Do you remember the big national group that
went all out to opposed the Clinton Administration
changes strengthen ozone and particulate matter air
quality standards? They had bigtime operatives
like C. Boyden Gray? It was the "Citizens for
a Sound Economy"
They are back and they
are now promoting Ralph Nader......

Breaking Events in the 2004 Progressive Campaign to Beat Bush
Michigan GOP Openly Launches Nader Petition Drive
Bush Forces Now Driving Nader Ballot Efforts in At Least Five Battleground
States: Oregon, Wisconsin, Florida, Pennsylvania & Michigan
The American Right has now openly launched a full-scale campaign in support
of getting Nader on battleground state ballots. While in 2000 such support
was covert or provided so late that disclosure was only required after the
election, in 2004 there is now an open alliance: It's the GOP, Bush, Dick
Armey... & Ralph Nader.
The "support" from right-wing Bush groups now seems to dwarf Nader's own
campaign organization. In Pennsylvania alone, and fresh from its Nader work
in Oregon, Dick Armey's right-wing "think-tank" Citizens for a Sound
Economy (CSE) boasts an organization of 10,000 volunteers to get Nader on
the ballot. In Michigan, meanwhile, the state GOP has announced the
Party will actively circulate petitions for Nader's ballot campaign.
Such massive reactionary forces backing Nader's campaign calls into
question whether Nader needs any campaign allies or organization at all --
it hardly matters if the Green Party refuses Nader ballot access, or if the
Reform Party grants it. Nader's campaign is now the golden child of
America's most powerful political machine -- the Corporate and Religious Right.
And there's no question about why this is taking place. Bush forces are
quite explicit. As CSE put it in the phone script for their Oregon campaign
"…Ralph Nader is undoubtedly going to pull some very crucial votes from
John Kerry, and that could mean the difference in a razor-thin presidential
election. Can we count on you to come out on Saturday night and sign the
petition to nominate Ralph Nader?"
Perhaps Nader has been correct all along: he's been saying he'd get lots of
conservative support. But please, Mr. Nader, let's not confuse the Pro-Bush
Right putting you on the ballot with them actually voting for you. They
know how much harm your campaign can do to progressive causes. We only wish
you could face the same reality.
