Pretty sincere apology. Can’t ask for much more than that.

See post #18.

Nothing truly sincere in this apology.

I hope that's sarcasm.
I'd ask that he have enough common sense to not assault constituents who ask him a question.

The video was taken LAST WEEK. Only after it went viral did he bother to make an apology. Not when it happened. Not immediately afterwards.

This isn't an apology, it's a "sorry I got caught" mea culpa.

I disagree. The apology is pure spin.

"I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect."

The question posed was viewpoint neutral.

"No matter how intrusive and partisan our politics can become, this does not justify a poor response..."

There was nothing intrusive or partisan about the students actions. They were polite and well within their rights.

I can. I'd like a conviction for Assault and Battery.

You're kidding, right? If this was a Republican, they'd be demanding his resignation right now. And the Republican would be hammered relentlessly by the press, the liberal elite and the Hollywood establishment. The video would be playing constantly on the media, 24/7, on TMZ--everywhere, until his reputation was destroyed. The lawyers would have served him papers in a lawsuit, before EOB today, and the kid would be lauded as some kind of hero, instead of being treated like some kind of pariah. So, no, I'm expecting much, much more from this POS "Public Servant" who would try to man-handle and bully a kid for asking a simple, honest question.

Not too sincere when he has to add that.

Actually I can ask for a lot more than that. Assault, battery and theft (you did notice he took the kids cell phone) usually call for more than an apology, no mater how sincere. And that one wan't particularly sincere as he tried to justify his actions by claiming it was intrusive.

Put it this way, if i grab some woman, take her purse and then get caught, can I just say I'm sorry and get away with it? If not then neither can this congress critter.

Thank you for the post Mrs. Eitheridge.

Calling the questioning “partisan [and] intrusive” is exactly the sort of weasel worded non-apology that these pols specialize in.

How about this?

“I was sh*tfaced drunk and did not know what I was doing. I am sorry I assaulted this young man. I have a problem with alcohol and am checking into re-hab immediately.”

Great! If I rob a bank, and the police drop by to ask questions, all I have to do it apologize and they will go away.

“He deserved it because he was intrusive...” /paraphrase Still lacking just a little. Better than most, however.

I’d ask for damages and jail time for assault.

You are way forgiving. Hope you’re on the jury if I ever get tried.

“Pretty sincere apology. Can’t ask for much more than that.”

Sure we can.

Let’s start with censure for his outrageous conduct. Then, let’s do criminal prosecution. Then, let’s see him lose his seat. And we’ll follow up with him getting sued.

Actions have consequences.

An arrest is appropriate for an assault
