Bush must believe he's received a mandate

Bush received just 51% of the popular vote. A majority (unlike last go-round), but I wouldn't call it a mandate.

Reuters reports:
Republicans, having expanded their control of Congress, were positioned on Wednesday to provide greater help to President Bush to push a stepped-up conservative agenda in his second term... The Republican president has sought to extend tax cuts, promote pro-business policies and appoint anti-abortion judges and he may make another attempt to secure a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriages... "With a bigger majority, we can do even more exciting things," House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, a Texas Republican, told a local television station in his state.
I wonder what exciting things they have in mind. I can only imagine.
