Since they gained power in 2008, the Dem cabal doesn’t like being questioned by the peasants.
Via Mike Flynn at Big Government:
……It is often difficult to witness people bearing the full weight of the consequences of their decisions, even when it is richly deserved. (And, in the case of House Democrats few have ever been more deserving of reaping everything they’ve sown.) We’re human, after all, and witnessing people on the cusp of realizing that they’ve lost everything can be difficult.
Last week, Democrat Congressman Bod Etheridge (D-NC2) attended a fundraiser headlined by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He was asked by some students on the street whether he supported the “Obama Agenda.” He didn’t take it well.
Expect more of this. The hard, progressive left captured the Democrat majority in Congress and forced them to enact a fantasy grab-bag of legislation that is increasingly unpopular with the American public. We’re on the cusp of a deeper recession, millions of unemployed Americans have no prospect for work, taxes are about to spike higher and we’ve maxed out the national credit card. The Democrats were given a chance to run government and they’ve only succeeded in running it into the ground.

In between assaulting the student, Etheridge demanded to know just who he was. Well, I can tell you who I am: A former Soldier/Iraq War veteran, a proponent of the Bill of Rights and Constitution, a fed-up American, and a registered voter. Had Etheridge laid his hands on me like like that, he’d be singing soprano in the Vienna Boy’s Choir.
Etheridge and his fellow assclowns in D.C. have forgotten that they work for us, not the other way around.
This is the kind of thuggery we’ve come to expect from the Dems at Town Hall meetings, when contacting them on the phone, or though letters and email. They get hostile, evasive, or at the very least, simply spout rehearsed hackneyed excuses.
Etheridge knew damned well what the student meant by “Obama’s agenda”. He meant the destructive, Constitution-violating, socialist state that B. Hussein brought with him from Chicago. The agenda that Americans are protesting. The Dems now realize what they’ve wrought and how badly they’ll get whipped in November. It’s amusing to watch them hide from constituents and campaign from a distance. Many of them are avoiding Obama’s endorsement; refusing to meet with him or allowing him to appear on the same stage. Makes no difference. The time to distance themselves from the mutherfucker was the day he brought his ObamaCare/Dhimmi/Socialist agenda to Washington. The trouble is, they were right on board.
November is coming.
