So what exactly happened to the "new tone" of civility declared by President Obama and the Democrats after the Arizona shooting?
Well in Wisconsin, Unions traded in their "new tone" of civility for picket signs with gun targets and pictures of Hitler, accompanied by vitriolic threats and hate filled speech directed at Governor Scott Walker and the Republican Party.
And based on President Obama's non-condemnation of Union actions and behavior in Wisconsin, he has obviously granted Unions an exemption from his "new tone" mandate.
President Obama clearly understands that Unions have a long standing tradition of being uncompromising, unapologetic and uncivil when it comes to doing whatever it takes to get their way.
We should expect nothing less from a President who respects and honors such rich American traditions. Afterall, he has had infinitely more contact with union bosses than his own cabinet members over the past two years.
