Ralph Nader: These Democrats need to stop cowering

“If the Democrats in Congress were all drinking water from the same faucet, there might be a clue to their chronic fear of the craven and cruel corporatist Republicans who dominate them,” Nader began in a post on his website. “But they don’t, so we have to ask why their fear, defeatism, and cowering behavior continues in the face of the outrageous GOP actions as the November election approaches.”

“The Democrats should be landsliding the worst Republican Party in history,” the former presidential candidate added. “Instead, Democrats let Boehner and Cantor peddle their unrebutted torrents of falsehoods to the voters in their districts.”
