It’s interesting how the public was repeatedly told that George Bush had a mandate to govern as he saw fit, despite losing the popular vote in 2000 and barely scraping by in the 2004 election, but there is an adamant refusal to acknowledge any mandate conveyed by the American people to Barack Obama in last November’s vote.
