Dole’s got some crust blaming Newt for losing Congress in ‘96.

Dole called Newt “a back-bench bomb thrower” decades ago.

Newt Gingrich is an idea faucet. He is not only well educated but he is creative. All ideas do not have to be plausible but some which seem strange at first usually end up working the best. It’s called, thinking out of the box.

Must really infuriate those who couldn’t keep up.

It’s called a “barf bucket” Bob .... I guess he felt he needed one and after watching you & your cronies projectile vomit back-stabbing lies, I see why.

Dole was the biggest loser the GOP ever gave the nomination to.

He was, and arguably still is, the dimmest (and dumbest) bulb ever produced by the RNC!

I’m guessing the empty bucket was a symbol of the fact that you, Bob Dole and the rest of the RINO GOPs at that time were out of ideas! And to think I actually went to an election rally for that jackass.

Dole said he’s decided to speak out against Gingrich “before it is too late”

If Gingrich didn't pay him to do this, he should have.

Worse than the pre-Palin John McCain?

Running with Dole kind of ruined Jack Kemp's career. He mighta been a contender ...

Bob Dole is a vile Serbophobe who is owned by the Croat lobby, and kisses up to Kosovo Albanian savages.

And he was a BIG help in getting clinton his second term. clinton of course carried out Dole’s entire foreign policy program, especially in Southeastern Europe.

‘Nuf said!!!!

Bob must be suffering from that side effect where he has an erection lasting more than 4 hours.

Dole was a drag on the ‘76 ticket with that RINO Gerald Ford, and 20 years later when it was allegedly “his turn”, we all know how that turned out.

At 88 years of age, Dole needs to just gracefully STFU.

He's up there in age though.

Once he goes, rigor mortis will be the hardest he's been in 20 years.

I think McCain has been suffering from serious mental deterioration, like poor Admiral Stockdale when he had his unfortunate venture into politics.

We really could use candidates who aren’t a zillion years old ...

Shame.

Newt once called Dole the “tax collector for the welfare state.” That left a mark. Dole, like McConnell, Lott and Frist were always trying to undercut the conservatives.

Remember when Dole was in the presidential primaries and he said loudly, when asked why he thought people should vote for him : "IT'S MY TIME."?

He obviously has the same attitude now, thinking it's his time to be 'king maker'.

And, by the way, I have a feeling he never came close to having to 'call his doctor' after being 'up' and 'lasting for more than 6 hours'. >>> Viagra alert <<<

Does Bob Dole still talk about Bob Dole in the third person?

“Gingrich had a new idea every minute and most of them were off the wall,” Dole said in a statement published by National Review.Dole was a senator from 1969 to 1996, overlapping with some of Gingrich’s time as speaker of the House.”

I kinda think the idea of Bob Dole and Bob Doles’ wife helping run up a 16 trillion dollar national debt over a 40 year time span, is an idea that is “off the wall”.

Good call. However, I think anyone under 40 who sees this "news" will be thinking, "Bob Who?"

Dole is speaking for the GOP establishment who picked him because it was his turn.

Probably overdosed on Viagra.

I won’t let a loser decide for me who we should go with.

The empty bucket was symbolic. Ice was delivered every morning to the offices of the representatives ( at quite a cost). Newt made them get their own ice

One of Gingrich's better ideas was to expose Bob Dole as "the tax collector for the welfare state." Which was true. Dole was a pathetic rino establishment organ grinder monkey out there with his little tin cup dancing to the 'rats tune.

He was a war hero but nobody in Beltway DC ever gave a shit about real heroes anyway, so he only fooled himself.,/p>

As for his campaign, your last student council president could have done a better job.

Dole ended his public service doing fritoes commercials with Ann Richards sitting on a couch. (Couch envy of Newt? maybe.) Dole went on to do Viagra commercials as well. Like I said: Pathetic.
