonja Media Group;

• Alex Torrenegra, founder, VoiceBunny and WeHostels;

• Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO, founder and president, Chobani.

The emperor "summons" -- and "VoiceBunny" responds!

It's beginning to look like the S&P 100 CEOs respect Obama about as much as the Russians and the Chinese do.

Yep.. And it’s always about the Benjamins. There is no sense of right or wrong. And yet another monstrosity bill being pushed into a holiday recess for maximum drama. Here comes another long hot summer of discontent.

I could be wrong, but all of the business leaders listed, except Case and Berry are muslim or Latino/as.

Probably just a coincidence.
