Has Obama failed at everything? in Issues & Politics Posted December 7, 2010 Moderates lost in 2010. From both parties. The teaparty bagged the moderate GOPers in the primary. Leftists remained in office. See Pelosi, Frank, Reid. The public didn't like the rebranded GOP healthcare plan. I don't either, but its better than allowing the health insurance companies rule my life. It wasn't arrogance, it was ignorance. Ignorance that the American people wanted change and they got republican lite.
