Sunday show roundup: Bob Dole gives Republican Party low marks

Former Senate majority leader and presidential nominee Bob Dole offered a bleak assessment of the current Republican Party, saying on "Fox News Sunday" the GOP ought to be “closed for repairs" and expressing doubt today's party would welcome him.

Elsewhere across the Sunday show landscape, the Internal Revenue Service's decision to single out conservative groups for extra scrutiny and the Justice Department's scrutiny of reporters continued to be a major topic of discussion.
