    Congressman Assaults Student Asking if he supported the Obama Administration Agenda

    Breitbart.tv

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v60oN...layer_embedded

    I guess questions are not allowed of our representatives.
    Eerie SOB continually asking "who are you"?
    It makes you think he'd have some hatchetmen visit the kid.

    I say this guy's career is over.
    Good too.

    Don't know about anyone else, but I wanted to reach into the screen, grab the representative by the scruff of the neck and put my fist through his face.

    Then contrast it to this:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52EFs...eature=related

    "He says get involved in civic... something that's happening in your community..."

    These kids did and asked a simple question... and well... Boom goes the dynamite!

    Yep, the guy is a creep. He should have kept walking. He didn't need to put his hands on that boy.

    It amazes me how those in office forget that they are the employees of the people. I am pretty sure that if employees in any businesses were to put their hands on their boss they would be fired.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This was an assault on the college kid.

    But hey who cares, it is just another politician and they frequently get away with breaking almost every law in the Country.

    Etheridge caught in on-camera confrontation

    Etheridge's reaction is to demand to know who the photographers are. He then gets physical. He grabs the camera from one man and then takes him by the wrist. In the video, the photographer's faces are blurred and their identities aren't given. They never identify themselves to the congressman other than to say they're students working on a project.

    When they continue to refuse to identify themselves, Etheridge grabs one around the neck and then the shoulders refusing to let him go. The man eventually slips Etheridge's grasp and the video ends.

    The video is titled with the headline "Congressman Goes Beserk" and it was picked up by the Drudge Report website with the title: "SHOCK VIDEO: Congressman Assaults Student on Washington Sidewalk..."

    ABC11 has left messages with Etheridge's office to get his side of the story about what happened. We're waiting to hear back.

    Dude needs to be charged with assault.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    He'll probably only face the Congress itself, since they have the power to discipline their own.

    I'd be pissed too if someone accused me of supporting the Obama agenda.

    Kidding aside, who does this guy think he is? He believes he has the "right" to know the student's name, school, etc.?
