Obama’s first year

It’s probably a fine opportunity to go back and listen to presidential candidate Ralph Nader’s sober analysis and foresight ahead of Obama’s babble soaked victory. From November 2008, interviewed by Paul Jay of the Real News…

“What we’re seeing is the highest level of resignation and apathy and powerlessness I’ve ever seen. We’re not talking about hoopla. We’re not talking about ‘hope’. We’re not talking about rhetoric. We’re not talking about ‘rock star Obama’. We’re talking about the question that is asked everywhere I go: ‘What is left for the American people to decide other than their own personal lives under more restrictive circumstances year after year?’ And the answer is: almost nothing.” (Interview, RealNews.com, November 4)
