    Perhaps you could tell us what the likelyhood of two students getting an interview with a Congressman actually is.

    Bad news: They spend most of their time with lobbyists.

    Not a victim at all.

    But I like the way he handled the little ****s and I hope he doesn't catch too much flack over it.

    That way the video is shot (close ups) and edited (re-showing certain parts over and over) I'm sure this won't go away fast.

    Legitimate news organizations won't show this without knowing the boys names and school. And hopefully asking for a copy of the full video.

    What does the kid have in his hand?

    Are you kidding? A well-written letter outlining the specifics of the interview and asking for no more than 5 minutes... Very likely.

    Bad news: They spend most of their time with lobbyists.
    Not all of them.

    He should have walked away. It could have been that Acorn Pimp guy and he still should have walked away. He didn't need to grab the kid.

    Unless you are saying that you are glad the congressman looked like an ass...

    Not justified... but mitigates.
    I disagree. Now if they had actually tried to teabag the Congressman, then the amount of force he used would have been justified.

    Had they tried to teabag him and he used lethal force, I would say that it wasn't necessarily justified, but certainly mitigated.

    Again, since we can't see the full video... we can only go on what was on the edited youtube video...

    I've looked at this thing a few times, there's a huge chunk missing...

    He overreacted, but I'm glad he did it in a way that no one got hurt. (except their pride)

    And why did they blur out their faces? Don't these respectful little boys want us to know who they are?
    What if they weren't from any school what if they were bloggers what if they were just some kids with a camera? Is there something wrong with citizen journalism? This sorry excuse for a congressman works for the people not the other way around he works for them and don't you ****ing forget it.

    I guess you've never seen his movies. There's a few street interviews. But I've never seen him 'bust' in someone's office.

    Take a lesson from Moore, if you're going to spin, stick close to the truth...

    Go back to his first movie. He was ejected from an office building in it. He really did come off looking like a dick at that point.
