There’s no bigger hemorrhoid on the ass of liberals than Ralph Nader, and he’s flaring up again like a kilo of lithium in a bathtub.
Consumer advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader panned President Obama’s call to raise the minimum wage as “too little, too late.”
The president in his Tuesday State of the Union address pressed economic policies he said would aid the middle class, including a call to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.50 an hour to $9.
Nader, in an interview with The Hill on Wednesday, criticized Obama for failing to address the issue in his first term and said the president had already abandoned middle-class families.
He noted that Obama, after his 2008 presidential victory, had called for raising the minimum wage to $9.50 by 2011.
“He isn’t even at the level of his promise in 2008 which was $9.50 by 2011. So now he wants $9 by 2015, who’s he kidding? He doesn’t care about low-income workers. He never talks about them,” Nader said to The Hill.
“He always talks about the middle class. … He turned his back on low-income workers in this country and there are tens of millions of them because he doesn’t want to upset the Walmarts and the [National Federation of Independent Business],” Nader continued. “He has no skin in the game and his associates have no skin in the game. They’re making big money.”
You know what, on the subject of the guy who basically put Dubya in the White House in 2000 in arguably the worst move for America’s middle class in decades? Well I don’t particularly care what his views on the minimum wage are. You know who never talks about low-income workers? The guy who pretends that he didn’t enable the worst cabal ever to take a crap in the White House bathrooms, thus screwing us over mightily, leading directly to the financial meltdown caused by the banks. Wasn’t Obama who lost Florida in 2000 to Bush and the Hanging Chads. Wasn’t Obama who “abandoned the middle-class” by putting Cheney’s war machine in full bloom. Wasn’t Obama who gave us a President that ignored Bin Laden Determined To Strike The US.
That was you, ya dig?
You remember Bush, right? A Republican? You know, the word that you fail to mention in your little diatribe there on President Obama? The guys who really have been actively doing everything evil you attribute to the guy in the White House now? Remember them? You enabled them, man. You enabled the hell out of them, and you have never taken responsibility for it. Even if you did, you’ve got balls the size of Easter Island moai statues for opening your mouth now, Wreck-It Ralph.
So have a seat on your butt donut, King of the ‘Roids. Ain’t nobody got time for this.
