At Our Best

[O]urs is a country worthy of service, as many Republican presidents and Democratic presidents have shown over the years.  We're not perfect, but at our best, we face head on the good, the bad, the truth of who we are.  We look in the mirror and ultimately never pretend we're something we're not.  That's what great nations do.

We get up.  We carry on.  We never bow.  We never bend.  We speak of possibilities, not carnage.  We're not weighed down by grievances.  We don't foster fear.  We don't walk around as victims.  We take charge of our destiny.  We get our job done with the help of the people we find in America, who find their place in a changing world, and dream and build a future that not only they but all people deserve a shot at.

We don't believe, none of you believe America is failing.  We know America is winning.  That's American patriotism.  It's not winning because of Joe Biden.  It's winning.

-- President Joe Biden, speaking at a campaign event at Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, PA (5 January 2024)
