President Obama gave his State of the Union speech to Congress last night. For an analysis, go here ("FACT CHECK: Obama and his imbalanced ledger")

This was one of the "What did he just Say Moments"!
OBAMA: Vowed to veto any bills sent to him that include "earmarks," pet spending provisions pushed by individual lawmakers. "Both parties in Congress should know this: If a bill comes to my desk with earmarks inside, I will veto it."

Wasn't this one of the first Campaign Promises he broke?

We are told daily (sometimes hourly) by the Left that ObamaCare is the only thing which will prevent the Bad Insurance Companies from unfairly deciding who is eligible for Health Insurance. Obama and the Left Demonized the Insurance Companies. They claimed that ObamaCare would reduce the deficit through smoke and mirrors.

Yet certain companies and labor unions are now getting waivers from the provisions of this wonderful entitlement - ObamaCare. Three SEIU Locals--Including Chicago Chapter--Waived From Obamacare Requirement If ObamaCare is so great, why does the SEIU and other groups need a waiver? Appears to me that Do as I say - Not do as I do is in full force for those politically connected - especially if they are contributors to the Left.

From that article we learn some relevant facts.
So far, the Obama administration has issued waivers to 222 entities, including businesses, unions and charitable organizations. Of that total, 45 were labor organizations.

A total of 1,507,418 enrollees are now included in the waivers. More than one-third -- 512,315 – of the enrollees affected were insured by union health plans.
I wonder if this fact influenced the Department of Health and Human Services decision to grant the waivers?
The SEIU's Committee on Political Education made $27,829,845.91 in independent expenditures on Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008.

UPDATE Jan 26, 2011: The official Department of Health and Human Services list of wavers granted from their own Government Website. It's over 700!

The events in Phoenix are tragic. Six dead, 13 wounded at the hands of an apparently deranged individual. The apparent target was a Congresswoman from the 8th district of Arizona. Her name is Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ). Today she is in a Phoenix Hospital in critical condition from a gunshot wound to the left side of her head at the hands of a possibly schizophrenic individual.

This individual is described as having connections to groups which exultant the likes of Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin. These groups are also anti-Semitic, and possibly call for the violent overthrow of our Government.

Yet the facts show the "Daily Kos, a very much to the left blog has scrubbed a post to a diary by BlueBoy titled "My CongressWOMAN voted against Nancy Pelosi! And is now DEAD to me!". The Congresswoman BlueBoy refered to is Gabrielle Gilfords. A classmate described him as "left wing" and a "pot head" plain and simple this is the Hypocrisy of the Left.

Yet the "Daily Kos as well as many on the left continue to blame the right, and in particular "The Tea Baggers" as the cause of the actions of the gunman. At this point, it is counter-productive, hypocrisy and wrong to blame these criminal acts on the right or the "Tea Baggers".

UPDATE Dem Congressman who called for GOP Gov. to be put against a wall and shot now pleads for civility
