Earlier this week, Vice-President Biden talks about strangling Republicans.
Today, President Obama states that if the Republicans win Congress it would "hand-to-hand combat here on Capitol Hill."
Now I know that Joe Biden wouldn't strangle a Republican any more than President Obama would punch out John Boehner. But I also know that if a Republican politician spoke about strangling to Democrats or that a Democratic Congress would result in hand-to-hand combat liberal commentators would accuse Republican politicians of fomenting extremism and inciting violence. They would bemoan the lack of civility and call upon the GOP to temper its language.
