Midterm Results Provide a Fresh Start

Americans decisively voted to move our country in a new direction by repudiating President Obama’s failed policies. I returned to the Senate to tackle the big issues we face and pass along a stronger America to the next generation. 
 
To my great frustration, Harry Reid effectively shut down the Senate during the last four years, stifling debate and blocking proposals that did not fit his narrow political agenda. 
 
This change in leadership provides a fresh start and an opportunity to move forward much-needed measures to strengthen our economy and spur job creation.

 

 
Anonymous Attacks on Israeli PM Disgraceful
 
An anonymous Obama Administration official recently directed vulgar insults at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a media interview. 
 
A verbal assault on an important friend in the Middle East damages our efforts in a critical region at a critical time. 

As a former ambassador, I have managed disagreements between allies. Frank exchanges can become fraught, but they should not erupt publicly, and they should never descend to the personal. In less than a month, the results of long negotiations with Iran over its dangerous nuclear program likely will be announced.

At that time, the United States and Israel must stand together, as sustainable support for any agreement will require a united front. A strong response to failed negotiations or faulty results also will require a consensus between our countries. 

An enormous amount is at stake for both the United States and Israel. Now is not the time for snarky name calling between allies, and anonymity only makes it worse.
