Forget the Presidency. His brother f*cked that one up. Better yet, Teddy would've made a good Olympic Swimmer. Remember Chappaquiddick?
That's why he drank like a fish and screwed everything in sight.
It's a family thing, you know.
Those Kennedys are very good at bending the government laws for their benefit but those laws of physics catch up to them all the time.

Trees, bullets, bridges, cars, water, etc.

They cannot be bent or broken as easy and are much less forgiving.

JOHN, JOHN, JOHN, YOUR NAMESAKE WAS A GENIUS, YOU ADVOCATE LOWER REGULATIONS ON PIZZA SALESMEN. THERE'S A DIFFERENCE HERE, JOHN. YOU ARE NOT A GENIUS, NOR WOULD YOUR PALS THANK YOU FOR DESTROYING THE OIL INDUSTRY WHICH A STATIC ELECTRICITY MOTOR WOULD SURELY DO. YOU SEE, JOHN, THE REAL JOHN GALT GAVE SOMETHING OF REAL VALUE TO HIS FELLOW HUMANS - ALL OF THEM. YOU PROPOSE GIVING THEM A HEART ATTACK. IT'S NOT THE SAME THING, JOHN.

As for me, we grow & can my on vegetables, shop at a local fruit market & have my own bees. We buy organic when possible. No processed foods.
Same here. We've assured our food safety. You already know the government can't do it. Why bother with the FDA? A behemoth of 'regulations' routinely skirted, leaving us listening to the giant sucking sound of billions of dollars wasted.

Its called a veto. Look it up.
He can tell Congress that there are some actions that he will veto.
It is well within his powers to do so.
Congress can pass whatever it chooses and let the President decide whether to veto. Threats by the President to veto specific legislation make the Congress useless if obeyed.

You make a very good point.
Perhaps the unions should purchase the business and show that they are more competent than management.

Does not make Congress useless at all. It makes the more efficient.

Why waste months passing a bill that will just be vetoed.

Veto threats are just that, threats.

A President is certain within his rights to warn Congress what might get the veto.

Blame the marketplace that won't allow unlimited pricing for bread and snack foods.

Each industry has efficient and inefficient producers. Hostess is an inefficient producer that must either reduce costs, add value to allow higher prices for its products, or cease to exist.

Or the taxpayers could provide a bailout.

You right whiners keep telling us the only way US companies can compete is to pay the minimum wage.

"OMG OMG those bakers are making $17.00/Hr. The must accept lower pay!!!!! Meanwhile the CEO & Top management get a huge raise.

These are people that are working. If they weren't working thy would be on Medicaid.

You psycho right wingers constantly bitch that Obama is not taking ENOUGH leadership and then in the next breath you right wing idiots whine that he should just stand back and WATCH congress. Unbelievable!!!
Conservatives believe in Constitutional government and division of powers. Leadership is working quietly with Congress instead of making non-negotiable demands.

If Obama wants higher tax rates, what is he willing to trade in return?
