Come on PT, take off your partisan blinders. This is the first time in history that filibusters have been used to stop a vote on judicial nominees that have enough votes to get appointed. The dems are finally out of majority power and they are acting like 3 year old crybabies. Don't try to hide the obvious and water it down by trying to argue for filibusters. This issue is not about filibusters, it is about the use of that legitimate tactic where it had never been used before. Honor and dignity is eluding your party and most Americans will see through it in the next couple of elections.
I just hope you remember all your support of the dems doing things that have never been done when the Republicans decide to whine and complain by doing things that have never been done before. I just wonder if they will decide to filibuster when it has never been done before or if they will leave their posts when they are in the minority and don't like what the majority his doing.
(Yes, I know the shot about leaving like school children was a state action by your state dem leaders)
If you like the IRS, DMV and the Post Office, you will love Obamacare!

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."
