Today’s Republican Party Could Learn a Thing or Two from Bob Dole

At the end of the day, a democracy needs compromise to survive. We don’t need to be in complete agreement 100% of the time, but we cannot be at each other’s throats all day.

Last week, Bob Dole, the late former Senator, and Presidential Candidate was remembered in a ceremony at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. Among the speakers was President Biden.

Though Senator Dole and President Biden were on different ends of the political spectrum, they understood that they needed to find some sort of common ground to do their jobs. They also knew the value of real friendship outside of the office. Today’s Republican party could learn a thing or two from this relationship. Instead of being confrontational and refusing the see the other side, it wouldn’t hurt if they put down their literal armor and attempted to come to the table.

Earlier this week, newscaster Brian Williams announced his retirement. Speaking directly to his viewers, he implored his audience to put aside their differences and find a way to come together.

RIP Senator. Your contribution to this nation will never be forgotten.

  1. I don’t quite get all this hoopla about Brian Williams going away. He should’ve been gone after he told tall tales about his time in the Iraq. He lied to the public from his platform as a most trusted NBC anchor person back in 2015. He should’ve been fired on the spot with no reprieve. I lost most the respect I had for NBC with their lack of accountability with Williams’ deceptions.

  2. May we be like The Beatles and “Come Together.”. It might keep us all human and kind. Red and Blue mix together to a lovely shade of purple. Peace, friends, and love. Please don’t forget!
