Let’s nationalize "big oil"!
Posted by: McQ on Friday, May 23, 2008

That's what Rep. Maxine Waters wants to do. Of course she couldn't think of the proper term.

Watch the video.

Naturally, "Hugo" Waters would nationalize everything if she had her druthers and we could all live in a socialist paradise of her making.

This is what passes for "leadership" in Congress. Pure and untrammeled economic ignorance with power and a microphone. And the way things are shaping up, I'm of the opinion there's going to be a lot more of it in '09.

I love how the folks sitting next to her cannot contain their giggles. Maxine Waters is an idiot.

Careful what you wish for...

Putting idiots in charge of the country isn’t a path to success in my estimation.

In the Fox News edit, and presumably in the actual hearing, Waters issues her commie threat right on the heals of Hofmeister saying this:
The $5.00 will look like a very low price in the years to come if we are prohibited from finding new reserves, new opportunities to increase supplies.
Just how the heck does Miss Maxine think the "government running all of your companies" will hold prices down if supplies cannot be replenished and increased?

She responds to the man as though his acknowledgement of elementary reality shows a lapse in management ability or goodwill or something and the government’s got to sweep in and prevent the damage he wants to do.

Imbecile. She shouldn’t be trusted to open a can of Coke without supervision, much less be allowed to have anything at all to say about the provision of fuel to anyone in America.
Putting idiots in charge of the country isn’t a path to success in my estimation.
It’s a g*ddam*ed miracle this whole country isn’t just a great big gaping mass grave right now, when you look at the kinds of dipsh*ts we’re willing to take orders from.

While looking for something for another post, I did manage to come across a posting about the reduced rate of voter participation by those who are mentally diminished.

I bet they do just fine in Ms. Waters district.

Here is my challenge to African Americans. Yes I know that you will probably vote for left wing black people to represent you in your districts. But can you please stop voting for shrill, stupid, belligerent, idiots like Maxine and that crazy woman who slapped the policeman?

thank you for your time.

Does Maxine Waters actually "lead" anything?

She’s been a laughing-stock as long as I’ve ever heard of her, and it’s been years.
