It’s not the unions or Obama’s suffocating economy. Clearly the blame for the demise of Hostess and Twinkies everywhere is with Mitt Romney.

They run with this ridiculous talking point in spite of the fact that the BCTGM union is responsible for the downfall of Hostess. But hey, a group that never takes responsibility has to find someone to blame.

Just wow.

  • Edwina

    Another CNN idiot. Surprised they didn’t blame Bush.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    So, Donna Brazile is finally admitting unions are like vultures?

    • GaryTheBrave

      Vultures eat animals after they’re dead. Unions are more like predators, killing animals to eat them. No, that’s still not correct.

      Unions are like a virus that feeds on its living host until it dies. Kinda like in The Matrix.

        brilliant.
        (though I would say parasite, not virus. like a tapeworm. or those fish that eat you from the inside out.)

        • Jack Deth

          You both have major pieces of the jigsaw puzzle.

          Unions see the companies they ‘work’ for as Cash Cows once they have they have acquired Collective Bargaining.

          After that. All bets are off.

        • SNAPTIE ® #GreatAgitatorObama.

          Unions are a giant parasite – that finally killed the Hostess..

        • GaryTheBrave

          Yes, parasite. The only ones I could think of were virus and bacteria. The senility is kicking in early.

        Vultures actually perform a valuable service in nature by getting rid of rotting carcasses.

        Unions today perform no useful service whatsoever. Instead of killing like a predator, they kill like a pus-filled, gangrenous wound that eventually poisons the blood and delivers a slow, painful death and leaves the carcass to move on to fresh victims.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Unions would be poachers. Kill the animals, and only take the best parts for themselves. Leave the meat to rot.

      Donna Brazile, a typical New Orleans black: white-hating racist Marxist. Yeah, Obama could be from New Orleans.

  • dennylee60

    At least they are not blaming Bush.

    • TwitWit

      yet..

  • Purple State

    Please correct this story’s headline. None of the tweeters used as “evidence” blamed Romney for the Hostess sinking. They blamed so-called “vulture capitalists.” (Whether that’s a grounded claim is another story.) But the headline is inaccurate.

    • TwitWit

      please correct your brain.. the sense has been washed out .

      • Purple State

        Thank you for your sophisticated and on-point response.

        • TwitWit

          you’re welcome.

    • J. Cox

      The headline is 100% accurate..unlike your reading skills.Please re-read DB’s tweet..the one that mentions Romney by name.But please..keep yelling squirrrrrrreeeelllllll!!!,see you in 4 years in the giant bread lines.

      • Purple State

        Here’s her tweet: “It was Romney Vulture Capitalist Style Management that Killed Hostess, Not Unions”

        Please note the word “style.” She is comparing Hostess management to tactics similar to Romney’s, but she is not actually saying Romney is at fault. Headline needs to be corrected. Very misleading.

        • TwitWit

          why bring Romney into it in the first place? you all keep playing the semantics game and expect us to fold? heh.. no.

          • Purple State

            Noting purposeful inaccuracies isn’t “the semantics game.” Criticize people on the left all you want — just do it for things they actually said.

          • TwitWit

            the headline is fair. your interpretation is purposefully inaccurate.

          • Purple State

            How can it be fair if it’s wrong? No one listed above wrote “Mitt Romney killed Twinkies.” No one listed above even said he was involved at all actually.

          • TwitWit

            it is not wrong and no one said they did. you can’t see the irony of your complaint? come on now..

          • Purple State

            You think when Twitchy writes, “Liberal Logic: Mitt Romney Killed Twinkies, Not Unions” that they aren’t positing that liberals are saying Mitt Romney killed Twinkies instead of unions?

          • TwitWit

            i don’t think, i know . Read what is written. after all that’s your reasoning, no? the tweeters above didn’t blame Romney, they just blame the Romney-like. twitchy doesn’t say those tweeters blamed Romney, twitchy just points out liberal logic.
            games are games.. we can all play.

