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

    An Obama mandate? The pundits don't agree, with themselves

    and you? Do you agree with yourself?

    And Now, A Word From Charles "laugh2:

    “I think one thing he might do if it's not Simpson-Bowles would be to offer the Treasury to Romney. I'm sure he would probably turn it down but it would be the ultimate gesture. I don't think it will happen. I agree John Kerry will probably end up at secretary of State. But I must say that my sources in the Obama White House have been rather quiet since January 2009.”

    -- Charles Krauthammer on “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

    You seem to be having a great conversation with yourself, wouldn't want to butt in.

    The people have mandated the Republicans to control the checkbook once again.

    Charles Krauthammer:

    When a President runs for reelection and gets "50% of the vote" It's “unusual in our time.... And [when] you expand your representation in the House and the Senate, in an election where the president ran on the record and on the stuff he says he's going to do in the future, you've got a mandate.” - Charles Krauthammer

    “I think he's got a mandate. And what is a mandate? A mandate is just that you won by talking about certain issues, and you will pursue them afterward.” Fed Barnes FOX News

    The '10 election was a clear mandate by the American people to put a check on Obama's radicalism.

    And that team was re-elected by the America people.


    Hoping that helps you understand why Obama must do as he is told.

    Somebody forgot to tell the Tea Party oriented Republicans that they must roll over for Obama.


    LOL
