    When has a democrat ever filibustered legislation supported by Obama?  

    The example must be of a true hold/filibuster, where a group of progressives totally blocks the legislation.  Making angry comments and then voting for the legislation doesn't count.

      Filibuster? I understand its for the minority....Dems have had a majority in the Sen since '06...before PBO

    •  what would you have had them filibuster? (0+ / 0-)

      Remember my point is this is an issue that easily crosses party lines on the street and that it's a chance for national leadership.

      Would you have wanted a Democrat to filibuster HCR out of nowhere when the Republicans were already on the case?

      If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.
