Mitt has caused enough damage to America with his losing the election. I would rather he go on an extended vacation to one of the many islands he owns. Maybe he can start counting his dollars one by one. That should keep him busy for years to come. We seriously need to take Mitt Romney our of our vocabulary and completely stop talking about him on Free Republic. Since when do we waste our time talking about a liberal????

Democrat run private equity helped wreck it and Republican run private equity may bring it back.
My guess is only the brand names will survive, being produced in facilities that already make similar products.

All you have to do is build a better Twinky and the masses will beat a path to your door. It's the American way.

The monkeys at the local zoo could have saved Hostess, if the first step had been to dismiss the union.

The union was bent on suicide. Let it lie in peace until resurrected in the Kingdom of Right-To-Work.

bring back Ho Hos, Sno-Balls and Wonder Bread
I figure the last time I ate one of those things was about the time the Carpenters ruled the pop charts, "Patton" and "MASH" ruled at the box office, Iran was our ally, Taipei held China's seat in the UN, and SALT I was being negotiated.

What would Mitt do differently than the current VC owners of Hostess, i.e. saddle them with crushing debt, extract millions in fees, and squeeze the employees?

Mitt should help raise $$$ for Hostess Brands - or at least some of it.

Once Hostess sheds the unions, it would take an idiot to lose money selling twinkies and bread.
