Obama disses U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Last week Mr. Obama held a jobs summit at the White House. In attendance were union bosses, corporate CEO's, and various elected officials. The purpose was to develop ways to create jobs and get the millions of Americans making up the 10% unemployment rate back to work. However, one important group was missing - the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It is an association of thousands of small businesses all across the country. Small businesses create more than 70% of all new jobs in the U.S. However, Mr. Obama either didn't think it was important for them to be there or simply didn't want them there.

It appears that it was more a case of he didn't want them there. Why ?? Politics - plain and simple. The Chamber of Commerce has been very vocal in it's opposition to Obama's cap and trade legislation which in his own words will cause electric rates in the U.S. "to necessarily skyrocket." Furthermore, they have opposed ObamaCare. Their reasoning is because small businesses will be unable to afford the new taxes and government mandates included in both pieces of legislation. The Chamber's arguments and reasoning make perfect sense. Obama playing politics with American jobs does not. Apparently, politics is more important to Obama than the millions of American families in dire straits because of loss of work due to the recession.

I saw a T-shirt the other day which said - "A recession is when you lose your job. Recovery is when Obama loses his." Amen. Enough said.

P.S. Starting tomorrow and lasting the rest of the week this blog is gonna get extremely "Czar-castic." The conservatives out there are gonna love it. The Obamanites ain't.
