Obama's Electoral Mandate and Where It Leaves Republicans
huffingtonpost.com — Sunday's morning shows featured some astoundingly stupid comments from Republicans who claim to believe that on Election Day voters gave them a "mandate" to continue their attempts to obstruct President Obama's agenda. Apparently some Republican pundits are still living in the same parallel universe that allowed them to convince themselves that by now, President-elect Mitt Romney would be organizing his transition. It really is mind-boggling. Notwithstanding all of the available evidence, they still believe that the American people want them to stand in the way of increases in taxes for the wealthiest 2 percent and to cut Medicare and Social Security benefits for future retirees. Who got a mandate for his policies on Election Day?
