That's really a weird video. I wonder if there is more to the story than just this. If not the guy ought to be given the boot by the voters and censured by his party.

From what I saw he only asked him if he supported the Obama agenda. This guy might be looking for a job in the next week or so. Well probably not sense the dems don't seem to care unless they have an R behind their name.

Breitbart is very well known for releasing selectively edited videos.

That's the problem tho, who knows what lead up to this. Maybe they had people all along his path, harassing him as he walked. I don't know. I don't understand why they would fuzz the student's face out. Overall, he is still responsible for his actions which were clearly out of proportion to the student's actions.

Looks like the actions from a person who knows his days are numbered. I'm guessing whoever runs against him now has a great campaign add. The bad part is he was just past the kid when he turned to assult him. If he would have just kept walking he could have hid his anger for a few more months.

Yes, a congressman should handle himself better. You can't manhandle people even if they're harassing you...ever.

Had to do some searching, but I found his Party affiliation. Of course, since it didn't mention "Republican" in the headline, it's safe to assume it was a Democrat. When it's an "R", headlines everywhere mention it...when it's a "D", they don't mention it. :doh:

I agree with FD...looks like he's nervous about his job security...as he should be.

How about when they had the post office scandal (I think that one) and one of the major news papers put an R behind all the names saying it meant Representative when called out on the issue.

How much searching did you have to do? It says right in the first few seconds of the video. It's in the first few lines (if not the first line) of multiple news reports

I wonder what would have happened if that kid knocked the crap out of Bob when he snatch his cell phone. If you watch the video it was actually the senator who got up in the kids face.
