Maxine Waters threatens to nationalize U.S. oil industries
Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters said the following to the president of Shell Oil during a House hearing:
“And guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal would be all about socializing — er, uh. [Pauses for several moments] …. would be about … [pause] … basically … taking over, and the government running all of your companies.”
“As soon as the word “socialization” exits her lips, she knows she made a big blunder, not the least of which is that the actual term is “nationalization”. Waters just declared a socialist policy of total confiscation in the House hearing room, and she looks for an exit strategy, finally winding up with the slightly more ambiguous idea of Washington “running” the oil companies. Two people in the background try mightily to stifle laughter at Waters’ predicament.” (Note by Ed Morrissey from http://hotair.com/archives/2008/05/23/waters-slip-obamas-quip-and-the-upcoming-socialist-trip/)
I guess her leftist-totalitarian slip was showing once again. These Democrat politicians are not democrats, or liberals, or progressives, they are communists pure and simple.
