Saw this question posted on another site. If you were going to give a football score to Obama and the Democrats versus the Republicans in the first two years, how would you score it? I scored it like this: Obama 52, Republicans 37 The Republicans failed on health care, though won some changes: 7-3 Obama. The Republicans lost on the stimulus bill big time: 14-0 Obama. The Republicans lost on DADT: 7-0 Obama. The Republicans won on Gitmo: 0-7 Republicans. Obama edged the Republicans on appointments: 7-3 Republicans The Republicans lost on the Matthew Shepherd Act, Stem Cell Research, Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act: 7-0 Obama The Republicans and Obama rather tied on the START treaty: 3-3 The Republicans lost on various odds and ends, such as cash for clunkers, student loans, public service: 7-0 The Republicans won on the Dream Act: 0-7 Republicans The Republicans overall won the public relations battle and the House and State houses: 0-14 Republicans That said, obviously the game isn't over yet.
