In letters addressed to presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Ralph Nader provides incisive critiques of more than a decade of American policy decision and indecision. With his signature dry wit, Nader holds these presidents to their campaign promises. He also boldly points to the ignoble and sometimes heinous decisions made in pursuit of party platforms and misguided policies. Covering a range of topics—the Iraq War, torture, the Crimean annexation, the minimum wage, worker’s health legislation, and corporatism, to name a few—these letters were ignored by the president who received them. Here they are reproduced to reclaim the spirit of a true and healthy democracy.
