Obama's Nationalization like Putins' Russia

WASHINGTON (AP) - The No. 2 Republican in the House on Thursday compared President Barack Obama's plans for the auto industry to the policies of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, saying the White House has stripped credit holders of rights and given them to Democratic allies.

"They said, 'Set aside the rule of law, let's strip secured creditors, bondholders, of their rights. Take them away outside of the bankruptcy process and give them to the political cronies and the auto workers' unions," Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., said in an interview with The Associated Press.

"It's almost like looking at Putin's Russia," added Canton, the GOP's House whip. "You want to reward your political friends at the expense of the certainty of law?"

(much of the article is poltiical posturing - 'the dems are unraveling' - etc)

Well .. is he right? Are Obama's Nationalizations like Russia?

Nationalizaton of Industries.
Nationalization of Healthcare.
Power payoffs to poltiical allies.
Political power grab - moving the Census to the White House.
'Brownshirts' - ACORN, forced 'volunteering' of youth (he said it's coming).

I'm thinking it's more like Atlas Shrugged.
This is going just like Orsen Wells - 'Animal Farm'.
