buzz on nashville chamber's role in bush visit

There was some email traffic yesterday afternoon among some of my Democratic biz friends about the Nashville Chamber's efforts to help the Bush Administration build a crowd for the President's day after State of Union speech visit to Nashville next week. "Pimping for the Prez" was one of the more stinging email subject lines that caught my eye.
While it seems innocent enough for the Chamber leadership to circulate invites they received from the White House to "their board and others," there are legitimate concerns that the Chamber - with bipartisan membership (my firm is a member) - should be sensitive to the facts that this is an election year (the prez ain't on the ballot, but there are contested congressional races, a Governor's race, and scores of local races on ballots from May through November in this city), and that this President has polarized the nation on issues that matter to biz leaders - from the runaway deficits (trade and domestic), skyrocketing energy costs, to foreign missteps that impact our economic standing in the world.

Is is possible that this is the same Nashville Business Chamber that raised over $250,000 to support the efforts to raise the sales tax in Davidson County to directly fund schools with the increase? The same schools that are struggling to meet requirements under President Bush's federally mandated programs such as No Child Left Behind which came with no funding to meet the additonal requirements? What was the campaign slogan, "Educating Children Might Be the Most Important Thing We Do as a Community"? Way to play both sides of the fence Nashville Business Chamber.
