Cuba gets oil, we get another hosing from the Democrats

Cuba Discovers Oil While Democrats Block Drilling:

Apparently, Cuba does not have all the environmentalist wackos to prevent it from drilling. Consequently, Cuba just found 20 billion barrels of oil off its shores in the Gulf of Mexico, and now plans to be one of the top 20 exporting countries in the world.

This story alone should disqualify the Democrats from being reelected. Had there not been a moratorium on drilling, that oil would have been ours. What is wrong with this Country? Cuba is literally drilling where we are not allowed to drill! Had we discovered 20 billion barrels overnight, the price of gasoline would drop to close to $2.00 per gallon, and OPEC would have less leverage because we would control our own supply.

...it puts Cuba's reserves on par with those of the US and into the world's top 20. Drilling is expected to start next year by Cuba's state oil company Cubapetroleo, or Cupet.

I'm not holding my breath waiting for all the professional ecoweenies in the Democrat party to chain themselves to the drilling platforms to prevent it. First home mortgages, now oil: is there anything the Donks can't screw up?
