    ...and I'll be damned if I don't agree with him.

    I know this is old news, but I hadn't seen this until last night:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibsP6XN2dIo&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Ralph Nader asks if Barack Obama will be an Uncle Tom[/ame]

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COeqNdhuKuU&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - (Uncle Tom?) Ralph Nader is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT![/ame]

    pretty much my feeling on the subject.

    and nader's a megalomaniacal jerk who helped saddle us with GWB for eight years.

    he should have stuck to consumer activism where he did some good.

    Ralph Nader hasn't been relevant in 30 years.

    lol, I like watching Shepard when he's pissed off.:lol:

    Drops the f-bomb here talking to Napolitano and Gallagher, he almost drops it near the start talking about getting his Lawyer to do something, but he snaps at the end.:lol::oops:

    As I had predicted some time ago, the radical left would turn against Obama. Next will come the leftist media. When they start referring to him as "our first mixed race President" you will know the process is complete.

    What's wrong with being radical? How do you define radical left vs. radical right? From what do you derive your dichotomy of left wing and right wing?

    This is the problem with politics... people are stuck in the fucking fantasy world of the right vs. left, good guy vs. bad guy bullshit. Then words like radical, extremist, or fringe is used to describe people who realize that it's bullshit.

    Radical means advocating a fast and extreme departure from current policy.
    Liberal means advocating more moderate and incremental departure from current policy in a dirrection away from past policy.
    Conservative means advocating no change in current policy.
    Reactionary means advocating a return to previous policy.

    It's good to know what the terms mean before you start flinging them around - kudos.
