Is This the Work of a Spoiler?
Another Presidential candidate has weighed in on how we got into the current economic mess and what he thinks of Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson's proposed solution for getting out of it. His name is Ralph Nader. Is it any surprise that he has put together a statement in clear and cogent language that exposes just how much shallow rhetoric there is in anything Barack Obama or John McCain has tried to say (let alone do) over the last two weeks? The "unreasonable man" has struck again with the conviction that comes from arguing on a turf he knows so well, the protection of ordinary consumers from abusive practices. How long will it be before we hear the first howls of "Spoiler!"?
