    Bob Etheridge Apologizes for "Poor Response" to Sidewalk Cameramen

    Translation: I'm sorry I got caught.

    If any of us did what Bob did, we would be in jail for battery.

    And if a Tea Party candidate did it, it would be the #1 lead story on all the networks. Heck, they would probably interrupt regular coverage to make sure the entire nation got to view this breaking news story.

    Doesn't seem like a big deal to me. A couple of guys were out to get a reaction from a politician so they could use it for their agenda and they got what they wanted.

    Bob did not assault the student. He's not guilty of that, what he is guilty of is battery. Assault is the threat of physical violence, battery is that violence realized.

    I wasn't there and I don't know the circumstances 100% so I don't know if I would or not, but I do think that the people taking the video intended for this to happen and they got their wish.

    He definitely battered the student, after swatting him and poking his chest a gazillion times, he got the kid in a headlock and turned him around saying WHO ARE YOU. And all this on a public sidewalk lol. Godforbid anyone stop their congressman on a public sidewalk and ask him a question he might not like, in this case "do you support the Obama agenda?".

    I disagree...... I think they expected some verbal reaction for sure. It would have been fun, but harmless, to watch the guy get enraged, mutter swear words and otherwise act like a retard on camera. I think that they were going for that.

    I think they were completely surprised when he laid his hands on them. So much so that it's explains why they didn't answer his deranged "who are you" questioning . I think they were in total shock at this clown's lack of composure.

    It's WAY OUT OF LINE. Democrat or Republican doesn't matter. There are bounds, and this nutjob went way beyond them.

    Okay, I'll bite.

    Clearly it was an overreaction. And... uh, that's all I've got.

    Meanwhile, paranoid racist Steve King (R-Iowa) says that Obama Has 'Default Mechanism' That 'Favors The Black Person.'

    I guess we know what we've known for a while now: there are a lot of crazies in the US Congress. Maybe someone peed in Etheridge's Cheerios this morning :confused:

    This has nothing to do with party affiliation. Bad behavior by individual people isn't relegated to party D, or party R. This guy is being an ahole by his own doing. The more people try to label every individual action, as being the fault of dems and or repubs, the further into the abyss that is Coke and Pepsi, will we all fall. We need some real change people. All establishment losers have to go.



    Yeah that indeed.

    Meh.

    I wasn't deflecting anything. I merely pointed out that Etheridge was in the wrong, while also pointing out that another congressman said something worthy of an equal if not greater amount of "outrage," but since said outrage is selective for you, I'm not at all surprised to hear your deafening silence (to to speak).
