He could have laughed and said, "boys... nice suits, you look like you want to work in government one day." He could have winked and said, "Man, FOXNEWS is hiring really young reporters these days."

    Is it now forbidden to ask representatives questions, and record them for the record?
    When they're spending billions like it's spare change, I think it's a fair question. Do you support the Obama Administration and their agenda? Many Americans want to know.

    Yep he could have and probably should have done something like that.

    It's certainly a pretty devastating blow to his career, along with other Democrats.

    I agree he should be charged with assault. I also agree that he should lose his seat immediately. He doesn't have the judgment or mental ability to be making decisions for our nation. Sadly, he's probably not the only one. We just don't always get the chance to do something about them.

    He could have just looked it up on a government database. :

    Pretty blatant arrogance/abuse material there in the video. Will be curious to see if Jon Stewart elects to go after this one....??

    Um... Yeah. Duh? Who the hell are the tools bothering the congressman? Do they live in his district?

    And what kind of stupid ****ing question is that? "Supporting the Obama agenda." Friggin' idiots. Go back to school and learning something.

    The story by Breitbart.com contributor Mike Flynn
    Just another far-rightie partisan hit hack job sack of **** story...

    Bottom line: You want to see the congressman, make a ****ing appointment, assholes.
