At Lewis Funeral, Obama Calls Filibuster a ‘Jim Crow Relic’

The New York Times - Maggie Astor & Shane Goldmacher - LINK

<excerpted>

Former President Barack Obama called for sweeping changes to voting laws on Thursday, including making Election Day a national holiday and implementing automatic voter registration, and he embraced eliminating the filibuster if necessary to enact those changes, calling the legislative tool a “Jim Crow relic.”

*snip*

“Bull Connor may be gone, but today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans,” Mr. Obama said, speaking from the same pulpit once used by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “George Wallace may be gone, but we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.”

Is that the same filibuster used by Democrats on the 1964 Civil Rights bill, and (I believe ) the 1965 Voting Rights bill?

That filibuster??

Biden was wrong. He’s not clean and articulate. He’s greasy. A real piece of filth.

Why was there even a funeral in the first place? I thought those along with indoor gatherings especially at churches was banned due to covid? I guess either it’s one more case of the virus being super smart and selective or one more example of democrat hypocrisy

The left are incapable of learning from mistakes. Probably because they don’t believe they make any. It’s always someone else’s fault. Well, let’s “hope” it’s the voters fault again when they lose in November. 
 

Obama is trash.

Why Republicans Are Suddenly Thanking Harry Reid for a 2013 Tweet About Filibuster Reform

BY MAHITA GAJANAN 

JUNE 28, 2018

Time.com

When the Senate votes on President Donald Trump’s replacement for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, just a simple majority will be sufficient to get through the confirmation process. It’s a vote that Democrats – who have 49 seats – seem more than likely to lose. Gone is the filibuster rule that required 60 votes to move forward.

Many Republicans are thanking former Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for that. And they’re retweeting his tweet from 2013 – shedding light on how one decision by the party five years ago helped put Democrats in this position.

In 2013, Reid invoked the “nuclear option,” a historic move that changed a long-standing Senate rule, dropping the number of votes needed to overcome a filibuster from 60 to a simple majority for executive appointments and most judicial nominations — a decision he justified because of trouble getting through court confirmations in the latter half of the Obama Administration.

At the time, then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and many other Republicans warned Reid that he would regret implementing the nuclear option.

“What goes around comes around. And someday they’re going to be in the minority,” Republican Sen. John Thune warned.

(more short-sighted democrat thinking here)

If I were to step into any Barack Obama, I would probably just discard those shoes.  Some things just don't clean off ....

Well, you holier than thou Republicans on the Hill, just remember this when it comes to being upset at the idea of nuking the filibuster. Do it now, to your advantage, because as soon as the Democrats have a Senate majority you can kiss it goodbye anyway. It's going away, so make hay while the sun shines.

Fox was on at my local deli this and they were playing Obama's comments.  It reminded me how much I hate his tone, cadence and BS.  That is a human POS only surpassed by those who revere and support him on the despicable scale.

Yup, the slimeball is as phony as a three-dollar bill. That's in addition to his corruption, dishonesty, racism, hypocrisy, etc.

Cultural approbation, perhaps?  His mom was cracker-white.
