What mandate did Democrats have for their changes?

From the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch:

Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., said the atmosphere was a serious threat to Democrats. "I do think there's a chance that congressional elites mistook their mandate," Bayh said.

"I don't think the American people last year voted for higher taxes, higher deficits and a more intrusive government. But there's a perception that that is what they are getting." . . .

His grasp of the obvious far exceeds that of the "elites" he speaks of.

Would that they listen and act accordingly.

Perception?? PERCEPTION??!! ***!!!***

Maybe Bayh should phrase it: 'Folks caught on very quickly that we've been attempting to stage a coup.'
