Senate Republicans publicly repudiate Bob Dole

By Bill Press - 12/05/12 08:01 AM ET

... Just look what they did to Bob Dole yesterday ...

As one who triumphed over his own war injuries, Bob Dole has long championed the rights of the disabled. Yesterday, fresh out of Walter Reed Hospital, he came to the Senate in his wheelchair to seek the support of his fellow Republicans for the United Nations Disabilities Treaty ó which would not make any changes to American law, but merely encourage other nations to grant disabled persons the same opportunities they enjoy here in the United States.

One by one, his Republican colleagues walked up to shake his hand ó and then stabbed him in the back.
