Kinda hard to say if she was kidding, being sarcastic, being serious, or threatening to stab the oil companies in the back.

First, some background. The video is from early 2008, back when oil prices were rising sky high. So basically this is old stuff, nothing new.

Second, congress was trying to address high oil prices with the oil companies. Basically oil companies thought demand was through the roof (we later found out that demand was actually falling during this time, not rising), and came to Washington begging for more leases for drilling. Waters wanted a guarantee from oil companies that if they allowed more drilling, then oil companies would lower prices. If they didn't (basically if they broke their promise), then she would be in favor of nationalizing those companies.

Truth be told, it was all for nothing. The oil companies weren't in control of pricing to begin with, so they didn't have the power to promise lower prices if drilling was opened up. Second, what Waters said could be taken as serious, as a threat, or as sarcasm. However, since nothing happened (no nationalization of oil companies occurred here in the U.S. since that video was originally aired), it's all Washington smoke and mirrors anyway. Plus, it didn't seem that democrats or other "liberals" in Washington were very supportive of her statements anyway.

Personally, I'm not losing any sleep over it because it's a dead issue, and been dead for a while now.

OH I think she was all for it. It was a threat she would try to follow through on. But like Curtis said, this is old old stuff.

Re: Maxine Waters Tongue slip. lol

I have read alot of these posts and have tried to stay silent. But no more. These ####### liberals ( and I can see your point of view.....kind of) I am all for taking care of those that can't take care of themselves. I am not however for taking care of those that WONT take care of themselves.

And to Mr Pocket. So what if it was 2 years ago? You think their agenda will change over a year or so? Can you be any dumber? If someone said it in the past they believe it now. What got me was how long it took her to recover from her "mispeak" ( aka spoke what I really feel)

Reminds me of an old saying " Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it"

That being said. Anyone remember Adolf Hitler and his Nationalists? He didnt get voted in by 3 people. Guess we can count Pocket and Gayandy in that list of " OMG I had no idea this would happen" crowd just like when my grandfather came back from Europe. He was at the concentration camps and saw the death and destruction those " One for all and all for one people" ( as long as it's the ARYAN race ) caused. Funny thing is.....Hitler's ARYAN race was comprised of blue eyed, blond hair people of which he was neither. Anyone else see the stupidity in this thinking?

Last thing is this. How in the hell can you argue for Nationalizing ANY company in the USA? This country was built on free enterprise. I.E that's how we became as great as we are. Like it or leave it. We did not get here by accident. No we do not want to be like Europe in any way shape or form. If we did we would all still be there. Every rule/law we have here will not make everyone happy. Again, never has, never will. But still this is THE greatest country on earth bar none.

Don't believe me? Take your silly ass overseas and ask around. Even the countries that bad mouth us. Ask their citizens and ( those that aren't afraid of getting shot for voicing their opinions ) will tell you they would LOVE to come here.

Those countries don't hate us, they want to BE us. Human nature. Everyone wants to be the top dog. Leaving Saudi Arabia.........once the plane hit international airspace they were drinking liqour, reading playboys and all were headed to Las Vegas.

I have tried my dammdest to listen to you guys rationalizations about all of this and have come to one conclusion. You have no clue.
And I hope to GOD I am around when you realize what an imbecile you are.

I agree.

The Government needs to keep thier hands out of the free market system. No more bailouts, no more handouts, etc... When a company goes bankrupt, because they are too stupid to manage thier money and resources and make a profit, they deserve to have to shut down.

And as far as this woman, I may could say it was a joke, but she was soo caught up in herself that she had to stop and think about what she was going to say. I don't really see that as "playing around".

Very true. GM, Fanny Mae, Freddy Mac, Chrysler, the banks, and the health care system will have to do for now.

Only a liberal/socialist posing as a "centrist" would defend Maxine Waters stating she would "Sociali.......take over the oil industry."

TRULY DISGUSTING...........!!!
