Reid's words more than over the line

Have we become so calloused that when tragic events occur, nothing seems to faze us?
Where is the outrage over the insensitive, outlandish remarks by Sen. Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-Nevada)?
Speaking on the Senate floor, Sen. Reid had the gall to link the deaths of seven United States Marines to the sequester. The senator's remarks are unconscionable and I believe he owes the American people in general an apology, and certainly the U.S. Marine Corps in particular.
His politicizing such a horrendous occasion is thoroughly disgusting and is beneath the dignity of a Senate leader. It will be interesting to see just how his office will "spin" his latest gaffe.
