Just saw Maxine Waters trying to grill the oil company execs and end up falling flat on her well made-up face. She threatened to nationalize the oil industry, and admitted that she was a liberal and a socialist (shocking!) Shep Smith cut to the Fox reporter and asked how the remark about nationalization went with the execs. The reporter said that the chairman of Shell responded by comparing Maxine to Hugo Chavez. I'm loving it.
I think it would be of great interest to have a beauty contest between Max ine Waters and Hu go Chavez. Except that I doubt there could be a winner.
Maybe they are responsible for bringing crack into the inner cities to, Maxine. Better check out that angle...
Made up face, for sure. But not well made up. She's (almost) in Helen Thomas' league as far as fright faces are concerned.
ROFL! Nationalize the oil industry? Yeah, that’ll fix it, Maxine!
When I saw the title my first thought was Hugo and Maxine but she’s too stupid for even Hugo to pay any attention to.
So we have the real DNC agenda. Socialize Oil and Health. Why are we not surprised!!!!! PING!!!
The socialists are increasingly emboldened.
Or she would have if she could have remembered the word.
Did she actually say she was a socialist? Was that an exact quote?
Is there a video or transcript of that anywhere? If anyone has this please let me know.
That was hilarious! Did you notice the man and woman to the left of her? They were ready to lose it.
Did Maxine actually use the word socialist in open session, or is that your take on it? I just want to know if they’ve decided they can admit to it publicly now.
Throw pock face Manuel Noriega and you would have a real contest.
Next they’ll have the young “pioneers” marching out into the fields to plant corn to be made into ethanol.
Also, did the Shell exec compare her to Chavez in those words publicly?
If the sweep predicted by the DNC takes place, Big Oil, Health Care (including pharmaceuticals), Bankrupt Airlines, Railroads and Energy will be in the forefront of the nationalizations after the economy collapses. First will come the increase in taxes, including wide ranging "excess profits taxes".
She wants to nationlize Shell? Is this even possible?
I saw the same report and immediately came to FR to see if anyone else was as amazed as I was. I just stood staring at the screen with my mouth open for several minutes. Talk about showing your true colors in High Definition.
Oh, yeah. She said, "Well this liberal will be all about socializing, uh, uh, ....(she can't think of the word 'nationalize') taking over, and the government running all of your companies!"
