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."
