Well if the Republicans win the White House in 2012 and have fewer than 60 seats in the Senate you’ll see the Democrats throwing road blocks on everything in sight. Then the GOP will no doubt suddenly have second thoughts about the filibuster as it currently exists.

Some Republican should give that exact speech word for word (except exchanging the words democrat/republican) on the senate floor.

In our country, there now seems to be one law for the Democrats and another for the Republicans—and the Republicans let them get away with it.

The Mass. legislature changed the law so a Republican governor couldn’t appoint a successor to a Senator who died or retired. Then they changed it back again when there was a Democrat governor. And they changed it ex-post-facto, which is illegal. And they kept their guy in the Senate even after a Republican was elected in his place, which was clearly illegal.

And the Republicans just sat on their hands and said nothing.

The Repubs are just applying lessons learned a couple of years ago which were instituted by the 110th Congress when Bush was Pres.

Reid's pro forma “blocks” were particularly "beneficial" to all.

If it wasn't for double-standards, Liberals would have no standards at all.

I’m still in favor of doing away with the filibuster.

For one, it will mean that future Congresses can much, much more easily undo the damage of past Congresses.

Most importantly, though, I believe the filibuster negates processes that were clearly spelled sout in the Constitution by misusing the authority of each house of congress to set their own rules.

For all practical purposes, the Senate has surreptitiously amended the Constitution.

Since we recently remembered how Lautenberg was illegally installed in NJ in the name of "giving voters a competitive election" (never mind that it was competitive and their guy was losing), we should recall that simultaneous with arguing to drop Toricelli, the Dems were arguing to keep the dead Patsy Mink on the ballot in Hawaii, and to let votes for her count for her replacement.

Similarly in Missouri, the Dems wanted to keep the dead Mel Carnahan on the ballot and let the votes count for the governor to appoint a replacement as if he died already in office.

Republicans would never try these audacious schemes, nor get away with them if the did.

We need a heavy discussion on doing away with the Filibuster before we do so...Harry told us in 2005 why it was such a terrible idea.
