The Deafening Silence

I remember -- it wasn't all that long ago -- when the likes of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell were screaming about Obama creating high gas prices that could be cured by cutting taxes and approving immediately the Keystone Pipeline.

And let us not forget Newt and his campaign photo ops:

BUT WAIT!  Did I really just pay $3.03 per gallon?  Could the price of gas really be plummeting?  Without the pipeline???

In fact, Reuters just predicted lower prices into 2013.

So apparently that means that, if Obama was responsible for the high price of gas, it must be time for him to take a bow.

Yet, not only have I, not surprisingly, heard nothing from the Republican herd, I have heard nothing from the Obama camp.  This would be the time for a few well-placed wisecracks about the president being responsible for the price of gas...

...wouldn't it?
