From Midwest Voices:
"This is one of the most important measures members of Congress will vote on in their lifetimes," the former Republican Senate majority leader and presidential candidate told an audience in Kansas City today. "If we don't do it this year I don't know when we're gonna do it.
Given the current plans on the table, I have an answer for Bob Dole; “when hell freezes over”.
What are Dole’s reasons for supporting this crap sandwich?
Dole, to his credit, is having none of it. "I want this to pass," he said. "I don't agree with everything Obama is presenting, but we've got to do something."
He added: "I don't want the Republicans putting up a 'no' sign and saying, 'we're not open for business.'"
So in other words, just pass the damn thing so that Republicans can look like they are “doing something”. I guess Dole considers opposing legislation that erodes our freedom further and adds to our sinfully high debt as doing nothing.
I am actually embarrassed at this point to admit that I voted for this fool. We really must make an all out effort not to vote for ninnies like Dole in 2010 and beyond. Republicans like Dole are the reason this nation keeps drifting leftwards towards socialism. These Republicans would not know a conservative principle if you wrote one on their foreheads and stood them in front of a mirror.
