In a further sign of better international relations to come, certain House Democrats just can’t wait to join Hugo Chavez and get started nationalizing private industry.
House Democrats responded to President’s Bush’s call for Congress to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling. This was at an on-camera press conference fed back live.

“We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market.” – Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY)
“Congress should set prices.”
Patience, precious – you’ve got to get past November, first.
