While President Obama struggles with a gush of oil, Bob Etheridge struggles with a gush of videos.
It’s the worst close-up since Helen Thomas.
Team Etheridge has to push back. And the best defense is a good offense.
No, there’s no excuse for Etheridge touching – let alone grabbing – the obnoxious, faceless little twerps who stuck a camera in his face.
But something about this operation reminds me of Richard Nixon’s crowd and their dirty tricks.
Etheridge, now that he’s apologized, should turn the tables and turn public cynicism against his tormentors.

Everything about the operation smells of set-up. It's sad that Etheridge gave them what they wanted, but I think most people see it for what it was, and the idea of a backlash against this kind of smarm isn't too farfetched.

What needs to happen is that bully-boy Etheridge needs to be prosecuted, convicted and sentenced for the assault and battery he clearly committed, and he needs some probation with some anger management.
No words alone can ever justify an assault, and the video shows the young men were actually polite and asked a reasonable question. ''Obnoxious''??? Not hardly.
If you want a dirty tricks operation, I would refer you to the Macaca operation against Senator George Allen.
Etheridge is a snivelling little Pelosi ass-kisser who needs to be bounced out of Congress. Fine, let him make his bully-boy episode the centerpiece of his campaign. That will only help to get his worthless ass out of Congress.

Buffoon Etheridge is already the butt of jokes, but being such an ass himself.
Here is an example from today's Atlanta Journal Constitution:
The joke on Etheridge is in the last paragraph.

Anyone with an IQ over 90 will watch the full video, with the two students politely greeting Etheridge, and know what a thug Etheridge really is. I don't blame the students for staying anon - bet they'd have death threats from the unhinged, hateful Left.
Only hard-core Left-wing propagandists attempt to turn the tables & damn the messenger. The best defense is a good offense, Gary? Exactly what are you suggesting? Tell us how you really feel. Only a Democrat/liberal/progressive, with no moral backbone, who subscribes to situational ethics, will attempt to excuse physical violence because s/he disagrees with someone's politics. Hypocrite.
Feeling desperate, Gary? Bet we'll have more smarm from the Dems now.
Exactly when can anyone ask a question of His Majesty Bob Etheridge? He refused to participate in town halls last year. He's past his prime, out of date, over the hill - toast.
The more virulent the attacks from Gary, the more you know he's really scared that Ellmers might just have a real chance to unseat the King of the 2nd District.

Anyone with an IQ higher than the number of teeth in your head knows those weren't "students."

Anyone with an IQ higher than the number of teeth in your head knows this was assault. Yeah, yeah...I know these kids have been said to be "activists" and "plants" and so forth...um, anyone actually shown that? And, even if they were...radical far left liberals like Brunette here think it's just fine that these kids were assaulted because they might have been...supposedly were...plants and asking questions the congressman didn't like.
If this were a republican congressman...Brunette would be so pissed off and would be so adamant about him resigning and so all about prosecuting him. But, hey, he was a congressman with a "D" in front of his name.
So...we're seeing people like puppet-Bru and others defending him and thinking that he did what he did because these guys "weren't students".
Okay...I don't think student or not students...the congressman is on tape assaulting these kids...but, um, Brunette...come up with some proof that they weren't students and that they weren't doing a project and they were ...as you want people to believe...wrong in enacting their first amendment rights.
You show that, Brunette. You say if a republican did this you would be defending him/her. You tell us the truth. Otherwise, m'lady, your just one more radical far left liberal without any idea about right and wrong and .... well, you get the point, I'm sure.

First the assertion that Bob Etheridge is somehow now a liberal or progressive just shows how ill informed you are. Second it's kind of hard to arrest him if the "victims" don't press charges. You know they would have to identify themselves then so don't hold your breath. Third if holding on to someone's wrist for a few seconds and swinging them around (probably so that their face would be revealed) is going to be the bar used for any real world prosecution for assault then you better be ready for "big government" because the courts are going to be overwhelmed. The long and short of this is the Bob lost his cool, the rightwingers got a chance to shine a negative light on him, and he apologized for his actions without making any excuses. Ellmers gets some free air time, some out of state money, and something to exploit in her upcoming mailers, internet blogs, and TV ads (if she has the money for that). That pretty much takes care of it. The voters of the 2nd congressional district will settle it regardless of what anyone else has to say about it.

Huh? maybe you missed Comrade Etheridge's extreme left wing votes on two of the most extreme left wing bills ever presented in the US Congress, Obamacare to steal our healthcare, and Cap and Tax to raise the cost of energy dramatically and indeed the cost of just about everything just to pay homage to the highly politicicsed theory of global warming. And if you do not realize that global warming is a left wing political fraud, then you apparently missed Climategate.
What Etherdige is, in reality, is the typical Democrat phony who talks conservative at home and votes to the left of Lenin in Washington, DC. Well, that dishonest political pattern is going to catch up to Comrade Etheridge this time. He has voted with the far left on too many high profile sociialistic bills and he cannot cover up that voting record.
