You guys cheerlead Republicans in Congress as "doing their job" when they block legislation proposed by Obama or Democrats at large. They've made a habit of such obstructionism and it's a point of pride for GOP leadership. Mitch McConnell proudly (and stupidly) admitted it.

The first two years of his term, Obama controlled the Congress.

Plenty of time (two years of control) to

fix the economy
propose a Foreign Policy
create a Energy Policy based on the US natural Resources
get banks to lend to help the housing crises
Fix the educational system
Come up with a cost effective healthcare system
Get out of Afganastan
Establish a solid trade arrangement with S America

But ... with 100% in his favor ....

He did squat!
