"Making it" in today's GOP
Former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole was asked today if he thought he and those in his cohort would have a place in the Republican Party as it is today:
"I doubt it," he said in an interview aired on "Fox News Sunday" when asked if his generation of Republican leaders could make it in today's GOP. "Reagan couldn't have made it. Certainly, Nixon couldn't have made it, cause he had ideas. We might've made it, but I doubt it."
What a statement coming from one of the grand old men of the Republican Party: Having ideas is a disqualification in today's version of the Grand Old Party.
And this from The Washington Post:
The current GOP ought to be “closed for repairs” because it lacks a vision and is unable to strike deals with Democrats, Dole said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday”.
Yeah, but who's going to listen to this guy?
