    Specific Mandate versus a General Mandate

    It is an issue specific political mandate that President Obama won with his re-election bid in that more voters want to raise taxes on the wealthy than not. But Obama does not have a general mandate to do whatever he wants where other things are concerned because the popular vote margin win was just too close.

    So the House will give Obama his tax increase on the wealthy and then voters will be shocked when that makes not one iota of difference in regards to their financial situations. What the Left does not grasp is that enough voters believed enough of this leftwing propaganda that they now expect Obama to pull off economic and financial miracles.

    Second term presidents must deliver on the bulk of both their outright and their implied promises and in those two regards Obama again promised voters the moon and stars. Obama is very good at promising everything to everyone but he reeks at delivery on those fanciful promises. But this time -- and because Obama won re-election by the narrowest of popular vote margins -- a general failure to produce means that in 2016 there will be a Republican president in the Oval Office at the end of the year.

    That's established voter psychology . . . and it really is just that simple. Obama has four years to return this nation to general good times and fancy living and heaven help the Democratic Party if he fails to deliver -- again.

    There's absolutely no way the economy is going to revive with this individual in office. Pay attention to what the businesses are saying and doing. They are laying people off and shelving growth plans. What will Obama give them: Higher taxes, more regulations, higher energy prices. Hardly a recipe for growth.

    Yep, it looks that way to me. Obama was raised by socialists and outright Marxists and he is fundamentally hostile to the very concept of capitalism as we have repeatedly seen over these previous four years. Almost inevitably he's going to also muck up the next four years. The Democratic Party is not going to know what hit them once the people who voted for him again . . . begin to truly understand just precisely what they voted for twice.

    Politically speaking things are gradually going to get very ugly indeed for the Left.

    But despite the 55 percent depending on the 45 percent to do everything for them they still expect to live like kinds and queens in mansions and that's pretty much what they signed up for in the back of their minds when they voted for Obama again.

    The mandate was quite specific. It's to raise taxes on someone else. When the poor realize they're paying, too, they'll have a rude awakening.
