“President Obama did something few campaigns have done; he campaigned on higher taxes for the wealthy. The president has a mandate for the American people for tax fairness.”

I know the election is over and Mitt Romney lost – sad but true. That said, I’m getting frustrated listening to people on the right wring their hands over the GOP message or Obama’s brilliant marketing machine.
As we’ve witnessed since the night of the election, Obama loves to tout his victory as proof that the “overwhelming majority of Americans,” agree with him. This simply isn’t true.
As I wrote in my post-election piece “Obama Victory: Revenge of The Needy and The Greedy”, Obama won by taking 90% of the vote in 11 US cities filled with poor people living on the dole and democrat public sector union workers – both of whom were voting to “feather their own bed.”
I thought it might be “therapeutic” to take a minute and look at these 16 major voting blocks that overwhelmingly voted for Mitt Romney and not Obama (click on each block see the source).
