Nader: Obama ‘Corporatist Under Liberal Sheen’

Five-time third-party presidential candidate Ralph Nader pulled no punches this morning, blasting both President Obama and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

Nader characterized President Obama as a “corporatist under a liberal sheen” and criticized his coziness with Wall Street and big corporations. Of the former secretary of state, he asked, “What’s the difference between Generalissima Hillary and McCain?”

The former Green Party candidate didn’t have kind words for Republicans, either, arguing that today’s conservatives have entered a “crazed dimension” far afield from those who backed Reagan, Eisenhower, and Taft.

But Nader sees much in common between the two parties. “Generally speaking, the White House and the Congress are not that different,” he concluded.
