|Grandfather figure and Party Killer
During his second term in office a lot of shit went down. There was this little thing called the Iran-Contra Affair in which the United States sold weapons to it's enemies in order for those enemies to get them in the hands of the Contra Rebels in Central America. Oops, not a good thing. If I remember correctly, he was the first sitting president forced to testify before Congress because of it. And the Republicans fell into a frenzy of hate which still rankles them to this day. They believed his amazing re-election gave them free reign to to what ever they wanted. They were terribly wrong. Instead of trying to comprehend this, they went to the dark side. Every president they have gotten elected since then has lived down to the standards they, themselves, have set in their hearts. By failing to grasp the true nature of that election they have done themselves in, Ronald Reagan is truly killing the GOP. Slowly, but surely, he is wiping them out.
