Obama shouted like he was trying to raise the dead.

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. 

Someone blogged many years ago that the left can't learn from their mistakes because they believe themselves always to be correct.  The blog ended with the line image thousands of people marking in a circle yelling over and over, "We are smart because we are right, and we are right because we are smart."

For those of you foolish enough to believe the saintly Barack "Hussein in the Membrane" Obama, the first filibuster was done against President Andrew Jackson in 1837. Apparently Jim Crow laws have been around for a very very long time.

Quote

Minority party senators soon figured out that talking endlessly on the Senate floor could prolong debate indefinitely and gum up progress on a bill or nomination. The first successful filibuster was recorded in 1837, when a group of Whig senators who opposed President Andrew Jackson filibustered to prevent Jackson’s allies from expunging a resolution of censure against him.

Like the rest of the American history, Democrats screw things up.

The filibuster’s habit of stalling the legislative process frustrated various senators throughout the 1800s, who tried unsuccessfully multiple times to abolish the rule. Finally, in 1917, President Woodrow Wilson urged change after his push to arm merchant ships against German U-boats during the run-up to World War I failed in the face of senate filibusters.

Quote

Among the most notable examples of when the Senate managed to invoke cloture was in 1967 when a group of Southern lawmakers tried filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Filibusters against the landmark act, which included bans on lynching and discrimination in public accommodations, went on for 57 days before the Senate mustered a supermajority of 67 votes to call for cloture.

Don't you just hate those racist stupid southern Republican's? Oh wait they were DEMOCRATS that filibustered the civil rights act.

Quote

The bill then moved to the U.S. Senate, where southern and border state Democrats staged a 75-day filibuster—among the longest in U.S. history. On one occasion, Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, a former Ku Klux Klan member, spoke for over 14 consecutive hours.

You remermber Byrd, Biden and HRC's buddy?
