Dems give GOP its just desserts

Finally, the Democrats smacked the Republican Party in the face by changing the rules and allowing presidential nominees to be approved by a simple majority — the way it should be.

The GOP can cry all it wants, but the fact is since President Dwight Eisenhower, Republican presidents have been filibustered nine times, Democrats 65 times so far with 54 against President Barack Obama alone.

By the time Obama is out of office, it is projected to be at least 83. Could it be only because he is a Democrat, or does his race have something to do with it?

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) threatened future retaliations of obstruction, or as the GOP calls it, business as usual.
