(UPI)   Republican presidential nominee pitches in to help a food bank start a new program to aid low-income elderly people. No, not that one. Nope, not him. No, not the "compassionate conservative" one, either   (upi.com) divider line 34

It goes without saying that it couldn't have been any of the recent ones.

Bob Dole fell on his sword at a time when his Party had, well, not much. He did the honorable thing, and while I didn't agree with some of his policies, he was a good man for the party, and sadly, the party crapped on him at the end, and that leaves me somewhat saddened. Good on him.

I also miss Bob Dole because it meant Norm McDonald would still be employed.

Hello Hubiestubert, you consistently earn you way to my favorites list. Good on you too!

The last Republican Presidential candidate who believed in working with the other party, to actually get the people's work *done*.

I don't expect to *ever* see another one.

Then again, Bob Dole would be seen as just a RINO for his lack of utter inhumanity that the average right winger has these days.

Shame the Senate lost Bob Dole. Also a shame he withdrew from public life after the 96 election as well.

Bob Dole is a socialist by 2012 Republican standards.

not the least bit surprising it's BobDoleBobDole

"Seniors in rural Kansas have limited access to hunger relief associations," Dole said in a written statement. "Those living in extreme poverty have no means to stock their kitchen shelves."

You gotta keep those old racists alive long enough to get them to vote against their best interests.

Somebody ate Bob Dole's peanut butter.

Hell, John Birch was a socialist by those standards.

Bob Dole was a respectable Republican until Bob Dole jumped on the Swift Boat band wagon and questioned John Kerry's military record. That was the point when Bob Dole went from being a decent GOP member that I disagreed with on policy issues to a run of the mill GOP scumbag.
 
2012-09-17 10:37:31 AM  
That's SOCIALISM!!! Where is the Faux News outrage?

I kinda started liking Bob Dole when he appeared on Letterman. He stopped spewing out the GOP talking points and just acted like a human being with a sense of humor. Linky

Agreed. And he's following up his "last ethical Republican" gig with being a lobbyist, like every other former politician. So's his wife.

Bob Dole = Socialist RINO Traitor

I liked Bob Dole. I didn't agree with most of his policies, but I feel like he's got integrity and cares about other people, which places him far above what the Republican Party offers up in 2012.

Just throw a voter ID in each box and kill two birds with one stone.

Wow man. I was sure Bob Dole was dead.

Bob Dole has always been an ardent supporter of food stamps and even worked hand in hand with George McGovern to lower the eligibility levels for them, earning both the 2008 World Food Prize.

Imagine...really, just TRY to imagine...Mitch McConnell or any other "leader" of the modern Republican party working with one of the most liberal members of the Democratic party on...well...anything, not to mention a OMGSOSHULIZM gubmint program for the...*spit*...poor.

We used to have sane representation that understood that campaign were partisan and governing was compromise.

So if they could get the Kansas HOuse Speaker to sign on, would the monthly supplies be known as the O'Neil n Bob Box?

Dole and McGovern were both WWII veterans, and I think that bond was a large part of what allowed the guys from that generation to work together. It's unfortunate that it takes something like that to foster cooperation, but it's even more unfortunate that we no longer have enough of these guys serving in Congress to see any cooperation.

Anyway Dole could be a prick politically but I think at his core he was a good person who understood the role government can play in helping the less fortunate, he's probably the last GOP presidential nominee you can say that about.

His 1996 running mate Jack Kemp passed away, I think that's why people assume that.
