re: #178 Killgore Trout

I think he had a great line (written for him) and used it but I do think he’s fairly serious about it. He is the president and there’s a lot of stuff to do. There’s no need to waste his time dealing with people who aren’t going to help anyways. We all deal with this in daily life. There are some people that just aren’t worth trying to deal with. The effort vs return ratio doesn’t make it worthwhile.

I recall that Bush did not have a mandate, since only 51% voted for him. Why should Obama have a mandate with only a 52% vote. This seems pretty much a 50/50 type event. He is not just the president of those who agree with him, he is the president of the entire USA.
