Not too long ago, the president was calling for less name calling and more dialogue between the two parties.
Today, we saw a fine example of this new "civility". The demonstrators in Wisconsin have been comparing their Governor Walker to Mubarak and Hitler. His crime? He wants the teachers' union to contribute to their pension and health insurance. How awful. We see everyday what a wonderful job these teachers do.
The president, instead of chastising the demonstrators for their comments, came out on the side of the unions/demonstrators. Where's the civility there? I guess the president believes in that old saying, "Don't do as I do, do as I say". What a hypocrite.
The democrats in the legislature, instead of doing their job and debating the issue, took the coward's way and left town. They went to a motel in Rockford, Illinois.
