    Obama challenges Chamber to support his agenda

    Supposedly, Obama's job is support the American people, the everyday American.

    The fact that he has to, wants to, decides to address a body of people whose priorities don't include supporting Americans, that in and of itself is ironic.

    He didn't beg, no.  But just asking this organization to support Americans, when, in fact, this organization just solicited millions of dollars to defeat a Democratic agenda, is asinine.

        We're still left with somebody better than a republican.  Whoopie!

        A large portion of Americans don't one damn about anything except themselves. They don't give a damn about the wars we've gotten sucked into, they don't give a damn about the sick, the poor .. most Americans have not been affected by any of these things. Trying to get Americans thinking about AGW, about pollution, about anything more than what's on sale at Wal-Mart this week?

        Good Luck.

        The next shiny distraction is all that matters to most of them.

        I remember in the run up to invading Iraq, one news outfit interviewed the goober on the street about what he thought about it.

        "I don't care how many people have to die,
        as long as the price of gas doesn't go up."

        Wonderful country, isn't it?
