  •  Reid did accept this hurdle (9+ / 0-)

    at the start of the current Congress.

    before this current Congress, the minority party had never filibustered more than a hundred times in a single year.  we knew the Rs were obstructionist but taking things to this ridiculous extreme just because of a black president they were miffed at losing the White House took people by surprise.

    maybe we were naive, but it is hard to anticipate something that has never happened before.
