Josh Mandel Calls Opponent “Pussy” In Near Fist-Fight

These are statesmen?   This is what passes as reasonable people for the US congress?   This is what the Republican party has devolved into.   Thugs.   Hyper aggressive and quick to anger.   Threaten violence to get what you want.   The people that voted for tRump love this as they run on emotion.  They don’t think things out, they yell and scream.  

The right wing Washington Examiner reports:

Ohio Republican Senate candidates Josh Mandel and Mike Gibbons nearly came to blows during a candidate forum Friday evening. Mandel, a former state treasurer and an early front-runner in the race, has targeted Gibbons in recent weeks in the contentious and competitive Republican primary.

At a GOP candidate forum organized by FreedomWorks, Mandel claimed that Gibbons made “billions of dollars” shipping Ohio businesses to China. Gibbons disputed the claim, saying Mandel “never worked in the private sector.”

Mandel then jumped up and stood inches from Gibbons, yelling that he served two tours in Iraq. “Don’t tell me I haven’t worked,” Mandel said.

The Huffington Post reports:

“You’re dealing with the wrong guy,” said Mandel, the race’s evangelical-backed candidate, after a heated exchange about Gibbons’ business interests in China, seemingly mumbling under his breath: “You watch what happens. Pussy.”

Making the incident all the more disturbing, the two men are the current front-runners in the primary to replace Republican Sen. Rob Portman, who is retiring. It underscores just how intense Ohio’s primary has gotten and the extreme plays the candidates are willing to make to get Donald Trump’s attention.

The moderator intervened just as Vance urged them: “Guys, sit down. C’mon. God damn. This is ridiculous.”

    1. Hello Nan. Yes, but we don’t let 7 year old’s make laws the rest of us have to follow. I am stunned that this is what the cult base loves. it is why Marge Greene is such a hit with the base. Why Matt Gaetz is such a loud mouth even though he has a real personal legal issue that would make you think he would keep his head down. 1/3 of the US government or 1/2 of one of the major political parties thinks being childish is the way to gain more votes.

      How can the US ever get ahead and catch up to other developed nations. Again the Nordic nations took the top spots in the happiness ratings. Finland came out on top if I remember the poll correctly. You would think the US could be on top, we have more power and are the wealthiest nation. The problem is the wealth is all bunched at the top instead of being spread around like these other countries. And the cult base that thinks statesmanship is calling your opponent a pussy, won’t ever understand how much better we could have it.
