Be afraid. Be very afraid. Maxine Waters is not alone — not that I ever thought she was. While lambasting and demonizing oil executives in committee a few weeks back, the Democrat congresswoman from Los Angeles accidentally let slip that she wants to seize control of the oil industry.

UPDATE: Here’s the video. This one is unbelievable! Starts with the Democrat press conference and follows up with a Democrat strategist calling to seize the entire oil industry and set prices! Perhaps Obama could pick Hugo Chavez as his running mate.
