Mandate, You keep using that word...

Today on Morn­ing Joe the magic word is “mandate”

The peo­ple around the table are insist­ing that the pres­i­dent has a man­date for tax increases. Strangely enough the MSM didn’t have that opin­ion after a dif­fer­ent pres­i­dent had a larger mar­gin of vic­tory:

Begin with the facts: A 51 – 48 per­cent vic­tory is not a mandate

That EJ Dionne in 2004 as opposed to Dionne in 2012

Obama will have the strongest argu­ment a politi­cian can offer. Repeat­edly, he asked the vot­ers to set­tle Washington’s squab­bles in his favor. On Tues­day, they did. And so a pres­i­dent who took office four years ago on a wave of emo­tion may now have behind him some­thing more valu­able and durable: a major­ity that thought hard about his stew­ard­ship and decided to let him fin­ish the job he had begun.

Now what peo­ple are for­get­ting is that there was not one elec­tion on Nov 6th, there were 470 elec­tions on the fed­eral level and the result of that elec­tion was a GOP major­ity in the house but this appar­ently doesn’t count as a mandate.

And appar­ently some on the left seem to have for­got­ten just how this works:

Appar­ently now we elect the house based on the national pop­u­lar vote, and if chal­lenged on that fact the left has an inter­est­ing reaction. :

So we are talk­ing “Moral” man­dates? I won­der who just decides what laws are “moral” and which are not, does that now mean we can safely ignore the man­date of Oba­macare? Gun laws? Tax laws?

The bot­tom line is our friends on the left can speak about man­dates till they are blue in the face. The fact is that the GOP hold the house now, and after Jan 3rd will still hold the house, all spend­ing bills must come from the house. What is required now is nerve.

If the house keeps it’s nerve they will be able to make the best pos­si­ble deal for the both the party and the Amer­i­can Peo­ple. And if you must have tax increases, some good sug­ges­tions are out there.

Today on Morning Joe the magic word is “mandate”

The people around the table are insisting that the president has a mandate for tax increases. Strangely enough the MSM didn’t have that opinion after a different president had a larger margin of victory:

Begin with the facts: A 51-48 percent victory is not a mandate

That EJ Dionne in 2004 as opposed to Dionne in 2012

Obama will have the strongest argument a politician can offer. Repeatedly, he asked the voters to settle Washington’s squabbles in his favor. On Tuesday, they did. And so a president who took office four years ago on a wave of emotion may now have behind him something more valuable and durable: a majority that thought hard about his stewardship and decided to let him finish the job he had begun.

Now what people are forgetting is that there was not one election on Nov 6th, there were 470 elections on the federal level and the result of that election was a GOP majority in the house but this apparently doesn’t count as a mandate.

And apparently some on the left seem to have forgotten just how this works:

Apparently now we elect the house based on the national popular vote, and if challenged on that fact the left has an interesting reaction. :

So we are talking “Moral” mandates? I wonder who just decides what laws are “moral” and which are not, does that now mean we can safely ignore the mandate of Obamacare? Gun laws? Tax laws?

The bottom line is our friends on the left can speak about mandates till they are blue in the face. The fact is that the GOP hold the house now, and after Jan 3rd will still hold the house, all spending bills must come from the house. What is required now is nerve.

If the house keeps it’s nerve they will be able to make the best possible deal for the both the party and the American People. And if you must have tax increases, some good suggestions are out there.
