23. maybe because you expect an enemy to work for your defeat

you don't expect a friend to betray you.

You know, Nader was supposed to be a guy on the side of the people, on the side of the environment.

Then he helps to elect Bush.



The whole point of blaming Nader is so that in the future, people who care about progressive causes won't cut off their nose to spite their face by voting 3rd or 4th party and helping Republicans win. You know, so instead of losing by 48.1% to 48%% to 3%, we could win 51% to 48.1%. Although we won 53% to 46% in 2008 and that did not do us much good.

But the huge loss in 2010 certainly didn't help.

And for all the complaints I have about Obama, I am quite sure that McCain with a Republican Congress would be much, much, much worse.

How about we try winning back the House instead of arguing about Nader or promoting 3rd parties here?
