Dems On Filibustering Appointees: “What Come Around Goes Around”

Me thinks that Democrats are increasingly concerned about losing the Senate
(The Politico)

The White House and Senate Democrats are issuing a blunt warning to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans: You live by the filibuster, you’ll die by the filibuster.

Furious at Republicans for blocking votes on an appeals court nominee and the head of a new consumer watchdog agency, Democratic saber-rattling is intensifying, with fresh warnings that McConnell —or any new Republican administration —will face major repercussions if they come into power in 2013.
“The standard in the Senate is now being lowered so much so that opposition parties in the future will thwart the will of any administration,” said Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.).

“There’s an old saying, ‘What goes around, comes around,’” said Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).

Yeah, it does, Babs. Democrats blocked Bush appointees time and time again. Now Republicans are blocking extreme far left Obama appointees. Payback’s a bitch, eh?

    Hopefully by the time there is a Republican president doing the nominating Babs will be in heavy medication therapy.

    absolutely dysfunctional government….no one willing to get along and no one in either parties base willing to let the parties get along…….

    this looks so much like 1850 America leading up to the civil war….The republicans even nominated the one man that the south threatened would lead them to leave the union……..the country then voted him into office.

    Base vs base….Idealogy vs idealogy……….its got to stop…but it wont……

    Perry has the right idea which is an idea Ive pushed for a long time….part time government……….they are pointless now……..

    their relevance is questionable.

      Perhaps it’s simply about time.
