Mitch McConnell filibusters himselfRegister Today!
- by MunoRN Dec 7, '12Mitch McConnell proposed an amendment for no other reason than to try and embarrass Democrats, Reid then offered to bring it to a vote as a stand-alone bill at which point Mitch McConnell filibustered his own bill. At what point do we say things have gone horribly wrong?

he made his agenda perfectly clear 4 years ago and should be removed as it is not in step with the agenda of the nation...

- Dec 9, '12 by MunoRNQuote from tntrnI give Breitbart.com credit for their out-of-context editing skills, but not so much on accuracy. In 2005 Senate Republicans pushed to remove the filibuster altogether on judicial nominees. Reid has not proposed to do away with the filibuster, only to make senators actually filibuster if they are going to filibuster. The problem Republicans have with that is that they simply filibuster too much to put in the time required to actually do what's required of a filibuster, and that's the big difference between the filibuster of 2005 and 2012, it's essentially been reinvented by Republicans, in graph form: http://healthcaretrends.files.wordpr...-gridlock1.jpgAnd then there is H.Reid, who on the topic of Senate rules, completely contradicts himself in this series of comparisons from 2005 and the present.
