don't have enough votes to pass a bill? that's ok, all you have to do is abuse the filibuster rule & make believe you're in session when you're really on vacation, thereby peventing Recess appointment and keeping an entire federal agency from functioning.
real patriotic stuff.
While we are on the point, it was Harry Reid legitimized the concept of filibustering judicial nominees with Estrada in 2003. The lame hypocrit Democrats start all this stuff, and then when it is turned on them, they squeal like stuck pigs. Or just plain violate the Constitution.
Give up while your behind.
This is priceless, both parties complain about the filibuster and then refuse to allow for up or down votes. Its like a political carousel.
My family is more important than my party.