          • Purple State

            I am reading what’s written. And you’ve actually just proved my point: “the tweeters above didn’t blame Romney, they just blame the Romney-like.”

            Which is why the headline is inaccurate and should be changed. Thank you!

          • TwitWit

            you’re being hardheaded on purpose now.. the headline is not wrong if you apply the same standard that you apply to the tweets- tweets not blaming Romney directly, but using his name as a trigger. the HL doesn’t say that the following tweets show Romney being blamed and not the unions.. the HL simply suggests liberal logic.

          • Purple State

            Now we’re getting somewhere! The “liberal logic” being suggested in the headline is based off a purposeful misinterpretation of the tweets. My “standard” is to the read the words as they are literally written, not to stretch them beyond their intended meaning to characterize liberals in a desired way. But just to read them verbatim.

          • TwitWit

            the “ROMNEY like” suggestions found in the tweets are purposeful misinterpretations of the cause of Hostess’ closing. how do you not see that? are you so biased, that you’re willing to repeatedly claim the HL is ‘wrong’ but the tweets are not? have you no ounce of fairness ?

          • Purple State

            I am reading what’s written. And you’ve actually just proved my point: “the tweeters above didn’t blame Romney, they just blame the Romney-like.”

            Uh….. hyperbole? Like, when you got into fights with your siblings, provided you have any, and one of you shouted to the other in a moment of rage, ‘I’m gonna kill you’… From what you’re saying, you’d take that seriously… and not the hyperbole with which it was meant…. Typical.

            It’s not wrong… all of those tweets are based off of Richard Trumka’s summation of Hostess’ demise.

            Right. And none of the others blame Romney either.

          • TwitWit

            right and the HeadLine doesn’t say the following tweets are of liberals blaming Romney instead of unions for Hostess’ closing.

      Now?
      This is what makes you bring out your blue pencil of language correction?

      I hope you keep hold of that pencil when examining leftist propaganda, but I suspect that it conveniently gets misplaced at those times.

      Double standards upon double standards… no wonder the idiot factor was exponential. Time to dig out, America. I don’t want to be forced to be a phoenix rising from ashes.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      You must not have clicked any of the links in those tweets? How is the headline inaccurate? Richard Trumka = Liberal. His logic, is that Bain-style economics killed Hostess. So how is the headline inaccurate, again? I mean, it does start of with ‘Liberal Logic’…. which is the basis for this thread..

    Two weeks ago I would have said few people would believe this garbage. Now we know that 51% of Americans probably do believe Donna.

    • bananafanafo

      Don’t believe that percentage 4 a minute. Our elections R not the people/citizens voting!

  • digitalPimple

    I used to follow Donna Brazile until I read some of her tweets. She is so nutty almost insane. unreal.

  • jfcarr

    The irony is that a big Obama SuperPac and DNC contributor, Tim Collins, the CEO of Ripplewood Holdings,was one of the major Wall Street investors in Hostess. The other was GE Capital, also full of Obama and Democrat Congressional campaign contributors.

    I guess as long as you’re giving $200k to Priorities USA, what you do to the “little people” is fine.

  • scalzo

    What a bunch of morons. So the next four years is Romney’s fault? They will never throw the blame where it really needs to go to the socialist in chief .

  • Peyton

    If it wasn’t for venture capitalist, Hostess was done in 2009.

    Those 18,500 people walked out of the Hostess factories of their own volition due to their overbearing union. If not for a union, those people wouldn’t be unemployed now. Unions are to blame, period. Oh and stupid people. Not Romney. Wow, Liberals ARE truly the lemming of the Human race.

  • Dex

    12 unions 1 company.

  • friendly_passer_by

    Bill O’Reilly blamed the liberal “nanny state” for the closing. Rush Limbaugh blamed Michelle Obama.

    Pensions and pay problems, bankruptcy, CEO pay hikes / bonuses, and consumers who were not buying a product appear to be the real reason for their woes.
