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?

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.
If Congress passes a bipartisan bill to avoid the "fiscal cliff", Obama will not veto the bill regardless of its provisions.

These are people that are working. If they weren't working thy would be on Medicaid.
Then the unions should purchase the company, eliminate management, and reap huge profits.

Just as a matter of curiosity, what skills do these bakery workers possess that someone off the street could not learn in a few days?

And they are not working...they are on strike, which is why the company shut down.

By the way, the Teamsters agreed to the pay cuts.

Hostess, Bakers Union to hold talks on reason for strike

....The U.S. trustee, a Justice Department official responsible for protecting creditors, today asked Drain to take control of the liquidation away from the company. U.S. Trustee Tracy Hope Davis asked the judge to convert the case to a Chapter 7 from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, based partly on the company’s intent to pay bonuses, and appoint a trustee to supervise the wind-down.

Hostess officials “have not demonstrated that the insider bonuses are permissible,” Davis wrote in a court filing. They also “improperly seek to exculpate and indemnify their management from past and future liabilities” and want to “cherry-pick which administrative claims get paid.”

In seeking court permission for its demise, Hostess said it wants to pay as much as $1.75 million in incentive bonuses to 19 senior managers during the liquidation.

Pallywood€ is a phenomenon that Israel’s supporters often use to describe the media manipulation that Palestinians resort to in an effort to turn people against the Jewish state. Individuals fake injuries and “act” as though they are hurt when they really are not — all in an attempt create a perception of Israeli aggression and mistreatment.

Take, for instance, video footage of a man who was allegedly injured and being carried by fellow Palestinians during Israeli airstrikes over the last two days. While the BBC showed video of him in apparent despair, he appears just moments later walking on his own and looking healthier-than-ever.

THE BUREAUCRATIZATION OF EVERYTHING

The squeeze is on with the federal government aiming to increase taxes on the most productive elements of society while simultaneously imposing economic burdens and limitations on free choice through thousands of federal rules and a new emphasis on enforcement against the non-compliant, including asset forfeitures, seizure actions, and civil and criminal prosecutions. While taxes take the wealth that would otherwise be saved, invested, or spent; regulations limit freedom of choice, increasing the cost of production, goods, and services, diminishing the profitability of every enterprise, and limiting consumer choice in the market. Regulations also impose significant barriers to market entry and force many firms out of existence, depleting wealth, eliminating opportunity, and adding to unemployment...

Topix 'Judge It' Wuss 32 up, 12 down
One who cannot stand up to a debate against an intellectually superior person when posting on the Topix website ( www.topix.com ) and anonymously uses the "Judge It" buttons instead. A chronic case would involve cyberstalking this person and judging every comment with the same icons regardless of the content being judged.
It became obviously to me after seeing the consistent "Judge Icons" being attached to my comments that I had attracted the attention of another loser Topix 'Judge It' Wuss.

Internet trolls who browse Topix discussion board and use the "Judge It" icons instead of replying to the thread with their actual opinion.
Blogger 1: Hey, did you see that topix wuss who gave everyone a disagree on the Bush topic yesterday but never actually replied to any of the comments directly?
Blogger 2: Yeah. Topix should really get rid of those stupid icons and force people to grow a pair and explain why they disagree or dislike a blogger.
Blogger 1: Yeah, and they should make registration required too, that would stop a lot of this bullshit from happening in the first place!

And Romney had every right if he was president to veto the PP, the PBS, and the DREAM act bill.
Not really, Mustard Jackal, but your PM's probably didn't tell you. "That challenge was dismissed by the Supreme Court on a technicality, but the following attempt to knock down the line-item veto succeeded: On June 25, 1998, the Supreme Court deemed that "there is no provision in the Constitution that authorizes the president to enact, to amend or to repeal statutes."

The form of the Dream Act was an executive order and even Mr. Mittler would have to veto and entire budget to kill Big Bird and pluck Planned Parenthood. What does that mean to you, anyway?

If Romney had picked anyone not in Congress, he could have run against DC. Instead, he had to waste time separating himself from his VP pick.
"My opinions are no whee near factual" - They are opinions,dipstick.
Oh, BTW, shove your racial slurs, pathetic racist f*ck.
Ryan is light years ahead of the Boy Messiah in understanding budgets. It shows.

Opinions are generally derived from facts. Your opinions are derived from a psychotic's fantasies.
