Where’s Mr. Civility now?

Here was ‘Mr. Civility’ just over a month ago:

And here he is taking a shot at Scott Walker on Monday while speaking to the nation’s governors:

Where’s ‘Mr. Civility’ now? Where was he when FOX News reporter Mike Tobin was hit by 'peaceful demonstrators' during a live broadcast from Wisconsin, while chants of “FOX News lies” were attempting to drown him out?

What did he have to say when a rabid union thug at the Moveon.org union solidarity protest in Chicago spewed hateful violent rhetoric against the GOP and “Teabaggers”?

Not a peep from Obama; not a peep from any Democrat. And a couple of things to note.  First, you’ve NEVER seen or heard this kind of behavior at a tea party rally!  Despite what the liberal media reports, they've failed at every request to produce any supporting evidence.  Secondly, to put things in crystal clear perspective, these protests over union bargaining privileges effect a whopping 7% of America's workforce...so shouldn't we look at this as 'evening out the playing field'?  Or are we just to accept that 7% of the workforce holds a monopoly over the rest by means of the taxpayers' money?

The dirty little secret is that Obama has never worn the genuine mantle of civility, nor has his party. That title would be more appropriately fitting of WI Gov. Scott Walker, with a 'civil' response to Obama’s cheap shot earlier in the day…

“I'm sure the President knows that most federal employees do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits while our plan allows it for base pay. And I'm sure the President knows that the average federal worker pays twice as much for health insurance as what we are asking for in Wisconsin. At least I would hope he knows these facts.

Furthermore, I’m sure the President knows that we have repeatedly praised the more than 300,000 government workers who come to work every day in Wisconsin.

I’m sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn’t acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another.”

You’ve got him pegged, Governor. Obama speaks of ‘civility’, yet agitates with the best of them.  The man and his party are 'bought and paid for' by and for a unionized utopia that has run its course!
