If it wasn't for hypocrisy the Democrats wouldn't have anything to stand for.
"Back in 2005, Democrats told Frist they would shut down all Senate operations if he exercised the nuclear option."
In 2005, then-Senator Obama said,
"I am also aware that the Founding Fathers established the filibuster as a means of protecting the minority from the tyranny of the majority -- and that protection, with some changes, has been in place for over 200 years."
In 2013, President Obama said,
"But today's pattern of obstruction, it just isn't normal. It's not what our founders envisioned."
In 2005, Hillary Clinton said,
We have confirmed 95% of your nominees. And if you can't get 60 votes for a nominee, perhaps you should think about who you are sending to us to be confirmed."
In 2013, Senator Ron Johnson said,
"The vast majority, well in excess of 95 percent to 98 percent of his nominations, have been approved in a pretty expeditious basis."
In 2005, the Center for American Progress wrote,
"As early as this week, a "nuclear option" could be invoked to remove the 200-year-old tradition of the Senate filibuster, the tool that empowers 41 or more senators to prevent a narrow majority from abusing its power. The filibuster is one of the only ways to encourage genuine bipartisan cooperation and compromise on important issues that come before the Senate."
In 2013, the Center for American Progress wrote,
"Today's vote to reform the Senate rules is a victory for the American people and an important step towards getting Washington back to work. Today's targeted reforms come after years of unprecedented partisan obstruction by the same Republicans who shut down the government and repeatedly held our economy hostage."
There is so much more hypocrisy among Democrats of all stripes it is gagging.
