Handsome Jewish Man[edit]

Shouldn't the article include some information about his modeling career?

Documentary[edit]

Something should be said about his appearance in the documentary film Bigger, Stronger, Faster. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.15.127.253 (talk) 21:06, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

I think it's ludicrous that this business about his appearance in the steroids documentary is figured so prominently in the article (in the third paragraph). Can it be moved down to a more appropriate place? Perhaps a section on his policies? 128.12.156.208 (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 02:42, 10 November 2008 (UTC).

Where[edit]

is his opponents' list?

Thank You.

Anti-Semitic spin[edit]

Despite the fact that this article wholly omits reference to the much written about and criticized "Waxman-Berman Machine", it has the whiff of anti-Semitism about it in the way it reduces his lengthy and largely progressive political record down to his Jewishness, the Iraqi war, and Israel. Balance is wanted. Lethiere 00:27, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

I felt the same way reading it. I removed these two paragraphs:

Critics believe Rep. Waxman did not follow his own advice of "acting and doing the right thing, not simply believing in it or mindlessly following ritual" when he supported the war in Iraq. In 2002, he voted for the resolution that gave President Bush the power to invade Iraq. In an official statement before his vote, he called Saddam Hussein "the patron saint of the homicide bombers in Israel" and added "(w)hether he is tied in with al-Qaeda is still subject to debate, but they share an intense hatred for the United States, Israel, and our allies, and in their willingness to attack civilians to achieve their purposes."[1]
Rep. Waxman's vote for the Iraq War disappointed many of his progressive supporters and constituents. When a number of veteran anti-war activists met with Rep. Waxman in 2005, he was described as "a relatively defensive man who professed to have been “fooled” into voting for the Iraq War by the Bush Administration."[2]

There is a lot of mind reading of his constituents here and it is only sourced by his own site and a site of some of the critics. Steve Dufour 16:06, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

p.s. The fact that he supported the Iraq war should certainly be mentioned, but it shouldn't be mainly about how his critics are said to feel about it. Steve Dufour 16:09, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
