Bob Dole: Reagan, Nixon Could Not Survive in Today's GOP

Chris Wallace asked Bob Dole some questions on the growing extremism of the Republican-Tea Party over the weekend.

Bob Dole's response confirm swhat is obvious about the Scott Walker-Paul Ryan brand of craziness that now pervades the Republican Party.

Steve Benen has the story.

WALLACE: You describe the GOP of your generation as Eisenhower Republicans, moderate Republicans. Could people like Bob Dole, even Ronald Reagan, could you make it in today's Republican Party?

DOLE: I doubt it. And I -- Reagan wouldn't have made it. Certainly Nixon couldn't have made it, because he had ideas and, we might have made it, but I doubt it.
