Except, of course, they didn't really. Well, what's one lie more or less to this bunch?
Vice President Dick Cheney's office has
acknowledged that he erred when telling an audience this week that
China is drilling off the coast of Cuba.
Citing columnist George Will,
Cheney on Wednesday told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that "oil is being drilled
right now 60 miles off the coast of Florida. We're not doing it. The Chinese are
in cooperation with the Cuban government."
''Even the communists have
figured out that a good answer to high prices is more supply,'' he added. "Yet
Congress has said . . . 'no' to drilling off Florida.''
