Sen. Klobuchar Regrets Ending The Filibuster
washingtonpost.com ^ | September 2

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who sits on the Judiciary Committee, said Sunday that she regrets that her party eliminated the filibuster for approving most judicial nominees.

When Democrats controlled the Senate in 2013, then-Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) invoked what's known as the “nuclear option” to get around Republicans blocking President Barack Obama's judicial nominees.

Now, with the nuclear option firmly in place, Democrats have little power to stop Kavanaugh's confirmation.

During an interview Sunday on NBC News's “Meet the Press,” Klobuchar said that, in retrospect, the Democrats should have left the procedure alone.

New words are needed; stupidity this deep should be painful to them, instead it hurts the rest of us.

Wonder how much a video of a homeless woman beating the teeth out of "Front Hole" Klobuchar's lying face would go for?

20 bucks? 50 bucks?   thinking face

The crazy thing is their timing on it. If I’m not mistaken, they had between 51 and 60 votes continuously from 2006 through 2014, not to mention for decades before that. So they blow up the filibuster in 2013? Smart.

” Klobuchar said that, in retrospect, the Democrats should have left the procedure alone."

Just like a thief who is sorry for getting caught.

It doesn’t pay to be stupid and mean. Payback’s a bitch and so is Sen. Klarkbar.

Shes lying.

She was happy to get rid of it then.

She just isnt happy now the republicans benefit from it.

Shes unhappy they cant have different rules for democrats and republicans.

I pray all socialist hypocrites such as her die violent, painful deaths. Socialists like her have killed hindreds of millions of people in the name of socialist progress.
