Probably the biggest reason the GOP is in a downward spiral...
Too many of their members are morons who will happily revise American history in order to fit their narrow ideology.
Here's Rep. Steve Austria (R-OH) commenting on the stimulus plan:
"When (President Franklin) Roosevelt did this, he put our country into a Great Depression," Austria said. "He tried to borrow and spend, he tried to use the Keynesian approach, and our country ended up in a Great Depression. That's just history."So, FDR caused the Great Depression...which began four years before he became President.
With minds like that in it's ranks, the Republican party is in great shape for the future!
UPDATE: In true dipshit form, Rep. Austria is trying to claim he didn't say that FDR caused the Great Depression, even though that's exactly what he said...
