When asked about the current Republican Party, reading in between the lines, the Tea Party/conservative wing of the party,
Bob Dole said,
“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.”
When asked whether he or Ronald Reagan could make it in today’s Republican Party, Dole responded, I doubt it. And I — Reagan wouldn’t have made it. Certainly Nixon couldn’t have made it, because he had ideas and, we might have made it, but I doubt it. I mean –
A couple of observations–RINOS (Republicans in name only) still are the major force in the legislative body Mr. Dole oversaw: McCain, Graham, Hatch etc., the short list. So yes, Dole (the man who expanded the food stamp program), Reagan or Nixon could still make it in 2013.
Yes, I saw that interview. They have their own infighting with the Teapartyers. Reince Priebus should be replaced.
But, I'm a Democrat, so I say: Thanks Teaparty.
Hillary Clinton, the first female President!

I'm sure it's a coincidence, as she says, but her breaks seem to occur right when I come online. LOL

I really cut down on posts from her and GaltBraina when I'm here.

When I leave, yo can't shut either of them up.

Purely coincidental.

Everyone knows it was all Republiclown politics. That's why he was re-elected and Gingrinch was forced to resign his Speakership and witch hunts.
The most popular ex-President alive.

Bush isn't today's newspaper you moron, he's last year's newspaper, a decade ago you idiot!

Hell George Bush is no where as stupid as a "I know nothing" obama.... LMFAO...

AND you're still in love with GW Bush while the country slides into an abyss and hell. LMFAO...

When all else fails... nuculur gets into his fetal position, breast feeds on George Bush and then proceeds to suck Dick Cheney...

Smoking cigarettes is hereditary??
Type II Diabetes is generally caused by lifestyle choices.
Proven by lap band type surgery, which eliminates diabetes in most patients who had been diabetic. Came as a big surprise to doctors.
Why would anyone with a family history of chronic diseases further muddy the waters by smoking, eating junk food, etc??
Just sayin..........
My doc, an older, wizened gentleman, firmly believes, a LOT of that stuff IS in the genetic environment.(and he told me so just a few days ago)

Why else would free-loading libuhrulTicss waste OTHER peoples tax dollars, gambling, drinking, and living way beyond the means of their fwee givverment checks otherwise?

Just saying.

You are a fool. The second Dole says something against Obama you will be like trashing him all over the place for being old.
That's true. But it doesn't have anything to do with what he said.

He sees the problems in his own party, that's far different from criticizing a president of the other party.

You nitwits should pay more attention, but you won't. And you will lose court cases and elections because of your stupidity.

Like AZ immigration law, largely struck down. And with Arpaio found guilty of racial profile in Federal Court.

You're becoming a marginal party, filled with older white folks. Even your young have abandoned you.

Dole sees the demographic problems Republiclowns face. If they don't allow immigration reform and gay rights, they are in big trouble for 2014 and 2016.

I like to watch them squirm.

He should've never been in court to commit perjury in the first place. He got head. Even Monica admitted that that's all it was so he didn't commit perjury! I get my tally whacked often, doesn't make me a bad guy. How is it the man accusing was having an affair? Yet he's still a senator!3049

You get more moronic by the hour. First you eat the Paul Rand nonsense and try to accuse Obama for the expanded codes.
But it was Bush who expanded the codes tremendously. Makes it easier to track different illnesses or injuries. DUH
So you run away from your stupidity and try to tell me what the codes are for, when you said they weren't even necessary.
You're an idiot.
No...the codes are about billing. Stupid libturd.
