[font size=5]Bob Dole Slams Republicans On Fox News
“Reagan couldn’t have made it.”[/font]

Former Republican Senate Majority Leader and 1996 GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole slammed the Republican Party on Fox News Sunday this week. Dole said the current party wouldn’t welcome himself, Reagan, or Nixon and should go over their party policy.

“I think they ought to put a sign on the national committee doors that says ‘closed for repairs’ until New Year’s Day next year and spend that time going over ideas and positive agendas,” Dole said when asked about the state of today’s Republicans.

Dole also said he doubted he could make it in today’s party.

“I doubt it,” Dole said. “Reagan couldn’t have made it. Certainly Nixon could not have made it because he had ideas. We might have made it, but I doubt it.”

1. It's tough to say with Reagan.

On the one hand, Bob Dole might have a point since he did raise taxes 11 times (and tax hikes is now considered a sin in today's GOP). But on the other hand, this was also the same guy who not only popularized trickle-down and once voiced his opposition to socialism, but he was also hawkish and he coined the Welfare Queen myth.
