As C. Edmund Wright sees it, when it comes to the heart of the struggle against Washington-centrism and socialized healthcare, Bob and Elizabeth Dole are typically clueless, typically elitist, and typically forshadowers of defeat for the Republican Party.
Wright comments at American Spectator:
With victory in the health care debate and the 2010 midterms in sight and the disaster of John McCain's hands-across-the-aisle campaign still visible in the rear view mirror, the last thing conservatives and the GOP need is for Bob Dole to re-emerge and push to "get a bill signed."
But last week Dole, who has been on the government dole since Ike was planning D-Day, felt the need to continue to legislate. Actually, his unsolicited health care foray informs us as to what is killing the Republican Party -- even as the Democrats are doing all they can to implode in front of Saturday Night Live, Copenhagen and the world.
