Barry does not need a mandate. With a gridlocked Congress , we are now heading to a double dip depression. For some of us , it's time to implement plan B, whatever it's for each individual. Anyone who expects that Barry learns his lesson is living in a fairy land called Fantasia, because all he cares is about pushing his agenda.
There are important lessons to be learned from the results of the 2012 presidential election about the shape of the electorate and how Americans voted. And it might not be what you think.

Overall, many, many fewer Americans turned out to vote. 2008 was a high-water mark for turnout in what may have been an anomaly. President Obama received seven million fewer votes nationwide, but it wasn't a case of the President losing voters to his Republican challenger - Mitt Romney won more than one million fewer votes than John McCain as well.

Some of the much-vaunted demographic advantages...
