President Obama, Stand Up to the U.S. Chamber and Fight for Disclosure - 0 views

  •  
    "We will fight it through all available means […] To quote what they say every day on Libya, all options are on the table."
    That's what the chief lobbyist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce told the New York Times after hearing the White House may issue an executive order requiring corporations that do business with the government to disclose their political spending.
    The Chamber's pledge to fight tooth and nail to keep the American people in the dark about conflicts of interest in government is appalling, but not surprising.
    If corporations and their executives are spending on politicians in an effort to "win" government contracts, the American people should know. 
    Urge President Obama to stand up to the U.S. Chamber and fight for disclosure. Sign the petition today!

Paul Starobin - Don't expect Obama to be Superman - 0 views

    Why can't President Obama stop the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? Why can't he get the Israelis and Palestinians to stop squabbling and make peace? Why can't he get the Europeans to contribute more troops to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan? Why can't he forge a global treaty to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases?

    Why can't he . . . well, you get the point. Obama, it turns out, is not Superman.

    What can Obama do?

    "He probably can and should do more to assuage the anxiety of those in the way of the oil," said Langston. "It's just symbolism, but symbolic leadership matters, and people like to be reassured that the president cares about the things they care about, and about them."
