2. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so sick of Repubs whining about him not having a mandate. He wasn't even supposed to win in this economic climate no other president has since Roosevelt.

5. Obama has a mandate

I just hope he doesn't give in before even negotiating. I want him to be a tougher and smarter negotiator when dealing with congress. America is starting to move to the left and will continue to do rapidly as younger voters take control. i also want him to campaign for his agenda with the American public if the republicans don't cooperate, and exposes them to voters.

6. Which hacks were pushing that stupid meme that Rmoney would win the popular vote

It's hilarious hearing them say that the ReTHUGs got it wrong. Many of them not only got it wrong but also pushed the ReTHUG talking points.

8. This is what the worst president in living memory said after the 2004 election

Bush claims mandate, sets 2nd-term goals / 'I earned capital in this campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it'

November 5, 2004

President Bush speaks to reporters at his first news conference following his re-election at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building Thursday, Nov. 4, 2004 in Washington.


"I earned capital in this campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it," Bush told reporters. "It is my style."

As he had done in his victory speech Wednesday, Bush spoke of building a bipartisan consensus and reaching out to the 48 percent of Americans who voted against him. Yet he made plain that he had no intention of moderating his agenda to reach that goal.

"When you win, there is ... a feeling that the people have spoken and embraced your point of view," Bush said. "And that's what I intend to tell Congress, that I made it clear what I intend to do as the president; now let's work."

There have been few signs, beyond a few token words, of conciliation from either side in the immediate aftermath of the contentious 2004 election. Bush's victory was large enough for Republicans to assert they had a majority on their side, yet too small for Democrats to feel intimidated about standing in their way.

"He's not reaching out; he's just saying if you agree with us, you can come along for the journey," said Rep. George Miller, D-Martinez. "And I suspect that is how it's going to play out in the second term."

19. the 47.9 figure is when obama was at 61,678,367 and he is over 62 million so

mitt most likely has dropped from 47.9 to 47.5

most websites have not updated to these current figures
