Ralph Nader comments hit the mark.

Original story at Ralph Nader Partial Transcript from Rocky Mountain News

It was sad watching MSNBC trash Ralph Nader and his comments about Barack Obama's candidacy. MSNBC and its "pundits" called Ralph Nader "out of touch", "craving attention", "comments from an old guy" "out of it", and that the comments were racist.

What Ralph Nader said, in my opinion, was that Barack Obama has been bought by George Soros and Company. Barack will avoid confrontation with anybody that supports or is supported by Soros. Of course MSNBC will be all over Nader and trash him since they are part of the Soros led media takeover.

Rather than being a very popular, maverick candidate with a shining star future in the democratic party whose grass roots candidacy barely lost to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama chose to be owned by George Soros in exchange for the over the top help it gave him against Hillary Clinton. Ralph Nader saw exactly what has happened and how it has compromised Barack Obama and hit a bullseye with his comments.

I believe that the level of media collusion backing George Soros and subsequently supporting each other already exists. Ralph Nader's comments may have been attention getting, but they were right on the mark, Barack Obama is beholden to too many other interests.

George Soros, Huffington Post, MSNBC, MoveOn, Media Matters, Newsweek, and CNN have played favorites politically while claiming to be news oriented non biased media. This is the kind of fraud that needs to be investigated by the FBI.

Here is the transcript of what Nader said from the Rocky Mountain News.


Q: "Do you see Barack Obama as qualitatively different than Al Gore or any other Democrats. He talks about taking on lobbyists, not taking money directly from lobbyists ... People portray him as being different. Do you see him as being any better than Al Gore or any of the other Democrats that you've opposed over the years?"

Nader: "No. I mean, he's deceiving people. He takes, he takes ... In this very building he would take money from corporate lawyers who are not registered lobbyists but whose desks are across the aisle from corporate lawyers who are registered lobbyists in the same law firm. That has been reported more than once in the mainstream press ... Six out of seven industries, as of a month ago, have given more money to Obama than they have to McCain, only the transportation industry is more equal opportunity corruption.

"Look at the health care industry. It has poured money into his campaign. The securities industry, the defense industry. No.

"There's only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He's half African-American. 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."

"I think his main problem is that he censors himself. He knows exactly who has power, who has too much, who has too little, what needs to be done right down to the community level. But he has bought the advice that if you want to win the election, you better take it easy on the corporate abuses and do X, Y, Z. When I hear that I say, 'Oh, I see. So he's doing all this to win the election, and then he'll be different.

"Well let's see if it worked. Did it work for Mondale? Did it work for Dukakis? Did it work for Clinton? Yes, but only because of Perot? Did it work for Gore? Did it work for Kerry ... ?"

Q: "Do you think he's trying to, what was your term, 'talk white?'"

NADER: "Of course. I mean, first of all, the number one thing that a black American politician aspiring to the presidency should be is to candidly describe the plight of the poor, especially in the inner cities and the rural areas, and have a very detailed platform about how the poor is going to be defended by the law, is going to be protected by the law, and is going to be liberated by the law. Haven't heard a thing.

"I mean, the amount of economic exploitation in the ghettos is shocking. You'd think he'd propose a task force to at least study it. I mean, these people are eroded every day. The kids, bodies are asbestos and lead, municipal services discriminate against them because it's the poor area, including fire and police protection and building code enforcement. And then the lenders, the loan sharks get at them, and the dirty food ends up in the ghettos, like the contaminated meat. It's a dumping ground for shoddy merchandise. You don't see many credit unions there. You don't see many libraries there. You don't see many health clinics there. This is, we're talking 40-50 million Americans who are predominantly African-Americans and Latinos. Anybody see that kind of campaigning? Have you seen him campaign in real poor areas of the city very frequently? No, he doesn't campaign there."

Q: "What do you think the purpose of that is?"

NADER: "He wants to show that he is not a threatening, a political threatening, another politically-threatening African-American politician.

"He wants to appeal to white guilt. You appeal to white guilt not by coming on as a black is beautiful, black is powerful. Basically he's coming on as someone who is not going to threaten the white power structure, whether it's corporate or whether it's simply oligarchic. And they love it. Whites just eat it up."
