Default it is getting Hitleresque

The Senate, by a 52-48 vote just eliminated filibusters by the minority. While some viewed the filibuster as an impediment to progress, it was the last barrier to preserve the rights of the minorities. We are now pre-WW2 Germany.

They've been wildly AGAINST this sort of thing... when the republicans were in power.... but now, it's ok.

I just hope the republicans make sure they maintain this rule until they've undone as much of obama as possible, when they are in power again... if you're going to play dirty then you both end up getting dirty.

Strike one point for mob rule. Like 50 wolves deciding on lunch, and the bunny can no longer delay the vote. Yes I know that analogy was used for 2nd amendment support purposes, but kind of applies here also.

Pure democracy eventually implodes. Thus we were once established as a constitutional republic. Two words that are now demonized, both.

This just drives more division between the party's ... How Harry Reid got re-elected by his state is beyond me .... He is a complete LOON . From what I understand this is his doing .....

Based on O's comments today I think it's obvious he was behind this. When the dems are in the minority it won't matter because they will pack the courts to put the judiciary on their side.

I fear we are doomed for a generation.

Oh yes, absolutely! Nothing like changing a Senate procedure by a majority rule vote to bring about thoughts of mass genocide. No leap of logic there.

He should be. He can't get positions filled in his administration because Republicans are being complete obstructionists. Obama could appoint Genghis Khan to the cabinet and the Republicans would still block him, claiming he's too left wing.

Please give talk radio a rest. There is no such thing. When positions open on courts they are filled. They were just filled for 8 years by Bush. O has a lot of repacking to do if you think that means anything.

Fear not! Republican govenors and legislators across the country now have no Federal oversight in electioneering. The Supreme Court has struck down such measures and states across the country are acting fast to make voting very difficult for those "less desirable types" in our cities.
