Now Who Had a Mandate to Govern?
Some Democrats and many in the press seem to be forgetting who had the mandate to govern after the 2010 General Election in Tennessee
Tennessee Democrats, liberals, and those who are generally opposed to conservative governance are going bananas over a Vanderbilt University poll which supposedly shows that support for the General Assembly now stands at 45.8%, down from 65.6% in January. The Democrats are acting as though this somehow signals the beginning of the end for the Republican majority, but they all need to be reminded that the General Election is next year, not this year. Further, both Republicans and Democrats, as well as the Democrats' passive allies in the mainstream media, would do well to remember that precisely none of what has occurred since January is a surprise.
