Speaking of mandates, Bush won the 2004 race with 3.6 million more votes than Kerry.<quoted text>
It was important to educate dem on the meaning of a mandate when he was obviously a bit confused.
Yes, Obama won. But it was a lot closer than most of you want to admit. That is not a mandate. In fact, it only proves the country is still very much divided and it is Obama's responsibility and duty to bring us together by representing all of us - not just the selected few who put him over the top.
And it's certainly not a mandate for him to become an even more narcissitic bully.
Obama recieved 5 million more votes than Rmoney.
Put another way,Obama recieved 5 million more votes in 2012 than Bush had in 2004!!
65 Million for Obama's mandate.
59.2 million for Bush's mandate.
Kerry recieved 55.7 million votes. The margin for Bush was 3.6 million votes.
Yet Bush claimed a mandate.
"CNN host Tucker Carlson, co-host of CNN's Crossfire: "[N]obody has done it since 1988. The president wins reelection with a majority of the vote. It is a mandate. What will he do with it now?[CNN, Crossfire, 11/3/04]"
Funny how your side measures mandates!!
Obama beat Rmoney by 5 million votes, recieved more votes than Bush vs Kerry.
If Bush had a mandate, as he claimed, Obama has a double mandate!!
You're not very good at this, ya know.
You look stupid when you claim Obama didn't win a mandate.
