    Final Tally Shows Obama First Since

    rw's have said President Obama does not have a mandate. That's wishful thinking on their part.

    Reagan received far more than 51% in both his elections. You're a moron.

    As I recall the left wingers said Bush did not have a mandate in 2004 so why are they now claiming Obama does?

    The bottom line is this was a close race from the popular vote standing and the House and Senate stayed under the control of the party that had them going in what you got was a status quo vote not a mandate for either party.
