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”.
The Kansas Republican said he was disturbed by his party’s obstructionist behavior on Capitol Hill. “It seems almost unreal that we can’t get together on a budget or legislation,” he said.
President Obama also deserves blame for failing to reach out to Republicans in his first term and cultivate better relationships across party lines, Dole said.Are you kidding me? When Dole, whom the GOP establishment anointed the "next in line" to run for President in 1996, he told a meeting of the RNC, "if that's what you want, I'll be another Ronald Reagan." Dole, like most Beltway Establishment RINOs, can't stand the Tea Party and warned fellow losing candidate Mittens Romney away from them.
Asked whether he would be welcomed by the Republican Party today, Dole said, “I doubt it. Reagan wouldn’t have made it, certainly Nixon wouldn’t have made it, because he had ideas. We might have made it, but I doubt it.”
But you can't be a conservative like Reagan when you've made your whole career in Washington as a "deal maker." Which means, RINOs like Dole have no principles to stand on.
Of course, none of these RINOs like Dole, McLame or their fans in the liberal activist media, never lecture the Democrats about moderation, do they?
