Even Dick Cheney has backed off the erroneous myth that China is drilling for oil for Cuba offshore near Florida. Not the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. More on the myth here. The D-G floated the story again today in an editorial in support of more offshore drilling.
John McCain has just added his voice to letting oil exploration proceed off our coasts, just as Brazil is doing in the South Atlantic or, for that matter, the Chinese are doing for their Cuban proxies just off Florida.
