I THINK WE’VE ALL PRETTY MUCH FIGURED OUT THAT EVERY TIME BARRY THE EMPTY SUIT MAN CHILD SAYS THESE WORDS
EVERYTHING THAT FOLLOWS IS A LIE
HE MAY SAY "PERFECTLY CLEAR" OR ANY VARIATION OF THESE/THOSE WORDS
AND IT’S A LIE
LIKE MOST LEFTIST/PROGRESSIVE/MARXISTS HE IS ALMOST TOTALLY INCAPABLE OF TELLING THE TRUTH
IT WOULD BE MOST AMUSING IF NOT FOR THE GRAVE DAMAGE THESE IDIOTS ARE DOING TO OUR COUNTRY
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama prodded American businesses to do their share to help the economy, calling on executives to "get in the game" and begin investing nearly trillion accumulating on their balance sheets.
The president, in a speech Monday to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, called for a cooperative relationship with the private sector and argued government and business have a shared responsibility. He highlighted new efforts by his administration to improve the nation’s infrastructure, invest more on entrepreneurs and foster greater innovation.
But to a polite, subdued audience he offered a stout defense of government regulations, even as he promised to eliminate those that are too burdensome. He reached back to history, invoking President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s outreach to corporate leaders and evoking the strains of self-sacrifice expressed by President John Kennedy.
"I want to be clear: even as we make America the best place on earth to do business, businesses also have a responsibility to America," Obama said. "As we work with you to make America a better place to do business, ask yourselves what you can do for America. Ask yourselves what you can do to hire American workers, to support the American economy, and to invest in this nation."

Obama’s Canossa Moment

President Obama makes what some members of the media call "peace" with American business, when he speaks at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today.
Part of that "making peace" has involved signing onto policies largely shaped and pushed by Republicans in Congress after Obama and his Democrat leaders on Capitol Hill ran the U.S. business environment into the ditch. And the speech at the U.S. Chamber is seen as nothing more than one more piece of that pie.
"We don’t want to do it," says a White House media aide. "Valerie Jarrett has been walking around here just cursing the U.S. Chamber since she got here, and she has been privately working against this speech ever since it was initially proposed back in the fall."
To prepare for the speech, the White House has been making an effort to speak to representatives of U.S. corporations — and Chamber members — for ideas to include in the speech. "It’s the same old, same old," says the White House source. "Tax cuts, credits, trade agreements, stuff that our base of support wants nothing to do with. I don’t really think people at the Chamber realize just how reviled they are over here. And it’s killing us that our guy has do this."
The U.S. Chamber is rolling out the red carpet, encouraging all of its senior board members and Washington representatives to be present. The White House, apparently believing it was in a position to negotiate, requested such a turnout if the President were to speak.
What some in the White House find interesting isn’t that the Chamber would have Obama, but that the Chamber believes that Obama and his team might somehow be buying into its agenda.
"Look, you can set this up as we’re eating crow, or that we’re waving the white flag because we know that unemployment really is up around 10 percent and we know we need the Chamber to help us, or whatever," says the source. "But we’re doing this because politically we need to be seen over there, moderating. We will not forget what the Chamber did to our guy over the first two years. They sought to ruin his presidency, and we see a way to kneecap these guys, we will."
