    Business Fights Back
    His organization under attack by the White House, the president of the Chamber of Commerce stands by his defense of free enterprise.
    By KIMBERLEY A. STRASSEL

    "One thing I can tell you: They can go out and chase me and chase the Chamber and put stuff in the newspaper. It only . . . drives more and more support. . . . You think we are going to blink because a couple of people are out shooting at us? Tell 'em to put their damn helmets on."

    Them's fighting words, all the more so when delivered in the feisty, New York accent of U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue.
