Bob Dole, a Mitt Romney supporter and former Republican presidential nominee, issued a scathing statement Thursday blasting Newt Gingrich for being a "one-man-band who rarely took advice." In an open letter to conservatives distributed by Romney's campaign, Dole said he personally took steps to assist the former House speaker pay off a penalty levied by the House Ethics Committee.




Does this even matter? Or does this make you lean towards or against newt even more???

Frankly, I don't think it matters. Bob Dole was an embarrassment when he was the nominee, and now he's more famous for his Viagra ads. I just think no one will really pay attention to him on this. It doesn't make me go up or down about Newt. Pretty sorry bunch all together anyway.

Did Bob Dole ever matter? Does anyone think he is at all relevant today? Newt sucks and he won't be the nominee.

Perhaps his reputation persuades people to veer away from Romney to Newt??? A backfire of sorts perhaps??

Nah! If someone like Reagan were alive and endorsed Romney, that would have an impact because Reagan stood for something, but Dole doesn't much stand for anything. Although I thank him for his service in the Senate for those many years, when I look at him I wonder what he ever did (Maybe he did do a lot. I dunno.) I think it can work both ways, too. For example, if Carter endorsed someone, that could go bad in a hurry because so many people loathe Carter and consider him the Worst President Evah! (Or second worst, depending on your point of view.) In a similar fashion, George W. Bush's endorsement could hurt a Republican today. I just think Dole is kind of a non-entity right now.

The Washington DC elitists are throwing everything but the kitchen sink at Newt.

They want their boy Mitt Romney / Gordon Gekko going up against Obama.

Tuesday is doomsday for the elitists. Stay tuned.
