Don't get me started on Ralph

Eight years ago Ralph Nader lost whatever moral authority he might have had when he turned his back on his own ethics to try and convince voters there was no difference between Al Gore and George W. Bush.

Nader: Obama trying to 'talk white'

"There's only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He's half African-American," Nader said. "Whether that will make any difference, I don't know. I haven't heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What's keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white? He doesn't want to appear like Jesse Jackson? We'll see all that play out in the next few months and if he gets elected afterwards."
We all know his comment in 2000 was a lie. Only a complete idiot would listen to anything Nader has to say today.

Nader crawls out from under his rock every four years and tries to get attention. I have to wonder what he does between elections, it certainly isn't anything worth noting, that's for sure. His day in the sun is long past, and that's probably killing him.

This drive me mad!

What kills me about Nader and his supporters is this... If you are indeed serious about a viable third party and to have Nader be the person you want for president, great.

But start acting on it the day AFTER the general election and work it hard until the next general election 4 years later.

And it might not hurt to have some connection to local candidates, congressional rep etc along the way of those 4 years.

However, this constant showing up 3 years and 6 months after the last presidential election is counterproductive to one and all.

It is idiocy and shows Naders egotism out of control.

Nader was an idiot decades before 2000. In the 1960s he got lucky trashing the Corvair - after that I would assume he had a progressive staff that did good things that he took credit for - and then he started mainlining politics.

And now Mr. Yuk strikes again with his nonsense about Obama.
