Well, it's all over the blogosphere today. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) called for nationalizing the oil industry yesterday. Video at Hot Air.
I'm not as surprised as I should be, especially since Maxine Waters (D-CA) has already threatened this, but I do hope someone out there has the courage to ask Barack Obama (D-IL) what he thinks of this?
If he comes out unequivocally opposed, I guess I'll have to take points away from him on the Marx-o-meter. I really don't see that happening though, for two reasons.
- No one's going to ask.
- If someone does, he'll hem and haw and say not really answer the question, but will continue to blame the oil companies for everything.
