I replied, If he was doing such a bad job, why didn't the majority of people vote him out of office two months ago? You're still welcome to try to answer that question if you can.

Second, a majority of the people who voted certainly did vote for him. To be exact, he got 51.03% of the popular vote and 61.7% of the Electoral College. Perhaps in your world - where you can heal sick people, the Earth is 6,000 years old, and a loving God murdered all of humanity (save the lucky few on the Arc) - 51.03% isn't a majority. But, to the rest of us, 51.03% is a majority.
Another absurdity of Sappy's response is that she blathers on about: "Instead, the current administration is doing a terrible job and is NOT representing the MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE! And that's the Truth!"

How absurd! A perfect example is the tax philosophy leading to the Fiscal Cliff resolution. A CLEAR majority of the people back slightly higher rates (1998 levels, hardly onerous) for those making over $250K. The WH backed the will of the people while Boehner and the GOP keep toting the water of the rich. There is no logical argument that can be made for this position.

Suprised, no. But, what can I say Max, I'm an optimist. When I engage her - which is usually about 1 x per year - I always hope that maybe her light bulb has been turned on and she's capable of rational discussion. (I sort of feel like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football when Lucy pulls it away.) Oh well, I'll try again in 2014.
