Well ...given the bytch-slap, hand-holding and man-hugging - I first thought he was another politician about to come out of the closet.

The democrat congressman came out today and appologized and said about the attack:
"it was at the end of a very long day".

That's his explanation.

If there was more to it you'd think he'd be using it to defend himself but he is not.

My guess is that these kids came up to him and asked him if they could ask him a couple questions for school.
He figured they were loyal kool-aide drinkers but when they asked him if he supported obama's policies he realized he'd been had and they weren't his loyal subjects and he lost it.

I'm not defending the congressman, but one thing about this irritates me. Why did the student blur his face out before posting this video? It's kind of cowardly to set a video "trap" for someone, and then hide yourself on the video. I dunno, seems like kind of a double-standard -- you can be publicly embarrassed but not me.

The congressman is a public figure and the subject of the interview. By hiding his face he (the interviewer) can remain a journalist separate from the story. Isn't that what we want from our journalists, show a story not be the story?

I don't care who the interviewer is, just the meat of the story that the congressman acted poorly. Let's see, Who's that interviewer? not much of a story if your ask me.
There is also the possibility of retaliation. Embarrass a prominent politician and don't worry what he might do, is a naive attitude.

Wow, that looks like assault and battery. Dumb a$$. He has no right to do what he did, has no right to know who they are and has every right to walk away.

lol, probably b/c he's not interested in a lifetime of IRS audits, etc. Who knows what this obvious psycho, with the force of govt behind him, could try to do to a mere subject/citizen.

Not sure I see why it is a "video trap." He just walked up to the guy on a public sidewalk and asked a pretty simple question. Not so difficult to handle, is it? What's the "trap?" That he didn't send the guy the question a few days in advance?
