Yes, the right has done this multiple times recently. Benghazi, Newtown, and the political cartoon involving Chris Kyle. It's a typical M.O. for the right to accuse the left of being anti-military and unpatriotic.
This is funny, because what Reid is arguing for is pro-military. If the right doesn't like what he's saying, that non-discretionary cuts to the military are a bad thing, then argue against that rather that pulling this "he's disrespecting the deceased" card. If people want to call him an idiot for comparing this accident to what can happen as deeper cuts to training and maintenance go forward, fine do it.
When Romney decided to politicize Benghazi right after it happened, people didn't accuse him of disrespecting the dead, they accused him of being an idiot for talking about something he was uninformed about. The "disrespecting the dead" card was again dealt to Obama and the left.
