Bob Etheridge apologizes for reaction to students with camera

Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-N.C.) has issued an apology for his behavior on a much-circulated video in which two young people with a video camera who identify themselves as “students” elicited an angry reaction from him — including grabbing the right arm and then the full body of one student.

    When he let go of his arm and grabbed him around the neck, the kid should have given him an uppercut to the jaw and knocked him out. I think they should press charges as that congressman had no right to grab him like that for only asking a question.

    He stole the kids cell phone.

    Another one to vote out in November.

    Hey, wait a minute.

    I thought it was the retired folks in the Tea Party that were the violent ones.

    Etheridge is fortunate that student didn’t beat him senseless.

    Arrogance on parade!

    After he grabbed me around my neck and asked ” Who are you?”…I would have answered…” Your Worst Nightmare.” , and then I would have started yelling for a police officer… and had his a** arrested.

    BobF is right, the kid should have knocked his block off. But instead he gets a pass from the media.

    Douchebag of the week is right!

  7. comment number 7 by: TexasFred

    NO WHERE in this post did I say DOUCHEBAG OF THE WEEK…

    I stopped doing the Douchebag of the Week award because I asked folks to make suggestions for nominees all I got was criticism for NOT doing the one that certain people THOUGHT of, but somehow forgot to submit…

    I got totally tired of taking criticism AFTER I asked for suggestions, and got none…

    I get tired of doing a numerated list and then having someone come in and say, “You forgot this and that and the other”…

    1. North
    2. South
    3. East
    4. West

    Now, wait and see how long it takes for some numbnutz to come in and tell me I forgot N.E. and S.E. and so forth…

    I have taken a hell of an attitude lately Katie, I blog for me now, if people like it, great, if not, too damned bad…

    Sorry, I forgot. But he should be nominated for it. Or for the month.

    TF, he needs to be ARRESTED.

    He needs to be arrested NOW.

    The evidence has been seen, now, by hundreds of thousands.

    Kid should have grabbed a handful and put that POS on his knees!

  11. comment number 11 by: TexasFred

    BZ, not a doubt in my mind… I will say this, had he laid hands on ME like that, for simply asking a question, the dumb son of a bitch would be sucking dinner through a straw for the next few weeks…

  12. comment number 12 by: TexasFred

    Kate, maybe the kid was a Dem/Libber, bleeding heart and wasn’t going to go off on Etheridge for expressing himself…

    That’s all I can figure out, the kid HAD no balls and didn’t know what they were… Otherwise, that son of a bitch would be wired shut right now…

    And sure, he NEEDS to be arrested, no doubt, but he needs an ass whoopin’ too…

  13. comment number 13 by: Patrick Sperry

    What a dipshit! That fool would have tried that stunt on me or any of my children his arm would have been busted off and used as a club to trash his head in…

  14. comment number 14 by: Kate

    OMG! Fred…. ROFLMAO Almost made me wet m’britches!

  15. comment number 15 by:

    Religion of peace my ass, Oh wait he’s JUST a democrat? same shit different name! I have to say Fred that kid might have no balls but in having no balls he did just what was needed to make the problem ALL fall on the congressman! If I was from North Carolina I would be calling for resignation NOW!! What a Douchebag!

  16. comment number 16 by: Gawfer

    And Right Wing Tea-bag extremists are the violent ones…

    Yeah, right. I remember being separated by a mounted police officer after going toe to toe with a palestinian protesting Israel in January of ’09.

    I saw many opportunities for a left cross, left elbow and groin shots that would have been very difficult to pass up… all in the name of self defense.

    When he grabbed the back of the neck-a right knee to “the boys” would have made the Congressman spit up some blood! Now THAT would be a video to see :)

  18. comment number 18 by: Steve Dennis

    You may have retired the douchebag of the week award, but this man deserves to be so honored!

  19. comment number 19 by: Vigilante

    That just thoroughly pisses me off……..that it had to be some young lad that was caught off guard, instead of me. I’d have been on that scumsuckin M%#^F^*%er like a pack of wild dogs on a three legged cat. It just showed the mentality of these so called “elite” asswipes that think you and I are the “unclean” bunch. You know, the same unclean ones that pay the worthless bastards salary he doesn’t even begin to earn.
    I got news for your scummy filth ridden ass buster brown, you need to be on the receiving end of a dam good asswhippin. Please Lord, next time let it be ME!!!!!

    Bob Etheridge looks like fricken Dracula in the video,
    its probably a good thing the kid diddnt hit him,
    it might have killed him, Douchebag , yes, deserving an ass whippin, yes , lets just watch him fade away in November.

    And just think…PMSNBC says his is a ‘safe seat’. Hmmm… I’m thinking that seat got a lot less safe in the last 24 hours. :twisted:

  22. comment number 22 by: HoosierArmyMom

    If that had been my son… he would think walking barefoot on hot coals was preferable to dealing with ME!!!! That’s all I’ll say.
