Retro Quote – Sen. Bob Dole

“If there is anyone who has mistakenly attached themselves to our party in the belief that we’re not open to citizens of every race and religion, then let me remind you, tonight this hall belongs to the party of Lincoln and the exits, which are clearly marked, are for you to walk out of as I stand this ground without compromise.”

“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.”

– Former Sen. Bob Dole, in a discussion with FOX News’ Chris Wallace, about the Republican National Party.  Dole went on to say neither he nor the late Ronald Reagan would stand a chance in the now-extremist GOP.
