McCain Would Relax Drilling Ban - WSJ.comElite Democrats feel that high energy prices and high gasoline taxes are a way of engaging the common folk in their peculiar brand of "conservation." Socialist countries like Brazil have offshore deposits of oil and have no problem with offshore drilling. The Chinese have drilling operations off the Cuban coast on behalf of their Cuban hosts. Gee, isn't Cuba very close to Florida? Yet, the U.S. ban on offshore drilling remains in place. I guess the only kind of drilling Chris Dodd favors is drilling into special cheap loans at Countrywide Bank.
