Bob Dold is fighting hard everyday for the people of the 10th. I am a independent, I voted for Obama in 2008 and swing side to side. Bob Dold is one of the greatest reps in the country, I encourage everyone to read these independent articles that articulate Dold's commitment to Bipartisanship. http://www.cq.com/graphics/weekly/2012/01/16/wr20120116-02prezsupport-cht4.pdf http://www.nationaljournal.com/voteratings2011/searchable-vote-ratings-tables-house-20120223 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/bob_dold/412420

Bob Dold is an independent voice in congress and is consistently ranked as one of the most independent members of congress. Progressives, like Brad Schneider, need to stop falsely portraying Bob Dold as an extremist.

I don't need to read an article you offer, I go by the votes placed by Dold. You can lie and say what a great guy he is but his votes are public. You can spread his propaganda but Grandma will still be forced to heat her house with candles and eat cat food if Dold's policies become law. Facts are facts!

Dold's stance on Keystone is a prime example of an anti-environment, pro-party line position. Here's something some of you may not know about the Keystone Pipeline. It will deliver oil to a tax free port in Texas so they can refine it and export gasoline. That's right. All this fuss is about building an environmentally unsound pipeline so Texans can refine the oil and export it. Then, we export our young men and women to the Persian Gulf to protect the oil that we do consume. The truth is what the Republican's will wish to avoid the next few months as Dold build is war chest.
