Flingingpoo - Asking a question is provoking an attack? Really? Is this how you respond to questions? Interesting...

It`s always funny when someone provokes a person into a reaction then videotapes it and calls it an attack.

Really? Here in Western NC they are reporting that the Congressman assaulted the students and showed most of what I saw here. It`s a shame the media would report otherwise when it`s painfully obvious the man didn`t behave like an adult.

actually he had no right to know who they were or grab them in anyway at all.

he had a right to refuse to answer any questions but he didnt even have the right to NOT appear on that video as he was in a public place and he is a public servant.

honestly, that kid would have been within his rights to knock the stupid off that congressman as self-defense.

a lawyer could quickly argue unlawful detainment and physical assult.

I hope that idiot gets charged for that.

He had the right to know who they were before he answered their question, but when they didn`t give him the info he should have just walked away.

The politician should have said, if he truly was having a bad day, "Look guys, I`m not having a good day today, if you could stop by my office later today, I`ll be happy to answer a few questions." Or simply say "Maybe some other time guys."
The college kids should have simply stated "We`re college students from So-and-So University, and we`re doing a project for So-and-So class; would you mind answering a few questions?" And if he refused, accept it.

But his career will go unscathed. The liberal media will swallow this one like a prostitute on the job.

I`d want to hear the whole story before making up my mind. To me, this looks edited to just convey him a loon, going berserk straightaway. I get the strong impression that this actually went on longer than it shows, leaving time for verbal antagonization and possibly even physical harrassment. And I`m suspicious of the government at the best of times.

If it were any one of us grabbing someone, the only thing the cops would want to know is who put their hands on somebody else first. I want to see that same standard applied to this politician.

"However, I will say that this one particular politician was very much in the wrong, no matter how much he was being taunted, and in this case, it doesn`t matter what his political party is."

Agreed- although he was barely being taunted at all before he lost his sh*t and started acting like a malfunctioning android.

Some of the comments on here are rather ridiculous. First off, not all the media is strictly liberal (look at fox news for example), and not all politicians, be they liberal or conservative are corrupt. If they all were, our country would have fallen apart from day one.

However, I will say that this one particular politician was very much in the wrong, no matter how much he was being taunted, and in this case, it doesn`t matter what his political party is.

I love watching republicans and dems hash it out on these pages. Those of us whom are a bit older know that they are on the same side, they golf together and dine together, and shred each other only when the cameras are on. Politicians creed is one that dates back to General Hannibal of Carthage..Divide and Conquer. You who drink the kool aid of the party lines... are conquered.

Why did they refuse to say who they were? Punk ass kids. If it was actually as innocuous as they claim, then they may as well have qualified themselves and their intentions. The fact that they`re wearing a BLUE tie tends to imply that they`re with the Republican Party.

"These "students" were following him all day across the city repeating the same question over and over again. He didnt just fly off the handle but these kids were stalking him and he finally had enough and demanded to know who they were. Ask yourselves if I was following you asking you the same identical question over and over again at least 20 times in a single day, would you finally snap and want to poo kick the draters?"

do you have like a source or something??

Bad day or not, you don`t do that. I don`t care if he`s apoligized. He was elected by the people to perform admirably. Everyone has bad days. That`s not an excuse. I hope he gets kicked out.

@razlem How did the college student provoke him into assaulting him? By asking a simple question, and not being agressive in any way? O.o

@cuthere and slugs Er...are you forgetting there are Republicans in the media as well? If this guy was a Republican, the Republican media would put a spin on it as well, making him look better. So what`s your point? :\ Both sides are sickeningly biased.

No, Lamiacraor... He`s a Democrat, and thus the Liberal media will either ignore this completely, or if faced with airing it, will put such a spin on the story that he`ll walk away career in tact.

1) The kids were nothing but respectful, which is REALLY impressive. They never threatened him. They never cursed. They called him Sir the whole time. Kudos to them. May all our kids learn from this example.

2) He`s apologized.

Lol, what a jackass, who is so dumb to do something like that? He straight up committed battery, ON CAMERA.

CrakrJak - There are bad folks in politics regardless of party affiliation.

Democrats assault people, Republicans condemn homosexuality in between giving blowjobs. We could go on, but saying "look, a corrupt politician" isn`t exactly a revelation. Politicians can be corrupted, hypocrites, or idiots, no matter the party.
