Where Does Brad Jones Stand on Iraq?

The strange world of the 24th District Republicans is laid out plain for us all to see on the Brad Jones for Congress issues page.

Here are the issues Brad Jones has listed as important to his campaign:

  • Economic development
  • Indian Land Claim
  • Energy
  • Consolidation
  • Health Care / Medicaid
  • Internal Revenue Service
  • Stem Cell Research
  • Abortion

    Why isn't the Iraq War on this list?

    Our soldiers are in the middle of what Iyad Allawi, Bush's first pick as Prime Minister of Iraq, has called "a civil war", and Brad Jones thinks that stopping stem cell research is more important?

    These are not the values of the 24th District, Mr. Jones. Our nation is at war, and whether or not you were wise enough to oppose that war from the start, it at least deserves to be on your list of issues that you need to deal with as a member of the United States House of Representatives.

    Failure to address this issue is, in itself, good reason for voters to judge you as disqualified for office.

    Judging from that response, Jones might have a better chance of running for office in China.
