Re: Congressman assaults student on sidewalk * VIDEO *
Watch the video, these kids were abrupt and rude. You do not see the face of them, it is blotted out. You see a caption, not a continuous picture. That may or may not matter, but everyone has rights here, including this Congressman.

How do you know what he is going though on that day? Maybe some lobby is heavily pressuring him to vote against his conscience, for that matter for something Obama is doing.

Grabbing the kid was at least equal or greater than the rudeness of his question. But to make so many judgments about him, walk a mile in his shoes someday.

I do not trust the comments here that only too typically demonize a Congressman who is at some point getting little or no respect. "Do you fully support the Obama agenda?" Half the ordinary people here might get pissed off at that kind of question when they are just walking down the street.

"With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things." William Wordsworth

And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Lincoln's economic advisor Henry C. Carey explained the universal issue in his 1851 Harmony of Interests:

"Two systems are before the world.... One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."

Nice to see the 'leaders' are flipping out....

I think they both handled the situation wrong. The students should have identified themselves right away, HOWEVER, the congressman had NO business laying a hand on that man. They think they are God's and we should fear them. I think I might have been tempted to knock him on his ass...........
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 918166



I agree that both sides handled this improperly. The students really should have identified themselves. And the congressman? Holy shit!

But what I strongly suspect is that someone has been harrassing the congressman already. Someone is giving the old guy some serious grief for him to react as he did. I wonder what the hell is going on and who's putting the screws to him?

I might be stupid, but asking people "do you fully support the Obama agenda?"

Those are fighting words, maybe insulting. You people do not get it, those are provoking questions in a government that still does not get rid of torture, and that still hands out trillions to bankers. People are balancing what they say everyday in Washington. This incident is a bunch of emotional hogwash on all sides. Just blame the Congressman, ask him if he has stopped beating his wife while you are at it.

Re: Congressman assaults student on sidewalk * VIDEO *
These sort of videos are questionable to say the least. Remember the "hero" who took down Acorn with his undercover sting video. It was all over fox and it resulted in the complete collapse of Acorn and cost many people their jobs.

Well a couple of months after all is said and done a DA who was putting together a case to try each of the Acorn employees released the unedited videos. What did we find out, well first the video was cut to eliminate critical clips that showed that the employees were not compliant with the prostitution. For example one man was shown in the video offering his help in smuggling child prostitutes across the Mexican boarder. He asked questions like how many and where were they going to be smuggled from. What the movie maker failed to mention was right after that conversation the employee called his brother who was a police officer in the city and reported the incident and the officer turned it over to the division that handles those cases.

The point is don't hang this congressmen out to dry without first waiting to hear all the facts. It is very possible that what is not being shown are actions by the "students" that might have not been as nice as they imply. Trust me based on the opening question these "students" had all intention of using this video to attack the congressman. Hell if I walked into a tea party rally and started asking hostile questions I guarantee I would not be walking out with all my teeth.

 Quoting: SpaceCommand

You are either wacked out on crack, a shill, or a statist who believes the public should never ask even simple questions.

In the video we saw a young person dressed in a suit greet a congressman politely with "good morning congressman", call him sir repeatedly and ask one single question. "Do you fully support the Obama agenda?". Nothing about that is rude. It was way more respect than Rep Etheridge apparantly deserves.

I want to see that soon to be ex-CONgressman perp-walked by the capitol police for assault on tonight's news.

Honestly SpaceCommand that is why the Congressman should have said, "no comment" or just not responded in any way.

But for you to think that the simple statement of "do you fully support the Obama agenda" are fighting words or an insult is really quite laughable.

If you are for something stand your ground, if you are against something have the fortitude to stand behind your actions/decisions.

I agree with the other poster that something did spook him for a politician to react that way on camera and to such an innocuous question.
