I think that you could say this about a lot of liberal tenets: Women’s rights, racial equality, gay marriage, legalization of marijuana, climate change, green energy, mass transit, bicycles as a means of transportation, progressive income taxes, universal health care and education, and on and on.

Most of their decisions have been train wrecks: cutting taxes on the wealthiest Americans, cutting education budgets, our failed wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as their staunch opposition to most of the things I listed as liberal triumphs.
