  •  oh if only we had (5+ / 0-)

    majority control of the senate we could kill the filibuster!

    But at least it helped the dems stop bush's right wing SC nominees, eh?

    At least it stopped the odious Patriot Act eh?

    At least it stopped the Iraqi debacle, eh?

    At least it stopped retroactive immunity for telecomms, eh?

    At least it stopped Free Trade Job Outsourcing, eh?

    Oh wait.  It did none of those things, did it?

    But it sure as hell stopped the Public Option, didn't it?

    If I didn't know better, I'd think this were a Kabuki Play.

    The excuses for Obama's behavior have long since passed the point of predictability neccessary to qualify as an absurd production of Kabuki Theater.

      Then inaction would be laid at his feet.

      The "painless" filibuster is anything but.  With Republicans' majority in the House, it gives them control of both the house and Senate.  Imagine if they carry through to change the way electoral votes are allocated in swing states and a Republican is elected in 2016.  Total control of the Federal government from a minority of votes.

      Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.
