It's hard not to laugh listening to Republicans attack President Obama over high gas prices. As we all know, the Republican Party has long been in the pocket of the oil and gas industry, which it allowed to reap obscene profits at the expense of the American consumer during the eight-year reign of Bush/Cheney.
Where were our Republican whiners then, when gas prices reached $5 a gallon in some states?
Perhaps it's time for President Obama to revisit the windfall profit tax on the oil and gas industry that he shelved in a show of bipartisanship when he took office four years ago. I suspect the mere threat of his doing so would send gas prices tumbling.
