    So they can unilateraly give him his Christmas bonus?

    WASHINGTON — Hiring is anemic but corporate profits are up, and President Barack Obama is having 20 CEOs over to talk about how to tap that cash to boost jobs.

    But don't count on the president to reprise the "fat cat" scolding he gave bankers a year ago. No, this is not a woodshed moment.

    For Obama and the business sector, Wednesday's meeting is a wary embrace.

    With new tax and trade deals as enticements, Obama is taking yet another step toward the political middle as he moves to confront a still-weak economic recovery and the capital's new political alignment.

    Both sides come to Wednesday's session with their respective wishes: Obama wants the private sector to use its record profits to increase employment; executives want the administration to ease regulations they perceive as onerous.

    Since the election, Obama has been holding private meetings with individual executives to discuss potential job growth strategies. But the higher-profile meeting Wednesday also serves a larger public relations purpose: It shifts attention from past confrontation to rolled-up-sleeves cooperation.

    "We have to be competitive and the private sector needs to stand up," said Austan Goolsbee, the chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. "There is opportunity perhaps in the fact that the corporate sector has begun to rebound and there is cash on their balance sheets."

    Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said some companies are recovering, others are waiting for demand to increase and others are "looking for some certainty in the regulatory environment."

    "Companies are sitting on a great deal of cash so it would be very important for the president to understand what more could we do to encourage investment that is going to lead to job creation," she said.

    Since they constructed the first slave ship

    these corporations do not compromise nor
    make deals with anyone that shows weakness or vacilation to their demands.

    After getting every darn thing they wanted for the past 2 years,
    they will give up nothing

    but will expect more bailouts and corporate welfare, that our grandchildren will have to pay for.

    Common Sense

    Common sense predicates that when one lives in a partial democracy,
    but complete corporate state that worships the dollar as a god

    and that politicians are bought and sold like,
    microwave ovesn and portable hard drives,

    one learns how to take a small part of a trillion dollas set up a National Black advocacy machine in Washington.

    Malcolm X was not a god just a man and not a perfect ,man even a falable man but one failure he did not make,
    was to mention in the final chapter of his autobiography, that in terms of real political strategy, we should have a 10 billion dollar lobbying concern in Washington DC.
