    Nader Blasts Obama, McCain on Iraq, Bailout

    Perennial presidential hopeful Ralph Nader, who plans a rally in Amherst today, yesterday insisted he is the only candidate “who recognizes people’s necessities” and blasted the Democratic and GOP positions on the war and the economy.

    Nader maintained his long-shot campaign persona as a populist gadfly, criticizing Friday’s financial bailout package, which was backed by Barack Obama and John McCain, calling it a bag of “freebies and goodies garnished with window dressing.”

    The longtime consumer activist attacked both parties for their support of the package, charging it contains no criminal prosecution of the “corporate crooks who brought us this financial meltdown.”

    “The government contributed to the panic,” said Nader in a phone interview with the Herald yesterday. “What a bailout should do is to create a wall to protect prudent investors and institutions.”

    This is Nader’s third consecutive run for president. He received only about .3 percent of the national vote in 2004, but in 2000, he garnered almost 3 percent and was accused of costing Al Gore crucial votes.
