True, not a President who says "I won" and believes that 51% of the vote means he has a massive mandate on anything.

Perhaps the election was not a mandate for Obama. (I remember Bush saying "I won political capital, and I intend to use it." after the 2004 election where he barely squeaked past John Kerry.)

However, the election was clearly a rejection of Republican extremism and obstruction.
