  •  Politico is absolute shit, we all know that, but (0+ / 0-)

    what always kills me is talking about a mandate PERIOD.

    Nobody, not Barack, not Romney, not Joe Blow, not Susie Q. Public, has a mandate. They only have the presidency
    temporarily subject to their performance and the sizing up of their particular opposition the next time.

    All they have is really a four-year probation, NOT a mandate.

    Please, NOBODY here say he has a "mandate" when Barack wins. It's not fucking true.
