If Mitt had won

And I mean, thinly won.

and I mean, with results in Florida stinking with tomfoolery, shenanigans, and maggots,

and I mean, with videotape of Women, Blacks and Hispanics being outright beaten at the polls,

and I mean, with the Supreme Court having to bend over backwards, with Tony Scalia showing his hand,

If any and all of these had happened,

The GOP would still claim a MANDATE.

And they would SHOVE through WHATEVER THEY WANTED.

only what the GOP is willing to give them.

3. Exactly...

but at the start of every conversation I have heard on tv for the past week,they almost seem to demand that the President give in and the longer it goes the more they will be calling for the Dems to give in to their demands and I say that is when we continue even harder to tell them,HELL NO!

6. The media is doing their damndest..

to find some example in history to convince everyone that the President is ARROGANT, as fox says.

Yesterday,while passing by fox news I caught lou dobbs running down their rules of how a President is suppose to present him or herself.

7. As Bush said after winning election by one state (two times in a row)

"Let me put it to you this way: I earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it. It is my style." and "I've got will of the people"

10. Yep. Shrub won by a hair in 2004 and immediately claimed "political capital"

11. It's always different for the GOP

Exactly, the GOP never has a problem with claiming a mandate on their side. In 2004, after bush had already lied to us about WMDs and Iraq they had NO problem saying HE had a mandate. I love that not only has the GOP lost the presidential election, but now they are openly defending tax cuts for the rich while cutting health care funding and changing the medicare eligibility age. They can no longer claim that that their obsession with cutting taxes for the rich while harming the middle class is a stupid stereotype concocted by the liberal media, because now they themselves are going on t.v. defending that exact agenda. It gets better by the minute...

12. If that scenario materialized,

this nation would have been subjected to the highest definition of arrogant governing. The Supreme Court would have been stacked with one, if not, two tea bagging Scalia ideologues and every rethug rich Mitt supporter would have been given special WH visiting privileges and access to boot. Oh, and that WH garden Michele produced,......forget it!! Queen Ann won't have any such peasantry on her watch.
