Bob Etheridge's abject apology for roughing up an anonymous conservative videographer is being accompanied by a defense of the congressman from national Democrats.
"Motives matter, and I think you can see who was behind this," said DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse just now. "This was a Republican party tracking operation. If it wasn't a party tracker or intern, why is the face blurred and why is the source hidden? You know if it had been a right wing blog, they'd identify themselves and they'd be booking this person on TV all day. Republicans know if they admit their involvement in this game of gotcha it will undermine their credibility. One minute this guy is interviewing a member of Congress on camera and the next a video is released with his face blurred out? If that doesnt tell you this is a Republican Party hatchet job nothing will."

Oh right.... victims of assault are only victims if Big Brother says so.
Thanks Goodness he didn’t call them a name (like Macaca) and only assaulted them instead. Had it been the other way around we would see it on tv and in the Washington Post for a month!
George Allen was followed everywhere he went in 2006 by Jim Webb political operatives who filmed his every public move and comments, but I guess that was ok with the MSM because Allen was the Repub.
Is anyone going to call democrats out for constantly claiming “they” are behind everything?
Last time I checked democrats in office are supposed to represent all their constituents, not just liberal democrats.
The evil “they” are the American people.
You had two well dressed young men ask a simple polite question, if that was us I’m proud of us.
All I saw was a student saying hello, asking how he was and then asking if he supported the Obama agenda?
How is that in any relevant to the sleazy gotcha politics of the scumbag un-American liberal media?
“...If that doesnt tell you this is a Republican Party hatchet job nothing will...”
What is a “hatchet job” about asking what an elected official supports??? The elected official should be happy to discuss his views with constituents and other voters...
He needs to realize that what he thinks and what he does is what brings him votes...
What he DID was to eliminate votes...
from the article: “Debunked Acorn Videos”
They are delusional.
“Ded Kennedy (D-HELL)”
Hahahahaha!!!!! Love it!
Ben Smith thinks that if the kids were Republicans, then they deserved to be slapped around.
The summer of rage begins.
Republicans are amazing. They make make a Dem Congressman physically abusively by asking if the Dem supports 0bama's agenda AND they can convince Dems to vote for a primary candidate that..., well, is Alvin Greene.
Face it Dems not only are you and your party STUPID but now you condone abusive behavior.
Unbelievable. Last week we had that guy punching a Tea Party member in the face over the bailouts, some liberal biting off a guy’s finger last summer, and now this?
These people are like animals.
Whoaa! I just saw the video and that is definitely assault.
At least he didn’t call the kid a “Macaca”!
They also have no problem with the Klansman from West Virginia, calling him "the conscience of the Senate."
I've sent my donation!
I am so sick and tired of Democrats.
