You know when you go up to your member of Congress and ask if they support the president’s agenda how they almost always take a swipe at you and then put you in a semi headlock? Yeah, Democrat Rep. Bob Etheridge of N. Carolina did that to a student who approached him on the street.

Etheridge’s opponent Renee Ellmers’ campaign might get some advertising mileage out of this one (suggested slogan: “I’ll focus my swings on knocking out the debt instead of my constituents”):

Getting a little testy, aren’t they?

Newsbusters asks: Did Etheridge commit a crime? Well, Etheridge voted for the health care sham, so he may have done so long before he took a swipe at this kid.

Reminder for Democrats: If somebody comes up to you and expresses a concern for where their tax dollars are going, just do like Charles Rangel and say “None of your damn business” and walk away.

Update (MM): Bob “Headlock” Etheridge is sorry…that he got caught:

Rep. Bob Etheridge apologized Monday for his physical confrontation with two young men who identified themselves as students and asked if the North Carolina Democrat “fully supports the Obama agenda.”

“I have seen the video posted on several blogs. I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction and I apologize to all involved.

Read the rest of his pathetic response, which blames “intrusive and partisan” politics for his behavior and ends with this triple-snorter:

“I have and I will always work to promote a civil public discourse.”

***

Help GOP challenger Renee Elmers send Bob Etheridge home.

Democrats blame the messenger.

Update 2:52pm Easter: Etheridge at apology presser…”All of us have bad days, but that’s no excuse.”

Update: More video via Breitbart via Hot Air.
