The chamber of commerce wants: BUSINESS COMMERCE to Flourish! JOBS! A Strong Economy!

Are those 'Conservative' principles only?

Let's review:
Obama & Jackasscrats are Anti-Business. Only care about Union Jobs and despise A Capitalist Economy. They think we should cast aside American Exceptionalism and become a 2nd rate Socialist State thinking we've had our turn at the top.

Obama hates them because they oppose him and expose his stupidity. Dictator wannabees hate that.

The group, which has already spent millions on ads opposing California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, is also considering dumping more money into that race, a Chamber official said.

The Chamber also plans buys in the districts of seven incumbent Democratic House members: Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona, Brian Baird of Washington, David Obey and Steve Kagen of Wisconsin, and John Boccieri and Zack Space of Ohio. Baird and Obey are retiring.

With the exception of some Blue Dog Democrats, the Chamber's considerable advertising budget has gone largely toward helping Republicans. The new buys would bring the Chamber's presence in campaigns this year to 50 House races and 12 Senate races.

What Happened to Change We Can Believe In?

By FRANK RICH
Published: October 23, 2010

The much acclaimed new documentary about the global economic meltdown,“Inside Job,” has it right.

As its narrator, Matt Damon, intones, our country has been robbed by insiders who “destroyed their own companies and plunged the world into crisis”— and then “walked away from the wreckage with their fortunes intact.” These insiders include Robert Rubin, who encouraged Citigroup to step up its investment in high-risk bets like Countrywide’s mortgage-backed securities. Rubin, now back as a rainmaker on Wall Street, collected more than $115million in compensation during this same period.

It should pain the White House that its departing economic guru, the Rubin protégé Lawrence Summers, is an even bigger heavy in “Inside Job” than in the hit movie of election season,“The Social Network.” Summers — like the former Goldman Sachs chief executive and Bush Treasury secretary Hank Paulson — is portrayed as just the latest in a procession of policy makers who keep rotating in and out of government and the financial industry, almost always to that industry’s advantage.

As the star economist Nouriel Roubini tells the filmmaker, Charles Ferguson, the financial sector on Wall Street has “step by step captured the political system” on “the Democratic and the Republican side” alike. But it would be wrong to single out Summers or any individual official for the Obama administration’s image of being lax in pursuing finance’s bad actors. This tone is set at the top.

Asked in “Inside Job” why there’s been no systematic investigation of the 2008 crash, Roubini answers:“Because then you’d find the culprits.”

The film also asks why federal prosecutors have not used rampant sex-and-drug trade on Wall Street as a tool for flipping witnesses to pursue the culprits behind the financial crimes that devastated the nation.

The Obama administration seems not to have a prosecutorial gene. It’s shy about calling a fraud a fraud when it occurs in high finance.

This caution was exemplified most recently by the secretary of housing and urban development, Shaun Donovan, whose response to the public outcry over the banks’ foreclosure shenanigans was to take to The Huffington Post last weekend.“The notion that many of the very same institutions that helped cause this housing crisis may well be making it worse is not only frustrating — it’s shameful,” he wrote.

Well, yes! Obama couldn’t have said it more eloquently himself. But with all due respect to Secretary Donovan’s blogging finesse, he wasn’t promising action. He was just stroking the liberal base while the administration once again punted.

In our new banking scandal, as in those before it, attorneys general in the states, where many pension funds were decimated by Wall Street Ponzi schemes, are pursuing the crimes Washington has not. The largest bill of reparations paid out by Bank of America for Countrywide’s deceptive mortgage practices —$8.4 billion — was to settle a suit by 11 state attorneys general on the warpath.

Since Obama has neither aggressively pursued the crash’s con men nor compellingly explained how they gamed the system, he sometimes looks as if he’s fronting for the industry.

The US Chamber of Commerce is activly suppurting the outsourcing of jobs to foriegn countries. The The US Chamber of Commerce right now is leading and funding a suit that would stop stock holders from preventing the boards of the companies they own from giving mega million dollar donations of their money to political candidates. AS Sharon Angles said, It is about America vs. Free Market. Angle, the Teapublicans, and the The US Chamber of Commerce are on the side of the Free Marketeers, not America.

Unions and liberal red tape are what drove jobs overseas........remember Clinton and NAFTA, remember Chrysler, and GM moving thier plants to Canada and Mexico while foreign companies built union free plants here in America and created jobs.....Why keep lying. Any five year old that can google can prove your lies in about one minute. Learn to grow up and get a real job and life, but you may have to wait till Odoodle is done with his world tour and distruction of our economy

The US Chamber of Horrors is a fascist right wing organization with ties to Koch Industries, oil cartels, and foreign money such as the Saudi royals, Murdoch's Newscorp, and other fascist run organizations.

They have used the fascist Supreme Court's "Citizens United" decision to open the floodgates to unliminted campaign donations from communists in China, terrorists, and many others.

Dirty money is awash in our politics, and the liberals are gutless to stop it, and the fascist Reich is gleefully spending to put into office any and all corporate Teagaggers who will do their shilling once elected.

Thankfully a few local Chambers of Commerce have distanced themselves from the national Chamber of Horrors to their credit.

This is just another Roberts court capitulation to corporate dominance over our politics, the end result of which for them is a fascist dictatorship.

Did you notice? All the last minute Democrat lying, crying, whinning, and name calling has ceased to make a difference? Americans have already made up their minds, and there is nothing they can do to alter the facts. We don't like them. It is that reverse Sally Fields thing. So funny.

If renewable energy is such a good deal then the environmentalists have nothing to fear from dissenting voices speaking out against it.

But what the left fears is that the ads will open the public's eyes to the stupidity of renewable energy.

The left is spending even more money that the Chamber of Commerce.

So if the voters are not embracing the Democrat message there is something wrong with the Democrats not the Chamber of Commerce.

If true, then there's noting wrong with that, since liberal donations are transparent, not the foreign terrorist money funneled in through the Rethuglican party or the Chamber of Horrors.

There is no evidence that foreign money is being used for political ads.

The AFL-CIO is also an international organization with access to foreign money also.

At the end of the day is doesn't matter where the money came from.

It is the Democrat record of performance and message that is turning the voters off.

This is a war of ideas and Obama is losing.
