Which Obama defeat are you referencing. There were a LOT of those after the Republicans took over the congress. They stopped the majority of legislation from Obama just as they said they would do when he got elected.

I am really not sure how this has a whole lot to do with Obama, however. What it really demonstrated was that the Republicans have a really great plan of doing nothing which has come to full fruit with the Republican Senate.

In any case I am certainly happy that you are pleased with the Republican lack of any legislation which might help the poor, young, and needy. Always an inspiration!
