    Holy cr.p! "unprecedented" Filibusters by the Republicans? Wow, you haven't a clue. Democrats had a filibuster proof Congress with 60 votes. You are embarrassing. Where do you get this information?

    Even those who support Obama cannot support you with that statement. That was a joke.

    "Republicans have ratcheted use of the filibuster up to completely unheard of levels. Look at the things that the House (of Representatives) has passed that can't make it through the Senate. The list just keeps growing," said Norman Ornstein, an expert on Congress at the American Enterprise Institute, a center-right policy organization."

    Then you will have no problem showing me which legislation has been filibustered since January 2009?

    I really am worried about people like you, so partisan that you do not understand even what you post. It is an op ed piece of what could happen between now and November, not what has happened. Obama has had nothing filibustered yet that doesn't stop you from posting this kind of cr.p.

    You notice that no one is supporting you with your contention? Get off your knees and show some backbone as well as intellectual honesty for a change.

    Insults noted in bold above.

    "research by Congressional scholar Barbara Sinclair of UCLA on the fact that we are confronting something very new:

    In the 1960s, she finds, “extended-debate-related problems” — threatened or actual filibusters — affected only 8 percent of major legislation. By the 1980s, that had risen to 27 percent. But after Democrats retook control of Congress in 2006 and Republicans found themselves in the minority, it soared to 70 percent."

    Please seek some help, you haven't a clue as to what you are talking about. You said that the Republicans have used the filibuster to prevent Obama legislation from getting passed. Read what you posted because this is embarrassing and your posts have nothing to do with what has happened in the last year.

    Do you realize what you are even posting? Bush was in office in 2006-2008 so they had a President that could veto legislation and thus the Republicans didn't have to filibuster anything. How old are you? Obviously logic and common sense are lost in your own pure hatred of anything Republican

    When you can learn to post without insults, I'll continue our discussions. Until then.....

    Not surprising, run, run, run. You haven't a clue as to what you posted or even are talking about. You made a foolish statement that absolutely false so now you run. I expected nothing less from an Obama supporter.
