As Senate vet Dole celebrates 90th birthday, he laments tone in Washington

Washington (CNN) - Robert Dole knew his share of Washington fights - as the Republican vice presidential and presidential nominee and as both Senate majority and minority leader.

But as he celebrates his 90th birthday on Monday, he told CNN he believes the tone in Washington is much more bitter - and that is not helping the country.

    Bitter is a polite way of putting. For some, bitter is an understatement. Those would be the ones who blame Pres. Obama for any and everything.

    The Americans were initially greeted as liberators. But, they were also immediately asked to leave, which they didn't do. The Iraqis initially didn't want US help in setting up a new government. The Bush administration wanted to establish a government that would obey US government wishes, wants, and demands. The Iraqis wanted independence, not subservience.
