“Just when you think Republicans can’t sink any lower, they do. Attacking Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl isn’t cutting it anymore. They want more. Now Republicans are going to after his dad, his father, Bob Bergdahl. These guys are ruthless. They have no boundaries. Republicans have made Bob Bergdahl a tool in their toolbox to take down President Obama. They’ll try anything. They don’t like the way he looks. They don’t like the way he talks.
