Chris Dodd for President, Inc.
Produced by Saul Schorr
Dodd: Half measures won't stop this president from continuing our involvement
in Iraq's civil war.
That's why I'm fighting for the only responsible measure in Congress that would take away the President's blank check and set a timetable to bring our troops home.
Unfortunately, my colleagues running for President have not joined me.
I'm Chris Dodd. I'm running for President.
I approved this message because we can't simply wait for a new President. We should have the conviction to stand up to this one.
|Notes: Dodd is supporting the Reid-Feingold
legislation, which according to the press release "would bring an end to
the war by requiring the President to safely and responsibly redeploy all
combat troops by March 31, 2008." The release notes, "Unlike other
proposals, Dodd's plan is the only measure which would use the Congressional
power of the purse to end the war by a date certain and responsibly redeploy
combat troops." Further, according to the release,
"This ad draws a clear distinction between Senator Dodd and the rest of the Democratic field," said Dodd campaign manager Sheryl Cohen. "Chris Dodd understands that half measures aren't going to change George Bush's course in Iraq, and he's set himself apart by fighting for a plan that would use Congressional power to require the President to safely and responsibly redeploy American troops and bring an end to the war."Observations: Like the Edwards campaign's first ad "We the People-Iowa" from a week earlier, Iraq is the theme, but the approach to the subject is vastly different..
