Yeah, but Liberals don't care about that. They believe that FDR saved us from the Depression, when in reality he turned the Depression into the Great Depression, and ushered in the welfare state that is destroying our country today.
Most people would agree that many of the dictator-ish moves that Lincoln made, would not qualify him as a top president. Yet their revisionist version of history allows them to believe that he was some great historical figure that saved the union and ended slavery for moral reasons.
