Orly? Not to quote verbatim from the West Wing, but liberals ended slavery in this country, progressives gave us a elected US Senate, liberals built Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, The Clean Air Act, The Clean Water Act, The Affordable Care Act.

Also, I remember learning in AP US History something about a Vietnam war we fared pretty poorly in. Idk, crazy idea, but maybe, just maybe, Obama didn’t completely ruin America’s 200+ year winning streak.
