Arrest Bob Etheridge

Arrogant, entitled liberal Democrat Bob Etheridge assaulted a man in broad daylight in front of witnesses on a Washington, DC street, in an encounter that was captured on two cell phone cameras and broadcast around the world.

The attack was indefensible, by Etheridge's own admission.

The Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department needs to launch a full and immediate investigation of this incident. Chief of Police Cathy L. Lanier has a responsibility to protect people in her city from all criminal behavior, even that committed by Democratic Congressmen.

Update: A protest against Etheridge by his constituents is scheduled for tomorrow in Raleigh.

You can also protest Etheridge by contributing to his opponent in November, Renee Ellmers, here.

OK...I am now holding my breath until a full blown investigation is launched, and Mr. OBAMA can find whose A$$ to kick.

turning red...turning purple...still waiting...

It's Obama who set the tone... HE is the one with "get in their face", "hit back twice as hard", and gonna "kick ass" while Salazar puts his "boot on their throat". What the HELL is this, the Third Reich?

Now this arrogant clown Etheridge thinks it OK to get violent with an innocent reporter asking a question… and in the most polite fashion imaginable- who cares what his motivations were or weren't.

What a horrible example Team Obama and allied union thugs have set for their minions.. who now feel free to lash out like punks at any who dare question them.

And anyone who still considers Obama some sort of unifier ought to have their head examined-

Go, Bob Etheridge! Those were some fine martial arts moves. Two strangers jump at you on a street, get in your personal space and shove an object in your face - that's called self defense, and even congressmen have a right to it. Like Mike Flynn observes, that was lightning quick. It's a training film for the dojo.

I wish to hell it was my arm he grabbed. He would find his arm up his butt. Then he could scratch his nose.

Tell it to Ted Kennedy.

You should actually watch the video there, Storm. Then you'd be able to describe what happened as opposed to relating some imaginary conflict like the one in your comment.

Being a Democrat does not give anyone the right to assault people just like that. I wonder if the student reporter plans to press charges against Bob Etheridge.
