.... Zero claims "a mandate" because he "won." (The administrative branch)
But Speaker John Boehner has a much stronger basis for claiming a mandate -- and via him, We, The (Sovereign, American,) People, own, operate and MUST CONTROL SPENDING.
Truth is that WE AMERICANS WILL NEVER PAY the feral gummint's debts and nor will it ever meet its unfunded liabilities.
Another Truth is that by the time the Mid-Terms come around, the Zero Gangsters' criminal treatment of Mr Romney will look like a love fest compared to what that criminal gang will do to the congressional critters then up for re-election. So they are already consigned to History's Dustbin.
