Democrats Call for Nationalizing the Oil Industry

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.

  1. No one's going to ask.
  2. 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.
