Filibuster is a legit procedure in Congress. Like it or not, disagree with it or not, it exists for a reason.

Reid's statement is a lie. It's completely worthy of being "attacked".

Lying is certainly standard procedure for politicians of all stripes. It's not a Dem libtard thing or a Repub conserwad thing. But when I see it, I'm gonna call it what it is.

You're welcome to suck his cvck all you want.

They couldn't beat Obama last year, no way in hell they'll beat Clinton in '16.

And that reason is to obstruct every nomination the president makes.

Ignore the incompetence of the nominee, stand by the party line no matter what

“The one leverage tool that the minority party in the Senate has right now is confirmations,” said Joseph Engelhard of Capital Alpha Partners, a research firm that analyzes Washington for corporate clients.

“This isn’t about any particular appointee — Ben Franklin could come back to life and they would oppose him,” said Mr. Engelhard, a former Republican aide on the House Financial Services Committee.
Every.

Look at how quickly his stance on Iran and Israel changed.
I don't know if I'm confusing you with someone else, but I thought you used to be a lot more moderate in your views.

I'm still very moderate. I just think Hagel's a joke. Watching his confirmation hearing was painful.

And his stances on items like Iran and Israel made drastic changes as soon as he was tapped for SecDef. Had he stood by his views, whether I agree with him or not, you could at least day he's a man of conviction. But no, he spent the weeks leading up to his hearing back peddling, and then his hearing trying to justify himself.
