    If only Mitt had some murals painted of himself he would have won the POTUS! Who knew it was so easy to rig elections? I must have really underestimated the power of art. Poor Mitt.

    The Koch Brothers just knew they had this one in the Bag!
    "And in their defense, there are two reasons why coming up with an alternative has proven to be difficult," Obama said. "First, it's because the Affordable Care Act pretty much was their plan before I adopted it!"

    ~ Barack Hussein Obama - The 44th President of The United States

    Please. That is just sour grapes at their worst.
    You don't get to vote for the party that supported, and legislated government forced vaginal probes, and then claim to oppose Obama because he represents "increased government control, and power".

    Actually I think the mandate is to the Republican Party, and it is clear; "Look, we're gonna give you guys one more chance to compromise, and work with this guy. So, we're gonna keep him right where he is. Either work with him, or you're really not gonna like what happens in 2014,"

    That is what I think the mandate was.

    Tell me you're not as dumb as you seem.

    No you don't !!


    You believe Obama has a mandate to do what he wishes or you wouldn't haven't post all that BS about voting percentages.


    Your problem was posting a link claiming Bush had a mandate with less of the popular vote than Obama recieved, but the link was charging Bush with a mandate to heal a divided country, because the percentages were so close.


    Obama's "mandate" via your link is to heal a divided country.
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.
