• Barack Obama Is a War Criminal, Says Ralph Nader

    You may have noticed an odd feeling this election cycle. It's kind of hard to put your finger on, but it's kind of like an absence of a beige-ish grayness. That's the sensation of not having Ralph Nader running for office for the first time since forever.

    Though, he's still doing his best be a part of the debate. At least, to the degree to which he ever was

    On issues related to the military and foreign policy, Obama’s worse than Bush, "in the sense that he’s more aggressive, more illegal worldwide," Nader told Politico, going so far as to call Obama a "war criminal."…

    "He's gone beyond George W. Bush in drones, for example. He thinks the world is his plate, that national sovereignties mean nothing, drones can go anywhere. They can kill anybody that he suspects and every Tuesday he makes the call on who lives and who dies, supposed suspects in places like Yemen and Pakistan and Afghanistan, and that is a war crime and he ought to be held to account."…

    "I don’t know whether George W. Bush ever read the Constitution," said Nader. "This man taught the Constitution, and this is what we got."

    Wow! A war criminal! That's some rough talk from Ralph Nader. I mean, I think Noam Chomsky has called every U.S. president since WWII a war criminal, but that's Noam Chomsky. He calls the waitress a war criminal if his soup comes out cold.

    It's hard to imagine anything Ralph Nader could call somebody that's worse than "war crminal"…

    "[Mitt Romney is] basically a corporation running for president masquerading as a human being."

    From the perspective of a career consumer advocate, that's probably worse.

    Though, I think it's almost word-for-word Charles Koch's recommendation for Romney.
