Yes, that US chamber of Commerce. You know, these guys:
According to tax records unearthed by Bloomberg News, the health insurance lobby secretly gave $86.2 million to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 2009 to try to prevent the health care bill from becoming law. This year, the chamber raised nearly $33 million in secret donations for political ads in the midterm elections, almost all of which was used to elect Republicans who have vowed to repeal the health care law.
So they spend over $100million to try and derail you, time to fight back, right?
After months of all-out political war with the nation's most powerful business lobby, President Obama appears to be on the verge of launching a dramatic peace offering to the president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue.
Sure, why the hell not go make a speech at their little shindig? Maybe if you're really super nice to them, they'll stop picking on you! Have you really still not figured out that there is no "peace offering," no olive branch, no appeasement you can offer these guys that they will not spit on then smack you in the face with? How are you the only person in the world who does not get that?
The only way this speech idea makes any sense is if A: the speech contains the phrase "go to hell you little rat bastards!" or B: if you go Samson on them - you know, like the guy in the Grateful Dead song, just pull the whole building down on their heads.
Just promise me you'll think about it.
