61. Exactly

Check out 6 years of Bush/Cheney vs. 6 years of Obama/Biden. Bush had 6 years (give or take a few months) of a GOP-controlled Congress that was extremely loyal to him. Obama had 2 years of a Democratic-controlled Congress consisting of Blue Dogs- some of whom were almost as adversarial towards him as some of the Republicans- to say nothing of the unprecedented GOP obstructionism in the Senate where a majority of votes required is now 60 instead of 51. He got some stuff done during that time period and one would hope/think that he would've gotten more stuff done had Democrats continued to retain control of Congress but, of course, party control has been split between the House and Senate since then and the most he's been able to accomplish, really, is "damage control".
