Is this an attack on a disabled vet or politics as usual?

Do you think that this is an attack on a disabled veteran or politics as usual?

For those who do not know her, Ms. Duckworth is the first disabled woman veteran to be elected to the US House of Representatives.  She has also served as an Assistant Secretary in the Dept. of Veterans Affairs as well as being the director of the Illinois Dept. of Veterans Affairs.  She is an Iraq war veteran who lost both of her legs as a combat helicopter pilot.

Sadly, it's both. Some politicians have no boundaries.

Well I thought that Republicans supported veterans.  Granted, being a veteran I don't really see that but that is their line...

Quoting mama_danetta: I thought attacks on disabled vets WERE politics as usual.

Just like Bernie, it's a poor choice of words.
