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.

I would have told him, "your fucking boss", now get your hands off of me before I have you arrested.

I AGREE completely -- so would have I

I would have broken his arm/face in about 3 0r 4 places, then I would have said

Re: Congressman assaults student on sidewalk * VIDEO *
Ol' Bob Etheridge, a US Congressman since 1997, should just RESIGN now ... OR he can fight it and make it even MORE painful for his party.

This video will be played over and over from now until election day -- not only in the 2nd Congressional district of North Carolina, but at the national level to get the power-hungry Libs out of office. Count on it.

And I have a feeling that the Conservative running against him, Renee Ellmers, will be taking his place come November ... [link to www.reneeforcongress.com]

Geez-o-pete!

What is this congressman's name?
What he did is considered assault.

Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-NC)
 Quoting: Resister


He is a Dixiecrat, not a Democrat!


This, from his campaign site, says it all:

Bob and Faye remain active in their church and both teach Sunday School. For his diligent and decades-long work for the Boy Scouts, Etheridge has received the Silver Beaver Award; the highest award a Scout leader can receive.

Re: Congressman assaults student on sidewalk * VIDEO *
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 *
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.

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.

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.
 Quoting: Smilin' Irish Eyes


I stand by my decision not to rush to judgment. Believe me I want to support those kids, and even excoriate the Congressman as many have done here. The key here is to ask a larger picture of the truth, not to make excerpts necessarily determine our reality. It is the story sometimes of the blind men asked about the elephant. One holding the tail suggests it is a rope. Another with the ear says it is a big leaf, and so forth.

None of us really knows this Congressman, only his moment of bad behavior. In court maybe he is some percentage on the side of self defense with his grabbing and asking questions compared with the set and setting of the students. A jury might decide that. I admit to ignorance, and wanting to ask more questions. Many of you have already made up your minds.
"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

One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."

"Hello Congressman, do you fully support the Obama agenda?"

No introduction, no asking a question "may we talk to you, we are from X University learning journalism?"

He is from the South, and they are practically asking him to jump off a cliff with their question out of nowhere.

So what does anyone expect? In Washington DC people play rotten politics, so he says "who are you," quite firmly. It could be someone sent to entrap him, who knows. Maybe he is having a bad day. But these kids were abrupt and rude asking him out of the blue in this context "will you jump off a cliff for me?"
