Bob Dold is sending emails out daily and recently this one was titled: “We must not be fooled into false choices” regarding the constant Republican put down of the complex country of Iran.
I got the email “because you care about Israel” from Rep. Dold literally just hours after the announcement of Iran “deal” being sent to Congress. I wondered how someone could so quickly understand and repudiate this important pivotal moment in Mideast foreign policy. Bob Dold is raising the fear factor without facts again in his campaigning against Brad Schneider and allowing the Republican National Committee to spread this HUGE lie in all the ads.
Dold wrote an op-ed opposing the deal on July 14, 2015, the day the terms of the Iran deal were made public. Instead of giving the most important vote of his career the time and attention it deserved, instead of questioning experts and seeking answers from the administration, Dold rushed out with an op-ed that reads like it was written in advance of the deal’s release.
Schneider took a different approach. He studied the issue and met with opponents and supporters of the deal. Brad Schneider even lost the backing of some democrat congressional leaders in his primary. Brad’s thoughtful leadership on the terrorist issue and the Middle East is exactly what will prevent another Republican-led debacle of the Bush era that has laid the foundation for the quick to judge and even quicker to build fear without facts.
Save yourself from spam and that’s right, let’s not make false choices. Vote for Brad Schneider to return to sit as a respected member on the Foreign Relations committee again.
