I told you this was coming.
democrats have set a new low for behavior. When someone from the Obama suck-up Politico likens it to "stalking" you know it has to be bad.
But Democrats are testing the outer limits of that understanding with a practice that raises questions about when campaign tracking becomes something more like stalking.
While most serious campaigns on both sides use campaign trackers staffers whose job is to record on video every public appearance and statement by an opponent House Democrats are taking it to another level. Theyre now recording video of the homes of GOP congressmen and candidates and posting the raw footage on the Internet for all to see.
And not just displaying their homes but also posting their addresses
Republicans whose homes have been videotaped say they understand that politics is a contact sport and that every public utterance they make is fair game. But, they argue, filming a home and posting actual addresses ought to be off-limits, if only out of respect for their families and neighbors.
I think your family or your personal life should be off-limits unless it enters the campaign, said Ohio Rep. Jim Renacci, who said a neighbor informed him that a tracker had been crouching in the bushes taking footage of the first-term congressmans home. Its hard for my neighbors or my family to get comfortable when someone is in the bushes.
democrats claim Republicans do it too but maybe they don't
And on Tuesday, aides to Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop said they found a tracker working for his Republican opponent, Randy Altschuler, sitting outside the congressmans Long Island, N.Y., home with a camera.
But Bishops campaign said it did not believe any footage of the home had been made public.
Their excuses for this behavior are lame
House Republicans have spent this entire Congress trying to hide that theyre protecting benefits for millionaires and perks for themselves instead of protecting the middle class, but we wont let them keep it secret any longer, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokesman Jesse Ferguson wrote in an email.
One GOP Congressman made it clear he won't tolerate abuse of his family:

I saw a whole lot of mainstream comments on whether Bristol Palin was pregnant in this picture (Note: she was not pregnant when this was taken.).
I saw even more discussion on whether Sarah was wrong, selfish, and irresponsible for keeping her new baby. As Bill Maher typically puts it, with the usual hateful liberal twist: "...while we were off, Sarah Palin agreed to do commentary at Fox News. Which is actually very similar to her day job - talking to a baby with Down Syndrome."
Then there were Letterman's sexual "jokes" about Piper Palin.
It is way too late to worry about starting to pick on politician's kids. Or are we worried that other kids of politicians will be treated like the Palins? I don't worry about that. No liberal will be criticized, regardless of how hateful their comments. Any conservative who treated Sacha and Malia like the average liberal treated the Palin children would be deservedly shunned at best. As for poisoning our pets, that sounds like the sort of thing PETA would do, doesn't it?
Burn down their churches maybe?
Rep. Jon Runyan (R-NJ) had his young daughter photographed while playing in the backyard of their home by his Democrat opponent’s campaign. The Runyan yard had no vantage points from adjacent properties or from the street. Runyan was able to prove that tresspassing had occurred.
For those of you not familiar with Jon Ruyan, he was a former offensive tackle with the Philadelphia Eagles. Very big dude and not someone you’d want to get mad at you.
I would say that calling 911, giving the address of a conservative, and claiming that multiple murders had just taken place is a serious escalation of the brain dead DemoCrap tactics.
They won’t do these criminal acts themselves they will just incite other evil minded immoral people to do them....
If I found them hiding in MY bushes, I would make sure they’d have to crawl out of them. as they sure as hell wouldn’t be able to walk.
Oh, let’s see:
Churches firebombed? Check.
SWAT teams dispatched to private homes? Check.
Sealed court transcripts released prior to election night? Check.
Rape jokes on national TV? Check.
