After taking his turn going after Joe Scarborough and his juvenile sneering at Nate Silver and that damned liberal math of his, predicting a big win for President Obama and being exactly right again, The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur reminded us of how the media treated George W. Bush and his "mandate" after the slimmest of wins back in 2004.

As Cenk rightfully pointed out, if Bush supposedly had a mandate back then, President Obama has a giant mandate now, and he discussed the fact, as John Amato did here, that America also elected a progressive agenda this Tuesday.

Can you help us out?
