Ralph Nader accepts millions from Bush
by Naderwatch Sunday, Nov. 09, 2003 at 6:39 PM

Nader accepted a large sum of money from Bush to run in 2000, it seems he has done it for again this coming election

On the verge of the 2004 election the Bush camp is raising a little extra for their pet project: the Nader campaign. Having benefited greatly from their earlier investment in 2000 the Republicans are back with their secret weapon: divide and conquer.

The Bush campaign in 2000 diverted a couple of million dollars of their own money to make sure Nader ads ran on TV in states that could have gone Democrat and thusly ensured a Republican victory.

With Nader's recent announcement that he'll be running again in 2004 the Bush camp has doubled their efforts to deliver as much Nader airtime as possible to the public. Nader well aware where his money is coming from shrugs at the possibility of another Republican victory.

Nader's political godfather George W. Bush is looking forward to a new landslide victory in 2004 thanks to his "Green" crony.

Nader's real bos$
by Jean-Claude Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2003 at 12:34 PM

Nader did not "accept" any money from Bush or Republicans; some Republicans spent it on their own. The amount was $100,000, not "millions". And, it was the Republican Leadership Committee, not Bush, who did the spending.

In other words, Nader works for the Republican Leadership Committee, not Bush... neat!

Doesn't it seem odd to you guys that a man that has devoted over 40 years of his life to the same stance the green party takes would commit this kind of betrayal? I have met Ralph Nader, personally he seems extremely sincere in all of his beliefs and ideals. I'm also pulling my affiliation with the green party based on the insame assumptions by the Louisiana Green Party.

LA Green Party??
by Les evenchick Sunday, Jan. 18, 2004 at 11:54 AM

What does the LouisianaGreen Party have to do with the attacks on Nader?

Did I miss something?

I personally do not support Nader but he in no way works for Bush or the Republican national committee.

Of course, no one can prevent support from enemies who have their own interests.

In my opinion a Nader campaign has a good chance of taking away more Republican votes than Democrat votes if he runs again.

This is because most Dems already view Nader as a spoiler whereas many Reps are upset with Bush on the Iraq occupation and the massive new spending.

In addition many blue collar workers who have voted for Bush last time have been screwed by his new overtime pay rules.
