WOW! Democrat Congressman Bob Etheridge (D-NC2) Attacks College Students (Big Govt. Video)
The ambush interview style that has been made so popular by Jason Mattera, among others, can be dangerous. From Mike Flynn at Big Government, two college students meet North Carolina Congressman Bob Etheridge on the street and ask him if he supports the Nancy Pelosi agenda. His reaction will shock you.

UPDATE (Corrected): 6/14 3:15 pm – The Nazis nice people at You Tube pulled did not pull the video, Breitbart did because they spotted an error on the graphics. In addition, here is a Daily Motion version of the video via Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air.
“I think you’re going to see those kids keeping a very low profile for a while, the D-triple-C is playing for keeps — they’re out for blood.”
UPDATE III: 6/4 3:40 pm – Ethridge has apoligized for the incident and for good reason as Stacy McCain points out at TOM;
A Democrat in a Republican-leaning North Carolina District, Etheridge was leaving a fundraiser with Nancy Pelosi when two college kids with a video camera asked him a simple question
As far as most North Carolinians are concerned, Etheridge being outed for attending a fundraiser with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will be as just damaging to his career as the video of him manhandling the two young men.
UPDATE IV: 6/4 7:40 pm – Here is the Text of Etheridge’s “apology’:
“I have seen the video posted on several blogs. I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction and I apologize to all involved. Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect. No matter how intrusive and partisan our politics can become, this does not justify a poor response. I have and I will always work to promote a civil public discourse.”
So yeah, he apologized … Just like a rapist apologizes for violating a woman who decided to dress pretty.
