    This is a big change now the hope is over the next decades our elected legislators will govern not obstruct or dictate.

    The filibuster has been used to block even routine agency nominations. 46% of the filibusters since 1965 have happened in the last 5 years. Coincidence? I think not.
    It’s about time the Senate fought fire with fire.

    The socialist, flip-flopping liar of an Obamanation just can’t help but demonstrate himself the incompetent, inconsistent, inconsiderate, inefficient, idiotic fool at every opportunity.

    I see the usual suspects have descended to the occasion.

    Obama had little to do with the rule change to end filibustering executive nominees. The GOP could have avoided this by not abusing the rules.

    I will say that going forward, this puts more responsibility on the President to choose his nominees wisely. Obama & his successors have more risk along with the opportunity.

    Republicans are acting outraged today, yet I doubt they will restore the rule if they regain a majority. I suspect they would have changed the rule long ago if the situation were reversed.
