Gee, Harry, the last time I looked at the results of the last election this was about as close as it gets. Mandate form the people? Hardly. Obama barely won the election - based on the popular vote by the skin of his teeth. As for the wishes of the people, I see this country as being pretty divided along political lines. Right now, I'm ready to divide the country in two and let the lib-turds take one side and the conservatives the other. The libs can run their portion the way they see fit. As for me and the conservative side, I'd like to see a return to our founding father's constitutionally written design. This guys a nutcase!
