So economic protectionism is good, and we should always drill everywhere, all the time, is the conservative position?
For crying out loud - at this very moment the Chinese communists are drilling for oil and gas not far off the Florida coast -with the help of Cuba.
In point of fact there are many millions of barrels of proven reserves in the waters surrounding Florida (and Calif) - all that would help a great deal if they were actually produced...
The objections coming out of Florida from guys like Mel is that is might spoil the tourist views - or put a little oil on the beaches and thus it cannot be allowed to happen
