A Tale of Two Congressmen

Peek-A-Boo Congressman Brad Schneider (D-10th) continues his sleigh of hand campaigning tricks. The latest is from his new ad, where he wants to "lower taxes for the middle class," once again taking a well established Republican message and adopting it as his own mantra.

Anyone see some missing pertinent information about our Peek-A-Boo Congressman? The Daily Herald recently ran a nice article where you can view both former Congressman Dold's first official campaign ad and that of Peek-A-Boo Schneider. The article can be accessed by clicking here. The television ads are included as part of the article.
The contrast in messaging is pretty telling.

Dold's ad includes speaking directly to all types of constituents, including minorities and his offer to be a problem solver. Dold is seen speaking directly to voters in multiple scenes. 

Peek-A-Boo Schneider's ad does not feature a single minority face. Other than his purchase of coffee, Schneider views purported district residents from his automobile. Only white constituents are featured on sidewalks while he repeatedly asserts that he is a Democrat. He asserts he will stop Tea Party obstruction, not mentioning that he has failed to do so for the nearly two years he has held office.

Also missing is any statement that Schneider is the current Congressman elected from Illinois' 10th Congressional District. Or that he is seeking reelection to office. He is in his second year of service in Congress. Doesn't he know that? Or is he pretending? Yet again?

Being less than transparent about his taxes since first running for office and since his election. Being less than transparent about his past business background including the mysterious Cadence business thing that vanished after his election. Demanding that Dold fully disclose his business activities while he fails to disclose his own? Avoiding League of Women debates in the 10th Congressional District? The League of Women Voters?

And I thought Peek-A-Boo Schneider was pro-female.

Peek-A-Boo Mr. Schneider. We still see right through you!
