obama didn't bail out Twinkies?? Why not?


Recommended Posts

...because the private sector will take care of this! Hope osama obama READS this post! Maybe Romney was right?!


Good news Twinkies fans, your beloved snack is due back on shelves on July 15

The announcement was made by Daren Metropoulos, principal of Metropoulos & Co., one of the two companies that bought the rights to Twinkies and other snack brands from the bankrupt Hostess Brands earlier this year.

The new Twinkies box will look very similar to the old one, with the addition of the line "The sweetest comeback in the history of ever." The price will stay the same as last fall when Hostess shut down - $3.99 for a box of 10. Other products will also come back with the same pricing.


"America wanted Hostess back -- they wanted the original," said Metropoulos.

The new company will sell all of the Hostess and Dolly Madison branded snack products, including CupCakes, Donettes, Zingers, Ho Hos, Ding Dongs, fruit pies and mini muffins. Some products, such as Sno Balls, will take a little longer to return to shelves, but they should be available within the next few months.
Other Hostess brands, including Wonder Bread and Drake's snack cakes, have been sold to other firms. Details of their return have yet to be announced.

A) No need to bail out consumer goods, especially low-cost shit like Twinkies.

B) By 2013, lots of private sector capital about, capable of doing the bailout. This was not the case in 2008-2009.

C) Twinkies employ a few hundred and are not a significant element of the economy, unlike the auto industry.

 

Have a nice day.

...maybe you must READ the link I posted, libturd...

 

YOUR unions CAUSED this to happen! I'll help you out!

 

 

 

Wonder Bread, Twinkies and other Hostess products have not been produced since November, when Hostess Brands Inc. filed with the bankruptcy court to liquidate its 82-year old business following a crippling strike by the Bakery Workers union.

 

But while that company is out of business, and most of its 18,500 employees have lost their jobs, a bankruptcy court has been overseeing an auction of its various brands as part of the liquidation process.

Surrender by change-the-subject noted.

 

Hint - if you want to piss and moan about the bailout, or lack thereof, the reasons for the need of a bailout are already irrelevant.

 

Further hint for yet another COn unable to handle the concept of timelines - whatever the cause of Twinkie's )Hostess') fail, and we have only your bullshit channeled opinion on that, it happened BEFORE the subject you chose to rant about.

If you listen to the management at Hostess, this is the truth

If you listen to the Baker's union, the problem went much deeper than pension debt.

 

In the real world, it takes two to tango.

 

 

Steven Mufson of the Washington Post summarized the company's fatal problems as "a combination of pension burdens, labor rules, crippling debt from financial engineers and management’s failure to freshen up a stale product line and keep up with consumers’ changing tastes."

 

But of course, you don't live in the real world.

The closest economic adviser, whose advice he followed in contrast to more liberal advisers, was Timothy Geithner.

 

Meanwhile, here's a list of mostly business people who both contributed to the Obama 2008 campaign and were part of his transition team: http://www.opensecrets.org/obama/transition.php

 

Banner day: you learned something.
