    I've see so much disrespect for our heroes like John Kerry and Chuck Hagel, public servants who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. The GOP's behavior reminds me of the Westboro Baptist Church protesting at funerals.

    One is just a watered down version of the extreme other.

    Not to mention the GOP, with Hagel, is throwing one of their own under the bus.

    Making the ultimate sacrifice for one's country is giving their life for it something I'm 100 percent certain Kerry and Hagel have not done. I seem to recall some very ugly and disrespectful treatment by the left in regards to John McCain and his military service in 2008 Careful with the rocks in that glass house.

    I was always under the impression the "ultimate sacrifice" was death.

    I was not aware that it was the GOP that referred to General David Patraeus as General Betrayus. :lol:

    Oh, and decades before I was born, wasn't it people with your political beliefs that were spitting on our soldiers and calling them baby killers as they came back from Vietnam? Yeah....so don't try and fool us with this sudden respect for military vets. We all know your real military hero is Major Nidal Hasan!!!

    Not surprised. The Tea Party was able to convince the GOP to throw cops and firemen under the bus without hesitation, and they outright talked shit about those men and women while doing it. They lost a lot of support and votes because of it.

    there may be word that gets more regularly abused than *hero*, but i won't hazard a guess as to what it is.

    I don't recall a whole lot of respect for McCain, a man who spent 5 years as a POW.
