Maybe it's the dissapointment they felt when they found out that the budget for the Moon/Mars project would come out of their existing budgets?

Does anyone else find it a bit odd that NASA's apparent enthusiasm over the exploration of Mars has dropped to almost zero, and did so very abruptly? I remember when we first got up there, they were releasing things like a list of the songs they were playing at HQ... but now, we hear barely anything at all.
So, is it just that public interest is waning, or have they stumbled upon something that they are trying (rather heavy-handedly) to keep under wraps for the time being? And, if the latter is the case, what was it?
