When gas prices were up, the Republicans were shouting their opposition from the rooftops. Now, that President Obama lowers gas prices, they are nowhere to be found because God forbid a Republican be happy about something good Obama has done.
Just last month, Mitt Romney said, "he gets full credit or blame for what's happened to this economy and what's happened to gasoline prices under his watch and what's happened to our schools and what's happened to our military forces -- all these things are his responsibility while he's president."
Mitt is not wrong about those things being his responsibility, but all of these things were in sad shape before Obama even took a step into the Oval Office. Let's remember that the schools are horrible largely due No Child Left Behind and that was President Bush's baby. The gas prices were high during the Bush Administration as well.
Now, gas prices are down about $0.12 per gallon and Romney and the other Republicans have not a word to say. They are now down because Obama demanded a crackdown on oil speculation.
Obama lowers gas prices and not only are Republicans completely silent, but there is not much being reported in the media either. President Obama could give world peace, eliminate poverty and hand every American their dream home and people would still complain and refuse to give this man credit for the good he has done. Come on now Republicans, it is not considered being liberal to give credit where credit is due. That is called human decency.
