Ralph Nader’s letter to Obama.

If Eric Alterman sees this, he’ll spill coffee all over his Yes We Can mousepad.

Ralph says:

It may be that you believe that trading off $120 billion in retained income for the Rich is worth persuading the Republicans to support $18 billion for an extension of unemployment benefits to people out of work. With your Party controlling both the White House and the Congress until January 1, 2011, that is a remarkable definition of political, moral and strategic weakness that will signal even greater capitulations to the Republicans during the next two years.

Remember McGregor Burns’ distinction between a transformational leader and a transactional leader.

    If Obama’s smart, he’ll listen.

  2. Excellent. What really got me was watching (last night) a few of Obama’s blurbs about how his compromise will “grow the economy.” Do you think he really believes that? Or is he delusional? Personally, I think he’s lying. How disappointing.
