Does Obama Really Have A Mandate?

Barack Obama won re-election roughly 51%-48% and with 3 million more votes than Mitt Romney received. Guess who else won 51%-48% and with 3 million more votes? Answer: George W. Bush in 2004. And guess what, I don’t  recall Democrats saying that George W. Bushes second term was a mandate. I really don’t. Now, Barack Obama is saying his re-election is a mandate for raising taxes on the “rich”, among other things of course. Time will tell if so-called conservatives in congress give in. I hope they have a little perspective on this one.
