You are trying to divert from the fact that through Elliott's thuggish corporate raiding and extortion the Romneys and others profiteered million$ at the expense of the auto industry, its workers and the taxpayers.
THAT is how it works.
The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. is independent from the Treasury. According to Rep. David Camp "Thus far, and on the basis of documents produced both by Treasury and third parties, my investigation has found that the PBGC advocated that GM take over both the Delphi hourly and salaried pension plans," Ultimately, it was GM that put money into top up and union pensions.
Whos money did GM put into that? Didn't GM go bankrupt? GM didn't have any money to put into anything.
And, why did the Delphi pension plan get thrown under the bus?

It was less than 1 trillion, had it been over a trillion we may have seen a better recovery.

You all were awfully silent when Bush pissed away over 5 trillion, and what was that spent on again? Talk about pissing money away.

You say pissed away, I say stopped a full blown depression dead in it's tracks.

“Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.” But Romney has done a good job of concealing, until now, the fact that he and his wife, Ann, personally gained at least $15.3 million from the bailout—and a few of Romney’s most important Wall Street donors made more than $4 billion. Their gains, and the Romneys’, were astronomical—more than 3,000 percent on their investment.

It all starts with Delphi Automotive, a former General Motors subsidiary whose auto parts remain essential to GM’s production lines. No bailout of GM—or Chrysler, for that matter—could have been successful without saving Delphi. So, in addition to making massive loans to automakers in 2009, the federal government sent, directly or indirectly, more than $12.9 billion to Delphi—and to the hedge funds that had gained control over it.

One of the hedge funds profiting from that bailout—&#8232;$1.28 billion so far—is Elliott Management, directed by &#8232;Paul Singer. According to The Wall Street Journal, Singer has given more to support GOP candidates—$2.3 million—than anyone else on Wall Street this election season. His personal giving is matched by that of his colleagues at Elliott; collectively, they have donated $3.4 million to help elect Republicans this season, while giving only $1,650 to Democrats. And Singer is influential with the GOP presidential candidate; he’s not only an informal adviser but, according to the Journal, his support was critical in helping push Representative Paul Ryan onto the ticket."

And you idiots bitch about paying for free lunches for poor kids?

Looks like Obama's disastrous foreign policy decisions in Libya are coming to light.
Stevens informed the White House that an Al Qaeda attack was inevitable.
The White House steers Stevens to Benghazi and cuts his security.
Al Qaeda attempts to kidnap Stevens and inadvertently kills him while the government watches real-time a well-coordinated terrorist attack and does nothing to help Stevens avoid being kidnapped.
"Not enough information" after a plethora of warnings from Stevens about an Al Qaeda attack being inevitable, and watching in real-time the attack which lasted over 6 hours.
Help is available and ready to go to Steven's aid.
Obama's empty chair watches the Al Qaeda plan to kidnap Stevens unfold for 6 hours. The empty chair doesn't send help to Stevens.
Stevens dies of smoke inhalation after Al Qaeda tries to smoke him out of his last refuge.
The Al Qaeda intent was to kidnap Stevens, not to kill him. If they intended to kill him, they would have just blown the door away and if Stevens was still alive, either lit him up with AKs or made a video of Arabs cutting his head off.
After Al Qaeda kidnapped Stevens, then Obama could have pretended to be "presidential" and trade the first terrorist that bombed the WTC to the Muslim Brotherhood in exchange for a US ambassador being released from Al Qaeda.
How many October Surprises is this now that blew up in Obama's face? I count three.
You'd think the Three Stooges are running our government after this repeated idiocy.

Until that day.......

There are abuses across the board, why go after just the unemployment cheaters? Go after them all, from corporations to welfare cheaters.

If Mitt Romney Loses, Blame All the Time the GOP Wasted This Cycle

The conspiracy theories, the obviously unqualified primary candidates, the Clint Eastwood speech -- it all adds up to a lot of opportunities lost.

Birtherism wasn't the only time-suck of a theory.

Besides, it’s not as if Powell’s endorsement comes as a surprise. On foreign policy alone, Romney has gone out of his way to make himself unacceptable to someone like Powell, and there are enough other disagreements on domestic policy that it would have always been a stretch for him to justify backing Romney. If he were going to endorse Romney, he presumably would have done so on foreign policy and national security grounds, and Romney’s campaign this year made it impossible for him to do that. Voters that would take Powell’s criticism of Romney’s foreign policy seriously have already reached a judgment about Romney’s readiness to be president, and I suspect the vast majority of them already reached the same conclusion Powell did.

Sheesh, Romney surges in the polls and the stock market takes a dump. Fortunately he is slipping back and the market is starting to right itself again.
Very foretelling of the future if Romney were to win.
Clint Eastwood was right. When Barack Obama's leadership has been needed, he has been absent.

~While at the University of Chicago, according to Senior Lecturer Richard Epstein, "Obama did the minimal amount of work to get through. No one remembers him. He was not a participant in luncheons or workshops. He was here and gone."

~As a U.S. senator for less than one term, according to Gov Track.us, "From Jan 2005 to Oct 2008, Obama missed 314 of 1300 recorded or roll call votes, which is 24.0%. This is worse than the median of 2.4%."

~As President, the Government Accountability Institute points out that from January 23, 2009 until May 31, 2012, President Obama was in office for 1,225 days and only attended 536 presidential daily briefs, an anemic 43.8% attendance record.
(The Obama administration contends that holding such meetings is not important, that the president simply reads his PDB when there is no meeting.)

~According to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, President Obama has held 208 fundraisers since filing papers for re-election including 141 so far in 2012.
(For comparison's sake, President George W. Bush, who was facing a tough re-election campaign attended a total of 97 fundraisers.)
