I think I heard he is 87. Prayers for his comfort, for healing, and for many blessings, in Christ’s Holy Name amen.

He’s 87. Get well soon, Mr. Dole!

It’s kind of ironic that he’s being admitted into Walter Reed, when he was appointed co-chair of a commission in 2007 to look into problems there....

I always liked Mr. Dole just, not as President.

Godspeed Sen. Dole.

Great WWII vet and anti-communist.

A bit RINOish at times and a disconcerting Lebron James-like habit of referring to himself in the third person.

Best wishes, Bob.

The 87-year-old Russell native spent 10 months at Walter Reed last year after suffering pneumonia three times following knee surgery in February. He left the facility in mid-November.

I didn't know that he had gone home.

Boy, I hate to start this reply out in a negative, but I never wanted either Bob Dole or John McCain as my president.

That said, I CANNOT BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the hate these two men received from the left.

Bob Dole lost the use of his arm in WWII, and John McCain was tortured for years in Vietnam and to this day cannot button his shirt or tie his tie.

Yet the left desires to have us embrace the: ‘disabled’ all the while working to destroy these valiant heroes.

God speed to you, Bob Dole, we pray for your quick recovery - you are a fine man.

Best to the former Senators Dole.

NC needs to get Hagan out in 2014.

I still can't believe he was the nominee in '96. I hope the GOP make it harder for Obama to win a second term.

Pretty insensitive,don’t you think?

Regardless of what we may think about how Dole became a RINO, the man is a WWII hero and probably close to the end of his days. How about offering a prayer for him.

Gee. What are his QALY numbers for an admission? I mean why are we wasting resources on an 87 year old?

Oh! That’s right . He is more special than your parents and mine. I wonder if his doctor brought up death counseling? After all the rest of us are going to see this stuff.

Wait till the doctor comes to tell you that granny doesn’t meet “admission criteria”. I wonder if the Doles will be treated the same as you or me.
