Having been roundly criticized for the sharp rise in gas prices earlier this spring, President Barack Obama would seem to be in line for a bit of credit for the drop in gas prices, which declined 6 percent this month alone.
But the same Republicans who were quick to pinpoint his energy policies as problematic have been slow -- if not entirely unwilling -- to change their tune.
Instead, with the nation's average gas price having fallen from $4 a gallon in February to $3.38 a gallon today, Republicans have turned silent on an issue they once predicted would be a key line of attack against Obama in the 2012 presidential election.
GOP lawmakers have modified their talking points as follows: The president continues to shoulder responsibility for what Americans pay at the pump even if the prices seem to be heading south of $3 a gallon.
right wing they just can't stop stumbling guess it's because their demonize the Pres. idea is being complicated for them with both feet and all 10 toe's stuck in their collective mouth's.
after the horse is dead it takes a sadistic SOB to continue wailing, kinda like Palin and that fish she beat the scales off.
