It's Time For Ralph Nader To Be Put Out To Pasture With The Rocking Chair And A Cup Of Hot With Lemon

There is a need for a third party, but there is no longer a need for Ralph Nader. The only time he has gathered attention for his failed presidential bid was by attacking Barack Obama in the most vile ways. Nader is senile and past his political worth. You don't have to belive me...just watch!

Ralph Nader is a bitter old fool.
What a pathetic little man, his rapidly fading career just went "poof"!

And I have to give props to Shepard Smith...he really drilled him onthe Uncle Tom remark, he didn't let that go.
I usually find him to be a pompous dork, but I like him just a little bit more now.

Ralph Nader had a fine career for many years speaking truth to power. Every society needs people who will stand up to authority. However, that is not leadership- that is social criticism. leadership is being able to assess a situation- point the direction forward- plan the battle-rally the troops-lead the charge and secure the victory. President-elect Obama was a leader, ( one of the first in a generation or two.)

Point taken on social criticism vs. leadership!

However, I disagree with praise for the FoxNews tool here. 1) Nader's choice of words was poor, but he did not call Obama a UT--he said acting like one is one of Obama's choices; 2) the points Nader makes are good ones; 3) the FoxNews tool completely overlooks the points Nader is making, including those about corporations not unlike FoxNews, by focusing on Nader's racist choice of words. As if FoxNews didn't participate in some of the most veiled-but-vile racism against Obama during the campaign!

I think Fox's insincere fingerpointing at Nader is only a way of putting on a mask of antiracism, to cover up their own racism. They're clever like a Fox...

Macon D -

I hear your point and it has an awful lot of truth, but I have a MAJOR problem with ANY white man attempting to label ANY black man as an Uncle Tom. Nader didn't have to say that mess at all to make his point. His over the top rhetoric destroyed the point he was trying to make and rightfully so.
