    What do you think of a politician who tells a father his son will be executed?

    Todd Kincannon, former head of S Carolina GOP tweeted to Berghdal's father that his son will be executed when Cruz becomes president. This is not the first time he has denigrated a vet:http://wonkette.com/508227/former-south-carolina-gop-head-loves-the-troops-so-much-he-wishes-this-one-vet-had-come-home-in-a-body-bag
    Between that, and denying funds for veteran's care....can we say the GOP hates veterans?

    Sickening to see a politician or anyone for that matter talking to his father that way. Shows how seriously immature he is and lacks common sense. No one has to agree on the son, but every one should agree there are certain "blows" you don't throw. This "blow" is obviously below the belt and speaks volumes about the childish politician! Say these things among friends or in forums, but to direct it straight at the father is sick in my opinion.

      I completely agree, sadly, people still vote for idiots like this.

      Sickening but not surprising to me. It's a matter of breeding. When respect goes out the window, so does rational thinking.

      Rational thinking went bye bye in 2010.

    me too.....psychopathic, IMO. Starting in 2010, there have been a long line of them. It's very atavistic in nature, and makes me wonder who's calling the shots.

    In the US today, there is a very serious effort to return to a period in US history by certain politicians. "Back" is the word they most prefer. "Forward," "Progress," and "Change" is anathema to them.

    Cruz has no hope of becoming president. He's the GOP's Great White Hope for Keystone. As a former Republican woman for 33 years, I left the party when I'd had enough of Republican men bullying, turning the clock back and generally manipulating facts, truth and Constitutional rights. Today, I loathe what the GOP has become.

    These GOP Twerpie Generation politicians are too young, too inexperienced and too self-serving to be involved in government business. In my view, they represent a generation of spoiled little bois who aged out of the McMansions at 35 and hoped to retire on their political pensions by age 40. I have zero respect for these twerps.

    The problem with these Twerpie CEO wannabees is that they refuse to accept that government is NOT a corporation nor, should it EVER be. The day that happens, the American populous becomes a serfdom under the control of all of the little Mad Max mentalities. Sorry, no can do.

      Yes, we are slotted to be the next cheap labor pool, AND healthcare/food provider for poverty-wage workers--all so owners can "take the money and run"
      Bush Daddy did it in 2000...during Argentina collapse. Offered us up, so to speak.

      My ear virginity was broken with Rush Limbaugh...his vitriol and hate brought in the Age of Baggers and all this venomous crap. Trust me--I've had a lot of putrid things said to me and about me......they are not playing with the same deck of cards...

      Oh it's real...Trump brought him up again too. And if 2 guys from Boston beat up a Mexican man because they were stirred up by Trump's mouth:.imagine what Bergdahl could suffer? Words matter. They all have blood on their hands, IMO
