Did Hillary actually say that? Yes, I heard it. And I think she means it.
Not only is it creepy - it is even creepier that the MSN is not reporting it. This is Chavez-type stuff. If she truly believes that she can "take" those profits, whose profits can she not "take"?
And, by the way - is she forgetting who gets those profits? Regular Americans, in their IRAs. And is she forgetting who earns them? Lots of people who work far harder than she does, and are far smarter too. Exxon is one of the best-run businesses in the world, dealing with the most volatile of markets, and contending with endless governmental constrictions of what they want to do (eg, building refineries, or obtaining product). Those restrictions, of course, drive the price of oil upwards.
Via Hot Air. My views have changed since college, but I'm not so certain about her. If she can say things like this, one must wonder. More worrisome, I think, is that she can say things like that and not be crucified by the press and the voters.
