Magic Mandate

I paid attention during the 2010 campaign. While there was some talk about the federal deficit and debt, the theme of the campaign was about the economy and jobs. Both Republicans and Democrats talked about providing jobs to a degree that made it difficult to differentiate between them. A very small handful of Tea Party candidates eschewed that theme and ran on the "keep government's hands off of my Medicare" platform, and won.

And now Republicans say that the election was "a clear mandate to cut spending and balance the budget." What? Clear to whom?
